  1. It’s a lot different. But you’ll be fine. Watch temps and get a feel for your rig. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I would drive it how it is and see how you do. You don’t really need to go from 3.73 to 4.10 just for what your pulling. If you swap gears, you’ll have to get a tuner to adjust speedo because it will be off. I’d try it out and see if you feel you need more lower end or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. A little more in low end. I have a 2011 2500hd with 6.0 and 6L90, 3.73 and 37s. I tow 22ft flat bed with side by sides or jeep or cars or what not on it. Tows fine. Now with the 37s it’s a dog. When I swap to 4.88 it will be a lot better. I would suggest getting some type of gauge for trans temps unless the HD already has one. Not sure if yours does or not.

  4. A 1500 will pull a vehicle and open car trailer with no issues. Now when you go to enclosed, larger trailer, bigger cars and things of that nature. Then you start getting into grounds of needing a bigger rig. But for what you are wanting to do, your truck will do just fine. I know it’s a total different animal, but my old f150 pulling buddies jeep jku on flatbad. Has some weight to it trailer was rather light as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The 1500hd has 3/4 Ton running gear, but with a smaller motor correct? You’ll be fine pulling it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You will be fine pulling it. I used to use a 1500 to tow a jeep and trailer and what not around. It should be fine. If you have brakes on the trailer, get a trailer brake controller. It will make a world of difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Could be coil packs. If you have a flashing check engine light. It should store a code and tell you what cyl is misfiring. Start the truck and run it. Shut if off, pull 1 coil pack so it kills the cyl. Start the truck again. See how it runs. Plug coil pack back in, move to the next. Keep doing it till you find the one that makes no change. Then swap it to another cyl to confirm it’s not functioning properly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I would start with bleeding the brakes. See if air is in the system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Delete and tune? That’s the way to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Glock 27 zev trigger spring kit and extra mag with +1 pinky extensions. And mp sport 2 with eotech and foregrip in the back seat with spartan arms level 3+ panels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m sorry to hear that. I don’t know as I have never seen the duramax cluster. I know the 15 and up ones do. Cycle through the info stuff on the cluster and see if it pops up. I think the tanks are only about 5 gallons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Is there def fluid in the tank? If the dpf system is bad, time to straight pipe and delete it with a tune. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just replace and start truck. Just like you would with spark plugs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You can either purchase one that folds. Which cost an arm and a leg. Or what I was going to do with the one we had, is I was going to cut the solid bars that hold it up. And weld hinges to them. But I never got around to doing it. For speakers, 6 1/2 in front and 4x6 in rear. At least that’s what it was for my ex cab. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yes they will fit. 2011 plus is different Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Yea as far as belts. Your ac compressor has its own independent belt. Do the belts appear to be cracked? I would replace belts and inspect pulleys when the belts are off Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. 4500 and 6.0? Sounds like a bullet proof combination to me. 6.0 is a great power plant. My assumption on the 4 low ordeal would be the actuator for the transfercase. Long box with 4 door is telling me is possibly work truck model? I have a 2011 ex cab with 6.0 and it’s a good motor. No issues, plenty of power. It’s a work horse that’s for sure.

  18. Warm it up. And make a trip down the highway. Beat on it and get it nice and hot try to burn some of the crap out of it that may have built up over time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Believe you can get a tuner to turn off the afm. I know it can me done mechanically with new rockers and lifters I believe. Not to sure. As I have a 2500hd with 6.0 that doesn’t have it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. 2012 has a different lug pattern than 2010 and older. They never came with a 16 I don’t believe. So I highly doubt they will clear the brakes. 17 is the smallest I know that came on 2500s. I would find another set of cheap 17s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Probably pitman arm, tires could cause a vibration too. How did the road force? Even if they balance good, they could still have a bad road force measurement and cause a rough ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. There you go. Can figure out wiring for that and wire it into that some how. Those should be a toggle type Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. True. I would do a toggle switch. Or find a factory switch for your truck, for an option that your truck doesn’t have. Say like a sunroof. Get a bezel for a sunroof truck, and wire it to that switch. Looks factory and wouldn’t think anything of it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Yeah can do that. To where have to hold button and crank at same time. Remember, you don’t have 2 right arms. So put it somewhere that you can do both. Maybe make a small bracket and mount it under the driver seat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. For temp use it will be fine. Nice thing about newer chevy is the onstar, can track and shut the car down. I would hide said switch away from driver area. Maybe behind back seat or somewhere that you would never think to look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
