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
- 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
- How to get more performance from the truck.
Anything would help,

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
It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times. Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process.
I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live.

Thanks to a tip by a forum member, we now know exactly when we can start ordering a new 2019 Silverado or Sierra. Or at least, when dealers can start to submit orders.
So when can your local Chevy or GMC dealer get your 2019 order processed? The answer isn't one date... it's a couple. And it depends on if you want a Crew Cab or a Double Cab.
If you want a Crew Cab
You're in luck. These are being ordered and produced first. Fleet orders start in a few days on April 26th. Retail orders through the Dealer Order Submission Process or DOSP start May 17th. Production is still undetermined with Quarter 3 (July/August/September) being listed for when the first saleable trucks will roll off the line.
If you want a Double Cab
You're going to have to wait a few more months. Fleet orders start June 21st. The initial DOSP will begin August 16th and production is estimated in Quarter 4 (October/November/December).
If you want a Regular Cab
You're really out of luck. All regular cab ordering and production is TBD. At this rate, don't expect any regular cab ordering or delivery at least until late late 2018 or early 2019.
Stay Up To Date!
