Are you monitoring your truck or only using the idiot gauges?

They are called idiot gauges for a reason lol they aren't accurate at all and you need to get a monitor in your truck ASAP to know the vitals of the engine. If you have an iPhone, iPod touch or an iPad you could look into the dashboss. I have it and use it and love it. If you don't than I would suggest either an edge insight cs or cts or a scangauge II.

Let me know of you need to order an edge cs/cts as I can get you a good deal on one. I work for Steath Automotive and can hook you up.
