  1. I have a 14 with the same setup. I have towed 7,000 pounds with no issues. I usually tow a single axle 7x12 trailer with stuff from the home store. I just put it in tow haul and if I'm going down the highway I will put it in 5th gear to keep the rpms up.
  2. I have the chevy shake and I need to put new brakes on the rear, so I figured I would do it all at one time.
  3. I'm going to be swapping out my stock axles for the yukon replacements. This is my first time doing this and I'm wondering if I need to replace the axle bearings as well. The truck has 60,000 miles on it and I don't see why I would need to change the bearings since there haven't been any failures. I tried to look online and found no advice on this topic. Let me know!
  4. I had the same issue and fixed it with the blackbear transmission tune.
  5. I have had an elite engineering can installed since 23,000 miles and now have 55,000. No issues and I drain it once a month, which is probably too long, but sometimes I forget :).
  6. Napa just tested the battery and said it was good. The new negative battery cable just arrived, so I will be replacing it either today or tomorrow.
  7. It is a napa legends battery and I just got it 3 months ago. Going to try and get over there today and see what they say.
  8. I also checked the alternator and it is charging at 15.1 volts.
  9. Charged the battery and the truck fired up. I cleaned and re-tighten the battery cables on Monday. Everything was good till this morning when the truck wouldn't start again. Check the battery cables and re-tighten them again. Used a jump box to get the truck started. New cable will be here today. Going to go over to napa and have them test the battery.
  10. The only thing plugged in is a 12v phone charger and I don't have anything plugged into that.
  11. Called the local dealer and got the part number 84319729. They wanted 116 dollars, so I ordered one off ebay for 67 dollars and some change.
  12. Thanks @wforrest08 if I get to drive it tomorrow I will take it over to the napa where I bought the battery and have them test it. I might just buy a new negative cable to be on the safe side. Can anyone link a part number for an updated battery cable?
  13. I was thinking the new battery maybe bad. Can they test the battery while in the vehicle? I always just take it in, but I don't have an extra car anymore. I will double check the connections on the terminals tonight to verify, but I torque them to spec when I installed the battery.
  14. Going to start it up when i get home after leaving it on the trickle charger. The volt gauge was reading around 15 yesterday when I was driving it, but I can check it with my volt meter. Well when I first turned the truck on the lights came on, but after the third time turning the key the lights were off. I guess I will keep an eye on it to see whats going on.
