I don't want to be a downer but Ford guys were initially dealing with a lot of rear window leaks for this gen of 1/2 tons (actually more specifically 2018 models). Some customers were dealing with the 5.0 oil consumption and window leak (buying a model that had been sitting on the lot got mold and all that). Best of luck, start checking it once a month then once a quarter etc. you should feel good after a while.
Is the highway vibration still an issue with the late model K2s? I know not all trucks had it, but curious whether the out of balance driveshaft, u joints, etc were sorted out for 2017+? I suspect there will be some very good deals on 2019 K2s soon if not already.
Interested to see how it comes out! I like the monochrome look myself, but ltz forces you into a lot of chrome. the mirror caps and handles seem to be easy fixes and ~300 bucks painted on ebay but everything else seems pretty pricey. Did your dealer consider swapping some of the stuff off a regular z71 lt? some dealers like to chrome up trucks...
Hello to a fellow Buffalonian...Uncle sam decided I need to live on the west coast now but originally from there. What fix did they apply for the stuck in 4wd issue? Did they just do programming? Or tell you to switch it back to 2hi before turning it off every time (idiotic 'fix' if i ever heard one, lots of folks driving all these gm trucks with autotrack and we all have left it in 4auto most of the winter...)
Hopefully it is fixed soon. Having the autotrac available across mid level trim is a big selling point for gm where I grew up (snow country). Ford now offers it only in lariat and above. Dodge started offering it (same t case as gm) in their big horn models and up a while back. It is truly disappointing there is no fix, millions of gmt800 and 900 trucks have been sold with this system and none exhibit this problem. Please keep us updated!
If you find out if there is a fix please let us know. the auto 4wd is one of the major factors in my next vehicle and gm has had it for ages, there is not reason you should have to put it on 2hi or 4hi to turn it off. In many parts of the country you leave auto 4wd on almost all winter...I don't want to have to look at a ford lariat (the xlt doesn't have this option) just because gm has some idiotic software glitches.
Take it in! Get a loaner till they fix it. The guys over at the Ford forums have been complaining about a/c for ages on the 2009-2014 trucks...its weird because all the older fords I've been in had ICE cold a/c's as do all of the chevy work trucks I have driven.
Most new transmissions have a dealer only tool. Even if you get the dipstick, you will need the temp map to tell your where the fluid level should be at what temp. Not that this is a good thing but it is the way they are going...
