I was PO’ed when I had to change drivers side turn signal bulbs. Little did I know that it was a cakewalk compared to the right side bulbs. Removing air cleaner box and reaching through that hole to change the bulbs is a real peach. Just disgusting.
I always do wires because I figure, what the heck, its every 100k miles. Plus, I end up twisting the snot out of them to get them off. These are not hard plugs to change. Dont mess with the gap on the iridium plugs, regardless of what any manual says. Leave them be. At least if you use OEM plugs you know youre in good shape.
Just changed mine out at 108k miles. They didn't look too bad. I replaced them with OEM. OEM wires also. Ill tell you one thing, I’m glad I did passenger side first. Drivers was a breeze after that. Regardless, none of it holds a candle to my moms 07 Highlander with the transverse V6. That thing was a nightmare.
CapitalTruck replied to No F-bdy Bs's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500I didn't even know it was an option. Is that the BTN package on the factory equipment list? Looking through ACDelco catalog is 540-160 your correct part number?
I had an 04 4.8 2wd Ext Cab 4L60E with 3.73. It had a tow capacity of 7100. I towed a 6500 pound boat from Delaware to Corpus Christi Texas. It was third gear pretty much the whole way. Those Tennessee mountains were a 2nd gear hazard flasher operation. It made the trip with no problem (I had added an auto trans cooler before the trip). However, I would recommend a greater margin of safety than what you're mentioning. With the 3.73 you'd probably be okay, but with that 3.42, forget it. I have a 13 with 4wd ext cab 4.8, it is listed at 5500. I have come close to that and I sure wouldn't want to do it for long term.
CapitalTruck replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI had high hopes for a retro Bronco like redesign. Instead I got a disappointment.
CapitalTruck replied to Appleboy84's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Zero issues with these trucks. I’ve done my 2013 with no problems. Did it the same way I did it in a 63 Impala I used to have.
