  1. This truck assembly line is months old. These things get worked out over time - dont let anyone tell you buying a first year makeover doesnt matter. All kind of unexpected defects will show up to be corrected at a later build date...
  2. When will we see 2019 discounts?

    GMC may not be dropping as much - I was looking at high country silvys at 8k. Only see one now 8k at vandergrif. I see a GMC at Hiley for 6k off... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  3. When will we see 2019 discounts?

    Seems like way too many issues, was that a 6.2? As for 19s - seeing 8K off top models here in DFW. Gotta wait to see what issues arise and get addressed by factory. 2021 seems like a good year to get in, IMHO...
  4. Im pretty old. I remember a phone was built to take the abuse of my brother and I beating each over the head with the handle. Now a phone gives you all the information mankind has (and frees shelf space formerly occupied by World Books), but breaks with a drop. Times change, and its a trade off between better and worse... When 9/10ths of the world was still using oxen plows for agriculture, we had the cost advantage building heavy duty steel goods that lasted decades. Now materials are much more in demand, and cheap labor is running out. A truck built to last 50 years, meet safety / fuel effeciency standards, and be functional would cost much more than any regular consumer would be willing to pay... In the end, Ill just want the best truck they make right before they start driving themselves. I dont want anything steering, stopping, or starting that isnt me... Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  5. High Desert Package

    Look up avalanche bed slide. The best mod ever for one of these designs. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Potential Buyer

    The fullsize will be smoother riding and more lux, but the more features the more that can go wrong eventually. I found those long lasting asian cars of the past were very sparse feature wise, and as tech has ramped up, reliability has decreased. Either will last a long time, but deals are to be had on the gms right now. If my 5 1/2 year old avalanche wasnt still mint, I would be all over these 2018 deals right now. Just for perspective - local dealer sent me a 1k off best deal offer, and my gm card has 3k added to it. I could probably get close to 20k off sticker! I just cant trade a perfect paid off truck. I probably wont ever get rid of it... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. This. Saved my ass yesterday at son's baseball tourney. Ran a bunch of gear to truck in major heat and left keys with wife. Luckily had my phone. Almost at the end of the free 5 years, and not sure I will pay monthly for it. Maybe $25 a year would do it... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  8. Just talked to 2019 Sierra Owner

    Man that silverado looks really nice - what trim is it? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  9. Dented Front Bumper

    Either paintless or pull it off and whack it a few times from the back with a hammer. Wife had an angry dent from so hit n run door dinging **** I never thought would come out. $125 to mobile pdr service, and you cant even tell. Check it on you tube - interesting stuff...

  10. I like oem 6 inch. Oem all season matts too - weathertechs are a little too much, like a wt rubber floor... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Good job! The shoulder and head room are worth it alone. Silver stays cleaner, and an LT is easy to modify on the cheap. Bed cover and storage next - keep an eye out on craigslist for wheels, rails, steps, etc. Mods are fun... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah, I have a honda fanboy at work who conviently overlooks every thing that goes wrong with it (yall are trained that way as to not knock the honda perception), yet pulls out the microscope when another brand is involved. 30 times is just stupid - lemon law that shit. GM trucks are quarter million mile vehicles - just like the OLD hondas of yore before they actually started adding tech to them. Ive owned both, and Ill take a body on frame truck...

  13. High Desert Package

    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
  14. High Desert Package

    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
  15. HID or LED

    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
