RE: Big Three road tests

Everyone of the trucks has it's strong points and it's weaker (comparative) points. Each buyer makes a judgement call on which of those points is important to HIM for the way (S)HE will use the vehicle. Over the years I have bought 3 "big" diesel trucks, and I shopped all brands with an open mind each time. Shopping by name badge just makes no sense to me. If you do that, then you've let the TV commercials do your thinking for you, or "I drive 'cuz my Daddy always did." Blind stupidity. I've decided that if I could buy the "perfect" truck, it would have a Cummins diesel, GM running gear/suspension, Ford cabin, and an Allison transmission. But nobody is building that truck, so I just research each time that I need a new one, based on MY NEEDS, not of which one impressed a magazine flunky.

Wow! You guys act like somebody called your sister a hooker. They're just stupid trucks, not a religion! Sorry I posted the link.

RE: Hankook tires

Follow up: Put these tires on last fall, lot's of miles on them, about 6,000 of that towing. Seem excellent. Smooth rolling, good handling, not showing any significant wear at this point.

Chev integrated brake controller problem (intermittent)

I have a 2008 Chev with the integrated trailer brake controller option. The thing is flaky. Sometimes (even with no trailer connected) it gives me a DIC message to "Service Trailer Brake System". When connected to a trailer, sometimes it will fail to see the trailer. Or sometimes it will work fine until I stop the engine, then it will fail to see the trailer connected when I restart. I have checked all the connections up and down the food chain, and they all seem fine. The trailer brake circuit checks out good, with proper grounds and proper resistance value.

RE: Diesel vs gas......................

that's what i will be doing and after the results come back decide on what fluids to change out. In driving the truck, i have gassers now, it rides good, no funny smells , power seems good, no smoking when running over all it looks in good shape for the age. Just have to go with my gut and my time spent under the truck with flashlight looking for grease, oil leaks etc and it looked fine .front to back from below.. wish me luck and i am a member of the diesel club. :) I think you made a good choice.
