I do like the GM safe but it's not available anyplace that I've looked and future availability is unknown. I think the Tuffy safe is a good alternative but it's not stated to work in a 2500HD. I'd like to have that question answered before ordering. https://www.americantrucks.com/tuffy-silverado1500-security-console-insert-356-01.html?utm_content=AT Interior - Storage|Tuffy&T5_Var4=S113477&utm_campaign=ATS+Silverado+Vehicle+Medium&dialogtech=ppc&utm_source=google-pla&utm_medium=shopping&T5_Var2=shopping&T5_Var3=silver&gclid=CjwKCAjw95D0BRBFEiwAcO1KDDiHFML6bHZxxEr2QmSyCGoGN1vdN4tO1AHANkPJz8tqO4MlWGl8RhoCEPsQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
The seat backs don't move up and a little forward when the seat bottoms are raised like they did in earlier models. The backs are fixed in place. You can raise the seat bottoms and see a little bit of room behind the seat backs but much of the available room is used for the storage pockets in the seat backs. The only way to know how much room is actually available it to remove the back seats and check it out. There might be room for an amp but it will be close. Even if the backs could be folded forward, the backs of the seats are not flat - the storage pockets protrude from the seat backs like small mountains.
I'm Looking for a console safe for my 2500HD but just about everything I see are for 1500's only. I'm thinking the seats and consoles are the same for both 1500's and 2500's. If you have one, what kind is it? Also, can anyone confirm that the consoles are the same or are they different?
No. They're fixed in place. Ford seats can be folded down but not the GM's.
I picked up my 2020 Silverado 2500HD with the Duramax engine on March 2nd. I have just over 800 miles on it and it's showing 40% oil life on the dash. If I bring up vehicle diagnostics on the My Chevrolet phone app, it will alternate between 89% and 40%. That is it may show 40% on the app when first checked and then show 89% if I update the app display. I know 40% is wrong and I'm planning on changing both oil and oil filter at 1K just so I can zero out the oil life monitor. The truck has a July 2019 build date and had 74 miles on it when I picked it up. Any ideas why this is happening? It's just kind of strange but will probably be OK after the oil is changed and the oil life is zeroed out the first time.
Doesn't matter whether you change the oil yourself or have it done, oil level should be checked between oil changes. Failure to do so can lead to serious engine damage. Bad things can happen.
Considering the numbers being sold, I doubt the front end is unanimously disliked - I think it's gorgeous from any angle. It is a big change for GM and that's good - these trucks hadn't seen a major change for a long time and they were getting long in the tooth. I really like the looks of the Ford Super Duties and the Ram 1500's but the Ram HD's haven't been upgraded to the new body styles yet so not so much for the Ram HD's.
Electric motors typically burn out because they overheat, otherwise they last for thousands of hours without any maintenance or attention. The motors in the mirrors run for a very short time and are unlikely to burnout. Most likely problem would be damage to the gearing, which seems unlikely in normal usage because they can be folded manually without any harm to the mirror. Use them as needed - they'll probably last for a very long time.
Why in the hell did you buy it if you don't like the looks or the design? These trucks cost too much money to buy on a whim and then have buyers remorse. A little home work is in order before making a major purchase.
The plow prep package gives you quite a lot for small additional cost. It must be a popular package because many of the trucks I see on dealer lots have it. I have it and can't judge how much stiffer the front suspension is but it's no worse than my 08 was without the plow package. I drove a lot of trucks before buying this one. The Ford and Ram HD's I drove were less comfortable that the Chevy. I like having the larger alternator, skid plates and pass through hole into the cab from the engine bay. In the end - it depends on what you're going to do with the truck. Snow Plow Prep Package: includes (KW5) 220-amp alternator, includes increased front GAWR on Heavy Duty models, (NZZ) skid plates (transfer case and oil pan), pass through dash grommet hole and roof emergency light provisions. Contact GM Upfitter Integration at www.gmupfitter.com for plow installation details and assistance (Requires 4WD model. Requires (CGN) Chevytec spray-on bedliner unless (ZW9) pickup bed delete is ordered. Upgradeable to (KHF) Dual alternators (220-amp primary, 170-amp auxiliary). Not available with (F60) Heavy Duty Front Spring Package.) Snow Plow Prep Package Power feed to accommodate a backup and roof emergency light1 A single 220-amp alternator Heavy-duty front springs Under body skid plates to help protect the transfer case from debris May require additional optional equipment
