    Firestone air compressor

    those are very small compressors , maybe replacing with a Viair with can be had for very low $$ and have a better compressor, even a slightly larger with reserve tank would be in your dreams ???? shop them as prices are all over the place if you decide to go that way.

    Thinking about a new(er) truck

    suggest you go ahead , as Hoss said waiting will not help 'cause those retirement funds $$ are not replaceable only lower your investment base .... BUTTT only you can make the decision one way or the other I'm retired and now wish I had made the choice to buy new [but mine was only a couple years old at the time I retired] ..now would like a new one and am sitting on that decision fence also . I retired at 55 years old so maybe I am a bit different than your situation. an automatic tranny is now the main reason I'd like along with zero to few miles v/s 280+ K also a 3/4 ton v/s a fat butt as I now tow a pull trailer v/s a fifth wheel [not sure I go down to a single but ?? far too many years of fat butt driving and having that stability . my days of towing heavy are for the most part over]

    Newbie with first Dodge/Cummins, 2nd gen

    sounds like very good follow up on PM services needed , one lil thought to pass on does this truck have steering wheel tilt ? if it does when you get a chance check it [joint] for play also as they do wear or get loose from many thing including using the wheel to pull oneself up onto the seat . also FYI [sorry if you have read or are aware] many of the second generation trucks have poor steering from the factory and are RUT hunters do to the geometry and much of what you have done tightens this issue but doesn't cure it unfortunately. a steering box stabilizer helps but again doesn't cure it all. it's a brace that goes attached between the frame rails and adds a bearing that picks up the bottom of the box to stop frame flexing/box flexing. some trucks had great factory steering and there seems to be no rhyme nor reason as to why some had good or bad steering. My 2001 from the factory had the worst steering I have ever felt of any car/truck I have owned over all my driving career .. I have spent many a $$ to improve this issue and it is many times better but it being a dually is still to some degree a RUT hunter although much improved on good roads.

    Silverwood trip

    already is down in Komieville , north and south and central affected , one right at the Oregon border that will probably spread into Oregon care with camp fires and outdoor tools needed , ma nature does a fair job with lightening strikes also with thunder storm activity in summers causes hellll for the fire fighters very hot temps in SoCal .. they are well into the 100's down there
