  1. So many people seem to base their oil change intervals on no factual scientific information at all, then proclaim to the rest of the world, they should do the same. I always like when people chime in with some test reports.
  2. Absolutely. Winter tires work much better in the winter, whether it is cold and rainy, deep snow, compacted snow, or ice. I like better. Sometimes other drivers make bad decisions, and you are left to make a split second decision, with no space to spare. The little bit of extra traction over an all terrain tire could keep you out of trouble. If running winter tires for a lifetime helps me avoid even a single accident, I'd say it was worth it.
  3. I would ensure the tube is vented and has a low point drain.
  4. I'm not sure if it is the case here, but I do know that on some trucks a jumper wire could be used to allow the low beam headlights to stay on when the high beams are turned on.
  5. This is what you consider "nothing but issues?" While I can understand your are frustrated, I've heard many tales worse than this one.
  6. There are going to be a lot of GM trucks at SEMA. Keep a close eye on the coverage over the next couple days.
  7. In my 2018 you can easily change between units. The analog speed gauge always displays the correct speed as well. It's not like in the past, where you had the "foreign" units in smaller numbers that you had to try and read.
  8. In my stock 2018 Sierra, I do get flashed a lot. The aim seems pretty reasonable when unloaded. Maybe I should, but I don't adjust my headlights every time I haul a load. When hauling, I get flashed even more. The thing is, I drive by a lot of 2016-2018 Sierras, and never feel that their headlights are blinding me. I get flashed driving my wife's stock Mini Countryman with OEM HIDs as well.
  9. My 2018 Sierra 5.3 Double Cab is not included in the recall per the linked VIN lookup. I have not experienced odd behaviour from the braking system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. There are lots of different preferences. Some people will take off the stickers, and do other debadging. Some will add more / bigger stickers. Do what makes you happy. I'm sure there are a few who would pay for the larger sticker. I'd be concerned about copyright issues though if trying to sell.
  11. The truck looks good as it sits. Leveling is fine I guess if you never put more than 200 lb in the bed of your truck, but I like my truck to sit level at max payload, not empty.
  12. Good to know, thanks. I'll still continue to connect direct to the battery when not driving the truck though, for a couple reasons. First, it's more efficient. There is no need to convert DC to AC, then back to DC. Second, I don't like to leave a LiPo battery charging out of sight. While I consider the risk to be very low, it's not hard to find a few tales of batteries bursting into flames when charging.
  13. I've had the service trailer brakes message a few times. It was always a result of dirty connections so far in my experience. A helpful warning. I understand others are likely having more in-depth problems though.
  14. I occasionally use the outlet to charge the battery for my RC crawler while I'm driving. If the truck is parked, I connect the AC/DC charger directly to the battery, since the outlet turns off when the key is out. I'm only charging at 5A, and around 8V.
