  1. 2016 GMC Sierra 1500

    I upgraded from the factory 17's to 20's (275/55/20) tires and the speedometer is dead-on. I did update my VIN through GM software to account for the 20's so I wouldn't get any flack at the dealer for warranty. Keep in mind you can only update for factory tires sizes. Any larger tires aren't available with factory software. You'd need a custom calibration loaded from a tuner, or use a handheld tuner.
  2. Well, my truck went in for the first round with 1500 miles on it, vibration since new. Vibration from 70-80 (worse at 75) and a "washboard" vibration slowing from 30 to stop. They road force balanced and said both concerns were fixed...yeah...okaaay. Round 2!
  3. Laura Buick GMC - Paid $19,900 including GM's end-of-year rebate stuff, $1500 hail discount (minor dings) and whatever else discounts they applied. Plus $175 doc fee. MSRP was $32,995. It was probably the busiest day of the year, there was literally a line out the door and so the buying process wasn't perfect but not terrible either. Would prefer to buy there on a slower day. Anyway I haven't seen another truck like this in the same price range, not even close. 2017 Sierra base w/ 5.3L, convenience group (power stuff) and trailering package. My FIL got the same truck but with 4wd and a radio upgrade for $23,995. I wasn't even looking for a truck, he just had his tee'd up and when I saw the price I figured I'd pick one up too.
  4. Actually for those tires I pay $295/ea, so the savings is not huge. I am not a large volume tire dealer, we are a repair shop that does tires so I am on a low tier. A large tire retailer like Discount Tire probably pays closer to $250/ea. If you were my wife I'd let you have 'em at cost...everybody else gotta put money in the kid's college fund LOL! It is very nice to get tires at cost. But I'm in my own shop all day dreaming of maintenance for my own cars, so I end up doing double or triple the average person at half the cost...like when the wife buys a bunch of stuff because it was 1/2 off and claims she "saved" money.
  5. American Tonneau Soft Rolling Cover from Autoanything.com. Price was incredible, plus they sent 1) long cargo hook, 2) life hammer (breaks windows and cuts seatbelts), 3) tailgate seal and 4) tonneau conditioner. I honestly felt guilty after what I paid with a discount and free shipping. Made in America, easy installation, high quality. This one definitely seals better than an over-the-rails cover I bought last year. Looking forward to adding some plugs for the stage pockets and a bedrug.
  6. fuzzybritches, looks great! Cooper ST Maxx are the bomb. I've had three sets. Went wheeling in the black hills of SD this summer on a set, they were excellent.

    Window tint, check.
  8. This is great to know, thanks for posting! I am getting ready to do a level kit with upper control arms on the same wheels and similar sized tires, but not wanting 1.75" spacers...so looks like your solution will be perfect for me to clear the upper control arms on factory tires.

    Came across a deal on 2018 dealer take-off 20's with tires, lug nuts, TPMS and less than 1,000 miles for a total of $800 including credit for my set. I will upgrade tires later but this was absolutely perfect for right now.
  10. Exactly. Might be worth noting that 2017+ does not require the harness and latch as they are already installed. This makes install simpler, but for those getting the idea that you can just purchase fobs, it won't work as the code/updated BCM program is really what you are buying and it comes on a sheet in the parts kit, no other way to get it. I added remote start on my 2017 Sierra W/T with AQQ, works great.

    Nice! Let me know how that catback works out. Is yours leveled already?

    Love the red trucks! We're a red GM family, just landed on black this time. Here is my FIL's '03 regular cab, bought new and is now a garage queen. And an '08 I bought new and '02 I bought almost new.

    Added factory remote start today, using GM software (I have a repair shop). FYI, on the 2017/18's there is no wiring harness required although it comes with the kit and is required for installation in 2014-2016. It's just two key fobs and a code for AC Delco to update the BCM calibration. Then you just have to program the fobs.
