    2020 Chevy Silverado 5.3 WT Crew Cab
  1. I finally got the RaceFace T2 pad. Fits pretty good, lots of adjustment in the straps for the varying thickness of the top of tailgate. I need to adjust the opening on the pad for the backup camera some more because the pad eats into some of the left side of my view. On the tailgate latch itself, the camera appears to be on the left side of the latch but I don't know what the other camera-looking thing is on the right side of the latch - does anyone know? I'm new to backup cams.
  2. @ChriZ71 Awesome getting 9 bikes on the truck! Here's mine with just 6 - and I thought that was a bunch!
  3. Thanks, now I can see. Glad to see the back-up camera works with the pad on - I was afraid that the camera was mounted too high on the tailgate to work with this pad. As for your concern with the bowing, I see what you mean. Aren't there adjustment straps on the top of the pad to deal with tailgates that bow in the center? Does that not fix the issue?
  4. @IdahoElevation Hey can you please re-post your photo? It's not showing up (or at least I can't view it). I'm curious because I've been looking at getting the RaceFace T2 as well and wanted to see how it fits. Thanks,
  5. Haven't lifted my Silverado yet, but I did install a lift & shims on my previous vehicle (Xterra) and from my understanding you install the smaller end/bladed end of the shim towards the front. That appears to be the way you have it shown in the photo so that SHOULD be the correct way from what I understand. I'm assuming you don't have any vibrations?
  6. @Trza & @redwngr & @Rob Mugs Thanks for your help. Turns out @redwngr was correct in that the riveted portion was just wrapping around the metal of the wheelwell & there are no holes in the metal that the rivets go through. Basically the metal is sandwhiched between the splash guard and another small piece of plastic on the inside of the wheelwell. I was able to remove the Torx screws and then slide the splash guard off with the rivets still attached. However, most people probably want to drill those rivets out because it's a very tight fit and I had to slide grit-cove
  7. @Rob Mugs Partly for looks & mostly for taking the truck off road and getting into situations where these will get torn off. Thanks for your input. Just kinda weird (to me at least) that they were riveted on to begin with.
  8. Howdy - trying to remove the splash guards front and rear and it looks like the rear wheel splash guards are attached with a mix of Torx bolts (blue in photo) & what I think are pop rivets (red in photo). From what I'm finding, I'm probably going to have to use a drill or something to remove the pop rivets. Is this the correct way to remove these pop rivets? Just kinda confused that I have to destroy the rivets to get the splash guard off versus just everything being Torx so I can take them on & off easily in the future. Sorry for such a goofy question - thanks.
  9. @Justin Vaughn I was really hoping to get a RaceFace T2 pad because they seem to have way more padding than other brands but I can't confirm that it will fit properly with the backup camera - since the camera and latch on the new Silverados/Sierras are located at the very top of the tailgate. But it looks like the Thule works fine with the backup camera so I think I'm going to go the same route as you - as I plan on leaving the pad on almost all of the time. Thanks.
  10. @RWTJR & @redwngr: Thanks for the info, much appreciated. Well I guess now I'm assuming they weren't sprayed over with the coverings still on. Most likely sprayed with coverings off and then coverings put back on afterward (kinda hard to tell from photo). Thanks, again.
  11. Hi, I am just re-pasting my question from another bedliner thread that didn't seem to be getting any traction - looks like this conversation is more active: I just purchased a 2020 WT and looking to get a spray in bedliner. Couple questions for you guys regarding the oval holes in the bed that are just above the wheel wells & cab-side of bed. Currently, my truck bed is bare and has the black plastic hole coverings are still on. 1. What are the purpose of the multiple 1" holes in the bed? For hooks? 2. Found some photos on this forum of spray-in bedliners. In on

Found some photos on this forum of spray-in bedliners. In one instance, looks like someone had the holes sprayed over. In the other, looks like they might've removed the plastic coverings and had sprayed too. Just curious as to why you would or wouldn't choose to do this. I think I'd want to
