  1. How solvable are dash rattles

    I have a 2012 Silverado crew cab. Recently, I have noticed a rattle coming from the passenger side of the truck. It almost sounds like it could be in the dash, or even under the floor board. Sounds like a screw head has popped off, and is rolling around upon acceleration. I have tried turning the a/c off to see if that was a source, still there. I have checked the heat shield under the truck, as that is right where the exhaust is. Everything seems tight. I took everything out of both glove boxes, pulled the top one out altogether, still there. I completely understand the frustration techs feel when customers complain about rattles, etc. I just wonder if this is something a tech could track down. I have not been to the dealer yet. I may ask when I drop off for the next oil change.
  2. I need one of these in my life! And my truck... Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  3. New Tahoe

    Very nice! My brother is looking to replace his worn out Trailblazer with a Tahoe soon...
  4. Why don't we have more dealerships like...

    I didn't realize Nickey Chevrolet was still around! Cool! I really just want a time machine to go back in time with some cash... I'll take a Yenko Nova and Baldwin Motion Camaro to go please Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  5. the ones we had in the 60's? Like Yenko Cheverolet, Baldwin-Motion.. the kind who took great cars and made them even better. Here, just ignore that set of headers in the trunk and 4:10 gears we slipped in....I mean we have great tuners now like Lingenfelter, Hennessey and others, but would be neat to see more dealer specialties
  6. Oh crap! That's where I went wrong!!! Lol Sent from my VS980 4G using Tapatalk

  8. Tire Dressing

    Another vote for Adam's Tire Shine.. usually lasts 2-3 weeks, even with rain. I apply it with a sponge... looks great, doesn't sling all over the truck.
  9. Same Old Me, New Home

    In November 2008, my girlfriend who I had been dating for almost a year got a job in Knoxville. A month later, when my lease was up in my apartment, packed everything up in a UHaul and my truck, and moved from Tampa to Knoxville. Left a good steady job I had been at for 10 years, had one interview lined up in Knoxville. Flash forward to today, got that job, married that girl, got a better job, bought a house, and we have a 3 year old girl. Still go back to visit family, but would never consider moving back. One of my best decisions made..

  11. Truck is about due for some front pads, looking to upgrade. I had Power Slots slotted rotors on my old F150, they worked really nice and the cost wasn't outrageous. What do you guys have as far as front brakes? Looking to upgrade both the pad and rotor over stock. Mixed driving, looking to purchase a popup in the near future. Thinking about going with slotted rotors and either EBC or Hawk pads. Tell me what you have and how you like/dislike it.
  12. Hello everyone... Looking to upgrade the speakers in my 2012 Crew cab. In my previous truck, 2002 F15, I went with an Alpine head unit, ID 10" sub and Alpine amp to drive it, with upgraded front door speakers. Not looking to go that far with this truck (yet), just curious to upgrade the front and rear door speaker. Do you really get much better sound by upgrading just the speakers, or is more involved? I had a 2000 Trans Am with the Monsoon system, and I seemed to recall there being an issue with the OHM rating of the speakers. Is that an issue with this truck? Have you upgraded just speakers and have you been satisfied? if yes,what brand did you go with? Thanks Wayne
  13. Hail Repair

    I was in St.Louis in April visiting my bil. Got hit with a hail storm the morning I was leaving. Total devastation to my hood, roof and passenger side of my truck. I get home, call the insurance (Jake, with State Farm) take it in for an estimate. Drop truck off two weeks later, when the body shops paintless dent repair guy was back, they had it looking brand new in a week. They replaced the hood and did the pdr on all other panels. Looks good as new. I have a $500 deductible, but my rates have not gone up. It's an act of God..
  14. I had Borla on my last two vehicles. Will probably put the GMPP Touring muffler on this truck soon as well. They are great to deal with
