  1. Which cover are you entering to win? I would like to enter to win the LOMAX cover for my green 2014 Silverado with the 5’8” short bed. Tell us why the LOMAX cover is perfect for your truck? This cover would be perfect for my truck because it is easy to use, weathertight and secure enough for transporting valuable items. What features are most important to you when buying a tonneau cover, why? I need a sturdy folding cover that is water resistant and secure enough to keep valuable cargo safe when going to and from the range or the beach. Do you have a tonneau cover on your truck? If so, which cover is it? Why are you looking for a change? No, I do not currently have a cover. I bought the truck a few months ago and am waiting on my tax refund. What do you use your truck for? Primarily as a daily driver but also for hunting, fishing, home improvement projects and more. Which cover are you entering to win?
  2. Congrats on the new truck. I bought a CPO 2014 LTZ a few weeks ago and love it.
  3. I have never posted this here but wanted to share a few photos of my 1972 Cheyenne Super short bed. I bought this truck a few years ago after selling an old Mustang from a guy in another state. It has had a few mods over the years but is a highly optioned truck that originally came with the 402 big block engine, automatic transmission, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes and tilt steering wheel. Unfortunately the original engine is gone but in its place is a 400 small block with long tube headers and Flowmaster dual exhaust. The original color code is 546 (Tangier orange with a white roof) but has been painted in the Deluxe code 594 two-tone color scheme. I suspect the tailgate was replaced as the white stripe does not extend onto that area and it is missing the chrome molding. The truck has also been lowered with what looks like a 2/4 drop kit. Since buying the truck I have added new wheels and tires, valve covers, plug wires/looms, bluetooth radio with speakers, new chrome a/c vents, aftermarket oil pressure and water temp gauges, new locks, fuel line, refinished the original emblems, repaired the inner front fenders, rewired the entire front end, added an electric fan, swapped in an original tachometer cluster and some other stuff. At this point the only real rust in the truck is in the bed which is covered with a plastic liner. My plans are to replace the bed floor and paint the tailgate, add some bigger wheels and install a 4/6 drop kit. I'm also debating restoring the original A/C system or going with an aftermarket setup instead. Eventually I'm going to go back to a big block or do a LS swap but haven't decided yet. At this point the biggest limitation is money but we all know how that goes. For fun I have also included a few photos next to my daily driver, a 2014 Silverado LTZ 4x4. The '14 has a 3" lift kit so completely dwarfs the little short bed and is several feet longer. My wife likes the newer truck but refuses to ride in the old one because the A/C doesn't work and the exhaust smells. It is mostly a garage queen anyway so the only thing it ever hauls is ass lol.
  4. I am in the same boat and am leaning towards a 6.2 Sierra SLT. In my case I want the Z71 package but understand it is only available with the 3.23 gears. Good to know it will get up and go, I don't tow anything and the only thing I plan to haul is ass.
  5. I think a RCSB looks best but for practical purposes the CCSB is a close second.
  6. Sweet truck! I'm a little jelly as I would love to build a RCSB but needs dictate a crew cab. Looking forward to seeing what you do next.
  7. Dayum this is a sick build, can't wait to see more.
  8. That's the pay slot for the day after the warranty expires.
  9. My 72 Cheyenne Super has the 5x5 bolt pattern but some trucks came with 8 lug wheels. If your Sierra is 6-lug then the wheels won't fit.
  10. My first car was this 68 Mustang GT convertible. It is amazing how many good times I had in this car over the years and still regret letting her go.
  11. Wow that's pretty cool. Can you post more details and photos about your setup? Tell me about the cutout and how you operate it from inside the cab.
  12. Wow Marv this is a cool build thread. I have been thinking of buying a new(er) RCSB and doing something similar. I like the color matched parts and the clean look of the tailgate now. Looking forward to see where you go next!
  13. Wow this is a very interesting thread. I know it takes time but would really like to see more photos of the whole process.
  14. I will probably get flamed here but installed QTP cutouts on my 2014 Mustang GT. They worked really well and were completely dependable. Wound up selling the car and bought a 1972 Chevy truck so all is well with the world.
