  1. Nice. Purchased mine too. Your situation was similar to mine. Feel like we got good deal on similar trucks for $35k as residual value…considering the insane market prices.
  2. I’ve searched and read through all the other posts about the issue. Truck is 2019 TB with 23000 miles My question is…. Has anyone got the engine oil cooler lines replaced before the dang things started leaking or worse yet blew off.???? Are the new lines now an updated part with a better crimp??? Obviously I may need to pay for it or do it myself because they haven’t failed to be claimed under warranty but I’m not waiting for them to blow off and damage my engine. Any thoughts or experiences on this would be very much appreciated! thank you
  3. Nitto tires get two thumbs down in snow from this guy from Michigan. Always wondered why they were hyped up, tried them, horrible in snow and ice. Like others have stated you won’t get a better all season tire then the Michelin defender LTX M/S.
  4. Thanks again fellas for all the opinions. As much as I like the older Silverados 03-07 I think I would regret downgrading to one from the TB as one user commented. I’m leaning towards buying it for $34k and I always will have option of trading in later if I desire. I think for the price I’m getting I’ll be able to get more than that on a private sale or trade in for a few years yet.
  5. What would the next size tire up from the 275/70/18 that would clear stock Trailboss?
  6. Thanks for all different thoughts on this. I guess one thing that n my mind is I’m not sure if the reliability of the new trucks for the price. Anybody have any thoughts on getting 100k trouble feee miles ?
  7. So I own a 2019 TB LT with 22k on odometer. Truck is very clean and has leather and convenience 2. My lease is done in 2 months. My buyout price is $34,200. Dealer will give me 47k for trade in. Should I buy the truck and keep it? Should I trade it in and take money and get new TB for inflated price? Or finally another thought of mine was to trade it in and walk away with cash and find a 2003-05 Silverado in nice shape for 8-15k. reason I mention older trucks is them in my opinion were the best years of Silverado. Just wantin to see what others would do in my shoe. Oh , I do love the current TB I have. Tough call! Let me hear your thoughts Thanks guys and gals
  8. Thankfully my brakes have been fine. And no warning lights. ( knock on wood) No recalls performed ever even tho I’ve gotten notices in the mail. From reading all this crap about no stopping power and no brakes at all, it got me somewhat worried. I tried pressing e-brake button at 35 mph going down my street in the snow. Did this three times. All times the brake clunked and rear tires pretty much locked up and I skidded to a stop. It’s less than ideal to have to do this, but in an emergency it will work. Also a friend of mine tried same thing and his also worked. Sad to hear of this crap with these new trucks. I am a Chevy truck owner and always have been. But I may Take a hard look at Toyota when the time comes in two years to dump my trail boss. Not saying Toyota is perfect, but damn GM this sh*t is getting ridiculous with all these issues. Good luck to all you
  9. It sucks that lots of you are still dealing with this leak and how hard of a time it is for some of you to get it fixed. I guess I got real lucky. Mine leaked, they sealed it on top with clear sealer , didn’t work, a week later a new window was installed and no leaks. if I have any two cents of advise to anyone getting sheet about a new glass , get or go find a better dealer. Or another option...... hammer to glass...new one installed through insurance.
  10. Nice truck!!! How much horsepower did you gain with the hood vents? I heard as much as 30hp.
  11. Great. Since your cars never have problems. That good. Maybe Boeing and Cat and GM should get Acura engineers to build their stuff. My point was that anything that has moving parts and electronics is susceptible to breakdowns and issues. And im Not giving anyone a PASS on anything. I’m just not living in a fantasy land where I expect everything to be perfect. Thanks
  12. I usually don’t respond to these type of posts but I’ll chime in my two cents. My 19 TB has had the leaky rear glass, blue screen of death, and small shutter while cruising, all which was fixed. If you think about it, any new mechanical and electronic machines ( vehicles, atvs, snowmobiles, heavy equipment, etc...) have and will have some issues. I work for CAT and it’s very common for $40k to $1M pieces of equipment to have bugs of some sort. It is what it is really. It’s not the end of the world. Find a dealer that has good techs that can troubleshoot and fix shit. It seems as tho a lot of peeps on here cry and whine about most piddly stuff and act lik it’s GM’s fault they don’t like something. Remember nobody forced you to buy a GM and there is plenty of fords and rams and Toyota’s that are most likely problem free. Again this is just my 2 cents , agree or disagree.
  13. Having owned at three tires I would rate them as follows. And I live in Michigan so the tires are used in heavy snow , ice, mud, and dirt trails. 1- Goodyear duratac. Best in snow, decent on slick pavement great in mud, look good 2- BFG KO2. Pretty good in snow, ok on slick pavement, good in mud, looks good 3- Ridge grappler Not good in snow, not good on slick pavement, borderline in mud. Would never buy Grapplers again. And they look like coopers. Coopers = junk this is just my opinions take it for what it’s worth. You really can’t go wrong with BFG or Duratracs.
  14. One more question. For you guys who have the gator cover. Does it have the tubes in it that roll up with the cover for supports? thanks
