I fabricated true dual exhaust for my 2009 Silverado this weekend and have been plagued by horrible drone at 2000 RPM. cat back is 3" exhaust with x pipe right after cats and 10" flex pipes. dual exits before the rear wheel with 5 inch tips. Unsure if I should add a resonator and if so which one. don't want to loose the volume or flow but cant deal with the drone. will post pics of system soon. anything helps
I'm looking to buy a painted oem front bumper that doesn't have parking sensors. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT with the chrome front bumper with parking sensors. I was wondering if anyone has drilled an OEM bumper and put in OEM parking sensors? I'm thinking this will be straight forward and shouldn't pose any problems?
I've been wandering these forums for a little bit now - I was initially looking hard at a 16+ chevy. Then realized it wasn't practical for me to buy another newer truck. So I then started looking at 07-13 trucks.... Then realized I don't want to deal with the 5.3 AFM issues.... So now I'm very interested in even older ones, from 03-06. I have been looking for about a month and have now found a 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT that is 2 hours away. Heres the info:
- 2006 GMC Sierra SLT 1500 4x4 5.3
- 127k miles
- crew cab
- heated & memory seats
- electronic everything
- matching cap
- tinted windows
- Grey color (MY FAVORITE)
- 2.5" lift
- GMT900 wheels
- few other add ons, only a few repairs to the front end... mostly untouched
- new rear brake lines
- rusted out driver side rocker, but the passenger side is almost flawless (so he says - the pictures look like its good)
- dent/scrape on the passenger side from the rear door to the beginning of the bed. I got an estimate to fix all of the body issues from someone who I personally know who does professional body work - ~$2,200 to repair.
I will post pictures later when I'm able.... But for now I wanted to get a feel for what everyone who is experienced with these trucks thinks about it. I have him down to $8.000 cash.
Do you think that is a good deal? It seems that these crew cabs are GOLD and hold their value like an old jeep. I love the truck so far. I don't mind the rust because it is all contained on the bottom rocker - which can all be replaced as one when I see fit. Does this sound like a good deal? Obviously I'll probably have to have work done on the front end in the near future. I am planning to go look at it 10/7/17.... exactly 1 week away.
Thanks for your input.
