Got a few questions!

Hey guys, im wondering how often you guys service your trucks. And also, on every regular service, what do you guys change? One last one haha, what brand do you guys use?

Thanks in advanced, Devin

What type of service are you referring to exactly? Fill out your signature so we can see what all you have done to your truck. I don't have a 7.3L but we change the oil every 3-5K miles depending on what kinds of miles we have put on the truck. As far as oil, we prefer Motorcraft.

I try to stick to the schedule in the owners manual as best I can. I chage what ever is listed for that service which is always oil and usually a fuel filter. I tend to use Fram!
