Oil Analysis Results

This was two oil changes ago. I have another sample that I ran for 10k that I need to send out. Anything I should be paying closer attention to? I am really good about cleaning my air filter. About every 2-3k...

What type of air filter do you have? And how are you cleaning it?
Every 2-3k miles is absolutely overkill and probably harming the filter media. Unless you operate the truck in a constant dust storm of course.

I run an Airaid set-up. It's a washable oiled filter. There is so much construction going on here in the DFW area, that makes it super dusty, and it gets dirty, quick! I have two of them that I alternate back and forth, so one is ready when I pull the dirty one off.

Yeah, you are totally over cleaning them then. I would ditch them for a non-oiled filter and plan on cleaning every 15k or so. I run my truck down dirt roads constantly in the summer time and still get 15k out of a 6637.
