  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. It doesn't always.... I've had to do it also Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.....

  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Heck yeah!! I'd be all over that! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Not sure what product bg recommend for the transfer case vs what gm recommends in the current trucks. But in my 2005 suburban ( wife's)gm recommended GM's auto Trac fluid due to the clutches. Had my dealer change all fluids trans, t - case, front and rear diff. It was winter time, and within 300 miles I started noticing 4 wd issues ( only 4 wd, doesn't do it in 2 wd), dealer started throwing one of the electronic parts on to it that was supposedly bad. Next weekend I drive it and it's snowing again, same problem. Call dealership get it in and they think it's another bad module. Replace it too. Still no change when I pick it up.... Still snowing, and now it smells like it's burning axle fluid smell. So I go out when I get home and lay in the snow and pull the plug to see if they put fluid in t- case and front axle... Well, they put axle fluid from bg In my t case also!! I'm pissed, go back to them and WTF? They tell me that's what bg recommend for my t case, and the BG rep said the same thing when I take to them! Wtf gear lube in a modern t -case that had clutches this truck was not from the 70's. Bg put $200 towards my t case that grenaded all the clutches in 978 miles from the time the fluid was changed. This truck was never driven hard, it had the original front and rear brakes still at 100,000 miles. Find out what fluid they recommend first!!! I never would have let them put gearcase oil in my t -case had I known that's what they recommended! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. Donstar might give you some info that you are looking for as I believe he tows with his v6. Most of us, I don't believe, buy that combination if we plan to tow on a regular basis. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. Do you have it turned on? It's not necessarily on from the factory if someone had it turned off already..... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
