  1. Any ideas where to run the coax cable and where to mount cb for the least amount of interior damage thank you for your suggestions
  2. Hey all, I have a 2019 trail boss with an awful noise anytime the rest suspension is used (all the time because you know...) I took it into the dealer and they "fixed" it with some grease.. but that has negative side effects, also it already wore off. So yeah. I just don't understand how this is even a thing. My 2013 didn't make any noises like this. My 2019 sounds like a 20 year old rust bucket. I went on Twitter, but now I question their ability to do anything. They are just going to tell the dealer to regrease it. Anybody else have this issue?
  3. Hey all, I'm new to this forum so if I'm not in the correct section or have done something in the wrong, just point me in the right direction. I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 and I've seen a few topics on here regarding a front end swap between the 14-15 body style and the 16-19 body style but none have really helped that much. I was hoping to get a new topic going for people wanting to do this in the future that contained more helpful information on the whole process. Now, I have done some research to see what would need to be done, and I've found that it in fact IS possible HOWEVER, if you want to do this, you have to replace the whole front end including bumper, grille, headlights, and hood. You can't just do it piece by piece because the lines wont match up. For those who have done this, is my though process correct and is it pretty much a seamless transition when swapping everything out? Meaning all bolt holes, etc. line up when switching a 14-15 front end with a 16-19 front end? If anyone has done this swap, please share your process!
  4. Figured I'd start this thread as a place holder for now. Will add mods as I go. My truck is a 2016 4.3 Chevrolet Silverado regular cab standard box 4x4. Purchased in June of 2019.

  5. It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times. Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process. I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live.

  6. This diode installation allows all of the lights to remain on simultaneously when the high beams are activated on GM vehicles. The diode is super easy to install, you need $2 and 10 minutes. 9 of those minutes will be spent congratulating yourself.After diode placement your lights will function as follows: In auto mode- whenever your lights come on automatically the fogs will be on also. Low Beams & Fogs- Only Low Beams & Fogs will be on High Beams- Low Beams, Fog Lights, & High Beams will all be on (normally by default) The vehicle turns off the fogs when in high beam mode, but this diode solves that. MAKE SURE THE SIDE OF THE DIODE WITHOUT THE STRIPE IS IN THE 10 PIN. The diode allows electricity to travel in only one direction.
  7. I have a 2019 Silverado custom. Beautiful truck but relatively bare bones. Wondering if anyone has had any luck finding a solution for upgrading to power folding mirrors which are only available on LTZ or High country models. I've found some aftermarket ones for up to 2018 so maybe I just need to be patient?
  8. hey all, I have a 2015 chev Silverado 1500 with 56k on it. yesterday (5-22-2020). I was sitting in line in drive and started hearing a loud squeal. thought it was the car in front me until I shifted into park and took my foot off the break and it went away! car moved up so I shifted back into drive and moved forward and it did it again just sitting still until I put it back into park. having lots of problems trying to diagnose it. drove it again today (5-23-2020) and it did it again but not as loud. would could this be? checked the tranny fluid and it was in the normal range. any help is great as I travel for work. thanks
  9. Hey all, I have looked and looked for more clear instructions on how to program a second key fob for my 2020 Silverado (dealership lost 2nd set). I live 8 hours from where I bought the truck and the dealership I bought it from would need the truck to program it. I am trying to do it myself. I have followed this guide but still no luck. The youtube video that is out for it is if you are programming a key fob without already having one programmed. It wasn't much help for me. Any GM Mechanics have a quick write up they can copy and paste would be appreciated. These are the two things that haven't been enough help for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=228&v=TUGuBOYIGr4&feature=emb_logo https://www.programyourremote.com/classified/2020-gmc-sierra-keyless-entry-remote-fob-smart-key-programming-instructions-listing-9870.aspx Thanks in advance
  10. I have a very nicely equipped 2017 Chev. Silverado z71 Quad Cab. Only have 6500 miles on it and bought it as a kind of retirement gift for myself. I use it for various things but mostly to go fishin or huntin in and tow my 18 foot Basstracker. The issue I am having is backing my boat back into the garage with it. I live in town on an alley and it is very tight trying to get the proper angle backing into the garage, especially if the neighbor is parked on the other side of the alley. I am wondering how much I might be gaining in maneuverability by trading it in for a smaller truck? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for any help.
  11. Has anyone taken a Custom Trail Boss and done the LT Trail Boss fog lights on it? I am looking for a plug and play kit if there is one out on the market. I'm trying not to source every single individual part from GM. I'm pretty sure I would have to go get the BCM reprogrammed if I'm not mistaken.
  12. Bought a clean 2000 Silverado but it has non power tow mirrors. I hate the look of them and I hate the big bulky look of the stock mirrors. What year mirrors would fit? I really like the 14+ mirrors but my guess is those won’t work.
  13. Banks Ram-Air® Intake System Dry Filter for 2015-2016 Chevy/GMC 2500/3500 6.6L Duramax, LML (Item # 42248-D) and a Banks AutoMind Tuner for the 2015-2016 Chevy/GMC 2500/3500 (Item # 66411). $275 each or $500 for both!
  14. Was talking to a customs shop in my area and asked what they'd recommend for a leveling kit (parts + installation) for my 2014 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71. They reached back out with a quote and said they would choose to install a set of Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts in the front, and that it would gain about 1.85" in the front. They quoted me $569 for everything including alignment, does that seem reasonable? Has anybody on here gone that route with a comparable pickup? All I've seen are 2 or 2.5" leveling kits, would 1.85" be enough to eliminate the factory rake as well as be able to fit 33's one day? If anyone has and could share before and after pictures, that would be great. Thank you
  15. Caught the last day of the truck month clearance deals and brought home this beauty! First step is storage. I have been looking at tool boxes, but having a hard time deciding. There are so many options. Flat black, shiny black, hammered metal look, or aluminum? then, recessed or low profile? I think the silver could pull off any color Would love to see pics of other members tool boxes. My favorite so far are the shiny black with the rails on top which I think would be great when needing a place to tie the tarps to.
  16. I’m planning on upgrading my gear ratio from 3.42 to 4.10 on my 2019 custom trail boss. I want to put a 4-6 lift on my truck from BDS with fox shock coilovers With 35 inch tires maybe 37’s but before that I want to regear my truck so that I don’t lose any power. Do y’all think 4.10 gears are good enough for should I go for like 4.55’s? If anyone has re geared there 2019’s and up please let me know the prices and gear shifting experiences.
  17. Hey everyone - first post here and just bought a new-to-me 2014 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 all stock. This is also my first truck so I'm definitely a newbie and if I'm asking some simple questions I apologize, but I couldn't find the answers I was looking for on other topics. Basically, what I'd like to do is level my pickup. I thought about doing maybe a small lift but I don't really want to fork out the money and I think the leveled Chevy looks just fine. Any recommendations for this? Seen people put on 2 or 2 1/2" level kits - difference between my wheel well heights is pretty much exactly 2 inches. The other thing that I'm having more difficulty making sense of is a wheel and tire combo. Currently, I've got P265/65/R18 on it. What I'd like to do is get a bit more rugged look while also getting more ground clearance for a bit of offroading, and hopefully not affecting fuel economy and ride quality too much, but I understand you gotta sacrifice somewhere. What I'm having trouble understanding is if I should get larger wheels or taller tires to achieve the ground clearance part. I've read that getting larger wheels can mess with your speedometer and such. Any advice on if I should stick with my 18's right now, and if I end up buying new wheels one day should I also stick with 18's then? If I went ahead and got my pickup leveled, which (or both) would help me get that better ground clearance? Increasing tires or wheels? What's the largest combo you'd recommend (with the level) that still prevents rubbing? Definitely want to get that rugged look but I haven't been able to determine which route to chase down, as the options seem limitless out there for what you can do. Could I just get bigger, more rugged, maybe wider tires to put on my stock 18's? Thanks in advance to anyone willing to give a newbie some advice.
  18. I unfortunately am having an issue with our trucks Infotainment System. It seems that none of the buttons or screen functions will work besides the volume and the mute. It is acting like someone may have locked it out or something like that happened. It still connected Bluetooth to my phone, but the tethering is not working with the cable. Is there a way to unlock it without taking it to a dealer if someone (who thinks they are funny) has locked it out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. One of the most aggravating things I'm running into is finding the right sub box that will fit under my back seat (Driver's side is what I'm looking at) on my 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic crew cab. I also dislike those sub cabs which claim to be bigger inside than the internal dimensions support. For the record.... Q-Power QTW-10 or TW-10 will not fit or let the back seat come close to latching (yeah, duh.) (Atrend) BBox 10SME, while good in height seems to conflict with the hinges and latching of the seat... unless I'm missing something. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on this... (I don't have a shop to make my own either.) So, I need ideas... brands/models that WILL fit... and give me at least .53 (bare minimum .43) CuFt of air volume up to a max of 1.03 CuFt. I have the Rockford P3SD4-10 sub which has a displacement of .03 CuFt; 10"; shallow mount - 3.5". I do use my back seat for family.
  20. I am the original owner of a 2003 GMC Sierra 3500 dually (DRW). The passenger side fender is broken, the tailgate is bent up, and the bed has some damage from a gooseneck trailer. In short, I am wondering if a complete bed replacement could be accomplished. On craigslist I have seen complete dually beds for sale. I presume the owners are replacing the bed with a flatbed / workbed, since most are zero to a few years old. Does anyone know what years a Chevy or GMC bed will fit as a swap? At its current age and value, I am not concerned about mixing new bed style w/ old cab style.
  21. Looking for recommendations based ofrom personal experience I’m considering getting Fox coil over 2.0 or 2.5 also Rancho quick lift. I currently have bilstein 5100 shock all around with stock springs and struts and I’m not quite satisfied with the ride quality over pot holes and bumps in the road are quite noticeable. I’m looking the best possible ride on my 2014 Silverado LT even considering new tires currently running 265/65/18 please help out this is my everyday driver mainly on freeway but will take on dirt roads every so often
  22. This is my first post and kind of lame. Being from Maine, the trucks up here come in contact with a lot of road salt. I'm trying to find a new fuel filler door. The only one I could find that was in decent shape and matching color was from a 2005 Chevy Avalanche 1500. My truck is a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500hd. Does anyone know if this part will fit my truck or where I can find this type of info? Thanks.
  23. 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!
  24. Here is a little extra information I found on from GM TechLink with tips and details regarding the lift points on the new T1 GM trucks. Newdude posted something similar in the frame issues topic a while back. I just thought I would add a little extra to that information. Lift Points TIP: Prior to servicing the vehicle using a lift hoist, the vehicle power assist steps must be disabled to prevent accidental activation. Use lift pads/spacers to provide proper clearance between the lift hoist arms and the vehicle’s fixed or power assist steps. After servicing the vehicle, be sure to enable the power assist steps. For lifting the vehicle, various lift points are recommended. (Fig. 13) The lift points are: Circular jack pad Widest point of the frame rail; requires adapter that is wider than the frame rail when using a hoist. Contact your hoist manufacturer for the appropriate adapter. Rear frame contact points Rear axle contact points Differential contact points Fig. 13 For the front locations, the two approved lifting points are the circular jack pad (Fig. 14) and the widest point of the frame rail, which requires an adapter from the hoist manufacturer. (Fig. 15) Fig. 14 Fig. 15 The hoist pads must not contact the rocker panels, the floor pan or, at the front pad location, the front fenders. Lift pad adapters for Challenger and Rotary lifts are available through GM Dealer Equipment. When lifting at the differential (#5) with a floor jack, avoid point loading the center section of the axle, which is aluminum on most rear axles. Use a floor jack with a rubber pad or wood block to prevent damage.
  25. Posting my a friend that just bought a 2020 Silverado 1500 custom. Can a power inverter be added to the bed and cab? The truck did not come with it.
