  2. Took the family to the Mat-Su Fall Festival yesterday and it was their first time riding in the blazer. The kids thought.it was too loud at first, but quickly got used to it and by the time we got there they didnt want to get out of the "monster" truck lol [emoji23][emoji41] Also, my wife learned that the Blazer isnt a sports car and doesnt handle has well as her Honda Odyssey lol but she enjoyed driving it home Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  5. That looks really great. Kinda want to do something similar with the heritage bowtie with black gloss wrap on my midnight edition. I'm only holding back because I Have the illuminated bowtie in front. Overall excellent looking Sent from my SM-G986U1 using Tapatalk

  6. Wow is that thing MINT!! 302 Z, too - don't see very many of those around anymore! Was a ton of car shows around yesterday. The local one got canceled, and the guys putting it on never update their website, so tons of cars came up expecting a show, and had to leave. Made a great show for us, at least, lol. I usually never go, because all I do is kick myself in the ass for a month afterwards for getting rid of my '72 El Camino. I'll never live that one down ... ? Should have restored this one with the money I wasted on my Silverado, and bought a 12v Cummins for towing. Hindsight is always 20/20, as they say. TRUTH!!

Then next covid stimulates is being held up for funding the blue states who were broke before covid. Now back to watching the (peaceful) demonstrations, as reported by CNN.

  10. Just picked her up Friday. 2020 LT Trail Boss, 5.3 liter. Didn’t really want the running boards or sports bar, but stock was very limited and I really wanted the color and standard bed. I’m actually starting to like the look. I’m very happy so far. First Chevy. Coming from a Ram 1500. What tonneau covers can I use with the sport bar?

  11. I put falken wildpeaks 295/70 on my TB... I thought they were supposed to be 34” tire but they measure 33”-33.5” tall on the truck. They’re about 1” taller and 1” wider than factory tires. They do not rob at all. And they handle and ride just as good as the factory tires heres a crap picture of mine with them and motofab 1” level.

  12. This thin as water thing pops up from time to time and it is always based on the idea that the thickness of the oil is based on the viscosity of the oil. Which is only 1/3 of the equation. The Hersey number. Viscosity is resistance to flow, not thickness but you need to know the viscosity to get the Hersey number. You also need to know the load or pressure divided by area and velocity. Oil film thickness is based on velocity, viscosity and load. Change one one of these and the films thickness changes. (Velocity X viscosity) / load. The number is without dimension so the actual value is found experimentally by holding two steady and varying the third. Velocity is typically the one that is changed. Once found the result is compared to the asperity height of the machined surface and the Stribeck curve is generated. What all this means is that the required viscosity is dependant on operational conditions and temperature as temperature influences viscosity. AND the smoothness of the surface being lubricated. Water, at room temperature has a viscosity of 1 centipoise or 1 cPs as it's density is 1. Pretty thin, right? Ever hydroplane a vehicle in a down pour? Yes is the right answer. That is velocity creating a large enough film thickness to lift your two ton vehicle above the pavement. If you have enough velocity even a VERY small viscosity can be enough.

  18. Gotcha cool. I see now how it works. I just don't like running spacers and like a wheel that fits without spacers but it's good to have an option for those who need. I don't care for small spline lugs and I like large hex lugs to fill the oversize lug pockets. Smaller lugs just get lost. Not sure what other styles come in extended lugs. Some K2 wheels would require more than a 10mm spacer though. Some as little as 3mm and some over 10mm". Here's a K2 GM wheel CK162 we tried on a T1 and spaced with washers to see what it would take and it would've needed a 15.875 mm (5/8") spacer to clear. 1/2" was still hitting the caliper. You'd need a thick spacer and a pretty deep extended lug to clear caliper. I wouldn't do it and wouldn't run a spacer that thick. Anyway, thanks for posting!

  19. Got the Katzkins installed. After having black leather in the last 5 trucks, I wanted something different, that wasn’t plain and so factory looking. Was a bold move, but I’m very happy with the outcome.

  20. I swear the factory LED reverse lights are really powered by fireflies. So I fixed that issue yesterday. I made my own bracket out of aluminum and bolted it to the underside of the receiver through existing holes. I already know I'm going to change the bracket to make it into this shape '''''''''''''''''''''''''''\__/''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''. Then the lights will hang from the bracket. You'll never see the bracket because it will be behind the bumper, and its all completely removable. The only permanent mod is cutting the tip off the accessory firewall grommet behind the battery to run the wire inside for the switch. The bracket isn't painted yet because I was literally just mocking this up to see how it would work. I'll probably make the new bracket next weekend and get it painted black. I used Rough Country 6 inch slim line lights. They put out 2880 lumens. I may swap them to the 10 inch slim line lights that put out 4800 lumens when I make the new bracket.

  21. Anyone get this working yet? My main interest is what is the proper cable to connect to the camera cable. I intend to pull the cameras from 3rd brake light, plug in an extension camera cable, then make a custom third brake light for the Leer shell with the main rear view camera in it. I intend to mount the bed camera facing up on top of the shell so I can see the cargo on the thule rack attached to the shell, so it will be a rack cam instead of a bed cam.

  26. If no one has notice the OEM's have a strict set of guidelines on power to weight. There's a reason you can't get a 6.2 in a RCSB or a blown Hemi in same. Want more power? Carry more weight. Until it doesn't matter anymore. In the mean time lock out the computers and make it cost prohibitive to swap a real power into a light weight. Add lots of bling and the crows and raccoons will drown themselves to buy one.

  28. That wouldn’t happen. I can only drive one a a time. I’m just trying to be rational. But hey it took me 40 years. I spent a fortune building hot rod trucks. Only to have my wife’s sports sedan keep up and get great gas mileage doing it. If I wasn’t retired I’d probably already have the hot Ram ordered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  30. How is it a GM engineering problem when your radiator is no longer entirely within the shroud? Is there a plug along the bottom of the radiator, to fill the gap below the radiator, so the air is forced to go through the radiator instead of just going around it?

  32. Use Google to help in your search. This forum's search feature can be frustrating. The answer to your question is dealt with many times here and worth reading. A couple of years back I was faced with a similar dilemma. My research and experience led me to purchase tires equal to the size posted in my door. Larger tires will cost more initially and at every fill-up. Investing in premium quality tires, of the recommended size, will give you the best performance out of the options you are considering. Adding diameter and/or weight to your wheels does have an aesthetic appeal to some but there will be a loss in efficiency and no improvement in performance.

  33. This quote from you is what I'm refering to: All I'm saying, is that "whose T1" is not fair; it has to be a T1 that you have been driving in order to compare it to your 29 mpg. I didn't say 2019's could match or exceed your current Pepper, just that in order to make a fair comparison, the test has to be conducted by the same person on the same roads under the same usage... and it has to be a similarly equipped truck, because yours is stripped down so far it looks like it escaped the factory on lunch break. Weight kills MPG. The rest of your post is just wandering in circles, I ain't arguing against any of that whatsoever; just that you need to compare apples to apples.

  34. BossTaco, I decided to go with the American Work Cover, I had one on my last truck for 10 years without any issue so I decided to go with the know good option, its a 6 to 8 week wait time but I'll post some pictures once its on!

  36. The Fram Ultra is one of the best filters on the market, if not the best. I use them on all of the vehicles I maintain. The orange Extra Guard cans are the crap that soiled the Fram name, but the rest of their lineup is solid.

  38. Not the point bud. We know he doesn't like the T1 and that's fine. Pure opinion but, to keep posting how ugly they are and how he hates them to those who like them and have them on these T1 threads is freakin ridiculous. It's not to argue with him but his point is well taken but geez, go start a single cab section and keep your ass there if you're just gonna bash the T1. Not a soul here would bash his truck if he wouldn't keep bashing the T1. Thousands like their T1. Be happy or those who love their T1. When a thread asks would you "rebuy" a T1 he says NO! It looks like a damn Edsel. Really???? He doesn't even have one. Fu*I<in stupid. You'd think someone with that many posts would be more of an asset with positive comments and helping members but instead it's all about being negative and how ugly the T1 is. It's just getting old...

  40. Finally got the Black Pearl how I like her... Took a while to install but well worth it. The kit does fit the double cab regardless of what RCX says on instruction book and on the phone ?. Also, did not have to take apart the strut at all, contrary to the instruction manual again. Spoke directly to RCX about a missing preload spacer that is supposed install into the strut. This has been discontinued for the Silverado. One more thing.... I’m running 35x12.5x18 wheels w 2” spacers and absolutely no rubbing on any of the lift components. Love the lift!!!

  42. Certainly; Filler Tube - 12691785 Upper Insulator - 12674122 Valve Cover Gasket - 12619787 I did not need the valve cover gasket. They're reusable but for $4.00 it was good insurance to have it. I cleaned the head surface and gasket, which stayed in the valve cover, with a shop towel and rubbing alcohol. Set it back on carefully and did a two step torque sequence from center bolts out. 44 in lbs first pass, 89 in lbs second pass.

  45. I removed the grab handle & behind it is a grommet. I fed the wires through the grommet & over to the back of the trailer plug located in the box. (I have an HD). From there, I removed the plug and disconnected the 12v hot lead & ground wire from the plug & made the connection to the LED light strip there. Once the connection was made, I put the plug back together and popped it back in place. If you don’t have the box mounted plug, you can just run the wires further down to the standard trailer plug by the receiver.
