  1. What did you do to your "other" car (aka musclecar) today

    I went to the new Summit Racing store in Arlington yesterday and walked away with a whole list of stuff I want to get for this thing. I've got new wheels in the garage so the first thing I'm going to do is order new tires this week for them.
  2. I live in Forney and work in Greenville so it was probably me.
  3. From what I was told by someone that saw the trucks at the State Fair, the bowtie in the steering wheel is silver and not gold as well. I'll take a look at them on Monday when I go.
  4. Thanks. I can tell you that they do look fantastic on DOB. Our parts manager drives a DOB Silverado and added them to his truck. They look great. No idea when they'll become available again. Our accessories rep did say that GM was looking at doing an accessory version of them so I'm hoping that they are available soon.
  5. I was able to get a set of these before they went on back order. I love them! They're really dark blue. So dark that I thought they were black when I opened the box. Part #s 84149652 -Front 84149654 -Rear I don't know when they'll come off of backorder but keep checking with your local dealer if you want them. Our accessories rep did tell us that GM was looking at doing an accessory version so hopefully they'll be available soon.
  6. 84149652 -Front 84149654 -Rear
  7. Factory 265/65R18 Duratracs. They came with the wheels so I won't go bigger until I wear these out.
  8. Yep, I want to get black lugs too.
  9. The bowties are available for order. They are on backorder now though. We received 2 of the rears and have 2 fronts that should arrive today. Be aware that inside, they look black. They are actually a very dark blue. You can see the blue in direct sunlight. I used the flash on my phone in the first pic. Normal lighting in the 2nd.
  10. Just got a new '17 on Friday. This is my 3rd 14+ Silverado but my first Z71. Traded a '16 Colorado Z71 for this. Just didn't like having a small truck as much as I thought I would. Adding a spray in liner today and tint later in the week. Also adding Midnight Edition wheels. Leveling kit later. Oh and I'm adding the Centennial Edition bowties. We got one of them in this morning and they're very dark blue, almost black. Should look great on most trucks.
  11. So it's on the textured part of the door? Could be that the textured material under the paint is causing the issue. I would definitely take it to the dealer and see what they say.
  12. I did the hose clamp mod and it worked like a charm. $5 and 10 minutes and it's fixed. As of now, I'd recommend just doing this rather than going to the dealer and having them do something that might not fix it. Obviously the bulletin repair isn't going to work for everyone but it seems like the hose clamp mod will.
