  1. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar. You are quickly burning bridges with the folks who can help you. If my truck looked like yours underneath, I wouldn't be any happier about it than you, but you're taking out your frustrations on the wrong people. Have you thought about contacting a lawyer who is versed in these kinds of issues?
  2. What kind of trade value did they give you on your wrecked out rig?
  3. I can see the faults with mine, but I don't hate it. The build quality is actually quite good in my experience. The panel gaps are tight and I haven't experienced any rattles. Yeah, there's some hard plastic, but there's also plenty of soft touch materials. It doesn't have the luxury look of the Ram, it's a good ole' honest pickup truck interior with a few luxury touches. Long live the column shifter.
  4. RST won't have power folding mirrors, memory seats and mirrors, power passenger seat, lock sensors on the rear handles (2019 RSTs do but not 2020), auto-dimming rear view mirror, or power closing tailgate. Those are things that come standard on an LTZ. Then there are options you can get on an LTZ that you can't get on an RST - Like, ventilated seats, power retractable running boards, heads up display, surround vision camera, camera rear view mirror, digital gauge cluster, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, auto emergency braking and a few other things. I originally wanted a Z71 RST when I was buying, I think it's probably the best looking T1 truck, but the lack of features pushed me into the SLT Sierra I ultimately ended up with.
  5. My '16 LTZ never shook either, the '14 I traded for it sure did though. The '19 Sierra is all good so far as well, almost 15,000 miles on it.
  6. It's not, the time to look at new trucks was about two months ago. My local dealership is lowering their discount because they are quickly seeing their inventory dry up with no replenishment coming for at least a few weeks. They had over 250 Silverado 1500s a little over a month ago. They're now down to 175, and this includes their combined inventory at the two other company owned GM stores in the area.
  7. LT models with the 'High Desert' package also have LED taillights.
  8. The main difference is the SLT also has LED turn signals and reverse lamps. On SLE, those particular bulbs will be incandescent. SLE still has LED headlights, DRLs and taillights.
  9. I like the way my truck looks and performs in stock configuration. A tonneau cover, splash guards/mud flaps and a little window tint and I'm good to go.
  10. How are you going to leave the 2019 Ram out of that list? Airbags may not deploy in a crash: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-recalls-defects/ram-1500-recalled-for-software-problem-that-can-disable-airbags/ Loss of power steering: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-recalls-defects/fca-recalls-2019-ram-1500-pickups-over-loss-of-power-steering/ Brake pedal can literally fall off: https://www.consumerreports.org/car-recalls-defects/ram-trucks-recalled-because-brake-pedal-can-detach/
  11. It's supposed to have removable roof panels, so I doubt it's going to look much like any of them.
  12. I usually run either Costco or BP. If I'm low on gas and the closest station is an Exxon or a Shell, it doesn't really matter to me.
  13. If you're drying from the top down, you shouldn't have a problem with that. I prefer The Rag Company 'Dry Me a River'. About $10 less for a pack of two. TRG towels are also made in Korea (the best MF towels come from Korea, not the cheap knock-off Chinese crap like Chemical Guys). Mine are about a year old and have held up well with regular cleaning in the washing machine. I blow mine off around the mirrors and moldings to get that water that likes to hide out before drying with a towel.
  14. The 5.3 has more than enough power and torque for my needs. I didn't even consider the 6.2 when making my purchase.
