  1. I lost a 305 in my 95 C1500 when the adapter that bolts into the block that the oil filter screwed onto let go as I was driving down the road. I dumped all the oil out and even though I pulled over as soon as the oil pressure dropped I burned the rod bearings enough to justify replacement. GM warrantied it. So not because of the oil or too long between changes, but sort of oil related.
  2. This looks like it’s going to be a good story. Please post lots of details on how you got the HD front clip installed.
  3. 285/55/20 stretched onto a 20x12 looks awful. 305/50/20 would look better. but either size with just a 2.5” level is going to require a decent amount of trimming too.
  4. I’ve only ever bought Chevys. ‘84, ‘95, ‘03, ‘06, and ‘14. The only real regret is not keeping them all.
  5. here’s my 10 year older trail grapplers. Probably have around 35-40k on them total between the two trucks.
  6. I’ve had the same set of trail grapplers for 10 years and two trucks. They’re still well over 50% tread. They wear like iron. I’m replacing soon just due to age and maybe a wheel diameter change. I never ran them in winter, but the only caution I will give is they are not siped. So I always take it easy on wet roads because they do like to break loose. not sure if I’ll get them again just because after that long I just want to have something different. Not because I didn’t like them. It down to another set of trails, toyo mt, toyo rt, or maybe MT ATZ P3. All depends if I stick with 20s or go up to 22s.
  7. The CST lift drops the front end the full 4.5 inches. So you could run the bilstein struts as you have them configured now with the CST strut spacer and end up with 6.25 inches of lift and suspension angles like you have now. You would have to lift the rear up accordingly as well, if you tell CST they could probably provide a taller block to compensate. Yes you would need longer rear shocks too.
  8. That’s a Bronco Sport. It is a soccer mom grocery getter. The real Bronco from the commercials isn’t out yet.
  9. I would say that it is quite literally broken down.
  10. Did you get a warranty when you bought the truck? Would be a tough fight but maybe you have some type of recourse.
  11. That’s definitely a cut from a prior lift install that has been removed and then welded back. The only way to fix it is to reweld the area.
  12. Got any more pics and specs on this truck?
  13. 2007 GMC Acadia. Brand new platform and first year. We special ordered it was soon they were taking orders. Waited months to get it. From a design and features standpoint it was perfect for our family. problems from day one. Transmission programming, sunroof leaks, squeaky brake pedal, moaning steering. The dealer really tried, replaced the steering rack, pump, column, master cylinder, and performed numerous TSBs. It made so many awful sounds we named it Mona. Final straw was when the water pump failed, it overheated, shutdown and left my wife and son stranded on the road. Traded it in with only 41,000 miles on it, and she’s been in a Yukon and Tahoe ever since. Still to this day she says that was her favorite car from a design and fitting her needs standpoint. But she refuses to get another because of the experience with that one.
  14. Glad to see those wheels finally get some worthy tires.
