So the reason I bought a truck. I see so many people driving around in big trucks, and they just don't use them. I don't get it. Why not buy a 1500 or an SUV? I bought the truck to use it to truck! We had a 26' Wildwood camper we towed with an Armada. It was within the specs on weight/payload, but it was white nuckle at times. We upgraded to an F-250 and it was night and day. While overseas, we were looking online at large 5th Wheels. Something in the 43' range and 16K GVWR. We wanted a midbunk with rear living for the panaramic window. When we got back a few weeks ago and walked t
Hello everyone. I wanted to officially introduce myself to the GMC world. I came on asking some questions in my hunt for a new truck in another thread. Due to truck shortages, I didn't get exactly what I was looking for, but am happy none the less. I am long winded, so if you want to read the novel, I will put it all here. Cliff notes: Had a 2107 F-250, moved overseas, sold it, moved back to the US last month, wanted a 3500 Denali in anything but black or red, planned to get a large 5th Wheel Camper, bought a 2500 AT4 in Black, bought a travel trailer, drank beer.

The crazy thing is, some things GMC is behind but others it is a head. I came from a 2018 F-250. I would have considered going back but the GMC has the built in TPms for trailers, headsup display, rearview mirror camera and other features that Ford does not. Now layout, I would take the Fords layout over it. Instrumental cluster for sure. On the Ford I could customize everything that was digital. Like the oil temp, battery etc gauges across the top. On the GMC, they cant be changed.
For sure it is there. Something as simple as fold in mirrors when you lock it would be nice. They have the ability to remember seat positioning, how about A/C, ventilated seat, etc? I would also like to be able to change the order of the info that displays on the speedo cluster display when under the info screen. Just simple stuff that finetunes the user experience but has no impact of the mechanics/durability of the vehicle.
I see how constantly having a feed could be a distraction, lower speed use (parking lots, off roading, campground speeds) would be a nice compromise. I am big into the import tuner world and have always had modified cars (BMWs, Subaru, Toyota). I don't think I would ever look to tune the truck. They come with so much power that I don't think the risk vs reward is there on a new one.
Well that sucks. It makes no sense that the cameras can't be one while driving. I was off roading my truck and tried the cameras down the side of the truck so I could see clearance in the deep ruts. It was awesome, but sucked I had to hit it every 7 seconds. And I really wish the air con seats would come on with the remote start. Am I missing something where this all can be done in the settings?
xETERNALx replied to Mardo's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)My 2021 2500 AT4 Diesel, Crew Cab, Shortbed, with all options has a sticker of 3,084 payload.
My last truck was a Ford and there was a program called ForScan. You could use it to program stuff on the truck. You could unlock options, change options such as making it so Camera Views wouldn't time out, Mirrors would Auto Fold in, Running Board would stay down, A/C would go to a preset when remote starting, and other things. Is there anything like this for GMC? I would love to make it so some specific Cameras from the tech package would always display.
Sorry for the crazy bad luck. I had similar issues finding a truck recently. I was living overseas and found our short notice I was moving back stateside. I started looking for a 3500 Denali online mid April. I couldn't find ANYTHING. My only wants was a Denali in anything but Black. I was willing to look nationwide. I emailed a good 15 dealers. Most came back with having nothing. The few that did, wanted $10K over MSRP. Then the ones that didn't have anything offered me Duallies, 2500s, 1500s, black trucks, used trucks, you name it!! I finally got to Vegas and after renting a car the da
