My transmission must be about to go out because it works perfect. Changing gears really smoothed it out.

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

Welp. Dealer has been in touch over the last two weeks...first they did all the recalls and a software update of sort. For some reason they thought the trans solenoid pack recall was going to fix the whine. Nope. Today they called me and said the truck needs a a new front trans pumps as "it's about ...

Re: Trans Issues - 2016

Thanks guys. No, I have not had the recall completed. I wonder if that is why I am having issues. I thought it was for solenoid connections? Not all of the 16 trucks got recalls and yes it was for the connectors. I doubt if that's your problem as it said it would cause the trans to go into limp mod...

Re: Caps/Toppers/camper shells

My truck has two OE side rail caps and the front bulkhead rail is bare metal. The Snugtop uses a dual bulb seal but the dealer squirted a small amount of silicone where the side rails end and the bare metal begins (at the front). There is also a rub shield that sits in front of the cap between the ...

Re: Caps/Toppers/camper shells

It isn't the glass, it is the lip (for lack of a better term) at the bottom of the glass. Snugtop and Leer have structures at the bottom of the glass that cover the top of the tailgate. ARE does also but there are tons of reports of ARE's breaking. On the caps that do not have the tailgate cover, w...

Guys.. Looking at "Caps" (as they are called in this part of Michigan). Looking at Leer vs A.R.E. Owned both in the past and seemed to like the Leer better. Although the Leer was a 2006 vintage and the ARE was a 2012 Vintage. I hated that the ARE drained water into the bed from the top corners of th...

The modules sound like junk, if they were working the computer would not know if you had one light or three. Those cubes only pull 1.4 amps each. The factory fog circuit will easily power 5 amps continuous. Once you have working resistors/decoders you can plug in any light (or combination) you want...

What did you wire up? A resistor as Reloaderguy explained above? How do you like the Squadrons?
