    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Bro It should be between 4-5 qts, I don't know for sure. I did a quick search here and on google and couldn't find anything. Some guys on one forum said they had to put in 5.5 qts for their 4 cylinder.
    I would recommend buying 5 qts, and put 4 qts in and check the level on the dipstick. If the level is between the two lines you will be fine. But after that I would recommend running the truck to normal running temp., and then turn off the motor for 4-5min and let the oil drain back into the pan. Then check the level again, and add if needed to the top level. Also make sure your truck is parked on level ground, like a garage.
    Hopefully someone can chime in and give the correct amount, but if not that will do just fine, or try doing a more detailed search on google.
