  1. The DuPont sticker with the paint code isn't from the factory...If it was, it would have been on the RPO sticker in the glove box. I don't think I've ever seen a GMT900 with a factory two tone paint job.
  2. Mobil-1 rebate

    I purchased 2 5 gallon jugs from WalMart back in August, submitted the rebate form online on August 8, and received the rebate on October 2.
  3. My 2010 had a lifter collapse and damaged the cam. Noticed the chirping when I pulled in the driveway and stopped to get the mail. I had stopped about 10 minutes earlier to get gas and there was no chirping...so no, you probably wouldn't have noticed anything to give you a warning. I don't think the bad lifters were in the GMT800 line (most people consider the 5.3 engines of that lineup to be the best)...the bad lifters started in the GMT900 (2007 and up) 5.3 engines with AFM. The GMT800 engines didn't have AFM. Sure, you could have a bad lifter but it's not due to a problem of bad lifters being used by GM. Sorry to tell you, but you're not going to get any help from GM (or any of the big 3) on an 11 year old engine
  4. Oil

    Straight from the owners manual...5W-30 down to -20°F and then you can use either 5W-30 or 0W-30 Like txab said, just run 5W-30 year round
  5. Wouldn't work for me either...I'm guessing because it's a "tapatalk" link for use on phones. I think this is the regular forum link http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/206786-fs-14-sierra-summit-white-door-handles/?tab=comments#comment-2052903
  6. If someone wants to steal it bad enough, there's no theft deterrent system going to stop them.

  7. They should be able to order it based on the wheelbase of the truck (157.5" WB or 143.5" WB)...LWB truck will have a longer brake line while the SWB will have a shorter brake line. Not knowing which you have, Rock Auto has 3 lengths for Ext Cab trucks http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/gmc,2003,sierra+1500,5.3l+v8,1422829,brake+&+wheel+hub,hydraulic+line,1820 http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=3844968&cc=1422829&jsn=13 http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=4714620&cc=1422829&jsn=14 http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=3845277&cc=1422829&jsn=17
  8. That may be correct. I have the WT on my '10 Sierra and couldn't remember if the fronts had tape or not. For some reason, I thought they did.
  9. Collapsed lifter help please

    Replace one lifter and you're likely to lose another one at any time. Go with new lifters all around (16 total, Non-AFM lifters), new head bolts, cam bolts, head gaskets, crank pulley bolt, cam gear and bolts (3 bolt conversion kit), GM 5.3L LM7 cam, and oil pan gasket. Should probably change oil pump also (the shop I used suggested changing the pump since the engine would be out anyway...get a Melling). Also, get a tuner or Black Bear tune to tune the AFM out. I went ahead and had them change the rear main seal also while everything was out of the truck (with my luck, it would have started leaking as soon as I got it back). You can configure the kit on their website (https://www.texas-speed.com/p-717-dod-afm-delete-kit-for-536062-engines.aspx), but I called them and they walked me through everything that I needed, but didn't try to push me to buy anything extra. Placed the order over the phone and the kit was delivered in about 3 days. Great customer service!!! I just had this done earlier this year, and ordered everything except for the tuner from Texas Speed and Performance. Parts came to a little over $600 and tuner was about $250, if I remember correctly. Being in the middle of a shutdown at work, it would have been several weeks before I could get to do anything to it, so I had a local shop install everything and labor was about $2200 and I had the truck back in about 3 days.
  10. If the truck didn't originally have foglights, you won't have the foglight switch (shouldn't anyway)
  11. AVS also has an in-channel vent visor https://www.getavs.com/avs/newproducts/side+window+deflectors/in-channel+ventvisor As far as being secured with tape, they are all secured with tape (in channel and the ones that mount to the exterior). The exterior mount uses the traditional "padded" double stick tape while the in channel uses a double stick tape more along the lines of scotch tape. On the in channel visors, the tape comes already stuck to the visor with a protective film over the outer sticky side. You pull a couple of inches of the film off, get the visor in the channel and set in place, then pull the rest of the film off, allowing the tape to stick to the inside of the window channel. Then roll the windows up.
  12. Check Ebay for part# 19170447 https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.A0.H0.X19170447+.TRS4&_nkw=19170447+&_sacat=0 Here's a How-To on installing the kit on a 2012 Sierra (same kit and installation) http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/147854-how-to-gmt900-sierra-oem-fog-light-installation/
  13. Looking at pics of both, it looks like the AVS vent visors have a lower profile than the WT.
  14. AVS makes one that sits directly on the leading edge of the hood (does not screw to the underside of the hood). It is the Aeroskin model
