  1. I got an OEM bumper painted by a reputable body shop and it has held up very well for 20K miles and I drive in all conditions. A couple small rock chips but nothing serious. I figure that I will get it repainted every 2 to 4 years depending on how it holds up. I may line-x it eventually but I really like the painted look. I also got a chrome grill painted at the same time and it is holding up very well. I clear wrapped the bottom half and left the top half un-wrapped to see the difference. There are no rock chips anywhere.
  2. How To Change 2014-2018 Silverado Sierra 5.3 6.0 6.2 Spark Plugs

    Honestly, this wasn't as bad as people have claimed. I think they had a hard time because they tried to get to the plugs from the top. Going from the fender area makes it pretty easy.

    Ok - Yeah. I will try to get back in there and figure out what is going on and what I can do to fix it. Maybe I'll pull the sound deadening out.
  4. How To Change 2014-2018 Silverado Sierra 5.3 6.0 6.2 Spark Plugs

    You got it! They are super easy to put back in. There are some tabs at the front that help hold them in place until you get the first couple of screws started.

    Haha yes you should have no problem with the 4.3. No, I cleaned it out as best I could. I feel like the sound deadening fell from somewhere else. After thinking about it more, I am wondering if the windshield drains into that area. If it does, that is a poor design. I do plan to investigate it further when I have the time.
  6. In this video (Click Here) I show how to remove the Tailgate, Bed, and Rear Bumper from my 2014 Silverado. The process shown in this video will be identical to Silverado's and Sierras produced between 2014 through 2018; however, the general process will be nearly identical in most pick up trucks including those produced by Dodge and Ford.

  7. The long requested spark plug change video is here! In this video (Click Here) we change the spark plugs on my 2014 Silverado with the 5.3L EcoTec3 L83 V8 motor. The process used in this video should be identical to the 6.0L V8 and the V6 Silverado and Sierra Models as well. This process should be identical for the following vehicles: 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado 2014 - 2018 GMC Sierra And very similar to many other GM trucks like the Tahoe, Suburban, Escalade, and Yukon. ⚠️Try anything shown in this video at your own risk ⚠️ ******************************************************************** 🔩Parts ******************************************************************** 5.3 & 6.2 Spark Plugs ACDelco 41-114 (GM PN 12622441): https://amzn.to/2GGTZFh 5.3 & 6.2 Spark Plug Wires ACDelco 758EE: https://amzn.to/2SNPYpg 6.0 Spark Plugs ACDelco 41-110 (GM PN 12680072): https://amzn.to/2X6XQl8 6.0 Spark Plug Wires ACDelco 748UU (GM PN 19351570): https://amzn.to/2UZQca1 Dielectric Grease: https://amzn.to/2WTXA8V ******************************************************************** Tools ******************************************************************** 6" Magnetic Swivel Spark Plug Socket: https://amzn.to/2E7aZ68 (Note: This will not work on spark plug #8 due to size) 3.5" Magnetic Swivel Spark Plug Socket: https://amzn.to/2GHqq6D (Note: This one should work for spark plug #8) Standard Magnetic Spark Plug Socket: https://amzn.to/2Go0n54 Socket Extensions: https://amzn.to/2GBOOGS (Note: This kit includes a 1.5" extension which was the smallest I was able to find online.
