  2. I've used SearchTempest to find several sets. Most of them on Craigslist. Picked up a set of mirror caps and door handles (4) off Craigslist for $50 shipped from SD to IA. Link below. Change the zip to your own. https://beta.searchtempest.com/search?search_string=(sierra%7Csilverado)%20handles%20(14%7C15%7C16%7C17%7C18%7C2014%7C2015%7C2016%7C2017%7C2018)%20-chrome&category=8&subcat=pta&hasPic=&srchType=&minAsk=&maxAsk=&minYear=&maxYear=&cityselect=zip&location=52726&maxDist=50000&region_us=1&region_can=1&region_mex=1&Region=combined&addCities=&subCities=&q=%28sierra%7Csilverado%29+handles+%2814%7C15%7C16%7C17%7C18%7C2014%7C2015%7C2016%7C2017%7C2018%29+-chrome++inurl%3A%28pta%7Cptd%7Cpts%29
  3. Same thing was happening on my 16. Dealer found a TSB and reprogrammed. It stopped the issue, but I noticed that it no longer beeps with every increase of the "sonar" waves on the DIC. It only beeps when I'm in the final/"red" zone. Don't really like how it operates now.
  4. 2017 HD Hood Conversion

    Hood is not a direct swap from a 2500 to 1500 Silverado. See post 38 for an idea of what you would need. Basically a front end swap.

  7. Any idea how old the flooring is? Question is whether it's of the age to potentially contain asbestos. If so, you'll need to bring in a profe$$ional to remove, and it's definitely hazardous to your health.
  8. Which cover are you entering to win? 14+ full size 5'8" Tell us why the LOMAX cover is perfect for your truck? Ease of installation and weather tight without drains What features are most important to you when buying a tonneau cover, why? Quality, ease of installation, level of protection Do you have a tonneau cover on your truck? If so, which cover is it? Why are you looking for a change? Yes. Undercover Ultra Flex. Like the lower profile of the Lomax, and drainless weatherproof feature. Ultra Flex is a bit tight at tailgate which requires raising that end so the tailgate can close. What do you use your truck for? Primarily commuting. Also hauling home improvement materials, camping, hunting, and fishing gear.
  9. If you're not set on color, here's one in Lexington with leather for $35K. My point is, if you look around you may get close to the price you're at for the used one. If you're open to a Sierra and a drive, look at Laura GMC in St Louis. http://www.rodhatfieldchevy.com/VehicleDetails/new-2018-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_LT_Z71-Lexington-KY/3063070803
  10. OP, how much more would it be worth to you to get a new one? A nationwide search on Cars.com yielded several similar optioned higher MSRP trucks at list prices under $40K. Leather in an LT does limit those available but I did see a blue one with leather under $40K. You could get one with cloth and have leather installed. Interest rates are often lower on new, so you could have leather put in with the savings difference over the term of a loan, assuming you are borrowing. Looking at the front plate, is this a small independent dealer? If so, what's the back story on how they got it? A vibrator from auction? You would have a bit of 3/36 warranty left but not much. At that price and if not buying new I'd rather buy a CPO and have extended warranty. Just my $.02
  11. Chevy equivalent to Laura GMC?

    I've seen this dealership referenced in other threads as a low price dealer. https://www.autonationchevroletarrowhead.com/
  12. Mobil-1 rebate

    Get an additional $5 back on Mobil 1 original, high mileage, and extended performance at Wal-Mart via the ibotta app. 5qt jug only.
  13. I am ok with people modding their trucks however they see fit. I have a Crew LTZ Z71. I dislike chrome, so I replaced the mirror caps and door handles with color matched. I feel that Chevy should have done the LTZ the same as the LT, with color matched trim and alow the purchaser to "upgrade" with the chrome trim option/accessories. Anyone that knows what they are looking for can look at mine, yours, or the guy wanting to put Z71 swag on, and tell if it's as Chevy built or not. As long as someone isn't doing mods with an intent to swindle someone, it shouldnt matter. I am also fine with Chevy limiting sale of these badges to certain VINs as that is their business decision. Harley did the same with ther 100th anniversary commemorative models. The point I was trying to make was that people are changing vehicle appearance in this thread with emblems specific to a trim/package and getting support. The guy was getting bashed in the other thread. Back to my earlier statement, if he's not doing it maliciously, it shouldn't matter. I don't personally agree with what he's doing, but assume he's not doing it maliciously.
  14. Totally agree. A guy asked about putting Z71 emblems/stickers on his truck and gets railed. But putting these emblems on when a truck is not a centennial is ok? http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/209855-z71-grill-emblem/
