  1. Is there any actual residue on the glass or is it more of a shadow? I rely on 3M adhesive remover for any tough jobs, but the stuff is pretty caustic.
  2. I’ve read a bit recently having got the recall notice as well. Seems like the reprogramming just uses the ABS as a backup in case of the decreased vacuum scenario. I’ve held off on getting it done, when I go for my next oil change I’m going to ask them about it. The odd thing to me is I revived a notice in September saying do not do anything unless you had the described symptoms. Then I received an official recall notice a few weeks later saying address immediately. I just received another notice yesterday, marked Nov 19, saying don’t bring it in unless symptoms are present. And also included a refund form to fill out in case you already paid for any service. Now I’m a bit confused.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. This is the module and wiring in the drivers cockpit to the left of your foot. I popped the cover off while vacuuming tonight and noticed a section of the wire pack had a huge deposit of dried salt around it; likely from the previous winter. (You can see where it’s still white). That cloth-like wrap is the worst for moisture. They use it for the fog light wiring and it draws and holds water like crazy. Just curious what these wires go to in case of any problems down the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As in too little mileage per year or too much mileage per year? I think the average is 15k per year, so your ‘18 comes in just below average. As long as you keep up with maintenance, mileage should be no issue. Up here in the northeast, at least, the body will fail long before high mileage kills it. Just curious, how many miles did your ‘16 have on it, and why the trade?
  5. I have a low tolerance for rattles, ticks, and squeaks. My truck developed a brief but annoying brake squeak say the final 1-2 feet before stopping. It happens about 80% of the time, all in stop-and-go traffic. With that said, I took apart the front brakes, scrubbed and Brake-Kleened the pad clips, cleaned and lubed the pins, and applied CRC disc brake quiet to the backs of the pads. Torqued everything back up and the noise is still there! Granted I did not do the rears, but it seems to me, at least sitting in the cab with my head out the window, the noise seems to come from the front. Any ideas? PS these are the front pads with 55k miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I don’t think you can go wrong with either. Seems like opinions are pretty much 50/50 split between the two. I have the Duratracs in 265/70/17 and they’ve been decent. Good in the snow, not over the top noisy, but they have developed a bit of scalloping wear on the inside edge. I’ll probably get 40k out of them running them year round. My next set will be the KO2s just to see the difference first hand.
  7. Thanks for the heads up. Original battery, I’ll be sure to test it first.
  8. +1 for buying the tool. Quick, cheap, and easy.
  9. Lately, my truck doesn’t seem to turn over cleanly. Almost like the starter isn’t engaging solidly. Happens like 1 out of 5 starts. 2015 Sierra with 54k miles. Any ideas?
  10. If I was a betting man, it’s the same issue outlined in the thread below. I’ve had this noise since day 1 with my 2015 (almost like a rattle snake noise from the footwell under acceleration). Followed this fix this weekend and the noise is completely gone. Worth a shot.
  11. Yeah, still running the stock Ranchos with 53k miles on them. I’ve got a set of Bilstein 4600s in the garage waiting to swap out.
  12. Did this today, awesome fix. Drove around for a while with the windows up and radio off just to enjoy the silence!
  13. I agree with you, seems like they shouldn’t be wearing like this. I’ve had the alignment checked by two different shops and suspension components check out OK as well. Basically been told “it is what it is” and “that’s the nature of the tire.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
