  1. Word is the GM triplets will have Independent Rear Suspension on the new SUVs. Think it will help the ride without hurting hauling and towing characteristics?
  2. Surprise! Chevy drops 2021 Trailblazer Out Of Nowhere

    Young people don't want to drive period. They want Uber and Lyft to come get them so they can keep their faces buried in their smart phones. Gotta get those oh-so-valuable likes on social media!
  3. 01-02 cab swap to an 03’ 2500

    I would think the cab is the same, but I can't verify that off the top of my head. Check with a trusted body shop, and if it's doable, hell yeah for 300 I would
  4. A GM / Ford Merger???

    True, but Ford fanboys can cool their jets about "built without taxpayer dollars". Not necessarily true.
  5. A GM / Ford Merger???

    Ford didn't need a bailout but they were all too happy to take a $5.9 billion gift for fuel efficient technologies.
  6. 2015 Silverado Z71 LTZ, 6.2L V8. 114,991 Miles. Coming up on my next brake fluid flush at 116xxx. Last time I did the ol' pump the brake pedal to cycle new fluid through the lines. That was kind of a PITA, so I'm inquiring about easier/more efficient methods. I know parts stores have the one man bleeder kits, NAPA has a reverse bleeder, and I've even heard about gravity bleed. Would there be any benefit to pumping the brake pedal with the truck idling to let the ABS pump do the work? Open to ideas. Thank you!
  7. 1SLOW1500's Turbo truck build

    How did you cut the skid plate?
  8. Truck Norris 2.0

    Sweet rig! I like how the dealer has hail shields..great idea. I saw that for the first time in Nebraska and was surprised I haven't seen it more often in my neck of the woods.
  9. 2018 Chevrolet 2500 HD rear tire spin

    Could be the type of tires on it, though how much gas you give it is subjective. I can get my 15 Silverado 1500 with the 6.2 to spin the tires but there is significant throttle application involved. Could be the newer trucks have more torque management.
  10. Best way to flush brakes

    Wowza the Gear Wrench tank looks sweet, lotsa coin for that though. The harbor freight system looks good too, but I don't have an air compressor. That Allstar performance bleeder bottle though, that looks like a handy little deal. Glad I asked! Thank you for the answers guys, looks like I have some shopping to do!
  11. Engine misfires

    I don''t think Cylinders 2,4,6,8 are all AFM, that would mean your engine is only firing on one bank when in 4 cylinder mode. You'd have some weird vibrations. 1,3,5 and 7 are all the left side cylinders. 2,4,6 and 8 are all right side. Bearing this in mind, I would bet good money you have a single issue causing this, and cylinder 5 happens to be suffering the worst. I'd start inspecting wiring for the injectors on that side, as well as the common wiring for the ignition coils. You may have a excessive oil weep past the spark plug grommets in the valve cover on the left side, but you'd know you did if the plugs came out oily. Misfire, to me, seems to indicate an issue with air or fuel delivery, or problems with igniting the mixture. Bad lifters seems a stretch, but anything is possible with these newer vehicles. You could also get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Depstech-Endoscope-Inspection-Megapixels-Smartphone/dp/B01MYTHWK4 and have a look in the cylinders yourself. I got one of these, this brand in particular for Christmas, and I used it for a general inspection when I changed my spark plugs about a month ago. They work extremely well and provide some good imagery as well. Case in point, the attached image shows Cylinder 2 on my truck (at the front of the engine on the right side). You can see the crosshatch on the cylinder wall, the top of the piston with a little bit of carbon buildup, as well as the tip of one of the valves and a little bit of carbon build up on it too. Quite easy to use and a good intermediate inspection step between what you've already done and engine disassembly. Good luck, and keep us posted. We like helping and it's nice to see how things turn out so there's future reference.
  12. The L9H option and the trucks it came in.

    It was an option in extended and crew cab Chevies, Not necessarily the LTZ. Case in point, a member has one for sale I think in 09 they were initially an option in crew cab trucks, and as the years went on they broadened the offerings, such as extended cab in 2011. Best bet is to check the Service Parts Identification label (if pictured) on the ads you check.
  13. Wheels for Pac Blue AT4

    Black chrome!
  14. Looking at part numbers, I'd say probably not. Will keep looking, but currently I'd say no
  15. The benefits of a steep driveway

    Mufflers also have a drain hole to prevent them rusting from the inside out.
  16. Your logic seems to be spot on with a bad injector, especially if you've ruled everything else out. Are you getting the P050D code? Many members with injector issues on the K2s have consistently reported that.
  17. 2014-2018 GM/Borla L86 6.2L Exhaust - DC/CC

    Thank you to everyone for the interest. A previously interested party has purchased the system. SOLD!
  18. 2014-2018 K2XX Gm/Borla cat-back system. This is comparable to the Borla Touring system. This has the adaptive exhaust valve (Flapper) that takes care of the V4 helicopter noise. Part number is 19303345. This is the Dual Side Exit system for Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras equipped with the L86 6.2L V8. This system will fit crew cab short bed trucks and double cab standard bed trucks. I bought this to replace a defective system, as I did not expect Borla to do anything. However, Borla replaced the front pipe on my old system free of charge. Since my old muffler was broke in, and as a result, noticeably louder, I kept the old system. This system is in like new condition with no defects. It is ready to go on your truck. Pricing today is $850. Open to reasonable offers. This is a like new system that retails for $1200 without tips, which are an additional $120.

  22. Grumpy Bears 2015 Silverado 2WD

    Good to know. Since changing coolant in my Cadillac in 2012 I've run a 70/30 mix and had no issues, and that's battle tested to -33 F over the winder of 2017 I believe.
  23. Gear you keep in your truck

    Make sure you rinse the bottom of your truck frequently and maybe undercoat Epic, they salt the LIVING CRAP out of the roads up there. Let's see, in my upper glovebox I have 7 mil Hardy nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight. I absolutely LOVE those. Great for all tasks, especially working on vehicles, and they are right there. Plus as relatively inexpensive as they are I have no issue burning through a box of em. Lower glovebox has the owner's manual, my factory headlights, factory valve stem caps, bed hole plugs, Chevy Trucks umbrella from my Dad's old Suburban roadside kit, and a couple microfiber cloths for cleaning screens. Center console has the Chevy organizer, which has a full coin organizer, manual dial tire pressure gauge, small Chevy Trucks flashlight, Chevy knife, and a Chevy multi tool (I love Chevy Mall and Chevy Norscot). I also have the key for my hitch receiver lock. That flashlight gets tons of mileage, great for quick looks and inspection. In the front pocket I have 3 Chevy pens, a little Chevy notepad book, and a factory Microsoft charger for my Lumia 640. On the file folder hooks I have three folders. The front folder has my proof of insurance and current registration. The second folder has my window sticker and the RPO printout detailing installed options on my truck. The rear folder has the current year's paperwork related to service information, such as parts invoices and service receipts. On the bottom I have a roll of heavy duty shop towels, a new Chevy first aid kit, an older Chevy Trucks first aid kit (with newer stuff inside) from the Suburban kit, a reconfigurable Chevy Trucks flashlight/lantern, a Chevy power bank with usb cable, and all the albums of my favorite band. Gotta have tunes. One of my most favorite things I pack along, found in the center console, is Fast Orange wipes. Smooth on one side, scrubbers on the other, these things are GREAT. Amazing way to clean your hands, surfaces, etc etc etc. A fantastic way to clean up on the go. Highly highly highly highly highly recommend. In the lower pocket on the back of the console I have a Chevy Trucks 100 years COB light, that bad boy is BRIGHT and fantastic for detailed inspections. I also have a couple of Chevy ice scrapers. Those work well, and since I have a garage at home and a parking garage at work, so a brush is not necessary in my eyes. In the left seatback pocket I have old service paperwork and my log for even years, and the odd years go in the right seatback pocket. That way I have a hard copy for reference and I know where they're at. Last fall I broke down and snagged a GM underseat storage bin. I was piling up accesories (and then had an excuse to get more ), it fits the best of the options out there, and it works with my floor liners. I cut a section out on the left side to fit my roadside kit, but otherwise it fits well. On the right side I have a Curt 10k lb hitch ball mount with a 10k ball in a Chevy Silverado bag, 4 Curt 733 lb blue ratchet straps in a Chevy Silverado bag, and a Curt 9k LB GVW (18k lb break strength) tow strap in a Chevy Trucks bag. With the bags they provide the opportunity to keep stuff clean, and they are licensed too. I'm a sucker for that. The center section has my trusty Chevy sunshade, the fancy thick one. The left side has a Chevy water bottle, fast funnels (https://fastfunnel.com/index.html), a blue Chevy blanket, and my Chevy roadside kit (the fancy one with the bowtie). The roadside kit has 6 gauge jumper cables, a hand powered flashlight, grippy gloves, silver duct tape, a couple of bungee cords, zip ties, a 4 way screwdriver, and a pair of pliers. I've added leather Chevy Silverado work gloves, a locking Craftsman crescent wrench, a 24 bit Craftsman ratcheting screwdriver, a medium size pair of Craftsman adjustable pliers, and a roll of the narrow Gorilla tape. Sorry to go bonkers, I'm kinda pleased with the lot of stuff I've organized and haven't really shared my full list of stuff.
  24. Chit chat

    I dunno, seems like a lot of uncertainty surrounding it
  25. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/l-Used-2019-GMC-Sierra-1500-Elevation-ev2205#listing=236557677 Isn't this a crew cab?
