Newbie 6.0L owner from IL

Hello just drove home 169 miles in a 2003 Excursion with 230K. It drove great and got great mileage but noticed a few hiccups when accelerating so I will be active on this forum searching for answers, tips and maintenance suggestions. Up to now I have used 1/2, 3/4 and 1 ton gassers to occasionally tow and needed something that didn't have to stop at every gas station. Hope to learn a lot and contribute too!

Anyone know of any good diesel shops in this area?
