UPDATE

 

So help me out here... whenever you guys drive your truck today. Take two seconds before shutting it off and see if yours smokes like mine. Cause im not convinced...

Well I'll be a monkeys uncle, mine is warmed up, just got done pulling a 9000# load 20 miles, so any condensation would be dried up and at idle, it has blow-by to beat hell.

 

9967 miles, olm says 67% left. Oil level full.

 

Guess I won't be pulling the dipstick out while it's running, from now on. Out of site, out of mind.

 

Did a cai about 3k miles ago. Air tube to turbo was non-oily.
