Oil Change with Motorcraft filter and Rotella 15W40. Also removed the insulation off the IC pipe. So now instead of ripped and dirty, now it looks fuzzy. I ran out of time tonight and didn't have time to clean it up, so it'll have to wait until later. But it's not hard to remove, so no big deal.
When you get to cleaning the fuzz off try using wd-40. When I pulled everthing off mine I sprayed it down with wd-40 and it cam off fairly clean and had minimal cleaning to do with the fuzz using a drill and wire wheel.

Just got back from our trip the dunes. Got almost 17mpg towing our quad trailer so no complaints here.

Rode my quad probably 14 hours in 3 days lol I'm a little sore

I'll have to give that a try. I really want to be able to show off my engine eventually. Make it look as clean as possible.

Truck running fine--did notice oil spot right under the drain plug, so I will go ahead and get the Fumoto. Also want to get some bright LED lights strips to put under the hood--any suggestions? Want them bright and waterproof.
