Case in point:

2006: The new 6-speed transmission is great!

2014: That old 6-speed was junk!  But the new 8-speed is great!!

2017: That old 8-speed was trash!  But the new 10-speed is fantastic!!!

Explain something to me. If this years truck is 'light years' ahead of the K2 isn't that an admission the K2 was a known piece of junk? What is it that was improved that wasn't deficient in the K2**'s? I thought they were perfect according to the claims rejections for warranty work and denied customer complains.

 

Oh....Shinny!! New!!!! Crows at sunrise that forgot what yesterday looked like. Get a grip. You cheated me before and what me to buy this years 'perfect'? Good luck with that.

 

What's it going to be next product cycle? 32 speed triple turbo NPG 1 liter One ton's?

Invasion of privacy for one thing. We’re constantly being watched whether you know it or not, Samsung got sued cause their TVs came with mics on them listening to the surroundings and Samsung claimed it was in order to give better feed back especially while you’re making Whoopi with your partner. Lexi same thing, amazon expressed same interest, all for better customer service etc etc etc! Your smart phone asks whether it’s ok to let the maker communicate with your phone in order to make better phones...why not just make a better phone and listen to reviews???? Cause programs used for spying are literally in almost every electronic device we now have. There’s no conspiracy, it’s out in the open. I just don’t want someone telling me what I can or cannot do, buy, etc... we live in The United States of America not Russia or other dictatorship run country.

 

Btw, I change insurance companies before anyone receiving my personal habits or whereabouts and then selling that info to third parties.

I missed something in my first reply to this, Samsung did not get sued, nor has any others of the ones mentioned.  Don't know where you got the idea they did, but, you simply accepting something like that without doing a simple google search to authenticate the story is a result of living in fear, not freedom.  

 

BTW, allowing my insurance company to use my smart phone to monitor my driving for 1,000km has resulted in a $268 refund on my insurance premium.  My monitoring window ended last week.  If I didn't want them watching where I was going it was quite simple to get around.  Put my Sim into my Nokia windows phone and go where I wanted to, and drive as badly as I wanted.  If I need to do this again at renewal time, I will do it again. Hopefully they will apply this to my bike insurance.

You’re one of the very very few that’s ok with being monitored in order to save a few bucks.

Washington State is exploring the idea of replacing the current gas tax for road funding with a pay-per-mile system via GPS tracking. From there it's a short trip to the government adjusting the cost of your trip to push their agenda, or dictate what trips they deem to be necessary and when they deem them necessary. With Seattle leading the charge, the DOT would much rather see people on bikes, busses or trains and not driving their own automobiles. From there, why not instant speeding tickets? Are you now a suspect of a crime because you were within a mile radius?

I’m guessing that pay-per-mile is not very far into our future.   I haven’t totally thought this through but I’m kinda thinking some sort of two-track system may have merit.  One track being the current method where we pay a road tax at the gas pump whereas by default heavier vehicles pay more per miles driven because their mpg is lower due to weight, gearing, etc.  the other track would be for EV’s and perhaps hybrids which burns zero gas in the case of Ev’s or in the case of hybrids significantly less.  Anyway, especially EV’s are getting off totally free on road use cost.  As they continue to grow in popularity an equitable solution will have to be found.

America was created by those and for those that like to live their lives outside of the box! America is not a good place to live if you’re used to being told what and what not to do. And this is why America is the most powerful country on the planet. God Bless The United States of America and all those who defend the Constitution of The United States of America

      I would like to change the regular bulbs in my Front turn signals on my RST to LEDs. Does anyone know what bulbs these are (they are marked 855)? Any recommendations on LED's that won't require resistors?

      When you take delivery of a brand new 2019 Silverado, you'll be faced with a few choices beyond which trim level or options you want. You'll also be asked which accessories you want to be installed on your truck before it rolls off the sales floor. Most GM accessories can even be factored into the sale price and financed. So, we're setting off to try out some of these certified accessories that are available for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Our goal is to let you know if they are worth the cash or if you should take a pass. 
       
      We've always loved the look of a blacked out bowtie and the idea of one that lights up seemed too cool to pass up. So we headed to our local dealership and ordered the 2019+ Illuminated & Blacked out front bowtie. Here's how it went and what we think. 
       

       
      What is it?
      Chevrolet Illuminated Grille Bowtie Emblem in Black
      Part Number: 84069488
      MSRP: $275.00
      Manufacturer Website: https://accessories.chevrolet.com/
       
      Main Features
      Doesn't effect your factory warranty Direct replacement for the standard gold bowtie Same quality as original parts Wiring harness is plug & play and matches factory wiring  

       
      Here's the bowtie and grille as it came from the factory. 
       
      Installation
      The first step to install the illuminated bowtie (or the non-illuminated black bowtie) is to remove the front grille. The grille on our LTZ was easy to take once we understood how it was fastened to the body. The entire process runs around 30 mintues  We'll be covering how to remove the grille on the 2019 Silverado in detail soon. 
       

      A plastic trim removal set makes this process much easier. 
       

      After a little bit of pulling and careful prying, the entire front grille section comes off. Note the grille can be removed without having to take off any body panels or reach under the vehicle. This is a huge improvement over past Silverado generations, which required more disassembly to access the grille mounting hardware. 
       


      The grille is a solid unit. Switching it out with another trim level's grille would be easy at this stage. This is also a good time to clean up the grille. 
       

      To remove the factory bowtie, release four tab clips on the backside of the grille. One is inside of the support post where you will also run the bowtie's wiring harness. 
       

      We popped out the bowtie and cleaned behind it before installing the new one. It was filthy underneath!  
       

      The included wiring harness plugs into the driver's side headlight harness. It then snakes through the radiator opening and clips to the bumper. We found it easier to run the wire through the grille and connect it to bowtie, THEN snap the bowtie to the grille afterwards. Attempting to plug the harness into the bowtie after it is mounted on the grille turns out to be extremely difficult. 
       


      We tested the bowtie to make sure it lit up properly before we attached the grille back onto the truck. 
       

       
      Our Impressions
      Installation of the illuminated bowtie turned out to be pretty easy provided we used the right tools. Our plastic trim kit was invaluable during the process, allowing us to pry and remove pieces without scratching them. The kit also didn't come with instructions, so make sure to ask your dealer for a set of them when you buy it. They can print it out for you. 
       
      The quality of the bowtie is on par with other factory parts and matches accordingly. The wiring harness looks similar to those already running under the hood giving the final fit a factory feel. 
       

       
      So while the look and feel of the product is excellent the actual performance of the illuminated bowtie left us wanting more. We expected an illumination effect with a similar brightness to our DRL lighting. Instead, the bowtie glows a dull white at light. During the day or bright sunlight the illumination effect disappears completely. We do appreciate that the color temperature of the bowtie matches the headlights and DRLs. 
       

       
      The MSRP of $275 is steep for the eventual lackluster performance. Excellent build quality, plug and play performance, a factory look, and no warranty interference offset the price to an extent. 
       
      If you want a quality replacement for your gold bowtie that adds a little more flare to your 2019 Silverado, the Illuminated Black Bowtie could be right for you. If you're looking for a bright centerpiece that stands out with the same intensity as your other lighting, this may not fit your bill.
