Default Hey Reindl Powerboats

I here ya on the duramax. GM hear our pain.!

My 96 has 110,000 miles on it, i'm hoping she'll make it till GM finally decides to step up to the plate. I can't handle 8 mpg.

This is for WIGGINOUT! I replaced the factory hitch with a heavy duty 12,000 lb capacity hitch. The factory hitch is only rated for 5,000 capacity, unless you have an equilizer hitch set-up. Also, make sure the slide-in part (I don't know what that is called) is solid steel, as well as a strong ball. If you do these 3 things, you will never have to worry about a hitch related problem. Good luck!
