Default ford f250 turbodiesel

our 1996 turbo diesel f250 was like less then 6k dollars. it is a 2wd, four door 7.3l turbo diesel ford non intercooled.the tranny was rebuilt at 100k by another owner, adn the frame and engine had 250k miles when we got her. we put a water fuel seperator in her, and a new glow plug set. and we were off and running. now she has had a full front bearing and brake service done by us. and a few things i cant recall, but over al lta 260k miles she is still going strong. 17 mpg towing highway with a 3k lb car trailer and 3k pound car on it. all up 11k pouds going down the road, in a big v8 turbo diesel. my father was a diesel mechanic in the navy, so he knows diesel.i got into diesel in heavy equipment school. so that is our take, it has a bed camp cover in the bed too. to keep our stuff safe and dry in bad weather.+
