  1. 286K as of now. Due for an oil change. Just made two trips during month of Sept. One over 3200 round trip from GA to NM for an elk hunt in Carson National Forest. Truck was loaded down....probably actually over limit of truck. Then one week after I got back I made another trip with the family to VA Beach 1100 mile round trip. I keep dumping gas in her and changing oil. I did make a tire change at about 280K. went back to stock size BFG Trail Terrain tires. MPG is now averaging 20mpg mixed... I do mostly interstate/divided highway driving.
  2. Oil was changed according to DIC. Have used 0-20 Edge since I got the truck with 52k on it. I'm due for an oil change now and I'm at 278k
  3. 2014 5.3 4x4, 6 speed, crew cab, 6.5' (standard bed), 2.5" level installed around 65k 275550 as of today. 2 A/C condensers on 3rd transmission (factory went at 120kish, replacement went out 94k later was replaced under warranty) on the warranty trans now with approx 65-70k on it. front rotors and pads changed 2 times. rear rotors and pads changed 1 time 2 starters replaced plugs and wires replaced at 180k only mods has been 2.5" level to front only (no rear blocks) K&N air filter around 140k Currently have (and been there for over a year) ABS, Traction Control dummy light Was looking hard at trading truck back in late 19 early 20 but just didn't find the right truck at the time. In a way I wish I had found the truck as I'd have gotten a decent deal and in a way I'm glad I didn't as I'd be 50k in debt to a damn truck where as now I owe nothing on a truck.
  4. 2014 All Terrain. Crew Cab 6.5' bed. 4x4 5.3l 275550 at the moment. Just put another set of tires and well be heading on a 3600 mile trip at the end of august. will probably have 280k on her prior to that trip.
  5. I got the truck used in 2016 with 49k on it. I do edge 0-20 oil every 7k. A/C condenser went out at around 80k. I swapped that out myself. Transmission went out at around 126k on GM Replacement since then. Starter at around 140k. Pads and rotors also around 140k. Plugs and wires at the transmission swap at 126k. Just replaced the front pads and rotors again at 252k as the others were warped and vibrating badly on braking. I don't have a catch can as I have no clue what that is. Truck was mainly used on highway. I do tow a 21ft Bullet bass boat about 15 times a year(150 mile round trip to the lake and back). Also tow a 20ft enclosed trailer about 4 times a year. Off road with the truck has been minimal. Hunting club when its wet. basically muddy clay roads in Oct and Nov. I just got back from a trip to the beach in the truck. 500miles round trip. averaged 18.6mpg on dic. 2" level and 32" BFG on stock wheels. My son is 12 and I'd say this will probably be his truck in 4 years. I drove the truck as a daily in outside sales...so daily it was a highway queen... but it is my truck...so I pulled the boat, went hunting etc. I now have a provided work vehicle and the GMC sets in the driveway (except for the vacation trip and towing boat/hunting)
  6. Hey folks, Just wanted to throw out there that I just turned a 1/4 million on my 2014 GMC All Terrain. It's not been without it's issues here and there, but hey......It's still trucking along. I purchased it used with 48k on it back in 2016 and have been selling out of it since. I'm in outside sales and It gets driven plenty. Mainly highway but there are always gravel roads, dirt roads and a good bit of city driving to boot. I changed evaporator coil at some point, brakes and rotors at some point, starter some where in there. Also a transmission was replaced around 125k if I remember correctly. It needs windshield replaced as it has a crack. Also has a small spot of paint chipping on passenger rear door. Other than that it's getting about 18mpg and doesn't use any more oil than when I got it. Maintenance is basically Edge 0-20 every 7000 and grease what needs greasing. Feed it the cheapest 87 octane and roll. 4x4, 5.3 Crew Cab, Standard Bed, Heavily Optioned All Terrain model. I'd die to have a new one but I just can't crank out the money they are asking for one these days. My needs have actually changed and I'd love to get into a 2500 gas. Maybe one of these days the dealers will have plenty and rebates will be large (sarcasm)
  7. So.......No bucket seat option with console in the SLE HD in 2021? I may have missed it.
  8. Well I made it to 220785 miles and tranny let go. 3500 for GM warrantied replacement. Really really sucks as I am in the market for a new one and was trying to sell this one.
  9. If you have a Harbor Freight close by they have them at the store for 10 bucks...maybe could use coupon and get one cheaper. https://www.harborfreight.com/battery-operated-liquid-transfer-pump-63847.html?_br_psugg_q=battery+transfer+pump I have one that I transfer diesel into my farm tractor and also regular gas into my zero turn. Best thing I ever got. pumps about 5 gallons in a couple of minutes.
  10. Hey folks, I was searching the "inventory" area of GMC site and ran across this truck in South Carolina It is a pretty heavily optioned SLE on the interior. In the dealer pictures this truck has the "BOSE" badge on the driver speaker grille. I never seen mention of this in the past and I've looked at the build site since these things have came out. I do see mention in the area of infotainment that dealer upgrade to NAV was stopped on 4-17-20. Could this be what this is...Dealer upgraded truck? Unless they got the pictures mixed up with an elevation this is an SLE with Bose...I'd really like to know how this is done. here's the link. https://www.gmc.com/view-inventory/sierra-2500hd/details?x-symbolic=vdp&x-carline=sierra&x-modelyear=2020&q-sourcepath=/index/vdc-collections/2020/trucks/sierra-hd/sierra-2500-hd/jcr:content/vdcVehicleInfoBlockConfig/vdcShoppingLinks&x-bodystyle=sierra_2500hd#?radius=1000&models=Sierra 2500 HD&years=2020&customertype=GC&makes=GMC&postalcode=31088&filterconfigkey=ConfigAdmin_19Sierra2500&requestedPostalcode=31088&open-panel=Cab&open-panel=Box&open-panel=Drive Type&open-panel=Trim&open-panel=Color&open-panel=Packages&open-panel=Hours&bodyStyles=Crew Cab&boxType=Standard Box&drivetrainCode=4WD&trims=SLE&exteriorColorCodes=GAZ&interiorColorCodes=HV5&packageCodes=PQA&customSearchRadius=touched&scrollposition=700&vin=1GT49ME72LF109999&filtermatched=nearmatch&filtermatchedcount=6&filternotmatchcount=1&filternotmatchedstring=Packages: 1SA Driver Alert Package I&filtermatchedstring=Cab: Crew Cab|Box: Standard Box|Drive Type: 4WD|Trim: SLE|Color: Summit White|Color: Dark Walnut/Slate, Cloth seat trim&primarydealerdistance=300.4&bac=116431&pagenumber=1&dealerSearchBy=bac&primarydealerid=116431&primarydealerpostalcode=29566&[email protected]&primarydealername=BELL AND BELL BUICK GMC TRUCKS&primarydealerphone=8433998300&carouselposition=4&filmstripposition=4&dealercarousel=4
  11. been able to get the elevation with multi-pro all 2020 as far as I know. There are several CC short beds out there.
  12. Once you really get to digging around into all the options and such it gets very confusing. I too looked for an elevation in 4x4 with standard bed. My must have was the multi pro tailgate option which you can get on the elevation. However I only found one dealer in the US and they had 4 of them and all had the kicker music system in the multipro tailgate. That wasnt a deal killer but they didn't have the X31 option which I did want as it had the dual exhaust at the rear bumper. The elevation can be optioned out very close to an AT4 but you can't get leather seats, technology package, cooled seats and a good bit of the driver alert stuff offered with the SLT,AT4 trucks. You can however get an elevation with center console and bose audio with nav and subwoofer. Like someone said above. go to gmc.com and build one out the way you want. make sure to go through all the options in the menus. Multipro tailgate is in there but I can never remember where it is. I'd like to do a white CC Standard Bed elevation with chrome door handles, chrome wheels and 2" factory lift myself. I think that would look very nice. maybe upgrade to katskins leather on the interior.
  13. Thanks for the info folks. The truck that I had my credit union request a purchase order on was sold. Dangit. At this point I think I may just wait it out til next year. I'm not going to settle for a truck that isn't exactly what I want for $50,000.00
