    Member from long ago finally returning. I have a 2011 GMC 2500 HD SLT with the LML. From the total loss of my Silverado and a Focus ST I traded, this is what I decided to get. This will be my first diesel and what a better place to come to than oilburners.net for support, diag, FAQs, discussion and whatnot! I don't plan to do much to this truck as it will be my DD for a while but I want to learn as much as I can about this engine and perform proper maintenance and if I have issues how to resolve them. I've been pretty handy with my vehicles but I'm not afraid to go to a shop and let professionals do professional work, especially since I don't have access to a lift/air tools.

    I look forward to being back and hope to make some good connections with the other members.

    Welcome back.
    Is it all stock?
    A tune will sure wake it up and take away the pedal lag.

    Yes stock for now. I would say most I would ever do is tune, intake, exhaust/ DEF/DPF delete. Also if I ever have to replace something I typically upgrade it, but like I said, I don't want to play with it too much as it is my DD and I want it to last.

    Took the GMC to Ziebart and got the front windows tinted as well as the brow. Also got a Rhino-liner sprayed in and my old toolbox installed. Ordered some weathertech mud guards should get those in next week.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Very nice. I like the quiet hiss, it's just a hint of what's there.

    I should have kept that 11. Lol
    Oh well. I'd like a L5P one day. But the LML are more than adequate.
