  1. It’s an Autofeel triple row 16” led light 216W , 21600LM It’s sold by Autofeel. It doesn’t seem to be available now but I’ve seen it come and go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ford Finally did it...

    I followed my dad after he’s had nothing but Sierras all my life and I drive GM too. But the new Super Duty is bad to the bone. I would trade my Denali for a King Ranch or Platinum with no question. 100k is pushing it for that monster but I see why they ask 65-70k for the F250. Ford does a lot right,just like GM, and they should get the respect they deserve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I had a SuspensionMaxx 2.5” level on my 2017 Sierra 1500 Denali. It came with a bracket for the level sensor. It was really nice. It felt almost like factory , except at highway speeds above 75mph, where I could feel a bit more roughness on the highway. I ran the stock tires on the level. I don’t think you could go too much taller or wider. Some people run 33s or bigger on leveling kits but I don’t like not being able to turn... I took the level off after a couple of months and installed a 4” Fabtech Uniball kit and I’m running a 285/55/22, which is a roughly a 35”x11.50” and I only rub when flexing on inclines and turning. I’m also running a 1.25” spacer. This is on factory 22s Denali Ultimate wheels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 2018 Colorado backup display too bright

    It’s an update done as part of a technical service bulletin or TSB. The number is 17-NA-269. Any GM dealer should be able to do it with the scan tool. *please note this update is model specific, meaning it is not for all GM vehicles. In other words, please don’t demand your local dealer to perform this because it may not fix the problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 2018 Colorado backup display too bright

    I had this exact problem with my 2017 Sierra. GM finally releases an update on August 22nd and I had it fixed. Its a safety issue for sure. My cab was so bright I couldn’t see out my side mirrors at night Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just ordered it on amazon. The brand was autofeel or something like that. I wasn’t anything special but it was thin so I got it. I’m looking at getting a ADD or FabFours bumper and then I’ll get a Rigid Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you! I did not remove them. The clearance is about 2.5”. There are light bars that are that thin. I unfortunately do not have any install pics. I guess I was too excited to put it together to stop haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Here’s my ‘17 with active shutters. Tri-row LED light bar Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Here's my Sierra with a 4" Fabtech lift on 34.5" on factory Denali 22s. I'm running a small spacer because I wanted a slightly wider looking set up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes, the lift required for a small notch to be cut out from the rear cross member. That is done so that the differential can drop down a couple of inches without making contract with the crossmember. It could technically be welded back on if necessary. With bigger lifts, the crossmember piece is cut out completely and a different one is bolted on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I added the spacer for the look mostly. It's the same front and rear and it looks pretty solid. I ran a SuspensionMaxx 2.5" level. I loved it and the bracket for the relocation of the level sensor was good. It was actually accidentally transferred to the Fabtech control arms and it ended up making my whole lift ride better because it put the sensor at a better angle. Here's the truck with the level. The ride was pretty much same as stock. The only time I could feel a difference was at 75+mph and I think the aerodynamic change was the biggest difference. I would highly recommend a true lift for such a size tire. Yes, it could technically fit on just a level, but it really doesn't make a lot of sense to limit the movement of the suspension that way. But I built this truck to be able to drive through a ditch if I feel like it... haha you know what I mean though. Here's the truck with the Fabtech 4". I'd highly recommend this set up. I'll take pics of the upper ball joint if you want. It's solid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Sure, let me know what else you'd like to know. I'm running the uniball kit with the heavy duty ball joints I'm running a Terra Grappler G2 in a 285/55/22, which measures out to 34.4", only .2" smaller than a true 35". It's roughly .5" thinner. I chose to run a 1" spacer and I am really happy with the look. You will read people go back and forth with their opinion of/on spacers. I did my research and I am happy with my decision. I may at some point get wheels but I wanted to keep the OEM look, just a little more aggressive. My Denali is a 2017 1500, crew cab, short bed, 4WD. I'm running the factory 22" that comes with the Denali ultimate package. I have a 1-1.5" section of my fender liner where I rub on the driver side when I turn left in reverse. I haven't trimmed anything else or removed the lower bumper valance. I was really surprised when the other member was running this tire on a level kit. That's a massive tire on just a level. It has to rub ..The kit I have is designed for 33s, and it seems like it barely fits the tires I run... I had a 2.5 level before this and there's no way they would have fit. I'd highly recommend the Fabtech kit. It integrated nicely with Magnaride and I truly think the majority of the additional roughness is from the 10ply tires. I'd say it rides like a 2500 HD. Hope this helps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Dang! I'm running that same tire (34.4" tall) on a 4" Fabtech. Where does yours rub? Driver or pass side ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is my set up. 285/55/22 Terra Grappler G2s on factory 22" wheels on a Fabtech 4" lift. They measure at 34.4, which is roughly .2" smaller than a 35". I can't tell a difference in height when I park next to a 35". It it, however, not as wide. But they don't rub very much at all and they are very quiet and they balanced out very well. As was mentioned above, I also think the G2s aren't much good in mud. They slick up fast and loose traction. I have about 1200 miles on them and wet traction is okay, or so I believe. I traded a 2015 Audi S4 for this truck so I'm used to something different when it comes to wet traction. Hope this helps anyone that wants to run factory wheels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I was under the impression the original post was by a Denali owner. My apologies Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
