  1. Have you always driven a truck?

    Learned to drive and took my license test on an 83 Suburban Diesel. Shortly after had a short stint in an 85 Bronco. Then wasn't in a truck again until I bought my 04 Silverado. Sadly after nine years in that I totaled it and wasn't in a truck for 6 years until I just bought my 2018 a couple of months ago.
  2. Just refinanced mine after making only 1 payment. I would have done it sooner, but needed the title before refinancing. The day the title came in the mail I finalized the refinance. I was also told to wait 3-4 payments by the dealership so they don't lose whatever incentive, but with the crazy 7.24% GM rate that's not my problem. I got a 2.74% rate through my credit union and don't feel bad in the slightest ditching the GM loan. I have near perfect credit and it's ridiculous the rates GM has just to get the incentive. Cut 2 more years off of the term, and plan to pay it off 2 years early so all good in my book.
  3. You can do your own maintenance no problem. I do and will after the 2 "free" ones.
  4. I'm not in Rogers, just happened to find the best deal there at the time I was looking. It's actually about an hour from where I live.
  5. I picked up a new 2018 LTZ Z71 a month ago for 14K off of MSRP. What closed the deal for me was when I was finding used 2017's with around 25K on them for the same price I paid. I finally got back into a truck after totaling my 04 6 years ago and can't believe I waited so long! Love the truck.
  6. All I had to do was put a wrench on it and smack it with a dead blow hammer and it came loose no problem. I did leave the belt on though to help with a little resistance.
  7. So the battery is in the floor behind the passenger seat, dang I didnt know that. So how do you access it without pulling up the carpet etc? There is an access door that has a torx screw in it to open. Then it just pulls off and you have access to the battery.
  8. 113K on my 04 and still going strong. Filter change at 60K and fluid exchange through the cooler line at 84K.
  9. FYI - the dealerships are starting to get them in, I picked up a PF63 yesterday. The only reason the parts guy had even ordered any was because I had asked about them.
  10. Mobil1 now has the M1-212 listed for the 2011 Traverse. It's about an inch longer than the previous filter.
  11. I crawled underneath and took a look at the label on the filter, it says "Replace w/PF48" so I guess I'll use the Wix Filter cross-referenced on the Amsoil site. From the top: From underneath:
  12. Thanks for the info. I probably won't have to change the oil for the first time for at least a month, so hopefully it will become more widely available by then. Even better will be if there is an Amsoil equivalent by then.
  13. I just picked up a 2011 Traverse for my wife yesterday, and in the manual it calls for a PF63 filter. I can't find any information on it (or any cross-reference to other filter brands). The previous filter used on these is the PF48. Anyone have one or changed oil on one that knows the scoop?
  14. I just put these on my 04 a few weeks ago. No complaints so far. I put some reflexes on our Suburban 3 or 4 yrs back and they're still good as well.
