Well I went from a midsize to full size. I owned a 2016 Colorado CC SB. What I liked about It was easier to fit in parking lots/garage/gas mileage. It did lack interior space for Pets/ Kid but it was doable. Also with our camper it wasn’t pleasant to haul around but again it was doable. I probably would still have it if it wasn’t a POS. Lots of quality issues with it and I couldn’t take it! Ended up finding a Used 17’ Silverado CC SB with next to no miles on it, optioned the way I would want it if I would have ordered one. Downside it barely fits in the garage and it’s like turning a boat in parking lots. Gas mileage is about 2.5 mpg off the Colorado. If the next house has a smaller garage or we sell the camper I’d probably go back to Midsize. I might get kicked for this but I do like the gladiator just with a diesel option.
On the hole two reviews this has gotten, no one mentioned screws. Only thing mentioned was 3m tape. 🤷♂️ I do like the door sill portion for sure. Linex for the rockers or as they call it “chip guarding” starts at $1500 FYI.
Looking for door sills for my truck and stumbled across these. Just curious if anyone has seen them or has them. https://www.autotrucktoys.com/p/bushwacker-chevy-silverado-trail-armor-rocker-panel-and-door-sill-protectors/
Yep, same issues. Previous owner must have loved to tailgate. I decided to have the entire bumper sanded down/repainted. The useless touch up pen got it though the salt belt winter. Once it’s repainted I will be getting the 3M protectant. Shop I’m using is charging $900-ish to redo bumper and the 3M protectant I’ve been quoted bout $250 to install. Could be worst, it could be a plastic bumper. 🙄
No regrets! I didn’t realize how rare the Standard bed was until I started looking. Even fits in the garage by 3 inches thankfully. On the the down side it can be a PITA to park in tight parking lots or crowded lots.
Crazypontiac03 replied to 14wntr's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI have a Westin Deflector on my 17’. I haven’t noticed any fluttering issues. One issue I and so many have run into is the screws that come with some of these aren’t long enough. Get a RANGE if you don’t want to go full tune to get rid of AFM.
Crazypontiac03 replied to Waterfowler41's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsThanks! Maybe I’m jumping the gun. This truck has not seen travel trailer yet. Ours is only 26ft. Now the Colorado I had previously wasn’t happy at all.
Crazypontiac03 replied to Waterfowler41's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsVery nice write up! Here’s a few questions I have; how difficult is it to adjust the shocks once they're installed as in changing to different settings? Also has anyone towed using this set-up yet? I’d love a little lift or atleast level but need some rake for hauling the camper around. If it was easily adjust this set-up would be prefect!
Yea...I owned it about one and half years, think it was in the shop more than anything. First shot of unloading that thing I took it. All my issues where suspension and cosmetic. Must have been built on a Sunday during the NFL playoffs.
