  1. Sorry, I disagree with you........ I tow several hundred miles when I tow, ( not just 25 to run to Menards or wherever lol) My driving is a lot of 75+ mph towing too. So I'll keep my weight distribution hitch, along with having the proper weight spread across all of my axels (vehicle and trailer) and not just trying to " balance the trailer" thank you. What you are doing with a cargo trailer( short trips and slow speed) I don't even considered that towing... Anyone can have an "unbalanced trailer" and get away with it for short distances and slow speeds..... I have also seen people that have their loads very poorly tied down too( bouncing around on the trailer), that seem to get lucky by not having it completely fall off.... Some people are just lucky! Over 30 years towing much bigger trailers and heavier loads and faster speeds. Please be safe Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Your right in the part that if not done correctly, you can "lift" the back wheels to there point of minimal contact.But that means you are not set up correctly with your weight distribution hitch! It should be transferring weight to your front axle, while removing weight from the rear. Both your front and rear should "squat the same amount. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Second half of 18.....I bought mine in April or May, (don't recall) and it has the 5 years. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I guess I've been fortunate with my dealership. whenever they have been out of one of their own, then they rent one from Enterprise or Hertz and give me that Instead. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  5. I also thought they are supposed to supply You with the loaner vehicle if it's more than one day..... Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  6. It doesn't always.... I've had to do it also Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  7. So you had roughly what, 2000 lbs? (800+ 1200lb trailer) That's a far cry from 7000lbs I wonder what the mileage and performance would be with something more in that range? 10-12mpg? Much more frequent down shifting? Just curious, as I don't feel you really had much weight..... Also have You pulled the same trailer with similar loads with your previous V8? How did it compare? I only drove the 2.7 as a loaner without a trailer. I was not impressed unless you actually stepped on the gas hard enough to actually downshift..... With my v8 without a trailer, I can step on the gas and increase speed at a much quicker rate without it actually downshifting..... I think that it would probably hold true to that, when actually pulling a trailer too? Meaning less down shifting? If I floored the 2.7 and my V8 they both "felt"very similar at wide open throttle.. It was how much or amount of "tip in" To throttle vs downshifting that I noticed the difference in... Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Right, but he was asking about that ratio with the 10 speed trans..... Not the 6 speed or 8 speed..... I believe his combination that he was asking about is only available if you get the diesel..... Not with gas option with the 10 speed...... Those are 3.42 and 3.23 gears Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. He said with a 3.73 10 speed....I didn't see where your post listed the gear ratio, only the trans....I believe when you get the gas version the 10 speed comes with a 3.42 or 3.23 depending on options of the vehicle, in order to get the 3.73, I think it has to be a diesel like the op asked? Unless I miss understood what he was asking for? If he was asking if a diesel was available in that model trim then your answer was perfect, and I miss understood his question.....

  10. I thought this site was for asking technical questions to try and get help, not for being attacked by someone who thinks they know my driving conditions and thinks they need to give me shit. If you want it on and like it, then leave it on. If it works for you in your daily conditions that is great. But I don't buy a truck to go to hockey practice in, I buy it for work. That is why I buy a 4x4. Have a great day [emoji4] This[emoji3516]is perfectly said..... We just want to be able to turn it off, and keep it off when we want it off!! I don't care if it comes back on every time when you restart the vehicle, just as long as it stays off when I push a button. Same thing with this piece of crap autostop function on the new vehicle's. I know how to turn off my truck if I wanted it turned off at a stupid stop sign or stop and go traffic, I don't need a computer that thinks for me. If you love the nano systems, more power to you..... Keep it on at all times( They work better for my wife, as she is one of those people that they were designed for, people with limited driving skills) Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  11. My trans shudder started around 5-7000 miles. No Chevy shake and I have just over 36,000. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Don't fix it! They are never the same! I love the standard bed look and functionality better than the short bed too! If you find one with the 6.2L you will definitely love it, I know I do mine! (Sorry, I'm still a year or 2 from selling mine) Hope you heal quickly, that was a big hit! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. Heck yeah!! I'd be all over that! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. Just curious, (as I'm one that never used the parking brake in any of my automatic vehicles) what issue should I be concerned with by never using it? Our is it a case of you useing it after not using it for a long time, and hanging up? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. I would say close to 4-5 years ago, now? We no longer have the suburban as of 1 year ago. Traded it in at the same dealership, no issues with the vehicle. (And we do most of our service and sales there.) And the new/ remanufactured t- case had about 30,000 miles on it with the gm auto Trac fluid when we traded it. ( The GM auto Trac fluids was $1-2 per quart cheaper too, go figure!) No other issues with any of the bg products that were put in the vehicle at the same time. I truly believe that it was too thick of an oil, (the auto Trac is more like a transmission oil thickness) and it partially starved itself in the "pick up line pump) and the clutches acted like they started to become sticky. Where the 4 wd would start behaving like it's going in and out really abruptly. It never did that before the change or since with the gm recommend fluid. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
