  1. Looking at this truck this week Low miles, oil undercoated (I live in New England), 4x4, pics look very clean It would be my first Chevy Specific issues I should look for/ask about? Any advice is much appreciated, thank you!
  2. Hello forum. I come to you from Buckhannon, WV, as the Business Manager for a local well plugging and servicing company. We recently leased 4 diesel 2500HD 4x4 work trucks to add to our fleet. The new trucks were a great addition until last week. Our employee was reversing one of these new trucks (with an empty trailer) in 4wd on a well prepared, gravel well site, when the yoke on the front driveshaft snapped. When the yoke snapped, the driveshaft disconnected and spun wildly out of control, cracking the bell housing and damaging anything else within its reach. Now a WV Chevy dealer is attempting to deny us a warranty claim on this new truck. My guess is some sort of casting issue with the yoke. The broken metal looks like sandstone. But this dealer is claiming there is no way it is a manufacturer defect and is claiming abuse/misuse with absolutely no credible evidence to support their claim. Hope you are having better luck with your trucks and dealers than us. Steve Buckhannon, WV SKM_C3850180822135100 (5).pdf
  3. Have a custom mid-pipe I built to install an aftermarket muffler (Magnaflow 12909) in my 2015 2500hd 6.0 truck. I removed the muffler and went back to stock so have this left over. This makes a cleaner install and saves your mid pipe if you want to revert back to stock. The aftermarket mufflers don't have as much offset as factory and the factory mid-pipe has a offset in it that accounts for that. With this straight mid-pipe it works perfect with the less offset of the aftermarket muffler and allows everything to be installed level with the truck. Here is my post about the muffler with additional info: I had this on a crew cab, 6.5' bed 4x4 truck. I'm sure other cab/bed configurations might need this lengthened or shortened but at least the hard part of the flange and hangers are done. Asking $75 for this custom mid-pipe. How it looked installed. muffler not included. Factory muffler to show the drop offset in the original mid-pipe.
  4. Hey all, I own a 2018 Silverado 2500HD LTZ Z71...The damn headlights are that terrible yellow color, Did Chevy not put LED lights on any of the 2500 models? Has anyone replaced the whole light assembly or even just bulbs to achieve the clearer look? If so please share and checkout the photo below of my headlights compared to the illuminated bow tie. Thanks for the help.
  5. Some of you might have seen my post asking for input before I bought my truck... Well, I bought it and I just made a short video to show you... Check it out and let me know what all info I fumbled, haha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY-cL1HkTtc
  6. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273226034501?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 Selling my brand new track grill still in the box if anyone is interested. This custom made grille is an exceptional eye catcher that will be sure to get you many looks, stares, and compliments. The grill has the word duramax in it, therefore it more so compliments the Diesel engine. Grille is brand new, still in the box. Also comes with 2 light bars already installed; with wiring harness.
  7. Big Whiskey's 2016 2500HD

    I traded my 2012 Silverado 1500 for a new 2016 2500HD! It's an LT trim level, but has quite a few options. It has the All Star package and LT Plus package, which adds most of the important items. It also has a few extras, like the LED bed lighting and towing mirrors. MSRP was just a little over 50k. Here's a few completely stock, dealership photos. It looks pretty plain for a 50k truck!
  8. New to this forum and need some insight. I recently picked up an 01 2WD 1500hd thinking the towing capacity was in the 9,000# range but after looking at the NADAguides it lists the 01 2wd model at 5000# max towing capacity. I purchased this thing used with 95k miles needing it to tow a LS swapped Nissan 350z to the drift track which weighs roughly 3500LBS on a flatbed car hauler weighing right around 2000LBS. Add a few sets of spare wheels, tools, and parts and I’m estimating I’ll be pulling around 6000-6500LBS total. The car is nearly finished and I’m looking to go to the track soon but now I’m second guessing my tow rig purchase. Is there anybody on here that can give me insight on how much they’ve pulled with an 01 2WD 1500HD? Looking at this NADAguides has me nervous, so any help on how much this thing will actually tow would be really appreciated. Not sure why the same year truck in 4WD configuration is listed at double the towing capacity... Thanks for any help!
  9. I put this on a week ago but wanted to post some pics. Basically a bolt on tip like the 1500 (double wall, rolled edge, stainless) so after looking I could only 1 without aftermarket name branded all over it and still retain the OEM cooling design because all the other tips that were vented are single wall. Magnaflow (part # 35233) 5” inlet 6” outlet. It did not come with a clamp so I used a double bolt one for an 18-wheeler from NAPA (part # 733-3225). I did have to cut 10” of the OEM pipe off and it sticks out about 1/4” more. Let me know what you think or if you need any other info. Cost was around 100 bucks.
  10. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/16/18 General Motors is hard at work testing the next generation of Heavy-Duty Silverado and Sierra pickups. The 2020 model has recently been undergoing cold weather testing, which is really no surprise as it's "winter" in North America right now. Our Spy Photographer recently put together a HUGE 46 image MEGA SET of 2020 Silverado HD photos. We just had to share. Here's what our photographer says: 2020 GM HD Chassis Cab Shows New DEF Tank Placement Our first look a the 2020 GM HD Chassis Cab flatbed gives us a nice peek underneath, giving some new details of the rear suspension set-up, and the positioning of the DEF tank for the Duramax diesel. The DEF tank on the current Duramax diesels from GM is mounted quite low—and very visibly—on the front passenger side of the frame. The massive tank’s placement has been oft-criticised by diesel fans, as awkward and ugly. The DEF tank placement on 2020 HD Diesel trucks has changed—as revealed in our profile shot of the chassis cab prototype. The new DEF tank now appears to reside close to the DEF additive cap, on the driver’s side behind the rear wall of the regular cab. 2020 GM HD Regular Cab Work Truck This Regular Cab/Long Box prototype shows the next-gen Chevy HD in its most work-focused form. The Regular Cab HD prototype, caught in these latest spy shots, gets the long eight-foot bed design, for the most versatile payload possibilities. GM touted new stamping methods which reportedly increased the usable bed width by 7-inches on the 2019 Chevy Silverado, so it’s likely we’ll see a similar gain in bed capacity on these HD models. If that’s the case, this gargantuan long-bed option will be even more voluminous, making it ready to handle an even larger work load. This Regular Cab prototype was gasoline-powered, so we’re likely looking at the 2020 version of what is now powered by a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 engine. It’s safe to assume that the gas powerplant under this HD’s hood is utilizing new Dynamic Skip Fire (DSF) technology to enhance the cylinder cut-off performance. DSF technology finally bowed in some versions of the 2019 Silverado, and it’s a certainty that it will be part of the 2020 HD mpg-enhancing tricks. 2020 Duramax Crew Cab Our latest shots of the 2020 HD Duramax Crew Cab—which provide some of our closest, most-detailed look yet at new HD trucks—were caught as the prototype made a lap around the GM Proving Grounds. A close look at the camouflage on the at the center of the front edge of the hood reveals a mesh panel that will allow air to enter into the Ram Air slot hidden on the hood. The Ram Air hood scoop was added to GM’s HD trucks in the last update, and they’re said to feed up to 60% of the cooling air required by the engine, increasing horsepower and torque. The camouflage mesh panel has velcro taps at the front and back, which would clearly allow for the panel to be folded back and secured to allow more air-flow, as testing permits. The exhaust tips are consistent with prior GM HD diesel trucks, and it looks like we can see evidence of venturi air slits along the initial span of the exhaust pipe. The new shots give us our best look yet the massive grille that appears to be in store for GM’s next-gen HD trucks. A deep dive into the specs of the recently-unveiled 2019 Silverado 1500 revealed some of the tricks that are also likely destined for the HD truck. The camouflage hides any evidence of Silverado 1500’s innovative front fascia aerodynamic air curtains, but that’s not surprising, since that design revelation made it all the way to its debut without being leaked. Expect the same stamping, and packaging innovations that debuted on the 2019 models to translate to the HD models, for increased bed space and cabin space. It’s clear from these prototypes that GM’s next-gen HD pickups will be massive beasts to match the Ford Super Duty. 2020 GM HD 3500 Dually Crew Cab We’ve included our earlier shots of the HD Dually prototype that originally signaled the start of testing for GM’s 2020 HD pickups. The Crew Cab Dually is a massive thing, impressive in size, and amplified by what appears to be a more larger grille destined for GM's next-gen HD trucks. The prototype’s caught here appear to the Chevy Silverado HD variants, with judging by the horizontal nature of the placeholder LED signatures that are in visible through the frontal camouflage.
  11. I'm wanting to put some nice looking Beadlock wheels on it with some 33-35 inch Tires, for my next upgrade. (220,000 miles so far) I would like some advice on what tire would fit while turning full lock to lock without Rubbing. I'm installing the big fender flairs from Bushwacker, that require cutting the fenders, these add 4-5 inches in width. Have a 4 inch lift in front and a 2 inch lift in the rear. (Rancho Suspension lift) I will drive this everyday on and off the farm (tends to get pretty muddy after a rain), as well as on and off road trips. Maybe even some storm chasing. I'm leaning towards these wheels: ATX SERIES BLACK AX757 CHAMBER PRO II WHEELS 17x9, 8x6.5, with the BF Goodrich KO2 Tires. Here is a link with the details. http://www.americanracingequipment.ca/wheel/33130/ax757-chamber-pro-ii How big of tire can I put on and NOT have any Rubbing? If the Tire sticks out no big deal the fender flairs will cover tires 4-5 inches outside the fenders. If there are better suited wheels AND tires for this Truck feel free to add that information. This is an expensive upgrade especially since the Drivetrain has also been replaced or rebuilt and upgraded. Looking for some well thought out honest advice. I need to run a Grade 8 Tire as I haul my Tractor for service, and I also want the ability to air down for more traction if necessary. The wheels are 17x9. (See Link Above) I would like a strong, capable long lasting Tire for the duties listed above. I will answer any questions you have of me. Thanks in advance, Texas Suburban Trucker Quote Edit
  12. Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher, GM-Trucks.com 2/2/2018 Almost one year to the day after we got our very first look at the 2019 Silverado 1500 and only three weeks since making the truck official, GM is out testing its HD counterpart, the 2020 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD. Our photographer captured the camouflaged prototypes undergoing cold weather testing. He had this to say about the 2020 HD. So what do you think? From what you've seen of the 2019 Silverado 1500, does the 2020 HD models excite you? We'll have more information about the 2020 Silverado and Sierra HD models in the coming months. 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/3500HD Spy Photography
  13. Hello, I own an 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Diesel Crew Cab Long box pick up, it's throwing a display message, but not giving me any codes, the message is service trailer brake system, it used to show that message and then I had it brought into the shop the second of July and they replaced the trailer break relay in the rear, had to change out some eye connectors at the fuse box. They also replaced the fuse. Worked great again from then to about a three weeks ago and this was including an 11 000km trip towing the trailer, it brought the message up again. The truck had been sitting and driven every once and a while, a bit of idling this winter as well, but no towing. so I replaced the fuse because it looked blown. After replaced it work fine again no more message thought maybe wet weather caused it. Now unfortunately now again yesterday I went to use it again and the message comes up, it was just recently used a few days ago and no message, today we have some dense fog as well as some rain. I think it only happens when it rains heavy or fog.. I am not entirely sure on that though. I replaced the fuse in the fuse box for the (ITBC) The one I changed out before to get it to work, and this time it did not work and nothing changed on the dash message still up. I can more than easily replace the Relay without any issues, but I don't want to do that if it is just going to create the exact same issue. Any ideas on what might be causing this? Also on a side note, whenever I start the truck it puts out grey smoke until it has warmed up passed about 79-85 degrees Celcius (174F-187F), which is normally after driving for about 5 mins 10 at most or letting it high idle until that temp, it also does smoke when driving until warmed up. it never puts out black or blue smoke. Its grey, just as it is on a cold day in a gas engine. today we've reached the highest temp lately about 8 degrees Celcius and it still smoked. It never did this in the summer or fall just after it got cold. So I am just wondering if this is normal or if something is causing this to happen when it shouldn't be. Could it be something as simple as it needing an oil change? Or also does it need a long drive at highway speed to deal with burn cleaning the DPF? I am a new owner to this pickup, and it is my first year with it so I am new to diesel's and don't know what to expect from them. Any help Is much appreciated!

  15. Hey guys, I have a 2017 Sierra 2500hd denali 4x4 Bought new about 2 weeks ago and am finding when I'm climbing in and out of the truck the front seat squeaks. It sounds like the leather rubbing on something. When just driving it's fine, but shifting myself around or getting in and out there is a squeaking noise? Its driving me nuts! The cabin is next to silent except this issue... A 3500hd denali i test drove did not have this problem. Just wondering if its something simple before i go bothering my dealer.... As a side note I also have a 2017 Yukon Denali and the seats make no noise at all and side by side they are the same seat.
  16. I have a 2018 2500hd work truck model when I attempted to use manual mode it only let me shift to 3rd is that common on work trucks or all of this year? Fuel mileage is about 10-11 mpg and that's babying it and my uncle had an 01 6.0 that got 11 no matter he was loaded or not? Any advice
  17. Hello everyone. I’m new here. I have a 2004 2500HD with a blown tranny. My Wife’s Boss just gave me a 2002 3500 with some engine issues. I’m wondering if I pull the motor from the 2500, will it match up with the 3500 tranny. They are both a 6.0 gasoline, as far as I can see it’s all the same setup but wondering if someone with a little more knowledge could help me out?
  18. Hello everyone, I just bought this used 06 Duramax 2500hd crew cab. So the guy that had this truck before me put a screw through the harness going through the driver door towards the bottom that runs all the lock/unlock door open windows etc. Etc. The window controls on the driver side work, but not the door lock/unlock. The passenger lock/unlock works, and driver rear door power lock does not work at all.. the guy that put the system in re-spliced the wires but it's still not working. He thinks either the control module got semi-fried, or the buttons in the door got semi-fried because he said lock/windows/and mirror controls are all one unit with it's own little computer. If anyone has any tips on how to trouble shoot this I would be very appreciative, and also any idea on where to get a newer looking driver door interior panel because all the clips to hold the bottom it were broken off and replaced with, you guessed it, a screw! It's the tan interior, other that that the thing looks almost new. Thank you in advance for the help!!
  19. So Here is Ontario we got our first snowfall this year, so I went to go move my 08 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab Long box pickup and wouldn't go as I didn't have any weight in the back... So I switched it to 4 and went to go but nothing, The 4WD switch indicator light flashed for about 30 seconds and then finally switched (Or supposably) switched to 4WD HI and the 4WD HI light was aluminated but the 4WD wasn't working so I switched from 4HI back to 2HI and it switched normally on the switch no waiting 30 seconds... and tried switching it back again and then the service 4WD message on the dash came up. i also tried putting it in Neutral and tried 4L and 4HI but nothing. Back in the summer I was in a murder situation pulling a heavy trailer uphill so I switched to 4 all good and drove out, a few mins later went to switch back flipped it and immediately on the display came up "Service 4WD System" so I just kept driving (as per I was in a time crunch) and about 5 mins later after a few jerks of emptying a dump trailer and restarting the truck it finally switched to 2HI. After that i never thought about it again until now. I also have a loud/ quite like humming or growling noise like what winter tires would make when driving on pavement in 2HI at anything above 60 KM/h. I have bf Goodrich all terrain Tires on my truck, so I assumed it was just that. but now a little skeptical on if it is the tires or something like the transfer case. I am a good do it your self-mechanic, I don't know too much but I learn as I go, so any help is much appreciated.

  21. HVAC stopped working, help!

    Hi there, I have been having an issue with the HVAC in my 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD duramax w/ auto climate control. The blower would intermittently stop working from time and time, and sometimes would work fine for days. However just recently it stopped working altogether, right during a cold snap of course! After researching all over the net, I learned the most common problem was the blower motor resistor (or in my case the HVAC control module). So I replaced it hoping for a quick fix. But still didn't work. Ive tried disconnecting the battery and resetting the system, ive checked voltage all over and the control module is getting power but is not sending power to the blower. I bench tested the blower and it works fine. All fuses are good. I'm not sure what else to look for. I am at the point where I'm considering taking it in, but of course due to the holidays I cant get my truck in to any shop until the new year, if I haven't froze to death by then. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The picture is to show the type of control module I have. (Pictured is the old one, new one is identical)
  22. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/13/2017 Just in time for a huge March Nor'Easter, we're getting our first opportunity to drive the heavily updated 2017 Silverado HD on our home turf. For the next few days, we're parking this Silverado in the GM-Trucks.com Garage. Since this 2500HD is also packing the "increased strength" 6.6L Duramax Diesel Engine with 910 lb-ft of torque, we're already lining up things to tow and haul around. From now until Friday we're going to share our week with you as temporary owners of the most powerful consumer HD truck on the market today. Our example HD is equipped as follows 2017 Silverado 2500 HD LT Double Cab 4WD Staring Price- $43,796 Notable options 6.6L Duramax Diesel - $9,340 18" Chrome Aluminum Wheels - $1,295 Trailering Equipment Package - $575 LT Convenience Package - $1,425 Trailering Mirrors - $310 Five Camera Trailer System 5th wheel prep - $370 (I think this falls under "Provisions Special Equipment") Total Suggested Price: $62,575 Be a part of this review! What do you want to know? What do you want us to take a photo of? What would you like covered if we give a video walkaround? Stay tuned for more updates to this thread later today and as the week goes on!
  23. Okay so i have an 04 2500HD with the lq4. ive replaced the TPS, the pedal sensor, and even the knock sensors. while i had the motor apart or while reassembly somethimg mustve gone wrong because after reduced engine power i have a very rough idle almost like it jumped time. however after you cycle the key and get it started again it runs fine. but often with little to no power. i have somewhere around 457k miles on the motor and it hasnt done this before. i know my fuel pressure regulator is bad and i have one ordered and on its way for me to fix which i believe solves my power issue, but not the reduced engine power problem. ive read that cleaning the grounds is an option and something about intake gasket failure could be a culprit for both. im going to clean the grounds and change the fuel pump assembly and see where im at but if that fails what should i look into? any info is appreciated thanks
  24. I have a 2001 2500HD wit the 6.0 engine 2wd, 133000 miles on the truck,I had to park the truck for about year and a half, I'm now wanting to get it out and drive it and it's throwing the random misfire code, (P300) I changed the spark plugs it still gives the code so I did some more checking and it appears to me the back two cylinders are not firing and I don't hear any "clicking" of those fuel injectors. I also checked and I have power and ground to the injectors. Is there a chance these just went bad or are possibly gummed up? I put a can of seafoam in the tank as well. But no luck. Is this problem happen very often? Where is a good place to get replacements?
