  1. Coming from a tuned 2010 6.2L, you certainly can feel the difference when you get on it, but what I like the most is the diesel tourqe down low. I have come to appreciate being able to hit the gas at low RPM and it just goes compared to the down shifts and screaming RPM that you get with the gas engine. But there are definitely days I miss that screaming 6.2L at 4k+ RPM Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. Have about 3200 miles on mine now, still Loving the power, sound, and mileage. Granted my mileage did take a hit when I put larger duratracs on. Current tank im on I'm averaging close to 21 with a good amount of idling and short trips. Have no problem getting over 23 with a little longer city trips and less idling time. Now before the duratracs I was averaging 26-27 only on town so I may switch out to a set of Summer tires come spring. I have not towed anything larger than a pontoon for longer than a few miles so can't comment there. For me in the summer months I put a lot of city miles on in the construction industry so the money saved was an easy choice. Diesel around here is 2.80 which is about 30 cents more expensive than regular and 30 cents cheaper than premium. From my old 6.2 which required premium there is a pretty significant cost savings per mile. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. I guess I have not tried tow haul mode yet, always looked for a button or switch. Good to know! Guess I was wrong, thanks! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. No, the half ton was built for mileage, not towing. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Just put duratracs on my RST and was surprised how well they did on our first blizzard in the ice and deep snow Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  7. I'm guessing it has something to do with trim levels between LT and RST. Don't the LTs have a different leaf spring? My Duramax is an RST has a tow rating of over 9000 according to the door Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. Have about 2600 miles on mine now, mileage on the city is down as I installed a leveling kit and larger 275/70/18 duratracs. Still averaging 22-24 in town compared to around 27-28 before. Will probably switch to a lighter tire come spring again to gain that mileage back. Havnt been on the highway yet with the new tires but will imaging that will drop by a few MPGs as well Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. I have noticed mine pausing for a second or two to allow the plugs to warm up but really not an issue Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. Just put 275/70/18 duratracs on my RST instead of the factory 265s that came on it. Looks like my speedo is off by about 2 MPH. How much will that throw off my calculated mileage on my truck? I understand of losing a few MPGs from the bigger/ heavier tire but it seems that my mileage has really tanked. Havnt driven enough for a hand calculated test yet. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm coming from a 2010 6.2L and I will say that I do not miss the gas motor. Passing power is great and much more instant which I think is a combination of the diesel tourqe an the 10 speed. I can try and get a video later today. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  12. Almost pulled the trigger on those right away but figured to let the funds replenish a bit first after just buying the truck. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. Welcome to the club! I also just added a leveling kit and larger tires, curious to see what it does to mileage. Your even seeing better numbers than I have on the highway, granted it's never not windy here in North Dakota Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. Will get some better picks soon, but had a 2" level installed then picked up a set of 275/70/18 duratracs. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  15. Few shots from tonight Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
