HEADLIGHT ISSUES ?
Damn...just when I thought I'd corrected everything on my rolling "do-it-yourself" kit.....now I have to worry about headlight failure ?
Can you guys help me out and tell me at approx. what age & mileage you guys incurred failure that resulted in your having to change headlight bulbs?
Is this still another example of GM reducing the quality of its products ?
The headlights my truck came with when I bought it appear to be orig., best as I am able to determine the bulbs have not been touched.
On long trips way way out in the boonies, they SEEM pretty damn bright....and I try and remember to turn them off during the day.
From what you guys are telling me, sounds like I'd better carry some spare bulbs with me?
Damn..in the old days, the "sealed beams" seemed to last forever-I don't recall feeling the need to carry spares then.
Is this progress....? Yes, what my truck came with are much much brighter than the sealed beams of my youth.....………….but reliability? Progress ?
2013 3500 long bed crew cab. Purchased at approx. 80,000; now have 91,000, convert to CP3. DPF "triggerd" a limp mode, so was cut out of the vehicle & cleaned by a DPF cleaning co., on re-installation, everything back to normal. Would never ever think of something as nasty and as anti bunny wabbet as a full-delete...after all..dosnt everyone like the fun & excitement of being stuck by the side of a Interstate in the ran while towing when one's truck's computer decides to go into "limp mode"...?.
