  1. My passenger side LTZ headlight was $250. Driver side was $700. Just saying. With Denali I’d expect an even higher difference. Use eBay, FB market place, CL, and car-part. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Unfortunately you’re looking at the trucks present value now (as if you were going to trade it in tomorrow). In order to accurately track a trade in price, you would have to deduct x amount for depreciation and also deduct x amount for the mileage you’re going to drive. You’d be looking at below $30k easily next year. Probably in the $25-27k range. I traded in a fully loaded 2016 LTZ Z71 Midnight Edition with 40k miles 3 months ago and my highest trade in value was $39k (see my post before to see how many dealerships I went to price this trade in). Dealership said they would prob auction it for around $40k. They got my business on my new truck and made profit up there. Having 4x4 def helps your resale though (as long as you’re actually using it and not paying for a 4WD truck/insurance just because.) With the new model Silverados coming out next year, I honestly don’t see how you could think you’re ahead on the loan at this time. Definitely not trying to rag on you for this, just trying to explain/don’t want you to be mislead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Swap in a new muffler for a cheap way. Add a Borla catback exhaust for a more expensive way. Either way, should be louder/throatier than a stock 6.2L exhaust. Air Raid MIT tube might even help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Plug n play. Phillips 921. Believe there are two of them up there. Torx bit to get the 3rd brake light out. 2 screws. Will take all of 30 seconds. You can replace your reverse lights in your tail lights with these as well. If it doesn’t power on, just flip it. The polarity was wrong on a couple and I just flipped them the other way and all good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes sir, I was much like the OP in my first 2 trucks with not getting ahead on the payments. Traded in my 16 for a 17. The 16 was valued higher so I also didn’t have to pay any tax. Will stay in this one till 2021 now and pick up the new CCSB’s hopefully right before the next model update comes out. The 2016 e-assist models were only for California I believe. 2017-2018 they’ve opened up to Texas and more customers I think. Went to check out a 2017 CCSB LT in Bastrop. Drove it and it had bad vibrations. The e-assist model was right beside it and had a sticker of $500 more than the one I was there to check out. So we hopped into it and test drove and it was great. It’s all about when you’re buying/trading I’ve noticed. I got a smoking deal on my 2017 because that was the same week they were rolling out the 2018 Silverados crew cabs. Went to 5 dealerships in person, called 6 over the phone, and emailed a little over 10+ around Texas and surrounding areas. If the dealership isn’t giving you what you want, move onto the next one with the quote they gave you and try to get a better deal!!! Covert out of Bastrop is where I got mine. Check them out for yourself. We buy our fleet trucks there as well. Roughly 20 2500HD models per year. Didn’t get a discount for that though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. No actually you didn’t get a good deal. Happen to be 4x4? I got my brand new 2017 CCSB for $30k out the door. Mines also an e-assist model with 8 speed tranny. Had 8 miles on it when I bought it. $32k with brand new wheels and tires. (Methods and KO2 and then I sold stock for $700 cash). Came with soft tonneau cover as well. Yours has gone through 2 years of depreciation now with 26k miles on it. I would’ve invested in a 17 brand new. Too good of deals on new trucks on the lot compared to used!!

  7. Would love to see a pic. Going to do this now before I install my color matched blue grille and headlights [emoji1360] Thanks for the info, TX troopers were the only one I was worried about!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So you drilled into the grill mesh for attachment of the bolt lights? Would like to see where you drilled. Definitely interested in doing this now. In Texas, these lights can’t be on while driving or can they? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Why Don't You Turn This feature Off on Your Dumb Phone

    Just to make you angry :-) Honestly I forget to uncheck the box 95% of the time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I do have the new 2017 headlights, but I just undid the clips on the outside with a flathead screwdriver and slowly pulled from every corner. You can feel the 3M tape start to come off. When it started to peel off on a corner I moved to the next one. Did it for all 4 corners and finished! It took me 45 minutes to clean all the 3M leftover tape off the headlight/trim though Haha Glad you got this color matched finally going. Making me get more anxious for my blue!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Looks good! Popping the headlight trim off took me all of 30 seconds. Did it with my hands gently, didn’t even need to use fishing line. Then just add 3M tape and done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Pretty sure PGamboa is helping everyone out for free and selling a PnP harness soon...there’s also a thread with 1k+ replies on how to do this. I’ll pass on donating to this fund. Why don’t you guys help someone local out who purchased a center console for their truck for free? That way you’d post the content online for people to see with your marketing, and then one happy customer gets theirs installed for free (instead of all of us chipping in to pay for yours). Unfortunately I’ve got an e-assist model and don’t think this is possible for me with my lithium batteries under my bench seat.
  13. I’m leveled and running 285/70/17 E-rated KO2s. You’re also leveled running an all terrain tire. What size tires are you running? Maybe switch to a LT tire depending on your current size? Are you in stop and go traffic a lot? Is your front valence still attached to the bottom of your front bumper? Do you have any extra cab/bed weight you’re carrying? Currently I average 18 mpg with 70% highway/30% city driving. With straight highway I’m at 20-21 mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’d really recommend ditching the chrome bezels and get a painted set and sand them or get a primed set off a WT/new purchase. In 6-9 months you’d start to see the paint flake. Headlights should be plug and play, just have to install a resistor on the turn signal wire to not get hyper flash. Believe it was a 3 ohm resistor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m doing this exact upgrade. Just make sure the headlight bezel is painted/primed already if you plan on color matching and getting rid of chrome. I bought my headlight harness from PGamboa. Works flawlessly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
