    Congrats on the GMC. Don't know anything about diesels but my two GMC Z-71'S have been super reliable.
    My 99 is about 10,000 away from 300,000 all original drive train. My 06 has 240,000 on it also with all
    original drive train.

    The 99 pulling way more than it should for a 1/2 ton.

    After towing Moby down to Motech a few weeks back, we realized that it would be helpful to have a little help holding up the rear end of our Duramax and so I installed a pair of AirLift airbags.

    If you're in need of something like this on your tow rig, I would highly recommend AirLift. They are affordable and super easy to install.

    Nice. Glad they worked out. Did you do in-cab controls or exterior valves?

    For now, I just connected both air lines to a T-union and then ran a single line to the rear bumper with the schrader valve at the end. Seems that I won't be needing to change the psi in them too often so I figured this would work for now. I can always upgrade to the in-cab control at a later date if needed.

    That's awesome. My dad could really have used a set up like that, but he's too tight for it.

    That's exactly how I did my dmax. I actually ran such low air pressures that I could use my bicycle tire pump to fill the bags. Cheap I know, but literally took me only a minute to pump the bags up to 30 psi with a hand pump.
    You can also play with the psi and it will affect your ride obviously. At 20 psi towing truck would sit level, but would get kind of bouncy on the bumpier sections of hwy. 30 psi the bounce disappeared.
    Man I miss my duramax. But at the time my jku replaced it so that was obviously a great decision...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
