Been there. I tow a rock buggy on a custom trailer that's about 6k lbs plus about 1k lbs in the bed of the truck on trips. Got rid of my 2008 GMC 2500 6.0 thinking it was way more truck than I really needed and tried a 2013 ecoboost. While the ecoboost super crew was nice I found the temp gauge had a 30 degree dead spot programmed in and while towing up a hill the truck would hit 235+ and the gauge never moved. Oil pressure gauge is just a 7 psi switch. Had to repair something almost weekly. Only had that POS for 3 months and got back into a 2015 silverado 2500 6.0 truck and never regret it. I don't need to use the equalizer bars, I feel stable on the interstate at 85 mph, the gauges actually mean something (granted water temp runs about 210 on the dash but the scan tool indicates more like 195-200). I think the Fords are just dumbed down too much for the typical ford owner/driver...... Good choice on the replacement.
The tire shop should have the tool to do the learn. Its only like $20 or so on amazon. The older trucks you could do a procedure of putting into program more and inflate/deflate tires in certain order to relearn but the newer models require the tool.
I reused my factory sensors and installed them on new valve stems in my aftermarket wheels. Either keep track of which factory wheel was in what position with each sensor or you will need to do a relearn on the sensors so the truck know which wheel is where.
MNorby replied to SierraHD17's topic in 2015-2019 Silverado & Sierra HD ModsI haven't posted here but I enjoy following. Please keep up the updates. Thats my next thing is to figure out if I want to go with a Diablo/lew again or just get HP Tuners and start doing myself, and tweeking the rock crawler, and all my friends crawlers with LS engines.
I've got the bulbs with the little projectors in the end. They help but don't work near as well as the same projector style bulb I had in my 08. Not sure if it is the lens or because of the different sized bulb.
