  1. as long as you know what you are getting. If it were me, I would have opted for them to use my tranny since they didnt have one ready to go, but to each their own.
  2. because genius that's the only thing they do. You might gather that the 4l60E is probably the most common one they do, so much so they had 1 core, which if that's all they do, I would wonder why only 1, but whatever. If your business is transmissions, then you have some built, its the way it is, or are you the guy who goes to a tire shop and they have to order your tires, or perhaps when you get an oil change you tell them what oil you want then go back in a few days so they can get it? I am not really sure why you asked me this question, but whatever. It would seem to me that if they were going to rebuild a tranny, they would remove the one from your truck, rebuild that one and then put it back in, not use a core from someone else that is not rebuilt yet, but again whatever. I could understand them putting another core in from an already rebuilt one though.
  3. I am glad that you are in line to get your truck up and moving again. I am just curious why this shop didnt have a rebuilt tranny already if thats all they do. The 3 year unlimited is pretty standard here for a rebuilt tranny. You can get a rebuilt w/ new torque converter w/ a 1 year unlimited and your core deposit for about 800 bucks, but the upgraded tranny w/ the 3 year is the way to go.
  4. The thing is there is more then one year bed for your truck. That style ran for a few, so not sure why a year is going to make a difference to them. If the bed they put on was not properly done with primer, paint etc, and it is in a reasonable amount of time this occurred, I am sure they will fix it after trying to give you a run around.
  5. it sounds like you have many issues ongoing. Making sure all of your grounds are hooked, is the first thing. I am not sure of the compatibility of your bcm and ecm with a 2000, vs 2005. It may be a matter of just taking it to your local gm dealership and getting things reprogrammed. I am not sure what frame up means, but if that means you got a frame, and a cab........... from a 2005, then what exactly did you take from the 2000?
  6. gyour tranny probably is bad. You can get a bottle of that anti tranny slip stuff and see if it helps you a bit. If it does there is a good chance your tranny is shot. If it were a wire problem outside the tranny I doubt it would shift in any gears. Lucas transmission fix is supposed to be a good product.
  7. Only suggestion is get the largest alternator you can get for your truck.
  8. It could be a shift solenoid for sure. Only way to find out is to either replace it or have it replaced. There are plenty of Youtube videos for your truck that walk you through that process if you want to attempt to do it yourself.
  9. Did the dealership remove the amp and new radio your son put in and then try to reprogram the fob? How proficient at wiring in all of those things is your son? I don't think you will get much help here with the issue you are describing sorry to say.. If a certified GM dealerships service department turned your truck away, something has to be terribly wrong or not obvious. I am surprised they didnt recommend changing the BCM. I have seen people do damage (mostly on older cars) by wrongfully hooking aftermarket radios up. Dead shorts, parasitic draws, fried wires etc. The problem with trying to trouble shoot what someone else has done is not knowing where to start.. Most people will try to throw the most obvious things at the problem, but when that doesnt work, its onto the next item. Your problem could be nothing more then a frayed wire that is losing contact, but its extremely difficult to trace down.
  10. For the most part the simple answer is Yes. Pay attention to the year truck you have vs what you are looking at. Just because the tranny bolts up, doesnt mean its going to work without doing major mods, such as harness conversions etc.
  11. Cheyenne was only a base model truck C and K. C being a base 2 wheel, and K being a 4x4. There is talk about bringing the name back to the states, but really its just a base silverado so really not any point to it, other then the emblem name which you can get online if you are into that sort of thing. If you want to see this bad ass new, check out this
  12. okay, well then it could have been for a plow, winch or any number of items that would require a heavy ground, since it is cut, it serves no purpose now.
  13. That would be the cheaper route to go for sure, as long as you get someone who knows what they are doing and can if need be reprogram your bcm you would be fine. Especially as long as you keep it away from the guy with the hammer and screw driver.
  14. you should have made one of those old timey "Like a Rock" video, like GM used to do back in the day. Check out this one where the Chevy is pulling like 5 trailers of logs.
