  • Pictures look good Ryan. What kind of bedliner do you own?

    Dan...You make waiting for mine even more difficult. My LT is suppose to be buile next week, maybe I will have it by the end of the month.
  • Great job, pics look terrific and so does truck. I like the taillight guards. Are they the Westins? Saw them at Pepboys (pn#30-3035)? the other day, but couldn't bring myself to part with the $129 they had them priced at. Keep hitting the bushes at the end of driveway when I back out...maybe cheaper to cut the bushes...ha LOL.

    BTW you will find some great uses for the new digital camera..have fun

    So....where's the pictures of the Tundra? Whose rado is that, your neighbor's. I didn't want to see their truck....was there something special about the bedliner that you wanted us to see? You have quite a few pictures of the liner so I kept looking to see if there was something special about it... ;)

    BTW, I just can't wait for Tim's reviews....LOL

  • you've got a great lookin truck. better than any
    2500 i've ever seen. those tail light guards look
    alot better than the ones i've seen out here in
    la la land. only thing i noticed was that
    there's a small scratch on the left rear wheel
    cover. you gotta look real close to see it but
    it's there.

  • i think ryan just wanted us to see that there

    anyone to notice the scratched wheel cover.

    Dean

    BLACKMAXX - Tail light guards were supposed to be westin but i couldnt get em waited 46 days so i went with the go rhinos.

    I have so many pics of the liner cause it shows the tail light guards in those pics too.

    I armor alled the liner tonight. It was kinda looking greyish due to hauling cement and stuff. It has a nice black shine now.

    Scratch? Are you guys serious? Hmmm never noticed it. I do have one new scratch by the drivers side window.

    Thanks for your comments guys.

    Ryan

    Dean no its not a neighbors silverado. Only other truck on the block besides mine is the dakota you can see in the pic with my dads S-10 in the background.
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    Thats not a damn scratch. Its the glare. I took most of those pics at 6pm as the sun was going down so it was very bright out. I have pics of the scratch and dent ill have to scan those

    Ryan
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054

  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    It was an $80 digital camera.

    Yep the truck is garbage its junked. The guy at the junkyard gave me $100 for it last night. I am ordering a 2500 crewcab now. I figure why not waste $35K.

    i was drinking mt dew. 21 days till im 21.

    Whats with this short joke? I bet if you stood next to me you would be looking up.

    Speaking of license i need to get mine renewed thanks for the reminder.

    know if the Intel 1 Ghz processor is on constraint? Ordered a $3500 unit from Gateway last Monday. No TPW but delivery date has been set for 9/21. Kinda long don't ya think?

    Dean
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240

  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    caffeine and sugar content. The only one that surpasses mt dew is JOLT....It's not what it does to your teeth...it's what it does to your nervous system....now if you can counteract it with beer...it would be ok...LOL but ryan isn't supposed to be drinking beer for another 21 days...so careful on that mt dew

  • Hey Ryan, nice looking truck. Just looove the Indigo Blue & Black flares.

    What kind of bedliner is that? I'm looking at doing the Line-X, but the $400 is hard to part with.

    --Dan
  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    Rhino liner

    $399 - $25 coupon.

    Dan if your going to go with a rhino liner let me know before OCT 31st. I have a coupon for $30 off and a free set of tie downs ($19.95 value). Im not trying to sell you one just trying to help someone out and not let this go to waste.

    Did you get the flares on your truck??

    Ryan
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    uhhh...oh well...LOL

  • ryanbabryanbab Posts: 7,240
    Hey i was just asking him if he had em.

    Also tomorrows the day i am actually changing my oil myself should be fun. Ill let you all know tomorrow night after work how it goes. PF59 filter $2.73 bought 3 more

    Ryan
  • I believe I did read something in the last week regarding the 1 Ghz processors. I recall the article saying they were released a little prematurely (sounds like the truck I bought). I will look into it further tomorrow and get back to you with the details. Stay tuned!

    In the meantime, a great hardware site is www.tomshardware.com if you care to do some homework. Gateway makes a great machine IMO

    funny how this can be related to trucks. The Intel 1.13 Ghz are being recalled as Intel in their rush to beat AMD released it with some bugs. Sounds like my 'rado. Only problem is I'm waiting for a 1 Ghz not a 1.13 Ghz. What's also funny is when you tell them to cancel the order cause I'm just gonna order a Dell? All of a sudden I get upgraded from 2nd day air to next day air. A little more negotiations and now my next day air delivery charges are waived ($150). I wonder what next week will bring when I tell them I'm going to order a HP or Micron instead...LOL Bottom line, Gateway is/has the best configuration and I'll guess I have no choice but to wait...like buying a truck, can't let them know that....BTW, thanks for the link.

    I just had a dealer tell me that my 00 Silverado will not run with the radio removed. He said the speed sensor signal won't get to the transmission and I wouldn't be able to go above 10 mph. What kind of whacko design is that???
  • vince4vince4 Posts: 1,272
    Yes, the TSB is for that problem. The problem is that the butterfly valve in the throttle body sticks. The fix is to replace the throttle body assembly.
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    trans...so the radio broadcasts the signal to the trans? I think what the dealer was trying to explain was the theft deterrent. If the lock code is enabled on the radio, removal would trigger the passlock. The BCM would notify the VCM/PCM to disable the fuel injectors and stall the truck. I'm trying to do this from memory so I may have the abbreviations mixed up but I hope you got the general idea.
