  1. I wish I could say I notice a difference, but honestly I don't. I do feel like the rear Bilsteins are a little firm. Which is strange...I had Bilstein 5100s on all four corners of my 2018 Silverado and the ride improvement was very noticeable. It was softer on the small bumps but firm and "planted". That's what I was hoping for.
  2. Installed Fox 2.0 coilovers, Rough Country upper control arms, Bilstein 5100 rear shocks and alignment. FYI the Fox shocks are supposed to be factory height for Trail Boss / AT4 but they gave 1" lift...perfect actually.
  3. Ugghh, then on the flip side they can be militant about oil with warranty claims. I just saw a major claim denied recently due to use of non-factory oil. I own a high volume shop, we do oil changes and I even stock the same exact bulk Dexos 0w20 that the dealerships here use from the same distributor. It is our duty to make sure our customers are complying with their manufacturer's recommendations especially when they're warrantied. Yet because of incompetent people and poor processes at the dealers I feel like I have to change my own oil. I do it using AC Delco filters and AC Delco oil that I purchase from the dealership (the one I get warranty work done at) on account. I take the dealer invoice, complete with part numbers and quantities, plus an invoice from my shop time-stamped and dated including mileage and oil life percentage and staple the filter box top to it all. Come at me with a warranty denial! Actually had a lifter drop in my wife's '17 Tahoe and they asked for oil change records, I texted a picture of my binder with one example and that was that.
  4. I think so. They had ordered three arrival blue, two just like this and one 5.3L. So there is a twin, but I think we're probably the only arrival blue 6.2 Trail Bosses out there right now.
  5. Yes no problem. I have had a 2018 Sierra that was plagued with the highway vibration that couldn't be resolved. A 2018 Silverado that was perfect but got wrecked by an a-hole. A 2019 Trail Boss that had lots of problems but I loved it anyways...and now a 2020 Trail Boss that didn't leave the lot with 14 miles before a check engine light. And I'll buy another one. My tolerance is high though, and I'm a GM fan I guess for what that's worth. I'm the guy who replaced his rear slider with solid glass DIY, and I'd do that again anytime over buying a Ford or Dodge and hoping they don't have any problems. I think people believe GM's quality control is poor, which it *could* be, but my opinion and experience in the industry as a shop owner is that technology is outpacing the ability to service it on the backed for ALL new cars. This isn't limited to GM.
  6. They do make pedal response feel great, no doubt. Be aware though, GM issued TSB #13-08-116-001E: AFTERMARKET ALDL OR DLC INTERFACE DEVICES CAUSING MULTIPLE ISSUES. Basically is states that if any aftermarket ALDL connector device is installed and causes problems or is detected at the dealership then it will be entered into your warranty as "suspected tampering" IE VOIDED WARRANTY. Can this happen? Absolutely. Recently bought my wife a 2017 Tahoe with low miles, it went in to limp mode a week or so after we bought it and left my wife and kids stuck. I brought it to my shop and discovered it had a pedal commander (which I was unaware of) that had caused communication issues. Fortunately the fix for me was simply to remove it, and clear the codes. Had it been ran through the dealer, there would be a risk of voided warranty. Also, I had a Hypertech on my 2019 Silverado for tire size correction. I had intermittent communication failures that almost mirrored the description in the TSB perfectly, which left me stranded three times. After removing the device, truck is back to normal. Again, had that made it to the dealership, my truck would be flagged for suspected tampering. I don't like it, t just making ya'll aware. I am batting 0/2 with ALDL devices.
  7. I did not want them and I don't like them functionally. They'll get sold soon as I get some AMP power steps. I also didn't want a sunroof, those two items alone cost me an extra $2000 but I wanted arrival blue so be it.
  8. Sold my '19 Trail Boss LT for this Arrival Blue '20 Trail Boss LT w/ 6.2L.
  9. I have a set sitting here waiting for install, got them in April off Ebay.
  10. I have a set, they're sitting in my office waiting for install. They look like decent quality. They use Eibach springs.
  11. RadoPhan, The solid window is just plain glass squished onto the body with a thick bead of urethane, like a windshield. The slider has a thin plastic frame permanently adhered to the glass (see photos).
  12. Trail Boss 5.3. 23,000 miles 14.7 mpg average. The average over time is the only thing that matters if you're comparing. It doesn't matter if someone says they got 24mpg on a trip to grandma's last week!
  13. No sir, it has a plastic frame that is bonded to the glass, it's very thin and cracked in two places (that's the root of the problem). It's garbage or I would have fixed and re-used.
