Also do you disable your TC when driving? As soon as I crank my truck I disable TC and turn on the tow/haul.
Candy why do you always disable the TC and turn on the tow/haul? Does the tow/haul just keep the eco from kicking in?

I did that bc I had stock gears. The TC acts all weird bc it constantly thinks your tires are slipping with the bigger tires and the ecu not being programmed thinks it's turning 33" tires. The tow/haul felt peppier and held the shifts longer. Made lugging my non geared truck with heavy meats a tad easier!

Now with 4.56s I just slap it into 5th and still turn of my TC even though it's been corrected. I like to show off once in a while and make my Swampers HOWL leaving a redlight

Oh ok. I was just curious. I'm gonna try that and see what it does for me. I run mine in 5th alot because when the eco turns on with the Magnaflow it sounds like a fart in the bathtub!!

I just watched them and I gotta tell ya that's some crazy shit. I've never heard those kinda noises before. It kinda sounds like the brake is hanging up or something (even though I'm sure it's not). I really don't know what to tell you. I'm baffled.

Yea ive taken it twice now, they say its fine, but they throw it on the lift, if the wheels spin then they say see it works fine. But when u get some pressure against the tires like brakes or mud when your stuck it kicks in and out constantly and makes horrible noises, i think im going to a different dealer

i purchased the truck from cunninghams in edinboro and have been taking it there for service, im going to try humes in waterford. Hopefully they will agree with me that somthing is wrong with this 4wd in this truck. Its soooo frustrating to have about 48 grand into a truck and the 4wd doesn't even work properly and no ones fixing it.

Yea no doubt. You'd think that they would try to do somethig with it. All those crazy noises gotta mean that something just isn't quite right. Good luck, I hope you get it taken care of.
