In 01 I purchased a new 4x4 Silverado
1.I had the bed lined with rhino liner
2. Added a tailgate seal and tonno cover .
3. Still up in the air as to rustproofing . Not done
still not sure of value. Had cars both ways didn't see any difference in
4. Took my digital camera and took pictures of all the id tags engine tranny
glove box door tags ect . I could find on the truck and made a Excel sheet
to keep track of my truck maintenance.
But one thing I regret I didn't do was to put Die Electric grease on the
plug boots. I cant get the darn thing off now Does anyone else have
suggestions to someone who just purchased a new vehicle ?

Yes, if you are so inclined, remove the shock bolts, lube them
completley with grease or gear oil and replace them.It will make life
a lot easier when you go to change them at a later date if you live in
a salt belt area. Also I ALWAYS change axle lube within first 1000
miles or so on a new truck to remove breaking grit and before any
Oh yes, I loose/remove the 4x4 decal on rear side of bed shortly after
I get one because I think they look kinda silly anyway and I do not
need to be anal and advertise I have a 4x4 because a truck is just a
tool to me anyway.

Not my game. I have been owning and driving them for well over 35
years now and around them since I can remember.(My grandfather always
had a willys jeep of some kind around and use to push snow with it
too) My own first one was a 67 chevy p/u with a 283, 3 on the tree
and 4x4. Back then they were REALLY hard to find and it could take
months to order one and then maybe get it. Today it is like some kinda
brag badge for some to have a 4x4 symbol on their truck. Kinda like
the Z71 decal too. There was only one "Z" car that rated having its
number on it and that was the original and rare Z28. The whole Z thing
has gone down hill and been over played since then and kinda a dime a
dozen item now along with 4x4 decals.

In the japmanuals I read every day, this is a legitimate verb. To
them it means "to loosen". I figure that if Americans can use the
word "torque" to mean "apply the prescribed torque to", then certainly
both improperly funded Japanese to American translation operations -
and- an idiot on usenet are free to use the word "loose" as a verb.

That brings back memories of when the NUMMI Nova came out...
The FSMs were horrible.
The FSM for our 85 Tercel wagon was pretty bad also.
