  1. Official 2019 5.3L & 6.2L V8 Engine Specs Are Here

    Well I better say WOW when I see the fuel millage.
  2. I flip vehicles back all f the time. In Canada there is a big Tax savings as you can push the Tax on the trade back to the tax on the new truck and only pay the difference in tax. So here that works out in favor for both the dealer and seller. I put so much millage on Financing is cheaper the leasing with the extra millage added plus no worry of overage charges. So I can make it work. I just avoid negative financing if they can't do the deal straight up for what I owe then no deal. They always work it out though.. I will at some point buy a truck then get a junker car and keep the millage off that truck and pay it out then retire lol.. It is possible but make sure they have no negative financing in it. It comes down to your needs. I have along daily commute so I like a reliable vehicle or at least know I have access to one..
  3. They have lots of tweak updates. Mine is going in Next Friday to get the radio to stop going back to the home screen randomly.
  4. The security modules like to fail in them.. My Father's 05 Base Colorado had that issues. If the fuel pump checks out you may want to check that next.
  5. Drying Towel

    I'll let you know if it ever stops raining lol I just use big drying towel to mostly push off the heavy stuff then new unused yellow soft tack cloth to get the tiny spots. But make sure you have it waxed good.
  6. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    I will accept these power ratings if they made a big jump in fuel millage
  7. The creaking noise mine developed was the upper control arm on the passengers side. I thought it was a ball joint but the truck was under warranty and they put the level on it so I had them fix it. The determined it was the control arm no issues since. I had popping fro it as well.
  8. So is this why they are saying nothing about the horsepower ratings... Since nothing really changed!!!!!!!! The wait is over, and we now know exactly the power and torque ratings of the 2019 Silverado engines, thanks to order guides (linked below) first discovered by GM Authority. Engine / Metric Power (hp / kW) @ RPM: Torque (lb-ft / Nm) @ RPM Transmission 5.3L V8 L84 (new) 355 / 265 @ 5600 383 / 518 @ 4100 8-speed automatic MQE 5.3L V8 L83 (old) 355 / 265 @ 5600 383 / 518 @ 4100 6-speed automatic MYC 6.2L V8 L87 (new) 425 / 317 @ 5600 450 / 610 @ 4100 10-speed automatic MQB 6.2L V8 L86 (old) 420 / 313 @ 5600 460 / 624 @ 4100 8-speed automatic M5U Read more: http://gmauthority.com/blog/2018/04/2019-silverado-engines-power-and-torque-ratings-revealed/#ixzz5EvFC1Tw0
  9. I was going to post a picture of the chunks missing from my 22 inch rims but it will not work. I think with the AT4 package they want it to be a full off-road package now.
  10. They just want you to go buy the competitors trucks after 5 years that's all..
  11. Reduced power after new intake

    Is the MAF connected? Make sure it wasn't damaged when you moved it to the new intake pipe.
  12. They are just big Boy/Girl toys. A friend just had to have a Raptor and failed to estimate it's appetite for FUEL!!!!! Took a loss getting rid of it. Ff you have money to blow go for it I say though. For difference in price for them you could buy a nice truck and then build an off road rig.
  13. Same as always though, you have to want the motor and pay for it because when I do the math you will save virtually nothing in the end if not pay more. At least in Canada the markup puts the trucks in the mid to high 60K range if I want the same options I have in my Sierra.
  14. My 2016 is on it's third one. However, I removed the bottom seal I put on the tailgate and this one has lasted so far.
