    Finally the truck that i ordered 6 months ago is here . I was thinking about selling it but changed my mind pretty quickly when i saw it . Now i am just looking for advice from people who are getting new trucks. what sensors or parts are failing on these new trucks that i should order so i dont get stuck in a backlog if the part or sensor fails . Some photos of the truck are attached.
    Thank you

    Turbo speed sensor was the only one I replaced on my 2021 with a Cummins.

    Congrats! Very nice truck.

    Nothing at all as far as what you need to stock up on. That’s the beauty of a new ride.

    Digital dash is not bad but its going to take some time getting used to it . Alot of options for whole truck diagnostics . If you are an old timer you will hate it and never drive one with the digital dash. if you can somewhat install a windows on a pc you will love it .i ll post one tomorrow.

    Hey brother thank you . I was reading one of your posts on the new truck batteries. Did they crap out on you right away?

    Thank you . Order was placed on 6/25/21 . Original build date was 09/10/21. It was pushed two times after that Truck was built on 12/10/21. It takes a day to build a 389 . Then it was delivered on 01/14/22 after getting the general manager involved. So almost 6 months but it was worth it
