  1. This is only photo I can find that’s a clear side shot. This is with the above set-up and maintains about a 1/2” rake, but it appears level and stance is just right.
  2. Running the rough county 2.5” level kit with rear block. https://www.roughcountry.com/gm-leveling-lift-kit-1305-10.html?find=2017-gmc-sierra-1500-4wd-374179 With the 275/60/20 Goodyear duratrac https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Goodyear&tireModel=Wrangler+DuraTrac&partnum=76SR0WDT&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes These tires have 16/32, where as the Nitto have 14/32 depth. Im running them on the stock All Terrain wheels which are same as your except the painted accents. I have zero issues and zero rub. LMK if you want pics.
  3. Well, I pulled the trigger.....For $350 there is no real difference. I purchased the 5500k since they are the “brightest”. Versus stock head lights the only REAL difference is color (perfectly matches the LED running lights in my opinion) and they are brighter to about 25 feet. Beyond that, there is little no difference and certainly no $350 difference. These would be acceptable for $100, for $350 they are a waste of money, unless the color is a big factor for you. IMHO.
  4. Yours is from the next page of the manual. Thats my following post after the one your quoted. That is IF it can run E85
  5. Vehicles with a yellow fuel cap can use either unleaded gasoline or fuel containing up to 85% ethanol (E85). All other vehicles should use only the unleaded gasoline as described in Fuel The use of E85 or FlexFuel is encouraged when the vehicle is designed to use it. E85 or FlexFuel is made from renewable sources. To help locate fuel stations that carry E85 or FlexFuel, the U.S. Department of Energy has an alternative fuels website. See www.afdc.energy.gov/afdc/locator/ stations. E85 or FlexFuel should meet ASTM Specification D 5798 or CAN/ CGSB–3.512 in Canada. Do not use the fuel if the ethanol content is greater than 85%. Fuel mixtures that do not meet ASTM or CGSB specifications can affect driveability and could cause the malfunction indicator lamp to come on. For the 6.0L V8 engine, after refueling, the vehicle calculates the composition of the fuel. It is not recommended to repeatedly switch between fuels. If fuels are switched frequently, add as much fuel as possible and do not add less than 11 L (3 gal) when refueling. Drive at least 11 km (7 mi) immediately after refueling to allow the vehicle to adapt to the change in ethanol concentration. Because E85 or FlexFuel has less energy per liter (gallon) than gasoline, the vehicle will need to be refilled more often.
  6. From the manual of a 2017 GMC Sierra 5.3 If the vehicle has a yellow sticker on the fuel door, E85 or FlexFuel can be used. (See E85 or FlexFuel section) Except the 6.2L engine, use regular unleaded gasoline meeting ASTM specification D4841 with a posted octane rating of 87 or higher. Do not use gasoline with a posted octane rating of less than 87, as this may cause engine knock and will lower fuel economy. For the 6.2L engine, premium unleaded gasoline meting ASTM specification D4841 with a posted octane rating of 93 is highly recommended for best performance and fuel economy. Unleaded gasoline with an octane rrated as low as 87 can be used. Using unleaded gasoline rated below 93 octane, however, will lead to reduced acceleration and fuel economy. CAUTION: Do not use fuels with any of the following conditions; doing so may damage the vehicle and void its warranty: - For vehicles which are not FlexFuel, fuel labeled greater than 15% ethanol by volume, such as mid-level ethanol blends (16-50% ethanol), E85, or FlexFuel.
  7. Elevation edition in W/T trim and all W/T trim doesn't have them. All other trim levels have the rear liners.
  8. Intune i2 - Updated software and worked great on my 2017.
  9. https://gm.oemdtc.com/6571/pi0281e-underbody-component-corrosion-2017-and-prior-gm-passenger-cars-and-light-duty-trucks PI0281E: Underbody Component Corrosion – 2017 And Prior GM Passenger Cars And Light Duty Trucks With pictures. enjoy. "Note: During transit between the plant and the dealer, some of the exhaust system components may corrode as a result of salt exposure. These exhaust parts are made of a bare mild-grade stainless steel that will oxidize, or appear rusty. Over time, these components will have a uniform rust-like discoloration, which should be considered a normal condition."
  10. Not DuraTracs. Look like Ridge Grapplers. I think i owned my last truck about 36 hours before I was putting the new tires on it haha.
  11. **EDIT** Found the TSB https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2016/SB-10082422-5448.pdf?_ga=1.199104815.1234650766.1492085211
  12. Ya, there are several threads on how to "fix" it. I am going to have the dealer replace the exhaust, but I was hoping I could get them to replace with the GM Borla one and pay the difference.
  13. Had the same issues with passenger side not folding. It was an intermittent issue. Finally it quit all together after about a year of sometimes working sometimes not. Dealer replaced the entire mirror advising it was a bad mirror motor.
