  1. Big Whiskey's 2016 2500HD

    I traded my 2012 Silverado 1500 for a new 2016 2500HD! It's an LT trim level, but has quite a few options. It has the All Star package and LT Plus package, which adds most of the important items. It also has a few extras, like the LED bed lighting and towing mirrors. MSRP was just a little over 50k. Here's a few completely stock, dealership photos. It looks pretty plain for a 50k truck!
  2. Hey all, I own a 2018 Silverado 2500HD LTZ Z71...The damn headlights are that terrible yellow color, Did Chevy not put LED lights on any of the 2500 models? Has anyone replaced the whole light assembly or even just bulbs to achieve the clearer look? If so please share and checkout the photo below of my headlights compared to the illuminated bow tie. Thanks for the help.
  3. I have some items/ parts I no longer require or desire. Would love to get them out of my garage. Everything is off a 2016 Silverado 1500 Z71 LT Crew Cab Short Bed. - Bed caps - Headlights (no harness) Continued:
  4. Looking at crew cab short bed 4x4’s with the V8’s. I just can’t wrap my head around not having low range so it’ll either be a Z71 or a Trail Boss. Been watching prices and I’m seeing Custom Trail Boss trucks starting to get close to the prices of the LT. As in within a grand or even less. Anyone bought a Custom and regret it? I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 4x4 and my wife has a 2017 Yukon 4x4. Both have the 6L80 transmission and hers has the Ecotec 5.3 V8. Very happy with that engine and transmission combo and even with less power my ‘11 moves and drives well with the 3.42 gears. Will I miss anything with a Custom instead of a regular LT Z71? 6 spd vs 8 spd? Gas mileage? Something else?
  5. Hey folks, just wanted to introduce myself real quick since i finally decided to join up instead of just steal all of your knowledge like I've been doing for so long. Lots of great people in here obviously, so glad to join and hopefully add to it. New to this forum, not new to chevy trucks, and picking up my new L5P on Friday out in Weatherford TX. This will be my third Duramax, stoked as hell to give the L5P a shot. Including a couple of pics the dealer sent me yesterday before finalizing the deal over the phone. To do list already: 5% tint VLED low beams Looking into Morimoto LED projector fog lamp replacements Add factory clearance lights (who the hell builds a 1 ton without them?!) Lighted black bowtie Looking forward to being a valuable member and asset.
  6. Hello all, I have been considering getting mud flaps for my 2015 silverado as I am tired of mud, dirt, snow and rocks getting tossed up onto my paint. I am just wondering which mud flaps people on this forum have been using. I have taken a look into the oem chevy ones, weathertech and also rekgen. If anyone has added these to their vehicle please let me know your opinion on which style mud flap you have used. I am looking for ones that are more of a kickable style. Any help is appreciated
  7. Does anyone have any experience with the quality of the custom z71 off-road badges that you can find on eBay or Amazon? Or does anyone know of a good legit website that makes them? Looking for a different look than red and black. Any help is appreciated.
  8. Ceramic Pro

    I am doing a little bit of research on possibly getting my 2015 1500 Silverado cermaic coated. My truck is black so it shows dirts and dust fairly easily. I have always applied wax to my previous cars just had heard about ceramic coating through social media. The product that I have heard the most is called CeramicPro. If anyone has used it on their vehicle how did it turn out? Any help is appreciated.
  9. 2018 Chevy Silverado crew-cab z71 named “Blueberry” on the lot ready to go home
  10. I have 96 with the 5.7 and it's been running lean for a while bank 1 and 2 and can not figure out what is causing it. I have changed maf sensor tps sensor new spark plugs there was a code for malfunction o2 sensor i replaced that and I also put some injector cleaner in the tank also changed fuel filter. The truk idles fine but when I put it in reverse and drive and im crawling/creeping along like backing out of the drive way its stuttering and running rough like its about to die/shut off and usually ill get on the gas a little and it will start running fine. It runs fine once I get going 10-20mph on up from there its just when I fire it up and get to rolling and foot is barely on the pedal. Also not even a week ago truck gauges would go to 0 and would get stuck in 3rd ended up being a ground on back of the engine. I do hear a small leak under the driver side could be exhaust manifold or where the flange is right under it where the pipe connects but I don't think it would cause it to run lean. Tomorrow i'm going to check fuel pressure, all I can think of is bad fuel pump, regulator, maybe intake manifold gasket even though I don't see any signs or even a bad ecm. Any help would be appreciated. Also should there be a little bit of oil in the air intake tube? its also in that vent that just pops in the side that comes from the top of the valve cover. its oily around the bottom too where it goes into the cover.
  11. Here's my new to me CPO 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3/8spd LTZ w/ LTZ Plus Package and Z71 Package. Silver Ice on Jet Black Here are pics the day I picked it up from Lone Star Chevrolet in Houston TX on Feb 28. Mods are going to be the usual and will be listed below Thanks for looking!
  12. On the 2016-18 Z71’s. Has anyone had trouble with the adhesive on the molding? Every time I look over at it, it’s popping out and noticeable. Im A little worried that it’s going to end up ripping off soon. I cleaned it up and used 3M double sided tape on it but looks like it keep wearing off for some reason.
  13. Been lurking thought I'd post a couple of pic's of my Red Z71. 2017 GMC Sierra Z71 SLT 6.2
  14. Hey so im looking for all black emblems for my 2018 silverado z71 ltz, i was wondering if anyone knows where i can get these or how to make this happen? Ive found “silverado ltz” in all black but cant find the side “z71” on the doors, the all black bow ties or the small all black z71 in the grill..
  15. Kind of stupid but I was pulling forward in the driveway with some snow and I was expecting the G80 locker to clunk in and then have both wheels spin at the same speed. Just my luck though there was a continous banging instead. Traction control was off and so was stabilitrack. You can hear it pretty good in the video, was it at the sweet spot of 100ish rpms and that's why it was locking and unlocking?? Rear end5.mp4
  16. Just got a "brand new" used 2017 Silverado Z71 with the midnight edition package. I really loved the monochromatic look but hate the suspension on it. Anyone know how I can go about replacing the Rancho shocks while also leveling the truck and adding a 1 inch lift? It might be a tall order but would like to know if its possible. Do I need to replace the whole suspension system (shock, coils, struts, etc.) or just the shocks themselves. I normally drive on highways and unpaved country roads so a comfortable shock is really all I need nothing wildly "off-road" oriented. I'd honestly be ok with the stock suspension setup on LTZ/High country models but like the styling of the Z71 better so now I'm stuck with the stiffer suspension (which doesn't even make sense for off-roading). Cheers, Victor
  17. Hey all, New member here to the GM-Trucks community. I recently purchased a 2016 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 with the LT1 and Allstar Packages. Loving the truck so far. Got a great deal on it, but there are a few modifications the previous owner made that I'd like to change to reflect my own taste. The previous owner removed the factory badges, emblems, and decals which are the first projects I'm trying to tackle. I've found some OEM GM original Z71 emblems for sale online, as well as the OEM "smoked" or dark grey/black Z71 emblems too. I'm looking to apply the Z71 decals to the bed sides on my pickup. I'm relatively good at decal placement and application, however I do not know the exact measurements of where to place the decals. What I'm looking for are measurements from the top of the bed, and from the tail light and end of the bed. If anyone knows these measurements or has experience with this any tips/info would be appreciated. Also, the previous owner put an aftermarket grille on my truck which I'm looking to replace with an OEM color matching Z71 grille. I'm under the impression that the Z71 has it's own grille and other grilles from the same body style of other trim levels won't work. I'm having a hard time finding a grille online, does anyone have any used parts sites or specific forum where I could look for a replacement? My truck is a metallic dark grey, not sure on the exact paint code. Just looking to be pointed in the right direction of where I can find a decently priced used grille. Thanks in advance
  18. HI, I have purchased 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in September of last year, everything seem to be fine until yesterday. while standing at the light with the break pressed, the rear camera picture appeared on the display. it does not have the the guide lines, just the picture, every time I press the break the camera comes on. When i come to the stop and take my time to put in reverse, the picture stays without the guidelines even though it is in reverse. If i Put in reverse quickly, the camera comes on as it should with the guide lines. I have switched bulbs to LED bulbs with resistors for breaks and reverse no resistors as they do not blink, but it was back in September without any issues so far until now. not sure if that can cause the malfunction or not, but i would think that LEDs have nothing to do with the camera. I'm assuming that water got somewhere and its shorting out/powering up camera. its cold here so I did not get the chance to look at it yet. if anyone can point me to where the camera gets the signal from i can probably figure it out before i go back to the dealer to get that fixed. Notice below what gear the truck is in including "R" no guide lines.. thanks a lot..
  19. Hey everyone, I just got my 2014 Silverado with the z85 option not too long ago and while browsing the local CL I came across a set of brand new take off front struts from a 2017 Silverado 1500 Z71. Would these be an upgrade to the stock z85 struts? Would it level out the truck at all? Would there be any modification or swapping of other front end parts required? Thanks for the help, I tried searching but couldn't find a thread that touched upon this.
  20. 2001 gmc sierra slt -aftermarket kenwood stereo I've had this pickup for about a couple months now, Ice had a problem start where my speedometer was off By 5 mph. It wasn't a big deal to me. I ignored it. After about a few days of it being off by 5mph, it had risen up to be 10 mph off, and the next day after that if was 20 mph off and still is to this day. Some days it will be off by 10 or even by 5. The aftermarket stereo has no fm/am radio signal,so I took the radio out and unplugged it to see if I needed an radio atenna adapter and I noticed while the stereo was disconnected from the harness the speedometer wasn't off and dropped back to 0 while parked. I went for a drive and the speedometer was fine. When I plug that stereo in it jumps back up to 20 again. All the wiring from the factory radio harness to the aftermarket stereo looks okay the colors match. I'm puzzled on why it does this. Also the speedometer kinda wiggles a bit when turning power on to the pickup like as if a surge is happening. Any help or advice of what to do would be great!
  21. Its been awhile since I've put up an update post on what I have done to my truck in the past few months. So here is the list.... -RC 2 inch leveling kit -Carven performance exhaust ( Competition muffler ) -Aftermarket taillights ( returning soon as they already have issues ) -future planned taillights are morimoto's -Black bowtie swap front and rear -I may get aftermarket headlights in the future if prices go down. -Custom HD towing mirrors ( The front LED turn signals are sequential ) -20 inch light bar mounted onto a license plate bracket mount -20x10 -25 offset dropstar 655bm -33x12.5 toyo open country RT's -Front end air dam removal with trimming for tires -LED turn signal bulbs All these mods were done myself except for the tow mirrors since i had them done at my Chevy dealer so that i made sure everything worked properly and was warrantied for the wiring harness. Please give me your thoughts and opinions on my build and give me any pointers o what i should do next to the truck. I'm thinking about getting a cold air inductions CAI next.
  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. 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.
  24. Well guys, it finally happened with the 2019's coming out and all these dealers trying to move their new and used 18's I broke down and upgraded my 2014 GMC 1500 to a Certified 2018 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 w/ only 2700 miles! I am pretty excited about it, she's bone stock and she won't last that way for long. Going from 35's to stocks is going to be quite the transition at first, but don't fret! There are changes coming soon and I figured I would track my build right here, hope y'all will enjoy! It already started yesterday as I did some research and discovered my K & N cai will fit on the 2018, so I pulled that off and put the stock intake back on, also took the hidden light bar out of the grill, and of course took my good ole trusty tool box off (this will be truck number 5 for the tool box!). I placed an order just a few minutes ago and there are more goodies coming soon! Please let me know if y'all have any comments, ideas, or questions!
  25. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-9-2018 Chevrolet is building upon its huge sales success of the new generation Colorado with two new special editions. GM credits the Colorado and Canyon with helping the company to become the largest seller of pickups. “The success of Colorado helped reignite the midsize truck segment, which increased 27 percent from 2015 to 2017,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing for Chevrolet Trucks. “It changed what customers expected from a midsize truck, brought new customers to Chevrolet and has inspired competitors to follow Chevy’s lead.” The first Colorado special edition is a street-focused RST is based on the LT trim. The new RST features a monochromatic exterior offset with a black beltline and body side moldings. The RST also adds a black tailgate bowtie, Colorado and RST badges. The RST becomes first Colorado trim to offer 20-inch wheels, finished in low-gloss black. Like the Bison, the RST will wear the flow-through “CHEVROLET” lettered grille. The new Colorado Z71 Trail runner begins with the Z71 package and adds the Colorado ZR2’s underbody protection and rubber. These include aluminum front and mid skid plates, functional rocker protection and Goodyear Duratrac tires. With this new trim, Chevrolet offers four distinct Colorado levels of off-road capability: - Colorado Z71: Z71 Off-Road Suspension, automatic locking rear differential and unique 17-inch painted wheels and all-terrain tires. - New Colorado Z71 Trail Runner: Adds additional off-road protection to the Z71 trim with the Colorado ZR2’s front and mid skid plates, rocker protection and 17-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires standard. - Colorado ZR2: Compared to a standard Colorado, the ZR2 features a factory-installed 3.5-inch wider track and a suspension lifted by 2 inches. Class-exclusive features include front and rear electronic locking differentials and Multimatic DSSV Dampers. The ZR2 also features front and mid skid plates, rocker protection and front and rear bumpers modified for better off-road clearance. - Colorado ZR2 Bison: The ZR2 Bison adds even more extreme off-road capability with five hot-stamped Boron steel skid plates and stamped steel front and rear bumpers with front winch provisions and rear recovery points.
