  1. Well oil changes are determined by load and oil temps. I know mine shows 1.5 gallons (25.5% remaining) till completely dry and I filled up 3416 miles ago. Used 150 gallons of fuel in that time. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  2. Within its limits [emoji23]. Not even kidding I drove a custom 4.3 as a loaner and honestly thought it was a 5.3 with 3.42 (my truck had 5.3 and 3.23) until I checked the window sticker. It has a fat torque curve, and unlike the 5.3 doesn't get asthmatic as it approaches redline. even out on the road I didn't really feel a difference until I pushed it over 70. That stock 3.42 makes a huge difference. The G80 engages cleaner, just makes everything better. The biggest thing for me though is instant response. A very predictable transmission. and I still love the fact that if I put it in an L and go all the way down to 1 as I slow down it will kick off perfectly matched downshifts with out me constantly slamming the - button. Wish the 8 speed and 10 speed would do that. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  3. It won't be a current GM accessory. (Although I vaguely remember seeing it at one time, much like the navigation upgrade) Call up your nearest collision center, they should be able to look the parts numbers up. Just tell them you bent your skid plates I need new ones. If they ask for a VIN just grab one from a local dealer site that has the Z71 package. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  4. I have an X31, was pretty disappointed that all they did was change the front plate to aluminum, and add a transfer skid. No fuel tank skid. Includes a badge, and twin tube ranchos. Z71 allegedly get monotube ranchos according to GMs documents (can anyone confirm this??) And unlocks hill decent control. Seams like a waste for $1,350. Considering my other packages included the G80. The 4X4 LTZ non Z71 had the same front skid just in thick plastic. The bolt holes are present on the frame for the xfer case skid. I don't remember where I saw it but the skid plates are a cheap upgrade. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  5. Just order the X31 aluminum one. It's a direct replacement for the plastic one. Then you can get the transfer case one too. That's all the skidplates GM offers. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  6. [emoji23] never heard that before! CCLB to me means 8ft bed. CCSB means the shortest bed. I'll probably just type out standard bed. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  7. No. Even if you could it literally updates per fire session. For example fire six cylinders and then four cylinders and then 8 cylinders. (Skip fire) The DIC wouldn't update fast enough. It isn't like the old system. There is 17 different patterns between 2 and 8 clyinders. (System is capable of operating on one cylinder but they found NVH issues). And it isn't the same cylinder each time. for instance it can round robin the block 2 at a time. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  8. Here is GM's executive chief engineer for full size trucks. "About an oil change interval is what we shoot for" Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  9. Interesting, ya my Duramax doesn't. I have the longer "Standard Bed" on my crewcab. Is that CCSB too, Or is it CCLB?[emoji848] Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  10. For some reason can't edit my previous post. Missed the video. That truck has the composite leaf in the rear. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  11. Unless you have the composite leaf. I believe those use a spacer. 2020 serria X31 Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  12. the best advice I can give somebody that searching for tires is the first thing you have to do before you look at anything else to decide: 1. how long you plan to keep the vehicle? 2. where does most of your driving actually occur? all terrains look cool but if you do 90% of your driving on the street you're going to have a better experience with the More Street orientated all terrain. Such as Michelin LTX A/T2. Loved those tires on our Avalanche 2500. Never had an issue. Worked great on our desert trails. My Ranger got the KO then the KO2 as the tail was incredibly light and the 4.0 made gobs of torque. Never got stuck, even in Tennessee mud. My vote goes for the KO2 because I am very familiar with the tire. If the other options that you're looking at have money back guarantees ( watch out for exchanges that require you to stay inside the same brand) then go for it. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  13. All tires get hard after numerous heat cycles. Ozone damages the rubber too. In PHX it's not uncommon to find micro cracks on sidewalls only 3 years old from the heat and the pollution. Parking in a garage helps, but it still happens. From the moment a tire leaves the mold it starts to degrade. The DT version on the KO2 is better about hardening up because it starts as a harder compound. It loses its 3PMS certification, but comes with a 50k mile warranty. Personally I run winter tires in winter (Now in Alaska). All they have to do is prevent one single accident and they pay for themselves. The deductible, and subsequent years of higher insurance premium simply isn't worth it to me. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  14. Ko1 and ko2 hate wet pavement. Ko1 couldn't get going, KO2 doesn't like stopping. Overall I loved them perfect blend of off road performance and on road use. Good handling, quiet, worked REALLY well in AZ sand. Excellent grip when aired down. Certainly isn't a KM2, but also works in ways KM2 can't. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
