    2014 Silverado RCSB LT
  1. Plasti dip or wheel skins?

    They do fit very well! And they're dirty in the picture. When the truck is all cleaned up they really look good.
  2. Plasti dip or wheel skins?

    I went with the wheelskins as I too wasn't sure I wanted black rims, but as it turns out I like they way look. And its easy to go back to stock if I later decide to do so.
  3. Safest Highway Tires?

    Replaced the stock 18" Goodyear SRAs with General Grabber HTs. So far have put 5000 miles on them. I can't describe how much better they are: wet traction, comfort, quiet, price. I have used Cooper HT's in the past, but I am really impressed with these Generals.
  4. I noticed under the "RECALL STATUS" it says "Remedy not yet available". I wonder how they will implement the "fix" with no remedy available?? BTW, I searched the GM Recall website with my 2014 Silverado's VIN and learned it is subject to the same recall.
  5. AC Condenser replacement

    Please keep us updated how this condenser is working, any noticeable difference from the original, etc. Thanks!
  6. AC Condenser replacement

    I can't believe you relayed such details of your experience, but sure am glad it's turned out well for you. Hopefully GM is going to get this condenser issue sorted very soon. Summers in the South without A/C in the car are basically unbearable.
  7. I had this recall item done recently. The new panel looks good to me; in fact, I don't even notice it. Seatbelts save lives. My old 97 C1500 was totaled when an errant driver turned into my path while traveling down a major boulevard. My wife and I were wearing our seatbelts and thankfully were not seriously injured.
  8. Personally I love the combination of the blue color and black rims.
  9. I finally relented and had the seatbelt recall performed. A new factory trim piece was installed. IMO it doesn't look bad at all, like quise2014 said it's not dealer cut.
  10. My 2014 5.3L with 3.42 gears (bought new) has always exhibited a similar trait. On acceleration, at certain speeds it's as if the engine sounds like it's trying to figure out whether to increase or decrease rpm's. I thought maybe it was the variable valve timing, but maybe it is the torque management. In any event it's a bit weird, very unlike my old '97 Vortec 5.7L.
  11. Beautiful car. In a way it makes me miss my Pontiac G8 GT. Bought new, never had a problem with it. Good luck with the SS.
  12. $31K, at a $10K discount from MSRP for a loaded 2016 RCSB sounds like a pretty good deal. When I bought my 2014 Chevy LT RCSB my dealer had to go out of state to find one equipped like I wanted. There just don't seem to be that many RCSBs sitting on dealer lots, and I don't see many RCSB's (other than work trucks) around town.
  13. Yeah, I do a lot of driving to & from work in the dark and brighter lights would be a huge plus. I haven't yet made the commitment to do an aftermarket HID conversion.
