7.0 with 8 or 10 speed, led lighting throughout, rear hvac vents, rear heated seats, air suspension as an option, front HD coil spring suspension. Just some ideas...

Great idea! Even though we know next to nothing about the 2017 HD revisions, it's never too early to start discussing what's coming.

 

BTW- might be a good idea to open a 'Medium Duty' sub-forum in the Commercial Vehicles forum for the Isuzu LCF's and Navistar joint-venture trucks.

I'll start by saying I bet these will be 2019 MY at the earliest. We haven't seen so much as a hint of a test vehicle out there. If these were going to be 2018 MY they would be shown at the end of this year most likely and on the lots in Q1-Q2 time frame of 2017 which is a year from now.

 

Curious to see the design direction and options. Maybe some of the luxury car whiners will be made happy with the options, hope they don't make them too car like in design both inside and out; I really liked the 14-15 design a solid throw back.

A new discussion has started up, on the possibility of the 4.5 diesel coming of the shelf , to be used in the future Silverado / Sierra 1500 pickup trucks . Found it at GMauthority .com and Trucktrend .com

You say no aluminum trucks? So what do you think GM is going to do with the aluminum contract it has with Alcola?

The media reports that keep popping up show GM using a combination of materials to reduce weight or improve structure.

       So after the free oil changes I realized it would take at least an hour or a little more to get oil changed for 80$ Even with appointment. And each oil change the dip stick would say its 1qt overfilled.
      so I decided to start changing the oil myself.
      And In doing this I learned a big lesson late in life.
      make sure the damn o-ring is still in the old filter!  This has never happend to me ever!  Embarrassing as heck!
      Oil everywhere, luckily I was out by the old shed and not on my concrete. Had to clean up my toxic waste and now somehow clean the bottom of my truck.
      So even after all that  I'm still changing my own oil from here on out. 
      another thing I learned is that after 5k the oil filter gets really hard to get off. The old filter Deforms from trying to break it free it get so tight.
      i use dexos o- 20w.

      installed the Stampede Original Riderz texture 8626-5 fender flares.  Instructions not the best,  no videos from manufacturer.  However, I am very pleased with the fit and finish.  
       
      The truck looks great and im sold. 
       
      I will be contacting their customer service to give them feedback.  
       
      My next search is for Mud flaps to go with the flares.  I hoping I can use the Husky flaps. 
       
      Attached before and after pics

      I fabricated true dual exhaust for my 2009 Silverado this weekend and have been plagued by horrible drone at 2000 RPM. cat back is 3" exhaust with x pipe right after cats and 10" flex pipes. dual exits before the rear wheel with 5 inch tips. Unsure if I should add a resonator and if so which one. don't want to loose the volume or flow but cant deal with the drone. will post pics of system soon. anything helps
