  1. Oil Change - Dealership vs DIY

    The last time the dealer changed my oil , they splashed oil all over the valve cover. Didn't even try to wipe it up either. Years ago when Dex cool just came out I was at one of those quickie oil change places . The kid asked me if I wanted regular blue windshield washer fluid mixed in with my pink washer fluid. 😜😮 That was the last time I went there With the price of oil so cheap at Wallys I'll change it myself.
  2. Not B.S. It's true. Not that hard to believe lot of hwy miles. I don't jam my brakes on like most people do. I coast to a redlight or stop sign. These trucks stop themselves for the most part if you know how to do it.
  3. You obviously ride your brakes. These should last at least 100,000 miles. Try coasting instead of going from the gas to jamming the brakes on. My 2011 Silverado had 180,000 miles on it before I did a brake job. There was still a lot of pad left too. My 2007 had 165,000 miles on it when I sold it and never touched the brakes. Every Chevy truck I've owned since 1999 has gone way past 100,000 before needing brakes. I'm baffled by the guys that need to replace brakes after 40,000-50,000 miles.
  4. I dig it. Nice truck. I'm for sure not changing brakes to some high buck setup. Not needed. I don't race around.
  5. I'm debating getting a set of red caliper covers for my 2018 Black Silverado. Some guys probably say they are cheesy , some guys like them. I'm on the fence. I think they may add to the overall appearance and I would like to get a set but for $250 I just don't know. What's your opinion? Here's the truck.
  6. This is an easy fix. Any competent body shop could do this easy. Get it done. You have to look at it every day and it will most likely piss you off when you look at it if you don't get it straightened out. No brainier.
  7. I had the dealer adjust a rear door on my 2018 double cab . It was too high by 3/16" compared to the front door. I didn't notice it until I got the truck home the day after I bought it. Looked really bad and there was no way I was going to just leave it. Looks good now. I have to wonder why it got past quality control. If it was mine I would get it adjusted . It would stick out like a sore thumb every time you look at it.
  8. What does being number one in sales really mean in the long run anyways? Or number two or three for that matter? I could really care less who sells the most trucks. It does not matter to me one bit. I've been running Chevy trucks since 1980. Most of them I bought brand new. ( I currently own two 2018 Silverados , number 15 and 16). I highly doubt I'll ever own a Ford or Dodge. Just because they may sell more trucks sure don't make me want to run out and buy one. A lot of guys are getting all butthurt because Dodge just passed GM in truck sales. I'm not. I could care less. We alll know they are an inferior truck with reliability issues. And Ford,as far as I know, they count all the trucks they sell F 150 thru F 650 as truck sales to inflate the numbers. GM only counts 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickups and 3500 chassis cabs. The new Silverado 4500 ,5500, 6500 may put a dent in the competitions truck sales but we will have to wait and see. I haven't even seen one in person on the road yet. Bad news is trucks cost more than ever now and that's not going to change.
  9. Mud flaps on 2015 Silverado

    I've got Luverne mud flaps on both my 2018 Silverados. All rubber with stainless steel. The were put on both trucks day 1. Cost around $175 for all 4
  10. I got killer deals on my trucks there too. They were the best deals by far.
  11. Nice truck. I bought both of my 2018's at Miller Chev too . I'm in Rogers, are you also?
  12. 100K!

    It wasn't as bad as it sounds . On a smooth stretch of freshly groomed trail it was easy. Pretty easy on a lake too. My fastest pic was 120 mph. Had the camera all ready in my lap, pin the throttle to the bars then grab camera and snap a few pics. Easy .
