2015 Silverado Fasteners

Are these rigs predominantly assembled with metric fasteners? The only wrenching I've done on mine is adding the assist steps, which were metric.

Seems like my 2005 was mostly metric, but I always carried a combo SAE and metric set of tools, since some of my trailers and equipment use SAE fasteners.

I am going to assemble a custom set of tools for this rig to save some space under the rear seat in the OEM storage bin, where there is not much room. I think I will emphasize the metric with more variety and sizes and just include a basic set of SAE tools.

Thanks.

I have not seen a single fastener on my truck that wasn't metric. Most of the GM vehicles that I have worked on over the last 10 years have been all metric. Although if you have aftermarket accessories, like a B&W turnoverball they sometimes use SAE fasteners.

They are all metric, however most have SAE equivalent sizes. The one that doesn't is 10mm.

That's pretty much what I thought. I really never had to do anything to my 2005 other than filters and belts and oil changes, so I didn't really do much wrenching on it.

The lift I installed on this truck has more fasteners, I will have to make sure what spec fasteners they use. Other than that, I won't have too many more accessories to worry about.

The tool set I have right now would be fine, but the molded case won't fit in the storage bin, so I gotta do something else and it is probably going to have to be a tool bag to fit better. The one I have was fine under my 2005 rear seat where it sat in the middle 142K miles. I'll put the old one in my camper or in the tool box on my utility trailer.

Sears has a couple of pretty nice socket sets on sale for Father's day. I think I will pick one up and add some box end wrenches they have on sale and call it a day.

I seen an oilfield roustabout with a "crammer" once. It is basically a large crescent wrench with a 2 - 2.5 lb sledge hammer head welded on the handle in case you need to add a little persuasion to the equation..............awesomeness!

I thought to myself I could really use one of those..........if for nothing else, to pull it out once in a while and have a good laugh with someone.

I finished getting my new gear together today and I am happy with the new additions to my previous gear.

I purchased an 85 piece set of Craftsman Max Access sockets ($76) that have a wide range of metric and SAE sockets in 1/4 and 3/9 drive without the need for deep wells. They fit well under the OEM seat storage in the molded plastic case, which is nice. I also added a set of GearWrench ratcheting box end wrenches ($50) in metric and SAE 20 wrenches), which are very smooth.

Sears.com

Sears.com

The balance of my gear includes a range of other useful stuff all packed nicely into the OEM storage area and under the rear seat below the seatback.

A medium tool bag loaded with the box end wrenches, a few crescent wrenches, pliers, channel lock, vise grip, wire cutters, needle nose, and a ball peen hammer, and a screwdriver with multiple torx/allen head/Phillips/standard drivers.

Two small backpacks loaded with various gear such as electrical tape, wire, duct tape, tie wraps, fuses, tie downs, bungee straps, paracord, knife, rain poncho, first aid kit, flashlights, LED trouble light, extension cords, small air compressor, jumper cables, and a tow rope.

I also have a tow hook and a clevis that will insert into my receiver hitch and a 6 ton bottle jack under the seatback. As well as a belt replacement tool and extra belt and fuel filter.

It is a much tighter fit than my 2005, but I made it fit and it is well organized. I don't think GM did all they could do to add as much storage inside the vehicle. I think they should so like Ram does and put some subfloor storage pockets in and it would be very convenient.

I am also a little concerned that the rear seat does not lock in place. If you hit some major terrain or manage to turn this thing over, you will no doubt be getting a set of wrenches or various other heavy objects bouncing off your melon....................maybe I will have bigger things to worry about if I'm upside down.

I like ratchet wrenches but I don't trust them for tight or high torque nuts and bolts. For that, I use a 6 point socket of wrench. Of course that shouldn't be an issue on a new truck!
