Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?
I know a lot of people are running black rims on white trucks and blacked out black trucks and color matching etc. I decided to go old school chrome (lux) look. I made this happen on the front end by swapping out my black front bumper skid shield with the denali chrome one. I also as some of you may know, whited out my badges with reflective vinyle (see profile pic) and decided on chrome rims, exception, these rims are powder coated and flashed for the exact same look as chrome except they clean up just like paint. soap and water and wax.
So this may not be for all but it takes me back a bit while still be modern.
By the way, to remove this and replace. off comes the under grill molding, the radiator shroud, the front grill, the front bumper, remove both bumper backing plates remove and replace skid plate. i followed these instructions...
For all your questions on whether or nota certain tire will fit such with such lift and wheel combo, check out this website called custom offsets. They have videos of every lift and tire wheel combo u can think of. You can even search based on year of vehicle tire size etc.
New to the forum. I installed a train horn behind the front bumper and removed my lower air dam. Things is, I want to replace that black Sierra plastic skid plate with the =Denali Chrome one. Give the front end a beefier front end... I will try to add mock up pics from my iphone. Anyway, I got the lower dam off, piece of cake. Got all but two screws from the upper plastic skid plate. The other two screws are almost impossible to reach. HAs anyone tried to remove this thing? https://www.generalmotorspartsonline.com/oem-parts/gm-skid-plate-23243492?origin=pla
I am really hoping I don't have to remove the front bumper,m valance trim etc just to get at those two screws. Anyone done this before? any ideas? Thanks in advance!
here is the phtoshoped version of what i am trying. The white letters for gmc i already did with reflective vinyl, looks cool at night when lights hit it! Plus it matches the truck. I did the rear as well
I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD and just installed a motofab 3" front and 2" rear leveling kit. Looks like it opened up some room for bigger tires.
I will be ditching the stock 17" wheels and 31" tires. Probably get 18" wheels.
Does anyone know how big I can go for new tires? Hoping to get 34" without having to trim much.
