It's been more than a year since we completed our build-up of this 1999 F250 7.3L Power Stroke. We introduced this project truck back in the February 2009 issue of Diesel Tech.
We'd picked the truck up from a Goodyear Tire store for just $3,500 and with just 220,000 miles; the truck was still in great mechanical shape and good running condition. While it wasn't the coolest-looking truck on the road, at such a low initial investment, we knew we could really transform this 2wd truck into a real diesel-powered pavement pounder. Our hopes for the build-up were to show our readers what a little elbow grease and some good aftermarket parts could do on an older diesel truck.
