  1. Here is the link to the Rough Country website for the winch plate https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-hidden-winch-mounting-plate-11004.html?find=2017-chevy-silverado-1500-4wd-739399 and here are the other pics I took during the installation : as you can see below. You need to cut the tab off of the frame Ron then you attach the brackets i chose to attach the winch to the plate before mounting it to the truck

  6. Sounds like the right fix is that they should just go back to a true key system! Those that want the vehicle to run will run those that don't turn them off pretty simple. I don't know why things need to be complicated. f*** this auto stop and push button b******* and traction control (when I turn it off I want it off.. I don't want it to come back on at 35 mph wheel spin) save us all some money. some of us actually know how to drive and use our vehicles the way that we want them used..... You do you and let us do us. You can let your vehicle run all day and do your jobs..... For everyone else who doesn't use their truck in this manner you might actually have to use your brain and remember how to turn it on and off and remove the key out of the ignition probably too hard for some.... Sorry for my rant but I'm just tired of the government And big brother imposing everything at a higher cost to us all And then all the sheep that defend them. It's amazing how and what we do to protect the stupid, And then when they still kill themselves the lawyers win a financial settlement in court for their families yet again costing us more.

  7. Wanted to make everyone aware of a special coverage if you are dealing with a faulty trans fluid temp sensor. I believe this is only for the 8 speed on the 2015 and 2016, but correct me if it applies to the 6 speed or other years as well. The sensor is attached to a wire harness inside your transmission and the original harness has been known to go bad, specifically the temp sensor. I had 2 codes light up the SES, P0700 and P0711. P0711 let's you know it's the sensor. A month and a half ago (7/29/2020), GM released a special coverage that extends the warranty to repair this, up to 10 years or 120,000 miles. It's special coverage #N192291660. They replaced the transmission wire harness (#24298757), the trans pan gasket (#24260071), trans filter (#24274402), and all trans fluid (new HP fluid - #19417577B). Additionally, it covers some of the exhaust parts too if they have to remove any to get the trans pan out (my dealer did not have to do this, most can slightly push down on the exhaust to get the pan out). But if your dealer needs to remove any of the exhaust, it's an exhaust seal and gasket that need to be replaced (#15077362 and #15035747). In addition to the SES light, apparently it can cause hard shifting when the sensor starts to go bad. I didn't experience this, but it's fairly common from what the service dept told me. You can also easily tell when the sensor is going bad by watching your trans fluid temp needle. It will erratically bounce up and down, sometimes slightly and other times it's big jumps. My 2016 GMC Sierra has the 6.2L paired with the 8 speed trans. Had this repair done under the special coverage extended warranty with 112,600 miles on my odometer. They got me in and out the same day.

  8. Not really sure yet. Still learning a lot about Chevy and the truck world... I plan on keeping this truck for a while. That being said, I had to get the front windows tinted. Got them to match the rear windows.

  11. Hey Donny I feel for you buddy. I love dogs. I have two . One is 12 and one is almost 2. I dread that day that's coming eventually. We just put down two cats, in the last year or so, that were over 20 years old each and that was tough . We still have another cat that is 23 years old and he's slowing down but is still first in line for cat treats every morning. He caught a mouse last winter .That one is going to tear my guts out when he goes. The best advice I can give is get a new dog right away. Some people say no way too soon , I say b.s. the new pup makes you happier than you think. It's your call but I've given the same advise to many people and it seems to work.

  14. I also had a Yukon a ways back... it had a 5.3 and was decently powerful, but a bit of a gas hog. Mine was a 2005, I recommend to get the 5.3 as i get 5 mpg more than the Yukon with the same driving style. Its a fine motor - and still simple enough to be reliable. Now i would not dream of modding the truck - lifting or doing anymore than going up a size on tires on stock rims. It comes down to blowing a lot of money and shortening the life of the ball joints, spindles and brakes... daily driver is best kept as GM builds it... imo.

  15. So earlier this week I stopped at our local tire shop and took the shop foreman for a drive. Couldn’t wait for my apt. Set for today. He said it is the tires. So I ordered in a set of Falken wildpeak ht02’s in and they got installed yesterday. Boy what a difference. Took them for a 40 mile run. No noise and they averaged 26.5 mpg. This is 2 plus mpg more than the duratracs did for me in 600 miles. These I felt were the best value as I priced Bridgestone duelers and Michelin’s which came in a lot higher. I want to thank all of you for your input.

  16. The midnight editions are nice. I am debating on my emblems to either color match them to the White diamond or black them. thinking color match would be different but black may pull in the grille better since the white outlines the bowtie already

  18. I think this is only true if you're making more power than the factory driver demand tables can accommodate. For example, if I'm making 100 HP more than stock thanks to a blower, the higher pedal position rows will become a limiting factor. That's all TQ MGMT is these days. Log TQ MGMT advance and it will tell you more about what's going on. (ignore TMA - tq mgmt advance - during shifts as that's there to make the shift smoother and faster.

  19. Your right. The one I have does come with a wireless remote. But some winches do not. As for the clutch lever I need to take a better look and see if I can fabricate something up

  20. Well a little background... I own a construction management company. Currently my commute is 1,700 km 1 way every 3 weeks. Once on site, it is 120 km a day (minimum) and at least 1 hour of highway driving and 6 hours of slow bumpy kidney buster driving. On a slow month, maybe 1,000 km and on a busy one, much closer to 10,000 km. Oh and did I mention that it was in the bitter cold (-15 to -40C plus heavy winds making that feel like another 10 to 30 lower) most of the time? Northern British Columbia, Canada. Enjoy. www.arrowsmithpm.com

  21. I picked this winch specifically due to the synthetic line. The pros of synthetic is that it’s lighter and a bit safer if it snaps. In Canada the Costco sells this specific winch. So picked it up for $600 but it does come with steel cable

  28. Until 2014 coolers on GM automatics were not regulated. That is no thermostat. The 6L80 was run from 2005 to 2013 without a whimper without a thermostat. No, that is not to cool.

  29. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijpr/2012/207532/ By 2010 the figure was 83.6%. The US population is increasingly and overwhelmingly concentrated in metropolitan areas. More than 90 percent of the country’s entire population growth in the last decade occurred within MSAs. This report goes on to say an additional 10% of the population lives in mirocurban defined as cities between 10 and 50K. SO nearly all the US population now lives in a city!!! That is some sad news kiddo's. Within the city is where most of the USA lives now. The new generation doesn't even want to drive nor leave their 20 mile circle. I don't know what to make of this. Long distance ability only matters to the OEM if the people buying are long distance drivers. Am I missing something? They don't make the connection between the hamburger and a cow so how do the make the jump from lithium to child labor and the carbon footprint to mine it? They don't care where the battery is junked. Out of sight is out of mind.

  33. Depending on how busy the self serve wash is, you can always use the two bucket method and hand wash in the wash bay. That's what I do in the winter. Hard to keep a black truck clean with all the salt and snow though.

  37. At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter what you use. Engines last 200-300k miles and failures/rebuilds/etc are never due to what type of filters are used in most of vehicles on the road. On top of that, most people on this forum won't even keep their new T1 past 100k miles. So again, it really doesn't matter. Use what you want. Internet search all you want. Watch all the youtube videos. Go down that hole. I've been there too. End the end, it really doesn't matter. I'm sure there will be one person who claims an oil filter blew up or their engine or their cousin's engine blew up and they blamed the filter, etc. I'm more worried about hose crimps failing and dumping oil all over the road or failed valve springs or the window leaking or some other more likely failure on these vehicles. Pick a filter, be happy. Pick a different one, still be happy. ymmv.

  40. Guys, this isn't on GM, this is your tax dollars and government once again intruding into our lives. This feature is a mandated safety feature which increases the cost of every vehicle with questionable benefits. It's not an EPA mandated feature. The vast majority of drivers are clueless on this driving "thing" and aren't into vehicles as a hobby/interest. With the "new" keyless ignitions some folks are forgetting to turn their cars off when they park them, often in their garage. A person or two died from breathing the exhaust fumes and so the government decided to impose restrictions on every vehicle when in fact Darwin's Law was working.

  41. It's most likely an EPA regulation. Our Class 8's all have auto-shutdown / no idle systems in them. I run lowbed trucks and the newest one will shut itself off even with the PTO engaged. Frustrating, dangerous, and it doesn't save a single drop of fuel because you just restart the truck to finish your work anyway. Seriously, who ever is paid to come up with this stuff over there needs to be slapped in the face with a ball of their own feces.

  42. I bet it was purposely done to appease the EPA and get brownie points for decreasing and waisting Fuel at the same time not over polluting. It’s just another way the government has got a tight hold on manufacturers which in one hand working on cutting down toxins entering our environment (good thing) and on the other hand taking away owner control of our own vehicles which is a bad thing. One thing is very clear, the newer the engine designs are getting, the tighter the noose is getting. Sent from above

  43. I think the OP has an issue with the system automatically shutting down, as described in the owners manual. The service department is going to tell him that it's working properly...which it is. He feels this is a terrible feature in that it has no way to over-ride the system which would allow the vehicle to sit running for multiple hours. If the concern is that people are leaving it running and thus putting their lives in jeopardy from deadly exhaust fumes then a MANUAL over-ride should be available to stop the vehicle from shutting itself off and display a message in the DIC that requires an acknowledgement to clear the message. If it was a function of the user to manually over-ride the system, then the fault for any exhaust related death should fall on the user who chose to over-ride the system. This over-ride feature could be programmed to require a manual over-ride after each engine start, in other words it would revert back to the auto shutdown feature once the user turned off the vehicle.

  44. "They" are the company that get sued by the lawyers us customers hire when we hurt ourselves, but don't blame ourselves. There is no big brother. Just a legal system setup to reward coffee spill-ers, and a government setup to provide teats. Welcome to the "land of the free".

  48. I'm glad to see this topic brought up. I just found this out this past weekend in the cold and snow... It is very frustrating that it shuts off after 30 minutes with out the fob and after an hour with the keys inside. I was working outside and left the truck running so I could duck in and worm up. I was shocked that it was off after a few times of warming up. If the keys are in the car it should allow you to keep it running. Crazy way to keep us from "killing" ourselves...
