Here is a story about my Blue Granite Metallic 2014 Silverado. After searching the state for a 2014 CCSB 6.2 non max towing, I ended up having to order the truck that I wanted. The order went in on 03-04-2014. I received a tracking # on 03-12-2014. The truck was at an event code 3400 on 03-19-2014. The truck was built on 03-24-2014. I got the vin # on 03-25-2014. The truck was shipped on 03-26 or 27-2014. The truck was at the Dealership on 04-08-2014. The truck was listed as sold on 04-09-2014 and I got to bring her home on 04-11-2014 at 1953hrs. Here are some pictures of the Vet for 5.

Here you have a story of one 2014 Blue Granite Metallic Silverado. Add your story if you want. I look forward to reading them. Oh yeah, the GMC Syclone is back to being my toy again.

I ordered my crew cab blue granite with 5.3 and max tow on 3-24 and it shipped on 4-10.

Way faster than I thought it would. I was set on the dark ruby and when I went to look

at one there was a blue granite next to it and i change to that color.

I cant see your pictures for some reason? Can everyone else see them?

The pictures are fixed I believe. I got a Email from photobucket staying that my links change. I really like the 6.2 and while I know that 68 miles is not much. I like the current mpg.

Nice to see orders are getting filled faster. What was the difference between your hand MPG calculations and the DIC?


Best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to practice a religion at all.

I will post that up when I gas it up. Just kind of hard to do when you only have 68 miles on it. We will be taking a trip here soon. I will post up that mileage as well.
