Welcome to FTE, Best 6.0 resource on the web!! Beautiful looking truck.
I'm going to echo everyone else, Get gauges! There are warning signs you'll never see without them. No amount of maintenance in the world will ward off some of the issues with these engines. My FICM and oil cooler were on the way out, and I would have never known, had it not been for my Scangauge.
But, you do have other options for gauges, so don't feel you need to rush out and buy the scangauge. You can go the cheaper route and get a bluetooth adapter and use an app on your phone (iphone or android) or even some tablets, to get some monitoring going right now. I'm on my way out the door right now, so I can't provide links for your other options, but a quick search or some help from the other members on what THEY use will steer you in the right direction. There's no shortage of help here.
