826,591 - Air filter replaced

829,789 - oil changed, front brake pads changed to Duralast Gold Premium semi metalic NASCAR pads. Front tires changed to 265/75/16s 6/32nds. Have to keep over 4/32nds up front to be legal, commercial vehicle. Allowed to run down to 2/32nds rear.

832,875 - had transmission fluid changed, changed spin on when got home.


Also, let truck sit outside this week, driving dually.....was complete last time I checked. About 2 weeks earlier.

Damn Red squirrels.
GM wanted $162 from new hood insulation. Dad had his 2013 hit also. Nowhere near as bad. The 2013 new hood insulation is $65. Just reused his old one.

Put a good spraying of Squirrel Stop, mostly peppermint oil, on a engine bays.

835379 - Changed the rear u joint on front drive shaft. Good thing I had access to a press, though probably should of put more heat on first. Old u joint popped pretty hard.

Changed driver side rear tire with one with slightly more tread. Have different set up front, trying to get the most life out of the tires.

Did you have Divine Auto do the detail work? They do a heck of a nice job.

No, this was done in Indiana by my dispatcher who does body work on the side. I have done some Electrical work for him in the past.


My dad had an estimate on repairing a truck from Divine and the guy pulled up the plastic cover that goes on top radiator between grill and top rad support without removing all the little plastic push in tabs, breaking the cover.

We dont go to them for work.

You've got to be kidding me. Mike let something like that happen? Damn.

Truck looks great. Hard to believe it has that many miles on it.
