The thing that I don't understand is that being from a cold climate area they tell us that during the supper hours to not turn on stoves, dryers, dishwashers etc or it may cause a brown out. How in the hell are we going to have streets of electric cars and trucks plugged in. At least currently (sorry Bad pun) we don't have the infrastructure to support electrics. Just what we need is more ugly wind mills and power towers running all over the damn place!

It’s been discussed for over 100years and the greedy oil and coal companies keep us all in a box. Did you guys know that Niagara Falls can actually power almost half the planet, if not more with FREE ELECTRICITY! Greed is in the way!

I'm sure that Greta Thunberg has all the answers.

Someone will eventually invent the flux-compensator and all is good.

Not even if it outperforms your current vehicle in 0-70 braking, handling and best of all gets 500 miles between each charge?

 

I can go 600 miles on a tank now. 500 is going backwards.

I’d still go with a badass electric beast getting 500 miles on a single charge versus 600 or 700 miles per tank. No oil change, lighter, lots faster. I’ve talked myself into getting one, just don’t have any beast trucks out yet lol

And?

The point of electric over gas/diesel is beneficial for the environment and lots more efficient.

I'm not saying there isn't some merit, but right now its vapor ware.

Petroleum and coal manufacturing is enormously worse. OP asked if anyone would buy one, my response was yes, as long as I got my beast electric truck that does what mine does only more efficiently. I agree, batteries aren’t highly toxic but I was taking about harnessing the atmospheric electricity that’s always around us. Wouldn’t need to charge it unless it was an added boost up the mountain lol

      Ok, so finally took ownership of the 3500 AT4 DMAX on Thursday and boy is this an awesome truck!
       
      First box shorter than 8ft in 22 years so that's a bit strange but I will sort it out.
       
      What gets me is how heavy the truck is. Anyone else in British Columbia have issues with them being so heavy amd now having to get a NSC # because of it? This is a pain in a rear end.

      On my 2015 Silverado Crew Cab 2WD, I currently have the RC 2.5 inch spacer leveling kit with all stock shocks. I am wanting to replace all 4 shocks with Bilstein 5100s. Does anyone have experience combining these shocks with the spacers from RC? I would also like a little more ground clearance. Nothing too crazy, just a little more aggressive look than the stock 2WD height with a leveling kit. Trying to decide if I take the spacers out and go with the RC 3.5 inch suspension lift with upper control arms, remove the spacers and go with Bilstein 5100 on the highest setting all around, or simply replace all shocks with 5100 and keep the spacers up front. Just trying to figure out what will get me the look I want and also be the most mechanically sound so I don't cause any weird issues with ball joints, etc. Any help would be awesome. 
       
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone, new to the forum here and haven't seem to be able to find an answer after searching.
       
      Purchased a 2020 1500 AT4 last summer(love the truck), and recently added the Firestone Ride-Rite kit to the rear(kit #2609). I also ordered the 2" spacer kit as recommended (kit #2366).
       
      I'm having a bit of a problem with the install and was wondering if anyone else has added rear air bags to their AT4, and did you end up using the spacer or were you fine without it?
       
      Problem is the air bags are slightly misaligned, and appear "under-inflated" with the spacer in there even when I have 10-20psi in them(there is about 500lbs in/on the box via a canopy and a Decked box system installed in the bed; I'd rather not have to try and remove these unless I absolutely need to, to diagnose the problem).
       
      I know in the instructions it says to have 5.5-6.5" of space between the upper and lower mounts. So my next plan is to jack up the back of the truck enough via the hitch receiver to recreate the correct factory fender gap front to back(should be roughly 1.5" from the factory with no load if I'm no mistaken?), and then measure the distance between the new mounts.
       
      Thoughts and/or someone who has added rear airbags to their AT4? I'd assume the Trail Boss would be very similar?
       
      Cheers

      Has anyone ever tried changing the aluminum line to rubber hose crimps for the transmission and oil cooler lines out for AN fittings on and 07-13 Sierra 5.3L? I have a 2013 Sierra and the cold here in Canada isn’t kind to these crimps as I believe the rubber and aluminum have different shrink rates because of difference in material causing them to leak. Replacing them will not solve the problem as the will just do the same thing every year. So what I want to know is if anyone has successfully done this and what fittings did you use?
