Default My truck just hit 50K yesterday....

What should I do to commemorate the celebration? I was thinking switching to full synthetic oil and a drop-in K&N

I had to do the ball joint about 6 months ago. The thing I'm most worried about is the coolant flushes, my last car was a '97 Taurus GL, so I know how the Vulcans tend to get clogged cooling systems.

HA! I'm still at 49,200 in my late 03.

Definitely switch to a full synthetic. Definitely a nice wash. Interior detail. Engine bay detail.
