when i first got mine i did HBS level lift and should have done the ranch quick lifts.. I've only heard great things about the ranchos

I ran them on my '07 and loved them, but I've got Boss rear shocks (rancho didn't have anything at the time) and want the suspension to match. Just not sure if there's enough difference between Rancho and Boss, plus match desire, to justify an extra $500...

Default Well you were right to change it

That pile of shavings in the head was the kicker . Filings must be everywhere . I wonder what that shows, no oil on that part of the head ? Are the guides in pieces and oil pickup jammed ? Makes me want to add oil pressure gauge .
I still lean towards metal tensioners . Even tho you can only get about a half inch of compensation for this long chain .
My guides were in many pieces but only one roller thrown to side and damaged . I don't think much of the lash adjusters ,I replaced them all . They seem too small and prone to failure .These small passages in oil flow don't seem to take much to clog .
Why no modified stronger guides have been designed is a mystery to me .

Default Heads look dry to me

I see lots of dirt that fell inside as covers taken off , But it looks like major damage on no 1 and number 5 exhaust rollers-- filings piled up . Cam journal passage clogged ??
I see this truck an 08 at 160k heavily overloaded taking out transmission which has inherited weaknesses . I wonder how much of the time the oil level ran low . It can't help that is was lifted and pulling loads in hill country . Still I would like to root out the cause of failure of engine and maybe the fix . Would an engine flush have helped or did the blown out tensioners doom it .
That's a sweet looking long block ,what improvements are on it from power train . Phasors/tensioners / head design how much oem . Do you plan on reusing intake/intake runner control / water pump /knock sensors/ crank sensors/ cam sensors ??

youre right, there is alot of dirt from popping the covers off BUT also alot of metal shavings... I'll know more when I go pick it up. The mechanics told me there are metal shavings everywhere.
