    SSS Is Not A Truck

    I am sure this is an extreme troll post but... you got me. I guess the original poster does now know the difference between 1/2 ton 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks. So if a SS is a 1/2 ton truck it should be capabile of putting 1000 lbs in the bed. Not 1700 lbs. That is like saying i can't fit 7 people in a smart car... well it was not made for that get an SUV. Well done OP on the troll post of the day! Cheers! Bobby

    2019 Silverado

    My favorite newer truck is the High Country with the brown leather interior. I think it is an absolutely beautiful truck. But to be honest I can not see myself shucking out that kind of money for a late model truck. It is crazy to me to pay 40, 50 or even 60K for a truck. Now that I am a little older...35 I am smarter with my money. I have my 04 SS and my wife drives a 09 mini cooper s. Both are paid for. I am not a huge fan of large car payments. To be honest I would rather buy and old C10 then a 2019 Silverado. I dont think they look very good and I cant see the value in them. But the good news is maybe in 4 or 5 years I can afford a 2016 High Country. lol.

    DUB Baller S116

    Blown 346... I just noticed you are from Rockford, IL? What a small world... I was born and raised in Byron. My mom lives in Rockford now. I myself have not lived in that area for over 14 years though.

    2004 AWD Drop

    Thanks for the reply's. I have had my truck for about 12 years now and it is bone stock.. lol... But I am going to put some love into her. The one thing about this truck is the body style has lasted the test of time and still looks great. But i am thinking new rims, and I have plans for a complete custom new stereo. I am on the fence about lowering it. I know a few places have some really nice kits. But one this is that the SS has been built pretty well and in 12 years and 130K miles I have no issue other than routine maintenance, change fluids and windshield wipers. But that's about it.

    DUB Baller S116

    Thanks for the info. Those look awesome man. My truck is black as well but an 04 awd. Looking to drop it too but it's it is a daily driver so don't want to sacrifice reliability for looks. Another question. How do you keeps your headlights so clear? Mine look so yellow like somebody pissed on them lol. Thanks again for the info Richard.

    2004 AWD Drop

    Gents, I was looking at lowering my 2004 AWD. I use it as a daily driver so looking for how it performs in the long run. If you have run into any issues with having the drop over a long period of time. It looks great but want to know if it impacts the trucks drive ability. Thanks, Bobby

    DUB Baller S116

    It looks like this is the proper one. 528-S116229577+31 It is the 6.5x5 with a 78.1 bore and 31mm offset. seem like these would bolt right up with no issue. What do you guys think? Are they the right ones?

    DUB Baller S116

    Guys, Looking to get a set of 22in DUB baller S116. They offer a bunch of options but I am not sure what ones fit an 2004 SS. I know they are 6X5.5 but not sure about off set and hub bore. This is the site I was looking at thoughts? https://4wheelonline.com/dub-wheels-baller-s116.251419.0 Bobby

    When do you consider your mileage to be too high?

    I know this is an old thread but.... I am never selling my truck. I am going to dive it until the wheels fall off then put them back on again. A new trunk these days are 30-60K and for me that is a lot of money. But an engine from ebay is 3k a rebuilt trans is a few k. It doesn't make sense to get rid of it. Yes, i will agree it does get old having the same truck for 11 years but I still love it. And i can tell you this much no car payment will bring me more joy then being debt free riding in a SS. It is old and has a lot of war wounds. I need to replace some cladding and other cosmetic parts but she still looks good after 11 years and i get compliments and somebody offers to buy it at least once a month. Now I will be honest, I am going to buy an OG SS one ove these days with the 454 in it. I really hated that maroon interior though. But I always thought it would be cool to have my 04 ss and a 90 ss.

    DIC Issues

    All, I have a 2004 SS bone stock with 120K miles on it. But for some reason when i am driving my DIC will turn off. All other gauges work as they should. If i tap on the plastic cover a few times the DIC will show back up, then in a few minutes turn back off. I have taken it out and reseated the connection. But after a while it goes back to having the same issue. Has anybody ran into this. Is it the cluster? Or a connection feeding it? I found on ebay there are some shops that rebuild them and i know a few guys here have taken them apart and have changed LEDs. Just wondering the your guys thoughts. Bobby
  11. Guys, I have a 04 SSS and looking to put an aftermarket stereo system. I am looking to upgrade the deck to a double din, replace the door speakers with components and put a couple of 10s under the back seat. I would say max RMS watts would be less 1500. Also, I live overseas in Italy so I cannot just run down to the local store for parts so I need to plan this upgrade out. I also use my truck as a daily driver and take it all over Europe so being reliable is a big concern. The options I am looking at are. Option 1. New Optima yellow top battery. New 145amp alternator. Big three upgrade and replace the serpentine belt and pulleys. Option 2. New alternator, serpentine belt and pulleys, Big three upgrade and keep current battery… Battery is 6 years old but is still in good condition. Option 3. Just replace battery with a optima yellow top and keep current alternator. What are your guys thoughts? Any other options I am missing? Thanks in advance, Bobby

    When do you consider your mileage to be too high?

    I have 118K on my black 04 SSS. Other than oil changes (regularly) the only issue I had was the anti lock brake actuator needed to be repaired. That's it. I also don't drive it like an **** either. I am only 34 but drive it like a respectable adult. If I want speed or hooliganism I take my motorcycle. My mom and sister are coming to visit me in Italy, I plan on loading that bad boy up and going thru 3 or 4 countries. I never had any issues and my truck has been to Germany, England, Italy, Austria. Not like there is a local chevy dealer where I can get parts #trust!
  13. I might be a N00b here but my manual for my 05 SSS says Auto Trak II is for Automatic Transfer Case (four-wheel Drive) and to use Dexronn-III Automatic transmission fluid for Transfer Case (All -Wheel Drive) hmmmmmmm I think I am going to go with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF that meets Dexron-III standards. and some Mobil 1 SAE 75W-90 for the reas and 80W-90 for the front. Thanks EXGM for the response... What you think will the Mobil 1 fit the bill?

    Looking to Buy Cladding

    I am looking to buy cladding for my truck. Looking to buy driver door and the piece just ahead of the driver door on the fender. My truck is a black 04 any color will work because I am going to get the truck repainted. Plus if anybody knows where I can buy cladding please let me know... Thanks, Bobby
  15. Hello, I have a 2004 SSS and need to replace the rear/front differential fluid along with the t-case fluid. I have searched the threads and there are wonderful how to's but what is the current products you guys are using. I live overseas in Italy so I cant pop down to the dealer to get this information (plus I trust your inputs more anyways). I am going to order it all off of amazon. Thanks in advance guys. Bobby
