Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) IF NO: Why not? (No time/money, inexperience, no vehicle) Yes...All of those factors matter but, priority usually goes to functionality and quality. Does it do what I want it to do and will it do it reliably. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) No...I'd rather spend a couple more dollars and get a better quality product. There is a limit however, I will not pat 3-4x as much for a product that doesn't offer discernible better quality/functionality for the money. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? No, looks are important but, the accessory needs to function.
My 2011 did this when my battery went dead along with some other weird stuff that I thought was caused by a battery drain issue. Replaced the battery and all was well. I'm not sure that your issue is the same but, I would bet it's something electrical and not mechanical like running out of freon.
RubiconJoey replied to 1500fp's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Yes..They did on my Yukon and my Sierra. My aunt and one the guys I used to work also had leaky lines on their tahoes. I'd be looking at aftermarket lines if mine weren't just replaced under warranty. It should be noted that none of them leaked bad enough to cause any issues other than making the lines dirty.
RubiconJoey replied to fishlessam's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI've never installed one but, I had it on my previous Yukon and loved it in the winter. Worked great except for when the spray nozzles would freeze (would have to break the ice off them). Then there was the time I had a CD case sitting in the area in front of the button. It would hit the button causing the wipers to turn on seemingly at random. Took me longer than I care to admit to figure out it was the CD case and not an electrical gremlin. I think this was the company that originally supplied them to GM. http://www.alphathermusa.com/Products.html If I recall correctly, the factory units were recalled due to causing fires. The fix was to remove the unit but, on mine they just pulled the fuse.
RubiconJoey replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI like it with the exception of a few things...The fender going into the headlight. The mirrors being lower on the door instead of the front triangle area of the window. The rear windows don't look like they will go all the way down with that raised portion in the rear of them. I'm really curious to see how this looks without the aggressive tires and 2" lift in other trim levels.
RubiconJoey replied to WayneRight32's topic in Off-TopicThere are more expensive vehicles if that's the end goal. That said; if I had to keep it, a Koenigsegg would be my pick. Would be tough to choose between an Agera, Regera and a One:1 though.
If all you know about an award is who won it, does it really mean anything? Personally none of them mean squat to me. The only exception are the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) ratings, those I have seen videos of their tests and know they put a lot of effort in to their ratings.
Last time I quoted a Vette it was over $1400 for 6 months which is nearly 3 times as much as it cost me for my truck. That was for full coverage with a clean record and being 29yo.
I've heard $135k being thrown around. It's definitely in the realm of cars with this sort of performance but, sadly way out of my budget.
Checkout this thread... Self Diving Vehicle Thread I personally like them and am looking forward to them being the norm. Sure I'll still want to drive on a track/offroad for play but, day to day I'd much rather let a car drive itself. Computers can and will be safer than humans and have actually proven to prevent accidents humans wouldn't even have a chance at preventing. With enough redundancies and safety protocols "glitches" aren't a problem. I explain a little more in the thread but, that's the gist of my opinion about them.
It's grossly overpriced and has a lot of useless features IMO. The only useful features are the app (remote start, lock/un-lock, etc), crash response and slowing down (onstar website doesn't say it will SHUT down, only slow) in the event of theft. I'd gladly pay a one time fee for the app but, I won't be paying for on-star once my trial is over.
What he said...and sexy!
RubiconJoey replied to diyer2's topic in Off-TopicNot exactly a "boat" owner but, I have a kayak and I use public boat ramps often. I haven't seen anything particularly idiotic at a ramp but, I did see one of those huge Kodiak trucks pulling a jet ski trailer once. Since I'm in a kayak I can't launch with all my gear (fishing) in the kayak as it's too heavy and cumbersome. If no one is around I'll take my time but, when it's busy I'll drop everything to the side of the ramp/on the bank so I'm not in the way. I usually spend more time on the ramp answering questions about my kayak than it takes to actually launch. I've also helped my parents launch their 26' pontoon several times. When they first bought it they had trouble loading it (launching is a breeze, as long as there's not a large wake or wind). Having to be near perfectly centered and parallel with a 26 plus foot trailer that's mostly submerged in dirty water isn't an easy task, especially if there's any side wide (that thing is basically a sail). Eventually they installed some uprights that made it easy to tell if you were straight and it made things 100x easier. Now they have it down to an art and can (and have) launch and load it quicker than some bass boats.
I kinda expected this to be one of those meet-up threads kinda like a "cars and coffe" thing. My grill is currently down to one burner that isn't rusted out but, I've got a little webber smokey joe to get me by until I decide what I want to replace it with.
