  1. 2019 GMC Sierra - Focus On Tailgate and Cargo Box

    Yep confirmed does not work with hitch installed...
  2. So another feature that can't be used with a hitch on the truck? Just like the backup alert (whatever it's called) on my dually that beeps at me because I have a hitch, who would have thought that someone who owns a truck would have a hitch on it? Certainly not the people that design these things lol. I wonder if this nonsense will be carried over to the HDs.
  3. Mobil-1 rebate

    https://mobiloil.com/en/promotion/mobil-promotions for fellow diesel users. Shell also has their rebates going on as well. Autozone has $20 off the 5 gallon buckets of delvac 1300 and some of the Shell 5 gallon buckets are $20 off as well.
  4. Mobil-1 rebate

    New round of rebates are up as of the 1st of March. This is a new rebate period so you can get another 10 quarts, or if you need delvac 10 gallons like I do. Trying to debate if I want another 10 gallons when I already have 12.5.
  5. Towing Tires and a Hitch

    I've been running slightly wider than stock (The OEM size Defenders weren't out yet when I bought my tires I guess) Michelin Defenders on my '09 dually. 31k on them and they still look good, even have some of the mold stickie thingies on them. Paid $1410 March 31st 2016. Changed the receiver on it and bought new shaft and head to go with the bigger receiver. Currently I've got https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Reese/RP54977.html and https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories-and-Parts/Reese/RP58167.html poking out of the receiver. I've got a quick change ball for the light stuff and a 20k ball for my boat. Since I can't use weight distribution I'm thinking about getting a weigh safe drop hitch ball mount, just wish the 2.5" ones were rated for higher than 14.5K for a little extra "breathing" room.
  6. What do you carry for your CCW?

    What do you do that you wear out your belts? My belt man belts are still going strong. Only reason I bought another one was because I got too fat for the first one. Dang 8 years ago today I ordered that first belt. Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
  7. Desktop, Laptop, or what?

    It's not a bad option, but I'd rather run push/push to get rid of the whine. My rear exhaust fan could almost be the pull anyway. All I have to do is contact Noctua after I buy and receive the AM4 board/cpu to show them I bought it and they'll send me a bracket free. Or I can just buy a bracket from them before I upgrade. With the way component prices are continuing to suck I think my boat will be getting thousands of dollars of electronics before I spend a couple grand on a new computer build.

  8. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Changed shocks, steering stabilizer, and brake fluid. All 4 shocks were bad and I'm not an expert but that's some dirty brake fluid. Pretty sure that's all factory stuff. 75k and almost 9 years since rolling off the dealer's lot brand new. Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
  9. Desktop, Laptop, or what?

    Yeah that's what I have is a NH-D15. $88 and going strong since mid 2016. Only have 2 problems with it. My ram is too tall so I have to run it like you did in push/pull instead of push/push. For some reason mine whines in this setup once middle fan ramps up. I'll have to contact Noctua to get the AM4 mounting bracket when I build a new system. Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
  10. Desktop, Laptop, or what?

    Noctua nice, seems I'm not the only one left using expensive air coolers instead of AIOs. Does it not clear the ram oriented the other way? Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
  11. Well crap I saw their sale but didn't see the free install part. Ordered a set of 4600s from Amazon Sunday. I guess I'll be installing them myself. If you haven't ordered from 4wheelparts yet try coupon code 4WPAFEXAPR5 for another 5% off. I don't know if it specifically works with Topcashback or not, supposedly another 6% cashback if you go through that CB site as well. With all that it would have come out about the same as amazon and not having to install myself.
  12. 20k off might entice me to upgrade from my 2009 3500HD. Especially if I can get a good price for my current truck.
  13. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Ordered 4 shocks and a steering stabilizer. Also ordered some resistors and soon I'll order the LED bulbs, by the time I'm done only the headlights and driving/fog lights will be non LED. Also pulled the headlight housings off yesterday in an attempt to rid them of the yellowing. Mostly worked, they're cleaner looking but I think I need a different clear coat/sealer or better prep work. Did a light sanding with 3000 wet paper this morning before putting the housings back in. Didn't end up with any extra parts so that's a plus. I'll wait a few days do another light sanding with 3000 wet paper and then use some plastic polish on them. Went down to my shop to see if they were too busy to do an oil change, they were. I'd do it myself but I don't have a good way to measure the oil as I pour it out of the 5 gallon buckets it's in. Plus for $0 or $10 I can have someone else do it with no clean up or disposal for me.
  14. My board is too old and can't handle the 8370 or I'd probably thrown that on there when they went on sale. Can't complain for $100 the 8320 has been working for a couple years. Sent from my Find7 using Tapatalk
