yeah make a table. use a brake rotor as the base, bolt an old axle to it, slap the hub on top, and bolt a wheel on it.

When you have a blood sucking daughter with no money still latched on to your teet, EVERYTHING is worth saving. I think I just fixed her blazer for next to nothing.

Need to look into that some more. it was fine all week daily driving.

no real updates, just doing a bunch of basic stuff to get ready for a road trip.

Done list
replaced serpentine belt and tensioner
replaced AC belt and tensioner
Clean out radiator and condenser (filled a 2.5 gallon bucket with trash)
Change front diff fluid
change rear diff fluid
rotate tires
install new head unit (what a pain in the ass that was)
install new fuel tank vent valve
cleaned the Mass airflow sensor
installed new to me non broken driver step rail.

all i have left is an alignment and fix the drivers seat motor. the motor that makes the bottom pad go up and down is inop. need to look into that. still a bunch of little **** to do, but it will get there in due time. Its defiantly more expensive to own a denali over a standard yukon/burb.

I have been working on the tune a bit too. after some initial tweaks im up to 14.8 mpg avg over 14.3 mpg avg. i forgot how hot GM likes to run stock trucks. low speed came on at 229* and high came on at like 237*.

I had a regular Yukon for awhile. I didn't have to fight with it nearly as much as I am this SS. I always wondered how the electronics and such in the Denali did over the standard truck. What about the Denali has been making it more expensive than a standard trim level?

I need to do something with my tune other than just mod the shift points and fan parameters. I feel like I'm leaving something on the table in terms of fuel mileage, but I haven't taken the time to look into how to do it.

I was monitoring the temp on her Traverse the other day as I was backing the boat UPHILL into the garage. The high speed fan finally kicked on for the first time EVER that I can remember in that car. Temp was a somewhat staggering 231*. It quickly came back down once I stopped moving and let it idle for a minute. Those kinds of temps make me feel like my "overheating" issue in the SS isn't such a big deal. If it only spikes into the 230-240 range and comes right back down, then maybe it's just fine doing that and I'm overreacting!?!?

Just all the little bells and whistles cost money.

Had to replace a seat power switch. That was 80 bucks for one seat. Installing the headunit i had to buy a bumch of adapters since its a factory amp truck and to retain all the steering wheel controls and chimes.

Still need 4 new seat heater pads which is like 200 at a quick glance.

Just not used to a truck with so many creature comforts.

Gotcha. I was scared crapless that my Audi was going to do that to me. Luckily I had ~5yrs of mostly electronics gremlin free driving. That car had something like 25 different electronics control modules in it. Hell each door had it's own module to control the windows, mirrors, and locks. Each seat had it's own module to control the positions, heaters, and memory. I'm sooo glad it never bugged out on me!

The SS needs new seat heaters as well as a new seat pad foam piece. Also like $250 estimated.
