  1. I like the z71 badges, plastidip maybe, but I'd leave them on. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. I have one made in the US and have had tons of problems with it. I dont think one factory over the other is really superior. That is just my opinion based entirely on my experience so take it with a grain of salt. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. I do usually one tank of 90 per week. No issues with it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. That's not really a good comparison. People choosing to be unhealthy is their choice, people dont choose to have a brand new vehicle that doesnt function properly. As it is, the lemon laws are too restrictive. Just because a vehicle has a multitude of different problems doesnt mean they are less valid than a single recurring problem. If the laws favored the consumer more it would benefit the consumers as a whole because then the manufacturers would have to improve the quality of their vehicles to avoid losing so much money on defective ones. As it is currently, they have no incentive to improve their quality/quality control because it is so difficult and time consuming for a consumer to go through and win the lemon law process that it costs them a hell of a lot less to have crappy quality and payout the small number of people that successfully get a buyback. As an aside, I have actually gone through this process with an attorney and even meeting all the criteria for lemon law in my state, it was still a nightmare going through the process and left me without a functioning vehicle for several months while it was happening.

  5. I've looked for updates and havent seen any. I'm not holding my breath for a fix at this point and I've had my truck into the dealer I think 9 times now since I got it at the end of november, pretty much just tired of dealing with the issues. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. I've been trying to convince myself the last few months to keep it. I'd go a few days without a problem and think ok maybe its working now, but finally at the point where I know I wont for that much longer. I'll either give ram a try or go for the new f150 even though I have more or less sworn off ford. I've never had a vehicle with so many consistent, intermittent problems with so many different aspects of the vehicle as this gm out of about 13 or 14 vehicles I've owned in my life.

  7. This has happened to me a few times, usually it fixes as soon as I restart the truck, but a couple times I have had to wait. I took it to the dealer, but one time had started working prior to arriving and second time worked as soon as they turned the truck came back on. Was told not anything they could do about it.

  8. I've had tons of problems with mine ranging from infotainment issues, safety tech issues, oil leaks and worsening vibration at highway speeds to name a few. I bought this over a ram because I thought it would be more reliable, but i have reoccurring and new problems almost every day. I definitely think there are quality control issues with these trucks.

  9. I get about 17.5 mpg with about 60% highway. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. Mine does this, but fairly rarely. It isnt frequent enough to really bother me, but wish I knew what it was. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. How am I a hypocrite? I didnt tell the other guy what works for him, he has been telling everyone that wants a crew cab and doesnt have a standard bed they are wrong. He can buy whatever he wants and needs, no one is telling him he cant. I need something different from him (as do a lot of people, this is why they offer different options) and he shouldnt be dictating what is right for anyone other than himself.

  12. You ever try fitting a rear facing car seat in the back of a double cab? I dont need the bed space, short bed is enough, I do need the interior space for my kids. When did you get to decide what is right for everyone else anyway? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. He literally is ridiculing people for not needing the longer bed and having a crew cab. People are responding harshly to him because he was being an ass about it and pulling the whole "not a real man" crap because people need room for their family and/or only need the short bed. I dont think anyone was attacking him for needing the double cab with longer bed, just saying that a lot of people dont need that. He just ignores it and tells people they are stupid. Hopefully just a troll. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. This actually started happening to me this last week ag 25k miles about, I just had my tires rotated so not sure if maybe they did something wrong there, but I'm getting a lot of shaking/vibrating that I never had before. Hoping it's just the tires. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. Ok seriously did you actually read anything I said? I clearly explained that I do use the bed, that I cant use an SUV because of height/size restrictions. I dont need the longer bed because what I haul is more an issue of height. I also do have my family in the vehicle sometimes and want everyone to be comfortable. I dont want an old beater. I drive a lot and can afford a nice truck. Why would I buy something based on your needs rather than mine? It isnt an issue of trying to show off or not needing a truck. I'm not less of a real man because I have a smaller bed, I'm just smart enough to know what I actually need and will use and buy the best, most comfortable version of that for myself and my family. Nothing I have said is complicated in the least. I dont know if you just aren't reading what I'm saying or are too dense to understand it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
