  1. I’ve never felt that performance pad are worth the money. Your truck weighs three times as much the cars up driven in the pass. I don’t care what pads you put on it’s going to take more petal pressure to stop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I would just buy “new” wheels. The chances of finding those wheels are slim and even slimmer to not end up buying a set. You can pick up a set of nice stockers or H2 wheels for $400-$600. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I don’t know on these newer trucks, but the older ones you had to get a new switch from a US truck and have your BCM reprogrammed. The hard part is getting the right programming. You have to know someone that understands what you are trying to do and knows or is willing to find the right programming for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Just drop the pan, change the filter and fluid, then pull the the return hardline from the cooler(lower one IIRC) put some clear tubing on the hardline and run it to the drain pan. Fire the truck shift it thought the gears a few times. Have a second person watching the hose for the fluid to look newer then top off the trans. And your done! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Varying Ride Height

    Every truck is a little different! I would guess you should be able to make that up with the tbars easy enough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Factory was ceramic, but they are hard as hell. That’s why they last so long and don’t dust. They stop ok, but not as well as softer ceramic/metallic pads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ll pile on here too. Gasser end of story! Unless you want a Diesel or tow a lot. I have both my diesel is my weekend toy. It’s far from stock and puts a smile on my face everyday I drive it. I buy 6.0l gassers for my work trucks. I’ve had 2 go over 200k without a major repair and my 2015 is sitting at 170k with only a brake job done thanks to a stuck caliper. They all get ragged on barley a day goes by they don’t see 5000rpms. They tow maybe once a month, but I do try and stay under 9000lbs. I can justify hiring a hotshot for anything more then that. I love my diesels, but my work trucks have to be practical. So as long as GM produces a dependable gasser I will own one for work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Whatever the cheap ones are at o’Reillys are pretty dustless. I put 10k on my truck in 5 months and never washed it. The wheels where dirty as heck, but didn’t have any brown brake dust on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 2015 brake job

    My brakes where about wore out because of the shitty little seals GM put on the end of the calipers. One of them was torn and the slide pin was starting to get seized up. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I want to see a vid after you get it installed. I want as much flow as I can but only a little more noise. I plan on a supercharger to once I quit spending some much on my diesel and can give my gasser some upgrades. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Mechanically they’re all great. I’ve heard some issues about that earlier six speed trans, but never seen it personally. I love my 2015 it’s is leaps and bounds better them my 2008 and a bit better then my 2012. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. That load is about 9000lbs and the truck is 9500lbs, so she is squatting a little. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. 2015 brake job

    The dealers correct seized calipers are very common in vehicles in the Rust Belt. It happening in the summer doesn’t matter rust doesn’t stop just because there’s no snow on the ground. I will need new brakes soon and I’m at 160k on my 2015 2500 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. 6.0 oil change interval

    You don’t need to pull the valve covers to see contamination. I do my oil change based on the DIC and it’s never let me down. That has been backed up by Oil Analysis. My work trucks run all day whether I’m idling or driving. 190k on my 2008 2500 6.0l that a sloppy tech busted the bolts on the air intake so it was ingesting who knows how much dirt for who knows how long. I found it at 140k and put another 50k on it without any trouble. 160k on my 2015 2500 6.0l that I plan to run to 300k if all goes well 180k on my 2006 2500 Dmax it’s at 650hp and has gone as long as 16k on dino oil without and oil change backed up by Analysis.

  15. Let hear a video of it. I would like more power, but love my quite truck too. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
