That being said, I replaced the stock antenna with a 3" stubby that I bought at Pep-Boys for about $13....

If they are doing the tune up including new spark plugs for $107, I would be jumping on that.

I like having the oil changed at the dealer, it doesn't cost any more than anyplace else. (except doing it myself)

Ramzaq could be correct, the prior owner could have disconnected the UConnect Voice Microphone when he removed his add-ons.

I just hope that we are having the same conversation in 2024. :)

My truck is still shiny and new looking.

I have a lot of towing trips to the coast and lake and a lot of hauling still to go.

It takes about an hour or 2 to do the install.
