  1. Thanks for deleting all of the answers to the questions asked without notice GM Trucks Mods. What a waste of time, and Im sure the members love not getting the information they request.
  2. Steel cased .223 in a 5.56 marked rifle

    Keep the rifle lubed with oil, almost wet and youll be better off. I have a case head rip off in my DPMS AR10 running Tulammo. Shooting .223 in a 5.56 is not a problem, shooting a 5.56 in a .223 barrel could be a problem. My 5.56 barrels can eat the steel case ammo, my .223 Wylde barrels do not like it at all.
  3. You are Peter, our local Vegas customer? No problem to return those if you want to wait on the bilsteins, but we have no idea when they will actually come out, realistically its 30-90 days.
  4. No UCA required. Price point is the same as the other 6112 models on the market with MSRP of $799 for the front pair (We sell our Toyota units right under $600 for the pair) 6112 is a 2.65" Diameter shock vs the Fox 2.0" diameter. Less features & preset ride heights compared to the FOX, but they have internals and piston size of much more expensive $1000+ coilover sets. I ran the development set on the 2015 Baja 1000 course, and the 2016 & 2017 Mint 400 courses with better than expected performance.
  5. Spoke with Bilstein at the show. Internal changes have held up the release of many new products. Per the Offroad Department @ the SEMA Show, the 6112s should be ready to ship by mid-Dec, they have completed production of the first batch. We are awaiting the part number then we will begin filling the pre-orders. Fingers crossed!
  6. U-Turns will be hard. But if its just for a day I think you will survive.
  7. They always have one reason or another, but hopefully that is the truth. They have been due since last year. I will believe them when they arrive to our loading dock!!!
  8. We have the first few production runs on order and the date has continually been pushed back. We will be meeting with Bilstein in person next week at the SEMA show. Per Bilstein "Hey Dude. We are still waiting on the GM 6112's. I am hoping we will have some by October. Sorry it's taking so long. We've been kicking and screaming [to corporate] for these which hasn't seemed to help."

  10. Nice looking truck! So you have a few options. No need to change the lift kit, thats not what is causing the poor ride. First, you touched on it with the larger wheels and stiff offroad tires with small sidewalls. I see no need to change these out. Next, the shocks most likely are the stock ones up front under the RC spacer, with longer RC shocks out back. The stock shocks are pretty weak to begin with, so adding larger and heavier tries does not help them at all. You can replace the shock with any stock replacement such as the 5100 or ProComp shocks, and that may help a pretty decent amount. The other option is to install a full length coilover that will replace the lift kit spacer. These coilovers have a 2.5" shock diameter which is much larger than stock with more dampening capability. They also are adjustable in height/preload, so you can soften them up by backing down the lift amount. These shocks are much better and handling road imperfections and bumps, while also controlling the weigh of your wheel and tire setup. FOX, ICON and King all make a lift kit coilover shock Bilsteins - $220 a pair. (If you can wait it out a month or so, bilstein is releasing a larger 6112 version which would be better suited to your needs)
  11. Hey if its in stock (FOX is one of the worst backorder offenders, along with ICON) we try to get it shipped out the day you purchase it. Im so happy you are liking the setup!
  12. Thank you so much for yours posts guys! I am grateful to have you all as customers and so pleased to see the results that you are all posting!
  13. Please let us know if we can answer any questions!
  14. Nice looking trucks everyone! Remember, most bracket lift kits reuse the stock front shocks and include some crappy rear twin tubes. Even the upgraded shocks are not worth it in some cases. Fox & King both offer full length replacement coilovers that will replace the front lift spacer/shock combo with a full length, 2.5" diameter coilover. This will greatly improve the ride quality, looks, and offroad performance.
  15. The 285/75R17 is a 33.8" tire, the 285/70R17 is a 32.7" tire. Width is the same. The 295/70R17 is 33.25" tall so that shouldnt be an issue, but its also about .4" wider than the 285s are so you may rub the control arm if you are running stock wheels.
  16. Typical Bilstein. Ive done about 20 of these releases for them now over the past ten years. Always the same story... but Id rather have them release a product that is 100% ready for market then rush to get something out and deal with problems down the line (cough first gen fox 2.0s cough)
  17. 5100s will work great as well. The 5160 is very similar in ride quality, but is slightly longer to accommodate larger rear block lifts as well as having the reservoir for added oil capacity. As soon as we have the part number from Bilstein for the 6112s, we will be contacting all of those on our preorder list as well as posting up pre-sale info for all.
  18. Alexantics is correct, the issues you have read about are mostly related to the first generation of FOX 2.0 shocks that have been discontinued. FOX has correct the issues on both the 2.0 and 2.5 shocks and they are riding great now. @Alexantics - do you have a build thread? Id love to see your ride with all the gear installed.
