    2018 Silverado LT Z71 5.3L
  1. I totally agree that adding Z71 would be a nice touch.
  2. Back on this forum since 2014

    Those seats look awesome. I can’t wait till next year to get Katskins in mine. You picked a nice color scheme.
  3. I’m keeping my 18 Z71 for at least 6-7 years unless there’s some crazy issues that arise in the next few years. At that point I’ll start looking at what GM and the competition have for offerings. The last several cars/trucks I’d trade in due to putting on higher mileage for work or trade in due to changes/needs in life at that time. Some of the new features and bling is awesome don’t get me wrong and would love to have those, but I’m pretty happy with what the 18 offers minus a few little things. What scares me about RAM is some of the issues that have been reported in other threads. While the interior looks like a million bucks, hearing about simple things falling apart is worrisome.
  4. My 18 Z71 5.3 can feel like a slog sometimes, so I can only imagine the 6 w/4.3 feels like being stuck in molasses from time to time.
  5. Frame Coating

    That doesn't sound too good if that is all they do then. I'll check with the dealer to see what they charge to add a protectant for shits and giggles, even though I bet its overpriced.
  6. Nice looking truck there! When I had my Colorado, the paint was Black and the wheels were a bronze/gray metallic color and looked good. Please post pics of the new wheels when you get those on, I am trying to figure out what color to go with myself when its time to replace these. I only have 2800 miles on my truck so I am having a hard time justifying replacing these tires and wheels yet since there are a few other things I want to do first.
  7. Frame Coating

    Thanks for your experience. Any reputable places to go to or does what the dealer offers decent?
  8. Frame Coating

    I was actually thinking of taking my 18 to this place called Ziebart in my area where they do the undercoating protection. They had quoted me around $350 since I don’t have the time to do it myself. After seeing some of the pics on these forums, some of 2 year old trucks look like they’ve been on the road for 15-20 yrs. Any thoughts or recommendations? https://www.ziebart.com/auto-care-services/vehicle-protection/undercoating
  9. Denali seats conversion

    From what some have said in a few other threads, its not too bad to add the Katzkins yourself. The biggest issue will be that jump seat which seems to be the toughest part of the job.
  10. Camaro framless mirror sold!!!!!!!!

    Does Phil have a harness for this? I have a few Camaro frameless rear view mirrors that I sell. Does it mess with Onstar though?
  11. When I had my 16 Colorado, I had very similar wheels and those do look very nice. Which brand are the ones that you have?
  12. That is quite an interesting move. Is this the norm with GM? Don't get me wrong, I love my 2018 but there is also some nice features in the 2019 that moving forward for them at this point would make more sense and improve the 2019 in a mid-cycle refresh instead of still producing 2018's.
  13. Lol let’s just get this darn thread back on track. Hopefully GM goes back to the drawing board for their mid-cycle refresh and fix the issues people are having with the new 2019s to justify the GM tax increase of a price. I haven’t driven a 2019 yet to see what they drive like, and I do wish my 2018 had some of the features that we should of had a few years ago in GM trucks. I won’t sit here and bash a truck I haven’t driven yet which too many people are doing. By the time I’m ready for my next truck hoping GM gets some of this stuff straightened out and that the prices aren’t another $5-10k higher than where the 2019s are at. One of the most simplest features that I know Ford has had for years and is missing from GM is having all windows with auto up feature. I see that they added all auto down on the windows this year, but how about all going up?
  14. Them Ridgelines are the most hideous “pickup” trucks. Whenever I see one, I always think Honda tried to make a mini Avalanche yet it’s a terrible looking design.
  15. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Mine is doing the same thing and I installed my own. I wonder if there is a batch of these that might need a bit more pressure on them and have expanded a little more than they should have. For now I’ll just live with it. Plus like TXgreek said you forget about it. At first it pissed me off but spending too much time keep taking it off doesn’t make it any better lol.
