  2. Z71 vs Max towing package

    I've never seen the topic discussed. Max tow has extra payload capacity so usually that means extra stiffness. Max Tow with the right amount of weight in the bed...butter. Honestly the difference would be marginal. I have a 15 crew std bed on 20s and 33 ATs. I think it rides fine. Stiff, but it's a truck and I needed the extra payload and towing. I will say this truck has been an absolute beast and still going strong at 170k miles. Still smooth!
  3. I'll sing the highest of praises for the 15 nht 5.3l 6spd with 3.73s. I bought this truck for one reason. To do it all. I tow, haul, off-road, commute, race, whatever in this truck. It's my daily. It has over 160k. Only thing I do is I only drive in M5. Keeps it out of v4 mode. Did a level, add a leaf, new shocks, and not one issue aside from the A/C. I was out of warranty for that one unfortunately, but I needed it! I did also upgrade the brake rotors and pads to a heavy duty set. I've done tires, plugs, wires, air filters, but that's about it. I have been extremely confident towing and hauling with this truck. I've confidently towed near its max on quite a few occasions. I also have a 11 6.0 HD and 07 8.1. I will use those when I have to haul heavy. When towing I opt for my 1500. Probably because the other two are more work truck trims and the 15 is more comfortable. Either way it's my daily and I absolutely love it. Next truck is a 2021 sierra HD AT4 6.6 gas. The 15 will then go to one of my guys and continue to roll the mileage. I want this one to hit 300k! I prefer the gas motors as I don't need a diesel. I want one... Just don't tow heavy enough to need or benefit at this point. Down the road if a travel trailer is a possibility, or if we go with a bigger custom homeshow exhibit then I'll obviously have to adjust. I'm closing, go for a 15 max tow 5.3 or 6.2 and you'll be fine. It's been a perfect problem free truck. Interior still looks new too. No tears or worn areas of seats. Good luck!

  4. That's awesome!! Great work!
  5. I'm not following why your fob would be better off inside your truck while it's parked. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. 2019 Wiper Blades

    Maybe 2015 was the good year for wipers haha. I have my originals and 165k of use and they are still great. Northeast so they get their use!

    Welcome Jeff. Looking forward to the build! Already have it started! Post some of the 4runner too! I'd venture to the site, but I know I'll become intrigued and spend the night browsing haha. Anyway, enjoy the endless capabilities of a truck. I've clocked over 160k on my 15 Sierra. I'm sure your new truck is built at least a little better. Maintain it, drive it like you stole it, and repeat. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. AT4 Wheel Selection

    If you plan to go off road, opt for 18s, more sidewall rubber
  9. Allison 10-speed

    Doubt it. Not certain, but only time they used an Allison with a gas motor was with the 8.1L. I have an 07 8.L truck with the Allison 6spd mated to it. I've been under a few 6.0l HDs and never saw an Allison so that's what I'm basing it off. Just tried a search to see what others but no information that descriptive was found.

  10. AT4 HD

    Would be nice if it was anything other than appearance only. 1500s get 2" lift with factory level. HDs it's just an off road appearance package. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. Allison 10-speed

    Wouldn't be surprised as they already share the current light duty 10 spd. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Mirrors still looks like shit. Now the cab and std bed look unporportional like a crew cab short bed 1500. I do like it better than the Silverado and I'll def consider it, but I'm really liking the Ford HDs overall. Who am I kidding... Last 5 trucks have been high mile achieving, no problem having GM trucks! They'll grow on all of us! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. I prefer the look and functionality of the standard bed. I was so happy to learn they added the std box length to the 14+ 1500s. Had a 07 crew short box with 8"lift and 35s. I hated the look and lack of space of the short bed. I use my bed a lot so the extra is necessary for me. I understand not everyone needs it. I just dislike the proportion of a crew cab and short bed. Looks off. Just my opinion. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  15. engine stop start

    Thanks, but she won't let me. She swears it saves fuel. To me it causes premature wear, starter burn out, and waste fuel like mentioned above. I think it's a gimmick feature to satisfy CAFE and EPA. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
