  1. Z71 vinyl inlay

    i used plastidip on the one on my grill. turned out great... why not just use plastidip on the door ones?
  2. i bought my first truck (an 89 chev) in 1997 and immediately put a soft cover on it. it was the only vehicle i drove for 19 years. not once was the cover ever damaged or anything ever taken from the back of my truck. in 2016 i bought my second truck (a 14 silverado) and like my '89 i immediately put a soft cover on it too (truxedo truxport toneau cover). like my other truck - so far absolutely no issues with damage to the cover or stuff getting stolen out of the box.
  3. Auxiliary Switch Panel Idea

    ebay! i think it was this stuff... glow strip colour would have been blue
  4. Auxiliary Switch Panel Idea

    there is lots of room to run wires under the center console. pop the trim pieces off and there is lots of access i added glow tubing inside my cup holder for kicks!
  5. had to buy a new battery today for my '14. not exactly what i was planning my next post in the thread to be - ha! **oh... and what a pain to get the battery out - man oh man. i guess i'm just used to my old '89... disconnect the positive and negative wires from the battery, lots of room to get a good grip on the battery and out it comes. not so with the 14!
  6. Post Your Transformation

    cool topic!! lots of changes for my truck.... and not just on the outside... the day i brought it home: and now: the interior has also changed a bunch. from a totally stock LTZ interior to this... change LEDs in dash and added inlays added lots of blue interior lights: added blue tube lighting inside the cup holder: changed all illuminated buttons inside the truck from stock white to blue: and still one of my favourite things i did was make my bed divider (i just love this thing!): the list of mods is long - lots of details and a bunch of 'how to' posts in my build thread (link below in my sig)
  7. Hey, man! Where did you get that bed divider? I can't tell if it's handmade or if you bought it but I can't find it anywhere! It's awesome!

      Very cool! Thank you!! I'm a woodworker so I will "work my magic" and hope to come out with a cool piece like yours! Thanks again!

  8. i have a bunch of oznium bolts. i don't think there is enough room (depth) for the back of the bolt on the back side of the grommet. that cavity is not very deep. i was going to use bolts on my truck but after putting one in the cavity behind the grommet it sure looked like the bolt was too long.
  9. Construction hazard lights

    what about something like this.... Emergency Hazard Warning Strobe Lights i've never used these, so i can't comment on quality - but something like that might work?
  10. Side molding delete

    i think black badges on a silver truck look deadly!! i absolutely love that look!!
  11. Have you always driven a truck?

    i have always driven a truck. when i first started driving i borrowed my folks early 80's chevy s10. in 1997 i was able to buy my first truck (my dream truck)... 89 chevy stepside! i bought my second truck in 2016 when my wife was pregnant with our second kid... having a 2-seater wouldn't cut it with 2 kids so i got my '14 silverado crew cab (i still have my '89.... love it too much to sell it) i drive my wife's car when i have to, but honestly i'm not a fan of her car... or any car really. i love my trucks... both are lifted and it makes such a difference when seeing what is going on around you on the road.
  12. Joke Thread

    log into the forum this morning.... a gm forum... to see an add for a ford
  13. Lifted stabilitrak fixes?

    i lifted my truck 7.5" and put on 35s and i started getting the stabilitrak track issues... but only turning a hard left. i read of others having this issue somewhere on this forum and it was mentioned that a tire calibration would fix the issue... but only the hypertech recalibrator would do the trick - so that's what i bought and it worked. this is the one i bought: hypertech the stabilitrak has only kicked in once since i did the tire calibration... and that had to do with me having a lot of fun in the snow one afternoon
  14. why not just get any old bowtie (from a wreckers) and paint it? i picked up a 'chrome' bowtie a while ago (below) so i got my old bowtie painted blue to match my truck.... just haven't ever gotten around to installing it
  15. very minor - but the 'caution - ice possible' notification. yea... it's minus freaking 20 outside... i know ice is possible! ha! maybe right around freezing, but anything else i know... it's cold outside and there might be ice. **at least give an option to turn that notification off
