  3. Is anyone aware of what is required to install factory fog lights into a 2016 & up Base level Sierra 1500 that didn't have them from factory? Will any scrap of wiring be present? The switch is not there... but can one order a switch, the lights and slap it in? Can the BCM be flashed by a dealership if required? I bought an el cheapo that doesn't have fog lights and the blank inserts drive me bonkers already... so I WILL be filling them in with factory fog lights... it would just be nice to know if I can have them work like factory or not. Otherwise I'll wire them up like jobbers and have a jobber switch. Thanks
  4. 2017 Duramax get back in after driving it will not start turn the key dash lights come on but will not start (no click) takes about an hour then it will start has left me stranded six times since last summer. GM can’t find anything wrong (no codes) they return it does it again very frustrating. Anyone heard of this ?
  5. Hoping somebody might want to trade their dark slate metallic paint matched grill, pictured below in that dealer photo, for my chrome one! Mine is in perfect shape with only 5700 miles on the truck. I like having a little bit of chrome like on the bumper and the middle portion but having the grill edge paint matched would be perfect for me. I live around Santa Cruz, CA, just in case somebody is local to me. Thanks for any interest! 87C241E6-8C9E-449E-AAAD-B47C48883946.jp2

  7. Dears, I bought my 2017 Chevy Colorado Duramax Z71 brand new and I just love it. I was super satisfied with the performance and features of the truck. Due to the nature of my job, I had to move outside the U.S for a long mission to Africa, so I took my truck with me. Here started my nightmare. Just few days of use, I had the famous warning message regarding the quality of gas (DEF). I changed several brands of DEF but no success! I read somewhere that the shelf life of the product is key for the quality of the fluid. Now my truck is kind of locked, I am allowed to drive 6 Miles/h, it means it is not working. The worse thing is that there is no GM, Chevrolet store to assist. I was thinking to delete the whole DEF system if possible since the location where I am based is not regulated by the gas emissions. I will be very grateful if you could assist as I am suffering without my car. Thanks for your help.
  8. Do the 2019 GM Step Assists fit the 2014-2018 model years? Trying to figure out if the 2019 Sport Steps will fit my 2016 Silverado. Thanks.
  9. 2017 Silverado z71. Really strong fuel smell in cab especially on a fast stop and rough road turning. Seems ok mostly then very strong smell. Heat or ac makes worse. Dealer replace left fuel rail system last week. Still issue. Bought truck a month ago. 10k miles and was lease return in Detroit area. Now in SC.
  10. Quick question i ordered new wheels and tires I went with a 17 inch wheel and went from a 265/65 18 to a 275/70 17, I'm wondering if It will fit with out a level and minimal trimming? Picture of the wheel I ordered below
  11. Good morning everyone, I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!
  12. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 11/1/2016 You might have heard that Chevy and Carhartt have recently teamed up to develop a Concept Silverado HD. If you're at this year's 2016 SEMA show, you'll be able to see this fine piece of work yourself. If you're not one of the lucky enthusiasts that made it to Las Vegas this year, don't sweat it. We've got you covered. This morning I traveled to the Chevrolet Performance booth and took a look at the concept in person. To be perfectly honest, I didn't understand what the big deal with this Concept Silverado was until I gazed at it with my own eyes. The press photos that have been floating around didn't point out the small touches that the brand applied to this concept. In short, the Silverado HD Carhartt is classic, smooth, and a damn fine Chevy. If you get a chance to see the Carhartt Silverado in person in the future, you won't be disappointed. Until then, enjoy these photos from the 2016 SEMA Show. And if you want more info on this Concept Truck, check out the full details right here.
  13. Thinking about adding 2 or 3 small leds in the ram air hood scoop. Guy on another forum did it on a Silverado but this is the only one I have seen. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dieselplace.com/forum/76-speciality-forums/81-electrical/951082-2017-hood-scoop-lights.html%3famp=1 May be too many since I added running board lights though...
  14. Hey everyone, So I had a shop that specialize in lawn equipment, and snow equipment install a Blizzard Plow on my 2017 Silverado 1500 just a few weeks ago. I took the blow off one day and when starting my truck, I noticed both y headlights would flicker for about 30 seconds or so. I took the truck back to the shop I got the plow put on and they said that I have aftermarket headlights, which I don't... I told them the headlights are factory LED's. So they ran some tests and got another plow module to see if it was the module doing it or what. Sure enough it did the same thing. They said they are going to contact GM about the issue. They haven't gotten back to me yet but before they do, I was just wanting to ask other plow owners if they have had this issue and what they or their shop did to fix the issue. I supplied a video (below) to show exactly what they are doing. Both headlights will do it but in the video, only that one head light does it.
  15. Hey Guys, I have been reading this forum for awhile and seen different answers. But I got a 2.5” Motofab top and bottom mount leveling kit (similar to RC 2.5”) installed on my 2017 GMC Sierra CC Z71 and I’m interested in larger tires and keeping my stock rims. I have read that larger tires might come in contact with the UCA. I’m interested in the Ridge Grappler or the Wildpeaks AT3w. I am wondering what size tires will fit with no rubbing or no contact with the UCA. Please inform. Possibly looking at the following sizes: 275/60R20 275/65R20 285/60R20 285/55R20 295/55R20 305/55R20 Just looking for the most bang for my buck. Thanks in advance.
  16. Red Rally 2 build

    So here it starts. I bought a brand new 2017 red Silverado LT Z71 Double cab Rally 2 edition that was a left over with 4 miles on it. It was built in May of 17, and I bought it in July of 18. It was inspected for the first time in June of 18 and normally in PA that has to be done as soon as the truck hits the lot. I’m not sure what the story is on why it sat, but it did and the dealer was more then happy to wheel and deal with me to get it off the lot. I traded a heavily modified 2006 Hummer H3 that I bought new back in 2005. My H3 was the first to have many of these modifications. It was a Victory Red 06 with championship edition hood stripe, custom red & black leather interior, red carbon fiber dipped accents, color match grill, cold air snorkel, tow package, Monsoon radio, custom iPod attachment, DayStar 1 inch body lift, front level Tbar crank, Bilstein front & rear shocks, drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads, Trail Duty extended bump stops, air horn, GM fender flairs with splash guards, General Grabber 315/75/16 tires, GM touring exhaust, GM H3 tips, AirDoc’s intake, K&N filter, PCMforless tune, GM under body protection, PCSpider diff slider, GM rock sliders with steps, Hunner shock/spring sliders, Thor front bumper with bull bar, 12,500 winch, dual batteries, Tmax controller, KC off-road lights, hi-lift jack, engine coil spring delete, ported throttle body, Gobi ladder, stealth roof rack, window shades Since I am new to the Silverado platform and the truck is brand new, I expect the modifications to be slow at first. I will be starting with the basics like a bed tonneau, window shades, steering wheel bow tie black out, that type of thing.
  17. I apologize, I'm 56 years old and not sure to the dynamics or protocol of a form. I have a 2017 Silverado and discovered today that it is possible to roll down all the windows from the key fob. I regularly in the summer park my car with the windows cracked an 1" to 4"s to help let the heat in the car vent out. I'm surprised that cars don't have the feature to leave the windows cracked and as soon as the car detects rain falling automatically rolling up the windows without the owner needing to do anything. My question, Is there away to roll up the windows by app or key fob if I see it start raining?
  18. We bought this new in 2016 and now have around 40k miles, and the wife loves it,it has been well cared for and babied.I just noticed the coolant reservoir was at the bottom of it.I brought it up to the bottom of the line today,maybe 2 cups.I will be keeping an eye on it big time.Nothing on the garage floor and no smell but will be watching those closely.I start searching on here for info and will continue to.Any and all help appreciated .Thanks ,Gonz
  19. I am looking at the Readylift 66-3086 2.25" FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS - GM 1500 TRUCK / SUV 6-LUG 2017-2018 https://www.readylift.com/2-25-front-leveling-kit-w-control-arms-gm-1500-truck-suv-6-lug-2017-2018.html For my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with factory 17 inch aluminum wheels and 255/70R17 tires. After talking to the company, they said that I may need a 1/2 inch wheel spacer for the front so the control arms don't rub on the wheels. Is this true or is this something to try and get me to buy? The main reason I am looking at replacing the upper control arms is because I have an aftermarket heavy duty bumper with grill guard and it weighs around 200Lbs. That worries me with the factory STAMPED control arms it has now. If I need spacers, what spacer is best and cheap? Would I have to modify the studs? What else would I have to do so it doesn't rub? Thanks!
  20. Well guys, it finally happened with the 2019's coming out and all these dealers trying to move their new and used 18's I broke down and upgraded my 2014 GMC 1500 to a Certified 2018 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 w/ only 2700 miles! I am pretty excited about it, she's bone stock and she won't last that way for long. Going from 35's to stocks is going to be quite the transition at first, but don't fret! There are changes coming soon and I figured I would track my build right here, hope y'all will enjoy! It already started yesterday as I did some research and discovered my K & N cai will fit on the 2018, so I pulled that off and put the stock intake back on, also took the hidden light bar out of the grill, and of course took my good ole trusty tool box off (this will be truck number 5 for the tool box!). I placed an order just a few minutes ago and there are more goodies coming soon! Please let me know if y'all have any comments, ideas, or questions!
  21. RE: 2014 - 2018 Silverado/Sierra 1500 Wondering if any one has installed Readylift or Cognito UCA's with their leveling kit. Did you have to cut off the service perches/bump stop? If not have much clearance do you have between the UCA and the stop?
  22. Hey guys so I did a 2019 Frontend Conversion to my 2015 Denali, with the Ram-Air style hood..... But trying to find a wire harness that converts from 2015 to the new lights, well that's easier said then done. So I was given this site by a friend that did this conversion to his truck.... I highly recommend this site, as they use GM plugs & the wires are all as good or better than stock..... Nothing wrong with that in my book. Check them out, they have E-mail if u have any questions & in my experience they get back to u in like an hour or less...... These harness are truly "Plug & Play". No cutting any wires, no guess work, all that is done for u.... They have the schematics for all the years & work off of them to make sure everything is correct.... Plus they check everyone before shipment..... Pic of my Denali, before & after. Their website also include. https://www.gen5diy.com/collections/14-18-sierra-p-p-harnesses

  24. I am about to change the rear differential fluid on my 2016 Silverado. I went to the dealer to get the fluid (75W-85 special new fluid, supposedly "High Efficiency"). The dealer was unable to give me the volume spec for the fluid to fill it back up. I have seen both 2 liters and 2.6 liters required. Seeing as to how the fluid costs $22 a liter from the dealer, I don't want to buy 3 liters if I only need 2. Can anyone help clear this up/set me straight???
  25. Well, seeing as how I can't find much on this subject no matter what forum I go to, why not try to start the discussion here and see what kind of following I can get and see where we end up. If you're reading this thread, chances are you have thought about modifying or swapping out your current transmission in your 2014+ GM truck. In my case, I don't mind my 6L80 in my truck. It does fine for what I do right now and it's holding up just fine, but I think the big issue is when you start to search for big power (like I'm starting to do), that 6L80 is not going to hold very much (or so we think). Now, let's all face it. We've seen posts after posts, comments after comments, photos, videos, etc. of guys with built motors with turbos or prochargers shooting down the quarter mile in search for the best time on these 6L80s. Some say they're completely stock, others have them built, and we all ask ourselves the same question: Reliability. How well are these transmissions going to hold up to the abuse on the track? Especially if you want to make it a fast street/strip truck and drive it back home to the garage afterwords. We know for a fact that 6L90s can hold quite a bit of power. Even though I've mostly seen it in Camaro ZL1 applications, there is a guy on YouTube (GuitarmaggedonZL1) who is running a stock 6L90 on stock converter making 1000HP (give or take on an unloaded dyno) and the transmission hasn't puked all over the ground just yet. (Exaggeration, I know.) So, needless to say, a 6L90 swap sounds nice, at first... After you figure the extra length and weight (and in my case, relocation of the transfer case and getting custom driveshafts made), it starts to look a bit unpromising, but still not out of the ball park yet since it will be able to handle the power some are seeking, but where these newer transmissions lack significantly if you want to do boosted applications at the track (or even just launch control on N/A), no one has developed a transbrake. Very, very few forums are talking about this, and only one video exists of a guy in his BMW testing out a transbrake on a 6L80/6L90, and who knows how reliable it is. So, now, you start to think: Well, gee. What can I do now? How about a TH400 or 4L80e swap? So far, I've seen few posts on that as well. No one is talking about it, and I think the biggest problem people seem to be facing is the new PCM: E92. Also possibly the fact that the TCM on the newer transmissions is inside the transmission and whatnot, but whether that plays a part in this, I don't know yet. Now, adapting a TH400 or 4L80e can be done (most likely with a different bellhousing since the bolt holes are in a slightly different spot), but you run into the issue of getting it to speak/cooperate/communicate with the new E92, which I don't think anyone has tried. The only video I've seen of anything working in this application was on a 1320Videos video with a Nova where they were using an LT4 long block (built motor to 388 C.I.) and twin turbos, and it had a powerglide in it. Don't know if it was a manual valve body or computer-controlled, but what I do know is that they used the factory computer to run the DI injection system and piggybacked the rest to an MS3 Pro. After dealing with some issues, they were able to make that thing boogy to a 9 second pass at 148mph. So, these engines have potential to haul ass, but we just haven't figured out how to crack the system. So, at this point, I'll just leave what I've discussed here and see where the thread goes from here, and I'm hoping people chime in and vendors are watching/listening. Even though the demand isn't hot for it right now, there's going to be a surge for good transmissions when people can buy these trucks/cars/motors/transmissions for pennies on the dollar. Unfortunately, I feel like we'll have to wait that long in order to see results, but oh well. Just to give you guys an example: In the next year or two (2019 or 2020), I'd like to go turbo with my truck. (Doing all the supporting mods before going there minus built bottom end until I see where I can get with stock bottom end before sending a rod through the block or oil pan) Ideally, it'd be best to have a transbrake in that application with 2-step, but can't do it on the new transmissions. So, 4L80 seems to be the option, but I can't do that either because no one supports adapters or harnesses to make them work with the new motors/ECUs. That's the boat I'm in. I like to research everything before I go whole hog into something. Risk assessment, I guess.
