  1. I was denied to the club for *only* purchasing one new vehicle (my 2017) and two used ones. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. Trailer brake controller without tow package

    I towed a small trailer most of a summer years ago in my 99. RCSB with the 4.3 V6. I actually got arrested and publicly flogged for doing it. Would not recommend
  3. I'm still surprised they'd length the whole truck. It's only 2.5" on the CCSB but my garage only has about a foot to spare. And my garage is older and slightly larger than a lot of the newer houses out there.
  4. I thought I had invented the bungies across like that. I do 3 bungies. One low horizontal, and two X's from top to bottom. Works really well for most things. I'd do the 2x10 route if you're hauling lots of plastic sacks of stuff.
  5. Sounds to me that the OP has the dreaded combo of some bad vehicle luck and a crappy dealer. Any other dealers around town? We have 2 and I'm never going back to the one closer to my house!
  6. Are you saying that a 6'-5" man can sit behind the 6'-5" driver of your truck WTF kid of truck do you drive? Or how short are your legs in your family? I'm 6'-5" and there's not enough room behind the driver's seat for my in my 2017 crew cab.
  7. Are you serious Clark? I'm pretty sure I've lost that bit of my hearing where my front parking sensors go off twice a day, every day! Why is is so loud???
  8. The soft-close tailgate is one of those stupid, unnecessary features that I could now not live without. I mean, I'd been driving trucks without that feature for a good 30 years without that . . .
  9. The GM ads in the last decade or so have just TERRIBLE. ANd that's an understatement. I bought my trucks in spite of their ad campaigns. Not because of it.
  10. You'd think with all the words in the English Language you could come up with an original name for a car. But I don't necessarily have a problem with it. Depending on the vehicle, of course.
  11. I know on my 2017 it's the fuel pump. Does it after it's been sitting overnight, but not when I get in it after work. Must be like a 12 hour window?
  12. Sure sounds like something with the Onstar app. I've started my wife's car in our garage from my office. Luckily I realized it right away. Maybe the dealer was setting up another vehicle and typed the wrong VIN. Or something is just haywire with whatever it is that receives the signal to do that. I'd also be curious what happens if you disable the remote start.
  13. I bought mine off Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQVOJV0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Seems like a higher price than I paid, but my memory might be off. Not sure why GM doesn't send these trucks out with these in.

    So you're angry with GM because the Rhino liner failed on your nearly 20 year old truck? Have fun with your Toyota. Hopefully you don't put Rhino liner in it
