  1. So far, so good. Still no more battery issues. I am seeing about 50/50 for 12v vs 14v while driving. Maybe its been at 12 on the gauge for a while and I never paid that much attention than I am now since I'm paranoid. Lol. Still no slow cranks, so the battery is doing okay.
  2. Mud flaps

    My 07 had rust behind the flaps where the salt and moisture collected between the flap and the paint. I installed some Husky flaps on my truck now and they came with some PPF between the flap and paint, so time will tell.
  3. Can't go wrong with the SS wheels. I loved the clean look.
  4. Have you just replaced the cables and been fine, or did you have to replace the battery at the same time? Negative cable https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-22846471-Original-Equipment-Negative/dp/B00PM32Q02 Did you always replace both, or just the negative? Thanks again!
  5. Oem cables the way to go Justin? Any link to the TSB? I can’t seem to find it. Also, if it was just a bad cable, why would the battery drain completely? I would think it just wouldn’t start. Load tester on the battery said it was fine.
  6. That’s kind of what I was thinking. Drove it to work and it charged at 14v. Drove it to my dads and it wouldn’t raise above 12. Battery was at 12.8 when I turned it off. Drove it home after my dads and it was on 14 again. I know about the voltage fluctuation, but it’s never down in the 12’s while running and driving. Always 13-15v.
  7. It was at 12.2 this morning. Started it up and drove it to work. Fired right up when I went to leave. Was charging at 14v constantly the whole drive, so it all seems normal. Checked voltage when I got home and it was back to 13.2 once I turned it off at around 4pm. Back to 12.88 after sitting for 3 hrs. I'll report some more as time goes on.
  8. Broken Windshield

    Replace it. Check with your insurance. I have a zero deductible and didn’t have to pay anything to have it replaced with an aftermarket one. You’ll have to pay the difference out of pocket if you request OEM glass.
  9. It's weird that it tested okay, just low, and the alternator voltage regulator failed, but the capacitor passed.. Hoping it'll be the battery and not the alternator. Time will tell. I got 10 yrs on my old truck with the OEM Delco battery. Tons of aftermarket stuff added too.
  10. The real question is, how many times had he had his mirrors off? 😂
  11. I have never had any issue with charging ever with my truck. Drove home last night with the air on and parked it in the garage as usual. Nothing left on. I went out first thing and it was completely dead. It would only click once when trying to turn over. I had my wife put the battery tender on it since I took the bike to work instead. Came home and it started right up, so I took it to Autozone to have th electrical system checked. Battery was put under a load and tested okay, but needs charged as it was only at 69% capacity. Tested the alternator and the capacitors passed, but the voltage regulator failed. I was told the alternator was bad, so I just drove it home since a new one is $270 there. I used my voltmeter and it rear 12.3 off and then jumped to 13 when running. Revved up a little and it was at 14. Completely normal. Very weird. The only thing I did differently was that I left the AC on the entire way home and turned off the truck while it was at full blast. Maybe something electrical stuck open and kept everything energized? I don't know. I will check in the am and see how my voltage is. I'm hoping it was just a fluke, but I've read a lot of threads about bad batteries, so I typed this one in case it ever happens to someone too. I'll report back tomorrow.
  12. Time to take the boards off and get them powdercoated gloss black to match!
  13. Summit racing by me has the GMC calipers without rotors for $1500 for a scratch and dent return.
  14. https://www.amazon.com/VXDAS-EL-50448-Pressure-Monitor-Activation/dp/B072BK693N/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1533077938&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=el50448&dpPl=1&dpID=411B3l6HLZL&ref=plSrch Sorry it took so long. I paid just a tad less for mine because amazons prices always fluctuate.
  15. Just a cheapo one on amazon. It was like $15. I’ll have to see if I can find the link.
