Chevy is adding larger commercial trucks to its mix. The new class 6 truck expands Chevy's range of Low Cab Forward trucks. The new 6500XD picks up where the Class 4 and 5 Chevy trucks leave off. Notably, the Class 6 has a dock-height loading deck. These new trucks have bodies up to 30 feet long and can accommodate up to 29,950 pounds of cargo.

 

The standard engine is a 5.2-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel, capable of generating 520 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled to an Allison 2500 Series 6-speed automatic transmission (with PTO) and Dana axles are standard. Chevy;s commercial truck business has seen seven straight months of growth.

      I drive a 2014 Chevy Silverado with factory 22s and 285/45/r22 tires. I plan on putting a leveling kit on it and getting some bigger tires to beef it up a little bit. Thinking about a 3” leveling kit in the front with 1” blocks in the rear. (Just running a 2” leveling kit in the front would be an option but I’ve heard you can only get 33s under there)
       
      A few questions: does anyone have any experience with a setup like this? What’s the biggest size tires I could get? (I’m assuming I could get 34s without rubbing). And also, what are everyone’s recommendations on tread width? I’m wondering if I should stick with a 285/55/r22 or upgrade to something a little wider?
       
      I appreciate any help!

      Guys, I'm new here and I'm sorry if there's already a similar thread about this issue. I chose to eliminate my new truck fever by sprucing up my truck that has been paid off for 5 years now. My truck is 2WD and leveled. I went from the stock 17" wheels with 275/70/17 tires to the XD Buck 25 20" x 10" rims with a -25 offset. The new tire size is 275/55/20. I got it back from the tire shop and it was rubbing everywhere and shaking while I was breaking. The shaking came from the clips or "keepers" on the rear wheel studs that keeps the drum in place in the factory (got that part resolved after it was found on this forum! So, thanks guys!). After much trimming, the tire shop says I need a 3" suspension lift to have more room and eliminate all rubbing. Am I missing something? It's been four days in a row that I've been to the tire shop and it seems that nothing is getting resolved other than the shaking due to the clips. Is there a certain style trim that I can perform? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

      Ordered some ModifyStreet tow mirrors a few weeks ago and had some time this last weekend to install.  Overall I will say I am very happy with the mirrors so far. I've had them on for about a week.  Still getting used to the mirrors but couldn't be happier.
       
      I previously has DL8 mirrors on my truck.  I did not install the RZY harness, I tapped into a circuit in the door for my clearance lights.  The turn signal and reverse LEDs on both mirrors do not currently function. That's a lot of work and frankly, its just too cold outside for me to want dive into that.
       
      Compared to stock mirrors these tow mirrors stick out an extra 2" on each side so not a real deal breaker there. 
       
      Here's a link to the mirrors on Amazon, shipping was incredibly fast: https://www.amazon.com/ModifyStreet-Clearance-Silverado-Avalanche-Suburban/dp/B01N3XP0J5
       
      Enjoy!

      Ok I just bought an 02 Yukon 4x4. It has push button 4x4, 4 low, 4 high, 2 high and auto 4x4. I pressed the 4 hi to try the 4x4 and the light just flashed then went back to 2 hi. I hit 4 lo and heard it engage then the lights went out on the switch. Now the switch does nothing and the front diff is engaged. The transfercase is in high but I think 2 hi not 4 hi. I took out the 4wd fuse in the cab and also the atc fuse under the hood. Disconnected the battery for almost an hour today. Hooked it back up and the front is still engaged. My switches still do nothing.
