  1. Wasn't huge fan myself originally. Has grow on me though. Color makes a huge difference on the look. I have a LTZ, and I wouldn't but it in certain colors, due to the way the front end looked. I personally think when they unveiled it, they should had done it with a High Country. Would have had less snickering and ridicule for having such tall headlights. I still wish you could order a high country grill with out having to get a high country.
  2. How come you decide to go with sliding 5th wheel hitch? I've been looking at hitches ( have the factory 5th wheel pucks) and haven't seen any puck setup's that are sliders. Thinking about a Curt unit. They look to be smaller for storage out of the truck ( still rated 24/25k lbs though).
  3. Mine seems to run on the cooler side as well - 160's - 180's maybe. But seems to have decent heat still though. I thought they increased cooling fan to 30", assume that has something to do with the coolness. I do know that that when its colder out, I have seen the grill shutters shut. I assume that's to help to warm it up faster. And I have the auto high idle turned on - in the radio setting.
  4. Does the trailer have LED lights? I read in another topic that sometimes there isn't enough load on the lights to sense the trailer. There is an adapter that one can purchase on Amazon. It plugs into the 7 way plus and then you plug your 7 way trailer into it. Puts electrical load on truck to see it there. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00C4AYR3U?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title On the plus side, you can run just the adapter without a trailer and when you turn on signals, if you have the 360 cameras- the truck will switch and display that side of truck's blind spot in the radio.
  5. Is there such think as Non commercial plates, that can be registered over 10000 lbs gvw? Here in MN, you can register truck to 12000 and have plates that state non commercial on them. It does state on the plate in fine print that if used in a commercial capacity that there maybe fines and may require display of DOT numbers.
  6. I wish that you could you could get the LTZ grey woodgrain on the high country.
  7. I think that there should be an option for Z71 off road and protection package. I thought it brought all the Z71 stuff, and the all weather floor mats and spray in liner.
  8. I took a look under the truck quickly tonight. Trying to figure out which holes the mount in. I saw some round rubber plugs about 1/2" in diameter, and i saw some that were about 1" in diameter that had plastic plugs in them. What holes do they go into?
  9. Anyway you would be able to get measurements for the mounting holes on the truck? I'm trying to see if a set from a 1500 will fit. I like the 1500's boards that look like the high country boards, but they are considered "wheel to wheel" and like the additional foot space. I realize that the will still be little short as the 1500's box's are a little shorter. And the board i like has 4 mounts, as pictured in my earlier picture above. The 2500/3500's have 3 or 4 mounts depending on the board design ( high country style have 3, and some of the tube ones have 4 mounts). It's been pretty cold and snowy here and haven't been able to climb under my truck to take measurements. Thanks.
  10. Did your grill come in yet? There is a "trim" filler piece that looks like it would be required as well I think. Part # 84678988, part #6 in diagram. I would it would assume it would need to be painted to match. I really wish they would have offered HC grill as a option by itself.
  11. If you ordered it, when it actually comes in there could be better incentives that you maybe be able to utilize when it lands on the dealer lot. I've never ordered a truck, just have had them dealer trade units. How does financial stuff work when you order it? Do you "pay" upfront? When I looked into ordering, the dealer i was looking at said that if the incentives were better when the truck arrived then could use them. But they still ended up dealer trading for my unit.
  12. did you have to cut the hole? Or was the switch mounted and you had to run the wires?
  13. Do these mount with 3 or 4 brackets? I see that the factory ones use 3 brackets on the crew cab model. I have saw someone on facebook had some of that look like the OEM ones, but were 100" long, and 4 brackets mounting it. Would these be wheel to wheel models? Does anyone with the factory one's have a length measurement? The one I'm looking at is the upper most one. Thanks.
  14. I'm in the same boat. Coming from 2015 NHT 1500. I ending up with a 3500 Duramax- for the same reason. Want to be able to whatever I want (pretty much) without concern. And I feel I got a stellar deal on a LTZ Duramax, although I really wanted the HC front end.
  15. Here are the numbers off of my purchase agreement. $3413 in rebates off of the $65403 cash sale price of rebates for a total price if $61,990 then my trade. And your tax amount would vary depending if you had trade or not. No matter what we pay, as long as we're happy with the deal is the importantant thing. If one were willing to travel to MN, Jeff Belzers in Lakeville has some pretty decent prices. I saw a Duramax High Country with high country deluxe package for sale, $59,999. By the time i was gonna go look at it, it had sold.
  16. Here is window sticker from an unit like i purchased. Hope screen shot works, never posted before. MSRP is $73,970, after the $1500 package discount. And other screen shot is of the dealers page advertising it, and this is today - with out the $2000 GM loyalty. And yesterday there was a $1403 Costco supplier pricing (just being a Costco member got me this discount). So $8577 dealer mark down, $2000 GM loyalty, and $1403 = $11980 total discount. And I have Costco executive membership so i should be getting $700 Costco cash card. I left work early so i could go do paperwork, otherwise it would have cost me an extra $3400 today, and no $700 Costco cash card. I'm excited to get the truck, but the wife is mad about it.
  17. I just did paperwork on a 2020 3500 Duramax SRW, got it 16% off msrp. Thru my credit union i am getting 7 year/100k - $0 deductible warranty,- covers prettt much whole truck for $1900. And getting the $700 Costco card as well.
  18. I don't believe so, the high country grill goes from headlight to headlight. Where the LTZ grill goes from grill to a filler trim piece then headlight.
  19. That is a picture that a friend sent me. He works at a Chevrolet dealer. I haven't been able to find any pictures on the internet at all.
  20. The grill is 84691991 $982.56 The upper fascia (#6) 84678988 is $503.70 These prices are supposed to be wholesale prices that a buddy that works in parts can get them for me for. But a google search does show online dealers that could possibly get from cheaper.
  21. Looks like you have to swap out the fender corners, as well. That piece wraps under the grill assembly. Not sure if they are sold together or not.
  22. So then you have a 2" block on the rear now then? You got any pic's? I've been thinking about doing this, 2" in front, and a 2" block in the rear. I have a 15' CCSB 5.3 NHT
  23. I like these too. Wish they offered them in the 20" size.
  24. I've heard that there is some sort of device that can "capture" transmitter frequency/code, and clone it. Then the thief press's button on their device and can unlock vehicle as if they have OEM remote. Never sets off alarm as car thinks its "real". Happened to a co-worker of mine when she was on vacation. They went to the beach, put all their valuables in the trunk. Locked it with the keyfob. Went to beach, when they came back all their stuff was gone. They reported it to cops. They told her about "capture" device. Then she recalled someone "out of place" on the beach. Was a guy sitting on beach fully clothed, tennis shoes and all on the phone whole time - presumably the lookout. And other guy was clearing out the trunk. Cops recommended to her that when leaving the vehicle, use the interior lock. That way there is no signal to capture and be used while your away.
  25. By chance what phone are you using? I have 2015 with bose and factory nav, and when I link with bluetooth, and use the phone navigation I get no turn by turn from the phone or thru the truck, but once I turn bluetooth off, it works on the phone. The phone I have is an LG G4
