  1. Trading the ole girl in and that means time to strip down and return to stock Kooks Headers and Y-Pipe installed for a little less than a year, about 4500 miles. Selling the lifted pickup for a tahoe, something to do with kids or something, idk it's the wife's idea Located Long Island NY Headers New: $1,146.35 Y-Pipe New: $629.99 Package Cost from This Guy: $1,100 obo These things are amazing, loved having them on my truck, had a flow master outlaw kit behind them (also for sale but requires a core swap of your factory exhaust )
  2. 325 PayPal, or 275 PayPal gift shipped 2 day priority. Mails immediately . Around 10k on it. Never cleaned the filter as it’s not even dirty. But I’ll clean it and oil it before shipping as well.
  3. I have some left over items from my 2014 Sierra that I wanted to sell to make room in my garage. All prices are or best offer and do not include shipping. -Complete 2014 Sierra 4WD double cab front strut and rear shock assemblies. Removed at 4200miles and have been boxed ever since. $500 -Brand new never installed read mud flaps w/red gmc lettering. This is an oem part. $40 -Factory air intake assembly with hoses. $100 -TonnoPro Tri-Fold hard tonneau cover. I purchased this for my 2016 Sierra CC and realized I prefer the BakFlip G2 that I had on my 14 DC. This will fit the 5'8 bed. Part number is HF-159. I purchased this new in May for $529. Will let it go for $450. Again all prices are best offer and if local pick up doesnt occur will ship from 30813. Will upload pictures shortly.
  4. Just wanted to get some ideas as to what you might have found to be useful or cool to install on your truck. As per the title, I am looking forward to ideas that would fit a K2XX platform Silverado 1500. Mine is a 2016 LT crew cab standard bed. Things that I have been thinking about have been a spray on bed liner from LINE-X and an aftermarket exhaust that would be legal in CA. Hope to hear about quality gems out there and even the sad stories about bad quality parts so that we may all learn. Diagrams and pictures and first hand examples are much appreciated! If you post about exhausts, please tell me for what vehicle length its for please (short bed, standard bed, long bed). Thank you for your participation!
  5. After yesterday's unveiling of the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, we're interested in hearing what you guys really think about the new trucks. So, take the poll in this thread and let's find out what the general consensus is. Then let us know what you think in this thread
  6. Just cleaning out my ever growing garage (actually don't have a garage so no room for this stuff, lol). Long story short I haven't had good luck with mirror caps except for when I installed the color matched. But my loss is your gain and the mirror caps are included for free with the door handles. There is no discount if you do not want the mirror caps as that does not affect my shipping prices. If you have any questions please post and I will do my best to answer as soon as possible. Thanks for looking guys. For Sale (Pictures and Pricing below) Black door handles and mirror cap set - $65 shippedI order this set from eBay and the seller did not properly package the mirror caps so one clip and one tab broke on them. I still have the broken piece of the clip attached to the mirror cap via scotch tape as seen in the pictures below. The door handles themselves are absolutely perfect, they were new take off's. My original intention was to have them painted but I just ended up purchasing a set of color matched door handle and caps instead. So now when you buy the door handles you get the mirror caps for FREE!!! Chrome door handles and mirror cap set - $85 shipped ***SOLD***The chrome door handles and mirror cap set were the ones that game on my vehicle from the factory. I removed the door handles with not issues but really sucked at removing the mirror caps. I broke a good bit of the clips on the mirror caps but they will still work. If they don't work just throw them out as I am including them for FREE with the door handles. Both the door handles are mirror caps exterior are in perfect like new condition. They were both coated with black plasti dip since 900 miles, the truck is now a couple hundred miles under 5,000 miles. If you see any spots or blemishes on the chrome that is just left over plasti dip (I will clean/shine them up before shipping of course). Black Broken piece of the clip is attached to the mirror cap underneath the scotch. Chrome
  7. Hello Everyone, I am looking for anyone that has a center console for the 2014 GMC Sierra SLT. I bought the truck a few weeks ago (pic in avatar) and it has the jump seat in the front. I saw another SLT with the center console and I cannot live with the jump seat anymore. Obviously I cannot go trade this truck for one with the console but I really want the console now. The interior of my truck is black leather. If by any chance anyone would want to trade their console for my jump seat I would be willing to cover all the shipping. If I cannot find anyone selling this part I need to find where I could buy it. I really dont want to go to the stealership though. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. New truck and new to the forum so apologies for any faux pas. A fairly common topic i see and one i have interest in is the problem with HID projector bulbs not looking far enough down the road (ie: aimed too low). Realizing this is likely done from the factory to avoid blinding other drivers given that a truck sits higher than an oncoming honda civic, i'd still like to be able to adjust to see a little further down the road, especially coming down hills. True story, took a 14'SLT Sierra for a 10min test drive on a rural road and almost brought back a raccoon roadkill accessory b/c the lights just don't look far forward enough. Does anyone have experience with either: a) adjusting the angle of the lowbeam HID lamps in the headlamp assembly? b) having your dealer adjust them to your satisfaction? Any other suggestions for getting headlights a bit brighter or more useful would be appreciated.
  9. I can't say much more but can confirm that both the new HD and SUV designs will be unveiled in the month of September. As a result, we will be adding new forums for each of the new models in the near future. Stay tuned for details in the near future. I have dates but can't speak on them quite yet.
  10. Good day everyone! Hello from Texas, where I am preparing for my first chance to drive the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, tomorrow, May 9th. Tonight, I am scheduled to get a walk around of the new Silverado and will chat with engineers and designers about the new truck. Tomorrow, I will have most of the day to drive and experience the new Silverado. My plans are to update this thread over tonight and tomorrow with photos and interesting information that I find out during my trip. I hope to update things quite a bit but internet connection access and the temperament of my phone will play a part in how many updates I will be able to provide. Tonight's walk around begins around 8pm eastern and tomorrow's drive starts around 10am eastern. I hope you can all enjoy and I can provide some additional insight to the 2014 Silverado to the group.

Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the new 2014 Silverado regular cab will start at $24,585, including a $995 destination freight charge, the same base price as the 2013 model. For that price, the 2014 Silverado regular cab, which starts production this summer, will include a number of major improvements: A more powerful, more efficient EcoTec3 engine, A six-speed automatic transmission, A stronger, quieter cab with an all-new interior, Four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife rotors A new bed with standard box rail protectors and CornerStep bumper The base starting prices for the Silverado crew cab, the first model to launch later this spring, and for the new double cab Silverado, which replaces the extended cab, also will be the same as for the corresponding 2013 models. Buyers of all 2014 Silverados also will receive a standard scheduled maintenance program for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. Up to four maintenance visits are included in the price of the vehicle, each one of which includes a regularly scheduled oil change, oil filter replacement, tire rotation and multi-point vehicle inspection, based on the schedule in the vehicle owner’s manual. “The 2014 Silverado is new from hood to hitch,” said Alan Batey, vice president, U.S. sales and service. “When you combine the innovative features of the new Silverado with base pricing equivalent to 2013 models and standard scheduled maintenance, Silverado becomes a great choice for pickup customers, helping them save money when they buy – and when they drive.” Proven V-8 power with better efficiency than a turbo V-6 The 2014 Silverado launches later this spring with crew cab models equipped with the all-new 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8, which is expected to power three out of four Silverado 1500s. Chevrolet today announced EPA estimates of 23 mpg highway for 2wd models, and 22 mpg highway for 4x4 models. That is better than any V-8 competitor, and beats the EPA estimates for the 2013 Ford EcoBoost turbocharged V-6 for both 2wd and 4x4 models. Silverado’s 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is SAE certified at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, with more than 300 lb-ft of torque available from 2,000 to 5,600 rpm for responsive performance under a broad range of real-world conditions. “Silverado’s available 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 gives customers the best of both worlds,” said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for Silverado. “Customers get the proven power and dependability of a V-8 truck engine, with better fuel economy than a leading competitor’s smaller turbocharged V-6.” “EcoTec3 builds on 58 years of V-8 experience and trillions of real-world miles,” said Luke. “The 2014 Silverado will give customers class-leading V-8 fuel efficiency and the peace of mind that comes with a proven V-8 design, a combination no competitor can match.” Best available towing rating of any light-duty pickup Demonstrating the capability of the 2014 Silverado and its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 engine, double cab 2WD models equipped with the available max towing package, available later this year, will have towing ratings of up to 11,500 pounds, more than any light duty pickup currently on the market. To further save customers money and reduce inconvenience, Silverado’s 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is designed to operate on regular 87 octane gasoline even when towing or hauling. Silverado will also offer later this year a standard 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 that is expected to offer exceptional torque and towing capability for a standard V-6, and an all-new 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8, with even more power, torque, and towing capability than the 5.3-liter V-8. Final performance data and EPA estimates for these engines will be available in the coming months. Seamlessly switch to four-cylinder operation Silverado’s combination of capability and efficiency results in part from its EcoTec3 engines, which provide the proven power of a large-displacement truck engine when needed, then switch seamlessly to four-cylinder operation under lighter loads. “In creating the 2014 Silverado 1500, we looked at a wide variety of powertrain configurations, and concluded that large-displacement truck engines could best provide the payload and towing capability that truck customers require, with the long-term dependability they expect,” said Luke. “Silverado’s EcoTec3 technology eliminates the fuel economy penalty that often goes with rugged, high-torque truck engines. With our EcoTec3 engines, truck customers don’t have to do more with less – more work with smaller engines. They can keep the benefits of a larger displacement engine and still get better fuel efficiency.” All three EcoTec engines feature direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, a combination not found in competitive trucks. The engines also use a compact overhead valve design and weight-saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads to reduce the mass of the engines for additional energy savings. Other features that give the 2014 Silverado impressive capability include frames made from high-strength steel; rugged six-speed automatic transmissions; larger, stronger rear axles for V-8 models; and an updated suspension with two-stage multi-leaf rear springs. Among the other updates for 2014 are a stronger, quieter cab; revised steering, suspension and brakes; and ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed. The broadest portfolio, the right tools for the job The 2014 Silverado 1500 crew cab will be joined later this year by a regular cab model and a new double cab model, which replaces the extended cab and features forward-hinged rear doors for easier access to the back seat. Also coming soon are new heavy duty pickups and an all-new midsize truck based on the successful global Colorado. "Chevrolet will have the broadest portfolio in the business," said Luke. "No one will be better positioned to offer each and every truck customer the right tools for the job."

  12. I just arrived at home a few hours ago. I couldn't wait to share my first batch of photos with you guys from the first drive yesterday. Many more to come!
  13. GM/Chevrolet sent out a handful of new press releases on May 5th about the 2014 Silverado. I wanted to consolidate each of the releases for anyone to research/read at their leisure. It's a lot of repetitive information but informative none-the-less!

  14. I have just confirmed that I will have the opportunity to drive the new 2014 Silverado in early May. My best guess on the exact date is May 9th. This is a great opportunity for GM-Trucks.com and we plan on taking full advantage of it. Let's use this thread as a place for your requests about what I should do, what I should cover, and how you want me to show you the all new Silverado.
  15. Although today is April fools day, I've just got word that we will finally get *some* of the 2014 truck specs today at 11am eastern. This is not a joke.. this is serious. Here's part of the the note I've just received "Chevrolet and GMC will release base pricing, EPA fuel economy estimates, and other performance data for the 2014 Silverado and Sierra at 11 a.m. EDT Monday, April 1. This information covers pickups with the all-new 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8, our mainstream engine, which is expected to power more than three out of every four of the trucks." What about the 4.3L and 6.2L? I have no idea. We'll see what happens at 11am. UPDATE: Discussion moved here-->First official 2014 Silverado & Sierra specs - 355hp 5.3L
