  1. I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 slt ccsb 5.3 z71 4x4 (don’t know the final drive), and it fits our family extremely well (5yo and 3yo, both in booster seats). Just picked up an extang solidfold cover on CL and I think we’re set for whatever hauling, travel, towing, and camping we might want to try. The boys love it, I love it, even my wife enjoys driving it. I personally think it is a better choice than a Tahoe or the like, it just seems more versatile and honest. But to your original question, it depends greatly on speed and condition. City/short trips, maybe 16 or 17. Highway at 65 gets 22 or 23, push 75 and it’ll creep down to 21ish. I’m pretty light on the throttle and gentile on the brakes. I’ve teased 24-25 out of it a few times (26.4 is my record, downhill for 25 miles ;) , but I was being silly and trying to hypermile a big, flat nosed truck. M. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Ziplock bag. But for $15ish this is perfect. High Road Auto Document Case and Glove Box Organizer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HZRTDE?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
  3. Heat gun, maybe? If you want to try it on the smallest spot to test... at your own risk, no guarantees. less-is-more would apply for sure. Approach the area from a distance and go slow, and don’t keep the heat in one place. Back off the instant it starts to show a change, the residual heat will finish the job. If it works, share some pics! M.
  4. Great info. And if you’re having a problem with AC mildew odors, be sure to check the condensate drain. Any pooled condensate will be a breeding ground for mildew and funky odors.
  5. Looks really good! If you haven’t fully assembled it already, the finishing touch would be to follow up with a few light coats of clear for protection. In any case, nice work. M
  6. If your truck is NOT e85 ready, I'm going to make a WAG that it is the harness connector for the not installed e85 sensor. It should have a barbed push fastener on it that will fit in a hole on the underside of the frame. If the truck is behaving normally, re-secure the harness and GTFO. Good luck. M.
  7. Mine is aligned at *exactly* the same bad angle as the OP. 2015 Sierra SLT CC 5.3. Probably a misaligned placement device, or the line worker just wasn't paying attention. Who knows.
  8. I just found and bought a 2015 Sierra 1500 SLT crew cab made in Mexico, and so far have had no serious complaints. I did have a leaking rear axle seal replaced (under the drivetrain warranty) but that's it. Unlike you, I did not know anything about the various reported issues like the infamous shake, wonky transmission shift points, etc. I've been driving a little paranoid, but can't say I have experienced any of the common complaints. So for me, it's just the usual owner maintenance and wear items at 40k miles. So far, so good. Good luck! /M
