  1. I just installed this on my ZR2 and like you mentioned, it seems to be too short for the current body style. I bet this part has been around quite a while which may have fit the pre-2019 trucks perfectly. However, it seems the new body style beds may be slightly longer, or the dimensions changed just enough to render this cover not as snug as previous models. I have tried to readjust many times, and when I have it snug against the cab, then the tailgate doesn't meet the rubber seal when closed and has probably a 1/4" gap or more not sealed thus allowing a lot of water in through the tailgate area. Then, when I adjust the cover back toward the tailgate slightly to help with that gap, I now have a significant gap near the cab. I think REV (a.k.a Bakflip) did not modify this cover at all for the new style trucks and are simply saying this part# fits the current 2019 and newer trucks to save money. I don't expect water tight, but I am getting too much water during a rain to justify keeping this $1k cover. I am taking mine back to the dealer for a full refund and going back to the drawing board.
  2. I stand corrected and thank you. I thought there was a minor difference but it appears they are the same other than the chrome 6.2 badge which I wish wasn't on mine. Honestly, I am not a fan of the hood scoop period. It's non functional and impedes viewing over the hood. Is it actually bolted onto the hood on simply stuck with 3M? If it is stuck with 3M, I may remove it. If not, I have to live with it. Or, maybe I will have a body shop cut out holes in the front of the scoop where there are multiple indentations to help the engine breath better. And, it's so weird that on both the trailboss pictured and in the chevy accessories catalogue, only front mud flaps are available....SMH.
  3. No massaging seats, but significantly more comfortable than the previous gen seat for sure. The interior is what sold me on the truck. The shocks are amazing as well. The thin lights are running lights similar to a Raptor or TRX that look really cool. The front bumper, grille, and hood scoop are ZR2 specific which I like so it doesn't look like every other Chevy out there.....as it should for the price they are asking. I am sure the black looks amazing as well, but my days owning black trucks are over lol.
  4. Careful, the word Democrat is a fighting word with my in-laws. They are die hard Republicans. I think you will find more and more Dems are converting after the current debacle
  5. I traded in a 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 Limited, and I can honestly say that yes the seats are much better than the pre-refresh seats. I felt the GMC seats were hard and my butt/back would hurt even on the shortest of drives. I recently drove the ZR2 5.5 hours and had no discomfort whatsoever. A major improvement in my humble opinion.
  6. I’ve had it 2 weeks now. Love the shocks and the ride. I want to remove the chrome Silverado badge on the tailgate and black out the chrome 6.2 on the hood. I added the Putco dark chrome door sill protectors which thankfully they mimic the black chrome trim throughout the interior.
  7. Just picked up a new Silverado ZR2 and am considering the rocker protection. Anyone have experience? Will it work with high clearance steps? Thanks! https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/door-sill-rocker-panel-protection-by-lund-associated-accessories-19432307?year=2021&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Short Box&wheelId=651&trim=Custom&trimId=125&drive=RWD&driveId=7&engine=2.7L L4 GAS&engineId=17697&bodyNumDoors=5
  8. I don't keep my money in the bank. I keep it stashed and buried ?
  9. Hey everyone, this is my first Diesel and am coming up on my first fill up. I googled this topic and have read about Stanadyne amongst others. Does my new L5P need this and what’s the best additive if so? Thanks for your help.
  10. Where in PA? I’m in Binghamton next to Scranton. Does the package have necessary hardware? Is it simply screws?
  11. Purchased today. 3500HD AT4's are hard to find and I had to drive 4 hours one way to get this girl
  12. Nice and cleaned up before driving 4 hours home. For a 3500, it rides amazing and I enjoyed getting to know her on the journey today.
