  1. The overall ratio with the 8 speed/3.23 gives lower low and higher high than the overall ratios with the 6 speed/3.42. (Same when the Max tow ratios are considered -- ie 6 speed/3.73 compared to 8 speed/3.42) If you're happy with the 15 overall ratios, you'll be happy with the 2019 overall ratio. For 2019 RST Standard GU6 Rear axle, 3.42 ratio 1 - Included with (L84) 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine and (NHT) Max Trailering Package. Available GU5 Rear axle, 3.23 ratio 1 - Included and only available with (L84) 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine or (LM2) Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel I6 engine GT4 Rear axle, 3.73 ratio 1 - Included and only available with (B4U) Diesel Off-Road Package.
  2. Some trade because they can, and they have a 'keep it fresh' attitude. Some trade because of financial issues and want to get the money out of vehicle or reduce payments if financed or leased. Some trade because they've discovered the vehicle won't do they job they thought it would do. I know one person that is never happy with any vehicle and keeps trading and changing brands. Always seems to have issues that nobody else with the same vehicle seems to be having. I suspect the local dealers get together and decide who gets stuck with him 'this time'. Sort of amusing to watch.
  3. Rear View MIrror Options

    Could be. On my 18 it's at the top, but they could have move it in the new body style. There is a screen in AA that will give the temp (possibly from phone rather than truck?) but I'm in agreement that temp is one of those things that would be nice to have available, anytime, at a glance.
  4. 3 and 5 are "not available at start of production", so unless you're wanting to wait until it becomes available....and we don't know when that will be For now, might be easier to think of 1, 2, and 3 as unavailable. So, currently only 3 are available to order on 2020HD 2500 AT4: Summit White, Onyz Black, Red Quartz, To be added in future, but date(s) unknown: Dark Sky Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic and Pacific Blue Metallic, Brownstone Metallic
  5. Kinda depends if it's a 'Custom Trail Boss', or a 'LT Trail Boss'. They have different starting places in the line-up. Work Truck, Silverado Custom, Silverado Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, High Country AT4 slots between SLT and Denali Sierra, SLE, Elevation Double Cab, SLT, AT4, Denali Crew Cab
  6. Rear View MIrror Options

    Seems then that AA should not take over that top strip on the screen where the temp/compass info is located. (the other 95% of the screen should be enough to display the phone projection - imho)
  7. Rear View MIrror Options

    Looked a little more at guide. Standard onLT and above, optional on WT , Custom and Trail Boss UE1 OnStar and Chevrolet connected services capable Compass, located in instrument cluster 1 - Included and only available with (UE1) OnStar. (so compass only comes with Onstar, and on 3 lowest trims, Onstar only comes if ordered) Standard, all trims Exterior Temperature Display, located in radio display
  8. Rear View MIrror Options

    Aren't the ambient temp and compass direction on the audio display? I haven't seen mirror with temp and compass since my 2011. Tailgate camera, temp and compass have always been on radio (which of course gives a much larger camera display) on later ones I'm familiar with. I've been assuming the new for 19 body style would continue to have those features in the audio rather than the mirror. 2019 silverado - auto dimming is standard only on LTZ and HC. Base mirror (no upgrades shown as available) D31 Mirror, inside rearview, manual tilt Std on LTZ and HC DD8 Mirror, inside rearview auto-dimming Optional on LTZ and HC DRZ Rear Camera Mirror, inside rearview auto-dimming with full camera display 1 - Included and only available with (CWM) Technology Package. Not available with (UVI) Trailer Camera Package.
  9. They will all be the new body style, but the production starts are staggered. (wasn't til March 2019 that the reg cab 1500 started production)
  10. Sounds to me like a Honda generator is a better solution. https://powerequipment.honda.com/generators
  11. Glad to hear that it's resolved!
  12. I believe it's just the natural gas / propane capable version that it's not available on. (RPO K4B code not on dmax, because it already has the 2nd battery in the spot for the aux battery) I expect auxiliary battery can be added through parts/accessories How long does the application need to maintain the high draw level? When stationary or on highway? T
  13. Do you think the 220A alternator available on 6.0 (and included on 6.0 snowplow prep) would do the job you need done? Factory duals was available on dmax only and paired the 150A with a 220A.

Fuel the vehicle, fill fluid levels, and check inflation pressure in all tires, including the spare, if equipped. . Read all the information about four-wheel-drive vehicles in this manual. .

To gain more ground clearance if needed, it may be necessary to remove the front fascia lower air dam, if equipped. However, driving without the air dam reduces fuel economy.
