  1. It is standard fare to critisize the hell out of the stock LT tires on these trucks. On my ‘15 I ran the stock Good Years until they had to be replaced. Replaced them with the Michelin Defender ll’s and hated pulling my trailer or hitting grooved pavement, got real squirrely and were mushy while pulling the trailer. On my ‘18 I have the stock Good Year Wrangler SR-A’s and have zero issues with them. Snow, ice, trailering, etc. The wife and me just got back from a ski trip last Monday that ended up closing the road back home, we made it about a half hour before they closed it. The road was rife with 4 foot drifts, wind howling, broken snow floor, ice, and the like. Zero issues. That being said I do understand those that are loyal to a particular brand or want that custom look on their rigs. To each his own but for the love of Pete stop spreading lies about a great tire just to further your cause.
  2. I think there are some practical applications to having your engine run for hours at a time, some have been mentioned in previous posts, but I believe in "Right tool for the job". I'm not going to use a spoon instead of a ladle or a butter knife instead of a flathead screwdriver.
  3. "Really sucks for me as I'll leave the truck idling for several hours at a time if headlights are needed to provide jobsite lighting." http://bfy.tw/LwLr I kid with the link but put that aside and I wonder what kind of damage you're doing by letting it idle for so long. A quick google on that and there are plenty of reasons not to let it idle so long.
  4. I was up skiing with the family and got this after running the radio for about 5 minutes. It would be nice to know at what percentage point do we get this message.
  5. engine stop start

    You're absolutely right I meant 2018, he traded his 13 for it. Not sure where I got 15
  6. The "Speed control" got me. It's like hearing indicator light rather than turn signal. Any hoots I would definitely be taking the truck into the dealer for a checkup.
  7. I needed something to jack up the truck and my travel trailer when needed so I went with this. https://www.amazon.com/Torin-Steel-Scissor-Capacity-T10152-x/dp/B004PX8BC2/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1546870054&sr=1-1&keywords=Torin+Big+Red+Steel+Scissor+Jack%2C+1.5+Ton+(3%2C000+lb)+Capacity You can't beat the price and I tested it on my truck and trailer. Works great!
  8. First Chevy

    Very nice looking truck. It seems you're in the same boat as a lot of us in not liking the 19's and getting a great deal on the 18's.
  9. I always hear about how the Driver Information Center (DIC - yes I had to look that up) is 10-15% off hand calculated. I have not found that on my 2015 Silverado 5.3 - Totalled, 2015 Sierra 6.2 - Traded, or my 2018 Sierra 6.2. I'm finding less that a 5% margin of error. I can't be the only one seeing this am I?
  10. A lot of us folks on here got our "Leftovers". Loving the savings and the tech.
  11. New Silverado Commercial

    Good gawd almighty I hope those commercials go the way of "Dude, you're getting a Dell!"
  12. BFG k02 tires

    I had the defenders on my 15 and left them on with plenty of tread when I traded for the 18. My issue with them was towing and grooved highways. They’d get pretty squirrelly and did not inspire confidence. One mans opinion of course, you’re mileage may vary.
  13. Not true in my case. The only thing I'm missing on the list is lane departure / collision alert. Every other item you listed I have to include the heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, console, leather, rear sliding window, LED Headlamps, Z71, 6.2 etc. It's a freaking unicorn my friend.
  14. As you can see there are many opinions on the factory NAV. I use mine when I’m going on longer trips even if I know the destination. I like the ability to zoom out and keep it zoomed out as I travel. It’s kinda cool to see some features like lakes, towns, etc. that would normally be outside the view of Google or Apple maps. Now I still use the other two but having on board NAV without the need for LTE is just another feature .
  15. It’s all marketing my friend. My 2015 had collision alert / lane departure warning and was touted as having the “Premium Package”. My 2018 does not have the collision alert / lane departure warning and is also touted as the “Premium Package”. The new Premium Plus package does have this feature. It’s the only feature my truck is missing and I really don’t miss it. Now about your trades... I like the idea of a push button start, radar cruise, and blind spot detection. Can we get that through an intellilink update? I kid!
