I am soo in love with this truck the ride and sound of the motor is simply amazing. I went with an 8foot bed this time around as I have the new 5'r. Figured I will use the extra bedspace. I will buy staionary legs for my hitch when I have it installed and sell the sliding base. I always do thing half assed installed the 5th wheel and towed the camper twice with it now im sellin that truck lol. To be honest I never needed to use the sliding rails I always had great cab clearance. I found the radiator grill cover for this Silverado under the rear seat still sealed in the bag. Also founf the block heater plug still wrapped up on the passenger fenderwell like its been since new guess this guy never used that stuff.
X2. Stock classic 07 (no DEF). Love the package.

Do any of you guys run a Diesel additive? Lots of guys on a Duramax forum suggesting it looking for opinions.

Garbonz this truck does not use DEF it has a DPF but overall same end result with emissions crap. You get a soot free tail pipe at the expense of more fuel usage

Not to high jack the thread but I have been thinking about getting these seat covers. So my question is how do you like them and do they do as far as dirt and liquids getting threw them and into the actual seat?

I add power service additive at every fill. In winter, I use the white bottle. 8 oz per 25 gal.

I use the gray bottle(Power Services Diesel Kleen) in all weather above freezing and the white bottle when times are near freezing. One oz. per 3 gallons. Here is the best measuring device I have found. Yep, it is what it looks like. Very clean, cheap(3 for $2 at Walmart) and doesn't leak. I know my Ford had 37 gallon tank. At half a tank, which would be 18 gallons, I add 6 oz to the tank and refill. Very easy to do.

The reason for adding the fuel additive has nothing to do with any emissions equipment on your truck. The additive is because of new emission laws the diesel fuel that is now called ultra low sulfur lacks cetaine rating and because it also lacks the lubricating properties of old fuel. I am a heavy equipment service manager and former tech and I can tell you that all of our equipment suffers fuel related problems from the new fuel. the additive will do wonders in helping to prolong the life of the fuel system.
