Questions and Opinions

Ok i got a few questions and need some opinions.

Does anyone use Optima batteries in there truck and if so which ones do you prefer or recomend?

When you replace your GPR which one should i get i think theres like two or three choices.

Last is it better to replace your injectors or if possible to rebuild them yourself?

Thanks, Evan

I use Optima Yellow Tops and am very happy with them. Best price I found was -> http://www.batterygiant.com/displayi...p?id=D34-78-YT = $124 + shipping

Only 1 choice for the GP Relay, that's Stancor/White-rogers #586-902 -> STANCOR 586-902 is in stock! | Buy 586902 | 586 902 | Onlinecomponents.com

Not sure who knows alot about rebuilding your own injectors,,, I think I'd buy 'em myself
