  1. Plow plates

    This is My 17 , Its the same Fisher set up that was on my 99 silverado, I keep updating , and painting, Mind you I don't do a lot of Plowing anymore , But at one time my account's numbered 30-35 residential . This last refit from my 11 to the 17, Side-plates were the same. just needed 1 wiring harness. I do the installs. I know mine does hang lower, but for me that does not justify the cost of new. Now if a v-plow would work on the 1/2 ton short box regular cab, that I would consider.
  2. Not sure what the 18's are using ,but my 17, I installed the Morimoto D5s 35w 5500k . I think I purchased on sale about 275$. As far as any big difference for me in brightness, distance, or quality of light.. NO-WAY worth the cash, my opinion. gota be a better choice out there.
  3. Hello All , Looking for some opinions before I purchase. I have a 17 Silverado Shortbox , with the 18" wheel option, I live in the Northeast, I have a 7 1/2 Fisher plow, I don't do a lot of plowing , but I do a bit. My truck came with the Goodyear Wranglers , and I have always thought they were crap. I'm looking for a tire , a bit aggressive , M/S , I know its a pretty vague question but what's holding up for mileage? Traction in mud and snow and the ok on the pocket . Many thanks
  4. Spark plugs

    Ya leave them plugs in 60-75k . then try to get them out. good luck with that. Lets see how much does a set of plugs cost compared to pulling the heads off, valve job, and machine work . Thinks me will service my truck every 25-30 k or so.
  5. Oil pressure 6.2

    Tailor the truck to your needs, dial the engine to your needs. If your desert driving,towing uphill 0w-20 ,Just ain't gonna give you the protection your looking for. Millage Really Towing? 5w-30 for a starting point. . Any of these trucks showing pics of there Oil Pressure Gauges thinking they are accurate gauges , crazy ,not much better than old school dummy light.
  6. Picked up the Morimotos for my 17, one went bad, they replaced no problem. Light output. My opinion not worth the cash! Little better yes, Headlight system compared to my 11, terrible.Has me guessing at night. tried adjusting, not much difference. . You will learn to live with it.
  7. Last good z71

    My 17 sucks, my 11 was ok, my 05 was a great truck, my 99 was ok. my 88 was good. my 79 was a beast ! All Z71 except the 79, all short box regular cabs, most 350's till 5.3.
  8. Snow Plow Package

    Pretty sure snow plow prep package has HD front springs, HD cooling, Trani cooler, at least they use too.
  9. Back in the day, 70s-80s GM had a rear end additive, for posi-traction . The additive was a lube . As I remember couldn't have been more than 3 oz. bottle. Stopped the wheel lock up around turns, Just a thought
  10. Chrome Mustache Removal

    Took mine off cut it to install my Fisher plow set up. Only thing different I did was take the bottom part of the dam. Cut the mounting ear off drill new holes and mount on the bumper wings.
  11. Just my idea, and your truck looks great ! Light bar is my next mod. But thinking much rather remove the shutters keeping them intact. place the light bar behind the grill ,without cutting it. Fab brackets . Keeping the shutter motor in place so no codes. Just my idea.
  12. Took mine to the dealer for a headlight housing replacement. Came home with more damage than you can believe! Even had a screw driver under the hood , closed mind you ,so the hood was sprung!!! Hell those Bums cant fix there underwear. Never again
  13. Torque specs

    140 it is
  14. Best Undercoating?

    Eastwood supply. quality stuff, spray can, gallon , rubberized . Makes the frame, exposed metal look new, touch up is easy,
  15. Send them back before you install them , no improvement with the high beams, and not worth the cost for the low !. bad design by GM.
