  1. Hey all, I installed the OEM black GMC letters on my AT4 this weekend and thought I would pass this shortcut along. If you don't mind being a bit destructive and want to take the easy route - just pry the red insert off of the factory emblems and it exposes the retaining clips. Insert a screw driver and they pop right off. No grill removal required. I had one or two tangs that didn't immediately snap back in on the new emblems. apply a bit of pressure to the grill tab with either your finger or a flat blade screw driver from behind until it clicks. You are good to go.
  2. 2016-2018 GMC Sierra Elevation grille that's been professionally painted black. This is a brand new OEM grille. I bought it from a member on here, but also decided to go with a different grille. The grille itself looks fantastic, the only reason for going with another grille is I have seen another truck identical to mine with the same grille, and I want to have something different... $500 shipped. Only asking what I paid for it. Current location: 54016 Thanks!
  3. Set of 4 Midnight Edition wheels and tires. 2k miles. I'd like to trade for a set of black CK156 or something similar. I can throw in cash for the right deal. For Sale price - Make offer
  4. I am in process of blacking out my 2014 Sierra Crew Cab. I have the chrome window trim at the moment. I see GM sells the Chrome for $450 and the Black plastic for $185. I am hoping I can find someone that wants to make a trade plus some cash. Or... you have black takes offs and already have chrome installed I'll but them direct and sell my chrome take offs separately.
  5. **SOLD** 2016-2018 GMC Sierra Elevation grille that's been professionally painted black. This is a brand new OEM grille. I ordered it and decided to go with a different style grille, absolutely nothing wrong with this grille. Shipping to continental US is free, local pick-up near St Louis MO. Price is $500.
  6. I recently purchased a 2019 Denali 1500 in the Satin Steel Metallic color. I want to pick up some black wheels for it and contemplating the 22" High Gloss Black Wheels GM offers. It's hard to tell what it will look like and looking for some other black wheel options potentially. Anyone have the same color/model truck that could post some pictures or offer suggestions on other aftermarket black wheels that look nice? Thanks!
  7. ChuckTaylors27 3 Posted 18 hours ago Has anybody had any issues with BlackBear Autocal that was not a user problem? Anything specifically pertaining to ECU lockup? I heard about that happening on an 8 speed dodge but was okay on the 6 speed dodge. From what I hear and what I read, blackbear is the way to go. Mostly what I am looking for is drivability and to tighten the hell out of my transmission as I just put a new one in. Other things id like to take care of is the Active Fuel Management, Torque Management System, and change up my stabilitrak/TC preferences. Im not so concerned with running e85 or premium tunes as what I can tell being stock it really won't make a huge difference in engine preservation. Does anybody have any experiences or knowledge to share for what I will see in the future choosing BlackBear, or maybe some suggestions to add to my list for Justin? Thanks guys

  9. Bought end of July 2017. 2016 Silverado Custom 4wd Double Cab Standard Bed with 18500 miles. It came with 20% tints and 20" chrome rims. I almost instantly removed the front valence. The next few posts (all todays date) are going to be out of order since I'm doing this thread 1 year into owning it.
  10. Hey so im looking for all black emblems for my 2018 silverado z71 ltz, i was wondering if anyone knows where i can get these or how to make this happen? Ive found “silverado ltz” in all black but cant find the side “z71” on the doors, the all black bow ties or the small all black z71 in the grill..
  11. Item: 2016+ GMC Sierra Grille (Black) Condition: Brand New OEM Location: St. Louis, MO Description: Professionally painted GMC Sierra Grille that is a brand new take-off from an Elevation trim Sierra. It's factory matched to the Onyx Black paint code. I decided to go with a different grille and have this in the factory box.

  12. I had been using Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer for a while but not happy with how it sometimes lingered on my black paint. So I recently switched to Griot's Garage Speed Shine and am satisfied with the results. What do you guys prefer for Quik wipe and detail products? What works best on our Black trucks?
  13. Here’s my 2015 Silverado 1500 LTZ 4x4. Got a 6 inch Trailmaster lift with 24 inch replicas and 37 inch rbps. Should I do a gear change? If so, what?
  14. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273226034501?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649 Selling my brand new track grill still in the box if anyone is interested. This custom made grille is an exceptional eye catcher that will be sure to get you many looks, stares, and compliments. The grill has the word duramax in it, therefore it more so compliments the Diesel engine. Grille is brand new, still in the box. Also comes with 2 light bars already installed; with wiring harness.
  15. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 3-23-2018 GMC says that about one in five of its customers spends money on aftermarket exterior treatments. Rather than see those dollars going elsewhere, GMC is offering a variety of special exterior treatment editions of its vehicles. The latest is the GMC Terrain and Acadia Black Editions. GMC sees the Black Editions as OEM black-out treatment vehicles with a more distinctive personality. Both new styles launch this summer. “The new Terrain and Acadia Black Editions perfectly capture the identity of the GMC brand by offering a bold and confident exterior appearance,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “They give our customers more choices within the premium SUV segment to distinguish their vehicle and themselves.” Terrain Black Edition (Available on SLE & SLT) Features 19-inch gloss black aluminum wheels Darkened grille insert and black surround Black mirror caps, roof rails and additional exterior accents Black exterior model and trim badging Offered in five exterior colors: Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, Graphite Gray Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic and, new for 2019, Sedona Metallic** Acadia Black Edition (Available on SLT) 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with black accents Black grille insert and black surround Black headlamp and taillamp details Black mirror caps, roof rails and additional exterior accents Offered in five exterior colors: Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, White Frost Tricoat and, new for 2019, Dark Sky Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic
  16. Hello, I recently installed OEM Chevrolet black bowties on my 2016 Silverado. Though I was unable to make a video recording the process, I did find a lot of shortcuts along the way that may be helpful to others. Below is a guide of how to do the swap yourself. -------------------------------------------------- ***Front Bowtie Removal/Install (30 min or less, 10 if you know what to look for):*** - To remove the front bowtie, Chevrolet recommends that you remove the entire front grille assembly. however, I found this is not necessary. If you lay underneath the front of the truck, you will see a plastic cover that fills the gap between the front bumper and the frame to cover the bottom side of the radiator from debris. - There are three (3) plastic body molding/trim molding connectors that will need to be removed (one in the center and one to either side about 18 inches out). I found the best way to do this was with a short bladed flat head screw driver and both hands. Simply put, force will coerce the pins out of their plug holders. - Once those are removed you will be able to stick your arm through the underside of the radiator protector and feel the four (4) tabs and two (2) pins that hold the front emblem to the grille. - To remove the emblem, I used a key (spare, cheap one) to push the tabs outward from the center while pushing away from the front with my hand to pop the tab out of the clip area. I suggest starting from one side and making your way to the other. This did take slightly more force than I expected, so do not be afraid to push outward and away from the grille. - Once all 4 tabs are free, you should be able to get out from under the front and remove the emblem completely from the front of the grille. - The new, black bowtie, should snap right in!!! No glue or tape needed! **The 2016 Silverado 1500 uses a different front emblem than the 14 or 15 models, make sure you purchase the proper emblems for your truck!!! ---------------------------------------- ***Rear Bowtie Removal/Install (1 hour or so, if done right):*** - First, gather the necessary tools to complete the job: Hair dryer or Heat gun, 2 microfiber towels, WD40, Goo B Gone, Fishing line (I used 50LB line, right size and strength, but you can used the guts of parachute cord and i have heard of dental floss, but that seemed silly), isopropyl alcohol, water, painters tape, plastic scraping blade/tool, small amount of gasoline (explained later) - Using the painters tape, outline the emblem on all 4 sides, careful to follow all the edges as close as possible. This will stay there until the new emblem is placed, serving as your guide lines. - Disclosure: I removed the back emblem on a 93 degree day, my truck is dark colored, and I used a hair dryer. Other conditions may require longer heating time. Heat the emblem to soften the adhesive backing on the emblem making it easier to remove (yes this actually makes it easier). Use your own judgment, heat until you think it is ready, just don't overheat. - Using the fishing line (or whatever you have), begin at one corner and slice through the backing. I would do an inch or so at a time and then reheat the nest area I was removing. This process took about 7-10 minutes to get off completely. - If you are lucky (like hit the lottery lucky), the adhesive backing will come off with the emblem, and there will not be much left on the tailgate. But, if yours is anything like mine, the adhesive will be stuck on the tailgate. spray this with WD40 and/or Goo B Gone, allow to soak momentarily, and use the scraping tool to remove the thickest parts of the adhesive back. There will be leftover glue on the tailgate. - You can play around with WD40/Goo B Gone to get the rest off, or you can be like me and take it off in seconds. This is where that gasoline comes into play. Using one of your microfiber towels, apply a liberal amount of gas and the glue should come right off. This should not harm the paint at all, as long as you clean it off within a day. - Now that you have the glue and adhesive backing removed, you need to sterilize the area to put the new emblem on. Mix a one to one mixture of the rubbing alcohol and water. Using the other microfiber towel, wipe the area clean. The alcohol will dissolve the WD40 and Goo B Gone and anything else that would prevent good adhesion. Clean until you are satisfied. - The area should be ready to be fitted with the new emblem now. I would perform some dryfits, with the adhesive backing cover still on so that you get a feel for where it should go. Then, remove the film, and slowly and carefully place the new emblem. Make sure and press firmly once positioned to ensure good adhesion. - Step back and admire your work. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Here are some pictures of my success! (I also added the OEM GM backup camera that my truck did not come with. If you need one like I did, I can tell you about that process too! I have a big hitch on, and backing into every spot, since I hate backing out, was getting risky.)

  19. New to the forum. Just bought my first Chevy in over 15 years and absolutely love it! I have a 2017 Black Silverado, Double Cab, LTZ, Z71, 6.5' bed. I am in the process of Chrome deleting/covering. After purchasing the truck I have made the following changes: Swapped 20" chrome for 22" Tahoe style black. wheels, mud flaps, black mirror covers, black door handle covers, black tailgate handle covers, swapped factory chrome window moldings for black, and Bestop tri-fold cover. I really like the all black look, but I want to stick with the gloss black, not matte. I still want to replace the antenna, the front grille assembly with Midnight Edition or something similar (no chrome) and change out the chrome "skid plate" on the lower front bumper with black. I am looking for help with a couple of things: A part number or source for the grille and skidplate. I have seen a couple of numbers for the grill but they all seem to be discontinued and I cannot find any info at all on a black skid plate for the lower bumper. Anyone who is interested in a chrome/black parts swap. I have the original chrome window moldings that I would like to sell Thanks and look forward to being a Chevy owner for a long time to come!

  21. Hey, I have been to the dealership twice and I have called GM; however my problem stills persists. They say there is nothing they can do. I have very good ears and can hear high frequencies. My 2015 GMC Sierra makes a very high pitched noise whenever I am switching to and from 4WD. When the truck is in 4WD It continues to make the noise while I'm driving. However, When i put the truck back in 2WD the noise disappears. Any suggestions? It has almost gotten to the point where I don't want to use 4WD because it is so damn loud. Thanks guys.
  22. Does anyone know where I can buy fender flares for a 2005 GMC Sierra stepside? I cannot find anything at all? I can find fender flares for older trucks, fords, rangers, s10's, but not sierras!!! Stepside beds are forerunners to fleetside beds too!!!! They have been around longer!!!! I don't get why I can't find anything about Stepside bed fender flares! Please help!!!
  23. I put new spark plugs in my truck, and didn't know the torque specs for them. I have the L33, which is aluminum. I looked up the torque specs, and got the confused with a 5.7 vortec, which is cast iron. The torque specs for the 5.7 are 25ft-lbs, and the L33 is 13ft-lbs or in that area. You think I overtightened them? I put Bosch platinum 4's in. It isn't misfiring at the moment, but it had kind of a rough start this morning, but it's a little cold out, like 40's. I'm just learning and preparing myself for when I screwed myself for the stupid torque specs.
