  1. Oh, probably, looking at that design. I was only familiar with them because they came up in a search for the new ones. These damn new ones just seem like such a lazy design to me. Then again, I suppose I'm not the target customer for them.
  2. Has anyone seen these yet, or know anything about them? They look pretty interesting, though no doubt will be quite expensive. Always thought the idea of custom brackets for Pelican cases and coolers would be great to have! https://www.pelican.com/us/en/discover/cargo-cases/ Signed up for the email list, so hopefully more will come out soon.
  3. Not hard to color-match a bezel. Especially a bezel that doesn't even match the interior design aesthetic. Honestly, they look like a part that was designed for the previous generation truck that they were too lazy to refresh, though perhaps ironically those trucks actually had very well-integrated upfitter switches. Admittedly, I'm quite picky about such things.
  4. Agreed. Personally, I don't feel like they actually match the interior to the point where they look aftermarket. Nowhere near as well integrated as the Ford Super-Duty ones.
  5. Congrats on the new truck! Just picked up the 2020 AT4 myself, but went with the 6.2 really just for fun. This is my first GM truck, came from my first truck, which was a Ford. Love it so far.
  6. I never said she couldn't get approved. It all comes down to the numbers. If she has a high enough income, debt-to-income won't be an issue. Obviously I don't know any of the numbers, so a lot of this is open to interpretation. Simply getting approved doesn't mean it's a good financial decision. Believe me, banks will let you make bad decisions all day long as long as their back end is covered. "Pre approved for 220" really means nothing. The devil, they say, is in the details. Mortgages are actually very easy to get. You simply need to meet the requirements and manage your finances accordingly. Reality is, a large car payment eats up a lot of buying power in your mortgage application. The only way to solve for that is to make enough money.
  7. Quick payoffs do not improve your credit. On-time payment history does. Having a certain number of accounts does as well. Unless she's making crazy money, or buying a very inexpensive house, I can promise you that her mortgage consultant is telling her to get rid of the truck to qualify for the loan. Having a $500+(likely higher) payment is very bad for her debt-to-income ratio, which will stop a mortgage application in its' tracks.
  8. These cheap camera's always have poor low-light capability. The cheaper the camera, the worse it is. This is why they always talk about low-light performance on new phones Adding better lighting will ALWAYS help.
  9. I mean, argue against that being their motive, but how would slower acceleration not impact EPA rating? At the very least, fuel mileage. If it doesn’t though, even less of a reason to implement it. At least let me change it.
  10. Not their place, IMO. Frankly, it doesn’t serve them either. I’d bet it has more to do with EPA rating than anything else.
  11. I’d rather tune, but I’m not spending $2k to do it. I guess that leaves me with this. Frankly, throttle response is 75% of my desire to tune anyway. Just me or is it REALLY bad in these trucks?!? First GM for me, so maybe this is normal?
  12. I had a Revolver X4 on the F150 I just traded in. LOVED it! Even got it for around $750 on some random Amazon deal. It’s high on the list for this truck, but I keep reading about figment issues on the MP Tailgate, though I’m can’t seem to understand what the figment issues actually are. Don’t have the CarbonPro. Have always liked Retrax-type, so I’m considering those as well.
  13. Really want one of these, but having a hard time with the price. Is it easy to get a deal on one somewhere? PS, kind of regretting getting the black truck instead of the white!
  14. I've owned a number of different Android phones over the years as well. Most recently a Galaxy S8, for a few months. Could never stand the inconsistency between different manufacturers versions of Android and the subsequent battle to figure out which app or config menu to change the exact same setting. Owning tablets AND phones, this gets to be quite annoying, especially when you switch both out on different cycles close to every year. On that note, swapping an old device with a new one is very clunky and the importing of data can be very hit or miss. On iPhones and iPads it's simply a non-event. I do have a MacBook, though also a ThinkPad, HP ProBook, Microsoft Surface and about 5-6 other desktops, so that really isn't a factor. Also, I can't really think of any ways I even interface my mobile devices with my laptop, outside of Outlook/Exchange. As someone who is quite tech-savvy, having owned smart phone's since the iPaq and old Blackberry days and having owned literally 40+ smart phones(No exaggeration), I am fully capable of figuring out how to use them. I just decided five or six years ago that I no longer wanted to HAVE to learn a new device every time I buy one. I'll save that tinkering for my trucks, computers and guns. I just want my phone to work. Really nothing against Android though, but I've been down that road and simply prefer the iPhone/iPad life. Wireless CarPlay/AndroidAuto NEED to get figured out though. No excuses. I think wireless CarPlay was actually implemented in a recent BMW as well, so it DOES work. Probably just a cost-saving measure by GM. On that note, has anyone used one of these? https://carplay2air.com/?sca_ref=93288.fQQ4Wbgfh0 Want to buy one, but afraid that a simple phone update could make this a paperweight, since I'm assuming it's just cloning the USB connection. Seems as though that could be misinterpreted by the device as a security threat.
