Just bought a 2003 silverado 8.1l (496). I know if you maintain these engines and drive with common sense these engines will go the distance. Just curious what kind of problems you run into using this truck as a daily driver? Running a 7" lift, 37" tires, 130,300 miles. Or anything I should look out for? Open to all advice and opinions. Thank you, Brandon.

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.

What will the future T1XX 2019 Silverado look like? That's the question we're getting closer to answering thanks to our amazing spy photographer.
ADDED 11/7/2017 - We now also have photos of the 2019 GMC Sierra in a similar state of camo.

Okay, so I have a 2014 4wd Silverado on 35's and I have a 3.5 inch leveling spacer on top of my strut. I ordered a 2" leveling kit that goes on the bottom, so I would be stacking leveling kits for a combined height of 5.5 inches of lift. The only problem is all the other components. I know my upper control arms couldn't take that, but I cant find any UCA's that fit 5.5 inches of lift, only 3.5 at the most. Any suggestions on how i could stack the kits and not mess anything up? Also, I believe the UCA's are aluminum, I haven't looked in a while and I forgot. BTW mine is the one on the left.
