  1. I haven't seen anyone with official numbers. displaying the height of our trucks so I decided to pull it in the garage and measure up a couple of points. Keep in mind, this is a 2019 Trail Boss Custom, Z71, Crew Cab, Standard Bed, with ~3000miles. Everything is completely stock and the tank was 95% full. I measured the following heights; - all 4 corners(at the fender) measured at the center of the wheel - front diff (lowest point) - rear diff (lowest point) - front shroud/bumper (lowest point) I've taken the measurements twice, once SETTLED and once UNSETTLED. To better define the terms, the settled measurements were taken by simply driving the truck in the garage, and measuring. I weigh around 200lbs ( seems to matter as there was a little lean tot he driver side). The unsettled measurements were taken by, lifting the vehicle, front and back, just to the point where the tires were off, then slowly letting the jack down and removing it. SETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 1/4" DS rear - 41 3/8" PS front - 39 1/2" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13" rear diff - 9" bumper - 13 5/16" UNSETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 7/8" DS rear - 41 1/2" PS front - 40 1/8" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13 3/8" rear diff - 9" bumper - 14" I've added all the pictures to this gallery ----> I've attached a couple of critical photos I think everyone should be aware of.
  2. Alright, before you say you don’t hear anything let me explain first. This video posted below is my 2021 Trail Boss 3500k miles and has the most annoying exhaust sound. I know there’s some serious pro’s on here who could tell me what’s going on. Essentially any time I start it up high RPM, accelerate, or decrease RPM’s I’m greeted with this annoying metallic rattling noise coming from exhaust. Took it to dealer who claims it’s normal (per-usual) and says it’s the liters I can hear in the exhaust tone. They checked exhaust donuts and heat shields and found no issue. However you can hear a rattle and what sounds like an exhaust leak. Was told it’s a flapper but it’s not, flapper is toward back passenger side. This is front passenger side. I could best describe it as escaping air coming from somewhere near the manifold I’d assume. Almost like a metallic farting exhaust noise for lack of better description. Videos to follow of noise while commuting.
  3. Looking at purchasing a trail boss but after taking one for a drive I felt it was a big step in, I am not really concerned about it for myself but my wife may grow tired of jumping up into the truck and we also have two small kids. I was looking at adding the gm rectangular assist step with the deal but I am not sure if that will help the step up into the truck, or if I am better off going with some hoop side steps that come down a little more. If there is anyone out there with a trail boss with side steps do they make entering and exiting the vehicle easier? Pics would be great. i am used to getting into my 2500hd with the factory side steps so I figured this would be pretty similar I just can not find a trail boss at the dealer with side steps to try it out. Thanks
  4. Hey everyone! Has anyone found a company that currently offers a Roof Rack system (Not Universal or Cross Bar Clamp i.e. Rhino Rack) for the new 2019 Silverado? Added a picture of what I'm talking about. There are a lot for Colorado's models but nothing for Silverado! Ugh I know of a company RMT Overland who has one, but is only sold as a package direct to the dealerships as a "Turn Key" Overland Silverado. (Also Pictured) I have tried several attempts to contact RMT but they will not reach back out, I think cause I'm not a dealership maybe? i Dunno.
  5. So i finally pulled the trigger and installed a light bar on my 2019 Trailboss. I wanted a bumper mount, but refused to drill holes. SoAfter looking all over ZROADZ was the only mounting option i could find. So I bought these ZROADZ mounts https://zroadz.com/i-23909931-2019-2021-chevrolet-silverado-1500-front-bumper-top-led-bracket-to-mount-30-inch-curved-led-light-bar-pn-z322282.html#!submodel%3DLT TRAIL BOSS||model%3DSILVERADO 1500||make%3DCHEVROLET||year%3D2019 and this Rough Country 30” Curved bar light. https://www.roughcountry.com/30-inch-curved-led-light-bar-72930blkdrl.html The install for the mounts and light was very easy. the ZROADZ link above has a pdf with installation instructions, but it mounts to the bumper mounting bolts. The Rough Country light bar has a very high quality wiring harness and i didn’t want to mess with that and shorten it up, so the excess is taped and hidden behind the fender. There is an accessory “port” where the trucks wiring goes through the firewall, so getting wires through was a cake walk. Just cut the end of the rubber piece off. I took the switch plug aport pushed it through and put plug back on. There is a black plastic mounting box for one of the vehicle control modules you will have to remove to reach the wire on the inside. It is held on with two nuts and comes off easily. I ran the switch wiring behind the console and up through steering column. Its a temporary location until i can find a good solution. I would really like to use one of the blanks in the center console. The light bar itself is crazy bright and can’t believe i went this long without it. My only complaint and its me being picky, is that the light bar sticks out a bit further that i had hoped. And that is only because the RC light bar is no where near as deep as others i have seen. Its about an inch shallower than the light bars on my ATV. If it was like other light bars, you probably wouldn’t even notice. I wanted to post a bunch of images to show the install, but it only allows a few so here is a link to a google photos album. https://photos.app.goo.gl/eKYFVvY9ij9ZnDfEA I hope this helps, if anyone has a questions or wants other pics. Let me know.
  6. Hi everyone, new to the forum here and haven't seem to be able to find an answer after searching. Purchased a 2020 1500 AT4 last summer(love the truck), and recently added the Firestone Ride-Rite kit to the rear(kit #2609). I also ordered the 2" spacer kit as recommended (kit #2366). I'm having a bit of a problem with the install and was wondering if anyone else has added rear air bags to their AT4, and did you end up using the spacer or were you fine without it? Problem is the air bags are slightly misaligned, and appear "under-inflated" with the spacer in there even when I have 10-20psi in them(there is about 500lbs in/on the box via a canopy and a Decked box system installed in the bed; I'd rather not have to try and remove these unless I absolutely need to, to diagnose the problem). I know in the instructions it says to have 5.5-6.5" of space between the upper and lower mounts. So my next plan is to jack up the back of the truck enough via the hitch receiver to recreate the correct factory fender gap front to back(should be roughly 1.5" from the factory with no load if I'm no mistaken?), and then measure the distance between the new mounts. Thoughts and/or someone who has added rear airbags to their AT4? I'd assume the Trail Boss would be very similar? Cheers
  7. Anyone install a Retrax Pro XR cover on the new 2019 Silverado LT Trail Boss Crew Cab Short Bed? Curious how well it fits overall and with the tailgate. Also curious how well it installs. Any recommendations on where to buy from? Pictures would be great. Thanks in advance for any info.
  8. Good evening everyone, I have a trip planned this weekend to go to Vegas and I’m planning on taking my Trailboss. Looking online it shows that their clearance is 7.4 but on the google maps I show a sign that reads 7ft. Has anyone had any issues parking at the Paris/Bally’s garage?
  9. Have a set of used Chevrolet Headlight Assemblies off my 2019 Silverado Custom Trailboss. Truck has 8,000 miles on it / lights are in “like new” condition with no issues . asking $700 for the pair plus shipping (most places in US is approx $85). I’ve got more pics but I can only add 1 due to the restraint on attached pics on this post so message me if your interested. I just recently did a headlight conversion , grill change to the high country headlight assemblies is why these are for sale. I also have the black custom Trailboss grille for sale if anyone needs that as well. It’s listed separately.
  10. Used “like new” condition off my 19’ Custom Trailboss . Truck literally has 8,000 miles on it still so these parts look like the day they did it came off the dealer lot. Asking $450 obo +shipping which I believe is about $65 to most places In the US. I changed my headlights and grille out recently after doing a headlight conversion so I have my grille and headlights that came from the factory for sale now .
  11. Hey all..i have what is probably a dumb question. I have a 2020 trailboss..and im wondering if I can install the bilstein 5100 shocks to just level it out and if so what do I set them to before installing to get the desired leveled height ? 1" or 2" ? Any info will be appreciated..thanks in advance
  12. Engine out at 61,000 miles on 2019 trailboss. Paid out of pocket. Idle fell off at 76,000 miles. Anyone know of any lawsuits against Chevrolet?
  13. Has there been any recent updates this year? I have a 2020 LT Trail Boss and I was wondering about how big of wheels, tires you can put on without lifting it more than the 2 inch that it already has? Also has anyone changed their LED bulbs, I was considering changing mine to brighter ones mine seem not so bright.
  14. So far so good. Picked it up on Friday. Comfortable ride, drives nice. There is more leg room in the back seat than my ‘14 crew cab LTZ 1500 or ‘15 crew cab High Country 2500. Truck is 3 inches wider than the previous model too. Sunroof is also wider in proportion to the cab width. I have a few hundred miles on it and am seeing pretty good numbers. I’ve got nothing but compliments everywhere I’ve gone. 2019 Chevy TrailBoss 5.3 Motor 16.5 around town, 21 on the highway @ 70 mph. Not bad considering the OEM 2” lift and off road tires.
  15. Hello. I’m new to this so any help would be appreciated. I have a 2019 Silverado Custom Trail Boss. I recently saw someone on social media who upgraded the entire interior of their Custom Trail Boss with High Country interior. My main question is about how I go about putting a new High Country cluster in my custom trail boss. I’ll also need the upgraded steering wheel with the buttons on the right side to toggle through the screen. Do I need to get it programmed to work? If so, where can I get that done? Any information on this topic will help me a lot because I can’t seem to find much information anywhere on the internet. Thank you very much for your time. I appreciate your input.
  16. Just wondering if anyone has any good information or videos on how or if you can set up the invisible camera feature on a 2019 LT Trail Boss? I pull a decent size Ice Castle fish house and it would be nice to see behind it and inside it at times. If it's possible do you need to just replace the existing trailer plug? or does a dealer have to touch it to replace the plug and do some programming for it to display on the infotainment system? Thanks
  17. Just curious if anyone has any experience with an after market cold air intake system on a 5.3l Trail Boss. Worth it? I was told by my dealership service department that an aftermarket brand would not void my warranty.
  18. 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
  19. I was hoping y’all could help me on my decision. I have a 2019 custom trail boss 5.3 with AFM 6 speed. I called the local dealership here and asked how my warranty would be effected if I disable the AFM. They told me “as long as that tune didn’t cause the damage of whatever i bring the truck in for all is well.” So they recommended me to a local tuner here in town which was surprising. I called him and he said to disable my AFM it would cost around 500. I do know about the range device but I don’t want to to deal with the battery issues it can cause if you mistakenly leave it plugged in. My other option is the hand held tuners such as a diablo. I have zero experience with them but I am going to put in a cold air intake and flow master 44 exhaust in the future. Would my best bet be the Diablo tuner to disable the AFM and use it to adjust my truck to my other mods or go with the professional tuner?
  20. Hey guys hoping y’all could give me some insight on the custom trail boss 5.3 6 speed 3.42 gears with it’s towing if anyone has this model and tows with it let me know how it felt to y’all. I’m going to tow my buddies jeep Cherokee to His home state which is about 700 miles. Will probably go through some hills and mountains in TN. Does the the power train struggle with towing because of the 32 inch durratracs?
  21. I just recently purchase a 2019 custom Trailboss - it comes with these Tires LT275/65R18C MT BLACKWALL GOODYEAR WRANGLER DURATRAC (STD) - I noticed there seems to be lots of road noise even at lower speeds - I've never owned a vehicle with tires like this and have read reviews that they are quite noisy - even at slower speeds - just wondering what other owners say
  22. I'm looking to get a soft roll up tonneau cover for my 2019 trail boss. I was at the dealer last night and they were telling me that since the 2019 trail boss has the auto open tailgate that you have to go with the GM version of the tonneau cover and that the other branded covers prevent you from utilizing the auto open feature. Does anyone know if this is the case. and if so has anyone ever had the GM tonneau cover? is it good quality? I have always been an access guy but would still like to still be able to use the auto tailgate open feature. does anyone have any experience with this? does anyone have the lorado access cover on their silverado and still able to use the auto open feature?
  23. Hey guys I had a weird thing happen and I want to know if it has hallened to anyone else. I’ve had my 2019 LT trail boss for less than 6 months and this is the second time it happens and I was able to take a picture of it. Last nigh when I opened the truck with the remote and got in I noticed the screen was on and there was a fisheye view on it. After I turned it on it went off and when I put it in reverse the regular camera turned on. I thought it could be the same camera just a different setting but from the picture you can see the fisheye is left of the regular camera and the angle is different.I thought that bubble next to the regular camera was just an led light and I don’t see the camera in there. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to activate the fisheye camera? Whats the purpose of that camera? I cant seem to find anything about it online.
  24. When the T1 fist appeared I obviously was attracted to the TB. But after awhile and building all the models online the 2in lift didn’t really seem worth it. Then they announced the 6.2 and i6 comes in the RST and I can put my own lift/wheels on later. Also 18’s are to small for this truck imo I can live with the stock 20’s for a little. I feel like the RST is a better buy if you plan on modding your truck. If you like the 2in lift the TB is fine. With the new updates to the 20’s with engine trims and other things. Are you gonna trade in your 19? I’m sure the dealers won’t mind a truck with 1-10k miles and you probably wouldn’t lose to much $. I’m patiently waiting like everybody for the i6 to show what it’s got. I’m very glad the 6.2 will also be offered as a 2nd choice but I’m 85% committed to the baby Dmax?
  25. Hey, love this site, new owner of a TrailBoss custom and wish I would have gotten the LT with more little bells and whistles, but I was too cheap! Now I'm trying to manipulate as many functions and additional features as possible. I'm replacing the center console thanks to this site, now I'm trying to get text messaging from my limited infotainment. Any ideas? I'm anxiously hoping for many!! Thanks guys?
