    Not trying to be a smart ass or anything, but who is honestly buying a truck for fuel economy???? We aren't talking about a sedan here.... Sent from my SM-N960W using Tapatalk

    Nice! I had a 1965 Impala SS as well. I purchased it back in 1985. It had a 396, 4sp, AC, factory tach, 3:31 rear that I installed a posi in. It took me 25yrs to get it restored but not to factory because a tree fell on it in our yard during a storm. I had to replace the roof and rear quarter panel. It was a really cool car.

    A vehicle is a tool. It provides transportation. It is the worst investment. Your choice. But from your info you like vehicles being you have a new Jag. So are looking for us to convince you not to spend money? I say again, if you like to work, have to have the newest, keep up with the Joneses buy it. If you save the money and invest it you're better off IMO. Nuff said.

    Congrats man! I have to add a +1 for the Corsa Sport. I just picked up my 2015 and the previous owner had the Corsa installed with an Airaid MIT, and it’s one of my favorite things about the truck. I had Flowmaster Super 44s on my 2008 5.3 and I liked it well enough but the Corsa sounds so nasty on startup and when you mash the gas on the move. I’ve had people turn around, laugh, and tell me they thought my truck was a Vette or a Camaro when it started up. That said, on the highway or at a steady cruise, it’s almost silent compared to the Super 44s. Obviously it’s a pretty system comparatively, but I have to say it’s a pretty awesome setup for what you pay. Let us know what you end up getting!

    8 quarts of 0W-20. Doesn’t matter if it’s synthetic or blended, the only requirement from GM is it must be a Dexos rated oil. Dexos is a set of standards an oil must meet to be licensed as Dexos. Not all 0W-20 is Dexos. The Mopar oil I had in my truck was the correct weight but not Dexos and the truck didn’t like it at all. A lot of guys like Mobil 1. It’s kind of the go to oil since it can be had for very cheap with rebates and is Dexos rated. Middle of the road oil as far as quality. Not bad, not great and certainly will do the job oil is supposed to do if you regularly change it. Some premium oils like Amsoil Signature Series are not licensed as Dexos but Amsoil states it exceeds the requirements to obtain Dexos licensure. Lots of guys swear by it. I’m impressed with how low it’s volatility is for such a thin oil. Valvoline Advanced is a full synthetic Dexos oil with very good wear properties and relatively inexpensive at $50 for 10 quarts. It’s higher in volatility so you will likely need to add a quart or two between oil changes. Oil consumption is pretty common in these trucks. Redline has been used successfully by a lot of guys with Hemi engines to quiet down engine ticking. Only down side is it’s expensive. So many other great options out there.

    I've run into the same issue before with Chevy AND Volvo. Generally, loaners are a dealer courtesy. Sometimes it's necessary to schedule non urgent repairs around loaner availability.

    All that weight savings doesn't matter on the freeway when the front end is larger. A brick can only be so aerodynamic. It sounds like everything is bigger on the 19s. From the front profile to the bed and tailgate.

    It just goes to show us all, and the manufactures, that smaller engines and more gears isn't the way to good fuel milage. A big engine using less of it's total capabilities, is more effective then a small engine working hard in all situations.

    My first car was a 1965 Impala SS, my Dad bought it for my in 1976 for my 16th Bday. It had 160k on it and I put another 75K on it with only a timing chain going bad. Wish I still had it, I did end up putting a 327/300hp in it a few years later as the old 283 was weak. Not all were junk. And yes I did tear out the powerglide by backing up and throwing it in gear to spin the tires, Good Times!!!!

    Phil. Did I hear you say that the bottom caps are interchangeable between the oem and 1A auto mirrors? Would that mean that the Intelllihaul cameras/bottom caps would work on the 1Aauto mirrors? Dave

    One of my employees just had a set of the Cooper STT pros installed on his Ford F-250. Good looking tire, looks to be as aggressive as an MT. I'm running the Toyo RT on my 2018 and as far as noise, I can't tell much difference from the Toyo MT's I had on my 2013. So now I kind of wished I would have just went with the MT's on my new truck. The Toyo MT is probably the best looking, quietest, and longest lasting MT out there, but the price reflects that to.

    OMG...11.2 mpg 😐 my 2018 6.2 average is 17.4 (manual calculations not the truck computer) and the truck shows a best of 22.3 mpg. I will say that I’m not driving it really hard but I’m certainly not babyin it either. I have the Borla ATAK CATBACK so I like to hear my investment 😁 I had a 5.3 in my 2008 and it towed my 24 foot Bowrider just fine on our Florida flat roadways. Congratulations on the new ride 👍👍👍 Oh and I have the SLT 4x4 so similar vehicle as far as mpg goes

    Better start liking Ford and Ram as quick as you can. After the recent 2019 Camaro refresh, 2019 Silverado/Sierra, 2020HD, assembly plants closing, cancelling 4+ models, and "shifting focus to electric/autonomous cars" after the US President exited the Paris climate accord and knocked the EPA back a few pegs, I think GM's days are numbered again. After pulling the plug on the US/Canadian workers, it is unlikely our governments will bail them out again and rightfully so. They need to get rid of the Elitist SJW Barra and hire a knowledgeable CEO from within the company, such as Jim Mero. Someone who isn't hell bent on selling us out the Global Warming Banksters and that knows it is not realistic to put all your focus and investment on autonomous cars just yet.

    Yeah I figured everyone would roughly have the same opinion haha. But I have to be honest, I'd probably be giving the same advice if I were you. I think I'm just ready for a change? I dunno. I do need to put about $5k into the truck as it sits now and I think that's what got the conversation going in my head. It also needs a front bumper, had to take the stock bumper off to fit the 37's and never bought a steel one to replace it haha. As most of you've mentioned, the truck is paid off and that is a pretty big benefit in itself. Also, this year range Tundra is known for steering rack issues with larger lifted applications and I kinda just don't want to deal with it anymore. I could put 35's back on it and lower the front coilovers a little which would help, but I don't want to do that I was planning on new rear suspension and a few other things so now is the time to decide if I do it to this truck or a new one. Unfortunately I really like the '19 Silverado re-design much more than previous years because there are some steals out there for 2018 models! Between selling the Tundra and a little extra cash I could have ~$30k to put towards a new vehicle which would keep payments low, yet it's still a payment. Right now I think my impulsive mind is doing the talking and I just feel like a new truck so talking through it outloud haha. I'd be happier with a newer but used Tundra although I wasn't impressed with the differences from what I have now. and I'm really liking the redesign on the Silverado. UGH haha, well I have time, at the very soonest I wouldn't be doing anything for 2-3 months. Lastly, for fun, here is the Tundra as it sits now that I'm considering selling. Yeah yeah I know it needs a front bumper haha

    A Level 3 cam sounds like the typical grind that move the power band higher, losing 30-60 foot pounds of torque from idle and getting it back where most people don't drive daily, above 3500 rpms. Keep lift at or below .502 and duration below 210 and you'll keep bottom end torque.

    Hi there diyer2, Great question. The background image of all the Silverado's was actually taken at the press release event for the 2019 trucks. However, did you know that you can change the banner? If you click the icon in the top right of the page (it looks like an image icon) it will drop down a list of other backgrounds we have. There is a 2011 GMC Sierra in there as well as a Denali. With that said, I think we need to get a 2019 GMC in the mix. I'll see what I can do Josh

    I would definitely walk away from that deal ESPECIALLY if the $47k isn't OTD price. As others have stated, there are much better deals to be had on 2018s. Definitely shop around as you should at least be getting $12-13k off of MSRP before TTL.

    The pure idea behind traction bars and physics of it. 1- distance the stop is off a solid surface= a ton of axle wrap or pinon defection, and at continually changing angles. 2- length of the bars look like they hit the over load leak 3- front mount needs to be solid (look at caltrac or SRC assassin bars) But the whole point is to control IC or move IC. Lifted truck run Longer bars that go to the frame rail under the door. Reason why is IC. the bar is a imaginary line that goes out through the truck so on lifted that axle is so low and the forward point is mid leaf so IC is like back window of truck. And IC is the weight and length of the "lever bar" on the axle. On the stock height or lowered trucks with Caltrac firewall to engine. SRC is front bumper or past. The lake woods are old out dated tech and also had more to do with axle wrap and stiffening up the leafs under load. Traction bars do way more that just that.

    Yes, there’s a setting that turns on the heating & cooling function for remote start. I have a 2014 Sierra Denali & the settings are located in my main settings on the Intellilink screen. One thing to note, the indicators on the seat heater push button will not be illuminated when being activated via remote start.

    I've seen guys use "earth magnets" in the same spot as the felt, but they were only holding their remote up out of the way. My house/work keys are separate from my truck/car keys, so I don't have the key jiggling problem. Fixing to do the same thing, with a "fire/ice" light bar, to my '18 over my "holiday break," later this month. Picked up a Curt 7-pin to 5-pin harness, that I'm going to modify to include a 4-pin for my tow hitch brake light. Debating on taking off the 4" step rail, like the ones in Gunslinger's picture above, and replace them with a pair of these.

    That’s a problem in this country. I think many more people would do this if they didn’t have to worry about benefits like health insurance. Many people are a slave to their current occupation because of this issue.

    When I got out of the Navy in '79, I took my GI Bill to the community college and said I want me an edukation. They said: What do you like to do? I said: I like to help people, you know, like stop at car crashes and stuff like that. They suggested I pursue the Paramedic profession, so I did. Been one (except for a little break in the late 80's) ever since. Threw in the fire side of the biz in the early 90's.....Fire/Medic. Moved up the food chain, found it not to be satisfying at all....remembered what the college asked me in '79, and returned to the "line" in '07...... I LOVE MY JOB

    I agree with Nasty but I would simply have my snow tires mounted on a set of 17" gm oem rims. Sell your Nissan rims to a Nissan owner and everyone will have the correct size, offset and look!

    Wrong. The majority of us HD owners care a heck of a lot more about the looks. We prefer to drive something that LOOKS as good as it performs. Which up until now hasn't been an issue.

    Just picked up my 2019 Silverado High Country in Havana Brown Metallic. It is interesting how the color changes under different light conditions! Only have 23 miles on it and still have a lot to set up. The truck definitely sit higher than the 2016. The seats are firmer and the HUD is awesome! Will update more as I get used to truck.
