  3. Don't worry about the lube guy. Do it for yourself. Pull the truck in the garage, open the hood, grab a beer and just stare at the engine cover
  4. Nice! Your truck is impressive!
  5. New 2018 vs 2019 dilemma

    The 2019's are very nice. The only downfall I see is that you aren't going to get a good deal on one right now. If you could wait another 6 months to a year, you would be able to get a lot better pricing. If not I would go with the 18 LTZ/SLT, and get a much better deal. Best of luck with whichever route you go.
  6. Paint?

    Paint is probably not going to get better. Get it xpel or 3m right away, then you won't have to worry about it
  7. 1 month ONSTAR trial! :)

    That's kind of a rip off. I use the remote start on the app all the time in the winter.

    Hey Phil. Can you move to Illinois? There is a house down the road from me for sale I am going to get a set off those door handles. How hard are they to wire? I have watched you video on the illuminated handles, but how do you get the turn signals to work? I have DL3 mirrors with your harness.
  9. 2014 Chevy Silverado 5.3L exhaust drone

    Get a gm borla exhaust or turn the afm off. You can get a tuner or a range afm device that plugs into the odb2 port. I have the range device, have had it for months and never have had a problem with it. Here's a link the range website.... https://rangetechnology.com/afm-disabler/
  10. 5.3L fuel usage?

    I run e85 most of the time. I have been averaging 14.6 mpg hand calculated. In the colder months I run 89, averaging 18.9 hand calculated. Around 70% city, 30% interstate driving.
  11. 5.3L fuel usage?

    If you truck is capless fuel, there will be a sticker like this on the inside of your fuel door Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. I would remove the running board and install AMP steps. I am going to do that eventually. Anyone have any experience with the AMP steps in the snow and ice? I live in IL and don't want to burn up motors.
  13. Old Habits Die Hard!

    I actually test drove a 2019 yesterday. It was an LTZ with a 5.3L, nice truck. Not in love with the front end or the badging. However the ride was better than my 2017. Seemed to be less bouncy in the rear and handled corners a little better. Also liked all the bells and whistles, but it is an LTZ and mine is an LT so not comparing equal trim levels. I only got to drive it for 20 minutes, but overall I was impressed. However I wouldn't pay full retail for any vehicle, and everyone around here that has 2019's want close to full retail. As far as the 2019 ram goes, my buddy has a 2019 rebel. It is a very nice truck. However he has already had it in the shop twice. He had problems with the Uconnect and also the AC is terrible. He has owned the truck for about a month and it has been in the shop for a week of that. He has not been thrilled with it. Also to add insult to injury my 5.3L beat that hemi in a race lol! Of course I am running E85 and have cold air intake and exhaust. I didn't tell him I was running E85, he is still trying to figure out how he lost. I do like the looks of his truck though, and it does ride very nice. Still wouldn't jump ship to a dodge though. Ford maybe, but my dad would probably disown me
  14. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I ended up filing a lawsuit against the other driver in small claims court, because his insurance company only wanted to give me $1,800. 3 days after the sheriff served the guy, his insurance company was calling wanting to settle. They have me, my appraisal fee, and full diminished value claim. They also paid me what it cost me to file the lawsuit. The only thing I didn't get was the $60 fee I paid to the sheriff to serve the guy. It was amazing how willing they were to pay, when they knew I wasn't messing around. Good luck with your claim.
  15. What have you done to your K2 today?

    No idea. I know he survived but not sure if he had any lasting injuries. He had blood coming out of his ears, mouth and nose at the scene. I am guessing he was going at least 40mph when he hit me, I was not moving.. He flew off the bike and landed on my hood, then fell to the ground. He wasn't wearing a helmet. He was making a right turn and came into the left turn lane where I was sitting. Apparently he thought he could take a corner like he was on a race bike.
