  1. Easiest route is to find a donor truck and test it. Figure out if it’s the trailer or the truck. Otherwise, you better have some knowledge in testing the system if you don’t want to bring it into a shop and pay.
  2. Has anyone had their rear wheel wells sprayed with LineX? I had mine sprayed before I picked up the truck from the dealer last summer, come to find out this spring they didn't spray to the edge of the fender and left paint exposed. It started chipping too. My other issue is that it has runs in it, like spray paint does if you spray it on too thick. We brought it over to the linex location and they kept being persistent that its normal because its a tight area and you can't avoid the runs. Texture is really smooth as well because, again, they can't spray it to get the textured look like the bed. So since it's normal (not that I believe it), can anyone confirm?
  3. Installed Bilstein 5100s in front and back. Set them at the 2.5 mark in front. 2.25” Readylift blocks in back. New BF KO2 tires all around. Just waiting for my alignment appointment.
  4. 2" factory lift, rims/tires, gearing... all of those will change the mileage ratings.
  5. I honestly think it does fine on the highway but hey, I came from a 2012 Sierra with the 4.8 that I bought new and drove for 9 years.. my duramax feels like a little rocket compared to my 4.8
  6. It came with it from the factory, it's not a 20" rim, its a 17 I think but the overall tire size is 33". I think it's an automatic thing when the 275/60/20 is optioned for the truck.
  7. I have the stock 275/60R20 (33" tire) and the spare matches this size so I'd guess you could at least fit anything up to a 33" in that space.
  8. You need to cut it out. No other way around it. Put a new bolt in after. This goes for the 2.7 and 3.0
  9. I guess I never heard anyone I know complain about the noise with these tires. I'll probably end up running KO2's, they run around the same price here as any other tire and I've always liked them. Is the size that's of concern. I think the 275/65 is the best route, rather not risk rubbing with the 285.
  10. I'd suggest not running those nice 22's in the off seasons and just getting some steelies in a smaller rim? Biggest regret on my last truck was running my rims through the winters so I bought winter tires and rims this time around.
  11. Why not call the dealer you bought it from? Report back. They must know why it’s there it’s clearly not stock.
  12. Could be just the 1500s. I don’t care if gm fixes it or not. Still enjoy the trucks and I don’t mind my fix.
  13. It's just typical GM leaf springs. Every truck since my 98 has done it. Homemade fix, but bicycle tubes, cut them in like 6" lengths and spread the springs apart to slip them between. Acts like a rubber insulator and I only had to replace them every 3-4 years. Haven't done it to the new truck yet but I'm sure I will in the summer.
  14. I've got just over 6000km not have still almost 2/3 on the DEF gauge. I'm not even considering it an extra cost. I understand towing makes it drink a bit more but everyday driving, I don't think it uses much at all. Oil changes on the other hand, that's pricy here up north at $15 a qt.
  15. Does anyone know of red 7443 bulbs that have the resisters built in? Or are we stuck buying bulbs and installing inline resisters? Had no problem finding the front amber for the turn signals.
