I received the Second-Row Interlocking Floor Liner for Christmas and just finished trimming and installing them. After installing them I don't see much of an advantage for not cutting off the excess, as trimming them at the cut line still allows a few inches to slip under the front and end lip of the storage box. The storage box is formed with a bottom so if something in it should leak, it would be contained in the box and not get to the carpet. I suppose if you were hauling something bigger and/or dirty/greasy as the OP needed to do and required removal of the storage box then the added length would give your carpet a few more inches of added protection. But for me, if I need to haul something bigger and/or dirty, I'll put it in the cargo bed and tarp it if needed. I doubt I'll ever remove the storage box. So far the only "Con's" I can see are: They could have given better installation instructions, ie; They could have said you needed to slip them under the lip of the storage box. I had gotten it in my mind the reason for cutting the mat was so that cut lip of the mat would fit flush with the front of the storage box and I was ready to cut a few more inches off to make them fit that way. Good thing I stepped back and took a closer look and realized the mat lip needed to go under the storage box lip! With the back edge of the mat under the lip of the storage box I don't think it will be as easy to remove for cleaning as I had hoped they would be, it's doable, but not real easy. But, they do look like they'll be fairly easy to clean with a damp cloth with them left in place. All in all, I like the mats, they're very nice looking and a precise fit.
I'm not sure the trucks User Profiles are tied to OnStar service. I just called them to make sure and rule out OnStar since it was right at the time for it to be changing over from the free trial to the paid subscription service when my profile was removed. Maybe someone that doesn't have an OnStar subscription can chime in and tell us if their User Profiles still work without OnStar.
I was beginning to think I was "just plain special" for having mine deleted since it took 5 days for anyone else to post about it happening to them too! I guess on the plus side of me having to setup a new profile is, before my profile was wiped I had been having problems with my "Messages" app not loading my messages. About 6 out of 10 times they wouldn't load and would say I needed to adjust the permissions in my phone to allow them to load, but the next time I'd start my truck they'd load just fine...without me having done anything to my phone permissions. Since making my new profile and re-downloading the Messages app they load every time now.
I was driving down the street the other day, fat dumb and happy, when I noticed a message pop up on the infotainment screen. I only caught a few of the words, “my name” and I think it said“User Account removed” and then the message disappeared. There was more to the message but since I was driving in heavy traffic I could not read it and couldn't tell what I was being removed from. I knew my SiriusXM trial period was ending and I didn't renew it so thought it might have been it, no big deal. I continued on to my destination and parked. When I came out later and started the pickup I noticed things on the screen were different...my messages icon was gone from the screen, the apple carplay icon I had moved off the home screen was back, also all of the presets for my favorite radio stations were gone. I ended up having to make me a new user profile for the pickup, talk about a pain in the ass...I had just got things setup and adjusted to my liking too!! So far everything seems to be working fine again! [fingers crossed]
Mine says something similar for my 2019. Unfortunately our state law says you have to carry chains when traveling over the passes...whether they are required at the time or not, and if they check you and you don't have any it's a pretty big ticket. I've been looking for "alternative traction devices".
Thanks MikeNH! Here's what I found on the Upfitter website for Afterblow, and I can see why they don't enable it by default, people would be complaining about the blower motor running after they've shut off their vehicle: Afterblow Afterblow is a feature that dries the evaporator core by operating the blower motor after the engine is turned OFF. This reduces the amount of microbial growth that can create undesirable odors. The vehicle does not come equipped with the afterblow feature turned ON. If the afterblow feature is required due to an odor concern, it must be enabled using the scan tool Afterblow configuration function. After the HVAC control module has been programmed for afterblow, the following conditions must be met for afterblow to operate: • The engine has been turned OFF for at least 30 minutes. • The ambient air temperature is at least 21°C (70°F). • The A/C compressor operated for more than 2 minutes before shut down. • The system voltage is at least 12 volts. Once the above conditions have been met, the blower motor will perform the following sequence up to 5 times. This could last up to an hour: 1. The blower motor will be OFF for 7 – 11 minutes. 2. The blower motor will RUN for 25 – 30 seconds.

RAYS B4U replied to Big E in TX's topic in 2019 Silverado & Sierra ModsI haven't decided whether or not I'll get different wheels, but I'm very interested in seeing what sizes these are going to be available in and cost. They are supposed to be out in Jan 2019.
I made a 275 mi round trip a few weeks ago and received 23.7 mpg, figured the old way, total miles divided by number of gallons used. My High Country has the 6.2 and is showroom stock. Fuel used was non-ethanol, 92 octane, route was mostly flat, minimal traffic, no full throttle passing blasts, cruise control set at 63. I was quite pleased since the best I ever received in my old 2003 Silverado SS was right at 19 mpg.
