Yeah right ? a 6.0 would be
lol...yeah that would have been worth the pain. It is a 5.7 and they put in a Jasper rebuilt. I thought being a Chevy dealer I could get a GM crate engine but, they said my engine was no longer available ? (I still see them at GM performance).400sb? Surprised you didnt opt for the 6.0LS upgrade.
Didn't do a bloody thing for mine. If anything, made it worse . Already ordered a pair of seals.
I'm not dancing yet but I'll have an update later this week.
What's the ballpark cost of rust proofing one of these SUV frames?Reading here about the rusty frame problems, decided to get mine done with NH oil undercoating. Went down to the shop and spoke with them, they also have a 'rust conversion' process. Decided to do that, too. They also clean and coat the inside of the frame.
Expensive, wish me luck.
I thought the same thing last year when I had a flat. I put the wrong end into the tube. Flipped it over, and it worked perfectly. But then again, you are in one of the worst rust states in the USA.Taking the TB on a real long trip mid June, so I decided to check the spare and make sure the lift mechanism worked. First time since 07, when I bought it.
It was evening, so I lifted the rear seat, pulled out the rods that lower the tire, couldn't even get them to fit on the square to lower it. Came in and watched some You Tube videos on the procedure.
Was losing the light, so today I'll fight with it some more. I'm sure It's going to need a new lift mechanism.
