I had a 2015 sierra Denali 6.2 8 speed prior to my 2019 LT trailboss 5.3 8 speed. I absolutely hated the transmission in the Denali. I would shift from park to reverse in it and there was always a delay then it would lunge. At 32,000 miles the transmission was replaced under warranty and still had major issues. I was very hesitant to get the 8 speed again because it haunted me but my truck is night and day better than my old Denali. I have noticed some very small jerks but for me as long as it doesn’t get worse I’m completely happy with it. I would say the 8 speed is a lot better in the new vs old trucks. As long as my trans isn’t a fluke I would buy it again. However if money is no object the 6.2 10 speed combo can’t be beat. My old 6.2 Denali had better mpg than my new 5.3.
My 2019 trail boss tailgate does the same thing. Most of the time the first button push just makes a click sound but doesn’t drop. Then if I press it again the tailgate usually drops. Mine has been that way since day one as well. I’d much rather have a handle since this mechanism doesn’t seem to be all that reliable.
I have a crew cab short bed trail boss and I just recently found out it’s longer than my previous sierra Denali. I tried to park in the garage due to a hail storm coming and noticed it’s about 4 or so inches too long. Anyone with this same setup having issues as well? I have an older home with a 2 car garage and I’m looking at moving. Are more modern homes built with bigger garages?
Yes and warranty is great but the hassle and risk of further problems that will result as they try a ton of fixes isn’t. Especially when they have no fix and just throw parts at it hoping something works.
My 2019 trail boss LT has the pop and at first I thought it was just rocks coming out of the tire tread hitting the wheel well. I sat in my truck for approximately 20 minutes yesterday with it idling and I bet it popped in the backseat roof area probably around 10 times. It seems to be getting worse and I only have 1200 miles. just ditched a 2015 sierra Denali that was garbage and now this. Crazy
I have a 2019 crew LT Trailboss that has a build date of 7/15/19 and was built in plant G. Is this something I need to worry about or has this occurred only in earlier built trucks. I’ve checked every time it’s rained and so far so good. Just wondered if this is a problem for only a certain time period of builds. thanks
Is there a way to know if you have the old transmission fluid or the new. I bought a 2019 Trailboss about a month or so ago and Its made me worry that it might still have the old fluid.
I’ve always had a tool box in the bed of my trucks but with my new trail boss I’m wanting to pull the trigger and get a tonneau cover. I’m looking at the retraxone mx and the bakflip mx4. I was wanting to see what y’all recommend, here are the following things that may influence the decision. If I go with the bakflip I’ll probably still put my below the rails tool box in. Obviously I can’t do that with the retrax due to the canister. Water tightness and locking security are the most important features. The bakflip doesn’t look as secure because of the pull cords. The retrax has a disadvantage because it takes up bed space from the already small short bed. Any suggestions are welcome. Also any other tonneau cover suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
No I don’t have a bed cover. I actually noticed it the day I bought the truck but thought I may have done something wrong. It’s not the biggest deal in the world. Just weird how the first time I open it, it clicks but doesn’t come down. Then I try again and it comes down easily. Then I close it and try again and it comes down every time.
So I have a 2019 trail boss I purchased within the last month. Should I be keeping an eye out for mine to be leaking? Is this an issue with a portion of the newer 2019’s that came out? Is this isolated to a small batch of trucks or what? I absolutely hate taking my truck to the dealer and it makes me sick seeing what you guys are going through.
When I double click the button on the key fob to let the tailgate down it makes a click sound like it’s releasing but doesn’t come down. If I double click the fob again the tailgate will then release and let down. If I shut the tailgate and double click the fob again it will release and come down every time after the initial time. Has as anyone else experienced this and is it normal? It does the same thing if I use the button inside the truck. Seems kind of odd to me.
