Don't get so bent up on the interior. If you ask me the GM interoirs are pretty nice. For a truck. You didn't buy a Cadillac. Sure the Dodge is nice but the truck itself is a piece of junk. They will be falling apart after a few years. All the electronic crap won't work either. Ford's are okay too. But it's a Ford. Sure I'm a Chevy guy but I call them like I see them. If you really want a nice interior get a Bentley with a trailer hitch.😛
I kind of figured you had something with a 502 under the hood. Very nice. What else can you tell about the car? 502 hp? Thanks for sharing. I vote for Interstate batteries too. I have had several over the years and never failed me. It gets cold here in the winter. Like -25F.
I'm getting sick of winter too. We are on pace to break the record snowfall for the month of February here just north of Minneapolis with two more snowfalls predicted in the next 6 days. At least we are above zero this week.
What's to despise? The look? I'm pretty sure they are both HID so they put out out the same amount of light or am I missing something here? Or do you like the led part? If you like the look why didn't you just buy a GMC? I'm trying to figure out what you are trying to accomplish nothing more
dieselfan1 replied to ndogg ct's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI have 2 2018 Silverados. One is a Double cab with 20" Goodyear SRA's . Not that bad of a tire but not that great either. Especially in the snow. If I get 35,000 miles out of them I'll be happy. I never run my tires until they are shot , they always have some tread left on them( 5/32"- 6/32" or more) The other truck is a Crew Cab 6.5' ft bed with 22" Bridgestone Dueler AT RHS . These are pretty good tires all around I think . Better than the Goodyears. Decent in the snow and ride good on the highway. Maybe a tiny bit noisier than the Goodyears but not a lot. I really can't tell the difference between the two trucks as far as the ride. Both trucks are Z85's. Your results may vary. I live in Minnesota and we have had 2 ft of snow in the last two weeks. I had 20" Bridgestone Alenza HL's on my last truck and I didn't think they were that bad either. But the Dueler AT RHS's are better.
Talk about sour grapes. Let us know how that waiting room is at the Ford dealer. Or better yet why don't you just move along now. Just because you had a POS don't mean they are all junk . Get real pal . Aren't you the same guy that was thinking about getting a 2018 SLT Premium plus with a Magnuson supercharger a few days ago? And worried about the MPG? Yeah they're all junk.🤣😃😄
I bet more Ford guys that have problems buy GM trucks than vice versa. According to what I read on here. The only reason Ford sells more is they are cheaper. Dodge is also cheaper. Apples to apples. They both also have more recalls too. In my opinion you get what you pay for.
dieselfan1 replied to ITS_CLN's topic in 2015-2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC Sierra HDYou have heard the saying " More money than brains" Well that don't apply here. I totally understand why you are doing this.. It's going to be a killer setup. I'm going to be watching this one like a hawk. Let's hope they build it and don't say too late in the year for a 6.0.
This is so true. They need to stop treating the American 🇺🇸and Canadian🇨🇦 workers like dirt and quit farming shit out to Mexico. Look at the quality control they have in Mexico.👎 I'm embarrassed to say my crew cab was assembled there. At least my double cab was assembled in Fort Wayne , Indiana USA 🇺🇸 Everyone wants to pay as little as possible for a new truck but a lot of guys wouldn't mind paying more for it knowing it was Made in the USA 🇺🇸 and have fewer problems.
I wouldn't be too worried about the reliability either. Look at the cars Chevy does with superchargers. ZR1 Vettes, ZL1 Camaros. I don't hear about problems with those and I frequent the Vette and Camaro forums.
This will be my last black truck. Really disappointed in the paint they use. It gets hairline scratches if you touch it. I'm probably going to get the ceramic . I've even thought about taking it to a body shop and have them scuff it and reshoot it with some high quality clear coat that's more durable.That would probably cost a couple grand though. I'm not sure what to do.
You need to replace the driveshaft first. They can't handle much past 100mph. As far as raising the speed limiter I'm sure someone can chime in on that, 1slow1500 probably knows how. He's pretty smart about these trucks. Pm him
dieselfan1 replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomYou're right I saw one at a local dealer sticker was $104,979 ouch. So add supercharger add $10,000 I guess.
You might as well go get it then. If it's what you want. All the mods are done. Drive it home. Sounds like a good deal. Don't worry about the MPG's gas is cheap.
I can't believe you are worried about gas mileage. Really? 10 if you're lucky
