Sounds like you have a busted heater core. Check the carpet on the passenger floorboard by pulling up the rocker trim. You can stick your hand between the floor pan and the jute/sound deadening. If...

RE: somethings wrong

Try replacing the fuel filter. Cheap and easy to do. If that doesn't fix it, and there is no pressure from the valve, it might be the pump. You could also have a bad pressure regulator if...

RE: What happened?

I still think the Crew Cab Z-71 models are pretty sweet. I'd love to see someone do a straight axle swap with 37's on it.

RE: Smoke Exhaust
