  4. Now, the bow tie on my steering wheel matches the ones on the grill and the tailgate. Tried using some touch up paint that I had, didn’t like it, so I reworked it with some Plasti-Dip I had laying around. Prepped for my initial attempt to paint it black. You can see how “ugly” it turned out, initially. First of three layers of Plasti-Dip. Used my recently purchased heat gun to force cure each layer/application. “Finished product.” Edited just now by Ravenkeeper

  6. They're is a cheaper fix. Go to Lowe's and head into the hardware department. There are a bunch of drawers filled with specialty hardware. A few drawers are labeled AUTOMOTIVE. In one of them is black plastic push pins that have a slight curve to the heads. You can always paint the heads to match since you mentioned chrome. Insert them into the holes and 9 out of 10 people wouldn't even notice.
  7. That engine selection is curious. I assumed you would've gone with the babymax. Don't get me wrong. I love the 6.2 in my truck, but I thought you were trying to lower your fuel bill, not raise it.
  8. Yep, that's what it looks like when your baby runs into the side of a steel wall on the driver's side of the truck
  9. Thanks. Does it work the other way around? Can wheels for 19 and up work on a 2016? in this case, Backspacing: 4.28"
  10. They can't legally pull a credit report without you signing a document allowing them to do that
  11. Yes they are same. BUT wheels that are backspaced for 18 and down will not fit 19+ due to nub on 19+ front calipers.
  12. Is my trans replaceable with one from a v8?
  13. There are magneride bypass kits if you want to run regular shocks with no diagnostic lights on. Check out Xineering Bypass kit is like 300 bucks
  14. Hi my 2015 Silverado had a loose ground that we fixed and caused a lot of chaos in the dashboard. One of the other things it did was get my truck stuck in 4 Hi . It won’t come out. I’ve disconnected the battery cables and checked the fuses. Nothing has worked yet. Any advice
  15. How many of you duramax guys plug your truck up on cold nights? And what temperature do you utilize it?First winter owning a diesel, just looking for tips or ideas.
  16. If you’re looking for something that will change the way your truck responds I would look into getting a banks pedal monster. I just installed one on my 3.0 and I really enjoy the results. Install was about 10 minutes there are plenty of YouTube videos on it. This module is not a tuner that gives you more performance but it does change the throttle response and you can adjust it to your specs. I found that the Duramax lacks a bit on instant power that I would like and this module takes care of that. Banks also claims the module doesn’t leave a foot print so you can disconnect it when you have to take a trip to the dealer for any repairs. Banks is also developing an actual tuner for our 3.0’s and you will be able to stack both mods without any problems. Hope this helps GL
  17. I told you what to do. The battery negative cable runs down the firewall to two places. One is above the starter on the engine block. The other is the passenger front tire on the cab side of the frame. Make sure these are clean of frame wax and rust. Mine had some insulation near the terminal between the metal and the frame. It’s a 10mm bolt. You can’t miss it. You do not need to remove the fender liner. You can take a few torx out to make it easier.

  19. I also live in Ga I'm surprised the dealer installed it, unless they just wanted to add a dealer tag (not cool). Guess I was lucky mine came in the truck not installed.
  20. I placed an order for a 2022 Sierra 1500 AT4 yesterday afternoon. I made a reservation and the dealer called to let me know it was time to build my truck! I have a 2021 Denali Duramax now and downsizing because theres no need for the HD grocery getter anymore. All I pull now is a small travel trailer and my 2 21 ft Bass & Bay boats. Sad to see it go but on the bright side, I'll lower my payment, insurance, fuel cost, maintenance, ect. I'm kinda looking forward to not driving a school bus around anymore as well. 1 day down, 3 months or so to go is what I was told it would take to get here.
  21. Ill try to look into that. Good thing I have no sense of smell lol. My wife on the other hand makes up for it LOL super sensitive nose. One of the few times a magic eraser let me down lol
