    2019 Silverado Custom Trail Boss
  1. Software Update 6/7/2019

    Does this update automatically or does the dealer need to do this?
  2. Mine wasn't stuck but today I was scrolling through and my air filter read 0 and there was no brake wear showing at all. This is the first time it's happened and I'm at 1800 miles!? I went to check my brake life because I'm at 79% front already?! So screwy.
  3. TrailBoss Driver's Seat Lift

    So far so good, my visibility is much better now and it's a more comfortable seating position. I kinda see what you're saying about the modifications, the safety pin is still set in place but it has not been tested hence why I only did it to my seat and not the passenger seat. I feel pretty confident that the amount of force to shear the bolts would be devastating regardless. Thanks for the input though.
  4. https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/223462-2019-silverado-backup-camera-problems/ Please file a complaint with GM and NHTSA, this seems like an ongoing issue with their backup cameras. Mine is constantly doing this, so frustrating. I also notified the attorney general's office since GM gave me a generic response. When someone gets hurt or killed they might respond with oh this is the first we've heard of it wow...frustrating!
  5. File a complaint with NHTSA and GM asap! Good luck man, that must have been scary.
  6. See my post and please file a complaint with GM and the NHTSA...it is a safety issue for sure, wait til it glitches out when backing up and you can't see anything at all. This is going to cause an injury or death if GM doesn't fix it. See if it is when you step on the brakes, that's what mine does. It went blank twice this evening while backing up! So frustrating. https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/223462-2019-silverado-backup-camera-problems/
  7. I worked with Randy over at Seating Solutions to get my driver's seat lifted up in the 2019 TrailBoss. I just felt the seat height was too low and my view over the dash wasn't that good. My wife also ran over a curb the first day I got it. After we talked back and forth about the seat and sent some pics, Randy developed a 1.5" lift kit. So I tried it out and it worked beautifully. The seat lift uses quality materials, it looks like factory, and I can see much better with a comfortable height. If interested in more pics of the install let me know. Hope this helps you all.
  8. Custom Trail Boss headlights

    Thanks for sharing this! Do you have any night/dark pictures?
  9. Custom Trail Boss Console Upgrade?

    I did but got "no image available"?
  10. Custom Trail Boss Console Upgrade?

    There is no image of this part number so do you know what piece it actually is? Is it the top w/ storage and you keep the rest as is (with the seat still in place)? any images of this particular part # for reference? thanks for sharing!
  11. I agree, mine are wearing fast according to the computer?! Makes no sense to me, I am not in stop and go traffic and don't brake hard. what model truck was that? I have the TrailBoss so is it the tires or something?
  12. Funny, I worked on a rescue for 15 years and about 10 years ago a UPS truck backed up and hit a bicyclist...no backup camera on that truck. It's not the only method to backing up but it's a great tool. Kinda like can we make phone calls from our house sure but now everyone has a cell phone, it has become the standard/norm.
  13. No, I wasn't under the impression that ALL American vehicles are built here but I did think the trucks were built here...my last truck was a 94 Ranger. It's amazes me that Tundra is built here yet the Chevy isn't...regardless it doesn't change the underlying lack of ingenuity and engineering reflected on "an American company"...sad actually, it's just the way the USA is going, not many hard working people left that actually care.
  14. Tailgate not dropping

    So my truck did this to me a couple times however the times it did it, I was parked on a hill that sloped slightly down - so the tailgate was higher than the hood if that makes sense? When I park it flat it never has an issue? Just a thought ..
  15. I appreciate all the input. The fact that my camera still is not functioning properly and the way GM has handled it (or not handled it) makes me even more concerned. I am on vacation but received a voicemail from GM that incriminated themselves by saying there is no current fix but if enough people complain GM might do something about it. Now I paraphrased the message but that's what he said. The next step is the attorney general's office. I suppose I keep taking it to the deal and file a claim under the lemon law and get out of this vehicle. I don't want to because I really like it but GM is not being very accommodating here. Also, I am utterly annoyed that my Trail Boss was built in Mexico. Nothing political here just I thought American trucks were built in America...frustrating
