  1. Warm it up. And make a trip down the highway. Beat on it and get it nice and hot try to burn some of the crap out of it that may have built up over time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Believe you can get a tuner to turn off the afm. I know it can me done mechanically with new rockers and lifters I believe. Not to sure. As I have a 2500hd with 6.0 that doesn’t have it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 2012 has a different lug pattern than 2010 and older. They never came with a 16 I don’t believe. So I highly doubt they will clear the brakes. 17 is the smallest I know that came on 2500s. I would find another set of cheap 17s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Probably pitman arm, tires could cause a vibration too. How did the road force? Even if they balance good, they could still have a bad road force measurement and cause a rough ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. There you go. Can figure out wiring for that and wire it into that some how. Those should be a toggle type Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. True. I would do a toggle switch. Or find a factory switch for your truck, for an option that your truck doesn’t have. Say like a sunroof. Get a bezel for a sunroof truck, and wire it to that switch. Looks factory and wouldn’t think anything of it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah can do that. To where have to hold button and crank at same time. Remember, you don’t have 2 right arms. So put it somewhere that you can do both. Maybe make a small bracket and mount it under the driver seat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. For temp use it will be fine. Nice thing about newer chevy is the onstar, can track and shut the car down. I would hide said switch away from driver area. Maybe behind back seat or somewhere that you would never think to look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. No it shouldn’t. Install a kill switch somewhere if you don’t want to keep pulling the fuse. You could also pull the fuel pump relay. Same thing happened to my parents. My fathers 06 f350 powerstroke got stolen while he was in training for his job. Beautiful truck. Leveled, aftermarket wheels and brand new terra grapplers. Also had full straight pipe exhaust. Extremely clean 1 owner truck. Disappeared. Down here in Florida, the truck was taken and was a mad dash to Miami so it could go in a shipping container. Never seen the truck again. I would do a kill switch that’s hidden somewhere. Or keep pulling fuse or fuel pump relay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. What is the difference between a 07-10 rear bumper and a 2011 plus rear bumper? I just purchased a 2007-10 ironcross rear bumper, brand new for $400. My truck is a 2011. Is there going to be fitment issues? Or will it bolt up? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Tomorrow will be going for an alignment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The center link on my truck is an "isolated" center link that has the bushing that I am assuming is grease filled. The bushing seems to have play in it as well as leaking grease. Is the bushing itself replaceable? Also is the center link replaceable with a 3500 non isolated center link. The bushing is to stop road vibration, a little vibration won't bother me any. I just want to tighten the steering up. Everything else is tight and I do have tie rod sleeves too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. New center link, pitman arm, tie rods (inner and outer) and sleeves are all in. Bolted in as they should. Centerlink is a direct swap to delete the isolator. Steering is so much tighter! It was a 2 day job. I was fighting the rust and the gearbox. I totally removed the gearbox and busted the pitman arm off. I had to cut the pitman arm off of the gearbox. I had running around to do in order to find a socket to fit the pitman arm. 1 13/16. I didn’t have one big enough at the house. But now I do. I also ordered rough country’s kicker bars for the front cross member. Supposed to be a direct bolt on.. they are not. My factory cross member has no holes. So I emailed them, if anything. I’ll weld the brackets to the cross member. Overall, im happy with the new centerlink. I did not get the cognito supports, as I have heard they will have issues with the stabilizer. Maybe in the future I will add them. Next things to do, 4.88 front and rear, and fox shocks front and rear. Rough country shocks are terrible. And then a set of traction bars.

  14. Okay, so for future reference to anyone that may search this in the future. As no forum I have seen has a solid answer and it’s not really talked about. If you have a standard cab or an extended cab, and it has the isolated center link with the big rubber bushing, you can purchase a center link for a crew cab and it is a direct swap! The only thing different between an extended cab and a crew cab is the isolated center link. The pitman arm and idler are the same. So if you want to delete your isolated center link. Purchase a center link for a crew cab that is the same year as yours. It’s a direct swap into your truck! Also for steering components, I would suggest rock auto as they seemed to be the cheapest for moog Parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What do you carry for your CCW?

    I’ve heard a lot of good from alien gear. I’m looking for something comfortable. The appendix is where I carry mine now. The hard kydex is a killer in the car. I think what I’m going to do is get a new holster and take my old holster and fab a mount for it, to mount it under the seat of my truck or in the center console or something. So when I’m driving I can slip it into the holster in the truck and not worry about it till I get out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. For anyone insterested, I purchased all new inner and outer tie rods, have tie rod sleeves, new pitman arm, new centerlink (crew cab, it deletes the isolator bushing) and kicker braces for my lift. Hoping to get it all installed soon and an alignment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I purchased the bumper. The factory bumper bolts to the hitch. The new bumper does not bolt to the hitch. Will this effect the integrity of the hitch? The heaviest load I will carry is a 22x8.5 car trailer with a car or truck on it. Or trailer with side by sides on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. What do you carry for your CCW?

    Looking for a new iwb holster? What do you guys suggest? Have a kydex holster now. Digs into me in the car and it’s uncomfortable. Looking at the Iwb appendix holster by aliengear. For a Glock 27. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I would assume it would be a normal 1500. I don’t believe the 1500 is any different than the HD besides the suspension. I believe the body and such is all the same. But I may be wrong Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Yes. Over time, parts wear out. It could be a bug and just lost communication, or there could be something wrong. Can’t really tell over the computer. Someone with more info will hopefully add information in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Means that it put itself into a safety to prevent damage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Probably because it is in fail safe mode. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. They might be able to tell you more. As to why the codes are coming up. Someone else might be able to chime in and help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. The trans is probably in fail safe then. Did you have the code cleared? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. First, need to have the code read. If you know anyone with a reader. Or autozone can do it. And go from there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
