  1. Welcome to my build! Started with a 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4wd 5.3L, which I bought with 9k miles on her in August of 2020. Got a crazy good deal on it, justified me driving to Georgia from Houston to pick it up. It even came with the Ranch Hand front bumper on it already, other than that she was stock. Little bit of background on my past trucks, I've been fortunate to own quite a few: 07 JK Wrangler, 08 Silverado 1500 LT Z71, 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Z71, 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT w/ 6.2L, 2016 Denali 2500 Duramax, 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, and finally my 2019 Sil
  2. Hey all, I'm back in a Chevy finally! I come from the prerunner/ high speed offroad side of things and have been building, buying, and selling a few dedicated offroad toys recently. Decided to take a break and finally got back into a Silverado and I love it so far. Thought I'd take the time to share with you my experience during these past 3 weeks of owning a 2018 Silverado. I picked up a 2wd LT 5.3L crew cab in white and the parts ordering began immediately! Of course, I had to have the aggressive offroad look so I went with the fo
  3. Ok so I have a 1983 gmc 1/2 ton that I'm wanting to build but I have some issues with rust in the windshield channel and I'm not entirely sure how I should go about repairing it.
  4. Has anyone installed a water/methanol inject kit on any of the small blocks (2014-2018)? I personally have the LV3 4.3L V6. Looking to eliminate the carbon build up, caused by direct injection, on the intake valves. Right now I'm trusting that Sea Foam is doing the job every 30k miles. EDIT* I'm also interested in the increased performance after tuning. I am aware that a catch can would eliminate the majority of carbon build up on the valves.
  5. Hey All, New to the forum. Few questions. There is a truck I am interested in and unfortunately I cannot rely on the sales person. Here are the build details from the sticker. What I am curious about is, is this trailering package also known as the "Max Towing Package" ? Reason I ask is the hitch is a GM V-5 which is rated at 12,000/1,200. The owners manual also says the following... 1500 4x4 crew cab short bed 5.3L V8 - 3.42 - MTW 9,100 - GCWR 15,000 5.3L V8 with 8-speed Auto and Enhanced Towing package - 3.42 - MTW 10,700 - GCWR 16,700 5.3L V8 - 3
  6. 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 &am
  7. Hello everyone, welcome to my build thread! This thread will be updated as I go. If you have any questions and/or concerns, feel free to comment below or PM me. Thanks, I hope y’all like it! At the same time, I’m also trying to find a fix to a lot of issues with the truck. Many that others are experiencing as well, and some that seem to be isolated, so stay tuned. I’d love to hear your solutions to common problems found on our trucks. The story began when I brought her home on the night of January 3rd, 2017... Current Mods (as of 04/08/2018): - Black factory B
  8. So I figured it was finally time for me to start one of these build posts. I appreciate peoples input and ideas, so feel free to comment and tell me if you have a suggestion. I can't wait complete my build, but is a build ever really complete? Haha! The more I think about it, the more I think of things that I want to do to it. Anyways... The truck is a Cardinal red 2016 GMC Sierra SLE 5.3L with the Z71 package. It came with 20" rims and a factory bedliner. I bought it in October 2016 and so far I have already done a few phases of the build. Phase 1 was dealer installed -Magnum RT s
  9. Hey Guys, Just want to make a forum on my build! Shes slow, but a steady ongoing process. Always changing my mind on what to do with my truck. I bought it back in Sept, and I love it. Not a single problem that i've noticed. My dealership has worked on any and all recalls asap, and are pretty good at letting me know things. This is my 1st brand new truck, and quite the upgrade from a 99 Chev. I bought my truck with hail damage and got about $16,000 off I believe (can't remember sticker price). Wasn't sure if id like the Brownstone, but its grown on me - I like it a lot. Anyways heres the 3
  10. Here we go. This is my first truck and my first build log. I plan to keep it updated and frequently reply to comments so your input is welcomed greatly! Just a month ago I purchased my first truck and i decided to go with the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 6.2L. This build will be meticulous seeing that I want it to be and extremely clean build and possibly a quality show truck. Lets get to the stuff you guys want( The goods/build plans ): 7" Lift - Full Throttle Suspension or McGaughy's 20x12 -44 Fuel Mavericks 35" or 37" Toyo Open Country MT's LED Cubes Mounted
  11. The Start of the build: I picked up a STOCK 2006 2500HD single cab 8ft bed for work/new project. I bought the truck for work and hauling toys around. After working my magic and shopping around i got it for 9k minus uncle sam getting his cut... I think it was a great deal compared to what i have seen around on craigs, ebay, dealers you know the routine, this thing was mint. Had 100,000 miles on the dot, but zero rust anywhere, not a rip, a tear, new tires, no lights, brakes were new, had a upgraded kenwood headunit so i slapped a 10" truck sub, and a 1600W amp and 4" door speakers i h

  13. I just took delivery of my 2016 Denali this week. I had to search for the spec sheet I wanted; this one is Onyx Black with black interior, short box and a 6.2L V8. What a truck! Not much to say about it right now since she's brand new but I have plenty of modifications I'll be making over time, and happy to answer any questions about it in the meantime. Some build items on my shorter term to-do list: Window Tint De-chrome (mirrors, door handles, trim) Remove running boards Leveling Kit Wheels/tires Eventually I'll be either blacking out the OEM grill or looking for an aftermarket on
  14. Hey so I have around 2000$ to play around with and I have a 2014 GMC sierra 4 wheel drive with the only thing put on it is a Rough Country 2 inch level and nitto trail grapplers. I have some idea's in what I want to do but I was wondering if any of you guys have any ideas for me. I'm looking for accessories outside of the truck not necessarily performance mods. I have a toolbox, 5% tint, and rhino lining in the bed. I'm looking for a more showy or buffer look on the truck. My idea is to get everything from Rough Country, but I'm open to other companies. What I have in mind is a 50 inch lig
  15. I purchased in mid-May and have quite a long list of mods to come. Below are before and after photos of my current process as well as a list of what I have planned. I will continue to post as I gather the funds to continue to make it my dream vehicle. Enjoy and feel free to provide your oppinions. 1) Debadge - (before / after) BADGED REAR BADGED SIDE REMOVED BADGES DEBADGED REAR DEBADGED SIDE And the first detail after the debadge 2) Tail Light Upgrade - (before / after) Stock Tails Old on Left - New on Right Spyder U-Bar LED
  16. Hey guys. I have a 2014 Chevy Silverado EcoTec3 5.3L Regular Cab and I want to build it to run decent track times. Decent meaning at least 11's. I don't really know much about the 5.3L and I would really like help on what should be done to run times like that. What cam? Intake? TB? Head swap maybe? Will even consider Turbos, supercharger, or a procharger. Also rear gears, will tranny hold up at the torque needed? Can I do this without messing with the bottom end at all? I'm open to anything and everything. The truck will not be driven on the street very much, I work 100+ hrs/wk but I'd find ti
