That is so funny, literally describing how it went for me! My biggest point of contention was what they wanted to give me for my truck because I already had them exactly where I wanted them on the new one, financed it for 48 months instead of the 60 I was at and my payment only went up $125 a month. I am very happy with the purchase, only thing has been going from the GMC to the Chevy but I'm working through it lol
Next update guys! I sincerely hope everyone can forgive me because prior to taking it to the shop this morning for the installation of the 2.5" level/lift I completely forgot to take a before picture. But let me tell you there is a noticeable difference! These are the after pics and man oh man am I happy with how she looks, she looks like an actual truck now...a truck that isn't nosediving or looking for a lucky penny. Now I am sure it will be noted that I am currently suffering from TTS (Tiny Tire Syndrome), which is a very real disease and a common occurrence. Don't y'all worry though, the new 33's are in transit and had a slight misunderstanding and ended up in the wrong place...long story short the tires will be here on Friday and will be put on early next week! The 33's should hold me over for a brief period of time, that is until I want 35's again but only time will tell that story. Not pictured are the new Weathertechs, so that's pretty exciting! Next up besides the tires will be reinstalling the behind the grille light bar and some other goodies coming soon! Thanks for following along and I hope y'all like her progression as much as I do!
TyGriff13 replied to RKMichael's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI'll report back to you on the rub on my new truck, I bought my 18 Silverado and the 2.5" level is going on tomorrow and the 285/75/18's on going on next week. After all my research I don't see it being an issue, however the 33x12.50x20's after doing my research and talking to some people those would probably rub.
3.5" lift w/ 35x12.50x20's. First lifted 2019 that I have seen and it's sharp! This truck is at Woody Folsom in South Ga. https://www.woodyfolsomchevroletolds.com/VehicleDetails/new-2019-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_RST-Baxley-GA/3268052913
3.5" Lift w/ 35x12.50x20's. This is the first lifted 2019 I have seen and I am impressed! https://www.woodyfolsomchevroletolds.com/VehicleDetails/new-2019-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_RST-Baxley-GA/3268052913
I just bought my 2018 Silverado last week mostly because the deal was just too good to pass up on. When the 2014 body styles came out I hated them, flat out thought they were atrocious. I thought no way in hell am I going to get rid of my 2008, well then about a year later someone rear ended me and totaled my 08 and I was so close to buying a 2013 that I had found but I thought that didn't make much sense and bought a 2015. I still wasn't sold on it, at first, I absolutely fell in love with that truck. One of the hardest trucks to say goodbye to was that one but I got an offer way too kind to turn down and I ended up buying my 14 Camaro, which I still own, and my 14 Sierra, which I just sold to buy my 18 Silverado. I say all that to say this...I LOVE, absolutely love the 2019's. They didn't have to grow on me, I didn't need any convincing, nothing. I just look at them and I say WOW. I mean look at that thing! This is at Woody Folsom in South Georgia. 3.5" lift w/ 35x12.50x20's. WOW.
I am going to give this a shot, my 2014 had a rough idle and I just noticed yesterday my 18 is doing it as well. As far as the original post goes, I've been to plenty of dealerships that just don't care. I've lived in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Michigan, Tennessee, and now Texas, my mindset is that if one dealer treats me poorly regardless if its service, sales, management or whomever I go on down the road to the next dealer. I can honestly say all the places I have lived there has been at least one dealership that has taken excellent care of me no matter what the issue was. I can also assure you that I tell everyone I know in that area the dealers that I vouch for and the ones that I don't, I'm in sales in the construction industry so I speak to a lot of people on a weekly basis who drive trucks and living in mostly the South, trucks are a frequent topic of conversation. Word of mouth can take a toll on someones business. And just for good measure I own a 2014 Camaro SS, heavily modified but still it doesn't have a rough idle at all and never did while it was stock.
Hey Steve, welcome to the forum! I would say that price is a bit high, I paid a little less than that for my CPO 2018 Silverado LTZ with only 2700 miles. Full blown retail on that Denali is probably around $38k. If I were you I'd do some digging around and find a comparable vehicle at a better price and use that as some leverage. I would also seriously recommend taking a look at a 2018 LTZ or SLT, they are giving the these things away right now for less than $39k because of the 2019's coming out. Happy hunting and good luck!
Last thing that occurred this weekend was one of the boxes finally decided to show up! Wonder what could be in there?? Thanks for following along guys, there will be more updates coming very soon!
The toolbox went on in a matter of minutes and then we decided to go ahead and throw on the K&N Blackhawk cai. Which of course involved several more cold beers, in our defense it was about 100 on Friday afternoon. The cai went on perfectly and that was about it for Friday, we backed the truck out of the garage and left it there for the rest of the day/evening and got an Uber to dinner...don't drink and drive!
