  1. My Christmas present came in early. Got it installed with little effort. Advantage Hard Hat Tonneau cover. I've had the cheaper tri-fold vinyl cover on my previous truck. It worked, but it flopped in the wind at highway speeds and you could see the framework under the vinyl. IE: Not a smooth look on top. Once I found out this one that has a smooth look, as well as the hard polymer inserts for more security, I was on board. Cyber Monday came around and I couldn't pass up the discount. The rubber seals, really seal all the way around when the cover is installed and tightened down. No light comes in when it's closed up. It fits perfectly on the 6' 6" bed with a matching amount of rubber seal all the way around the perimeter. Here's a quick pic and I'll put more in my Black Trucks album. Patrick
  2. I finally got a chance to install my JLT oil separator and jump seat lid with storage. The jump seat lid install went a lot quicker, by unbolting the drivers seat and moving it to the side, vs just loosening the seat. https://www.jlttruecoldair.com/jlt-3-0-oil-separator-2019-chevy-silverado-1500-gmc-sierra-1500-5-3l-v8/
  3. I also just installed the JLT drivers side oil separator on mine recently. Very easy to install and one item that is highly recommended. https://www.jlttruecoldair.com/jlt-3-0-oil-separator-2019-chevy-silverado-1500-gmc-sierra-1500-5-3l-v8/ -Patrick-
  4. Those do look good. Mind sharing the brand, model and size with us?
  5. I finally got a break in the weather and installed my BD Trims tailgate letters. I think they really compliment the theme and turned out great. I highly recommend BD Trims.
  6. Ditto. Mine's high as well. So far, 117* has been the highest I've seen. Real world temp on that day was 102*. That's a huge swing IMO. Especially if the ECU is using that ambient temp info for fuel corrections, or AC regulation duties. I just figured it was a combination of grille mounted sensor, heat soak off the radiator and a black truck with black grille. I can see GM moving the sensor to the mirror. Never the less, I'm staying tuned...
  7. Perfect, thanks for the P/N. Love what you've done with yours. Looks great. -Patrick-
  8. Any info on this seal? Looks like a nice addition for keeping water out of the bed. Excellent pics. Thanks in advance. -Patrick-
  9. The top armrest does not. The bottom seat assembly should as it's standard IIRC on the LT trim. I haven't see the solution on the bottom seat assembly, but I'm betting it's gonna be spendy. -Patrick-
  10. As of today, no sir, nothing exists to bolt into the factory spot covered with the push in blank piece of plastic. Box with wires is all we get. The top smaller glove box mounting location might be an option, or the rarely used top dash cubby hole. A lot of us are in the same boat with no TBC from factory. -Patrick-
  11. I just received mine last night. It also took some time to arrive. 12 days total. It was not re-boxed, no internal packing material and literally looked like it was thrown off a moving truck more than a few times. I was stunned that the clips remained inside the box as they were just in a small ziplock bag at the bottom of the box. I'm betting this is S.O.P. with all GM Parts websites. IE: slap a shipping label on the GM box and let'er rip. Make sure you check for your clips if you ordered them at the same time. Especially if your box looks like this. One thing I noticed, the bottom anchor on the seat belt is left loose inside the box and with a lot of getting thrown around, it did cause a few scuffs and scratches on the front plastic. I guess I will live with it as I don't fore see this not happening again. It was pretty dusty and dirty from the almost destroyed box, but nothing a little simple green and compressed air couldn't handle. Watch out on the metal bracket, as it has sharp edges. Overall, it's typical GM parts QA packaging. I'm just thankful I'll have arm rest storage again. -Patrick-
  12. Here's the thread that gives all the info for replacing the non storage jump seat arm rest top, to the one with storage. Skipping ahead to page 7, Jeffed's post on June 13th, you'll see the part number for the armrest. (Top seat portion) 84647286 Then on the next page, you will find the clip part number, which you need 5 each of. 11549266 Big time thanks to Jeffed for posting his results, along with the PDF document he posted on June 13th as well. IMO, this is quiet possibly the most epic "must do" mod on Custom and Trailboss Custom's, short of the exhaust mods. Pic that I attached is from that thread. Hope this helps. -Patrick-
  13. The looks of the nose on the Custom is what first drew my attention. All from the commercials when they first started running them. I too am a big fan of the embossed CHEVROLET in the grille vs the obnoxious to me monstrous bow tie emblem in the center. The tailgate with no bow tie and dual exhaust tips sealed the deal. The factory 20's were icing on the cake. I am a big fan of the body colored "no chrome" look on all of my vehicles. So the small black grille bow tie and the rest of the emblems were my first mods. I agree on the center console issue. Thankfully it's an easy fix and there's a very good thread about it located here. And thanks go to Jeffed for posting the info and this pdf document. https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=111339 Cliff notes: Black armrest with storage P/N: 8464-7286 (also known as 84647286 on most GM Parts websites) 5 each Clips needed for installation P/N: 1154-9266 (also known as 11549266) I'll be doing this as soon as the parts arrive. I've had two previous "power everything" Silverado's in the past and to be honest, not having the steering wheel controls and all of the other bells and whistles really doesn't bother me. This time around, black on black with the towing package and v8 were at the top of my list. IMO, Chevy nailed the look with the Custom. Especially with the mid year discounts. I suspect they will be even better towards the end of the year. Only downside to waiting is your color options once the 2019 inventory is gone. All of my local dealerships that had the ones I was looking at are now sold. I jumped on board back in June.
  14. If you mean this OEM trailer brake controller? Unfortunately no. GM does not sell it. You have to go with an aftermarket box style controller.
