  1. Got a 07 Silverado 1500 classic crew cab with the short bed 5.8ft. Need to replace my bed but having trouble finding another short bed. does anyone know if I could put the regular 6ft bed on and will the wheel wheel/fuel filler neck, and bolts line up? thank you
  2. Had a Bullet Liner installed today! Super happy with it. Had one on a previous truck with no issues, plus it was half the cost of Line-X with the same lifetime warranty.
  3. What are people using for bike racks in the bed? I'd prefer the bed over the hitch. Thanks
  4. So I made a new carpeted 2x4 for the 2019. The bed is wider in the new body so my old one just won’t due.
  5. First let me ask...2015 Duramax 3500, am I posting under 2014-2018 Silverado or here? 2014-2018 doesn’t exclude 2500 and 3500s. So what separates a 2014 2500 from a 2015 2500 that it shouldn’t be 2014-2019? Far as I can tell the improvements between the two models were very small and minor. In fact the 2014 was the first year they had the inset door design which to me reflects updated body style so seems like belongs here! Educate me everyone!!!! I went into a muddy ditch at 35-40 mph and sideswiped a hill on the driver side. Side damage was relatively minor with some pushed in lower panels but I initially hit the hill with the front driver side and then the rear of the truck swung up against it. I would say I hit it at about a 10° angle, maybe 15. My Warn Gen 2 Transformer winch mount with headlight / grille guard absorbed the vast majority (90%) of the impact and saved my truck from having a HELL of a lot more front end damage and the air bag from exploding that’s for sure!!!! I was initially happy about that. Then, I got to thinking HARD about the airbag NOT exploding... another subject for another day about the dangers of winch mounts! Was a little worried though because on the passenger side of the cargo bed there’s just one little small spot at the front and top where the sheet-metal is protruding / creased as if you were Superman and took your thumb and pushed, with an indentation on the driver side in the same area, telling me the bed had some weird action going on internally. But just now I am noticing if you stand on the rear passenger side and look straight towards the front the bed has shifted 3/4”-1” towards the driver side so the rear of the crew cab is sticking out. On the driver side you can’t see any of the crew cab at all and if you lay your hand on top of both between the two it feels perfectly level. I have no idea how the rear of the bed lines up but for now I would say it looks like only the front of the bed has shifted. Because I’m doing the repairs myself I’m curious if there are any kind of adjustments there, like could I loosen all the bolts up on the frame and shift it back? Did they leave room for adjusting and the impact moved it or is it a one way only bolt onto frame and this is possibly an indication of something more serious like the frame bent just a tad??? 2015 WT Duramax 3500 SRW Crew 4x4
  6. This may have already been posted, but I couldn't find it... From 04-19 the bed size of the Chevy Silverados are very similar. Less than 1.3" in either direction for the 5'8" Crew Cab beds. We have purchased 14-18 covers that fit perfectly on 2019's. With a measurement, I could determine if I should purchase two of the 04-06 covers for our other 2019 trucks. Here's the inside dimensions I have found online for the trucks: 04-06: 68.13" x 63.19" 07-13: 68" x 63.63" 14-18: 69.33" x 62.33" All of the covers that I have purchased will overlap the side rails by about 2" and tailgate by a little more, which in theory would mean that they would fit various trucks just fine. The problem is that none of the sellers post the exact dimensions, nor will they give that information when asked. I suppose this is so that buyers will have to buy the more expensive covers for the newer year trucks. The same covers, made from the exact same materials vary in price from $299 to nearly $900 from vendor to vendor and year to year. I understand supply and demand, but this simply feels like price gouging. Anyone have any experience with this? I have put the 14-18 covers on 2019 trucks, and they fit just fine. Just wondering if the plethora of 04-06 $299 covers are of similar size. Anyone know?
  7. Just bought '14 Silverado LT Crew Cab 6.5' Bed a month ago - 45,XXX miles, no accidents reported. (Side note, A/C already went out). Love the truck, but when looking at it from the rear it looks like the tailgate is angled down to the right, like the right rear of the bed sags. The toolbox at the front of the bed is perfectly level, but looking from the rear the tool box line and tailgate line do not match up. Am I being nit-picky or is this something that can be fixed? Any idea why it would be sagging in the rear of the bed, but not in the front? Didn't notice it until about 2 weeks after I bought it, and I see it every time I walk behind my truck now.
  8. For anyone who's added their own lighting to their truck bed, what was your choice to powering them on? I tried adding a magnetic switch to the tailgate so that whenever it'd open the lights would come on. Wiring was done as instructions said and spent hours on it trying to get it to work. But I was left with the option with turning them on whenever I hit the Cargo light button inside the Cab.
  9. I had line-x in the past and was always happy, but wanted something that fit my needs better. We do a lot of camping and often sleep in the bed of the truck. I didn't really want one of those air mattresses (the wife can't sleep on them...and she doesn't let me either ) So, in an effort to keep mama happy I took a chance on what I thought was " padded carpet". BOY WAS I WRONG! The vehicle unique form fitting spun plastic is extremely soft and easy on my old joints. NOW on to why I decided to post this review... I had a gas can in the bed of the truck and by the time I made it over to fill the lawn mower, I had gas all over the bed of my truck. I know, I know, I'm the idiot who didn't secure the can. The wife was pissed and said I would have to buy a new one. Being the stubborn old goat I am, I decided I would fix it. Some Simple Green and my pressure washer worked great. Granted, I had to wash and let it dry 3 times, but there is no trace of a gasoline smell. So, was it a horrible idea? Not at all! This thing is wonderful!
  10. Hello Everyone, I just purchased a Chevy Silverado 2500. It would be a longbed if it had a bed on it.... I have seen plenty of beds for sale that were left when someone installed a flatbed or service body. I did not expect it to be any trouble finding a decent replacement. I was wrong....... I have been online & on the phone all day. I am finding lots of Ford and Dodge beds and a few 2008-2014 Chevy beds. I am begining to wonder if I can reasonably fit a 2008+ bed on my 2004 truck? Is anyone here familiar enough with the mounting of the beds to tell me what would be involved with putting the 2008-2014 bed on my 2004 truck? Thanks. S.
  11. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7-26-2018 Chevrolet’s 2019 Silverado has best-in-class cargo volume, box depth, box length at floor, and also a class-leading 12 fixed tie-downs. Coupled with its power up/down tailgate, Chevy now lays claim to the most function al bed of any pickup truck. The bed is now also made from a higher-quality, higher-strength steel. Chevy calls this cargo bed the “Durabed.” “The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience,” said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors. In addition to Silverado’s now has 12 fixed tie-downs the strength of each of these has doubled from 250 lbs. to 500 lbs. of force before bending. There are also nine other moveable tie-down points. In total, these 21-total tie-downs located at various heights are the most of any full-size pickup. Silverado also has new larger cutouts in the CornerStep bumpers to better accommodate steel-toed boots. Every Silverado has a top of cab rear light and in-bed LED lighting and a 110/120-volt power outlet are available. For 2019 the Silverado 1500 will also be available with four tailgate variants: -Standard gate: a manual gate with no lift assist; manually lockable (with key) -Standard Gate with Lift Assist: a stamped gate that includes lift assist; manually lockable (with key) -Power Lock/Release: includes lift assist and automatic release; power lockable -Industry-exclusive power up/down: available on the LTZ and standard on High Country, the tailgate raises or lowers using the key fob, touchpads on the gate or button in the cabin. Includes lift assist, automatic release and power closing; power lockable
  12. I am installing two led pods on my rear bumper, 2016 silverado 1500. I want to splice these pods to the cargo lights & bed led lights I have so the inside cargo switch in my center council will turn them on and off. I'm looking for a model that would allow me to turn all 3 lights on and off without needing to be I'm park... Is that possible? Appreciate and guidance! Thanks everyone! Funk
  13. Hi all, Next weekend I am going to be replacing the bed on my wife's 2007 Sierra 1500 (115k miles). The old one is rusty, and I picked up a new one for a amazing deal. while the bed is off, ill clean up the frame. I have been researching this, however I still have a few questions, I hope you guys can help me with: Are there 4 or 6 bolts? I can only find 4. Is it worth replacing the fuel pump? What Size are the bolts? Do I have to remove the bumper? Is this a fairly quick job? Thanks!
  14. I have a 13 Sierra extended cab 4x4. 17 yr old kid backed up and destroyed my passenger quarter-up to bed rail, taillight, and bumper. If I were to buy a 6.5 bed off a single cab would it fit? Or a bed off a non 4x4 truck would it fit. Same model years 07-13? Looking to save money do it ourselves and have their insurance cut the check to pay it off vs repairing it because it will never be to my satisfaction.

  16. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-14-2018 One point of emphasis in last night’s Chevrolet Silverado launch was the cargo bed area improvements. Chevy seems to have taken great care to make not just the strongest cargo area, but the most functional. The 2019 Silverado will feature the most cargo volume in every bed length. The short-box will have 63 cubic feet of volume. Chevy says this new short box has “up to 20 percent more than a competitor’s short-box.” However, it isn’t just overall volume that improves. Chevy has also increased the maximum width of the bed by seven inches. Furthermore, Chevy will offer new lockable storage boxes that fit over the wheel wells and will still allow 4X8’ building materials to load flat on the floor. The twelve fixed and nine movable cargo area tie downs in the new Silverado will be twice as strong as competitors’ tie downs. Chevy is also doubling-down on steel as the cargo area material. Still roll-formed high-strength steel to maximum yield strength, a new alloy is used with even more resistance to damage. However, the tailgate is made of aluminum. Chevy made it no secret that it uses the best material for the job during its live launch. Corner step remains, but cutouts are now larger. The new Silverado will also be available with a class-exclusive fob-operated power up/down tailgate that can also be operated from the interior button or by hand. Other features will include available task lighting, a 120-volt power outlet.
