  1. This will seem weird, but check the pressure on your AC system via the low side port. If it is overcharged the truck fans will run high speed because it thinks the AC system is overheated. Happened to me after I recharged my AC and added too much which raised the pressure above the safe level. Soon as pressure normalized, fans went back to normal.
  2. Falken Wildpeak AT3W, I've got 50k+ on my set and still best AT tire I've owned
  3. Falken Wildpeak AT3W, snow rated all terrain tire with mileage warranty. 50k+ on the set I have now and still excellent traction on road, in the rain, and off road.
  4. Falken Wildpeak AT3W, I've got 50k on mine and still the best tire I've had when driving on the road in heavy rain. Great off road and in the snow. Can't compare to a mud tire in deep mud, but still easily gets the job done off road.
  5. In agreement with the other guys, Check alternator and battery connections.
  6. Are you looking for the plastic push pins? Fender Liner Retainer Push-Type Clip A20991 For Chevrolet For GM 11589292 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01H6HP8PG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_VncIDbDABM43A https://www.dormanproducts.com/gsearch.aspx?type=keyword&origin=keyword&q=body-fasteners-interior&make=Chevrolet
  7. The heavier the tire, the less MPG you'll get and the more strain that will be on the drivetrain. The manufacturer of the lift should have a recommended tire size and/or max tire size to run with the lift.
  8. That is bizarre. Have you checked your alternator and battery with a multimeter? Is the voltage on the dash showing around or very close to 14? My alternator was showing symptoms of failure so I replaced the stock 150A with a new 170A. Piece of cake to do at home, took maybe 20 minutes. Why I mention this is because my voltage was reading low on the dash (around 11 volts I'd guess) and lights inside were flickering under any sort of electrical load. With cruise control on, when I would hit the turn signal then cruise control would shut off as well as everything else for a half-second. Just really strange, but I determined it to be the fault of voltage being low and thus confirmed the alternator was on it's way out.
  9. Negative first. Just let Autozone or your favorite store do it for free. When you buy a battery they will install it.
  10. Amsoil is the best engine oil out there. If you have a leased vehicle or some POS vehicle you could care less about, then just use Walmart oil or whatever is cheapest. I plan on keeping my truck for a long time and Amsoil will help to achieve that. I use Amsoil in my truck bumper to bumper. Transmission, front and rear differentials, transfer case, and brake fluid. There are several other high quality engine oils out there but Amsoil is the best. Then we talk about oil filters, magnetic plugs for the oil pan, and those magnetic wraps for the oil filters. Can take tons of steps to keep the engine clean. My point is, Amsoil is the best engine oil even though it's not the ideal option for all drivers.
  11. Just go with Amsoil so you don't have to worry about your engine blowing up
  12. 81k on a 2014, pads and rotors still have plenty of life. Did a brake fluid flush around 70k and I had to tighten up the parking brake once. It's the ferro-nitric compounds that allow the brakes to last for a long time.
