    2015 SLE All Terrain

  1. I own a 15 SLE All Terrain and bought it because it has all the power/towing stuff (minus 6.2), big entertainment screen, front buckets (with console storgage, and power folding mirrors, without the big add ons (leather, nav, 20" wheels, etc). The cloth seats on the All Terrain are also nicer than the LT/SLE trim cloths seats. Partial leather, part canvas almost - it's held up really well. I think you can do better than $32,800 on a 2014. I would think mine with 42K miles wouldn't fetch that much. FYI, SLE AT were a fleet option in 2015 - might have better luck finding that model year as many companies leased this trim for "office" types, versus the LT/SLE for standard field rigs.
  2. What's the spec on the brake pads when new? My wife's Lexus SUV was spec'd to have the pads replaced when they reached 2-3mm (9mm was new).
  3. Flip, did you keep 5100's with the Zone 4.5? I was told I would have to get rid of them. How does it ride?
  4. Right - 6.2 truck motor. Spend most of my time on the car swaps. Would the LS series need engine management?
  5. You've already picked the best option. Used RCSB, pull drivetrain, have a reputable shop build a new package. Should be manageable for $50K with a LS3.
  6. Another option is to apply a 3M protective film on the leading edge of the bed, as well as the rear arch. I had this done after having the same issues with the same tires. $100 and it took an installer less than an hour.
  7. Amsoil 0w-20 (extended miles syn), Amsoil filter, $72 DIY change
  8. There were a couple major things missing from the Tundra when I looked. I may be wrong on these because memory is foggy, but I don't think it had a brake controller (other than a dealer installed one), no Auto 4Hi, and the MPG was 25% worse.

Also, no auto folding side mirrors until the top trims.
  9. Deep breaths. MRT has delivered for many of us on here. I'm sure there is a reason behind the lack of contact (they are a small shop). As for legal action - bit aggressive for under $150 in parts.
  10. Just got the 5100's on all 4 corners, front set at max height. Big improvement in looks, and the ride is better in every way compared to the Ranchos. Truck had 32K miles and the rear Ranchos were toast for the second time.
  11. The only change needed to import a Sierra or Silverado into the US is changing the airbag indicator light by the rearview mirror. There is no other difference as mentioned above and I've had my truck warrantied down here no problem (importation even reset the free oil change clock as the US dealership showed I had 4 remaining changes!)
  12. There were a lot of changes from 2014-2015 on the SLT AT's. Cooled seats, front sensors, slider were a few that were on my brother's truck, but not available on the 2015's I looked at. The slider was on all the 2015's I looked at, but as an add-on costs.
  13. I've always thought it was the entertainment/center stack making the noise. Like the head unit "powering off"
