  1. So after countless searches, I was not able to really find anything useful about the ride quality and stance of the new GM 2” lift. I went ahead and pulled the trigger and put this kit on my High County. I’ll try to give y’all as much detail as I can regarding stance, handling, and overall ride quality but for starters, let’s just say I’m not a bit disappointed! As most of us know, Chevys have quite a bit of factory rake. This kit will NOT cure that as it raises the truck 2” all the way around. However, my specific truck did not have a ridiculous front end squat to begin with so no other mods were necessary to get the stance I was searching for. But if you want it leveled, then you’ll need to add a level kit the lift kit. Otherwise, your truck will sit exactly like a Trail Boss. Overall, the stance is slightly aggressive but not overdone as this is a High Country, which will most likely never see true off-roading. Chevy suspensions...IMO tend to be mushy and bouncy. Well this kit changed that for my truck. It now rides exactly like the Trail Boss which is what I was looking for. Instead of several bounces after going over swells and dips in the roadways, the new suspension unloads and stabilizes extremely quickly. This also bleeds over into the overall handling...which didn’t change at all. The truck still hugs the road tightly and even with the rear raised 2”, there’s no skipping of the rear when cornering. If you’ve ever had other lifts, you should know what I’m talking about. Next step is to add some All-Terrain tires and get rid of the junk street tires GM puts on their trucks, most likely 285/50/22. But for now, I hope this little bit of information can help someone make an educated decision. Let me know if you have any specific questions...glad to help!

  4. Looks good . Spinning the shim does clear the vib. I like the looks of dropping the rear to level than raising the front.

  5. Put the shackles on mine on the 2" setting. I also experienced some vibration and spun the shims around.

  10. The adaptive cruise control was the WORST feature in the car I rented in Germany, and could NOT turn the damn thing off! There's no speed limit so I would travel at 80 to 90 mph, trucks cannot go above 60 mph so I would have to watch the left lane for a gap so I could jump in and pass the truck. Sometimes, the cruise control would act up and slam the brakes whenever I got too close to the truck in front of me, but the car would not know I already intended to move to the left lane. And then with it going slower, I'd mess up the traffic rhythm on the left lane and watch all the angry glares while moving back to the right lane, still behind the truck. I do NOT want it and will NOT consider a car with that bullshit!

  11. Mechanics have electric lifts, electric impact wrenches, containers for used motor oil, filters readily available, oil purchased at wholesale price, etc. or you can do it yourself for a couple hours. My dealership has free lifetime oil change. Midas does it for $19 and throws in tire rotations for free. Or I could buy six quarts of oil for $5 each.. that's $30. I can't buy wholesale. How much is the filter? $10? So that totals $40. So that's spending more time and more money. Error, does not compute, error, error.

  12. Thank you! Lift was $1295 and my local dealership installed it, reprogrammed power steering and front cameras, and aligned it at no charge...hellava deal! Getting 285/50/22 Ridge Grapplers put on this afternoon so I’ll post updated pics.

  13. Mark, I've stayed back on this but felt compelled to respond. I received my treatment at Moffitt in Tampa. It's a ways from you but I stayed on Campus for free at the Hope Lodge. It was nine years this July that I received my last treatment. I've lived a lot longer than anyone would have guessed. Point is, you never know. Good luck.

  17. My 14 has 4 positions on the driver window and the other windows have 3 positions. If you barely pull the button up it will go up and stop as soon as you let your finger off of the button, if you pull it up higher it will go into the second position which is auto up. Same for putting the windows down, if you barely push it down it will stop when you release your finger and if you press further it will put them down automatically.

  18. Thank you for voicing your opinion I was very curious what you thought. If I was towing or hauling something that heavy I wouldn’t have bought a 1500 in the first place. Not to mention you can adjust your lights in about 10 seconds. Not sure why you felt the need to take a dig at me but hey, you just do you.

  21. Have you checked out Fia seat covers. They appear to have a Protector series with a rear seat split seat with center armrest that fits the new body 2019s. You could always email them to make sure the pic is accurate and they have the center armrest. https://gofia.com/product-category/seat-covers/custom_fit_truck/seat_protector_custom_fit_truck/ I have Fia Protector series in my 2013 and they fit nice and tight and seem to wear decently.

  23. I disagree. That may have been the attitude many years ago, but since the Crapotas and Hondas from the 80s and 90s that proved that vehicles could be engineered for long term use and reliability (from a power train perspective) the Big 3 have known that they have to do better and have indeed done better. Now. Crapota and Hondas are not perfect either. they have pattern failures, they have things they don't do well that the domestic products do do well, and so on. Competition is a good thing. So when someone claims they believe a manufacturer is purposely not building something to last, I generally think they are full of shit. But then again.. we are all full of shit sooner or later. But the shit must flow. So out goes the bad shit, and in comes the good shit... oh nevermind.

  26. I spent the money, a lot of money got the Ceramic Pro, took them 5 days they did a complete paint correction way beyond a clay bar. Then they did several coats of Ceramic Pro I have a 10 year guarantee, every year you take it in on your anniversary for a new top coat of Sport which is the shine coat. I am extremely happy with it money well spent. I got it in March, been through some hellish storms and about 7000 miles still looks perfect. All I do is wash it, live on a gravel road no garage.

  33. Hey guys, new to the forum. I'm getting my AT4 today and already ordered the motofab 1.5" level and going to get some 22" GMC replica wheels to put on. Will I be okay with a 35x12.50x22 tire? The offset on the wheels will be +24 which is pretty close to the factory I think.

  35. I say you’re overthinking it. Guarantee you 99.9% of the buying public isn’t dumping oil after 500 or 1000 miles, so to me it seems like a non-issue, or engines wouldn’t be living as long as they do anyway. Personally, I don’t pretend to know better than the manufacturer, I just follow the book. My first oil change on all my trucks has been at around 6 months or 6000. Granted I don’t keep them forever but not many people do, and nobody yet has shown proof that dumping the factory fill early will lead to a longer engine life. The debate will go on until the end of time. In regards to the AC Delco..it is full synthetic and every bit as good as Mobil 1. Plus it’s free...

  36. There is about 2 gallons left in my 24 gallon tank when it says "low" instead of giving a number. So at about 16-17 mpg for my 6.2. That's 32+ miles which is not much. Don't push it. The only thing I liked better in my 2017 F150 was the 36 gal fuel tank. Well, the seats were a little more comfortable as well, but I wouldn't trade back. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  37. Just picked up a RST All Star Edition Silverado on Sunday! Satin Steel Metallic with the matching painted bumpers. It's a definite upgrade from the commuter car (Jetta) I was driving. As it sits right now, I plan on adding the 4" Readlift kit, some AT or MT tires, Amp steps, and a Tonneau cover.

  39. You haven't been paying attention if you've never heard of GM black paint being soft. They are fairly notorious for it. I've scratched mine with a brand new ultra plush microfiber. It's actually pretty ridiculous. You are correct is easier to correct but detailers cringe when you say you have a black GM vehicle... Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  40. I get amused at a the change your own oil crowd. Sure if you want to do it go for it. For 60$ I get my oil changed, tires rotated, fluids filled, car washed in the time it takes me to watch ncis on my phone in the waiting room. The person who does it does many a week. In his first week he probably has done more oil changes than the do it yourselfers do in a lifetime. Errors are made, that’s life. Establish a relationship with your dealer. After all the want you to come back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  42. Take some pics after your install if you dont mind. I am really interested in doing this as well. I have a slight shake 75-80 that it would be worth trying to see if it fixes. You plan on installing yourself? Any downside to a two piece versus one piece?

  48. Dirty oil is AFMs worst enemy. The lifters and VLOM and other parts have also been updated since it was first introduced making it more reliable. How reliable? Well, many people have issues just over the 100K mile mark while others double that without trouble. It also seems that the system is even more reliable in the Gen V motors. AFM adds moving parts and moving parts wear out. A Suburban with a 5.3 is not going to benefit from AFM as much as a Tahoe or regular cab pick up truck as it is much heavier. There's a saying, by deleting AFM, one gets Gen III reliability with Gen IV durability. Many people disable AFM through a tune or disabling device, the parts are still there and can fail, but still better than if it was operating. One frustration is that when it usually goes, there's no warning, it starts with a collapsed lifter. In your 2018, I don't think you'll have to worry about it for a long long time. Keep your oil clean and run Dexos/synthetic, don't switch brands/types which can lead to sludge problems, and change it before 7500 miles, preferrably every 5k miles and call it good.
