  1. According to the photos on Amazon, it does have the gas cap cutout. I plan on ordering some after I get my tires and wheels taken care of.
  2. That's why you set a reminder on your phone for a day or 2 before it's set to renew and call to cancel. Tell them that it's not worth the money and they'll make you a couple of BS offers. If you tell them no 3 or 4 times, they'll hit you with 6 months for around $30. With tax, it comes to a little over $5 a month. I'm on my 3rd promo rate.
  3. I have a 2016 Crew Cab short bed. I had a bad flapper valve and they replaced the entire exhaust system about a month ago. I just ordered an aftermarket cat-back and will have it installed this week. I would like to unload the factory one. If anyone is interested, please let know and make an offer. I'm located in the DFW area, but will ship it to you (at your expense). If this is in the wrong section or not allowed, please let me know.
  4. How did this work out? Thanks for posting the directions. I just realized that I've been blinding people for a while and need to adjust mine down a little bit.
  5. I've been blinding people for a little over a year. I wondered about adjusting the headlights, but kept forgetting. Then this past week it's been foggy as hell, and I turned my brights on to see how far out of whack they were. Turned out that they were way off. I could light up the treetops. I'm going it have to get out this weekend and see what I can do about correcting it.
  6. From what I've read, most tuners don't leave any trace and you can, and should, reset the factory settings before taking it to the dealership to have any work done.
  7. Thank you! I was having a difficult time finding those.
  8. That's exactly what I did. There's only a few that I have been unable to find. Any idea what AVV, HQY, PCW, PDA, R9N, SLM or WMG is?
  9. I found this pretty helpful. My truck is listed as a different color too. I spend a few minutes and looked up every code in my glove box. rpoCodes.pdf
  10. I have spent a considerable amount of my working day on this site reading about mods that I can't afford or that my wife won't let me do. Last night I spend several hours making a spreadsheet of my Service Parts Identification thing in the glove box and looking up the codes to see what gearing, etc my truck has. It was an excellent way to pass the hours away. Not to mention, I learned a thing or two about my truck in the process.
  11. They will replace your exhaust if you are still under warranty. I just got my truck back yesterday morning and it's cured.....at least for now.
  12. I got my truck back today and there's no noise. They replaced the entire exhaust, from the cat back, and everything seems to be working great. I guess time will tell if it's a permanent fix or not. Best thing was, it was covered by the warranty, so I saved $660.
  13. I plan on using some black silicone to hold them against the body. I've read about others using a similar method, and they say it works really well.
  14. I had a 2.25" level kit installed at the Chevy dealership where I bought my truck. I didn't think that it would be enough, but it was. Personally, I would recommend taking it to the dealership and seeing what options they have. Not to mention, if they do it there, your warranty won't be messed with.
  15. I think I've narrowed my tuner purchase down to one of these two options. What do you guys think and why? Got a better option? I'm all ears.
  16. I did a little experiment driving from work to home and then from home to work. I tried to see if setting the cruise lower would really get better MPG. It didn't. With the cruise set at 88, I averaged 19 mpg. Same distance with the cruise set at 77 and I'm averaging 16.5 mpg. Shouldn't it be the other way around?
  17. Still waiting on the dealership to get my new exhaust. Going on 2 weeks.
  18. I completely agree with your statement and I do the same thing. Never screwed with the manual mode, so I'll assume that you're right there as well.
  19. I have a leveled Crew Cab 1500 4x4 with the 5.3 and 25,600 miles and still running the factory 17's (which I will upgrade very soon). I rarely average more than 17-17.5 mpg. Most of my driving, about 85-90%, is highway driving with the cruise set on either 79 mph or 84 mph, depending on which highway I'm on. During the summer, I would average 14-16 mpg with the A/C running constantly. It has just gotten cool enough to not use the A/C here in Texas, so I'm hoping that I'll see a slight increase, but only time will tell.
  20. I'm not sure what brand mine is, but it's 2.25" and it on top. I had it installed at the dealership where I bought my truck.
  21. Just out of curiosity, what did it cost you to get yours painted? I've checked around me and the cheapest I've found is $400. Seems a bit high, but what do I know?
  22. I like those wheels. Did you buy them locally or order them online?
