Default 80,000 Mile Update

Just crossed 80,000 miles on the LBZ last week.

For those who don't know.

The motor is stock, no intake, just MBRP exhaust. FASS with filters, no tune. Merchant Automotive built tanny, and convertor. Cognito supports on the steering, and PPE tie rod braces.

The problems -

-Power steering lines leak

-Sunroof arms have cracks in them (bad enough to make me nervous about using it)

---------------------------------------

I change oil, fuel filter and tranny filter every 10K. Air filter every 30K.

My stock set of tires lasted to 42K miles. The Cooper STT's still have plenty of life left with 38K miles on them, and I am confident they will outlast my stock tires (which were bald when I had them changed).

I love this truck!

Man Law-77. A man should be able to determine a diesel engine by sound alone.
