I'm letting my diesel Ford go.

I've posted bout it any number of times in this forum but for those who don't remember:

2000 Ford F-350 SRW 4x2 Powerstroke) (Navistar 444E) engine HEUI injection.

342,000 miles (almost all in a 40 mile one-way commute) No rust

Everyday 24-25 MPG Truck currently has no tonneau. With tonneau it gets 26-27.

Transmission is a ZF6-650 six-speed manual with a Gear Vendor 20% electric overdrive. 3.08:1 axle ratio. OEM sized rubber < 50,000 miles 1350 RPM @ 70 MPH.

Lowered three inches to improve MPG. Very rugged air dam to minimize airflow under the truck.

Driver's side seat shell needs to be fixed. Rest of interior is pristine. CD player. Rhino lined bed. May need a modified grille.

Excellent LED headlights and a powerful LED light bar relayed to the brights.
LED taillights.

New brakes. 203 degree stat means very warm on below zero days. AC blows 43 degree supply air.

Check out my avatar for a picture of it with a radical fastback cap. If you want more pictures, I can take some and e-mail them to you.

I no longer have a mission for a truck. Put half of aerohead's aero treatment on this thing and you can get astounding MPG.

It needs a good ecomomodder home but I ain't giving it away. $15,000 for someone on this forum.
