Im not to happy with the last “Clown” that tested my truck he had to ask me what engine i had??? not only that but he ripped me off doing the test that didn’t need to be done! He did not inform me as you did with the odd and even model year trucks! You need to raise your prices man! you know your stuff and your worth every penny! you actually SAVED me money by letting me know i don’t need one next year!
