  1. I have the AT4. It's not 25 mpg but i got 23 mpg on over 260 miles on a recent trip with speeds ranging between 70-75mph and a lot of slow downs. I agree with you on the city but highway is better than EPA estimates. Picture attached for proof. If i drive on a stretch of highway at 65mph, 24mpg is very much attainable. I didn't get the 6.2 for it's gas mileage, just saying it like it is.
  2. That's interesting. Most body shops i have gone to won't paint chrome and if they do, they won't warranty it. It's good to know you have had good luck with it.
  3. Small correction, the powder has to be ionized not magnetized so it sticks to the metal. The key is not that the powder won't stick to the plastic because some branch of powder coating can be used on MDF wood. The key is that the plastic won't survive the curing temperature of 400F. @Ronald Brooks, for chrome on plastic, your only real option is to wrap as others have mentioned. Don't try to paint chrome as it will come off sooner than later.
  4. Couldn't have said it better myself. Looks are very subjective and if i have learned anything from car forums, you are just going to start a pissing contest with this. We should just be glad GM decided to make 2 different looking same trucks to cater to all and just leave it at that.
  5. Got this [23 mpg] on a recent trip averaging 70-75 mph with quite a bit of slow-downs. Not bad for a factory lifted 6.2 truck. I do have a tonneau cover though and that helps especially over 60mph.
  6. You should look at this thread, could be related. It seems to be happening with the 6.2 w/10 speed. No one is quite sure what is going on. I'm having the same issue but I've chosen to ignore it since they can't figure it out. I don't use auto start/stop anymore and now i only hear it sometimes when i start my truck. It's not the flappers. I thought mine was coming from the flappers too.
  7. Right you are. Looks like they offer a lot of customization on their trucks, right down to the color of the sewing in the seats. I have never seen a dealership offer that much customization. That's impressive.
  8. Your wrap looks really good. Must have cost a pretty penny.
  9. I'm partial to the looks of the Sierra which is primarily why i got the AT4. Whilst searching for wheels on Fuel's website, i came across this Silverado and i was like wow, that is beautiful. Those lime-green ascents are very well done. And is that matte gray i see? If i was getting the Silverado, this would have been my primary motivation; to make it look like this. If this is your Silverado, please show yourself to receive a like. I ended up purchasing those wheels, least i could do. P.S I don't want to start a pissing contest between Sierra and Silverado appearance.
  10. Subwoofer installs on the driver side rear. Wire routing goes on the passenger side. You can see in the pictures above.
  11. @Matty Patty finally got around to taking the picture. Looks like i have the same part # as yours. The only difference is the last line which i'm thinking is maybe the serial #.
  12. Alright, tips installed. Looks awesome. Pics don't do it justice. I highly recommend this to everyone. Technically you don't have to remove the side steps to replace the tips. The space is tight but it's possible with a ratcheting wrench and a lot of elbow grease. This is how i installed it with the help of a friend.
  13. That is not a good deal on a '19 AT4 especially at this time of the year as @OnTheReel has pointed out. I purchased mine end of July for $54k with MSRP of little less than $66k, i didn't have a trade-in. You should be able to get at least $10k off. One mistake people tend to make (not directed towards you) is coupling the trade-in price with the new truck price. You should negotiate these 2 separately. Another mistake people make is not appraising their vehicle before taking it to the dealership (again, also not directed towards you). If you haven't already, you should take your truck to Carmax or whatever is in your state and have them give you an appraisal which you can then use to negotiate. Even with the tax trade-in benefit, you can come out ahead.
