  1. So now we need an extended warranty on the ABS unit to cover premature wear from using it in normal braking? Seems like yet another band aide to me. That Corvette electric pump is looking better and better.
  2. I have a GMC wheel and clock spring if you are interested. It took it off my 15 shortly after I got it and replaced it with a heated wheel. I had the All Terrain so it has red stitching. It's in near perfect shape.
  3. I have to agree, even the smallest, lightest car at 80 would do more than that. This is what mine looked like when hit at about 60.
  4. I believe the rear most angled hole is a shipping tie down point. I don't know what the others are for.
  5. I understand what you went through. I'm glad you are ok. My 15 was rear-ended by a drunk late last year. I was stopped at a stop sign and he hit me hard. It was a 55 mph road and lady behind him said she saw no brake lights. Truck was totalled but my daughter and I walked away. No air bags deployed in my vehicle either. But we were not pushed into another vehicle. My driver's seat was bent backwards so far I couldn't reach the radio anymore. Needless to say mine was totalled and I would assume yours will be as well, even if you have an 18 Denali. Don't take the insurance companies first offer, they can and will do better if you fight with proper comps and book values. Good luck and hopefully your aches and pains subside quickly. These trucks really are amazing at how well they protect the passengers, at least in a hard but from the back, we can both attest to that.
  6. Replace the bearings and seals. They aren't very expensive and you'll kick yourself later if you have an issue and have to rip it all back apart again.
  7. Don't take the doctors word for terminal. FIGHT. Be as aggressive as possible in treatment. I was diagnosed with a very aggressive melinoma 4 years ago. I went through some pretty rough treatments and 2 surgeries. My last 4 PET scans have been clear. It CAN be beat. I am a firm believer in the power of attitude. Take the attitude that it will be terminal and it likely will be. Know that you can beat it, and you will. I never doubted that I could beat it. I can't explain why. I didn't get scared, I got mad. We will pray for you and I want to hear about you pushing the doctors to be as aggressive as they can in fighting it. If the one you have now won't fight with you,get another one.
  8. Sorry, auto correct sucks. TORX head screws.
  9. No, the large panel inside the tailgate, facing into the bed. There are a bunch of goes head screws.
  10. Are you sure it's locked? It may be the actuator rods. Pull the panel an the inside of the tailgate and make sure both the left and the right rods are connected to the center handle mechanism. I had one side pop off on a road trip earlier this year. Simple fix, but aggravating and I had no tools with me, I so I had to stop at a dealer before I could continue my trip.
  11. +1 for renting first. I will be renting one in August. This will be my first experience with a TT and also the first time I will tow anything that big. Right now, I have no place to keep a trailer of my own. Someday we may buy one, but I can rent one 20 - 30 times before I pay for a new one. Plus I get a new one every time I rent. If in the future we start renting several times a year, maybe it will be time to consider buying.
  12. Nannies are for babies, not men. Grow a pair and ditch as many of the nannies as possible!! You won't regret it.
  13. Unfortunately, in my experience, modding adds maintenance expenses. However, a Whipple supercharger would be great fun and make the 5.3 stronger than a 6.2. that style blower tends to give huge torque boost down low as well. It still won't be a D-max, but it might start to feel more like one.
