  1. What have you towed with it? I have a 20' hybrid camper. The 5.3 is fine, but looking to go a little bigger. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. Love the AT4 and RST Silverado..I definitely want the 6.2 liter. I have a 2012 with the 5.3. Gorgeous looking truck. Hope you get years of pain free service from it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Update: Had the oil changed last week, oil pressure has returned to normal at start up and normal driving. Weirdest thing... my buddy said everything looked normal. Guess I have to drive it a few more years...
  4. Yeah, I have to have a 4x4, prefer the Z71. Looks like RST for me...when I get to that point. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the info guys. I think that settles it for me. I want the 6.2 next time.. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. So. This morning I was taking my trash to recycling and was closing the trusty Undercover hard tonneau cover on my truck. After 8 years of solid service, the front hinge on the drivers side pulled through all of the rivets and snapped off. Well, son of a .... So, this was the first truck I have owned with a bed cover and I really enjoy the feature. My only complaint with the hard cover is if I had something taller than the bed, I had to secure the top half closed. I think in replacement I am wanting a soft roll up style, maybe a tri-flip type. What kind have you guys used and are you happy? One thing I can say, with the type I had it was secure and 100% dry water proof. I realize the soft rollup type aren't 100% secure and waterproof. I can deal with that... Tell me what you have, why you love/hate it. Thanks! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. Is there a GMC Sierra version of the RST? I like the Silverado, but love the new Sierra. I am eyeballing an RST with the 6.2, maybe in a few years, after all the leaky windows are fixed and the new interior design. Is there GMC version? I like the AT4 too. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. I paid more attention to it this morning. Start up oil pressure is normal, driving at interstate speed it reads about 10 psi below where it normally does. Idle pressure is normal too.
  9. 2012 Silverado, 5.3, 159,000 miles. Driving to work this morning, I always do an occasional gaze at my gauges. Noticed my oil pressure was down. I was cruising on interstate, and it's usually just a tick below 40.. it was halfway between 40 and the next mark down. Turned the radio down, no odd noises, nobody knocking to get out. I gave it some gas, rpm's went up, oil pressure went up slightly. Pulled off at my exit, came to a stop at the bottom of the ramp, gauge went down just a little below where it is at idle. Drove fine, no issues. Parked it at work and came back out about an hour later. Checked the oil level (yes, I do understand oil pressure and oil level are not necessarily related). Down about 1 quart, where it usually falls before I get an oil change. I did notice it has been leaking a bit, I think it's a rear main seal. Ugh... Need to try and swing by the dealership for an oil change tomorrow or Wednesday, my buddy is a service tech where I go. He's going to investigate further. Happy New Year.. said no one ever.
  10. You are correct. Not sure why I thought they were irs. Just coil springs. My bad...please ignore me... Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Ram trucks are offered with IRS Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Perfectly functional interior does not translate to a manufacturer that's wants to lead the truck segment. The GM interiors have always lacked the nicer finishes. My 2012 dash has more damn cracks than the Grand Canyon. I apply 303 protection every couple of weeks, but has UV protection. Always use a sun shield in the windshield when parked outside. The newer interiors (2016 and up) look " better" but still a long way to go. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. I noticed you said east Tennessee, I live in Knoxville. I have had exhaust done twice on my old F150 by Mighty Muffler on Western Ave. Not sure who you have a quote from. I was very happy with the work they did.. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. That's not good wear at all..I might have to search for another tire. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
