My truck has the auto start/stop. I usually just leave it on but during the summer I turn that shite off. It gets hot quickly in a vehicle in South Louisiana at a red light

I'm not a huge fan that feature can't be permanently disabled without a custom tune.


Do you see a considerable difference in mileage by turning that off? I couldn't imagine the AC not working at some of these red lights that take forever when it's hot as balls outside.

There's supposed to be an dongle you can install on the Chevy/GMC pickups with the 5.3l V8 to permanently turn off the dynamic displacement. While my truck gets 22-24 mpg if I stick to driving on the interstate, I've been told it can cause it to burn through oil. I haven't seen that but I'm curious if it does start to happen.

Not really. I don't drive a ton though and it's almost all in the city. Supposedly there's a sensor that measures the temperature in the cab and kicks it back on after a 2 degree change. I just ease my foot off a little if I get hot.

Nah. I have pulled loads a long ways on both platforms and 100% the diesels last much longer and bring in more $$ at resale.

Gas mileage is way better also.

You can buy decently equipped full-size crew cabs under $40k still.


The best deal going is the F-150 STX trim.
Comes with vinyl floors and locking rear differential.

You could probably pick one up for $35K.

Plus you get the STX decal on the side. I won’t lie, I insisted on a decal when I bought a truck.

Not sure why everyone thinks truck prices are outrageous. I bought a brand new Ford F-150 in 1999 for $27,000. Last week I bought a new Ford F-150 for $37,000. An online inflation calculator showed that $27,000 in today’s dollars is actually $41,425. I guess trucks are a bargain.

I was just about to post something like this. Have you tried to buy a slightly used vehicle lately? You can't find any half ton truck worth a damn with low miles under 35k. So am I going to spend 40k on a used truck or 45k(with rebates they offer) on a new one with cheaper finance rate, and full factory warranty?

Also, Think about this: Ol baws have been buying 60k plus bass boats for years and financing them for 15 years plus! So why wouldn't you think they would do the same for their trucks?

You already have 108 month financing at $750 a month, what more do you want?

Almost as if they cost about $8k more upfront. Amazing that they bring in more on resale

I traded in my 2014 Chevy Silverado Z71 but was 2WD in last month on a 2019 Ford F150 XLT FX4. My Silverado had 49K on it when I traded it in and they offered 21,000. I kinda laughed asked for my keys back. They finally offered 24K which was right in line with KBB and NADA. I payed 43 with TTL a for the new truck and had 18,000 in equity in the Silverado so financed 25k. Luckily I have a company vehicle for work and put low miles on my personal truck every year so I will be holding on to the new one for awhile. They turned around and had the Silverado listed for 28k and it sold in two days I believe.

A 2wd Z71?

That thing would get lot rot in WI before it sold. At a huge discount.

A great setup. The locking diff will get you out of most situations. The 4wd on my z71 almost never gets engaged because of the locker.





Not sure why you're being a little bitch about it.

First new vehicle I ever owned and bought what I was comfortable paying for at the time Z71 is now just an appearance package/trim level with the skid plates and locking rear diff
