  1. Bump. Please somebody make me an offer on this before I take it to the scrap yard and turn it into beer cans.
  2. A buddy of mine was going to buy it and put it on his 2014 Sliverado. We measured it and were pretty sure it would fit but he ran into some financial trouble and didn't follow thru. I called Diamondback and they said that the part numbers were different BUT "only by one number" and that it would likely fit but there might be some little difference around the tailgate cap - they just wouldn't "guarantee" the fit. Tnsierra, if you want it and are willing to drive a couple hours, I'll take $600. Hazard is about 2.5 to 3 hours from Knoxville depending on where you live exactly. I'm willing to meet you in London, KY if that helps - that'll knock at least an hour off your trip. I can strap it all to a trailer and pad it with some blankets so it doesn't get dinged or scratched. Send me your email address to [email protected] or text me at 606-438-6610 and I can send some pics of it. There isn't a scratch or ding on it that I'm aware of. Many thanks!
  3. Unfortunately, I still have this. It is now residing in my basement in Hazard, KY. I travel frequently between Hazard and Lexington. I can show it or deliver it anywhere along the way or within a reasonable distance otherwise. I will make someone the deal of a lifetime on it. Please, someone make me an offer.
  4. I need this gone ASAP, somebody please make me an offer. Thanks!

  6. I have a Diamondback LT bed cover in excellent condition, no scratches or dents that I took off my 2011 Silverado Crew Cab. I loved this cover and believe it's the best one on the market. I'm asking $800 OBO and it must be picked up in Lexington, KY on Saturdays or Sundays only. I'm not available during the week. I will post pics this weekend but if you'd like more information, please email me at [email protected] or text me at 606-438-6610. Thanks!
  7. I have a Range AFM Disabler that I removed from my 2011 Silverado with 5.3L engine. Works perfectly. Even have original box that it came in. I'm asking $100 OBO and I'll cover shipping. You can text me at 606-438-6610 or email me at [email protected] if you need more info. I prefer payment via paypal but I'm flexible. I can post or send pics if you'd like. It looks brand new.
  8. Thanks!! That's interesting. I was hoping it was for something like that and had not rattled loose. Does it matter that my truck has the built-in brake controller already? I assume not. Thanks again!
  9. Please look to the left of center in the picture. You can see the crimped on spade end of a red/black wire. Can anyone tell me what this wire is? I have never noticed it hanging there until late last night while I was checking my oil. It's hanging just below the brake reservoir. No check engine lights are on. Truck is a 2011 Silverado Crew Cab with 5.3L engine. Thanks everyone!!!
  10. I have a range unit installed on my truck. Have had it on there now for at least 3 years. I would not own my truck without it.
  11. I have a 2011 Silverado 4x4 Crew Cab 5.3L with 6 speed trans. I am coming up on the 50K mile mark. I have not done a tremendous amount of towing but we're coming up on riding season soon enough and I am planning on towing my 16 ft tandem axle trailer loaded with two ATVs and gear a LOT. I also have a 20 ft pontoon that I need to pull out of the water and tow it to the boat dealer for servicing and cleaning. So, I'm getting a bit nervous about the transmission fluid that's in there. I've changed it plenty of times before on other trucks and I'm a decent enough mechanic but, frankly, I don't have time to do it myself and since you have to move the exhaust to get to it and it looks like a total PITA without a lift (which I don't have) then I'm more inclined to just farm it out to someone. My options here where I live, however, are very limited. At the moment, I do not know of a local mechanic that I trust to do the job correctly. The only alternative is the dealership. I use the dealership for oil changes (again, did them myself for over 20 years but finally succumbed to the fact that I can get have it done cheaper than I can do it myself AND like before I just don't have the time). I have pondered the thought of purchasing one of those oil suction machines and sucking the old fluid out and replacing it with new - and doing it a couple of times to flush out as much old fluid as possible. I realize that I won't be changing the filter that way and that concerns me, even if it is just a screen. Do dealerships actually drop the pan and replace the screen or do most of them do flushes (which I have heard nothing but bad things about)? Do I need to drive a few hours away to a bigger town and find a real transmission shop? What do you folks do? Thanks! Edit: Just called the local dealership and they only do flushes and they're around $250. Ouch.
  12. So far, so good. No issues at all. I can't speak to gas mileage since I replaced my tires within a couple weeks of installing the blocks. I didn't notice any significant change in mileage during the couple of weeks between just the lift and new tires but the new tires I bought (General Grabber II's) killed my mileage. Now, I'm getting around 15 mpg but I have the Range module that shuts off the AFM, too.
  13. http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/Trail-Blazers-closed-in-Lexington-customers-file-complaints-249488871.html I live about two hours from Lexington and the retail store called Trailblazers. I have been there many, many times. I actually went to the truckaddons website and was shocked that it was still up and running. Please spread the word and be REALLY wary of ordering from these folks. Neil
  14. I've now put over 3000 miles on my Silverado with the Range unit installed. My oil burning issue has stopped. I was burning at least a quart every 3K miles and now I've got over 2K since the last oil change with no perceptible movement on the dipstick. Add the that the fact that my truck now drives so much better and I am a VERY satisfied customer. If anybody is on the fence about buying the Range module, please do yourself a favor and just buy it.
