  1. So after countless searches, I was not able to really find anything useful about the ride quality and stance of the new GM 2” lift. I went ahead and pulled the trigger and put this kit on my High County. I’ll try to give y’all as much detail as I can regarding stance, handling, and overall ride quality but for starters, let’s just say I’m not a bit disappointed! As most of us know, Chevys have quite a bit of factory rake. This kit will NOT cure that as it raises the truck 2” all the way around. However, my specific truck did not have a ridiculous front end squat to

  10. The adaptive cruise control was the WORST feature in the car I rented in Germany, and could NOT turn the damn thing off! There's no speed limit so I would travel at 80 to 90 mph, trucks cannot go above 60 mph so I would have to watch the left lane for a gap so I could jump in and pass the truck. Sometimes, the cruise control would act up and slam the brakes whenever I got too close to the truck in front of me, but the car would not know I already intended to move to the left lane. And then with it going slower, I'd mess up the traffic rhythm on the left lane and watch all the angry glares

  11. Mechanics have electric lifts, electric impact wrenches, containers for used motor oil, filters readily available, oil purchased at wholesale price, etc. or you can do it yourself for a couple hours. My dealership has free lifetime oil change. Midas does it for $19 and throws in tire rotations for free. Or I could buy six quarts of oil for $5 each.. that's $30. I can't buy wholesale. How much is the filter? $10? So that totals $40. So that's spending more time and more money. Error, does not compute, error, error.

  12. Thank you! Lift was $1295 and my local dealership installed it, reprogrammed power steering and front cameras, and aligned it at no charge...hellava deal! Getting 285/50/22 Ridge Grapplers put on this afternoon so I’ll post updated pics.

  13. Mark, I've stayed back on this but felt compelled to respond. I received my treatment at Moffitt in Tampa. It's a ways from you but I stayed on Campus for free at the Hope Lodge. It was nine years this July that I received my last treatment. I've lived a lot longer than anyone would have guessed. Point is, you never know. Good luck.

  17. My 14 has 4 positions on the driver window and the other windows have 3 positions. If you barely pull the button up it will go up and stop as soon as you let your finger off of the button, if you pull it up higher it will go into the second position which is auto up. Same for putting the windows down, if you barely push it down it will stop when you release your finger and if you press further it will put them down automatically.

  18. Thank you for voicing your opinion I was very curious what you thought. If I was towing or hauling something that heavy I wouldn’t have bought a 1500 in the first place. Not to mention you can adjust your lights in about 10 seconds. Not sure why you felt the need to take a dig at me but hey, you just do you.

  21. Have you checked out Fia seat covers. They appear to have a Protector series with a rear seat split seat with center armrest that fits the new body 2019s. You could always email them to make sure the pic is accurate and they have the center armrest. https://gofia.com/product-category/seat-covers/custom_fit_truck/seat_protector_custom_fit_truck/ I have Fia Protector series in my 2013 and they fit nice and tight and seem to wear decently.

  23. I disagree. That may have been the attitude many years ago, but since the Crapotas and Hondas from the 80s and 90s that proved that vehicles could be engineered for long term use and reliability (from a power train perspective) the Big 3 have known that they have to do better and have indeed done better. Now. Crapota and Hondas are not perfect either. they have pattern failures, they have things they don't do well that the domestic products do do well, and so on. Competition is a good thing. So when someone claims they believe a manufacturer is purposely not building something to last, I

  25. So I mentioned this in one of the 2020 HD threads already, but am I the only one that's very disappointed that Adaptive Cruise isn't an option on the new trucks? All the hardware is there, even following distance indicator, but GM didn't include full adaptive cruise control, or better yet, GM's Super Cruise? I am currently in a 2018 F150, after having my 2016 F150 bought back, and my 18 having many of the same issues, and the need to move on from half tons for my travel trailer, I am ready to switch over to Chevy, but I am really disappointed, as I swore my next truck was going to

  26. I was successfully able to swap out my Speedometer on my 2019 Silverado to the digital Cluster from a 19 Sierra Denali thanks to White Automotive & Media Services. It took a bit of effort to get to cluster out but looks Great. Highly recommended the swap

  27. I just spoke to the lock guy and he said to bring it over and they can 'erase' the current keys/remotes and reprogram for the 2 we have so they register correctly. Plan to go there on Monday.

  28. Did mine a couple days ago. I had some left over HVAC aluminum foil tape and taped up the "vents". Then for the flapper mod, I took about 4 1/2" piece of flexible metal strap and made a "U", with equal length's on all 3 sides, tightened it onto the outside of the flapper valve, turned it the direction in the pic, then tightened the inside with the hose clamps. I've driven it a few hundred miles and the tape is holding up fine, and with it being taped facing the inside of the truck, you can't see it from the wheel well. Again, it's not going to make your truck set off car al

  31. When you have time, could you please take a couple pics from straight-on front and back? I'd like to see how far the tires stick out from the fenders. Also, in your estimation, do you think you could get by on 1" spacers?

  36. Hello, Just seeing if GM clarified this topic and if an upgrade or system interface is available? I purchased an LT Trail Boss not even questioning if it had Sirius XM as I’ve had it on every vehicle I’ve owned the last 10 years. It’s standard on vehicles half the price let alone a $50k truck. What is GM thinking! It’s 2019 not 1999! I love the look of the truck, but between the awful throttle response and delayed transmission shifting, and inconveniences like this, I’m regretting switching from RAM.

  37. Nothing extra special but, imho, less rake really makes the truck much more appealing.

  38. Check engine light flashing indicates a misfire. Mine did it at random a couple of months ago, it had a code stored in the computer even though the light went off. Code was for number 5 cylinder. Pulled the plug and it had carbon tracing down the side of the plug. Funny thing is it was a brand new NGK plug. So I replaced it and went ahead and put on new wires at the same time.

  39. Not sure what world you are living in if you think GM paints have no quality issues. The paint is thin and brittle, more than likely due to cost cutting measures imo more so then the water based paint theory as other makes have seemed to figure out water based paint jobs long ago and have a fraction of the issues we see with GM today.

  41. Just my . 02 opinion, but unless the clearcoat is bubbled off the color coat, I'd leave it alone. Sure dealer is repainting, no skin off his nose, he gets paid for repair by GM on a set scale. I wish you luck in getting a costly, durable top line refinishing. Think you have problems now, wait until after a repaint. Original finish is baked on electrostatic colored dust covered by a water based clearcoat that presently matches other panels perfectly in color and reflectivity of finish. The clearcoat/color has to be completely stripped to do it right (clearcoat does not adhere prope

  42. I noticed when the a/c is set to “auto”, and you take a hands free call, the a/c temporarily slows the fan down so it isn’t so loud. As soon as you hang up, it resumes cooling at the rate prior to phone call. Doesn’t shut it completely off, just turns the power down so you can hear. I thought it was cool.
