    Who Wore it Better?

    I think this comparison is weird.. As some have stated.. the XT5 vs Blazer would be a better comparison, but again.. the purpose would still come into play. Even more obvious tho.. is that the only reason one would make this comparison is that they are both coming from a GM division and on a similar platform. For me.. the XT5 for the luxury, and wouldn't even consider an XT4 due to the size relative to my size. The Blazer I would choose as a Daily Driver. No different than people did with the Impala vs the XTS.. or owing a Camaro and a CTS. I kno a guy with an Escalade and a Tahoe. One he uses for luxury purposes.. the other is literally his work truck on sites (he owns a construction co) and Daily Driver. Looks wise.. still the XT5. I think it is gorgeous, but I have said that since day one. The XT4's styling by comparison is even sexier, using the Escala's front homage. The Blazer is more "badass" utilizing the Camaro's looks. It in essence looks like a 4door CUV Camaro. Its appeal will be to those individuals who want sport over lux. Both, if not all three vehicle ACTUALLY would be insane to incorporate actual Hi-Po versions. None need a V8 really. But the TT 3.0L or even 3.6L would be very desirable
  3. Yup. Found this out the hard way back in March when I literally had to call a tow truck (wench) to get me out of a drenched mud field in my yard due to getting stuck with 24s and obvious summer tires on the Yukon. I called the end of Winter too early and made the change. Winter ended up ending in late April imo LOL. 24s on summer tires are NO GOOD for MUD and SNOW.. let alone off roading Point is that at best.. the H2 was engineered in 1997-98. Meaning that it is essentially 20 years old. Maybe its time for them to either rebuild the entire vehicle of sell and get something else
  4. Perhaps.. and I mean PERHAPS.. your GF's parents bought a lemon. THAT HAPPENS.. even with a GM product. I owned the GMT800 Yukon SLT from 2000 to 2006. Put about 150K on the ODO.. In the summer of 2005 I decided I would put the 4.10 diff in from a wrecked Denali. Did it myself.. but that was the only time I remember being under the truck. In Late '06 bout my 2007 Tahoe LTZ and drove from that time til 2014.. 8 years.. one issue with the Air Shocks, which I replaced myself with Ergnotts version and saved a lot versus GM parts. Got the current 2015 when my Tahoe hit 120k I think The H2 was based on the GMT800. Plenty of them still rolling around including my older brother's 2006 which has 170K on the ODO last I checked in Dec

    Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Drops A New Turbo-Four Into 2019 Silverado

    ^^^ This was essentially my question as well to @Drew Dowdell. DO U know the difference in weight between the Silvy and the F150? I'm seeing that the 2019s should come in at about 450-500lbs lighter than the previous, which started at about 4500lbs.. so it appears that the Silvy should be literally the same weight as the F150

    But why.. if this is rated on Regular octane and not doing what Ford normally does and rate their HP/TQ on Premium. This normally equates to a 20HP loss if U use 87 in a Ecoboost Mustang for instance

    This is cool.. but still.. what in GM marketing allows them to have an engine that is still 15Hp/27 ft lb of torque less than the 2.7L Ford F150? I sure it was the benchmark.. What's the weight difference? Is this.. like other GM turbos a 87 Octane figure?

    How is it relevant that U've screwed a toe hook in few cars but not a C7 CORVETTE? The C7's Tow Hook connection (screw in) both front and rear are very difficult to lign up due to the angle of the vehicle. There are literally videos on Youtube that verify what I say.

    @Cubical-aka-Moltar... Man.. I have no desire to have a front tag on my Vette.. as I don't have one even on my Vseries. The MD law suggests that if the holes are not drilled already by the dealer upon delivery then one is not necessarily required. Even on the off chance I've been get pulled over for it.. each time the cop let me off with a warning, even after having it happen before. On my '08, '14 Vettes.. on my '09, '12 VSeries.. never a plate. @ccap41 as always U have to come with something..LOL.. to your commentary about how easy it is to "It wouldn't take any time to walk to the truck, grab it out, and screw it in." Obviously U've never had to do it.. it is not an easy task due to the way the car is angled and the threads hae to be perfectly aligned. That being said.. this tow hook is not a Stock tow hook and the RED portion (HOOK) can actually be left off with the Black portion (shaft) can stay in unnoticed unless one were to get up seriously close and get on their knees to inspect. Lastly... I had it on only for the pic.. and took it off when I finished. NOW THO.. I think I might put it back on just because I feel like it

    Been out for about a month now.. just loving her. Supposed to go to a car show in Ocean City MD this weekend but the rain is supposed to go on for another damn week. This is at Sagamore Pendry in Baltimore. I pulled up and the Paparazzi showed up. LOL

    Considered... but probably won't do unless something were to go up
  15. And while it’s hard to see the final numbers in the video, the time slip doesn’t lie. The Corvette absolutely slaughtered the Demon, laying down a time of 10.20 at 137 mph, while the Demon lumbered to an 11.59 at 134 mph. Judging by the MPH and the poor 1.95 60-foot time, the Demon was fighting some serious traction issues. But either way you cut it, the Corvette simply outperformed the Demon. http://www.dragzine.com/news/corvette-zr1-destroys-dodge-demon-sets-world-record-the-same-night/
