Hi Saskquatch I am in Sask. as well I run Bridgestone Blizzaks on my 1500 I find the wear down really quickly. I think if I had it to do over I would try the Michelin X-Ice we have them on the wifes crv and they still look like new after 3 years.Granted they are two totally different types of vehicles.

Thanks again Elcamino it is between the h and j codes but I wonder if it could be in the wrong place on the list and if you don't mind me asking how did you figure these out I looked all over the internet and could not find anything on these codes.
Thank you everybody this forum is much more knowledgeable then the dealer I did not know that you need the max trailer pack to get the 3.42 gears since I would be getting the z71 pack and you cannot get the max trailer pack in that trim I guess 3.23 it is.
Hi everyone I am looking at ordering a new truck with the 6.2l and I was wondering what your thoughts where on gear ratios.The way the brochure reads I could get the 3.23 or the 3.42 ratio. I would be rarely pulling a trailer but where I live it seems like you are always bucking a wind of at least a 30 mph. I know with the older trucks I have had with 4 speed transmissions the lower gear ratio not only give better performance but with the windy conditions better fuel mileage so I thought I would see what you might recommend with these new transmissions.
Hi KD5FPV I know exactly where you are coming from I have been fighting with GM for over a year now with this problem and I think they have no idea how to fix it so they just keep denying there is a issue and they hope you will go away or get fed up and trade it off.Last year when it filled up I kept on changing the oil to save the motor now after a year of this I am just driving it and letting it fill up with gas. After the last repair and a fresh oil change within 700 kilometers or about 400 miles it has gone more then a inch over full and finally turned on a check engine light the dealer had no time to look at it last week so I take it in on Monday to see what kind of excuse they will try to come up with this time .
Thank God I am not alone anymore I have been battling with GM for a year now. I have the exact same problem with my 2016. They have been thinking I am some kind of nut because I am the only one with this problem. Mine acts up when it is very cold outside like -15 degrees Celcius, or colder. The oil level will go up ¼ inch in a few days. They have put in 4 fuel pumps, and last time after I had an oil analysis because they keep telling me “no problem found”, lol… they also replaced injectors and this problem still persists. I am very thankful Foghorn17 that you posted this. It proves at least in a few trucks there is something going on. If you get this resolved, please post what was done to repair, and I will do the same if it ever gets fixed.
