sweet! Same thing I tossed into mine a few months back! Exept mine had 1,000 miles on it. lol. IDK if you'll be needing tips, but don't hesitate to ask. I just swapped mine in August. May I ask what you forked out for it?



BTW...I see what you did there in that engine pic. LOL.

Sucks to hear about the motor... but at least you got a replacement quickly!
Did you buy the whole truck? Looks like you can make some cash back on parts if you did.
Our trucks are going to be almost twins soon ... !
