    Anyone have experience with Bak Revolver x4s

    I originally looked at the Bak....I ended up with the RetraxOne MX (polycarbonite), not the aluminum. It is fairly durable and the retrax cannisters are a bit smaller than other competitors. I have no complaints with it. But, if you have your heart set on aluminum, that is your choice.

    Poorman's camera mirror.......

    No, it straps over the stock mirror. Yes, you can turn it off completely and it also functions as a wider mirror. Even stranger, you can split screen the forward camera with the back camera on the display too. That one is too weird to keep up for long. I don't drive it much lately but I will...

    Poorman's camera mirror.......

    I will post a picture of the view when the camera exposure is not too high. Wirh human eyesight, it looks good, bright enough to be usable in the daytime, it works decent in the dark too.

    Poorman's camera mirror.......

    I've been meaning to get this done and finally, on my birthday I get it done. Been using cigarette lighter power for a bit and decided it was time to hardwire and place the rear camera. I used an Azdome PG17, which also includes a rear camera with cabling as well. It straps to the stock rear...

    Excessive oil consumption?

    I had to reply to my own post......... I posted on youtube on a video "known 3.0l duramax issues", he replied to my comment (much like above) and he mentioned that it seemed like alot more than oil burning. He had mentioned that GM says that 1qt per 2k miles is acceptable, unloaded, not towing...

    Ford does not need a small Diesel when they have those Ecoboosts, they really are decent engines.....

    I voted tint, but I also removed most of the letter badging, except for the duramax letters on the hood.

    Mobil 1 oil

    From time to time, if you have a local BJ's box store, I have picked up the 5qt bottles at a decent price (Mobile 1 0w20). Walmart has also had boxes of 0w20 (carboard box with bag inside) it is 12qts.

    [UPDATE] GM putting hold on 3.0L Duramax for 22 year models through 2021

    I am also interested if that increases the resale value for previous year 3.0 equipped 1500's.

    Excessive oil consumption?

    Ironically, this happened to me yesterday. Went into limp mode (reduced performance mode), while merging into traffic. So, there was no clear indication of anything from the status message (just the reduced mode). After finishing up my errands, I limped home, plugged in my Bluedriver and it put...

    Accessories and Add Ons?

    I did intend to put up a youtube video and had notes on bull bar (disassembly / reassembly steps). The Tyger instructions actually mention removing that motorized louver in the lower part of the front end (I couldn't part with it), but the is a way to retain it...... for the 3.0 you do have to...

    Excessive oil consumption?

    Prior to my first oil change, it was noticeably low. Been checking after the first and has not been as bad though.
