Best drive so far was a few weeks ago, when I got over 26 mpg for a 50 mile average around Birmingham/Tuscaloosa, with speeds in the 55-65 mph range. 2019 GMC 1500 SLT X31 5.3/8spd/3.23. I recently got in the 25's for a 50 mile average on the Georgia coast, using ethanol-free gas. Once I topped up with 10% ethanol blend, MPG's dropped to the 18 range.
Grab handles? Does your truck have two grab handles, or are you referring to the stake pockets? If I read the initial question right, the OP wasn't asking about interference with the rear stake pockets, but the folding grab bar/grab handle on the driver's side of the rear of the bed.
2019 Sierra 1500 X31 crew cab here, and I have noticed a vibration transmitted thru the bottom of the seat in mine. 1000 miles on it, build date of May 2019. The steering wheel doesn't shake, so I'm assuming it's something from the transmission, drive shaft, rear end, or rear tires. I have a 2011 GMC Sierra 4wd Ext Cab that has 185k miles on it, and no shake whatsoever. I saw the TSB posted earlier in this thread and saw that the cutoff was for trucks with a March 2019 date of manufacture. I wonder if the problem I'm having is the trans fluid, or something else...will investigate.

Which are you saying is useless in the South - AWD or 4WD?
You can make some interesting political and cultural observations by comparing the relative percentages of registered 4WD vehicles to AWD vehicles.
Recently upgraded to a 2019 GMC Sierra SLT with the X31 package. Love the truck, but coming from a 2011 Sierra WT, the amount of chrome on the SLT is a little unsettling to me! Has anybody on here bought the GM Parts accessory grille that has the body-color surround (my truck is Summit White, one of the available color-matched options) and simple, black, horizontal bars in the middle? Wondering how it would look with all the other chrome on the vehicle, as well as how difficult it will be to do the swap. FYI, this is PN 84320555
Employee benefits. You work, you get benefits. That’s how it works. If you don’t work, why would you expect to get benefits?
Been wondering the same thing myself! Following for responses....
