  1. EcoTec3 4.3 V6 Towing

    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

    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

  5. Oh the humanity!

    Didn't think about possibly having to replace the skin on the door or the entire door, ouch! That makes the current mirror location that much worse. The strength is at the a pillar, and they should remove the blank filler plate and put the mirror back in that location in my opinion. It also gives people a lot of better choices for mirror changes should they decide they want something different than what it came with.

  6. What about driving one with a 6.2 with a 10 speed also to see what you think?
  7. Oh the humanity!

    The mount is lower yes, but then the mirror comes back to to approximately the same height at the same location of the window! So now you got a dumbass looking arm that's bolted to flimsy sheet metal and when people walk by these tight-ass parking lot spaces and hit it with their shoulders it dents the flimsy for panel. And you got a stupid ass looking blank filler plate where their mirror used to be....... It looks stupid and serves zero purpose, put a pillow under your ass if you need to sit the one inch higher to see!
  8. Oh the humanity!

    What the hell is up with their dumb ass mirrors? Put them back on the corner of the window like they have been for a very long time! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Why not? It will hold the shift points higher, which is a good thing for the hills, so it's not shifting as often. It will also give you grade braking too. I know it's not much of a load, but some people run it with out a load due to the higher shift points...... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Your Experience With Auto 4WD

    Dnt is correct! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. I agree with you 100% that they will move on negotiating more on a vehicle in stock, especially if it's been there for a while! I was just saying that the incentives appear to be the same whether the vehicle is in stock or not, which we both agree on that point also. I was just curious if somebody knew of a special incentive that only applied to vehicles on the lot vs. ordering a vehicle? And of course like you said, if you're not happy or excited with your vehicle why would you want to purchase it anyhow, just because it was cheaper? No thanks!
  12. My vehicles that I have ordered in the past, I have never had to take delivery of it if I didn't want it. Therefore they are "in stock" vehicles..... it would also be no different if I had then do a dealer swap from someone else, my incentives offered to me have always been the same whether it was on that vehicle or a different one out in their lot, or another dealer's lot. ( They were always based on whatever current incentives programs that were currently running.. And which ones you could actually be qualified for) So I'm not sure if my dealer is screwing me or if yours are screwing you when it comes to incentives? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. 6.2 Long term?

    Great to hear how many miles have been put in this motor so far! Just curious, at what mileage are you changing it at? I believe there are different miles if it is considered normal, or severe duty in the book..... Or are you going by the dic when it says it's time to change?, If that's the case, do you have a guess as to how many miles that would typically be? Again just curious, not trying to start a debate between everyone's opinions...... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. Just curious, so why can't you get all the incentives when you order? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. winter driving

    Adding weight can give you more traction if needed( most of the time you won't need it) also increased stopping distances depending on the amount of weight added. I used to add 800+ lbs to my bed of truck when plowing deep snow, it made a huge difference compared to no weight while plowing, obviously it was for a counter balance to the plow. But the point being, is there's no weightt over the bed of a truck compared to the front axle even without a plow. But for normal driving where they actually plow the roads you shouldn't need any weight. Going on the back forested roads to get to a cabin, maybe you will want some......
