    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 off of them. like i said - the interior still looks the same today! ** i hadn't done the center console when i took these pics - but it matches and still looks awesome!

    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 place.

    I took a picture of it. Haven't taken many pictures since I did the body lift and 38's. For a big girl I think she purty.[emoji7][emoji3059] Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    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!

    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

    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 base 2500/3500. I find the most basic WT has a list of standard features that exceed the options list on your '72 Ford!

    It's no accident that we read of folks with K2s having more issues with their 6L80s than the previous generation. Heat is the transmissions enemy and they beg to be tuned. I had BlackBear tune my truck primarily to disable AFM and he tweaked the motor's calibrations mildly at my request but the very best part of the tune was what Justin did to the transmission. I was completely happy with how the truck drove before the tune and amazed at how the transmission performed afterwards, like a different vehicle and for the better!

    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.

    Just posting today, but I installed my new bumper over the weekend. I raptor lined the bumper and painted the inserts red. Before I put the new bumper on, I textured the corner of the truck behind the bumper and under the tailgate. Finally I painted my tips on my muffler to make them a glossy black over the matte black. I am going to raptor line the side steps next. Quite honestly, don't cannot believe how thin and cheep the stock bumper is...

    These are getting stupid expensive. I have a redline 442 in my shop right now selling for $800. It's not mint by any means either. A lot of the beat up ones get $50+ Here's some of my stock. Need any let me know Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    It's shocking what thrives in basically waste water run-off from the streets. I don't know how much salt gets in there from winter ice melting, but it is definitely present in the water. Due to the elongated shape of my lot, I have over 100' of frontage, which is the most of all my neighbors. Last year when the quarantine started I spent about 1 hour a day cutting down the willowy brush that had sprouted along the banks so I have a clear view from my deck. If the other neighbors let that stuff keep growing, it will block their houses from view and it will fell like I have a private pond. Some mornings it will be a pair of geese. Yesterday I saw a single swan out there, but opening the patio door to get a photo scared him off. It is excellent as an ice rink in the winter months. I shared snow clearing duties with a couple other dads and we had good skating for nearly 6 weeks this year.

    The water is a detention pond only. It never fully drains since its deeper than the ground water level. So the frogs and a pair of ducks call it home.

    Agree with Jim here, a regear would be my fix but I honestly wasn't factoring in people and gear to max out the 3.73s and going waaay past the 3.42s the 2500/3500 gambit is the best choice. I sympathize with O.P as I bought a 16 5.3l because I wanted black, leather and CC short bed with the face-lift model and color match bumpers. My only regret is getting some with an 8 speed but that's what I found that I wanted to the tee and sometimes there's one small change that just isn't perfect for what you need it for. Fortunately people have a new generation to trade in for, so there's plenty of trucks available. Advise to the O.P, look out of your state for them. I was when looking for mine and found some good deals, but before I pulled the trigger on one from Arizona I found the one I have. Just ask for pictures of the frame for rust and other concerns. I was given many from that particular dealer and I was fully willing to fly out of state and pay for the truck if I hadn't found mine. To Jim, we all know what comment your referring. I think we all felt the same way about it. The o.p even stated the owners manual and door sticker didn't match which WOULD make it GMs fault. Not everybody knows about everything to look for on trucks and the propaganda from their respective manufacturers on the model l. They don't know and sometimes it's a problem and sometimes it's not. This just happened to be one of those times. Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk

    I re sprayed my a-pillars black again using Dupli-Color adhesion promoter and Vinyl/Fabric flexible coating. I originally sprayed them with SEM Bumper Coater at the recommendation of the paint shop owner but that did not hold up well at all so we’ll see how this does.

    Thank You swathdiver, silveradosid, Frankielozano214. I will look for a full axle 3.73 rear and front 3.73. If I am going to spend the money, might as well have extra tow capacity. Wish I would have bought a truck with the 3.73 in the first place. Thanks Again everyone-

    Did a few things today. First I replaced the factory horns with new ones, easier than I thought, didn't even have to pull off the front grille. Second, installed the Pedal Commander. And last, probably the easiest mod anyone can do, swapped out the remote. Got two for around $21 on Amazon. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    BEWARE!! I shipped a Denali cluster to Coastal Flash for my 2018 Silverado 2500HD diesel. Living in Canada, it just seemed like the easiest solution. It was an absolute nightmare. After shipping it to them twice and it still not being right I asked for a refund. This was a 6-month process. I heard every excuse in the book. I then got in contact with WAMS. It sure sounds like I’m not the first person to go through this. WAMS was very professional and told me to ship them my cluster so they could have a look. Once they received the cluster they fixed it and had it shipped back to me within a few days. Save yourself a huge headache and go straight to WAMS. Rick

    Change the fluid every 30k on GM Dexron 6. If you use something full synthetic like Amsoil, you could probably go 45k. If you have a good scanner, try reading converter slip rate. If you notice any funky driveability, check the slip %. The faster you can catch it before it starts hitting that 0-100rpm erratic, the less chance of internal damage from converter failure. Below is for the 6L80/90

    New app seems to be working fine for me. I was up late the other night watching a show on Netflix when I heard an unfamiliar car exhaust in my cul-de-sac. I paused the show and looked out the living room window to see some people in by circle looking in car windows while walking down the sidewalk. The unfamiliar car was going the same speed as them, and staying close. I used the app to flash my truck's lights without sounding the alarm. When they noticed the lights flashing they panicked and jumped in the car and left. I found out later the flashing lights activated my security camera at the garage door (video has since been shared with police and private security we have patrolling the community). That new feature in the updated app probably saved somebody from getting their car broken into. Since the car and people were across the circle they hadn't got to the point where my camera is activated. We have an island in the middle you have to drive around. There's 8 houses in my cul-de-sac, and they'd only made it to house #3 when I noticed them. Note to thieves: Don't come with a car with loud aftermarket exhaust if you want to remain invisible when committing crimes Note #2 to thieves: Don't steal from a military community. There's more trained killers in the area than your local ghetto, and they have the tools and skills to get the job done. The new MyChevrolet app probably saved your lives the other night.

    My only advice would be drive the only 3 I'd even consider. The 5.3-->6.2-->3.0 dizzel. I ended up with the 6.2 as I wanted that rip your head back feeling and MPGs weren't as important to me.

    Just picked up a 2019 Silverado 1500 RST Z71 (low miles), first two easy mods are going be to installing a dimming rearview mirror and getting my front windows tinted to match the factory tint on the others. Also looking for a good Tonneau cover.

    If you are current on maintenance items it's pretty much safety checks. Got enough tread, brakes, suspension tight and aligned, good wipers, washer tank full, lights all work and an oil change, pack it up and get. She don't know if you going out for milk or to Mexico...

    I'm just about to install some Rancho RS5000X shocks on my truck after noticing my OEM shocks were worn. I went with the ranchos because they weren't too expensive and I've heard the same thing as others here have mentioned about the Bilsteins being too stiff. I'll see how the 5000Xs ride and let you know.

    Had Bilstein 5100's installed in the front and rear. Front set at 2". Swapped out the stock tires for Ridge Grapplers, 275/60/20. Also had a Flowmaster FlowFX Muffler installed. 1" rear block on the way to level out the rear and give it a touch of rake again.

    Thinking just do the steps to repair powder coating, find a paint color as close as you can, or have the whole thing redone.

    You've answered your own question. You can source a rear seat without the storage compartments from an auto dismantler and swap them out if that is your only concern. You may have to get creative with matching the seat covers. I would take a ride in the back seat of a truck without the storage compartments first just to make sure. Some might think it crazy but there are plenty of folks that drop 3-4 grand on tires, wheels, and suspension after purchasing a brand new truck. Interior comfort would be higher on my list.

    I use Sport mode whenever I'm entering the freeway. Be careful when switching it on though. I was making my way onto an onramp one day & it was raining. Went to turn on the headlights & reached for the wrong switch, accidentally turning on Sport Mode. Trans downshifted and the rear end fish-tailed. My wife instantly look at me and asked "WTF was that?!?!" Turned to her with a 'oh sh*t' look on my face and said "Oops, wrong switch". She wasn't happy.

    https://shop.katechengines.com/product/174-degree-gen-5-lt-thermostat/ Another option. This one uses a factory type gasket that does not fail like the others. No tune required. No hole drilling required. But yes, radiator limited in most cases and fan switching happens way to high to be helpful. I use an inline thermostat housing from IPSCO cut into the top hose close to the OEM housing which gets gutted and a Reische Performance 55 mm 170 F thermostat. Comes with the jiggle pin...no hole required. Same size used in SBC since they were invented. Stant has a line of various thermostats. IPSCO will provide the Super Stat of your choice with the housing and thermostat gasket and replacement part numbers.

    And how is this a serious issue? I tend to think that driving 100 + mph is a much more serious issue for the most part.
