  1. New or used, you cant expect to get your money back in 8 months, and with the pandy, 2020 trucks were almost sticker for a bit; unfortunately you purchased at the worst time ever. Right now, new are back to 10k off - I like to buy when they hit 15k+. Try TRED - I sold a BMW on there for 16k when trade in was 10k. I dont know your situation, but I would keep a 6.2 as it will eventually demand more (and its bad ass). Losing 18k is a grand a month for a year and a half - gas or payment or whatever wouldnt make me lose that much. Good luck!
  2. Its still 4wd because you can turn it off to save mpg. Nicer to have the option, but Ive only used 4low a couple times in 25 years; 2wd/4hi with g80 works well for most tasks except rock crawlin or stump pullin in the mud (great for commercials, but not really common for 95% new truck owners in the burbs). Last stump I pulled was in 2wd in M with a little slack in the line, and it worked fine... Sent from my SM-T500 using Tapatalk
  3. Its a 2 beer job - and who doesnt like day drinkin? Rotella gas truck had a rebate ending up at $9 per 5qt - thats good oil for a hell of a price though normally decent synthetic oil is around $20 per 5g. 50 bones is about standard these days with a free change every 4 changes due to the 2 qts left over after each change...

  4. Smart choice. Never felt as safe flying down the road on an AT. I went conti terrain contact in HT (wanted ATs for longest rime). Very smooth and excellent in rain... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. It may be a very first edition 15 someone added Z71 badges to (LTZ were not Z71). If your shark fin is black, its first edition; body color fin is 2nd edition. That year they started selling in Feb of 2014, then they did a lot of changes in a mid year refresh to fix some issues and add content. They added Z71 then as well, so you may have what would be a Z71 spec pre Z71 if that makes sense. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. Do not buy a first year vehicle - are there any 2020 suburbans around you? Those are well sorted in their 5th year of production, and gotta be discounted steeply. Lease one of them. There are always issues with the manufacturing process on first year vehicles that eventually get sorted out, as well as unexpected flaws that reveal themselves once people start driving them in real life. Of course a 12 year old platform will be more reliable, but so dated.
  7. A few young (under 30) coworkers have had bad reactions to the first shot - possibly because they had previous asymptomatic exposures so this is what second shot will look like. Why the **** would I accept getting sick as ****** for a second shot? I take the flu shot every year after getting it really bad, and have never expected to get really sick. I was pretty set on getting it until that. Gonna see how things flesh out after the second round in a couple weeks. Im not fat, over 65, nor do I have cancer (which is a major comorbidity - go figure)...
  8. You talking a 2021 at4 yukon or truck? Either way it wont work on back since truck has rear leafs and new suv is now IRS vs. solid axle. If its a K2 at4 truck (14-18) the front will work on burb, and you can get a spacer for rear springs cheap. A daystar 3/4" will level it out, and only cost $40 for on amz. Of course a 2" front level kit is close to the same price, so see if he's doin a deal. Heres my 18 burb leveled with 1.5" level and daystar on 275.65.18s. Drives stock...

  9. On my second set. They are durable, keeps the dust down, and you can make back your investment when you sell - sold my avalanche covers for $125 on flea bay after using them 4 years so keep the box... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Rotella Gas Truck is better than M1 if you believe you tube. I like this guy's experiments...
  11. Yep. You still gotta pay for the tire work from locals though...
  12. So I tuned mine today. Had to go back and forth 4 times between my computer and truck for it to work. I expected it because I researched it, and was actually surprised I got the $40 17+ ECU unlock on a weekend. Very happy with it...
  13. Well, I'm pretty cheap, but I went with Corsa because I HATE drone. Put on a Corsa Sport, and as advertised, there is no drone at speed. But damn it sounds great when you push...
  14. My first custom tune was a Diablew tune on my 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche with a used diablo tuner off flea bay; cost me about $350 total and it was well worth it; had greatly improved drivability that was most apparent when I took off the tune to drive it in for the trade - I couldn't believe how bad the stock slurped. The trade is a 2018 Suburban LT 4x4 5.3, and though I want to try a BB tune, they have crept up to around $700 these days. I'm sure they are great, but there is only so much a tune can do, and 7 hundy is most of what my new Corsa cost (it alone is fantastic). Instead, I opted for the diablosport tuner to again let Lew tune after I got my new exhaust installed, and flea bay has tuners. Much to my chagrin, I picked up a refurb factory diablosport for cheap, and put on the "Jammer CAI" tune that was on the tuner. Apparently, its a 91 tune specifically for that brand CAI, but since I have a Airaid Jr and a new Corsa sport, I figured an increased airflow tune would apply until I got a few tanks of 93 through the truck. I added 11% throttle increase plus AFM off to that tune and kept everything else the same. Its sweet. I'm not sure if I got lucky or what, but this thing breaks loose. Could be the Corsa effect (which is, BTW, the best exhaust I have ever owned), but man I am one happy mofo right now...
  15. Got a Corsa Sport put on today, and I absolutely love it. Sounds very vet-ish with my airaid jr mit set up. Take your foot off the gas (hard to do, really) and its gone. Cant hear it at 80. Ive had flowmaster, magnaflow, and glasspacks in the past - they all drone at highway speed. Corsa does what they say they do and ARE MADE IN AMERICA. Life's too short for ******, and you do get a lifetime warranty... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
