Speedco. About $230 with filters and lube job and oil test. And I get to watch the whole process.
Easy-Peasy.

Wish there was a speedco near me. Sounds like good pricing and great service from all I read.

Could be my first choice at $275 vs: $437. I could by a hamburger or me and the wife a couple hot dogs and brought left over for a Coke.

I'm cheap, I change my own oil. Filter at Cummins is about $40.00. I buy Delo from Costco. Just need a very large drain pan.

Filters- FilterBarn.com
Oil Change- Speedco or other local drive-thru for commercial trucks (have two in the greater Sacramento area, prices comparable to Speedco). If you don't have a Speedco near you, ask around for the local drive-thru that does full size trucks. If you ever travel in your motorhome, stop at a Speedco or similar, no appt'mt req'd and takes about 45 minutes. Mine was about $230 for new Fleetwood filters including two fuel filters, and oil analysis w/results emailed to me for easy data storage.

Given the handling and storage of that much oil, I gave up on doing my own LOF's.
Count your zercs and tell the tech there will be a quiz for him to name them; so far they have been able to name them all.

Mike, how many zerks are there on an Alpine? I plan to have mine serviced at a Speedco in the spring which will be a year from the dealerships service.

The zerk fittings on an Alpine. There is one on each Ball joint (4). On the King pins thier is one on the top and one on the bottom. One on the steering column shaft. The U-Joints each have two. You only need to lube one as they are cross drilled. One on the slip joint on the drive shaft. That is all on the 2005 WRV Peak Chassis (Alpine). There may be one on the Bell Crank on the Alpines with adjustable pedals. (Aftermarket install)

The older Alpines with through the floor Brake Pedal will have one one the Bell Crank.

That was NO fuel filters. Just LOF. And maybe just Oil and Filter. I just had back surgery so I'm not able to crawl around underneath and look at the lube fittings to see if they were done.

Went to Speedco near Hersey, PA today, in and out in under an hour. Complete LOF including oil and fuel, tested the coolant, remaining tread and air pressure on each tire for me under $230. I used the zerc quiz, they told me they found 11, I told them they missed2 (which they then found). For twice the price (as someone said) it was easy, peasy, quick, didn't get my hands messy, the wife even liked it.
