Default F-250 Super Duty tow rig upgrades and maintance build

I've owned my 02 Super Duty since July 08 and have decided that this truck is too good to let go of, so im putting down the money and time I've been lacking on it to bring it back to show room new and give it a few upgrades at the same time :) plan's will include exterior body clean up and paint work, drive train work and interior improvements

*Current specs*
02 F-250 crew cab lariat short bed 7.3 auto 4x4 with 132k miles. Came fully loaded from the factory. I've installed a leveling kit up front (came with air bags in the rear), Tony Wildman 6 position chip, Afe stage 2 intake, 4" Turbo back exhaust, 05 conversion headlights and cut down grill, warn hubs, spray on bed liner and a goose neck hitch.

*Stage 1 work that's underway*
new drilled/slotted rotors front and rear with ceramic pads, xfr ball joints, tie rod and drag link, 4 new shocks (belsteins or ranchos), new 17" aluminum wheels with 315/70 Good year duratrac tires, 08 tow mirror with heat and lights, 05-07 front bumper with the Harley grill, pocket style fender flares, 05 lower dash w/ upfitter switches, 6.0 intercooler and trans cooler, all fluids/filters flushed and replaced then a full interior and exterior detail.

*stage 2*
Ship it off for paint and body work. By luck I have no major rust issues on the cab, bed or doors just surface rust. So I will have that repaired along with a few dents. I want nothing fancy, just other then to make it look factory again.

*stage 3*
This will happen come winter or spring but I will have the audio system improved with new speakers and a sub amp combo, new drivers seat bottom leather and a newer rear flip and tumble rear leather bench. Under the hood ill get an adrenaline hpop and regulated fuel setup for a little more power and some tranny valve body upgrades

In total should run a couple thousand for all this; minus paint, wheels & tires, whatnot... but its better it save my truck now then to have the payments of a newer truck.



My truck from last year, doesn't have the 20's installed right now

my 2002 is a v10 gasser. f250 super cab, short bed, lariat, 4x4.
its one of the best vehicles i have ever owned.

at 40k-4 tires (305/70/16 toyo open countrys)
at 60k-front pads and rotors
at 75k changed rear gear lube and friction modifier(it was chattering a little)
at 90k 4 nice used rims and 4 new kelly safari trex (285/75/16)
at 100k i did- ball joints (they had a little slop would have been fine for a while)
wheel bearings (the left side was making a little noise, right was fine. replaced both)
changed all the fluids, except rear axle and radiator.
at 110k did rear pads and rotors

new springs and 1" leveling kit going on soon.

my truck was way over gvw with the truck camper and jeep in tow.
it has performed very well. it hauled 17k without any issue.
it has never not started, or need a tow.
it was my first ford truck. got a sweet deal on it.

1" leveling kit going on soon.

I told you next year fall or winter its getting the cummins and I only want 500 HP , right now I just want to do all the necessary maintenance to make it a safe and reliable tow pig and dd.

This all sparked Monday when I realized how bald my tired were. No use to by new tires if the steering is out of allignment and the brakes are shot, which all are. Some of the parts intercooler, trans cooler, dash parts I've had for a few years now and never installed.

The motor work isn't what your expecting as its not for performance but reliability. The adrenaline high pressure oil pump and a regulated fuel setup will help balance out the oil and fuel to the injectors ensuring they pump at a balanced rate. The 6.0 innercooler helps lower egt. All that might get me 25 extra HP then I have now but keeps the engine happier and running reliable.

Plus trying to pump more power into my 7.3 only can make it weaker as powder metal cast rods get dangerious over 400 hp. I don't wanna install forged rods or do more turbo upgrades then a wicked turbo wheel.

Been growing cobb webs for the last month or so. My add and short attention span has kicked in so time to fix my only running DD before it strands me

As for the 205 support im still deciding where the support is gonna go Scott. Either off the pto cover or the rear output, I ran outta light last night

Whoops - I can see I'm too late...

Never use drilled rotors on anything you expect to stop safely (for long).
