  1. Now that Rough Country offers three versions of their 3.5 inch, specifically the version with the new angled/forged upper control arms with ball joints, has anyone installed these and can report on them? They seem to be the fix for past issues with ball joint angles using the factory upper control arms. What say you?
  2. Has anyone with a truck out of bumper to bumper warranty taken advantage of this falling under the powertrain warranty, which tends to last longer?
  3. Does anyone think this would be covered under the powertrain warranty which I believe is longer than the 3yr/36k mi warranty, which I'm over?
  4. Headlight deicing

    I commented about this last year after I too had my lenses iced up. No one commented with any fixes. )
  5. I'm with you. Bought my '16 Sierra SLT at the end of the lease, this after leasing a Silverado for three years then my Sierra for three. The monthly payments are crazy for the new trucks anywhere, even at Laura GMC, notoriously known for low cost trucks. Keep our fingers crossed.
  6. From the GMC side of the house, I get it too in my '16 Sierra SLT w/ the LED headlamps. Now part of it was my fault, as there is another thread on here about the LED headlights distance sucking, so I adjusted mine up a tad but then had to lower them a smidge. Now I don't get it as often, but when I do, I flash them back and now I win. I did the high beam & fog light both on trick plus I'll illuminate my offload LED lightbar that's in my grill. This especially works well for the idiots who feel that their entitled to drive around with their high beams on when one of their low beams is out.
  7. Been a while since this was started. Has anyone figured out which wires need to be diode'd to make the cargo lights activate with cabin lights, whether switched on inside or my opening the door, like older GM trucks did, or Ford and Toyota trucks do?
  8. Buying my lease

    I'm in a similar predicament. Have a '16 SLT double cab with the 6.2L, 4x4, Nav, Heated and Cooled seats, 8 speed trans and the buyout in January is $32636. The prices for similar new design 2019's are outrageous and there are no giant incentives yet. There's giant incentives for left over 2018's, but they are just what I have already albeit newer, under warranty and monthly lease a tad more than what I'm paying now. Pending no giant offers in January on newly designed '19's, I'm going to buy mine, as it appears to be a good deal. KBB reads for mine, trade in value $27972, private party value $31162. NADA clean trade $32550 and clean retail $34925.
  9. Cargo Lights on with Reverse Lights

    Hmm. Will have to try this. Could Grjfef have wired something wrong?
  10. Looking to do some mods to my '16 Sierra (suspension lift kit, wheels, etc). Located in CT, looking to see what shops members have used with positive success. The only one I know of and have visited is Truck Toyz in Rocky Hill (https://www.facebook.com/trucktoyzunlimited/). Any thoughts?
  11. 19' Silverado Double Cab

    Saleswoman at Banks in NH said they can start placing orders on October 20th. So presumably manufacturing shortly thereafter.
  12. I agree, no deals yet. I too am less than 3 months from my turn in date of my leased '16 Sierra and I've been looking. I agree some of the best deals for discounts are at some of the largest dealerships (Laura in IL and Banks in NH) but it's just dealer discounts, no current manufacturer incentives for sales nor leases. And a salesman from Banks even told me the lease financing rate even increased in November from 5.04% in October to 5.42%, let alone the residual's aren't as good either making lease's crazy expensive, making monthly lease payments nearly as expensive as 100% financing purchases. He went on to tell me that GMC is aiming for a upmarket crowd, hence why only crew cab Denali's were introduced first. Time will tell.
  13. Front end noise

    Had a similar clicking sound from left front wheel when the wheel turns past say a certain clock point you'd get 3 clicks, but only when the steering is turned 3/4 or full left or right, front or back travel. Repair invoice reads "Retorque control arm bolts per PITS5533B", & retorque both the frame crossmember. Sound is now gone.
  14. My daily driver is my '16 Sierra SLT 1500 w/ a 6.2L. My sunny day car is my '05 Corvette Convertible, now with 56xxx miles. For one, at 6'4", the drivers seat doesn't slide back far enough nor does the wheel tilt up high enough on the new C7's to pivot my way in & out without the top of my thighs rubbing on the steering wheel, unlike my C6. Additionally, my car still gets looks and is fun to drive, so why not keep it around?
  15. Thank you all for the comments on this dealership. I've been watching their site for a while to see what happens to prices, and they have been far less than anyone else that I can find. Will be exploring them as the end of my lease is approaching.
