I watched the banks series, very interesting. This cover looks to be made like the stock cover but with some added features. AAM claims 45-60* cooler fluid with this cover, so that would be an added benefit. The New banks cover has huge gains in terms of fluid cooling but no love for the gas trucks, only available for the diesel trucks.
Anyone on here use one of these aam 74030017 diff covers? They list up to 2014 for Silverado but not sure if something changed after that? https://www.amazon.com/Dodge-AAM-Aluminum-Differential-Cover/dp/B01MS6Y5QD/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=aam+74030017&qid=1569115866&sr=8-1
My 2016 does the same thing, once I start driving forward the camera Is still on momentarily and the radio never goes back to the main screen. I figured its just a characteristic of the truck, if you find out otherwise by taking it to the dealer post your findings please.
Is what it is, big truck with big v8 and towing gears isn't going to net great Mpg. I'm actually happy with mine I average about 12-13 and drive 60-80 miles a day, I had a 2017 Tundra I got rid of for this truck and my mileage was the same and a little less during certain circumstances. So I gained much more truck without a mpg loss. Do the tunes really help increase the mpg?
You will love that 2017, I just picked up a 2016 2500hd 6.0 3wks ago and it has been fantastic. I went from a 2017 Tundra to this 2016 2500 and it tows my camper so well, makes driving very enjoyable while towing. Mileage has even improved from what I was getting with my Tundra, trans temps don't even get to the normal temp my Tundra would run unloaded which was 186*. Enjoy the new truck!
I just sold my 2017 Tundra and got back into a Silverado. I use my truck for work and towing duties and I was averaging 12.6-13.4 in the Tundra mixed highway and city, open highway I was right at 18-19, Towing my pop up camper I was at 14-14.6 and when I went to my travel trailer I was getting 10.3. I just towed the camper this weekend with my 2500 6.0 and was able to match the mileage I got with the Tundra. Tundra was a pretty good truck, I owned it for 2.5 years and put 48k miles on it, no recalls and two warranty claims. One was for a broken gas cap and the other was a big one the dreaded cam tower leak at 21k which required the top end of the motor to be torn down and resealed. Things I disliked was the small fuel tank 26gal and only 22 usable because of the 4gal reserve, brakes while towing, soft leaf springs, hard motor to work on if you ever have an issue with it, having to remove the front skid plate for oil changes to access the filter.
What I gathered from reading other posts was it had a better filter media then the standard pf48 filter so that's why I went with it. I did see a small increase in oil pressure after install, these 6.0 run pretty low oil pressure as idle it seems. Just getting back in the Chevy truck game, was in a 2017 Tundra before this 2500hd and had a 2014 1500 Silvy before the Tundra.
Excellent! Thanks so much for the info!
Ok so the white rearward led come on with the cargo light? I was thinking those came on when you unlocked with the Keyless entry. I just checked it and the Cargo light does activate the rearward led's, signals activate the red arrow in the mirror and the front amber led's are acting as a marker light with the lights on. I was confused on the led rearward lights I kept seeing them referred to as puddle lamps so that's why I was thinking they would activate upon entry or exit of the truck.
Yeah no problem, thanks for the quick response!

Here's some picks of my new to me 2016 W/T, searched for almost A year for one of these trucks and got lucky on this one. 19k miles on it, not a scratch in the bed or hitch area. This thing has been babied and I am loving it so far. I have always had Chevy trucks except for a 2017 Tundra for 2 years before this that I had traded a 2014 1500silvy on and man I didn't realize how much of a car with a bed my Tundra was now that I'm back in a Chevy truck. Just a few things done so far for protection like weathertechs, and bed mat. Few little things like led license plate lights, salex console organizer and phone mount. Plan on tint for the front windows, exhaust, maybe CAI, and a tune. This thing will tow my 03 s10 to various shows, use for my business and pull the camper. No more 200mile range with the Tundra while towing is going to be nice.
Hello, I have a 2016 2500hd W/T with RPO code DPN. My mirrors have the puddle lamps on them but do not function, what is involved or what do I need to make them function? Thanks
