It's a common issue it seems. At least judging by the posts I see on Facebook of guys having the issue of the road life going really fast (in the dic, not the actual pads).

You should call the dealership and explain your situation. They may have an after hours drop off and rental pick up.
When I was working I had a warranty issue but worked a twelve hour day.
They allowed me to drop off the truck on the weekend and they provided a loaner rental for me to drive.
Or talk to your employer, ask to come in late one day so as to drop off your truck and pick up a loaner.
Or wait until something else pops up?
Your call your truck, But I have a 2012 2500 with 44k on it and the brakes still look like 90% front and back. Oh, And I tow a 6k pound trailer for camping.

now that you mention it jake... one of the local dealers here will not only give you a loaner, but they'll pickup your ride from work, drop the loaner, and return your vehicle to you when its complete (and pickup the loaner).

my brother had a warranty issue on a lease, and because of his schedule when it happened, thats how he got his vehicle in for service. It was thru Feldman IIRC.

And you bought a new truck. Request a loaner. Most dealerships give out a loaner if you need warranty work performed

I agree. And it can be disabled, which is what I may do.

I just turned off the display so I don't have to see it go by when flipping thru the displays.

I have the same issue on my trail boss. My previous Silverado was lifted and made it well past 45k before needing pads. I'm taking mine to the dealership.

I have almost 4000 miles on my GMC and I still have 70 some percent on the front. and 80 something on the back.
I would take it in and do some bit## ing.

I've always gotten a loaner when I take my truck in for service or warranty work.

I didn’t even know this was a thing on these new trucks lol learn something everyday...

How do these sensors work? Does it actually measure the width of the pads or does it use driving habits to estimate wear on pads?
