A few questions about my 07 Z71


Recommended Posts

Thanks to the input from a few of you guys I'm now the proud owner of a 2001 Z71 LTZ with a lot of extra stuff I'm still learning how to use, it's quite a step up from my moms old 1990 miata, and it's pretty sweet if I do say so myself...

 

Now on to the questions/stuff I'm still learning...

 

I have no idea where the jack/tire tools are incase god forbid I ever got a flat, I havent found them in the cab, and I've checked under the rear seats, I'm hoping they didn't take it out...

 

The driver side window makes an annoying scraping sound that literally just started, sounds to me like i need to grease the tracks, but I'm pretty sure there's someone else on here that has a better idea, or can at least tell me if I'm gonna mess something up.

 

If anybody in here is from Connecticut... Do I have to have combo plates to use the bed? or was the lady at the DMV horribly miss informed? She told me I needed combo plates and I could at least get a ticket for having anything in the bed if I just use passenger plates.

 

Thats it for now, here's some pics from the dealer, only thing I've changed is I took the decal off the back window:

tools should have been under the backseat.

 

your window regulator is failing...seen it 100 times.

 

I'm from IL and everyone knows our state is ridiculous when it comes to motor vehicles....I have no idea how your states plate system works....

 

Nice truck though!

Thanks! I like it, I'm just mad they armor-all'd EVERYTHING... my feet kept slipping off the pedals on the way home lol, I guess they kept the tools... thats annoying but I have my own set I'll put in... They also kept the tow ball that attaches to the sqare peice in the back and the electric adapter... Guess I'm heading to ebay!

 

Would the regulater make that sound even for just the last inch or two? I forgot to mention that...

 

By the way, any suggestions for a good tool box that fits totally in the bed so if i put a cover over the bed, the tooldbox can fit under it?

Possibly, but GM has a TSB for greasing the regulator tracks on these trucks for noisy operation. I'd go that route first.

horribly misinformed. you only need combo plates if the truck will be used for work and/or if the gvwr exceeds a certain weight (im not sure what that number is though). my truck is registered with passenger plates.

 

ive actually had a cop come up behind me on the merritt, with my quad in the bed, stop passing me, pull behind and check my plate (or at least i think thats what he did), and then continue on his way. when i registered mine i had to request the passenger because she said they just assume all trucks will get the combo- which is why if you look almost all pickups in the state have the combos. i specifically wanted the passenger plate so i can go on the parkways.

 

here's the site: http://www.ct.gov/dm...?a=810&q=310268

 

bottom line- the combos cost more- its a money grab by the state (which is expected considering malloys super-gaap approved budget is 75 million in the red 6 months in).

I have read the TSB to grease the regulator tracks but it will eventually fail if it is scraping.

 

In the last few years I have seen 0 trucks leave and not come back after grease has been added to the tracks.
