Recommended Posts

Such a great forum and community. Great job to all the moderators and contributors.


I just got my 2014 Silverado a week ago and I love it.


My first truck was a 93 Sierra so I'm glad to be back in the Family. I traded an 09 Sierra in for this one. I couldn't be more happy for the upgrade.




- MyLink: I know some members have mentioned it being "laggy" but I'm completely happy with it. It's a computer. In my truck. That tells me the 5 day forecast and brings up Pandora faster than I could do it if I pulled my phone out of my pocket. Pretty incredible.


- Driving Feel: From the steering wheel to the power steering to the reduced road noise. It feels quality.


- Added Features: Cargo Light, Parking Assist, Back Up Camera, Insane On-Star incorporation. It's truly incredible.




- Not even close to having any major ones.


- Front Plastic Fascia: This is a full sized V8 Truck. But the ground clearance is so minimal it might have a hard time with some curbs. QUESTION: How necessary is it to keep that on? Will I completely alter MPG or ride if I take it off?


- Downward Stance: QUESTION: Has anyone put on a leveling kit they would recommend? I don't need to "jack it up" like I wanted when I was 16. But bringing up the front 1-2 inches would really change the look of it.


Possible Purchases:


- Tonneau Cover: I want a tri-fold that can come off easy. Would prefer a solid or hard cover but spending anything over $500 is more than I'm willing to do.


- Spray-In BedLiner: I'll likely just go with Rhino Lining.


- Bed Camping Tent: Because I plan on putting this bad boy to use.


Thanks for reading. Any comments would be great.
