    Ok, so between the nosedive and my 2" of free play in the brake pedal, my truck is currently driving me a little nutty.

    The nosedive is well known and will soon be remedied, but are the rest of you guys experiencing about 2" of free play in the brake pedal before feeling pressure/pad contact???

    Just need some input before I haul it back to my dealer and have them tell me it''s "normal"....

    My brakes seem tight. How many miles do you have on the pads? Lift fixed my nose dive for the most part.

    New truck, could just be a different feel than you are used to?

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Check your brake fluid. Sounds like you might not have fluid in the hose. Make sure it's not stopped, or kinked up.
