RE: Interior swap for 07 GMC 2500 Classic Crew Cab

There are a lot of pickup accessory businesses that also install leather. Here for a bucket seat equipped GM pickup it would cost about 1200 to convert to leather. The aftermarket leather tends to be of better quality than the OEM leather.

RE: new 2500hd

I am another happy 3500 HD 6.0 customer. I pulled 17K up a 6 mile 6% grade at 6K feet last week. She pulled like a champ. I had to start the pull from a dead stop ( had to go through a DOT check point at bottom of the hill). I was impressed with how well it pulled. The quietness of the cabs is very impressive, great capacity, there is not much not to like with these pickups. They are selling a lot of the GM HD's here.

RE: 2015 RAM Rebel

I think Honda had a small street bike called the Rebel.

RE: 2016 Chevy Camaro

The interior of the Camaro is far nicer but the body of the Mustang is better looking to me and it's lighter too. I am not sure how you know that the Mustang is lighter. They have not released the weight of the Camaro yet.

RE: 2015 RAM Rebel

The name is really lame. Rebel? A pickup like that and you call it a "Rebel"?

RE: New 2017 Mega cabs

Crew cab is plenty for me. My kids don't need to be more comfortable than I do. Or my dog, which is the only thing living that hangs out back there.

RE: GM 6.2 or 5.3

The only downside is the 6.2 can get expensive, not so much for the motor but everything else that is forced with it. If your going to get a loaded up crew cab anyway than it is a very easy decision.

RE: 245/75/16 to 265/75/16 any issues?

My MPG's suffered some with the 265's, but they look so much better it was worth it.

RE: 2015 Chevy 1500 6.2L 8 Speed - Ike Gauntlet

I did not like the new body style until I saw a few in person. I have since changed my mind and think they are good looking trucks. My biggest complaint with all the currant GM offerings is that the front end hangs well below the center line of the the wheel. I still go off on some rougher forest service roads. I have never had a lifted truck. I have been able to do this in my old 90 and currant 2000. Looking at all the new GM offerings they have such lousy approach angles you have to lift them a few inches so you do not tare the front bumpers off. And if memory serves me with the 6.2 doesn't it run best on 91 octane? You can pull that plastic air dam off if you chose. I put a Cognito leveling kit on mine (3500) and left the air dam on, it sits up a bit higher now with much better approach angle capability. I am offroad often and have not dragged it yet.

RE: 2015 Chevy 1500 6.2L 8 Speed - Ike Gauntlet

Did I hear them correctly when they mentioned that the Silverado 6.0 gas HD won the heavy duty gas test? If so very interesting when the competition (6.2 Ford, 6.4 Ram) seem to have the advantage on paper. In a very unscientific test they choose the 6.0 over the 6.4 Hemi and 6.2 respectively. Having said that I'm not sure what GM is waiting for to put this 6.2 in their HD trucks. I think they were waiting for me to buy a 2015 3500 with the 6.0, that being done I would expect the HD version of the 6.2 to be released any time now.

RE: Water tank location

I had a 2010 322 Fuzion (much the same a Raptor) and the tank is actually behind the rear axle and mine almost separated itself from the rest of the trailer. Pull down the cardboard and take a look. It is enough of an issue to be worth your time to make sure yours is solid.

RE: Wife would like an acadia,traverse,or enclave 09 or 10 ???

My inlaws bought an Enclave a year ago, I believe it is a '14. They really like it coming from a Town and Country mini van. They don't tow with it. I like the exterior looks of the GMC better but the newer Buicks certainly are well done.

RE: Ford suspension

My Ford Super Cab had a flat load floor when I flipped up the seats and I kept a kennel behind the front seats. My current Ram Crew Cab has storage under the seats that makes the floor uneven with the seat flipped up (some trim models have a storage area cover making a taller load floor) - I now have the kennel riding higher up on the seat instead of the floor. I suggest you look at a few different truck cabs since there is also a variation between the extended and crew cabs. Some are optioned with additional audio gear or storage under the seats which may not work for you. This is the one thing I wish GM would fix. My 06 3500 CC had the seats that will lay flat, excellent for dogs and maximizing the useable space. My 2012 had the rear seats that fold up as does my 2015 and while the entry height is lower, the space is not as usable for dogs. My 125 pound Akita has enough room in the new GM HD, but the seats that lay flat is a better system in my view.

RE: newbie who would appreciate some advice

We have been able to get our 38' Fuzion TH in everywhere that we wish to be in Idaho and Montana (a lot of dispersed camping). It is true that some of the older camp grounds are not favorable to big trailers, but in our experience the bigger issue is that many of the FS and BLM camp sites but boulders at the back of the trailer parking spots which doesn't always work well with a toyhauler of most any size (rear door issues with rocks). We have been pulling these sized trailers since 09 and I have not regretted this size trailer. It may not have always been easy, but has always been doable. I think you will have plenty of pickup of the size trailers your considering.

RE: Dually or Single?

Well I bought a 2009 Chevy Silverado 3500HD DRW... I LOVE it and can't wait to get my new trailer! Good choice.

RE: Deleting Miliage setting

I don't think that you could change the fuel range on the last gen either. You can clear your mileage and it will restart from zero but the range, as mentioned will change as you add fuel but will also change depending on the last mpg ratings. So if you pulled a heavy trailer and got 9 mpg and then unhooked and fueled up, your range you see on the DIC will reflect the 9 mpg last earned, once your current mpg increases you will then notice that your range will start increasing. However you cant, to my knowledge, zero out the range yourself.

RE: The frame sag say over payload :)

The purpose of an ad is to generate interest. That can be done in a number of ways with pickups, pulling a log train, pulling the space shuttle or carrying the competitive trucks up a hill. If the ad generates that interest and gets people talking/thinking about the product, than the ad dollars were well spent. It is really no more complex than that.

RE: The frame sag say over payload :)

always wondered if these ads prove that marketing folks are buffoons or that their customers are idiots who believe their stuff... With all the disclaimers in advertisements it's obvious that consumers are the idiots. What is there to believe? No one with two arms and an ass is going to believe that their pickup is OK to pull that. Certainly that is not the message of the ad. The ad "dares greatly" as does the Toyota commercial with the space shuttle. I am not a Toyota customer and never will be, but that ad is cool as is this one. Who latches on to a train of logging trailers with a 2500? NOBODY. That is what makes it a daring ad. Personally, I like that.

RE: Opinions please; 2009 Silverado LTZ 2500HD Duramax

I'm curious since you have such a new truck why you're going to diesel you seem to have the relatively light trailer Reason I ask is: I'm planning on getting the 6.2 Ford... Have not been happy with my cheap Chevy interior noise on mine Demo a 2015 GM HD pickup, they are extremely quiet. Quietest on the market so they say, while I cant speak to that, I can say that they obviously made huge steps in cabin noise reduction and interior design from the GMT 900.
