  1. Back to the original topic, I too just refinanced early without paying a single payment as I've done 3 times previously. In fact, GM Financial just sent me a check for $42 after the refinance was complete. I'm assuming it was the difference in the 10-day payoff check sent and the actual balance owed. Lowered the rate by almost 5%.
  2. It’s the 289QB. So far so good. I can’t comment on the 5.3 towing but the Sunset Trail lineup is pretty light considering the size.
  3. First time towing with the new rig. 600 miles round trip to Niagara Falls, ON for Memorial Day weekend. The 6.2 had plenty of juice and I'm quite pleased overall. Coming from a 2500 Duramax I was concerned. The camper is about 7000 lbs and 33'. We used a Husky Centerline TS weight distribution hitch. We averaged 10.5 mpg on the way there with 93 octane gas. The highest octane I could find in Ontario was 91 so that's what we used on the way home and we averaged about 10.0 mpg. Those were the computer numbers but they were higher than I expected. I didn't hand calculate though I may next time just to make sure they're accurate. All things considered, we're very happy with the downsize.
  4. Classic! Thanks for the laugh. That method has always worked for me as well. Guess I'll stick with it.
  5. How do you like the Grabbers? Smooth and quiet on the highway? Any noticeable loss of power with the heavier tires? Sweet looking ride!
  6. Nice rig! Any lift/level done? What size are the tires?
  7. For those of you leveling your trucks yourselves, what are you using for torque specs when reassembling everything? I'm doing front and rear.
  8. I think it looks great. I too prefer a leveled look but often tow or haul heavy stuff so I don’t mind some rake. I love the white too! Definitely concur with the liners.
  9. Another thing to think about if their 1” rear lift block is really lifting the rear by 2” is your shock travel. You’re going to bottom out your shock and will likely have a rough ride if you don’t replace the shock with a longer travel shock.
  10. I don’t. I ordered their block that says it lifts the rear a true 1” but I don’t know if they’re assuming there is a factory rear block that is removed to make that happen. I saw your pics and I like it so I’ll stick with theirs. I received the kit but haven’t had it installed yet. I tow a lot so I don’t mind the rake as much. I just don’t want too much.
  11. I love these guys! I subscribe to their YouTube channel. Great videos!
  12. I just ordered the FabTech 2" front and the 1" rear block. May want to take a look at those. I went with the top mount spacer.
  13. Nothing yet. I'm leery of upsizing until I know what will fit. I don't want any rubbing.
