Backup camera does come in handy, I do admit. Especially when backing outta a busy parking lot spot. Gives you some peripheral vision when crammed in between other trucks and vans....
I ignored it for a while but get gravitating too it. The 14 Tundra was the only truck I owned that didn’t have a cattywampus license plate...Yep, I hated them when they first came out, now I use it as often as my mirrors. Love being able to see the ball and hitch alignment, much more efficient for hook ups.
Went last night and picked up a 2020 GMC 1500. It is the AT4 trim package. Has the 3.0L inline 6 Duramax in it. So far I am pretty impressed with the torque of the diesel. Only drove a 60 mile trip from the stealership to home so far so we will see how she does over time. Now I need to get serious about selling Ole Blue.View attachment 110420￼
Jon, I am sure you read all about it, but curious if the dealer brought up the oil pump belt and the need to drop tranny and transfer case at 150K for inspection/replace. I stopped keeping up on all the 1/2 diesel designs and now that there are some real world numbers on all 3 makes, its shaping up to be an interesting race. I think this category is long overdue and is only going to get better as folks understand the value of having a diesel in 1/2tons, especially as capacities increase with chassis designs ans materials.
That rubber belt in an oil bath just makes ya scratch your head tho.
No. I really don't expect them too any more. Most of them do not know anything about the vehicles. It's unfortunate.
In other news. Ol' Blue just pulled out of the driveway for the last time. He is headed up towards urbana now.
I know your last 10 months has been crazy. But....I'll keep this post updated with the high level info, but more details will be captured here:
