their not that hard to change. Just be careful not to damage the electrical connections under the valve cover like I did. Their is an exellent thread on how to change out injectors.

^ Agree'd... I'm going through the same issue but I also have a bad knock associated with that. I know I need to replace my injectors, but I also need to determine why they failed - more the likely low fuel pressure.

Do remember, anything you try on your truck is on you - following a DIY this involved is entirely at your own risk.

It's a fortunate failure... I was going to do them - but during the summer.

My truck will be mucho faster
