  1. Fuse #3 under the hood. Disables antilock but also disables stabilicrap permanently. Just push the button when you start the truck to turn off traction control. Then learn to brake like we did before all these computers.
  2. I have always done this on my trucks. I let them run for 20 minutes. Never been a problem. Usually have 150,000 to 250,000 km on them when I trade them off. Not sure why it would be?
  3. I have 275 70 R18 on fuel 18 x 9 with +18mm offset. There are zero issues with fitment. No rubbing at all . Tires line up even with the fenders basically. I do have the factory plastic mudflaps though not thick rubber ones. Most aftermarket wheels will not be close to the factory offset. No issues with wear either. I have gas engine and run Duratrac tires and for some reason the back and front tires wear almost dead even without even rotating them. Diesel trucks are probably different though as the front end would be heavier.
  4. That I do not know. I removed a fuse to disable all of it as it took over from me in a skid on ice once and put my truck in the ditch. I learned to drive long before all this computer garbage and it doesn’t really work in snow and ice all that well.
  5. There are two systems. Traction control detunes the motor when the rear wheels start spinning. Stabilitrac uses the antilock brake system to work the brakes when the vehicle is skidding. Sometimes the stabilitrac system will malfunction and come on when turning and that produces a grinding noise due to the antilock brakes engaging. Pushing the traction control button turns off traction control, holding it down for 5 seconds also turns off stabilicrap. Until 56 km per hour, then it automatically comes back on since 2014.
  6. There is a very good video series on you tube from Gale Banks. The after market differential covers are usually not as good as the factory one. Just more of a gimmick than helpful it seems.
  7. I have had many sets of these. I like them. They are good in mud ( had set of Nitto all terrains once thet were garbage) not as noisy as a mud tire ( but a little louder than highway tires for sure) and decent in snow. With running them at 60 psi they ride rougher than the factory tires for sure. I got 90,000 km out of my last set and probably could have gone a little longer. That is with pulling a trailer about twice a month ( holiday trailer or skid steer type of thing) for a couple hundred km each trip. They last longer I found than th BFG AT KO. Never tried the KO2's though.
  8. Not all trim levels get the fancy tailgate some come with a one piece still.
  9. I had a very similar problem with our old dodge minivan. After a year of trying to solve the problem with 5 dealerships it turned out to be the whole ignition piece that the key fit into. Completely different vehicle i realize but it sounds like the exact same symptoms. Like turning the key off. Maybe some where to start looking anyway....
  10. So I just got my truck back. At 134,000 km the nut backed off and my steering got loose. $400.00 to lock tight a bolt seems a little steep..... But steering is back to normal again. Hope it stays tight from now on.
  11. Check the manual for the fuses. Maybe they have their own fuse you can pull. Worked for me for disabling stabilicrap.
  12. I think it is a magnaflow. Single in and out. Stock tailpipe
  13. When I got a new muffler I didn't know they were going to put a 3 inch on. When I got home I looked and discovered it wasn't 3.5 inch. I called and asked why and they said they didn't have the equipment to bend 3.5 inch pipe. They said they do it all the time. That was 3 years and 120,000km ago and I have never noticed anything bad. Not sure if I will just get the same muffler again when this one burns out or go to a different shop and pay more to get a 3.5 inch with 3.5 inch pipe bent.
  14. Does that require a wheel alignment after? What brand did you use? I have thought about doing this myself. Thanks.
  15. How much work was it to install a steering stabilizer? Was it bolt on or did it require removing any parts to install it?
