Couple of questions about camper tops: 1. Anyone know if the camper top from an older 2012 Silverado 6.5’ will fit the newer trucks? Box dimensions identical? 2. Will the profile match up? Are the cab dimensions/height the same? Thanks!
My thoughts exactly. It might take a better mind than me to figure this out, but I’d love to see sales figures for their 6.2 versus GM’s 6.0 to chassis manufacturers. Every new UPS truck in my neighborhood, the plumber, landscapers are all powered by the 6.0. Not saying that the 6.2 is bad, but it seems like Ford has gone back to the old ways of the pushrod for that reliability and smaller footprint.
So the big blue oval turd has gone to a 7.3 liter big-block in their 2020 HD trucks with: an iron block, port fuel injection, and imagine this, push rods! Weren’t the Ford fanboys touting how great their OHC, aluminum blocks were a little while back?
I wouldn’t go running to tell the DMV this, but they’ve miscalculated your unladen weight (curb weight). GVWR 9500# - Payload 26xx# = 6900# curb weight. The Tire and Load Information stickers are calculated at the factory and based on the vehicle’s weight, which takes into account the configuration and options from the factory. I have a 2500HD, Double Cab 6.5’ bed, WT trim, 2WD and I’m at 6213# curb weight. Crew cab trucks in higher trim levels are at least a few hundred pounds heavier. All my friends still on Long Island were happy when they could register 1500’s as passenger cars & drive on the Belt and Northern State Pkwy, but they still don’t have HD trucks because they’re all over 6000 pounds.

Well, since they missed the mark on the number of gears in the Allison as well as there not being an 8-speed HD trans, I’d be a little weary about the rest of the information.
I wouldn’t have taken the 0% financing if that were the case, but when I bought my truck, it wasn’t one of those either “0% for 72” OR “$5000 off” deals. It was just an incentive where GM was offering $1000 off for financing through GM Financial. GMF also happened to be offering “as low as 0% financing for qualified buyers” which I qualified for. The dealership gets their bonuses for originating more loans, I get another $1000 off my truck and free financing. It was literally free money. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
I got that rate when I bought my truck. I only did it to get an extra $1000 off the truck for financing through GM Financial. An interest free loan is not too shabby. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
I have the pass-through wiring hooked up on my passenger side headlight connection to a capacitor then to the relays. I don’t have the error message in my monthly Onstar report. I’m also using Hylux ballasts, so I cant speak of any issues with the Morimoto ballasts/igniter setup. If you got your stuff from TRS and you’ve got some time to swing by, I’m sure they’ll help you troubleshoot it. They’re in Atlanta and they’ve got a bunch of good folks working there.

May wake you up with a few false alarms a couple of times until you get the sensitivity/thresholds set properly. Then you can utilize the techniques referred to above when you see the person.
