I recently bought this clean title, high mileage 2000 Silverado LS Z71 from my coworker. It was right before Christmas and I really wanted to help the guy out knowing full well I could do something with it. Heck, I needed a truck after all. I get home and attempt to drain the oil but nothing comes out. After some poking around with a screwdriver, I get it to drain. Chunks are flowing along with the oil and it turns out there was so much sludge build up in the bottom of the pan, it sucked some up, suffered a momentary loss of oil pressure and spun the bearing. I know the transmission had a hard shift from first to second. Could it be low fluid? Maybe, but why do the swap just to find out the transmission is bad?
My coworker friend was a smoker and it appears he preferred his coffee without a lid so the interior is....interesting. Also truck only has oxidation on the hood and fenders so the only reasonable choice was to find a salvaged donor vehicle to source parts from!!
I have a buddy with a dealers license and I'm debating picking up this rear ended 2006 Escalade for a FULL front end/interior/dash/drivetrain swap. Can it be done? Plug and play? Anything someone doing something like this should know?
I've done some pretty crazy engine swaps and garage rebuilds, 2 stroke porting early on, etc.
I have the ability but hopefully you folks can chime in and confirm whether or not it is possible or if there is a better option. I was also looking at a 2004 Duramax/6speed which was t-boned pretty good as a potential candidate but there's something about that plush Escalade interior....
The end of December, I noticed a small amount of oil on the garage floor under the front of rear differential of my 2WD, 2019 High Country. It appeared to be a pinion seal leak. The Dealership concurred and ordered a new front yoke and pinion seal. Today, the Dealership called and informed me that GM did not have the parts so they sent a Complete new rear Differential as a replacement!! Now they need my truck for a Full day to swap rear ends. Appears to be an EXPENSIVE way to replace a $10 part, but GM must know Best!?

GM laid out a comprehensive advertising plan this past week to support the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra now that they are ready for volume delivery. One of the innovative ways that GM had promised to promote the trucks was via Amazon packaging adverts. As you know from our coverage here, GM is wisely partnering with Amazon whenever possible.
The images here are from Facebook 2019+ Silverado/Sierra Owner's club member Daniel Glauser. Daniel ordered up some products from Amazon and was nice enough to share the first images we have seen of the new GM promotional partnership with Amazon. Every little bit helps. What's your take on GM using this promotional opportunity?
Our thanks to Daniel for sharing his images.
What outdoor cover do you guys use to protect against the elements?
