My brand new GMC is a nice truck and I got a great deal. It’s the first NEW truck I’ve ever purchased. Bells, whistles, doo-dads, dingle berries, satellite radio and four wheel drive. That last part is what I’m having the most trouble with. In GM’s infinite wisdom/delusion they seem to have made the world’s LOWEST 4X4 pickup. Don’t believe me? Let me explain.
Being a bit of an engineering-minded car geek, I like to tinker. However, with respect to having a warranty, I needed to restrict my tinkering to either factory-approved mods and pieces, or just throw all of that payment-offsetting goodness when it comes to repairs. Playing the grown-up, I opted for the former over the latter, and developed a cold air intake solution using budget-friendly, mostly factory parts.
