  1. I only buy fuel from top tier stations. One of my friends use to test fuels and while it all comes out of the same pipelines there is a huge difference in quality and additives. Since I quit buying fuel from anywhere I have noticed minor improvements in all around performance of both my gas and diesel vehicles. This isn’t necessary for people that don’t rack up a lot of miles or keep vehicles very long though. I rack up 50k a year on my work trucks and keep my other vehicles a while if they seem reliable. Before I started purchasing quality fuel I did have some excessive wear on the fuel system of my diesel. While not horrible more then I should have see considering how well I maintain my vehicles.

  2. That would be my bet. Turn the ac on full blast and have it on fresh air. Then spray a bleach and water mix in the vents in the cowl of the truck. That will kill the mold. For now on makes sure you turn your ac off a little ways from your destination, but keep the fan on. That way the condenser has a chance to dry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Looks like the issue was a bad ground wire. After checking several things one cool day I grabbed the ground wire and it was warm. I replaced the ground and haven’t had a problem since. I’ve seen issues with GMs ground wires since they went back to top posts in 07. Not to say it won’t pop up since it was intermittent, but the last couple of weeks have been good.

  4. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but I set mine on a hard packed gravel or dirt parking lot or road. I set them just enough they lock up the tires on that surface. I figure they will be good on pavement then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks I’ll have a look and see what I can find. Another suggestion I got is the chip in the key might be going bad causing the security/no start issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I got a loaded ‘15 and don’t have any complaints. Can’t you still custom order trucks with whatever options you want? I spend more time in my truck then anywhere else so I want it nice. I don’t know who in the hell would complain about mileage or power it does just as good as any 2500 truck. Unless you comparing to to a diesel which I’d stupid. Plus the 6.0 is bulletproof. I trust it more then any diesel in this market which is why I got it for a work truck. Well and it’s way cheaper to run. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Ya got me there, but I am and supervisor for an excavation company. I just drive or idle on a dusty job site for 10hrs a day 6 days a week. Also like I said embellishment since it went from 1/2” to 1/4” all of a sudden. I also said sabotage. Seeing that it’s a logging truck I wouldn’t be surprised if some hippies decided to put some dirt in the fuel tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Front diff, Tcase, and etc add about 300lbs. The front drive shaft isn’t driven when it’s in 2wd, so all you have extra is the chain drive in the tcase. Like I said ain’t no way it cost even 1mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have a 2015 that's new to me and it has several electronic glitches. I had a 15 before that didn't act like this that I can recall. The biggest issue is the theft deterrent preventing it from starting on occasion. Usually a few cycles of the key and it starts fine. I often get pop-ups during startup about theft deterrent and front camera not working even though it has no camera that I know of. My display on the dash and radio switch randomly, but mostly when I use my blue tooth it won't go back to the previous screen. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  10. I've had several 6.0 truck with both 3.73 and 4.10s there is very little mileage difference. Like was said you would be lucky to pay for the gear swap. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  11. Damn some of y'all are smoking some good shit if you believe these mileage claims. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  12. Gasser 14.6mpg 12.2mpg 10.4mpg I’m happy with that since my truck idles a lot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Maybe if your a rock crawler, but not in the mud where IFS has better ground clearance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have a hard time believing there is a 1-2mpg difference. This isn’t the 70s when we don’t have inter axle locks. Hell I only lost 2mpg going from stock tires to 35s. I would say 0.5mpg at most. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
