    Default Topkick/Kodiak service issues

    I'm a new Topkick owner....I have no history with these midsize trucks. Anything I should be aware of so I can avoid any disaster?

    Welcome to the site! Have you researched for any technical service bulletins or recalls for your Topkick?

    I have not heard anything about the Topkick, but I don't own one either.

    The Topkick is like a 2-ton truck that calls it Medium-duty commercial. I've seen these rigged up for extended-travel service towing large trailers (conventional or 5th wheel) or even hauling a camper body on them. I suppose they have the same types of issues that other commercial grade vehicles have, maintenance will cost more, but it should last for an extended period of time if it's maintained well, even 500k miles or more.

    I'm trying to convince the wife that I need something like this. It's not going over well.

    I still get people eyeballing me as I go around town, I happen to park it in front of a Chevy dealer the other day because the post office as next to the dealer and within minutes four sales guys were check my truck out. There isn't a day that somebody doesn't have a comment.
