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

Just placed an order last week.  I'll be stepping down from a 2016 2500 HC 6.6.

 

2019 Silverado 1500 CC standard bed RST summit white 5.3

Gideon/very dark atmosphere leather package

Max trailering package

Convenience package II

Performance upgrade package

All star edition

Safety package

Black assist steps

Underseat storage

Bed protection package

Advanced trailering package

20" wheels and all-terrains

 

I would have liked to have the Z71 package, but it cancels out the max trailering.  Would have like to get the suspension upgrade (lift), but not with the max trailering.  

 

Now the waiting begins

      Ever since my last oil change and recall service to the brake pad sensors, I have been hearing a frequent double popping noise on the right side of my truck, seemingly favoring the front wheel area. This noise is impossible to forcibly repeat, however, like clockwork it always occurs twice (two double pops) on my way to and from work (and yes, the road is absolutely smooth, no bumps or pot holes to cause this). This typically occurs at around 60mpg and every 5-10 miles. Everyone I have talked to including the service department at my local GM have no clue what is going on. The truck will be going into the shop soon for troubleshooting. Any ideas what might be going on? Anyone with a similar issue?

      I recently installed the upgraded digital dash in our LTZ that did not have it thanks to White Automotive.  The process turned out to be quite a bit more daunting than I had expected. I had found a few posts (here and another better start here) that talked about upgrading the gauge cluster, however I could not find any specific step by step instructions to gain access. 
       
      With plenty of reasons for everyone to access the radio, center console, and gauge cluster, I thought a step by step tutorial would make the project immensely easier for anyone willing to do it. And trust me, If I can do it, you can do it. 
       
      This "How To" is in first draft form. I just wanted to get it out there for anyone who wants to do this or has been struggling with how to get the specific trim pieces that are required off. 
       
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Tools needed
      7mm socket with 6 inch extension & ⅜ ratchet , plastic interior trim removal tools, T15 Torx bit
       
      Plastic Interior Trim Removal Tools are absolutely necessary. Using metal tools or screw drivers will 100% damage your interior!
       
      We used this kit from Amazon that costs around $16.  <------ This is not a referral link. Just being helpful and showing as an example. 

      Prepare by cleaning out center console, cup holders, charging area, side console storage areas, and by moving the front driver/passenger seats backwards. 
      Using towels, create a soft area to store interior pieces during work
       
      The Steps
       
      Pry infotainment decorative chrome/painted trim away, starting at the bottom around the HVAC vents on each side, then the top.  Remove square access cover directly next to the accelerator pedal.  Remove the 7mm screw under the decorative cover.  Place fingers in drivers side footwell console storage area and use moderate force to pull the side of the center console away.  You do not have the totally remove the panel. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose towards the top and front of the panel.  Do the same on the passenger side, however there is no screw to remove before the panel will snap out. There are approximately 8 clips to pull loose. You do not have to totally remove the panel.  With the center console lid open, use a pry tool to pop the clips holding the top of the center console area to the center console assembly.  Pull up and disconnect approximately 10 clips around the cup holders, charging pad and/or storage pad area  and up to directly below the radio/climate controls. Do not yank the trim too far away, there are wires connected to the bottom of this trim piece.  Gently position the tray as far rearward as possible without removing the wires, or gently remove the wire connectors and place the console on your soft area.  Using a pry tool, remove the thin, curved piece of trim directly under the piano key switches. There are five clips to remove, each releasing directly towards the rear of the vehicle, parallel to the floor of the vehicle. Release  two clips on each side then pull gently to remove the center clip. Position console tray (if still attached) to remove two T15 screws at bottom of infotainment/climate control unit.  Unscrew top four T15 screws holding infotainment/climate control in place at top of unit.  Using pry bar, pull infotainment unit away, releasing approximately 8 clips around the unit. Use caution, HVAC ducting will come out with the unit, so only pull directly out.  Disconnect Unit or lean out to continue on for access to gauge cluster.  Using a plastic pry tool, release the leather infotainment trim, but only along the side of the cluster.  Using a plastic pry tool, remove the leather gauge cluster hood. The approximately 6 clips are released pulling straight up.  Remove the fuse access panel on the driver’s side door opening.  Using a T15 bit, remove the two screws holding the HVAC/switch unit in place.  Using a pry tool, pull the HVAC/switch unit directly away from the dash. There are approximately 8 clips holding it in place.  Unscrew three 7mm screws holding the front cluster trim piece in place.  Using your hands, pry the cluster trim piece away from behind the steering wheel, including the trim piece on the top of the steering wheel column that is attached.  Remove four 7mm screws holding gauge cluster in place.  For 2019 trucks, slide red locking tab and lift cam lock to remove cluster harness.  Reverse steps to reassemble.   
       
      Please comment with any suggestions, edits, or comments. I'd like this to be as helpful as possible.

      Whats up guys, hope all you GM people are doing great. Ive got a 2017 silverado 5.3
      Broke my transfer case gears around a month ago and tc actuator, replaces the gears with nitro gears and axles 4.11 and a new actuator. My truck is modified so i dont have warranty, costed me a lot to get the truck fixed from the middle east and parts+labor is much more than what you guys pay in the states. Anyway everything was fine switched the  knob to 2-auto-4hi all was good on the road, i just kept the thing on 2wheel drive all the time. I drive usually in the desert/dunes and decided not to use 4 wheel drive at all unless im stuck. didn't get stuck for a good while till this weekend, got stuck switched to 4hi light changded felt the car turning to 4wheel and my friend gave me a tow and as soon as the car got out the sand got the service 4 wheel drive message. turned it to 2 wheel drive and light was stuck on 4hi however the car was not on 4 wheel drive ( did some doughnuts to confirm if the car is on 4 or 2 drive. Anyway now the car is back at the dealership and they want to charge me 2500 usd dollars just to pull down the transfer case and diagnose the issue. The mechanic said he assumes its the transfer case clutch.. Wanted to know your thoughts on this ? plus Isnt their an upgraded transfer case and clutch ? or a rebuild kit ?  What are my options if i want to upgrade the transfer case if i have any ? tried google and didn't find much. HELP!!!!!!!!
