TRG replied to NEVER AGAIN A GM's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500I'm aware of the pedal flex issue and have shimmed that, but am not aware of the fix that you describe which sounds like you may have done something to the top of the pedal housing to anchor it. Can you post pics?

I just started noticing the "exhaust leak" sound coming from drivers side door/floorboard as well. I've got just about 4,000 miles on the truck with range and Borla Catback exhaust. All of the Borla clamps are tight and exhibit no signs of an exhaust leak, which makes sense to me, as the sound is not coming from the passenger side...it's driver side only. Annoying.
TRG posted a topic in For Sale/WantedI have the following items for sale individually or as a whole. They are brand new, never used, in the box. I had purchased to replace the Fuel Pump system on my 2007 Sierra (new model), but ending up trading in the truck instead. Here are the parts, part #s and asking price: 1 – GM Fuel Pump Retainer Lock Ring (GM# 10325852/ACD# TR26) $5.00 1 – GM Sensor Kit (GM# 19168426/ACD# SK1294) $50.00 1 – Fuel Pump with seal – (GM#19206532/ACD# M10206) $200 I will sell all 3 together for $230 and that includes shipping. I will also sell the Sensor Kit and Fuel Pump separately if need be for the prices stated (including shipping).
Looks good! Did you have to re-calibrate the speedo when you went with that size rubber? Also any issue with that size and gear ratio and/or noticeable power reduction? I currently have 45 and want to bump up to 55 to have more meat on the tire and not worry about dinging up the rims, but thought I heard that there could be an issue depending on what you have for a gear ratio....
I went with the DC as I wanted to stay with the standard bed size and my kids are young, so wasn't really all that concerned with the space in the backseat. But now that I feel them constantly kicking the back of my seat coupled with how infrequent the bed is actually filled up, makes me second guess that decision a bit...
You could always split the difference and go 2.25”. I went with ReadyLift 2.25” and left the back stock. I’ve only had it for a couple thousand miles, but no issues what so ever and I don’t notice the ride being any rougher than stock.
TRG replied to TRG's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500Ya - I don’t want to remove the under coating protection at all. I’ve just never seen clumps/layers of dirt stick to a frame like that and not be able to be sprayed clean with a hose.
TRG replied to TRG's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500I don't think I've ever seen an undercoating act (and feel) like a sticky adhesive like that. Seems like others have had the same experience or are trying to replicate - haha.
TRG posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500I've got a 2018 Silverado going through it's first winter in the Northeast. I live on a dirt road that gets real muddy during mud season. I just gave my truck it's real first cleaning and noticed that the undercarriage coating on the frame is sticky and acting like an adhesive. There's layers of dirt that are stuck to the frame that I can't seem to spray off with a hose or a power washer! So basically the frame looks brown with dirt caked on instead of black (particularly near the wheel wells). So my question is, does anyone have any tips for cleaning the frame to get the dirt off without compromising the undercoat sealant? I'm thinking the only thing that will work is some type of hard brush, but think that will damage the sealant that is on the frame...
