I stopped in at my dealer today to just chat with a friend (sales manager) and he was showing me the truck he ordered in for himself.

Apparently the rear slider is no longer available indefinitely on the 14's. Too many problems; has anyone here experienced this?

Just find it odd of GM to discontinue the non-step rear bumpers (Denali specific) and now the window?

I have to rear window also, no issues. I am getting the regulator replaced under the the TSB that was issued in November. I've had no issue's with it, just getting it replaced.

As far as I know, the sliding window is still on my build sheet for my Christmas Baby Denali. I guess I won't know for sure until it's delivered. I'm guessing the TSB takes care of the issues, it's just a matter of making enough replacement parts and having anything left over for production.

 

IIRC, the non-step bumper was never available on the Denali. They came on the earlier All Terrains, the Denalis always came with painted step bumpers and the All Terrains eventually transitioned to them after a while.

Yes I ordered and received the rear slider as well. No problems yet: What was the TSB?

However I placed my order at the same time a friend did.

 

He ordered a A/T with the non-step and thats what he received.

I ordered an HC with non-step and received the step - even though my build sheet said painted: non step.

"Originally" = being 3-4 months back: you had the option of having painted step or non-step rear bumpers on the A/T, HC and the "future" Denali. Sometime in the past 4-6 weeks (I was caught right in the middle of it) GM decided to make the painted non-step bumper Denali specific which meant all A/T and HC trucks must get the painted step.

I hope your truck arrives as you ordered. Please keep us updated so we know the status on whether or not this option is still or will be available in the future.

Thanks, I'll definately let people know when it shows up.

I don't think this is accurate though. It is my understanding that Denalis have always come with the painted step bumpers and the non-step painted bumpers are no longer available on anything. In short, all current bumpers are step--chrome for most models, painted for Denali, All Terrain and High Country.

I ordered my truck on 12/6 and the rear slider was available and selected. The order was confirmed on 12/9 and the rear slider was NOT included and the price of the truck was reduced by $250.

 

When I inquired as to why, I was told that there were known problems with the window unit and that the supplier was not cooperating with GMC to resolve the problem, so they dropped the vendor and discontinued the option until a suitable replacement can be found.

 

True / false - I don't know, but this is what I was told.

My regulator messed up the 2nd week I had it. Took about 2 weeks for a replacement to come in, but it's been trouble-free ever since. That was in July, so it's been a while.

Mine was ordered with the slider on 10/29, picked up at dealership on 12/16, and the slider was deleted. Even the sales guys at the dealership are pissed about it.

 

I'm a senior engineer at a technology company that is a supplier, and we design and manufacture all types of high-technology components. I'm sure we would be willing to look at taking over the design of this if GM wants. We could probably turn it into a fully functional sliding touchscreen if that's what they wanted. Who is the current manufacturer of the slider?

When did they discontinue it all together? My truck was built in sept and I have one that works great so far.

I'm sure it was built to a price point... they gambled and lost. Anything can be made near perfect with enough time, money, and resources.

I think they should go to a Tundra style retracting window. On of the few things I miss form the Tundra, Nice to have the whole rear window go down.

      Truck started to make a squeaking noise this weekend, took it to the dealership on Monday. Dealership called Tuesday and said that they could not find anything wrong with the truck and that this sound is normal. Take a look at this video so that you can hear and understand what I am talking about.  https://youtu.be/aERzjGAX-aU
      Does this sound normal to you guys? I also put water on the belt and the noise was persistent so it does not appear to be the belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hey all, SO let me start by mentioning I changed out my stock lower ball joints to Moog lower ball joints on November 5th, 2016. This being said, I removed the stock LBJ after 40k miles (20k on level w/ stock tires, 20k on 6" RCX knuckle and spacer lift w/ 35x12.5 tires and 20x9 rims @ 0 offset), and it looks like I am needing to replace them AGAIN! Barely even 10k miles later I am seeing the same irregular wear pattern as when I had the stock ball joints. I greased them when new and at oil change (every 5k mark). I got the vehicle aligned the following day after I installed the new LBJ btw, and I also changed the UCA to cognito arms at the same time.
       
      What I am curious of is if the issue is lying in the stock rancho shocks and the spacer lift maybe being too rough on the LBJ on the truck, this being said, does anyone else with more knowledge/experience in this area have any advice or other possible causes? I have searched the internet and haven't found anything really definitive so Im at a loss. I am at 50k right now and will have the truck at the shop within the week to get the alignment checked as well as other routine maintenance performed.
       
      I am just at a total loss and don't want to run through these new tires nearly as fast as I went through my old ones (barely even 25k miles before the edges were at 10% tread remaining at best)
       
      The rear tires are wearing beautifully but the fronts are wearing from the outside, in. The outer scalloped edges are all even and smoothed out, whereas the interior side of the tire still has extremely defined edges that look practically brand new
       
      I'll get photos and attach for reference.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      alternator reads 13.6 volts charging. Voltage on the dash is 12. As the vehicle runs the voltage drops slowly until 10 volts. Any suggestions to what the issue is? Brand new battery solid ground on it and positive.
