x2 on the Stanadyne, however bio has been found to provide superior lubricity. As for trans fluid...a lot of experienced diesel mechanics don't recommend it due to it's detergent properties which might adversely effect your fuel injection system which ain't cheap....Diesel's will burn a lot of thing like bio, veggie oil, used motor oil, trans fluid, kerosene. i hate filling up with #2. I'm used to the cleaner, non toxic smell of bio. Btw, real nice truck you got there. Diesel's are so much cooler than gassers. :thatrocks:

Some nice trucks there! I've never been more stoked to get back into a truck! Looking forward to many many good times with this thing. Snowy passes, bike trips, desert trips and river trips are all on the agenda. Anyone recommend a nice topper?

Obviously not my truck but it's the only pic i could find at the moment. I got the 08 TRD Sport 4door w/the long bed in black. Look out scrubfest!

^^ You guys should check out getting a 3 inch lift from toytec:

http://www.toyteclifts.com/0507tacocart.html#0507tacoliftkits

I plan on getting one on my 04 when I can afford it. Just enough to take on some of the rougher roads without worrying as much, but not too much to kill power/ gas mileage.

What I think would be the real issue with trans fluid, in this application, is the solvent qualities of it. 6.0 Powerstrokes are worse for it, but the7.3 would suffer, too. The injector pintle clearances are very tight on these, and ANYTHING that adds to the possibility of galling in a no-no. Price out a new set of injectors for one of these (think big $$) 'cause I wouldn't use rebuilds. Then tell me how cheap a good fuel additive is! Bio is hands down the winner for lubricity, low emisions, and that good old french fry smell.

After five years of driving a Japanese family sedan I bought a "new" truck: 1975 International Scout II. I'd post a pic but it doesn't look like much at the moment. Unless you're turned on by rust and peeling clearcoat. Runs pretty well. Hey, does anybody know if I have to do anything to the carburator because of the altitude? It went from sea level to about 8000ft.

I had friend in high school with probably a 70's something Scout. Thing was sick! We drove the shit out of it one summer. It even had a loud ass PA system. Wrong thing for a bunch of high school kids to have.

I'm not super savvy, BastardChild, but it seems like I've heard of a few people adjusting their carbs in CO. for the altitude. Bein your way up thar in Gunny methinks it wouldn't hurt. But what do i know, I've been a front-range-Midsize-SUV-drivin-chachi for too long.

HFT-Yeah, I'm definitely considering the lift. You very knowledgeable when it comes to those? I might have some questions later on for ya. I've got a bud who's the manager at the local toyota dealer and he told me he would have their guy trick it up for me for a huge bargain. The Pederson dealership owner guy has a couple lifted 07's in the 2.5-3inch range. They look sick. I think thats the perfect size for Colorado's rougher roads. Like you said, just enough.
