  1. Clearly didn't read the entire post. I will happily install it directly into someone else's truck and Make a video on that. If they bring their truck and parts and let us do it during an afternoon. I work for kies motorsports and we have retrofitted hundreds of BMWs in the same way (www.kiesmotorsports.com). I am very familiar with taking interiors of vehicles apart and putting them back together. We just need someone near NJ that wants this done ;)
  2. This bumper is in excellent condition. PN 2294485789 There are minor surface scratches on the driver side (shown in 3rd pic - these should be able to polish out) and minor scratches on front (shown in 3rd and 4th pic - all except for the deeper one should be able to be polished out) There is no rust on this bumper except from a scratch on the front (this is a very thin scratch but the rust has dripped down onto the surface of the bumper and can be polished off) that just started to form surface rust. I have replaced this bumper with a painted one. I am located in southern NJ but I regularly travel between WV, DC, Baltimore, and NYC and I am willing to meet somewhere to complete the sale. This was taken off of the truck at approximately 65K miles and has normal wear and tear to expect. This retails for $490 + $125 S&H + tax. I am asking for $350. https://www.gmwarehousedirect.com/oem-parts/gm-front-bumper-22944859/?c=Zz1ib2R5JnM9YnVtcGVyLWFuZC1jb21wb25lbnRzLWZyb250Jmk9R0gxNDAwNTUmcj1sYXllcl8xJmE9Y2hldnJvbGV0Jm89c2lsdmVyYWRvLTE1MDAmeT0yMDE0JnQ9bHQmZT01LTNsLXY4LWZsZXg%3D
  3. Check out our video here where we compare the new Raptor Ranger that is hopefully coming to the United States (maybe for the 2020 model year!!) to its competitors; the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and the Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO. All three of these trucks are incredibly impressive trucks aimed at the compact truck market and offer some awesome specs and tech. Does that make them worth their $40,000+ price tags? That's for you to decide! We're just here to talk about about what these trucks offer to the off-road enthusiast and help convey everything we know about the Ford Ranger Raptor. Even though the Raptor Ranger has already been released in the Asia-Pacific automotive market, we know there will be some key changes to the powertrain before Ford brings the truck over to our U.S. coasts. Stay tuned to learn more about the Ranger Raptor, the Colorado ZR2, and the Tacoma TRD Pro.Here are all the known specs on the Asian Pacific Model and how it compares to the US Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Chevy Colorado ZR2. We compare the Drive Train, Transmission, Weight, offroading capabilities (suspension travel, breakover, departure, and approach angles), dimensions, price, and body configurations. If know any of the official specs on something that we left out or if you think we got anything wrong, please send us your source with the correction and we will update this sheet! Enjoy!
  4. Wheel Bearing Replacement. Learn how to diagnose and replace the wheel bearing hub assembly on almost any truck or car. This is a 2004 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra but the process will be very similar for replacing any wheel bearing hub assembly with an axle running through it. I was able to purchase a new hub assembly from AutoZone for $120. Duralast Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Frnt. We will provide a review of the wheel hub assembly after testing it for some time before recommending you to purchase it. Other wheel hub assembly companies: Moog, NAPA, Driveworks, Timken. Here is the Wheel Hub Assembly that I used: https://www.autozone.com/suspension-s... Similar Wheel hub assembly products available on RockAuto: https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/c... ****************************************** Required Tools • 15mm Wrench • 18mm Socket • 22mm Socket • 35mm Socket • Lug Wrench • A Piece of Pipe (for leverage) • Ratchet • Torque Wrench • Hammer • Chisel • Jack Stands
  5. Hi Guys, I tried to create the most comprehensive guide I could for changing rear differential fluid on our GM trucks. I have some specs for torque and capacity below. If you guys have additional torque specs I can add to this list please comment below and I will update this post! For 2014 -2018 1500 Silverado and Sierra (As well as same generation Tahoe, Suburban, and Escalade) 9.5" Rear ~ Approximately 5.5 Pints Cover Bolts Torque = 20ft-lbs, Fill Plug = 24 ft-lbs 8.6" Rear ~ Approximately 4.2 Pints Cover Bolts Torque = 20ft-lbs, Fill Plug = 24 ft-lbs Always verify capacities and torque specs with your owner's manual. ***************************************** Parts Used: Permatex 25238 The Right Stuff Grey Gasket Maker: http://amzn.to/2CQdcij (Grey is slightly easier to get apart) Permatex 25229 The Right Stuff Black Gasket Maker: http://amzn.to/2F2tLxw (Stronger Bond and Seal) Permatex 81182 Gear Oil RTV Gasket Maker: http://amzn.to/2F4aDiL (Cheaper option but takes longer to set) ***************************************** According to the GM Factory Owner's Manual the fluid may appear low because it is not filled to a certain level at the factory. To get an accurate reading of the fluid fill you need to let the vehicle sit on a level surface for an hour or more so that the fluid can return to the pumpkin from the axles. The following fill level are provided by GM: For all 4.3L and 5.3L 1500 Series applications, the proper level is 1.0 mm to 19.0 mm (0.04 in to 0.7 in) below the bottom of the fill hole, located on the rear axle. Add only enough fluid to reach the proper level. For 6.2L 1500 Series applications, the proper level is from 15 mm to 40 mm (0.6 in to 1.6 in) below the bottom of the fill plug hole, located on the rear axle. Add only enough fluid to reach the proper level. For all 6.0L 2500HD Series applications, the proper level is from 0 mm to 13 mm (0 to 0.5 in) below the bottom of the fill plug hole, located on the rear axle. Add only enough fluid to reach the proper level. For all 6.6L Duramax Diesel 2500HD Series applications and all 3500 Series applications, the proper level is from 17 mm to 21 mm (0.6 in to 0.8 in) below the bottom of the fill plug hole, located on the rear axle. Add only enough fluid to reach the proper level. This process is identical for: Chevy Silverado Chevy Tahoe Chevy Sububan GMC Sierra GMC Yukon
  6. I shot a video showing how to remove the headlight Bezel from his Chevy Silverado. This works for the 2014-2015 Silverado. This shows how to remove the bezel as well as the embedded trim piece inside of the bezel so you can wrap or paint the bezel. It is important to note that the Bezel cannot be purchased separately from the headlight - at least not directly from GM. If you guys find someone selling bezels directly please let us know in the comments! Stay tuned for a complete makeover of my truck's front end. If you need to know how to remove the headlights check out our how to video here: https://youtu.be/RUFUydJeYBg Tools and parts used in this video: Pick Tools: http://amzn.to/2Fcpjb3 Trim Removal Tools: http://amzn.to/2Ffq1EH Goo Gone: http://amzn.to/2Ecqzik 1/4" 3M mounting tape: http://amzn.to/2EcZYlk
  7. Cliff had a minor scrape with his 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and needs to replace some of the front end components. So we created a video showing how to remove your Grill, Headlights, and Front Bumper yourself! This is a complete step by step guide which will you show you every bolt and clip location that you will need to access and how to remove the components once they are free. This guide should also work for the GMC Sierra and be very similar for the Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade. We will be publishing another video soon which shows how to remove the bezel from around the factory headlight.
  8. This is our fastest video yet! Cliff shows how to remove the tail lights on his 2014 Chevy Silverado. This video also shows how to change your tail light bulbs. Get your replacement Tail Light Bulbs here: http://amzn.to/2Fg16lf This process will also apply to the 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Silverado and GMC Sierra. The same methods used in this video should also apply to the Tahoe, Saburban, and Yukon from the same generation.
  9. We are shooting a three part mini series showing how to change the gear lube on Cliff's 2014 Silverado with the 5.3L Eco Tec V8. The three videos will show how to change the front differential, transfer case, and rear differential fluids. This process also applies to the 2014 - 2018 Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra, Yukon, and Escalade All fluid is being changed to compatible Amsoil Gear Lube. Capacity: The front differential takes approximately 3 Pints according to amsoil. Per the GM owners manual: When the differential is cold, add enough lubricant to raise the level from 0 mm (0 in) to 3.2 mm (1/8 in) below the fill plug (1) hole. When the differential is at operating temperature (warm), add enough lubricant to raise the level to the bottom of the fill plug (1) hole. The torque spec for the fill and drain plug are 24ft-lbs. Fluids: GM recommends 80w-90 fluid while Amsoil recommends 75w-90. We contacted Amsoil and they assured us that 75w-90 was compatible with our differential. The GM Part number is 89021671, in Canada 89021672
  10. Very quick video showing how to replace your cabin air filter in the following vehicles: 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra 2015, 2016, and 2017, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Suburban GMC Yukon and Yukon XL Cadillac Escalade ACDelco CF188 GM Original Equipment Cabin Air Filter GM (23281440) Purchase here: http://amzn.to/2iJKyaZs
  11. Good point! I have been checking the dip stick and the truck definitely burns oil (I mention this in the beginning of the video). There was a bit of sludge in the bottom of the can where the oil had clearly mixed a bit with some other things from that mixture you describe but what I poured out should be straight oil. The rest stuck to the bottom and had to be wiped out.
  12. I was mainly surprised because my camaro catch can captured so much less. It was a lot more than I was expecting. Definitely very happy with my purchase! Definitely a great product. I will always run catch cans in all of my vehicles.
  13. I have had the Elite Engineering E2 Catch Can on my 2014 Silverado for about 8100 miles and just performed my first oil change since it was installed. (Don't worry, I use Mobil 1 Annual Protection). Shocked is an understatement of my reaction when I discovered how much oil my truck is burning. After seeing how much was captured by the Catch Can, I am very glad I decided to install one. I have run a catch can in my Camaro for several years and it captured far less oil between changes so I was very surprised with how much was captured this time. After doing this first check - up on the catch can, I now plan to check the can much more frequently (every 2,000 miles or so) to see how much is being captured. I will be uploading some additional follow up reviews on the catch can and how it is performing. Overall, I am completely satisfied with my purchase and will be purchasing from Elite Engineering again. Note that this engine is shared among many GM platforms such as the Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Suburban, Tahoe, Express, etc.
  14. We were hoping someone would pay for the parts so we could shoot the demo video in my truck and then take it out and put it in theirs. If someone would let us do it in their truck we would be happy to! I don't want the center console and planned to get rid of it after the install regardless. If you can help us out finding someone that wants it installed we would be happy to do it for free.
