  1. Stupid driver's mirror does not heat up anymore. I bought this truck in May 2016 and have 92K kilometers. Anyone have a fix for this issue or a link on how to fix it? I looked at the usual sources and found zilch. The quality on this truck compared to my '09 sucks. Thanks,
  2. I had the same issue with my '16. Dealer offered to rip out the dash to fix the issue. I wisely said "no" as I figured that it would come back to me with numerous rattles etc. Mine changes with the temperature. On some days, it sits almost flat.
  3. Idiot scratch

    I wouldn't worry about it. The crappy rims will do that on their own. I have corrosion starting on 2 of my rims. 2016 w/ 90,000km on it. Very little snow over the last 2 years. In fact, I don't think that I actually needed 4 wheel drive yet in this truck.
  4. On my '09 it was the whole hub assembly including the ABS sensor.
  5. Put a jack under it, lift the front, grab tire @ 12 &6 and see if you can move it up and down. Simple takes <5 minutes. The front wheel bearings went on my '09 at about 50K.
  6. 285 or 275??

    Not much difference. I'd go with the (ever so slightly) taller tire. Using this Link, you can see that there isn't much difference.

    Right on. Thanks guys as I was wondering how much of a rub I'd get.
  8. Site Search Tool

    Ok, that search idea worked awesome. Thanks gain James. Seems that I'll be ordering some 275/65/20 BFG at the end of the month and have the possibility of a slight rub. I also came across this tire size comparison site: https://tiresize.com/comparison/
  9. Site Search Tool

    Thanks James. I'll give it a try.
  10. Hey everyone. I'm looking for tips on how to get the search function to work. I've tried searching for "maximum tire size with 2"rough country leveling kit" and changing some of the search parameters. Either I get no results or everything under the sun. No, I don't feel like reading through the 439 pages for the cumbersome 2014+ leveling kit post (which is so long it's ridiculous). I actually read through a bunch of it and never found what I was looking for. Lord knows I don't want to start a new thread on the topic as I'll get run out of town. I couldn't find a sticky regarding the search function, though I could have missed it. Thanks.

    Thanks guys. I figured that it was normal. Way too fun to stomp on it every now and again.
  12. Black Soot

    I have other gas powered vehicles; this one seems to leave a lot more black crap, that's all. If this thing had a carburetor, I'd just assume it's running rich.
  13. Hey guys, for those of you with the 6.2l, how dirty is your exhaust? I have harsh black soot at the tailpipe and out the condensation hole on the muffler. I always run top tier premium (92-94 octane) gas. So, is this pretty typical?
  14. Hey guys, I need to get a larger vehicle as I gained 2 kids recently. I am looking for something cheap and easy to work on and I found a '90 suburban on CL. Only problem is that it doesn't have the 3rd row seating. Does anyone have an idea of what years the 3rd row seat will interchange after 1990? I see a few '94 and up seats for sale, but have no idea if they would work. Thanks.
