Hey Yall, Im brand new to the forum but not to the brand. Ive been a Chevy guy my whole life and just now reaching out to the community to get some helpful advice.
I JUST bought a 2018 Silverado WT (5th Silverado Ive owned). I got an extremely good deal on it and was looking to throw some cash since I saved so much on the purchase.
I wanted to start with the exterior before tackling the interior. It has the black WT trim bumper and grille on it currently. Wondering how much work it takes to swap it for the higher trim bumper packages? Looking for reliable vendors, parts, etc.
Besides replacing the wheels, tires, and mirrors, I believe that is all I will need to make the exterior look like the LTZ package (High Country Maybe?), but any more tips and hints will be great.
Are there any threads on swapping the interior? Bucket seat conversion, Entertainment console, Center console, Door panels, audio system, the whole 9 yards.
Also looking for threads on leveling kits with tire size and what not. So if there are any helpful threads please let me know.
2007 Silverado 5.3 V8 with AFM with 180,000 miles
Truck had lifter ticking sound and white smoke upon every start up which would go away after a few minutes, no check engine light
Replacement list :
- valve gaskets
- upgraded drivers side valve cover
- valve stem seals
- intake manifold gasket
- exhaust manifold gasket
- 8 new afm lifters
- 8 new non-afm lifters
- head gasket bolts
- engine coolant temperature sensor
- spark plugs
- spark plug wires
- fuel injectors
- water pump
- cam sensor
- crank sensor
After completion of engine reassembly no longer had white smoke upon start up and no ticking sound but flashing check engine light code p0300.
Code p0300 was for cylinder #1, #4, & #7
Moved coil packs between cylinder #1 and #2 to see if coil packs was bad but no change. Set engine at TDC before installing the rocker arms.
All bolts have been properly torque and no parts have been left unplugged or uninstall.
Any possible advice would be helpful

I am trying to find something to fill in the space between the tow hooks under the upper front bumper without breaking the bank. i saw the mazulla offroad skid plate but i don’t want to spend $500 on a skid plate. does anyone have some suggestions to fill this space for a good price?
2012 Silverado 4X4 Ext Cab LC9 with 101k miles.
As the title states, I have a unique situation. The cab and bed are entirely off of my truck (T-bone damage), thus I thought this would be a good time to do a DOD delete as well as any other recommended upgrades or repairs WHILE THE CAB AND BED ARE OFF! I haven't looked at too many kits yet (Scoggin Dickeys, Texas Speed, WS6Store, etc) and still figuring what I need/don't need. Definitely would like to put in a mild performance cam if it isn't too much extra.
I'm new to these trucks, so I don't know all the weak spots other than the DOD system. Basically, I'm interested in bulletproofing the system much like 6.0 powerstroke owners had to do.
I just heard about the oil pickup o-ring. WTH! Wow GM.... Worth it to do this at the same time as the DOD probably. Something about a AFM plate in the oil pan? But I'm open to your input. What else? something about timing chain guides??? I vaguely remember something about a fuel system issue being pretty common as well?
Sorry if I am all over the place. SO many questions right now. I just got the cab off yesterday and pretty much planning on ordering what I need by the end of this week
Be doing all the work myself

I understand there are lots of tire threads on here as I have been through most of them on this forum, I am simply looking for anybody who might be running 285/65/18 Cooper Discoverer XLT's on a non leveled completely stock 14-18 Silverado?
The tire size is only slightly bigger than what would be on the 285/45/22 option Chevy offers in these years so I am just looking to see if there is anyone out there who can confirm this setup would work.
