    2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71
  1. My ‘17 Silverado 1500 LTZ with the 8 speed has been hesitating and shifting hard every morning when it’s cold for about the past 6 months. Is that something that would be covered by the TSB for the flush? I’m at just over 45k miles and I’m due for it anyway. If I don’t have to pay for it that would be great.
  2. My truck is mainly a commuter. I drive about 100 miles a day round trip at hwy speed for most of it. I tow and haul occasionally.
  3. What is the maintenance interval for the front and rear differential? I am coming up on 45K on my '17 and I'm going to be doing my transfer case and transmission fluid. Untitled by Brett Valentine, on Flickr
  4. Without reading all 55 pages. I don't want to spend the $$ on a full intake kit as I have another car project in the garage. Is an aFe dry filter worth the money? https://afepower.com/afe-power-31-10292-magnum-flow-pro-dry-s-air-filter
  5. Thanks. Did you have a resonator installed? What about V$ drone?
  6. Did you use your stock exhaust and put the Magnaflow muffler in or was it full custom?

    Thanks!! There’s a definite difference, but I had 35x12.50/18 F rated Ridge Grapplers on my 2500 Ram, so I’m kind used to it. I didn’t like the way the Wranglers rode at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Got mine taken care of this weekend. 275/60/20 Ridge Grapplers and a 2" RC leveling kit. IMG_6087 by Brett Valentine, on Flickr IMG_4688 by Brett Valentine, on Flickr Untitled by Brett Valentine, on Flickr I think I'm going to pick up some vinyl and black out the emblems, get an exhaust put on, and get a tonneau cover, and that's pretty much it. I'm really happy with the truck overall and can't see getting rid of it any time soon.

    Any thoughts on the Rough Country 2.5" lift kit? https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-leveling-lift-kit-1305-10.html . Any alternatives to consider?

    What does +1 mean? I’m looking at tirebuyer.com and they list offsets as +18-31 and back spacing as 5.54-6.18. I know VW/Audi wheel fitment, this is my first time shopping for truck wheels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don’t have time to read through everything, I need tires like now. My stock SRAs are slipping and sliding all over the place on wet roads. I want to upgrade tires and get a level. I’m looking at the rough country 2” lift. What is the biggest tire I can get on stock wheels? I have a ‘17 LTZ Z71 with 20” wheels. It will be a few months before I can upgrade those.

  12. Those that tow a lot, how does your exhaust set up come into play? I put about 2000 towing miles on my truck the past two weeks, and was actually kinda glad I didn’t have a loud exhaust.
  13. I did this at the end of '17 with my '17 LTZ Z71. I bought it December 18th and got pretty much everything but the sunroof. $55K MSRP I paid $39K.
  14. First Drive Review: 2019 Chevy Silverado

    This right here. I had a '12 Ram 1500 pre UConnect, a '14 Ram 1500 with the 8.4" Nav, and a '16 Ram 2500 with the 5.0 Uconnect. The '12 is the only one that work worth a damn. The UConnect on the '14 and '16 gave me nothing but trouble. The UConnect on the '16 was so problematic, I went through three warranty units in three months and either got defective units from Chrysler, or they did the same thing. After a month long wait for the fourth and nothing but excuses, I said the hell with it, dumped it, and bought my current Chevy. Best vehicle decision I've ever made. Between the issue with my Ram, and a huge issue I had with FCA corporate with my wife's '16 Charger, I'll never own another Chrysler product ever again. Having said all that, it's going to take some pretty extreme incentives to get me to trade my '17 for a '19. It's nice, but lack of major improvements in the engine department have me underwhelmed.
