I changed the filter while the oil was draining. I just took the truck for a drive and now the oil on the dipstick is much cleaner, so I guess everything is fine. It still seems weird to me that it...

Yeah but doesn't it stay in the hpo reservoir? Meaning it wouldn't show up on the dipstick

how does this make sense

I just changed the oil on my truck and before even firing it up, went to check the level and the new oil is already black! Usually when I've changed it in the past the fresh oil is so clean you can'...

Interesting post.

I will say that I've noticed people really like to drive their Ford trucks. Look at Craigslist or Ebay or whatever and see how many 07's or 08's you can find with...

You definitely don't "need" to buy all those parts, not to mention that the list is repetitive (it lists 6 shocks).

To go from a 4" to 2" block you should just need the blocks themselves, new...

It's way too risky these days to modify a brand new vehicle, unless you really have a lot of money and don't mind spending it. There is too much technology out there for you to get busted, and its...

Yeah I can definitely tell that middle picture looks wrong. I actually have 4" flat blocks now with no issues, I just didn't know if I needed an angled block to go any bigger.

flat or angled blocks

I can't seem to find a definite answer on whether I need flat or angled rear blocks. Some people say to use a flat block and shim down the carrier bearing, others say an angled block makes it so you...

So is the correct place in between the radiator and intercooler? I have mine behind the grille and it does absolutely nothing. Temps are still 182-184

He probably means a winter front. I made myself one out of cardboard, you stick it behind the grille and it blocks off airflow to the radiator. I have yet to try it out

I think the problem is that these engines are made to stay cool under very heavy loads, so when you are just driving around unloaded in the winter the cooling system is "too good" and won't let it...

Yep mine is the same way. 190-194 in summer, won't go past 186 in the winter. Usually its 182, and it doesn't even get that cold here (low 40's most of the time). Very annoying.
