  1. Has anyone actually had their slider replaced with a solid rear window? I was quoted $630 from a glass company to have it replaced and was told it would be able to be swapped. Just looking for any advice before I decide to go ahead and do it. I haven’t had the dealership try and fix it because from what I’ve heard there is no permanent fix and I don’t want to risk the damage when they try the repairs. What do y’all recommend?
  2. Mine has the popping sound too and I wasn’t going to mess with it for fear they would mess something up. Since I’ll be taking my truck in soon as well I’ll have them try to fix it. The popping is annoying and I hate explaining it to everyone that gets in the truck with me.
  3. Leak is getting worse and I’m about to take it into the dealership. Fingers crossed they can fix it but I’m very doubtful from what I’ve seen.
  4. 2019 trail boss with 7k miles. Went through a car wash the other day and noticed a small amount of water coming down the drivers side rear window. Anyone know how long they typically have the truck for a fix. Are the fixes better now or am I still in for multiple trips to the dealership because the leaks come back?
  5. I recently went slow on a dirt road with some small washboard type ruts in the road. I literally thought the truck was going to fall apart. For being a “trail boss” this thing rides like crap unless it’s on a paved road. Highway bridges also cause it to bounce like crazy.
  6. Has anyone had any damage done to their truck getting the bed aligned? Mine is in the shop now and I was told it has to get sent to their body shop. I’m a little nervous about it.
  7. Unrelated to the multi pro version but I have a stock Trail boss and I have a 3 inch drop tow and stow b&w hitch. It worked great for my previous trucks but seems kind of short for the taller trail boss. I was thinking about getting the 5 inch drop but I’m worried it will drag going out of driveways and such. Anyone able to give any advice on this? Thanks
  8. I’ve always just had chest type tool boxes but with the short bed they just take up too much room. I’ve never had my tool boxes broken into but I’m thinking it wouldn’t take much more effort to get into those than a tonneau cover. I’ve always wanted a cover but there are so many options and for the prices they charge for them I’ve just never pulled the trigger on one. I still don’t know which one would be best but I just hear more about the bakflip brand than most others so I lean towards it. Is anything superior to a mx4 that has the same fold back style?
  9. I’m in the market to buy a tonneau cover. I like the style of the bakflip mx4 and revolver x4. The most important attributes for me is security and water resistance. I have seen videos of possible entry made from devices like coat hangers slid under the covers and pulling the cable to unlock them. Has anyone ever actually had this happen? I see other models have unlock designs that seem to be a little more secure. Can anyone give me guidance before I drop $1,000?
  10. Someone please give me ideas to help with the ride quality of my 2019 LT trail boss. I’m tired of going over small bumps in the road and feeling like I’m in the ring with Mike Tyson. I’ve played with the tire pressures but that doesn’t seem to help much. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Does anyone have this accessory? I’m looking for more pictures of how it looks and opinions on it. Thanks!
  12. I have a 2019 LT trail boss and it has manual fold mirrors. This is one feature I really miss from my previous truck and was wondering if it’s possible to add power folding mirrors. Has anyone done anything like this?
  13. When I got into the truck the next day the check engine light was gone. Hasn’t shown up again. Not sure what the deal was.
  14. 2019 5.3 8 speed trail boss. Any idea what might have caused a check engine light. With all the recalls and now this I’m really starting to get pissed off. Traded a 2015 sierra to avoid problems and now I wished I would have kept it.
  15. 2019 5.3 with 8 speed 4,300 miles and it is a lot better than in the previous gen trucks. The only issue I have had is a rare very hard jerk putting the truck in drive. I’ve been going through neighborhoods slow house shopping. This jerk has happened a few times when I stop and put it in park to look at a house then put it in drive and it jerks hard. Pretty rare occurrence and haven’t taken it in to a dealership since I already know the answer (could not replicate). Other than these about 4 occurrences the transmission has been excellent.
  16. Is there a way to disable the 3 honk alert when the truck is running and you step outside with the fob in your pocket? It is extremely annoying.
  17. I learned early on the 8 speed needs some time to settle when shifting from reverse to drive or vice versa. I wait and sometimes it still happens. I will say my 19 is leaps and bounds over my 15 sierra. I’m just hoping it’s an inconvenience and not something I will be spending thousands of dollars on prematurely in the future. That’s why I’m hoping to hear people with high miles say it holds up over time.
  18. I need someone to make me feel better about my 2019 trail boss purchase. I traded my 2015 sierra Denali 6.2 8 speed in on the 5.3 8 speed trail boss. The Sierra had the transmission replaced under warranty at 30,000 miles. It still clunked around but not as bad and had other problems which led me to trade. Now I have the trail boss 8 speed and although it is better it still has some weird shifts and twice from reverse to drive I had a delay and it almost felt like the rear axle was going to rip off the truck. I’m wondering if anyone with the k2’s have high miles on an 8 speed with no problems other than some clunkiness. Every time I drive the truck I’m reminded how the Sierra trans failed and all the problems the 8 speed had.
  19. I wish there was some way they could rip this pos transmission out of my truck and put in the 10 speed. They should have put the 10 speed in the LT trail boss to begin with.
  20. Build date is 7-15-19 which I believe means I have the new fluid. I had a new transmission put in my 2015 sierra and new fluid in it and it still had issues. The fluid may fix a few things but the main problem is still there in all the 8 speeds I think.
  21. I really thought things were going great with this truck minus the 4 recalls I need to get taken care of. Now I’m just regretting not waiting until 2020 to get the 10 speed. I drive a 2010 piece of junk ford explorer for work with 183,000 miles on it and the transmission is smooth and works great. Wish my new truck could do the same.
  22. I have experienced an issue while backing out of the driveway. Once backed out I go from reverse to drive and there is a delay and then the truck violently slams forward. My truck has 3300 miles and it has happened twice. Today was the second time and it was bad. This has been the only issue I have experienced other than very minor jerks and stuff which isn’t a big deal. I usually always let the truck warm up a minute or so before I drive because of the weird things that happen with the trans. I came from a 2015 sierra Denali where my 8spd had to be replaced at 30,000 miles for similar issues but happened all the time. many help would be appreciated! thanks
  23. I have a 2019 LT crew cab TB (18” stock wheels with duratracs) and for the most part I’m happy. I came from a 2015 sierra Denali with a 6.2. I miss the 6.2 and It kind of pisses me off they strategized to delay the 6.2 a year for the TB I’m sure solely for money. I will say as far as the 8 speed trans goes it’s 100% better than my Denali. This was the reason I got rid of the Denali which already had it replaced under warranty at 30,000 miles and was still a piece of junk. There are two complaints I have with the TB. The suspension is really soft compared to previous trucks. I can grab the side of the bed and shake the truck all over the place. This made me think it would absorb a lot of the road. However I’ve played with different tire pressures and it is flat out a rougher ride than I’ve ever experienced in any other half ton truck I’ve owned. I also got better MPG in my sierra Denali with the 6.2. I attribute this to the lift and duratracs on the TB but I figured the 5.3 would be somewhere close but it’s not being 1-2 mpg lower. I’ve never been in an RST but they seem nice. I think it basically boils down to looks. I wanted a stock lift which is why I went with the TB. If looks aren’t a big deal definitely go with the RST and save a little cash. Only regret is not waiting for a 6.2 TB.
  24. What does the off road mode do? I have a 2019 LT trail boss and it only has tow haul and sport mode.
