Most insurance companies will make you buy a commercial policy for a 1 ton rated truck, or any truck used for business purposes.

Interestingly, I have commercial insurance on my 'Burb. Costs me about $70 more per year than the quote I got from the company that insures my wife's car.

BTW your 1994 looks great :clap:

Thanks for the replies, guys!

I guess now would be a good time to ask.

With DS4 pumped trucks, is it considered normal
that the throttle response isn't as crisp as a mechanical injected truck?:confuzeld

My good truck is 4911 pumped, and it's a sharp, almost instant "Rrraap" when I blip the throttle.
Very responsive.

This truck is just kinda lazy.
It's like the data rate to/from the ECM is faster than the pump can actually respond.
A blip is more like a "....ummph". More like a weak delayed reaction.

Also, it's impossible to set and hold any RPM under about 2500 RPM with the truck in park.
If I try to creep the RPM up to, say 1200-1500 RPM, it just climbs right on past.

I swapped out 3 known good APPS, and still can't hold a specific RPM.
Accelerates fine in gear.

My truck acts the same way so either both our IP's are shot or that's just the way it is.
Stupid government!!!!

If you can't maintain RPM then yea the IP is usually bad but throttle response is all in the tune and can be remedied. I have a Banks chip for sale in the parts forum that'll solve that problem for ya!

X2!

We have the 1994 factory manual in the 6.5 FAQ's.

I highly recommend you do this mod to the 1994: OPS Relay Mod


I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT AS WELL! ONCE I DID THAT, I DIDN'T HAVE AN ISSUE FOR THE REST OF THE REMAINING 90K MILES I OWNED ONE.
