  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Snow Plow Package

    Pretty sure snow plow prep package has HD front springs, HD cooling, Trani cooler, at least they use too.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Torque specs

    140 it is
  10. Best Undercoating?

    Eastwood supply. quality stuff, spray can, gallon , rubberized . Makes the frame, exposed metal look new, touch up is easy,
  11. Changing stock D5S bulb

    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.
  12. Regardless of the trucks mode of drive selected. The tire grip is everything. The factory tires today are garbage. Weather your running the 18" or 20" ,in snow or wet conditions factory tires are substandard. Besides really because the roads are wet these trucks call for a part time 4x4 . Seems lame.
  13. Have the gray seats in mine , I always put in the gray husky floor liners regardless of seat color. the gray compared to black floor liners hide the dirt much better.
  14. Rocker panel tore

    Totaled 45,000 worth of truck I doubt it. If your a mechanic. Mig the cracked metal prime and undercoat it and a THICK backing bracket should be a permanent fix. Then check the other mounts. I have owned more than a few Chevy's 1/2 tons every time I buy one ,install my plow I say to myself the metal on this truck is cheaper ,weaker than the last one. Lighter better mileage has to come from some where . Fix it yourself at least you will know its done right.
  15. Exhaust manifold leak usually at manifold to exhaust system joint, Start your truck , get your hand close to the joint, you will hear, and feel the leak if that's the source.
