  1. Option "B" - unplug sensors
  2. My 2015 seems fine after 3 Ohio winters. Never thought about flipping it.
  3. dumb question

    X3. I'm 155# wet and I wouldn't stand on it. Probably knock the whole damn bumper off! Get a cheap stool for checking fluids and keeping her pretty!
  4. I'll second the torsion turn. I went like 5 turns, pushed front end up 3/4". It was just enough to lift it a smidgen, but still have some rake. Looks great when towing, too.
  5. New model Tailgate

    Not likely. Bed rail height and stuff is different I believe.
  6. Yes - pictures. I've been looking and plan to slap a set of these (probably 275's) on my 2500 this fall! Besides - love seeing pics of folks' trucks
  7. Thanks for all the info. I personally don't think the trucks look "finished" with the full removal. I haven't had any issues, but have thought about trimming mine.
  8. Mirror question

    I think diesel has an outside air sensor on the mirror. Not sure if a plug-play option is out there for it.
  9. Ha. Now I'm 2X as jealous - I wanted a rubber floor (bought used - at least WeatherTech's came with it :))
  10. Wow. Marginal? You feeling the butt-hurt because you realized just how much less a gasser is? To make a statement about my income bracket because I didn't buy a diesel says alot about your character, and just how "not" marginal the cost difference is.
  11. I was surprised when the stealership mentioned changing trans fluid at 45,000 miles. I always have done around 60,000 miles. I went ahead with it just because the 100k drivetrain warranty. I didn't "upgrade" fluid - just the GM stuff. It was probably not necessary, but I do tow and know I'm good for a while.
  12. True dat. I have to throw in "I like the feeling of the extra $5k in my pocket" Sorry lol - all meant in good spirit!
  13. As a fellow RVer who went from the 5.3L to the 6.0L, it's a world of difference in stability and low end power. If your TT only has a GVWR of 7000# though, the 5.3L 1500 should more than handle it. My Sierra 1500(3.42 rear end) did well with our 34' TT (9600# GVWR - 8300# actual loaded weight). The suspension was why I upgraded to a 2500. The 1500 is just too soft for my size trailer and truck was pushed around more than I cared for. I didn't want a diesel. Nothing that breaks on a diesel is less than a few thousand, and the added vehicle costs don't justify it (sure, mileage is better, but fuel cost offsets it). Many will disagree and say Diesel or bust, but real world towing (Fancy Gap, WV Mountains) with my rig shows the 6.0L is a beast. An older design, but very reliable (and thirsty) beast. If you plan to upgrade your trailer to something larger, then a 2500 should be used. If you're going 40' 5th wheel, then definitely diesel 3500. If you keep current TT and go 2500 gasser, you WILL be doing 80 up the mountains. I pulled Fancy Gap (7 miles @ 7%) steady at 60mph with no issues. EDIT: Make sure your hitch is setup properly too. A good WD hitch (I use Equalizer). Hitch setup will make or break.
  14. You pretty satisfied with the fit/finish? They feel pretty good? I would love leather like the Katskinz, but for the price difference you have my attention.
  15. Good 'ole CARB. One small benefit of my location - I don't even have to do E-Check
