I hear ya! My wife pretty much refuses to drive mine too? Probably would rake the whole side of from nose to tail putting it in garage so maybe I am glad she does not want to drive it? Donstar, the 2019's are even bigger! Wider too....but the driving actually is more SUV and feels even smaller than the K2's. You have been driving Trucks far longer than I and this one is like going from the Solid fronts to IFS of a few decades ago....it rides that GOOD! I still love my 95% STEEL K2 even though it rides PORTLY and bloated compared to a 2019....
I already went and checked out the skins on the new 2019's Aluminum skins are great and all but flimsiness is extremely apparent....do me a favor? grab the handle what do you have Silverado? Grab that handle and yank and pull on it up and down and CHECK THAT FLEX in the stamped skin around the handle as you get more aggressive the thought of tearing it out becomes almost certain. Your lucky the Silvy's are way better than the Sierra's. Now go grab that K2 Handle on the steel skins and yank and pull? Your not gonna like the comparison? Remember Ford made a truck "BED" out this material..LOL Ever seen a "Real" construction truck f-150 Al body after a few years? Awful man ugly...Every F-150 on the road has the most beautiful ripple of Aluminum on every skin and look like ABSOLUTE GARBAGE! But Hey what do I know?
mookdoc6 replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomYou guys really think she is an idiot? Get a clue she is pretty dang sharp lady up in the attic! The T1's are specifically designed and engineered for mild assist electrification......
Yup, I never really analyzed the coatings but peeked under a few FERD's and chuckled because that coating is extremely thin and flaked off up and down the rails.....Looked a Tundra parked next to it 2016 and that coating was far superior.........Powder coat would be great but you still need the CED coating first for best possible outcome....My NOXed GM stuff has never failed me so somebody knows why GM is still using it other than the MONEY reason.....
Yup, Lots of candy to distract poor buyer away from the REAL MEAT OF TRUCK! Check out the impressive bolts sticking out on wheel wells of those brand new 2019's rams as they hold the splash guards up in fender wells? Ya...RAM at it's finest!
I understand too. The one time I let the GM service dept do a free oil change I got...No grease, tires rotated back to positions I just changed and specifically told not to "rotate" oh..and they overfilled crankcase 3/4 qt telling me it's not a big deal............
