  1. Can you share some pics and details about the amp and speakers you used in place of stock? I, too have a non-Bose and want to amp and replace the stock speakers. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Definitely wanting to see the console install. Power folding mirrors on an LT trim would also be excellent. Those are the only two things I really want on my truck that it didn’t come with. The dealer just didn’t have my truck with buckets on the day I went in and I didn’t want an LTZ this time mostly because I really wanted red hot color. So, here I am in want of console and mirrors.

  3. Many of the lifts that I have seen include such things so there are no issues when they roll off the lot I won’t be installing my lift until the spring, but I will be installing that adapter if a better device doesn’t come along first. Seems like a straight forward, simple fix. I would expect shops like 4wheel parts have installed them for sure. Might drop them a line or give a call. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. An option:: Hypertech Speedometer Calibrators Inline - Part #730129
  5. No worries. It works the same as posted above with the tune. Warranties by law cannot be voided. Claims can be denied on the basis that the failure was not a true defect in material or workmanship. The tune is likely to be more good than harm as it will allow for proper shift points and use of the torque converter and clutches in the trans. You are right, the program has to be removed before service, but that is pretty standard. The hard part is understanding failure analysis when something happens and then knowing what your recourse is at that time. I am not doing a lift until the spring, but I will be doing a BDS 4” and 35 1250s on 20s with a program to correct tire size. So, I will soon enough be putting my money where my mouth is. I can tell you I ran larger tires in the past without a tune and there was definitely a negative effect on performance in shifting and mileage. Lesson learned. Best thing to do is know your mods. Do the right thing. And hold the dealer accountable for their part as well as the other manufacturers for theirs. The only way to mitigate the risk is to keep it stock. If you’re like me, every time you look at your truck, you imagine it sitting tall with bigger tires and wheels. Stock is a tough choice. Lol.
  6. An aftermarket programmer like the Hypertech would correct for the calibrations due to tire size and revs. There are many lifts, levels, and tire size mods on the road. The likelihood of a problem is low provided you use widely used and established products and options. Extreme lifts, new companies, extreme offsets, etc. would not be advisable. But, if you’re going mainstream with well known products and manufacturers, you’re not likely to be dissatisfied even if you do encounter an issue. Just my $.02. Be sure to send pics or it didn’t happen. [emoji16][emoji1303] J Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. For what it’s worth, as a previous heavy duty engine rep, it was my duty to inform people that warranties are not voided. Coverage for a repair considered warranty can be denied if the part causing failure is a non-manufacturer part or failed as a result of installation of a non-manufacturer part. The manufacturer of the lift should have a warranty that bridges that gap should the unfortunate incident occur. In respect to that, my own personal thoughts and preference would be toward a product like BDS with a no questions asked warranty. I hope this helps with your decision. J
  8. Had some other things to do at the dealer so I mentioned this since I was showing 80% life at 2K miles. They inspected the pads and found them at slightly less than 100%. They reset the indicator and sent me on my way. As such, I removed the brake wear indicator from the displayed items and am blissfully unaware of its reading.
  9. Bump. Any intel on this topic? Interested in possibilities for power fold and lighting.
  10. X2 on this. I just ran into the same question. Why would composite leaf spring make a difference? On the accessories site, that’s what the restrictions cite.
  11. I run that tire on a stock 15 Sierra Z71 CCSB. It rubs in two distinct places. The driver side rubs in reverse wheels turned left about 15 degrees before lock and it is just on the plastic that is attached to the lower rear wheel well. The passenger side rubs wheels turned right low speed going either direction on the wheel well liner. The right side is easy to rectify with a zip tie to hold the liner back. Did that on 14 Silverado with same tires. Corrected problem. Driver side looks like plastic can be trimmed a bit. Passenger side you wouldn't know unless you were looking for it. The driver side plastic makes a very noticeable noise only in reverse. All in all not a deal breaker by any means. The truck looks and rides super nice with those tires IMO. Picture taken while doing some garage rearranging.
