  1. GM claims low sales, and while that's true, there are reasons for that beyond what the market demands. CAFE - part of the calculations are based on vehicle footprint. The same 5.3L engine is a way worse "hit" in a small RCSB than a larger CCSB. That give GM corporate incentive to sell fewer of them. Markups - I bet it's $1-2000 difference in their cost to build them with the extra doors and seats. But they can sell them for a much higher premium than that. So dealerships are incentivized to sell more of those than the smaller trucks. Rebates - When I bought
  2. Edit: soory, "make" not "take. Lol yes. I've gone through the same thoughts, after a rugby practice I don't really want to climb in all soaked onto my cloth seats. We just use the high school field with no building access, so no shower possible. Most of the time I get by with taking my shirt off as soon as we're done, and delay putting on a fresh shirt until right before I hop in to try to let the sweat air dry. Doesn't work the best in the humid summers but better than full sweat. I've tried doing towels etc but yeah they fall down right quick.
  3. Had to replace mine for the first time this fall, my truck was built in Oct 2013 so ~7years. I got whatever they carried at PartsSource, I think it was ~$230 if I remember correctly. First battery I've had to change so I don't how it compare to others in terms of ease but didn't think it was that bad. Took off the diagonal brace and the bar that goes down from it. I didn't touch the reservoir, I think I did need to roll the battery at some point.
  4. I'll second that the LTX M/S2 (whatever the current iteration is named) are excellent for the winters we have in Southern Ontario, which is essentially everything. Fresh snow/packed snow/slush/ice, they handle all of them very well.
  5. Just a wash and wax today, a couple weeks ago I got a Gator roll up tonneau. It's okay, it was the cheapest one I could find so not gonna complain much lol. Replaced the battery last week. Expensive! But I suppose I got 6 years out of it so not bad. In the sometime near future I need to do rear breaks, and front ball joints and maybe bearings... And then maybe I can move onto figuring out what the engine noise I'm hearing is. Oil change mechanic thinks it's a piston noise ? All of that is taking money away from what I
  6. I've actually scraped before in a stock truck, so be careful. (don't worry, no Chevy was harmed. Boss's F150 on a work trip!)
  7. So I voted on the poll before I read the post.... Looks, naked is best. But, I like the step for getting in, and don't think it necessarily looks bad either.
  8. D'oh! I'm so miffed about them discontinuing the RCSB that I forgot the RCLB was still an option. I was just trying to think of a "recent event" that would cause that beauty to get "demoted".
  9. Yeah everyone else in here is wasting their time arguing which 4-door version is best. RCSB all day! If i need to go anywhere with more than my wife, someone else can drive!
  10. I'll play! My truck as it was until about 6 months ago. Plasti-dipped emblems, grille, and wheels, 2" rear drop.
  11. Looks awesome! Blacked out is probably my favourite look of the 16-19s. I didn't even know factory leather was an option with the 2 doors.
  12. So I just had the software update done for this on Wednesday. They never mentioned anything about a pump. Does this mean my truck will show up as having had it done and I'm SOL if this issue crops up? (never experienced that hard braking)
