Shim? He usually goes by Frosted_Ferret on the net. I was surprised he didn't sign up here under that name.

Congrats Greatroadrat! If I had to do it all over again, I'd started with the grandkids and skipped the kids

Good to see you Saturday - My uncle keeps having rotten luck with his GM vehicles also. I've had 5 ford trucks, EXP, Explorer, Focus and a Fusion and not one real issue. The one truck was killed in a head-on just shy of 300k, I'll stick with the guys with the blue oval.

I'm kicking myself in the ass for buying a Silverado this time. Most problematic, cheapest made truck I have owned. I like the power the 6.0 has and it is just a little more comfortable than the ford or dodge, otherwise it sucks. GM LAN is the dumbest electrical system ever.

My next truck will be an F-250 with the 6.2. Luckily, I drive about 50k miles a year, so I only have to put up with the chevy for about another year.

Any of you have a couple of these I can borrow for a couple weeks? I think they have to be 128's but I'm willing to try anything at the moment.

I had a bunch of hand me down Fords before I got smart and tried a Chrysler. Now I wouldn't take a free ford unless I could turn around and sell it for a Dodge. My 2500 is not easy on gas but it's never left me stranded, will haul a$$ and is comfortable. If I buy another truck it will be a 2500 with a Cumins. The Hemi is good when weight is all you're fighting, but the toy hauler takes third gear going up hill to maintain highway speeds. The diesels just power thru with all the torque.

I've had my fill of electronic diesels. I fought my 01 diesel dodge for 3 weeks trying to diagnose a no start. If I ever need big power again, I'm going to go to a F-650 with a 12v cummins or other mechanical diesel.

I still have several of these if you need some for parts. I liked them but then I still watch black and white TV.

You must have been pissed when the Andy Griffith show switched to color in the sixth season.
