  1. https://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=10383 ECM Software Updates for New V8 Engines Posted on October 31, 2018 by blogadmin Some 2019 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 trucks may have an Engine Control Module (ECM) condition that requires reprogramming with the latest software calibrations now available. These conditions are covered in Bulletins #18-NA-289 and #18-NA-292. Read the entire article at the above URL
  2. Trying to use e85

    As most know (I hope) , ethanol absorbs water and thus you should use your truck often so that you always have fresh e85 in the tank. A truck used only occasionally can result in stale e85 with water issues if fresh e85 is not used regularly. So e85 has benefits - as long as it is fresh e85. http://www.fuel-testers.com/expiration_of_ethanol_gas.html
  3. Just saw the Chinese made tires on a truck - very good ratings for off-road and snow (maybe because of the 'side tread')? Not a bad price - as low as $100 each. Read the reviews on the below URL. https://simpletire.com/kenda-30-9.50r16.5lt-290017-tires?stmodel=kr-29-mt&stcategory=mud-terrain&sttype=light-truck&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh9Pt9Lmf3gIVxYSzCh1OgwpJEAQYAyABEgLiY_D_BwE Posted FYI only - I don't own any.
  4. The first thing I would do is to go talk to YOUR insurance agent and ask as for information/advice/recommendations. The more info you have, the better to make a decision.
  5. http://www.thedrive.com/news/24307/it-looks-like-the-2020-chevy-silverado-hd-will-have-flow-through-lettering-on-the-grille "The next-generation Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks due out for the 2020 model year will have a grille that’s both functional and a little different-looking. In lieu of a bowtie emblem, the word “Chevrolet” will be stamped across the front of the grille—and according to the snoops at GM Authority, the lettering will be cut out to increase airflow, just like the hollow "Flow-tie" that that first appeared on the fifth-gen Z/28 Camaro. "
  6. Before having the truck hauled to the dealer, it might be a good idea to use another vehicle and go to the dealer (or call them) and ask them about the possible fix. They might say 'oh, that is an easy fix' and tell you what to do.
  7. New tailgate

    Trucks Equipped with a Hitch Ball Do not lower the inner gate with the primary gate open (easy access or step positions) if a hitch ball or trailer is attached. This may damage the tailgate due to the amount of clearance between the hitch receiver and the lowered inner gate. (Fig. 26)

  10. Stuck Brake Calipher ?

    While it's acting up ( feels like the brake is dragging), pull over and touch the brake rotor - did it burn your hand = stuck caliper. Drive it a little more - is white smoke coming up from the brake = stuck caliper. The smell of burnt rubber could be from the brake lines and the high heat from the hot rotor.
