  1. Remove bed, wire wheel the frame, 2 or 3 coats of POR15. Worked really well on my 2006. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I had a shop do it. It was about $1500 total for the TruTrac differential, new rear brake pistons and shoes, and all new bearings and seals with labor. Gears only would be quite less. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. I would bet that a step down to 275/55/20 or even 255/75/17 would see a solid increase in range. Anything else you can do to lower weight would help. Lowering the truck for better aero would also help I'd bet. Is it fast? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. The factory drop in liner has been in my 2006 since it was new. So far, the inside of the bed is last place I've seen rust, haha. If my next pickup comes without a drop in, I'll probably leave the bed naked just to make people upset. It's going to develop serious structural rust from the channels underneath well before a few scratches in the bed condemn it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. System needs to be checked by a qualified tech... it is likely low or high pressure. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Watch this and you'll never consider an after market cover. Other than Banks, anyway. It is good karma to remove the cover, clean the magnet, and inspect the gears. Then reinstall with a fresh seal. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. Sweet upgrade! Glad it worked out easily. I definitely don't think it would fit in my 17's. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I have had Bilstein 5100's for 125,000 miles and they are good so far. No rust on them either (but quite a bit of gravel rash). Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Bumping this thread for 215,000 miles in Rusty. Still racking up the miles.
  10. Yep, my OEMs are 15 years old and still work. No leaks. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. If you like the Silverado tails, they are a direct fit... otherwise gotta pay to play. The cheap aftermarket lights fall apart in a couple years and people end up pulling the OEMs out and running them for another 10 years. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. IMO the best deal would be keeping the 2017... assuming you paid $50k for it, that's like 88 cents a mile in depreciation! That doesn't pencil. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. Just buy stock size Michelins and forget about it, they will ride amazing. Usually have to level to fit much larger, which won't improve the ride, and rubbing doesn't either. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. LMC truck has fair prices on OEM. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. I am planning cutting all the rust oyt and painting the edges on my 2006. This sould actually slow it down. IMO flares covering rust are kind of like lipstick on a pig. I also think they trap water and make it worse faster. You should also know that it is rusting from the inside out, so anything you do externally really won't make a difference.
