  1. Max Tow with 22" wheels

    The lower the profile of the tire the higher the possibility of blowing the bead under load. Larger sidewalls IE 16,17,18 have way more flex. That's why you always see smaller sized wheels on the actual trailer. 20's and down still have a decent sidewall flex. I had 22's on my last truck it towed but you could see the pressure the wheels where under. It was enough I wanted to go back to 20's on my new truck.
  2. GM Stepping Up on Brake Issue

    The 2018 have Pump - 12669488 it replaces part numbers12654013, 12659655, 12660004, 12662552. I suspect they fixed whatever was causing the issue with the old pumps so the 2018 are not in the extended warranty.
  3. Disable auto stop

    Out of stock
  4. Well one thing is they have a the old model carried over selling it with the new 2019 I would not be surprised if those carryover trucks are out selling the new body. But they will most likely not let us know just call them all 2019 trucks. I just spent a $100 CND to fill up this morning. Gas here is on track to double in just a couple of months. I know it's going up in the US to so that is cooling people to trucks. Ford just canceled the third shift at the Windsor engine plant which build their F150 V8's. So suspect people are going with the EchoBoost over the V8 as panic sets in. lol
  5. Many people didn't like how hard the K2 seats were. I suspect they put softer foam in the new trucks and it may be giving more and now you feel the internal parts as it compresses. Just a theory
  6. Weight Distribution Hitch for Trail Boss

    Check the manufacture of your hitch. Allot of the time you can buy just a new shank that has more adjustment IE more adjusting holes and longer. I had to this once when I switched vehicles. Still cost a few dollars but was way cheaper then then replacing the entire unit.
  7. Try 1000 to 900 in Canada a month. The prices will go down once now one is buying them anymore. I traded a good 2016 for a 2018 just to avoid this new truck the auto on off and the price. This boy is out of the marker for a good while this time.
  8. Anything you hate about your truck?

    My problem is with GM not letting me order what I want and not what I want. Always make you up buy for options like Sunroofs and engine choice then force you to pay for stuff you never wanted. They do this across the board on everything they sell and it sucks. Imagine having a nice LT crew cab but you can get a FREAKING SUNROOF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with a 6.2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Check for anything that you disconnected and make sure noting else came apart or was cut when you braced the engine and lifted it to get the mount in. that being said the engine may have also been like that but you are feeling it now that the mount is new and stiff again.
  10. I'll say this though, put the current 5.3 into a 90's Camaro/Firebird and you will feel the difference ha ha. +200hp mod lol This engine is stellar when the vehicle is 2000 or more pounds lighter lol
  11. OEM Brake Controller

    Nope the OEM brake controllers actually work with the stability control system and will manage all of those setting automatically. It will even work to help reduce sway.
  12. Idiot scratch

    A badly light "no lights at all" storm drain protruding 3 feet out into the road and of course the road jogged over at the same point. The locals called us lucky it usually flips cars and trucks. It has evne tok out Semi's as well. So I didn't feel bad that I hit it, it has a history of killing things.
  13. I got little ride in two weeks ago.... I picked up a 2005 Vulcan 1600 Modded last September it only has 6000 miles and was taken out of the Crate in 2015 and imported to Canada. It's a 2005 but it's like new.
  14. Idiot scratch

    It could have been worse. cost me $4K all said in done. Repairs to get home From Kentucky to Canada then two rims and tires. Front Back.
  15. Weight Distribution hitch or not?

    Travel Trailers are big Wind Sales do yourself a favor and use the WDH hitch with sway control as well. I have personally seen people not running one loose control and flip the truck and trailer. It's horrifying when it's your friends in the vehicle. Truck out front had one I had one out back. All three were all hit by the same side wind. Ruined the camping trip for everyone. You may only need it that one time but is your truck Family Friends worth it. I say yes.
