With the new electric Hummer starting at $112,000 I am afraid I could not buy one even if I was totally on board with the concept!

 

Hell Now that I am retired I am not sure I can afford a normal GM truck anymore!

Dealer shops are unable to resolve diesel emissions issues...and now there will be complexity of electric vehicles? Oh my... how long do you think “warranty” will be?  How long will the car owners wait for “unavailable parts”? Will known defective or low reliability replacement parts be installed during “warranty?

 

the “power grid”, like all commercial products, is running at “maximum profit”... reinvestment is not happening. (Can’t use electric wireline trucks without electricity... REMEMBER the “freak” collapse of Texas grid so that our resources were sold to highest bidder?). More houses are “all Electric” and more planned. Everyone home. Cranking heat and tv, etc..maybe even “cooking” on their stove...the “reserve” of 10% doesn’t cut it. “Deregulation” in utilities has had opposite of “intended result”.  The “competition” has been rigged and people froze to death....  

 

wait until we hang these “edicted” cars hanging on the grid...

Let's bring this "one and done" post back to life. OP had 4 names, 3 first or middle, and a last, so my guess is that he discovered this forum, and posted his amazement🤔😬

 

Some days I am amazed that we don't speak a different language, because we have been conquered by another country....

      I had just finished installing my cam and put everything back together but as soon as I go to turn on the truck it won’t turn on it just cranks and a lot of smoke starts coming out of the engine. At first i thought it was some oil that had spilled on the headers or on the block. But i don’t know what to do please help

      I've been wanting to install longtube headers on my 2007 sierra classic for awhile and now that I've noticed that the OEM exhaust manifold is cracked and one stud is broken I think it's the time to do so. Just wondering what info i should know before doing so. Do I need to have it tuned? I currently have a cold air intake, throttle body spacer and cat back exhaust but that's pretty much it.

      Hello guys, looking to just level my 2016 chevy silverado z71. Is the best way to do spacers or to do like a bilstein 5100 shocks? Am guessing spacers are the cheaper way. Is there any other options besides belstein shocks?
      Thanks for any info!

      Ok, 
       
      I want to come back to the GMC/Chevy family.  For over 20 years, I owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself and LOVED the truck. I too owned a 2003 Chevy 1500...put many miles on it too.
       
      I am looking at the GMC/Chevy 2500 series diesel trucks.  I will stay within the 2016-2019 year range, with about $35k plus'ish budget.  I might look at the 2021 trucks, only due to many deals/rebates etc. 
       
      What suggestions or tips are out there for these trucks?  What should I watch out for and/or look at getting? 
       
      So, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with  Chrysler/Fiat (FCA).  Short story, they lied about the ecodiesel, and after forced recall ECM update, they sucked all performance etc., from the truck.  When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance.
       
      Thanks, for any suggestions that you will provide.  Gary
