Not to beat on a dead topic, but I took my truck in today (65K miles) for the tsb to be done. I don't mind paying for the transmission fluid to be changed because I almost see that as a wear and tear item, but what really pissed me off was paying for a software update from GM. You would think with all the know issues with this transmission GM would do what they can for free to fix it.
I came into the forum to ask this question. I don't have an AT4 yet, but am considering it for my next truck. With the Ford Tremor 250 having an available factory warn winch and of course the Ram 2500 Power Wagon having a standard winch, I would have expected GM to offer it as an option. I really like my current 2017 GMC 1500 AT, and my prior truck was a 2014 GMC 1500 AT, but I'm really disappointed that GM doesn't offer a factory winch and I'm wanting to move up to the 2500's payload. I'm probably not in the market for a while yet so there's time for an aftermarket solution, but you would think with an off-road oriented truck, they would have benchmarked the competition better.
I have seen that ad, and really like the concept of having a wide base and having it somewhat suitable for off-road use for that reason. However, the price is up there. I don't have space for a high lift jack and have been looking at this cheapo jack on Amazon. On the one hand, it's so much cheaper than the safejack I'm tempted to try it, but then again, I don't want it to fail in the field when I need it most...so there's that. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003ULZGFU/?coliid=I2BJVXU0KLAU91&colid=3KNBG30GB8NWO&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
If it matters. my 2017 has the same issue, slight up and one cable slightly different than the other.
I used to have a 2014 GMC 1500 AT, I now have a 2017 GMC 1500 AT. On both trucks, the passenger side mirror would only power fold when it felt like it, about 1/3 of the time. Sometimes I could just hit the button a couple of times and then it worked. On the 2014, I took it back the dealer and because it was intermittent, he couldn't find anything wrong with it. So yeah, strange stuff.
Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) IF NO: Why not? (No time/money, inexperience, no vehicle) - Yes, I accessorize my truck, and in order of priority, I choose based on 1) Quality, 2) Reviews (to judge quality), 3) Look and 4) price. However, if something is a 9/10 and is 25% of the cost of something that is a 10/10, I would probably go with the cheaper thing. But, if comparing a 5/10 vs a 9/10, I'm going with the 9/10 most of the time regardless of price. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) No, price is not the main factor for something I'm keeping a long time, especially with negative reviews, as that would be wasting money. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? No, I would not. For me, function come first, form second.
Thanks for all your tips, I've been looking for one recently and have been considering the viair lines. I think I'm going to go with the slime, like the pressure gauge near the tire instead on the pump, hard case, etc. But lots of good info in this thread.
Go to the first post in this thread. This whole thread is about what we are going to shown on March 26. So far, we have only seen the SLT and Denali trims. We haven't seen what a 2019 All Terrain or All Terrain X looks like, they haven't had their photos released. Just like we don't know what a 2019 SLE is yet, we don't know what a 2019 AT is yet. That's all I was saying. I'm interested to see what the AT package is going to look like in the next generation. As someone who is on his second AT, I'm fully aware that it's just a package on a SLT, but that doesn't mean I'm not curious what's on the 2019's.
Yes and Yes, but that's referring to the 2018's, we haven't seen what they have in mind for 2019's yet.
I can't believe that they don't have a GMC version of the trailboss. As someone on his second All Terrain, I hope there's some news in this category.
I really, really, miss the HUD I had in three of my Pontiacs. Neat to see this is coming to the trucks, might put a little dent in the whole 12" RAM display talk. Of course, the 12" is only their top model, and I would assume the HUD is only on the top GM models, so might never see it, but still...
Another thing to consider re fleets - it helps to have the fleet the same size. So if you have accessories and other add-ons needed for your fleet, you know they will fit. It usually takes about a year for the aftermarket to catch up to changes in bed design, etc. I work in operations for my local fire department, we have a limited set of spare parts sitting on the shelf for our existing fleet, we like as many things to be interchangeable as practical. We know things change, but add-ons are expensive, if we can use up our existing inventory first that's a plus.
I may be one of the odd balls, but I generally don't care what it looks like overall. There's only so much you can do with the exterior of a truck and still have it functional. I did buy a GMC because I like the looks a little more, but assuming GMC didn't exist I would have bought the Chevy, not because of how it looked, but because of how it performed. I spend my time on the inside, so the cabin, engine, ride, capabilities, quality, and features matter more to me than where a few crimps in the sheet metal are. None of the current big three trucks are ugly, they're just different. In fact, I like the looks of the RAM Rebel a little bit more than the current Chevy, but having owned a RAM, I probably won't own another one due to mechanics of the vehicle, not the appearance. I'll withhold judgement on the 2019s until I know the specs.
I've noticed the same. I had a 2014 and recently got a 2017 back in October. My 2014 seemed to have better reception. I do think the 2014 buffered longer than the 2017's, so maybe that was it. Its gotten so that I can predict which areas will cut out, so I suspect there is something blocking it, whether it's another signal or something I can't see, but there are certain routes I drive where I know "here comes a dead spot".
