  6. Installed a 32" LED light bar behind the grille and wired up a couple switches. The rock light switch has nothing to power on yet though. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

  7. i used SEM colour coat (adhesion promoter and then the 'graphite' colour) when i did the interior of my '89 back in 2012. the interior was the classic 10 different shades of grey and i wanted to make everything match. i pulled out EVERYTHING and painted it - even the metal seat brackets!! it looked awesome... and still does. i've been amazed at how it's held up! center console lid while in progress: finished door panel and everything reinstalled. some of the greys look different, but that's from different materials and how the light bounces

  8. Saw this on-line, looks like a good deal for some easy added horsepower. Anyone tried them, any feedback? Thinking about starting with 2, then maybe work my way up to a 6 pack.

  9. I pulled home the wife’s Mother’s Day present. I wanted a new Camaro SS, she wanted a side by side. Mommy won and so did the little daughter. Truck pulled 20 ft trailer pretty well. 30 mph crosswind, got 9.9 mpgs

  10. It is funny because I order a truck so I do not get a sunroof. Don’t want one. I don’t mind hitting a switch in the cab to turn lights on in the box. The less wiring to rot away and short out in a truck, the better. We never used to even have lights in the box. I also tried to order my AT4 without the fancy tailgate as i use my truck as a truck and can see that gimmick failing in some way one day. Contrary to most I don't want an IPad on my dash. I prefer good old reliable buttons that work in the winter. All the new computers that control the truck in a skid drive me nuts. if

  11. I received my first vaccine last night which in itself is not newsworthy. However, getting to this point is very big news. Without considering the politics or supply issues, it is absolutely a herculean effort to vaccinate the world's population in such a relatively short period of time. I was at one walk-in centre in a small city with dozens of stations jabbing people of similar ages all day long in <10 min intervals. It truly boggles the mind to appreciate that what I witnessed was a small drop in a very large bucket! I thanked the volunteer who administered my dose and mused how hist

  13. I think the HD twins are the best looking pickups on the road. I personally find the lower trim levels have the most appeal. Built in navigation is a nice feature but would have little impact on my buying decisions. I've been married to my navigation system for 45 years and she won't let me buy a newer one!

  15. Finally knocked out another project. When we bought the house, it only had the deck. You were trapped up there and had to go through the house to get out on the lower patio. I installed the landing and stairs, so now the kids have an easier path to the trampoline and sandbox. (Great for tracking sand into the kitchen) Trex decking and Trex signature aluminum railing. It looks nice, but not cheap stuff. Just this flight of stairs cost me about $4k in materials. I can't imaging having to pay a builder to do this, I spent 4+ weekends on it and had some family help lift the stringers into pla

  17. Yall are way too concerned with what majority has or doesn't have on the road. Lol Frankly I see a lot of stock silver and a lot black, lots of methods, and lots of fuels, etc.. etc.. idg a ****** what people have, I'm only concerned with what I think looks good on my vehicle. Personally, I like black rims typically and bronze when it works. and methods are great wheels and some fuel wheels.. I don't like stock, silver look. But again, that's my opinion and to each their own. You gotta like what you have on your truck. Forget what you see elsewhere. What looks best with your colors

  18. Took a little road trip, about 650 miles there and back, all highway cruising along at 72ish as I wasn't in a hurry. Gotta say I really like this truck. Adaptive cruise control was made for this kind of trip, really works quite well. my setup - 20' High Country with a GM 2" lift kit, Bilstein 5100's all around, adjustable up front. I've got the GM CAI and recently installed the Borla touring cat back. 285/65 BFGs. No drone, wooo! no drone detected - so happy with that purchase. 19mpg round trip. not bad. Got home and gave her a hand wash, and finally cracked open the Adams

  19. Using your truck for Overlanding/Camping/Light Offroad duty? Post your mods and details of products here. Truck: 2019 Trail Boss Custom with 5.3 and 6L80 Rear Rack: I cut up a 2000 Suburban factory roof rack and placed it on custom stake pocket mounts. I then used the widest Thule Probar and matching feet to mount to the factory roof rack now serving as bed rails. Tepui Kukenam 3, Smittybilt 6.5' Awning, X-Bull Hi Lift mounts Bumpers: I have a GoRhino BR5.5 Winch bumper fitted with a Smittybilt X2O 12k winch. I added the light bar mount recently(no pic).

  20. Most of my spare time has been spent in the garage working on various projects. Built an under seat storage box for my truck, a shop clock from a 24” cast iron gear, and I’m finishing up a 20 ton press.

  21. There was a day when I'd wake up with a hangover that was linked to excessive enjoyment the day before. This morning's hangover is from cutting the grass yesterday! I have been a holdout amongst my senior friends and not paid to have this service done by others. In anticipation of this stage, my wife presented me with a quote from a popular lawn care company. My wife says I'll free up more time to do other things. Too much "free time" could lead to the old fashion way of creating a hangover! I have developed a profound appreciation for those seniors dealing with an inability to travel a

  23. Thanks for the tip on the headlamp fluid, well aware of that one as I have put new headlights in my truck. The fish appreciate it too!

  24. I know the Moly coated version is really expensive Jim but totally worth the price kicking out an additional 15 horsepower. And don't forget to order some headlamp fluid. Save on shipping cost. Skyhooks and a bench stretcher are great options as well. Especially for small garages.

  25. Ram and the new F-150 are game changers. GM is behind the curve in terms of interiors and innovation. Mechanically solid trucks, but don't have as much "wow" factor. A big part of it IMO is the asinine packaging. Ford and Ram let you spec the trucks a lot more a la carte. With GM things are overly bundled into sometimes weirdly incompatible bundles. Then there are just some head scratchers like offering 3 different transmissions and 2 versions of the 5.3L engine.

  27. I am pretty new to the truck ownership world. Rode in plenty but never owned one, I spent months test driving and researching every brand and ultimately ended up with the truck i really wanted, GMC Sierra SLT. For me GM trucks just have that correct balance of simplicity and refinement. For the last 15 years i have driven mostly Mid to High tier German cars and there was up until recent years an emphasis on understated luxury, for me my GMC is as close as i can get to that point without complicating matters with huge infotainment screens and electrical gemics. I am not sure outsi

  29. We have hazardous waste days put on by our county a couple times a year. They take flammable liquids at that time. Check to see if you have anything like that around you. Any chance it’s ethanol free or stabilized? If so, could check with a neighbor or family member that still uses a 2 stroke engine. Even if not stabilized, it would probably burn just fine. I’d just put a small amount in a larger fresh batch and use it up.

  30. All new setup for this year. Stanley 2000psi 1.4 gpm pressure washer. Chemical Guys Torq foam cannon. Triple sediment filters and a Deionizing setup. No spots. Also got a Porter Cable polisher and a bunch of pads. Blackfire polishes and waxes. Real quality microfiber towels for specific uses. Paint correction soon as it warms up. F the cold weather already. I'm going balls out to have the cleanest truck around. How do you keep your rig sanitary? Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

  33. I keep my truck extremely clean. I love the emblems on these trucks however they drive me crazy trying to clean around them. You can see how dirty the paint was when the emblems were removed. A friend of mine owns a company that does vinyl decals and wraps so I had him hook me up. Unless you knew, you wouldn't know any better. Besides, these make it more aerodynamic

  35. Ever hear of me? I'm Mr. Nobody. If nobody want's one I'm the guy that wanted it. My truck is now 7 years old, has 135K miles on it and has a 6L80E which I really REALLY like. Everyone is WRONG. Have to be. Because if he wasn't then I wouldn't be Mr. Nobody. I'd be Mr. Everyone. There's the trick....loose the thermostat and use a PAO/POE based fluid and change it like you care if it lives or not.

  36. No issues with that... Just stay int he slow lane. I don't care, when I lead, I move back to he slow lane. I leave the passing lane open, always. We almost got in an accident because a texter lost control in front of us, ran offroad from the left lane to the right shoulder, then back to the left shoulder... Thankfully I avoided all as I passed... After that, I had to get a massage at our destination... I was so tense. People need to pay attention. I don't care about speed, it's the damn texters or people watching tv on their phone.

  39. Started cleaning up the Borla exhaust. Cleans up pretty good with some 800 grit sandpaper. My goal is to have it clean as a whistle underneath the whole truck by next week. I'm changing the two rubber hangers on the tailpipes to shorter ones too. The body lift made the exhaust lower than the bumper. I got a good start on it this weekend. Then in a couple weeks the paint correction. Should be ready in a few weeks for the local Shows at Dennys and Culvers.[emoji1][emoji1787][emoji2957][emoji13] Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

  40. You're a hero for giving these children a second chance for a proper upbringing. Thank you. I was fortunate to know the towing capabilities of my truck when looking for a trailer and was able to find a proper match. I knew about the re-gearing option and the various ways to deal with heavier tongue weights. For the same reason you are hesitant to buy a used vehicle with unknown history is the same reason I wouldn't choose to add red flags to my vehicle. I'd seriously look at trading the truck or the trailer. If I was looking for a trailer the size of your Rockwood, I'd set my sights on a

  43. Very True However, (gimme a second to put my flame suit on real quick) if I was going to guess, which admittedly means there is no real basis for this other than friendly banter between myself and my fellow friends/acquaintances of a roughly approximate age as myself, the desire to go "bad boy black" with wheels and paint usually tapers off in people as they progress through life. I still like black wheels, especially on dirt bikes where up until a few years ago most every wheel for the past 30 years has been brushed aluminum...BLAH. I personally prefer a little bit of pain
