  1. I'm looking for a 2014-15 1500 Z71 grill. It's this what you have? If you still have it. I have a LTZ chrome grill that I don't like with the silver ice color of my truck. Thank you. Mark Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. It's just another way of"dumbing down" America. People want everything done for them so they don't have to even think let alone physically do anything. Some warnings are a plus for safety but many are just plan idiotic. For instance i can appreciate the Auto headlights but it's not needed, for me anyway. Not only do I have the ability to realize visibility is disappearing I actually watch my gauges and when I can't see them as well I turn on my lights. Most Ford drivers are baffled by a light switch so I'm sure that's why I see so many Fords after dark with no lights. The park assist is another thing that pisses my off.. Really? Come on people it's just parking. Anyway I digress.. It can't be disabled that I know of. It's there for people who used to drive Fords and don't know that water turns to ice at 32°f. Oh and here's a funny one.. My factory radio sometimes gives me a warning that taking my eyes off the road can be dangerous..duh! I wouldn't have if this notification didn't pop up randomly.

  3. I know we all have different experiences but I would rate the Falkens WAY better then the Duratracs. Night and day better. I bought the Duratracs and took them back ASAP. Very dangerous highway manners compared to the Falkens. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. Looks nice I think. It needs to lose the ugly mud flaps or use the factory GM ones. Also the wheels look a little off. But overall I like the two-tone and especially the black and silver. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    After having the same size bed as yours my 2015 "standard" some seems huge. I used the tool box and I could haul 16' lumber by leaving the tailgate closed and wedging the lumber under it. I also bought a bed extender from harbor freight. Being in construction I know better then to buy my 2011 crew cab but having a couple kids and the allure of the 6.2l pushed me that way. It was totally worth it too. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. The L86 is a step up in horsepower and refinement but the 8 speed blows for anything except towing and putting the gas pedal to the floor. Overall the truck itself is better then the last platform but it's plagued with issues. My 2011 had 110, 000 on it and was a great truck minus the major tapping noise when the motor was cold. I'd probably keep the 2011 if it's in good shape and wait to see what the new ones are like. Problem is what kind of issues will they have that show up a year or two after purchase.

  7. Anyone else have a issue with there 8 speed not downshifting far enough? I have to be TOTALLY STOPPED to get it back in first. I know the ratios are close in this trans but it should still go into first without being stopped. Even does it with tow haul mode on and when I'm towing it's downright dangerous. I've pulled out on to busy roads say after rolling up from a driveway etc. and hit the gas to get going briskly and it just bogs down. I hate to push too far on the gas in case it does finally downshift. I don't remember the truck doing this before late summer this year. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. I just started a post on this and even looked to see if someone else has best me to it. I searched and didn't find anything yet it looks like there's already one existing. Guess that's what I get for using Tapatalk. I like the truck for sure! Not sure I'd buy it like that but it's sharp! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Just saw a article about this (please excuse the screen shots) and I thought it's a sharp looking truck! I've always thought with my white 2011 I could see styling cues from my dad's old '72 K1500. I know it's mostly the paint but at a glance it definitely looks like the K2 has kept with it's heritage. I really like the wagon wheels on it. I've been looking for wheels ever since I bought the truck early this year.. Wonder how white wagon wheels would look.. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Looks nice! I've got the same truck for the most part and I'm having a hard time deciding on a wheel/ tire combo. This silver ice color needs some wheels with chrome/ machined areas along with some black. I think yours is a good balance of both. I've narrowed it down to 17x9 or 18x9 with around a - 12 offset.

  11. I've always been under the impression that 17" is the smallest you can go. Many members on here have 17's. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Wouldn't your average speed be around 160mph??? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. How is the e85 tune for power and economy? I have many gas stations around here that sell the e85. I'm considering doing the conversation to my 2015 6.2L. Still reading up on how to do it. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. I ran the 2" Zone kit on my 2011 and put over 100,000 Miller on it with no issues. No ball joint problems and even had the original shocks and brakes. I'm getting around to lowering my Bilsteins to half a inch lift and adding a 2" zone leveling kit to it. I'll have 2.5" lift in front and with my 3" blocks it should be high enough... For now.

  15. That is bad-ass!! Looks awesome! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
