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!
