AA and CC is ok but it doesn't project route guidance to the HUD like the factory nav does. In my opinion route guidance displayed in the HUD is a very nice feature, especially when you are on busy highways towing a large trailer. No factory nav is a deal breaker for me.
jd64 replied to Bikemobile's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)i agree , mine was a 04 and absolutely trouble free for 125k miles. in fact it was the longest i ever kept a truck. 11 years. i was out of touch with the truck market in that time and when i decided to order a 15 i was very disappointed that there was not a big block on the order list. i always bought 454's, and then the 8.1 . everybody whines about the 8.1 mpg but i dont buy a 4wd 2500 with he biggest gas motor i can buy to worry about gas mileage. i love my 20 with the gas motor and will replace it this fall or next spring with another 6.6 gas. a 8 or 10 speed trans would be nice though.
jd64 replied to Bikemobile's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)very much agree also, along with the whole upgraded truck over past generations, but my 04 with the 8.1/Allison was also a great combination just a little rougher at the pump.
I have the GM in channel design which i believe are made by EGR. the fella at the parts department said all the guys there have them on their trucks and told me when i put them on try and do it when it is warmer and to leave the windows up for 3 days, if they cause the window to retract, open the window and push outward on the deflector. i had to do that a few times and they seem to be ok but to be honest i would rather have the outside mount but the in channel design is much better looking when installed. i originally ordered the GM outside mounted design but didn't like the way they were opened on the front side near the mirror
My 2020 2500 built 8/19 is also leaking. Just noticed it over the weekend. Small drips in the upper corners of each side, then dripping on the top corners of the back seats, also has stained the corners of the headliner.
i also think the seats are very acceptable, they are firm but seem to be just fine.i just did a 550 mile trip towing the trailer this past weekend and there were no issues in comfort at all but everybody is different. appearance to me is also fine, i prefer the functional look of the GM interiors compared to the dodges myself. just too much going on in the dodges interior for my liking. a quick note on the 6 speed, it seems to do the job just fine. no complaints. so far.... at 5500 miles the truck has been better than i could hope for.
Mine started doing the same exact thing tonite , only does it in park on the first shift, once in drive or reverse there is no noise when the brake pedal is applied. just turned over 3500 miles on the truck and it has been completely quiet until now. it does sound exactly like a shift interlock solenoid. i haven't had a chance to check it out yet. seems like it is coming from the steering column area.
New 6.6, steering ,suspension,turning radius, the entire truck, is much better. the technology is great. i owned a 15 and a 18 HD gas. no comparison at all. much quieter and smoother ride. very responsive in the handling. gas engine does well with the trailer.
they can be installed at any tire shop or local shop that does tire work. you can bring them the wheels and tires off of your trailer and have the tpms monitors installed and then you can learn them to the truck at home when you reinstall them on the trailer, you can buy the relearn tool online or use the air up method that is explained when you set up the truck. either way works fine. or i suppose you can bring the truck and trailer to the tire shop and let them do the entire job.
the only way they will be included with the truck is if they were ordered with the truck. they are a separate $50 option when new. if they aren't on the window sticker they were'n't ordered with it. you will have to buy them or try and talk the dealership into providing them. the xtra cameras and trailer tpms sensors are a confusing issue, i think the pricing for the options/truck should be adjusted to include them when the correct options are ordered. i have noticed that alot of early built trucks didn't have the tpms monitors on the window stickers, most of the ones that did had the fifth wheel package ordered. i wonder if there was confusion from the fellas at the dealerships that built the initial orders and they may not have realized they needed to check the box for them, i would bet the longer these trucks are out you may see many more coming with them. like most options, they surely are cheaper with the truck then buying them later.
