  1. On what truck? Honestly below 65 there is no issue, but unloaded on the interests we don't drive that slow.
  2. I do know a guy that had crazy run out in his front hubs, but that was on a 1st gen many years ago.
  3. Rims were checked when they tried finding the vibration before.
  4. I've been fighting this since about 27,000 miles. Seemed to start when the first new set of tires went on. i have not tried coasting in Neutral, I'll have to try that, along with Mark Smiths thought.
  5. I'm not sure if one is better then another, but I have only used Blue DEF in my truck. I bought 4 before this trip to be sure I had enough. Buying at Costco for $10 is a good deal.
  6. I'm out of Texas now and speeds will be lower so I'll let it be, but I think when I get home I'll have to take a look at the driveline. I'll also have Les Schwab Road force balance the tires just to be sure. In reading online it seems there are a lot of issues with this. Some are pointing it to the very stiff frame and springs making it all resonate at higher speeds.
  7. Not yet. I need to do this though.
  8. Has anyone experienced a vibration with their 4th gen truck at highway speeds? It is with two sets of tires so far as I thought that was the issue. it was first noticed after putting new tires on at 27,000 miles. I had those replaced 1,000 miles later and thought it was better until driving out I-84 a few months ago. So then I put on another new set of tires and the vibration is very apparent on this trip. Not bad loaded going to Texas, but coming home empty it's terrible at highway speeds. I've done some reading on it and it sounds like it's definitely an issue with few solutions.
  9. Last day on the small trailer. Broken belt I think but it didn’t let go. Didn’t look like this in the morning.
  10. We made it. 2,300 miles driven in 4 days. Luckily no issues for us. We got stuck in traffic west of Rawlins Sunday night for 2 hours, that made our short day just as long as the rest. There was a bad wreck. The heat was tough on these old horses but we got them all here alive. now time to have some fun on the way home.
  11. Clear blue sky and nothing but open range. Not much to see there that's for sure.
  12. I hope your trip is going well. I see some storms moving through Iowa.
  13. Sorry Hoss. This whole summer has kind of been a crap shoot as to what we can and cannot do.
  14. What time? If it's later in the day I'll buy you a burger at Helveita Tavern.
  15. Yeah my pastures still have grass for the horses to eat. That is always nice.
  16. So I have determined it's a short in the trailer. At least that is one issue. I hooked this trailer to my 04.5 this morning to haul it into work and the less smart brake controller in it identifies a short in the trailer. Now for my maintenance guy at work to start tracing wires.
  17. With my 2017 I've been having trouble with intermittent trailer brakes. 2 weeks ago I got a warning saying trailer brake disconnected, check trailer wiring. Drove home the last 120 miles without brakes. Next day they worked. We looked over the entire trailer and coolant' find a problem. 2 weeks later I hook to it and have brakes. I drive over the mountain Friday I had times I had brakes and times I didn't. I understand there is a TSB out about this and was told I should check the plug behind the dash. I tore the dash oaprt yesterday and all the wires seem tight. I loaded up th
  18. This truck sits for months at a time. I can't justify the locking hubs for this one.
  19. It's original. 230,000 miles on it. It sounds like this noise is at the wheel.
