  1. Turbo engines lose power at altitude just not as bad as NA engines... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I wonder if the 2019s have the same wax on the frames? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have been using fluid film on my frame for about 2 years now. It didn’t dissolve the wax on my frame at all. However it doesn’t really hold up from the constant barrage of salt/anti skid which seems to blast it off easily. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I ended up doing this last night! The fluid film is good stuff but it can’t hold up over winter from the constant barrage of salt/anti skid. My frame looks terrible after this winter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have a dent that I put in my bumper almost at the exact same spot. Although mine is a bit smaller. Here is my thought and pretty much what I'm going to do - take it to a paintless dent repair place, maybe for like $50-100 they could pop it out. If not, I was going to take the bumper cover off and try to pop the dent my self. If that doesn't work i would just pay the $500 and put the bumper on myself. It looks like a very easy job.
  6. Drained out the excess oil. Took like 15 minutes. We will see how she does from here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I mean, all oils I have changed in every vehicle I owned have had a slight fuel smell in the oil. Its just the nature of a gasoline engine. I'm just gonna drain some oil out and be done with it. It seems like a non issue for me. I have the powertrain warranty for 5 yrs/100,000 miles anyway. So if it does fail, it will be on Chevy.
  8. So the diagnosis for this problem is high oil level and fuel smell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I changed the oil in my truck and filled it to the top of the hatched area on the dipstick. A few weeks later I checked the oil again and it was about a quarter of an inch above the hatch area. I wonder if I have this problem. I have a 2015 with about 30k on the clock.
  10. Yea it’s pathetic, my seat movement is back as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think I’m not going to attempt due to the reasons that were listed above. Some places around here charge $25+ to mount and balance tires! This gets expensive when me and my wife both have sets of winter and summer tires for our cars. Luckily there is a Costco near by that does $10 a tire, appointments are usually 2 weeks out though.

  12. I said this earlier in the thread. I know with cars they typically lower the roof for structural reasons when adding a sunroof. I’m sure it’s the same way with a truck. They could possibly add some bracing that you can’t see to beef up the structure. You could change the whole dynamics of your truck in a wreck. This is one of those mods you should pass up for safety reasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Does anyone here mount their own tires? I saw some videos on YouTube with people manually mounting tires with pry bars. It really didn’t look that bad, I was thinking of trying it myself. Thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
