Just wondering if anyone has this ? I have read up on it and it seems like a nice bolt on kit that id designed well and has the proper parts like a diff drop , new skid plate , upper CA'S , shock extenders , ect.... They are a site sponsor , so wondering if anyone has one. Pro's / con's
I have a 2012 Z71 Tahoe with a CCM lift 2.5" F and 1" rear is how its set up now. It has 265.65.18 tires and stock rims (18x8) I think. I went to a tire shop today and they told me if I put bigger tires on (E rated) 285.65.18 I won't be able to get rid of the TPMS warning light. If I decide to switch to 17" rims which is an option I am looking at and going with 285.70.17 the said I will still have the same issues with TPMS. Is that the truth ? how do you all work around the bigger tire option sand LT rated tires. Thanks Mike
Im going to Rinderle tire in Neeosho on hyw 60 west of hartford. Any other ideas ? where did you go ? Ive dealt with them many times and think they are a quality shop IMO. Always open to suggestions.
I'll have to update my sig. I have a 2.5" front and a 1" lift in the rear at the moment. I guess if I do go 4" i will do a pro comp . I probably leave it alone though. Just need to get the rim tire thing figured out.
if I want to replace my tires I will have to go "E" rated and then the tires will be way higher in pressure . min of 50-65 with a E rated tire . Thats pretty much all thats available in the 285/70/17 and 285/65/18 market. I also pull a heavy load at times and a P rated is not going to cut it I would not expect you guys to have any issues with what your running. Thats whats going to code the light to go on and stay on (as per the tire shop).
I have a new Z Tahoe which has the same frogs as the new Silverados and was wondering if anyone has upgraded to a 9005/9005 with a new harness connection . It has the square fog lamps (not round like the reg.Tahoes have ), they suck for light output. I had a GMC before and I know there were many who upgraded the harness to a 65 watt 9006 with pigtail harness and have had no issues with melting or over heating. I did this mod myself to my 2011 GMC without any issues at all , and it was a cheap wonderful mod. Txs
Fallz replied to Fallz's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I guess I will have to be the test pilot on this one ...lol. I'll keep ya posted.
Fallz replied to Easy Runnin's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500My 2011 GMC had 3.42's and now my Tahoe Z71 has 3.42's . I would stay with 3.42 or go to 3.73's IMO . especially if you are going to put bigger tires on.
Fallz posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I have searched and looked in the manual to find nothing. I would like #'s for low beams High beams DRL's & Fog lights I even had them run numbers for a 2011 at Autozone and they have nothing. I want to change the low and high's to a PIAA and want to put in amber DRL's . I also want to fabricate a way to put 65 watt bulbs in my fog lights.( Like I did on my Sierra ) Any help is appreciated . Mike
Fallz replied to Fallz's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Thank you guys so much. The manual does not have all of these specs . Don't know why but it doesn't .
We may be purchasing a Yukon with off road package , 3.42's , rear locker , 5.3L , 4x4 . Naturally I want a small lift . May be a 2"/1" or a 3"/2" Suggestions please . Probably have to do spacers. If you could point me to a company I would appreciate it . Plan on running 17x8 285/70/17's Thank you
I saw you on the HWY the other day (sunday) heading north . Your Tahoe looks good with that lift. I assume it was you anyway. Thanks for the advice/offer . I'll keep you posted . I'll look into the lift . No sure if we will go for the Yukon or a Tahoe yet . The Yukon has the off road package with the locking diff , upgrade suspension , 3.42's , 17" wheels , act...... It's not called a Z71 on the Yukon , just "off road package" . Damn things are expensive !!!
In case anyone wants a point of cost reference I was quoted $2000.00 today for the 4" BDS lift kit. This included the kit , install and alignment. I like the looks but hesitant to pull the plug. They also showed me where it has to be cut and welded and its no big deal. I want this kit , but also have to figure in rims and tires which is putting me over the edge as far as cost goes. It will be like dropping $3500-$4000 on my truck . yikes !!
Fallz replied to BlkSilverado2011's topic in Wheels, Tires, & TPMSLooks good and liking the mirrors. Did your stock mirrors have power fold in / out ?
Fallz replied to Drifthopper's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I always get the Z71. My GMC has the Z71 and all-terrain package . Why are you worried about $275 when spending the big $$ on the truck anyway. Just get it and don't look back.
I think his truck looks fine with the 17" black wheels with the bright lop in them . I like black wheels but think they are so over done , seems like everyone has them. BUT !! at least they do have nice looking style of them out there , just my .02 Im still trying to find rims myself and who knows what I will find . I don't mind a black and bright combo , but not solid black .
The guys were kind of pricks a bit when I started asking questions but then they lightened up. They told me BDS is the only way to go with the 900's . I only want 4" (max) . I have not been able to find out if there is any cutting or welding with this kit . Does anyone know off hand ?? Whats your thoughts on BDS ?? Thank you Mike
I wouldn't be doing anything to save cash , I am a do it right the first time guy. At 1st I did the DS kit but all together with kit and alignment my friend did it for like 275 so no big deal to take it off and start over. I don't mind spending the $$ for quality whether it be a BDS or a CST or Rancho 4".
