  1. The main reason I mentioned gloves as the it sort of looks like there is a slider for shifting (see red circle in picture). If that piece doesn't slide then what is the point in having it? While the Park might very well be push button is R, N and D if not I stand by my comment of not being very ergonomically friendly to gloves or larger hands/fingers... Everyone has the preferences and after having a column, console and the dial shifters I definitely prefer a more traditional shifter.
  2. I currently have a ram with dial shifter. After having a column shifter for years in various GM trucks and a console shifter in the tundra that I owned I can say that I miss having a real shifter. I always liked to rest my hand on the shifter. I honestly like the console shifter in my tundra the best. RAM has safety featured the dial shifter so the truck can't roll away if left in gear and turned off, can't drive the truck with the door open etc etc....The dial has become a pita all because some people left their trucks in gear, didn't really hear of that being a problem with a real shifter...
  3. I really hope that is not the new interior for the 2021 trucks. Those types of infotainment screens are just fugly. That shifter should be a real pita to use with gloves or even large hands.... How do you even put it into park? Only one glove box? Loosing storage? The hump on the dash over the gauges looks huge (probably just me and the angle). That interior would make me not buy one....
  4. I have yet to find one on any dealer lot. Using the inventory search on Chevrolet.com, 75001 (Dallas zip code) with a 2000 mile radius I can't find any in stock. The only filters I used were LT Trailboss and 6.2 powertrain. Several dealers in my area have them on order but they don't show up in their "in transit" inventory on line. Keep waiting....
  5. So I was looking at the options between the LT TB and the AT4. I like both trucks and I am currently trying to figure out what my next truck will be. Both of those are in the running along with some other trucks... LT Trailboss-- Heated rear outboard seats--Not available Ventilated driver and front passenger seats--Not available Heated Steering wheel--available Standard/Options on LTZ & Highcountry AT4 Heated rear outboard seats--standard Heated Steering wheel--standard Ventilated driver and front passenger seats--standard I only like those trim levels in either truck. Even though that is what the website for each truck lists as the availability for those options can anyone confirm those for me? Are there any other differences between the 2 that you might not notice at first glance? I like the looks of the TB better but it seems like the AT4 has a few more features....
  6. I have heard that some with ship vehicles (more than likely most of the higher volume ones). I would call some and see if they offer. Sorry I can't recall any specific dealerships.
  7. Awesome looking truck. Extra lift? Tire size? Bumper. Thanks.
  8. Any pics of your truck with the 34" tires? I am assuming they fit without any issues (rubbing)? Did your speedo still accurate or did you use a device to recalibrate it? Thanks.
  9. For those of you getting the really good MPG what motor/transmission? 5.3 with 8 sp?
  10. I would think that would be a pretty smooth tire. Are you still running the stock rims?
  11. While I am not as remote as you are it is a very similar experience in my area (central Maine). A 10k difference. I guess I am not the only one with such large price differences.....
  12. Guys and Gals listen up for the truth (a second time)... So I add my experience to this post and feel the need to call me a liar....interesting. My local dealer is 3 miles from my house. My whole family, as well as my wife's, buys vehicles from him all the time. Not a high volume dealer. He owns all his vehicles. For what ever reason I can never make a deal with him. It all depend on the day and time if he wants to sell one of his cars. He doesn't need to sell any cars, he is very well off (rich), and it is not solely from selling cars. I went in and asked for a price. Showed him my trade. 20 min later he gave me a price. Yes it was for 72 months. He looked at my trade. He didn't involve a sales manager etc as he owns the place. I then went to a local Toyota dealer about 15 miles away. Same trade. They were cheaper but not much. Sticker was about the same price. I then went to the dealer mentioned in my other post for the dealer swap (got screwed). Went to dealer #3 and looked at other Sierra that had the options I wanted. Almost bought it. Went to dealer #4. They are located about 15 min away from original chevy dealer. Exact same truck as the original chevy dealer. 72 months. 200 a month difference. I even went back to original dealer and showed him the paperwork. He said that they weren't making any money on that truck. He wouldn't in his words "Give me his truck for free". I left. he didn't even come off his full price and low ball trade.... So again I was not lying. I have no idea why the difference. The 2 Sierra trucks were similarly equipped (yes I know not a direct comparison) but the price was not close on those as well. So he wasn't close on 4 other trucks with one being exactly the same..... Why is it people feel the need to bag on other people and call them liars? I thought the point of these forums was to help each other with problems, ask questions etc. This was my experience (just like the dealer swap was). My hope is that everyone has a much better experience than I did. I have dealt with many dealers that were great. 2 bad experiences in 25 yrs of buying vehicles.
  13. I haven't seen a TB with the 6.2 on a lot yet. I did a search from the chevy website for a TB with the 6.2 no results and this is within a 2000 mile radius of my zip code. The only options I picked were CC, LT Trail boss and 6.2. No match. They just opened up the ability to order last month so it will probably by another 1-2 months before they show up on dealer lots? A local dealer did tell me that they have them on order. They don't show up on their website yet, not even in transit. I have been waiting for a TB with the 6.2 since they announced it.....
  14. I have been to 2 dealers 20 minutes apart (Chevy) and had a 200 a month difference in payment. Same new truck (each dealership had the exact truck I wanted on their lot), same incentives, same trade. Two weeks apart. So the same vicinity is not always the same ballpark (I don't consider 200 a month in the same ballpark). I also had a similar scenario with a Tundra. Local dealer was almost 4k higher, so driving 80 min saved me noticeable money. Local dealer would not budge... I think a lot of this depends on your area. If you have multiple high volume dealerships in your area then they are all motivated to sell. In my area not so much. Mostly smaller volume dealerships.
