  1. I just bought an all original-equipment 1931 Chevy 1.5-ton. I want to convert it to a modern starting system. I know that I need to covert it to 12-volt first. What is next?
  2. Yesterday on GM Authority (they had a story about vehicle-mounted keyless entry key pads (not fobs) http://gmauthority.com/blog/2019/10/keyless-entry-keypad-offered-as-gm-accessory-for-buick-chevy-and-gmc/. After a little more research and reading I have found that you can buy it as a kit and have the dealer or someone else install it. So I have a couple of questions. 1. Can I get it for my 2014 Silverado LT? 2. Does the installer need to be a dealership technician? 3. What is the general quality review of the new system? Thanks!

  3. Is it just me or does anyone else see some pretty big design queues from the major brands on the 2016 Toyota Tundras? For example, the next time you get behind a Tundra, ask yourself if the tail lights of it resemble closely those of the 2014 Silverado. Also, ask yourself if the upper lip on the tailgate is not a dead ringer to the 2014 Silverado/Sierra. While we are talking about tailgates, ask yourself if the notch on the lower half of the Tundra's is not very similar to the one on the F-150. Finally, as you sit next to a Tundra at an intersection, look at the fenders. Does that flare not look just a bit too similar to the Silverado's/Sierra's? Even the wheel openings seem only slightly less rounded than the Silverado's. The only conclusion I can draw is that Toyota, seeing they cannot beat them in sales, have aped the design of the real trucks in hopes buyers will get confused and buy their trucks instead of GM and Ford trucks.
  4. 2014/2015 TE are not chrome. They're polished aluminum. I'd be willing to make a straight trade if you're still interested. I bought my truck in November 2014.
  5. I wouldn't do it, dude. Heartache and misery is all you're in for. They'll look great, until you get them on and definitely with a few weeks use. Go to the wrecker if you need to; even that will be a better solution than what you'll get with peel and stick.
  6. You have a truck made of Reynolds Wrap (okay, that might be a tad harsh), and the oil pan is what is getting you. What about the fact that the insurance companies have no idea how much it'll cost when one gets to the body shop? We still don't know what kind of premiums we're in for, but the whole thing sounds a bit scary for any of the lab rats who adopt it first.
  7. Y'all, I'm the proud and recent owner of a 2014 LT extended cab. Yup, sure am. Love it to bits. I understand that some folks are not thrilled about chrome. I don't understand that, but I grew up when chrome was the rage. Personally, and as long as it is in good taste (i.e. it would've come from the factory that way), the more the merrier. Annoyingly, my truck does not have the chrome window sill trim. I hear that there is something of a swap market out there. If you're looking to swap out your chrome for black, I am available to swap out my black for chrome. I'd prefer someone in Texas (specifically, the Houston area), but I have been known to travel for crazier reasons. Cheers! Tim
