Dude you are rocking it!
Known issue, the ECM (mounted to the firewall behind the coolant surge tank) is rattling in the mount. There are 2 tabs on the top, you can pop the ECM out on the top pretty easily, stick some relatively thin pieces of foam behind it, and then snap it back into place. That should solve it.Hey gang. I wanted to put a question out there. My truck at low RPMs usually around 20-30mph has this vibration noise on passenger side up front. It happens when I let off the gas but only at low speeds. Sounds like maybe fire wall. I will probably post something with new subject line but you all have been good about responding. It's not a big deal, but thinking it may be a simple fix?
I'm with you here. If I ever do upgrade to a bigger truck, I'd also probably go for a 2500 instead of a 1/2 ton.Just got home from 120 mile trip. My common theme 20 mph winds, 55 mph, 15mph 60mph. Less than 10mph winds 65 mph works. I have gotten used to the big trucks blowing by. I was reading some old post on the Baby Mac vs gas. It's not that V6 gas will not pull. I saw a test ran that the V6 pulled a 6,000lb trailer up Ike mountain faster. The difference was yes fuel economy but most important at a much lower rpm. The diesel does not scream. Slow and steady. I am not a mechanic but I am fascinated by how these trucks meet max torque at 1700 RPMs. Same for the Ranger. That truck is fast and will pull. But everyone on here knows we did not buy our trucks to race. Steady and strong without all the aggressive gear shifting. My buddy has a 1/2 ton new Chevy 5.3 gasser. Our Baby Mac has similar torque with way better fuel economy. My point I guess yes, I Iove my Diesel. If we continue to enjoy camping and upgrade 5-6 years down the road, I won't bother with the 1/2 ton. I will jump up to 2500 or 3500. Our trucks are little beast, and not convinced the 1/2 is that much better. I am sure a little but not alot.
