Replacement Bowties-Just Installed-PICS!

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 12:14 PM
Hi all,   Pretty juiced about my new bowtie emblems!  Got em on ebay for about $160 for the pair (front and rear).  They came in the mail the other day and I just put em on the truck yesterday.  Install was very easy, but the emblems use double-sided tape only.  I really hope they hold on throughout the life of the truck..   Emblems are robust and heavy.  Much more substance to them than the stock gold colored ones.  They do protrude out from the vehicle a bit though, and the stock ones didn't.  No biggie.  Only issue I can see down the road is the whole double sided tape thing.  Will pray the glue/tape holds!!!  Excuse the dirty truck!  lol

18" Rim with 6" Suspension Lift

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 10:40 AM
Hi,   Any of you run 18" rims with a 6" suspension lift?    I am getting my lift installed today and I decided to stay with my 18" rim. The dealer told me that I might need to install spaces since the rims are too small for the lift and the tire will rub against the spindle.   Could anyone confirm this?   Thanks   HAchez

Got a binding sensation...

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Today, 07:43 AM
Getting a binding (wobble) sensation, only very slight and only approaching full lock. It feels like a axle (knuckle) joint seizing, but there are no axle joints. Imagine being in 4wd but only getting a small fraction of the normal tire scrub on hard roads. I thought maybe tires? But I've had the AT3s on for two months now...although limited driving. Mileage is around 15/17mpg combined/highway. No odd noises. I haven't tried 4wd in a while...supposed to snow today, maybe I'll take a spin in the backyard. Thoughts?

Rear turn signal failure

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 07:19 AM
I have a 2014 Silverado and recently had a rear turn/tail/brake light bulb go out and I have searched everywhere for a 7444 bulb for replacement and only found led replacements. When I replaced it with and led bulb I get a blinker failure message and then the lights rapidly blink. I have tried a decoder and that did nothing. Anyone know where to get 7444 replacement bulbs besides maybe the dealership?

Flowmaster Cat-Back Exhaust-American Thunder Series-(40 Series Muffler

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 22 Nov 2014
Hi all,   I just purchased a Flowmaster cat-back exhaust for my truck and I haven't installed it yet because I'm a little afraid of what the effects might be.  Initially I was psyched to order the system because I was getting it at a pretty good price, and read some good reviews about it.  Unfortunately, I'm a little scared about a few things: 1-"drone" (still not exactly sure what this is), 2-Outside noise (will it be overly loud and bother my neighbors?), and 3-Cabin noise.  One of the selling points of the new Silverado is it's excellent ride quality.  Some say it rides like a luxury sedan due to the amazingly quiet cabin.  It doesn't ride like your typical truck.  It's silky smooth and nice!     I wonder if the addition of the exhaust will be bothersome to me in the cabin?  For example: Will it be too noisy for me?  Can I still make bluetooth calls comfortably?  Will I be bothered by the "rumble"?      Does anybody have any thoughts about this?  Anyone ever had the flowmaster american thunder series?

Anyone else tired of seeing GM's getting bashed in comparison arti

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 24 Nov 2014
Hi all,   And again just read an article comparing Gm, Ford and Dodge and seems everything goes against the GM. First of all they tested in high altitude and both the Ford and Dodge are turbo-ed engines which will give them an advantage. And not only that, even if the GM was faster in a test the person in the article kept on mentioning how slower it felt than others so it still loses.   Just something I have to get off my chest: Throttle response is not equal power! No one who uses a truck to do any kind of work wants one who will start spinning as you touch the gas pedal on any moderately slippery surface.   Here is the article I just read: http://www.motortren...rado/specs.html

Swapping to 6.2 w/ 8speed after warranty

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust 22 Nov 2014
I am thinking I want to swap my 2014 CCRB(crew cab regular bed) 5.3 to the 6.2 8 Speed after my warranty is up. Does anybody know how this would go with all the electronic computers in the truck? Can they be reprogrammed to work with the 6.2 and 8speed, or do i need to get their respective ecm and trans controller for it to work? And will the 5.3 engine harness be compatible, or does the 6.3 use a completely different harness and different sensors? Plug and play also? I figured by the time my extended warranty is over, the 6.2 and 8speed should be fairly cheap by then. I may not beable to get as good of a deal on a new truck if it is the same body style, and if it is, I highly doubt there would be enough change for me to want it. And my resale value probably wouldn't be much either.

Big Tires, or Big Wheels?

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 22 Nov 2014
I'm pretty stuck here on deciding a direction for the look of my truck.   Anybody have any tips on this?  I always see lifted trucks on the road with big-offroad tires.  I really like this look.  BUT, I also like the look of a truck with nice big rims 20-22".  Normally I don't see the bigger rims with huge/thick offroad tires on them.  Does anybody have any advice for me here?  Which direction did you go?  Or can I get a big rim, AND a big offroad tire?  Not sure how that'd look..  ??

Trying to consolidate shake/vibration data

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 15 Nov 2014
I'm sure nobody wants a new thread on this issue.  What I'm trying to do, after looking at 240+ pages in the pinned thread, is to consolidate data. I'd really like to be able to look through this in the end and easily find common denominators (or not).  I don't want to turn it into a DISCUSSION about the topic but find out:   1. Exactly what truck config you have.  IE make, model, year, driveline, cab config, bed config, factory wheel size and rear end ratio. Modified suspension or not. 2. A short list of what, if anything, the dealer has tried to replace with number of time to each item (2) for example 3. Where you stand today.  Is it fixed? Is it not fixed?  No rants or swearing off GM for as long as you live just if it's fixed or not. 4. General speeds/conditions the problem happens.  Load or no load.  Any passengers   I want to see if there is any common data to be had and frankly the other thread is pages and pages of wheel balancing, tire complaining/blaming, chiming in on others problems, etc.  Nothing wrong with that but I'm trying to just get cold hard facts.  I have a 14 Sierra with 1100 miles and noticed mine does right at 55mph and then again right at 80mph....
