I read through the post and Swathdiver is correct on the tire pressure I run a higher load range and higher pressure because I tow a fifth wheel trailed with it and have a heavy load in the truck. If your just normal day to day driving then pic the appropriate load tires and run lower pressure, I'm sure you will love them. I'm just to lazy to keep changing the pressure so I suffer in the rain! LOL.
I also run mine at 50psi but mine are load range D, I find mine are a little slippery in the rain but they are awesome in the snow! Something you don't have to worry about but they are really good in it. Plus they are snow rated tires so we get a discount on our insurance for having snow tires on.
No it does not activate trailer brakes only the truck. I went through the Smokey mountains last year and it controlled my rig just fine on the down hill runs and I pull a big trailer.
My pin weight is 1500# yes I'm over a little on cargo weight but good an all other numbers., it handles it ALOT better than my travel trailer which was lighter. The only complaint I have is the shocks are not the best, I get a lot of bouncing on rough roads. We just did a trip to the smokie mountains and it did great thought the mountains.
What is the cargo capacity numbers in your door sticker? these are none published and cant be found until you get your truck. I have a 2016 6.2 max tow and trying to decide whether to buy another half ton or go HD.
If I may ask what is the cargo capacity on your truck? I would like to order the same truck but can't get these numbers before I order. The last 2500 I looked at had a 1950Lbs limit witch is too close to my 1810Lbs limit in my half ton to trade up!
I just got home today from a 3700km trip through the smokie mountain's with my 16 NHT 6.2l and 29.5 Jayco eagle HT 5er with now problems at all. I'm over weight by 700 lbs but truck handles great and stops great. Got 10MPG(23L/100) in the mountain's with cruise set at 100km. I talked to fellow campers with diesels and they only get 11 MPG and spent 12K more! I found premium fuel and diesel were the same price in the US. would love a 2500 but since its my everyday truck can't give up the fuel mileage with the 6L and can't justify the price of the diesel.
Diver6 replied to tenminutes's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraFord tried that side exit for a few years and every truck had a screwed rear rim on that side, took the clear coat off the rim. wasn't long and they discontinued that exhaust.
My 16 Max tow 6.2 get 25 mpg average all the time but I’m in Canada and our speed limit is 60, my mileage takes a big hit if I run 70 to 75 in the US. I had a 15 5.3 and the new 6.2 get better mileage!!
on my 2016 the wax came off with a pressure washer bad and the dealer recoated the whole fram under warrenty, they said it was the worst one they ever saw and told me the new coating is alot better than factory. they had it for two days because of the special primer had to dry the recoat.
