  1. Nick, you won't be able to get both the NHT max-trailering package and Z71 package together, each package has their own unique shocks and springs,so it makes getting both impossible (Its always been like that since the NHT package came out in '06) Also I can tell you that the NHT package won't be available at the start of production, nor will the 3.0 diesel engine.
  2. No, the 6.2 will be available in LTZ or High Country trim only just like the current trucks.
  3. I would say Ryan is correct, all models/options won't be available at first, it'll take them a little bit to get them all out!
  4. Looks like there are tow hook delete covers on your GMC that must be changed out..... Tow Hook Installation GMC (2014 thru 2018) Remove the LH/RH bumper bracket fasteners, (qty 16) and brackets. Upon Reassembly tighten fasteners to 58 N.m (43 lb ft). Disconnect fog lamp connector. Remove tow hook delete cover fasteners (qty 8). Remove tow hook delete covers. Install front tow hook covers, P/N 23243484 and 23243485 using retained hardware.Tighten Tighten to 6 N.m (53 lb in).
  5. Cut it...... Tow Hook Replacement (2016 and Beyond) Chevy and GMC Crew Cab With Existing Tow Hooks Removal Raise and support vehicle. Driver Tow Hook Loosen tow hook through bolt and remove bolt out of frame rail enough to allow clearance for bolt head to be cut (qty 1). Cut bolt head off and remove bolt out of the outboard side of frame rail. Remove the rear tow hook bolt and remove the OE tow hook (qty 1). Passenger Side Tow Hook Remove tow hook bolts (qty 2)/nut (qty 1). Note: Passenger side tow hook bolts should not need to be cut. Swap rubber guard/seal from OE tow hooks to replacement tow hooks. Installation Caution: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems. Install new tow hooks (4) to frame rail (nut-qty 1 and bolt-qty 2 per hook) making sure that the through bolt head is facing outboard of the frame rail. Install the through bolt (3) and nut (2) and tighten to 80 N.m (59 lb ft). Install the short bolt (1) to frame and tighten to 80 N.m (59 lb ft). Lower vehicle.
  6. BTW....I'll add,no issues with my 8-spd, but I only have 7k on it and I do have a Black Bear tune, so far I love it.
  7. GM is using the 10-spd in the new Camaro ZL1
  8. Thanks, I hate Black wheels, so I took the factory Black ones off and put my American Racing chrome Cannon's on, along with a little bigger 275/65R18 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires.
  9. I have a Weathertech one for mine, don't need the visors down at all,it fits nice and tight.
  10. Not much on my mind!

      Dream of the good 'ole days when you were young and chasing girls :)

       

  11. Thats the biggest issue with the GM ones, how stupid to have the cut out under the gas pedal, I can't sell them because of that! I have Husky X-act fit and love them!
  12. Not the best pictures, just some quickies I took of my '15 Midnight Edition LTZ 6.2
  13. Get it! Don't let the need for premium gas hold you back, you won't be disappointed.
  14. 1. I'm a parts manager at a Chevy dealership, I sometimes help order and spec out new trucks for people that want specific options or items. 2. It has to be a fleet order, which shouldn't be an issue for most dealers, our sister dealership does fleet orders all the time for the city of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Co., along with surrounding cities/counties/municipalities. You can get Woodland Green as an SEO special order option, RPO code "9V5"....... 9V5 - Paints, solid, Woodland Green All normally body colored non-sheet metal parts will be Black. May require extended lead time. Door handles and mirrors will be grain Black. Deletes standard/packaged body side moldings. 1 - Requires (TGK) Special Paint and (01U) Special Paint.
  15. Actually that combo exists, but you'll probably never see one, I don't even know if any dealer knows how to order it, plus it has to be either a fleet order or the special service vehicle. The RPO code is 9G3 instead of Z71, and you don't get Z71 decals or the downhill descent control....... 9G3 - Suspension Package, off-road, for base decor vehicles Requires 4WD. Includes Z71 Off Road Suspension components, recovery hooks, (K47) high capacity air cleaner and (NZZ) transfer case shield on 4WD. Does not include any "Z71" appearance features or (JHD) Hill Descent Control. Requires (G80) heavy-duty automatic locking rear differential, (RC3) P265/70R17 all-terrain blackwall tires, (RI8) 18" Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac 265/65R18 SL 114S blackwall MT tires with aggressive tire tread, or (RC5) LT265/70R17C all-terrain, blackwall tires.
  16. He can't, he wants the NHT max-trailering pkg which is not available with Z71.
  17. I have 1.5 front leveling and 1" rear lift blocks on mine,l'll have to take and post some pictures.
  18. 3.23 will not disappoint, thats what I have, a buddy of mine has an NHT/3.42 and I've driven it quite a bit, I can't tell a difference
  19. GM does A LOT of testing in my area here, about 50 miles South of Pittsburgh, due to the mountains/hilly terrain we have, I see test vehicles all the time from both them, and Ford, they were here last year testing what I believe to be the new Cruze diesel and Z/28....got some pics of the Cruzes,but could never catch the Z/28's uncovered.
  20. On the traceability of the tune.....I had the guys at the dealership check both mine, and a co-worker of mine's trucks....I have a 2015 1500 6.2 - 8 spd., my co-worker has a 2015 2500HD 6.0 - 6 spd., the technicians could not tell either one was tuned.
  21. I had an '04 K1500 Silverado, all I did was swap out a cluster from an HD and the trans temp gauge worked, it was plug-n-play, no reprogramming needed. All the GMT800 trucks have a trans temp sensor, but only certain models had the gauge in the cluster.
