  1. 4.10 gears will be at 2450 RPM at 130 km/h.
  2. Before you drop any money on a Custom, be sure to check which features it has and, more importantly, which features it doesn't have. This forum is littered with folks who thought they got a great deal on a truck, only to complain it's missing something they thought every new truck came with.
  3. The 5.3 and 3.42 gears tells us you don't have the Max Tow package and your GCWR is 15,000 lbs. If your truck weighs 5,900 lbs on it's own, that leaves you with only 9,100 lbs for a trailer, passengers, and cargo. Advertised dry trailer weights rarely match actual trailer weights. Either pick a smaller trailer, buy a bigger truck, or be sure to post on here anytime you're towing so that us responsible motorists can avoid encountering you on the road. https://my.gm.com/content/dam/gmownercenter/gmna/dynamic/manuals/2015/chevrolet/equinox/CH-CAT-10217126_MY15 US Trailering Guide_122215.pdf
  4. Wait a minute... Are you trying to tell me this isn't 1989 and my truck doesn't have a heated air inlet? Balderdash! Next you're going to say they got rid of the throttle body injection.
  5. Too bad GMC used it as inspiration for the T1 Sierras.
  6. When you hold the button to disable, Stabilitrak will turn itself back on somewhere around 50 km/h. To completely disable on the older trucks, you simply unplug the steering position sensor on the steering column (in the cab.) Not sure if you can do that on the newer models. It does throw a "service something-or-other" message on the screen, but no codes. Your light sounds like a bigger issue.
  7. It's still alive and kicking. https://www.carsdirect.com/automotive-news/ram-1500-classic-will-live-on-for-2021 There's a reason Dodge sells a lot of new trucks: you don't see many old ones, do you?
  8. Do you have a tonneau cover? With mine off, I can drive gravel roads all day and there'd be a bit of dust in the bed and on whatever I had in there. With the cover on, EVERYTHING in the bed is COVERED in dust. I don't think this is about being OCD. It's about how the bed sucks in air around the tailgate when you have a tonneau cover on.

  10. Sometimes people haul things they would prefer to keep reasonably clean and dry.
  11. In Canada, it's $1100 for front & rear park assist, cross traffic, and blind spot alert. I think that's pretty reasonable. If you want it, pay for it. Simple as that. Personally, we're onto the 5th and 6th cross traffic alert sensors in my wife's Buick, so I'll pass on the additional electronics.
  12. Is this your first day? Allow me to show you around gm-trucks.com, where we smoke our lights and tint our windshields, then complain that the OEM lights are terrible and we can't see at night.
  13. In the Great White North, the True North edition replaces the Texas/All-Star editions. Some have badges; most don't.
  14. You can't replace the battery. You have to replace the whole unit when it dies. Awful.
  15. I think it was done simply as a reminder that Chevy trucks weren't always as ugly as the current generation.
