  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Just talked to 2019 Sierra Owner

    Man that silverado looks really nice - what trim is it? Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  4. 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...

  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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...

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Tune the burb, they really need it with all the extra weight... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Anyone else want the bed storage?

    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
