It wasn’t a 2019 but I had the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 bags on my last truck. It had an 8” lift and Air Lift makes a spacer kit that I installed with the bags. I towed a 9k lb camper with mane and they did great. I would highly recommend the Air Lift setup.
I had a 2009 vortex max 6.0, same exact truck except the year model, that I bought brand new and just sold earlier this year. It only had 82k miles on it when I sold it but more than half it’s like was spent with an 8” lift, 35s, 4.88 gears, and a custom tune by Blackbear Performance. I also towed a 9k lb camper for roughly 3-4K of those miles. The only things I had to do in the 10 years I had it were replace the battery, replace the front wheel bearing(most likely due to the 35” mud tires on 10” wide offset wheels), and I replace the oil pressure sensor a few months before I sold it. So I was very pleased with the one I had.
I’ve run the Nitto Trail Grapplers and the Nitto Ridge Grapplers and have nothing but good things to say about both of them. They balance very easily and I’ve gotten a lot of miles out of them. The Trail Grappler is a mud terrain so they do have a hum to them, but the Ridge Grapplers an all terrain and are very quiet. And the Ridge Grappler has the same sidewalk as the Trail Grappler. So based on your request for a good all terrain that looks like a mud tire, the Ridge Grappler would be the best tire in my opinion.
Anyone know the latest on the release date when they will actually start building the diesel trucks?
Thanks for the info thus far. I’ve got a great dealer and salesman. I’ve bought several vehicles from them and they’ve been great and had much better pricing than anywhere else I can find. This is just the first time I’ve ordered one so I’m not familiar with the process and what to expect.
I’ve been looking at getting a new Sierra for a few months now and apparently I’m going to have to order a truck to get what I want. Specifically to get a leather bench seat with some options and not having the 5.3L. I have been planning on getting the 6.2L but now am seriously considering the 3.0 Duramax. I have never ordered a vehicle though and have some questions before I go back to the dealership. - Is the order sheet basically the same as the online build and price? So if you can’t configure it a certain way online you can’t get it? Specifically like certain packages such as the SLT Premium Package that includes bucket cooled seats, I won’t be able to get this package and have the cooled seats, but get it with the 40/20/40 bench??? - Should I get a better deal on a truck that I order rather than a truck off the lot since they won’t have to inventory it and have it sit on the lot? - According to my dealer they lose some of their money when they get a vehicle off another dealer’s lot and were not offering as good of a deal on vehicles they had to swap with another dealer. So would it count as being off the dealers lot if they order it? - Anything else I need to be aware of, recommendations, or tips to get the best deal when ordering?
I can’t speak to the quality as I don’t have them. I’m planning on ordering a set of the black ones after I get a 2020 though.
Not sure if you are set on them being the GM ones or not but you can get identical replicas of the chrome GM running boards on eBay for a fraction of the cost.
Does anyone know when the Sierra Build and Price will be available on the GMC website for the 2020 models? The 2020 has been available for the Silverado’s for a couple weeks now but 2019 is still the only option for the GMC’s.
I like my black dash and seats as well. My wife’s 2016 Suburban has the black dash/carpet and grey seats and I’m not as crazy about it. I like it better than the tan but would have preferred the black seats.
I had air lift bags on my last truck as well. As stated above the ones I had required 5psi minimum at all times and they were rated up to 100psi. At 75psi they lifted the rear end around 3 to 3-1/2”. I would highly recommend the air bags over the extra leaf. And get the on board compressor as well. I didn’t get the compressor at first but quickly regretted it and added it.
Now that makes sense to why there would be such a large gap.
