    2015 Sierra 2500 HD SLT Double Cab 6.0
  1. Midnight Edition w/ plow

  2. Midnight Edition w/ plow

    Here's my Fisher Minute Mount 2 on my 15 HD - the mounts are very good regarding how they stick out ... actually very tight to the bumper, they are in the position of the tow hooks and the tow hooks remain installed and functional Most like Fisher uses electric only under the hood to run the hydraulic pump that is all on the external plow frame that you take off when not in use ... so your truck will have just 2 electric plugs (hidden if installed right) and the two lower mounts ... in off season Plowing is easy ... slow & aware ... you'll catch on in 1 small snow storm - not much to worry about - truck or plow are top notch strong - your truck warranty will still be in effect My guess - you will not regret having an electric hydraulic plow set up, and preferably at least 8', Fisher is very common in the Northeast
  3. A hypereutectic piston is an internal combustion engine piston cast using a hypereutectic alloy–that is, a metallic alloy which has a composition beyond the eutectic point. Hypereutectic pistons are made of an aluminum alloy which has much more silicon present than is soluble in aluminum at the operating temperature.
  4. As long as it's documented you have a claim if it fails - get it in writing !
  5. and my 2004 , 11, & current 15 (all HD 6.0's) were all very quiet in 4WD Hi - go figure
  6. I have a 15 HD SLT 6.0 Plow Prep 18" tires/wheels Head Lights are fair to OK compared to other years - 16's are better 15 steering is traditional & very good my 04 11 & 15 drivelines were are exceptional quality 6.0 6 speed 4.10 (04 had the 4 spd) no issues - very good truck my 6.0 has 96,000 miles and uses about 1/4 of a quart of oil in 7000 miles truck is all original except tires oil and air filters and runs NEW I drive 75 all day and average 13.5 mpg I only hope my next one is as good
  7. kinda / not actually .001
  8. and that's why I said IF the Dealer is with YOU - the Manu will usually agree ...
  9. Don't ever expect your brand loyalty to mean anything to the manufacturers and companies now a days. You are replaceable. at times your dealer/salesman ... can be / will be a big asset to a problem - I think the Manufacturer is not as responsive until the dealer is onboard +-
  10. my guess is the new gas V8 is being built and GM does NOT want the old 6.0 gas (2019) sitting on the lot like an antique iron anchor with less HP than the 2020 - only guessing but not many 2019 6.0's avail still compared to other years +-
  11. GM better do this right - lots of competition If it ain't broke don't fix it (with new fangled technology BS)
