Default Tune-Up time!

Well fellas, just hit 77k on the truck and I need to do a little tune up. Got on Rock Auto to get a cart together and I think i have everything I need----All $115 worth in just tune up parts! I could have went cheaper but I want good Parts



I am going to do the following:

Change Oil and filter (not listed)
Change Fuel Filter
Air Filter (I want a K&N, anybody got one)
Front Ceramic Brakes
Rear Shoes
Clean MAF
Clean IAC
Spark Plugs
Check Fluids (will replace rearend and transfer case oils later)

Also had tires rotated yesterday and Im gonna need an alignment now. Between the ditch and that big ass mudhole musta messed it up a little, I dk.

I will do, I may not go super in depth on everything because I think we have thinkgs like spark plug change. The only bad thing is this is like a 3/4 tuneup lol. Im not replacing any fluids other than oil and im actually doing the oil this weekend. All this other stuff comes in the next week or two seeing as it is expensive. but yeah [er your request, ill do a little writeup for noobs.

Sad thing is, we need a nice writeup on how to change oil because there are many peeps on here that do not know how. So i shall do it

Also, since I AM MR CLEAN, when spring hits, I will show how i clean my truck as a writeup. good things to come
