I agree 100%! Now add a $5.00 transmission dip stick and remove the motorized rear calipers and we would really have something to cheer about!
This is great news! These will probably be the last all (8) all the time firing V-8's we get in a half ton stock from the factory. I wonder if the exhaust flaps will get deleted also? Aftermarket exhaust systems will sound great on these engines!
I know on my Camaro, you just pull up on the e-brake one notch and Hill Assist is disabled. Not sure on these generation HD trucks if that works or if you even have a mechanical (old school) E-brake?
Wow, They really stick it to you in California! A 3/4 or 1 ton work truck that is by design not fuel efficient or environmentally friendly, gets smog tested like some commuter car? I guess this is one time I can say New York is doing the right thing not sticking it to Farmers, construction workers, Campers ect. that drive a large truck.
Correct me if I am mistaken, but wouldn't a 2500 (9200 GVW or more) be exempt from any emissions? Here in upstate NY they are exempt. They just get a safety check (lights, brakes ect.) Is California testing a 2500 for emissions?
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.
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
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.
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.
