I installed genuine Chevrolet mud flaps on my truck today. I took off the Weather Tech ones, I didn't like them, to hard to clean... Before installing the OEM ones, I outlined the Bowtie with a gold paint marker. I think it looks good.

I ran out of the free dealer oil changes when I purchased it, so I did it myself for the first time. and since I was down there, figured i would remove El dam de air (finally)

also had some time to do a couple of things to the Subaru, but it still needs a lot of work

They're flat against the back of the wheel well. They don't wrap around the side at all. I imagine the paint on the lip of the fender where it wraps around and joins the liner will get worn.

No drilling. Some factory screws get reused and they have plastic clips that grip the lip of the fender. They seem sturdy. We'll see.

I tried to replace my rear brake pads with Powerstop Z23 pads in an effort to get rid of the squeak when driving over rough surfaces. Everything was going great until the last caliper bolt decided to break off inside the slide pin. You know that feeling....



I was all set to try and drill out the broken bolt but I lucked out and when the drill bit finally caught it unscrewed the bolt slightly. Seriously? Did I just get off that easy? Indeed I did. I backed the broken bolt out with my fingers but not before a few curse words had been uttered.


My wife and kid were ready to hit the trail on mountain bikes and this quick job is now screwing with our plans. To make matters worse the truck is parked half way inside the garage with a jack under the rear diff. I need to get the truck outside of the garage so I can close the door but I can't drive it or risk applying the brakes without the caliper bolted in place. *scratches head* Ahh hah!



Now I can put the wheel back on and push the truck out of the garage, gently. Then chock the front wheels so it doesn't roll down our hill. :)

The dealership was closed and Reibes didn't have even a listing of brake parts for our trucks. In desperation I tried ACE hardware but these are hard to find bolts! A call to O'Reilly turned up a bolt and slide pin for $11 and in stock! Turns out while the parts will work they are pretty janky and very lightweight compared to the OEM parts. Hmmm well this will at least get me to the dealership on Monday so I can get the OEM bolt.

Taking out broken bolts are a PITA, but trust me, taking out broken taps is worse!

For anyone that buys these - at checkout the website will suggest a right angle ratcheting screwdriver. I bought it. It makes the installation much easier. Without a similar tool the rear wheels would need to come off to do the install. I was disappointed to see it's Pittsburgh brand, the official tool brand of Harbor Freight where they sell it for $2.99. The ratcheting mechanism quit holding after tightening 4 T15 screws, It's junk. Do yourself a favor and buy a quality tool.

LOL I'm sure I'll get to experience that kind of fun eventually. I should probably break down and buy a vice so I'm ready.

Not free my friend, you spent $30,000 - $40,000 or more for an oil change at no additional cost.

Thank you ! Do you think they can fit a ZR2 Bison with the wider fender flare ?

Worse for me. I spent that amount and received free oil changes I will never use because I don't trust the dealer to put the proper oil in a Duramax.

Even with a gas engine though I probably wouldn't use it. Changing oil on a AWD pickup is not that tough and they probably offer free oil changes in an attempt to sell you other services.

Edit: Forgot to mention that back in the late 90s I got a door ding taking a car to the dealer.

Bingo I never used mine. They called a bunch of times so they must get a credit from GM or try to upsell.

They have a ZR2 set - https://rokblokz.com/products/chevy-...2017-mud-flaps

If your Bison has wider flares it may not work.

Yes this is the reason I hate taking my vehicles to any type of service place. They jam and park the vehicles anywhere. The clowns they have on staff that they refer to as "Porters" are usually and I say usually some misfit who cant or is too lazy to get a better job, they get paid crap (rightfully so) and could give a damn about some dudes $50,000 truck.

If I do have to go I try to wash it first so I can do a good walk around. My Subaru dealer does their own walk around, but I don't know if they pick up small dings.
