I ordered a Silverado 2500HD LT with Midnight Package, All Star, CP II, Leather, Z-71 packages, and several other options. It hadn't been picked up by GM yet. I find out, this morning, midnight edition with Z-71 is now unavailable, along with several options. Base price also went up a thou again (increased twice in a month for $2K total). Comparing my previous build to new build, there's 2 less packages, $500 less in options, for approx $4,000 less in options and packages. But, now the total NET price is a thousand more on the build sheet than before (a $5K swing)! WTH is going on with GM??
JR, What's involved with changing out the front springs?
Haven't had a "non"metallic black Chevy in 10+ years. To get an available 2022 Chevy 2500 gasser, in Mosaic Black Metallic, on a lot right now I would have to give up at least one of my 5 most important options. I can get all I want on the truck if I accept the regular Black paint job. Back in the day, plain black would fade fast and show swirl marks and scratches easily. This truck will be for the duration. How is the new Black Chevy truck paint holding up (versus Mosaic)? Does anyone have a definite preference one way or another? I have a 2500 LT in Mosaic Black Metallic with all my desired options on order with a dealer (GM hasnt picked up the order yet). But, who knows how long that will take.
Lots of good info from you guys. The ole back is hurting worse and every bit will help.
The reason I asked... Here in my area of NE Ohio it's not possible to compare new truck rides. No dealer has even a single 2500. With my current Chevy 2500, with 18" tires, I run 60 psi front/70 psi rear full time and tow a boat in summer and fall. What are the lowest tire pressures i can run during the off-season for the smoother ride?
Much appreciated, MTU.
Had a Bakflip on a 2006 Chevy 1500. Currently have a Diamondback...love it. Three worst things about the bakflip were: leaked like a sieve, covered the back window when opened, and, because it sits below the top of the bedrail there are many things that are too tall to fit in the truck bed...especially large fish coolers.
Looking at buying a 2022 Chevy 2500 LT. Which would you say has the smoother on the road ride... a truck WITH off-road suspension, or, without. 18 or 20 inch tires?
AirForceAngler-- Clear and well stated! Thanks. I'm pulling a boat and looking for a non-turbo, 6+ L motor. I've had 5.3Ls before and don't want that. I'll just go with the 3/4 ton with the 6.6L gas motor. Pricing them out, I can go with the 2500 and roughly the same desired equipment for $4,000 less than the RST. I currently have a 2500 with a 6.0 motor.
New guy here, so, I'm sorry if this has been covered before. Looking at ordering a 2022 Silverado RST with the 6.2L L87 motor. Recommended fuel is 91 octane. If DFM is disabled, would it make sense to use 87 octane fuel? Bottomline...is the 91 octane directed because of the DFM causing cylinders to shut down? The 6.6L gas motors in the 3/4 ton HDs do NOT have DFM and their recommended fuel usage is 87. What say you?
