My Chevy TB is important to me because it is part of my lifestyle. It's what I do and it takes me places I want to go. Last week it was the Grand Canyon. We visited the North Rim. A heavily trafficked destination for people from all over the world. But even inside a National Park my TB helped me get away from people and see the canyon from places most people can't get to. We took a trail to a place called Point Sublime. It was an easy trail for a TB but rated moderate by the guide info. The point is its a trail, it is just rough enough to leave everyone behind. On a Sunday afternoon in one of the most famous parks in the world we saw a total of 3 other vehicles! It was an incredible afternoon spent with friends. The pictures are from the places we saw from the trail.

Kind Regards,

Steve

Could it be that the sliding back window is an option that just wasn't included on mine? or is it a mistake????
The sliding rear window comes with the upgraded package in the LT. My 2020 LT didn’t have one but my 2021 has one.

I have the blackout package so I didn't get the sliding window in my LT
I think it comes in the convenience package 2. My other one only had the convenience package 1 so it didn’t have the rear sliding window. Ionly traded because I wanted more options and they were offering me more for my 2020 then what I paid for it and I only had it 10 months so when they got the one I have now in I couldn’t resist lol

Yesterday I did 110 miles off road in blistering 116 degree desert heat. The Chevy wheeled like a boss.
Engine temp never noticeably fluctuated even working truck hard with AC on. Trany temp stayed at 177 most of the time but did hit 199 once when working hard in 4WD low.
This is my 5th 4WD rig. My last one was a Chevy Avalanche so I am used to wheeling full size rigs. BUT...my leveled front end and the big hood on the Boss has made for a few heart stopping moments. This thing climbs like a champ. When your on the steep you have to pick your line far ahead of the wheels and hit the line. It's not a fault, it comes with wheeling a full size rig. You can't see over that hood. When it gets crazy is on a steep breakover when all you see is your hood and sky. Yesterday I hit one of those and after the front wheels broke the ledge I came down on my rock sliders and broke traction. The truck hung in there and scraped along to pull me up onto the ridge. The whole time I could not see anything but hood hood and sky. I was by myself and it was a little more excitement than I wanted but I love to do it. My life has been spent in the Arizona desert and the Rocky Mountains. Those are my stomping grounds.

Some other notes. By nature I am that grumpy older guy that scoffed at first over some of the tech. Like "Who needs hill descent? I will control the vehicle myself." Now, I LOVE that button. It flat out works! It blows my mind at how good it is as keeping the wheels rolling without lockup. I spent years learning proper descent control. Now you can push a button and be pretty confident the truck will help you out if you don't have years of off road experience yet.

The 10 speed transmission put this truck in a whole new league. I tow a 30 foot RV. It is stellar for that. When I am off road I run in manual and work the column button like it is a paddle shifter. Incredible performance. It would be cool if it was a paddle shifter...

If your a lurker here to see what owners have to say I say buy one. This truck is everything I need it to be. It's my work truck, my tow vehicle, and out of the box it is a very capable off roader.

Here is a video from a few days of 4wheeling in Moab. This is cuts from a few different trails. We were able to complete the entire Fins and Things trail. It is rated by the guide books as difficult and not recommended for long wheelbase vehicles. It pushed my stock Trail Boss to it's limit clearance wise. Other than that it performed incredibly well. But we did take some hits. My trail mods are front end leveling kit and rock sliders. Without those I would have torn up the truck. Even with those I tore up a slider and exhaust tips. But it was worth it to spend time on an epic 4wd adventure in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This truck wheeled with the Jeeps and Razors and held its own. It sticks like glue on the climbs and descents. I am thrilled to be putting this thing through it's paces. So far it has done nothing but impress me with it's capabilities. I was concerned about the sidewalls on the Duratracks but they were fine and man did they stick. I said before I air down to 20 lbs but not anymore. I'm sticking to 25 lbs, the truck is too heavy to go less than that. I can't wait for them to wear out so I can go bigger and better.

Kind Regards
Steve

Had to replace a rock slider. There are always questions about side steps. It is a personal choice about what suits your needs the best. Many steps and nerf bars take away from off road capability and even cause damage. In my case I run Go Rhino Dominator D6 rails. I love them because they are a combination true rock slider and step. They have a rail that covers the rocker panel and a step tube that sits slightly higher. They have prevented damage on my rocker panels many times. They take the hit so the truck doesn't. But in this case things got a little out of hand and I bent up the step tube. I don't care what the bottom of the rails look like but this was visible damage so I replaced it. Not the rails fault, I had a ton of weight riding on it. I highly recommend the Dominators. I bent it around 1:40 in the video above.

Kind Regards,

Steve

Camping in Williams, AZ last weekend. Trail Boss continues to take me places I love to go and do what I love to do.

I had to include shot of tree full of Turkey Vultures waiting for the Ford Raptor guys.
