so i went and filled the truck up this morning and while it was pumping i figured i'd check the oil since i hadn't in a couple weeks. it looked like it was on the bootm of the dipstick. so figured would go buy a quart and add it. well it turns out it was just clean and i couldnt see it and i over filled by a little. its not ridiculously ovefilled. its just over the max line like an 1/8". its got 65% on the olm so i'd hate to change the oil it but if i should i will. just cuious if im a dipshit or just worrying about nothing

1/8" is not a biggie. I wouldn't worry about it. You could also just barely crack the drain plug and let a tiny bit dribble out. No need to let it all drain out.

I'll also change your thread title to be more descriptive. We get a lot of "oops" here and details will get you more views.
