November 2016 PowerStroke, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

This is my 7.3L Power Stroke that’s raised four inches with 35-inch tires. I bought it because I love the solid 7.3L engine and it’s still a good old truck to this day! It has an SCT programmer six-position chip, bigger turbo back, a K&N air filter, and it redlines at 5 G’s. I also have 100 percent over injectors installed on a rebuild kit. I use it to pull trailers and a 25-foot fifth wheel camper and it does it with ease, while getting around 17 mpg on the highway. It’s really not bad for a 2002 pickup and is as solid as can be. It has a good Eaton locker in the rear end, but I still want an air locker in the front. All in due time! It's a beast that can run with a new Duramax that’s belching out coal, but this old Power Stroke can reel them in.
