  1. Thank you very much. I plan on fixing it, but financially it will be at least a year or two. I am just trying to keep it looking decent for the time being. It seems like the combo of cleaning it up with the navy jelly and then the Boesheild may get me where I want to be for now.
  2. Thank you very much. I will pick some up and give it a go. I know it's not going to be fixed, but if I can get a couple years before the rust can't be covered by the flares, that would be great.
  3. I know the rear fender rust has been covered many times, but couldn’t find an answer (if there is one) for this. I have a 2011 Sierra with the fender cancer. I purchased fender flares for temporary (or longer) cover. I know once it starts it will continue to spread. I am just wondering if sanding, filling, rust inhibitor and primer would do much of anything to at least slow it down until the inevitable rust appearing above the flares? At that point I will get it fixed the right way, just can’t do it now. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Nevermind...drilled the bolts out and did bolt/lock washer.
  5. I had to replace my power steering cooler. Took the plastic cover off under the hood and then the 4 bolts that attach to top. All 4 bolts snapped off. I am going to drill them out and replace them, but I can’t seem to find what size they are and I only have 4 heads. Anybody know or is there a better way than drilling them out? 2011 Sierra SL 1500
  6. I need to replace the tires on my 2011 1500 SL 4x4 club cab. I know the tpms is set at 40 psi. I was looking at load range C. I don’t haul a ton, just home improvement and maybe a smaller trailer. I got got an offer that sounds very good on these: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Pirelli&tireModel=Scorpion+All+Terrain+Plus&partnum=67TR7SATP I can get them just under $130. They are SL (I assume that is standard load). The max inflation is 44 psi. Opinions? Thanks
  7. Thank you. I will try that first. Is the ECM a big fix?
  8. I have a 2011 Sierra with a 4.8L. The CEL came on this am showing P0056, P0161 and P0060. They are seem to go back to the HO2S Heater Control Circuit (Bank 2 Sensor 2) and heater circuit malfunction. I am going to get under and check the wires and such first. Any advise or other things I should be looking for? Thanks.
  9. I have my 2011 SL 4x4 and it has a couple bubbles under the paint above the rear wheels. Very tiny at this point. I was thinking about sanding them down and trying to fix them before they get out of hand. I figure my paint matching won’t be wonderful so I was looking at putting smallish fender flairs on to cover it up. Has anybody done this and what flairs look the best on our trucks? Pictures would be awesome. Thanks.
  10. After all the advice and research, that is definitely the way I will go. I agree that going more than I need will just be overkill. Thanks!!
  11. Thanks. I am very happy we made the move. I would have been stuck on our lane at least 2-3 times with my old truck. Thanks for info on the tires. The ones on here will get me through the winter and then I think we are going to go with Cooper AT3 LT in load range C. They have E but I think the C is plenty for my use.
  12. I got the build sheet. It does seem I have a mutt. Very interesting. 3GTP2UEA3BG378622 - 2011 Sierra - Tim.PDF
  13. Same here. I emailed them and got my build sheet in less than a day. Was very interesting.
  14. Yeah, she does seem to be a bit of a mutt. The emblems say Nevada Edition. The tire guy seems to think it is a beefed up suspension. I agree on the color, once I saw it I had to make it mine.
