    Try cycling the key from OFF to RUN a few times - it will pressurize the system. If it starts and stays running, you have a pressure regulator issue or a plugged filter. If it stalls out after a few minutes, the pump is dying. Drove my last 2nd gen with a failing pump and regulator for 6 months - had to cycle the key about 10 times every time I started it (regulator). If it sat at idle, it was fine but if I floored it, it'd die (pump).

    Also, running as low as you are on fuel, that might be part of you problem - your gauge may be off to the point you don't actually have enough fuel.

    I'll check it out. I'm curious to see how it'll turn out.

    1500 or 2500? Wheels make it hard to tell, but I've never seen a 318 in a 2500.

    Nice. This is mine. 1500 4x4 with the 360 and a 3 inch lift on 33s. Really want to repaint it a green like that or a nice orange.
