General Motors is raising the stakes on discounting to almost unbelievable levels. Perhaps it was the slight dip in sales of full-size trucks over the past couple of months, perhaps GM just wants to top Ford in full-size truck sales, or maybe inventory is above levels the General is comfortable with. Or maybe it's all marketing hype and the savings are not on trucks anyone really buys in big numbers. Whatever the reasons, GM is discounting trucks at a level that is approaching comical. The deal is for a 1500 Crew Cab All-Star, and as the advertisement shows, the discounts include about ten grand is cash from GM. Only $750 of the discount has to do with the "Option package discount."

GMC is also discounting heavily. Its special deal is on the Sierra 1500 4WD Crew Cab. Ram has discount offers of about six grand show on its website. Ford's and Nissan's discounts appear to be about four grand on the F-150 and 2017 Titan. Toyota's Tundra site has no national discount offers posted, but has a "See Local Specials" button. When we put in our zip code no specials were shown.

Maybe GM is trying to sell as many trucks as possible before the sh## hits the fan, this will be the first time I walked away after test driving a full size Silverado and also the Sierra. The reason I chose not to purchase was the issues with tranny shifts, throttle response and vibrations that are now being described at the dealers as "normal". Recently a friend was in the market for a new vehicle and was showed a High Country Silverado which she fell in love with and purchased the truck, she now wishes she did not because of the "normal" tranny shifts that have become abnormal. She also has had troubles with her 2013 Equinox that should have made her change brands, she too is a loyal GM customer. If GM figures out what is normal and what is not, I will probably purchase a new Silverado/Sierra. These problems started after the new platform in 2014 and still plague a percentage of the new trucks, just not mine !

With so much discount, does that mean that I finally get what I've paid for?

      So I have a 2014 Silverado LT1, without the Bose system. It has the 4" non touch screen radio, and 6 non Bose speakers. I want to upgrade to the loudest, clearest sounding speakers possible. My local sound store told me Arc Audio was the way to go, and I was hoping some others may have installed some before I do. Looking for feedback and opinions, don't worry about price, I'm just looking for the loudest clearest sound I can get.

      Hey guys. I have been driving a used 2007 Silverado Classic for about a year now. The truck has a regular cab, regular bed, 4.3L V6, and did not come with a tow package from the factory. After I started to realize I would need it for towing some smaller to medium trailers,  I got the basic 4 way package and hitch installed at U Haul this past December, and also installed a Hopkins 7-blade/4-pin piece to the wiring cable just above the spare tire. However, I also would prefer to hook in a trailer brake system to save on wear and tear on my brake pads when moving larger trailers that I might occasionally haul. While the standard 2007 Silverado Classic (it's really just a 2006 Silverado) that comes with a tow package comes with the wiring, the wiring to the STUD #1 fuse in my engine bay fuse box, which normally has the power to a trailer brake controller, is absent from anywhere I can see around the box on mine. I also notice that the wiring to the trailer brake output in my truck is not connected to anything, and is just an empty wire running back to the end of the truck.  STUD #2 is already connected under the box, which does not show the usual "install all the wires yourself" advice on most trailer brake controller videos from etrailer.com

      I am wondering if the red/power and blue/trailer brake wiring is hiding anywhere within any bundles and just needs to be connected together into the fuse box and to a trailer controller, or if I have to tap into my firewall and wire up everything myself. 
       
      Here is a representation of the truck I have below: 

       
      Here is the fuse box. Stud #1 seems to be used by the trailer brake controller's power wire, as most etrailer.com videos show these are already wired on towing equipped vehicles.

      I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. 
       
      Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best.
       
      - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock.
      - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being
      2wd.
      - Change to an aftermarket air intake.
      - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit.
      - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit
      - Exhaust?
      - How to get more performance from the truck.
       
      Anything would help,
       
      Thanks

      Heya folks,
      I have come across a 1993 chevy silverado 3500 with a swapped engine (502) I have little to no experience with cars. I've been looking at it with a mechanic who is considerably more experienced having worked on Cummins Diesels for a transport company. He's working on a truck of his own. I was trying to help him out by figuring out the firing order we've tried various ones, It doesn't appear to be misfiring but I have little experience with v8's so i'm not sure what a 502 or a 454 should sound like firing order-wise. I'd happily post a recording. Truck also has injection issues which means it needs a bit of help every time to start. It's also currently stuck in limp-mode as it will not exceed 1800rpm's. The computer has been 'tampered' with, presumably when the block was changed. It's currently with another mechanic who has a diagnostic system. 
      Basically, I was hoping someone could post the firing order of a 502 and I could check when I get her back from the mechanic.
      Thank you all in advance
