  1. I literally just swapped mine last night. The stock one came off tougher than I expected, but I was able to remove it. I do believe there is some sort of thread locker on there, heat should help.
  2. There's also registration limits in some states. I know for here in VT, you have to register your truck for a certain load capacity. For example, I have mine registered for the lowest load weight (up to 6099 lbs). If curb weight is 5200-5400lbs, that doesn't leave much for gear, buddies, etc to be over the legal limit. (although I've rarely heard of anyone being fined)
  3. Update: WeatherTech offered me 50% off a replacement rear set. Since they're about 4 years old, I do not have an original receipt, and they're $40 MRSP new, I felt that was a reasonable offer.
  4. Good review, I’m going for a set of KO2s next. Currently have 34k miles on Duratracs with 6-7/32nds left. While they’ve handled pretty good, I’m curious if the KO2s are better.
  5. They seem to be flush against the fender well, no gap at the crease. The bend seems to start the at free hanging part below the mounting points. It’s odd, both are doing it, the driver’s side more than the passenger. I don’t believe I backed over anything, they’re pretty rugged, seems like it’d take a lot to bend one.

  6. Sorry, I’ve been meaning to snap a picture. Maybe it’s my imagination but I thought they sat straighter? Does it look like they’re curling toward the tire? This is the rear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Has anyone had issues with their weathertech mudflaps warping? The rear ones on my Sierra seem to be curling in toward the tire, not sure why. They’re about 4 years old now, but they used to sit flat and square. I’ve taken them off, cleaned everything and reinstalled, thinking they might have come off a bit, but no improvement.
  8. Thanks, seems like a lot of folks had the clicking issue while turning the wheel. I can move mine laterally ever so slightly. (Maybe will take a video if someone is interested). Seems like it may be a bad bushing as mentioned above. I’ll have to keep an eye on it.
  9. Anyone ever experience play in their steering wheel? Not between the wheels and the steering but in the actual steering wheel itself. If I grab the wheel at the 2:00 and 8:00 positions, I can rock the steering wheel ever so slightly back in forth, almost with a faint clicking sensation. Is there any way to tighten the steering wheel?
  10. Were there any symptoms before it died? Mine turns over oddly every now and then. Battery checked out OK.
  11. +1. 5-10 minutes each spring: a wire cup on the cordless and a few coats of rustoleum and you’re good till next year.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
