    2019 RST 5.3
  1. I recently camped out of my truck bed and it was nice being off the ground in a Napier. I was worried about stashing the remote in the truck bed tent. However it was just far away enough that the door buttons would not engage and my rig remained locked. This was nice as I didn’t need to take my remote with me on leisure activities!
  2. 2019 T1 8 speed Shifting

    I’m just over 3K miles and my T1 is definitely driving great. The gear shifting 1-2 feels like it has gotten smoother and I have not had the clunks experienced when I 1st got the Rig. So far I really like the way it handles and the power is insane. Happy 4th!
  3. Do the numbers include all car types in the mix? Maybe I am biased but I would still buy a T1 over D or F if I had to do it over again! The first new GM models to launch were the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra crew cabs in late summer 2018. Sales of each were up more than 12 percent in the second quarter versus a year ago. Customer demand for Chevrolet’s new Trail Boss models – the first full-size pickups equipped with a 2-inch factory-installed lifted suspension – have far exceeded expectations, so GM will double production. In addition, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado1500 will offer Trail Boss models with a 420 horsepower, 6.2L V8 L87 engine. http://gmauthority.com/blog/2019/07/gm-sales-figures-numbers-results-united-states-second-quarter-q2/
  4. This kills me. I am going to say the same thing when I bring mine in. The 'climate control off' happens at least once a day to my truck.
  5. New RST

    I have the max trailering shocks on my RST w/20s. It drives sporty for a truck and I love it!
  6. Yes, my Hvac appears* to work, however the climate control off banner show up when any adjustments to the AC knobs or buttons used. Are you saying there is a software fix for this? I checked my settings and have no pending software updates......
  7. My Climate control acted up every day this week saying it is off when I start the engine in the morning (11/18 DOM). Its ridiculous there is no fix at this time. The question is ....will it be fixed through a simple software update or do parts need to be replaced? I hope GM finds the root cause soon for us guinea pigs!

  9. Real world city MPG?

    Well I have finally adjusted from driving a sports car to my T1 and my driving style of course has been modified. Now I am getting respectable mileage.
  10. That is straight truck porn. That T1 looks GOOD! Congrats
  11. Barry Engle, who became GM's president of the Americas on April 1, played down declining Silverado sales as a "temporary phenomenon" that will be corrected with more capacity and a normalization of production. "Given our limited availability, we deliberately launched with a really high mix in trims," Engle told Automotive News this month. "But as we get broader availability and get the full portfolio out there, we'll be just fine." Broader availability includes increasing annual capacity of the pickups by 60,000 — 40,000 for the heavy-duty models and 20,000 for the 1500s. The increased capacity will aid plans to roughly double production of the Silverado Trail Boss, an off-road-inspired trim, to more than 20 percent of the mix, Engle said. The increase is a result of the brand's national dealership council saying retailers needed more inventory of the models."We're selling every one of those we can make, and the real demand for that thing is probably double what we thought it would be and what we capacitized at," he said. "The dealers are just screaming for more." https://www.autonews.com/engle I have a feeling by the end of the year, Chevy's #s will be way up. Time will tell. No Doubt the the Trail Boss trucks are beautiful; it will likely be my next truck if I opt for a 4X4. I am seeing more and more T1s on the road, but definitely still lacking around here in So Cal. This may be one of the slowest new model launches I have seen (or at least payed attention to).
  12. Now the Gremlin bugs have attacked my rig.....I received the 'Climate Control Off message bar' twice yesterday and once today. Hopefully a fix will be available soon
  13. Real world city MPG?

    lots of lights and traffic on my daily commute and I have a heavy foot..... averaging 13/14 MPG with a 4X2 RST. Auto stop is ALWAYS OFF!
  14. Funny after I typed this I came across a parked stock T1 TB with 18” and all terrain tires The wheels did not fill the wheel wells and looked a little small for the truck. My RST next to it with 20” did not look much smaller at all. Am I missing something? I thought the difference would be more dramatic.
  15. I have a 4X2 5.3 RST but I think after 3 years when I trade it in for another truck I will consider the Trail Boss. My dealership friend Says the TBs are a rougher ride than the RSTs but that doesn’t make sense considering the TB should have better suspension in theory. I will test drive both for sure. I want the 2” lift and maybe even the 6.2 10S if available. I don’t have a need to ever go off road but I can’t justify a lifted 4X2’s impractical nature. Maybe my camping trips will change and I could get more adventurous in the future. I’m curious what others plan on doing in a few years as far as trading in for another Chevy?
