  1. The little town I live in will write you a ticket for just about anything. The the only way I can not speed through town is to set the cruise. If I put my foot on the pedal I will definitely be going faster than 30. Maybe this one will get me a little more street cred. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That's a sore subject. It's a 2014. At 103,000 a lifter on number 7 rotated in its bore and ate a chunk out of the cam. Of course it was 3k miles out of warranty. Luckily I have a good dealer and they got GM to eat half the cost but I was still out $3,800 bucks. I am going to run it until the motor warranty that came with the new long block runs out (203,000) and this truck is history. That should be sometime around January. I think I am going to a 3/4 ton diesel next. Other than that issue it's been a good truck. It spends quite a bit of time idling and at interstate speed with no real issues other than a total motor meltdown. I can say definitively that all the catch can stuff is just hoopla. At 103,000 miles the valves looked pristine and the head looked almost show room new. I got to see all of them first hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I found my mile per gallon that I lost. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. What wheels are those? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I put almost 65,000 miles on mine last year. That's a few bucks I left on the table to look cool! With the 275/65/20's and no air dam I am averaging about 15.5 mpg. I decided to keep this truck and run it into the ground rather than trading it for a new model so I am going to try to up the mpg a little for the next 150k miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I wanted my 1 mpg back! I missed it. I drive a lot and it really will help my long term fuel cost. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Man there is a bunch of Mississippi up in this thread! CSMDavis are you just on every single forum on the interwebs? This is Garland btw Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I did it and lost exactly 1 mpg in all around driving. I just put it back on after almost two years without it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. That's really not a bad idea. I am just about to add a compressor and tank in the back as well for general use. That would make the most sense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have had both and I will now take the Billsteins 10 times out of 10. MRT hooked me up to. Great guys to deal with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a 2014 Sierra z71 package. It had a two inch block at the rear now. I want to add a 3 inch block in order to leave things out. I carry I bunch of work stuff and I have a camper shell on the back so have a bit of a negative rake. If I add the 3 inch block (net +1 inch lift) will I need to get a different length shock or will the Bilstein 5100's I have work ok? Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have had both on this truck (2014 GMC). I had a roll n lock as well as a retrax. I had a kid and needed a little more room so I tossed on an ARE top. I can say very confidently that I would never go back to a bed cover. I will snap some pics when I get home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You will definitely need some air bags out back yo help with the young weight. I would put the biggest transmission cooler you can find on it as well. I would find a good gear calculator online and play around with the gearing and the tire size. Personal opinion, I would never pull a trailer that big with a half ton especially a lifted one. You are going to be fighting a lot of physics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I wore a hole in my factory style mat in the first year. They suck. I have the weather tech mats now and I wish I had got the husky's. The weather techs are way to ridged and once they get a crease it's bent forever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Subbed. I am in the same boat. Looking for a little more clearance but nothing wacky. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
