I need some input... I have purchased two (2) sets of Rigid Industries Dually Lights. One set is the SAE-rated fog lights, the other is the D-Series Pro driving lights. I also purchased the Rigid Industries mounting kit which allows me to mount the Rigid pods in the factory fog light pockets and a SoCal Supertruck LED pod mount which allow me to mount a set of LED pods in the lower grille opening. What I need help deciding is.... do I mount the fogs in the fog pockets and the driving lights in the lower grille opening, or do I do the opposite and mount the driving lights in the fog pockets and the fog lights in the lower grille? I can make arguments for both. What do you think?
I have looked everywhere as well. I have not been able to find anything. Not one hidden winch mount. All I saw, that might work, is through Warn. They have a Trans4mer kit. But no hidden winch kits. Let me know if you find one. I want/need one.
While doing an oil change on my recently acquired 2016 2500DH, I noticed the plastic "splash shield" was cracked and the plastic was broken around the 2 upper bolt holes. Instead of installing another plastic shield, I wanted to upgrade to skid plates. Something that offered more protection up front and underneath the front differential and transmission. Maybe even covers the cats to prevent theft. I have searched up and down the internet, I cannot find anyone except for BDS who makes/sells skid plates for our trucks. The BDS is a nice unit, except it doesn't fully cover a lot of the front steering and drive components like the stock splash shield and it only goes under the front differential. Has anyone seen other options? I may have a buddy of mine fab something up if nothing else is available.
I have a 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 crew cab 4x4 with the 6.0L gasser. My truck is a basic work truck with torsion bars cranked, 20x10 Fuel wheels with 285/60/20 Falken Wildpeak AT3's and a Magnaflow cat-back. My truck weighs in right at 7,070lbs empty with me in it (I weigh 230lbs) and 1/2 tank of fuel. With my mixed highway and city driving, I get a solid 12.3mpg all day long. Pulling my 6,200lb travel trailer, I average about 8-10mpg. So I am on par with everyone else. That said... this thing rides like a truck. Its rough. Not smooth at all. But it has power, sounds great and is built like a tank. It also handles well honestly.
My vote would be for the Falken Wildpeak AT3's. That is what I just put on my HD. I was also looking at the Firestone Destination XT's. The reviews on the Wildpeaks are great! I have not had an opportunity to drive them in the snow, but the 3-peak "Severe Snow Service" designation gives me a little bit more piece (for whatever thats worth) when driving in the Colorado snow storms. They are quiet and ride well. I am running 285/60/20 on 20x10 Fuel wheels if that makes a difference. I personally would stay away from the Goodyear Duratrac's. I had them on my Nissan Titan and they do excellent in deep snow, but packed snow, they are horrible. After 20,000 miles, the siping starts wearing away and they become more of a mud tire than A/T. They hummed like crazy at 25,000 miles. I removed them and put on BFG KO2's. The KO2's are good, but they wouldn't stay balanced and didn't do well in slush. Again... my vote would be Wildpeaks or Destination XT's
I just picked up a 2016 Sierra 2500 4x4 6.0L gas, base model back in June. It had 32,000 miles on it when I bought it, but now has 42,000. The previous owner cranked the torsion bars and installed new 20x10 fuel wheels and a Magnaflow exhaust. I love this truck. It is perfect for me because it is a base work truck with bench front seat, grey vinyl seats, vinyl floor, gas motor, crew cab w/ 6.5ft bed, and white. It has no options other than manual tow mirrors and 4.10 gears. As Newdude said, this thing is a tank. It is big and built well. The engine is strong and is paired well with the 6-speed auto. I average right around 12.3mpg all the time whether I'm in the city or back road driving. I have no issues going up I-70 through the mountains of Colorado. I pull a 25ft travel trailer weighing around 6500 lbs. and it does it without any issue. I recently did landscaping and hauled 9+ loads of rock and dirt weighing around 3,000lbs. I was very impressed how it handled the load. I like having my vehicles over built for what I use them for. I looked at the 1500s before I bought the 2500 and I just liked the size and build more than the 1500s. But thats just me. I cannot recommend the 2016 2500 enough.
