  1. I noticed the Alexa app on mine as well. Haven't used it yet
  2. I remember reading the thread about the cab popping when backing out of the driveway, and that crossed my mind if it was the same sound. Mine just happened running down a smooth highway at 70 mph, so I wasn't sure if I was experiencing the same thing. Hadn't read anything about the exhaust "complaint" yet, but if this is all common knowledge, thanks for the heads up and I apologize for repeating another thread. At least my mind can rest at ease now. lol
  3. Has anyone else noticed the condensation from the A/C dripping onto the exhaust after they have been driving the truck and hearing the sizzling sound every time it drips when you get out and shut the truck off? I've had my truck for a little over 3 months now and this has never happened until this past Friday after about a 3 hour trip. Now it does it after every trip, even to and from work. I had my first oil change done Thursday morning, but did drive the truck back and forth to work Thursday and Friday before the road trip and still never noticed it. At about the 2.5 hour mark into the drive Friday night, I did hear a loud metallic sounding "pop" that sounded like a rock or something hard hit the top of the cab. It was loud enough it startled me and made my dog jump up from a dead sleep in the back seat. It did echo somewhat in the cab, so hard to pinpoint exactly where it came from, but it sure sounded like the top of the cab right behind the front row seats. When I got to my destination, that's when I noticed the sizzling sound for the first time. I just assumed it was residual washer fluid dripping onto the exhaust as I had just used quite a bit attempting to clean some of the bug splatter off the windshield. I looked the whole truck over searching for a rock chip or anything that might have been the source of the loud pop that I heard, but I could find nothing. Not sure if it is all just coincidence or not, but does anyone have any ideas why the route of the condensation would suddenly change and be dripping onto the exhaust? It's not that big of a deal I don't suppose, but kind of annoying every time you shut the truck off and it is a constant "drip... sssss... drip....ssss" for several minutes until it cools down.
  4. Picking up rock for a landscaping project a couple weeks back. Truck tows great, even without having the Max Tow Package. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Mine had been doing this since I bought it in March. I keep it on the home screen 90% of the time, but I'm always looking at Trip 1 to see how many miles I have on the current fillup and what kind of mileage i'm getting. Last week on the way home from work I sequenced over, it popped up randomly on Trip 2. I scrolled up to Trip 1 and left it there for the remainder of my drive home from work, and made sure to shut the truck off with Trip 1 showing on the display. It's been about a week now and SO FAR, every time I sequence to the right from the Home screen, Trip 1 appears. Prior to this, I would always sequence over, scroll up to Trip 1, and then sequence back to the Home screen. It would never go back to Trip 1 after that, I would have to scroll up again. You might give it a shot what I did above. Good luck.

  7. You're the one hogging all the hand sanitizer!
  8. I kinda agree with you. I like the newer gen head unit and the location of the brake controller better than the previous gen, but other than that, I wouldn't consider it much of an upgrade. There is a ton of blank space plastic in the new ones that I feel could have been better designed. Either way, I don't hate it and it's functional.
  9. Truck Hero acquired BAK Industries some time back and now own extang, BAK, Undercover, and I think a couple others. The tri-folds are very VERY similar in function and design between them. Probably made in the same factory. I don't think i could definitively tell you one is better than the other as they are all very popular with similar reviews
  10. One thing that did piss me off when I first purchased this truck is that is has a damn manual dim rearview mirror. How GM cannot put an auto dim rearview mirror in a $56k truck just baffles me. All the windows were tinted from the factory, so when I test drove it at night, it never bothered me and haven't thought about it again since. Just another area where they cut costs to get all these new editions to come in below LTZ/High Country price point.
  11. Customization is part of the fun and what sets it apart from the other trucks on the road. Sneaking some of those purchases past the wife is sometimes a different story.
  12. I've had the Bakflip F1 in the past and currently have the Undercover UltraFlex. Knock on wood, never had any issues with security. If I get broken into now, i'm blaming it on you. No real complaints on the bakflip, I just went with the Undercover as the bottom side is carpeted to match the BedRug and I like the smoother finish on the topside better than the textured finish on the bakflip. We will see how it hold up with time. The bakflip did start to fade after a few years, but nothing terrible. I'd hit it w/ some Adams SVRT or something similar periodically. As far as water entry, the 4 corners are going to be the only real concerns as long as you get the seals on the front and rear in good clean contact with the bed/tailgate. A few well placed pieces of weather stripping in the corners can help with that as well. I do wish I would have given the Revolvr X4 a closer look when I was searching. I was back and forth between tri-fold and retractable and decided to stick with tri-fold. The revolver could have been a good balance in between vision, security, and bed accessibility.
  13. I stand corrected. Forgot to list the power folding mirrors. I do wish I had those at times. Fortunately I don't need them on a daily basis. Just to be clear, my previous post was only comparing to the LTZ I was looking at on the lot. You CAN certainly get a lot more features in a fully loaded LTZ if you're willing to spend the dough.
  14. I was between an RST and an LTZ when I was looking to buy. I did not order a custom truck, these were two that were already on the lot. The RST that I ultimately chose has leather bucket seats w/ full console, 8" Touchscreen w/ Bose, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot alert, push button start, remote start, heated steering wheel, heated seats (but not cooled), remote/power lock/release tailgate (not power close), plus it came w/ the 6.2 and 10 speed. The features that were on the LTZ but not the RST... power close tailgate, cameras in the side mirrors, lane departure assist, cooled seats, wireless cell phone charging, spray in bed liner. It also had the 6.2 The reason I ultimately went with the RST is it checked every box that I considered a "must have" in order to make it worth starting a new car payment. It was also just over $3k cheaper than the LTZ. Sure, the few added features of the LTZ would be nice at times, but I don't find myself disappointed in the truck that I have. I love my truck, and I personally prefer the color matched bumpers/grill. To me, the LTZ's are hit or miss on looks with the chrome depending on the color of the truck and the wheel/tire package, etc. OnTheReel's black LTZ is slick... some of the others look more like a custom or Base LT model, IMO. Good luck with whichever route you choose.
  15. How are these holding up, and what are your thoughts after having them for several months now? I really like how tight these sit to the rocker panel. I'm about to pull the trigger on them, but thought I would ask a real world user their experience with them.
