RE: New tow rig. GM 10 speed

I drove my RST 5.3 from Az to Wisconsin and back at least 5 mph over the speed limit the whole time and averaged 22 mpg hand calculated. Better than I expected and that was with an engine and transmission in the back of the truck for the ride home. Been really happy with my 5.3 but I want the ten speed

RE: New tow rig. GM 10 speed

My 2019 RST 5.3 8speed gets a solid 21-22 on the highway and around 15-16 around town. So I'd bet the small lift with the little bit bigger tires drops it a tad. I was thinking about getting the trailboss later this year for the ten speed but I may hold off.

RE: New tow rig. GM 10 speed

They only put the ten speed with the 5.3 in the trailboss. Everything else gets the 8 speed unless you get the 6.2. Very nice truck there. Thanks! I expected it to have the 8 speed, so that was a pleasant surprise, although the 8 speed one I had for a couple months, previously, was a similar step up from the 6. Fun fact, the LT Trailboss models get the 10 speed, but the Custom Trailboss models (low optioned) get the old 6 speed behind the 5.3 or 4.3 motors. Your RST is a 6.2, correct? Love those truck too. My RST is a 8 speed 5.3. Its a little rocket. Don't think I would want the 6.2

RE: 6.6 gas with ten speed?

I couldn't get it to link. Have to copy and paste. Hope to get a 6.6 gas with a ten speed later this year.

RE: Ram 1500 at Load Maximum Woes

Overloaded. Need a bigger truck to be safe and within numbers. No hate

RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

So basically the test was just as subjective as all fuel mileage claims? Shocking. And anyone who obsesses over gas mileage in a 8000lb truck literally pulling its own weight, needs a new hobby. Any of y’all who have experience with a lot of vehicles, know that generally the differences are subtle. And save for the most controlled tests, not reliable. I don't think anyone is obsessed here. I think we mainly just want more information on these trucks and how that compare.

Love the looks of the Chevy

RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

Both trucks have been out for at least a year now. Why can't these guys or pickup trucks.com do a simple side by side comparison?

RE: Ram 2021 questions

That's a good question. Even the standard engine has big power. I'd say you definitely don't NEED it but sure would be nice.

RE: 6.6 Chevy gas engine

Very interested in the 6.6 gas 3/4 ton. Yes we are all spoiled these days, I remember the family of eight going up to the Sierras in my 54 Carryall/Suburban (that I still have) in the 60s, towing an 18 ft Aljo trailer and a Honda 90 on the front and rack on the roof. Dad was dancing between Granny and second all the way up and had to pull over a couple of times to cool her down and we ended up putting the motorcycle inside the trailer but what a journey that was. My 2019 RST Silverado tows great with alot of power with the 5.3 and that 8 speed but once you tow with a 3/4 ton,it's hard to go back to a half ton. I would like a ten speed but the couple people that I've talked to say its a non issue pretty much.

RE: 2008 F250 with 5.4

From what I've seen this engine is very weak in a 3/4 ton truck. I've helped a guy get unstuck with a 3/4 ton 4x4 in the sand in Mexico. He was pretty buried in the sand but even in low range it didn't have enough beans to spin the tires. Others seem happy with them in the 1/2 tons.

RE: 6.6 Chevy gas engine

I'm very interested in this engine/drive train too.

RE: Straight-line weight distribution system

I had mine on two separate trailers. Really works well. Simple set up really. Drill and mount as they say and then just drive perfectly straight on flat ground and stop and loosen the two big jam nuts and tap the cams so they're center in the bars and then tighten them up. After many miles you will flip the cams over due to wear on the cams. People over react on the set up. Really prett easy.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

I would stay far away from any small diesel. They are problematic and not worth the aggravation. This coming from a diesel tech. Why?

RE: No 3/4 ton trucks.

I will order exactly what I want when I'm ready but I wanted to check them out. My 2019 1500 works great but my last 4 trucks were 3/4 ton and I really like the feel of a 3/4 ton truck. So tell me what is the better FEEL of a 3/4 ton over a one ton? I would rather have that FEELING when towing than when daily driving. Never owned a one ton but I suspect that its close to a 3/4 ton since they are nearly the same truck

“Why, son, you can tow any travel trailer with a Chevy 1500!” Son? Only with an Eco boost

No 3/4 ton trucks.

So I went by Auto Nation Chevrolet yesterday to look at the 2021 chevy 3/4 ton trucks. They didn't have one 3/4 ton on the lot. Not one 2020 or 2021 gas or diesel. They had around 7 or 8 1500s there. When I bought my 2019 a little over a year ago, they had probably 200 or more trucks. Kind of crazy.
