    '15 Silverado 1500 CCSB
  1. Really? Id be curious to know if I could swap the foam over from an '09 to my '15. While they added legroom, the backseats in my old truck were much more comfortable.

    Damn rainy season, she was so clean!
  3. 2002 Silverado 6.0 A/C compressor model #

    Napa pulls this guy up https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/DEO4710315 There are other models(remans, not really different) listed. Your best bet is to crawl under with a flashlight and see if you can see a part #. I can't speak to how yours is setup, but just changing the belt on mine(squeak) was a pain because it was a stretch to fit, separate from the serpentine. I'd look in the front passenger side corner(bottom) of the engine bay.The oldest truck we've got in our fleet at the moment is an '05(sold our '02 a couple years back) and that's where she's located. I just can't remember for the life of me if the '02/'05 have separate belts, or if they're run off the serpentine. If separate, there's a little tool to be used or alot of screwing around with wrenches/flatheads getting the belt on.
  4. Trade in now or wait for 2019???

    To me, dealers seem like they are trying to move the older models out. I'd go for it now if you're dead set on the higher trim. If not, keep your current ride. My 3/4 ton was an LT and to be honest, it didn't lack any features that made me regret my decision to buy it. The only option I had them add on was leather, as I had an 07 half-ton GMC that had the lint roller seats that drove me nuts. The '19's are a bit Ford/Tundra-esque to me, and while I left room for them to grow on me after seeing them in person(like the Tahoe redesign,) I was out and decided not to wait after seeing there was no green offering. I almost bit the bullet on an '18 Sierra in graphite/slate(at least it had a green hue) when I checked autonation and found the '15 ltz in green. The front end I loved, 36k miles, 15k cheaper than an '18, CPO, and the color combo I loved. It's your call, but I would not bite on the new body, at least not yet - grab an '18 Sierra! That's a front end I could live with =)

    Well, I finally traded my old truck a few weeks ago. Dream color combo and the front end I prefer did me in! For some odd reason, the chrome has grown on me - I still think I need to break it up a little bit, but i'm certainly not ready to black everything out like I was on my old truck. Edit: I forgot the mention, these trucks drive ridiculously smooth. My old truck's felt like a covered wagon in comparison!
  6. Is it me, or do the mirrors look like they fold down like the Dodge mirrors do? Something funky looking to me on the arm they mount to.
  7. I'll tell you that our LBZ at work(minor tune) smokes our '15 LML and our '14 Dodge. I think the TM guts the new trucks, but the dodge did just pull an 80k # mobile excavator down the road the other day(albeit sideways on take off- forgot to put it in 4wd.) off topic It's also had 5 recalls though. 2 minor radio/satellite ones on delivery, steering stabilizer mount, abs would supposedly quit from a rubbing wire, and a randomly exploding airbag. We always joke, that if you manage to get it off the road after the steering gets sloppy and brakes go, the airbag would go off and give you a heart attack. To be fair to FCA, our '07 LMM did have a shrapnel airbag in it.
  8. Im not sure why this gets a name or it's own press event.... this is a trumped up LTZ Plus Package. "Ultimate" - 'We checked every box.' I dig the wheels, I just wish they were 18's or maybe 20's max. I realize these trucks won't be leaving the road but still, I wouldn't be comfortable bouncing over a curb or wheel stop even, with 22's.
  9. Enjoy the gas mileage and reliability while you can, VW owners! The EPA is here to ruin your day. There's got to be a VW engineer cracking up that it took them this long to find out they had a workaround for their testing. I WISH GM did this, it would save alot of people doing it after the fact some money.
  10. Im at 108k on my '09. Oil, tires, couple of batteries and need to swap out the bump stops as I recently noticed they're dry rotting. Other than that, I haven't touched anything. Truck runs great, seems like less of a dog vs when it was new. If I could get the 6.0L in a half-ton, i'd sign any paper they want. My hope is to find a '15 3/4 ton in Green that someone can't sell(I love the new green.) and will give me a decent deal on it. Plus, I can't wait too long, as GM is ditching green again.
  11. Looking at a 2015 2500HD Z71...

    I've got an '09 CC Standard bed, LT Z71 4x4. I change my oil at 6-7k(full synthetic). It's got the 6.0 and it just hit 108k miles. I swear it drives better than it did new. Tows fine, mileage sucks when towing but hey, I don't do it that often.
  12. 2016 Redesign wtf

    The GMCs, in my opinion seem to have a much cleaner refresh versus the Chevy. Someone mentioned rope lights and I started cracking up, but my biggest beef is what looks like extra pieces below the lower LEDs and at the bottom of the grille. I don't know what it is, but those extra lines and joints screw me up! OT: I'm still in my '09 3/4 ton silverado and love it. If currently possible, i'd swap it for a '15 version(LT Z71 6.0) in Rainforest Green in a heartbeat. The K2's (Chevys anyway) take me back to the first Chevy(and truck) I fell in love with; a 1998 Chevy dually in green. My biggest gripe in my truck has been the dash, i've got one crack by the passenger side airbag. At work, we have all 3/4 ton silverados ranging from 03-2015(03 is being sold this year thankfully) and one '08 Avalanche. I replaced the dash(About 900 7mm screws ) in the Avalanche 6 months ago because it was cracked beyond belief and would rattle around town. That thing does drive like a car though.
  13. Sounds like a ship creaking? Or at least that's what I imagine when my truck does it. It's done it since it was new. I've had zero problems with the truck but it does always give me a little pause when backing out of the driveway in the morning and I hear those creaking noises. Funny that it's made it over to the new generation.
  14. As much as I dig Cummins, their reputation when it comes to V8s isn't sterling. The words "Triple Nickel" ring in my head, but perhaps Cummins has changed their approach.
  15. Is this where a facepalm would be appropriate? Edit: Sad this is my first post after being a lurker but check the man's sig. That good looking black chevy is his, I believe. Either that, or my deduction abilities aren't that great.
