Exactly.  Which is why it's so frustrating to be given the "option" to build your own truck yet you can't actually build your own truck...

unless you literally build your own truck.. buying a WT and swapping out the radio, seats, purchasing additional wiring harnesses , etc. so you can go in and re-wire the cab for what you actually want.

 

My Tahoe Z71 from 2000 was an awesome truck, i'd love to have the option to add a sunroof & upgrade the stereo from the base package that vehicle had..

came with leather (and seat warmers)

came with towing package

4x4 (duh)

heated and auto dimming mirrors

 

now, to get a sunroof, you'd need to purchase an LTZ or SLE / Denali I believe..

If I have to do it myself then why bother giving me the false option of having GM build it the way they think I want it?  Also I'm one of those that sees the sunroof as pointless and since I seem to be in the minority finding my next vehicle that doesn't have one will yet again add to my needle in the haystack search.

Nobody gives a damn about the drivers safety. They sell what sells.

Nobody seems interested in auto-adjusting head lights. Therefore, you still can't get it in a truck, where it would actually make sense.

I’ve noticed since 2011 that when you’re going uphill people think you have your highs on. I’ve adjusted my headlights down on some of my vehicles to eliminate the flashing as much as possible. This is on cars too. When people come towards me coming up hill if there running (fog) lights are on usually that means they’re on low beams. It sucks having to drive at night with one hand on the high beam switch.

I was more referring to headlights that adjust to the rear squat of the truck when loaded.

But you're right, the blinding headlights of a loaded truck are even worse on hills.

They're also slow to implement the corner following headlights too.  TFL just did a video on the half tons and their safety rating.  Only dodge has the cornering lights so they got the highest over all among the 5 half tons.  Apparently the govt now includes headlights in their safety testing.  Think they started that a year or two ago.
