  1. Hi Guys I have an 04 crew cab (sadly not a SS) Silverado thats recently had an aftermarket alarm fitted. The fitter couldnt tie my factory remote locking / unlocking in with the alarm so I currently have 2 fobs. Not ideal. I now understand an aftermarket part can be plugged into a factory port (im a useless techie lol) which will then enable the alarm to work the locking ? Please can somebody provide more info to the part I need ? I live in England and importing parts is now expensive, so I need to get the correct part 1st time. Im also upgrading my speakers ect. I read a Cruchfield article about upgrades so bought front speakers (missread and thought rear door speakers where same as fronts, doh !) and rears. Just the A pillar tweeters to change but what size ? My trucks not here so cant go out n look but want to get them ordered.
  2. Oh and a little update how my trucks come on in 2 years lol
  3. Just seen an SS for sale on EBay and the owner has fitted just the tailgate part of the Intimidator spoiler along with a roll up bed cover. I guess its ok ? Anybody else on here done the same ? Like I said, a lot of shipping for a maybe fit ?
  4. Now all sorted. Managed to pop it back in with the aid of a wooden broom handle. Hopefully it helps with the condensation, put 4 moisture absorbing bags in there too.
  5. Never thought about pulling it in Richard, thanks for the that idea. Its not damaged. Will get pics tomorrow as truck and my 57 Chevy are in another location to home.
  6. Hi Guys The passenger rear vent in the back cab panel on my crew cab is part way out. I think the previous owner ran a cable for a reverse camera out of it but ive now pulled the cable. How can i pop the vent back in ? Not much room between the cab & bed. Im pretty sure this isnt helping with a condensation issue im having.
  7. Few pics of my 04 Crew cab
  8. Thanks for the info Richard. Everything is moulded in on the Duraflex copy. The centre mesh is provided but thats it. I use a shipping guy who brings containers or parts from New Jersey to England. It was only way to get it here due to the size of the box. I guess a GM bumper and everything would have cost more than double but would have been less body shop hours ?
  9. Thanks for your replys. It was only the lower valance that needed to be removed. Its now fitted after a lot of work. My body guy had to cut / repair it in 7 places to get it to fit right. A real pain in the butt. I imagine anybody using tape to hold it on would be crazy. I didnt fit the front fogs as there was a big gap due to the air ducts being a different shape, so got some mesh to match the centre opening. Its too late now, but I asume that genuine SS bumpers are no longer produced ? Heres it all finished
  10. Thanks Richard. I had that diagram someplace but couldnt find it. Yeah thats the impression im getting with the duraflex bumper. It doesnt come with any brackets or anything. Lets hope my body guy can polish a turd ! Guess shoulda done more research before plunking down money. My chrome metal front bumper is scraped & dinged, so the cover seemed a solution and the SS appeal.
  11. Hi Guys Sorry I dont have a SS nor fitting a gennie SS front bumper, so hope somebody can help. I purchased a Duraflex SS style front bumper for my 04 Silverado. After spending a fortune shipping it to the UK, its now at the bodyshop for fitting. Does anybody have info on how to fit it / secure it ect ? Pretty sure I read the lower valance needs to be removed and also some guys have kept the front fog lamps in place ? My body guy has 40 years experience but never done one of these before. My trucks in the shop now, hence the urgency.
  12. Looks like the rear spoiler wont fit with a bed cover
