GM-Trucks.com loves to report the results of the various J.D. Power awards. Why not? The GM brands, and Chevy in particular, tend to kick butt in the awards, outscoring premium brands every time and seem to always top Ford and Ram. Even better, the GM-Trucks.com membership like to cut up the awards in the commentary. Maybe we are late to the party, but we recently discovered the unedited versions of Chevy's advertisements showing the "real people" that Chevy shows off its trophy case to. Watch the video and you will see what we mean.

 

 

If you like the J.D. Power award video you may also like this one about the mystery car that looks exactly like a Chevy Malibu.

 

 

Author's note: Having grown up in "Medfid" Mass., the real person named Mahk in the video is every guy I grew up with.

I shared this on Facebook yesterday, and I got a good laugh out of it. Being serious though, these commercials are terrible and they make me cringe.

I ain't no marketing specialist by all means.

But I know that commercials like this turn me away.

This guy towards the end of the video, kneeling in front of the truck, kissing the bumber? Seriously?

This is soo bad... :idiot:

GM needs to step their marketing game up. These spoofs portray my thoughts of these commercials perfectly.

GM needs to give "us" 100k to make a commerical, decided by the GMTC community. Then they bring the cameras, and film what we do. Part of it would be driving over those trophies.

After all, it works.

They made me to remember this commercial and I even posted a link.

Inked into my brain. Not in a good way, though.

      So I recently inherited a 99 silverado and I want to lift it a little. I was planning on cranking the keys and adding a leaf in the back to clear 33s without rubbing. I have heard stories of having to redo front ends because of overcranking torsion bars. I was wondering can I put hdtorsionbads on my 1500 and will that give me any lift??

      The Sundae Drive does an in-depth video showing how to install an oil catch can for a 2014 Silverado 5.3L. What are the benefits of an oil catch can? Well if you visit the follwing sites you can read all about the benefits and importance of running an oil catch can. Catch cans are NOT ONLY for turbo/supercharger applications. They can be very beneficial for people with naturally aspirated setups. https://www.redline-motorworks.com/bl... http://oilcatchcan.com/oil-catch-can-... Purpose of your Stock PCV System: The PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) system is designed to regulate and remove fumes from the engine crankcase and to alleviate crankcase pressure which could cause oil leaks or seal damage. The PCV system routes crankcase fumes into the intake manifold where they can be burned to eliminate harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The PCV valve controls the amount of crankcase flow volume depending on the engine's load. With large throttle openings (high engine loads), the more blow-by gases are produced, and the more the PCV system flows oil vapor into the intake manifold. A small amount of that ignited mixture leaks past the piston rings and ends up in the crankcase. This leakage is often referred to a "blow-by" or leakage past the pistons. Some of the oil mist and other products settle along the engine intake and over time form a "gunk". Our oil catch can collect the oil mist and condensed the fuel vapors while allowing "cleaner" gasses to pass back into the intake manifold. To pick up a Catch Can of your own go check out: http://www.eliteengineeringusa.com/ Here is the link for the E2 Catch itself and a diagram showing how it works! http://www.eliteengineeringusa.com/e2...

      Chevrolet unexpectedly revealed the all-new "from the ground up" 2019 Silverado at an owner's event in Texas yesterday. Lucky GM fans got to see the truck, but details are being held back in anticipation of the mid-January Detroit Auto Show. Chevy says this new truck is all about what owners want. And Chevy says what they want is "more choice, more capability, and more functionality." This based on feedback from 7,000 owner interviews.
       
      The company released a few select photos of a top trim line "Trail Boss" Silverado in a bright red. The Trail Boss trim level comes with the legendary Z71 package and a 2-inch lift. Chevrolet also made sure to mention the future full-size will come in eight different models and a slew of engine and transmission combinations. Check out the full press release at the bottom of this post for more details but the future sounds bright for the Silverado. 
       
      If you're interested in seeing just how Chevy introduced the all new Silverado, check out this post with photos and video from the event.
