    What's up TW! though i would introduce myself. Name is Wayne and purchased a 05 silver dc. I won't be able to actually drive it until i head back stateside soon. So far, the po, installed a 3" tuff country lift, locker mod, urd cold intake, short shifter and MAF sensor cal, and coverted the a/c pump to work as an air pump. Future plans before i get back, will be convert back to working a/c, install the new kenwood gps, polish the wheels and install new tires. After that, rock sliders and aftermarket bumber and winch. the military is moving me to North Dakota, so i need to prep for the cold @ss winters. Thanks for reading

    Nice truck.

    I spent 2.5 years in Okinawa, and 1 year in Minot right before that. You really can't get more opposite. Good luck!

    FYI- You will NEED a block heater...

    Thanks for the reminder. I've done a little bit of research, but have not decided on which style. Freeze plug placement or one that goes into the lower rad hose.

    Ok, now i did the research. looks like i'll order a oem heater.
