  1. Its not people buying trucks for fuel economy, its EPA fuel regulations they have to meet.  If they can gain 1 mpg better with them, thats all they need.


    As for Ford shopping, they have the same shutters as GM, and also have issues.  Let the service dept figure it out, its not normal operation.

  2. Theres a reason the 2500 / 3500 frames are taller - so the motor / Allison can fit.  All previous gen 1500 diesel swaps typically had a body lift in them for the extra space.  But aside from height, the engine bay is the same size from 1500 thru 2500.


    And yes - much beefier suspension.  Frame would hold it with some mount modifications.

  3. Power tow mirrors on a truck that has regular power mirrors is one thing. Adding a feature like power fold is a different animal. I’ve looked at the connectors and pinouts, the driver and passenger switches need to be switched out, along with the door harness. Then obviously the mirrors. I have not seen any signal wires on the cab side of the connector so it may communicate thru Lan. If that’s the case, I don’t have a clue if programming would be needed, and if it does, good luck finding a dealer to do it because it’s not just checking a box for the option.

  4. Or it’s called being an enthusiast. Who cares. It may look stupid to many, but if he wants them, let him have it. You need to pull up a 2020hd vin, call the dealer with it and order the 3 lights and wiring harness that goes down the a pillar to the junction box in the kickpanel just like the other body styles.

  5. The front camera plugs into a module behind the rear seat on vehicles equipped that way from the factory. I couldn’t tell you if your truck has that module or not, but it’s going to be pricey for parts. The other hard part will be finding a dealer who is capable of programming. It’s not a simple checkbox to add a camera. They would have to trick the truck into thinking it was a LTZ or HC with the option

  6. Yeah well the only option for you is the rear view camera which is discussed on another thread. Myself and another have done this add, it’s pricey but worth it. You also may be waiting for parts for a little bit.

    Your onstar is on the overhead console, not the mirror anymore.

  7. I agree with the above post 100%. I get that you’re having issues and there’s no excuse for some of them, but the 500 miles and it being dirty, it sounds like you didn’t do your homework before signing. My truck had 400 miles on it, sold as new, it was used at a couple promo events last year hence the miles. But never titled so it can be sold as new. As for the dirt, trucks do get dirty sitting on the lot as it sounds yours was for a while. You could have easily sent it back to make ready and had them do a full detail.

    Hope you get the other issues addressed.
