2019 Silverado 2500 HD Tribute Edition - Thumbs Up Or Down To Flag Wrap?

We say two thumbs up. The Silverado 2500 HD has four Special Editions. There are the Tribute, Alaskan, Custom Sport, and Midnight Edition. The Tribute is an LTZ/Z71 with a black bowtie, chrome front skid plate and an American flag logo stretching from the "splash-up" area behind the front tire to the rear taillights. The flag is rendered in one color and is offset by the vehicle body colors. We think the blue looks particularly good with the white flag decal overlaid. Chevy has given the flag an "aero" look. 

 

We like the look and this reporter gives the look two thumbs up. What say you, GM-Trucks.com faithful?

Looks good, I like the blue.  All these "special" thingies just annoy me seeing as I still can't build a truck the way I want it.

Agree on both counts.  Wish I could get a new Chevy truck with 6.2L engine and the MagnetorWhatChaMaCallit suspension in a 1500 LTZ Z71.  I just don't need a 2500HD.

Yeah I'm becoming a broken record on the topic but it still aggravates me.  It's not just GM either they all do it.  The whole buy 10 things just to get the 1 thing you want and end up with 9 things you have zero desire or use for.  Stupid packages and bundles.  Why can't I be an odd ball that gets leather bucket seats, full console, no crap bose audio, no lane/crash/whatever nannies, and plastic flooring instead of carpet lol

I like our country but not to drape the flag over my truck. It's just not me, too pretentious.

Where's the red? Looks like the American flag on the nightly sign off on WROC-TV on a black and white tv. 

 

Back in the late 70s I wanted a new vehicle so I talked to one of the salesmen at the Chrysler dealer where I worked. Some of the oddities, on a 78 B100 van, if you wanted a passenger seat, it required a glove box door and a base for the seat. On a 78 Volare 2 door coupe, to get the E58 police 360, it require power steering. Automatic plus a bucket load small individual items, each one having its own list of sub options.  I think that was why most salesmen simply said you couldn't get that engine in a Volare. And, if you wanted the AM/FM Cassette radio, you had to also order power brakes. Sunroof also required power brakes.

Well mixed on the flag,; i do like it,  as color is critical, to make it "Pop". But i do agree with what others have stated above me. Why can't you order it Alacart? pieces and parts as you see it? Not someone else's, cookie cutter, vanilla wrapper what ever . . . How about a GREEN Truck? Imagine that? :D Truck owners are Outdoormens, but you cannot get a Green Truck? how can you be camo? Why is GREEN Not on the paint Chart? you can get Brown, mud color, or Dessert Brown, But What About the South? Truck Country! Lush Green Mountains, Valleys and Streams, But No camo colored trucks available? What's up with the Mini Me back doors too? That's a total waste of Production line time! i understand on "Packages" is based on production line time. But Why were Mini Me Doors introduced, to save fractions on metal? & Glass? When it is Four Doors, make it a Man's Truck! On production, we have computers now, dial it in, set up the majority items, then let the separate items "Skip / idle" by as accessories are installed or Not installed.

When I bought my 87 Mustang 5.0l LX hatch back, to install fog or driving lights, all I needed was the $19 factory GT fog light switch that plugged right into the space for it in the instrument cluster, where the wiring harness was sitting just waiting for the switch.  Under the front bumper there was a hole for the factory lights to go into, plus the wires with factory plug that was the mate to the plug on the factory lights.  Ford even had it completely pre-wired for fog lights, just plug the switch and the lights in.

I can recall buying used a 67 California special Mustang. It had a big block, factory roll bar, 4speed and an open rear end. Ford was big for not pairing the right options. Now they all go too far the other way.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I'm an engineer at Pacbrake and we are currently developing an air bag suspension kit for the new 2019 Silverado/Sierra (previous air spring kits). While I have CAD models from the manufacturer, nothing replaces working with the physical truck. We are looking for someone who would be willing to have a prototype air spring kit installed on their truck (we would need the truck for about a day in our shop), in return we offer a new air spring kit (installed) once the product is ready and/or cash compensation.
       
      If you're located in the Lower Mainland area of B.C. (our office is in Surrey), please get in touch with me on this forum if you are interested!
       
      cheers

      Need some opinions on what the heck is going on with my 2007 silverado classic. It has a 4.8 litre vortec with an afe cold air intake, edge cts2 programmer, gibson shorty headers, and a 3 inch catback exhuast. I have the code p0430 coming up but cant figure out what it is. Ive done a back pressure test on the cats, and did knock sensors and all O2 sensors a year ago. It doesnt feel like it has a misfire and im very mechanically inclined and everything in this truck is looked after. When i bought it there was a 4wd code and it wouldnt engage so i swapped out the button cluster in the cab and now it works fine. Other than that the truck has been perfect but id like to figure out what the heck is setting off the code. I have no exhuast leaks and the cats checked out perfect, anyone know what else it could be? Im looking for anything at this point, i hate check engine lights and have cleared it with the programmer but it comes back very shortly after being cleared. Thanks

      About to install a 2" motofab under strut leveling kit on monday, but am very concerned with torque specs. I can't find the exact torque specs for everything I need, and I don't even know how important it is for everything to be torqued exactly to specs. It's a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ, 4x4. 
       
      How important is it to be precise when torqueing? Does anyone know where to find all the exact torque specs for my make and model? Has anyone ever done one before, and can you provide insight?
       
      Thanks.

      Hello everyone,
       
      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!?
