  1. Tool-free headlight change. YES. Have you tried on a K2? It SUCKS! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  2. Remember the under-the-hood work light on a cord reel in the 88-98s? I could pull the cord out and hang the light from the big spring on the front underside of the hood. Really handy when you don't have anyone to hold a flashlight. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  3. 60k seems early, I've never had one croak that early, across several generations of GM trucks. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  4. Oh come on. That's like saying the Silverado will be a unibody and the Sierra will be body-on-frame. You know that's what they'll do if the Jimmy name comes back. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  5. Larger wheel with smaller sidewall tire will firm up the ride quite a bit. If that's what you were going for, you got it! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  6. If it is a bad alternator, at least those are easy to change out. I would NOT buy one at an auto parts store, however. I would buy another AC Delco/GM alternator. I've been bit by the reman/Chinese parts too many times to bother with anything but OEM. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  7. They can bench-test an alternator at Autozone/Advance Auto/Discount Auto. Take the alternator off, take it to the store, they can find out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  8. It's brand new, never had a tire on it yet. 20" 2014-2018 model, polished aluminum. I was planning to use it as a spare, just like you. My truck now has 18s on it, so no use for it anymore. It's dark out now and I'm not gonna dig it out. But I will when it's light out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  9. I have one. I'm in Florida though. 120 + shipping, it's yours. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  10. Gotta be careful with probing the small trailer light receptacle. If you short them to ground, you'll burn a fuse. I've never understood people doing that. Plug the trailer in and check it that way. You have to check the trailer's lights anyways. 2 birds with 1 stone. Uhaul did that to me 2 weeks after I bought my new truck. Their insurance company paid me $400 for that little f-up shoving a damn probe in there. Check your fuse block. I believe that your fuses for your lights are under the hood, driver's side.

  11. My post got deleted, I wonder why. You really expect 28-30 mpg from a duramax 2500? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  12. In simple terms, unless you install a properly set up pre-amp on the antenna, a shorter one is going to be worse reception-wise. People do still buy shortys, but if you do, be prepared for what that brings. You'll be out of range a lot sooner. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  13. FM/AM antenna length has not changed much if at all in decades, because it is tuned to be 1/4 wavelength across much of the FM band. That's why AM stations sound more staticy if you're not nearby, it's more sensitive to the antenna length reduction because most users listen to FM now. If the T1 does have a shorter antenna, it's either going to be worse reception of FM or they've got a preamplifier to increase the gain to make up for the shorter length. Antenna science is what it is, my friend. My K2 antenna is the same length as all the other non-amplified radio setups I've had. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
  14. Why? Most K2s will receive HD Radio as they are. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J727A using Tapatalk
