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.

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.
Nick The Great replied to dquinn313's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingMy 2007 had this issue where I'd be driving and it seemed like I'd lose all electrical for a split second. Then it'd stumble back on, full of lights. Several times the truck would not start until I'd go 'wiggle' the battery cables. The dealership could not ever duplicate this issue, despite the fact it would not start in the service bay until we wiggled the cables. Anywho, after 2 or 3 times they unhooked and checked all battery cable connections. It never did it again after this point; I probably had the truck another 7 or 8 years after that. I'm convinced it was a bad ground that got accidentally fixed during that last service. I stopped going to that dealer, even though it was only 1 mile from my house.
Is there a way to make the power seats a single press button, rather than having to hold it down? Like my other GM vehicle or any other one on the market? I'd pay a few bucks for that.
