  1. When I replaced my DRL sockets and bulbs I found out that they would not come on unless the Transmission Gear selector was in Drive and the key on. The engine does not need to be running. If you haven't yet tried that, I would.
  2. Time to change some parts

    Where did you find the cabin filter located?
  3. Time to change some parts

    I would also suggest a radiator flush.

I just like to have all the information that I can about my rides. I would love to have a Shop Manual for this vehicle.
  6. I am in need of some Service Parts Identification Help. This is the sticker in the glove-box. Where can I find something to de-code all the information in it? Any help at all would be appreciated.
  7. Frame rust

    That is basically the same thing that I did with mine. It has held up well.
  8. Did you ever find out what was wrong?
  9. Frame rust

    I have used SEM Rust Mort and POR15 before. I used it on my 1985 F-150 when I had the bed off the frame. Granted, I live in Georgia and I believe we have not started to use salt until recently. However this stuff really works, Do some research.
  10. When I replaced my DRL sockets and bulbs I found out that they would not come on unless the Transmission Gear selector was in Drive and the key on. The engine does not need to be running. If you haven't yet tried that, I would.
  11. I cannot say whether the master cylinder is bad or not. If you did not loosen or remove the Master Cylinder cap when you where C-clamping the pistons back in then you might have caused an issue also. There needs to be somewhere for the pressure to go. And Yes, even if the pedal goes to the floor easily it will pump fluid to the bleeders. That is what happens when you bleed the air out of the brakes.
  12. Personally, whenever I change my brakes (front and/or rear) I always flush and bleed the brake fluid. I also use the synthetic DOT4 brake fluid because it has a higher boiling point. I live in Georgia and we have a lot of humidity here. Brake fluid is Hygroscopic, which means that every time it comes in contact with air it readily absorbs and retains moisture. That in turn leads to corrosion (rust) and crud in the brake hydraulic system. In our climate it is recommended to flush the system every two years. I also clean and properly lubricate everything with synthetic high temp brake grease. Everything that needs replacing or has a tendency to wear out gets changed. There is no worse feeling than driving along and pushing down on the brake pedal only to find out that you do not have any brakes when you need them the most.

    1) Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) Yes. My top priority when choosing any accessory or upgrade is a combination of all of the above. But, mainly it is the best quality for a reasonable price. I have purchased both inexpensive as well as expensive parts in the past, only to have them fail for various reasons. I have also purchased inexpensive parts that have outlasted and outperformed the more expensive ones. Research is good, and reviews are but another tool to use. I would also say that I use only OEM or better-quality parts on all of my vehicles and tend to keep them 10 to 20 years – sometimes longer. 2) Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) That is a loaded question. Sometimes the negative reviews are not about the quality of the part. But rather the service or lack of. Or bad packaging, which results in receiving damaged product. Or the return policy, or lack of a decent warranty. Having said all that, my answer is No, I will always purchase the better-quality product… or do without. However, sometimes the higher-end, better quality products do not justify the high price that is asked for them. Sometimes you can find higher-end, better quality products in no-name boxes for less dollars too. 3) Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? No, I will not. If there is no quality and it does not perform as advertised, then looks do not matter.
  15. 6.0 Gasser tune

    I recently acquired a 2004 GMC 2500HD 4x4 and was looking to do the same as you " to save gas and also swap to unload the mustard when need be. " Someone mentioned to me to look for a used tuner. They said to look at LetGo, Facebook MarketPlace, and OfferUp, among others. I found a local guy on LetGo wit a Superchips Flashpaq 2865 for a good $$ price. I also bought a Glasstite Raven Camper Shell from him. I just got the tuner last night and installed the performance tune on it. It says you are supposed to use 91 octane with the tune, but I only had 87 octane in it at the time. We went for a short drive and I can honestly say that I did see a definite difference. I am going to do an online update on the tuner, then I am installing the Gas Mileage tune on the truck to see how it does. If it saves me over 5 miles per gallon I think it will be worth it. The guy said I should look for a used FIPK cold air kit for it also, and that would help increase the performance tune performance. I will also be using it for the occasional towing tune. My truck is totally a factory stock truck, with no upgrades. It does however have the 6.0, 4L80E, and a 4.11 geared rear end.
