  1. I am currently in the market for a camper and I am wondering how much weight I can tow. I have 2019 Silverado 1500 RST 5.3 V8 crew cab short bed. From what I can find online I should be “okay”, but really wanted some feedback from those of you that have a similar setup. I am aware the 2500 is the ideal setup, but that will be down the line a bit for me. Truck Trailering Info: GVWR 7100lbs GCWR 15000lbs GAWR RR 3800lbs Max Payload 1819lbs Max Tongue Weight 960lbs Curb Weight 5281lbs The camper I am looking at has a d
  2. I'm currently looking at these mirrors for an 07 GMC 2500HD Classic here: http://monsterautoparts.com/GMC/SIERRA/gmc_sierra_towing_mirrors_telescopic.htm Item1339-0010B because its the pair. They're exactly what I want: Power mirror, heated and turn signal BUT its manual telescoping. Is there any place I can get all that with power telescoping? I'm kind of at a loss of where to look since the ones I had bookmarked seem to have gone missing. I just have standard mirrors now so the next question I'm asking is, what else does it seem I would need to install these? Am I just not looking hard e
  3. Hello everyone! I just recently purchased a 2021 Sierra 1500 3.0L which will mainly be used to tow my center console around to local lakes and to Florida a couple times a year. I did NOT get the max trailering package mainly due to a mix up and having to switch trucks because someone purchased the one I went to look at and I didn't notice (yeah). My boat is a 24' center console and weights about 2500lbs, plus around 800lbs for the engine, around 800lbs for fuel (105gal tank) and the trailer. My best guess is between 4,500-5,500lbs. When towing to Florida the rear end sagged quit a
  4. So the Chevrolet owners manual says to not tow a 4 x 4 vehicle with a single speed transfer case with “any“ wheels on the ground. It says to use a flatbed tow truck only. I will always do what Chevy says, as to not void my warranty. But, I can’t conceptually understand in my brain why I can’t tow my truck in 2-wheel drive with the rear wheels lifted off the ground and the front wheels on the pavement rolling. As long as my four-wheel-drive is not engaged, why would my front wheels do any damage to the vehicle? From my understanding, when the vehicle is in 2 Wheel Dr., the front differential is
  5. For sale i have OEM Tow Mirrors DQS takeoffs from a 2014 GMC Sierra. I have additional pictures upon request, doesn’t let me upload on here. I’m asking for $500 shipped or local pickup in Dallas, Tx
  6. I'm confused about what trucks are good for towing. Is there a BASIC summary of whether a 1/2, 3/4 1 ton etc is good for towing as to what limit is the GVWR of each rated truck. I know there are other factors to consider. I'm looking for just a basic starting point if there is such a thing. I want to tow around either a TT or 5th wheel between 26 to 30 ft. Of course different weight ratings. Example what is the maximum tow for a 3/4 ton. Ideally, get more truck than needed. Should I start looking at a 3/4 ton and then a 1 ton? What is the max that a 1/2 ton should even be considered. I
  7. I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I
  8. I have a set of Trail Ridge tow mirrors for 2014+ for sale (Power adjust, heated, turn signal). They are in great shape and everything works, No scratches. Only had these on my truck for about 6 months, however decided I liked the smaller regular color matched dl8 mirrors I originally had and went back to them. Asking $150.
  9. Hey All, New to the forum. Few questions. There is a truck I am interested in and unfortunately I cannot rely on the sales person. Here are the build details from the sticker. What I am curious about is, is this trailering package also known as the "Max Towing Package" ? Reason I ask is the hitch is a GM V-5 which is rated at 12,000/1,200. The owners manual also says the following... 1500 4x4 crew cab short bed 5.3L V8 - 3.42 - MTW 9,100 - GCWR 15,000 5.3L V8 with 8-speed Auto and Enhanced Towing package - 3.42 - MTW 10,700 - GCWR 16,700 5.3L V8 - 3
  10. Hi guys, first time poster here. If I'm in the wrong section mods please let me know! About 2 weeks ago I bought a 2018 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4x4, used with 12k miles. It has the tow package. I absolutely love the truck, it's great, and other Chevy owners seem super nice so far! My Chevy has all the features of the tow package, including the chrome grille, trailer brake, pre-installed hitch, etc. but instead of the tow mirrors it has regular mirrors. Based on my research they are the "DL3" mirrors (heated, auto folding, etc.) but further research tells me that it should be
  11. Hello How it going? I wanted post and ask some questions as along the way and see if I am crazy enough to upgrade and discuss about modifying a stock GMC 2016 4x4 2500HD 6.0L Gas suspension system. The truck needed a nice smooth riding stability control system on it's suspension system and along it needed to takes more weight load carrying capacity controls from major loads when towing big loads from over hauling trailers. Plus even on it's no-loads capacity as well when you need to drive on a everyday needs in all conditions from all driving ability and keep safe from going out of c
  12. Here’s my 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4x4. Got a 6 inch Trailmaster lift with 24 inch replicas and 37 inch rbps. Should I do a gear change? If so, what?
  13. Ok I have a question on the 6.2L Max Tow Package half ton trucks. I know they came with the upgraded rear end at 9.76" gear ring and 3.42 gear ratio. So knowing the front has to be 3.42, what size ring gear is in the front in the IFS housing? Also has anyone ever changed out the front IFS to say oh a Spidertrax 9" or a Currie 9"? And even a swap for the rear as well. Buying the 6.2 max tow package for a undisclosed reason so thats why Im needing to know the front specs if anyone has any info on it. Thanks in advance. OH also if you have any pics as well that would be great to.
  14. what do you guys think? I installed a reman transmission on my 2013 gmc 2500 hd. My tow haul and manual shift does not work now. The orange wire is not the problem i have another truck same model i swapped the tow haul lever over from. Before i swapped i verified my donor trucks tow haul lever worked and installed it on my problem truck just to be sure. I know my manual shift worked prior to the transmission installation because the only way i could drive it was manually shifting 1-3. could this be an internal issue with the transmission or tcm? I do have a tpms light on and traction control
  15. Long and short of it.... Sold my Ram 3500 for a Sierra 1500 and I had just bought a B&W Tow and Stow hitch Class V for 2 1/2 in receiver with 7 1/2 in drop/rise and 3 way ball in January. Only used it one time when I moved from Whidbey Island to Idaho in Feb. I did not plan on selling the dually but things happen. If anyone is in a similar situation where they have a Class IV but need a Class V and want a swap, let me know.... Thanks Greg
  16. Hello everyone, I just purchased 2016 1500 and the wagon symbol is missing for my tow haul. Does anyone have any idea of where I can get a replacement? thanks, I attached a pic of the symbol that I need
  17. As stated in the title, has anyone either painted or powder-coated their front Tow Hooks? I just had all my Chrome done Satin Black and now these hooks are MUCH more visible to me than they were before... I also thought I had read somewhere (but couldn't find again when I searched) that the Tow Hooks are quite a PITA to remove on the GMC Sierra/Sierra Denali... can anyone confirm if this is the case?? Thanks!
  18. I have 2014 Silverado 4 wheel drive. Tried towing it behind motor home with blue ox hitch and noticed with transfer case in neutral steering wheel did not unlock while in park. If I unlock ignition battery runs down. Any help, please
  19. Newer user to this forum, though I have been on others in the past... I am getting different opinions from different family and friends- many seem to contradict each other. So I thought I would ask this community for thoughts. The wife and I have recently purchased, used from friends, a new camper. The camper is a 30 foot Coachman Catalina (1997). The book weight of this trailer says 5,100lbs and includes trailer brakes. I am planning to haul with my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500. Specs on the truck include; 4x4, crew cab, max trailer package (5.3 KDL HD Cooling Package, trailer brake harne
  20. Hello everyone! I have just successfully upgraded from standard DL8 mirrors(heated and power adjust), to aftermarket tow mirrors from eBay. My truck is a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE Double Cab, Standard Box After much thinking about whether I really wanted to go with the look of tow mirrors and also how I would make it work knowing that they wouldn't be plug and play, I bit the bullet. I looked all around for some tow mirrors that I would be happy with. I found multiple listings on eBay for a really low price ranging from $195-220. I picked out a set that had a blacked out clearance light
  21. Just took off these mirrors from my 14 slt. Power everything w/ powerfold, puddle lights, turn signal. Chrome cap asking $275. Text me at 717-629-8442 for quicker response thanks!
  22. I recently installed some aftermarket Tor mirrors on an 03 and the glass vibrates/shakes when driving on normal roads and on the highway. I was thinking about putting some left over Sound deadening on the back of the glass, as a way to mass load them to slow the shaking. I don't really mind the shaking too much but if I already have something that will help with it, it's worth a shot!? What are your thought about this?
  23. Hello- I'm new here to this forum and I hope this is the correct place to post this item. I just purchased a new 2500 HD Silverado to replace my '02 model. It has the black trailering mirrors. Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to put the chrome cap on the top and bottom of these mirrors or if I would need to look into replacing the entire assembly (spendy). Seems like it should be possible but I can't seem to find any information. Thanks in advance, Brian
  24. I am at a complete loss on how to do this. 2009 Tahoe. I need to get the tow hooks off to install the brackets for a Ranch Hand bumper. I can not get the the tow hooks off. The passenger side has the one bolt that I can not get to in any way, and even if I could, the nut securing it is inside the frame behind the tow hook. Same goes for the other side, can't get to the nut on the front left side of the frame. I have breaker bars, socket sets, etc, but no impact. No tutorials on youtube, can't find anything here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
