well the old saying if it aint broke don't fix it comes to mind, I can say that when we do have problems most of us can find help here. "thats why were here" :tongue: I would keep a set of tools tucked away some where metric and standard, the fuel system is metric mostly just about everything else is SAE. a set of back up glowplugs always "if you can change your plug connectors to the larger 1/4" size then you can use any parts store plugs for the 6.2 check out these guys for updating your plugs and stuff http://www.ssdieselsupply.com/category_5_Glow_Plugs__Controllers.html It would also help to get the military manuals and skim through the trouble shooting sections and print a copy to put in the glove box hope this helps you, just remember 9/10ths prepare 1/10th repair :burger:

its a good idea to replace the inectors and rebuild the injector pump every 100,000 miles replace the fuel filter every 10,000 and keep a back-up lift pump and pumprod the lift pump is an easy find about $30 to 50 I think and I had to get the pump-rod from the gm parts store about $22 dollars??. I would check the lift pump fitting that screws into the lift pump, mine was seized tight when I tried to change it out and had to cut it and get a new piece of fuel hardline and splice it together with rubber fuel hose "this hardline goes from the lift pump up the front of the engine through the valley under the intake manifold and pops out by the fuel filter, its a good idea to go through and check all the fuel hose and line fittings and make sure there are no leaks replace anything that looks bad. Keep a bottle of cetane boost or fuel system cleaner and put some in with every fuel up, this will help clean out injectors, keep the injector pump lubricated and net a little fuel milage [^] for the brakes just check the master cylinder and power steering pump fluid and the hose connections from the power pump to the brake master cylinder, if you hear brake pads screeching or feel a woble when you step on em then take a closer look
