  1. I have close to 6000 miles on mine. The trucks to go through a Regen mode so clean out the DPF. I have never seen a light on the dash telling me it is doing a cycle. I have driven the truck normal when I think it is running and have turned it off with no issue. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. I would guess so, the duratracs are noisy. Plan on putting some all terrain tires on in the spring. Hoping for less nose I and bring the mpg back up Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks, I will watch out for that. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. Possibly, so hard to tell on these trucks, so quite and can't even smell anything if it is windy ( which it was). I don't think there was any issues but thought it was interesting. I'm a newbie in the diesel ownership world. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Noticed today after sitting idling for a long time as I was in and out working outside that when I got back in the truck to drive it had a lot more exhaust coming out the back then normal, even compared to other cold days I've driven. Cleared back up after a minute or two, just curious if there was a build up of exhaust from idling for so long or what the deal was. Temp was around 10 degrees. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  6. I purchased a RST with the Duramax and just added my own height to the truck to match a TB. Added a 2" front level with a 2" rear block. Then added 33" duratracs. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  7. Where are you located? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. #2 is also ULSD. Up here there are a few different kinds of diesel available, all safe for use. #1, #2, blended, and Cenex up here also has a few special blends of their own. Difference between them are gelling points, cetane ratings, additives, and if course cost Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. I have some to the conclusion #1 diesel drops mileage 3-4 compared to #2 and larger more aggressive tires takes about the same off. Trying to run a 50/50 blend now and that seems to be a bit better so far. Last weekend driving for Christmas went a little over 300 miles round trip. Was running straight #1 with a speed of 70-80 and probably around 40 total minutes just idling letting the truck warm up before I load my daughter (3 separate times). On the tank still averaged 20 mpg. Switch that to #2 diesel and I see that going to 23-24 pretty easy Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. Did some towing today. Diesel did very well for the little time I was hooked up. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. Will be driving for Christmas over the next few days and will report back with mileage. Here is my truck today hauling my tractor around, had it squatting a little Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  12. Granted mine is not a true trail boss, my pickup has the same stance with a 2" level and 2" rear block and I do have a little larger your with the 275/70/18. Did a few hundred miles this weekend and with speeds around 67 I was getting 25 mpg and speeds at 80 was getting around 18. Now this is according to the DIC and I know my speedo is about 3 mph low. (Speeds listed where according to speedometer) Truck was also running #1 fuel as temps are getting cold here. Should note that during this trip there where always heavy crosswinds, it if North Dakota after all. Was expecting a bit more, may end up switching to a lighter tire come spring and I know with #2 fuel in driving around town with a lot of idling due to winter weather I have been averaging 22 which I am appreciating. Have about 4500 miles in my truck. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. Truck sat outside for about 11 hours last night when it was negative 4. Started with zero issue. Had #1 fuel in it Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. Haven't had any issues yet with the colder weather, granted its only been in the high teens/ low 20s. As we role though winter I expect it to be tested but don't foresee any issues. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  15. Have just over 4000 miles on my 3.0L now. Still has been a great engine/tranny combo. Still impressed by the power when I get on it. Still averaging about 22.5 with all in town driving and a lot of idling with the colder and snowier weather. That is with my larger duratracs. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
