  1. Ceramic Coating

    Has anyone had any experiences with using Ceramic Pro? I'm thinking about opting for their gold package. I've seen others have had luck with Cquartz Pro but I have no installers in my area. Thanks.
  2. Thanks everybody for the help and feedback. I approached Chevy and the dealership to see if they were willing to replace the two doors. After a couple weeks they finally got back with me to tell me they wouldn’t be replacing the doors. They’re reason was what I originally thought was warping is actually “ stress marks “ from my the stamping process and they consider this normal. The regional manager from Chevy said majority of the trucks have some type of stress marks on them. The service manager at the dealership told me he has seen 3-4 19’s on their lot that have the stress marks on the door panels. I'm disappointed they weren’t willing to make it right with me. The stress mark on the rear passenger door looks like a dent and you can see it from any angle especially since my truck is black. At least the Chevys don’t have the ripple effect like the Fords. A couple stress marks looks much better in my opinion. I think I can live with it. After all it’s a great truck!!! 😀
  3. Everything on the truck is factory. The black line is still present when I have the low beams on with the fog lights off. The black line remains there when I turn the fog and high beams on. Which makes me think that an adjustment for the low beam lights may correct the black line. I have attached a picture with a circle around what appears to be the headlamp adjustment screw. Can anyone clarify if this is the correct adjustment screw? Also does adjusting this screw only adjust the low beam headlamps? Thanks, Dan
  4. I’ve got a 19 LTZ and have noticed a few people have flashed their lights at me while driving at night while I have the normal beams on. Overall the lights are very bright. I’m wondering if the normal beam leds may be adjusted to high from the factory. I have attached a picture of the led headlights at night. I have an arrow pointing to what appears to be a dark line in the light output. Is this normal? My thoughts were if the lights were adjusted down a bit the dark line may go away. Thoughts? Thanks, Dan
  5. New 10 Speed and 8 Speed

    My last truck was a 6 speed and the 10 speed is night and day different. So much smoother. I really started to hate my 6 speed on how jerky it was in between gears. I like a nice smooth ride. I think I can live with a few clunky downshifts here and there. I think this is going to be a great truck overall. Not being biased but I think the new Silverado is one of the smoothest riding vehicles out there for the $$$ . It drives just as smooth as our Volvo XC90. My buddy just bought a new Escalade and he thought my truck drove better. He was envious of the smooth ride and the power of the 6.2. haha
  6. I took your advice and loosened the clamps on both sides, and it did seem to help it. Only 1 slam latch kept coming unlatched. More than likely it was probably just defective from the get go. I've had 3 tonneau covers in my day and have never had any come unlatched while driving. I had the slam latches adjusted as far as they could go, and it almost appeared to me the cables between the slam latches were not long enough because there was still about 1/8 gap between the driver, and passenger rail to the edge of the slam latch. The biggest problem I had was loosening the hold down latches to the recommended torque rating. In my opinion they should be designed to be torqued down more because they're the two main clamps that secure the tonneau cover to the bed. I would be concerned of them loosening up overtime due to vibration. If that would happen your then relying on 4 slam latches to secure the tonneau cover to the bed. Maybe I'm just being over cautious and paranoid but I looked at this tonneau cover as a liability that could give me problems overtime. I really liked the look of this cover and really wish I could have made it work. Wish you all the best with it and your new truck Thanks for your help. Dan
  7. Here’s an update. I continued to have issues with the driver side / cab end slam latch coming unlatched while driving so I returned it to the dealer with no problem. My dealer said that Chevy is aware of the issue.
  8. Tilt steering

    In the years past I have always had tilt wheels without the telescoping feature. My 19 is the first to have the telescoping and I love it. You release the lever in the column move up and down on the steering wheel to tilt it and pull out to telescope it. At first I was disappointed about not having the power adjustable pedals too. In my opinion the power pedals are really not needed once you get your steering wheel, and seat adjusted to your liking. Overall I’ve noticed a big change in how everything is layed out. It’s much easier to navigate all the features of the truck going down the road. I would recommend taking some time to get everything adjusted the way you like it and take that puppy on a test drive. I don’t think you will be disappointed. 😀
  9. High Country LED Cluster Goes Blank

    Hopefully it’s an easy fix. It’s always frustrating when your going down the road and your instrument cluster goes blank. I would recommend calling Chevy customer care to report the issues and also work with your dealer. I’ve just discovered you get more accomplished when you talk with both. Good luck.
  10. No vibration at all. No vibration is present. It’s only noticeable when cruising with no radio or when the windows are down. It’s very minimal and I can live with it. 90% of the time I drive with the radio on and would not notice it. I did reach out to Chevy. They are going to get back with me next week with a resolution. I’m assuming they are going to say it’s normal. Overall the truck is a beast. 😀
  11. Anybody else notice a faint chattering noise from the engine while driving? I have a 6.2 10 speed and just noticed it while I was driving without the radio. Any idea what the sound may be coming from? Maybe the dynamic fuel management. I’m sure it’s normal but just thought I would ask. Thanks, Dan
  12. New 10 Speed and 8 Speed

    I have the 6.2 10 speed. Overall really satisfied with it. Most of the time you can barely notice when it’s shifting. Very smooth overall. I’ve only noticed it downshift kinda loud a couple of times and I’ve got close to 900 miles.
  13. Looks awesome. Thanks for sharing. Glad it’s working well for you. 😀
