One of the most ineffective tire swap jobs ever done.... wife has different work schedule and didn’t want to sit at tire shop for 4+hrs. So towed the wife’s suby and been little over 3.5hrs since drop off. Got some general grabber at2s since I’m tired of swapping summer/winter tires and taking up space. Now the dog and I have about run out of things to do lol.

May head to Lowe’s/tractor supply since the dog can hang out there too.

I liked my Grabber AT2's they do pack up with snow pretty quickly but always felt like they still had traction

It was a tie between those and the Yokohoma geolander at g105. They make the BFgoodrich all terrain‘s in her size like my truck has but they’re very $$$ and way heavier than oem.

Figured will run them this winter and see how the wife likes them. Heck she ran her summer tires last winter and did just fine LOL these out to be a nice upgrade.

Added two gallons of oil this morning to get the truck to start. That may have been my issue the other day, but I didn't think of checking the oil level then. I;m blowing some smoke out the tailpipe, but it smells of fuel and from the engine noise, I may have lost an injector. Having a guy check it out tonight. As for the oil, my turbo is leaking pretty good, so that is probably it.
Questions:

1. How long do injectors normally last? (I've had these in for 120k miles)

2. If it is a bad injector--and the only one that a system check shows is bad, should I get all 8 replaced or just the four on the side of the bad one (I figure at least all the injectors on the one side since the labor cost will mostly already be paid)?

3. Should I replace the glow plug wiring harness (and maybe glow plugs) in there since it and the glow plugs were done at that time as well--just as a routine maintenance?


4. What would be a great turbo to get to replace this one? A friend of mine was saying about a place near Denver that has turbos with the EBPV delete-dunno the brand yet, though. He said they go for $1,800.

5. Any idea why this forum had me logged out? I wasn't getting any notices the last couple days and when I went in here to post, I had to log in.

If I was shopping for a turbo the only one I'd look at is KC Turbo. Charlie also has injectors. Also take a look a @[email protected] for parts and answers.

Thanks. Turns out my turbo is fine--although there is an exhaust leak in back so I will be looking for some new "y" pipes. Minor oil leaking from there. I also have a split injector (#8).

Why KC Turbo's only? Also, which one--there are many different models. I run stock injectors and will eventually be looking for a solid running, long-lasting turbo. I don't plan on racing it I don't care to burn rubber all over the pavement. Do want something for great acceleration when needed, and good for towing up and down mountain passes.

Because Charlie build the best turbos and he has great customer service and loyalty. Call Charlie (or Corey) and tell him what you have and what you want, neither guy will try to over sell you

Thanks--I will keep that in mind when I need to replace it. Any idea on what bellowed up-pipe kit I should get? I've looked at Amazon and they go anywhere from $60 to several hundred. I don't need the "y", just the pipes and associated hardware. The injectors are already costing me over a grand.

Think I'll keep my original boots since they still seem good and plyable--save a few bucks that way.

Depends on what injectors you might plan on going with down the road. If you stay stock, then this turbo.
