  1. I started a thread the other day about rst and ltz the differences.Anyways most ltz’s I see are loaded up really nice but I don’t really want one that loaded.So I talked with my local Chevy dealer today and asked about ordering a truck.Told him what I was looking for and he said ok yeah most of them do come pretty loaded.So I asked if I order a truck would I need to put anything down and he told me yeah I would need to put down between 3k and 5k to order one.Totally floored me I could See 500 to a 1k In case you back out of it but dang.Anyone else on here ever had a quote like that?
  2. I was building trucks on chevys site and a rst crew cab starts at 47,790 and Liz 50,550.I know you get leather with Ltz and chrome bumpers but what are the other differences?Kind of hard to tell the way the site is just seems hard to tell what you are getting.I started adding options on the rst and I was getting above the price of the ltz.
  3. So my lease is up in 12 months I emailed about 12 local dealers today to see what kind of deal I can get on a rst with the 6.2 .I don’t have to get rid of the truck I have about 8k left to put on it before lease miles are up.There are a lot of them around here right now do you think they are willing to deal right now?
  4. I have been leasing trucks for years because buying a truck is throwing more money out the window.I just leased a 18 Silverado for 300 a month for 24 months it cost me out of pocket 700 dollars.The sticker price on the truck was 48k so if you would have bought it I am sure you would of ended up in the high 30k range.So in 2 years of driving the truck with the payment plus the 700 out of pocket that is 7900k.If I were to buy it I lost that as soon as I drove off of the lot because it is a used truck.Unless you have roughly 40k laying around to pay cash and are keeping the truck for 20 years there is no reason to buy unless to a lot of miles on it.If you do put a lot of miles on then you don’t get squat when you sell it.Just my opion erveryone has there own.
  5. I would go for that deal.26k on trade in for a Colorado is good in my opinion.I don’t know what they sticker for or what you paid but I didn’t get much more for my 16 Silverado lt.
  6. Thanks but there is no rpo sticker in the glove box.There is a sticker on drivers side that I scanned for the rpo codes but it will not list all the codes.lol.It has 4 commas at the end like there are more codes but it will not display them all.I thought they might stamp axle ratio on the rearend cover but do not see anything.Guess I will have to contact gm and see if I can get a build sheet.
  7. Hey guys just picked up a 2018 2lt with 5.3.I didn’t get a window stick with it because it was a demo and forgot to ask salesman for it.I was wondering how to tell what axle ratio I have because there is no sticker in the glove box.I have tried the vin decoders but it doesn’t say anything about it.Is it stamped into the axle or something?Any help would be appreciated.
  8. I like the looks and all the new features of the new truck.It will work out perfect for my 16 Silverado lease because it ends September of 19 and they will have them discounted by then.I hope they have all the recalls and bulletins done by then .lol.Looks like they put some real time into this truck.
  9. Too much technology on these tricks nowadays.That is what happens and yeah it sucks I have been there too.Good luck with your next purchase but every truck forum no matter what make all has their problems.I have had Ford,Chevy and Dodge and none of them have been perfect but maybe you will have better luck.
  10. I have a 2016 Silverado double cab with the 5.3 and 3.42 rear end.I get confused with all the stuff I read on the internet with gvw .What would my truck tow to be safe?
  11. My lease was up on my 14 4.3 and got a good deal on a 16 with 5.3 and there is a heck of a difference in power.I have a 3200 lb travel trailer and with the 4.3 it towed it fine but that thing really revved high in the tow haul mode and was going thru gas like a v12.lol.My new 5.3 doesn't even come close to the revs the 6 had and gets a heck a lot better mpg when towing.If you never tow anything the 6 is fine but even if it is only a couple thousand pounds you are going to want to go with the 5.3.I've had both and man that 5.3 is night and day
  12. Make sure you take it on a test ride on the highway because my buddies have rams and I can't stand the road noise in them.I guess I am used to my chevy.Good luck with whatever you decide to do .
  13. Had my 2014 Silverado rear ended twice and both times a lot more damage than is what on the back of yours and they straightened the frame both times.The first time it pushed the bed of my truck into the back of the cab and there was never a mention of replacing the frame so I would think this body shop might be trying to make some extra money here.I would rather have the frame straightened then everything switched to a new frame.i mean you are talking about messing with almost every system on that truck to switch everything out.
  14. They should center your wheel when doing the alignment.They have a tool that presses against the seat and holds the steering wheel straight while doing the alignment.Sometimes the tech could be a little off when he puts the tool on.Also some roads have more of a crown on them drainage which could also make your wheel off a little but yours looks to be a little accessible.
