    Instrument cluster DEAD

    I am at my limit of testing. Instrument cluster is Dead. The DIC sometimes comes on, but its all of the LED's that come on. Gauge do not sweep. The glow plug light, check engine light, and other lights come on, but nothing in the "logic" of the dash works. I have had the stepper motors...

    Allison Slip Yolk

    I have searched the internet and this forum. From what I find, there is not a slip yolk for the 2wd allison. Just wondering if Mike has any ideas on converting one to a slip yolk or if it is even possible. Would like to ditch the 2 piece driveshaft in my 06 if possible as I think that is...

    Injectors or just tips?

    Center section rebuild or replace

    Think the 04.5 may have an issue with the limited slip. Is it better to put new clutches in it for about $300 or look into something like a Trac Rite for $800.

    Mirror replacement

    Just wondering if there will be any issues with swapping the power folding small mirrors with the larger camper mirrors? Thinking about replacing the ones on the 06 for the camper mirrors. Did GM make a set of power folding mirrors like the fords have?

    EGR codes with bad glow plug module

    Got the dreaded Glow plug control module controller code (forgot the number). When the glow plug codes appeared, I noticed that I started getting EGR open performance and EGR closed performance codes. The 2 I remember are P0404 and P1404. Started thinking that either the finger stick or the...

    Which is better

    Which is better, Purchase an allison out of a wreck, and ship it over to Mike for a build up, or drop the one in my truck and send it over and weight? Also thought about taking a week off and driving it from Texas out to Mike and having him do the rebuild. Unless Mike knows of a place in...
