RE: Straight-line weight distribution system

I had mine on two separate trailers. Really works well. Simple set up really. Drill and mount as they say and then just drive perfectly straight on flat ground and stop and loosen the two big jam nuts and tap the cams so they're center in the bars and then tighten them up. After many miles you will flip the cams over due to wear on the cams. People over react on the set up. Really prett easy.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

I would stay far away from any small diesel. They are problematic and not worth the aggravation. This coming from a diesel tech. Why?

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

I will order exactly what I want when I'm ready but I wanted to check them out. My 2019 1500 works great but my last 4 trucks were 3/4 ton and I really like the feel of a 3/4 ton truck. So tell me what is the better FEEL of a 3/4 ton over a one ton? I would rather have that FEELING when towing than when daily driving. Never owned a one ton but I suspect that its close to a 3/4 ton since they are nearly the same truck

“Why, son, you can tow any travel trailer with a Chevy 1500!” Son? Only with an Eco boost

No 3/4 ton trucks.

So I went by Auto Nation Chevrolet yesterday to look at the 2021 chevy 3/4 ton trucks. They didn't have one 3/4 ton on the lot. Not one 2020 or 2021 gas or diesel. They had around 7 or 8 1500s there. When I bought my 2019 a little over a year ago, they had probably 200 or more trucks. Kind of crazy.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

Looks like Ford spanked GM pretty good with truck sales. I'd bet that the 6 speed alone was one of the reasons Ford did better. I just looked for that info, where did you get it? All 2020 info i find is from october and says gm sells a few more trucks then ford. Gosh, I can not find where I read that. I was just bliping through some articles and I read that they had a poor 3rd quarter. Maybe untrue and I retract that if not. But I'm sure their sales of that truck would be better with the 10 speed. Thanks for all the input.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

I guess I should mention that most of my towing is in the Arizona mountains with many 6-7% grades.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

I don't get the 10 speed OCD discussions. I drive a different truck every day at work, all 3 US flavors and probably almost every combination at one time or another. Unless your always in Flatlands running empty/not towing and going for squeezing every last drop for fuel mileage, all those extra gears are wasted fluff. In hill country loaded or towing you'll never be up in them much if at all and it does not matter what is in front of the tranny. More gears = more heat and more parts to wear. I agree on most of what you are saying but the 10 speed has 7 gears before it hits the overdrives. I went from a 6.0 4 speed to my 5.3 8 speed and its always got the right gear for towing. So I would rather have the 10 than the 6 but if its not available then I may end up with the 6 speed. It has 4 gears before the 2 over drives.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

Chevy ain't letting Ford run away. 6.6 is a great engine and 10sp coming. I would think that but, its two years now with the 6 speed.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

Wait for the 10 speed transmission and 4.10 rear gears. I don't think they'll ever go back to a 4.10 gear since even the 6 speed has a 4.030 1st gear as compared to the 4L80 with a 2.4 1st gear that needed a 4.10

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

Would have to wait and hope for a 2022. May end up doing that.But, I'd bet that six is about as reliable as they come.

Another 6.6 gas question

I've really been curious about this engine. I know they should have put the ten speed with it but I'd bet the six speed works pretty good. I don't see any indications that the ten will be hooked to it at least through 2021. I'm thinking by now there would be a number of folks here running this engine. So what do you think? How's the power and mileage. I don't really care if you've had the 6.o since I've had a couple. Just digging for any info on the new 6.6. Thanks!

RE: Rancho Shocks

The Ranchos on my 2019 Z71 are junk as far as I'm concerned. I have always used Bilsteins

RE: Suspension hardware

At the 2 minute mark, he is tightening the bolt with an impact. I see him using the impact wrench on the nut and holding the bolt head in place with an open end wrench. Guess I was looking at it wrong but I still don't know why he would do this job with out the bushings, in fact the grease isn't going stay put. Might keep it from squeaking.

RE: Suspension hardware

"Wet" bolt replacement video. No new bushings. Installation of the Redline Wet Equalizer Bolt - etrailer.com You could tell that the bushings were shot in that video. They should have been replaced and also the bolts are made to be drawn into the shackles and should not have been tightened at the bold head. Not a very professional install job there. Yes, the bushings should have been replaced, but he did not turn the bolt head. At the 2 minute mark, he is tightening the bolt with an impact.

RE: Suspension hardware

Your OEM set-up has lasted 18 years. Stick with the know quality. I've only had this trailer 4 months so I don't know if they've been replaced. But I need piece of mind

RE: Suspension hardware

Too vague ! What vehicle ? Which bolts/bushings ? Polyurethane bushing last a long time and will not seize to a bolt like a rubber bushing with a metal insert. As you can see in my signature I have a 22 ft travel trailer and I'm clearly asking about the spring bushing/hardware. Thank you.
