  1. Hi there, new to the forum here and was hoping to gain some wisom from you folks. I'm in a dilemma and am having a difficult time choosing between the Silverado or the Suburban. I'm currently a paramedic in the great white north and like to go fishing, hunting, mountain biking, etc. The space in both is more than enough for me but I'm wondering which is the better vehicle? Most of the gear I'll be carrying will need to be dry so If I do get a pickup I'll have to add a shell to the back. So the question is: do I buy a suburban or a silverado with a decked out bed (what functionality do I lose going either way)? I'll be daily driving this car/truck so it will need to be a great all rounder (city driving, long road trips, light offroad, driving empty, etc). Do I lose any ground clearance/off road capability if I get the suburban, and do I lose any creature comforts if I get the silverado? Specifically looking at the LT or the Suburban and the LTZ for the Silverado. Bonus question: Do you think its worth upgrading to the GMC lineup? (ex: Yukon XL vs Sierra) They seem pretty similar give or take a few cosmetic things. Would love some insight into this issue. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello everyone, I recently bought this clean title, high mileage 2000 Silverado LS Z71 from my coworker. It was right before Christmas and I really wanted to help the guy out knowing full well I could do something with it. Heck, I needed a truck after all. I get home and attempt to drain the oil but nothing comes out. After some poking around with a screwdriver, I get it to drain. Chunks are flowing along with the oil and it turns out there was so much sludge build up in the bottom of the pan, it sucked some up, suffered a momentary loss of oil pressure and spun the bearing. I know the transmission had a hard shift from first to second. Could it be low fluid? Maybe, but why do the swap just to find out the transmission is bad? My coworker friend was a smoker and it appears he preferred his coffee without a lid so the interior is....interesting. Also truck only has oxidation on the hood and fenders so the only reasonable choice was to find a salvaged donor vehicle to source parts from!! I have a buddy with a dealers license and I'm debating picking up this rear ended 2006 Escalade for a FULL front end/interior/dash/drivetrain swap. Can it be done? Plug and play? Anything someone doing something like this should know? I've done some pretty crazy engine swaps and garage rebuilds, 2 stroke porting early on, etc. I have the ability but hopefully you folks can chime in and confirm whether or not it is possible or if there is a better option. I was also looking at a 2004 Duramax/6speed which was t-boned pretty good as a potential candidate but there's something about that plush Escalade interior....
  3. It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times. Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process. I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live.

  4. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-16-2019 GM laid out a comprehensive advertising plan this past week to support the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra now that they are ready for volume delivery. One of the innovative ways that GM had promised to promote the trucks was via Amazon packaging adverts. As you know from our coverage here, GM is wisely partnering with Amazon whenever possible. The images here are from Facebook 2019+ Silverado/Sierra Owner's club member Daniel Glauser. Daniel ordered up some products from Amazon and was nice enough to share the first images we have seen of the new GM promotional partnership with Amazon. Every little bit helps. What's your take on GM using this promotional opportunity? Our thanks to Daniel for sharing his images.
  5. So I've done a little research online about wheel spacers. I was wondering if I could put wheel spacers on my 2009 Silverado 1500 to get my wheels to stick out farther, without it causing other problems. Right now they stick out about an inch, but don't want to buy new wheels.

  8. Good morning everyone, I recently purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Crew Cab SLT All-Terrain package. I'm personally wanting to install a leveling kit and I believe I've selected one. I've read a lot about leveling kits for 2017-18 trucks and this seems like a great kit. However, there isn't many reviews on this product by ReadyLift. The appeal of this lift is the UCA replacements and the <2" height it allows. I'm wanting to go with 305/55/20 or 285/60/20 tires with my stock AT wheels and I want as much clearance possible. I found maybe 2-3 members on here with this lift and I'll quote them below. My question is, will this work with my All-Terrain package? In the description of the kit it states, "Will not work on Z71 packaged vehicles with factory Rancho® struts." Yet on ReadyLift's website, there is nothing supporting that statement. Does anyone have any information or review for this kit? Thanks!
  9. What outdoor cover do you guys use to protect against the elements?
  10. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-7-2019 Are you tired of the dude with a clipboard and the "real people" looking surprised when the trucks they see turn out to be Chevys? If so, you will be pleased to hear that GM is taking a little break from the four-year-long "Real People, Not Actors" campaign. GM plans to bring them back, but for the coming season, Chevy is headed toward a different angle in its adverts that will show how the Silverado is the perfect truck for everyone in America. Which makes little sense since GM sells three other trucks that must be right for somebody (are we crazy?). The spot features a variety of Silverado owners closing tailgates. The new advert is called "Tailgates," and we have to say we like it. The nostalgia always tugs at our heartstrings and Chevy highlighting the more modern uses for trucks instead of it always being a horse saddle rest is welcome. For more details on GM's Chevrolet Silverado advertising plans, check out this deep dive by Ad Age. What is also a bit funny though is that GMC has a new ad campaign that basically says all one piece tailgates are old-fashioned. Do the Chevy and GMC add guys talk? GMC's new advertising campaign is called "Step Up Like A Pro." Maybe we have been drinking the GM Kool-Aid too long, but this one sounds like a winner to us. First off, "Step up" reminds us of GM's innovative corner step. Secondly, "Like a Pro" sounds a lot like the GMC theme for the past decade that generally gives the impression that GMC trucks are "Professional Grade." The campaign highlights GMC unique multi-function tailgate and features a song you know well. "Step Up Like A Pro is an empowering call to action that resonates with truck owners, encouraging them to reach higher in their lives and not accept the ordinary. ‘Anthem’ continues to define our GMC ‘We Are Professional Grade’ standards and signals landmark change to the industry,” said Rich Latek, director of GMC Marketing. GM is planning a lot of TV-football and social media buys to kick off the Silverado and Sierra campaigns. What do you think of the adverts?
  11. Well, I have a bit of a issue with water leaks in a new 1500 ltz z71. The history is, we keep it garaged most of the time so water leaks had not been an issue.. recently we had to do some remodel at the house and used the garage to store/cut wood. We've left the vehicle outside for several months. I kept noticing that we would get an occasional moisture in the windows as the temperature changed plus a slight odor of musk smell. Well, on a last year, we got a chip in the windshield that had to be replaced. Then after several torrential rains over several months, I noticed one day that my drivers side carpet was soaked. the water went all the way up the firewall. in the padding under the carpet. Naturally we suspected the windshield and had the company that warranty it come back and fix. after drying the carpet out with a small fan over several days. During the next rain (torrential) it was wet again. Again we called the windshield company and they removed / reinstalled the windshield again (3rd time) . This time while the windshield tech had the windshield removed I looked at what possibly could leak and where it would go down the inside firewall. There was only one way and it had to be due to lack of enough windshield adhesive in the upper left corner where the water could drip into the A pillar and down to behind the speaker then into the cab. While the windshield was out, I removed the A pillar trim so I can verify the windshield and also verify that the upper sat antenna wasn't leaking. Again I dried the carpet and parked the truck going down hill nose down. I took the water hose and flooded the areas we thought was leaking.... no water leaks. ok good. Just to double check that I didn't have another issue, I then proceeded to run water over the driver door seal area.. (I had removed the drivers sill molding and placed paper towels around the door seal bottom so I could see if it leaked) front door was not leaking. I then decided to "just for grins" check the rear. I took off the sill molding and noticed the carpet and the padding was wet back there.. I dried up the puddles of water, then tested the back door seal using same method. no leak. ok then I thought where in the heck would this water be coming from. After googling and watching a video of the rear body vent leaks, I decided to test the rear body vent on drivers side... by just letting water drip from the rear window down on the vent, and after a few minutes water started poring into the rear. Ah ha.. So this is where it is leaking... and it makes sense now, I have a bed cover and every time it rains water goes forward onto the cab and then drips onto the vent, the water penetrates runs under the carpet all the way to the drivers side if the truck is parked nose down. the carpet is wicking up the water that is why it is wet all the way up the firewall. Anyone owning a Chevrolet pickup needs to verify the rear carpet is not getting wet. Faulty or leaking vents could allow exhaust or other gases to penetrate into the vehicle as well as water. It would be so simple to put some sort of "outer water shield" over the outside of those flaps so water could not hit the flaps. This would direct the water downward and still allow the cab to breathe.. on installation seal the unit with silicone around the perimeter where it meets the cab metal so there would be a good seal on the unit. geez.. This needs to be a recall.. this is a faulty design and needs to be redesigned. I am taking this to the stealer next week as the vehicle is under warranty for 500 more miles.
  12. The end of December, I noticed a small amount of oil on the garage floor under the front of rear differential of my 2WD, 2019 High Country. It appeared to be a pinion seal leak. The Dealership concurred and ordered a new front yoke and pinion seal. Today, the Dealership called and informed me that GM did not have the parts so they sent a Complete new rear Differential as a replacement!! Now they need my truck for a Full day to swap rear ends. Appears to be an EXPENSIVE way to replace a $10 part, but GM must know Best!?
  13. Hello, I'm looking for anyone who is interested in trading me their Black bumper or grille or both for my Chrome pieces. I currently have a 2017 Silver Silverado LT with pristine chrome grill and bumper and would like to switch out for Black Pieces. Want to try to get a 2019 Trail Boss look.
  14. I have finally got around to finalizing the install of the OEM RSE system for my 2016 Silverado HD. This was the only option that I wanted that my pickup did not come with so I am extremely happy this is done and so is my son! I would like to give a BIG THANKS to Anthony and John at MVI (www.gm-navigation.com) as they are extremely knowledgeable and their customer service is top notch. I purchased MVI's in-dash Blu-ray and RSE kits along with the unlocked HMI module and added their HDMI input and third brake lamp camera with switch. The unlocked HMI is definitely worth the money over a Lockpick as you have full control while in motion and don’t have to worry about the Lockpick failing as I had 2 of 2 fail in my old 2010 Silverado. MVI supplied most of the parts though I did source a few parts from the dealer as I did vary a little from MVI's kit as I wanted the RSE controls in the center console which their current kit does not yet have but was told it is on their to-do list with many other projects. Their HDMI kit requires the RSE controls as you tap into those inputs. I removed one of the cigar lighter outlets in the front of the center console and mounted the HDMI input there. If you stick to their kit, the install is fairly simple IF you have a sunroof. Once again, MVI offers great customer service in case you do run into any glitches. They are also a vendor on here as well if you did not know. NOTE: ***NON-SUNROOF VEHICLES*** You do need a new headliner if you don't have a sunroof as you need the mounting bracket for the screen which offsets the screen from of the original position of the overhead dome lamp leaving ts existing hole exposed. On sunroof vehicles, the dome lamp and screen use the sunroof frame to mount to and you just enlarge the existing dome lamp hole.
  15. I have a 2001 Silverado 2500 HD, wondering if I had a body control module issue, my heated seats don’t work, my driver side seat only worked half way i.e. The lumbar support works but the lean and moving the seat functions do not, along with my keyless entry not working but my power locks do work. Any ideas?
  16. Hi all, I have been in the vibration forums for a couple months now and have decided to make a new thread dedicated specifically to the Class Action Suit that I have been working with a lawfirm in Boston. Over the course of the last month, the firm has been actively investigating the issues many of us are seeing in our vehicles. Let me be a little more specific, They have hired outside investigators who are working with the top level partners at the firm to actively research, test, and and inspect the trucks, looking into the Vibrations, Radio Reception, and Transmission issues. I have been sending them any and all information that I come across, that is sent to me or posted in the forums that could potentially help them. In the mean time, I am and have been taking names, email addresses, phone numbers, trucks, locations (city & state) and if you have yet to rid yourself of the truck (trade or otherwise), and now what your issue(s) are/ were. It doesn't matter if you have gotten rid of your truck or not, at worst we may only be able to use your case, at best, we may be able to get you some form of compensation (I can not say for sure, that is up to the attorneys to figure out, what extent that this can go) If you would like to be added to the rapidly growing list of people who wish to be contacted please send me a PM with the information mentioned above. (please note: I can not guarantee the attorneys will contact you, however the more people who join the list, the more powerful the case, and the better off we are) Good Luck with your trucks, Jesse D. ------EDIT------ I decided to combine the yes and and about to send information to Jesse D. into one line item. those of you that have sent me your info or those who were in the about to category please resubmit your vote to the correct line. those of you who haven't voted but already sent me your info, please submit your vote, i would like to try to keep this as accurate as possible. I do have some names from people I have talked to who are not on the forum, so I know it will never be 100%. Thank you Jesse D.
  17. Bought the truck used with a few paint chips I was ok with this summer since I travel a fair amount of gravel for outdoor activities. Just came back from a car wash and the rear fenders look terrible. Live in the cold north and I don't have a heated garage. Any recommendations? Can I use a touch up paint kit in the cold garage? 0-30F or use a heater/heat gun to heat up the area first? I don't think it'll work worth a damn because if the temperature changes. What would a body shop charge? I'm pretty bummed out after seeing this many chips pop up. I don't see any rust anywhere on the body but feeling like that's going to be coming fast any ideas or recommendations?
  18. I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado LT RWD with a 5” Maxtrac spindle lift and a 2” strut spacer to equal 7” of lift. I want to replace the 2” strut spacer with a 3”. I want to know if anyone else has done it? Or if anyone has some advice.
  19. Hey Guys, I’ve noticed that a friend of mine has the blue LED lights all over his dashboard, he says it came like that since he purchased it. He drives a 2016 Chevy Silverado & mine is 2017 but I don’t seem to have this option. Both our cars are LT 1500. Any tips or guides on how to activate it (if possible). Thanks 🙏🏻
  20. Rotor and hub assembly removal/replacement 2015 silverado 1500 LT 4x4 Long time lurker, first time poster I was in the process of changing the brakes and rotors, which was going fine until I got around to the passenger front. I get the caliper bracket off and get the brakes out of the way. Then that’s when i did it, I snapped off the tip of a t-30 torx bit in the head of the brake rotor torx bolt. I’ve tried everything that I can thing of to get it out. Ive tried to drill a small 1/16” hole in the center of the broken bit to have an edge to work with. I’ve tried hand impact tools to just work around it and get the bolt out with no luck. I’ve watched a bunch of good videos, but had no luck so far. That’s bring me to a possible ‘solution,’ as I have to change out the hub assembly,Moog 515160, anyway. I’m think that I could just remove the spindle nut, and the hub hardware bolts and that should release both the rotor and hub as one piece? Thanks in advance for any thoughts, info, guidance! I’ll get some pics to add tomorrow in the daylight.
  21. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-12-2018 Wards has named the General Motors 6.2-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) to its 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines Award list. “General Motors’ thundering 420-horsepower V-8 in the Silverado exemplifies how engineers continue to find ways to improve efficiency without giving up something in return. DFM determines 80 times per second exactly how many cylinders require fuel to meet power demands. And, incredibly, it uses as few as two cylinders to propel the full-size pickup down the highway,” says Wards' Senior Content Director Drew Winter. “The truly amazing part is the cylinder deactivation is imperceptible, so seamless that the only thing the driver notices is fewer stops at the pump." Coincidental to the award, GM-Trucks.com has just taken delivery of a long-term tester with this very engine. “Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.” The full list of Wards' 10 best engines is as follows: 3.0L (B58) DOHC Turbocharged I-6 (BMW X5) 6.2L OHV V-8 with DFM (Chevrolet Silverado) 5.0L DOHC V-8 (Ford Mustang GT/Bullitt) 3.0L DOHC TurboDiesel V-6 (Ford F-150) 2.0L DOHC Atkinson i-VTEC 4-Cyl./HEV (Honda Accord Hybrid) 120-kW Fuel Cell/Electric Propulsion System (Hyundai Nexo) 150-kW Propulsion System (Hyundai Kona EV) 2.0L DOHC VC-Turbo 4-Cyl. (Infiniti QX50) 2.0L DOHC Atkinson 4-Cyl./HEV (Lexus UX 250h) 3.6L DOHC Pentastar eTorque V-6 (Ram 1500)
  22. What's everyone's purchase price and financing on the new z71 silverado? Im looking at buying one and am trying to find some information to set some negotiations with the local dealers.
  23. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-10-2018 The EPA posted the new fuel economy numbers for a variety of Silverado combinations this week. The new 2.7-liter engine is one highlight. What struck us after reviewing the info is that the numbers are not that impressive. Chevrolet made a lot of noise about the new truck's aerodynamics and engine technology, leading us to get the impression that some interesting numbers would follow. Now that we see the numbers we are not so sure. First off, there are 38 different Silverado 1500 combinations listed by www.FuelEconomy.gov. Four pages of different fuel economy numbers for the model years 2018 and 2019. You can find them all yourself on the site to view which interest you, but we are pulling out a few for discussion purposes. First Up 5.3L V8 4x 4 2018 vs. 2019 To our eyes, the 2019s (denoted by "K") look like they get lower fuel economy. Are we mistaken? Next Up 4.3L V6 4 x 4 2018 vs. 2019 The 4.3-liter V6 was more efficient last year is our take. What's yours? Next Up 2019 2.7L 4-cylinder turbo in 2WD vs. 4.3 V6 in 2WD for 2018 vs. Ram V6 2019 The reason there are two Silverados is one is the work truck, the other not the work truck. They get different MPG ratings. The Ram is the new mild hybrid eTorque V6. Hmm. Our friends at Automotive News asked Chevy's Monte Duran why the new trucks have lower fuel economy numbers than the old and he replied, "We increased towing capacity, payload, and it's a much larger bed and a much larger cab."
  24. Lucky to be alive!

    Found a YouTube video of a guy involved in an accident in the new Silverado and walked away without a scratch. Looks like the engineers did something right!
  25. This is my 1995 GMC Sierra SLE, running at 142,000 miles. Bought it used at a small business dealership for $6500. I believe the two-tone color is dark hunt club red metallic and light autumnwood metallic.
