    2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 6.2L
  1. So overall it is a FabTech Gen 2 6” Lift Front: 4” Dirt Logic Coilovers Fab Tech Uniball UCA Rear: 2.25” Dirt Logic Shocks BDS Add- A Leaf The difference between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 lifts is that the Gen 1 like most Independent front suspension lifts will increase the track width in the front by around an inch and three quarters, the Gen 2 will not increase track width in the front whatsoever Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. You’re definitely right with this, had the leveling kit on my truck for 3 and a half years and when the lift kit was being installed the ball joints were shot, not a huge deal as I was installing new uniball upper control arms but the lowers had to be replaced as well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Thanks, yeah when the truck was stock it rode really good once it was levelled it stiffened up the ride up in the front and when I added the leaf in the rear it stiffened the rear, I did like the way it rode but some might have found it just slightly stiff, that was with 275/65R20(34”) Goodyear Duratracs. The lift made my truck ride better than it did when it was factory height, what I noticed which helped tie all of the components together was the upper uniball control arms. It gained down travel which helped a lot when hitting pot holes and speed bumps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Went from a Readylift 2.25” levelling Kit and BDS Add a Leaf in the rear riding on the factory rancho Shocks to a 6” Fabtech lift with the 4” Dirt Logic Coilovers in the front and 2.25” in the back and still has the BDS Ads a Leaf I can honestly say the ride has gotten better than when it was stock height even. The on road dynamics are very controlled and you can hardly feel potholes or any cracks in the road. So far I have only taken it down gravel roads in terms of off-road driving but it takes the washboards very good and doesn’t shake the truck at all. What affects how the truck rides at any height is the shocks and how much travel you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I used to have those retrofit headlights too and has the exact same issue and picked up a new set and couldn't get them working, got to the point where I prettymuch gave up hid' s then talked to the local guy I deal with for headlights and led' s and he created a canbus kit for our truck's, plugged it all in no wiring all across the truck and hooking up grounds just plugging into the factory Input and adding the ballasts and worked right away. Definitely a reputable company and a guy I trust and he does a ton of headlight builds and stuff in Canada and is known www.esskcustoms.com Sent from my SM-G935W8 using Tapatalk

  7. Thought I did a thorough search but realized I didn't look through the pinned posts, I see my issue is pretty similar to the steering wheel "glitch" other people are having, but unlike everyone else's mine only has the stabilitrak light and warning pop up on the dash every couple times the steering wheel pops back Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I've got a 2014 Sierra Denali, had it since brand new it's got 55000km on it and while I was out I had the steering wheel go crazy on me if I tried to move it in any way. I was parked, hopped out real quick, then got back in the truck and when I went to move it as soon as I moved the steering wheel it sounded as if the whole bcm reset then when I went to move my steering wheel back to center it would spring back super hard and go crazy, I tried that and it did it twice before I pulled my phone out to record, I'll attach the video in the next comment, has anyone had this happen before? I'd never heard of this till a buddy with a 2014 all terrain had the same thing happen about six months ago, and it happened two more times and the techs still couldn't replicate it or figure out why it was doing then and eventually he just got too paranoid and traded it in and got a ram. I'll attach the videos of this happening on his once I get them. I'm calling the dealership first thing in the morning to see if they have a clue as well as GM Canada. Any one have any insight to this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Is your cup holder lit up around the bottom? Did you do that mod yourself? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just a couple things to try if you haven't, the transmission is self learning so try resetting that, another option that some people do is go into manual and leave it in 5, the last one which I do sometimes is turn on tow haul mode, can't see your signature as I'm on the mobile app but if it's changed from oem then sometimes the transmission gets confused from the previous shifting points learned before so a reset is your best bet Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. What I'd recommend is what I'm doing to my truck, I'm getting the Icon suspension kit, it's a longer than stock travel suspension and since it's a coil over in the front it's adjustable from 0-3" of lift, from everywhere I've looked it's going to give you the best daily able set up and is going to fit all my needs which are much like yours, the only difference being mine has 20's, if you want to maintain a bit of rake to be able to put stuff in the back and tow I'd recommend adding a leaf in the back, it's what I did and it added the right amount of rake. These trucks look nose high when they are perfectly level so that inch or so of lift the leaf adds makes it look level Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. haha if you want them you can buy them and i'll ship them to you. yes they stand taller and narrower than the 33's would.
  13. Either a set of 33x12.50's or 275/65R20's(34's) would look good Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If you've got instagram the first place i would go in SoCal is to a guy named Josh, his instagram username is stftw and he is located in Camarillo, CA. Whether or not they can tell i don't remember, with dodges its by how many key strokes and such, so i believe if you get it swapped back a day or so before you go in for any work you should be fine. I've brought mine into the dealership with the tune in and it was completely fine
