  1. Yes, the 5 speed Alison was used with the 8.1 big block. I believe the alison sucked away some of the 8.1s power. Great combo tho. Last forever!
  2. Been using the Nitto Exo Grappler. They're studdable. Haven't applied studs yet.. Average winter here. A few 4-6" snows and lots of ICE! These tires are incredible in all conditions. Plus they're quiet and wear great.
  3. yep, real world towing and driving the 6.0 is hard to beat. after 50,000 miles I still love mine.. Not one issue. My last two fords I couldn't go a few hundred miles with out an issue... " Triton years"
  4. I was in the 230-250 range with a heavy wet 16" snow a few years back.. The 6.0 and the tranny can handle this all day long. No issues.. Enjoy the truck and plow!
  5. Has anyone Tried the Putco Silver lux?http://www.putco.com/products.cfm?action=ProductView&Product=605C7E19-E1DB-1D81-E03D-E8BC3DE26C29&Category=265206B2-AA7D-3526-3FBE-9867DB134C5F&bulbtypeid=55C7310C-22D5-42EA-A309-3B5C1F53E52B
  6. Anyone have any experience with these bulbs? http://www.putco.com/products.cfm?action=ProductView&Product=605C7E19-E1DB-1D81-E03D-E8BC3DE26C29&Category=265206B2-AA7D-3526-3FBE-9867DB134C5F&bulbtypeid=55C7310C-22D5-42EA-A309-3B5C1F53E52B Thinking about upgrading. Can't stand the stock lights on these HD's
  7. Both the 6.2 and 6.0 are great engines. I went with the 6.0 for the proven track record. My '15 6.0 pulls trailers and plows snow most of it's life.. I was stock for 37,000 miles Put a CZIPAR custom tune on it. I'm now at 49,000. No issues. The truck responds so much better. Perfect shifts. No down shifts on small grades. Down shifts perfectly when needed. The 6.0 is a work horse and with a mild tune it's unstoppable. My mileage stayed the same. I average around 8-10mpgs around town with loads. If you live in the midwest I can get you squared away with CZIPAR 380$ for a custom tune is a steal. I very rarely drive my 05 LLY Dmax anymore.
  8. Custom tune really helps out these 6.0s. Tuned mine back in July. 5,000 miles of smiles and power! no issues!
  9. Mine does it too... 45k miles bars turned up... Haven't found the culprit yet.. Been doing it for 10k miles
  10. Programmer won't do much.. Do a custom tune. Try to find a good local tuner. These 6.0s drive so much better with a mild tune. The towing is excellent as well.
  11. I have a 2015 6.0 2500hd.. I went with a custom tune from CZIPAR Performance from Dubuque, IA 563-599-8492. Night and day difference in performance on the truck.. Cleaner, crisper shifting. The mileage stayed the same. But much more usable power! Stay a way from the "box tunes" - in store tunes. Find a reputable custom tuner in your area.
  12. I came from the Hankook Dynapro AT'm. The Hankook was great.. lasted 42,400 miles with heavy towing and plowing each day. So far the EXO Grapplers are wonderful. Very quiet! You can hear the lugs working at low speeds 5-15mph then its basically silent. Excellent wet/ rain traction. Very pleased so far. Now if I can get 40,000miles out of them:)
  13. Nitto EXO Grappler experience?

    Finished product:)
