  1. My '15 High Country did not come with 5th wheel but the dealer had to install the running boards, cargo box side step, and the chrome front tow hooks. I bought it before they PDI'd it and had to wait for them to put the running boards and step on. Had to take it back to get the chrome tow hooks because they forgot to put them on.
  2. Yeh.......once a week on Sunday evening I drive mine 1/4 of a mile from the house down to the road to put my garbage can out........mine drops 2% on the 1/2 mile round trip.
  3. Got a 2015....don't think I have Android Auto. Never really looked for it but I don't think I have it.
  4. Well...yes it is. But I'm old and I like the big screen and I don't want to have to mount...or lay....a small screen piece of crap somewhere and still not be able to see it. Just a personal preference. I figure if I can't afford to update the map every once in a while I shouldn't have bought a truck with a big screen GPS unit.
  5. I updated the map in my 2015 Monday. Took exactly 50 minutes...no error or missing file messages. Everything still seems to be working okay. I took the $139 "special" with free shipping + tax came to $151.19. It's sort of expensive but I try to update the maps in all of my vehicles every 2 or 3 years. I don't so much mind paying for the map updates as I resent the fact that the new maps are already 1 year or more old by the time they publish them.
  6. My '15 3500 diesel cools fine once it finally starts putting out cool air. My beef is that it takes it a minute or more before there is any sign of cool air, even though the fan is running at high speed. In this Georgia 106 heat index today I almost pass out until I'm down the road a mile or so and the cool air starts coming out of the vents. It's almost like it has a delay on it or something. Of course it is working perfectly when I'm at the dealer so they say it's normal operation.
  7. And us old, short legged little round guys do appreciate them putting that there. Even with that grab point it's still all I can do to get on the tailgate of my 3500 HD 4x4. Can't hardly get my foot up TO the step in the bumper.
  8. My IBC works perfectly and the biggest positive is that it is not a shin or knee knocker hanging from the dash. Best thing since sliced bread for somebody that has to have a trailer brake controller. My experience with Prodigy and other aftermarket controllers is that they work best if hung horizontally but to do that they usually get hung low where you can bang your leg on them.
  9. I had the GM slush mats and replaced them with the Husky Xact Coutnour I like the Huskys a lot better since they actually cover the carpeted area of the door threshold. I live on sandy property and that door threshold area was always full of sand with the GM mats.
  10. Yeh...no kidding. I intend to nurse my transmission, differential, drive shaft, and brakes for as long as I can......tires too. Must be nice to have money.
  11. Comes in handy if you want to flat tow it behind a motorhome. That is the main reason I buy Jeep's with 4x4 and a transfer case that has a neutral. I have seen some folks towing an HD 4x4 pickup.
  12. I always take the $5 a month for 5 months deal. Sometimes they give you 6 months for $25. I have three vehicles with Sirius/XM on the account and they all expire on the same day. With taxes and royalty fees it usually comes to about $86 for 5 months for 3 vehicles. I just call them on the last day and tell them to give me the deal or cancel all 3 accounts. I only listen to the news and the wife usually only listens to the 60's music so no great loss if we turn them off. I've never been able to quote me a deal on a 12 month subscription but maybe I will hold out for a deal on a full year next time. And like the man said above......never give them your credit card. Pay the extra buck or two and have them mail you an invoice......and pay with a money order because if you send them a check they will auto renew by debiting your checking account.
  13. I did mine myself. The lawn mower hit and busted a small rock and I got three dings in the middle of my driver's side rear door. I try not to look at it.
  14. I never saw any water but my GPS and the compass in the dash display quit working after a 3 day rain. Dealer said water got into the XM antenna. They replaced it with a new part number.
