Post FINALY getting a new truck, few questions

So it's a e99 stock hight 35' mud terrains great price BUT

The tires rub only when u get close to full lock left only I'm wondering if the axle walked over?

At idle it feels like there's a miss, now I drive a 93 gm 6.5td right now so I know diesels don't run like Cadillacs but it has an odd skip to it, rev it a by and it's smother. And it comes back at city cruise 50-60 (km/h eh) at the lower rpm range 1250 to 1600 maybe I cant remember and u turn off of and it goes to higher rpm and it goes away. Just doesn't feel right to be maybe it's just the way theses motors are I've never had one

And because it's a 99 it's got the backseat I don't really like is that swappable? If yes I'll look into it

And it's got pw pl ps but no power mirrors!!! Is the harness there and easy to add power in the future like adding some 08 mirrors or is it gun a be a **** to do


Other than that it's a out of province truck and the box was replaced and is not color matching it's from Alberta 300k or so just passed a oop vi so I'm not to concerned there just the paint and motor is all that's holding me back

Po tO the po replaced turbo and heads and the po put Ina computer frOm an 02


Thx

Very common for larger tires on these trucks to rub. Only way to really fix it is to get a spacer or get back spacing adjusted.

I have no way to tell for you. Maybe you could post a video of it running or something. You may want to take it to get it checked out though. These engines do however not sound anything like gas engines so it is common for them to sound like they are knocking or skipping sometimes. Especially if the engine is cold.

Yes they are.

The harness is there but not everything is plug and play. You may have to splice it together

Other than that it's a out of province truck and the box was replaced and is not color matching it's from Alberta 300k or so just passed a oop vi so I'm not to concerned there just the paint and motor is all that's holding me back

I didnt understand a lot of that but I assume PO is previous owner. I would see if that computer is a PMT1 or 2. If it is then you are ahead of the power curve.

Back seat is swapable but not plug and play at all! or my early 99 to 03 wasn't
My truck was rubing only one way too i also have 35's the reason it did that on mine was a broken leaf spring might want to look into that.
