Engine bay got you down...Clean it up with a new cover.

Recommended Posts

Still working on an emblem plan to do in the middle circle over the throttle body but it looks a bit nicer in the engine bay for now. This is on my 2014 Silverado LTZ Z71 with a 5.3L

Here is the logo that I made to hold me over for now. 3.5" is the diameter of the emblem that was there before.

Any suggestions let me know.

But yours came with a cover. 14 silverados didn't come with one. The 6.2 covers from caddilac fit the 5.3 and the 6.2 in the 14 silverados. Just have to peel the badge.

 

If anyone wants the pn let me know but it will come with a caddy emblem.

I can hear that high pitched scream now... Very nice.

 

 

OP, great mod. Might as well add the p/n to the original. Looks right at home.

Part number added to original post.

 

If I could afford the supercharger right now I would be without covers too.

 

Keep in mind peeps that the part comes with a caddy emblem on it. Takes some removal and cleaning to get it off. I'll update later when I figure out a better solution. My brother and I are always looking.

That really does look great! Really dresses up the engine bay in a very "clean" way.

      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.

      This may have already been posted, but I couldn't find it...
       
      From 04-19 the bed size of the Chevy Silverados are very similar. Less than 1.3" in either direction for the 5'8" Crew Cab beds. We have purchased 14-18 covers that fit perfectly on 2019's. With a measurement, I could determine if I should purchase two of the 04-06 covers for our other 2019 trucks. 
       
      Here's the inside dimensions I have found online for the trucks:
      04-06: 68.13" x 63.19"
      07-13: 68" x 63.63"
      14-18: 69.33" x 62.33"
       
      All of the covers that I have purchased will overlap the side rails by about 2" and tailgate by a little more, which in theory would mean that they would fit various trucks just fine. The problem is that none of the sellers post the exact dimensions, nor will they give that information when asked.
       
      I suppose this is so that buyers will have to buy the more expensive covers for the newer year trucks. The same covers, made from the exact same materials vary in price from $299 to nearly $900 from vendor to vendor and year to year. I understand supply and demand, but this simply feels like price gouging. 
       
      Anyone have any experience with this? I have put the 14-18 covers on 2019 trucks, and they fit just fine. Just wondering if the plethora of 04-06 $299 covers are of similar size.
      Anyone know?

      Hi. I have a 2018 Sierra crew cab with the shortest box.   Looking to buy a tonneau cover.  I’m down to the two I like. 
       
      Access limited cover.   Or the OEM gm accessories soft Tri-Fold.  Or hard tri-fold. 
       
      Anybody have either?  Can you comment on how they seal, do they last, or any complaints/regrets?     I’m in Canada. Snow, ice, and crap winters.  Lol.  
       
      thanks gents!

      Hey everyone,
       
      First time poster, long time lurker. I have a 2016 Silverado 5.3 LTZ with the short bed (I assume 5' 8" bed) that came from the factory with optional tri-fold  tonneau cover. I thoroughly enjoy this driving this truck and have only had a minor electrical driver seat issue when it has rained excessively but that is not the point here. I recently purchased a low profile toolbox and, as such, I cannot use the cover that came with the truck any longer. My plan is to sell it and purchase a shorter cover that is made to cover a bed with a toolbox. I have read several threads on this site vendors that sell them but my issue is how to sell the current cover? Advertise locally on CraigsList or what? 
       
      Seeing as though it was $920 accessory from the factory, I don't plan on giving it away but I know I won't get anywhere near that price for it nor do I expect to. It has the normal wear from the elements and I do plan to clean it and take pictures when I get ready to sell. Currently stored in my workshop.  
       
      JUst throwing feelers out there to see what my options are at this point.
