Just wanted to talk about having our T1 truck lifted for a tire rotation or whatever. As we now know, GM has made this an ordeal so to speake. As far as I know, unless you go to a GM dealer or the place you do go to has the special spacer or adapter or whatever, then your brand new truck frame could possibly - actually most likely get damaged. Should we make a stickie about this, with what to do or what to tell the place other than the GM dealer you go to? Please excuse me if this already is. I just feel a lot of people dont know about this.
My LT Crew has been good since I bought it, and since getting a little over 4k miles, she has gotten better too. From what I've been reading, the LT models do ride the best. I think it's because they are made a little different from the RST models - a different spring or something, I cant hardly remember. It makes sense as mine rides very,very, well. Mine is a Z71 as well.
Shoot man, I live in NC, and my county boarders the Tennessee State Line. I in no way have ever found my NC GM dealers to come close to matching Wild Bill Gatton in Bristol, Tennessee. Of course, Ole Wild Bill and Bristol, Tennessee are only a 45 minute drive for me, so really they are more local than most of my NC GM dealers. Actually lol, only 1 NC GM dealer is closer to me than Gattons. At any rate, when I bought my Silverado, the NC dealers were at least $5k to $6k more. I'm just saying if its within reasonable driving distance- 100-300 miles, then heck yeah! Go to that other dealer. If the local dealer cant come within a $1k then to heck with the local dealer. Ya know? But, then again, from what I understand different regions get different incentives and rebates. I think it really handicaps my NC GM delaers as compared to my local Tennessee GM dealers.
Thanx to Zane. The digital owners manual is handy.
A little off track fellas, and pertains to maintenance, I think the major things to remember are @45kmiles - change both transmission fluid, as well as transfer case fluid @90kmiles repeat the above. This would be for 1500 T1's of course Does that sound about right?
As far as updates are concerned, I have a pretty base LT Crew Cab Z71. Not even a convenience package 2, just a 1. So, at any rate, how do we go about getting updates. I'm just thinking I prolly wont have many updates. I have the my Chevy app.
