Chevy Teases Photo of 2020 Silverado 3500HD

I don't think the Z71 means anything anymore.. not with how badly they have cheeped out on the stuff
Z71 was a suspension code back in the day, right? I remember that was "firm ride" where as the other (Z83?) was standard or soft ride? That all it technically was IIRC...

In the GMT400 you got alum' rims & crappy Goodyear Wrangler TD tires. A friend had 1 that he bought new & the tire wear was horrible.

The tire wear is horrible on most tires on vehicles from the factory.  I was only able to get 23,000 miles out of the factory Bridgestones on my 08 Sierra and about 23,000 miles on the Goodyear Wranglers on my new 07 Sierra.  Despite rotations every 5000 miles and 4-wheel alignment every year.

The factory Firestones on my '13 lasted for 70,000mls with about 25% of thread left when I switched to KO2's.

      Anyone who is planning out how they might want to order their next generation Silverado can offically start rejoicing. A lot of new information just dropped. Chevrolet just updated it's ordering information for the 2019 Silverado and we now know what colors it will be offered in, among other things.
       
      Didn't see the dates your dealer can start ordering? We've got em!
       
      Here's the official names of the eleven colors you'll be able to paint your 2019 Silverado:
       
      Red Hot Havana Brown Metallic Iridescent Pearl Tricoat Satin Steel Metallic Northsky Blue Metallic Silver Ice Metallic Summit White Black Oakwood Metallic Shadow Gray Metallic Cajun Red Tintcoat  
      Two colors, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat and Cajun Red Tintcoat will be extra cost options. Oakwood Metallic will also be extra cost and also won't be available at the start of production .
       
      As far as which colors are which.... we're still piecing that together.  GM's official photography has only a few options and there's no official guide to which color is which. Here's what we can piece together so far...
       
      Summit White

       
      Red Hot

       
      Satin Steel Metallic

       
      But more color options have popped up online and on facebook. 
       
      Black

      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
