  14. At first I thought the glue was gonna be too hard to do it, but it does take a little persuasion and some force to get in there. Extremely happy with the result i think it looks so much better than with the chrome. Also very happy that I didn't have to cut them everything went together super easy and like a glove. Let me know what you guys think, and ask away if you have any questions. Before After

  16. Last month I put in my order for a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT. I got the double cab in Iridium Metallic, 4 wheel drive, all terrain package, preferred package and the L86 6.2L. This is my first new vehicle, but my 5th GM vehicle. Technically my 2nd new vehicle if you count the wife's Terrain. I put the order in on the 12th of April and it rolled off the line on the 8th of May. Just waiting for it to arrive at the dealer now.

  17. I came across this phrase yesterday "FENDER SKIRTS". These things look foolish now--but I have to admit, we thought them the "Cat's Meow" back then!!! A term I haven't heard in a long time & thinking about "fender skirts" started me thinking about other words that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice like "curb feelers", "steering knobs." (AKA) suicide knob. Since I'd been thinking of cars, my mind naturallywent that direction first. Any kids will probably have to find some elderly person over 50 to explain some of these terms to you. Remember "Continental kits?" They were rear bumper extenders and spare tire covers that were supposed to make any car as cool as a Lincoln Continental. When did we quit calling them "emergency brakes?" At some point "parking brake" became the proper term. But I miss the hint of drama that went with "emergency brake." I'm sad, too, that almost all the old folks are gone who would call the accelerator the "foot feed." Didn't you ever wait at the street for your daddy to come home, so you could ride the "running board" up to the house? Here's a phrase I heard all the time in my youth but never anymore- "store-bought." Of course, just about everything is store-bought these days. But once it was bragging material to have a store-bought dress or a store-bought bag of candy. "Coast to coast" is a phrase that once held all sorts of excitement & now means almost nothing. Now we take the term "world wide" for granted this floors me. On a smaller scale, "wall-to-wall" was once a magical term in our homes. In the '50s, everyone covered his or her hardwood floors with, wow, wall-to-wall carpeting! Today, everyone replaces their wall-to-wall carpeting with hardwood floors. Go figure. When's the last time you heard the quaint phrase "in a family way?" It's hard to imagine that the word "pregnant" was once considered a little too graphic, a little too clinical for use in polite company So we had all that talk about stork visits and "being in a family way" or simply"expecting." Apparently "brassiere" is a word no longer in usage. I said it the other day and my daughter cracked up. I guess it's just "bra" now "Unmentionables" probably wouldn't be understood at all. I always loved going to the "picture show," but I considered "movie" an affectation. Most of these words go back to the '50s, but here's a pure-'60s word I came across the other day - "rat fink". Ooh, what a nasty put-down! Here's a word I miss- "percolator." That was just a fun word to say. And what was it replaced with? "Coffee maker." How dull. Mr. Coffee, I blame you for this. I miss those made-up marketing words that were meant to sound so modern & now sound so retro. Words like "DynaFlow" and "Electrolux." Introducing the 1963 Admiral TV, now with "SpectraVision!" Food for thought- Was there a telethon that wiped out lumbago? Nobody complains of that anymore. Maybe that's what castor oil cured, because I never hear mothers threatening kids with castor oil anymore. Some words aren't gone, but are efinitely on the endangered list. The one that grieves me most is "supper". Now everybody says "dinner." Save a great word. Invite someone to supper & discuss those fender skirts...

  18. So I'm parking my sparkling new 2014 truck in our parking structure at work and I see a particularly attractive. oung blond really eyeing me. She gets in a car directly across from me and is really checking me out as I get out of my truck. I smile at her and she drives up to the ground level and come right in front of me as I get to the top of the stairs and she stops and rolls down her window. Now I'm 58 years old with a beer belly (small, mind you) and I'm starting to feel pretty peppy about this time. The pretty young thing smiles and blushes, I say "hi". She then asks "how do you like your truck? I have horses and need a new tow vehicle. " Oh well...feeling pretty peppy for a minute or two was pretty neat.

  20. So far I've talked to Mcgaughys and Belltech. Belltech told me they haven’t tested anything on the 4wd yet and the don't recommend trying to use any of their 2wd products on a 4wd. Mcgaughys has a 2/4 kit but I personally don't like it, They did tell me that the rear parts are all the same but they don’t have anything available to get the front lower than 2 inches. If anyone knows of anything else available I'd like to know

  21. I love reading these posts, I was so fortunate to find my 2014 Black AT fully loaded 6.2l truck on the lot at the 2nd dealer I went to. turns out it was the only one in the state like it! they weren't real happy to give much of a discount on it because it was so rare. and the 1st dealer I talked to located it but didn't think the dealer who had it would be willing to part with it. my only gripe is the fact it came with the crappy 18" chrome wheels and the AT has way too much chrome on it already. so I have blacked out the chrome on the mirrors and the door handles with 3m Gloss black vinyl wrap. it looks as goof as paint and a fraction of the cost. as soon as I get some different wheels ill be blacking out the chrome on the doors and just below the roll up door glass. why on earth they decided to black out the chrome bumpers and leave all the other crappy chrome accents on the truck is beyond me! if I wanted chrome I could have got any other truck on the lot equipped that way. so I guess the good news is I didn't have to wait, I thought I was going to buy a tundra but the GMC sierra won me over for about the same money as a platinum tundra. dealer 1 tried to sell me a 5.3 equipped AT because they didn't have the 6.2, and I am so glad I did my homework, and got the 6.2 I love the stereo, the nav, and the MPG ive been averaging 23 mpg on the highway at sustained speeds of 75-80 mph and even towed a 4 bike trailer with 4 dirtbikes and a truckload of gear and guys over the rocky mountains and still managed 15.5 MPG! my Toyota Tacoma got 19 mpg on the same trip empty! I put flomaster exhaust on it and I grin every time I hear it! I sold my 2012 Centennial edition Z06 corvette and miss it, but now I can live vicariously through my GMC! LOL

  23. Not sure about headers. But changing the exhaust and the air intake to aftermarkets that are less restrictive can help the mileage. Also if you wanted to squeeze every bit that you can, you could lower the back end a bit to level or come closer to leveling with the front and then install a skid plate that covers as much under the vehicle as you can cover. Should help squeeze more mileage. It would help more on highway than in the city tbh. Also try not to carry anything in the truck that you do not have to carry. Probably the BIGGEST factors, or atleast in my testing they were: Cut idle time to a minimum, don't Start the engine until your ready to roll Radio, this can affect how you drive, by this I mean try listening to more of music that keeps you relaxed more than something that would cause you to gun it all the time Map out your trip as efficiently as possible. Traveling a route that takes you 5 minutes longer is better if it requires you to stop and go less than a route that takes less time but has a few extra stops. This also contains the advice that the 'fastest' route, isn't always the shortest or the most efficient And the biggest factor of all! Driving habits! This is not to say that you are a bad driver or a speed demon, but as previously stated and as you've probably been told by several others before, easing into the accelerator and getting up to 30 mph over the course of say 10-15 seconds is much much easier and less stressful, and therefore far more efficient, than if you were to try to get from 0-30 before the next time you have to blink! I have adjusted my driving habits since I got the truck. I turned a 15 MPG / 20 minute / 14 mile trip to school in the mornings into a 17-18 MPG trip / 24 minute / 16 mile trip. These numbers are an average over the course of around 10 trips for each route, almost identical time of morning, almost identical outside temps, identical traffic patterns Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  26. +2 If you violate a law in a state and get locked up, it is 100% your fault. Some states don't recognize any others permits, you might even print out a copy for every state you drive through just for a quick reference.

  33. There is a pretty nice looking girl around town driving a lifted cummins crew cab, caught my attention. The best thing I ever saw was at 4 wheel jamboree in Indy last year. A girl had a black, crew cab, '07+ Silverado with a 6" lift and 35's, had pink accents and a sticker on the back that said "daddy's money and mamma's good looks". Had to give her credit for that, at least she is honest and true to the song haha.

  37. I'm 27 and from all the stories my family has told me about the 50's and 60's I would give anything to go back and live in that era. Back when hard work got you somewhere, technology didn't rule our lives, education and family values were a staple in life, the cars, life was just more simple then. I guess you could say I'm jealous of all you that got to grow up in that time period. If time travel was a real thing I would go back to the 50's and never come back.

  38. What is a GM truck doing at a Ford dealer? Do you think the prior owner had so many problems that he wouldn't buy another GM vehicle? And went to a Ford dealer and traded it in. Also I wouldn't buy a GM vehicle from a Ford dealer. Nor would I buy a Ford vehicle at a GM dealer. Just in case you have to take it back for repairs. How many Ford dealers do you think have a lot of Tech ll laying around for diagnosing a GM vehicle? Just food for thought. If you are like my kids what I have to say doesn't mean a lot.

  39. No way would I get rid of mine! I love this thing....well as much as you can love a hunk of metal, plastic and leather. I get excited every time I have to drive somewhere, I feel like I am 16 again (I'm 37). The way this thing just rolls down the road is amazing. I feel like I am just floating along in my little capsule completely detached from outside world. I test drove every make of half ton truck and this was hands down the best IMO. The only thing that came close to me was the Tundra but even still it was an easy decision to make. Did I mention how fun this 6.2 is to drive. Hands down the nicest vehicle I have ever owned.

  42. Shield is just fine. Everybody likes to say they own a Cadillac just because they can. Own SWs from Sigma on up, started with the Sig (inexpensive) and still like it because it feels good in my hand. The *G* guys at the range have all read about the slam on the Sigs and SDs. They don't like to admit, but they confirm they shoot well. I tell everybody to go shoot everything they can get their hands on before buying. Just too bad you couldn't do a blind taste test? I think people would be surprised in the end.

  43. Alright so here is my retrofit. Everything has just taken plenty patience & time, getting the work done, getting the lights back, installing was super easy, but then I ran into issues. I needed a relay etc. etc. I also need a warning canceler that shoud be here tuesday since I'm running into buzzing/flickering issues. I did manage to get the lights functioning last night though and I'm amazed at the result. I took some pictures for your viewing pleasure. Phil at http://www.fastheadlights.com/ did all the work on my headlights. If you guys aren't confident in doing your own work on a 1000$+ headlight give him a call I definitely recommend checking out his work. Here's what I had done to the lights. - Cleared (remove orange sidemarkers) - LED Switchbacks (white driving turn signals/flash amber when on) - FXR 3.0 Retrofit - 5000K TRS HID's, TRS Ballasts, TRS Relay - Warning Canceler (Coming soon) - ORACLE Colorshift Halos (waiting on control box, had a faulty one from oracle) Here's the outcome as of right now. The lights are 90% done, just need my new control box and my warning canceler and i'll be set. Let me know what you guys think, any questions feel free to shoot. Oh yeah and if you talk to Phil, tell him EChavez sent ya ;)
