New Member - 2019 Trail Boss LT

Recommended Posts

I wanted to intruduce myself. I recently purchased a Trail Boss. I traded my 2015 Colorado which I had done a lot mods to and actually really liked the look of it. However, I started having problems with the lift and the truck shaking. Once I saw myself spending money in Fox shocks, replacing a rear axle, the inner and outter tie rods, sway bar links, etc and the shake didnt go away, I traded it. I took a loss on it since I had put well over $8,000.00 on mods.

 

Im gonna keep it simple with the trail boss since it already comes fully loaded and lifted. Will be doing mainly aesthetic mods to it.

 

So far Ive got it tinted, installed a gator recoil bed cover, installed the old amp and subs that i took out of the Colorado (waiting on groundshaker dual 10" sub box which should arrive Wednesday), installed some pedal covers  Chevy letters on the tailgate recessed logo and underglow lights for the interior in blue.

 

On order I have the Gibson catback, door decals, mgp caliper covers, coyote wheel spacers, RGBW rock lights, black silverado emblem for tailgate, 4x4 emblem for tailgate. Ill change the wheels eventually. Sorry for the long post.

Welcome.  I don't think you'll be satisfied with the Gibson.  I had one on my '16 and it sounded like crap.  In V8 mode it droned like crazy and when the AFM kicked in it sounded like a crop duster on steroids. I immediately removed it for a GM Borla and was very satisfied with the sound.  Will never buy Gibson again.  Some members here are just removing the OEM muffler on their '19's and like the sound and say there's no cab drone.  If I buy another catback it will be Borla.  Here's the GM Borla thread and below it the thread on the muffler delete with sound clips. Check 'em both out :thumbs:

Thanks for the info. I guess Ill give the gibson a try. Im used to running the Corsa but didnt see one available that will allow me to keep the tips on the bumper. If I dont like it, I guess Ill try the Borla or see if Corsa comes out with one. I grabbed the Gibson on discount from Real Truck. Hopefully it will be okay.

Congrats on the new truck. Yea, so far I love the truck. Dosent need that many mods to look awesome and it drives very smooth with the factory lift. I loved my Colorado but it drove horrible with the RC lift. Here is some pics of the old baby.

I got the Gibson at a great price as well.  Clamps are the old obsolete style U clamps that crush the pipe and don't seal.  The Borla has the newer style band clamps. Just better fit and quality all around.

So I got a few things done. Installed some decals on the doors and installed a amp and with 2 10's. Used the box from Groundshaker. Here is a updated picture. I know I said I would change the wheels later on but pulled the trigger on the Fuel Maverick.  Im sticking with the stock tire. Also installed the swing tool case. Happy so far.
