I talked to our diesel specialist here and he said worst case is down the road 3K for injectors to be replaced. It doesnt smoke on cold start, and starts right up without any shaking or funny noises. Non the less I can't wait to call her mine!
Congrats on getting the truck!.........I knew you would LOL!!

I would find a donor truck with the color you want and use what you can from there. Should be able to find a nice gasser parts truck.

IMO let the red grow on you. You're gonna have a hard time finding all the stuff you need, especially being a 4 door, to switch it over, not mentioning all the work.

I think I might just get seat covers for the front and back and call it good, as it is in great condition...and I know I am going to want to start some mods on the motor, its all stock right now has new exhaust but is just single 3inch , I want to do the exhaust 4inch turbo back with a 5 inch tip, but have no idea where to start with the motor. Chip? Fuel Plate?

These don't require fuel plates, that is a Cummins thing IIRC.


You need:
3 inch downpipe with your exhaust mods,
6637 intake,
boost and egt gauges so you don't melt down your motor
After that there is always:
Electric fuel
Bigger Turbo
Bigger Injectors
Built auto or SMF conversion and built clutch if 5spd.

Good to know thanks! Is there an oil you recommend for the motor, transfercase, and diffs? With 270k should I run a synthetic blend?

If you have any oil leaks fix them be for you run synthetic. They will leak faster with synthetic

I run a 15w40 Shell Rotella, Delo is also quite fine in the same viscosity. I am gonna try a 5w40 for this winter though I think. I run a synthetic atf in my zf5 trans, I run any 80w90 in my diffs, t case I haven't changed.
