  1. Oops, this should be in this section: https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/forum/3-1999-2013-silverado-sierra-1500/ Please move if you may. Thanks!
  2. Hi there! Man it's been a long time since I been on this site! That rusty 01 is long gone!! LOL Anyway, I have a dilemma, we just purchased a 2013 Yukon XL Denali (kind of a rushed purchase, figured I could deal with the moon roof, I was wrong). My question is, what can I do to get more head room in this thing? Are there any seat mods that can be done to give me a little more room? I am 6'3" and totally uncomfortable driving this beast! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  3. Update: Blackbear tune is awesome! Oh and more weight on the spring bars really helps a lot! Didn't realize one needs to use the trailer tongue jack to raise up the rear of the truck a bit to make spring bar installation much easier! Now I have virtually no bounce! Yay!!
  4. UPDATE: I ended up ordering the Curt hitch. Hasn't been installed yet but I will give an update once it is installed and I try er out!
  5. Worked on the bounce issue more last Summer. Ended up not having the hitch head up far enough. Still need to move it up a bit more but the bounce has been pretty much settled. Can't wait to test the beast out this season with my new Blackbear tune!
  6. Miss my ol sled. Been two years sled free now. Just didn't have the time to ride anymore and was sick of waiting for snow! Is it Summer yet??
  7. That Curt hitch seems mighty beefy! Looks like the one I will most likely go with. Going to inspect the factory hitch first just to see what condition it really is in.
  8. Thinking sensor but since it's kind of a PITA I just wanted to see what others thought before I replace it.
  9. I had a mechanical guage hooked up to it to verify pressure.
  10. Oil pressure guage stopped working/reading 0. Needle does not move from 0 when key is turned on. Verified that engine does have good oil pressure. I did have an oil leak problem right around the same time the gauge stopped working. Turned out to be oil cooler lines. How should I go about troubleshooting this?
  11. I just installed a tune from Blackbear. Very noticable difference! Really woke up the 8.1! I can actually smoke the tires now LOL
  12. So I decided to drop some coin on a tune from Blackbear. All I can say is wow!! That really woke up that 8.1! Can actaully smoke the tires now if I wanted to! It's like a whole new truck! Passing is way more fun now LOL! Can't wait to see the improvments in towing this Summer! Now to get my dual exhaust installed....

  14. Looking to replace the hitch on the truck in my sig. The original one is rather rusty and a bit sketchy. Any recommendations on which hitches I should consider? TT weighs around 7500 loaded.
