Got the Truck back!!!!! EXPENSIVE OIL LEAK!!

good story------> so my trucks been in the shop for 3 weeks for an oil leak. a very expensive oil leak. Where the dipstick goes in your oil pan the nut thing fell off and the bolt fell in the oil pan. the only way to get your oil pan off is to pull the engine. well i called around and everyone charges around 2k. thats alot of money to fix a 30 dollar part. so i got to thinking.....looked at the bank account....... and decided that im paying labor to pull this damned engine out then i might as well do something else with it besides fix a 30 dollar freakin problem. so we talked and we ordered stage 3 hybrids. studs, valve springs. fuel system with fuel bowl delete, kinda homeade but works better than a fass and cheaper, regulated return, push rods and of course......fix the damn oil pan. so last night the guys over at Truck Source Diesel ( <----- highly recomended, i have bought everything for my truck from them ) stayed till 10 last night gettin the tunes right and finishing it up for me cause i had to drive 200 miles last night. we drove it about 20 miles and checked for leaks. everything was good. i drove 200 miles and runs like a champ and gettin better gas milage. sorry for the life story but the guys at truck source did a really good job and my truck on 40's will move.

2000 PSD CC 4x4 Long bed
12 inches of lift with 40's on 20's.
