  1. I as well am getting worse mileage in my 20 than my 17 duramax. Roughly 16/17mpg on my '20, and I would get 19/20 on my '17 on average. My best in MPG in the 30 mile setting was 27mpg in my '17 on a annual trip I do and I did the exact same route this year in the '20 and it was 23mpg as the best in the 30mile setting. Not going to lie, I was kind of disappointed. Thinking the new 10 speed would make it even better on gas... That being said, these diesels always run more efficient in warm weather, and I only got the truck in October and being in Canada it is cold. So maybe it will be better come summer. I just did our annual snowmobile trip in February. Flat highway for the majority of it and a 7hr drive. My truck had two guys in the cab and two sleds on the sled deck. I averaged roughly 13mpg for this trip which was about 375 miles to a tank (and HALF A TANK OF DEF which has been super good up until this trip). Last year I did the same trip in my '17 but with 4 guys in the cab, two sleds on the deck and a two place wide trailer with two sleds in it. Averaged roughly 16mpg and easily had 425 miles to a tank or more WITH TWICE THE LOAD. I'm thinking it must be the tire size on these new trucks. My '17 had 33s on it (actually like 32.6" or something) and my '20 has 35s on it now (measure 34.8 or something)
  2. When I have my sled (never mind two) up on my deck I get people flashing as well.
  3. I am running 18x9 +18 Method NVHDs with 35x12.5x18 BFG AT2s on stock suspension and no rub.
  4. It does show there in the instructions, but I agree it was too tight for me. and after it was in there, it would be extremely hard to remove that cover again without cutting the ties for the controller. I mounted mine to the wire loom and bracket that are just in front of the box there. Ill take a pic in a bit. I have almost 15,000miles on mine and perfect.
  5. I know I have posted this before, but because the last couple people have been talking about GMCs vs Chevys and +20 offset wheels I thought I'd post again. My tires are 35x12.5r18 BFG AT KO2s on Method NV HD 18x9 +18. No rub whatsoever at full lock in and out of my steep rough entrance into my farm fields over furrows and such. Yes I know its dirty!
  6. Running boards from the 19+ 1500s fit on the 2500s as I just installed my AMP power steps this weekend.
  7. I do this all the time too while visiting job sites as my dog comes with me to work. In the summer heat and winter cold, I leave the truck running if needed for him. The truck with the fob in or out only runs for 15min or so and shuts itself off. It’s probably an anti idling thing, but it’s annoying. My last truck, I’d leave the keys in and lock the truck with the app on my phone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. not sure why the picture isn't working in the thread...
  9. Curious about this. I leave my truck running often in the hot summer or cold winter as I bring my dog with me everywhere and he stays in my truck when I do site visits. I hate how the truck turns itself off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thats a long time to wait for a deck! That first ride will be extra sweet haha My Marlon comes with this exact Putco Blade rear LED bar, that's why I was asking. But sounds like you've built a similar scenario on your truck just a different setup.
  11. Thats the EXACT info I was looking for. Planning on putting my deck on in a week or two. I will order this harness now! I just didn't want to buy this harness, and then still have to splice into my factory tail light harness for the reverse light like I did on my 2017. You must have a Marlon Xplore Pro II deck as well then?
  12. Just to bump this thread.. My sled deck has this same light bar built into the back. The wiring harness that plugs into the truck is a 4pin trailer plug, with a separate wire that you need to tap into the reverse light. Is that still how this harness works as well? If I could avoid tapping into my taillight wiring harness for the reverse, I would do this. But it sounds like it is the exact same setup as what I already have?
  13. I had a 2017 Silverado HD Z71 Midnight. I now have an AT4 HD. I have always owned a Chevy and feel kind of weird in a GMC.. but the Chevy front end left me on the fence. Some angles I loved it, some I didn’t. The GMC looks great from every angle and was the “safe” choice. I also figured it may do better with resale. But I am loving the chevys more and more every time I see them. And I knew that would happen. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my truck. The AT4 is one of the nicest packages I’ve seen in an HD.. but I wish it had a bowtie on it. Waiting for a Midnight/Trail Boss Silverado I guess.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. They are big yes, but you get used to them. If you think the new mirrors are bad, you should have seen the last gen. That’s why these are mounted on the doors with the funny arm. They may look a little off but the open up a lot of view compared to the old style Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
