I see a lot of rumblings about the lifter issues in the newer trucks. My question.. these trucks come with a base 36K/3yr warranty + 60K/5yr powertrain. I assume any lifter/motor issues would be covered under the 60K/5yr part correct? The basic 36K is about to run out on my 2019 - all has been great with the truck, but wanted to make sure I still have engine coverage for a while longer..
Guys - I noticed my trailer lights will blink when the truck is turned off and just sitting there with boat hooked up. I thought something was wrong....but I guess not. So to be clear.. if I unhook my trailer while the truck is locked.. the truck alarm will go off? Or do I need the onstar stuff for it to work?
I got a 2019 RST with every possible option.. and still didn't/couldn't get power side mirrors. Also can't get power passenger seat, and auto dim rear view mirror which I think is absurd. That was the case for the 2019....2020 could be different.
I noticed today the right rear break had a burning smell coming from it when I shut down. I spit on the drum and was sizzling hot. Note, before I was barley using the breaks.. just cruising slow speed through the woods. Something in the rear is bad.. maybe a caliper is locked up? any ideas?
My 8 speed in my RST is butter smooth. I never understood the obsession everyone has with more gears. My 2016 was a 6.2/ 8 speed... it was also butter. Cant argue the 6.2 is nice ... but I will say I don't miss it. The 5.3 trucks this year are faster than ever... and to be honest I can't tell a huge difference from this truck and my 2016 6.2 (which was tuned btw)
I purchased the chip from here - https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2019-silverado-1500-navigation-system-conversion-kit-navigation-radio-upgrade/84531832-p-92300645.html OEM - came with all the factory codes, serial numbers, etc. I told my dealer the price of the chip and they told me they can't get it for that cheap... so I got it online and they programmed in the truck for FREE
some more pics. The box is actually fiberglass molded around that factory box. I need to clean up the amp a little.. but you get the idea. Also - adding a base knob up front is important. This set up is probably the same less $$ as the factory kicker sub.. but I can guarantee it rocks more.
