What is one thing you would like different about your trailvoy?

Self explanatory title lol

If I had to choose something different with my TB I might ask for a larger fuel tank. The 16 gallon tank gets me less then 300 miles on a full tank. Thats not bad but looking at my dads F 150 getting around 400 to the tank and my buddys Altima getting 400+, it would be nice to fill up less.
I'm usually not over a 1/4 tank though lol

So what would others which they would have done different?

I think they should have made a Z71 package, making it higher standing and tires pushed out a little bit more. And just a stupid one is the window controls. I have the 07 with the new controls where you have to lift the control up for the window wo go up. I'd prefer to have the older one where you push for up and down, really just like the look better.

I believe all vehicles are required to have the new style now.

I want total custom paint. With lots of layers of clear to hide scratches from branches and stuff.

Shaved, custom paint, and laying body


and to the OP all the newer TB's 05 and up come with the 22 gallon tank.. the smaller tank was in the earlier models and even it was an 18 gallon tank..


so to say you have a 16 gallon tank is pure blasphemy

16 US Gallons = 60.5 litres

I drove for three days on empty to the point I didn't want to risk it any longer... All I could get was 61 litres into my tank.

Thats 5 more litres than I could ever get into my sunfire?

So Yeah I wish I had a larger tank too.

A six speed tranny would be cool!

And a better PCM that can handle boost.

Hmmm... I can get two out of three if I upgrade to a newer one.

Other than that I like it just the way it is... aside from the headlights on the Envoy.. I would change them to a slightly more squared traditional GMC look.
