I had a 97 Ram way back that used to go through those things like crazy. Replace them with brass and put the new one in the freezer for a couple hours before you change it. Makes it ever so slightly smaller and easier to go in.
Definitely never saw that wheel before. I had to put the spare on my 15 over the weekend. It's definitely a steelie. This is the wheel that I've seen most commonly. I had an 06 Titan before this truck, and the spare was actually a matching alloy wheel.
I have 57k on my factory LS2s, and they're getting a little worn. Trying to decide whether to go with another set of these, or something else. I've had a good experience with the LS2s, no shaking or anything like that. I could probably get 60k+ out of them, but I'm thinking about replacing them while GM is offering price match and $200 rebate. Looking at either another set of LS2s, Continental CrossContact LX20s, or Hankook Ventus STs. What do you guys think? Truck is a street queen and it doesn't snow down here. Just looking for a smooth and quiet ride, long life, and max MPG.
Back to the original topic.... I had a 1st Gen Titan before I bought my current Silverado, and I wouldn't hesistate to own another one. I owned it 10 years, and put 184k on it, and it NEVER ONCE saw the inside of a mechanic shop. Worst problem it ever had was a broken clockspring, and I changed that myself. Other than crappy MPG, I have zero complaints about that thing. When it came time to buy a truck, I wasn't really in love with the looks of the new ones, and I wanted better MPG as I drive for work now, plus I come from a big Chevy family, so I came back home to the bowtie.
The back window, tailgate band, and steering wheel from my first truck, a 1981 GMC Sierra Classic. I had changed the steering wheel out, so I made a plaque for it and mounted it on my wall. After I wrecked it , I took the back window out because it was hanging and about to fall out. After one night in the junkyard, someone went and stole things out of it and off of it, so I took off pretty much everything that I could unbolt. I had the window and tailgate band stored in an old shed at my parents' house, pretty much forgotten about. My dad was tearing down the shed a while back and asked if I remembered that they were in there. Told him I wasn't sure what I would do with them, and he suggested this. I love it.
I use an old hard drive iPod in my 15. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it does work, it's very laggy. I read somewhere that MyLink doesn't like the hard drive iPods, as it's made to work with flash memory type devices.
It's like a cateye that the chrome bar fell off haha. There's a 1st Gen Equinox around town here that's missing the bar and bowtie on the grille. Looks just like this lol
That nose is terrible. Looks like the grille is missing.
My wife's 2010 Equinox has started having a gas smell when she fills up. It only smells when the tank is full. After she drives it for a day and burns a little of it off, the smell is gone. Smells like it is coming from the rear driver side. Doesn't smell around the fuel filler on the passenger side. Any ideas what might be causing it? Evap canister maybe? It's not hard to put gas in, my Silverado is actually worse to fill up than this thing.
