  1. Does the V nose add to the little running you do? My grill is V nosed and it tows great.
  2. All the trucks are soooonice now. I have had 3 Denali's in the last five years; two 1500 4wd and one 2500 HD. Mixed into them was a 2015 New style F150 EcoBoost, and I currently have a '17 Ram 1500 with everything, including their 4 corner air suspension. They have all been super reliable and competent.
  3. Sadly, I don't think you can get there from here. Aftermarket leather is nice, but a factory interface seems unlikely.
  4. I don't think there is a transmission thermostat. Just a temperature sensor.
  5. Sounds reasonable to me. Especially with your supercharger. It may handle better than stock with it removed. I have no idea what is involved or whether it's a good idea. Someone will chime in soon!
  6. That couldn't hurt anything, but are you sure it's not abnormal noise? I've never heard mine except the DI tick at idle.
  7. Good luck with that. It'll be easy and work fine. OTOH, you can just tap off the rear (full range) speaker leads, add a line converter and a 5 channel amp, and new really good speakers and a sub for a lot less money. And WAY better sound.
  8. eAssist was California only, and 2wd only at that. Has that changed?
  9. You'll want a very large wire, at least 4 gauge, with a big fuse in it. Car stereo wiring kits can accomplish this easily. Run it direct off the battery and terminate it at the back with something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Universal-Electric-Wiring-Disconnect/dp/B0758X8KP7/ref=sr_1_2?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1516147967&sr=1-2&keywords=20+foot+power+cable+with+quick+disconnect Buy a male version of this and wire your winch to it, and voila! power for your trailer winch when you need it.
  10. You can always simply install some switches of your choosing into the wiring harness. Pursuit versions might have an "all dark" switch and, if so, maybe you figure a way to add it. Probably complicated if even possible.
