Nick The Great replied to scott.moody.9401's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI don't think this worked with my S7 Edge, unless it was plugged in. Just picked up a S10 over the weekend, will have to try this out. Would be handy.
Every so often, I joke with my wife about getting a topper (that's what we call them in the US-Midwest). She is very against it for some reason. She thinks I'm way too young for something like that. Whatever that means.
I won't jump your crap for not measuring/checking the truck length in hte first place. That's been done enough. I feel like my dealer had some sort of 24 hour or 5 day period for things like this. I would think most dealers would be a little understanding, especially if you're talking about getting another vehicle from them. It's not like you're wanting to return this and just walk away.
My experience with GM is that they aren't great on covering stuff under warranty either. I understand that they don't make money if they pay for parts, but I'd be steamed too. At least it sounds like it was a cheap fix?
Nick The Great replied to Donstar's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareI've never really thought about it. Now that you mention it, I feel like it takes a little effort to pull them open, but nothing that's ever annoyed me. And I'm annoyed by LOTS of things in this world. I think I prefer the drawer openings/closings on the Husky over that of my older Craftsman box. There's no resistance whatsoever either way, and it seems odd.
Nick The Great replied to Donstar's topic in Garage & Home, Snow Plowing, Landscaping, & Lawn CareI have the 41" Husky Combo chest, for 2.5 or 3 years now. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-41-in-16-Drawer-Tool-Chest-and-Cabinet-Combo-Black-VRC-4116BK/303499569 It's awesome. Way better than the 26" Craftsman it replaced. Well . . . supplemented. I agree that the short drawers are nice. But I really dig the deep drawers on the bottom. I have circular saws, belt sanders, things like that in them. They had a wider one, but I had a specific spot this thing was going, so I was limited. I'm impressed with the build quality. The steel is heavy, the drawers slide well. Casters are pretty heavy duty. It's not a Snap On or Matco or anything like that. But For the $500 I paid, I'm very happy.
I think the OP needs more serious things to worry about in his life than a 1 psi drop in tire pressure. I don't buy the Nitrogen being much better than regular air either. Though I will say, I bought this truck in April 2017, and I think just now added air a few weeks ago. Didn't touch it last winter, and we had some cold days.
Intro: Finally got my new 2018 Suburban Premier 4x4, Pepperdust, Cocoa/Dune, Adaptive Cruise, 3.42 Gears
Nick The Great replied to S P's topic in 2015-2019 Suburban/Tahoe & Yukon/Yukon DenaliLooks great dude! I have a 2017 Pepperdust Silverado. And like you, wasn't going in there looking for that color. But I really like it. It kinda changes color depending on the weather.
I wish there were a way to turn that off! By the time I'm out of the garage and going, it warns me several blocks too late! And I'm not a moron, so I know if it's cold and precipitous, there could be ice on the road.
I always put sand in my 1999 RCSB 2WD truck. It helped a lot. For the first two winters in my 2007 CCSB 4x4 truck I did also. But one year I didn't get around to it, and I couldn't tell any difference. I put it in Auto when it is snowing or the roads are wet/icy. That seemed to be enough. My 2017 CCSB 4x4 is not nearly as sure footed in the snow, even with Auto 4x4 engaged. I think it's the factory tires. I should replace them, but I'm too cheap. Will probably try the sand this winter to see if it helps.
I don't know about the unlock button. Mine has the programmable seats, with a position 1 & 2 on the door. And a third position meant to go "all the way back" for exiting. My wife's Buick you can tap the buttons and they'll go to their programmed position. My truck you have to hold the button down.
Hell my wife's Buick has it too. I never understand why GM is so different across their brands with stuff like this.
I'm an engineer so I have an embedded hatred of anything marketing and marketing related. But GM's marketing department is really bad. Like inept. This commercial is better than those "real people reacting to cars behind doors" or the "That's a Buick?!?" commercials, but just barely. 8 trim packages??? Stop the presses!!!!!!!!
I want to have the power memory seats be a "one-press" button as well. Why do I have to hold the button down???
Got up to 39.7 MPG on highway from Laughlin, NV to Los Angeles, CA...296.4 miles driving straight...
Nick The Great replied to waltchan's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraAwesome. My first truck had the 4.3 in it, and it was very good on fuel. I'd get over 20 in fair driving conditions. And high teens in bad conditions.
