  1. You know you’ve done it. The questionable mod. The cheesie accessory. If it’s over the top, it belongs here. Little dog with blinker eyes? Giant emblems? Ridiculous paint? Goofy wheels wider than your tires?Trash can lid subs? Cursive writing in your tint? Welcome home. Let’s not forget performance mods... Garbage can lid hood scoop? Chrome stacks? Grandma’s emphysema O2 tank injection? We got you. Let’s see them all. There is NO SHAME too great. You know you’ve got a fin in the garage somewhere. “We’re all about the downforce” If you show me yours... I’ll show you mine. Heck, I’ll even start. Late 1960’s fender emblem. I removed the plastic and drilled the radiator support so it would sit flush. Yup, I suck. ”But, but, I’m proud of my engine, honey.” “The guy’s all think it’s cool”. She shook her head so hard, I thought the marbles would rattle out her ears. She’s got no Tegrity.
  2. Hello, I've been reading around on different forums about removing the front bumper air dam and how fuel economy is affected. I have a 2017 Silverado Z71 with 1500 miles, and am just wondering if there is a noticeable gas mileage difference? I've read that pretty much everything GM does from the air dam to ecm tuning is to maximize fuel efficiency, but I am not sure how much effect they actually have? I've also read that resetting the ECM by doing a reboot (unhook negative terminal from battery) will reset the adaptive learning feature and help with transmission shift points and improve fuel efficiency but is this actually true? Will a reboot improve anything or will the adaptive learning eventually just take you back to the same shift points? The nature of this question is that it seems that coming out of turns or starting an up hill ascent the transmission doesn't seem to find the correct gear quickly. It also feels like I don't get the pep engine power I feel like I should be getting with 355hp and 383ftlb? I don't want to buy a tune and risk voiding my factory warranty. Any help or suggestions? Thanks
  3. Hi all, Yes, I did a search about air dam removal Silverado 1500 2016-2017 and the results were inconclusive. My vehicle - 2016 reg cab 2wd with G80 locker. Traction not a problem for what I do. But was at a construction site a few days ago - hard pack clay, rutted, a few dips, but nothing major. D----d if I wasn't snowplowing on the front end. So I checked the threads - inconclusive about how to get the thing off without cutting, then there's the issue about the license plate mount. For an interim - how much is involved just to remove the lower valence? A 4wd would have had the same issue as my 2wd 'cause they're the same in the front. What I need is front end clearance. Don't want to do a space lift, as I don't know what it will do to ride/steering geometry. Down the road could go to Fox or King coil-overs, but that probably involves new control arms and additional front end geometry corrections. Gotta do something before I head out to the Gila Wilderness and National Forest in NM. Not necessarily 4wd roads, but they will be rutted with some steep descents. Looking for advice. FWIW, I noticed the new Colorado ZR2 did away with the air dam!
  4. Well I recently went off-road with some friends and I sort of bent the front plastic air dam (truck isn't lifted yet)is it possible to bend it back with a heat gun or should I just get a new one or should I just take it off all together. I'm sort of bummed that it happened but I don't know what to do. Will there be any major effects if I take the plastic air dam off in the front ? All replies will be greatly appreciated as always.
