rkj__ replied to Sierra Dan's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraThat's definitely a fair point. There's actually a few examples of decontenting in the T1, like the lack of height adjustment on the shoulder belts, and a few other details which I have forgotten.
Historically, the Silverado outsells the Sierra by near a 3:1 ratio, so I would not expect to see more T1 Sierras than Silverados. I would be interested to learn why buyers chose one over the other. While I'm sure exterior styling is a leading factor, I suspect other factors come into play as well.
It's even easier to Google it. http://performancelifts.com/wheel-back-space-information.html 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 - 2wd & 4wd Factory 18x8.0 Wheel Offset = +31 mm - Back Space = 5.72" Inches Lug Pattern = 6 x 139.7
My advice would be to put those extra payments into a separate savings account, that yields interest. When the value of the savings account equals the remaining value of your loan, you can pay off the truck. Doing this, will grow your money, and could save you hundreds of dollars. Sure, a couple hundred bucks is not life changing, but why waste the opportunity to earn some interest, paying down a 0% loan?

rkj__ replied to 04BlackMagic's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareI feel like I should make a joke about it never snowing in St. Catharines, so I'll leave this here: Obviously 2" is an exaggeration, (it's not Atlanta), but the folks up north love to laugh when Canadian cities in the south shut down after 25cm.
That is my opinion as well. I grew up being shuttled around by my dad in his '92 full size Blazer, with a V8 and 33" tires. The new vehicle does not look incredibly distinct from some other competitors, but overall, looks better than the average crossover, and definitely better than the new Equinox, IMO. Initially, I was outraged by the use of the Blazer name, but already, I'm not as upset about it as when the news broke this summer. I'll get over it, though I'll never think the name choice was a good idea.
This long term 0% loan is kind of weird. I don't really want to still be paying for my truck beyond the 5 year mark. Paying it off early seems like it would be nice. But, paying it off early does not seem to make good economic sense, assuming I'd continue ownership beyond the length of the loan. If I had money available for extra payments, I would be better off in the long run putting the money towards my mortgage, or investing it anywhere that yields interest.
I bought my truck on a long term 0% loan. I don't remember the exact cash price incentive, but I think it was less than $2,000 more than the finance incentive. So, of course I realize that the loan is not free, since I gave up some up front cash, but I thought it was a very fair deal.
rkj__ replied to kickass audio's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI bought a Viair 300P compressor. It is very well suited to inflating truck tires quickly. On my last off road trip, my compressor inflated my 32" tires faster than the compressor at the gas station inflated my buddy's 33" tires. The flow rate is very good, so I even use it to blow out the water lines of my travel trailer when I winterize it. Viair compressors are very commonly used to feed air tanks for bagged (lowered) street trucks too.
No, of course it's not the price that will turn the tide, it's the form. All they are saying is that it is priced inline with other off road offerings. If a customer wants a Wrangler, they will buy one. But, if they have the budget for a Rubicon, they would also have the option of the Bison. The buyer can then choose the option that suits their lifestyle better.
I have a short in town commute. I usually put my 6 speed in L5 for it. The AFM does not bother me on the highway much, but I’m not a big fan of it for city driving. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
