My deleted 2015, trans tune, will break in 1st gear, and my TQ converter only locks in 5th and 6th, very rare will it lock in 4th, and never on other gears. The E brake works in all gears, for me, locked or not. I only manual shift down to 2nd, as if I do 1st, it gets aggressive. If no one tailgating me, I can slow down to 2nd and turn a corner without using the breaks. I also tow about 8,000lbs travel trailer and never use tow haul. It will pull a hill with no problem and wont downshift.
I cant remember what it was like when it was stock.

Time to learn more about what you drive and how it works. You have yourself fooled pretty good here. Don’t take this personal, obviously you just don’t understand.

I am in tow/haul with the gears locked out above 2nd,1st gear has no exhaust brake and 2nd at that speed is in freewheel mode (unlocked) so I'm on the brakes the whole way down.
Exactly RJ,
Good reasoning right there.
And the bonus is.... It didnt require letting a dealership's hands touch your truck.

Here's another item for ya' RJ. . .

I have a 2016 3500 4x4 Longhorn with a 'cheap' front axle disconnect.
When I have to back into a tight spot with the camper on the truck 2WD-Low can be a real lifesaver.

The switch to engage 2WD-Low is conveniently located on the right side of my center console. . .

It's a simple project that is 100% done from inside the cab. No heavy wrenching needed.
Mine works as intended. No issues at all.

Happy camping!

My truck will brake in 1st without breaking anything. If your truck breaks in first you should definitely head to the dealer asap.

Well done.

In this thread you broke in last, however.

Sometimes breaking last is a win.

5-6 hunting. Are you using tow haul? Lock out a gear if not.
The new "Allison" 10L1000 in the 2020 GM's can lock in 1st gear. Lol. But yes, the 68rfe and aisin cannot lock in 2nd gear and the exhaust brake will not work without the TC being locked.

I don't know about stock. BUT, the person that did my delete and trany tune did a good job.
Mine will work in all gears, TQ locked or not.
As I stated, I can manually downshift my auto trans, and turn a corner from highway speeds, without using the brake. It will EB in first, but no need for it. Towing or not, I can EB and just use brake a little to come to a stop, down shifting to 2nd gear.
5th and 6th lock soon and hard, 4th very rair, 3,2,1 I haven't seen locked on the edge moniter.
( I have no reason to lie, or start an argument )

Every 18 years GM uses its bailout (venture capital) money to R&D its drivetrain.

Then give up, and turn to Japan.
