Following our recent post, “Own a Silverado? Have a Beard? Want to Be In a TV Commercial? Here’s Your Chance!,” the folks at Jigsaw casting in Toronto reached out to us to let us know that, somehow, the source we used for the casting call for Silverado owners had some bad information. Sylvia Lee from Jigsaw let us know today that Jigsaw is looking for Silverado owners, but the beard thing is not part of the required qualifications. Here is Jigsaw’s casting call info for those who might be interested. You can view the full details along with a direct link to Jigsaws post here:

 

Jigsaw Casting Ltd. is seeking Silverado Owners from across Canada for a National Ad Campaign!

Description

We are seeking Canadian Individuals / Families who drive a Chevrolet Silverado for a TV & Online commercial! Does this sound like you or someone you know?

Looking for:

Silverado “Helpers” - Seeking individuals or families that have stories about using their Silverado to help

out/give back to their communities or to a cause within Canada. Must own a Chevrolet Silverado.

Examples of what we are looking for (But do not limit to just these):

B) Hauling heavy equipment to aid with fighting forest fires.

No. You don't have to be a real person. As long as you're not an actor.

      So I have a 04 Silverado crew cab z71 4wd. I have a 2.5 inch lift, cold air intake, and 285/70/17 mud tires. I’m looking to turn my truck into a little bit more of a power house. I plan on getting all new spark plugs (need help with which spark plugs) and a whole new exhaust from the headers back. (Also need help finding that). I’m trying to get the most performance out of these upgrades as I can as I am getting a inTune i3 8245 Platinum + Custom DiabLew Tune as soon as I decide what spark plugs, and full exhaust system I plan on getting. I want the most performance I can get out of these upgrades.

      Wards has named the General Motors 6.2-liter V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) to its  2019 Wards 10 Best Engines Award list.
       
      “General Motors’ thundering 420-horsepower V-8 in the Silverado exemplifies how engineers continue to find ways to improve efficiency without giving up something in return. DFM determines 80 times per second exactly how many cylinders require fuel to meet power demands. And, incredibly, it uses as few as two cylinders to propel the full-size pickup down the highway,” says Wards' Senior Content Director Drew Winter. “The truly amazing part is the cylinder deactivation is imperceptible, so seamless that the only thing the driver notices is fewer stops at the pump."
       
       
      Coincidental to the award, GM-Trucks.com has just taken delivery of a long-term tester with this very engine. 
       
      “Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.”
       
      The full list of Wards' 10 best engines is as follows:
      3.0L (B58) DOHC Turbocharged I-6 (BMW X5)
      6.2L OHV V-8 with DFM (Chevrolet Silverado)
      5.0L DOHC V-8 (Ford Mustang GT/Bullitt)
      3.0L DOHC TurboDiesel V-6 (Ford F-150)
      2.0L DOHC Atkinson i-VTEC 4-Cyl./HEV (Honda Accord Hybrid)
      120-kW Fuel Cell/Electric Propulsion System (Hyundai Nexo)
      150-kW Propulsion System (Hyundai Kona EV)
      2.0L DOHC VC-Turbo 4-Cyl. (Infiniti QX50)
      2.0L DOHC Atkinson 4-Cyl./HEV (Lexus UX 250h)
      3.6L DOHC Pentastar eTorque V-6 (Ram 1500)

      The EPA posted the new fuel economy numbers for a variety of Silverado combinations this week. The new 2.7-liter engine is one highlight. What struck us after reviewing the info is that the numbers are not that impressive. Chevrolet made a lot of noise about the new truck's aerodynamics and engine technology, leading us to get the impression that some interesting numbers would follow.  Now that we see the numbers we are not so sure. First off, there are 38 different Silverado 1500 combinations listed by www.FuelEconomy.gov. Four pages of different fuel economy numbers for the model years 2018 and 2019. You can find them all yourself on the site to view which interest you, but we are pulling out a few for discussion purposes. 
       

      First Up 5.3L V8 4x 4  2018 vs. 2019
      To our eyes, the 2019s (denoted by "K") look like they get lower fuel economy. Are we mistaken?
       

      Next Up 4.3L V6 4 x 4 2018 vs. 2019
      The 4.3-liter V6 was more efficient last year is our take. What's yours?
       

      Next Up 2019 2.7L 4-cylinder turbo in 2WD vs. 4.3 V6 in 2WD for 2018 vs. Ram V6 2019
      The reason there are two Silverados is one is the work truck, the other not the work truck. They get different MPG ratings. The Ram is the new mild hybrid eTorque V6. Hmm.   
       
      Our friends at Automotive News asked Chevy's Monte Duran why the new trucks have lower fuel economy numbers than the old and he replied, "We increased towing capacity, payload, and it's a much larger bed and a much larger cab."

      Hope you guys are doing well! 
       
      Found a lovely deal for a chevy 2016 - LT Z71 - V5.3
      This is my first truck and looking to lift it. found a good price for Rough Country lift kit - 3.5 inch
       
       
               
       
      BILSTEIN 5100: https://psp.ae/product/bilstein-performance-shocks-15/
      Rough Country KIT: https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-suspension-lift-kit-275-8.html
       
      Many people been complaining about how cheap the rough country shocks are, so I was thinking is it possible to install Bilstein 5100 shocks kit on this kit? or would they not fit into these?  
      This way I would lift the truck + level it + have some what better shocks
      I thought about selling the Rough Country shocks instead
       
      Your thought and experience are much appreciated!
