  1. Powerboost no start

    Yep, when the hybrid drive goes haywire the truck should be able to start and run on the 3.5l Ecoboost somehow. That was the major reason for me to move on from it.
  2. am I the only one with piss poor mpg

    I owned a Powerboost. Winter weather, no better mpg than a normal 3.5l Ecoboost. I bought the Powerboost with the big generator early on as a home electric back up. Then after a few months when people started to try to use it to backfeed the house and found out you pretty much need to rewire the...
  3. Powerboost no start

    Getting a Powerboost that won't start on a rollback is a pain in rear. It's a 2 person operation. One in the truck, that was me, and the wrecker operator winching the truck on. There's a release under the steering column. Anyway, good luck. In the above post I did say mine was fine. That was...
  4. BlueCruise 1.2 installed in F-150 -- review & hands-free driving video

    That's an F150 plus for you for sure. It wasn't for me as I don't use cruise control of any sort on surface streets 2 or 4 lanes, just on interstates /freeways. If I lived away from a large metro area, I'd probably think differently.
  5. BlueCruise 1.2 installed in F-150 -- review & hands-free driving video

    The GMC doesn't have the hands on steering assist, if that's what you mean. Using regular cruise control, you are driving the truck. The steering will give a tug in the direction to maintain the lane and and vibrate the seat but that's it. Whether you are using cruise or not, the truck alerts...
  6. BlueCruise 1.2 installed in F-150 -- review & hands-free driving video

    I actually miss good forums. I really like the GMC but GM truck forums really suck.. ;)
  7. BlueCruise 1.2 installed in F-150 -- review & hands-free driving video

    I now own a GMC 1500 Denali Ultimate with Super Cruise. It's significantly more advanced and works flawlessly. Lane changing is never a surprise as it vibrates the seat bottom on the side its going to change to before anything happens. I don't miss the steering wheel vibration that Ford uses to...
  8. New 22" WHEEL KIT - SINISTER BRONZE from Ford Performance for F-150

    Looks way better than black. @RickBullotta I've run and am running 22's on Michigan roads and they are way worse than PA.
  9. 2023 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate 1500

    This is kind of silly but I actually take a moment to watch the splash screen when I get in the truck before starting it. Found this short on YouTube. And yes, I'm still very happy with it.
  10. Suggestions on keeping your Tremor Clean.....

    All I own are black vehicles. I've lived in Michigan for 4 years now and use automatic washes in the winter. I just traded my black Platinum and the GMC dealer was amazed how nice the truck looked when it was appraised. And, this was mid-winter. In the fall, I take my Porter Cable to the truck...
  11. Pedestrian Alert System - Anyone else annoyed by it?

    Mine never bothered me sitting in the truck but apparently it was always noticed by my neighbors as they told me they can't tell when I leave the house anymore since I swapped brands.
  12. 37 Days and they are buying it back

    Took me about 3 days to get used to the GMC gearshift. Now muscle memory has taken over and I don't think about it. I initially told myself I was starting the truck in "neutral" and up for reverse and back for drive. Don't even have to worry about park if you don't want. Just turn off and it...
  13. 37 Days and they are buying it back

    Still thrilled with my GMC. The AT4 might be right up your alley.
  14. F-150 vs. 2022 Chevrolet Silverado

    I went 6.2l gasser. I had a Ram 2500 diesel in 2014 and it was useful when I was towing. But, I don't want to mess with DEF and smelling like a diesel mechanic after every fillup.
  15. F-150 vs. 2022 Chevrolet Silverado

    I followed through.... Bought the GMC Denali Ultimate last month. I really like the Google system running the infotainment system. The interior equals my old Ram Limited which I thought was better than my Platinum. This is how an exhaust system should look like. Fully integrated into the design.
  16. 2 year update on my 2021 Platinum Hybrid 4x4

    More good ones than bad. I kept mine for nearly 2 years. It would have been gone sooner had there been decent inventory. I've owned at 2 dozen F-series and my 2021 F150 Platinum 4X4 Powerboost was the worst. It stranded me off and on for over 3 months with a no start condition that would fix...
  17. What did you do TO your F-150 today?

    Only 2 engines available in the Ultimate 6.2l gasser and 3.0l diesel. I've owned 8 diesels and I'm done with smelling like a diesel mechanic after I filled up every time. So it's the 6.2l
  18. What did you do TO your F-150 today?

    Nuthin' better to do ;) I've owned over 30 F series trucks. First was a 1963 F100. A bunch of 70's and 80's then in the 90's and on I would switch from Ford to Dodge / Ram every other year. As I stated the 2021 F150 Platinum 4X4 Powerboost was one of the worst in quality. Mostly the Powerboost...
  19. What did you do TO your F-150 today?

    I am :) I've probably owned more F-series trucks than you've been alive. ;) This last one was far from my favorite though. I wasn't about to get another right now with zero improvements and missing parts.
  20. What did you do TO your F-150 today?

    Mine went bye-bye Thursday. Not the least bit sad about it. The GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate 1500 4X4 is a significant upgrade over my 2021.
