RE: Half ton towing

Glad to see everyone is doing about the same! These threads are fun but pretty much just fall into a debacle of "no you can't" or "yes you can One thing is certain, there are talkers, keyboard warriors, and statisticians and then there are this who go out and DO. Sounds like the old xyz round is superior to the other xyz round. There are those who talk ballistics and those who go out and put meat on the table in the field. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's Guys. https://i.imgur.com/hKFpmOQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/hYIzTOal.jpg

RE: which gooseneck ball?

So, this is just me personally, but there is another Made in the USA gooseneck hitch option that doesn't include levers and springs under the bed. It's called a DropNLock. I like the design. Here is the link to their product page DropNLock The Anderson hitch would be compatable with this hitch as well as the Demco Recon Demco Recon The PullRite Superlite is a direct competitor of the Anderson and IMHO a MUCH better design. Here is the link to this product PullRite Superlite Have a good day! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Tow capabilities

If you're breaking things on a regular basis, wouldn't that be an indication that the tow vehicle is NOT suitable for what you're using it to pull? I'm all for pushing the numbers but things should not be breaking. Most GM trucks of this era break motor mounts relatively often. We’ve changed them for others too. Many of these trucks with 130k plus a thousand probably have broken motor mounts. But yea, my friends are breaking way too often. Chinamart is to blame. Not his Suburban. Thanks!

RE: Tow capabilities

Sure thing. Just tow slow and deliberate. If you saw what my buddy tows “all the time” with his 2011 Suburban it would make many keyboards melt here. ;) We are getting pretty good at replacing motor mounts. I suppose you will to. Drivers side motor mounts are weak on these trucks and I guess yours is probably broke right now if you are over 130k miles OR tow heavy often. Yea, I swore mine wasn’t broke either. I was wrong. Have fun, set the hitch up right. Firm up the tires, get better shocks and struts and enjoy the ride. Dialed in set up with my Zinger and my 2011 Tahoe that “can’t tow nothing” https://i.imgur.com/af7cG7Rl.jpg WD hitch not set up right at all on this pic https://i.imgur.com/oGVvW4bl.jpg Thanks!

RE: Transmission cooler options

Good post. I have a 2011 Tahoe without the factory external trans cooler. I added a 40K transmission cooler plumbed after the factory in radiator cooler. I’ve been thinking about adding a thermostat between the radiator cooler and the external trans cooler. I’ve ran it for 40k miles without the thermostat but my trans only gets to about 140° when not towing. My hottest temp while towing on a 95° day was 198° In the middle of the day in traffic. It stayed there for about 5 minutes and went back down to its normal towing temp around 180°. Love towing with my Tahoe. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Tuner like “5 Star Tune “

I’ve got a blown 2.0 Ecoboost sitting in my garage that my son “tuned”. Broke the piston. My advice for what it’s worth is don’t tune it unless you are willing to do an out of warranty engine replacement. Jeremiah

RE: Ford as a tow vehicle

My 2011 Tahoe was one of the early AFM engines and the only time I notice it is when I am driving between 29-35mph and the thing keeps switching all the time. While towing or at any other speed it is totally imperceptible. I agree. Something is wrong. The F150 will fix the Chevy problem. Just research the issues. Sometimes the Devil you know….

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

I’m still buying VHS tapes and cassettes. Lots of old content you can’t get any other way. Plus it doesn’t disappear from the digital library magically. As for camping I just download some shows and movies to my iPad and connect it to the TV. Thanks, Jeremiah.

RE: Chevy Tahoe 5.3L as tow vehicle

An oversized tranny cooler is a good idea and will have it installed before I tow anything. Any particular brand that works with Tahoe? They are kind of universal. I used a large Hayden trans cooler and a Hayden install kit from O’Reiley auto parts. Thanks! Jeremiah
