  1. It arrived yesterday and discovered some surprises Fuel Filter is at 1% Only 1 key and 1 Viper keyfob Viper Keyfob doesn't lock/unlock or remote start vehicle Steering Wheel Controls don't light Fuel Gauge moves super slow (not sure if its accurate) No way to lock/unlock doors GM Delco Radio (6 disc) doesn't support MP3 CDs Steps are right up against truck. Fuel Filter No big deal, ordered some AC Delco Fuel Filters on Amazon for $30/each. Pretty easy to change Key issue When I find a dealership that is open, I'll get two new keys cut and programmed if needed Keyfobs I may purchase two factory ones or just get a remote start put in that would replace keyfobs anyways. This will hopefully fix the lock/unlock issue as well. Steering Wheel Controls Not a major issue but it appears Dorman sells these on Amazon for about $100 for all four controls. Heard the cable is super short so replacement can be challenging. Fuel Gauge Internet said to run Fuel Cleaner through system for three fill up's and see if it cleans the float/sending unit which could be sticking. If issues still exist then take the cluster out and send to Circuit Board Medics for repair (have them change bulbs to LED while they have it.. might as well also send the auto temp cluster for LEDs and anything else while the cluster is apart. Radio This is something I don't want to change but will because with a lifted truck especially, I need to see if anyone is behind me. It's more difficult to judge distance. Also I love Apple Carplay feature so I can listen to Spotify. Radio now a days is difficult to find a station anymore near me since everyone seems to be on SirusXM Steps The steps on this truck are useless. They are tucked so close to the truck its more of a rock slider than a step. My plan is to move to AMP Research Power Steps which will help my wife greatly since she can't easily get in the truck due to the chemo. This is my priority right now and the Fuel Filter.
  2. Looking at a couple of upgrades that would make it more my truck and what I want. Ceramic Coating - DONE 3/24/2020 by Ceramic Pro Clay bar service (strips all the impurities that were on your car previously) Buff wax blackout of exterior trim 5 Layers of Ceramic Pro 9H 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro Light Applied as a Top Coat 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro 9H on Rims and Plastic 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro Rain on Front Side Windows and Windshield Lifetime Warranty Tow Mirrors GM OEM Tow Mirrors (boring.. no front facing turn signal) and run about $400 each (GM Part# 15904035 right & 15904034 left). Word on the reviews is they still shake just like an after market mirror does so not sure its worth the high price tag for GM Camper Mirrors. BOOST Auto Cab Lights Tonneau Cover Dark Tinted Windows

Curb Weight: 5,883 Lbs. When the LBZ was introduced to replace the LB7, the LB7’s injector issues had long been solved and the overheating issues associated with the LLY were a thing of the past. This engine’s beefier block casting, stronger connecting rods, higher pressure common-rail fuel system and updated ECM arguably made it the most powerful, drivable, reliable and tunable Duramax to date. Right out of the box, the LBZ produced 360hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. During this time frame (’06-‘07), these numbers not only outperformed the 6.0L Power Stroke’s 325hp and 570 lb-ft, but they beat out the 325hp and 610 lb-ft figures put up by the 5.9L Cummins as well. The LBZ was also the first Duramax to be coupled to the six-speed Allison 1000 automatic, which proved capable of handling more power than the five-speed version that preceded it. Diesel enthusiasts longingly remember the LBZ as the last Duramax built before the modern day emissions crunch kicked in, which spawned pollution control technology that reduced fuel economy and greatly hampered long-term engine durability. Arguably the most highly sought after Duramax ever built is the LBZ Duramax. More meat exists in the lower section (big end) of the rod than what you’ll find on LB7 The beefier I-beam style rods bring more mass to the rotating assembly Connecting rods were the strongest found in any Duramax up to that time GM cast slightly more webbing into the main bearing regions of the LBZ’s gray-iron block for added horsepower and torque Unfortunately nothing is perfect and in this case the LBZ pistons weren’t up to the task of surviving in higher horsepower applications. The cast-aluminum pistons are highly susceptible to cracking. The LBZ piston’s use of wrist pin bushings is also believed by many to be a contributing factor in OEM piston failure, along with a thinner wrist pin being utilized. When a piston lets go, you definitely know it, as it’s accompanied by a nasty miss, excessive blow-by and smoke out the exhaust.
