5/13/2015
NHTSA recently issued a warning to those that live in the salt states about rusting brake lines.  The upshot of the multi-year study behind the advisory was that GM and other truck makers installed brake lines that did indeed suffer corrosion in the states with rough winters where salt is used on roadways.  The corrosion caused failures and accidents.  These were documented in the report.  GM later changed its brake line design to add a more robust protective layer.  That is likely the most cost effective way to prevent trouble, but is it the best way?

So long folks

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 04:02 AM
Traded in my Silverado yesterday on a leftover 2014 Ram 1500. The Chevy was a good truck, I did'nt have too many complaints about it. Just wanted a nicer truck and the Dodge has all the bells and whistles. My Chevy was a glorified work truck. So I want to say thanks to the forum for all the good info I've gotten here during my stay.

Auxiliary gas tank for better mileage?

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Today, 01:01 AM
Hey guys, got any recommendations for auxiliary gas tanks that are decently priced? Or hell, ways to increase my mileage? I'm getting 11.5mpg right now in my 07 Sierra Classic 2500 with just over 116k and I've got an hour commute to work every day. She's a stock truck running the correct size Kumho Road Venture ATs. Is there any maintenance I should do? It seems like my only option right now is to either get a tank for the bed of the truck, a programmer or sell it and try to get a diesel...or one of them new 5.0 Fords since I hear they can get 20 lol.

SUMO SPRINGS INSTALLED. READY FOR POOL IN THE BED!

Trailers, Hitches, & Towing Today, 12:41 AM
Ok ok. Calm down. I've done the math, I know my payload. I will cliterally (yup I just combined two like words to make you laugh) be within 100lbs of my max Payload once I add about 200 gallons of water for WMZQ fest next weekend. The issue is I will also have 3 people, chairs and a cooler in the cab. This will exceed my allowable payload and since I have a 2"-1" leveling kit, I'm already sitting not as raked as a stock Silverado. So I ordered some SumoSprings and installed them. They look about 35 mins to install and everything went smooth. I'll take pics of the truck bed pool and I might just have the other ride seperate so I won't exceed my payload. Does anyone else have experience with these "springs?"

So I've been looking for a primered face bar to paint and replace the chrome piece on my front bumper. I've found one for a reasonable price. But on the model it says it fits its listed Denali. Idk if the same one would fit my sle model or not. Anyone painted this yet? Not trying to paint over the chrome one that came with the truck. Also...if anyone has painted their grill shell I'd like to know how. Trying to color match it as well. Thanks!

Ok so here is the deal. I bought a 2015 Silverado crew cab Z71. got a leveling kit installed at dealer. Don't like it.

My first tow...

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 08:55 PM
A refresher - 2014 Silverado HC Crew Cab, Short Bed w/6.2 with 4,500 miles - My trailer is a 24' Carson Funrunner weighing 5,300# dry (800# tongue weight)- I had a HD Fat Bob in it and the water tanks were all dry. I was thoroughly impressed, I had towed this trailer in the past with a 2000 LS with the 285hp 5.3 and a 3:42....It struggled with power and the weight before on anything other than flat land. Though todays' trip was only 25 miles, the truck is a BEAST! And the trailer brake controller was as good or better than any aftermarket unit I've used. In August I will drag it up to Knoxville, IA (1420 mile roundtrip), and I am anxious to see how it does.

Factory Brake Controller - After the fact with Tow pkg

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 25 May 2015
I searched the forum before I posted.   Didn't see anything.   My truck has the 3.42 gears, factory "tow pkg" but no brake controller or hill decent control.   I have the 7pin and 4 pin harness connections on the bumper and factory hitch.  I'm looking at buying a good size boat (25-30' Donzi or Scarab deep Vee bottom offshore type) and will at least need the brake controller.  I watched the trailer video on installing the P3 and they plugged an aftermarket unit right into a junction box under the driver's foot well.  How hard would it be to install the factory brake controller on the dash?  I like the idea of not having a box screwed to my knee panel and the OEM controller allows the gain to show up on the DIC.  Pretty neat.   Thanks in advance.

My truck doesn't have an autodimming rearview mirror

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 31 May 2014
I just realized that today after 4 months of ownership. It's my fault though. I should have checked closer instead of assuming a $44,000 truck would come with that like my $32,000 2007 truck did. Sometimes GM you really know how to stick it to your customers, especially the loyal ones. Anyway I'm done ranting. Now it's time to look for an aftermarket mirror.

Adding Aftermarket Sub/Amp

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 03 Sep 2013
I did this upgrade awhile back, but have been really busy and never got around to posting. I know there's already a topic on the K2's Bose system, but that one discusses models with the bench seats. My upgrade was done on an SLT with bucket seats and factory Bose sub under the center console. Selected pics are posted at the end.     After removing the center console, I discovered the Bose sub (it's only 6") but not the Bose amp. I guessed it was somewhere buried behind the dash, so I decided to simply hook up a Hi/Lo Signal Converter to the Bose sub's input lines to save some time/effort. It provided a very clean, strong signal but is only suitable for adding an aftermarket sub, since the signal to the Bose sub is low freq only. If you choose to do this, the blue wire is "+" and the gray wire is "-".   After running all my wiring under the carper and re-installing the center console, I moved on the mounting my amp. Removed the rear seats and discovered... the Bose amp mounted to the rear wall of the truck. If you look under the center of the seat, you'll see swiss-cheese-holes in the insulation. The amp is just up and left of those openings. I don't have any info on the K2's amp wiring but I'm sure eventually PAC...

Rough Idle... not according to dealer

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 19 May 2015
Once my truck is warm and I come off the highway to a stop light I get a rough idle that kind of cycles. You can see the RPMs drop maybe 100 (truck kind of shudders) for a couple seconds and climb back up. Wait a few seconds and it will do it again. Dealer says it normal. I say BS.
