  1. Hello all, I have searched for ideas on this, and only found a few people who installed "mood lighting" inside the bumper step. I'm wondering how simple or effective it would be to get some real reverse flood lights inside the bumper step? I know you could fill the whole cavity with a tractor light and it would work, but I'd like to still be able to use the step if I need it. So has anyone installed an LED flush mount or similar light that actually throws enough light behind them to use for backing up/ doing work? How does it fit inside the curved surface of the step? The reason is I want the ability to have light behind me for plowing snow. I already replaced the factory reverse and cargo bulbs with LEDs, I think they work fairly nice, but they throw really straight back like a spotlight. I'm hoping to have a little wider path lit up. I don't want to cut the bumper or have lights hanging down below the bumper, but I know those would be alternative options. I know there have been a lot of creative people adding auxiliary lights to their trucks, so I'm hoping someone can show how you were able to do this.
  2. So My current 2001 4 door Blazer plow truck/daily driver needs a ton of work. It has over 243K on the clock, very low oil pressure, a leaky heater core, cracked windshield, and multiple emissions problems that I've been leaving unfixed because I don't care (EGR, Air pump, etc.). Oh, and lots and lots of rust. Did I mention it's a 4 door, I hate 4 doors. Anyways, I saw a 1999 Two door ZR2 show up on Facebook Marketplace with 134K and an engine knock for $580 bucks with brand new tires so I immediately message the seller and went to look at it. I talked him down to $500 and towed it back to my shop. Oh, and it even had a full tank of gas. (bonus!) Sounds like a bad rod knock. Will most likely need a crankshaft, rod and rebuild, but I might be able to find a cheap used engine. I already located the correct pushplates locally to mount the fisher plow, So I'll pick those up sometime this week (they are different plates than the standard Blazer takes). Tomorrow after work I will pull the oil pan and see what actually failed. So here's a pic of the truck: and here's a picture of my current 2001 Blazer that is going to be retired (junk yard) after I keep it for a few months to rob any parts that I may need for the new one. And my beat Fisher Plow:
  3. Hey everyone, So I had a shop that specialize in lawn equipment, and snow equipment install a Blizzard Plow on my 2017 Silverado 1500 just a few weeks ago. I took the blow off one day and when starting my truck, I noticed both y headlights would flicker for about 30 seconds or so. I took the truck back to the shop I got the plow put on and they said that I have aftermarket headlights, which I don't... I told them the headlights are factory LED's. So they ran some tests and got another plow module to see if it was the module doing it or what. Sure enough it did the same thing. They said they are going to contact GM about the issue. They haven't gotten back to me yet but before they do, I was just wanting to ask other plow owners if they have had this issue and what they or their shop did to fix the issue. I supplied a video (below) to show exactly what they are doing. Both headlights will do it but in the video, only that one head light does it.
  4. I'll start of by admitting I'm a noob when it comes to trucks. I have a 2015 Silverado 2500HD 4x4 Z71 LTZ with stock 265/60/20's. I have a new 1/2 mile long dirt driveway (New England,) which I have to plow. I've been back and forth about whether to get A/T's or M/S's... and sizes. I'd love a recommendation. I'm looking at getting new rims as I'll go with 17" or 18". Being a dirt driveway, it also get's pretty muddy. I need a tire I can also run on highway, but a good tire for plowing is key. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
  5. Anybody know of any videos showing hooking up existing auxillary beacon wires that are tucked into the ceiling?

    1990 plow

    From the album: random

  7. From the album: random

    found this in craigslist. note, ripple between two flexing rivets, no factory weld. 1996 is all weld... using this as reference. gmt400 chassis is not "all the same"
  8. Thinking about a new truck. Current is a 2014 LTZ Z71 5.3 with 3.08. I'll need to plow my personal driveway with this truck and one other short driveway. Anyone have a 6.2 that plows? I'm also looking at the 6.2 for some summer time fun with the added HP over the 5.3 and pushing snow. The 2500 is not an option for me. This truck will be a custom order and I would like some input before pulling the trigger. Thanks.
  9. Zane Merva, Executive Editor GM-Trucks.com 11/1/2016 Chevrolet isn't wasting time letting the world know about all the ways you can use the brand new 2017 6.6L Duramax Diesel. At this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas, the brand unveiled a Silverado HD designed to literally plow the competition out of the way. Since we're at this year's show, we visited Chevy's booth to take a look. Meet the Silverado 2500HD Alaskan Concept. It's a high-intensity blue beast featuring the best of the Silverado and the accessories you can buy from your dealer today. The Alaskan Concept features Newly designed 20-inch "highly polished" wheels with 35-inch off road LT tires A unique hyper blue and ice metallic exterior color scheme One massive stainless steel V-plow package with the Alaskan bear logo Smoked amber roof lights and a spray in bed liner with the Alaskan bear logo Chevrolet accessories floor liners, chrome assist steps and black bowtie. Here's a few more photos fresh from the show floor. So, would the Silverado Alaskan Concept be a truck that you'd like to buy? Good news, aside from the custom paint and graphics, all of these options are available at your local Chevrolet dealership.
  10. Well I know its not the time of year but it is coming. I bought a brand new 2015 silverado work truck with the plow prep package on it. I traded in my 2013(biggest mistake) and had the plows swapped from the 13 to the 15. When drivng over 40 mph (in the winter) the temp starts to climb to dangerous numbers. I had the GM engineer involved in this problem and they are aware of it but have no cure. There answere was not to drive over 40MPH. Speed limits on the way to work ar 55 MPH. The engineer said that at 40 MPH the plow creates a vacuum and pulls heat from the engine through the radiator. The difference I have noticed was the 2013 had holes in the bumper and the 2015 does not. This only happens on the 1/2 tons due to the 25-35 has holes in the bumper for the cooler. Any one else have this problem or a fix?
