    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Since this is my first truck and originally a virgin, I would like to use a very good fuel injection cleaner,perhaps every other oil change. What's the groups thoughts on brand name cleaners.
    Most of the articles I read just say a "good" cleaner, I have to wonder about the $2.57 cleaners at places like walmart. Any thoughts.

    Buy good "name brand" gas and you don't need it.

    Thanks for the replys, I have a friend who sells it and he said it was quality stuff. 98% of the time I use Gulf or Mobil gas.

    ^That's good. I'm sure there's no harm in using it regularly. I use it on occasion, and I can't think of the brand right now but I buy it at Advance, probably every 15K miles if I remember.

    When I had my old Honda Civic, the dealer put Chevron "with Techroline", in it.

    I use and have used seafoam for years.. wife cars, my vech, harley, dirt bikes ect. Read instructions if you are useing for other than your fuel, ie oil, trans ect. will clean good as new.
