GM-Trucks.com is happy to announce the birth of our brand new 2019 Silverado LTZ. The healthy blue baby was born around August 8th or 9th and weighs about 4,900lbs. Baby blue is 231 inches long and has been assigned a VIN number of 8864. He was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Our delivery dealer is also excited for him to arrive via rail and truck but has to wait for baby blue to be invoiced before they know when that will be. Our big guy should be in our loving arms within the next month or so. 

 

The GM-Trucks.com family is so happy to accept this pickup truck into our lives. It has a long life of care and love ahead of it. Many a photo and video will be saved of baby blue's life. 

 

Friends wishing to send congratulations may do so at:

PO Box 63

Henniker, NH

Donations to our mods/accessory fund will be happily accepted to allow baby blue to live a full and extremely powerful life. 

 

But in all seriousness, we'll keep everyone in the loop as we learn more. It won't be long until our 2019 Northsky Blue Metallic LTZ is in our garage.

At least you got to see your color in person before you take delivery of yours.  Contrats!  Have you picked out a name yet?

Weighs 7000#?? I think you're confusing GVWR with curb weight... Curb weight is the weight of the vehicle minus any passengers or cargo. ... It still has all the necessary equipment and fuel but doesn't have any added weight that isn't built into the car. The gross weight refers to the car's total weight when it has added passengers and cargo.

 

 

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Pickup truck
 
Towing capacity: 5,600 to 9,400 lbs
MPG: Up to 18 city / 24 highway
Curb weight: 4,517 to 5,333 lbs

Yup, that's embarrassing. I'll fix it. :lol:

Yeah, I was so nervous! Thankfully it's a wonderful deep blue metallic that looks sweet.  No name yet. We have to take it for a spin first before we know what he wants to be called. :lol:

Nice. I tend to be a blue truck guy, but took a break from crazy upkeep by going silver for a change.

Definitely looking forward to seeing this truck develop. Is it a crew or double cab?

That is a darn nice color... I may consider going away from dark gray on my next truck if that shade is still available when it's time for a new truck in another 3-4 years..

      Currently in the process of trouble shooting a p0304 code. Ruled out a bad coil pack by hooking an ohm meter to it and also swapping cylinder 2 & 4 to see if the the Mis fire would follow. Replaced spark plugs, plug wires, and put a can of sea-foam in the intake. Not hearing any abnormal sounds coming from the engine while running. Just a steady misfire on 4. I’m thinking it is a bad injector. Anyone else experience something similar, and to also see if anyone yet has tackled changing the injectors on the new models. Thank you

      Last night I found my passenger side carpet saturated with water in my 2015 Silverado 1500. I lifted the carpet up and found the underlay soaked and a pool of water in the floor pan. After searching the internet I found this is a common problem with many potential sources. The shark fin antenna, leaking seams behind the front fender, through the firewall, and from under the cowl by the windshield wipers. I don’t think mine is coming from the radio antenna or from behind the fender as it is running straight down the firewall from behind the glove compartments. It is raining steady here today and my truck has not moved and it is a steady stream running from behind the glove box. Does anyone have pictures or a better description of where I should be looking on the firewall or under the wiper cowl?

      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.

      Anyone know how difficult it would be to upgrade the rear view mirror?  My trail boss came with a "dumb" mirror.  No auto dim, no compass, no onstar, no temp read out, nothing.  I'd like to at least have auto dimming, compass, and temp read out.  Rear view mirror camera would nice too.  Is there any chance that the wiring is already there for it and I just need to simply replace the mirror and plug it in?  
       
      I've seen a lot of aftermarket options and some of them look pretty neat, but for the most part they attach to the existing mirror and I'd like to find something that is as close as possible to stock looking.
       
      Thanks!
