Whats a single master cylinder?

Pre 1967 for most cars/trucks. Only one hydraulic circuit fed all 4 brakes. No redundancy.

I may have missed that what ever your sarcasm was but many people are really dumb when it comes to cars and trucks, back in the early sixtys I had one older person stop in and ask me what the red light was in the center of the speedometer and what does the large button the floor do

It was that general lack of knowledge that provided a great career for your's truly.

Ironically, it had exactly 65,000 miles on the odometer when I dropped it off at the dealership.

They told me that 60,000 was the recommended miliage for having this done, although they did say that my tranny fluid still looked like brand new!

I hit the road tomorrow for the beginning of my full time journey, so wanted to make sure the truck was good to go!

Thatís a nice truck. We just purchased a 2016 2500 LTZ Z71 duramax about 6
months ago. Night and day from the gasser. Loved the upgrade. Wanted the 2016 before the new engine was introduced.

Mine has the 4.10 rear end in it so it is a little beefier in the towing department than most other gassers.

I chose gas over diesel as this was my daily driver for three years (roughly 100 miles per day.

Makes sense to me.
I drive company truck for work.
Wifeís drives her car.
We also have a 2005 2500 hd gasser. It has become our play in the forest truck.
The duramax sits in the drive way waiting to tow. I just wanted a diesel.
