  1. I have a 2019 6.2 max trailer. Traded from a 2014 5.3 z71 with a tuner on it. Bought it to pull my rv with more authority without the bumpy ride of a 2500 when unloaded. It pulls incredibly well. Big differencr. I could have never passed someone on the highway before, now i do it with ease. The 10 speed with 6.2 is awesome. I usually run 89 octane around town and will do 93 when towing, though i have towed with 89. My biggest complaint is the crappy mpg when towing. 20+ unloaded all day long. 8-9 while towing seems sad tho. But ive learned to get over it. Mostly. My 5.3 oddly would do 10-11 mpg when towing samw rig.
  2. Thanks all. I need it 12v full timw while on. This serves as my rear view mirror when trailer is behind me. Its awesome to have
  3. Any ideas on how to get 12v power to the upper dashboard cubby? I made a mount for my RV rearview camera and hate using the one 12v lighter socket i have. Where would i route it? How would i power it? Thanks!
  4. So....I took it all apart today. The block was fine. The pin was fine. The block pin was in the slot on the spring. However the block is largely hollow and the axle pin was sitting in one of the hollow spots. Not the pin socket on the block. I suspect it's likely been like this since I installed it since the u bolts were completely tight. The right shock is in front of the axle and pulls everything forward. So I hooked up a ratchet strap to the axle and read leaf spring hanger and pulled it all back into place. Seems fine. But Holy crap it messed up my alignment! I'll have to go in next week to get it realigned.

  6. The other coincidental thing I notice is that my rear bumper has been hit by someone in that right rear corner. It's not that bad. It slightly damaged the plastic one the edge of the step molding. And it's very slightly bent down. It's likely been that way for months as it's very mild. But I wonder if someone could have hit me in the parking lot and hit the tire in he process. I can't figure out for the life of me how this mount could be shifted forward. It seems like any driving impact would move it backwards .
  7. It may be that center bolt. You can actually see that the entire axle is shifted on the spring. Is that alignment stud on the axle or the spring? I can't remember. Maybe it sheared off on the block I added. It's been 2 years so I can't really remember. I recall the install was easy enough. No hiccups when we did it.
  8. So, I have 2" level kit in the front and a 1.5" spacer in the rear. I took it in to get realigned after 2 years and they noticed that my rear is significantly out of alignment. The entire axle is crooked. You can even see the spacing of the tires to the fender is different side to side. It looks like my right side has shifted forward somehow. Any ideas how this could happen. Or how to fix it. I also have tow bags so I'm afraid this is gonna be a pain. I almost think I need to lift it but the frame directly above the axle. But thats a huge distance from the ground. No jack would lift it tall enough. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

  10. Honestly I didn't do anything special. I just bought the kit and slapped it on. I believe they were flat. And I don't recall any factory shims when I did it. No vibration at all. Truck rides very smooth. Maybe a little rougher shock absorption on rear end over speed bumps. But I've also added air bags and that makes it stiffer too
  11. Sure. Text me at 832.226.3009. I'm in clear lake
  12. After using the gator for a year and a half I'm not sure i still love it. Its a solid cover when it's closed. And it holds up well to weather. I drove in 40 mph crosswinds and it stayed closed well without the velcro ripping open. Negatives: When it gets warm its like a wet noodle and rolls up crooked and likes to fall inside the rails. Its not near as sturdy as the access tonnea was in this regard. Also the latch being only of the left side is a huge pain in the ass when a trailer is connected. Finally, the access could be closed with the tailgate closed but the gator requires the tailgate to be opened first. All In all its an okay tonnea but I would probably bay a little more for a different brand next time.
  13. Has anyone opened the console and taken measurements of the sub box? I was considering making one to fit an 8 like folks did in the K2s. However I've been looking at some of those "under the seat" subwoofers on Amazon. I know they won't hit that hard but the bose sub doesn't hit at all, so I figure I might try to fit one in there. Any info is helpful. Thanks
  14. I have a aubwoofer box that fits in the console of a K2 that I never got around to installing. I bought it on ebay. Sealed it extra tight. Then traded truck before I got it in. I'm keeping the sub but the box is over 100 bucks online. If u live I Houston and drive down to clear lake, its yours. I'm not shipping or going to any effort more than meeting in my driveway. Lol. Let me know if you can use it. PM me for address
