    No as far as I'm aware it came with stock 17 inch rims and that is what is on it now.

    I have the same problem with the same truck except my cruise shuts off at 60 mph and will not come back on.

    Hey Dennis Weid, I have the same problem as him, my truck is lifted with 35/12.50 tire size. Cruise comes on and will set but when I hit 30 MPH it goes off. The dealershit I bought it from said I have to redo the gear ratio....but all my friends with lifted trucks dont have this problem...any answers?

More than likely problem is with rear speed sensor. It is located on top of rear differential. New from dealer is about $35.00. A lot of the time you can remove the old one and give it a good cleaning. Easy to repair but just be careful that you dont break it off.

I'm being told to go to a dealer and have my Pinion Factor Checked in the Trans Controller.

    I took my truck to the dealer and the Cruise Switch needed replaced. This fixed my problem for $100 including labor.

My cruise control will not stay engaged. Can it be fixed and how?


mcdevito75 here, The cruise control should be computer activated, check with your local repair shop. Cruise controls will not work below 35 MPH for safety. The computer must be recieveing info you are going less than 35 MPH and shutting it down. Also check vacum lines at the Cruise Contrl actuator, close to the accelerator linkage under the hood.

It sounds more like a cable or linkage sticking, and yes it is transmission related, sort of, just because of the high RPM before shifting. Spray all your cables good with lube, at throttle linkage, and get under and look where cable & linkages are at side of transmission, and spray them good too, and work them back & forth, to try & loosen them up. Truck shut off & in park when under it eh.!
Then work shifter back & forth, gas pedal to floor & up etc, to try & loosen things up. That may just cure your problem.
