  1. I have the S&B intake on mine, works very well, pretty easy to install too.
  2. Since no one wants chrome (don't blame anyone, I don't want chrome either) I painted the factory steps I had in bedliner and put them back on. We'll see how they hold up.
  3. Painted the factory chrome tube steps with bedliner material.
  4. Got the factory tube steps covered in bedliner and reinstalled them on my '14 after a good wash.
  5. Anyone have a set of the black tube steps (round or square) they would like to trade? I have the round chrome ones and want steps, but not shiny ones.
  6. I live in Salt Lake and go to Moab a couple times a year to do group runs on some of the crazier trails in my 99 Yukon, but I'm always down for easier trails anytime.

  8. Kid is ok, just really bummed out about it. His plastic Corolla looks far worse. My bumper didn't even move, just the wrinkle in the bed and a broken taillight housing.
  9. Gotta love a good bumper though, tore his Corolla up and my bumper didn't budge.
  10. I did this to my truck today: Well, my landlord's grandkid did this to my truck today...
  11. I installed an oil type filter in my truck, yet I've no such issues. Nor have I ever had issues with the oiled K&N filter replacement on my 99 Yukon. I'd find a different dealer.
  12. I put the S&B intake on my '14, and other than some noise, I didn't notice any real difference. But car manufacturers generally tune their motors fairly laid back, at least on my truck, my exhaust pipe is black from all the soot because of running rich with a timing curve that's pretty laid back, and torque management. Torque management really kills the responsiveness of the motor. As an example, my 99 Yukon feels more lively and powerful even though it has a 100 hp and 200,000 mile deficit compare to my '14, because of torque management. A tune can turn that off, which really makes the truck feel more peppy, and readjusting the ignition and fuel injection curves can make a real difference in both power and fuel economy. Get a quality tune though, cheap programmers are just that, cheap.
  13. Mine is the original as far as I know. It did have some trouble when I first bought it, but I figured that was because it sat at the dealer for over a month with only very short trips. But it's ok now.
  14. Thanks for the input, much appreciated!
  15. I'm not sure if this is the right place, but my 2014 came with the round chrome tube steps, and I couldn't stand them, made the truck look lowered. Since I took them off, I've put a leveling kit and rear lift block, and even at 6' 4" the step up is more than I want to deal with, and the missus wants me to put them back on, but I refuse to put them on as is. I've scoured the classifieds locally and no one is taking off their rectangular steps (in black trim) so I'm considering painting mine. I know paint won't really stick to chrome that well, especially in the environment the steps will be in, but how will bedliner? I have the sport bar in the bed and thought it'd be cool to bedliner the steps then paint match them to the grey on the bar and other bits of plastic trim. Anyone done this that can give me tips and or pics of the end result? Thanks. Sent from my VK815 using Tapatalk
