thefishhawk replied to Cjc16's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500you might be able to get it on from the top side if you have someone with small hands/arms that can get behind there. Slide it under the metal slider bracket and over the loop and snap it on. but if you have no noise it doesn't matter. I've had one of those pieces in my console for a couple years lol can't remember if you get more clearance behind the seat when it's up or down, i think up. the other way you can't even get a hand back there.
thefishhawk replied to michigan2500hd's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Make sure the latches are lubed as well. A lot of plastic parts in there. I had a squeak coming from the back of the crew cab it took me quite awhile to figure out and that's what it turned out to be. it would only happen if you hit bumps a certain way.
thefishhawk replied to ObscureGlock's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500wonder if he typed that backwards...my 2014 limits at 98.
thefishhawk replied to Mike GMC's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500some older threads on that. I was using a file on the latch too but it kept coming back eventually. finally put some black duct tape on the inside of the lower piece the lid latch goes into and that has lasted the best.
Personally, I'd do Mt Evans instead of Pikes Peak just due to the tourist factor, but of course Pikes is the famous one. They chopped off the top and put a parking lot with gift shop and restaurant on Pikes. Mt Evans is more rustic I guess. Park near the top then take a short hike. Talking May you definitely have to keep an eye on the conditions if you are talking something like the trails down around Lake city like Wager Gulch. We haven't had great snowpack this year but May is pretty early, could easily not be passable all the way to the town.
thefishhawk replied to zeke1883's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500that looks like someone with a buffer got too aggressive. is it on both? or maybe if others have it, it is a manufacturing issue. I'd probably try to get them to replace it, looks scratched.
thefishhawk replied to nluchau's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Definitely, I had a big nest in mine. Dead mouse is a pretty distinctive smell lol
thefishhawk replied to Geoffwhite18's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I wrote that yesterday and wasn't signed in and it got lost LOL......if you like your truck don't worry about it, you aren't missing anything. Not to devalue the feeling of getting mislead about what it was, but as far as the truck you won't miss the HDC. It works totally spotty and I don't trust it, old-school using 4lo is better. I've only used it a handful of times to play with it around Moab, and I offroad quite a bit. It needs to be improved for sure. The other poster was talking about grade braking, which is often confused with hill descent control. HDC is low speed off road or short icy stretch down a bad driveway or something, grade braking you'll still have and is used when going down a long highway descent type stretch, so that's why it helps when towing. Uses the engine and lower gears to maintain speed instead of frying the brakes.
thefishhawk replied to joshc64311's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I'd get an odd smell occasionally when I first turn it on, took it in for scheduled maintenance/recalls a couple days ago, had a nice mouse nest buried back inside the vents/cabin filter. Maybe something crawled in there while you were parked.
thefishhawk replied to royalkangaroo's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500center console here, consistent problem, it's in the latch. at first I took a file and took a bit off the latch and that would work for awhile, but then I ended up lining the receiver part with black duct tape and that's done the trick. It kept making me think it was on the edges or somewhere else but it always came back to the latch. Pretty much anywhere plastic hits plastic on this truck will creak at some point.
thefishhawk replied to 15 Z71's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Try it out and see what you think but I'm with SSG85...the thing is a clicking, ticking, jerking mess. And I've had it turn itself off in the middle of a hill more than once. Went back to just old school using 4 low if I need that kind of control on a descent. Idea is good, but it needs some work. it would be interesting to find out how it compares to Toyota's.

thefishhawk replied to 14tungstenLT's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modificationsno idea....the sides are a bit slanted and then you have the curve of the sides to the bed. I rough cut mine then hit the ends with a sander to get it just right. Cut the bottom corners at a 45 so I didn't have to mess with the curve. Then I painted it with some house paint I had around. It will definitely stay in there nice and tight and snug without any help with the slant of the bed sides providing compression if you cut/sand/trial and error it down to fit your truck.

I normally get the light with 4 gallons left, that's 15% of tank, at least 50-60 miles left. May not be ideal, but sometimes things happen and you need to know when worried to be about it.
