    I like it! Have any full truck pics?
  2. I just drove 900 miles in 2 days as a passenger and a driver 50/50 with my dad's 5.3/8spd w / 15K on it now. I was very happy with it. He's 65 and likes the chrome stuff. That I hate, buuut it's not my truck and he loves it. I felt all shifts were perfect throughout the rpm range. I have a higher mileage 15' 5.3/6spd and more on a 07' 5.3/4spd. They had a few ckunks and "twitches" along the way but are holding up to more than normal abuse. I'm closing, get whatever truck you can afford more comfortably over all. One that you won't regret. It's your decision! You're driving it!
  3. Have to start with the easy questions first, but are you in 4wd on dry pavement? How are the cv angles stock on these things?
  4. You'll be fine. I rip everything I own under full power after about 50-100 miles. Trucks and motorcycles. This is my 5th gm over 150k with zero problems. You'll be fine.
  5. Tailgate latch

    Could still shoot some silicone grease on the strike bolts and into the tailgate latches at the ends. Can't hurt
  6. The 15, but 90k with 35s on the 07 and bearings never failed. 04 Colorado with 87k and 33s and they remained tight then too. That truck did not have an easy life. This picture was the first day I had it. Temporary tag was submerged once I pulled through that mess. As of this weekend everything in the front end of the 15 was silent. I started hearing some chatter/popping similar to the sound of a bad strut or shock. Thought, "well, those lasted longer than I expected." Took a quick look and saw the my drive side sway bar end link sheared off at the control arm. Picked up a new one yesterday and will install today. Back in business. 200k here I come!

  7. I miss my 07 4spd lol. After 180k I've learned the 6spd and can control it/work with is well but I want LESS gears! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  9. 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!
  10. 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!

  11. That's awesome!! Great work!
  12. 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
  13. 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
