  1. Please consider if you're just a Neighborhood plow guy or a true business. If it's for bigger lots you're front end is going to take a Beating. ANd I recommend not a leveling kit for 1500 only 2500 up. Because of this: The plow blade rig center of mass is a distance from axle but distance to mount point on push plates I think Figures in. Think about it simply. 1500 axle rating I don't know honestly. My 01 2500hd is roughly 4800 each axle Now imagine side view, plow center mass point with line to push plates. That's going to pull as a vector meaning it will add torque to parts , IF it is not enough. Like I would recommend Meyer for you not Fisher because of long term wear and on tranny side I have the 4l80e Actually got it replaced rebuilt all new internals Upgraded. Stock one had 200k mileage. It's heavier components for friction caused by load. Don't forget ballast because as close to tailgate line tubes of sand or stacking salt or combo you gotta weigh pros cons Put it this way I love the 2001 to 06 Chevy 2500hd with only the 6.0 LS.its got bench front crew. Heavy to core in this year. I've accidentally hit curbs with a lot of torque or snagged manholes or grates hitting the ceiling where my employees were supposed to mark lmao. But in this business it's all on you ALWAYS. If not doing much Definitely try to find a 6.0 Engine from that year change oil it'll last 400k
  2. I've had 2 LS 6.0 Engines from the 2001-2006 model years on the 2500hd. TANKS! I Plow With Them and One Saved my Life. Engine is best made my opinion. Has to be the 6.0
  3. Trust me I've had mine 3 years on 3 trucks get the one I got. It's a trifold and amazing and only 350 but more durable than my 700 one
  4. hey man all i know is i bought a tiger something tri fold for a 6.5' bed 2500hd and fit on 01 03 and a 06 dodge and its relentless great product.
  5. Ok yes let me know what it turns out reading I'm curious and can relate to electrical problems
  6. No problem. I have heard very mixed reviews regarding both applications. Most common being oil leak in 8.1 and common diesel problems. I use my 2nd 6.0 (01) for plowing. And it is tuned but even untuned it was a TANK Look at my signature to see the POWER of the late model 6.0 Yea I was done with payments. My Advice is you get a 01-06 6.0 LS They are Bulletproof and not too knowledgeable about the Chevy manual but The 4l80e tranny had done good by me plowing heavy duty no problems. I really like the 01-03 years. You could find one under 9k and maybe need to Put a couple 1000 of work in em but that engine'll last ya
  7. Check your crankshaft position sensor. It really gave me a diagnostic pain in ass Its a bitch to replace too gotta remove starter
  8. Have you charged it? Because when it's colder the pressure is lower that's why you have to use gauges in Relation to atmosphere temp. Another possibility is a high pressure cutoff
  9. Easy check if it's HD: Look by radiator. If there's a small block in front that's the tranny cooler equipped on HD Models. Also HD Models gave a Tranny temp gauge on cluster
  10. I had to completely rebuild my 01 ac system. As mentioned high cut off and low cutoff are possibilities. Get a set of gauges from harbor freight. Cheap and do the job. Connect with quick connect to the high and low side (back left of Engine bay) They have black caps. Also when you do the gauges don't forget to open it. There are many other things and I can help but need more info
  11. I have the same control on my 01. What are the symptoms? No functionality , some etc
  12. Something Else to look at is the type of throttle control. Mine is a second cable some are electrical. Check cable would be something easy
  13. You gotta get a wiring diagram to trace the circuit. Something is tripping it it sounds like. Could be a relay or other issue but the service manual is very helpful in these situations and is well worth the 20 bucks
  14. The Alison tranny is a masterpiece so I've heard. I have the 4l80e or something like that. Tow haul mode holds the gears longer hence higher rev limit and the deceleration feeling is because you're in lower gear. Like other guy said mileage is Typical. I have a tune on mine so my tow haul mode is reprogrammed but it won't hurt you Unless you're doing it while moving. I hear that can cause long-term problems
  15. Get the 6.0! I've had 2. No Alison tranny I think I have the 480le or something like that. I've had 2 and they're bulletproof dude. See my signature true story. But this is how I've been screwed on my 01 and 03 2500hd 6.0s (That's all I buy that 6.0 Vortec) • AC - "Blower Motor" pretty sure is the cooling fan because you just have the compressor, accumulator, and some cutoff switches. I had to replace all on my 01 • brakes. Check brake lines for rust corrosion • check power steering pump and water pump for leaks and noises • check for ANY sign of electrical Gremlins • check the frame for severe corrosion (moreso here in NY) • check u joints and axle parts for loose or torn bushings and such • check the tranny: any hard shifting, slipping, etc • check transfer case by going through the 4 hi and low (roll going about 1-3mph and hit button. If it has trouble you will have trouble • check the catalytic converter for a rainbow color indicating rich fuel and It had been detonating in the cat • check exhaust for bad corrosion • check Carfax for maintenance history accident etc • leak around Differential I could go on but those are main ones. It's a great truck I highly recommend the 6.0 See my signature it's a true story
