  1. Just curious if anyone has any experience with an after market cold air intake system on a 5.3l Trail Boss. Worth it? I was told by my dealership service department that an aftermarket brand would not void my warranty.
  2. Looking at purchasing a trail boss but after taking one for a drive I felt it was a big step in, I am not really concerned about it for myself but my wife may grow tired of jumping up into the truck and we also have two small kids. I was looking at adding the gm rectangular assist step with the deal but I am not sure if that will help the step up into the truck, or if I am better off going with some hoop side steps that come down a little more. If there is anyone out there with a trail boss with side steps do they make entering and exiting the vehicle easier? Pics would be great. i am used to getting into my 2500hd with the factory side steps so I figured this would be pretty similar I just can not find a trail boss at the dealer with side steps to try it out. Thanks
  3. Hey everyone! Has anyone found a company that currently offers a Roof Rack system (Not Universal or Cross Bar Clamp i.e. Rhino Rack) for the new 2019 Silverado? Added a picture of what I'm talking about. There are a lot for Colorado's models but nothing for Silverado! Ugh I know of a company RMT Overland who has one, but is only sold as a package direct to the dealerships as a "Turn Key" Overland Silverado. (Also Pictured) I have tried several attempts to contact RMT but they will not reach back out, I think cause I'm not a dealership maybe? i Dunno.
  4. Hey all, I have looked and looked for more clear instructions on how to program a second key fob for my 2020 Silverado (dealership lost 2nd set). I live 8 hours from where I bought the truck and the dealership I bought it from would need the truck to program it. I am trying to do it myself. I have followed this guide but still no luck. The youtube video that is out for it is if you are programming a key fob without already having one programmed. It wasn't much help for me. Any GM Mechanics have a quick write up they can copy and paste would be appreciated. These are the two things that haven't been enough help for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=228&v=TUGuBOYIGr4&feature=emb_logo https://www.programyourremote.com/classified/2020-gmc-sierra-keyless-entry-remote-fob-smart-key-programming-instructions-listing-9870.aspx Thanks in advance
  5. I was hoping y’all could help me on my decision. I have a 2019 custom trail boss 5.3 with AFM 6 speed. I called the local dealership here and asked how my warranty would be effected if I disable the AFM. They told me “as long as that tune didn’t cause the damage of whatever i bring the truck in for all is well.” So they recommended me to a local tuner here in town which was surprising. I called him and he said to disable my AFM it would cost around 500. I do know about the range device but I don’t want to to deal with the battery issues it can cause if you mistakenly leave it plugged in. My other option is the hand held tuners such as a diablo. I have zero experience with them but I am going to put in a cold air intake and flow master 44 exhaust in the future. Would my best bet be the Diablo tuner to disable the AFM and use it to adjust my truck to my other mods or go with the professional tuner?
  6. Hey guys hoping y’all could give me some insight on the custom trail boss 5.3 6 speed 3.42 gears with it’s towing if anyone has this model and tows with it let me know how it felt to y’all. I’m going to tow my buddies jeep Cherokee to His home state which is about 700 miles. Will probably go through some hills and mountains in TN. Does the the power train struggle with towing because of the 32 inch durratracs?
  7. I just recently purchase a 2019 custom Trailboss - it comes with these Tires LT275/65R18C MT BLACKWALL GOODYEAR WRANGLER DURATRAC (STD) - I noticed there seems to be lots of road noise even at lower speeds - I've never owned a vehicle with tires like this and have read reviews that they are quite noisy - even at slower speeds - just wondering what other owners say
  8. I'm looking to get a soft roll up tonneau cover for my 2019 trail boss. I was at the dealer last night and they were telling me that since the 2019 trail boss has the auto open tailgate that you have to go with the GM version of the tonneau cover and that the other branded covers prevent you from utilizing the auto open feature. Does anyone know if this is the case. and if so has anyone ever had the GM tonneau cover? is it good quality? I have always been an access guy but would still like to still be able to use the auto tailgate open feature. does anyone have any experience with this? does anyone have the lorado access cover on their silverado and still able to use the auto open feature?
  9. Hey guys I had a weird thing happen and I want to know if it has hallened to anyone else. I’ve had my 2019 LT trail boss for less than 6 months and this is the second time it happens and I was able to take a picture of it. Last nigh when I opened the truck with the remote and got in I noticed the screen was on and there was a fisheye view on it. After I turned it on it went off and when I put it in reverse the regular camera turned on. I thought it could be the same camera just a different setting but from the picture you can see the fisheye is left of the regular camera and the angle is different.I thought that bubble next to the regular camera was just an led light and I don’t see the camera in there. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to activate the fisheye camera? Whats the purpose of that camera? I cant seem to find anything about it online.
  10. When the T1 fist appeared I obviously was attracted to the TB. But after awhile and building all the models online the 2in lift didn’t really seem worth it. Then they announced the 6.2 and i6 comes in the RST and I can put my own lift/wheels on later. Also 18’s are to small for this truck imo I can live with the stock 20’s for a little. I feel like the RST is a better buy if you plan on modding your truck. If you like the 2in lift the TB is fine. With the new updates to the 20’s with engine trims and other things. Are you gonna trade in your 19? I’m sure the dealers won’t mind a truck with 1-10k miles and you probably wouldn’t lose to much $. I’m patiently waiting like everybody for the i6 to show what it’s got. I’m very glad the 6.2 will also be offered as a 2nd choice but I’m 85% committed to the baby Dmax
  11. Hey, love this site, new owner of a TrailBoss custom and wish I would have gotten the LT with more little bells and whistles, but I was too cheap! Now I'm trying to manipulate as many functions and additional features as possible. I'm replacing the center console thanks to this site, now I'm trying to get text messaging from my limited infotainment. Any ideas? I'm anxiously hoping for many!! Thanks guys
  12. Having just passed 10k miles this week, I thought I would offer my opinion on how I feel about the truck so far. Background: I special ordered my LT Trail Boss back in May 2018 and picked it up in September 2018. I have almost every option that you can order on it except the sunroof (would have delayed my production at the time). My truck was built the very first week of production (7/09/2018) and is one of only a small handful of Red Silverados, if not the only one, to receive the Gideon/Dark Atmosphere leather interior as that color was changed to not an option for Red Silverados on the second week of production. Within the first week or two of receiving it, I installed a custom Electronic Cutout System for my exhaust, Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33.5x12.5R20 mud tires, an Undercover Ultra Flex tonneau cover, and vinyl wrapped the scoop portion of my hood. Review: Honestly, I can't believe its been 10k miles already and those miles have flown by without any major issues. I will start with the few issues I have experienced. For the first two months, I had Bluetooth connectivity issues where my phone would randomly disconnect and reconnect multiple times a day. This was fixed in November by software update V507 and has not reoccurred, knock on wood. I also have had Service ESC and Service Parking Brake lights (not at the same time) come up randomly a couple of times but they went away on their own the next time I started the car. Other than these two issues, the truck has been great. It has 110% met and exceeded my expectations. It drives great, its quiet (when the exhaust cutout is closed), its smoother than my K2 was, and it turns a lot of heads. The interior is beautiful and well laid-out, with tons of room in the back seat (Crew Cab) and very comfortable seats for long trips. The Bose surround sound with subwoofer kicks butt and delivers crystal clear, crisp sound. The Blind Spot monitors and Rear Traffic Alert (Safety Package I) work great and have saved my butt many times already. The 5.3 is much quicker and more agile than my K2 was and the 8 speed is a definite improvement. The new Dynamic Fuel Management is seamless and unnoticeable. I am averaging 14-16 mpg city and 16-18 mpg highway, with an all-time high of 21 mpg on a specific highway trip I took and that's pretty good in my book for a lifted brick with mud tires. This past weekend I went on a ski trip in Up North Michigan (Harbor Spring, MI) and we received 10-12 inches of snow in the 3 days I was there on top of the 2 ft that was already there. The Trail Boss handled it with no issue and made it up the steep, winding, snow-covered road to our hill-side cabin like it was driving on straight, dry pavement. I have yet to do any major offroading but during the light offroading that I have done here and there, it performed excellently. I did punch the gas on one little hill and got some air (about 1-2 ft off the ground) and the suspension absorbed the landing nicely. I look forward to testing its capabilities more this summer. The short bed is much bigger in this generation and I honestly haven't noticed any reduced space issues when loading my truck (my K2 had the standard 6.4 ft bed). Also, the oil is much easier to change since they freed up the space around the filter and plug, making oil changes a breeze. Overall, I am very blessed to have this great truck and couldn't be happier. No one pressured me to write this review, nor did GM have any contact with me about it. This is my honest opinion on how I feel about the truck and I hope this review helps anyone thinking about buying one to make the right decision for them. If anyone has any specific questions at all, please feel free to ask.
  13. So far so good. Picked it up on Friday. Comfortable ride, drives nice. There is more leg room in the back seat than my ‘14 crew cab LTZ 1500 or ‘15 crew cab High Country 2500. Truck is 3 inches wider than the previous model too. Sunroof is also wider in proportion to the cab width. I have a few hundred miles on it and am seeing pretty good numbers. I’ve got nothing but compliments everywhere I’ve gone. 2019 Chevy TrailBoss 5.3 Motor 16.5 around town, 21 on the highway @ 70 mph. Not bad considering the OEM 2” lift and off road tires.
  14. Recently picked up a 2019 Chevy Trail Boss LT Just wondering does anyone know what size wheel spacers I can fit to kick my tires out more to get a wider looking stance without any rub ? The truck just has the factory 2 inch lift and tires/rims Looking for a wider stance until I get new rims and tires next year thanks !
  15. Noticed this leak under my truck yesterday. When i set the a/c on it goes crazy F2055D35-15F4-4CAC-8805-0E0043C030EC.MOV
  16. I bought my wife a 2019 trail boss great truck only thing is she has a hard time seeing over the dash to drive. It does not have an adjustable driver's seat for up and down. Does anyone know of any seat risers (manuel/or electric) that i can install to help her see so she can drive her truck? Thanks for any input on the topic
  17. I haven't seen anyone with official numbers. displaying the height of our trucks so I decided to pull it in the garage and measure up a couple of points. Keep in mind, this is a 2019 Trail Boss Custom, Z71, Crew Cab, Standard Bed, with ~3000miles. Everything is completely stock and the tank was 95% full. I measured the following heights; - all 4 corners(at the fender) measured at the center of the wheel - front diff (lowest point) - rear diff (lowest point) - front shroud/bumper (lowest point) I've taken the measurements twice, once SETTLED and once UNSETTLED. To better define the terms, the settled measurements were taken by simply driving the truck in the garage, and measuring. I weigh around 200lbs ( seems to matter as there was a little lean tot he driver side). The unsettled measurements were taken by, lifting the vehicle, front and back, just to the point where the tires were off, then slowly letting the jack down and removing it. SETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 1/4" DS rear - 41 3/8" PS front - 39 1/2" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13" rear diff - 9" bumper - 13 5/16" UNSETTLED Measurements; DS front - 39 7/8" DS rear - 41 1/2" PS front - 40 1/8" PS rear - 41 3/8" front diff - 13 3/8" rear diff - 9" bumper - 14" I've added all the pictures to this gallery ----> I've attached a couple of critical photos I think everyone should be aware of.
  18. Not sure if anybody brought this up yet, but I was looking at pictures from the reveal the other night and noticed something odd about the LT Trailboss. The axle looks quite a bit different from the normal GM 12-bolt 9.5"/9.75" AAM axle on the K2 trucks. The other 2019 Silverado trucks at the show had a standard 9.5"/9.75" axle. I've only been able to find two pictures of this axle so far. If anybody else can find more pictures of the LT Trailboss's rear axle, post them up. So far what I've noticed is: The diff cover has a square embossed area just below the filler plug. The pinion flange looks different. There are also blocks or bosses on this particular casting that aren't on other versions of the current AAM 9.5". They're on either side of the housing, above and below the area where the axle tubes are riveted on. The truss ribs are different. This axle housing appears to be a much beefier compared the the standard 9.5". There also appears to be a wiring harness visible above the axle housing. There also appears to be a metal bracket of some sort on top. Is this evidence that the Trailboss will have an E-locker? LT Trailboss: Standard GM 12-bolt 9.5":
  19. Anyone install a Retrax Pro XR cover on the new 2019 Silverado LT Trail Boss Crew Cab Short Bed? Curious how well it fits overall and with the tailgate. Also curious how well it installs. Any recommendations on where to buy from? Pictures would be great. Thanks in advance for any info.
