What did you wind up paying for the battery?
My new battery was 169. I got the AGM the one I wanted was cheaper but was out of stock.
I don't think I've seen you post that thing on FB yet. Are you ashamed of it!? LOL
I tried to like the Tacoma, I really did, but I decided it wasn’t going to work for me. Back in the Ram club now. I guess the good thing is, with the resale value on the Toyota, it didn’t cost me much to find out.
21 Ram 2500 Bighorn with the Cummins.
Good looking truck Wayne. Give us some more pics.
Thanks Jeff! Will do!
It's the smallest 4 wheeled street legal engine I've ever owned..... Yes! J/k

I owe a couple of more payments on this dinosaur of mine. I'll probably rock it for another year before I get another one. That is if it holds up for another year. The damn thing is 12 years old.
I broke down and ordered both left and right valve covers for it. I apparently didn't clean the left side good enough. I also read that just replacing or cleaning the left side didn't prove any results for the oil consumption on some of the engines. I guess we'll find out. I just need a little warmer weather. It's due for an oil change, so hopefully I can get this done within the next couple of weeks.
The valve covers came today and since I was off work and it was a beautiful day I went ahead and swapped them out. The left side is easy enough to do, I think I was done with that side in about 45 minutes. The right side on the other hand took me damn near 2 hours to do. There's a lot more shit in the way on that side, and of course I stopped for a smoke. After I got it all back together, I started it up and low and behold, no smoke came out the tail pipe. I let it run for a bit and checked for leaks. It seems all is good. I wanted to change the oil in it, but that's going to have to wait til this weekend. I think GM really screwed the pooch with this design. They should have left well enough alone and kept the pcv valve. A $6 part cost me over $130.
