  1. Lest we forget that "the something" in question here is within the manufacturer's towing limits.
  2. I just recently traded in my 2015 Silverado Z71 Crew Cab with the 5.3 and 6-speed. I tow a 2013 Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup 22BP, which is 3600lbs dry and has a hitch weight of 450lbs. We have loaded the trailer down with all kinds of stuff, I'd estimate at least 1500lbs worth. The truck pulled it like it was nothing. I'd say you're fine with the truck you have. Even if you loaded the trailer to the max, you'd still be in the ballpark of your max towing capacity. Definitely get a weight-distributing hitch to help. Just always travel with empty tanks and you'll be fine.
  3. Another story to add. I hit a concrete post in my 2015 Silverado a month after I got it in 2016. $23,000 worth of damage, including a total frame replacement. It took weeks to get it back, but once I did it was fine. Never had any issues. Just traded in the truck last week after putting 80,000 more miles on it. Yes, the value was diminished, but not terribly.
  4. Probably not what you want to hear, but I wouldn't install one. They look good, but they all compromise the ride, they make it hard to get perfectly aligned, and I've experienced issues with the truck eating ball joints since the install. Granted, that was all on my 2015 Silverado, not my 2020 Sierra, but still...
  5. Didn't file - I'll be keeping my truck for the long haul, so I'm not totally concerned about it. Obviously it's a bummer that my truck is worth less than it used to be, but as far as I see it, with a new frame, many new components, etc., as long as OEM parts are used, it's better than it used to be. As long as you're using a good shop I wouldn't worry about it. There's nothing to be bent or defective if everything affected has been replaced. Personally, I was really hoping they didn't total my truck - I got a good deal on it and didn't want to go through the hassle of finding another "p
  6. Probably not totalled. My truck is coming back from the dealership any day after a $21,000 dollar repair, including replacing the frame. My adjuster said that the formula (for Nationwide at least) is the pre-accident value (34k in my case) minus the post-accident value (10k). Meaning damage up $24,000 would be covered, anything over is totalled. The beauty of body-on-frame trucks is they can replace anything and everything. In my case they just kept removing damaged parts until they found something that was not damaged. On a bright note, if they do decide to fix your truck, you can ma
  7. Must be a radio from a 2014 because it still has pause/rewind. I live in metro Philadelphia so reception isn't a problem.
  8. Hey guys, I picked up my 2015 Silverado CC LT Z71 a few weeks ago, and I love it. One of the first mods I did was to add a wireless charger to the tray on the folded middle front seat. With a triple-coil DIY Qi charger element and a direct wire to micro-USB converter from Amazon and some hot glue, it was a piece of cake. Pop the plastic cover off the bottom of the lid, remove the four screws that hold in the tray, and lift the tray off. Grind the standoffs off and smooth it out with sandpaper. I opted to cut the fabric square out from underneath the tray and hot glue the edges in place.
  9. Hate to pull a Lazarus on a dead thread, but I gotta know - did any of you guys run into difficulties with the passenger seat airbag sensor? I'm afraid that when I install the heater, it'll either A) prevent the airbags from deploying, or B) cause an error light. And I don't want to just heat the driver's seat.
  10. Hey all, I need to write an intro post for myself at some point - I bought a 2015 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LT Z71 a few weeks ago and am loving it so far. That being said, I was bummed when I found out about the lack of HD radio in the 2015s. After loads of lurking on this forum, I saw that someone who sought to add navigation and Apple Car Play ended up with a functional HD radio. I called the vendor (Anthony at MVI) and asked what my options were. He was able to get me a replacement radio with HD for a few hundred bucks. Installation was plug and play. Point being, if you're seek
  11. Can't weigh in on the dropping off in a different location question, but I can attest through personal experience that rented trucks from Enterprise may not have a hitch. I rented an F150 ecoboost from Enterprise a month or two ago (before I bought my new Silverado ) and it did not have a hitch. I think that was intentional on their part. And I've never had any difficulty returning rental cars to different locations. As long as you let them know ahead of time, it shouldn't be a problem.
