  1. Hi, I just joined the forum and tried to search for information about my specific issue and came up empty, so I'm hoping someone may have info I could look into on this subject. I bought my 2015 Suburban LTZ (5.3L 2wd) about 6 months ago (used, with 50,000 miles on it... I know ;) ). It now has about 62,000. I purchased an extended "Bumper to bumper" warranty along with it. A few weeks ago my front end started bouncing when I would hit bumps or drive out of parking lots. Anytime I go over a bump, it oscillates over and over. I've experienced this before with older vehicles. Its clearly the shocks that are bad. When the vehicle is stopped, if I push down on the hood and let go, it goes up and down several times before stopping. Instead of the standard, down, up, middle, - that would be expected from good shocks. I took it to my local dealership where I purchased it. After a week of waiting for diagnosis, and approval from the warranty company... They call me to say the warranty company says they wont cover "shocks" only "struts". From the looks of things, these are coil over shocks. I get that. However, the GM Part number description says "Strut". So which is it?! The warranty doesn't cover parts designed to wear out, I understand that. However, they state they will cover Struts. Anyway, they are telling me, my shocks need replacement and because of the LTZ Magnetic Ride, it is an $1,800 job ...just the fronts! at 60,000 miles! I'm not sure I want to replace them again at 120k miles if they are that prone to failure, with a cost like that tied to it. It sounds like I'm stuck with what the warranty company wants to call "Shocks" so I'm on to just trying to figure out how to get a decent ride back so I don't have a potentially dangerous situation on my hands. My options, as I figure, are as follows: a.) Pay the $1800 and get it fixed and continue with the arguably stiff ride this 'improved suspension' system gives. b.) Make some noise with the warranty company, waste some time, and probably wind up needing to pay out of pocket anyway. c.) Find a set of good after market shocks, and put them in. Then find out if the Magnetic ride system can be disabled (or if it even needs to be). I don't want to have a dash light on or any other issues if I just swap out the shocks on the front only (for now). I would even do a leveling kit if it came with new shocks. But I just don't want any suprizes by putting shocks on then finding out the system can't be bypassed or something. Does anyone have any experience removing the Magnetic Ride shocks and replacing them with Bilstein shocks or some other aftermarket brand? I look forward to any input anyone can give. I'm leaning hard on option c.) just because I've got a real sour taste in my mouth about this relatively new truck, that I love, giving me such huge expenditure so early on, especially on a component that is the subject of such controversy. I hardly see this magnetic ride as an improvement in ride quality, or lifespan. So I'm not sure where the improvement is.
  2. Hey all, I recently purchased a couple shallow mount subs, a subthump box, and an amp/wiring kit for my 2015 GMC Sierra SLE. I also purchased this line output converter to get the signal to the amp from the stock wiring. I searched for "line output converter" and literally nothing came up on the forum, so i'm curious if anyone knows the easiest place to tap into to get the subwoofer signal to the amp? I'd greatly appreciate any help! My truck is a 2015 GMC Sierra SLE, does NOT have the Bose factory system. PAC LP7-2: http://www.pac-audio.com/productDetails.aspx?ProductId=1188 Gear i'm adding: 2x Rockford Fosgate P3SD2-12 1x Power Acoustik EG1-2500D -- wired to 2 ohms, about 800w RMS total subthump dual 12" box w/ amp rack space Thanks! Captain
  3. Zane & Josh Merva The Merva Brothers - Co/Founders, GM-Trucks.com GM-Trucks.com is always trying to stay on the bleeding edge of General Motors vehicles and the aftermarket accessories that owners install on them. That’s why we occasionally purchase long term pickups to better understand the ownership experience of these extremely popular vehicles. Our last truck, a 2011 GMC Sierra All Terrain, continues to serve us well all these years later, but became outdated in 2014 when the K2 generation of trucks was produced. We never had a chance to purchase a 2014-2018 Silverado but had a half dozen close friends who let us work on theirs. So when GM announced that the 2019 model year Silverado and Sierra would be brand spankin' new, we knew we had to have one. Thus, a year long effort was set into motion during the Winter of 2017-2018. Internally, GM-Trucks.com declared war on the 2019 Silverado. We could cover it, we would own it, we would be THE place for owners of the T1XX generation to call home. To do that, we had to have one ourselves. We saw the surprise unveiling, followed trim level news, ordering information, factory startup, placed an order the first day we could, then waited (not so) patiently for it to arrive. In September 2018 we took delivery of our new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ. Here it is a few seconds after the first time we saw it. What’s the plan? We’re going to make our new Silverado work for us and you. Over the next few years we plan on transforming our truck, installing loads of aftermarket parts, and reviewing everything in the process. Our thought process behind this Project Truck is simple. We originally wanted to buy a Silverado Trail Boss but found that Chevy wouldn’t let us get it with the all new 6.2L V8. That engine and the brand new 10-speed transmission was reserved for those who purchased an LTZ or High Country. With the 6.2L being more important, we acquiesced and ordered a more expensive LTZ instead. Thus, our mission to replicate the Trail Boss’s off-road stance and beefed up attitude but with a legendary 6.2L engine and a more luxurious take on things was born. We've decided to call it…. Project Trail Beast More than just a name, Project Trail Beast is a set of core vehicle modification goals that we’d like to accomplish with our 2019 Silverado LTZ. The ultimate goal is to create the truck that Chevy should have made… a Trail Boss with a 6.2L engine. Thankfully, we’re not bound by factory parts anymore, so we can go a little more hardcore than Chevy would have. Our goals include: Suspension Lift: We’ll take our Silverado and raise it a modest 2-4 inches. More aggressive tires are a requirement and aftermarket rims are being considered to complement the higher stance without sacrificing driveability. Beefed Up Performance: 420-horsepower stock isn’t bad…. but isn’t nearly enough. We’ll explore adding a supercharger to our 6.2L and work with leading brands to install performance intake and exhaust systems. We’ll also check in on the custom tuning scene and how the 2019 models can be modified on the inside. Updated Lighting: Even though most of our Silverado has high tech LED lighting, there are still some conventional bulbs. We’ll replacement all with the latest LED tech and add additional illumination around our truck. Expect us to talk about and review industry players such as Sylvania and Baja Lights soon. Utility Accessories: We'll explore bed covers, floor mats, security products, custom keyed locks, ceramic coatings, and a wide range of other accessories that any truck owner may use or need on their vehicle. From Adams Polishes to Husky Liners, we’ll look at what works and what does not. GM Official Accessories: GM is upping their game and offering lots of performance and visual accessories right from the dealership. We opened up a parts account and immediately started buying. How do these products perform? Are they worth the price? We'll let you know Help Us Out! What Do You Want? Do you want a particular product reviewed? Can't decide on a truck safe? Or confused about Ceramic Coatings? Let us know! We’ll do our best to review anything we can on Project Trail Beast. Do you work for a company who has a product you’d like us to look at? We can do that too. What’s next? It's time to get installing. We have a fat pile of accessories we've already started to work on. Each product, each experience, we'll share with you. Stay tuned for more updates on Project Trail Beast.
  4. I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
  5. I have a grant steering wheel assembly, but I need more insight on how to install. Watched a bunch of videos but couldn't find a good one for what I doing.
  6. I have the 8" infotainment system in my 2014 Chevy Silverado. It can't be upgraded, and needs to be replaced for that reason. The last post on the topic was from 2016, and I think a lot has changed since then. Here's what I'm looking for: Needs: A unit that will snap in or integrate with the factory system. Integration with steering wheel controls. Apple Play CD/DVD Bluetooth Wants Integrated controller for 12v (think winch, lights, etc.) Ability to add front and side cameras (blind spot) Ability for a trailer camera (nice to have) All I can find is the Alpine i209-GM In-Dash Restyle System, which is $2k without the additional video inputs or controller. Total setup would be more than 5k. WAY out of my budget. Has anyone else been able to achieve this? I appreciate any thoughts you may have! Thanks!
  7. I installed a new JVC radio in my truck but both the driver and passenger speaker are not making any sounds. I suspect it's the wire harness not aligning with factory harness. Where can I find the right wiring diagram to rewiring the aftermarket wiring harness?
  8. Just bought a 2010 silverado. no usb ports, do all radios have that capability to be added or how do i check
  9. I have a 2002 Sierra Z71. I see a lot of options online for aftermarket headlights, but the reviews are terrible. Does anyone have a link to some known GOOD options? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey guys, I want to work on my truck and upgrade it but i dont know what i should do. What are some things you have done to your engine and drive train to enhance performance and add durability? *I drive a 2014 LTZ 5.3
  11. So I tried searching in the forum and I'm not sure if it's working right, but I only found one post that addressed this, but the OP I guess gave up on it. I apologize if this post is a repeat. I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 AT and I love everything about it.... except a couple of things I'm working on adding (leveling kit (done), larger tires (done), trailer brake, wireless charger, any mods I can do to the touch screen, etc.). One of those would be a trailer brake control. I would really like to avoid having to use an aftermarket switch, but in doing the research, the wiring harness in the truck won't allow for the addition of the factory module and I don't want to have to try to figure out how to reprogram the ECU to show up on the dash. So, I have to go aftermarket. I purchased the Hopkins Insight controller to try to avoid having the bulky box near my legs but got to thinking how I can adapt the factory switch (which I ordered) to work with the Hopkins controller. First issue, there's a third button for the Hopkins that the OEM module doesn't have, which isn't a big deal, I can figure that one out. Second, and main issue, is the rheostat or slider switch. I will end up doing some testing on it but I wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with this or might know where I can find the specifications or diagrams for both the OEM switch and the Hopkins. My goal is to hide as much of this aftermarket install as I can, minus the display and third button. @pgamboa I thankfully stumbled upon your videos awhile back and was wondering where you obtained your electrical connectors? I want to be able to attach the factory switch as clean as possible and wanted to try to find the right connectors. Thank you!

  13. Hey Guys, I have a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 and have been looking for an aggressive and mean looking aftermarket grille but can't really seem to find anything anywhere. I have searched the forum aswell but did not find anything. Do you guys have any recommendation for particular brands or any websites? As well are there any recommendations for other mods? My truck is fairly stock and just been looking to change it up a bit without breaking the bank! Anything would help, Thanks
  14. looking for amp install locations and ideas in my 2015 sierra 2500 cc. not enough room behind the rear seats and cant afford to lose any room in the back!
  15. I have an '04 Silverado Z71, and want to replace the stock tail light assemblies with new aftermarket assemblies. I want to retain the OEM incandescent bulbs, but want a clear lens. My OEM tail lights are cracked and have deteriorated to where they look like fogged lights, rather than a clean looking finish. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
  16. My good friend (an F-150 owner) told me that if I was going to get rims, I should always go OEM manufacturer with it instead of going after market. He said, "aftermarket rims look ghetto". I went on Chevy's website and they have a couple of sets of 20" and 22" rims that I REALLY LIKE. Haven't seen anything comparable on line. Does anyone know of any sweet aftermarket rim companies? I don't want to get the Chevy OEM's cuz they're SUPER EXPENSIVE!!!
  17. I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga. Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best. - I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock. - Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being 2wd. - Change to an aftermarket air intake. - Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit. - How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit - Exhaust? - How to get more performance from the truck. Anything would help, Thanks

  19. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/30/2016 Are you looking for an easy to complete home project that will give your new Silverado or Sierra a little kick in the pants? Cold Air Inductions has an intake system designed for your truck that’s not only easy to install but adds a custom look under the hood, too. Before vs After Product: CAI Cold Air Intake System for 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra with the 5.3L V8 Manufacturer: Cold Air Inductions Suggested Retail Price: $429.99 Product Website: CAI - 2014-2016 5.3L Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Intake System (Textured Black Finish) Features +12-horsepower +6 ft-lbs of torque Up to +3 MPG increase in fuel economy Aluminum Insulated Air Box Removable Box Lid with filter viewing window 4-inch thermal coated intake tube High-performance air filter Made in the USA No tune required Unboxing Our CAI Intake System came in securely shipped in a single cardboard box. The entire intake came in only a few pieces and without any small or loose parts. We found the items inside packaged well and free of damage. Inside we found the cold air intake box, a black coated metal snorkel tube, a rubber joint with vacuum hose hookups, and a pre-oiled cone filter. All hardware was already assembled or attached to the parts. Installation We installed this intake on a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L V8. If you know how to work a screwdriver, a socket/ratchet combination, and are not afraid to have to climb into the hood of your truck, we think you would have no problem completing this installation at home in your own driveway. A topside creeper would make this easier but is not required. A tool set that includes hex bits and socket extensions is required. We started off the process of removing the stock air box and plenum by disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery. We then removed the brace that runs over the battery to gain more room to work and carefully pulled the mass airflow sensor (MAF) out of the factory snorkel. Do not disconnect the MAF sensor. We next disconnected the two stock vacuum hoses that run into the valve covers. We also loosened the clamp that holds the stock intake to the throttle body and removed the resonator box. Then we snuggly pulled up to pop the factory air filter box out of place. We also transferred a rubber grommet from the factory box to the CAI intake shroud. This was perhaps the most difficult part of the install. We eventually had to cover the rubber grommet with dawn detergent to be able to push it in the hole on the shroud. It’s a snug fit, so be careful not to bend anything. The CAI air filter box then simple snaps back into the location where the factory air box was removed. We then secured the new rubber connection joint to the throttle body and reconnected the vacuum tubes to the tops of the valve covers. After slipping on the intake tube and attaching the cone air filter, we were nearly complete with our install. After carefully reinstalling the MAF sensor and applying the CAI Decals, we reattached the intake lid. After reinstalling the cross brace and reconnecting the negative terminal of the battery, we were done. Our total install time was approximately 30 minutes. Here lies the remains of the stock intake system. Results It only takes a turn of the key to hear the difference between the factory intake and CAI’s cold air system. The cold air intake offers a deeper, throatier sound at full throttle compared to stock. At idle, there’s no difference. On the road this Silverado sounds like a new beast. Air intake noise is much louder and right after pushing the peddle down you can hear a rush of air enter the plenum. While the stock intake is designed to hush the sound of air rushing through the throttle body, CAI’s cold air intake system accentuates it. As a result, the engine sound that comes from under the hood is slightly deeper, has more attitude, and sounds louder. So, does a cold air intake make any difference with how your truck performs? Since we didn't do before and after dyno tests we are not in a position to substantiate any claims of improved performance. There are many independent tests and even members here that have indeed seen horsepower and torque improvements when dyno'd. MPG numbers are a lot more difficult to test, but there are many people who claim improved mileage. What we will say is that as users of various cold air intake systems over the past few years, we have enjoyed benefits from every single one, regardless of which vehicle they’ve been installed on. The easiest difference to spot with the CAI system is how it makes the engine on this 2015 Chevrolet Silverado pop! The stock factory plastic is dull and covers up much of the engine. The CAI intake is slim, well designed and made from quality materials. The clear plastic window shows almost the entire air filter, making inspection a snap. Conclusion Are you ready to make some small changes to your truck that give it a more custom look? Maybe you want your engine to be a little louder and have a touch of attitude at the same time. Perhaps you just hate the look of the stock intake and want to spice up your engine bay. The CAI Intake system solves those issues and gives you a quality made-in-America intake that you can install yourself. This product was provided in exchange for our objective and unbiased review.
  20. New to the forum, just migrated from a 2000 BMW 540i to a 2015 Chevy Silverado, but I live in Texas, so this is normal. I wanted to share some photos of aftermarket leather I had put in today. I got a great deal of good ideas from here so I thought I would contribute. Also, if you have interior modifications, please share. I know there are tons of threads on exterior modifications but not as much on what you folks are doing with the interior! The leather is from Katzkin and the main color is Java. Let me know your thoughts. Also, the price installed was $1,260 for those comparing cost.
  21. I was looking into getting some spyder headlights for my 14 silverado, i was wondering if anyone is running these lights and if they are any good. http://www.spyderauto.com/product.php?id=PRO-YD-CS14-LBDRL-BK any pics and input are greatly appreciated, thank you
  22. Has anybody ordered these yet? I just saw them listed as a new product on the Anzo website. They sell two versions: white U-Bar DRL and white/amber switchback U-Bar DRL. These are the best looking aftermarket headlights I've seen besides the oem 2017 headlights. It says they fit in 2014-2017 Sierras. If anyone has installed them, does the U-Bar come on as the DRL, or does the headlight bulb have to be on?
  23. I have a question, what is the biggest tire size you can fit on a 20X12 -44 wheel with just a leveling kit? i know this is a long shot but i want to stay leveled with a wide stance. Thanks in advance
  24. Hello fellow GM truck owners. My pops owns a 2015 Silverado LT and he's been talking about getting some new headlights and I figured it would be a perfect father day gift if I just got them for him. I would love some feedback on what you guys would suggest. He's picky when it comes to his truck (as most of us are) and he says he would want some light blue almost white kind of beam not blinding bright but at least as bright or a bit brighter than stock. I am pretty sure the stock ones are just regular halogens (don't quote me on that) but I am also not sure wether to go HID or LED. It's very specific but any feedback is welcomed! Pics would be appreciated Thanks.
  25. Hello fellow GM-T members. Been a while since I've been on here so I thought I would share a pocket-book hurting learning here. I took a quick breeze through and couldn't find a similar topic or pinned item about "blacklist" items. If this is a duplicate or not in the right area, feel free to relocate or delete if I'm breaking some forum rule here by posting this. I just wanted to pass along some advice to fellow forum members looking to upgrade their stock headlight assemblies....whether for performance improvement or appearance update. In my case, although I felt the OEM headlights and bulbs were pretty decent from the get-go, I was looking to upgrade. I purchased the attached product off of e-bay and shall leave the seller unnamed. To me, they were the best looking halo/projector combo. Personal preference anyway. So they arrived before Christmas and I installed them around new years. This past week I started using my truck again as a daily driver in the dark and let me tell you, I was very disappointed. The issue with them is: - beam angle from projector low beams is pointed much to far down to be useful. they did come with adjustment screw which I quickly cranked up to max but still no where NEAR where it needs to be. managed to strip some component in there as well. Screw is metal but feels like it's turning something plastic inside. - even where it does light up after the adjustment, it is still pretty weak looking compared to factory In my other pics, I am attempting to show that it only lights up about 45 ft ahead of me on the road......not even a single tractor-trailer length. In one shot you'll see an SUV ahead of me. The wide angle lense on my phone is deceiving as that vehicle is only about 60 ft ahead of me. That's where the beam literally cuts off. I can't even rely on some stray remaining light beam that WOULD exist with a halogen/standard reflector setup. If there were a piece of 4x4 lumber laying across the highway at 45 feet ahead of me, and I'm travelling at the standard 75 mph where I live (108 ft/second) you can see just how much reaction time I have with these. GARBAGE. I read a few users a while back had some DEPO headlights that are essentially stock lights (mirror reflectors) but with black bezeling. I think I'm going to give those a try. Anyone else have them? I attached a reference pic of those as well. Thanks!
