FROM THE DRIVER SEAT
Changing the fluids in your truck is easy and doesn't take much time at all. If you own a '99 or newer GM V-8, then you know just how well engineered the engine bay is and just how easy it is to work on. Swapping the plugs and wires couldn't have been simpler. Keeping your truck on the road longer is as easy as spending some time under the hood with some tried and true upgrades that you can convince your wife is just routine maintenance.
