    2016 Silverado
  1. Wow that's a pretty cheap setup. $20 for the bluetooth connection and android app is hard to beat. I'm just looking for something that will read and clear codes if needed. Curious to what I would be gaining with the handheld scanner I linked above for twice the money.
  2. I'm looking to buy a reasonably priced car scanner to get fault codes and the such from my 2016 Silverado. I'm not doing this professionally so don't see the need in speeding thousands or hundreds on a scanner. I did find one on amazon for about $50 and by the reviews it seems pretty decent for my needs - https://www.amazon.com/ANCEL-AD310-Enhanced-Universal-Diagnostic/dp/B01G5EA74I/ What are your thoughts or recommendations?
  3. $80, Holy Moly! You can get these lights for $10 on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/LUX-Performance-DBLXSR8C-Straight-Single/dp/B075JQCGMR/
  4. any recommended cleaner?!
  5. If you are looking for more light and something that works with your brakes and turn signal check out the Redline light bar. Provides a lot more light and so far has held up nicely. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HUJW75O/ I also bought a trailer adapter so I didn't have to splice into any wires and if the bar does go out a terrible life I just take it off and everything is back to stock like the day I bought the truck.
  6. I recently bought a set of 20" aluminum GM snowflakes wheels and am looking for the best cleaner to keep these wheels looking new for as long as possible. Any suggestions?
  7. Commenting for my own record as I'm wanting to get something a bit more aggressive looking myself but something that performs well on the highway and in rain. Liking the looks of the Cooper AT3's and the Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires!
  8. You guys are all right. The sellers gets the wheels from a shop that does a lot of customizing for some local GM dealerships. He had a bunch of GMC and Chevy center caps. One or two wheels already had the Chevy caps the others he just popped out the GMC and put in the new Chevy centers. Sunday I was looking around the interwebs and came across this little device that costs less than $20 to my door. Was delivered today and now all my wheels are programmed into the truck. https://www.amazon.com/dp/product/B06XVR85N7
  9. I agree. If you need a special tool to take off your oil filter then you're putting it on way to tight. I rub a thin layer of new oil on the rubber seal then hand tighten nice and snug. A little muscle is all that's needed to remove it when it's time to change it again.
  10. Well the wheels and tires look brand new. A couple still had green stickers on the sidewall and the tires where had nubs all over them. I offered $1500 for everything but he said he couldn't do that, then he offered $1600 and I took them. I actually stuck around for a few minutes and he's got a good sized garage full of stock wheels and tires. He gets them from another place that does upgrades for dealers then turns around and sells them on craigslist. Went home and put them on. I'd still like to get a set of more aggressive looking tires but I'll wait until these tires need to be replaced. Now I just gotta take the truck in to the dealer to have the tire sensors re-learned.
  11. Thanks. The ad sounds like it's a business doing upgrades on stock trucks. Then when I put in the address in Google Maps it looks like just some dudes house out of town. Really? I can only find original 20" snowflake wheels for about $400 each new. That alone is $1600 for a set of four. So for $75 more I'm also getting the sensors, tires, lug nuts and center caps. Do you know of a better place to buy them?
  12. I'm looking at buying new 20" chevy wheels and came across this craigslist ad that seems like a really good deal for the wheels, center cap, lug nuts, tire sensors and tires. My concern is it's either a scam or maybe the wheels aren't what they seem? Is there anything I should look for if I go see them?
  13. I just tried to place an order with Adam's using the 10% off GMT coupon code but it says it's invalid. Do GM-Trucks.com members no longer get a discount?
  14. I keep my truck manual and related literature in there to keep the glove box clean and free for more handy stuff.
