country_09 replied to King-Kon's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500If it were me, I'd do the 6" with a 1.5" zone body lift. I have the body lift on my 01 and love it.
country_09 replied to King-Kon's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500It depends on how high you want it. Rough country has a 2", 4.5", and 6" kits for your truck. 2" is a levelin kit, 4.5" is a 3" spindle lift and 1.5" levelin kit, and the 6" is a full bracket 6" lift.
country_09 replied to Kiyoshi's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I'd give Texas-speed a call and explain to them what you're lookin for. Prolly best option
6.2/6 speed on 33s gets 16-18 hwy depending on how fast i go...loaded down this weekend with 18' pipe trailer and 2 four wheelers and a lifted side x side with coolers and gear in the bed of the truck got 11 consistently doin 70mph in hill country. Has LT's, afe intake, dyno tune

I did delete the flapper and the rear resonator and dumped it over the axle with a 5" tip. I love the way it sounds. Great muffler choice for the 6.2
Seein that video above, the 6.2 wasn't that far behind. Considerin the elevation, id thought that it'd have been a bigger gap between the two. When I went to Colorado the performance seemed to drop big time, also makin me think down here it's a totally different race. Down here they'd be close stock for stock. One edge the other by a nose or so....mine has headers/intake/tune but is also on 33s. Puts out right at 400hp to the wheels or there abouts I'm guessin. It was 386hp/419tq with its current setup minus Intake then I added the afe momentum gt which supposedly does 20hp or so. All guesstimates but somewhere around in there number wise.
I saw that video which is what made me think the new raptor would take my 6.2...bein in Houston area I guess that's not the case. Good to know
I figured the raptor would take you no prob...I knows there's a weight difference with you in a rcsb but still impressive especially with you on 33s

country_09 replied to demar002's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Maybe I'm simple...but my 14 ltz has to many options. I just wanted the 6.2 so I went with it. I don't think I've used half the options it has. But I will say I love the 6.2 and it rides great even with 33s. Interior is leaps and bounds over my old nnbs and my dads nnbs. No squeaks/rattles. Also helps I think I've been one of the lucky ones. I haven't had any shakes or vibration issues with mine. My wife had an Altima 3.5sr with the push start and the door handles you could push a button and get inside. At times it was nice, you didn't have to dig in your pockets with your hands full, but wasn't somethin I absolutely had to have. I didn't get one with a sunroof as I've heard to many stories of them leakin, wasn't really a priority of mine I guess. Plus my wife's Altima had one and then the Tahoe we got her recently has one so I get my fix. I don't need blind spot monitoring...part of drivin is bein aware of what's around you, I don't need a knob to show me how to back a trailer up, I don't need a 360 degree camera as I don't have many tight spaces around me. I don't live in the city I guess you could say, live on the outskirts and hate goin to the city so I avoid it at all costs. But being a truck guy, i do like the styling of the f150s and the eco is very impressive, I'd hate to get rid of a tried and true v8 that I'm really familiar with for a turbo'd v6 I don't know much about and have read plenty of issues about. All in all, I'm one of the lucky ones who hasn't had issues out of his k2 I guess, which makes it easy to say I love my truck through and through. Congrats on the purchase, I hope it treats you better than the k2 you had did, if so then of course it was a good move. They all build quality trucks but I know there's a few that get out that aren't up to par. All bout what ya want at the time!

country_09 replied to isiddall's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI've seen where someone made the old one work on their 16. I actually commented on another post on this site regarding the same question and had a screenshot of the poster who got it to work
country_09 replied to Meethead's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsIt does work, but won't necessarily help make the whole truck taller I guess. just the body. so the trans/transfer case/oil pan will all still be in the same spot. Guaranteed that if you took the 4" off, someone local would buy it. Hell I have a buddy looking for a 4" lift right now and I'm on the east side of Houston. I'd go taller suspension. The mcg 7-9" or the superlift 8" would be my choices. and over here we've been driving through foot and half deep water for 2 days. a little more height for clearance is no big deal. Doesn't take a genius to know where the limits are....although now a days it's hard to tell.
country_09 replied to gilleydog's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I'd imagine a lot of dealers around here(east Houston) will have "specials" on trucks with "none to minimal water damage". Needless to say I wouldn't be in the market for a truck around here right now.
