  1. Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?
  2. I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 LT Z71. On the factory grill, there are three gloss black "grill bars" that appear to be separate pieces from the flat black grill inserts. On the 2017 LTZ Z71, these three bars are chrome plated. I think that is a nice way to add just enough chrome to the grill to really make it pop, so to speak. Since I have not had the gril off of the truck, I am not sure how the gloss black grill bars are fastened on. Is there a way to remove them and replace them with the chrome versions? And if so, how would I obtain the chrome replacements without buying a complete LTZ Z71 grill from GM? Just for reference, here is a picture of my grill: And here is a picture of a LTZ Z71 grill. This is the look I am trying to achieve: I would really appreciate any input. Thanks
  3. Here's my new to me CPO 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3/8spd LTZ w/ LTZ Plus Package and Z71 Package. Silver Ice on Jet Black Here are pics the day I picked it up from Lone Star Chevrolet in Houston TX on Feb 28. Mods are going to be the usual and will be listed below Thanks for looking!
  4. Hello all, I consider myself a supernewb as this is my first GM product in over 25 years. Just traded in my trusty 2nd gen 4x4 Dodge Cummins for a new to me CPO 2016 Silverado 5.3l z71 LTZ w/ Plus package. I can't believe I left the Ram camp, but this truck really impressed me on the test drives... Anyway, I hope to learn as much about these vehicles as possible via the forums and looking forward to discussions to be had. And now for the obligatory here are my planned mods list. and in no particular order lose the rake. size up on tires, perhaps move to a black OEM wheel to lessen the chrome affect. roller locking bed cover amp power steps to replace the factory steps and perhaps as decent subwoofer. attached some pics.. "out with the old, in with the new."
  5. HI, I have purchased 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in September of last year, everything seem to be fine until yesterday. while standing at the light with the break pressed, the rear camera picture appeared on the display. it does not have the the guide lines, just the picture, every time I press the break the camera comes on. When i come to the stop and take my time to put in reverse, the picture stays without the guidelines even though it is in reverse. If i Put in reverse quickly, the camera comes on as it should with the guide lines. I have switched bulbs to LED bulbs with resistors for breaks and reverse no resistors as they do not blink, but it was back in September without any issues so far until now. not sure if that can cause the malfunction or not, but i would think that LEDs have nothing to do with the camera. I'm assuming that water got somewhere and its shorting out/powering up camera. its cold here so I did not get the chance to look at it yet. if anyone can point me to where the camera gets the signal from i can probably figure it out before i go back to the dealer to get that fixed. Notice below what gear the truck is in including "R" no guide lines.. thanks a lot..
  6. Good Morning all, I have been on the search for the running boards off the z71 Midnight edition tahoe. Could anyone please provide a part number or any info? I haven't had any lucking finding them. Even the dealer is having issues. Thanks! 2017 Tahoe Z71 Midnight edition running boards
  7. Big Whiskey's 2016 2500HD

    I traded my 2012 Silverado 1500 for a new 2016 2500HD! It's an LT trim level, but has quite a few options. It has the All Star package and LT Plus package, which adds most of the important items. It also has a few extras, like the LED bed lighting and towing mirrors. MSRP was just a little over 50k. Here's a few completely stock, dealership photos. It looks pretty plain for a 50k truck!
  8. How’s it going, Was wondering if anyone wanted a quick guide on installing cab/clearance lights. thought they look nice. have them wired up so that they only run when your headlights are on.
  9. So the other day I tried to get to a parking spot and had to go over a snow pile to get to a parking spot and thought I had the ground clearance but the stupid plastic skirt under the front bumper got caught and got pulled off. So now I'm thinking do I replace it, leave it as is, or do an upgrade. I'm not thinking about a full bumper replacement but something like a skid plate or maybe a winch mount? Let me know if you have any ideas and pictures and prices would be great if you have done one yourself. First two pictures are of my truck, next are some ideas I'm thinking of

  11. Hi guys, I am new here and I have been enjoying my truck for about 7 months now. Just figured to take some photos of the truck since the first round of my mods is done. Mod list - 18 inch Volk Racing TE37 Large PCD Wheels - Retrax Tonneau Cover - AMP Research Powerstep I hope you guys enjoy the photos
  12. I got a used truck back in September with a lucky 17500 miles on it when I got it. So low miles compared to the 28000 miles on the Subaru Crosstrek I traded for the truck even though they were the same year. I got the truck to tow my new travel trailer that I am full time living in as I create a business to travel the country to see what is out there. Tired of the office life. I got the gas version and know a diesel is better but the smell of the exhaust gives me migraines and I don't know how to fix them. So I purposely went for the gas truck. The travel trailer I have is only 8000lbs GVWR so I am well under the max towing of the truck. I look forward to doing some research here and looking into upgrades or changes that might fit my needs.

  13. I test drove a 2016 Silverado with the new Off Road Sport Package today, and I really like it. I asked at the dealership if there's a bed cover that is compatible with the sport bar, bu nobody had an answer - anyone know any different? It will help me decide whether or not to get the dealer-installed sport bar or not, since the bed cover is more important for me than the sport bar and associated lights. Thanks.
  14. Hello, I’ve never posted in a forum before, so please bear with me. I need help finding center cap replacements for my husbands truck. He has a 2014 z71 Silverado. I’ve attached a pic. Would like to get him caps with a black bowtie. I guess his wheels are brushed chrome? Do not want stickers or spray on, would like to replace the whole center cap, but I have no idea where to start looking. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Aiming to have it for Christmas!! Thank you!!!
  15. In May I got a 2017 Silverado 1500 Z71 and I have already started my build with a few minor changes. I am going to start a page that will follow my build. This is my first truck so I would appreciate it if I could get some feedback and suggestions. What I've done: -- 20% tint on the side and back windows -- Debadged the tailgate Coming soon (open to all suggestions): -- Exhaust - I want a deep sound but minimal drone -- Lift - around 3-5 inches but I don't want it to ride like crap -- Rims and tires -- Side steps -- Windshield tint -- Replace the Z71 badges with black and red/black and blue (don't want any chrome) -- Replace bowtie outlines to match the Z71 badges -- Offroad bumpers -- Truxedo Lo Pro tonneau
  16. Can't find any White Frost Tricoat threads so I'll start! My new 2017 White Frost Tricoat Sierra SLT 4x4 Z71 I hope you like!
  17. Hey Guys, First time poster here, long time reader. I have a 2016 1500 Z71 in Summit White and I'm interested in replacing the front grille and headlamp bezels in black. I've seen some online with the mismatched front end and I think it looks awesome. The issue I'm having is that I can't find the headlamp bezels anywhere. I can find the black grille no problem, but those bezels are illusive. Anyone have any ideas on where I can find these or am I better off just painting my current ones?
  18. I want to lift my 2017 silverado 1500, any thoughts on 7.5" lift from rough country??? Reviews please thanks guys!!!

  20. Keirsten19332's GMC Sierra 1500

    So I figured it was finally time for me to start one of these build posts. I appreciate peoples input and ideas, so feel free to comment and tell me if you have a suggestion. I can't wait complete my build, but is a build ever really complete? Haha! The more I think about it, the more I think of things that I want to do to it. Anyways... The truck is a Cardinal red 2016 GMC Sierra SLE 5.3L with the Z71 package. It came with 20" rims and a factory bedliner. I bought it in October 2016 and so far I have already done a few phases of the build. Phase 1 was dealer installed -Magnum RT side steps -Leveling kit -GM laser cut floor liners -Clear 3M bra on front Phase 2 came a week later -AVS low profile window visors -Bakflip MX4 tonneau cover -Drivers side UnderCover SwingCase Phase 3 began towards the end of November -MBRP Cat back dual exhaust (check out a video of it right after install, before the CAI install. I think it sounds great, not too obnoxious, but you can definitely hear it. )-AFE Magnum Force Pro Dry S intake kit Phase 4 (current) -Bakbox 2 (mail in rebate finally went through!) -Flush mount LEDs for rear bumper (have them, need to install) -vinyl wrap interior trim Hope to do soon: Black out bumpers and grille, black out or remove all other chrome on exterior. New wheels and rubber! Always looks nice with a bit of mud!
  21. Hi everyone Up for sale is my beloved 2014 Silverado. 4x4 Double Cab Z71 It is professionally lifted 9" with a McGaughys lift, 35" Cooper STT Pro tires on 20x10 Fuel Coupler wheels (85-90% tread left) This truck has been extremely reliable. I purchased it from Chevrolet of Milford certified used and it is still under the factory warranty It turns a lot of heads and I receive a ton of compliments everywhere I go. Clean title 47,xxx miles. Asking $32,500 OBO. I am negotiable on the price and willing to work out a deal. In addition to the lift, other very nice add-ons were installed. LTZ projector headlights with 5000k Morimoto HIDs (almost pure white light) Tri-fold tonneau cover Volant performance exhaust. Phillips 6000k LEDs in the cargo light and reverse lights. OEM all weather floor mats Tow mirrors running boards (removable-3m stick on) bumpershells gloss black front bumper cover should you want to return to the chrome bumper. Other than that, the truck has been well maintained. I am selling due to the fact my wife and I carpool to work and this gets driven no more than once a week. It is no longer necessary to have two vehicles at this point. the truck will also come with all of the stock components should you desire to return it back to stock. I made sure to keep all of the parts after the shop installed the lift. I also have the stock mirrors, stock floor mats, and stock halogen headlights and stock goodyear tires, antennae and mudflaps. Again, I really wanted to have nearly all of the stock pieces readily available. The motor is untouched and untuned. Zero done there. Cosmetically there are a few small dings and very minor scratches. Nothing major in the least bit Please enjoy the pics. Here to answer all questions and send more pics and videos as requested. I also have the GM build sheet of the truck as well
  22. Ok I got 2007 gmc sierra 1500. I'm currently having to change the engine out but trying to get information first. I currently have a 5.3L. I'm wanting to go to the 6.0L but I'm wanting to know my year range. And what all I have to do to get it going. Like do I have to change computer or anything like that. Any help is appreciated.
  23. Hello all! I have a midnight edition z71 (see sig)and I was thinking about blacking out the red 'Z' in Z71 on my doors and my front grill. what would be the safest and easiest way to do that? My three thoughts are taping off and using plasti dip OR getting some touch up paint and just getting little brush and painting that way OR even better, are their any after market stickers (that i haven't been able to find yet) that i can just put over the red? Although I like the de badge look, I saw one with a blacked out Z and thought it looked even better. Any help would be appreciated! (Oh and side question... I never thought of an oil filter as a part that would increase performance, but I was curious if I have been thinking wrong? I always get a mobile 1 filter anyway) Thanks in advance!
  24. Does anyone know where I can buy fender flares for a 2005 GMC Sierra stepside? I cannot find anything at all?

I don't get why I can't find anything about Stepside bed fender flares! Please help!!!
