  1. I still hate the mirrors haha. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. Just wait until your truck is delivered. You'll appreciate it more. Sounds like it's close. As long as your not going to die, just try to wait. You're not stuck with it. Congrats and enjoy!
  3. 172k and still going strong on my 2015 5.3. I change air filters every 40-50k, 7-9k oil changes, did plugs at about 110k. I also fogged the motor with Sea foam at about 100k. I also force the system to stay in v8 mode by keeping the trans in 5th gear. Hoping to hit 250k with this one. Shouldn't be an issue. Replaced entire A/C System at 130k Rebuilt Transmission at 170k Other than that just brakes and other preventative maintenance like fluids for transfer case, differentials, greasing here and there. This truck has been cared for, but it's also been put to work hard almost daily. I'm very impressed with the overall quality. People seldom believe it has the miles it does, especially after seeing interior. I keep it clean but nothing fading, ripped, broken, ect. Cloth interior.
  4. I see oversized tires. Did you re gear? If not, than that's your issue.
  5. I paid 3700.00 for a rebuild of my trans. They brought it to the dealer for the re-learn. Managed to squeeze max warranty out of them at 36k miles. They said if ANYTHING goes, even if an original part they didn't replace, they cover it. It was 4300 for a remanufactured unit GM wanted 5700 for the job. This truck will just be my daily cruiser/home project cruiser now so it'll be fine for another couple of years. Although, damn, now I'm regretting not just getting it built up a little haha.

  6. I agree and disagree. I can upload at least 200 pictures of this thing towing or hauling quite heavy. I didn't try to kill this truck but, I also used it for work so it's a tool I never was easy on. Anyway, like I've mentioned, I was expecting it to go soon based on its use. In the end I'm very happy with what I've gotten out of this truck. She'll have an easier life as I have hired more people and bought actual work trucks. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. It wasn't. It was used and abused. Had a new gasket, filter, and fluid, but I never got around to at least freshening it up. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. It was too late. They finished it yesterday afternoon. It's back in the driveway. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. You can have a 5.3 with the 9.76 too. Max tow package. I have a high mileage 15 with the 9.76 12 with zero axle leakage. I did have a bent rear passenger axle shaft but that's what happens when you smoke a median while avoiding a vehicle just stopped because they "dropped their phone and was using maps". Anyway it's very easy to pull the axle shafts, seals, bearings, ect. If you're feeling shaking (I was too)and the brakes are good, it could be a bent shaft. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. I was expecting the trans to go soon. Most of the miles were hard working miles. Always watched Temps though. It never cooked and remained strong to the very end. Motor runs like a top. Doesn't consume too much over 7k mile change intervals. Fresh air filter every 40k, on 2nd set of plugs, soon to be 3rd. I plan to pull the heads to inspect them and blast them if needed. Do a top end refresh. I've had other trucks hit over 350k with no major surgery. Being in 5th gear hasn't hurt either the engine or trans. At least to my knowledge. With 33s and 3.73s I'm turning at about 2200rpm at 70 so not crazy high revs on highway. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. Hell yes I have. This truck has been an absolute beast over the last few years. I was expecting this, so it wasn't a huge deal. Sucks on the wallet side, especially after just booking our honeymoon the day before. Oh well. Fresh A/C system, fresh trans, let's keep on rolling! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Haha. I wish. It's just getting rebuilt. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks! 250k is my goal but I have no problem taking it further. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Dang! Wish I didn't read this. My transmission just went on my 15' @ 175k. I am having it rebuilt now, but now I'm going to be worried about these damn lifters. I have solely driven in M5 to keep it in v8 mode for almost all of the miles. Hopefully that'll help me? Not sure. Good luck with the repairs. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. She'll be back with a new transmission... Shes had a tough life. I was expecting this for the last month or so for some reason. Def in the last 3 days as it was lugging when accelerating, then stopped moving altogether. I noticed it after some spirited back roads driving. For some reason I fail to remember it's a heavy ass truck! Anyway 175k on the clock, lots of towing, hauling, and red light rippin'. I see at least another 100k before getting a new one. There is nothing else wrong with this truck. Seats and interior still look new considering the miles. I've been extremely happy with this truck over all. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
