2007 Ford F250 Super Duty


I've gotten serious about modifying cars and racing. This means I have a need for a truck on a regular basis. I wanted to buy a diesel truck since they're more capable for towing. A small local dealer had a 2007 Ford F250 Super Duty for sale which I ended up picking up. I wound up doing quite a bit of maintenance to it in order to bring it into good shape.

This is a pretty well known truck for engine trouble. I think it probably sparked the whole Power Joke thing. However, mine is already studded and I have put in a lot into preventative maintenance. I drive this truck whenever I need to tow or haul something and on rainy/flooding days.

What's going on with this truck?

The truck wound up being way too much of a hassle to maintain. The 6.0L turbo diesel engine is just way too finicky for daily use. Every other week some component was failing that required invasive work. I wound up replacing the truck with a 2019 GMC Denali Ultimate.

The truck already had APR head studs to prevent the head from lifting. It must have blown a gasket in the past. There were some cosmetic issues that I've addressed and I had PSP Diesel here in Houston do the rest. I also had a local off-road shop install Katzkin leather seat covers that came out great.
