  1. The charge pad system in the truck was out there several years before the i8. I'd say it's on Apple....
  2. Synthetic or semi-synthetic, your choice.
  3. According to the order guide #E-assist is only offered with 3.42's. It was posted above, but here it is again. The RPO code is PCQ. You can look at label in glovebox and verify the ratio in the truck. PCQ SLT eAssist Package, includes (L8B) 5.3L V8 eAssist engine, (M5X) 8-speed automatic eAssist transmission, (C5Z) 7,200 lbs. GVWR for 2WD models, (C6C) 7,400 lbs. GVWR for 4WD models, (UF2) LED Lighting, cargo box and (5JY) soft-folding tonneau cover, LPO 1 - Includes (GU6) 3.42 rear axle ratio. Requires T*15543 Crew Cab models and (PDT) SLT Crew Cab Premium Plus Package. Not available with (Z71) Off-Road package or (RC7) 20” Tires. Not available with any free flow packages or RPO options other than (K05) engine block heater and (VK3) front license plate kit. No substitutions of the above required or included equipment.
  4. They'll tell them to buy an android LOL Or to plug it in, so they can use CarPlay.
  5. Tow Mirrors Dilema

    Yes you can switch. Parts dept should be able to supply a list of parts required for your serial number. I looked into this for the 2015 truck that I had, before I decided to get this NHT truck. Parts guys had the bulletin with the cahrt of what existing truck was equipped with and what is required to change. It was definitely doable - but I thought it was spendy.
  6. Towing a gooseneck with a 1500

    NHT cannot be ordered on a Z71 truck. NHT is only available on LT and LTZ trims. (SLE and SLT for GMC family) This is 'copy/paste' for the 2018 MY NHT - Max Trailering Package, On Crew Cab and Double Cab models, includes 9.76" rear axle, (JL1) trailer brake controller, enhanced cooling radiator, revised shock tuning for increased control, heavier duty rear springs and increased RGAWR LT - Includes (G80) heavy-duty automatic locking rear differential and Z82 Trailering Package. Requires (L83) 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine and (DPN) outside heated power-adjustable vertical camper mirrors. Includes (PZX) 18" x 8.5" bright-machined aluminum wheels with (RKX) 18" tires or may upgrade to (RD4) 20" aluminum wheels with either (RC7) or (QSS) 20" tires. LTZ - With (L83) 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, requires (PZX) 18" x 8.5" aluminum wheels and (RKX) 18" tires or may upgrade to (RD2) 20" chrome wheels with either (RC7) or (QSS) 20" tires. With (L86) 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine, requires (RD2) 20" chrome wheels with (QSS) 20" tires. Requires (DQS) Outside heated power-adjustable vertical camper mirrors. Not available with (Z71) Off-Road Suspension Package. NHT also provides a lower ratio differential. Exact one depends on engine /trans combo. So NHT gets the tow mirrors, enhanced cooling, 9.76 axle, heavier springs and higher RGAWR (rear gross axle weight rating) Items like G80 and brake controller are standard or available on LT/LTZ/SLE/SLT (but maybe not on other trims) Z71 is (traditionally was?) a suspension package for better off-road, rather than a towing package. It now also includes a bunch of styling items (especially on the chev) Some think the Z71 does not ride as nice as the non-Z71
  7. Rvduck, you misread the posts you are referring to. Somehow the text attributed to me was written by Black02Silverado. (in the previous post). (maybe the new software for the site has a bug?) My post was a response to the Black02Silverado post - and my response was "Depends on what they're being used for." FWIW, I'm in complete agreement with you. Lots of 6.0's out there. Right tool for the job, etc etc. I just didn't take the time to write examples of those uses. Thank you for doing so. But I'm still confused about being credited for a post I was simply responding to.
  8. Depends on what they're being used for.
  9. The more consistently a vehicle is driven, the more likely the olm, will trigger at the same mileage. If a vehicle gets different usage during some oil change cycles it is more likely to trigger at a different mileage. And of course that's the whole reason the OLM system was developed. And yes is is an algorithm and is not an oil sensor.
  10. 2 radios have cd: US8 Audio system, AM/FM stereo with CD/MP3 player, USB port, seek-and-scan, digital clock, auto-tone control, Radio Data System (RDS), TheftLock, random select, auxiliary jack and 2 front door speakers 1 - Included with (WP9) Communications Package.

Includes (UBS) NavTraffic, (USR) USB port and (UPF) Bluetooth for phone. Not available with (U2K) SiriusXM Satellite Radio or (WP9) Communications Package. 2 - Requires (ZQ3) Driver Convenience Package, (NP5) leather-wrapped steering wheel and (W1Y) steering wheel controls. Includes (UBS) NavTraffic, (USR) USB port and (UPF) Bluetooth for phone. Not available with (U2K) SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
  11. I'd bet it doesn't have 3.08's. You can check the codes in the label in the glove box to determine what is installed. GU5 = 3.08 GU5 = 3.23 GU6 = 3.42 GT4 = 3.73
  12. What I'm sayin' is it charges my S7 fine. And since the previous posts I've had someone with an S8 in the truck and their phone charged on the pad as well. Still haven't had a chance to try an i8 apple.
  13. Of course that's also what the owwers manual says: (it has lots of pics/diagrams as well) When installing a child restraint with a top tether, you must also use either the lower anchors or the safety belts to properly secure the child restraint. A child restraint must never be attached using only the top tether. Lower ones are metal rings.
  14. Hood scoop is only on the diesel. And it's for engine intake air, not for cooling the intercooler (which is used to cool intake air between the turbo and intake manifold: the intercooler is cooled by the same airstream as the radiator).
  15. Its the options that make the difference. Over $10,000 worth on that truck.
