    ..talked to my buddy today....he says about $150 to $200 tops to do it for me.....that will work...(as yes he is a pro)

    Now I just gotta sell this pig and get an HD ordered!

    I saw a 2-tone today..(blue and pewter)...and the second color starts where the door changes...and the entire molding is painted to the lower did you do yours? looks like there will be no need for new moldings as they are not even coming off?

    He also said it will be no problem to paint the flares like I have now..(assuming that's what it will have when I get it)

    So since they pimped me on orange...carmine/gold it is boys....2 tone!

    ..and yeah babs....your pictures haven't been showing up

    Damn picturetrail

    go here to check out pics


    i only have the front floor liners. They work great. They were filthy (dried mud small rocks) and i cleaned em today. Vacuumed and wiped em with a damp cloth and they look like new.

    I do not have the rear floor liner. I am thinking of getting it. For now i have black towels covering the floor in the backseat. This works fine for now

    anyone out there know what is new for 2002 gm 1/2 ton truck (ie, sierra and silverado). I heard rumor of 4 wheel steering and 17" wheels but nothing substantiated.
  • mgdvhmanmgdvhman Posts: 4,162 says Sunset Orange is still an option?...course that don't mean nuttin'.

    It also doesn't let you choose a 4:10 rear with the 8.1!

    What's with that?

    plastic splash shields. They also have 3M tape. Each flare comes with one big plastic srew which you push in one hole to hold the flare in place while you install the other push pins. Then you pull back the backing from the 3M tape and push the flare up against the fender so seal it in place. There are two strips on the sides of the flare, and one strip on top of the flare.
    They are simple and quick to install. I was a bit leery about gluing the flares to the painted fender, but that's the way everything attaches now. I think the tape just pulls the flare tight against the fender - the pins keep the flare attached to the truck.
    This is all for the factory replacement flares, not the matte finish flares that come with the truck when you order it.
    Pretty soon you will be as cool as Ryan with your new flares.:) :)

    Ryan et al,

    Well took my truck in this past Friday to the dealer for 3 things.

    1. Oil Change
    2. Mud Flap Installation
    3. Squeak in back of driver inside cab.

    Parts guy told me that they DID make flaps for my truck WITH the wheel flares but they would only fit on the back. So I bring the truck in and the service guy calls and says they do not make them. I tell him the parts guy two days prior said they did.

    Service Manager calls me back and says he has checked and they do not make them. I said whatever.

    Service Manager says my truck is "quiet as a mouse" and that he test drove it himself and heard nothing. He then tells me that its a truck give it time to get more mileage on it... WHATEVER! So the only thing they did was an oil change.. BIG DEAL. I could have done that myself...LOL

    Bottom line is it seems all dealerships do not want to deal with petty stuff.. or even major stuff until your car/truck is out of warranty.

    So I guess I will end up ordering Husky flaps myself and as for the squeak.. I spose I still have to figure it out for myself as well. If I have some time to waste (NOT!) I will make another appt at another dealer and take THEM for a ride to prove that there is a SQUEAK! LOL

    dealer service centers have great personal don't ay think? first thing they're taught is how to write "could not duplicate" on service order. taught me to find a patch of road around the dealership that would produce the noises I was hearing before going in. then take the shop foreman for a spin down the street that will produce the symptom. found out the first time I ever took my truck in that shop foreman, and some techs. are hard of hearing, and can't feel or see. got tired of wasting my time too. now I go straight to the service manager and usually get the results that someone should get the first time.

    did i not answer the flare question correctly?

    All questions are answered in less than 24 hrs guaranteed unless i am out of town fishing where i have no access to a phone line or cable line.

    I did redo my wade bedrail cap yesterday. Took the whole darn thing off peeled all tape off cap and truck (what a pain in the rear) and reapplied. Fits like a glove.
