  3. Id rather go with spike performance kit. On3 has been known to not send all of the parts
  4. Gear Change 9.5" 12 bolt

    Guys that have a bunch of miles on your East Coast Gear Supply setups, any premature ring & pinion wear? My local driveline shop who I highly trust (he does dozens of gear swaps every week and also does custom rears with shortened tubes and any custom build you can think of) says that he has had premature R&P wear with the ECGS ring gear spacers when installing Duragrip or Eaton TruTracs and different gear ratios. I currently have a 3.42 gear 9.5 12-bolt and I want to keep the current 3.42 gears, but install a TruTrac. https://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-23993370-gm-9-5-semi-float-detroit-true-trac.html
  5. Tehachapi Willow Springs Crash

    Wow. Glad your alright. Sad to hear about the Toyota. Why the hell does the desert news print names like that? I mean, cripes, ok maybe the dude that passed.... but no need for everyone's info.
  6. To hell with the temperature reading! The truck looks sweet, nice lift mang.
  7. It will adjust back to normal. Had the same thing happen after doing the diablo tune on my 2014 Silverado.
  8. Titian Fuel tank

    Hmm. Initially I thought that the price was way too high, but after a basic internet search - it looks like you did just fine. I did not find any cheaper fuel tanks, and the install labor is fairly reasonable. From what I'm seeing your only cheaper options would have been extra fuel containers, which are not nearly as secure and are not very convenient. Enjoy your upgrade. I would. These are the only cheaper options that I found:
  9. Has anyone mentioned a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on this? I saw one other thread talking about grease and rubber. I haven't seen the post/thread about the plastic pieces.
  10. Marv88 2016 Silverado LS Regular Cab 5.3L

    I go them from GM parts direct I believe and not sure I have the part numbers but I will look as I typically keep the packages to put the original parts in. One thing to note is the reclining handle is held on with a c-clip so you can use an old school window crank tool to remove that one however it looks like a special tool was needed for the lumbar handle and I couldn't figure out how to get it off easily so I ended cutting the original trim panel off with tin snips to get at the handle
  11. If your dash rattles and it drives you insane, carve out an hour or two and take care of it. You'll thank yourself every time you drive it. A combination of large (3/8"x1/2") and small (1/8"x1/4") weather stripping worked well for me. Use a combination of thick and thin on the driver side vent-headlight switch panel. Two thin pieces are used behind the driver side panel near the clamps that hold the assembly to the dash. Three large strips are used under the steering wheel. Be sure to check for loose bolts as described here. My bottom two were loose. Several thin strips are used behind the passenger side vent assembly. Two more strips are directly attached to the vent assembly prior to reinstalling the fuse box cover. Congratulations! You're $40,000 Silverado doesn't sound like an $800 Silverado!

  13. What did you do to your "other" car (aka musclecar) today

    At Walmart. Your Welcome.
  14. I would assume they are the same... The trucks are almost identical. But I would call a Chevy dealer and get the part number, then do the same at GMC. It won't take but a few min to do, but you may have to convince to GMC dealer to look it up without a VIN. Some of the parts guys are sticklers for requiring a VIN to look up part numbers... No one hires mechanics anymore, just parts changers and jump jockeys! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  16. Last good z71

    False. You know what I never had to do to my 2000 Z71? I never had to put bike tire rubber tubing on my rear leaf springs so it would quit making noise. It's a real thing on my 2016. See here I also never had to replace any injectors on my 2000. It's everywhere like a Toy Story meme with the newest gen Silverados. I also never had to pack the dash with weather stripping so it would quit rattling (write-up coming soon). I did pull trailers with it. I pulled friends out of mud holes. I pulled strangers out of snow banks. It just worked as long as I kept it fueled and lubed. Sure it didn't come standard with Apple CarPlay, but I could put 10% air on my dash vents and the other 90% on my feet if I felt the need. I could also see all gauges at once from where I was sitting without adjusting my seat or steering wheel. It quit me once at 150K when the fuel pump finally let go, but that was about it. Are the latest gen Silverados nice? Sure. Achieve better fuel economy? No doubt. But, when you consider the staggering amount of bullshit that you get along with these trucks, are they considered good? I say no. I echo that the late 99 to 2006 was the last good Z71 and I don't have much hope for 2019.

    I did the same thing except I took it one step further. I did a little research and found that a company in Texas makes the connector on the OEM factory harness. I spent an hour on the phone talking to 2 diff technitions simultaneously to get the correct parts. I now have a water proof connection with a factory locking connector.

  18. idk I'm just closer to a GMC dealership and have an accessory voucher
  19. Could always compare the part numbers and see if they are the same. Is one cheaper then a another? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  20. What's up guys!! Long time reader, first time poster! I have a quick question, I just got done putting a 7" Rough Country lift on my 2016 Silverado LT Crew and I got the RC quickcal to adjust the speedometer. I followed the instructions step by step and every thing went as expected during the calibration, but once it finished and I was safe to start the vehicle, I had the " ice possible - drive with care " message on the dash, so I look at the temp reading on the stereo and it was showing 32° when it was actually 70°. Has anyone else had this issue? I was thinking about leaving over night and see what it says and if that doesn't work then try to do the calibration over again. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated....cheers! P.s. attached a pic of the new lift and I couldn't be happier! 😁

  23. Is the OEM underseat storage for Crew Cabs for Silverados and Sierras the same? If I got one at a GMC dealer would it fit my Chevrolet?
