  1. I noticed that the auto-stop hasn't been active now that the OAT has been near freezing. Last winter it seemed to be a bit more active...conspiracy theory warning ahead...maybe a super secret satellite download?
  2. 19 RST 2wd 5.3 8 speed, Allentown PA to Millville NJ, 200 mi round trip , 1500 lb open trailer dual axle w 2500lb race car, truck bed fully loaded as well. 50- 70 mph over all mileage was 15.7 mpg all in "trailer mode".
  3. Used the truck to tow this past weekend. Dual axle open steel trailer with 2500# race car. Loaded the car a bit forward and had a wicked vibration at 60-65 mph in towing mode. Reloaded the car about a foot back and the vibration was better but not totally gone. Truck towed and stopped perfectly other than the vibration. Was in Tow Mode all the time. Truck did not look low with the car moved rearward. Any thoughts?
  4. 2019 RST with 18" OEM aluminum wheels and sensors. My truck and the take offs were the same year and model.
  5. Bought a set of take offs last year and mounted Michelin Ice-x winter tires. I've always used winter tires and this set up didn't disappoint.
  6. Past weekend 200 mile round trip towing 3500 lb open car trailer with my 19 RST 2wd 5.3 8 speed. Used the "Trailer Mode" entire time, overall 15.9 mpg. As a comparison the truck gets 22mpg on the same route without the trailer. The Trailer Mode is a great feature.
  7. Haven't asked about it since September, but as of then NO.
  8. Z71NY nailed it. That is exactly what mine does. You can get the darn thing to "wake up" in the morning by turning the light knob to off then back to automatic. The dealer didn't have a clue when I mentioned this to them 6 months ago, but they did suggest I purchase some mudflaps and clearcoat protectant!
  9. Red Hot, Victory Red lots of different names for the best color ever on a pickup....according to this 65 year old anyway!
  10. Go ahead, give it a try and get back to us. The bill for the additional harnesses and modules was almost $800.
  11. The Belltech spindles are ferrous and the original spindles are aluminum. Wonder if there is a difference in the ride due the greater unsprung weight? Also the Belltech part says it needs to use an 18 wheel, I'm fine with that but they say the lowering is achieved by moving the axle higher up in relation to the lower ball joint...here's where I have a question, there is only 1 inch of clearance between the lower ball joint stud and the inner surface of my 18" wheel. How do you get 2" of lowering when there is only 1" of clearance with my wheels? Do you have to cut the excess stud off? Has anyone installed a set of these Belltech spindles?
  12. I had a painted bumper on the last pickup...ran over 200k miles without rusting. Just wash the salt off, you'll be fine!
  13. Someone asked for a photo of the transition from the truck roof to the cap...Here's what it looks like on my ARE Z series. The cap is about 1/4 lower than the truck roof line. No wind noise at all.
  14. There's already limited airflow on the windshield at speeds below 70 mph.The truck's grill is so flat and blunt for what purpose? Styling? Could have taken advantage of all the dead space under hood and over the engine to lower the hoodline for a better aero package. Another example of styling overwhelming engineering!
