    This is a picture of what you see as soon as you turn your blinker on. Switches automatically. Pretty cool feature for GMC

    4) New long block.

    Five out of five have had these issues. Four received new long blocks and one a new cam/lifters. (under 60K miles) These engines see severe service and have failed miserably. FCA is well aware of the design flaw in their lifters. Heck, even our AFM 5.3 Tahoe's outlive the Hemi's twice over.

    I could make a list like that with my GM experiences Bshort. That doesn't mean there are millions and millions of them out there doing just fine.

    You’ve had 5 engine failures in 5 GM vehicles under 60k miles? Scratch GM off your list

    Bullshit flag just went up. Try changing your oil! Strange how all my Hemis have been fine.

    Just got the truck and have not towed with it yet.

    Went out to garage and hooked up the trailer.

    Wow. Nice feature

    Thanks

I can see in my boat like on the deck a ton better but directly behind the boat is still too far too see detail
    Actually I wasn't as worried about what is directly behind as what might be in lanes on either side of you. Seeing the picture of what happens when you turn on the blinker takes care of that.

    The Ram trucks with cameras have views to the side also. Do they come on automatically when you turn on the blinkers, or is that blind spot protection just some sort of flashing light?

    Just wait for the tick sound that sounds like an exhaust leak.

    Blind spot protection is a ding type of sound. I have 360* camera on mine but it's just an overhead shot when you're backing up, and you can't get 360* camera with tow mirrors.

    So are you saying that on the Ram turning the blinker on does not activate a camera to that side?

    On my Laramie it does not. I can’t say for a fact on the higher models that it does or doesn’t.

    Always been a Ford man and still am.
    The reality of today's competitive truck market is ALL big three brands offer great trucks that are reliable and powerful.
    You can really go wrong with any of them.

    After thinking about this a bit I have a question for you. How is this different than what you see in the mirror?

    Probably about as much as a backup camera if you have faith
