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?


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.
