Brownman gets a cool ride (Finally!) Trukstuf!

Picked up a 2016 GMC Sierra SLT, 18xxx miles, 5.3, 6L90, yesterday (9/12/17)
I absolutely fucking love it. I wish I would have taken a loan out a long time ago and bought shit that I've wanted.




A big thanks to everyone for their patience and answering all my questions and concerns.

Plans are tint, spray in bedliner.
I'm undecided on a rustproofing/undercoating.

Oh, i already picked up a free power wheels 4 wheeler, its a big one that looks like I could ride it with 2 speed forward and reverse.

my boys love it, all kinds of visibility and room, the big tires, Jaxon said my truck goes fast.

Big thanks to Bobby P. for getting the truck brought up to the norf side for me.

Re: Brownman gets a cool ride (Finally!) Trukstuf!

Not sure, was toying with the idea of selling the DSM. I need a street car before I build a track car.

But the DSM is in storage, once i move in 2 weeks I'm going to get it to my new place and kill my spare time working on it.

Re: Brownman gets a cool ride (Finally!) Trukstuf!

Yeah, the Diablo Intune made a big difference in seat of the pants and shifting in my Tahoe. Definitely worth the money. Just make sure you can reverse the tune if you need to go in for any warranty work.

Just a heads-up, HPTuners is detectable by the dealership even after flashed back to stock. I know warranty was a huge concern of yours so I would stay away from something like that. Diablo is undetectable once you flash the ECU back to stock, but a dealer can see it if you bring it in with your tune still flashed on. I am not sure about SCT's programmers.

Re: Brownman gets a cool ride (Finally!) Trukstuf!

I've got the diablo I2 for my truck, not sure if it'll work on the newer trucks and I'm pretty sure it can't tune the 8 speeds yet from what I remember reading. If you do your research to see if it works, a new license is only $99 and we can throw a can tuned in it and mess with trans stuff too. I feel like the canned tune 87 tune in my truck didn't make a huge difference but feel like it did help a bit

Re: Brownman gets a cool ride (Finally!) Trukstuf!

The i2 is compatible through 2017 vehicles, 2018+ will need the new i3. They are not yet supporting the 8-speed, but it is coming (the C7 guys are begging for it as well). I'm waiting for their Cruze 6-speed support as well.
