I will get a fuel tank / tool box in the bed.Fuel gage slow while running is normal. Not an issue if you shut it down. It's a feature. Wait till you tow in T/H - the tranny temp above 180 will seem normal. Nothing but Transync in the tranny. Tank is stupid small 26gal US. The 36 on my L5P was like a gift, could never run a 26 again. You can also upgrade to a +52 gal for about $1.5k US. If I was keeping that truck for 250k, that's one of the first upgrades I'd make. Went through 3 sets of rear U joints on my LBZ, every 50k, and if you swap, run greaseable.
I have the same one and its a great truck. you will love it.http://www.morganbuickgmc.com/Vehic...andard_Box_SLT-Shreveport-LA/3478749933#close
Please comment good bad or indifferent.
My fuel gauge always takes awhile to get up to full, passengers always ask why I didn't fill up when we pull away from the pump. Been that way since I got mine 5.5 yrs ago.Returned home last night. Truck performed well but no longer 58,xxx miles on it. :face-icon-small-ton
Did over 10 fuel stops playing with the EDGE programmer with 5 codes.
Best mileage was 22+ MPG for about 400 miles at night flat ground using 5 extreme ( Allison / Duramax 2500hd crew 4wd 3.73 rear 285/55/20 tires )
Averaged 19 MPG whole 1550 plus miles.
Only issue was a black truck in the desert at 112F going 75 with the AC on the tranny started to get hot from 140 to almost 200 after 3 plus hours driving. Pulled over and could have cooked stake on the roof of the cab. So pulled into a town and washed all the bugs out of the radiators ! Temp back to 140.
Fuel gage took a while to register full tank keeping the truck running.
Rear end got noisy tires and gears after 5 plus hours but ended if we pulled over for just a few minutes. Did not get noisy on hill climbs.
Wife drives a 06 Cadi escalade with almost the identical interior and wish she had this truck instead !!!!
