  1. I did this as well. I put about 14000 miles on the truck this year and just redid them. Honestly they could have just stayed but I did it for peace of mind.
  2. Fan speed with Phone Call?

    My 2014 does it as well. Just went out and tested it. I guess I never noticed it before but that is a pretty cool feature
  3. Mine does it but only when it is hot as hell outside, living in Mississippi that is often. It is always one audible pop and then that is it. Although I will say just about every car I have had down here in the South has done it once summer comes around.
  4. Zone 4.5

    Great looking truck man.
  5. Zone 4.5

    I second this. I am looking into the Zone 4.5
  6. Glad he is ok. I wonder if he is going to fall in love with the truck and want to do a trade! Maybe that was the dealer's thought process all along haha
  7. Bestop Powerboard Questions

    I found the wired in AMP ones. I think I will be going with them. I agree with not drilling into my truck. I will find a way through existing wiring. Thank you for the help fellas
  8. I ran a couple searches but could not come back with any reviews on the Bestop Powerboards. I have seen positive and negative online, about as much as I have for the AMP Research boards. I do not want to plug into the OBD-II port to control them so I was looking at Bestop since their boards are wired in and seem to run around $1,050 shipped. If anyone has had any experience with these first hand could you let me know your thoughts? Thank you!
  9. Black paint swirls

    I am in the same boat rowing with you. I have had mostly black vehicles over the years and have always been able to keep them pretty swirl/scratch free. This GMC is the thinnest paint and clear I think I have ever seen. When I get in the buying line again silver is what I want to go with.
  10. ACDelco rotors warped after 7k?

    The highway vibrations could very well be a warped rotor. I had some vibrations in my Mustang up around 70-80mph and turned out to be a warped front rotor, slightly warped but warped none the less.
  11. I do not have the 18" wheel so that negates some of my statement but I do run the duratracs. I have the 275/65/20 wheel/tire set up. When I FIRST got them mounted I remember pulling away and them feeling "heavier" which they are. I have had them for about 10,000 miles and I do notice some slight vibes when slowing to a stop (kind of creeping up to a light). I think what you are feeling is poor wear and the knobs grabbing at slow speed. They are great tires if rotated religiously. Maybe that was owner 1's issue.
  12. What do you use your Silverado for?

    Commute 27 miles round trip, I use it for work as well ( I am in construction lending ), haul crap, help the lady out hauling crap for her work sometimes, hunting, general trips off road. I got out of the truck world for a couple years and really missed it. I am glad I came back.
  13. Running Boards & Bed Liner

    Ah! I see the British Columbia in your bio there now haha. I was thinking around $250 and let them haggle me down to around $200. Mine are in good shape but do have the wear and tear of 55,000 miles. Side note and do not mean to thread jack but my father lives in Seattle, WA and owns a 48' Tollycraft yacht. We went many times on my summer vacations into BC, Victoria being the main place that comes to mind. Beautiful country up there. Also I have a Line-X liner on my truck. Bed prep is key on that set up. My local shop here in Mississippi did it for 435 taxes included and it has held up wonderfully.
  14. Running Boards & Bed Liner

    Donstar what has been about the going rate for the take offs? I am thinking about (very preliminary thinking mind you) about doing the power steps from Amp. I was just curious what you had seen on the market as to how much I could put back into the Amp purchase.
  15. I am not trying to bring up a huge debate on it but do you think this could be the Direct Injection engines and the carbon deposits? Would a BMW walnut shell blast to clean up the deposits be a good maintenance item to be considered at 100,000 miles possibly? Maybe make it a list item for every 30,50,75K miles depending on how "on top of it" you wanted to be?
