    2017 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain
  1. That's an odd issue. I know a guy with a '17 Chev 1500, lifted 6" and 35's. He's never had issues like that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Truck looks good! I'm surprised your Elevation Edition didn't come with wheel well liners though! My All-Terrain came with them.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Android Auto is also wired. Perhaps they'll both go wireless at some point, but who knows. The Bluetooth on some of the systems is garbage. Not specifically my truck, but my 2016 Honda is continuously getting updates to fix Bluetooth issues. So perhaps Apple and Google don't want to be wireless until everything is stable with all the vehicles and their Bluetooth systems. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Have we ever nailed down the exact cause of this? If one truck has it and another doesn't from the same year, is this a production line QC issue? If this was a design flaw, every '17 with the same specs would shake or vibrate. I haven't felt anything in mine after 5000 kms. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This sounds like they're slightly full of it. It's a bit far fetched to say that it would affect all of those items. Considering they do the same thing with other sizes pre-loaded into their system. Personally, if it's only to adjust your speed 1-3 mph, I wouldn't even worry about having it done. I don't know enough about running tire/rim combos outside of OEM, so I've never had to do it. I always increase the sidewall if I drop rim size, so I'm within the same spec as what the vehicles came with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You're talking about the bar under the pump, correct? Pretty sure mine was also showing full, and then went to what it is showing in this picture. Now it never goes to full. Not sure what's up. But it sounds like you're getting the same thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Which warranty is it going to void?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I can definitely notice mine switch over. It's not as pronounced as the MSDS on the Ram that I owned, but I feel it. I think probably because if I'm light on the throttle, it will sometimes feel as though it's hesitating or trying to figure out whether to be in 4 or 8. I'm going to add a little tidbit in here as well. I had a 2007 Tahoe LTZ that suddenly went into limp mode and threw codes. Traction Control and Stabilitrak lights came on. I had a misfire on cylinder 1, because the intake valve was not opening. I brought it in and they found the issue to be caused by the AFM. They said that it wore out the rockers and wore a lobe off the camshaft. They also told me this was a common problem due to the fact that you're essentially "dragging" along four cylinders when the motor goes into 4 cylinder mode. The cost to tear down the motor was the same as to swap in a used one. This happened at 170,000 kms. Like I said, they dealt with many of these same scenarios. That being said, I bought a 2017 with the same feature, so obviously it didn't sway me from getting a new truck. Perhaps this issue has been worked out in the newer generation motors?

  9. I've owned both. I had a Tahoe LTZ, which is obviously the Brother of the GMC Yukon Denali. For my model year, the difference in "Premium" feel and looks of the interior in the Denali, were superior to my Tahoe LTZ. I had every option available as well, so it was a fair comparison. I don't know how much difference there is now though. I went with the Sierra because I preferred the aesthetics over the Silverado. All of that being said, I have to admit though, I own a 1500 and haven't really had a close look at the 2500 or 3500 HD. I think people sometimes feel better if the interior, where you spend your time anyway, feels or looks more premium, and they're spending 70k on a truck. So maybe that's why they'd choose the Sierra over the Silverado?? Not sure. Personally, I prefer the Sierra. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. LOTS of shopping mall or office building garages are 6'6" clearance around here. Some are more, but generally not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. But is it effectively prematurely wearing it out if it is used in Auto all the time?
  12. I only ask because it comes in 'Auto' from the dealer. I left it in 'Auto' for a while, but then I was told that it wears out the clutch-type device that engages the AWD when you don't really need it. We get five months of snow/winter here, so I usually run in 2WD and shift to Auto whenever we have snow on the roads. I don't really ever drive in 4H at all.
  13. What's the height of your roof now? Basically what I mean is, what clearance is required for you to be able to get into a parking garage. I'm only asking because this is the lift I am considering.. Thanks
  14. I've been told that leaving the truck in 'Auto' is hard on the system. That you should only use 'Auto' when there is a reason to do so..... Any opinions on this?
