I'm with you guys. I've always been a GM buyer but when they can't fix the radio how are we supposed to be happy about our purchase. I keep coming back to this forum to see if there has been a fix and to find the newer models are also bad. Sorry GM you had a lifelong supporter but no longer. You had your chance. I used to look down on the other manufactures and now I'm looking at them.

I've been test driving other trucks. I drive the tundra and it didn't seem very refined. I could feel vibration in the steering wheel when accelerating. It reminded me of an older truck in regards to power train. As others experienced they don't offer much off either. I looked at the Ram Rebel too. Nice look but I'm on the road a lot and I see a lot of Rams/dodges that have rust. I don't think they are as advanced as ford, Gm and Toyota in regards to sheet metal protection. I really don't think there is a better truck than the Silverado/Sierra right now. I haven't checked out the fords yet though.

I've also looked into the Alpine replacement too but then what. You lose the ambient temperature and the dash/guage/ stereo integration. Its very frustrating to jump into a new truck and the FM stereo doesn't work. It's the simplest thing in the truck. My other frustration has been with the lacking vents in the rear for A/C. I rode in the back once and was hot while the people upfront froze. I have too much invested in my truck to move on though. Just saying that I share you frustration through all of this.
Here is an add for it
I read a ton of reviews on fm boosters and almost all were bad. The only one I found that wasn't was the one from Winegard. It's been discontinued so I found mine on eBay and paid like $60 for it. I had to use an antenna adapter because of the gm connector but no biggie. It noticeably helps but it's still not close to perfect.
This doesn't sound like the update I was looking for. If the reception is still bad then it's not worth it. I have an inline fm booster that helps but it's still not acceptable. Beyond frustrated!

ace ventura replied to Gabe63's topic in For Sale/WantedI have a set of dl3 mirrors brand new not on my truck and I would want your power fold mirrors. Can we work something out?
