miker2702 started following Replacing stamped steel UCA, need leveling kit advice, Chirping? noise when accelerating, Coming back. Maybe! I have a few questions and and 6 others
i would drive it a few hundred miles at various speeds on highway to make sure no vibrations. gm will tell you the same its normal......I would drive every one on the lot to be sure I got a smooth one.... 2500hd I traded was smoother than the 1500.....except when you hit a bump....my son has 30k saved for a new truck im telling him look elsewhere.....if gm will not stand behind what they sell.
Ok. With your tire wheel set up would you go up a old logging road maybe gravel maybe not two or three miles into the woods to a tree stand ? Would you head to the wood line going to cut fire wood ? Why would I want to head to a remote boat ramp in North Carolina pulling my 50k bass boat throwing mud and rocks all over it ? Would you hook up a trailer to the rock quarry for a couple tons of gravel maybe going a mile on a gravel road to get loaded. In my area when it snows they may cover some area's in gravel hows the body panels going to look after back and for for a few days ? What does the opposite sex have to do with my truck. Odd statement. I'm thinking work mainly in my truck your wanting to impress the opposite sex ? Rt
Gee. Check out stryker suspension s. Local guy builds some amazing rides. Brand new trucks cuts all suspension out and adds some amazing new set ups. Stop and talk to him he shows me around I'm floored by the custom work. I ask who buys these and most are out of town guys etc. I've seen several go out on trailer s. Back to point you just don't see that type set up in my area...the super wide low profile look just not that popular. Is it growing some what maybe. Most off road guys don't run the low profile set up. Not talking new trucks at royal blue but beat up trucks made for off road work don't have that look....
i had new 2016 hd2500. i decided to go back to the 1500 when they offered me much more than i gave for the 2500. the 1500 is smooth riding. not counting the vibration near 70 not counting the afm and terrible shifting transmission. other than those great truck............ had to do over would have kept the 2500. it shifted and acted like a truck. i tow near 6000 lbs weekly yes half ton does ok. 10-20 miles a day 2500 every time. i cringe every time i pass a 2500.
just came from a 2016 2500hd 6.0 liter 4.10 gear to a 2017 1500 wit 3.42 gears. big mistake I cant stand the afm but its more than that. the size the height and the difference in pulling is what I miss. no comparison. mpg may 3-4 difference around town. 1500 in a hurry to get in high gear at all times 2500 much better truck in my opinion.
