    In need of new tires

    I have ran lots of different MT tires, Toyo, Goodyear, Coopers, BFGs, etc. What I realized is that the VAST majority of the time, I would be stuck whether I had MTs or not. I get stuck regularly, and as we all know, these trucks are beyond worthless off road. It took me a little while to realize...

    Charging Tilt trailer battery while driving (Parallel quick connect?)

    I would go with a deep cycle battery. Marine batteries are usually a mix of starting and deep cycle use. In his application a deep cycle would be a better option.

    2009 better MPG

    Step 1, make sure truck is running properly with no codes and no issues. Step 2, Realize that HD trucks don’t get good mileage, especially lifted ones with big heavy wheels and tires. Doing mods that decrease MPG and then wondering why you get poor mileage is like kicking a sign post and...

    Charging Tilt trailer battery while driving (Parallel quick connect?)

    I have done a 350A AMG fuse and holder under the hood to a distribution block in back, and then fused each load according to what it needed. But if you are just doing the battery then I would think the 150A would be fine. The AMG fuses are nice, but if they blow you gotta have another one on...

    Charging Tilt trailer battery while driving (Parallel quick connect?)

    As far as a fuse, you absolutely must have a fuse on the positive cable as close as possible to the truck battery for the leads going to the back of your truck for your winch. I recommend a waterproof, resettable breaker. Also, I like to separate the large heavy use battery from the breakaway...

    Today's second question, Auto Dimming Mirror

    You’ll have to have the dome covered, not uncovered, and there is a sensor on the backside of the mirror.

    Today's second question, Auto Dimming Mirror

    Turn lights on, block light sensors on mirror, and I can’t remember if dash sensor has to be blocked, then shine light on sensor on the mirror side of the mirror.

    Sounds like you have a bad aspirator.

    2004 LB7 pump rub

    I’ve got a brand new Merchant Automotive pump rub kit in an unopened box I’d sell. Not sure where you are in MN, but if close that would save on shipping.

    2022 Duramax?

    Yeah, that’s what I was referring to. I remember reading years ago to NEVER leave your truck in the “ON” position without it running as it was very hard on some component and could “burn it out”, can’t remember what component it was though. Is that not the case on these trucks? It’s good to hear...

    2022 Duramax?

    Ha! I can understand the irritation of the noisy keys hanging from the column, that would drive me nuts! My issue with the push to start is there is no auxiliary position so you can listen to the radio or use the WiFi for more than 10 minutes without the truck shutting down. I want to be able...

    2022 Duramax?

    the new ones will get sideways too if you know how to get past the pesky stabilitrak lol! A good buddy of mine has been a tire guy for 40 years, a couple days ago his jaw dropped when he saw what my tires looked like with only 5,000 miles on the truck lol!

    2022 Duramax?

    I‘ve got a trailer on 95% of the time, and once underway I haven’t really had any issues, not as busy as I was afraid the 10-speed would be. The power is good and the tranny does fine. My issue primarily is at a stop sign. I’ll come to a near-stop, not a stop for two seconds kind of stop, but a...
