    ok guys....
    Just went to the dealership to have the Throttle Positioning Sensor I bought installed since i stripped the screws... but they said it was the wrong part and the only way to get a legit TPS is to order an entire new throttle body for $1175 so right then and there I called bullshit and left.

    My engine is still hesitating on occasion but not as much as before. My gas mileage has significantly decreased though. I'm getting 12.5 MPG and the engine just feels heavy. I've been keeping a pretty light foot so I feel like there's something else causing the low MPG's. I am running 285/75/16 tires but I have had a 17 MPG fill up with them on before.

    Any suggestions or recommendations for a shop to get the truck looked at?

    If not who wants to buy my truck?? 16k OBO
