  1. Both exactly the same size. I have the 265/65/18 as stock on my Z71. I don't think you'll have any issues at all with those.
  2. Mine has just started doing it in the last month or so. If I keep my arm on it with downward pressure it (flip down) will keep it from rattling.
  3. Agreed! My 2018, purchased in late December 2018, came with 1 month free of everything and 10 years of connected access. I can't even get the diagnostics to work. It's been 6 months, and I'm supposed to get a report emailed to me every month. The only report I ever got was 2 months ago when I called to complain that I've never gotten a report. They reset the system and I got a report emailed to me, but nothing since. When I log onto MyChevrolet, it just tells me that it's not available and to call them. Same thing it's always said. I guess I should call them again, but we'll see. I pay $11.99 a month for the remote access. It's cool to be able to start and unlock my truck from my Apple Watch. I'm sure that will get old soon and I'll dump that too
  4. My 18 5.3 runs way better on 89. It’s not quite as bad as your wife’s on 87, but I can tell a huge difference when I run mid grade. Idle is WAY smoother and takeoff is much smoother too.
  5. I’ve been looking at these since I bought my truck. Had one in my old Nissan and really missed it in this truck. The dealer wanted $225, I found this one on Craigslist for $100. Took all of 5 minutes to install. The plastic is a lot thicker and rigid than I thought too. Fits like a glove!
  6. Let us know how the reception is. I’d love to get one, but we’re in the suburbs, I’m concerned about receiving HD stations.
  7. Same here, 5.3 6 speed 3.42. I’ve seen 195 in stop/go traffic, but as soon as I get moving it drops back to 180ish.
  8. I have always hated Goodyear tires. I've never had a set that was good. That being said, I kind of like the Fortitude HT tires that came on my 2018. Granted I only have 7,500 miles on them. They have good dry traction, good wet traction and are very quiet. These tires have started to change my mind about Goodyear tires. We'll see how they do as they start to wear. As far as the Trailrunner AT, they seem to have very good reviews on TireRack, ranked 6th in their category. TireRack Trailrunner AT
  9. There is no part number listed in my manual, it just says DEXRON-VI.
  10. My WOT shifts are really rough too! Feels almost like the transmission is going to fall out sometimes.
  11. I have a 5.3L with the 6 speed, all stock. I think it’s the grade braking that causes the hard downshifting when coming to a stop. I’ve played around a bit with mine and this is what I’ve found. First off, the clunk isn’t always there, maybe only 5 - 10% of the time. The 2 - 1 clunk is always worse when the engine is in V8 mode. It’s much less noticeable when slowing down in V4 mode. Yesterday I turned off grade braking for the first time (hold down the tow/haul button for 5 seconds) and it was super smooth when coming to a stop. I could see the transmission shifts on the tach, but I couldn’t feel them. Like others have always said, I think it’s just the way these trucks are programmed to shift. The adaptive learning transmission has helped some. Mine has gotten less rough in the 7,000 miles I’ve had it. It’s night and day difference from when it was new!
  12. Yep, rearward cross is the best. Keeps everyone wearing evenly!
  13. I change my own oil on all our cars/trucks. I just know it's done right if I do it. I found that you can use the mychevrolet website to record it as well. There is even a place where you can upload pics of the receipts. It's pretty handy to keep all the info together.
