That's certainly true, and worth remembering. I, like many people I assume, have never ordered a vehicle, though, and when I go vehicle shopping, I'm generally cross shopping from dealer stock at multiple dealerships. I haven't seen one SLT or higher-spec Sierra in my cross-shopping where dealers ordered the standard tailgate. For folks like me, these options are good to have, and I'm glad to see the aftermarket has responded. My truck rarely has the hitch in the receiver, but even I think GM should have included a feature like the tailgatefix.com as standard if you get the MultiPro gate.
Thanks for posting, Gary! That’s exactly the info I was looking for. I was wondering, if I bought them, which adjustment step would be best to set the clip at. My Sierra X31 crew cab is exactly 2” lower in front than In back. I was conflicted between the third and fourth settings. If you have a Z71 crew cab, I assume your suspension is identical to mine. The third notch sounds like the ticket to avoid a front end-high situation.
Does anybody have experience with the Eibach ride-height adjustable front leveling shocks for our trucks? I had been waiting on Bilstein 5100's, but these caught my eye... https://eibach.com/us/i-12054-pro-truck-sport-shock-ride-height-adjustable-single-front.html Appear to be the same concept as the Bilsteins I had on my 2011 GMC. Note: I found a few threads in the 2014-2018 forum, and I found where some 2019-20 T1 owners have used Eibachs, but I haven't found where any T1 owners have used the Eibach ride-height adjustables... Thanks.
Can anybody who has had the GM 2-inch lift installed confirm whether the dealer was able to/actually did recalibrate the truck's computer to account for a larger tire size? If so, can they recalibrate for any tire size, or just for a larger factory-available tire size? Thanks in advance.
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.
