DIY maintenance

I was worried about oil changes and fuel water seperator filter changes.....HAH! I spent about an hour this afternoon changing the oil, filter and fuel filters on my truck. I was really worried about starting it after the fuel filter change....cycled the key 4 times and she fired right up! Man it feels good to do your own stuff! Bought the filters (racor's) from dieselfilters.com and they shipped them fast and cheap!

My first DIY was not too long ago either. Truck is ready for some steering/suspension maintanence but I'm still a little cautious about digging that far in...
