I am new here and I have been enjoying my truck for about 7 months now.
Just figured to take some photos of the truck since the first round of my mods is done.
- 18 inch Volk Racing TE37 Large PCD Wheels
- Retrax Tonneau Cover
- AMP Research Powerstep
I hope you guys enjoy the photos

There has been an issue with the suspension on our new 2017 Silverado 4x4 ever since we purchased it, but we were hoping after we put some miles on it would settle down, it didn't. I’m referring to its tendency to almost throw you out of your seat when going over large bumps on the highway at freeway speeds of 65-70mph, like entering or leaving the transition onto and off of freeway overpasses, where the pavement raises up slightly at one end or the other of the over pass. Depending on the severity of the rise in pavement, it almost causes the truck to loose control. We wanted the smoothest ride possible and specifically did not choose the Silverado Z71 4x4 because the suspicion was reported to be stiffer for off road applications, now I hear the suspension on the Silverado Z71 4x4 and on the Silverado LTZ (non-Z71) 4x4 are identical, apparently the only difference in the two trucks is some difference in trim.
Most of the time the ride in our Silverado is very nice, except going over bumps. Also the rear of the vehicle is higher than the front ( and higher than my 2000 GMC Sierra Z71 which rode very smoothly). The taller tailgate on our 2017 Silverado makes it harder loading heavy items into the bed.
Is there anything that can be done to lower the rear of the vehicle level with the front ( I do not want to lift the truck), and allow a smoother ride? Can the suspension or shocks be changed out for something that will absorb the bumps better and still give a comfortable ride?

I want to install a supercharger on my truck. I have a CAI, Flowmaster and a set of long tube Kooks with their cats ordered. I would like to hear from someone that has a whipple, procharger or other supercharger installed on a similar truck. I would like to know pros and cons and basically how well you like what you have.
I have an 04 Silverado 1500 crew cab z71. It's all stock. I currently have stock 17" rims with 265/70/17 tires. I'm looking to fit 285/70/17 tires on and will be tightening the torsion bar to create enough clearance. I'm also looking to get aftermarket rims that'll make them stick out a bit. What rims or sizes would you suggest?
