Incentives are slowly getting better for mid size trucks, it just took a few years on market for things to slow down. Like every other truck, they jumped $10k when loan terms went to 84 and 96 month options without adding anything to justify that cost increase. But it's hard to hate the Colorado/Ranger/Tacoma size trucks, they do everything well that 95% of trucks owners need done. I'd be driving one now if the dollars made sense, I got a more capable truck for less money but had the pricing been different I could see myself in a midsize. This is the same argument guys who tow their boat twice a year make about why they didn't buy a "wimpy" 1500.
Druder replied to ws6firebirdta00's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI'd be interested to see the gains from this swap, I've found that changing efficiency has had a positive affect on every vehicle I've owned and I've been able to get better mileage with simple mods like this.
Just installed Dee Zee FX running boards on my truck, very happy with how they turned out and equally disappointed that I didn't spend the money before the winter. They went on easy and there's very few things I would have changed. We'll see how clean they keep the side of my truck
I do agree that headlight tech has come a long way since my first vehicle, I guess I'll call it the worst since the 70s. My 80s Mazda was never this bad and it cost $200. The strangest part is that I got flashed once a week with the stock shitty bulbs but never with the new setup and both were adjusted correctly.
My 2014 Sierra SLE has the worst headlights I've ever used in any vehicle ever... with a sticker price of $43k no less. I was seriously considering dropping the coin for 2016+ leds but I balked at dishing out $1600 to fix their shitty design. Ended up with led bulbs that helped tremendously.
I think it's Trifecta that makes a toolbox seal for their tonneau covers, others may as well. My buddy has an 8ft bed with a toolbox and a shortbed cover and it all matches up perfect, you may have to be a little more custom to make things work. Those push buttons should be out of the way with the risers but there's only one way to find out.
Druder replied to bimmerboy318's topic in 2019 Silverado & Sierra ModsLike others I have an original solid fold on my Sierra and it's great. I really like it but I've since seen some lower profile options that look really good. I never noticed how high it was until it was pointed out but I like having a cover I can stand on. To me that's the only con.
Druder replied to Jason23's topic in For Sale/WantedI have chrome I've been looking at painting, this sounds like a much easier alternative. Are there any cons to leaving the truck outside with the trim off? I could possibly do this beginning of next week.
I settled for a double cab because I wanted the standard bed and it was all but impossible to find in a crew cab 1500. My buddy has the 2500 crew cab standard bed and I barely notice a difference in everyday driving. My next truck will be that because while the rear seats aren't a limitation there are some difference that I think I would benefit from.
I've accidentally left my truck in auto the day after a snowstorm and didn't notice a difference in driving characteristics but like everyone else said, there's no benefit to it, only cons unless it's raining or snowing.
One thing I will add is that Falkens have a history of being hard to balance, something you seem to deal with when it comes to cheaper tires. Mine were real bad on the highway until they wore in a little, it's still not awesome but much much better. They're both louder tires but I can't hear them with the radio on, these trucks do a real good job sealing out noise.
