  1. I saw this on my OnStar report today for my 2015. Hadn't received a letter though.
  2. I believe this engine is already in the new Expedition if what I read was true. Although I still can't get past having a V6 as a hot engine option. Maybe some day I'll except it. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. Mine had a bit of bounce too.. More than I thought a NHT would have. I installed Bilstein 5100's in the rear, ( actually all the way around) and that took away most of it. However the ride was a bit stiffer so I went back to stock in the rear. It's either bounce or stiffness. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Didn't really do it all today per say however I test fit some tires at Belle tire. They ordered me 285/70/17 Mastercraft MTX mud tires and the same size in a Duratrac. I decided on the Duratrac only because I'm afraid the MTX would be useless on the slippery or wet roads. The MTX looked a little better though and I was really torn. Here are both.

  5. New tires

    Im ordering 285/70/17's for one of my sets of wheels tomorrow. It's a 33" tire.. About 11" wide I think. I have a Bilstein level but I don't think it's required. If your truck is stock I bet they fit.
  6. PCV/Blowby

    I know the manufacturers run the blow by gases into the intake to burn them, thus reducing pollution. Not sure it works but that's the reason I've heard. I believe a catch can helps keep the intake clean by trapping the junk ( liquid and solid) and recirculating the gases.
  7. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Have to share these pics of what my original rotors and pads look like. I bet the pads have 75,000 miles left. Hated having to change brakes at 38,000 miles do to rust build up on the rotor edges. Shouldn't have happened on a 2015 already. You can see in the pic the bumpy rust on the surface. Probably could have had them turned but needed the truck.
  8. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I had this box waiting for me when I got home. Now to find time to get these warped rotors swapped out.
  9. There seen to be a lucky few that have had issues with their 8 speed fixed and stay fixed but it's a minority. There's a trans tech on here that says they are generally unfixable. You may have temporary luck getting a reprogram but issues usually come back. My trans had had multiple updates, a flush, etc. But still acts retarded. I wish you luck!! Only thing these transmissions do well is tow and haul ass when you floor the pedal. I'd you drive nice and easy they are confused.
  10. Audio difference 14-18

    Curious as well to the differences of non bose systems. Mine is a LTZ 2015 non bose but it sounds way better than some base loaners that I've driven. I don't think I have factory amp either. Maybe some of the audio guys on here know.
  11. What have you done to your K2 today?

    That is a stock size, 255/70/17 , however the truck came with 275/55/20 so they look kinda small to me now. Especially considering I had installed 275/60/20's that were 33.1" tall. I'll go to another 33 on these wheels ( 17") and probably keep a stock 265/65/18 on my 18" wheels for trips, winter ,etc. I'm loving my mileage now though. It's nice if I'm empty to get over 20 mpg. Even with a 6.2. Usually about 22 mpg on a semi flat and low stop trip. The more I drive with the smaller tires the more I like them. I had a shake with the 20's so I traded for 17's for more side wall and almost 40# lighter per wheel/ tire.
  12. Bilstein 5100 shocks for 3"-3.5" rear block!

    Another option is to use the regular 5100 that accommodates a 1" lift and add shock extensions. I have them because I swapped the 1.25" stock block for a 3". The extensions I bought are very heavy duty, not a flimsy piece of junk. I like doing it this way because I can use my stock shocks or my Bilsteins.. Or go back to stock height if I want and use any shock I want. Right now I have Bilsteins in front and stock in rear. Seems to give the best ride on my 2015 NHT.
  13. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    My wife just got a Stinger GT. What a sweet ride it is. Quick and rides decent. I'd change a few things they did but overall the Koreans did a great job. Never thought I'd even look at a rice burner, however GM has done what it could to try to push me away. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. 2015 leaking rear axle seal

    It's the larger one ( confess standard with 6.2 liter). 9.76 I believe. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
