OH NO!!! NOT HEAD GASKETS!!!

So, my truck has over 90k tuned miles on the current set of head gaskets and it's mildly puking during a steep grade while pulling the toy hauler... I've replaced a few things here or there, but think it's time to have BulletProof Diesel work their magic on my truck once again. It's going in the shop tomorrow and they'll be installing new heads with hardened seats and a few other "things".

Are you going to try to identify what/where the failure occurred? I'm interested cause I'm going through the same thing now but only got 20k towing miles out of it before it bit me again. Wondering if it could be a common area like say, at the number two cylinder the hg keep failing for some unknown reason on multiple engines. Just trying to think outside the box and see if it can be narrowed down.
