  1. I’ll take them. Just texted you. i got stuck in soft dirt a few inches down with my truck and 8k lbs trailer today. Had a tractor pull me out. Bent hooks but not the frame. Need new hooks! Nate (805) 340-2911
  2. We sold our 2008 Harris Flotebote 250 and picked up a brand new Harris Mariner 230. Looks just like yours! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm looking at the Silverado High Country.  Looks like I'll just wait and see if they bring the gray back for 2022. Out of curiosity, I'll look at that Dark Sky Metallic in the GMC. Thanks 

  4. Just on the Silverado or on both the Sierra and Silverado? I believe it’s called Dark Sky Metallic on the GMC... I wanted that color originally and then went with onyx black on an AT4 to have it all color matched. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had AMP steps on my last truck for 3.5 years with no issue with the battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Will check it out. The more I research it, the more I think only doing the 2” might leave me wanting more of a drastic change for all that money. Maybe a 6-8” 4 link! Haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That’s right. When I plug in that adaptor (part lifted above) with no trailer, I get the side view cameras to stay on all the time and the screen switches to the one side with the lane change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve had my truck nearly 1 year and 14k miles (2020 AT4 HD. I’ve been waiting to alter it to see what companies come out with (have only done a cover and ceramic coating the week I bought it). I was originally thinking a 2-3” coil over conversion kit like the one BDS offers on the previous gen HDs, but the reality is I won’t be off-roading this truck like my last one and that suspension is really soft for towing. Done breaking trucks off road and would rather take other power toys (SXS, quad, etc). My truck is my daily and 70% of the driving has been towing. I’m researching the full 4 link air ride system from kelderman (front and back). Curious if anyone has had this system on their current or previous trucks? How is the ride quality and towing? I plan to go from my 9k lbs 35’ bumper pull to a ~12k ish 5er (fully loaded weights). I’m not looking to build as big of a truck as last time around so probably won’t be doing the 6–8” or 7-9” lift with 38-40” tires. Thinking the 2” with 37s and going with an AT instead of an RT/MT tire. The rear suspension has the option of fox shocks with remote reservoir, powder coating and self-leveling. About $7k just for the rear. The front has lots of options Kelderman or else wise). Lots of background info. Would appreciate insights from anyone who has towed heavy with and without air ride systems. Thanks!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Holy ******. Those are going to be huge rims. I had a 6” kit on my old truck. If I did it to this one (2020 AT4 HD) then I’d probably go 37s on 20s. I do take my truck off road though: sand, snow, dirt, etc... the rims are already damaged and I’ve had the truck less than a year. Post a pic when it’s done! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The BDS kit is great. What size tires and rims you planning to run? 37s would look great! Looks funny with the stock tires on there now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I recommend pulling all that off and going with a quality product, like the BDS kit. There’s a reason they warranty their parts for life and give you a 5 year 100k mike power train warranty in the event GM doesn’t honor a warranty claim and can prove the lift was at fault. Then use the tire sizes they recommend. I’ve had highly customized trucks in the past and it’s important to do things right for durability, quality, and safety. The problem is as soon as you tweak something, then you’ve got to correct for it, e.g. my last truck had a 6” lift on 35s.. to do that right I had to replace more than just the suspension to bring everything back in harmony. Tuned the truck, put 4.10 OEM gears, AMP steps to climb up in it, super spring because lifted trucks don’t tow great, breaks because tires we 4” taller and 40lbs heavier, etc, etc.. next thing you know $10k+ spent.

  12. Your 5er is well within your tow rating. The 20” wheels and taller tires may impact ride quality a bit. You’ll see a drop in MPG due to the bigger diameter. Depending on how aggressive the tread is and heavy the tires are, MPG and ride comfort will fluctuate, e.g. an AT will be much better than an MT. As long as your new tires meet the towing specs you called out above, then you’ll be fine. A 2020 3500 DRW (gas or diesel) will still have plenty of towing capacity for your 13k lbs trailer: payload, axle, hitch weight, etc.. As a point of reference, I lifted my last truck 6” and went from 31” tires to 35”. It killed the towing capability. I ended up doing a re-gear, tuner, super spring, etc. etc. to get back performance. That always a 1500 gas truck though. My 2020 AT4 Dmax is still sitting stock... debating lift and tires for it. I pull a 35’ 9k lbs trailer now but looking at 12k lbs trailers.

  13. You just doubled your payload. Good move!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve got the same truck with just under 3,100lbs of payload on the sticker. Checked it on the lot before I purchased it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
