Welcome. Post some pictures, let's see that ride.
I sold my 2010 truck with the 5.3L. I drove over 100,000 miles in it, and never got better than 16 on the highway, no matter what I did. Couldn't afford to keep driving it.
I usually run Yukon gears. For drag racing, street, they have stood up fine to a bunch of abuse. Never had a problem.

Well, here is what I would say.
Do you like the truck? Is it fun for you? Or is this a strictly economical question.
Cheapest option is to sell it, buy something else, that you will likely have...
What truck do you have?
Is it level when you drain it? Make sure it is, and let it drain for a while. You might also taking a small screwdriver and pushing in the drain hole to make sure...

If it is under your thermostat housing, I would start with pulling the thermostat, replacing with new one and re-gasket that. Also, check your thermostat housing for corrosion, and your radiator...

Where do you have antifreeze on the intake? Can you take a picture? If it is all original, it is unlikely to get an antifreeze leak there,, unless things are so corroded that metal/aluminum has...
Thanks Brian. Had to put the step on so I could get in it. Being an old fat guy, it was hard for me to get in it.
I do think I need bigger tires now, looking at the pictures. hmmm.
Ok, flares are on. Just barely any rub now on the front tires with extreme twist in our pit, so we should be in good shape now. Also took the top off. Now for some fun driving. Problem is, my son...
I use MSD products when possible, and have heard some good from Mallory. I never use Accel stuff.
If your wires are old, you will get the best improvement for the dollar with those. If your coil...
Must be a reason it didn't have a lighter in it.
If you can, unplug the wiring on the back side of the lighter base. Sounds like you have too much of a draw from that base. Then try to put the...
That is a very cool truck.
And I agree with above, I would leave it generally, as it is. Fix it up to make it reliable and useful.
The wiring gets old and brittle from heat, and mice chewing...
I have several good places to stick on.
Ditto from me. Wih you had some bolt one for my 2000 k2500.

Ok, I have not had an issue with one, so I can't answer that.
I would say, it should be a good thing that the oil is in coolant, and not other way around.

We haul our Buicks, and other stuff on our steel floor trailer.
72 GS convertible
70 Skylark race car
This one was headed to the paint shop.

Engine oil pressure will run 20psi up to 60 or more psi, while the coolant would only be 12-14psi, I think.
What color is the "oil" in the radiator? Does it have red tint? Is it transmission...
Building it for a fun, yet capable driver. Flares can be replaced if we break them, and, ever heard the term "chicks dig scars". This truck is full of scars, and my wife, even after 30 years of...
We finally got a little rain, first time in a year, so we had to go play in the yard. I am building this truck, so this was first time to go through the pit and stuff I have built at my place, and...
Serious. It has a long distance spray, and when sprayed in the face of an intruder, they will be stopped until they go to hospital (in cuffs). My wife has this by her bedside, and at...
Since you did get a tick, then that is evidence that you have reduced pressure.
Now, why do you have reduced pressure?
Could be the oil pump, or screen gunked up.
Could be worn bearings
It doesn't shake when you are in neutral or park? You can rev the engine in park and no shake? If so, that rules out your engine.
You had a u joint fail? which one? And did you replace all of...
Is there any reason for your engine to be worn out? Lots of miles? Hard driving? abuse?
Low oil pressure typically comes from worn out main and rod bearings in the engine, and as the tolerances...

Double check to make sure the fuel pump arm is under the cam lobe when to put it in. it is possible to put it on the top, then it will not work at all.
Then, take the fuel line off at the carb,...
Stock hubs were probably the auto locking hubs, and we just replaced ours on our 89 Blazer because they wouldn't engage or disengage easily.
How are you testing the 4wd? How did you determine it...
