Overkill? Maybe... Been doing this since around 100k but not all aligned to the 50k interval (250k, 300k, 350k etc) on the odometer until 250k. I allows me to not have to think about when a service is due and have peace of mind that the truck needs nothing until that next interval of either 10k (oil & fuel) 25k (3 um filter) or 50k (all of it)

Damn , I used to think I maintained my truck pretty good, guess not ! Lol !
Right now here’s my list
Front diff RP 75-140 275k “freespin kit so doesn’t really get used in my mind “
Rear diff RP 75-140 175k mag-hytec cover
Trans RP max atf 191k mag-hytec DD pan
Engine oil delo 15-40 mopar filter every 10k
My fuel filters get changed on a pressure basis , idle is 12-13 psi once it drops to around 7 psi I start to see mpg suffer so that’s where I change at . Last change was around 60k

Nice! my 3 um filter does not make it much past 25k, cant image trying to run both out to 60k
I used to run the ff 5320 but this last time I went to the Donaldson dbf 5814 , my ws is the fs1212 . I change it first and see what the pressure does , usually it’s 2-1 change

Steve , what RP oil you using ? I’m about to switch and they got the Duralec super and ultra , it shows the ultra has more zinc etc for no emission trucks . Probably going that route than I’ll be all RP in my ride .

I understand the duralec but there’s a ultra and a super . The ultra looks to be for pre emissions and the super for the emissions trucks . Just figured I’d ask since you research everything, lol
