One tire isn't going to be best for every one. They're many differant driving situations. I like the ProComp XATs in 35/12.50R17. I drive mostly on pavement and some on gravel or sandy roads. The...

Mobile Delvac CI-4+ is not as good as some of the better CI-4+ oils. Delo 400,Guardall QLT and Fina Gold Cappa have a TBN of 12. But I would use it before using any CJ oil.

All the dealer is going to do is remove the old seal, install the new one and torque the nut down. "It works if they installed the upgraded seal for synthetic oil" Some of the seals that came in the...

So it looks like if you're not driving a 6.7 still wearing the DPF plain old TCW-3 is the best fuel additive.

You can find E rated 305/65/17s and 33/12.50/17s "Extreem A/Ts, ATZs, and Fun Countrys to be just a few" But the 285s are rated for more weight and I believe last a bit longer.

It pays to talk to your local oil distributor. The last 12 cases of CI-4+ I bought with a TBN of 12 cost me $6.45 gal. I know where a pallet "32 cases" of Guardall QLT CI-4+ TBN 12 is for $10 gal....

I have found running ULSD my EGTs are higher, I get more smoke and noise. Adding Power Service quietens things down but that's about it. Unbranded ULSD has no additives and I would recomend adding...

The grid heaters draw 120 amps! That's hard on batterys and alternators. Arround here you just don't need them or block heaters.

I would disconect and take out the cables going between the relays and the grid heaters. I don't believe they do much good for cold starting and are battery killers.

The AAM TracRite if worked much leaves fine metal on the magnet and in the bottom of the hog head. It's a good idea to change the fluid often.

About the only thing I noticed is quicker spool off idle and about 1lb more boost at WOT. EGTs run about the same.

I believe they're mostly the same except for the plastic ones. The stock ones must be pretty good. I can't tell much differance in the Spearco and the one I took off.

I removed mine without any damage but you will need a torch and some help. The factory pulls the clamps down enough to put a good crimp on. If you were planning on reinstalling it I would just...

I haven't heard of too many stopping up. They just quit working. After removing mine my EGTs went down and my turbo seemed to spool quicker off idle.

It's not good to run your engine over filled with oil. It will foam badly and your oil pump will cavatate starving your bearings for oil. I'm not sure if 1 gal over filled is enough to hurt. You...

There' no reason to run CJ oil if you don't have a DPF. I would give away the CJ oil and just run CI-4 off road oil.

It may not hurt to run the CI oil for one oil fill. If the rings are seated you won't have much zinc or phosphates getting to the DPF.

I hope you're right about not needing it but the truck just runs better with Power service added. I get a bit lower EGTs and better fuel economy. Enough to justify the added expence.

It may but I don't plan on using 2-stroke oil. I have been using Power Service sence having to use ULSD with good results so far and it puts my EGTs back where it was when I was running LSD.

I have also heard about carbon build up using 2-stroke oil in the fuel. It also makes a oily mess in the exhaust system. With additives designed for diesel fuel I don't see much need for 2-stroke oil...

The gaskits will last many changes. Mines been changed 6 times and no leaks. Just snug the screws down enough to seal. They won't back out. As far as oil goes you can use any GL-5 80-90 W and I don't...
