    Grab a set of Bosch P/N 13111 O2 senders and ditch the extensions - they have a nice long harness and no extensions are required. This is especially good advice if you are still running the old stock senders. Be warned that the parts store will try to sell you P/N 13444 -- ignore them!

    Ok I cant take it any more...I need to replace my driver side bulb socket for my DRL. It's finally aggravated me to the point that it has to be replaced. Do you guys recommend any specific replacement or just whatever I can find? I've seen you guys say that the wires dont always match up on some of them so I want to make sure I order whatever you guys are using.

    If you have replaced the sockets already then no need to worry about those... but I got new sockets from advance auto and wired them in. You will also need to upgrade your flasher. I had the flasher from my hazards in there at first but then I put a high performance flasher in rated higher than the hazard flasher. The bulbs I got from ddmtuning.com. That's my set up and hope that helps

    That's a bit unfortunate, as long as you weren't charged for the catted set. However, I feel that is the setup I want to run, have a video of it?

    I'm going to check with them today to make sure they didn't charge me. I don't have a video yet but will try to get one asap.

    Just wanna say how much I hate our DRL sockets. Replaced both for the third time. Also I swear the housings are rock magnets. Replaced another one today. Also got new rotors and pads put on today. Rear pads looked pretty good but might as well start fresh at all 4 corners.

    I need to do that to mine. That looks really good. Did you buy blacked out covers or did you use that spray stuff?

    Went for a drive late this afternoon put on another 50 miles and another mileage cycle on the new rear. The more I drive it with the new gearing the more I'm loving this car even more. I'm at 250 miles to my 500 needed for break in and oil change.

    04 2500 4x4 crew cab

    This was last weekend, but I sold mine. House and family takes precedence. It's funny where life takes us. Got my down payment for a new house. I have previously picked up another Gm product, though. Got my truck I have always wanted. A 4x4, 2500 crew cab chevy. It is exactly what I wanted, cloth interior, tan(which I hated in the WS6 and paid big money for to change to black, but really like in the truck), and captains chairs up front. The truck came with a lift, 35" tires, and a push bumper with KC lights. Since I picked it up in Feb, I have added a headache rack, a flush mount toolbox (which sits down inside the bed), a water pump (which blew out in the driveway on a friday, thank god), belts, hoses, ( may as well, since the water pump was being changed at the same time, right?), a rewire of the KC lights( the wiring the truck came with was atricious!), a double din touchscreen DVD player with bluetooth( can actually hear the phone convo now), and also a rear view camera(helps with hooking up a trailer, the first time I used it, I actually bumped the trailer back becuase I hit it on the head!!), and have on order a 50" LED light bar and mounts.

    The kid that bought my WS6 told me he is going to drag race it. It wasn't my place to tell him that the rear end won't take that abuse long with the M6!!

    It is kinda nice having my own truck now after having the WS6 for so long. I have been limited to not being able to have my own truck, since where I live, the Police and the HOA don't allow parking on the street. I have had a company truck, and then, there is no room to park my own truck.

    Since I bought my truck, I have taken it down the jeep trails and hauled my gear. All of my gear. Really lovin the new Chevy. Gas mileage is sh@#, but since work pays for gas, no worries. And, since I can write off my mileage on top of that, it is a win'win for me. And, all of the experience of owning and wrenching on the WS6 has already paid off for me.

    In the future, I am looking at installing front and rear differential locks and having Nick dynotune the truck for some mileage and a little more power. I am including my signature one last time to let you all know the amount of work I put into my WS6.

    Keith - I am both sad and happy for you. I know you loved your WS.6 and enjoyed every minute of owning her.
