  1. bug/hood deflector

    3M film is the mat'l that I had applied to my truck.
  2. bug/hood deflector

    Any thoughts on a clear vinyl film? I had it on a previous truck & now my current HD. Also had the rockers/door steps done to prevent the paint scuffs.
  3. Not sure how the regs are nowadays but does the EPA & CARB require each engine, transmission & axle ratio combination be tested for emissions and/or fuel economy standard compliance? Or are the axle ratios not part of the equation? Anyone who lived thru the early 80s will remember the lousy axle choices back then. When I was ordering my '82 K15 (305 4 Spd OD AT) shortbox, the best ratio I could get was a 3.08 Had I wanted a 3.42, I had to order a long box.
  4. The issue I had w/ my GMT900 was that internally in the T/C a sensor failed giving me the service 4x4 alert, no stabilitrac, traction control or cruise control either. Apparently the dealer service dept cleaned the sensor, and 'opened' the parameters of the sensor.
  5. And then what happens to Ford's sales?
  6. Why did this GMC 2500 catch fire?

    Link is missing Im pretty sure a tire iron or wheel wrench wouldve 'opened' the vehicle. Let us know if the owner is able to collect from the ins' company.
  7. Arent. Well Toyota & Nissan haven't tried so why would Musk be any better?
  8. I was referring to the interior. Try finding a truck on a lot w/o carpetting. And no I don't want a 1/2 ton that looks like it came from a DOT auction.
  9. I think if you read thru the thread, there is an aftermarket shop that rebuilds these steering boxes.
  10. No different than the 'holier than thou' types that feel the need to comment on how much it must cost to fill my truck. I usually reply while looking @ their 'econobox', "Must be awfully difficult to haul any lumber with your car". That shuts them up pretty quickly.
  11. Well w/ my '94 (8' box) I added 2 leaves on each side. Oh & it had the 'vaunted' Z71 Pkg (rolling my eyes).
  12. Does the Max Tow Pkg, add much to the towing capacity of the base 1/2 ton or is it just a band aid for owners that tow occasionally? Seeing how my '94 1/2 ton 'settled' w/ a load of firewood in it, made the decision to go to a 3/4 ton pretty easy when I bought my next truck. In the old days a 1/2 ton was a 1/2 ton. Now they're a glorified Impala w/ a box.
  13. I've always ordered my trucks (since '81), but have noticed in recent years the ordering/optioning process has become stupid. Sometimes I wonder if the people behind the scenes really know how people use trucks.
  14. Be aware that if you have aftermarket (Schrader) TPMS sensors, GM's tool won't be able to relearn the sensor locations. (I learned the hard way)
