  1. Better pics forthcoming... just received today from Everett Buick GMC. HIGHLY recommend!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Safe travels! I make the trip from Fargo, ND to Waco, TX a few times a year to hunt and see family. That drive is absolutely awful until you see the "Welcome to Texas" sign, then the 16-17 hour drive seems completely worth it. "You may all go to Hell, I'll go to Texas"
  3. Need some opinions from the experts on here. I just traded in my 2015 for a 2016, and want to make sure I keep this engine as clean as I possibly can. Unlike the 2015, I will probably drive the 2016 until the wheels fall off, so I want to make sure I take care of it as well as I possibly can. After months of research regarding Direct Injection and catch cans I had a quick question. From what I have learned BG seems to be the go to for the cleaning of the valves and combustion chambers on these EcoTec engines. Luckily my local Chevrolet dealer performs this service. Would there be any benefit whatsoever to get a catch can if I plan to have the dealership perform this service every 7,500 miles. If I am going to do it, I want to do it right, and to maintain BG's lifetime protection plan I will be getting the service done every 7,500 miles. I know... I know... a catch can will prevent (mostly) the "small" amount of buildup between BG services, but will the build up be enough to even worry about? Thanks for the help! "Features: Removes deposits from valves and combustion chambers Dissolves sludge and varnish Cleans stubborn oil deposits Cleans micro passageways in gasoline direct injection engines Restores engine balance and power Improves spark plug life Improves engine compression Benefits: Restored fuel efficiency Reliable engine performance Money saved at the pump BG GDI Performance Service is backed by the Lifetime BG Protection Plan if the initial service is performed within 75,000 miles/120,000 km. To maintain coverage, get a BG GDI Performance Service every 7,500 miles/12,000 km!"

  7. I vote the black ones in the rear. That little touch of chrome in the wheel goes perfect with the chrome that is already on the truck without being overbearing.
  8. My new truck

    Cool! Thanks for the info
  9. My new truck

    I thought for 2016 on upper trims (LTZ, High Country) there was no such thing as a max tow package? Correct me if I am wrong but you can only get the 8 speed with the 3.42 gears (5.3 engine).. If there is a max tow package for the 2016, 5.3, 8 speed configurations does the package just include tow mirrors? Thanks
