  1. Greetings, all. ​I'm still learning here and am wondering about something I ran across recently. (Sincere thanks to everyone on here who has already been a huge help to me thus far!) I understand that the increased-power/heavy duty alternator (part number 22949467) appears to have made its way into many 2015 CrewCab models and other models with the snow plow-prep package. It seems tied to RPO 5W4 (which, in several sources I've researched, ties back to "VEHICLE SPECIAL SERVICE, MUNICIPAL" - makes sense for a snow plow-prep package). ​I scored a fantastic deal on one of these units for
  2. My apologies for any potential confusion here... Our forum moderators continue to do an exemplary job, especially facing the overwhelming influx of posts that they must be tasked with reviewing each day. This specific post was, properly, tailored for a unique sub-genre of our forums as I originally composed it (the guns/hunting forum). However, it was "reclassified" here. That said, I sincerely apologize for the disjointed nature that may have resulted. Again, to be clear, this was of NO fault of our moderators. Regardless, I would like to both reiterate the commitment to this forum, as
  3. Hey there. I'm new to the forum, but not nearly GM forums in general. My brand new-to-me 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab LTZ Z71 4X4 has gone in for window tint and full detailing just this past weekend. Now that this work has been all done, I've made my introduction into the "new member" forum already. However, I now want to make a quick introduction to this specific interest group of friends. Myself, I own a Glock 41 Gen4 MOS and have my concealed carry permit. I'm proud to be a responsible owner and am looking forward to learning from, and participating in, this specific for
  4. Anyone have experience in pulling the factory front strut assemblies out from the bottom - without disconnecting any ball joint and/or swaybar links, etc. - like a weekend driveway boss? Although I can't find the original link following all of my research on the subject, I recall a fellow owner once saying that it can indeed be done on our '14/15s. Any confirmation of this fact? If not, I'm totally great with the driveway experimentation, and subsequent "sticky" write-up(s), that I've become renowned for on many other GM forums that I've been fortunate to have participated in.
  5. You bring up great points here, sdeeter19555. However, to make a very long story very, very short... I moved up here to Pittsburgh, PA (from Orlando, FL) in order to get a master's degree from Duquesne University. I brought my Florida purchased/tagged 2011 Chevrolet Equinox 2LT AWD up here with me. In early July, some <ahem> creative individual executed what I now understand to be colloquially referred to as a "Pittsburgh Left" upon me (i.e. I had the green light, I fully indicated that I was going to be crossing over the highway and the other driver assumed that he could 'beat
  6. No idea what's going on up here, my friend. I contacted my dealer in this matter and they said, verified by a Pennsylvania DOT representative, that I'd have to strip no less than 201 pounds off of this truck before they would even consider a re-class. Your profile mentions that you're a fellow Central Floridian. What part? I'm from Orlando (Avalon Park - used to own a townhouse in the Spring Isle subdivision) myself. On an aside, you've got good instincts in having Pennsylvania on your short-list of states this far up. The folks up here are good and the Fall scenery simply ca
  7. Yeah, man, it confused me too. ESPECIALLY since I also own a 1993 Chevrolet K3500 Cheyenne Crew Cab Turbo Diesel 4X4 that's been registered in Pennsylvania for only about the past year or two...but received no weight class rating whatsoever. Pennsylvania will always hold a special place in my heart (since I was born and raised here), but I am, admittedly, looking forward to getting back to the sun and stress-free life back in Florida.
  8. Amen, sir! I used to live in Pennsylvania (born and raised properly here, actually) decades ago, well before I moved to Florida. But so, so much has changed. Some good, some bad. It happens everywhere. Pennsylvania will always be my "home" state (NO state is more picturesque in the Fall), but there are some things that still remind me of why I moved to Florida in the first place. No disrespect whatsoever; Pennsylvania gave me many wonderful experiences/gifts, but, yeah, I'm also looking forward to getting back to Florida.
  9. Thanks, man! I'm having awesome experiences with folks here already. Glad to be a part of the community.
  10. Got it. Thank you for the info, sir! I was more than a bit confused. You'll probably get a kick out of this too then. I called the dealer because I thought my little colored registration sticker for the plate was wrong. In Florida, it's strictly tied to the owner's birthday (all my stickers have always been in March). So now, with this Silverado, that I'm already in love with, I have inspection stickers showing August, a plate registration sticker showing September and purchase documents showing October. Which brings me to my next reply... Man, Pennsylvania has an "intere
  11. Hey, all. I'm a new member living in Pittsburgh, PA at the moment, until I complete my masters program at Duquesne University and move back home to Orlando, FL afterward. I just bought a brand new-to-me 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab LTZ Z71 4X4 (my FL-owned/registered 2011 Chevrolet Equinox LT2 AWD was totalled a couple months back). All that said, I have no idea how registration is handled here in PA. Registering a pickup in Florida is pretty darn easy and straightforward (heck, the dealer had to explain to me what the ugly "inspection stickers" on the windshield of my Silverado
  12. Hey there. I'm new to the forum, but not nearly GM forums in general. My brand new-to-me 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Double Cab LTZ Z71 4X4 is going in for window tint and full detailing tomorrow. After that's all done, I'll take some photos and post up in the "new member" forum, but I wanted to make a quick introduction to this specific group. I own a Glock 41 Gen4 MOS and have my concealed carry permit. I'm proud to be a responsible owner and look forward to learning from, and participating in, this forum category.
  13. That's correct, last truck. They're the Rancho QuickLift LOADED leveling struts (springs already installed; complete, ready to directly install units. Without having to compress and/or remove any springs form either the original or replacement struts, O_J_Simpson, I'm wondering if it's possible to drop the old unit right out the bottom without having to remove ball joints or even sway bar links? Work has been crazy this week, so I've only been able to start doing very minor upgrades thus far (the truck is getting tinted and fully detailed tomorrow - I'll post a photo when it's
