I just wish my truck would stay together and quit ****ing up. 18.2k miles and been in the shop 8 times since December '10. First 6 months was all good. After December, it's been in and out of the shop for all kinds of BS

Yeah that sucks sorry to hear that. I bought my 2010 used and it has 48k miles now, basically no real problems; had the third brake light leak that cost me ~$10 and 30 minutes to fix, and that's really the biggest problem I've had...

Oh sorry didn't realize it was different! Gotta hate when they first introduce options sometimes you get stuck in situations like you are in...

After one month with my 2500:
1. No lock-out hubs
2. No dump on the drivers seat, geting something out from behind the seat is a pain waiting on the electric seat to go forward
3. Grill does not go up with hood, makes it harder to get bugs out of the radiator
4. TPMS sucks cannot run what wears best for pressures

I also liked the way the grill was attached to the hood for cleaning the radiator....what do you mean about the tpms? I can run more pressure without any issues...

I always used chalk accros the tread then drove forward 20-30 feet then looked to see if the chalk had worn off evenly across the tread. Most times unloaded the front only needed 35-40 psi and the rear 30-35 psi to get even tread wear when empty. With TPMS I have to run 60 psi in the fron and 40 in the rear for "light load". The rear is the only one ajustable at 70 psi loaded 40 psi unloaded the front remains the same at 60 psi reguardless.

wow ^^ somethings wrong with your tpms then, the truck is "designed" to have like 37psi in the tires (according to the door label) and the tpms should not set a light until low 30's psi. I did the chalk trick as well and run about 45 psi all around.

Door label on my 2500 with load range E tires is 60psi front/70psi rear for loaded, and 60psi front/40psi rear unloaded. When changing to loaded from unloaded found out tonight the TPMS is off by 2psi. Digital tire guage read 70psi, TPMS read 68. Low pressure light would not shut off till TPMS read=70psi. Took 10 miles to get pressure built up.
