I've pulled 4 grand with mine going up a 11% grade cruising 40 (at my discretion, wasn't forced) and I still get 20mpg, sooo I'm happy

But I hate the fact it's not a standard....

I had a lean bank 2 for quite a while. Turns out the fuel pump filter (at the bottom of the pump assembly) was clogged and the check valve was failing. Found it after new injectors, plenum gaskets, inline fuel filter, etc. Next time I have to deal with the fuel pump, I'm pulling the bed to get at it!

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, I hate how my lift isn't on, I hate how it's only 7AM and I'm waiting for a 2 hour round trip road trip to trade a street bike for a 17 foot boat, hate how it's not payday yet and I don't have my lights yet, HATE how the Cali Meet is getting closer and closer and my lift, tires, lights, tint, and everything else isn't done

YAY

I just had both heads replaced on mine last week... I've heard 3.0s are bad about misfiring cylinders and what not. Thankfully my truck runs like its brand new! ("knock on wood"). Hope yours doesn't do what mine did.
