  1. I wish someone would come out with a big brake kit for these trucks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The problem with this is in places like colorado where they sand our roads in the winter it will get chipped and look like hell in short order. I would love a denali grill made from black ABS plastic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 8,200 miles on mine never had any issues. I did have the camera on the left show a black screen for a bit but fixed itself Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a big brake kit for my truck for 2 reasons. I I agree it could use more brakes and 2 I think the red calipers would look good behind my 22x10 wheels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Because comprehensive covers theft flood fire vandalism and collision with birds or animals. Collision covers accidents. And metal fatigue has absolutely nothing to do with any of these. Your looking for a warranty or a manufacturing defect claim. Insurance is and was never designed to be a warranty or maintenance program if that were the case everyone would be filing claims for that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I can tell you right now as an insurance advisor of 17 years there’s no way in hell insurance will cover that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You can view the split screen with no timeout while towing I do it all the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I had my oil changed for the first time about a month ago and I now have about 8,000 miles on the truck. It’s been a while since I heard it but I think the noise might be gone or at least it’s a lot less than it was. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. You can view the cameras I think manually while driving for 7 seconds Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. You just have to have a trailer connected. Nothing else Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My experience as well, the app should say “trailer NOT SELECTED” rather than “trailer disconnected” Try going to the trailer app (while stopped won’t work while driving) and select your trailer. If it does get disconnected they your electric brakes, if they work your still connected and this verifies a ground. Next step try a turn signal, if the screen goes to the side view camera the truck definitely knows there is a trailer connected. If neither works I recommend you take a small wire wheel and a dremmel tool to clean the contacts of your connector and smear some dielectric grease on your connector to keep the water out, and see if that improves your connection. I use the grease and the only part you need to watch out for is dropping the plug in the dirt. It’s a pain in the ass to clean after that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. They do have dyno graphs on each product they sell. While I agree that an exhaust won’t make much difference on a gas truck, I also know that the primary limiting factor on the Duramax is exhaust heat. As I explained earlier when the EGT reaches I think 1400 or 1500F the ECU will detune. The reason EGT is so critical is in a diesel the fuel is actually injected as it burns. The problem this causes a f the engine needs more fuel there is only so much that can be injected before the pistons reach the bottom of the stroke. The flame is literally chasing the piston down the bore. The closer it gets to the bottom of the stroke the more heat ends up in the exhaust as the exhaust valve opens. Gale preaches on the fact he doesn’t like to inject beyond I think 26 degrees? (I forget) for this very reason. Now take the 2020 duramax I don’t know what exactly changed from 2019 but if you look the derringer made a lot more power on the 2020 than the 2019. It has everything to do with the 20 having significantly lower EGT. So if the exhaust flows better and more importantly stays cooler I have no doubt the derringer can put more fuel and boost into the engine with an advantage of lower EGTs I’m also confident the intakes make more power because anything that offers less restrictions on the intake or more importantly more dense cold air for an air hungry turbo will make more power. Banks also says boost is meaningless and he’s right, you can have a lot of boosted hot air with a low air density making a fraction of the HP less boost and more air density makes. I would be curious to see what my truck does at sea level, here in colorado we get robbed about 25% with our less dense air Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Sweet may have to take u up on that! I just need to find some time, I’m running 3 businesses and trying to get my basement finished. Send me your number we will connect Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’ve been driving with the derringer for a while now. While I can say I am not as impressed with it as I had hoped to be I strongly support this product over all others for a simple reason that gale has mentioned time and time again that I think your missing. The face is NO OTHER tuner reads the data out of the stock computer in real time the way banks does. If you go to their YouTube channel you’ll see how they have tested the competition against theirs on the dyno and I think definitely proves the others are the real snake oil. Of all the others there might be 1 or 2 that make close to the claimed power but the problem is they don’t monitor EGT or trans slip. As a result the ECM will pull back power when EGT gets too high. This will cause the truck to make less power than stock! So if there are any real gains they only occur for about a minute or so until the EGT hits the max threshold. They basically pour fuel blindly with no feedback as to the EGT or if the trans is slipping ect. Banks makes the power safely and will de-tune as needed to keep it safe. Also won’t load the DPF with soot. Why risk doing damage to your truck? All banks numbers are backed on the dyno. Look on YouTube for the reviews I have yet to see any that contradict banks claims but just the opposite from competitors. Gayle is a data and numbers junkie! Watch his videos. The man is obsessed! He has the data and based on the fact he is so up front about the research they have done, (look at the time they put into a diff cover!) I 100% trust their research. Everything they do is based on numbers. Other tuners are just trying to make a buck and have no proof to back it up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
