  1. 6.2 hands down. I've owned mine for 3 weeks. I had a 03 Chevy, 09 Chevy, 13 Tundra and a 16 Ram Rebel. The 6.2 is more powerful than any of them (which it should be) but it is very noticeable. My best 25 mile MPG is 20.2 and my best 50 is 17ish (I can't remember the exact number). I am in maine, 850 miles on the engine, cold, idling at time, winter fuel. So I expect it to get better this spring. If it wasn't a TB (2 inch lift, duratracs, lack of a large air damn on the front chin) it would be even better. 10 speed is smooth and always feels like it is in the right gear. Diesel for me was not an option as I didn't want to pay the extra for diesel fuel, def, maint etc. and in some of the areas I go diesel is not available (my camp). I wasn't interested in the 4 cyl turbo as I would prefer it to be proven for a couple years. I drove the 5.3 w/ 8 sp in a 19 TB and was surprised at how powerful it did feel. The 5.3 would be fine for me but I would always be wondering "what if"....
  2. I have a TB with the 6.2. 840 miles so not broken in fully. Cold here in Maine with winter gas. power is amazing. 10 speed is smooth. my best 25 mile mpg is 20.2. Best 50 is 17ish. I expect it to get better with more miles and better weather. so far this is my favorite all time truck.
  3. I think you right Thomcat. If the seals were any tighter the tail gate would not open with the auto down. Even with it any tighter the tailgate wouldn't want to close. I would expect the seals to soften up after some time and also warmer weather (been cold here in Maine).
  4. After two trips to the dealership last week I have my new cover installed. First cover came with mounting hardware that hadn’t been milled out (just a square block of aluminum).
  5. I don't notice any sluggish behavior or even notice when it does it's thing with my 6.2 and DFM. I press the gas and truck wants to launch every time from any speed. I have yet to "really" get on the throttle as I am just finishing the break in period. I didn't notice it in the 19 TB that test drove a year ago that had the 5.3 but that was only about 20 miles. Now the auto stop is another thing, while not super slow to start back up it is noticeable. About 50% of the time I forget to turn it off until after the first time the truck shuts off. Does this even make a MPG difference?
  6. Thomcat--do you work for Chevy/GM. Not asking to be a D. Just wondering how you know all this?
  7. It doesn't appear to be that but just to make sure I will buckle it and see if the noise goes away.
  8. Brand new truck has developed a "rattle" in past few days. Sort of sounds like a golf ball rolling around in the glove box or storage bin. More so on the passenger side and seems to come from behind the dash/glove box area. I don't have anything in the door storage on the storage around the center console. I have emptied both glove boxes. Seat belts are not causing this. Last Friday we had a lot of sleet and freezing rain so I had a lot of ice build up on the truck (wiper area, mirror, off road running boards, wheel wells etc). I got all of those removed at the car wash last night. The noise still persists. I only get the noise at low speed and typically turning or accelerating/braking. No noise when driving over bumps. The noise started after the ice/sleet/freezing rain last friday.... I haven't had time to get under the truck and see if there is any lingering ice that could be causing this. Any particular area to look at where ice could be hiding? Other thoughts? On a side note my best 25 mile MPG is 20.2. Being a 6.2 and TB I am very happy (that 25 had some auto 4x4 and full 4x4 too) as it was a mix of some city (20%) and 80% country roads 45-55 mph.
  9. 6.2 w/ 10 sp. Power and so smooth. Cabin space is huge. First truck that I don't have to put the drivers seat all the way back. Bed is huge. Love the looks. Been waiting to get a TB since they announced them. My last 2 trucks were non GM/Chevy. It feel good to be home.
  10. That is not what is on mine either. I can take real pictures later but here is basically what I have from the accessories page. Front Mat https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/first-row-premium-all-weather-floor-liners-in-dark-atmosphere-with-chrome-z71-logo-(for-models-with-center-console)-84348119?year=2020&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Short Box&wheelId=651&trim=LT Trail Boss&trimId=5101&drive=4WD&driveId=8&engine=6.2L V8 GAS&engineId=5920&bodyNumDoors=5 Back mat. My under seat rear storage looks like this pic too. I don't have the larger under seat storage that comes out to the edge of the seat. https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/crew-cab-second-row-interlocking-premium-all-weather-floor-liner-in-jet-black-for-at4-z71-84348198?year=2020&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Short Box&wheelId=651&trim=LT Trail Boss&trimId=5101&drive=4WD&driveId=8&engine=6.2L V8 GAS&engineId=5920&bodyNumDoors=5
  11. 250 miles within 67201. 15 matches of LT TB, Safety and blue. They might not all be in stock as Chevrolet and Dealers are slow to update their inventory as it took several days for mine to be removed from inventory on the web...
  12. Besides going to the dealer is there a way to tell if you have had the recall N192268091 done? I bought my truck on 1/31/2020. The truck is going to the dealer next thursday for a tonneau cover install so I can have it checked then but would like to know if should/shouldn't use the remote start through the app feature before then?
  13. When I do an inventory search from www.chevrolet.com with zip code 75001 (near Dallas Texas) I found 3394 LT Trail Bosses with the safety package (the only filters I used were LT Trail Boss and Safety Package). I did a 2000 mile search so most of the country was covered. Not sure why you can't find one unless there are non in your immediate area...
