  1. Its not just the squat, its the gear ratio. Those 3.42's are really what you want, whether you tow or not. I have a 2017 silverado with the NHT package and 3:73 gears and the 5.3. The snap this truck has is what you want. RPM's are increased and the engine does not loaf along, its in its sweet spot. Sure fuel mileage suffers very slightly, but go for the deepest (highest numerically) you can get.
  2. Thanks guys for all the responses. I will have no problem selling these with the new michelin's that only have 20K on them. Probably look for a set of Trail boss 18" black rims or possibly a set of aftermarket rims. Flattop
  3. These are the 22" rims that I am talking about. They are off a 2016 midnight edition.
  4. I agree on staying hub centric, if the 1/8" spacer wont work I will sell these and order some with the correct backspacing. I have a few buddy's that have dibs on the black 22"s.
  5. Good to know, I would have no problem with a small (1/8-3/16) spacer. I don't believe any stock stud would support anything thicker than that. My new truck wont arrive for at lease another month, so I will do some test fitting then.
  6. Thanks for the reply, looks like they are going to be sold.
  7. Hello folks, I have a 2020 Silverado RST 4X4 on order and was wondering if anyone has tried the old K2 22" rims on the new body style? These are the 22" rims that came on the 2014-2018 trucks. Thanks Flattop
  8. Yes those are really good numbers. I just signed a deal and ordered a 2020 RST 6.2 extended cab and I got $17.500 trade in on my 2017 LT 5.3 w/ 98000 miles. I did get the new truck at invoice minus $500.00, and my truck will have 110K on it by the time the new truck arrives. Also will be needing brakes and tires soon after that.
  9. No that wont be a show stopper. I have a 17 Silverado 1500 with the Max Tow package currently. It has no fancy cameras, simply good gearing (3:73) and the nice mirrors that help with towing the camper.
  10. I just looked at the Chevy site and you are correct.That RST is exactly what I am looking for!
  11. Thanks for the replies, I guess I could just order the SLT and then order the towing mirrors and install them myself. Seems really strange to offer the Max Tow package ( for towing large heavy trailers) and not offer the large towing mirrors? If the 6.2 was an option for the SLE max tow, i would go that route. I don't want leather or the other SLT options, just a 6.2.
  12. Hi Folks, I am having trouble on the GMC website trying to build a Sierra 1500 SLT 4X4. I have a base model SLT with the 6.2 and the 10 speed, and the Max Tow package configured. The problem is nowhere is there the option to add the trailer mirrors? This configuration also allows the 18" rims and the 2 speed transfer case to stay on the order? I like that! Just throwing it out there to see if anyone has ordered a 2020 SLT with max tow and got the trailer mirrors? My salesman is on vacation this week, so I will have to wait to consult the dealer. Thanks, Flattop
  13. In the same boat, have a 2017 Silverado 5.3 with 97,xxx miles (currently at dealer for warranty AFM lifter issues) and am thinking of moving to a 2020. But these crazy issues I constantly read here really make me want to hold off or go to a leftover 2500. I have bought 6 new GM trucks in the last 20 years and its the first time I am not looking forward to a new truck. At least the last generation 2500 would have a 6.0 with no DFM, no stop start, real cable emergency brake, a real transmission dipstick, you know, the stuff that worked fine as it was. The penalty would be the mileage, but if you can have a reliable truck that can go 100k with no issues it may be worth it.
  14. My 2017 Sliverado 1500 4X4 has 86,xxx trouble free miles. Mobil 1 from the first 1000 miles, then every 6000 miles. I am going to try and get another 3 years on this truck. Not a real fan of DFM, and start stop at this point.
  15. Check the wires at the connector going into the trailer brake power control module. (its under the spare tire) We just had the same problem on a 2015 Silverado. The wire looked good at the connector, but when we slid the plastic wire protection back, there was an open (corroded) wire about 2" up the harness.
