  1. Shudder/Vibration Issue

    I have 16k miles on my 2018 5.3/6spd LTZ I bought in November. I haven’t had any studders out of mine but it does seem to go full on retard sometimes when trying to decide the right gear. I wonder if changing the fluid to the newest GM recommendation would be a good preemptive move. I am about to start pulling my 27ft camper with it for the summer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Exhaust flapper

    That sucks because that is right where 90% of my driving is. I’m about 1700 rpm at 70mph. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Exhaust flapper

    I would have thought I would hear the difference when the arm came on, but I can’t. Am I right in thinking that it is completely closed when the truck isn’t running. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I clamped my exhaust flapper to what I think is open on my 2018 about a week ago. I can’t tel any difference in the exhaust note and I don’t get any choppering in 4cyl mode like I expected. I am thinking about just having it cut off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. We were going to eat one night down by the river in STL and I pulled my DMax into a parking garage and the attendant waived me forward and as I started up the incline it bent my antenna back to the top of my truck so we had to have everyone behind me back out and so we could get out of there. I hate parking garages and glad I only go to cities that have them a handful of times a year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My 2018 will clunk in the same spot pretty much every day. On the 4 lane to my house there is about a half mile down hill coast, then a mile long uphill and right at the top is my exit that is also uphill that comes to a stop sign. Pretty much every day when slowing for the stop sign it clunks really hard on the 2 - 1 shift. I have a Range AFM disabler. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I bought my 2018 LTZ crew cab 4x4 last month new for 39k. My suggestion would be stick with 3.42 gears with whatever you decide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Is that something the dealer can enable. I only have 7000 miles on my 2018 and have warranty through 120k so I don’t plan on tuning it any time soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So what do you do if you just want to add E85 capability on a stock vehicle. I thought the thread I read said the factory computer was ready for it and you just need the sensor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Isn’t it a pretty simple and cheap task to change the non ffv to ffv. I thought I had read it was just a sensor and a couple of lines that had to be replaced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. This was Monday on my way to work. 2018 LTZ crew cab 4x4 5.3/6spd. A mix of 68 and 70mph on cruise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve had mine for a month now, about to hit 6000 miles. Added a set of eBay special nerf bars and an Undercover Elite bed cover. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have a 6.5x14 trailer and I hauled 35 sheets of 1/2" 4'x8' osb last weekend on it and thought I would try tow/haul on my 2018 and I noticed it made some of the downshifts pretty hard, like jolt you into your seat belt hard.
  15. My 2018 isn’t FF either and I ran one tank of E85 in it and had the symptoms as the OP. I am going to order the sensor and tubes soon to convert mine over. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
