Got a letter from GM that my Def temp sensor could have an “offset in temperature” and cause check engine light and service emissions lights to come on. If I think my vehicle has this condition I can take it in for a repair under extended warranty coverage.


Yeahhhh.......I think I’m good


Got my Christmas bonus from work today so I decided to blow some of it and try aftermarket wheels round deux. Ordered from CustomOffsets this time. IF this don’t work out I give up and stock wheels will stay on the damn thing

I took an extra key and cut all the crap off the head of it and keep it in my wallet. Never a problem unless I lock the truck with the wallet in it also

Bro

I’ve been eying those deals between them and rimzoneonline since I need new tires ($2200) and they’re posting up deals for not much more for wheels AND tires. Only issue I see is the super off brand tires they offer and with having never run anything but Nittos on the truck (terra grapplers, mid grapplers, current Trail grapplers) so I’m a littler Leary..

I’d even go up to a 24” Maverick with a 305/35 but the load rating only being like 9800 combined has me cautious, though millions of people do it... and I say that for the times I pull a trailer (20’ with my Sierra) but it’s probably fine..

I’d definitely get some 12 wides, just unsure about the rubbers, even considering the street tire since it’s always on pavement.

Mizterwizard,
Thank you for your reply sir,

The big three ground was developed by guys who installed big honking sound systems in their trucks and wanted to be certain of a good ground.

The suggestions that I did was a #2 cable from left battery neg to the frame, a #2 cable from the engine block to the frame and a #2 from the alternator output to the pos post on the right battery. I have 2 newer Interstate batteries.

I guess my question would be that the bale connector has been off and on so many times, do you think that the pins and receivers have deformed enough to allow this inconsistent setting of codes? Do I need to disconnect and pull each receiver and squeeze them closed a little so they will be tight on the pins when connected?

What other method would you suggest?

Thank you sir!

Virtually no rust, so I am not real sure if it is a ground issue.

2012 Silverado Duramax:
Truck was washed and the interior had a clutter removal performed.

Ordered new wheels and tires, 24x12 with 305/35r24 Terras, when it happens the old setup will be up for sale.

Yeah I seriously considered ordering wheels and tires and going up to 20”s. Might do that in the future but for now I just ordered some cheap 17” Motos. If I was younger I’d have my truck more decked out but I just don’t care anymore about having a flashy ride. If I had the nicer stock wheels they’d stay but I don’t care much for these. My tires only have 8k and still look new (Mastercraft AXT) and I’m an epic tightwad so I just couldn’t bring myself to replace perfectly good tires

Look into Viper Smart Start, I can start my engine, lock, un-lock, GPS the location of my truck from anywhere on earth and possibly above earth with my cell phone and/or my Apple Watch. As long as I have cell service.

Finally got the H2 wheels installed with new General Grabber ATX 265's. Went from stock alloy 16's with 265's, didn't need to change my speedo reading. It's raining today so not going to get a nice shiny and clean truck pic yet. I went old school with the white letters (I'm 50). Center caps fit just fine.
