    Odd to see a 7.3 PSD get crispy over an electrical issue. Did he have a big stereo or anything like that?

    They don't make diesel p/u motors like that anymore. I had a 99.5 PSD and a 2002 PSD and loved those trucks.

    he had his friend hook up a sub woofer and put in a different cd player a while ago, think this contributed to it?
    he also had HID headlights, and LED lights put inside of the cab

    I had a 96 deville, Aluminum head gaskets blows in 3 months after I purchased it, due to the blown gaskets the transmission fucks up. Since I was so in love with the ride I decide to listen to a mechanic who promises to rebuild the transmission and take care of the blown head gaskets. 4 months after that, transmission fails again, and guess what? the head gaskets blows once again. over $8,000 down the drain. lesson learned, don't assume the vehicle is reliable because its pretty. If I would had done my homework, I would had stayed very far away from and devile.

    It very well could have since there's not much to the factory electrical system of those 7.3 PSD's or the Super Duty chassis the reside in.

    I still miss my 02 PSD Crew Cab.....

    I had a 05 Passat TDI with Tip. Turned it into a high 14 second car and dropped the #3cyl partly due to modding and partly due to them using ceramic glowplugs and having an oil wash down issue in cycl 3 causing the plugs to break then washing down the cyl wall. Patched the car together, traded it on a new Mustang GT back in 06. Furd dealer never knew what hit 'em.


    I just picked up a '11 G37S (in my av) last month and love that 7spd corner hanging rocket.

    I had a Dodge Stratus for about 8 months, it was a complete piece of shit. Fuck Dodge and Chevy, we fund them to make shitty cars. Funny that Ford took nothing and makes the best American cars now without question...

    I agree with that ^^^. I wanted a new Explorer but Ford is having major issues with that MS Sync nonsense, so I went another direction.

    I am on the fence about a new Mustang GT or a 4 door F-150... until this catastrophy of an economy settles though I am going to rock my 11 year old Toyota that has zero issues.

    Considered and drove both. The new Ecoboost F-150 is bad fukking ass and guys are getting 25mpg running 65mph in the flats with them. I still wanted a 'trunk' to throw/hide my excess shit in and p/u's don't provide that short of a $1000+ cover.

    The 5 liter mustang lays down and goes and even the 6spd auto was fast reacting and shifting. My bitch with that was I already had a coupe (G35) and was getting tired of dragging my ass across the pavement along with a small trunk and backseat.

    I came this | | close to ordering an Explorer 2 months ago when suddenly several colors including Kona Blue disappeared. I was going to order a XLT 4wd w/o that Sync shit then have an aftermarket system put in.

    lol the fucker just told me he had an extra battery in front of the back seat by the console for the amp, but he says this was definitely not his fault
    then i wonder why he had us rip all the wires leading to that battery out of the burnt wreck

    Nice. My Passat even modded would get 39 with the cruise set at 80. That model Passat was about the size of today's Jetta. After Katrina hit, I could have unloaded that car on Autotrader for $1000 less than I paid for it even with 50,000 miles because people were panicking over $4/gal gas. Unfortunately I decided not to sell it.


    That's a good looking car you got there.
