    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

    Wow...very cool. You guys are adding some great features. All I did was replace the factory floor liners with aftermarket. Ha. Side steps will be in two weeks. Loving my new Silverado.

    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.......

    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.

    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.

    Well turns out that LTZ was really nice, EXCEPT, the tail gate was damaged. So the hunt continues. Found a really nice 2015 LT Z71 with 30k on it for $26k. Really clean and well maintained, but I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the Slate Grey Metallic. I can always add the Step Bars and Tonneau Cover. The same dealer has a 2015 LT coming in with SEW wheels, Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover, Bed Rail Lights, 4" Step Bars and Sliding Rear Window in Deep Ocean Blue Metallic. that one is $27K with 35K on it. Both have Heated Seats, Mirrors and Defroster but the Slate Grey one has the Z71 pkg. I can always add the Step bars and Tonneau. Sorry no picks of the Blue one avail. yet.

    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.

    you can reset your oil life through the DIC. Go to the page displaying oil life, and hit the right arrow on the steering wheel. I’ve been pressing the ole gas pedal the last 3.5+ years I’ve had the truck to reset it, until today lol! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This, let's face it, big little 4 banger is a cool little engine. And will likely be a fun surprise. But I think it's going to suffer from the same problem the EcoBoosts have, It'll have great fuel economy until it has to go to work.

    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.

    I will stick with a V8, preferably one with pushrods and a single cam. I have really tried to understand what you guys are so excited about on this new engine and I don't see it. I typically opt for the larger engines and like power. I pull trailers and run bigger tires on all my trucks, so I like the pep. Exciting would have been a turbo on the 5.3 or more power from the 6.2, or even turbo on the 4.3. Some of you seem to like turbos so good maybe that's what does it. I had a Duramax and it had a turbo. My tractors all have turbos...they are diesels and built differently. My opinion and I know it is not following modern wants. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    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
