  1. Unless they have really changed things up you get a factory choice between an LT275/65/18C MT and a 275/60/20 AT. That's why you have those two choices? I guess the answers come down to style preference and capability desired. Those mud terrains are really good but loud and the all-terrains provide a really good balance and are very quiet. Also the 18s are a 32-in tire and the 20 is a 33-in tire.
  2. I loved the factory trail runners quiet ride, exceptional wear and great fuel economy. They didn't have the street presence of a dedicated off-road tire so I switched up to the grabber ATX . They wear well.... But they suck for daily driving.
  3. You might need to do a screen capture of that picture to convert it to a JPG file
  4. GM doesn't seem to mind paying for a rental vehicle for a month while waiting on backorder bolts. Crazy. Maybe use your intended use of the vehicle to get them to authorize an HD truck from enterprise truck rental?
  5. I picked the truck up on a saturday when the tech wasn't working. I'm trying to find out if he found anything broken or if it was simply replace what TAC said.
  6. Yeah that might not happen. Leveling or 2-3 inch kit maybe
  7. https://www.transmissiondigest.com/quick-peek-at-new-ford-gm-10-speed/ Explains the noise I guess https://gearsmagazine.com/magazine/where-did-the-front-pump-go-on-fords-new-10r80-10-speed-trans/ It's normal in fords https://www.blueovaltrucks.com/tech-articles/10r80-10-speed-automatic-transmission-whine/
  8. Jeep did something similar back in 2005 with the WK... And I think that system was a copy of some Mercedes system from the ml320/50?
  9. Grounds? Start with main chassis ground off the battery. Confirm with a voltmeter that it's actually not charging?
  10. You never stack gaskets. The black gasket you received is good for the tool box in case you damage the blue one.
  11. Update...internal transmission parts on order. Will post invoice once job complete.
  12. Follow-up. Dropped at dealer after loud whining that varied with RPM started coming from under truck. Service writers even turned their head to see. Guess we'll see if it's a CND and operating "normally".
  13. Very similar to another poster 2 years ago. Parking brake light comes on solid, check engine light flashes and adaptive cruise disabled. 30 seconds later all warning indications go away and transmission downshifts are really hard. 17,875 miles. Thoughts?
  14. Looks good! I opted for the GM catback and intake along with Grabber A/TX LT305/55R20. Big weight penalty over factory for sure. Massacres gas mileage. Before 20-23 was no problem at 75. Now lucky to get 17 over the course of a tank at those speeds.
  15. I think that's a fair assessment. TFL claims only a .36 second 0-60 time difference in the 6.2's favor at altitude. That lines up with your math in my opinion.
  16. Just watch your tongue weight....most of your weight is going to be way back by the axles to make this feasible...and you're going to need weight distribution too. 2500-3500 do not have a requirement for a WDH at these proposed weights.
  17. I would buy a used 3500 or 2500 before I tried actually working a 1/2 ton this way. Tow quality is going to blow. Airbags will help...LT tires will help... How much do you care about the tow limits established by the manufacturer? Depending on the weight of the cargo you might be better served with a tandem axle bumper pull utility trailer. Big tex has a lightweight trailer with cargo capacity of 5500lbs.
