  1. Of all the research I did before purchasing my Duramax Sierra Elevation X31 in June 2021, I never ran across that linked article. It did a great job of pulling everything together despite it being from a few years ago. Thanks for sharing.
  2. I understand it's springs, cooling, and a 3.73 rear end.
  3. I figured it was a bid process for generic suppliers. Traffic is high enough at this station with lots of diesel pickups in this part of North Texas, so I'll keep using it along with fill-ups at QT and other high-volume pumps. The truck seems like both well enough, and diesel for $1.90/gal after my grocery shopping discount at the Tom Thumb station is not bad at all...
  4. I've not been able to find anything online despite multiple searches and phrasing. Does the group know who supplies diesel to this grocery chain in Texas (specifically, the DFW area)? I know that the chain has an agreement with Chevron/Texaco for rewards points to be used for discounts at their stations, but don't know if the agreement is reciprocated in terms of supplying the grocery store fuel stations. I'm interested because I can typically save $1 per gallon on diesel by fueling there due to the amount I spend in groceries. I found an old post from nearly 10 years ago that it may have b
  5. I put a Tyger T1 roll-up soft tonneau cover on my Elevation yesterday. Easy install, does what I want it to do, and gives me access to the entire bed when rolled up vs. only 2/3 of the bed with a tri-fold. Good quality, easy instructions, and the Amazon product photos also included a nice step by step video for the installation that filled in the gaps from the IKEA-type instructions.
  6. If you're running one of the V8 gas engines (5.3 or 6.2), it sure sounds like one of the dreaded lifter failures.
  7. It almost looks like something acidic landed on your truck and etched the paint.
  8. I just took my 2021 X31 Elevation 3.0l Duramax on it's first road trip of significance - a 900 mile round trip down to the Texas Hill Country from north of DFW. We did quite a bit of driving on the twisty roads through the Balcones Escarpment, in addition to winery and brewery tours, shopping, and just getting away. Mileage for the entire trip, including the city and small town driving, starting and stopping, lots of rain, etc. was 24.1 mpg on the computer, and 24.3 by hand. Best mileage over a rolling 50 mile average was 28.3 on the DIC (that figure was hit twice). Cruise control used as
  9. I picked this one up on Saturday. 2021 Sierra 1500 Elevation X31 4x4 with the Duramax. Cayenne Red tintcoat. Loving this thing...
  10. Nothing new. My old 2006 VW Jetta had the same felt pad.
  11. I picked this up last Saturday. 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation 4x4, X31 package, 3.0l Duramax, Cayenne Red tintcoat.
  12. I just purchased a 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation X31 package this week. I'll be towing a travel trailer with a WD hitch, but nothing above 6000 pounds when wet. For that, a half ton is fine to be used split as a daily driver and tow vehicle, and the the 3.0l Duramax slots right in there. Cheers.
