My payload is around 2650 lbs. I have no idea what my drive-around weight is, I am mostly empty but with a Leer cab height cap that is probably 200 lbs or so.

I have a couple of thoughts on this. One is that the ball joint lasted 11 years and it's the rubber bushing that usually causes a wobble issue anyway. so I wouldn't leap to diss the stock solution. ...

240 is too high, I never see over 220 in any kind of normal driving, including towing, unless it spikes to 225 on a hill climb, and quickly comes back down. I think it's oil cooler time for you.

doesn't do a thing except keep the bed of the truck dry. Running with the bed empty and the tailgate up will get you about the best fuel mileage you are going to get, the empty bed creates a bubble...

For me this is a case of worry too much too soon. And not enough information. Hammer down, toy hauler is 17K unloaded, hot day, yes the oil is too hot but maybe it's just being run too hard? ...

Why do you think the injectors will pull fuel without the HFCM operating? They won't, they'll just fail. The only way to test a fuel supply issue is with a fuel pressure gauge and tester.

Turbo just needs to be cleaned, probably, as said it's not being driven enough. What is your driving pattern, anyway? If you do install a new turbo, I just put in a Rotomaster that is doing very...

I agree that you should be fine. In fact, given that it's a 2wd XLT Supercab Shortbox I bet the payload is over 3K, guessing that it has a gasser engine. You won't even be close to any limit. Be...
