  1. Hikari LED bulbs

    Did you get the newer version with Philips leds or the older with cree? The newer Philips chips used in some brands like Hikari are legit bright and reliable. Glad it was an upgrade for you either way.
  2. Fuel consumption at idle

    I’ve always been curious of this too because my mpg sure does drop fast when I remote start
  3. Hope you get it figured out, how did the truck take the hit? I drive home on rural hwy every night and have had a bunch of near misses.
  4. A lady at work swears by dryer sheets. She has an old Honda Accord that sits parked in the grass for months at a time and has been doing it for years without a problem, I dunno. My neighbor has 2 cats that poop in my yard but I leave them alone because they are always killing stuff.
  5. So much this hahahaha. Worse than the commercial at topic for me has been the "Your part of the Chevy family" discount commercial. What an opportune time to run that one lmao.
  6. @ Kevin, I have the same engine / gearing and never got less than 22 average a tank during the summer, now with winter gas and using remote start to warm her up for a few min "because it shifts funny when cold" I'm averaging 19+. My drive is 80% hwy 20% city. 75mph for most of it. By comparison I had a 2016 Tacoma V6 that would only average 18mpg on the same drive, it would downshift on a flat highway because of a headwind and downshift twice for hills.... just to hold speed!!!! I finally got my first look at a 2019 yesterday while getting an oil change, I can only imagine that all the arrow added was an afterthought, like they tested it and thought oh crap we need to do something about this. I mean it really looks like the guys over that threw everything they could think of at it. The small wheel wells, the flowing lines on the sides, lip spoilers on tailgate & roof, vents on the front etc. Add to it DFM, auto stop / start, less weight. It blows me away that they couldn't at least break even on the numbers. It looks like a much softer more stream lined truck overall. Off-topic but when I came back in, the sales lady that pointed me in their direction asked me what I thought, I said I hate it haha. I was on the fence about the design at first but it looks so much worse than pictures IMO.
  7. Congrats! How did you get them to give KBB very good value?
  8. 2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

    ^ I’ve had the same experience between my 15 and 18, both stock 5.3 the 15 averaged 15-16 and my 18 never gets less than 20, same commute.
  9. Also glad yall are good and hope nothing comes of the headaches. I'd also be interest in seeing how the truck took the hit, changing the posting format can dramatically change the file size. Either way, this is also why I drive a truck, I've seen too many cars wrecked where I knew at first sight that no one lived. God bless.
  10. Also curious to this ^^^ and as to how many have had AFM working the whole time.
  11. Having had an elite can on my 15 Z71 and now my 18 LT, it's fascinating how much they catch on these trucks compared to other vehicles. Honda and Subaru for example catch almost nothing over thousands of miles "the DI only variants so 86 excluded." Saw feedback on the Hellcat forums as I was casually looking at other brands running a can and they catch a good bit. Something I still can't find on any of these newer vehicles is people reporting issues from coking that don't run a can or do anything else to prevent it. The high mileage Chevys here report no issues, the Hellcat and Dodge guys that don't use them push over 100k with no issues. WRX and Honda people report no issues. Coking is certainly happening, one guy with a new Civic and no can did a scope at 20k miles and was shocked at what he saw. My biggest question that I can't find an answer to is why the coking isn't causing issues anymore like it did in the past. It's still happening but without problems. I'm sure some amount of power is being lost no doubt, but has that become the only consequence? I trade so often that it really doesn't effect me, I just enjoy modding so I have one, but I'd love to understand what has changed in newer DI only vehicles that they just power through the issue.
  12. Tick

    Mine sounds the same as the video. It goes away after warming up. Currently at 5k miles, noticed it around 1k.
  13. HID headlight shake

    The light from mine bounce like a semi when hitting bumps, projector housing and everything is tight, reported to dealer which was no help. I run with my fogs on 100% of the time now which makes it less noticeable. I'll send my report.
