I have the Extang trifold cover off my 2017 Silverado on my 2020 Silverado and there is less than 1/2 over hang. I had 2 dealers and the Extang dealer say it wouldn't fit it fits pretty dam good. You can see above the taillights the little bit of over hang. The biggest reason I love my cover is it locks really good and you can stand on the cover.
Deals on what. Here in Michigan dealer have very few cars and No trucks to sell. My dealer usually has 120 trucks on his lot. I was there on Tuesday they had none, zero not even a standard cab.
I don't really understand why anyone would want one. If someone has already broke in to your truck the window is probable already broke how much more damage do you want done to the inside of your truck. That box might stop some kid but a real thief he's just going to rip up your console and passenger seat.
Could be worse my dealer a large Chevrolet dealer have any New Truck to sell due to the chip shortage. They won't even guess when they might get trucks back in stock. But they say it will take at least a year. They stock around a 100 new trucks at a time. They have 46 people that have a truck on order that may never get built. Now is NOT the time to go truck shopping. Keep what you have or go without.
I have had my 2020 Chevy Silverado Z71- LTZ a year now. This truck is miles ahead of my 2018 a truck I truly hated. I have had no problems at all and I have just over 16000 miles so far. This truck is every thing that I every wanted in my truck. I'm retired and when we go it's always in the truck. First thing I did was change the stock wheels and tires. I went with BF Goodrich K02 285/65/18 and KTM wheels.
I was at the dealer the other day and my friend showed me one that had apart. Wet head liner is a dead give away it's the spoiler that is leaking. I'm think this is a no win those that think the rear widow is the cause will never think other wise. We have a large group of friends that all camp and ride motorcycles together and we count 18 of us that have 2019-2012 Chevy Silverados 2 have had leaks and both of them were fixed by sealing the spoiler. I'm going to end this.
I asked about the spoiler leaking that's what I was told. I use my power rear window a lot and have been looking after every time it sits in the rain or it goes to the car wash.So
I like reading these. My buddy is the service manager at a huge Chevy dealer. I have asked him how many they have had that leaked out of the 600 truck 2019, 2020 and 2021 they have sold. And the number don't come close to the reading I see on the internet. He said you want to find problems go to the internet. I keep reading about the same 3 problems 1-rear window leak 2- 8 speed transmission and 3 - bad lifters. I have been told the transmission issue was solved with the synthetic tran oil. The lifter is very isolated and and the window leak it's not the window it the roof spoiler that was installed without 2 round seals. The dealership Ron works at sold over 600 trucks and they have fixed 9 trucks with leaking spoilers. I'm going to get hammer for this aren't I ok give it to me. My truck a 2020 Silverado LTZ that has near 20000 sits outside I have had none of those problems. lets have it
My thought on this. The internet has not be kind to these trucks, so far I have had very little trouble with mine. But I was offered a GM extended warranty when I bought my truck for a real good price. I keep my trucks 4-7 years on average but like the dealer said to help it hold it's value a ext. warranty can only help and if you need it you got it. Buying it from the start was about half as much. I figure weather I use it or don't it should help me in reselling it at some point.
So what can we run with that outlet. I can't find anywhere in my owners manual how many amp, watts anything. Will that plug run my circular saw. Even the dealer wasn't sure about the bed plug, he said the one on the lower dash would run a charger for a laptop but not a coffee maker.
Last year 2020 I tried to order a RST and wanted power folding mirror. I could not get them I had to go with LTZ. I don't like how GM has changed the ordering system for new trucks but what are you going to do. In the end my LTZ is by far the best truck I have ever owned and I have owned several of them. After having 2 midnight editions have the chrome is a nice change.
I got my 2020 Chevy Silverado April of 2020 with in a day or two I was back at the dealer asking why my alternator needle was on the negative side of the gauge. I was told that was normal. It didn't seem normal but OK I will live with it. Now February 2021 I got a update and the only thing I can find different is now the alternator needle is straight up or a little to the right ( more like where I thought it should be) but the dealer claims the update had nothing to do with it. Anyone else notice where your needle is now?????????????????
So happy I bought a 2020 Double cab LTZ because it looks like it the last one's. GM has pulled this build in 2020 no more of them. You need to go to crew cab to get the LTZ package. Some of us just need that double cab over the crew. For me rear seat is for my junk . After having 2 midnight editions in a row I needed some chrome this time around looks like it will be my last double cab LTZ.
I too love mine. I ordered mine in February of 2020 it came in late March and I had to wait until the end of April dealer was closed due to Covid. I have a little over 12500 miles so far other than 1 recall I have had nothing go wrong. I hated my 2017 truck which I had to buy because I wreck my 2015 truck. But this truck has been great good thing I ordered this one because GM does make this truck anymore or at least how it's equipped after 2020 no more double cabs LTZ. I went LTZ because I have had 2 mid night editions trucks back to back and I'm tired of all that black, black everything. So yes I love my truck.
Same thing happen to me last summer. And I got it off the paint but those carpeted wheel wells. I took a can of flat black paint and painted over the yellow. It's been like that for 6 months and still looks good.
It could be the seats, I like the seat in my 2020 but I hated the seats in my 2017 Chevy Silverado to the point I had to sell it with only 42000 miles and I took a bath. Both have lumbar and heated and cooled seats but that 2017 was brutal on my lower back. Before I bought a 2020 I rented one for a week to see. I never could figure out why that 17 hurt me like it did. So lucky buddy I know what your going threw.
Is that it, I have left it out in 5-or 6 rain storms 2 of them lasted all day and most of the night. My dealer is a very big dealer and they claim they have sold around 1000 2019-2020 trucks and so far only had 7 of them with leaking windows. I know at least 4 guys that have them and none of them leak either. From what I have learned it seem like very few if any trucks built in Ft Wayne leak.
Mine is a 2020 LTZ and if I have anything I dislike its the alternator needle going to the negative side of the gauge and I know nothing is wrong with it. I have had mine near a year and have 14700 miles and have had it back for 2 recalls. I have driven it through like 1000 car washes to try and see if my back window is going to leak but still not leaking.
I too am a double cab guy. It's just me and my wife now. My last 2 trucks a 2008 and 2017 were both mid night editions double and this time we want something different. We went with a LTZ this time and good thing because 2020 is the last year you can order the LTZ trim in a double cab. My double cab fits my garage better, it has the big box, I'm not always the one that has to drive. I'm sure they make both the double and crew because they have a market for both. I have had mine since March and have 11400 miles on it and other than 2 recalls it's been a great truck.
I have a 2020 Chevy Silverado LTZ double cab I got in March it has 12800 miles and I have not had any problems. So far it's been the best truck I have ever had and I'v had a lot of Chevy trucks. From what I have learned it will be the last model year for double cab LTZ trucks. So this one could be my last. So yes I would buy it again.
But for me ordering out weighs the rebate. They rarely go down. I get what I want and nothing else. My dealer will bend over backward to make me happy. The truck I just got dealer gave me a nice set of Z71 floor mats and 10 free oil changes. My last 2 truck were mid-night editions all black I wanted a change this time . I tried to go RST I just could not get what I wanted without taking what I didn't want for me LTZ was the way to go.
