  1. And with Ram's (Chrysler's) reputation for high quality electrics in their vehicles, this will probably happen sooner rather than later. With all the hype in the video about the twist ditch, once the G80 was engaged there was no drama. Not sure I saw one truck perform better than the other as far as ability to get out of the situation. The sway bar disconnect on the Ram gave it obviously better suspension travel, but the GMC crawled right out of its predicament just as easily.
  2. Even worse than the salt in my opinion is the brine (magnesium chloride) they spray and pre-treat with. That stuff is insto-rust on steroids. Does wonders for the car wash business though.
  3. Hey, what are you stressing over road salt for? You live in North Carolina. It doesn't snow in the South does it?....BTW I'm kidding. I know where you live. Remember, I'm two counties over. Different world up here on top of the Blue Ridge huh? I remember few years ago when Appstate was up north playing in the FCS playoffs and it was televised on ESPN. It started snowing after halftime and one of the intelligent commentators said being from the South that it was going to be a big disadvantage for App. The other commentator replied, "It's apparent you've never been to Boone, North Carolina." I would gladly trade our December, January, and February with the flatlanders, but they can keep their June, July and Augusts. Guess we'll get a taste of the white stuff tonight.
  4. The dealer is right, you have the ultra rare "Droopy Grille edition Silverado." Got to love those dealers, the "they all do that." dealers. I can't imagine they can stick to their guns if you push it, and you should push it. I know it's unfair to the good dealers, and there are some, but this is an example of why there is so much talk about stealerships on these boards.
  5. 2019 RST 4x4 Crew built in Silao MX with SU4 front axle. Build date 3/14/19 About 1K miles and no problems yet.....knock on wood.
  6. Yeah if you live close enough to Bonmin that would be worth a try, but in my case I'm a good 850 miles away, so the drive with the threat of having to walk wouldn't make sense. That would be a heck of a road trip to come home empty handed.
  7. I just recently bought from Modern in Winston-Salem. They were very aggressive on price and won my business this time. In the past I have priced with Randy Marion as well, and at least in my experience, I would have to agree with jlong. They had tons of add on's and made what appeared to be a good deal not so good in the end. As far as Bonmin in Florida is concerned, look at their online reviews. No personal experience, but their reputation for schemes is well commented on when reading on Google, Cars.com, etc. reviews.
  8. Add me to the list who have done this mod. Totally gives the truck a different look. I used the domed gloss black from BD. Instead of ordering on Amazon, I ordered directly from the company. They were a little less expensive, plus I think the letters on Amazon are the flat ones. Also, a heads up in case you decide to do this. The "H" and the "O" are cut so they only fit one way. May sure you dry fit them before you stick everything down.
  9. Yeah, 5.3-8 speed. At that point it was still running on whatever the dealer put in when delivered, but I had topped it off before I left with some BP 87.
  10. So had to do the dad thing and go move some things for my son who is a sophomore in college. Drive was 90% at 67 to 72 mph. Last 15 miles or so was a 55 mph zone (when pic was taken) entering Raleigh. I always take it easy there as lots of blue potential blue lights are always near. Tough to beat these GM V8's on mpg in the real world; she's not even broken in with less than 400 miles.
  11. Not the case with any leasing company I've dealt with. GAP is built into the lease. It is true that any down payment you put into a lease would be lost if you drove it off the lot and totaled it. That is the reason to put as little as possible ($0) down on a lease. On the other hand, if you buy, finance and don't pay extra for GAP you can be on the hook for the difference in what you owe vs the insurance value of the vehicle if you total it early on in a purchase contract. As stated your circumstances dictate which is a better option for you personally.
  12. Thanks everybody. Big change from the previous GMC in style and look. Nice to be wearing the bowtie again.
  13. Lease was coming up on my 2017 GMC and the deals were too good over the Labor Day Holiday......so. I came home with a new truck. I bought this about a week ago, but have been so busy I hadn't had the opportunity to take any pix. Been here way too long to post about a new truck and not have pix so better late than never.
