  1. GHR is now called Greenstone Metallic. This is likely the official name of the color for Silverado HD. Still not sure if this color will make it's way to Light Duty.
  2. One new regular production color for 2022 Chevrolet 2500/3500. Code GHR-Cannon Metallic. I don't know what it looks like yet but I'm guessing it will be gray. Fun fact, GHR was also the paint code for the yellow on Hummer back in 2010.
  3. This is not true at all. I have a Trail Boss sitting in Mexico with missing parts right now due to the chip shortage. There are pics on this forum showing trucks sitting at an overflow lot at Ft. Wayne assembly waiting on parts. Your sales guy is somewhat misinformed as well. Dealer do not have to order a pattern order truck. I ALWAYS build out my trucks how I want and not necessarily how the pattern orders are. GM has what's called "FOCUSED ORDERING CONFIGURATION" when ordering. That's an RPO code selected when you select everything GM wants you to. There is also RPO R6Y "O
  4. Now I wish I had gone with my gut and ordered Arrival Blue. I was really, really close to ordering it but my wife wasn't sold on the color. If I had seen these pictures, I would have done it anyway. Great looking truck!
  5. Yeah, I don't believe the rail car shortage at all. That has been an excuse for going on 7 years with GM. Production isn't even close to what it has been in the past yet there's still a rail car shortage? Not buying it.
  6. I'm not a fan of the e-core AC Delco filters. It it has an E at the end of the filter#, I'm not using it. I'll buy a WIX or Mobil 1 Filter.
  7. Slim to none are the chances you will see it by mid-May. I might be wrong but there are literally thousands of these things sitting waiting on parts. I have no idea why either because some of them are shipping out with no delay. There seems to be no rhyme or reason why some are hold and some aren't. I'd ask your dealer if they have any that aren't currently at 4D00.
  8. Mine has this issue as well. It's annoying as hell. I always know when it has reset because the radio will be turned off when I get in the truck. I thought it might be something related to Android Auto but I've eliminated that as it will do it even if I never have my phone connected. I checked and there is an infotainment update from GM that was released on 3/30/21. It covers IOS and IOT radios, not the IOR for the Customs though. I'm wondering if it might actually work though. Anyway, bulletin # is 21-NA-053: Radio Software Version V155 Update. Only for 2021 mo
  9. You're only talking about 50-70 pounds difference max between the 5.3 and 6.2 in identical trucks.
  10. That looks great as is. I wouldn't touch the rear. Nicely done.
  11. I added a Smartliner bed mat. I didn't order my truck with a spray in as I don't really need it. I do like a mat to keep things from sliding around though. This thing is nice and it's very rubbery so I don't see stuff sliding much at all. However, it might be too sticky. It seems like it will definitely make sliding things into the bed a pain so I'll see how that works out. Fit and finish is excellent. I do need to poke a couple of drain holes in it toward the cab.
  12. I was expecting 8-12 weeks. I've been ordering for a long time and I've never seen a 1500 arrive this quickly. I've seen 6 weeks before but that was when production was "normal". With supplier issues and shortages, I was fully prepared to wait 12 weeks for my truck to arrive. Less than 4 weeks is just insane right now. It's right up there with the fastest we've ever gotten a vehicle. It's not uncommon for us to receive Tahoes/Escalades in 2-3 weeks since we're so close to the Arlington plant. I've also had Corvettes show up in 3 weeks but that was during the C7 days.
  13. Here's my new 21 Custom Trail Boss. Options I ordered: 6.2L, Safety Confidence Package, Rear Seat with Storage Package and Multiflex Tailgate.
