  1. I agree. My brothers Mercedes are all problem children. Especially the supercharged AMG. He got it so he would have something faster than my Vette. Didn't work. The Vette smokes it. I doubt it will outrun the 6.2 Trail Boss. At least to the speed limiter. But it's an expensive to fix problem child. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  2. On my 2020 6.2 it real close. I used an average over 5 fill ups on a trip. It was the same. My Duramax is way off. By 3 or 4 MPG. Has been since it was new. And yes it is worse than the DIC. Most people on the Duramax forum call them dash liars. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. It's a leak between the transmission and transfer case. They need to order a seal kit. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah but I prefer not to. Right now with what's going on I don't want to drive a pass around vehicle. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  5. Well the truck is too long for the trailer. It will fit but the front tires tilt the deck before the back ones get to the trailer. Almost there but not quite. I have been wanting to make it power tilt anyway. I ordered the stuff except the steel today. I will get the steel locally. Also the step tubes will barely clear the fenders. They would hit on bumps. But blocks under the tires will fix that. So the Vette is loaded up ready to go. I hope they fix it in one day or I will have to go get the trailer with the other truck.

  6. I guess I am just over it. It used to upset me with my Corvette. When I heard it on the new truck I just thought great another one. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  7. Airlift makes an auto adjust kit. I have it on my old truck. It works great. I am going to get it for my new truck. Check airlifts site for part number on air bags if you have a Trail Boss or AT4. It's a different kit but most resellers like Amazon get it wrong. But the kit has a magnetic switch that keeps the truck at the same height all the time. This load and the truck was still at the same height. And that's maple so it's heavy. My new 1500 can't do that so I kept my old one. It's a 2500HD Duramax and is lowered 3 inches so without the air bags it would hit the bumpers on every bump. But it rides good with them.

  8. It rained all day here. Sometimes really hard rain. I looked it over real careful and it's dry. I hope it won't leak. As for the headliner I think either the windshield or the rear window has to come out to get it out of the truck. At least that was the case on my 03 Duramax. Well not mine as it's an extended cab but if it was a crew cab it would. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  9. Well it made it home okay. It's going to the dealer Friday. I think the transmission may have been overfilled. But since it is new I don't want to touch it. Let the dealer sort it out. I have a doctor's appointment just down the road so I will load it on my tilt deck and take it there behind my old Duramax. The other way won't work. The trailer load capacity is 5300 pounds which is about what the 1500 weighs. The Duramax is about 6200 pounds. Plus it would put too much tounge weight on the 1500s hitch. It's only rated at 900 pounds vs the Duramax hitch that is 1500. I will load it today to be sure it fits and the tounge weight is not too much. I have a weigh safe scale hitch. If it won't work I will put my Corvette on the trailer and tow it with the 1500. I know it will work that way. I can adjust the Vette on the trailer to any reasonable hitch weight. Anything from 700 to 1500 is well within the length of the trailer. It will likely be raining though. I hate to take that car out in the rain. It's a nightmare to get cleaned up.

  10. What is the valve spring issue? If you want to find the leak yourself there is an easy way. It will work unless the leak is under the spoiler where you can't get to it. Take trash bags and hang them behind the cab in front of the vent outlets. Tape them in place. Push folded fabric like a towel down between it and the bed to hold the plastic bag against the vent. Turn the fan on high. Spray soapy water where you suspect the leak is. You will get bubbles. With the vents blocked the fan will pressurize the cab. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
  11. Well I bought this truck because on every long trip with my travel trailer I had a problem with my old Duramax. Now I am 900 miles from home and there's trans or transfer case fluid all over underneath. It's a 6.2 with a 10 speed. 2 speed transfer case Trail Boss LT. It has 1600 miles on it and is less than a month old. I am not happy at all. Anyone else had this happen? I can't tell where it's coming from as it's all over. It's the back of the transmission or front of the transfer case area. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  12. You know the aftermarket like CRL will make a window to fix this. But not right away as they are all still under warranty. But they are designing them now I am sure for damage replacement. I would just pay for one and go that route if it's available. I'd rather have an auto glass guy who only dose auto glass install it anyway. Most aftermarket stuff is better anyway. My truck had the factory tried fold bed cover at almost a grand. There are much better aftermarket options for less. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  13. Well I installed mine today. I agree that lower hinge thing is not going to work. I cut them off too. I did use the screw and nut on the bottom. There is not a place for the speed nut so I just put it on top and tightened it. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  14. On my trail boss LT it's part of a package. The moon roof was an extra option. I would have preferred to have neither. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  15. Mine showed up yesterday. I will install them this weekend. Sent from my SM-T510 using Tapatalk
