  1. Back 2010, I bought a new 31BH TT from Forest River, to pull behind my 1500 with almost identical setup as your truck. On the 75 mile trip home with the new camper, I decided I would never tow it again with a half ton. Too much trailer to stop safely in an emergency situation was obvious. Nothing to do with the power to get it going... ALL about stopping it. Luckily, I was also buying a 2500HD dmax at same time to start a business. Night and day difference from a tranny and braking capability. Still holds true today on the newest trucks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. What this guy said! Not knocking Amsoil, cuz it good, but I use Mobil 1 ESP in all my gas cars to 7500 miles - and duramax that tows daily to 5k - with these WIX XP filters. Good combo. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Guess I'd be getting out of those duratracs and into another of many tires that dont do that. Have had good luck for 20 years with Michelin LTX models on half tons. The C load version rides nice, grips well in northern climates (less icy conditons where a straight snow tire excells), and balances and wears extremely well. On my 2500/3500's, Ive had great overall performance from Cooper and Toyo with E load ratings... but thats not what the OP was asking about. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. either something has to be off in your alignment, or your tires are in some way defective. You always go to the same place for alignments? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. Rotate every 3k? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. I guess if you budget for the looks and the stance.. wheel bearings gotta be in there at some point. 2-4k for the wheels... bearings...chump change! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. You think that will work on a left over 18? Since manufacturer rebates atent an option anymore, this might be a longshot, or am i wrong on that? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. Why dont you just find a 19 with similar features AND rebates. Here in MN a truck like that is easily 10k-12k off sticker right now to start clearing the lots for the 20's Theres another sucker out there for that salesman to sell that truck. And, if its 150 miles away, and you considering it already, why not broaden your serach a bit more and look outside a ways of CA to save even more. Dealers in OR, NV, NM might be better options??? When I'm looking, I search a 500 mile radius, and my last truck got shipped in from MI to get the diesel i wanted at over 8k off sticker. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. If you get audited, id be prepared to prove that you are their principle form of transportation, ie. that they dont drive anymore. Unless, the vehicle is titled in mom and dads name(s), that is. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. From what I ve read here, you bought a pair of tires - instead of a set of four? Is that correct? If not, why wouldn't you replace all four to ensure proper ride and function of your ABS system? 16 months after purchase, with the truck sitting for various periods of time, not knowing for sure the PSI in each tire, you are finally contacting the business to see if they will help you out. I'd have been back within the first week to resolve the issue, starting with them making sure the PSI was at what the door panel says. Then doing a road force balance, and/or getting an alignment done as well. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. 105k on my '14 DRW DMAX and still going strong on OEM brakes. 98% of my miles have been towing a trailer 5 days/wk, which weighs between 10-15k. Trailer is 6 years old and has needed one full set of brakes replaced 18 months ago, based on how I keep the gain adjusted. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
