  1. Took my 16 1500 in last year because of the noises and they drove it around and tore it apart and said everything was fine. Some are just noisier than others. Makes zero sense to me.
  2. I still hate the dipstick on my 2016 1500. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Better MPG on 93?

    I’ve noticed this. Others have noticed it too. Some say it’s an anomaly because you actively try to get better mileage when you are paying attention to it. However, I found I had better engine response and mpg. The cost was not offset though. You figure I’m paying 1.90 a gallon for 89. Or 2.50!!!!!! for 93? I’d need to be adding a ton of mpg to offset the cost. Instead I saw 1-2 mpg difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I had my passenger side fog light replaced under warranty last year. I had 1500 miles left. At about 1550 mile later the driver side started to fog up. I’ve yet to give enough to do anything about it. Very annoying though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Crazy awesome build!! Would love to be out there whipping around in a rig like that!
  6. After driving both and owning a 5.3 there is zero chance a 5.3 will run with the new 3.5s lol. Put it in sport mode with that ten speed and the 5.3 is not gonna keep up.
  7. T1XX Cost cutting

    A non adjustable seat belt is a deal breaker on any car that I own. If my wife and myself will both drive a vehicle it needs to be adjustable. She’s 5’ and I’m 6’1”. Hopefully if the belts are fixed they have a remedy for this issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yes a very good looking truck. I like the lift a lot, I figured with 6” it would look higher than that. But this looks good!
  9. You sound stoopid. Not in this post. Just the rest of them. There are plenty of vehicles that benefit from “just a tune” Hell, my old Evo could bump up 30+ with just exhaust and tune. CAI was for sound effects only. And that’s 30+ on a dyno. From a car that dyno’d baseline like 250. That’s a huge difference amigo. A tune will without a doubt change a vehicle. There are snake oil tuners out there without a doubt. But a proper tune does a vehicle some good
  10. Had mine looked at under warranty at the dealership for a loud noise almost whining/grinding. Totally normal apparently. Keep an eye on it and if it gets worse then get it checked out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Listen up old men, both of your balls are hanging to your knees. We respect all the places you’ve been and the knowledge you both posses. Now shut up and get along little donkey. If the 4.3 works for you man then keep at it. A friend of mine downgraded from the 5.3 and has no issues whatsoever. And I use downgraded lightly. He loves the increased mpg he’s getting. The truck does everything he needs it to. If you outgrow your truck then move on without compromising your safety and doing more than what your truck can safely do.
  12. Gotta make sure you really strap your tranny’s down before driving like crazy. Don’t want anyone calling the cops on random tranny’s laying on the road. I’ll be doing something similar to this once my warranty is up. I like reading the positive reviews from such a simple fix! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m a stock wheel fan too. It reminds me of old school big trucks. A nice tire on a stock wheel with a mild lift is the way to go
  14. I have a crew with the 6.5’ bed. I didn’t want a short bed and I needed to be able to haul all the peoples. The truck is long and big but it’s exactly what I needed. There is a ton of room in the back. My brother has a double cab and no thank you. Not what I wanted with a newborn.
  15. You’ve never talked to anyone who owns an Evo then ;) Mitsubishi cars in general are Meh at best but the Evo is a whole different beast. It’s like comparing an impala to a zr1 corvette. All aluminum body panels. Turbocharged engine. All wheel drive. They can easily put down 400whp on a stock drivetrain. Not bad from a 4cyl with barely any work to it. Put a little bit of money into it and you can run 600+ pretty easily. Mine was as tame as can be and still had more done to it than most people on this site will do to their truck. Intake, turbo back exhaust, 3 port, ebc, custom tune, and new suspension. And that was very mild compared to what most people do with those cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
