Much of it is automated. That was a copied message from my salesman, via their internal messaging.

I'm still impressed. Any chat session I've tried, I prepare by putting on my PJ's and mixing a tall one first, and still wind up fidgeting before it's done (or actually started).

I do sympathize though. You've bought your Christmas gift, Santa has come and gone and you're still waiting. Gah.

Probably that its sold and a customer is waiting for it As opposed to a vehicle which is not sold and will sit on the lot for a while


At the railroad we use the term hot car being that a customer is waiting on it putting a priority that the car needs to make the train that day and cant sit in the yard

Yeah, "hot" I assume being a sold unit. Apparently not hot enough though.

After all that, it arrived today. The Alaska package details are being removed, then it's off for rust proofing. I should be driving it by Saturday.

GM did not ship it with the Alaska package tires, but instead sent it with 7 ply Michelins.

Re: Chevy 2500 Crew Cab Long Box Gas


Yeah, those decals had to come off.

Its about 21' 6"...no easy parking.

Interesting, I didn't take any pictures but when it was up on the lift, I easily found where the factory applied nox-rust was wore off on the frame from when it was slung during assembly. That area surely will suffer on new trucks, if they haven't been protected post purchase.

I cut my teeth on a 15 passenger van. Downtown parking isn't fun when you're that long.

Awesome truck. Are they going to put 10 ply tires on it?

Re: Chevy 2500 Crew Cab Long Box Gas


From my research, number of plys isn't as useful a criteria being technology has changed making load ratings contingent on different factors.

I'll double check today, but I think they sent it with a less aggressive looking Michelin all terrain LTX A/T rated for around 60-70k. Still a great tire.

Too bad the dealer can’t disable the “buzzer” that goes off constantly anytime you do something GM doesn’t like. They have that thing wired to the sound system and cranked up to 1000. You need earplugs just to start the engine.
