  1. Just wondering if anyone has found a manufacturer producing a fiberglass shell for these trucks yet? A.R.E. I hear is pretty close. I'm in Idaho so we are limited on brands but could drive to get one.
  2. I bought this truck in August of 2014 from a dealer in Milwaukee. It had 8k miles and the previous owner had custom ordered it used it for 6 months then turned around and traded it in for same thing but 2500 with a Duramax. This is its journey.... The truck also did really impressive burnouts for being completely stock, this one was into 3rd gear A few months after I bought it I started with upgrades. First was a rolling tonneau cover. Didn’t love it but it worked. I wanted more power from it and chose a set of Doug Thorley tri-y headers and catless y pipe.  Had a little issue with y pipe not being the right size for 6.2s catback, welded factory flange onto the y pipe and it works great! Plus they look sweet! At the same time as this I also bought a Diablo inTune, it paired alright with the headers but didn’t have the parameters in it to tune out cats so I had to have someone do that for me. The truck did have some pretty amazing fuel economy though. This tank was hand calculated 24.5!! I drove the truck like this for a couple years but did a few minor things, one was an MIT tube and the other a custom tune from DiabLew. Trans tuning was biggest improvement by Lew.
  3. I posted this in the bed cover topic, but that was all about tonneau covers. I have a question on anyone with a topper. I got a Ranch Icon topper with keyless entry put on a few weeks ago and I'm not happy with it. Here are my issues: 1. The fitment isn't very good. The rear of the topper is tight to the truck like a glove, but as it approaches the front of the cab, it flares out about 1/2" (pic attached), so it's outside the profile of the truck and I think it looks tacky. Ranch says it is normal, the vendor says that the boxes on the 2014-2018 trucks varies a lot and that is why, but I don't buy it. 2. The vendor did a pretty poor install job on the harnesses, they spliced into my bed lighting wiring with compression splices and there was a wire just hanging down in the bed where most of the others were routed inside the bed rail. 3. I went to fix the wiring and put it in split loom to look better and when I lifted it up, I noticed the paint down the bed rail was chipped off where the topper met the bed in 4 or 5 spots, some over an inch long (pic attached). This really makes me mad because I don't plan to run a topper all the time and now my bed will surely rust if it isn't fixed. 4. The latch for the cap wouldn't fully engage on the left side (there are 2 stages to the latch, wouldn't get to the second stage). I brought it in and they fiddled with it and now that works, but it seems like that should work from the factory... (pic attached) 5. Water was leaking in. I know they may not be completely water tight, but it was pretty bad, dripping all down the cab side rail and in from the tailgate. When I took it in for the latch they put a couple more layers of cap tape on it to seal it better. So my questions are, for those of you running truck caps, which one do you have and do you have any fitment or quality issues? Are they nice and snug? Did your cap damage the paint at all? I'm going to call them and I'm thinking I'll return this thing if they will allow it. If they don't, I guess I'll be stuck taking legal action. And I need to get this paint fixed and they are going to pay for it.
  4. I have a back flip MX4 that I have had less than a year. I want to post it for sale, but not sure where to do that... can someone guide me please? I don't want to get in trouble for posting where I'm not supposed to.
  5. Good afternoon...I am getting a camper shell on my truck for my wife's business, she sells clothes that I need to keep clean and dry. I've done a quick search for tailgate seals and it seems there is anything from weather stripping from your big box stores, so what appear to be custom applications (they might just be lipstick on a pig)... Anyway...I don't mind paying a little extra, but want to find the best one possible for my '16 short bed. Does anyone have any success or horror stories that I should consider or stay away from? Thanks in advance!
  6. I've been looking at the Softopper for my new Silverado but at about $857 I'm wondering if they would give us a group buy discount. Anyone interested?
  7. I am so excited to be starting this thread. Why....? Because this means I finally have my new truck. It has been such a long process but I am glad I got just what I wanted. I ordered a 2014 Sierra Crew Cab All Terrain in Iridium Metallic. I ordered this truck with the 5.3L because of how quiet they are. This truck is mostly loaded. I opted for no sunroof and no driver alert package. I think it has every other option. I have several mods that'll be installed so I'll use this thread to share the progress and answer an questions. Here is post one with some stock images.
