I’ve not used it to it’s full capability yet on the AT4, but it definitely takes all effort away from getting into the bed for wash days, etc. Even for something as mediocre as grocery getting (I have a hard bed cover), it brings practical use back to the truck bed. It’s also going to come in handy when ham radio antenna mount time comes. I can’t wait for summer in order to put it to it’s full use - loading the gen set, furniture move from across the US, etc. I’m planning to add a travel trailer this year, so I can only imagine it’s going to make gearing up that much easier.
Agreed. My first stop after picking up the AT4 was the local parts store. I picked up a black after-market shorty and did not look back. No noticeable affect in FM reception, however I do live in a flat metro area. Also, I spend little time listening to terrestrial stations anyway (either SXM or Pandora on cell).
Has anyone else had problems with bumping the right hand roller/selector knob while driving? I’m finding that I keep bumping the roller/selector while driving and changing the driver information options unintentionally. It’s almost as if the detent on the roll switch is not aggressive enough (or the tension of the roller/button is too weak). Just trying to determine if I need to modify my driving behavior or do I have an overly sensitive switch that needs addressed by service. Thank you.
I traded my one year old Canyon on the AT4 and did not look back. I was not in the market (was very happy with the Canyon). I blame GMC for this; I was at the dealership having scheduled maintenance done when I saw the AT4 on their showroom floor. Two months later of searching and I was in the AT4 - found one elsewhere that had all the features I wanted.
New AT4 owner here. Love it! Starters and engines are mechanical parts. They wear with use. In homage to previous old-school mentions in this thread, I will never forget being stranded in sub-zero weather with a failing starter (having to give it a good solid whack to get going). Yes, that is from my $500 first car days. I’ll stick to turning mine off at engine start - interesting enough the list gets longer almost akin to a pre-flight check. I’d rather preserve the expense later of having to get a starter replaced prematurely. After having pulled dash components off my ‘17 canyon to do a two-way install, I shudder at getting into my AT4 dash to jumper that start switch with a home-brew solid state toggle circuit. After reading from those in this tread who dislike the feature, maybe I could find an easier access point and make one available for general use. ;-) Some Cracker Jack programmer will come along and be able to program-out that “feature”. Much in the same way someone reverse engineered my ‘06 Pontiac GTO and allowed you to put custom vanity text on the driver information center. Anyway, happy trucking folks and thanks to the forum management for providing this venue.
