  1. No bottom seat anchors for the middle seat, you use the seat belt. There is a top tether point behind the head rest on the middle seat. If installed correctly it is secure and part of the designed use for the car seat by their manufacturer.
  2. Crew cab w/ standard bed...aka the longest bed you can get in this config. Couldn't image having the short bed, especially if you put a tool box in the bed.
  3. I tried the Range Tech module first but it caused weird throttle surging issues for me. My issue was evidently an outlier because the techs had never heard of it and had no solutions. Other people love their stuff, so not knocking the company. Went with the autostop eliminator. Don't be intimidated by popping off a couple trim pieces around the radio and button area, it is simple and well documented in the videos. Quick install, works flawlessly and leaves the OBDII port open for other uses.
  4. The Range also wasn't compatible with my '20 with the 8 speed. It caused surging between 30-50 mph when constant on the throttle. Their techs couldn't explain or solve, so I guess I was a unique case to them. Went with the Eliminator that plugs in behind the center console switch and it has been flawless.
  5. I have the Carhartt seat covers through Covercraft, with the heated cloth seats. In my experience they still heat up just fine; it is possible it is slowed down slightly but not that I have noticed as the full effect is the same.
  6. I think I can feel it in the brake pedal when it creaks/rubs, I assumed it has to do with where everything comes through the firewall. Hopefully I won't need an entire new column like yours.
  7. Same issue here, first trip in (for an unrelated service) the dealership couldn't replicate the noise, according to them. It seems to be loudest when the truck is first driven and then less noticeable later on. It has increased lately so I will be taking it back in for them to have a second shot at finding the source of the noise. I am sure it is something simple, but I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the steering on a brand new truck to be as quiet as my 19 year old truck. Anyone else experience the noise and trace it to the steering boot or something else?
  8. As long as you are under there, might as well drop the spare tire down and grease up the pulley and mechanism so it works when you need it to.
  9. Similar issue. Installed the Range 005 on my 2020 Sierra 5.3 8 speed right after purchase. It surges at low speed with constant light throttle pressure, anywhere from 20-40mph when just cruising around town. It is usually subtle but often enough to sway my head forward and backwards as the RPMs jump around. Removed the Range device this week and it seems to have stopped. I'm going to drive it for a week or two and then re-install to make sure, but it is very disappointing to spend that much money and have it so degrade the driveability of the truck.
