  1. Fan speed with Phone Call?

    Gotta love remote start...:) so long j-ten-ner
  2. Opinions on towing?

    ... and anything beyond that could be a "spare" or "leeway" left by the engineers. For your safety in hairy situations. If you stay within the ratings, your truck combined with your driving skills can handle these situations. If you overload your truck, you lose that side of the equation and you depend solely on your abilities. Good luck. so long j-ten-ner
  3. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    I bought a brand new leveling kit for my truck. Quite expensive though...;)
  4. I know what you mean. I did the same with my transmission, I adapted to it. But doesn't it strike you as odd that you have to adapt to new technology? That's not my understanding of moving forward. It's a step back. I am the one who's calling the shots, not the new technology. so long j-ten-ner
  5. 1 MPG in the city is a nice improvement. And, who knows, maybe the big improvement in fuel economy comes with hauling and towing. With the AFM and towing it would stay in V8 mode all the time. But with the DFM the engine might be able to run on 6 cylinder on flat roads w/o much headwind. That's where my gain would be since I'm using my truck for what it is. so long j-ten-ner
  6. Why did this GMC 2500 catch fire?

    Close to the end of the video, is she saying "You still want 25 for it" ? That's just mean! lol I'd have taken a 12 gauge and shoot the motor. Screw the other people... so long j-ten-ner
  7. Can I tow this?

    Personally I'd never max out the capacity of my truck. 80% is my bench mark. That means for my truck around 7,700lbs. But the weight is one thing. Towing a big trailer like this with a half ton may cause trouble at high winds. so long j-ten-ner
  8. Georgia hands-free cell phone use starts Sunday

    Just to change the law doesn't mean anything. You have to "hurt" people to make them realize the seriousness of their wrong doing. Here in BC Canada they caught a few drivers 3 times within 10 blocks and they got away with 500 bucks or something like that. Considering that (in BC) more people die in traffic caused by distracted driving than by DUI, the fines are way to "moderate". If it was me, I'd impound the car, auction it off and give the money to victims of distracted driving. so long j-ten-ner
  9. 2018 High Country disappointed

    I don't care as long as there are no rainbow colors. so long j-ten-ner
  10. lol fair enough. My point was to show that there are fifth wheels available for half tons and to take some of the tension off this thread so long j-ten-ner
  11. lol Back in Germany, while I was fueling up my J10 at the gas station, a guy came and asked how much fuel the truck is burning per 100km. I said: "I don't know. I never get that far..." so long j-ten-ner
  12. Just for good measure ;) http://escapetrailer.com/trailers/the-5-0-escape/ so long j-ten-ner
  13. A 2019 Silverado with the Z-71 package (2-speed TC), 8L90, and 3.23's, will still have more aggressive gearing than a 2014-18 Silverado/Sierra 1500 with the 5.3 with the max tow package. ...now lean back, close your eyes and imagine that you have a 2-speed transfer case on top of that....aaaaaaaaahhhhh. so long j-ten-ner
  14. That's why she is now your ex ... so long j-ten-ner
