    I put bed covers on them. That way suitcases, bags tools and whatever fit in the bed. Not for everyone but works great for me. Ben driving RCSBs for 20+ years. I'm just use to it.
  2. Badges

    The paint has not faded in 2 years. I have done this on 20 yr old cars. Just get out some wax and start polishing.
  3. Roll bar and Bed Cover?

    Only issue is I dont have a tubing bender.... trying to find a shop that will do that part. The rest I can do. I'm more into suspension stuff like 4 link, full air ride rather then accent stuff. I will update with some pictures. My V8 Swapped B2200, GM 10 bolt, 10 shot, Gear Vender Over drive, TH350 full air ride on parallel bars.
  4. Roll bar and Bed Cover?

    I think it will be noticeably cheaper to just make a roll bar then replace the $1200 bed cover. Plus, I really like this roll up hard cover. That roll bar is only 2 tubes with 8 bends. You could remove 2 of the bends and just angle cut the base of the rear bars. The flat plates are very easy. Worse case I would have to notch and gusset the bars to fit around the cover.
  5. you can get them out with vice grips. Most likely you need a set of the proper wrenches. I used a 6 point socket to losen them the first time on new cars.

    I could do the swap myself. I strongly considered it. I am going to super charge the 5.3 instead and not spend the money. if GM built it I could finance it. If I have to built it, it takes cash.

    I will not spend anything on a 4 door. I had no issues dropping $44,000 for my RCSB Sierra with the options I required. I would have dropped $55,000 if they would have made me a RCSB Denali. Heck, I would have spent $70,000 for a 6.2L 4x4 Denail RCSB. I will not buy any new truck that isn't a RCSB the minute they stop making them is the minute I never buy another new truck. Thats just me... I hate 4 door trucks. I dont need and dont want 4 doors. Your search included V6 long beds.... find loaded ones. Typically one in a 500 mile radius.
  8. Reg Cab 2019

    Thats not actually true. I have 3 brand new RCSB trucks loaded as high as I could get them. There are 0 rebates on the regular cabs. Because there are so few of them GM doesn't need to offer rebates to move them and likely makes more profit on the ones they do make. I have paid close to sticker on each of them and had to travel close to a thousand miles to find one. It is possible if dealers stocked more, more might sell. About once a month someone says to me they didn't know GM even made RCSB any more.
  9. I forgot about the headlights. The headlights on my 2010 were better then the ones on my 15
  10. Roll bar and Bed Cover?

    hmm... to bad I already have the hard cover. I have gone with the Truxedo soft on other truck and decided to go for the hard cover. it rolls up into a can type thing and thus sits on the edge of the rails to support the weight. It does not sit inside. Would need to double check but I say its about half an inch onto the rails.
  11. I HATE the 19 and will not spend $1 for one. Thus I traded a 15 and got an 18. I feel the trade was almost worth it for Apple Car play. Im still pissed GM didn't update the 15's. We all got screwed on that. I don't see any difference in the trucks other then the options I made darn sure I had. This time I have an integrated trailer brake controller and got a Sierra not a Silverado this time around. I love the truck very glad I went with it after canceling my order on a 19.
  12. I really want a light bar like the one pictured below. Issue is I have a hard roll up bed cover that sits on the bed rails. Has anyone found a roll bar that will work with a bed cover? Im thinking I will have to have one custom made. Wish I had access to a pipe bender.
  13. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    Added a 3/2 leveling kit, differential drop, bilstiens in the rear. 275/65/r20 BFG's on factory wheels with 2" spacers. The tires do rub. 1.5" spacers should arrive today. I think the 1.5 spacers will remove the rubbing. If not I will trim a little. The tires do not rub with no spacer.
  14. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    I put 40,000 on a 2015 in 2014 before all this complaining about upper control arms. Never had any issues at all.
