  1. Fox Shocks....how do they hold up?

    I cannot remember the part # I measured the length and diameter and bought direct from Outerwears. They will also make cover for any size you want if one of the listed sizes doesn't work. https://www.outerwears.com/products.asp?cat=12150
  2. Katzkin Leather Upgrade

    I went to Top Coverage near me https://www.topcoveragenorth.com/ There price for just the seats was about the same as the online places you can buy from. CanadaSeatSkins.com has good prices and you can build any way you want
  3. Fox Shocks....how do they hold up?

    I tried clear coating my fox coilovers but after 1st winter they looked like crap. I used a scotch pad to clean the bodies then coated the threads with thin layer of anti sieze and got coilover covers last fall. This spring I removed the covers and they still look perfect and the anti sieze layer still looked the same as when I applied it. I just leave the covers on to avoid dirt from getting on them.
  4. Katzkin Leather Upgrade

    No Katzkin doesn't provide a new center console lid for bucket seat trucks. They automatically ship the center jump seat leather covers. It doesn't make any sense since they make you specify buckets or bench seat when ordering. I went to an interior guy to see if he could use the leather center jump seat covers to make a center console lid but the sizes of the jump seat covers wouldn't work. He recovered my lid with his black leather and french seam matching silver stitch for $250 which no looking back wasn't worth it. My pics in my original thread was with the oe lid. I don't have a pic of the new leather covered lid.
  5. Love the fog lights well worth it and trouble free for 3 years. Color matches Led headlights perfect
  6. 35 on truck with stock rims

    I lowered my BDS 6inch Fox coilovers down to 4.5" of lift in front and left the rear BDS leaf springs with factory block to keep a 2" rake. I also fit 35x12.5 Toyo RT on stock 20" rims no rubbing.
  7. I went to my body shop I want to use and they said my frame is fine. The noises I get over uneven pavement is tire rubbing. The bumper is pushed back on driver side and im rubbing the inner liner and the edge of the chrome bumper. I was concerned about frame damage because when I hit the car the main impact was at the tow hook end of frame rail and i rode up over the cars fender. Im going to a second body shop for state farms authorized estimate monday. My truck only damaged the bumper, top bumper pad and grill

  9. The front of my truck only looks like the lower bumper is damaged and there car is crushed since my truck hit were my tow hook is. I thought mine wasn't bad till I turned into the parking lot and steering was binding and heard some strange groaning, I looked underneath and the BDS crossmember is bent along with the frame where it is bolted to the frame. Anyone ever have to have a frame replaced?
  10. Plugs for those ugly round tubes

    I had these but the issue I had was they hold water inside the cross member tube eventually the inside of the tube and edged around the cap were solid rust.
  11. They only put a cheap quality leather on the faces of the front seats. The sides are all vinyl and the entire back seat is vinyl. I ended up replacing my factory leather/vinyl with Katzkin and upgraded to 100% leather after the black dye started flaking off my driver seat at 20k miles and dealer wouldn't replace it under warranty. I even called GM and they talked to the dealer and told them it is wear and tear and my truck is lifted so there is more wear from getting in and out. I called BS I have nerf bars I use to get it and out they just try to get out of any warranty work they can. I was shocked they replaced my wheels after chrome started pitting and peeling around valve stems.
  12. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    I am thinking GM didn't do much to change the 5.3 and 6.2 because they will probably be replaced in the next 2-3 years with the smaller V8s they are developing on the new Vette and for Cadillac. Cadillac has a new 4.2 V8 and the Vette has a 5.5V8 naturally aspirated and as twin turbo coming on the mid engine car. I am betting the 5.5 V8 will be going into the trucks when they get a midcycle refresh around 2021 or 2022. Hopefully they put an all new interior in also. Overall I really like the new GMC AT4 exterior design, engines and chassis. Only let down was the interior.
  13. Yes the mechanical parts are the same as the ford but unfortunately they do not have the same programming. I am not sure how Ford does with their trans programming but GM cannot make a truck to shift right. The trans could be a good trans be it 6, 8 or 10 speed but its their programming that gives them a bad rep. I drove my friends 2017 ram and the 8 speed in his is flawless. It is always in the gear it should be there is no hesitating when you stomp on it no clunks into a gear and it doesn't appear to have torque management. The power is there when you want it.
  14. How about a final engine option of the LT4 supercharged 650hp in the higher trim trucks (Denali & AT4). Also build a Silverado SS and GMC sport truck with this motor. No truck brand is offering a true performance sport truck any longer. I would never own a 2wd lowered truck but I am sure there would be a market for it.
