My guess is 2018 must be limited by now. I got my leftover 18 late last December for 25% off MSRP. It's a loaded LTZ and I'm happy with it. I was also happy with my 16. Both trucks had the 6 speed and 3:42 rear.
Agree with this post. I'm on the fence with the ceramic coat process. I've restored and painted cars, detailed cars etc. over the years. I'm sure I could handle the DIY route for the ceramic stuff. I did a bit of research on products and process etc. It turns out most of what I found out is you are buying into a new process. In other words, you're not just swapping out wax/sealant for ceramic coating and everything else stays the same. If I want to wash my truck after ceramic, I'm advised to use a specialized wash meant for ceramic coatings. If I want to use a quick detailer after I wash my truck, I'm advised to use a specialized ceramic coating appropriate quick detailer. I'm advised to use specific applicators and go through microfiber towels like they're going out of style. The other thing I found out is the unused ceramic coating has a very short shelf life, so for the high expense you had better use it quickly (I think Myabi was within 30 days). I've got a cabinet full of detail supplies as well as a rotary, flex and cyclo machine. I like the concept of the coating technology, and I've used nano technology in some of the menzerna polishes in the past, but for now I think I'm going to just do my 18 Silverado the way I've always done it.
Already posted early on in this thread, and I feel for you guys. I bought a new 2018 a couple months ago but I would be very distraught if this was an issue I was dealing with on a new 19. I hope GM takes care of you guys full circle, buy back, replacement of items, etc. ...
I just removed my LS2s with 1800 miles on my new 18 Silverado. Looks like I have the same wheels as you, the 20" chrome. I went with the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S in stock size OWL facing out. Dressed up the truck and had them road forced balanced. Only been 500 miles but so far so good. I agree the LS2s road nice, but pretty plain looking and I'm not a Goodyear fan. I'm selling my set on craigslist.
The handle is not the issue as much as the crease in the door panel, at least as far as body work goes. Typically, even for a small spot on a panel, they would sand, fill, base coat the spot and then clear the whole panel to hide the fix. As someone else pointed out, even with a new door, they would have to paint it and also blend into the fender and rear door to get it to match possibly. Probably better off with new handle (painted to match), lock cyl replacement and fix the existing door skin. Another option, if the paint is not cracked on door skin, is a paintless dent removal place like dent wizard. It maybe worth a try.
outrag1 replied to TXGREEK's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraSame as everybody else, my 18 CC (Mexico) has fender bracket painted on drivers side and galvanized steel looking bracket on passenger side, however no rust. I wonder if the L and R brackets were supplied by different vendors and therefore the difference? In any event, it looks like the bracket could be removed without disrupting fender alignment (3 bolts on the body and 1 on the fender). I'm sure there are other body brackets that are the same that can't be seen. I'm doing nothing with mine unless it starts to rust heavily, but no sign of that now even through a bad New England winter of salt, etc.
outrag1 replied to dieselfan1's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraGlad to see this topic. I wonder how many "non-forum" people are happy with their trucks. Probably a good percentage. I had great luck with my 16 and so far love my 18. Chevy makes the best looking trucks.
