  1. This.... why would you buy another that'll more than likely have the same issue? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I'd test the batteries to start, strange things can happen if they're going. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. No crank? Or cranks without firing? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. It also helped that Ram fired off multiple pre production demo trucks to tons of youtube channels. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. Great question, I dropped the pickup off for a rebuild not long after that post. After the rebuild, it had a leak on the trans/xfer case gasket, so it had to go back for that to be fixed (I had to rent a pickup for a trip I took while it was waiting to go back in). I have put about 2000 miles on it since then, and it is working great with no leaks or other issues! Total cost $1900 (plus $600 for the Ram 2500 Limited rental that I put about 1600 miles on).

  6. Sad update for 222,222 miles because I missed taking a picture of it. Truck is going in next week for some much needed attention. New water pump, oil pump (and $5 o-ring), gaskets (oil pan, timing cover, front main, valve covers). New exhaust manifold bolts and gaskets, flush power steering. Finally, new passenger side ball joints after 222k on the originals. I guess I'm planning on keeping it a while longer, haha. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. I didn't realize anyone was run off. In general, this forum is the most tame I've ever been on. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. That is a possibility, but the body will rust off well before then. To be honest, I regret taking such good care of the body. I now have a straight, swirl free body with no scratches that is rusting from all the spot welds anyway. Still a great pickup though. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. If you wheel, I would step up in rating in the stock size. Plenty of people run C range tires with good results. I run E and haven't had a flat in 120,000 miles so I'll be sticking with them..... Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. Just over 220,000. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. 4L60? I just got mine rebuilt for $1900, but it made it to 218k. Surprised yours died so quickly. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. I have seen a few pickups recently with "shortbed" campers in a longbed with transfer tank in front. It is interesting that the camper specials manufacturers used to make haven't really been reincarnated. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. To be fair, tons of vehicles have electric trunk releases that work just fine. Sure, most of them have manual backups. Having a button only seems like a solution looking for problems. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. As long as it hasn't been overheated, a partial refill should be fine. I did mine every 30-40k miles. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. I hadn't seen this thread. Ultimately, I spend less time in general on the forum because I spent so much back in the day, in a way. When I got my 2006, I spent a lot of time getting it 'perfect' for the long haul. This site is a great resource, and obviously most of the members at the time owned GMT800s. Any upgrade you could think of had a thread. I've now owned the 2006 for over 9 years thanks to the info from the site. It has been a great vehicle, and much of that is thanks to info from here. Most members who still have 800s are done with the fun stuff and are just driving them. Ultimately, I have no interest in newer GM vehicles other than pure curiosity. They don't seem to be very reliable, and the only repetitive issue I had on my 2006 seems to be replicated (and worse) on some T1's (lookin at you, Service 4x4 [emoji23]). At the end of the day, there isn't a single segment in the car market I would pick a GM for. The competition is simply better. Things have changed, hell, FCA has the best transmission in multiple segments [emoji1787] (ZF8). The 2006's replacement will probably be a Tundra. It is US made, has a big, reliable V8 with no AFM/DOD, and has been in production long enough that parts are cheap, even with the low production volume. I know it is low tech, but I want a pickup that will easily make 200,000 miles, and I have the most confidence in the Tundra to do that. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
