  1. How’s the mineral green metallic? Show a lot of dirt? Or hide dirt and superficial scratches well like white?
  2. Fly in - drive home The below dealers are known to have lowest advertised prices in the US. The price may include trade in assistance etc. read fine print. Other forum members have purchased from either dealer and have OK to good reviews. Below are GMC but I’m sure someone can add a Chevrolet dealer.

  3. Redwngr - how is your l5p treating you? I like the mineral metallic. Seems like a hard color to find on the lot. Does it show dirt like a dark blue or black color or not bad like a silver or white? Ive been looking for owner reviews on the new l5p. Duramaxfourms? Anywhere else? We have a 14 lml in the family which now has 40k miles and has been trouble free except for oil pressure sending unit and def tank sensor needing to be replaced. I hope we got a good cp4 as I’ve read that’s the one prob with 2011 - 2016 lml.
  4. Very nice! Towing comparison vs your 6.2? Betting more confident, up and down hills no problem, etc. harsher ride and no lane keep assist but... 445hp at 2800 rpm 910 ft lbs of torque at 1600rpm! Oh yeah!
  5. The bad GM steering truck

    Wow, this guy must be really pissed. I was browsing Ebay and came across this. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F282700840433 i thought the steering problems on HD’s were only diesel trucks 2016+ wither the computer assisted steering. This truck is a base gasser.
  6. More 2019 Silverado spy shots. Now with vinyl covering removed. Grill is now partly visible, round wheel wells and dual exhaust. http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2017/10/2019-chevrolet-silverado-1500-spied.html
  7. 300,000 miles

  8. 1988 k1500 rpm

    Yes. It has the F44 semi float 14 bolt rearend, factory trans cooler and factory oversized radiator + 3:73 gears. It was the max tow for k1500 which was 6k or 6.5k lbs. when it was new pulled a 24’ enclosed snowmobile trailer with 4 sleds, gear, etc. total trailer weight was prob 6k. It pulled it but lots of 2nd gear 5k rpm on hills to hold 60. The trailer fought a lot of wind. If if you decide to pull with your truck add a trans temp gauge as the 4l60e is the weak point. I’ve done a trans flush at home with valvoline max life full synthetic atf. Trans is original at 205k and counting. I added a max tow double vision trans temp gauge from Amazon and mounted sensor in pan. Normal towing temp is 185 - 210. Highest I’ve seen is 225 on a long slow 20 mph climb up dirt road where I then pulled over and let it idle and cool down.
  9. The g80 is a low speed locker. Designed for low speed engagement in low traction situations. It will blowup with repeated burnouts. Just ask YouTube ;-) Eaton G80 in action
  10. 1988 k1500 rpm

    Towing in the mountains 5k - 10k feet definitely notice trailer. But for a 20 year old truck it does good. Can cruse 65 70 no prob. Can hold 65 70 on moderate hills, just requires revs. http://www.legendmfginc.com/products/20/Explorer-Cargo-V-Nose-Series
  11. 1988 k1500 rpm

    Prob about 3k - 3500 lbs. a 7x 14 enclosed single axle trailer loaded with camping gear and rzr.
  12. 1988 k1500 rpm

    No redline on instrument cluster on 97 - 99 vortec 5.7 350 befote tune it would shift at 5k after tune it shifts at 5.5 - 5.6k truck only sees those rpms briefly when towing. I have held it at 4K - 4.8k for some time pulling hills in second gear. 4l60e actually drops a few degrees when engine revs are higher vs lugging. My 1979 400 6.6 redline in factory tach is 4.5k and it sounds not happy lol.
  13. Digging up old thread... I’ve been looking for a good deal on a 6.2 gmc crew cab standard bed. Guess I could settle on a short bed but would really prefer standard bed. Its October truck month but now inventory seems low on the truck I’m looking for. Dennis Dillon and Laura gmc have some 2018 in stock but not much of a discount vs the 2017’s. Any other dealers to check that have lowest in nation prices?
  14. Welcome. FYI 2014 - 2015 trucks have 5 yr 100k powertrain warranty 2016 + trucks have 5 yr 60k powertrain warranty Exception is 2500 / 3500 duramax retains 100k powertrain May be helpful if your 8 speed needs a torque converter. There is a long thread about 8 speeds and shudder or rpm varies at a constant speed.
  15. Sorry to hear that. I’d be pissed too. Hopefully the dealer and GM will step up and fix or replace truck.
