  1. I have a grille guard with mesh on my truck, and it is somewhat of a pain to clean the front of the truck. You have to reach behind the grille guard to do it, which obviously is more difficult, and slower than if there wasn't one installed. But I can get the front of my truck just as clean and bug free as if the guard wasn't there, with a little effort. And you also have to clean the grille guard which is usually covered in bugs. That being said, I live in an area where the local chamber of commerce advertises us as the "Deer Capital of Texas", so it's not a matter of if I'll hit a deer, but when.
  2. My truck came with the dealer installed GM storage bin. Removing it was the first mod I did to my truck.....I need the floor space when the seat is folded up, so it's been installed in the attic ever since.
  3. Jesse, now I'm depending on that rain this weekend. Problem for me is, you probably have a better chance for rain in the Houston area, as I'm west of Austin in the hill country. But the weather man is forecasting a "chance" of rain for my area. The town I live in gets it's water supply from the river that runs through it, and in 2011 the flow of the river almost stopped because there was no rain for close to four months. So I'm thinking about washing my truck this afternoon....
  4. If you washing your truck causes it to rain here in Texas (hopefully where I live), you will have my sincere gratitude!
  5. Jason, who did the installation?
  6. Oil Change Question

    Same here....only way I can get consistent results.
  7. Wix 57045 vs 10255

    I just installed a Napa Gold 100255 on my 2015 Sierra 5.3, which is the same filter as the Wix 10255. It took some time to convince the guy at my local Napa that the 10255 had replaced the 57045 for applications that called for a 22 psi bypass valve setting. I've read that Fram is planning on updating the Ultra 10575 to a 22 psi bypass valve to satisfy the GM specification.
  8. The Napa Gold part number for this filter is FIL 100255...I installed one on my 2015 Sierra 5.3L yesterday. The local Napa store got the area manager to pick one up at another store and drop it off at the warehouse. The warehouse shipped it to my local store, but they're supposed to get their own stock in a week or two. I've heard that Fram is going to be changing the XG 10575 bypass valve to 22 psi, and if/when that happens I'll go back to the Ultra.
  9. Need some help everyone

    My 2015 Sierra had slightly over 100 miles on it when I bought it, which concerned me. Turns out it was a dealer trade, and the other dealership was almost 100 miles away....not out of the ordinary in Texas.
  10. If you had said someone parked inches from your truck in a parking lot, I probably wouldn't have believed you without that photo. I'm just speechless......
  11. A/C Condenser

    A friend with a 2016 Tahoe just received notice from GM that they are extending the warranty on his Tahoe's condenser to five years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first. He said the notice included the 2016 Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Yukon XL, and Escalade. (Escalade warranty was extended to six years or 72,000 miles) It did not mention 2016 trucks. Anyone with a truck receive a warranty extension like this from GM?
  12. I'm glad it was an easy fix! Thanks for the update.
  13. There is a notch under the left side of the intake that slides onto, and sits on a bracket that keeps it in position. It looks like from your photo that maybe the intake has come off of the bracket so is now sitting crooked. Maybe the critter crawling around your engine compartment pushed the intake off the bracket?
  14. I traded in my 2011 Toyota 4Runner that was under a safety recall for the passenger side airbag exploding. There was no fix at the time, so the Toyota dealer suggested that if I was driving, my wife sit in the back seat. Traded it in for a 2016 Tahoe, but I guess the dealer couldn't sell it until the recall fix was done.
  15. Steve, mine didn't come in a carton....both times shipped in a sealed plastic bag with AC Delco part stickers on them.
