Lostboy792 replied to SkidooSteve12's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)I have the weathertech mud flaps front and rear. They make a big difference on keeping the spray down on the sides of the truck, and super easy to install. Well worth the money
I just put steps on my 2500 hd. A lot of the aftermarket were listed for 1500 as well as 25/3500. They mount to the rocker and it appears the GM kept that part the same. Factory I am told there is a difference in how low they hang below the body. Other than that those are even interchangeable
Lostboy792 replied to Z71RAD88's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)I have hand calculated mine both towing and regular driving. I have been surprised that the computer has been within .3 to .5 each time. Towing a 35 foot 8500# bumper pull toy hauler i only average 7.5 at 65-70 range. Non towing around 16. I also only have around 1000 miles on it so I'm hoping things might improve over time.
Diesel is base 5600# on both, gas can very by cab and bed size, but for the most part they are the same standard according to the order guide. There are a few exceptions to that. Lightest possible(mainly standard cab)is 4800#, no added package is 5200#, though the long bed crew cab jumps that to 5600. Not trying to confuse you but that is the way the book shows it,
The LT uses the same 40/20/40 seat the custom does except it has a compartment that opens, so you could keep the truck as a 6 seater, i would think you only need to change the seat back/armrest section but I don't know how easy it unbolts from the seat part
I went with 2500 8'. The 2500 has plenty of capacity for my needs but I prefer the 8' bed because I can put an ATV in the bed and still be able to tow(and I feel that a longer wheelbase rides better). I ordered the truck to my specs as finding a 2500 long bed crew cab on the lot that was an LT was not common. Had I been shopping off the lot and found a 3500 I would not have turned it down, most of the extra capacity is a separate set of overload springs.
Another option we use at work because everyone looses adapters. We wire in a separate female plug on the trailer with the 4 pin coming out of it as a male plug. this way you have to have the 7 pin male plugged in and it is protected from the elements. Little extra work but somehow that is a system they haven't broke. Had some operator error when they forget to plug the other one in but that didn't surprise us??
