  1. Replica 20"(+28) Snowflake FR95 from Factory Reproductions. https://factoryreproductions.com/shop/gmc/fr-95-2019-denali-replica-wheels/ 275/65/20 Nitto Ridge Grappler 2" readyLift.
  2. Great to deal with and shipped super fast. Really nice guy on top of that. @romclean1
  3. Is this stuff applicable for all trim models? I have an LTZ and don't want to replace apples for apples. But the backup lights are dismal. Thanks for the links!
  4. Yea, well, the Ram's have a WAY bigger problem with window leaks. That is THE hot topic in that community right now. Hopefully I'll get lucky with this one. lol
  5. Haha, well, I had a 2019 LTZ. Got pissed because the rear window kept leaking even after it was replaced a few times. Traded it for a 2019 F-150 Limited. Got bored with that and traded it for a 2020 Ram Limited. The Ram was a REALLY nice truck but just got bored. So, I'm back in a 2021 Silverado LTZ. 31 miles on it now and just dropped it off at the ceramic pro shop a buddy of mine owns.
  6. I'm back in a 2021 Silverado now...so I get to follow my own guide again. Lol. Thanks for doing the video!
  7. I had this on my '19 but it will probably fit other years...dunno. It's the black front bowtie. I had it on my truck for about 2 months. Perfect condition. Then the dreaded rear window leak caused me to ultimately get rid of the vehicle. I also have a new in box black lettering kit. Both are OEM GM. All or nothing...really don't want to separate. $110 shipped with Paypal fees included. Bowtie part number: 84133640 Letters/Emblems part number: 84300952
  8. Exactly. Got a 2019 F-150 Limited. I also drove the new Dodge 1500. REALLY nice truck but it's also the first year of the redesign just like the Silverado and I'm not going to sign up for that risk again. That, plus they weren't running any financing incentives. Ford had held the 0% for me. So, with the Dodge, I would have been financing a less expensive truck, for MORE...AND it would have had interest. So the less expensive truck would have been like 200 more/month give or take. We really liked the Ford(we like all 3 trucks) and it made the most sense. All in all I think we ended up financing about 68k on the Ford at 0% for 72 mo.
  9. Technically yes...but it could have been worse. Part of what tarnishes this truck's history for me is that the very week I got it, a 16 year old on her phone crashed into me. Just a fender bender but did 11k worth of damage. That being said, and given that it had a bad Carfax, I think the dealer overbid on my trade. When I delivered the truck they tried to waffle on the price but I had it in writing...too bad for them. So, it was an LTZ, with 6385 miles. Sticker was originally 58,750. I think I paid 53,950...something like that. Dealer said there are no book values out yet so they had to take a guess. They bid 43k on it. I owed about 50k on it and I also got a diminished value check in the mail for about 4k. So, I had 3k in negative equity. The new truck I bought stickered for 73.8k. So they had PLENTY of margin in that to knock a bit off(which they should do regardless of trade but you know how that goes). All in all, it was worth the 3k(depending on how you look at it) to my wife and I to be rid of something that has been nothing but a source of stress for the last almost 5 months. The car payment sucks anyway so may as well have something that actually sits in your driveway. Also, I got in on the 0% for truck month and that was nice timing too. One thing I learned...and this probably isn't new...but they offer trade in price based on what you are trading for. If you trade your truck in on a 10k car, they aren't making shit on that new car so they are going to make it up by giving you crap on your trade in value. You buy a car with a lot of margin and they give you a little more for your trade to give you that warm and fuzzy. But, I think 10k off what I paid for a used truck, w/ 6k miles AND a bad Carfax isn't terrible considering you can get a new one now for about 50k if you buy at the right time. If you wait a couple of months and the incentives start for them to get rid of the 19s to make room for the 20s, that price drops even more. You get into the territory where they can't offer you what you want for the trade because you are so close to new price at that point, no one will buy your used truck.
  10. So, I'm gonna get a bunch of shit for this. I LOVE/LOVED my Silverado LTZ but this was the last straw. Dealer had my truck 29 days. I picked it up yesterday morning. -My truck is white..white sealant all over the bed liner. Not sure how that would come off. -No sealant around the edge of the glass...a glass company did the rear window swap so they did a good job. -Interior, headliner and seats are covered with greasy finger prints. I found "extra" screws under the rear seat...no telling where those went. -The headliner is effectively ruined...which means they'd have to replace it...which means the windshield and lane departure camera has to come out....which would be another month and would create these same problems again. -It rained it's ass off last night even though they said it would remain inside. Saw a few drops on the inside. Nothing like it was, but it means we'd start the process all over. -The dealer gave me a loaner...which means lemon law is a really grey area. When I first got the truck, it sat at the dealer for 22 days because the front park assist camera was screwed up. They didn't know how to work on the truck as it was so new. So, unfortunately this beautiful 60k truck has been nothing but a headache and 2 dealers now have given me no indication that will change. I traded it in yesterday and will hope for the best with another manufacturer. I'll revisit Chevy in a couple of years when they work the bugs out a little more. Truth be told, the problems are what they are...it was mainly the level of service that broke the relationship for me. But hey...they did ask me to take care of them when the survey arrives. Lol. Queue the "good riddance" comments. Lol.
