A question on the 2500HD. I have a 2002 and with the rear tires at the door sticker pressure, it has an unpleasently hard ride. This is with little load in the bed, no trailer. I remember in the past there being tables of tire pressure vs load. Are they still published?
I usually run my tires at 55 lbs.
If I know I'm going to be carrying some real heavy stuff for a long distance I will inflate to max pressure.
But it is rare that I need that much carrying capacity.
I do have about 1500# of tools onboard at all times though.
For pulling an A/S you should never need to inflate to max as pressure is more a function of what you are carring not pulling.
I had to have my 02 2500 HD towed in to the dealer yesterday.
Came out to go to work and it wouldn't start. Lights, AC fan, dash lights all worked. But the starter wouldn't even click.
Wouldn't you know it, the warranty just ran out about 1700 miles ago.
