Anyone have any experience with these bulbs? http://www.putco.com/products.cfm?action=ProductView&Product=605C7E19-E1DB-1D81-E03D-E8BC3DE26C29&Category=265206B2-AA7D-3526-3FBE-9867DB134C5F&bulbtypeid=55C7310C-22D5-42EA-A309-3B5C1F53E52B Thinking about upgrading. Can't stand the stock lights on these HD's
fjtort2 replied to Summit15101's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDBoth the 6.2 and 6.0 are great engines. I went with the 6.0 for the proven track record. My '15 6.0 pulls trailers and plows snow most of it's life.. I was stock for 37,000 miles Put a CZIPAR custom tune on it. I'm now at 49,000. No issues. The truck responds so much better. Perfect shifts. No down shifts on small grades. Down shifts perfectly when needed. The 6.0 is a work horse and with a mild tune it's unstoppable. My mileage stayed the same. I average around 8-10mpgs around town with loads. If you live in the midwest I can get you squared away with CZIPAR 380$ for a custom tune is a steal. I very rarely drive my 05 LLY Dmax anymore.
fjtort2 replied to dan3415's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDCustom tune really helps out these 6.0s. Tuned mine back in July. 5,000 miles of smiles and power! no issues!
fjtort2 replied to ewbldavis's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsMine does it too... 45k miles bars turned up... Haven't found the culprit yet.. Been doing it for 10k miles
fjtort2 replied to Dropsix's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDProgrammer won't do much.. Do a custom tune. Try to find a good local tuner. These 6.0s drive so much better with a mild tune. The towing is excellent as well.
fjtort2 replied to rocnrol's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & ModificationsLooks Awesome!
fjtort2 replied to Techneck28's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado HD & Sierra HD Accessories & ModificationsI have a 2015 6.0 2500hd.. I went with a custom tune from CZIPAR Performance from Dubuque, IA 563-599-8492. Night and day difference in performance on the truck.. Cleaner, crisper shifting. The mileage stayed the same. But much more usable power! Stay a way from the "box tunes" - in store tunes. Find a reputable custom tuner in your area.

fjtort2 replied to fjtort2's topic in 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HDI came from the Hankook Dynapro AT'm. The Hankook was great.. lasted 42,400 miles with heavy towing and plowing each day. So far the EXO Grapplers are wonderful. Very quiet! You can hear the lugs working at low speeds 5-15mph then its basically silent. Excellent wet/ rain traction. Very pleased so far. Now if I can get 40,000miles out of them:)
