  1. I have a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for those times I want to venture off road. My Silverado is way too big for off roading. Not to mention, I have no interest in getting it all pin striped. My Silverado's primary mission is to tow my travel trailer.
  2. I would not get a diesel if you only have an eight mile commute. That engine will never see normal operating temps, which is murder on a diesel.
  3. I'm at sea level and all premium at every station is 90 octane. No such thing as 91 octane or higher anywhere in the state. Regular is 87 and midgrade is 88.5.
  4. 6 speed with 3.42 axle. My 6.2 also has a 3.42 axle.
  5. On the highway my 6.2 gets over 20 mpg. Better than my 2016 5.3. For a lot of long distance driving I'd consider the 3.0. Driving short distances and never letting an engine warm up is much harder on a diesel than a gasser, but that doesn't appear to be an issue with you.
  6. I'm not aware of the app letting you learn only one tire, so my guess is that's you'd just have to relearn the three older tires and learn the new tire. Just follow the normal relearn sequence. No need to delete and re-add your trailer.
  7. Mine also had the 4.3. But I don't remember any real vibration problems. Good little truck. Only failed me once when the coil pack went bad. Mine was a two-tone blue over silver color with blue interior.
  8. Damn! I had a 1989 GMC S-15 that I had for 12 years. It had 111,000 miles on it when I sold it in 2001. Replaced it with a 2001 GMC Sierra that I sold in 2015.
  9. No. The trailer TPMS sensor is totally different from the one in the truck's tires.
  10. I tow and that is too much trailer for too little truck. A trailer that size is firmly in 3/4 ton territory. I'm sure plenty of people will say that they tow even more, but the bottom line is it's too big and heavy. You'll more than likely exceed the max hitch weight of 960 lbs. The 680 lb tongue weight is based on the trailer's empty weight from the factory. Add in propane, batteries and all your supplies and it's going to be much higher. My 5.3 would struggle in the mountains with a 5500 lb trailer. I can't imagine towing your trailer with a 5.3. But if you're only going 100 miles a
  11. My 2016 came with two "free" oil changes and my 2019 came with one. I refuse to let the dealer touch my truck for anything other than recalls, so I never let them do any of the "free" oil changes. I do my own.
  12. No adaptor needed for my 5.3 or my 6.2. Fumoto still the better deal.
  13. GM recommends premium, so I run premium. I'm not skimping out just to save a few pennies.
