OK, i have a 2008, with 113k miles. bone stock. no real problems. BUT. you guys are scaring the hell-outa-me. All these posts of major failures
My truck truck is used about 12 to 15 times a year. Mostly to tow a 6000lb boat to the coast which is a 4 to 5 hour trip. Can not afford a break down 5 hours from home, with that much boat in tow.
All i want is a dependable, competent, economical tow machine.
Question is. what should i do to the truck to make it more dependable, and economical? Can you help me convince my wife
that the money spent on something that I really dont need, is good money. Is the egr delete first, tunner, or what, is most bang for the buck, or which is first?
PS. No inspections where I live. No warranty left on the truck.
thanks for your help. I'm a retired aircraft mech, so I can wrench myself.
