  1. Lol, everyone I know who had one says same thing - miss it. I get tempted with new tech & better mpg, but nothing rides like it, and it just barely fits in garage where a cc truck will not . Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. Its just like the avalanche, not 100% but close. You gotta make sure all the tracks and seals are clean, and not folded over which is easy to do putting on a panel wrong. Rain doesnt get in mine, but high pressure sprays from carwash can let a little by. The saddlebags are waterproof though... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  3. Terrible for highs. They do not light road at all, and only brighten signs a bit. Stick with halogen for highs... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  4. I would rather have a dealer lift a truck and put it under warranty. I think the issue with dealers doing them is the massive markup - like the $400 front 2 window tint or the $500 paint protection (aka coat of wax)... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  5. Tune the burb, they really need it with all the extra weight... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  6. Actually, you are missing the point. I also have never had a leak in over 30 years of driving. They all dont leak. A pano roof is a chick option - nut up and be happy with a rectangle which is plenty vitamin D for a dude... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  7. Keep what you got. Last time I was at midas for a leak around the manifold header (caused by dealer, but thats another story), I asked him what he recommended - a borla or corsa? He looked at me sideways and said, "The one you got is the best. Why you wanna mess with it?" Hes right too: high flow, no drone, and durable as hell... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. I agree 100%, but I wonder how much it would cost to add these parts. They wouldnt discount the high desert models nearly as much last summer, and most were close to 70k. Still didnt ride as nice as the real thing, and wouldnt fit in my garage anyway... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  9. All of em are bright but they just cant focus on a spot out in front where you need it - especially in the rain. You will see signs lit up way down the road, just not the road. Hids are better, as are silverstars with led fogs. Ive wasted a lot of money learning... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Looking again, just the washer... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah you're right, its opposite on mine where the washer and screw have rust, and the frame does not besides the places where the lifts have hit it over the past 5 1/2 years for service. They only salt the roads here on occasion, and I am vigilent about getting it off asap... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  12. How often did you do an under carriage wash? My 13 has very little rust, and surface rust at that. I run through an automatic wash whenever its dirty like 2 times a month. This is as important as oil changes... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  13. 1st year model change is no myth. New tech has to be fleshed out in the real world over time. Ever heard of AFM? You think the new start-stop engine will perform flawlessly without any revision for this truck's entire life cycle? Good Luck! The issue is working out the kinks in the manufacturing process; a computer simulation can't predict a variance that occurs on the line. It takes several thousand miles for these things to show up . Spend your money as you like, but best best is a heavily discounted 2018 right now - hell, they may have finally fixed the shake! Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  14. Oh yeah, its essentially an avalanche conversion. I debated finally trading mine in but they were not coming off them as much as I would like... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. Im sure you can caulk that in there if you wanted, but you would probably be better ordering parts of the high desert package for a 2014-18... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
