JRKRACE replied to Loco-diablo's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have a 2015 and there is no way I can play a video. I've tried everything from ripping different formats to different usb and sd cards. It shouldn't be this hard....
JRKRACE replied to mgargiullo's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsI'm pretty sure that the ones under the radio are constant and the one in the console is switched.
JRKRACE replied to FreeAmerican's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDThe Bilsteins were nice and firm...almost too firm for the roads we have here. If I lived in the warmer climate regions, the Bils would have been nice. The winters here heave the roads up in my area, and they have no intention of fixing any roads anytime soon...The adjustability of the Ranchos works for me...
JRKRACE replied to WireBender's topic in 2017 / 2018 Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel (L5P) Technical DiscussionVoodoo science if you ask me........ It all depends on what the truck is and the region. If it's uber cold outside for a long time, then synthetic has it's place. If the truck is an LBZ or older, the extended runs on the oil would make sense for synthetic. I run my EGR blocked LBZ on Mobil 1 for 7500-8000 miles,or whenever the oil change indicator tells me (20%), which is usually the same period. 105K miles with zero issues. My LML on the other hand is totally stock, so I use Delvac 1300 for 5000 or so miles or until the oil life monitor gets to about 20%. I believe these new trucks need more frequent changes due to all the EGR these engines ingest. If using the oil monitor, the LBZ goes a lot longer than the LML.
JRKRACE replied to FreeAmerican's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDTough thing is that ride quality is purely subjective.....In my area, the roads are really rough to the point of making the truck pretty jittery. The highway oscillations that everyone is talking about is understandable...but if you cure the oscillations, chances are the truck becomes jittery over smaller bumps. Had Bilsteins (4600) on my 2002 and 2004 HD, Monroe Reflexes on my 2007 LBZ, and now Rancho 9000XL's, and Sulastic shackles on the same LBZ and each setup had it's good and bad traits.... Add tire pressure adjustments and it becomes even more subjective.... My 2015 has these Z71 shocks and I'm almost too tired to experiment.....
JRKRACE replied to JimCost2014's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI've had good luck with a JMS Pedalmax for my 2015 Duramax. Definitely a huge improvement....
JRKRACE replied to Jacob Sroda's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsI would pull the floor trim on the rear door as well to check to see if the rear floor is wet too....If it is, check to make sure your rear cab vent between the bed and cab isn't dislodged. Same wet floor led me to it...after the dealer checked it and did something else....
JRKRACE replied to matt123's topic in 2017 / 2018 Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel (L5P) Technical DiscussionNice....my 10 year old LBZ has the rear vents. Dodge and Ford has rear vents.....If GM wants to keep cutting, why not something else instead of a creature comfort that very visible? I'm not looking for every feature in the world. Just the good ones from a 10 year old truck....
JRKRACE replied to cford716's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDSorry bud.....just venting I guess.....
JRKRACE replied to cford716's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDI have been a GM fan forever, and they are really making it hard to stick with them. Between the uncomfortable seats, all the rattles, the stupid snowplow or sunroof dilemma, and the no rear ac vents, I really wonder why I stick with them. Going to look at the other choices in the next few weeks...
JRKRACE replied to matt123's topic in 2017 / 2018 Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel (L5P) Technical DiscussionOn the AC thing...have any of you been in the backseat on a hot day, with the front seat AC coolers on? Between the seat fans blowing hot air on you and no AC, it's crazy how hot it gets. It's ridiculous that GM would cut that out..I never realized it until I say back there. If I knew this, I doubt I would have purchased this truck. My kids are always in the back...It's a shame, this and the uncomfortable seats are the only negatives...Such little things that GM bungles up...
JRKRACE replied to Busdriver 47's topic in Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel (LML), Vortec 6.0L (L96/LC8), Drivetrain, & ExhuastInteresting...i have been waiting for a decent mount for the Insight as well....Shoot us pictures when you get it...
JRKRACE replied to Busdriver 47's topic in Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel (LML), Vortec 6.0L (L96/LC8), Drivetrain, & ExhuastIf you don't want to go with the OBD port, which I would do, pop a hole in the passenger side intake manifold...Do it while the engine is running to prevent shavings from being sent to the turbo....and wear glasses...
Although I might be late to the game, here are a few things I have found out to work well with any build.. 1. High ceiling in the garage. 12-13 ft works well for a lift. Also high track garage door rails from the get go.. 2. Separate electrical panels for each floor. Saves a ton of wiring and makes any add ons a little easier.. 3. Cat 6 to all the eaves on each corner of the house for future security cameras....terminated in one place.. 4. Cat 6 and 120v in higher spots of a central room, possibly hiden by kitchen cabinets or home entertainment centers for a WIFI routher/access point...same in the garage 5. Sub panel in the garage for toys... 6. 120 and 230 ran up to the corner of the garage high up for future heat... 7. Washer/dryer hookup in garage...Old washers and dryers never die and end up washing dirty stuff from garage... Just my .02 that's worked well for me and others...
