As I hear, it depends on where you live. It's dry like Arizona, diesel tech Ron said he never checked it unless the light came on. If you live somewhere humid, some suggest once a month. I heard once a week, but I'm not doing that. Some ppl suggest never do it unless the light comes on. I think it's probably good measure to do it once a month.

Haha, I was too for a long time. I don't know what the real interval should be, but my plug was starting to corrode, so I had to get it out of the system.

Me too, until as of late. I've seen some dirt in my drain off, but I think that was the old plug corroding. I don't expect to see that anymore, and I barely if ever have water in the drain off.

What's so good about the PMF brake lines, just braided?

Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
Apparently they are well insulated , protected , 5 layers n braided. A full set of stock lines aren’t insanely cheaper so I just want to do this once / last time.

Just put I the S&B cold air intake. I’m pretty much stock right now, but I have a KC stage 1 coming this week and will compliment it with innovative tunes. Not expecting anything major performance gains but I like buying **** for the 6.0l and want the 10 blade whistle lol

You might be quite surprised what a difference that turbo will make along with the custom tunes...just saying.

I just installed the S&B on mine tonight. How about that?!

Replaced ICP sensor and pigtail. It was actually my first time doing one of those (im sure it wasn't my last). Im stoked that the surging rpm's and bucking forward at stop lights quit after the replacement.

It's not directly for my truck, but it is for working on them. Bought a Milwaukee M12 Fuel 3/8 impact ratchet and an M18 Fuel high torque 1/2 impact driver w/friction ring.

That 1/2 inch impact is strong. The first bolt I used it on was an exhaust bolt, and stripped it the head into a circle. I ended up Torching and cutting that particular bolt off.

I know, I stretched a lug with it on my old hub when using my nephew's. I'm glad it has torque adjustment settings; I didn't realize that when I used his. This was good news to me, because I was thinking I needed to buy the mid torque version as well, but that will not be necessary.
