....and the Limited trim level starts at about 65k for a super crew cab 4x4.  It'd be cheaper to get a Raptor.  Raptors start at about 54k for a super crew cab

That alone would be a deal breaker for me if I was in the market.

 

It's MY truck, I should be able to do what I damn well please to it. Can't say I'm surprised to hear that. Just another money grab by GM.

 

Hey GM - how about EARNING income on merit, instead of stealing it via EXTORTION?

Told the wife some years ago after the bailouts; "When they can no longer find ways to earn my money they will devise ways to STEAL it legally". She thought me a nut then...not so much now.  They however I meant in a much larger context but this is a good example. Extortion it is then. These prices are twice what I paid for my 2015!!! No sir, they are NOT twice the truck. This isn't the first time this has been tried. Remember the early 70's? Locked us out of your cars....for a while.....better computer tech now. Maybe it will stick.

So I wasn't on this sight when the '14's came out.  Was there this much hatred for them as there seems to be for the '19's?

The hatred started when people paid good money for a new truck ... and they started burning oil at 250 miles away from the showroom (among other issues, like failed injectors, cracked dashboards,  failed front end components, etc., etc..).

 

2009 was a REALLY bad year it seems. I remember one guy's video titled "Hey, look at my new truck" .. or something to that effect - it was idling in his garage, and you couldn't see your hand in front of your face from all the smoke.

 

If they're going to charge a premium price, you'd think they'd make a little extra effort on quality control ...

loved my 2009 DC. Had it for 8 trouble-free years and would still have it if I didn't have to go bigger with a CC.

They appear to be in progressive order and with the chrome bumper and grill I'm pretty sure it's the LTZ.

Yes.  Same with the Tahoe's and Yukons.

 

Happens with all new models, especially GM ones.

Love that truck.  I would have to turn down the chrome a little though.  I'd like to see it with the LT grill.

      I would like to change the regular bulbs in my Front turn signals on my RST to LEDs. Does anyone know what bulbs these are (they are marked 855)? Any recommendations on LED's that won't require resistors?

      When you take delivery of a brand new 2019 Silverado, you'll be faced with a few choices beyond which trim level or options you want. You'll also be asked which accessories you want to be installed on your truck before it rolls off the sales floor. Most GM accessories can even be factored into the sale price and financed. So, we're setting off to try out some of these certified accessories that are available for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Our goal is to let you know if they are worth the cash or if you should take a pass. 
       
      We've always loved the look of a blacked out bowtie and the idea of one that lights up seemed too cool to pass up. So we headed to our local dealership and ordered the 2019+ Illuminated & Blacked out front bowtie. Here's how it went and what we think. 
       

       
      What is it?
      Chevrolet Illuminated Grille Bowtie Emblem in Black
      Part Number: 84069488
      MSRP: $275.00
      Manufacturer Website: https://accessories.chevrolet.com/
       
      Main Features
      Doesn't effect your factory warranty Direct replacement for the standard gold bowtie Same quality as original parts Wiring harness is plug & play and matches factory wiring  

       
      Here's the bowtie and grille as it came from the factory. 
       
      Installation
      The first step to install the illuminated bowtie (or the non-illuminated black bowtie) is to remove the front grille. The grille on our LTZ was easy to take once we understood how it was fastened to the body. The entire process runs around 30 mintues  We'll be covering how to remove the grille on the 2019 Silverado in detail soon. 
       

      A plastic trim removal set makes this process much easier. 
       

      After a little bit of pulling and careful prying, the entire front grille section comes off. Note the grille can be removed without having to take off any body panels or reach under the vehicle. This is a huge improvement over past Silverado generations, which required more disassembly to access the grille mounting hardware. 
       


      The grille is a solid unit. Switching it out with another trim level's grille would be easy at this stage. This is also a good time to clean up the grille. 
       

      To remove the factory bowtie, release four tab clips on the backside of the grille. One is inside of the support post where you will also run the bowtie's wiring harness. 
       

      We popped out the bowtie and cleaned behind it before installing the new one. It was filthy underneath!  
       

      The included wiring harness plugs into the driver's side headlight harness. It then snakes through the radiator opening and clips to the bumper. We found it easier to run the wire through the grille and connect it to bowtie, THEN snap the bowtie to the grille afterwards. Attempting to plug the harness into the bowtie after it is mounted on the grille turns out to be extremely difficult. 
       


      We tested the bowtie to make sure it lit up properly before we attached the grille back onto the truck. 
       

       
      Our Impressions
      Installation of the illuminated bowtie turned out to be pretty easy provided we used the right tools. Our plastic trim kit was invaluable during the process, allowing us to pry and remove pieces without scratching them. The kit also didn't come with instructions, so make sure to ask your dealer for a set of them when you buy it. They can print it out for you. 
       
      The quality of the bowtie is on par with other factory parts and matches accordingly. The wiring harness looks similar to those already running under the hood giving the final fit a factory feel. 
       

       
      So while the look and feel of the product is excellent the actual performance of the illuminated bowtie left us wanting more. We expected an illumination effect with a similar brightness to our DRL lighting. Instead, the bowtie glows a dull white at light. During the day or bright sunlight the illumination effect disappears completely. We do appreciate that the color temperature of the bowtie matches the headlights and DRLs. 
       

       
      The MSRP of $275 is steep for the eventual lackluster performance. Excellent build quality, plug and play performance, a factory look, and no warranty interference offset the price to an extent. 
       
      If you want a quality replacement for your gold bowtie that adds a little more flare to your 2019 Silverado, the Illuminated Black Bowtie could be right for you. If you're looking for a bright centerpiece that stands out with the same intensity as your other lighting, this may not fit your bill.
