  1. Looking to get a decent set of chains/other traction device for my Silverado. I have P265/65/R18 size tires and the owners manual says to not use chains with this size tire as there isn't enough clearance and you risk damage to the vehicle. It also says "Use another type of traction device only if its manufacturer recommends it for use on the vehicle and tire size combination" My question is... has anybody out there found a manufacturer/model of chains where the manufacturer recommends it for this tire size on a 1500?
  2. Hi, Im driving a 2003 Silverado ex cab LT Last night we had out first sloppy weather of the season here on Long Island. The switch seems a little erratic and sometimes it works fast or slow and other times I can hear it shift into gear and others not, No warning or Check engine light, I'm not even sure if there should be one. I found the only fuse and its good. I used my scanner on it and no codes. its the first time I ever had a 4wd issue all my years with Chevy trucks. I will have a new switch here tomorrow, was a good deal. I hope its the problem but I have my doubts. I was having electrical issues a couple months ago and hope its not that again. any Ideas? also what's a good way I can be 100 % sure its out? hard to tell it was so slippery and cant see tires while driving. I did have an issue with a U Joint/ Had one going bad. about a month ago. The guy replaced it and the next day the whole drive shaft dropped from the rear. I was able to move the truck by putting it in 4wd I was 2 blocks from shop and I got it there that way. I sure hope that didn't mess it up. Thanks!!!! Ralph
  3. GM-Trucks.com Reviews: Husky X-act Contour Floor Liners Written & photographed by: Zane & Josh Merva Product: X-act Contour Front and Back Floor Liners Manufacturer: Husky Liners What it is: Precisely cut floor liner that protects your truck from mud, water, and snow far better than the factory mats. What Husky says it does: “Protection with a flexible comfortable soft feel prevents stains & soiling of your carpeted areas. Increases your vehicle's resale value. Form-fit Edge™ patented design gives your floor liner a finished look while keeping damaging spills off your doorsill and carpet. Tough & Durable patented rubberized material is resistant to most chemicals and minimizes cargo shifting.” Cost: $99.95 each [front and rear sold separately] Tested On: 2014 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 2011 Sierra 1500 Extended Cab Introduction It’s inevitable, the dirtiest part of your truck’s interior is where you put your feet. Even if your truck came with carpeted floor mats or you splurged for factory rubber mats, they are never big enough and don’t provide enough protection. Do you really want to have to worry about getting your truck’s carpet dirty? Neither do we. So, we recently tried out a new set of exact fit Husky Floor Liners. The X-act Contour line is Husky's premium liner/floor mat replacement. Unlike floor mats, these liners are exactly cut to fit perfectly into your truck. Husky Liners manufactures the X-act Contour Floor Liner to offer the most protection possible for your truck’s footwell. They are custom fit and extend to cover a sizably larger area than stock mats. We test fit two complete sets of X-act Contour Floor Liners on both a brand new 2014 Silverado Crew Cab and our 2011 GMC Sierra Extended Cab. The stock rubber floor mats on a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado are rugged and durable but don’t cover as much carpeting as they should. New Hampshire winters bring lots and lots of snow, sand, and salt. Even with only 15,000 miles, the extra cost carpeted mats on our 2011 Project Sierra have gotten dirty quickly and are starting to look worn down. Unboxing Here’s how our X-act Contour liners arrived. Husky makes both front and rear floor liners. Each comes in their own box. Each generation of GM truck has their own custom set of liners so make sure to match up the right part number for your correct year, model, and cab size. The liners are packaged securely and are easy to quickly unbox. The cardboard box they came in reminded us of pizza boxes and kind of made us hungry. Now away from their packaging, this front and rear 2014 Crew Cab set is impressive. They have a high-quality look and feel. First impressions are that these liners are heavy duty, durable, and strong. Up close, we see the liners are made of a slightly smooth, non-stick like, rubber. It helps water, dirt, and snow to slide right off. The surface is slightly slick when wet as a result. Fitment in the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Installing these floor liners shouldn't require too much explanation. They fit perfectly into the new snap lock design, and cover a much larger area. No cutting or modification was required. A comparison shot in the 2014 Silverado shows just how much bigger the Husky liners are over the factory rubber mats.. The Husky Liners are nearly twice the size! Husky’s rear floor liners offer even more protection. The 2014 factory rubber mat, sitting on top, is small with no center protection. Fitment in the 2011 GMC Sierra We found the the fit in our 2011 wasn't quite as perfect as in the 2014 but we are still very happy with the result. The passenger side liner on our Sierra is large and built to hold a lot of stuff that may fall off your feet. Husky X-Act Contour Rear Liner protects your truck’s floor carpeting door to door, unlike the factory mats. Here’s our extended cab with the rear seat folded up. How well do they work? We found even if your feet are covered in snow,you don’t have to worry. The Husky Liners are large enough catch everything that fell off our boots. The channeled design holds and traps a lot of water, dirt, mud, and debris, even after it melts. We tried our hardest to knock off as much snow as wildly as we could but the Husky liners kept everything contained. We then tried to over-load our feet with slush and slop but the Husky’s caught it all, too. Conclusion If you never want to worry about tracking weather inside your truck again, the Husky X-Act Contour Liners are the answer. These high-quality floor liners offer the protection your truck deserves and are backed by a lifetime guarantee. We've tested these mats for the last month during the middle of winter in New Hampshire and they've done nothing but impress. Gone are the days of asking passengers to knock off their boots! Jumping into our truck has become a no worry situation, no matter how messy our feet have become. We would highly recommend Husky X-act fit liners.

  4. Currently I have worn out 285/70r17s 7.5in rim on my truck and its time to put some winter tires on these rims. I have a set of 18in rims for summer so this is only for the winter. Im looking for a dedicated snow tire and I get the Multi Mile LT235/80r17 E Trail Cutter M&S for $137 each. My other options are a 245/75r17 at $138, 265/70/17 at $150, or 285/70/17 at $180. It looks like the 235s are the tallest out of the bunch aside from the 285 and I think that is to wide. The tires are 10ply and rated for 80psi ( I run my 285s at 70psi and they tow amazing much better then the stock SR-A`s). I would love to see some pictures if anyone has skinny`s tires and get everyones advice. If you answer is DONT DO IT just let me know why. Thanks everyone!!!! http://www.tireintel.com/tire/75087

    Was driving through the beautiful Nipigon area on highway 17 and decided to take a break at a lookout. Did some donuts and took some pictures.
  6. 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.

    Can't wait until the 6 feet of snow is gone...
  8. Hey guys i have a 99 Sierra 1500 with the 5.3 in it. the trucks got 240k on it and still runs strong but the past couple months has been giving me shit with the 4wd. Its got the floor shift for it and drops in but in situations where im in deep snow or trying to hog my way up a big hill the 4wd light on the dash goes out and and it kicks out even though the floor shifter is still locked in. Like i said its situations where im really spinning and then normally once i stop my 4wd engages again. then as i make another run spinning my way up the hill the light flicks off and i get stuck. would this be something to do with the actuator?
  9. Let's post videos of idiots attempting to drive in the snow. I'll start first! BTW: Use this code to post youtube videos in this thread
  10. Im looking into getting some new tires size 275/70/18. BFG All Terrain T/A KO are my first choice based on looks and reviews. But i noticed that the 275/70/18 size is not snowflake rated while most other sizes are. It snows where I live so snow performance is somewhat important to me. The tires dont have to be incredible in snow but difinetly much better than stock... Should i worry about this size not having the snowflake rating? Im assuming they will perform very close to the BFG sizes that do have the snowflake but I really dont know. Can anyone help me out with this? Or anyone with these exact tires tell me how they perform in winter conditions? Thanks!
