How to tell when you need new batteries...

I just put new batteries in my 2005, and a new alternator that I probably didn't really need. My first set of batteries lasted a long time, from new to 2012 so 7 years. They were the stock...

There is a chance it's the oil cooler but presuming you've been monitoring that it's about 99% sure you have stuck turbo vanes. I had exactly the same symptom, pulled turbo, it was heavily rusted so...

I got a brand new Rotomaster turbo, direct replacement, for around $1000 all in, probably includes shipping in the US. I didn't want another Garrett, nor did I want a performance upgrade turbo. So...

My truck already has one. If I am under a load and the boost goes to 35 psi and I get an instant wrench light with de-power, I know I have stuck turbo vanes... :)
