The mid sizers overall don't seem to be the depreciation proof assets. Looking at the used market some of the Colorados are pretty cheap
I blame rebates.

When I got my truck, I was able to take advantage of $3500 in rebates.

Rebates are the devil for resale.
That's the name of the game, the MSRPs got inflated like crazy, so rebates bring it back down. Full sizers are inflated by 5 figures. A work truck is nearly 40k when it comes to full size trucks. Which is insanity.

Yeah, but my sales price was quite a bit lower. I only paid $32500. 7k is a lot of crow to eat. :(
He is getting quite a bit more than you on this trade number as well. 32k... vs 29... seems fair to me especially for a non :dillerman: hookup. That 7k was gone the second he drove it off the lot, that's just how this works. You can't :plac: cars for free, it is insanely expensive. You buy a car you commit to 5-10 years. In a sub 12 month transaction especially with sales tax that expense is somewhere around 10k.
Except in states that do give a tax credit on trades. Much lower in that case.

I usually play the game very well, my SS sedan cost me nothing, my Z06 made me 4k and there were other scenarios where I came out ahead or broke even, I understand in some situations there will be cases of drastic depreciation values but $7k is hilarious.

How much it cost me to get out of a 370z that depreciated from 44k down to 27. Still lots of room to fall have been leasing since it is cheaper for someone in my state that :plac: s

So Saturday I drove out to my dads place to install my HID kit. :truk: barelllyyyyyy fit in the garage so it was a pain in the ass to work around the bumper and get the housings out. I got the passenger side wired up for HID low beam and tested it out; light was awesome but I got a ton of buzzing from the relay harness. Looks like instead of running a full relay harness I can run can-bus adapters and run right off the factory low-beam wiring.

Wiring it up with can-bus would be way cleaner, which I would prefer. Need to look into where I can mount the ballasts a bit more too.

I put everything back to stock for the time being and ordered up some Philips upgraded H11s for now. I'll wait for a warmer day so I can keep the truck outside and take my time getting the HIDs installed right.

I too :wub: my :truk: drove it the other day to fill it up for :tits: and remembered how much fun it is.

I really think I may buy it at the end of the lease and slap a blower on it and make it my only vehicle.

No reason not to go that route, IMO. Blower. Leveled on 33's. Done.

I think the fact that Dplac runs his :truk: in Offroad mode probably helps eliminate any trans shudder.

It's most likely purposeful programming error (and possibly hardware failure after bad programming wears out components).

Blower would be :burnout: city doe. :excited:

You got it. That would be my perfect truck...only hang up is I want a Whorange one. We'll have to see what lease deals I can score in 8 months.

Once this comes out, I'm probably done :doe: ...

That's Waxer. I only run offroad mode when I'm having fun. Most of the time I don't touch anything and the truck is fine. I've tried to make it shudder and it won't. OR maybe it does and I don't notice it.

I think I could off the :poorvette: and run a blown, leveled, 33'd ZR2 as my only vehicle no problem.

I trust Edelbrock a bit more than Mallet...even if just due to the size of the company and the resources they can devote to development. Plus, the Edelbrock uses an Eaton blower, same as the stock LT4 blower. Pretty danged close to factory.

Judging by their other kits and what Mallet charges, I'd bet $7k.

I have a tough time with FI on an engine not designed for it. Way too much shit to go wrong. And the heat management isn’t there ....

All depends on the boost level and the tuning. That's why I'd lean toward a company that has more resources for tuning and development like Edelbrock. Edelbrock makes a ton of different supercharger applications. If they were making them unsafe for stock engines, they'd be out of business fast.

Hard to say if heat management is an issue or not. The cooling systems are pretty beefy on these trucks to achieve high tow ratings, it's probably adequate unless under heavy load.

The systems do have a water to air intercooler, which will help intake temps.
