The official ordering, production & delivery thread - 2019 Silverado / Sierra

Recommended Posts

Just got this e-mail. I feel like a little kid running around toys r us. Except I’m an adult, and there’s no toy store. Ok so I’m running around my house.

 

Your Silverado has a firm build week of this week. That is some time between today and Monday February 11th. Please feel free to contact us whenever we can assist you.

Best Regards

I know how you feel! I got mine in October and I love it! After you get it, you will get up in the middle of the night just to look at it.

The worst time is when they have told you it is built and in the carriers hands.  Event code 4200.   It seems like forever for it to get to the dealer.  Feel like a kid st Christmas

EXACTLY! I was stocked in that black hole for 3 weeks, then another 2 weeks until I got it.

On a sad note. My son works at the GM tech center and had to watch half of his team get walked out the door today. I feel terrible for all of those getting laid off today. Very sad and due to poor management over the last decade or two.

If I were you I would add retractable side steps too (around $1600, I believe). I have them and I love them. I'm not sure how bad you are going off road. You should think about it. 

I'm not sure if you can add Premium package. I added to my LTZ. It is phenomenal.

Also, if you don't tow heavily, you should go with 3.23 axel ratio. 

By the way, I wouldn't waste my money with bowtie and splash guards. Instead, you should order under rear seat storage box which comes with lid. It is really cool.

I would check out the Z71 OFf-Road and Protection package to replace the Z71 Off-Road package.   It includes the floor mats as well as the spray on bed liner and in my case was cheaper than ordering separate

Not an option on the HIgh Country

Judging by his MSRP, he’s ordering a High Country so it would have the bedliner standard anyway, and no premium package needed.

I prefer the regular side steps (plan to change to all black)
Premium pkg, hmmmm have to look at that
Forget what the std rear axle is, 6.2+10 speed don’t plan to change that
Not going with the under seat storage as I haul my dog frequently and would rather have more room for him when I put up the 40 side

3.23 is standard. You’d have to get the max trailering package to get 3.42, but then no Z71 package, and also I don’t think the dealers are allowed to install that lift on a truck with NHT. Not 100% on that though.

 

My only 2 cents would be that the accessories are cheaper (sometimes half the cost) if you order them yourself from another website. Maybe the mud flaps are worth the extra cost to have them deal with the install, but the $135 bow tie is $62 online, and takes 4 seconds to install. Mats may be cheaper too.

 

Probably splitting hairs on a 65k truck but maybe you’d like to save a few bucks. :cool:

Yea I have thought about it. Guess I could save a bit and apply towards the clearbra, vinyl, and tint I am having added.

As far as the premium package, on an LTZ it’s a must. The HC is a bit different. It can be fitted with either the Premium or Deluxe packages. But everything in these packages can be ordered separately besides the specific 22” wheels. Most of the cost in that package is in the wheels and the sunroof. If you don’t want either of those, save your money and stick with the regular HC. You can’t get the Z71 package with either of those packages either.

Not a fan of 22s or a sunroof so don’t plan on adding those. I like the painted stock 20s

      My Suburban's sound system has recently gotten blown out. Does anybody know the size for the front and rear door speakers? I'm considering on putting an aftermarket sound system into the SUV.

      I have a 2005 Sierra 1500 with a blown gt5/g80 and a 2004 Silverado 1500 parts truck with a gt4. Just wondering if everything would be the same if I were to swap them or not

      Hello all,
       
      This is my first post on this forum.  Last year I bought a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext cab LT with a 5.3l V8 that is Flexfuel capable.  Well, I never intended to use flex fuel, but last week, I did so on the spur of the moment.  We drove about 3/4 of the tank gone.  Then as I was pulling up to the gas station to refill before going out of town for work, my truck's idle began dropping and feeling like it is about to stall out at idle.  This happens whether park is engaged or not.  I filled up, put some seafoam in my tank and drove about 1.5 hours to work.  It continued to idle like this all throughout the trip and even later when I went out and sat at idle while on my break.  What could be the problem? I can't imagine that an engine that is meant for flex fuel could get that messed up by it.  A side note: we had the transmission rebuilt in January, just in case that makes a different.  It has only been a few weeks since last oil change.  All fluids were checked and filled up at that time and have been checked a couple of times since.

      Just wanted to post on here, as I have seen no less than a thousand posts with questions about the 6L80E, specifically about the power threshold of a stock unit. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab Standard Bed stock 3.42 gears stock drive shaft stock 20" rims/tires 6.2L fully forged top/bottom end "Armageddon Twin Nagasaki's" (GT3582R's) e-boost 2 gauge Z06/LT4 fuel system 365lph in-tank Armageddon fuel pump QTP exhaust cut-outs and laid down 965rwhp/850 rwtq on a mustang dyno with 18psi on 116 race fuel (cut-outs open). I say all of this because the stock transmission detonated the 4-5-6 shaft (intermediate hub) near the splines. I took it to a "race shop" that said they would upgrade as much as they could; and was told at the time, there were limited aftermarket parts available for the 6L80E. This was mid 2018 with less than 10K miles on the truck and about 500 miles on the engine/turbo build and I discovered that was not entirely true. I drove the truck after their work,  with "spirited road driving" while the roads were wet no less. Long story short; they f'd me and I detonated the 4-5-6 stock intermediate shaft again within 100 miles and no traction at all. They apparently replaced all parts that were broken with stock parts! Moving on, I took my truck to a different shop and researched my a** off and found PATC Transmissions. I had a warm and fuzzy after speaking with them and ordered the Phoenix Level 4 Master Rebuild kit among a few other minor accoutrements and re-tuning of my TCM by Mike from Century Automotive. It is now APR 2019 and I am about 1 1/2 weeks away from having the my billet planetary gear mailed to me; for the new, more reputable shop in my area to install all of this PATC bada**ery. If anyone is truly interested, I will post new info once I put the new Phoenix Master Rebuild kit through the ringer with the full weight/horsepower/torque of my particular application...I hope this helps if there are some lost souls out there that may be headed down the same long. hard. road. of a "full send" like myself! Please post if you have questions/comments/concerns; as I have "been there done that and forgot the t-shirt" with the L86/6L80E so far.
