Hey fellas! I'm currently in a '19 Sierra 1500 and towing a 33' travel trailer. Previous to that I had a '18 Silverado 2500 that had an incredibly annoying vibration. After 14 tires (Duratracs, Terra Grapplers, and BFG's) and a new set of wheels (mostly at my expense) I got sick of it and traded it in for the Sierra. Spoiler alert: I don't think it was the tires. The dealership wouldn't take any responsibility since I had replaced the stock tires on my own. I'm ready to come back to an HD after getting blown all over the highway in windy conditions with a long camper. I'm undecided between a '20 High Country Duramax or a '19 or '20 Ram 2500 Laramie Cummins. My concern is GM's quality after my last vibration issue. Even my current Sierra 1500 has a bunch of minor vibrations and squeaks in the cabin that started around 5000 miles. For those of you that have a '20 GM 2500, how is the overall quality? Especially the ride quality. I've had 2 HD trucks and am not concerned with the rougher ride of the HD but I can't deal with vibrations and other noises that arise from poor build quality. Things like tire/wheel vibrations, door rattling when driving down the highway, squeaky center console when going over bumps of all sizes are all things that I've experienced with my last 2 GM trucks. I'm hoping they've fixed these issues but am looking for real-world experiences. Thanks!
'19 Sierra SLT. The center console squeaks pretty much over every little bump which gets pretty friggin annoying. Seems to come mostly from the rear of the console. I can make it squeak when I grab the rear cup holder area and wiggle it. Anyone else have this issue? I haven't looked at it very closely yet since it's the middle of winter but I'm guessing it's just a matter of taking it apart and either tightening it or lubing it. Any suggestions?
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%.
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.
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.
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.
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.
