50mA draw is about acceptable for a car. for these trucks, expect to see around 100mA at least.
this is how i usually test for a parasitic drain; disconnect one of the battery positive cables. disconnect the hood lamp. correctly range the meter to read amps. place the dmm positive lead on the battery positive post and neg lead on the battery positive terminal. use alligator clips. allow the vehicle to enter sleep mode. usually takes about 3-5 minutes. observe draw
the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
