yeah i put some lucas in it, and i drive it everyday, i actually put about 150 miles on it today and it ran great, does sound like a a diesel sitting at stop light though, but i do have towing on my insurance so screw it, when it blows then ill have the excuse to get back into a 4x4.
thanks guys

pull the pan and roll a new set of bearings in it before the damage gets to the crank (if it hasnt already)

if it has gotten to the crank, then pull the engine, pull the crank, have it turned undersize, and then install the oversized bearings to match...would be a big waste to kill the engine for approx $200...hell, fix it then sell it, and buy a 4x4

a buddy told me the same thing about turning the crank, so i guess the motor is coming out of the truck tomorrow, and we will see what it needs, im thinking if im pulling the motor then im spending the extra dollars and doing a full rebuild all that labor to pull the motor i might as well make it worth my time,

cam bearings dont have as tight of a tolerance, and rarely cause oil pressure problems...besides, its easy to change them in frame with just pulling the grill and radiator
