  1. What this guy said ^. On a related note I’d have a hard time deciding between the 6.2 gas and 3.0 diesel. They are the same up charge. I love my 6.2 but I don’t have a long commute so the premium gas tax doesn’t bother me. If I was putting on a lot of miles then I’d go diesel for mpg.
  2. 285/70/17 approx 32.8” BFG KO2 Bilstein 5100 raised front 1.85” from stock. 1 notch down from max lift on 5100 Very little rub at full lock on upper control arm. could go to a 34” with some fender liner rub or just tie it back.
  3. Laundry detergent cap works great for me. A loose fit. I could cut it down so it fits tightly but it’s never moved around since closed fuel door keeps it in place.
  4. Very nice setup. Premium camper + Premium Truck
  5. Won’t fit in my garage either but it has a nice shady spot in the driveway. I really wanted the 6’6” bed and crew cab. Kills me it’s outside but I keep the bird poop off, bi weekly washes, etc. Looking for a 22’ carport to shelter from the occasional once every 10 year hail storm. The T1xx are even longer and even a crew shortbed wouldn’t fit in a 228” 19’ garage. I really like the looks of the T1XX GMC HD. Just don’t need that much truck. When they add the 10 speed to the 6.6 gas I’ll have to take a long test drive.
  6. Thanks! Trailer is a 7x14 enclosed with rear ramp door. My Honda pioneer 1000-5 just barely fits due to height of 76” I cut in 3 double pane camper windows I bought off eBay and the trailer came with the camper door. It’s my lightweight toy hauler and camper without amenities. Lol better than a tent 🏕 1400lbs trailer weight empty 1700lbs 2017 Honda pioneer 1000-5 3100lbs total without camping gear.
  7. 2009 GMT900 17” wheels on my 2018. One set of stick on wheel weights fit in front with just barely enough clearance for caliper. Rear there is plenty of room between caliper and 17” wheel.
  8. That’s a fair price for just wheels. That is a very common wheel design. FYI these will fit 1988 - 2018 6 lug Chevrolet GMC Truck, SUV, Van, etc. GMT400 1988 - 1999 GMT800 1999 - 2007 GMT900 2007 - 2013 K2XX 2014 - 2018
  9. Thanks for the detailed reply. Crazy what issues can creep up with a weak battery on these trucks.
  10. I don’t miss my 2018 K2xx because I still own it! It’s paid off, the hard to find (in my area) crew cab standard bed max tow 4wd 6.2 with Denali cluster. The late build K2xx options like Automatic HID headlights, automatic low speed braking and lane keep assist. 1900lb payload and 11,700lb tow rating is way more than enough for me currently. Tows my 4klb enclosed trailer with UTV like it’s barely there. Only has 12k miles. Been pretty much problem free. Bumper to bumper warranty is up March 2021. I plan on keeping it unless it gives me major problems or the next redesign is amazing or has something I can’t live (want) without. When GM finally adds Super cruise and an interior redesign it *may* entice me to trade in. Definitely something to be said about a paid off problem free truck.

  12. I’m not excited to replace mine when the time comes. I will prob go for a Walmart / sams AGM. Maybe north star if I feel like spending that much. Has optima improved since the mid 2000’s? I know when they moved production out of the USA people complained the batteries weren’t as good and didn’t last as long. What model and brand of replacement battery did you install? Any odd behavior with dying battery or it just wouldn’t start?
  13. 6-speed or 8-speed? If it is the 8-speed a fluid exchange may help as the factory fill fluid is hydroscopic and slowly absorbs water which will cause torque converter issues.
  14. My 2018 has a piece of dirt or flake in the paint but it’s where the anti chip paint is on rocker panel. I can live with that vs taking it in and hope they don’t overspray my door or scratch good paint. One thing I don’t like on K2xx and t1xx is the new door design with the rocker exposed. You now see the rocker where people drug their foot getting in and out which makes minor scuffs and scratches. The older design had the door cover this area so you only see it when doors open. 3M clear bra won’t stick to the anti chip paint. I constantly remind my family to not step on the paint! the the plastic door sill and then the ground.
