    Head Line is FAKE NEWS GM / GMC trys hard to offer something different and at the same time ONLY offers a few minor changes that add up to nonsense - not impressed at all - just a loaded SLT lifted Z71 with some blacked out snap ons, and bigger tires. Now if you lift your 1500 yourself will it still void your warranty ? Backwards Old School thinking company like when Ford offered any color you want as long as it's Black ...
  6. FYI - I have not tried it, yet ! but there are 18,000 views, so I'm not alone on this ...
  7. My 15 Sierra HD SLT Head Light adjuster (Phillips Head) just spins free with no effect. Can I remove the Head Light Unit and get into it one way other another to access the threaded rod ? The light is now aiming at full up and is not responding to the screw turning ... I just tried to re-adjust after a bulb replacement and got no response from the screw ... Thx
  8. As most here know - Stabiltrac will definitely save the truck from fish tailing out sideways into what ever happens to be there, especially when the tires are over spun OR the pavement is wet, sand, snow, ice ... I leave mine on (off is cool cool if you want to go sideways ...) (See Youtube burnout failures) Traction control is just related to rear tires slipping - allows you to do as you please wheel spinning wise (up to a point) (and until you fishtail sideways / if stabiltrac is on it will stop the sideway slide and cut down on the spinning as well) many rookies turn BOTH off to do burnouts and then overspin the rear tires to the point that when the sideways slip takes over there's no recovery to driving straight again, because the tires are spinning so fast they just continue spinning (even when you let off the gas) with way too much spinning momentum, and the uncontrolled side slide is the result ...

    Any new news about your truck issue ? The Detroit automaker, which lost $3.9 billion last year, announced profit-sharing as part of its full 2017 earnings report. Before taxes, GM made $12.8 billion on $145.6 billion in revenue. Its pre-tax profits in North America totaled $11.9 billion, and that’s the figure profit-sharing is based on. http://www.detroitnews.com/story/business/autos/general-motors/2018/02/06/gm-profit-share/110146262/
  10. What are your feelings about a console shifter ? I like the look of the "other" trucks with it. Definitely has a more sporty look (to me). My current SLT already has the huge console without a shifter available ... Would plowing snow be easier or more difficult ? D to R and R to D ... My friend said it would just waste more space but that space usually just has some junk stored there anyway +- Any idea why GM does not offer it ? I wonder if some people bought the "other" truck because of the shifter location (for looks or use or ...) ? Would you prefer a console shifter over the column shifter ? I would try / buy it if they offered it.

    FWIW - my 15 HD SLT 6.0 had the original headlight bulbs replaced under a silent campaign for the issue of LACK of lightbeam width, new bulbs are only slightly better (dealer said the new bulbs required the truck computer to be re-flashed) ... I never have had the issue you have

    sounds like GM just BSing - either that style light has that characteristic or it doesn't -- my 2015 HD SLT has crappy light beam width but NOT a bouncing motion

    ODD - no other manufacturers have his issue ?

    FWIW - one major change the manufacturer SHOULD ALWAYS have to do when the vehicle is on the assembly line: the assembly worker should be required to put a sticker on the part / issue that is not right ! (I understand the line is moving and only so much time can be allowed so if it is not correct it just moves on by and gets forgot about) {like the part was not fitting or the fluid ran out} As I understand it the dealer is responsible to correct any deficiencies on a new vehicle, but the Dealer Prep is TOTALLY LACKING ! I've bought 4 NEW GM Trucks and 3 had assembly issues that "I" had to find: 1: No refrigerant in the AC (I brought the truck back in spring (winter purchase) and after it was filled it was fine forever) 2: Passenger Electric window was not right, upon dissemble a connector was missing 3: Rear Differential was less than 1/2 full of fluid - my local service guy discovered it at 1st oil change I'm amazed that the assembly line and dealer both DON'T DO THEIR JOB RIGHT - buyer beware It's getting to the point where it be best to take the NEW vehicle to a private service garage to be checked out prior to buying !!!
