Please tell me what I am? If your going to say a " long time Chevy fan who has been disappointed since 2013" then you are correct. If you're going with troll then you would be wrong. 

 Also, I am pretty sure I have had this account for awhile but have not posted.

Read through the entire GM fleet order guide. Biggest omissions I’ve noticed so far:

 

1. No adaptive cruise, only “following distance indicator” as part of the “Driver Alert Package II” , not included with “Driver Alert Package I”.

 

2. HUD, 360 Surround Vision cameras and rearview HD camera mirror only available as an option on Denali as part of the CWW Technology Package. N/A on SLT. Pictures online suggest these will be available on the AT4. No mention of the AT4 in the guide.

 

3. No Z71 option. Now called X31 Off Road Package. Possibly only available on the AT4?

 

As others have mentioned, 6.2 + 10spd only available on 4WD versions. 

 

Missing Adaptive cruise is disappointing but not a deal killer for me as I rarely even use regular cruise.  If the AT4 has the CWW tech Package, I’m in.

Yeah I would like to have the adaptive cruise but it’s not a deal breaker. The HD cameras will be nice because the current ones are crap. I really wanted the RST with the 6.2 but I have a HC now with the 6.2 and 2wd. Didn’t really want 4wd but I will still be getting the truck. The 10 spd and lower overall weight will be nice and the truck really didn’t need more power but would of been nice. :)

Don't forget:

1. No Pano Roof Option.  Some have no need, I like them, and the competition offers as an OPTION.

2. No Ventilated Rear Seats - Ram has them coming

3. Lower TQ numbers on the 6.2L - 450 vs. 460 on previous gen.  WTF?  

4. Poor placement of outside mirrors = FUGLY.  Oh wait that was an improvement for visibility...glad I needed this so I can now see objects in my mirrors and out my side windows for the first time EVER.  Really...C,mon GM who do you have in your focus groups?

 

Ohh.,. and the GM adaptive cruise in their trucks and full size SUVs is the biggest POS in the industry so that is one thing I do not want in an option package.  It can be an option for people that want it like I mentioned in bullet 1 but don't force that crap on people.  I got rid of two Yukon Denalis because it was such crap.

 

Sigh.

Just soooo many misses with this truck I cannot understand who their audience is?   Oh and how bout them fender wells on the GMC.  Guess the designers could not make up their minds..."go back to rounded, no everyone like squared, hey I am new here let's incorporate both so we do not offend anybody that way everyone will be happy."  Geez MC.

Chevy dude on YouTube did a video on the new trucks just a day or 2 ago. It seems these early production trucks are going to be current body styles. The info he has said the new body style probably won't hit dealership lots until early 2019. Check out his video for more accurate dates than I can give. I just remember being disappointed with his info. That is for crew cabs. They plant in Mexico isnt supposed to start production until the end of the year.

Sorry... but that's just inaccurate. New body style crew cab trucks will most definitely start being produced in mid July. I'm 100% certain.  He's getting mixed up by the fact that double cab K2XX chassis vehicles will continue production for nearly the rest of the year while T1XX ramps up.

I like the new GM's but I'm glad there are other brands to choose from for customers like yourself who are unhappy with the upgrades.  (I'm sure you would have been even more outraged when GM removed the triangle vent windows and used this location to mount "FUGLY" mirrors.)  It is fine to prefer one brand over another but there are reasons behind any changes or upgrades.

      So some of you are probably aware I had a little "incident" requiring me to replace both hood lift spring hinges and the hood hinge supports on both sides. I'm just wondering what order you would assemble it to prevent any further headaches or injury. 
       
      So far I've marked with a sharpie where the hood hinge supports attach to my hood (three bolts each side) so it'll line up  near where it belongs. 
       
      I was planning on removing the one bolt and nut on each side of the hood near the windshield cowl that holds the hood to the truck. Then having a neighbor help me lift off the hood I will flip it over and install my new hood hinge supports (three bolts each side)
       
      I'm wondering should I wait until the hood hinge supports and hood itself are installed before installing the hood hinge that contains the spring (and lifts the hood) on each side? Or when the hood is off should I install the hood spring hinges?
       
      My theory would be it might be easier to install the hood without the hood spring assemblies installed yet so it could sit flat instead of in a lifted position. But I very well could be wrong
       
      The other option would be to install the hood spring assembly on each side while the hood is off (but would require my helper and I to lift the hood on in a raised position, then attach the hood hinges with the springs to the hood hinge supports in a "hood raised" position. 
       
      I want to prevent a mistake or any major problem from doing this incorrectly. Also do you know if the hood hinges with the springs attach with the bolt side in or the nut side in?
       
      If anyone has access to information that says how this is supposed to be done and would share an image it would be greatly appreciated. If not, what order would you go about doing this? Hood hinge supports first (with the one bolt on each cowl side going in first, then lift hood to install spring assemblies, or install spring assemblies whole the hood is off or do I have this all wrong. Hopefully I made sense out of this because the parts come tomorrow. 
       
      Thanks very much.

      I recently installed the upgraded digital dash in our LTZ that did not have it thanks to White Automotive and Media Services.  The process turned out to be quite a bit more daunting than I had expected. I had found a few posts (here and another better start here) that talked about upgrading the gauge cluster, however I could not find any specific step by step instructions to gain access. 
       
      Here's the obligatory "After" photo showing our new gauge cluster!
       

       
      With plenty of reasons for everyone to access the radio, center console, and gauge cluster, I thought a step by step tutorial would make the project immensely easier for anyone willing to do it. And trust me, If I can do it, you can do it. 
       
      This "How To" is a work in progress I just wanted to get it out the before it's fully complete for anyone who wants to do this or has been struggling with how to get the specific trim pieces that are required off. 
       
      I plan to do this entire process again in the near future so I can create a video showing this process and take additional photographs to fill in what I missed the first time. 
       
      LAST UPDATE: Feb 21st, 2020
       

       
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Tools needed
      7mm socket with 6 inch extension & ⅜ ratchet , plastic interior trim removal tools, T15 Torx bit
       
      Plastic Interior Trim Removal Tools are absolutely necessary. Using metal tools or screw drivers will 100% damage your interior!
       
      We used this kit from Amazon that costs around $16.  <------ This is not a referral link. Just being helpful and showing as an example. 

      Prepare by cleaning out center console, cup holders, charging area, side console storage areas, and by moving the front driver/passenger seats backwards. 
      Using towels, create a soft area to store interior pieces during work
       
      The Steps
       
      Pry infotainment decorative chrome/painted trim away, starting at the bottom around the HVAC vents on each side, then the top. 
      Remove square access cover directly next to the accelerator pedal.  Remove the 7mm screw under the decorative cover. 
      Place fingers in drivers side footwell console storage area and use moderate force to pull the side of the center console away.  You do not have the totally remove the panel. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose towards the top and front of the panel.  Do the same on the passenger side, however there is no screw to remove before the panel will snap out. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose. You do not have to totally remove the panel.  With the center console lid open, use a pry tool to pop the clips holding the top of the center console area to the center console assembly.  Pull up and disconnect approximately 10 clips around the cup holders, charging pad and/or storage pad area  and up to directly below the radio/climate controls. Do not yank the trim too far away, there are wires connected to the bottom of this trim piece.  Gently position the tray as far rearward as possible without removing the wires, or gently remove the wire connectors and place the console on your soft area.  Using a pry tool, remove the thin, curved piece of trim directly under the USB/12V/120V Trailer Brake Controls. There are five clips to remove, each releasing directly towards the rear of the vehicle, parallel to the floor of the vehicle. Release  two clips on each side then pull gently to remove the center clip.
      Positi on console tray (if still attached) to remove two T15 screws at bottom of infotainment/climate control unit.  Unscrew top four T15 screws holding infotainment/climate control in place at top of unit.  Using pry bar, pull infotainment unit away, releasing approximately 8 clips around the unit. Use caution, HVAC ducting will come out with the unit, so only pull directly out.  Disconnect Unit or lean out to continue on for access to gauge cluster. 
      Using a plastic pry tool, release the leather infotainment trim, but only along the side of the cluster.  Using a plastic pry tool, remove the leather gauge cluster hood. The approximately 6 clips are released pulling straight up.  Remove the fuse access panel on the driver’s side door opening.  Using a T15 bit, remove the two screws holding the Light Control / 4X4 Switch unit in place.  Using a pry tool, pull the Light Control / 4X4 Switch unit directly away from the dash. There are approximately 8 clips holding it in place. 
      Unscrew three 7mm screws holding the front cluster trim piece in place.  Using your hands, pry the cluster trim piece away from behind the steering wheel, including the trim piece on the top of the steering wheel column that is attached. 
      Remove four 7mm screws holding gauge cluster in place. 
      For 2019 trucks, slide red locking tab and lift cam lock to remove cluster harness. 
      Reverse steps to reassemble.   
       
      Please comment with any suggestions, edits, or comments. I'd like this to be as helpful as possible.
