Thanks guys. Sorry I’m just now seeing these. The tail lights are the cheapest ones on eBay I could possibly find. The sockets are sketchy but they work haha

Well, today I hit 200,000 miles on my 03. Two things I love about this truck. One the day I bought it and two the day I put the LBZ in it. The LBZ motor has 200,000 miles and I've put 87,000 miles of that on. I plan to keep it two more years, sell it and then buy another Duramax.

I replaced my aux oil cooler lines and transmission cooler lines last night. Towed particularly heavy a while back, and the truck started leaving drops on the driveway. I had put on some generic braided -8 AN lines from Summit Racing when I built the motor. They did fine for years, but after that last tow, they were done for. The hot lines (both oil and trans) had started to melt, and the hose was expanding out through the braiding.

I took the opportunity to switch from -8 to -10 size, so new fittings in the sandwich adapter, trans, and coolers. The sandwich adapter & coolers were all sized for -10 to begin with, so I am not sure why I put -8 line on back in the day. Never caused any restriction that I could tell, but I can't think of a reason not to go -10 now. Had the local Parker shop make me some high-temp hydraulic lines. Not cheap, but man they are nice. Hopefully that will be the end of the leaking for a long time.

Today I ordered a new set of General Grabber AT/X tires for my daily/tow rig (285/75r16 on PYO) as well as one of Evan’s C3 Oiler setups for each truck.

Not the Dmax, but working on the Cruze. Started getting P20e4 and "bad DEF" messages, so have been replacing the three EGT sensors. EGT1 and 2 were easy. But EGT3 decided it didnt want to leave, instead breaking it's retaining nut off so I couldnt get it out. Spent today removing the front pipe and ended up cutting the bung off.
Got another weldable bung coming from Amazon, while also waiting for new gaskets and flange nuts, so the little car will be back on the road next weekend.

As a consolation, I get to drive BBT regularly again.

my fass lift pump decided that the system needed 30+ psi system pressure, even with the regulator backed all the way out, so that was cool. pulled that and sent it them to be fixed.

tossing around the idea of replacing the D max or keeping it

Worked on it for a while last night. SoCal heads, head gaskets, and swapping 625s for my 425 ARPs.
