  1. I want to see what’s on offer for the 2020 HD trucks . I initially hated the 2019 light duty re-design but they are slowly growing on me, especially the Sierras. On the GMC trucks it looks like they didn’t go as extreme on the front end as they did on the Silverado. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. That’s a 40 foot sail hooked up to a 4,400 lb truck and I’m sure that trailer is well north of 7,000 lbs. Don’t be that shattered TT on the side of the interstate.
  3. I’m sure that drifting around the highway on-ramp is fun, but it gets old after a while. We always seem to get ice with our snow in Atlanta. I’ll take the Gov bomb, it’s been extremely reliable thus far in crappy conditions.
  4. I’ve noticed a clunk too when I go from coasting to light acceleration. I’m under the impression that the G80 causes that noise. My last truck was an Avalanche Z71, which also had a G80 and it did the same thing when going from coasting to light acceleration. It’s disconcerting, but I’m not sure if it’s actually damaging anything. I’d be interested to hear what comes about from your dealership though.
  5. Weird reading on average MPG

    Could be a bunch of different things: -Winter gas -Different gas station than normal? -Change your tires? -Remove your tonneau? -A friend put a half a pallet of cinder block in your truck without your knowledge? It’s big enough of a drop where I’d be concerned too. So has anything changed recently?
  6. Weird reading on average MPG

    It’s funny you say that based based on a single variance. I track my fuel mileage with an excel spreadsheet and I always input the DIC indicated MPG as well as having a column for “hand” calculated MPG. I also have a column which shows the variance (in percent) between hand calculated & DIC calculated MPG. I just averaged out the variance column and it was only off by an average of 1.46%. That’s the last year and a half worth of fill-ups. I’d say the MPG on the truck’s DIC is pretty darn accurate.
  7. You can access that in your head unit. It’ll let you shut off approach lighting and stuff.
  8. Definitely agree, any easily replaced parts should be replaced instead of repaired. I’m just not used to seeing pictures of cars that looks like a beer car after I’ve shot it.
  9. The telltale signs of aluminum. Probably gonna need a new grille and headlights looking at the damage. Expensive oops.
  10. Traded for a 2018

    That’s definitely good news. I wish GM hadn’t quit putting the RPO codes in the glove box. Now I’ll have to try and remember to get a build sheet from the dealership when I buy my next one.
  11. Wow! This train didn’t just go off the tracks... it’s gone off the side of a mountain.
  12. Traded for a 2018

    Congrats... Before someone else asks, pics?
  13. 6.0 hesitation

    I think others were having the same problem in an older thread and the consensus was that the torque converter would like to stay locked too long, causing the pulsating. People who had their trucks tuned said the problem went away. Keep us posted, hopefully GM has updated the software to eliminate this.
  14. 6.0 hesitation

    I get a pulsating/surging feeling going uphill at 1/4 to 1/3 throttle. I attribute this to the transmission. Step on the gas, let it shift down and no more surging, just a smooth pull. The 6L90 does funnny things sometimes.
  15. Well, I’ve seen some folks around here with a pallet of cinder blocks in the back of a GMT-800, riding on the bump stops with the tires half flat. Probably more than 1500 pounds overweight and they looked like they were tied to a stump pulling away from a red light. To each their own.
