  4. Replacing U-Joints on 2010 Silverado

    Some swear by nongreaseable ones, supposed to be stronger. I could only find grease fitted spicers though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  5. Why pull the battery completely? I've done a year sitting outside and six months with just pulling off the negatives Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  6. Daily Driver Tires

    I run bf and have little issue, and I'm pretty much always snow and ice. Supposedly cooper at3 are better on ice, but hopefully it will be a year or so before I have to look into that. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  7. Daily Driver Tires

    MTs can be worse than all seasons in snow. Snow is all about siping and MTs don't come with it Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  8. Having lived in IA the fuel shouldn't be the issue its far enough North that they compensate. I've been able to get a 6.5 to crank in ND without being plugged and 6.6 in AK in worse temps. I don't think his is working right. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  9. I would assume that in Idaho the fuel would already be blended or treated plus you had treatment in so that shouldn't be an issue. I would haphazard that your glowplugs aren't doing their job. My pickup has been parked all day in negative double digits and I neglected to plug in and in fired still. Just takes longer to warm up. Been parked overnight below neg 30s and nothing but the block heater, still fired. I had issues with doorlocks and an abs sensor, but fired. I run 5w40 and get pressure right away so I wouldn't see a need for 0 weight. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I537 using Tapatalk
  10. Block Heater

    Isn't that only true for gas engine ones though? And I should have read all the posts, since this was answered above
  11. Car seats in ext cab?

    I don't remember if I did rear too much, but pretty sure I did it in my 2000. My only issue with front was before my lil guy weighed enough for booster he could kick the crap out of the seat if he so chose, but he was pretty decent sized so I doubt it would be much issue.
  12. Who has BFG All Terrian T/A's?

    I have 245's on my 05 2500HD, 245 so I have a more common size up here and to cut through deep snow and get more weight on the contact patch because the roads are constantly packed snow ice. They work pretty well, don't seem to have any more issue than other similar vehicles. I do have about a half ton of ballast in the back though. I would have said they are great but I am sitting in my driveway ditch waiting for the tow truck to replace the one that broke. That is more my fault, but I still prefer to blame something else.
  13. Amazon prime is a must up here
  14. Tire Chain Question

    If you want to be real high speed just get some automatic tire chains
