  1. So in 2016 they added the z71 badge on the door as an option. I've never seen that badge on a 14 or 15 factory of this gen but 16 is the first year I've seen it. They are always found on midnight editions and have to be a z71 suspension option to even have it, IE: you can't get the Z71 badges if you have a truck without the Z71 package itself. I've seen some white and I think some silver ones that have it but they are almost always on black trucks. You can option the door badge for a cool 150$ when building your truck online 'back in the day' and select in in lew of the Z71 bed sticker. The big z71 door badge on mine is only a chevy thing as well, not on GMCs at all. Any on the fender have a different design and are only on sierras, no chevy trucks. You could always get the Z71 bedside sticker delete or get the big door badge instead otherwise Z71 optioned trucks came with a bedside sticker standard. Also the midnight editions like mine the door badge is a part of the midnight edition package, and no others as far as I'm aware. I've seen knockoff badges on ebay and Amazon before, they are 8 inches wide IIRC... In 2018 they stopped this badge as an option as the 2019 was the new(and current T1 platform) and the 2019 K2 platforms (like ours) where 'Legacy' models which were relegated to basically WT or LS trims clearing out GMs parts bin of all the old stuff before retooling th factories to make the new generation. Hope this essay of a response answered your question lol [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  2. Welcome to the forum and it looks great the way it sits, so there's that! I have a 16 midnight and it is stock too as I haven't decided on my mods list yet either. But anyway welcome and I hope you enjoy checking out all the build threads for some great ideas on where to go from here Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  3. I'd say it's not a big deal. Most people won't look at what it had factory unless it doesn't make sense for it to LTZ or HC with cloth seats cause somebody wanted to swap them to a new WT they bought or something. If it's an LT or something and you color matched I'm sure nobody would notice because it's a factory option anyway for that trim plus most people like the color match bumpers as had already been said above. I'd say your clear as long as there's no significant body damage Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  4. 1- I have a chevy, not a GMC..... 2- I already have an illuminated bowtie.... 3- I'm following this cause of how amazing this looks and the workman ship you've put into it so far. Keep it up man, that looks AMAZING Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Would it be possible to get the email for the design? Treatstock I used before to 3d print things its like an open contracting platform for things like that. I'd love to have mine made from metal but some things just cost more than their worth Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  6. There isn't anything larger than the factory bezel. I have a s20+ and a 2016.i feel your pain Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  7. This is kinda funny to see as how I've tracked every drop, and every penny for the last 6 years and 3 vehicles I've owned. My truck is also 1-2mpg higher and I run factory 265/65/R18 but K02s and a range afm disabler in Denver. Since the range disabler has been installed I've gotten about 30miles to the tank less than before. When I bought my truck in September 2019 it got 400 miles to a tank with 4 gallons to spare. With the all terrains, range AFM tool, and heater in the winter time like now, I will just barely break 340 per tank. Unfortunately it all adds up but I'm savoring what good mileage I have now before I throw icon suspension, bed rack at 35s on it. Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  8. if i have a second after work in the shop tomorrow ill break out my tools and see if i can pop those off without breaking em and get you the part numbers. i have a 16 midnight CC that has the rubber finished black ones.
  9. I'll have to break out my master tech's fluke meter and alldata information on this lol totally didn't think of it before. I think I should get a dash cam while I'm at it *duh* Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  10. @Ravenkeeper you'd be right! Lol Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  11. @Frankielozano214 there's another thread I just subbed to where someone is trying to make a tap in for a dash cam from the overhead console. Figured I'd say something about it since both threads and topics were mentioned the same day Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  12. Subbed as I'd like to do the same thing Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  13. That's really a good look! Wanted a leather shifter for myself and I just got a period correct denali shifter off ebay as I'm not a fan of chrome but I had no idea you could pop the switches out! This will come in handy big time because my denali shifter buttons have always felt really soft compared to my factory shifter. Great content and looks awesome! +1[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  14. It's been a minute since I've posted here but I've definitely been lurking. Unfortunately my first post back isn't anything fun, but maintenance. Last night I finished my thermostat after working in the shop. Took about 15 minutes with 2 sockets, my ratchet and a pair of pliers. Super easy, and with a gallon of coolant it cost around 50 dollars total. Not bad for 91K out of the first unit. ( Part number if interested is 12674639 ) Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
  15. That looks fantastic! I want to do some aux lights here soon but I'd really love to get the aux switch panel with custom made piano keys for it but I have no idea if anybody makes them for our trucks. Looks great though, and since I have a factory trailer brake I think I'd relocate it someplace and do a similar setup to what you've done. Looks great! Be sure to post some pics when you install the lights my guy Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk
