  1. Hello, I’m new to this forum so I’m not sure if this question has ever been posted? I have been looking all over the internet but just can’t seem to find an answer? I have a 2018 Silverado 1500 Custom And I was wondering if it’s possible to swap my grille to a Z71 grille? I’m not sure if the Z71 grille is a different shape then my front end? I’m not a big fan of the black honeycomb look being that I’m going for a more sleek all white look. (Need to paint doors and mirror caps) If I can’t swap grills does anyone know where I can buy the grille insterts from a z71 grille? first 2 pictures are of my truck and second is a picture of the Z71 grille I want.
  2. Looking for opinions on spray in bedliner's Rhino line VS vortex liners The rhinoline will cost me about 525 vortex around 600. What's the differences? What's better or worse? Thanks for opinions
  3. Looking at buying a Silverado next week. Went to the dealership and test drive a Z71 crew cab. Compared to my current vehicle, it drove very smooth. Do the rancho shocks make much of a difference in ride quality? Thanks!
  4. 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
  5. I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 LT Z71. On the factory grill, there are three gloss black "grill bars" that appear to be separate pieces from the flat black grill inserts. On the 2017 LTZ Z71, these three bars are chrome plated. I think that is a nice way to add just enough chrome to the grill to really make it pop, so to speak. Since I have not had the gril off of the truck, I am not sure how the gloss black grill bars are fastened on. Is there a way to remove them and replace them with the chrome versions? And if so, how would I obtain the chrome replacements without buying a complete LTZ Z71 grill from GM? Just for reference, here is a picture of my grill: And here is a picture of a LTZ Z71 grill. This is the look I am trying to achieve: I would really appreciate any input. Thanks
  6. I have a 2016 Silverado LT2 and do have the new style projector bulbs and LED running light strips in the reworked front end vs the 2015 style... but I like LED lights more than bulbs. Anyone have the smarts to have looked into it to know if the LTZ lights would plug and play into an LT? The LTZ has LED front signal lights and tail lights where the LT has bulbs. Not saying I will do it, but it would be nice to know if it's possible so my truck would have the same look as an LTZ. Thanks
  7. What up fella's. I've been back and forth the past few months with my dealership in regards to the severe vibration I'm having on my 2017 Silverado Z71 Crew cab. The vibration occurs between 74-84 mph. It rides worse than the 2011 I traded for it. I feel it in the steering wheel, the gas petal, seats and center console. My main concern is it vibrates the hell out of my daughter in her car seat, which tears me up inside. There is no way we can take her for long drives in it as it makes her physical irritable and sick. Here's a video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7giDNI70pTk&feature=youtu.be Last time I took it to the dealership, they rode forced the tires and did a "pico reading" and dealership stated "it is operating within the specified range" and there was nothing they could do for me. Funny thing is I actually rode with the Service Manager and Tech while doing this test and both of them said they felt the vibration/shaking but it rides better than other trucks. Such horse shit.. This is one of many issues I've had with it since I bought it; FE: replace full exhaust system due to bad flapper, removed "rail dust" in paint, replace mass airflow sensor within first week of purchase, replaced "gateway module" which took 30+ days in the shop. I purchased the truck last November and am honestly depressed I'm even having this issue to which no dealership can/wants to fix. Ive requested specifically requested to speak with a GM rep last time I was there which the service manager said ''I unfortunately don't know that info". You guys are my last resort, so I'm looking to see how I get in touch with the GM Rep to see what options I have before I get with a lawyer. Any help you guys can provide is greatly appreciated.
  8. Can anyone tell me where the vertical adjustment screws for the low beam projector on a 2016 suburban with stock halogens are? I recently retrofit the low beam bulbs (which are ridiculously dim) with Morimoto HIDs and need to lower the beams a bit. The Left/Right adjustment is on the back of the assembly, clearly marked and easy to find, but I have not been able to find any adjustment on the headlamp assembly for vertical adjustment, even after removing the plastic air dam that covers the top of the headlamp assemblies. Any suggestions/information much appreciated, Justin
  9. 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.)
  10. All installed the Stampede Original Riderz texture 8626-5 fender flares. Instructions not the best, no videos from manufacturer. However, I am very pleased with the fit and finish. The truck looks great and im sold. I will be contacting their customer service to give them feedback. My next search is for Mud flaps to go with the flares. I hoping I can use the Husky flaps. Attached before and after pics G
  11. I saw an advertisement for a 2017 Silverado LT Double Cab 4x4 for $229/month for 36 month, 10,000 miles per year, $2,000 due at signing. I wanted a higher milage lease so i called around and was quoted $270/month for 36 month, 12,000 miles per year, $2,000 due at signing. They said that after the month of August the incentives will change and those offers will expire. Does $270 sound like a good deal? Also, would you expect the deals to get better or worse as the year comes to an end. I'd assume better as they try to push the 2017 models off the lots for the 2018s.
  12. I've recently put 305/55r20 bfg ko2 tires on my 2014 silverado double cab 1500 with a 2" front level . I messaged BFG twice and got two VERY different answers when asking the exact same question and telling them my oem tire size/recommended pressure. One rep told me 50 psi and another told me 35 psi. The fact that I got two drastically different responses when giving the exact same question:supporting information, doesn't exactly make me want to trust their answers. I would think most 305/55/20 LT E load tires would have similar (probably not identical, but close enough to get a good ballpark number) load/per psi. I'm wanting to know what others have their 305/55r20 LT E load tires at to experience even/longer term wear. I've currently got mine at about 42 cold, and they seem to go to about 46 warm. It looks like the outside may be wearing a bit prematurely. But the BFG KO2 design may just be weird in that the outside of the tire's "base" of the tread seems to raise up. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  15. FS: OEM Z71 Wheels & Tires

    Hi guys, prob a longshot but if anyone is interested in the OEM Z71 wheel/tire setup I have a full set that Id like to part with. If you want just the wheels or just the tires let me know. Tires are Goodyear SR-A 265/65R18 Ive had them for a year and 6 months and they saw 20k pavement miles. I didnt so any offroading or anything else rigorous. At most saw a couple of gravel driveways. The wheels and tires both are taken care of, do not have any rash. It was freezing cold the day i took the pics when they were taken off but if bought i will clean them up before coming to you. No tpms or valves, but do have the lugs. Full album of pics here: https://imgur.com/a/6yeCp Meetup will probably be out of the question as I have rarely seen anyone on the forum in MT. Willing to ship but we both know it will be hefty, price wise. Thanks
  16. I just purchased a new 2015 (8 miles) Silverado LT (4x4, 4.3L v6). During the test drive all seemed great with the truck so I purchased it. Driving it for the past 2 weeks has been great, love it! That was until 800miles or so I started to notice a slight vibration through the steering wheel and cabin. The issue is not consistent as it comes and goes so I started to do a little research and see this is a problem with past models. I noticed in other threads that people believe the issue to be a drive shaft, ball joints or out of balance parts. Dealers have replaced multiple parts but it seems to be ongoing issues for others. Clearly GM has not resolved this issue but here is the troubleshooting I did. I noticed my tire pressure was low 35psi. I kept changing the pressure to see what would happen with the vibration. Below are my results. To keep the vibration to a minimum, I increased the pressure on all wheels to 45-46 PSI and have found that it vibrates the least at this pressure. It's NOT completely gone but it's a start I guess. I will be contact the dealer tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone else has noticed the vibration with tire pressure changes. I assume tires are the problem. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. 17inch wheels, Bridgestone Duler A/T P265/70R17 113S M+S Driver side front 35 Driver side rear 36 Passenger side front 37 Passenger side rear 37 Vibration between 58-63 Driver side front 41 Driver side rear 41 Passenger side front 41 Passenger side rear 41 Vibration between 63-68 Driver side front 45 Driver side rear 46 Passenger side front 45 Passenger side rear 45 Vibration (a lot less) 63-65 Driver side front 42 Driver side rear 46 Passenger side front 44 Passenger side rear 45 Vibration 65-70 Driver side front 44 Driver side rear 41 Passenger side front 44 Passenger side read 41 Vibration 63-68 Driver side front 43 Driver side rear 43 Passenger side front 43 Passenger side read 43 Vibration 64-66 Driver side front 43 Driver side rear 43 Passenger side front 43 Passenger side read 43 Vibration 64-66 - with out tonneau cover Driver side front 39 Driver side rear 39 Passenger side front 45 Passenger side read 45 Vibration 66-69 Driver side front 46 Driver side rear 45 Passenger side front 45 Passenger side read 45 Vibration (a lot less) 63-65
  17. Hey everyone! I'm new to this site and just got my 2017 Silverado LT 1500 last week. I did a search on this topic but came up empty. I love the headlights with the LED switchback strip on the LTZ, Z71, and High Country. I was wondering if anyone has tried or considered putting those on an LT package. Are the harnesses the same so it would be a simple plug-and-play or am I just having wishful thinking to think its that simple. If not plug-and-play, what kind of modifications would have to be done (or potential harness replaced) to make these lights work? Let me know your thought, concerns, or problems this upgrade may have. And if anyone has a picture of the wiring harness of the switchback LED strip headlight and could post it so we can compare the 2 to see if they are the same or even similar and what differences there are between the two headlights. Thanks in advance!

  20. 2015 Chevy Silverado Crew LT

    From the album 2015 Silverado Crew LT

  21. Hi. I'm having a slight issue with with the USB music feature of Chevy MyLink. I have a 2014 Silverado LT with the smaller, non-touchscreen version of MyLink. I use a 64gb Sandisk Cruzer to store and playback thousands of mp3s. The playback works fine, but here's my issue: I have deleted some files from the USB drive and even deleted the "trash" folder on the USB drive when inserted into my PC, however when I reinsert the USB drive, the "deleted" files and artists are still displayed when I am browsing the contents of the drive. If I attempt to select and play one of the "deleted" files, the system sputters for a second and then plays the first song on the drive, according to alphabetical order. This may seem like a small issue, but it can be frustrating to have deleted hundreds of songs, but still have to cycle through them when making a selection. Has anyone else dealt with this issue and found a fix? Would a "factory reset" in the radio menu do anything. Also, I've tried renaming the USB drive, but it didn't make a difference. Thanks for any help you can give.
  22. Hi all, I have an 09 Silverado LT z71 extra can short bed that is a non Bose. I found a like new navigation head unit and need to find out if I can do the upgraded oem nav on a LT. I've read that a dealer may have to program the vin into the head unit. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'd hate to have hundreds invested in a paper weight. Thank you
  23. Looking for a little advice for my father. He bought a 2015 DBL cab and wants to add aftermarket heated seats. He has done this before to his 14 single cab but was wondering if anyone has done it differently. On his 2014 he spliced into an ignition wire so that the seats would only be "hot" as long as the truck was running. The question we have now is: "Is there a better way to do this". Is there a spot in the fuse box that will allow us to connect a fuse to the seats just as a safety measure. Not sure how many amps the heating elements pull, I assume its not much. To be honest I have yet to look at the fuse box itself but I wanted to throw this out there in case someone has done this before. If anyone has had experience with this in the past your input would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

  25. Hi all, Just wanted to see if anyone was interested in a pair of take-off headlamps from a 2015 Silverado LT. These are the Halogen Reflector Mid-Level headlamps. Excellent condition, no scratches, dings or damage. All mounting tabs are in tact. They come with all the proper bulbs, wiring and housing caps. Taken off my Silverado at 5800 miles, truck was bought new in February. I live in Atlanta. Willing to ship if the interest is there.
