    The big 3 HD trucks all had the same bolt pattern, until 99 when Ford changed.... GM changed in 2011....2020 Dodge's finally went away from the 8x6.5, lol

    I'm hearing individuals that switch over to AMSOIL ATL fluid are saying it fixed it as well. Glad it is fixed and not on your dime.

    I thought it was '09 for the GM? I recall my '09 Silvy having something odd about the bolt pattern when I ordered those Centerlines. What the hell was that all about?

    RAMs are still 8x6.5. They call it 8x165 to sound fancy, but they're still the same. Upper trim duallies still get the same Alcoas they've been getting for years.

    Did some towing for the first time with the new truck. I like the camera for hooking up. No more guessing as to when I'm under the tongue. first tow.jpg

    Mayhap different hub size for the 09 compared to older years? The LML was the first generation with the 8x180 and 8x210 bolt patterns, as far as I know.

    That's good to hear... Nobody should have switched from 8x6.5
