brholtz02 replied to Bobbigboy's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI've been looking at the Defender for my Silverado, again mixed reviews....only have 19000 miles on the Goodyear Eagles but I don't think I want to go through another winter with them.
It appears to still have a little water in the bed, but it is channeled to the drains better, Haven't had it out in a "downpour" yet, but it appears better then prior to the TSB repair.
Mine was finally finished Tuesday, a process that started the week of Memorial Day. I never considered it a "severe" leak. The new panels do seem to lock together much tighter. Guess we'll see if the fix makes the bed water tight. In the mean time I've come up with a hack for my truck that solves the problem. Made a pull out tray and have a 4'x6' bag. For me it's not a huge deal, I bought the truck because it was distinctive and it was $9500.00 off before my supplier discount.
This is the TSB that my dealer has been working on for the past month. One of the bags of parts had the correct part number, but contained parts that did not fit and they had to go through "parts tech" to sort it out, still waiting for the correct parts. I don't see anything in 18-NA-135 about new panels but I've got three new panels as part of the service the dealer is performing. Thanks for posting the link, I've tried to find it on my own and have been unsuccessful, will include it in my file.
Good luck with a lemon law. Every article that I have read about the High Desert package states that it is "water resistant". Kinda like the difference between my work boots and my waders.
I can not answer that. All I know there are three boxes in the bed that have new panels in them. Since it's going to be 3 weeks for the rest of the parts to arrive, I've picked up my truck with a disassembled insert. I have not compared the old panels to the new ones..
Mine is in the process of having the TSB work performed. The bag of seals and gaskets that has the correct part number is wrong. They've talked with "parts tech" and the correct seals are still being manufactured, 2-3 weeks before they arrive. The"fix" includes new panels, seals and gaskets, hopefully it will correct the issue. The TSB is for the early models, wonder if anybody with a 2018 has leak issues.
I've been waiting 6 weeks for the dealer to get the parts. At first they just blew me off, but I sent an e-mail to a contact in Chevy corporate and that got the ball rolling. I put dielectric grease on all the seals, it helped a little.
