    I forget the GMC TopKick's Year but this was my first Water tender I set up for wildfires. Sold it to this guy. It had a Cat 3208 V-8 Diesel with plenty of power to haul 1200 gals of water. First day on a Wildfire for him and he drives it off the road and almost tips it over! I had to chain up to him and pull him back on to the road with my Class 8 Freightliner 2800 gal Tender. I built it with the money selling this one to him. He left the fire and lost $78,000.00 fire pay doing so. It scared him when it almost tipped over. He still has the Water Tender but uses it to protect his home and neibors places. Click image for larger version.†

ID:	672910I knew the truck could twist but man it sure twisted up good and still drove the fire and many years still on the road. There one tough built truck! I was turned around and ahead of him with my Freightliner and he drives off the road in front of me. You should have seen his eyes! He got out and said you drive it out not me! I went around and dumped his tank load of water! I had a fellow fire fighter get in when I pulled him out. He was never meant to be under pressure or on a road like this on a wildfire! Course my Semi Truck like wider roads too!

    Thanks for that bit of info. I had my intake manifold off a few months ago changing knock sensors, and wish i had known about that screen then. Oh well, both knock sensors were bad upon install, so when i go to do it again, i'll replace that screen too.
    Found a good thread with some good info about changing it and what not....
    ATTENTION anyone with oil pressure issues - 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500 - GM-Trucks.com


    Side note, last time i changed my oil, i used 10w30, why, i don't know honestly (maybe that's what i had on hand). I changed my oil last weekend with 5w30, like is spec'd from GM, and my oil pressure went up damn near back to normal ranges, and i have not seen the low oil pressure light since.

    I am glad the days are starting to get longer,,,

    It seems like EVERY time I come home after dark, one of the neighbors will see all the extra lights on my truck,,
    then the next day, they will call and ask why an ambulance had to come to the house!!



    Hopefully,, the neighbors will get used to seeing all the lights,,,

    We took the truck on our trip south to Atlanta then over to Charleston SC and then back home. I was very happy with the gas mileage.



    I didnít take a pic of the best tank which was from Atlanta to Charleston on I-20 and 26. The mileage was 22.4.

    That's pretty damn good. which motor you got? Ever check actual gallons used at the pump vs what the display shows?

    Itís the 5.3 with 8 speed tranny (factory max tow package). On this truck I havenít compared yet, and may never. I donít get worked up about MPGís and the cost of gas. I drive the vehicle I want and need to get where I need to go, so itíll cost me what it costs me. Thatís the way I see it, others may disagree.

    It did me good though showing that screen to my dad when we were at their place in Charleston. He didnít think any GM truck could beat his 2012 F150 3.5 Ecoboost.

    Right on. All GM trucks beat his 2012 F-150. Everybody knows that, especially the Ford guys
