  1. June 2019 I bought a 2017 certified pre owned Sierra 2500HD gas and love it. This was a good compromise between new, and used with high mileage and no warranty. Less $ than new but with warranty, dealer and factory support if I need it. Ram is making an overall good product and many like their interior better. They may take the lead in variety of storage spaces hidden throughout the truck too. Overall longevity is likely not as good but you already acknowledged this in your resale comments.

  2. I don't think any of them power extend but you can select options for the forward facing lights, having both upper and lower mirrors heated, etc. I configured a pair the way I would want them and it came to about a grand. I don't need them that badly! Sent from the demons in my head
  3. My previous 6.0 in an older generation truck gave me codes at high RPM with the K & N filter and cold air intake even though they promise it will not. Put the stock airbox back, no more codes in the same predictable situations (towing uphill) that K & N always gave me codes on. I will be looking for a cold air intake for the 2017 truck but will only use a dry filter. I'll probably go with AFE GM Silverado HD/Sierra HD 16-17 V8-6.0L w/ Mechanical Fan Part Number AFE54-74108 Once I have an extra $450 I don't want that is. Blackbear tested it on I believe a stock truck and has dyno sheet to prove some modest HP increase across the band, +20HP at the top RPMs where my engine will rarely be but still seems like a better option to me than the rest. Oops, forgot you were talking about dmax not gasser. Sent from the demons in my head
  4. Well that's great when you have cellular coverage or didn't lock your phone in your truck. I frequently travel through and camp in areas with no coverage and have been locked out in such an area. Climbed a hill, called OnStar, nope, they can't find my truck. Luckily my camper was unlocked and I was able to use the old coat hanger trick to unlock a door. Sent from the demons in my head
  5. That link above is for a 1500 with a 5.3. I'm looking for similar for a 2500HD 6.0 Maybe I'm using tapatalk wrong but I believe this is the HD section of the forum. Sent from the demons in my head
  6. I'd be interested in same for a 2017 W/T. I looked into it and didn't find any simple solutions or kits. Some say they're less efficient towing / hauling in extreme hot weather. Maybe that's why. It sure would be nice most of the rest of the time to have the benefits of the electric fan if a quality kit was available. Sent from the demons in my head
  7. Which would be best for _______? How are you using it? Daily driver for short trips, hauling a flatbed trailer with a small tractor every day or something in between? I went with gas but I drive empty 10 minutes each way to work daily. I can tow / haul when I need to but couldn't justify the extra cost for the diesel. Not just the initial cost but the maintenance costs. Sent from the demons in my head
  8. I read it as ...too great... Sent from the demons in my head
  9. Very nice! Thanks for the follow-up post. Questions: How many holes in all did you drill, 2? Or 2 per side? Any issues with airbag sensors / error lights on the instrument panel? I notice the extra vents, accessory outlets under the back of the middle seat. Are they hooked up? Did you have those before with your old setup? Sorry if some of these are rookie questions. I did read your posts but I'm new to these trucks so not entirely sure what exactly was there before and what all still works after. Man that's awesome though not having the death seat in the front middle. Well done! Sent from the demons in my head
  10. Welcome to the HD club. This is my first as well. I come from Suburbans before the truck. '17 2500HD 6.0 gas WT (mine's a GMC so it's called "base" but same thing). I love the manual lever on the floor for the 4WD shifting. About the color... White is right! Sent from the demons in my head
  11. Depending on where you are you can resell that on FB marketplace or Craigslist and do ok. People around me in Montana love those things! I'd ask places that install those bumpers what they do with the factory take offs. They would know where to find them. You may even find them for sale from those same places I mentioned. Hopefully they didn't butcher the frame to mount it. Sent from the demons in my head
  12. 2017 Sierra Base 2500HD here and I agree 100% And bonus... The 4WD lever on the floor screams TRUCK! Sent from the demons in my head
  13. I had similar, though probably not as bad, in a 2006 Suburban. I learned to ignore it. Sent from the demons in my head
  14. How do you have it switched in the cab? What type of switch and where did you mount it? Sent from the demons in my head
  15. Nice work man. Thanks for sharing. Sent from the demons in my head
