  1. I am at 107k on my 14, so far I have had none of this issue. I hope this is one that does not cost me a wreck!!
  2. I have felt the bead of sealant before but I have never actually laid eyes on it. I wash my wheel wells out every time I wash my truck and use my fingers to chase as much dirt and grime out. I'll have to look for that when the weather warms up again.
  3. I bought mine with just a tick over 40k on it. I bought the extended 100k warranty and it worked out for me also. Radiator and condenser fixed on mine.
  4. Hard to beat driving the company car. I am hoping to keep my truck around another 5 or so years. So driving something else is saving the truck for later.
  5. How many miles are you at now? I am guessing you have gained quite a few more, hopefully trouble free miles. Still in the 107k range but getting close to 108k.
  6. You can see my mpg in my sig. I use the aCar app to track mileage. This is my lifetime average. My truck originally came from the factory with 20's according to the options list. When I bought the truck it had 17's on it. I have since put a set of factory 20's back on it. The 20's have knocked the mileage down some. I drive 80+ miles round trip to work and recently bought a Honda CRZ for $3700 to drive back and forth. My truck only gets in town use for the last 6 months and that really has put a hit on my mpg. I have recorded my worst mpg in my truck in the last 6 months just driving in town.
  7. How much for the U-bolts minus the shipping? I can't see a price on their website. Interesting fix.
  8. 2019 Four cylinder

    The MPG numbers are in my sig for my 2014 5.3 2wd. Seems I am pretty close to the 4 banger MPG already. Wonder why they did not turbo the V6?
  9. Not on my 2014 that I know of.
  10. I hope you are wrong. I do however keep up with the maintenance. My 14 has had the condenser and radiator replaced under warranty. I could have done both of those items if I had not had warranty. I'm not too worried about it giving me problems. I have been one that trades pretty regularly. This one I hope lasts me another 5 years.
  11. I traded my 02 Z06 for an 07 Sierra. My Z had about 75k miles on it and had been driven every day, rain, sleet, snow, whatever. Glad to hear the truck is serving you well. The truck was a much better ride for a long commute which is what I was doing at the time of the trade. I did take a hit on gas mileage going from the Z to a truck. I too am looking forward to hearing some 200k mile stories. I think if anyone on here can do it based on their maintenance practices, FL355 is going to be the one to do. He has some strong maintenance practices.
  12. I always reach up there and turn them to off when I start the truck. I guess it keeps that from happening too. I just did it because I don't like the DRL's. There is a write up somewhere that explains how to remove the spring from the Auto on headlight switch so that it stays in the off position when you put it there.
  13. What kind of issues did you notice when the trans started to go? I change about 1 gallon of fluid every 15k miles. Filter was changed at 65k or so. Currently around 107k miles and trans seems great.
  14. Sounds like you did a good thing by getting in there and looking at everything while you were in there. When I changed the struts and upper control arms, I made sure everything was tightened also. I guess it couldn't hurt to take a look at everything each oil change. However, I didn't mark anything. Good idea. Next oil change, I will do the same. The good part about the Moog stuff, you get grease fittings!!
