Long story but when I bought my '19 truck I drove 500 miles to get it, when I saw it the dealer had added Ranch Hand bumpers front and rear from the Wednesday when I called about the truck until I got there at 7:00 am on Friday, I found salesman that I had been talking to, he said he didn't know they were going to add the $1600 bumpers until he saw them on it, I told him sorry but I don't like them and there is another identical truck 800 miles away that I was going to go buy!!! He talked me into staying while they checked for the stock bumpers and to see how long it would take to put them ba
I found a guy in NY that was building some super simple brackets that go under the rails on my Retrax cover and then use the Thule drip rail mount type risers. and then I use a Large size Sears car top carrier, it looks a little strange but does the job very well for extra dry lockable space.
Long story short stock truck will not start from time to time. Finally did not start first thing in mornings three days in a row so its at dealer now. Any one else had this problem, no trouble codes stored. Tech has seen draws on batteries a few times but it stops before he can isolate it. Any help would be great, driving a Dodge every day is killing me!!!!
I would stay away from the factory hitch, that is the only thing I'm not happy with on my truck. The goose ball is loose in the hitch and now it will not unlock and come out of the hitch. Should have put a B & W in it and thrown the factory one in the trash!!! Just my $0.02 your experience may vary!
I just had kelderman's install their Watts Link rear end set up with air bags, I didn't get any pictures yet but I will. I have noticed that unloaded it rides better, can't wait to hook up one of the trailers and put a load on it and see how it does.
Long story short, had flat time changed tire without any problems. Fixed tire and when I tried to unlock the lift the key will turn but the lock will not come out. If i pull hard the plastic cover wants to pull loose some of the way, anyone else had this happen if what fixed it???
doverarjim replied to JohnL1962's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)I have a recall notice in my 2017 DODGE 1500 work truck that "WHEN THE FUEL TANK STRAPS FAIL FCA WILL REPLACE THEM". I got it when the truck was about one year old I just keep hoping that it don't fall off!!!!
Quick trip to Wally world couple packages of Fish Stink bait, few bottles of deer piss, if you can go over the bridge they are under put one or both out so it runs down into their camp even living in a city you will be surprised at the numbers and types of critters that show up to chow down!!! I've dropped a few bottles of deer pee on accident and had the stink bait fall off the back of the truck a couple of times near people and some of them did not last to long after that. :jester:
My 19 model has been using more DEF than my '11 truck did, in 165,000 miles on the '11 truck DEF cost was $0.00244 per mile. The '19 truck at 49,850 the cost for DEF has been $0.00511 per mile. I have noticed the cost of bulk DEF has gone up the last few years, but I have only used bulk since I first saw it at the local Flying J in 2012!!! with the larger tank in the '19 it is going less miles on average than the '11 truck got about 6,500 miles to tank and the '19 is going about 5,000. :jester:
Years ago we had a church that was given a station wagon around a 79-81 model with very low miles on it to use for $1.00 a year for up to 10 years, the church had to provide everything for the car and could not sell, rent, give away or lease it to anyone. They kept it for years to transport kids and things and after the 10 years they could do anything with it they wanted to. :jester:
My 19 truck is a little rougher than the 11 truck was, but I knew that it would be going into the deal and don't care about a car like ride. Speed bumps can be bad if you hit them to hard, but for the bigger payload it has worked out good for me. My 11 truck would squat about 2-2.5 inches when hooked to my 32 foot cargo trailer and the 19 only goes down about 1 inch with the same trailer and more weight in it. :jester:
Guys this is a GM site we are here because we like the trucks, tires are like oil there are as many who like one brand over another for lots of reasons. I'll run Goodyear's as long as the store manager stays the same, he and I understand each other and get along well, if I go in and need tires he will let me know the best time to buy tires for best price. Tire stores are just like dealers they are only as good as the employees working there. Just my $0.02 worth!!! :jester:
