Exclamation I BLEW MY TRUCK UP SO LETS HERE WHAT I SHOULD DO TO IT WHILE ITS IN THE SHOP!

WELL I NEED SOME OPINONS PLEASE.

ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO I F-ED MY TRUCK. I WAS PUKING COOLANT FOR AWHILE BUT DUMBA$$ ME DIDN'T PAY THAT MUCH ATTENTION TO IT. THEN I GOT CRAZY AND DONE SEVERAL DONUTS. THE NEXT MORNING I FIRED MY TRUCK UP AND IT ROLLED LOTS OF WHITE SMOKE. TALKED TO MY LOCAL DEALER AND THEY SAID MORE THAN LIKING I BUSTED MY HEAD GASKETS. BEING ITS A SALVAGE TITLE TRUCK I CAN'T GET IT FIXED UNDER WARRANTY FROM WHAT MY LOCAL DEALER TOLD ME. JUST GREAT!!!

ANYWAYS, IF ANYONE HAS HAD TO PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR THIS LET ME KNOW WHAT KINDA CASH I AM GONNA BE SPENDING.

ALSO WHILE ITS GETTING FIXED I'D LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND DO SOME MODS TO IT. LETS HERE EVERYONE'S THOUGHTS PLEASE. IT WILL BE DAILY DRIVEN, DOING SOME OFF AND ON TOWING, NEEDS TO MAKE LOTS OF POWER WITH GOING EXTREMELY TO WILD, NEEDS TO BE RELIABLE, AND MOST DEFINETLY BE ABLE TO RAISE 9 KINDS OF CANE.

LASTLY, IF ANYONE CLOSE BY MY AREA (SAVANNAH, TENN. 38372) KNOWS WHERE SOME GOOD DIESEL SHOPS ARE THAT REASONABLE IN PRICE AND GOOD AT WORKING ON A 6.0 PLEASE POINT ME IN THEIR DIRECTION.

HOPE TO HERE LOTS OF RESPONSES, THANKS FOR ANY AND ALL HELP.

-CORY
