Welcome to the forum! Time for a center console swap! My RST has the factory center console with the two cup holders and the little "3rd" cup holder between them (think red bull can size) Remember there are two additional cup holders in the rear of the center console (for back seat passengers, but you can use them) If you don't want to do that, I think there are storage solutions that sit on the transmission tunnel between the dash and the seats.
I would think most mfg's call for synthetic nowadays. Not sure, but if i had to venture a guess... Enjoy that new turbo motor, OP and post some pics of your new ride! Do you plan on doing the oil changes yourself?
Vicarod replied to vette10r's topic in Silverado / Sierra & Future Vehicle Speculation & Spy ShotsIf you want the new interior, you'll have to wait until 2022. Your trade won't be as much then. Used truck prices are bonkers right now. It's why I am considering selling my 2019 RST.
The interior is where most of the refresh will be done. The outside will get mild updates as typical in a mid-cycle refresh. GM is taking a pounding on the interior and it is deserved. Ram and Ford interiors are much nicer, even though the Chevy interior is functional. The anticipation is that the interiors of the trucks will be similar to the 2021 full size SUV's. I've sat in the new 2021 Yukon, and I have to say it's very nice. If GM goes that route, I think a lot of people will be satisfied with the interior.
Congrats on your new truck. Man, I really like those TB's. It also has the safety package on it which is the one thing I wish my RST had. Amazing that dealers aren't ordering these trucks with that option. It's $800 and worth it in my opinion (although it should be standard IMO) Pickup Truck Plus SUV Talk has a video out about the lack of a transmission cooler on the 2019 and up Tundras. Toyota says it just isn't necessary. Agree or not, that's their stance on it.
Although I don't have one, I found this: https://www.autoanything.com/tonneau-covers/truxedo-sentry-tonneau-cover It looks to be a really nice cover and certainly more secure than the velcro ones that are out there. And it has a canvas cover option. Seems to have some decent reviews. I have only had the cheaper vinyl soft roll-ups.
Jbrockltd, welcome to the forum. Although not from Canada, my 2014 Silverado was. The frame was professionally undercoated. I feel that this expedited the rust on the frame as once water intrusion happened behind the undercoating, it was trapped between the frame and undercoating. I am no expert on this procedure but be wary of undercoating ANY truck frame in areas where road salt is used. Do your research and look into Fluid Film or similar (lanolin?) type of coatings that need to be applied yearly. Much success with these processes from what I have read. Fortunately I live in the South where frame rust is much less of an issue...12 months in, and my frame looks brand new still. My 2000 Silverado has no frame or rocker rust issues...and the brake lines look brand new.
Available through any dealer if you don't want to go through the website. More expensive, though... https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/garage-door-opener-package-(for-vehicles-equipped-with-auto-dimming-rearview-mirrors)-84350235?year=2020&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Standard Box&wheelId=652&trim=RST&trimId=4962&drive=4WD&driveId=8&engine=5.3L V8 GAS&engineId=2059&bodyNumDoors=5
Listen to your girlfriend...60k power train. Just keep an eye (ear) on it.
Piston slap on Gen III LS engines is an overblown issue. Many engines rebuilt for no reason at all. Our 2000 Silverado had it at 85k when I bought it and it still has it at 180k now that it is my son's truck. I hope for the OP's sake that this is just typical engine noise as described in the bulletin that someone provided. Hard to tell from a recording.
I had a TonnoSport by Access on my 2014. Paid $340 for it on Autoanything. Really enjoyed that cover. It was a roll-up. I don't like the tri-folds. I have a LoRoll by TonnoPro for my 2019. Paid $270 for it on Autoanything. Although a better looking cover IMO, it doesn't fit as well as the TonnoSport did. Not as happy with this one. Not as water tight as the Access top was but not horrible. The latching mechanism is far inferior to the one on the Access cover.
