That Front Head Light package is week vs what many have done to their 2014-2015 Trucks... DropKicks Truck is way better...

 

Really, those ebay lights? Definitely do not agree there. Clean and simple > excessive and ostentatious....

 

They gave a base model 22k truck the same headlights many luxury cars have, and now those same owners that have done that won't have to anymore. Not seeing the "weak" part. Guess you can't appease everyone. First they are weak and old school so people complain, now they are industry leading, people complain...

Yup... Those E-bay light are better IMO... Mainly because of the Day Time Running LED's... The 2016 design is.... Yup, you guessed it.... WEAK!

Ugh. Cmon Chevy! Listen to your customers and GET THAT FRONT END OFF THE GROUND! That is lower than most cross over SUVS and many cars. How are we supposed to do any work off road with a front end that is that low to the ground?

      Okay so I broke my foot a last month so my truck has been sitting during the winter. Just recently the check engine light has came on. 
       
      I used my code reader and is said the thermostat was running cold. 
       
      And the engine fan automatically comes on and stays on for a little even after I turn the truck off. 
       
      My question is there a simple fix to this? Or would this require a replacement?

      Hello everyone. I've recently purchased a 2020 Silverado 1500 from a dealership. I found out late in the sale that the truck was used as the dealerships "loaner" which didn't really bother me even though I know people beat up those vehicles. Anyway, I'm pretty in-tune to vehicle sounds and I had a couple of questions regarding noises I'm hearing from my vehicle. 
       
      The first is a clunking noise and a physical jolt when I shift from Drive to Reverse. I have my foot on the brake and am on a flat surface. I notice it a lot after I've been driving for a while and go to back into my garage. I took the truck back to the dealership and they chalked it up to bad U-joints. They slapped 2 fresh sets on, but I've still go the issue. Any ideas what it may be? I don't feel like anything is going to fail, but I also don't like the sound and don't think it should be that way. I have another service appointment next week and I'd like to help them out with ideas considering they don't really seem to care.
       
      The second is a ticking noise coming from the undercarriage. I' got under the truck today and believe it's coming from the rear portion of the engine, but I'm not for certain as I've never been beneath the truck while it's been on a rack. The noise cannot be heard when standing at the front with the hood up, but I can hear it very noticeably when standing at the driver's door. I do not hear it as the engine is heating up, but that could be because every other component under the hood is loud as h*ll while the truck is heating up. Once the engine is approaching operating temp, it's very noticeable. As you can hear from the short video, it's every .5 to 1 second or so and is always present during idling. Again, may not be a big issue, but I hate hearing things on my vehicles that I can't attribute to something else.
       
      Thanks for reading my ramblings. I can try to post longer videos if anyone needs. Thanks in advance!

      Hey Everybody. I’m about to have my 2014 Silverado AFM deleted with stage 3 cam upgrade, longtube headers, l86 intake, l86 TB, 3200 stall, custom tune. My question- is their other things I must do to go with these upgrades? Truck is 4x4 but will soon be lowered. Driveshaft? New Trans cooler? Bigger oil pump? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

      I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado and I have been having trouble with the entire radio and screen .. I recently replace a bad HMI module that I got from infotainment.com and it solved the issue. Now the screen is back to black and the display where the gauges are says “audio off” any idea why ?? Anyone have this issue I tried everything. Maybe I need a new ACM module now? HELP !

      Opening this up to disabled and other Vets. We need a place to share. Isolation is death and not a good death. 
      How are my Brother and Sisters making it work? I’m struggling tonight. I’ve done a lot and overcome much. As I age the pain is overwhelming. 62 YO  90% disabled  VA combat vet of USNavy and USArmy.   Never asked for help and for 42 years have helped others.  My truck, the science of automotive technology helps me maintain my sanity. Any others here that feel the drain on the soul and body? My fingers and formally strac functions don’t function right anymore.  I love the constitutional basis of USA but wonder have many forgotten the rule of law? UCMJ? Caring about others before self?
