Tow rig

1997 F-350 XL SRW
Auto trans
7.3 Powerstroke
DP Tuner, switch on the fly (Stock, +80, +60, +40). Last 2 tunes are light and heavy tow and are made to baby the transmission. Tunes by Total Diesel Performance in Rhome TX.
Front buckets and floor console from x-cab truck, rear seat from newer truck and fresh reupholster.
Boost and EGT gauges on dash
A/C very cold
Nice grille guard, heavy headache rack with 5/16" angle all the way down bed rails.
Standard hitch rails in bed
Newer proportional brake controller
Eagle alloy wheels with Michelin LTX tires. Tread 30% on 2, 50% on others.
Two good spare tires and wheels under toolbox
Ranger SSB CB with good antenna, SWR tuned very well.
750W inverter in cab
Floodlights on headache rack
Louvered towing tailgate

Issues - O-rings on one injector are marginal - runs lumpy when cold in winter for about 15 minutes, then is fine all day. In the hotter months it doesn't really act up. Inner front suspension bushings are worn. New inner pivot bushings and radius arm bushings go with the truck. Reverse indicator lights do not work, but not required to pass inspection.

New-ish parts - Fuel pump, IPR, front brake pads, front shocks

Cosmetically this thing is a pig. It tows like a champ and I would not hesitate to tow anything across town or across the country.

$3500 OBO. Would consider trade for cool pre-1970 driver for wife.

Text (preferred) or call 419-967-6737 for more info. Truck is in Abilene.

1986 CJ7, 4.3/700R4/4:1 D300/5.13 shaved, narrowed 9"/D44, Spring under billy goat!
1976 Bronco tubed out under a tree in the dirt, axles under a shed, drivetrain still in another vehicle. Get in line!
