That's why you set a reminder on your phone for a day or 2 before it's set to renew and call to cancel. Tell them that it's not worth the money and they'll make you a couple of BS offers. If you tell them no 3 or 4 times, they'll hit you with 6 months for around $30. With tax, it comes to a little over $5 a month. I'm on my 3rd promo rate.
I have a 2016 Crew Cab short bed. I had a bad flapper valve and they replaced the entire exhaust system about a month ago. I just ordered an aftermarket cat-back and will have it installed this week. I would like to unload the factory one. If anyone is interested, please let know and make an offer. I'm located in the DFW area, but will ship it to you (at your expense). If this is in the wrong section or not allowed, please let me know.
I've been blinding people for a little over a year. I wondered about adjusting the headlights, but kept forgetting. Then this past week it's been foggy as hell, and I turned my brights on to see how far out of whack they were. Turned out that they were way off. I could light up the treetops. I'm going it have to get out this weekend and see what I can do about correcting it.
I have spent a considerable amount of my working day on this site reading about mods that I can't afford or that my wife won't let me do. Last night I spend several hours making a spreadsheet of my Service Parts Identification thing in the glove box and looking up the codes to see what gearing, etc my truck has. It was an excellent way to pass the hours away. Not to mention, I learned a thing or two about my truck in the process.
I got my truck back today and there's no noise. They replaced the entire exhaust, from the cat back, and everything seems to be working great. I guess time will tell if it's a permanent fix or not. Best thing was, it was covered by the warranty, so I saved $660.
I had a 2.25" level kit installed at the Chevy dealership where I bought my truck. I didn't think that it would be enough, but it was. Personally, I would recommend taking it to the dealership and seeing what options they have. Not to mention, if they do it there, your warranty won't be messed with.
I did a little experiment driving from work to home and then from home to work. I tried to see if setting the cruise lower would really get better MPG. It didn't. With the cruise set at 88, I averaged 19 mpg. Same distance with the cruise set at 77 and I'm averaging 16.5 mpg. Shouldn't it be the other way around?
I have a leveled Crew Cab 1500 4x4 with the 5.3 and 25,600 miles and still running the factory 17's (which I will upgrade very soon). I rarely average more than 17-17.5 mpg. Most of my driving, about 85-90%, is highway driving with the cruise set on either 79 mph or 84 mph, depending on which highway I'm on. During the summer, I would average 14-16 mpg with the A/C running constantly. It has just gotten cool enough to not use the A/C here in Texas, so I'm hoping that I'll see a slight increase, but only time will tell.
