  1. This guy had the same issue. He made some mods and retained the Stillen scoop, if you’re interested.
  2. My understanding is: In 2019, there were two 1500’s being sold. The 1500 based on the K2 platform 2014-2018 model year which received the “LD” designation and the 2019 New Body which was based on the new T1 platform. Similar to 2022. The “Limited” is based on the 2019-2021 design. While the 2022 (no Limited) is the re-fresh design. Newdude probably can correct any mistakes I made here.
  3. Sorry for the tangent. Might be a silly question but is achieving that bowtie-less grill just removing the bowtie? I would think it would leave clips or a backing bracket behind?
  4. It was mentioned awhile back in this thread the issues seems to have been mostly in the 2019/2020 models.
  5. Maybe something like this? Not sure if that would do for you. https://www.weathertech.com/chevrolet/2021/silverado-2500hd-3500hd/scratch-protection/silverado-cab-4/crew-cab/
  6. Yup, I second Corrosion Free. Put a light coat on the frame and the wax is fine. It’s clear so I can see underneath, no dip, no smell.
  7. I would keep crawling underneath and checking every once in a while to see if more wax is falling off. Respray the wax on the parts that wax has fallen off. I would also avoid pressure washing the undercarriage. You'll blast the wax right off.
  8. Sorry, my mistake. Didn't realize we are talking about diesel and not gasser. I will delete my question post if I can.
  9. Is there a real material difference between the two? Honest question, I have no idea. Just to clarify, not wanting a debate on the different oils. Just wanted to know ACDelco vs the Mobil1 used at the dealer. I'm good with a yes or no. UPDATE: Please ignore this post/question. I was mistaken.
  10. Is it fair to say people are generally having less issues with the 8 speed transmission now after the new Mobil 1 ATF blue label was used? Forum thread posts are usually (but not exclusively) posted when they are experiencing an issue. Would like to hear if people with the new ATF from factory have been happy with it thus far?
  11. A fun post. How many are going to pull the trigger when the 2022's come out or hang on to your current rig at bit longer? Is the larger infotainment and digital cluster screen enough for you to trade-in? Are you wanting to upgrade because you want that 10 speed? I always have the itch (but not necessarily the finances) to want to upgrade to the newest model. I like the larger infotainment screen. But I sort of wished GM had implemented some sort of Powerboost equivalent. Maybe that will never happen if they are releasing a full EV Silverado in 2025. So let's hear it.
  12. Is it too early to say seems like the leaks have ceased for the 1500 2021 model year?
  13. Sorry, I wasn’t clear about the boxed frame, knew it’s been there for awhile. GM mentioned they made changes to the chassis to allow them to fit the Max Trailering package. Apparently they weren’t able to do that before until the recent change. Their press release mentions this and I think some YT video as well. I’ll have to find it again. Does chassis mean frame here? If so, what were the changes to the frame? Edit: So here is another mention from Pickup Truck Plus SUV Talk, that GM had an issue with the chassis before that didn't allow for Max towing.
  14. Anyone know or have any insight on what chassis changes were made to allow for an increase of nearly 4000lbs for the ‘22 Duramax? Is it a change to the boxed frame?
  15. Column shifter still available with jump seat configuration.
  16. I’m liking the screens, glad it wasn’t like the Tahoe/Suburban design. I couldn’t care less for the console shifter. Looks a bit like the 2018+ Traverse console arrangement styling. I wonder if the 2500/3500 are going to get a similar interior update next model year.
  17. You can always call them and ask if there are any “promotional” pricing available. From my experience, there always is.
  18. Any longterm effects such as uneven wear or stress on the mounting points, if I leave it misaligned? Silly question but, is the misaligned bed still within spec (loose tolerances?)
  19. This is great info, thanks! I found the 2 TSB involving the ATF exchange. 18-NA-355 (Silverado/Sierra '15-'19 LD) and 19-NA-121 (Silverado/Sierra '19 New Body). Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like for 18-NA-355 it talks about using 2qts of the new fluid to flush out the cooler lines (Page 5, step 28). But for 19-NA-121, it says to only use shop air at 50psi to blow the old fluid out of the cooler lines (Page 5, step 25). No new ATF is used to flush the cooler lines for the '19 New Body. Am I reading that wrong? (Sorry if I'm hijacking the thread). Edit: I know we are talking about oz. in the cooler lines, so not a big deal. Just clarifying for my own knowledge. MC-10163890-9999.pdf MC-10174268-9999.pdf
  20. Does the flush really get all of the old ATF out of the transmission? How do they deal with the fluid inside the cooler lines?
  21. Did the symptoms (hesitation/shudder) show up one day and stay? Or did it show up here and there and then eventually became consistent? I had a few rumbles while cruising around 60km/h. Happened only a couple of times. 3rd time it happened I slowed down and it went away. But it doesn’t always happen…yet.
  22. Sorry for my lack of knowledge, trying to learn here. Outside of the bad batch, is the lifter issue related to AFM/DFM? Read lots of people who have suggested that. Is there something I can do to minimize it from happening (Install Range Tech)? Or is it purely just a random defect issue that happens to from time to time like any defect from any manufacture?
  23. Anyone here know if the bolts for the seats (that fasten it to the cab body) are one-time use? Getting a leather upgrade, shop telling me I need new bolts.
  24. Hopes dashed. Thanks for the info. I guess I’ll have to wait for symptoms to appear. Edit: The TSB says the cutoff/break point is March 1, 2019. If they only started using the new ATF in the summer at the factory, are people with build dates between March 2, 2019 to June-ish screwed? MC-10174268-9999.pdf
