GMC MultiPro Tailgate Information

Recommended Posts

I’ve not used it to it’s full capability yet on the AT4, but it definitely takes all effort away from getting into the bed for wash days, etc. Even for something as mediocre as grocery getting (I have a hard bed cover), it brings practical use back to the truck bed. It’s also going to come in handy when ham radio antenna mount time comes. 

 

I can’t wait for summer in order to put it to it’s full use - loading the gen set, furniture move from across the US, etc. I’m planning to add a travel trailer this year, so I can only imagine it’s going to make gearing up that much easier.

Yes, the power up is exclusive to Silverado. Standard on HC and optional on LTZ. I find it to be very very handy actually.

Well for now, there are many 2019's sitting on the staging lots in Fort Wayne Indiana due to warped or ripples windshield glass and problems with paint.
So wonder no more 
The what! Can that happen to windshields?

I know from seeing at a dealership that they have a handle that you can use in conjunction with the tailgate to get in. Does anyone know if they can used and installed in the 2014-2018 series trucks?

No, why would you want to? I know from my personal experiences getting into my truck bed takes a split second...ok, now it’s lifted it takes me one full second. I don’t care to be fondling a tailgate to get my truck bed and things in the bed more secure. Just more unnecessary things added taking away from other areas. Not cutting down anyone that has this tailgate but it just doesn’t do anything for me. Widen the truck bed great but sectional pieces belong on couches lol

Definitely millions, look at the F150 block heater recall as a very rough example, new heater and cord $150 from Ford plus 2hr labour ($200). Times 300,000 trucks, = $105,000,000 recall program.

      Is there any preventative maintenance that can be done with the tailgate latch? Mine ‘18 seems to be getting a little tough to open and although it’s under warranty I thought if I could lube, grease, silicone, spit on, or whatever it takes to loosen it up it’d be nice.
       
      Thank you for your consideration and as a side note I will not be having a garage sale this weekend.

      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!

      Hello guys, I recently bought a new 2018 Sierra Denali, loving the truck. All that enjoyment came to an end this morning when i was going into costco and hit the curb of the parking lot entrance at about 15 mph. The whole truck bounced off of the curb so it felt nasty. I got out and checked the damage and I shred a bit of the tire and scratched the rim. I am very paranoid as if it could have damaged anything internally, what do you guys think? Could I have damaged something else? Here is a picture of the visible damage. Edit: it is the front driver’s side wheel.

      A few months ago we started to notice something on our 2019 Silverado that no owner of a brand new vehicle wants to see. Rust. Specifically on our rear bumper, just around the plastic step. It wasn't huge and didn't spread very far from the edge... but we couldn't stop noticing it. There was no excuse for rust on a 8 month old vehicle with less than 10,000 miles. The photo above shows the minimal but noticeable rust patch. It was even happening on both sides and in the same place. The issue seemed odd. 
       
      Unfortunately, we've just been too busy to bring it by to our local dealership for them to look at. Lucky for us, our procrastination has paid off, because in the time between us first noticing the problem and getting off our lazy asses to drive to our dealer, GM has released a TSB about this very issue. 
       
      It appears that on most of the early trucks, production of the bumper was completed incorrectly. The steel assemblies should be bent into shape then chrome plated. But that didn't happen in a small part of the early bumpers. The supplier bent the area around the side step after the bumper was chromed. The new folds in the steel damaged the chrome, cracking it and making the truck susceptible to rusting. 
       
      What's the fix? If your bumper is rusting already, Chevy and GMC will replace it. If it has not yet started to rust, they will apply an automotive grade wax/sealant to prevent rust in the future. 
       
      If you're unsure if your 2019 has this issue we suggest doing the following:
      1. Give your truck a bath for heavens sake!
      2. Clean the rear bumper step area with a hose or pressure washer. Front and back! We find lots of dirt collects behind our step in the bumper assembly.
      3. Inspect around the foot step area and behind the foot step area. We found rust in both areas!
      4. If in doubt, wait for it to rust and kindly ask for a new rear bumper. 
       
      Our dealership, Banks Chevrolet in Concord, NH has been great getting our rust issue fixed. Our service adviser Justin has kept us in the loop during the repair and gave us a loaner Silverado LT while they have our truck. He even made sure any other outstanding service updates are also applied to our LTZ while it was in the shop. As it turned out, there were six open issues that needed addressed. 
       
      Here's the official Service Update you can print out and bring to your dealer when you take your Silverado or Sierra in for service.
