  1. I have this issue, and I had it in my 2020 1500 as well. I switched out the Rancho's in my Tboss to Bilstein 5100's and my 1500 drove straight as an arrow. I have already replaced the rear rancho's and the fronts will go on next week. I'm hoping for the same results.
  2. Ever since I put that platinum blue DEF in my 2021 I get errors all the time and they just go away. I get bad DEF warnings, low mileage warnings, they all go away. From now on I'm only putting the cheapest and freshest DEF I can find in my truck.
  3. Sounds like the Exhaust Brake is holding your speed. Welcome to a HD truck. If you want to continue to accelerate hit the gas pedal for a bit and I believe it will let you coast, or at least let the truck now you are ok with a gain in speed.
  4. I went from a 6.2 LT TBoss to a 2500 Dmax Sierra for a better towing experience with my travel trailer. I'll never look back and may never own another 1500 again. The 6.2 had all the power I needed, but the diesel is just meant to be in a truck in my humble opinion. At 9klbs I don't feel the trailer regardless of weather.
  5. Can you add more about the tick... Is it a random, does it sound like it has rhythm to it? Is it loud like a hammer tapping on iron, or something else. DI engines tick like crazy!
  6. I guess this is either a known issue or I'm the only one that notices this sub either pounds some decent bass or seems to shut off with a crossover.
  7. I had a 2020 Tboss with the bose upgraded stereo and I now have a 2021 Denali HD. Same radio (as far as I know) and it has the same damn issue. The sub has a mind of its own. It comes on when it wants and it's great when it does, however it's not consistent and seems to work less of the time than more of the time. This is across the Genres of Country, Classic Rock, some of that EDM stuff and old school Rap. Any idea how to make the sub work 100% of the time? I have the bass all the way up, volume doesn't matter. I feel like it has a selective crossover but at times that selection is to just not work. Anyone else noticing this? If so is there a fix? Thanks in advance!
  8. knowing a few people in the auto industry or just looking at stats... I'd say of the Big 3 GM is more than heads and shoulders above the competition. They are making "drivable" cars and putting them on the road. Ford's production is down 1/3 at minimum in terms of vehicle sales and they are screwing their suppliers by not fulfilling their orders with them and telling them to shove it. For instance their Chassis stamping is down almost 40% and they have no plans to pay their suppliers that let down despite being contractually obligated. So I believe what you are calling "cheap games" is GM making their vehicles run and at least fulfilling some kind of demand. They are the leader of this in the U.S.
  9. I have a 2021 2500 Dmax and my power steering whines and groans like crazy!
  10. This worked well for me as well. I did that and a quick booster test and now my brakes feel the same everytime I drive them with a nice firm pedal.
  11. I feel the same way... If I lay on the brakes loaded or unloaded I stop very controlled and quickly. It just seems that the pedal travel to get to that point in consistent. I wonder if I should bleed the brakes.
  12. I've found that making sure the exhaust brake is on helps.
  13. Here in Michigan a dealer will go out of business if they don't accept GM discount. Get your vehicle from out of state and have it shipped to you. Those dealers are giving you the run around for no reason at all.
