Glad to see you finally got your third gen. I finally found me another one too. I really liked your other truck but I could not bring myself to buy a vehicle with that many miles on it and yours was not the only one I was looking at...

I buy all my filters from genosgarage.com. They have great prices on them...

rotella oil is fine in the truck, as far as fuel filters, try to find one this is 5 microns or less, baldwin oil filters work best or have for me, and as far as damage, the cp3 can handle alot, they wont just kill over like a vp will, so unless some major trash passed through, your not going to have a problem.... anything else you need help with just let me know...
