  1. I just cleaned mine yesterday. They really weren't difficult at all to get out, or to get back together. One thing I did notice is when you push them back together at the locking points, they go back together a little easier if you put outward pressure on both mats. Hard to describe, but basically push outward on both mats away from where they meet. I've found that helps them slip together better. Also, for the cleaning itself, a little carwash soap and a soft bristle brush attached to a cordless drill makes it real easy.
  2. I would suggest trying a different set of tires, if your dealer is willing. I had a set of brand new Cooper tires cause a vibration above 60, even though they balanced out within spec. The replacement set does not vibrate.
  3. My 19 with the 5.3l and 8 speed does this occasionally. 2 different dealers said GM is aware and it's "expected behavior" of the transmission when operating cold. As stated above, it's less likely to happen if I let the truck run for a few minutes before pulling out and putting it in drive. I read at some point in another thread here that it has to do with the clutch packs or valves needing time to fill with fluid, or something along those lines.
  4. Got a deal on these locally. Figured they're worth a try for half price. They feel pretty decent so far. Much better than the stock ones that had 46k on them anyway.
  5. Looking to sell the original wheels that were on my 16 Silverado Z71. They're in near perfect condition, just a couple light scratches here and there that you have to be right up on to see. They have a set of Dueler A/T tires on them right now that are just about dead. Maybe a little life left to them. I don't have the 16 anymore, and these won't fit my 19, so I have no use for them. If anyone is interested in them, I'll sell them locally for $600 for all 4. I think I also have the factory nuts somewhere for them. I'm located in northeast Ohio, but I do pretty frequently travel to Northwest PA and the Ft. Wayne IN area. I'd be happy to meet up with anyone that is interested.
  6. I've never gotten stuck anywhere, in either my 2019 or my 2016 in 4 hi with the G80. You do have to be willing to live with the wheel spin required to lock up the G80. Which I think is something like a 500rpm difference between the rear wheels. EDIT: apparently it's 120rpm. Google is cool.
  7. I have a 2019 Silverado LT 5.3. Different engine choice than what you're asking, but it does have the single speed transfer case and it does fine for me off road. The areas I frequent are not very intense, but like you, I am there for camping/hunting. I've been on rough dirt "roads", that are more just tracks through the woods, in wet summer weather and also snowy winter weather and haven't run into a situation where I thought I was in trouble. If you frequent areas with some very deep mud, or heavily rocky areas, I could see the need for a low range there, but I haven't felt like I miss having it in my case. I came from a 2016 K2 truck with z71 and the low range, and I can count on one hand the number of times I used that low range. I'll attach some photos I have of the new truck in off road settings. This is just my personal opinion on the single speed vs 2 speed t-case. Not saying that no one needs low range.
  8. @saberIf you still have the files, I'd suggest uploading to Thingyverse.com so people don't have to keep asking here. If it's uploaded there, a link can just be shared.
  9. Just did this today on my LT with the single exhaust. Valve clamped open and resonator screens covered. Just enough sound increase. These videos are remote starts at near operating temp, so a cold start should be a bit louder.
  10. Sure is. It was actually replaced last winter after a deer impact. I'd be down for a straight trade if yours is in good shape too.
  11. What color is the grill you have now? I have a black LT, and I'm just over in Akron.
  12. I installed this under the passenger seat. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019Z3RFGY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Tapped into the wires coming down the channel under the door sill. I replaced the door speakers with a set of rockford fosgate's and the overall improvement is pretty good. The sub I linked fits nicely under the front seat, but does interfere with moving the seat all the way back. One of the steel bars under the seat catches on it just a bit. If I tried, I could probably find a way to mount it where it doesn't interfere, but I just haven't had a need to yet.
  13. Update: After a lengthy discussion with the store manager, and a call with the district manager, the store will be paying for all 3 wheels to be refinished. I will have to be without the truck for a few days, since I don't have any other wheels to put on there, but I'm satisfied for now that they are making things right. As long as the refinisher they contract with does quality work. Still have to research them before scheduling the job.
  14. Ideally, yes, I should have checked and not trusted. But hindsight is always 20/20. You're just stating the obvious here, nothing profound. Half-update: The store manager called today and apologized for not calling me on Saturday morning. Apparently had family issues come up. He'll be meeting me tomorrow morning at 8AM.
