    Wondering if I should have insurance replace the windshield or take it to the dealership. I want it replaced the same as it is now (minus the crack)

    How insurance companies handle glass claims seems to vary widely. Ask your insurance company. The last glass claim I had, I was told to take it wherever I wanted. We have a local glass company with a great reputation. Insurance covered it 100%.

    Unless it’s been mentioned somewhere else...

    I thought you could not lock the vehicle from the outside with the engine running but if you lock the doors inside before opening the driver door you can get out and lock the door with the key that’s inside the fob.

    Works good when leaving my dog in the truck in the summer time.

    Perception. If it was poured away from you and you didn't know which was which, the can would taste better because it's fresher from being more protected from air and light. Beer might taste slightly different if drinking directly from the bottle or can, but ideally beer will taste its best when it is poured into a glass.

    I get what you’re saying. Been drinking beer for almost 40 years...an ice cold bottle is my favorite way.

    If your your battery on your fob dies. Step on your brake, and pass your fob near the PTS button, dash lights up and you can start your truck

    Thanks for sharing this. Works on my 2016.

    On a related note, how far can the keyfob be from the truck and it remain running? Or is it best to simply leave the keyfob inside?

    Yes sir!

    No I keep the fob in my pocket:thumbsup: I was pretty far away and it still kept running. It will run until the fuel gives out if you let it lol.

    The vehicle will never turn off regardless of how far away the key is. I can see why they did it this way... In case the key battery dies driving down the road. I think it'd be nice if it prevented shifting out of park if the key isn't inside.

    Use a proper beer glass, not one of those cheapass 'american' pint glasses. Those are not beer glasses.

    Please educate me. I don't know what a proper beer glass looks like. Seriously, not being a wise ass.
