  2. I'm interested in the diablo sport. Sending a PM Edit: NVM, not compatible with 2016 Silverado.
  3. I ripped the side of my lower bumper off on a job site. I had to trim it to drive home, now it looks like crap. Anyone have the lower bumper for a 2016-2018 Silverado available? I am located in Charlotte, NC. Willing to drive a bit to get it. ~ up to 2 hours, better if located in NC, SC or GA. here is exactly what I am looking for
  4. I just upgraded the HID bulbs in my 2016 Silverado. The stock 25W HIDs were not cutting it for me. I installed a set of 35W Morimoto D5S bulbs and they are much better. Check out my install video below.
  5. Just upgraded the HID's in my 2016 Sierra. I installed the Morimoto D5S HID bulbs. They are so much brighter than the stock Philips bulbs.
  6. Turn off the auto set feature. And just manually change it to the correct time.
  7. Wait...are you trying to turn while engaged in 4wd, while on dry pavement? If so you are just binding the front axle, which is a big NO NO
  8. It's very possible the truck was running crappy fuel for the majority of its life. It was a coworkers truck in rural Georgia since new. I have no idea what kind of gas he was using. For the last 20k miles I have been sticking to top tier stations (Shell, Exxon, BP, etc.). The one thing this truck does when it gets warm and been running for a while, it idles extremely rough, and the whole truck vibrates erratically. I wonder if that was a symptom of clogged cats....who knows. I should get the truck back tomorrow sometime. I'll report back.
  9. I had a shop do a diagnostic. They did some tests with intake and exhaust pressure and also temps before and after cats. Came back saying cats are very clogged. So I am having new cats and new sensors installed. Should have the truck back today. Cost is going to be around 2200 out the door. Luckily, I will get reimbursed 100% from my company for this.
  10. Eh. It's a company truck. For all intents and purposes its "my" truck, but the company pays the bills. I am just trying to do some diligence to figure out the best course of action. Because I will likely need to drive this truck to 200,000. The vehicle is registered in Ohio, and I think it will require emissions tests after 4 years. So that puts me into next year sometime. Yea, being that the truck is registered in Ohio, I think I need to keep the cats on it. It's also a company vehicle. My company bought the truck with 36k miles on it in Ohio, then it spent most of it's life in the southeast. now sure what condition the exhaust will be in under there, I haven't gotten under to look at it. As far as I can tell, it doesn't use any oil. I had the plugs changed at 122k, when the vehicle was given to me. It idled rough before the new plugs. Virtually no change after the new plugs, still rough idle. I can feel the whole truck vibrate when in gear, goes away a little bit when in Park and Neutral. If I elevate the RPM's to 700, it smooths right out. I think the rough idle feeling is more like the engine mount TSB that was common on the 2014+ trucks. But I don't know if this truck ever had that TSB taken care of, and it's well out of warranty now, so I never bothered. I've given it regular oil changes since then about every 6500 miles. I check it a few times between oil changes and never seen the oil level drop.
  11. Hey all, my work truck is approaching 140,000 miles. Over the past few weeks I've had an engine light popping up for a few days at a time, then going away for a few days. I had the code checked and it was a P0420 - Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 1. Now this truck has 140,000 miles. I think that's fair to say the cats are in need of replacement? Or Should I try replacing O2 sensors first and see if that corrects the problem. I've spoken to a few local shops and I get varying opinions and thoughts on how to proceed. Some say just replace the sensor. Others say replace just the cats. Another says just cut the old cats out and weld in universal ones. I am not sure what to think. The truck does run "OK" it gets about 18-19 mpg on average, I do mostly highway driving in this vehicle. It does idle incredibly rough, but I know that is no uncommon for 2014+ trucks. Though, now looking back, that could be a symptom of a clogged cat... Thoughts? I had a couple shops quote me cat replacement and here are the prices they gave me. Shop #1: ~ $900 - cut out old cats, weld in replacement universal cats, new sensors Shop #2: ~1,400 - replace cats only with OEM parts, no replacement of sensors Shop # 3: ~$2,100 - replace cats and sensors, with OEM parts Dealership: $2,775 - replace cats and sensors, with OEM parts
