    lol you posted that in your profile again lol

    How do you change the filter with out loosing all the oil that is in it??
    and 12k miles is ok for the oil???
  3. I change the filter and add a quart of RP after 4000 miles & 8000 miles. Then at 12000 miles I change oil and filter and start all over. I'm on my second 12000 miles now and everything is going well.

  7. Just kicked back and watched football, most of the day. Went out for some Mexican food and filled up the truck @ $1.82/gal. in San Marcos, Tx. Heading for Houston for a few days in the motor home, later this week. Got to take advantage of the lower gas prices.

  10. Weekend is just about gone, but I "vegitated" today. I have an appointment tomorrow to set up surgery to have my 2nd knee replacement. Had the first one done in 2000 and the wanted to do both then. I have lasted another 8 years, but can't put it off much longer.

Been awhile, so I'll update my progress.

by retired2001 on 03-22-2011 at 02:05 PM
I bought my truck to pull behind my motor home and as a daily driver. I now have the base plates (for towing); brake buddy wiring; tow lights wired; front windows tinted; i-pod hooked up to "XM1" via a "gateway". Now all I have to do is get myself in shape to drive to Oregon by May.

New Truck!

by retired2001 on 01-06-2010 at 02:03 PM
Well, my wife let me go to the car dealer by myself and I drove home a new Colorado! It is a 2010 Z/71 Crew Cab 4X4 V8 and it is Black on Black! It had 3 miles on the "clock" and is definitely brand NEW! It also has the G80 w/4:10 gears. I will probably wish it had 3:73s, but it sure has plenty of "get up and go"! I'll get some pic's when the weather clears up a little. Meanwhile I'll enjoy that "new truck" feel!

Oil Change, again!

by retired2001 on 01-11-2009 at 07:21 PM
Well, I went by O'Rilleys and bought a new Fram oil filter and a quart of Royal Purple. I was supposed to change the filter after 4000 miles, but it got streached to 5500. My son came by and pulled the oil filter and put on the new one, added a quart of RP and hauled off the old stuff. Looks like I need to buy one more quart, to top it off. Good for another 4000 miles!!!

Another oil change plus "State Inspecton"

by retired2001 on 10-17-2008 at 07:15 PM
Well I had to have the truck inspected and I had the oil had the oil changed at the same time. I was going to go back to Mobil 1, but there was only $7 difference to stay will Royal Purple. I'm good til the next oil change and it only cost me $94.45! Oh well, oil is cheaper than PARTS!

Another Oil Change out of the way

by retired2001 on 08-01-2008 at 02:08 PM
I went to get my oil changed this morning and it only cost $32.99. This time they only changed the filter, lubed, svc'd and "topped off" the oil (1.5 qt.) of Royal Purple. You pay for the original oil change where they change out all of the oil and filter and svc. After that every 4000 miles you change filters and "top off" the oil. I've gone through 8000 miles now and have not seen any real improvement over the Mobile 1 I was running. I will probably go back to Mobile 1
