    2011 GMC Sierra Denali
  1. Yes..They did on my Yukon and my Sierra. My aunt and one the guys I used to work also had leaky lines on their tahoes. I'd be looking at aftermarket lines if mine weren't just replaced under warranty. It should be noted that none of them leaked bad enough to cause any issues other than making the lines dirty.
  2. I've never installed one but, I had it on my previous Yukon and loved it in the winter. Worked great except for when the spray nozzles would freeze (would have to break the ice off them). Then there was the time I had a CD case sitting in the area in front of the button. It would hit the button causing the wipers to turn on seemingly at random. Took me longer than I care to admit to figure out it was the CD case and not an electrical gremlin. I think this was the company that originally supplied them to GM. http://www.alphathermusa.com/Products.html If I recall correctly, the factory units were recalled due to causing fires. The fix was to remove the unit but, on mine they just pulled the fuse.
  3. I like it with the exception of a few things...The fender going into the headlight. The mirrors being lower on the door instead of the front triangle area of the window. The rear windows don't look like they will go all the way down with that raised portion in the rear of them. I'm really curious to see how this looks without the aggressive tires and 2" lift in other trim levels.
  4. Photobucket fixes for FireFox and Chrome users.

    Interesting...I wonder how long this will work before PB gets wind of it. Anyway, I'm in and thanks!
  5. There are more expensive vehicles if that's the end goal. That said; if I had to keep it, a Koenigsegg would be my pick. Would be tough to choose between an Agera, Regera and a One:1 though.
  6. Ford F-150 Awards Just Won't Stop

    If all you know about an award is who won it, does it really mean anything? Personally none of them mean squat to me. The only exception are the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) ratings, those I have seen videos of their tests and know they put a lot of effort in to their ratings.
  7. Last time I quoted a Vette it was over $1400 for 6 months which is nearly 3 times as much as it cost me for my truck. That was for full coverage with a clean record and being 29yo.
  8. I've heard $135k being thrown around. It's definitely in the realm of cars with this sort of performance but, sadly way out of my budget.
  9. Checkout this thread... Self Diving Vehicle Thread I personally like them and am looking forward to them being the norm. Sure I'll still want to drive on a track/offroad for play but, day to day I'd much rather let a car drive itself. Computers can and will be safer than humans and have actually proven to prevent accidents humans wouldn't even have a chance at preventing. With enough redundancies and safety protocols "glitches" aren't a problem. I explain a little more in the thread but, that's the gist of my opinion about them.
  10. On Star is a joke...

    It's grossly overpriced and has a lot of useless features IMO. The only useful features are the app (remote start, lock/un-lock, etc), crash response and slowing down (onstar website doesn't say it will SHUT down, only slow) in the event of theft. I'd gladly pay a one time fee for the app but, I won't be paying for on-star once my trial is over.
  11. Not exactly a "boat" owner but, I have a kayak and I use public boat ramps often. I haven't seen anything particularly idiotic at a ramp but, I did see one of those huge Kodiak trucks pulling a jet ski trailer once. Since I'm in a kayak I can't launch with all my gear (fishing) in the kayak as it's too heavy and cumbersome. If no one is around I'll take my time but, when it's busy I'll drop everything to the side of the ramp/on the bank so I'm not in the way. I usually spend more time on the ramp answering questions about my kayak than it takes to actually launch. I've also helped my parents launch their 26' pontoon several times. When they first bought it they had trouble loading it (launching is a breeze, as long as there's not a large wake or wind). Having to be near perfectly centered and parallel with a 26 plus foot trailer that's mostly submerged in dirty water isn't an easy task, especially if there's any side wide (that thing is basically a sail). Eventually they installed some uprights that made it easy to tell if you were straight and it made things 100x easier. Now they have it down to an art and can (and have) launch and load it quicker than some bass boats.
  12. Trucks and BBQ

    I kinda expected this to be one of those meet-up threads kinda like a "cars and coffe" thing. My grill is currently down to one burner that isn't rusted out but, I've got a little webber smokey joe to get me by until I decide what I want to replace it with.
  13. Quantum Leaps

    Take VW for example
  14. Back in 2009 the county I lived in got 1.5 to 2 inches of ice. Roads couldn't even be cleared with plows because of all of the downed trees. The ice ended up melting off before any plowing got done but, I lived on one of the roads the county highway department uses to get to the dump. They were hauling all the downed trees and limbs on trailers with limbs sticking out everywhere. Sure enough, one of them tagged our mailbox with a limb hanging off the trailer. Thankfully all it took was a couple phone calls and they paid for a new one. This thread reminds me that I need to get a tow strap for the truck this winter. I'm sure it will pay for itself in short order. Then there's also this...The road ahead of me is a two lane highway maintained by the state, the spotless road to the right is the dead end single lane road I live on maintained by the county. Both were plowed on the same day.
