    Just got me one of these. My first truck. It has been sitting for a while. I'm going to change the oil right away. The main thing I'm worried about is the gas. Should I just go and buy some StaBil and then put in some new gas? I REALLY dont want to drain the whole gas tank...

    yeah ... some stabil, seafoam, or equivalent ... but it will still be iffy ... run the tank dry and then change out all the fuel filters ... also look into a complete tuneup ... disty cap, rotor button, wires, plugs, air and fuel filters, etc ....

    also wouldnt be a bad idea to run a can of seafoam through it to clean out everything ... pull a vaccume line and clean out the head with it
