Russell from Fort McMurray here. I've got a number of Duramax powered vehicles in my fleet including 2014 LML daily driver, 95 Tahoe 2dr solid axle swapped on 37s with an 02 LB7 / ZF6 swapped into it and also an 05 LLY / ZF6 truck which will eventually be transplated in an 03-07 Tahoe or Yukon 4 door.
The new 4 door will be to replace the 95 and will also serve as my daily driver. I'll do a solid axle swap on it as well and put it up on 37s. LLY / ZF6 / Atlas with a fabricated D60 front, 14 bolt semi floater rear. 3 link suspensions front and rear with coils and bypass shocks. I hang out with a bunch of guys who race in Ultra4 and this grocery getter is gonna get some in the desert too!
Anyways, I'm always down to help out other folks here and there. My fiance lives in Calgary, so I commute down there on a regular basis to see her. I don't mind hauling stuff back and forth if anyone needs anything moved Calgary to Fort Mac or vice versa.
I also have EFILive and a Tech 2 if folks need anything that way as well.
Guys, I just posted up in the Maintenance & Fluids Sub forum, a Cross Reference chart for those of you that have the FASS system. I find the dealers simply hose us for "oem" filters that are likely made by one of the companies in the Cross reference.
For guys in Calgary, Check out:
Just thought I'd share some info on my flex plate and what happened so you locals might avoid it.. Had a bit of a different noise in the truck, very slight but it was there. Almost like a bent rod but then it was gone... Long story short I was idling on 63 for 4hrs bad accident, all seemed fine...
