  1. Not that it stays in first longer, but the first to second change is often much, much more noticeable than any other change. In some cases, it is harsh. Now, I've only got 700 miles on mine as I recently bought it new so maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe something to do with the trans fluid not being warmed up. Not sure, I'm going to pay more attention and have the dealer share their thoughts on it.
  2. I have not heard of those. I'd recommend the Falken Wildpeak AT3W, it is a superb tire. I had a set on my 2014 Z71 for 4 years and 66k miles when I traded it in. One of the few AT tires with a tread wear warranty. Wet/rain traction is great, hyrdoplane resistance is excellent, and off-road, I've never been stuck with them. When the stock tires on my 2020 wear out, I will be getting a set of the Falken Wildpeak AT3W.
  3. I have the 3.0L Duramax and the ten speed. Same thing happens to me 99% of the time. All other gear changes are of the smoothest and fastest engagement though. Not sure why the 1st -> 2nd change (accelerating) is like that.
  4. You will be fine with the SL, just check that the tire's load rating meets your needs. E would be necessary on 2500s and 3500s. I recommend you check out the Falken Wildpeak AT3W. These are great tires.
  5. They are good tires, much better than the Goodyear SRA. I think the Falken Wildpeak AT3W is the best AT tire in my experience. Nothing bad to say on the Duratracs though.
  6. Amsoil Heavy Duty Metal Protector
  7. Check out "The Last Coat", aka TLC2. They have the best ceramic coating out there. The other one I haven't tried yet is called Ethos Graphene Coating. Theirs is supposedly better than any ceramic, given the properties of graphene vs SiO2. I'd recommend TLC2 but Ethos may be a worth a try!
  8. Just get it vinly wrapped or take it to a paint shop. In either case they can color match. Otherwise, check local junk yards.
  9. Nope, just plug it in and your VIN will show up on the screen of the tuner. I can ship the tuning guide with it as well to help get you started. Helps to guide you how to set certain items for your desired outcome.
  10. Oops, I didn't know that. To OP(Nightfly): In that case, opt for the Adaptive Ride Control!
  11. Wait for the 2021s, they will have the new adaptive suspension option available. I prefer the Z71 or AT4. I prefer the way the off-road tuned suspension handles and rides, as opposed to the standard option. My 2020 LTZ Z71 3.0L rides much better than my 2014 Z71 did. The new T1 platform and other updates contribute to that I'm sure. https://gmauthority.com/blog/category/technologies/adaptive-ride-control/
  12. Yep, still for sale. And yes, you can adjust just about everything with this one. http://www.hypertech-inc.com/MaxEnergy2.aspx
  13. The leafs are supposed to be above the axle. Front end may have some kind of drop on it too.
  14. As long as you take care of the seals and weather strips, you won't encounter any issues. If your truck is in the sun all the time like mine is, its even more important to do so.
  15. Peragon is a great choice. Will last as long as the truck does. https://www.peragon.com/?gclid=CjwKCAjwqML6BRAHEiwAdquMnedr5fYqmdIM4NEj_cV9U3RLjrTFBg_opP4_Pgo7Ex3wbFfHNPhZgRoC4q0QAvD_BwE
