  1. 2018 2500HD Headlights

    I know my truck is a bit older as a 2015 but I used this kit to go bi-xenon hid. I now have hid low beams with proper cutoff. The high beams are standard lower halogen but the hids pull off the shield and give a nasty beam that is amazingly bright. I also installed the morimoto Xb led fogs. http://www.fastheadlights.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=fxr_chevy_retrofit-kit_hylux Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  2. Different application but I replaced the dual filament signals on my dual sport some time ago with some 2 wire leds. I used a pair of these to allow both the running light and turn signal to work. https://www.amazon.com/Custom-LED-Blinker-Genie-Converts/dp/B00KH18U7W I don't remember them changing the brightness of the diodes at all.

  3. upgrade 2017

    Gm gives our 2500hd 6.0 a 14k tow rating. We tow a 5th wheel that weighs right about 12.5k loaded. Over Donner or echo we can hold 45-55 at 5k rpm or so. She just sings at that rpm and the first half of the truck looks like it has orange neon under glow at night as the manifolds and cat set all the way to the y pipe glow brightly.

  4. I use the adhesive epoxy sealed reed switches like what you would have for a home alarm system to drive a relay. No open moving parts to corrode like the pin switches used to. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  5. If memory serves the cost of yearly registration goes up significantly with a 1 ton over 3/4 ton in our great state of Kalifornia. My 15 3/4 ton was $700 last year. I understand there will be a healthy increase again this year. My 73 3/4 ton 2wd was close to $300. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    Our 5th wheel has 2400lbs of pin weight. All it does is knock the truck level. Never been near the bump stops and still has that nice ride. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  8. Hell, we set it at 65-70 with the tow/haul on and let it go. On the flat it sits at 2k rpm or so. I have no idea what gear it is in. If it will tow in 6th it is doing it. It never kicks down on the flat or mild. It just rolls along without much care. If it gets really steep and windy we are pretty slow and it will make the first 6 feet of the exhaust glow pretty brightly. Dealer and other drivers say that this is normal and the trans has never been close to 200. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  9. We tow a forest river sierra 343rsok. It was sold to us as 10,800 dry but the door sticker shows 11,495 dry and a gvwr of 15,500. With our crap in it there is some weight but I have not ran into a place we could not go. Truck is a crew short 2500hd 4x4 Ltz z71 with a 6.0l. Sometimes a bit more power would be nice. The trans and engine have never gone more than 20 degrees over what they run empty. We get between 7 and 8 mpg towing though. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  10. 5th Wheel Guru's

    I have not yet had to slide my hitch back to keep it away from the cab. I do however have a profiled nose on the 5th wheel which helps a lot. I can not get closer than about 6" going forward full lock. In reverse, in a bind, on a compound angle I probably could. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  11. One of the worst was highway 17 into Santa Cruz. I am not saying it does not feel it on the long steep ones but it is always good for it. Even had to start in the of a long one after having to pull over for a wicked leg cramp. It does light up the manifolds and first 3 feet of pipe like orange neon under glow.

  12. Our trailer weighs 10,8k dry. She runs all day long with plenty of speed. Will even hold the cruise control up Hill. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  13. The lights included with my amp kit get spliced onto the step motor harness. They are controlled by the amp step brain that interfaces with the obd2 diagnostic port. It receives data from the truck to be able to tell which door is open and which step to deploy. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk
  14. I 8dle it down for sure after a hard pull. Mine lights up from the manifolds through and past the first set of cats. And down past the firewall before it starts to lose its glow. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
  15. When we pull home I will try to put the temp gun on it. I don't think I will be able to get a picture as we will be going back in the daylight. I don't mind it if this is a normal thing. I was just surprised as it looked like I had a neon lighting kit under the truck shining up off the road bed. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
