    I added a 10 meter / 11 meter radio to my truck. I have been a huge fan of the HR2510 sense I was a teen in the late 80's when I had one. I found one for a good price in great shape on ebay and had to have it. However, there is no simple way to install it so I cut and welded myself some custom mounts to install the radio and antenna. I did my best to make it as clean of an install as I could. The radio is powered by my 2nd battery. Antenna match is spot on and so far the radio works great. I might even get my ham license again. But we will see on that. I should add that up in the backwoods of Maine (where I live) there is often no cell service. This is the best way to keep in touch with people when you are offroad. Most times it is the only way.

    Don't get why some are so hung up on numbers. Does the truck work for you when you're in the drivers seat? Is everyone passing you flipping you off? Dated engine that flat out works, want a fast truck? Why? I work in my truck not race. Trucks have capabilities, not speed performance.

    Texas heat unfortunately has me getting up really early or working later into the evening to mod the truck. Sorry for the crappy pics but just finished my install of the new heated steering wheel, and leather shifter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can try and disconnect the battery and see if that resets it. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    Yes lots of people have... You take your 2 wheel drive truck to the chevy dealer and pick out the 4x4 truck that you like best, negotiate a price and whatever you lose out on trading in your 2 wheel drive will be much less than the nightmare of trying to upgrade your 2 wheel drive to 4x4 by buying parts....

    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with ZROADZ in any way, just a forum member who offered to help them start a group-buy on GM-trucks. A lot of us have had our eyes on the hood hinge kit for a while so I figured a group-buy would be a great opportunity to leverage our buying power. This GB will run from June 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018. The product: ZROADZ is hosting a group-buy for us on their 2014 – 2017 Silverado and Sierra 1500 hood hinge LED kits (part number Z362081-KIT2). The kit includes 2 – 3” LED pods and brackets that attach to the hood hinges. Link here: https://www.zroadz.com/product/zroadz_z362081_kit2_hood_hinges_mounting_kit_2014_2018_chevy_silverado_gmc_sierra_1500 The savings: The discount will be by way of rebate meaning we will pay full price up front and receive a rebate check in July for the final discount based on the number of buyers from our forum. Rebates are as follows: < 10 participants 10% 11-15 participants 15% 16-20 participants 20% 21 + participants 25% AND an extra 10% OFF coupon code for any product until December 31, 2018. In other words, we are guaranteed AT LEAST 10% off your purchase. Note: ZROADZ will be offering a similar "general" rebate for hood hinge kits (for all makes) purchased in June, however, you will only be able to apply for one rebate. The base rebate $$ amount will be the same but our GM-truck forum group-buy rebate could be higher if we get more involved so make sure you follow the rules below. The process: If you would like to participate in the group-buy, type in “GM-Truck Forum” in the Additional Note section at checkout. This is so they can track forum member purchases to determine the final discount. After you purchase your kit, feel free to leave a note in this thread so we can track numbers and have an idea what discount threshold we are at. Once you receive your kit fill out the rebate application here (https://www.zroadz.com/rebate). As mentioned above the number of people from our forum that buy in will dictate the final rebate in July, however we are guaranteed at least 10%. Lets do this!!!! WF41

    I have the Atak, and the cold start is pretty damn loud. Driving around you can tell when it goes into 4 cylinder mode. The drone is not terrible, but I ended up throwing in the range afm disabler to keep it in V8 mode. I have the dual side exit, so not sure if the sound would be different while towing with the dual rear exit. While in the cab under normal driving conditions the exhaust just has a nice deep tone, when you get on it you definitely are reminded that you have that exhaust on there.

    I think we should all let him just do his own research, it’s very easy to do so and if he wants to buy an older year truck a few thousand away ( literally $1K per year difference) from a brand spanking new one, well, that’s completely up to him. I’m sure there’s a lot more going on with his budget then we know. All be safe and God Bless Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The powertrain warranty on a 2015 is 5 years ,100,00 miles.The eight speed M5U has been a problem since it came out in 2014. I am the transmission guy at a GMC -Buick dealer and hate that transmission. It was released before it was ready and left in the hands of the dealer mechanics to try and fix what GM should have straightened out before releasing this horrible transmission. I don't know if all the complaints can ever be satisfactorily repaired. Too many bandaids thrown at a pisspoor design. I have been replacing valve bodies that have been on national backorder and damn near impossible to get to try and fix some shift issues. The tcc shudder is another problem with this transmission. Only the canyon and colorado get the triple flushes now. The rest get one flush and out the door.Good luck with that repair.Update after update and fast adapt learns and on and on and on.Don't know what the answer is?Maybe the ten speeds will be better.......

    My 2011 LT. Yes it’s a 6.0. I bought it with the lift already on it. She hauls and runs great. 8 inch lift with 37s on 20x14 fuel Mavericks. Has K&N intake (on when bought) and a magnaflow muffler. Just rebuilt whole steering system. Next thing getting done is a set of 4.88 or 5.13 gears. Can’t decide which yet.

    Lifts typically aren't what add the most stress when lifting a truck. Moving to a larger and heavier tire causes way more stress than the lift kit itself. In my opinion that stress is fairly insignificant overall. Many people will tell you lift kits mess with angles, but most reputable lift companies have engineers that work to equalize angles and minimize stress on any and all components. I believe the misconception that lifts cause so much more stress comes from people running cheap/under-engineered lifts and the older days when guys would crank the torsion bars as high as possible and completely destroy CV axles, etc. As long as you avoid leveling kits in excess of 2" you should be fine. If you do lift the truck I would go with a quality brand McGaughy's, BDS, Zone, CTS, and FTS are all great brands. All of these lifts provide brackets and other adjustments to keep angles as close to stock as possible. My BDS lift rides better than the suspension of most stock trucks. I have had a CV axle replaced (twice), but the original wasn't bad, the dealership made a stupid mistake when working on the truck and damaged the axle then installed the new one incorrectly, needless to say that dealer doesn't work on my truck anymore.

    I guess some just don't like feeling like the "little guy" when it comes to power. Ah well. I'd rather have the tried and tested proven reliability of the 6.0 over some unknown new engine.

    A Chilton repair manual will have detailed instructions. They are available at most auto parts stores for about $25. Hayes will work too, but its not as complete (even though they are made by the same company). I don't think you need to disassemble the box. Just find where the water is coming out and hit it with some sealer. You can also look online for parts diagrams or exploded views. Google your rig with the words : "Parts fiche" If you really cant find anything online, go to the dealer parts counter and tell them you want to buy parts from them, but you need to take it apart first to see whats broken, and ask them to print out the diagrams and or instructions. If they think they are going to make a sale, they will hook you up. Maybe its kind of sleazy to do this, but hey - the dealer is supposed to help out the customers out - not just try to bleed them dry.

    Yes we did this in Kentucky lol.. Seems they like to stick the storm drains way out in the lane not paint them or provide any lighting. I just clipped it I guess we were lucky it didn't flip us like it apparently does 4 or five times a year according to the locals in that area.

    Yeah, a 50/50 mix works great in both the Suburban and my 2002 Silverado. Mileage doesn't take as much of a hit either. What I don't understand is GM isn't offering FF in the new trucks/SUV's anymore. I wish it was at least an option you could order one with. Give us a choice. Not like much would be needed other than a sensor, ECM tune and the yellow cap. The rest of the vehicle is already set up to handle it.

    I installed a couple pods in my rear bumper but I spliced into the reverse lights. When it goes in reverse they light up along with the lights in the tail light assembly.

    If you went with the manual floor mount 4wd shifter its totally feasible. You would need a trans shop to swap the tail cone and tail shaft over to a 4wd setup. Put in a transfer case front diff and cv axles. Most front hubs have the splines in them already. Maybe swap trans mounts. You would not have a 4wd light in dash and would have to supply power by way of an aux switch to power the solenoid on the front diff. I have helped accomplish this on a 03’ superduty. But we had a wrecked truck complete to swap parts from so it was not bad. In reality it is not worth the cost to convert on a modern truck.

    Whatchutalkinbout! Yeah, I did put them up to the truck and was like, unless you look really close and in the light, you can't really tell they are dark(I mean DARK) blue, almost looks black! I'll wait for that airbrush lady to come back in town and paint them for me. I'm going to pick up a half pint of paint for her to use. I might even color match the inside trims.. haha!

    While I am one of the guys that spent the money on a catch can, reading this post is awesome even if it means I wasted my money on the can. Hopefully we continue to see this kind of longevity in these engines.

    You’re fine. Only issue would be if you were driving in really dusty conditions like on a dirt road and was sucking dust into the air intake. Other than that I would reconnect it and don’t worry about it.

    Those little motors are cute / cool but, I’ll be sticking with a V8 in my truck, made the mistake of getting the 4.3 on my ‘14 cause it looked good on paper but, nothing can replace the smoothness of a v8 and the truck loses almost all of its macho factor once you drop below 8cyl in a gasser.

    Because 22's are for skating in style down the concrete freeways, so you typically see low-pro street/highway tread patterns. If you off-road with a low-profile sidewall on a 22" wheel, you will damage the wheel eventually. Even my 20's are too big for my liking when doing truck things. I am sure you can buy a BFG KO2 or something in a 22" if you want, but if it is the stock tire size and you run over a 4" rock, say goodbye to your beads. You will find more 22" options when you do to a 33" or larger tire, which would require a level or lift. Let us know what you end up doing.

    On the sliding bar it says i will get 99mpg if i just keep coasting down hill like that for about 400 miles My average is around 16-17 Bigger tires, level, v8 only, not to light throttle
