  1. Why not look into a junkyard or someplace similar and look for a bumper that came with fog lights? You’ll still have to wire the lights you choose but at least you would have the holes already cut out and in the stock location as well.
  2. It depends on what you order from them. As mentioned earlier the floor mates are oversized and I believe they ship from the east coast somewhere. So for me living in Washington the total cost including shipping is more than what I would pay at the dealership. However when I bought the “factory” sub from them it was cheaper with shipping than going to the dealership.
  3. I have the Gator quad fold installed on my truck. I’ll try to get some pictures of it tomorrow. I’m in the east side of Washington state so it doesn’t rain as much as in Seattle. The only leaking I have is around the tailgate when I take it through the car wash. Today it has been raining however and I am moving into a new house. All the boxes where still nice and dry and there wasn’t any noticeable leaking anywhere. According to the specs it should hold up to 300lbs evenly distributed. I’ve had the cover installed since March of this year.
  4. I understand your concern, long story short, my brother drove my dads truck and rear ended someone. Water pump and other things had to be replaced. We had nothing but problems with that truck afterwards. They got rid of that truck after constant repairs. Recently my dad was sideswiped, almost like an angled t-bone really. Tweaked the frame and of course body damage. After it was repaired he had no problems with it and said it rode better. Honestly if comes down to the luck sometimes. Just makes sure you use a highly rated repair shop that is recommended by the insurance company, eith
  5. How long did it take you to install? I eventually want to do this but I have to take time off of work for the down time my truck would be out of commission. I want to see how long i would need to take off.
  6. I think what they are saying is that if you intend to lift your truck and buy this kit then yes the steel springs are 1:1 swap with the composite springs. However if you buy the kit just for the springs and not lift your truck they will not work since they are meant to used in conjunction with the lift kit. This is because they were made with the 2in of lift in mind and not stock height.
  7. In my opinion you’ll be fine. I have the 5.3L 6spd Custom Tail Boss and it pulled our trailer without any issues. Granted we took it camping the first time this Memorial Day weekend and only went an hour and a half away. Our trailer is a 2021 Starcraft Autumn Ridge that has a GVWR of 6500lbs. It went up hills with barely any struggles. I would recommend looking into a Weight Distribution Hitch, it makes a huge difference. I could be wrong but I think your trailer might be light enough where it doesn’t need one but I think it’s close to the cut off limit. What you’re looking into getting your t
  8. I have been debating on doing the swap to tow mirrors. We just bought a travel trailer to go camping, getting too old to sleep on an air mattress or ground. I have been going back and forth because I know I should get them but I hate the "dumbo ears" look. For now I am going with some snap on extensions since they are the cheapest option right now and I will get them before Memorial Day weekend for our maiden voyage in the trailer. I was also thinking, once the truck is payed off, that I could somehow retrofit some K2 tow mirror instead. I know there would be body work on the doors
  9. Here is one more from further back on the passenger side. I am going to get black Z71 emblems soon also.
  10. Ok, so I had bought the gloss black emblems that say Silverado and Custom for my Custom Trail Boss. The set that I bought had the emblems for the tailgate, which I put on, but they also have the fender emblems that say Silverado. I am gonna keep my Z71 fender emblems where they are at. I am considering putting the Silverado emblems on my door. Since doors don't come with any emblems on them I am seeking on opinions on placement. I know I want them down low around where the door guards (I think that is what they were called) used to be on the older models. Here are a couple of pictures on where
  11. I have a 2020 Custom Tail Boss with the 6 speed transmission. I have noticed the shifting in my truck every once in a while too. I think it might be a combination of things like driving style, shift points and gearing. When I am just cruising and let my truck slow down naturally, not using the brake, but maintain a little bit of throttle input it downshifts when it goes below 35 mph. I haven’t noticed my Tach bouncing around but then again I don’t really pay attention to it much.
  12. Looks great. I would recommend getting the stake pocket overs, cleans up the look in my opinion.
  13. I totally agree with you. If I wouldn’t take a loss on my truck, I would trade it for one that doesn’t have AFM/DFM.
  14. It will be select 2021 trim levels that will get the delete. You would also get a $50 credit. Mileage wouldn’t suffer that much in my opinion, Chevy even said the hit would be a 1MPG difference.
