    I hear ya man. It really is a blast to drive. Seemed the newer ones were fairing better but maybe not. Out of curiosity did it give you any indicators prior to taking a crap or was it wam bam? Was that what prompted you to join the forum?

    I joined looking for info on adding ac seats to my truck. It didn't not give me any warning signs. Dealer told me today it was piston and rod failure. New motor on order

    That's a bummer man. Hope it gets fixed quick. I think they're getting good at replacing engines in these things.

    Wow! The local dealer here couldn't get your oil changed that quickly!! OK, they aren't quite that bad, but close

    Welcome. I know how you feel, spun bearings at 60k. 2 1/2 months to get it back. First engine arrived in 3 weeks, but was called back? So maybe yours will be faster. Be sure they change the oil cooler.
