What mods have you done?

My 99' Ram 1500 with 360, 4X4 Longbed Reg. Cab., towed my boat well. Insurance issues forced me to what I have now. The boat and trailer weight exceeded the truck's factory two rating, so if I'd been in an accident towing, my insurance was void. MOST policys are this way. Everyone should check the "fine print" and see. My insurance agent warned me that this was a way that insurance companies are getting around having to pay claims. And it happens more than you even want to know.

TranSynD for Allisons... I have an full line Allison/Mack dealer/service center a couple miles away.
I buy genuine Allison filters filters for $6.70 apiece.

If you haven't changed the "grape juice" out in the diffs...it's time. Changed my rear @ 3K after my first 1000 mile 10K tow, and will change the front this spring after it's first winter of 4WD/plowing.

If 'ya drive 'em hard or work 'em hard...lube maintenence is your friend.

Rippem,you'd be surprized how many Duramax owners haven't heard about putting the right fluid in their trans(getting rid of the crap gm put in). I'm in the transmission repair business and we still haven't seen any duramaxes come in for repair but often when i'm repairing somebodys spare work truck they also have a duramax and i try to inform them. Also,alot of these guys mistakenly think they have a 100K mile drivetrain warranty that covers the transmission and t-case,axles etc when actually if they took the time to read their invoice or owners manual they would see the extended warranty only covers MAJOR engine components and NOTHING else,Smitty

Default Re: tow vehicles

exactly, the Allison's done with warranty @ 36K/months. Mostly because of the cheap dino fluid cost-down by GM.

and the 4 qt. shallower pan that GM insists on that trans. because of already least in class ground clearance.
