    Ah, good to see. For a while about 2009 those seemed to be drying up. Guess the military surplused more out.

    Side note: These engines use standard #5 oil filters, like many other American trucks. This leads to some interesting catalog cross-referencing. :thinking:

    Because your truck has a 6.2.

    MX-6 shocks arrived today. Shiny. Playing around with them I'm already happier with the extra 3" of safety margin. It looks like the front 5125s will be just peachy.

    I was about to ask what other options got it, the 89 burb I bought for the 350 had it. It also had quad shocks
