Idk, I just feel like they wouldn't be worth anything other than gas saving... and I actually do some type of work with my truck, I feel like a 3.0 or 4.0 would be better for me...

What's your honest opinion of your 4cylinder?

It's fucking awesome! I haul my 500 pound snowmobile with it and it does just fine! It's easy to repair and there's a lot off free mods you can do to up the power plus 20+ mpg!
