  1. Yep it's a great sounding system. I wont be changing anything on mine!
  2. IDK gents, these trucks don't seem to have much roll to em. My 2015 had even less. When I first got that truck, I was out at lunch with a co-worker who commented on how stable it was, to the point when we parked he got out to "Measure" the sway bar. Shock: None there! This guy is very versed in mechanical eng and knows his stuff. He was astonished there was no bar there.
  3. Yeah my 2015 had the extra hole, and even instructions in the book. Having a extra battery is a "gotta have" for lots of folks. That was pretty stoopid. Especially the way these over board sensors nanny noses eat batteries!
  4. Reading through the owners manual about a month go I found out about "modes". "Sport", L8 is quite the nice performance setting. Use it all the time unless on the interstate. I purchased a 'Range" device and didn't bother to install it.
  5. This is what happens when you buy crap from China!?
  6. If you can get the family pricing on top of GM incentives I would go ahead and order one. If you're going ti wait for one to be built anyway, you might as well wait fir the one you want. I bought the Shadow Grey, I like it as it doesn't show off the dirt.
  7. I'm averaging 18 in mixed driving..although I do have a somewhat heavy foot. One highway trip I've taken so far it avg'd 21 ...I've had the truck two months, 2000 miles.
  8. So what is "fake" about the stock tips? All tips are aesthetic IMO.
  9. I asked the same question is a post earlier this week. No responses at all. It seems not too many people have them and the they modified the AFM unit to also deal with DFM. I bought one, but now am reluctant to install it. DFM is totally different than AFM and I can't tell when it's engaged. I'm probably going to sell my brand new unit at a discount pretty soon.
  10. I think they are great. I had a 2015 truck and these are definitely lower, but everyone (even the wife) has commented about how comfortable and roomy it is over there. But I can see where some folks might prefer to be higher. But before I spent $170 I would make a trip to hardware and see if could make something.
  11. I bought some for mine week1. Took it to dealership to get my tonneau cover installed, and they stole em! 90min drive later I'm home and realize it. This after it had to go back in shop cause the bed cover wasn't installed properly. I was rather pissed, so the wife called the SW and was nice but firm. Sure enough he calls back and says he found them on the tech's workbench with the expected "he forgot" excuse. I got a good deal from this outfit, but their service dept won't be seeing me again. I typically just delete survey requests, but I returned that one!
  12. Greetings, I purchased my 2020 RST/Z71 5 weeks ago. 6.2/10. Add ons include tri-fold bed cover, Bedrug, AVS Bug screen and Luverne Running boards. Won't be making any other mods. So far the truck is outstanding, 1300 miles. My last truck was a 2015 LT2 Z71. Five years, 63k and no issues at all. Hoping I'm as lucky with this one! Great group here! Happy to be among ya'll. Pappy!
  13. Greeting's ya'll! I have a 2020 RST 6.2. I have noticed a couple things about the oil readings that make me curious. When the truck is warm and at idle, the pressure gauge reads ~30. As soon as RPM's are raised 1500-1800, it starts to move up towards 50-60. Is this the general behavior ya'll are seeing? Also, the dipstick is not very useful it seems. There is barley 1/2 in of range. Right now my level is in the middle of the level indicator, but with an 8 quart pan what is that telling me? If there is no visible oil on the stick, how low is it at that point? Is the middle the nominal read point for "Full"? Any guidance here would be appreciated. TIA, Pappy
  14. Greetings ya'll, I've had my 2020 RST/Z71 6.2/10 for just over a month. I have 1200 miles on it and to date it's been a rock. I'm coming from a 2015 5.3 with AFM. So far the DFM is pretty smooth and I really can't tell if and when it kicks in. I typically drive the truck in "Sport" mode to get the better response. MPG is not a big concern to me. I purchased a "Range" device that is label "AFM Disabler" but per their website also disables DFM. Does anyone have one of these installed and have any feedback on it. I'm kind of hesitant to install it seeing as I can't quantify a "problem" to fix, and I always can put the shifter in "L" mode which will disable the DFM. So I'm really wondering if there is anything to gain form this, or if I should just let this engine do it's thing? Thanks in advance for any objective knowledge you can provide. Pappy
