  1. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I got to drive her again. Been in the body shop, but looks good as new. Backstory: Guy tried to back in a parking spot beside me on Mother’s Day while we were eating. Side swiped my driver door in the process. Mind you I have no idea this has happened, I’m inside the restaurant eating with no visual on the parking lot. He tried to run..thankfully there were a couple of guys waiting outside the restaurant to be seated that saw it happen, and they literally ran across the parking lot taking pictures and videos of the guy as he left. Apparently he saw them doing this, and decided to turn around. Hell they were ready to fight the guy bc they thought he flipped them off and he hit another mans truck and tried to run. They were more livid than I was. I don’t know who they were, wish I had got their info, I owe them some beer and another big thank you for saving me 1300. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Back at It

    One of the easiest ways is to google what mod you want to do and add “gm-trucks forum” to the end of your search with the quotes, or “gm-trucks.com forum”. It’ll bring up search results from the various forums on this site first. Usually a good starting point to see what’s out there already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well, you could get coil overs that would ride even better, so I guess 5100s could or couldn’t be the best way to go, it’s all relative to whatever you’ve got in mind. You can do any option you’ve listed of the 3, the best option is relative to what you want to achieve. Looking to stay level and have a smooth ride? are you looking to go 4” up front and leave the back at stock height with the Billy’s? Only the fronts are adjustable, This would achieve the dirty diaper look; but you’d be riding rough and more than likely be replacing/upgrading some other components upfront sooner than later. If you are going to keep them at stock height with your current level, then there would really be no need to purchase the adjustable series. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Speakers in the bed

    They are impressive little things man! My wife is a manager at ATT and gets to take home display models sometimes when they get swapped for a new display. Needless to say we have a damn army of them haha. Most are waterproof too so if you forgot it in the truck bed you’d be ok. Ultimate ears have some really nice options big and small, you can link multiple speakers together as well to put in different rooms or around the yard outside at a cookout. Those are the ones I use the most. I’ll take them kayak fishing/camping and use them a long time before they die, loud and good sound quality. We have a couple Bose, and they do sound great, I don’t know if they sound as great as the price is; they don’t get quite as loud as the UE I mentioned, but they are probably not the largest ones they make either to be fair. The Polk speakers we have no longer hold a charge beyond 10-20 min, wouldn’t recommend, they are nice to hang on the shower head though for a quick jam session. There’s also one made by braven she so kindly let me take to use in the garage. We have a fairly large 2 car, can’t hear it over say a miter saw obviously, but it does great in there overall.

  5. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I’ve had all 4 corners with Billy’s for about 65k miles now, love them. Run fronts on highest setting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Speakers in the bed

    Dude there’s Bluetooth speaker options that are loud, would fit the bill for what you want, and would be a hell of a lot easier too lol. sit it in your bed or even throw a magnet on the bottom and stick it somewhere back there when you wanna use it. Throw it in the truck to charge when you’re not using it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. WeatherTech vs. Husky Liners?

    I always used WT too until about 5 years ago when I got my first set of husky. I like the more rubbery feel and grip to the husky versus the WT I had in the past, they always seemed a little slick when wet feet hit them. The husky seemed thicker and more supple than what I can recall of the WT I had too. They just seemed like stiff thin rubbery plastic, and the edges would curl eventually. I have the husky xact model I believe it’s called up front, and actually run the WT liner in the rear. It seemed to have better one piece coverage at the time of purchase vs the husky offerings 5 years or so ago. That being said I went all husky for the wife’s Jeep, I probably won’t go back to WT.

  8. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    Well I’m out of it now. Memorial day weekend driving broke the 72k mark for me. I didn’t notice any issues braking though and I was for sure tuned in to it after the letter, that was with a decent load in the bed too. Time will tell! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Help

    Is that the license plate area? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    No problem. I’ve kept up with routine maintenance but I do notice it can take a little more foot effort slowing up at stoplight sometimes. it could just be in my head now that I read the letter lol. I saw a message flash once in the DIC very briefly but I can’t recall what it said to service. I want to say it was parking sensors related though as I painted mine a little too thick and blocked them on my first try. Pads were good at last state inspection 4 months ago , mechanic actually commented on the brakes being in great shape for oem and 5 years old or so. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    It stated that my VIN qualified, May just be for 2015 models or specific ones Im not sure, but here’s the letter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Mid-sized truck logic?

    I mean honestly there's a huge market for mid size trucks, that's why the prices are the way they are. Most people shopping for a mid size aren't doing it to save money on a truck, they're shopping mid size because it suits their needs and it's what they want. Tacos are even higher because of their name and proven reliability over decades. Your average homeowner can haul most material they would need in a mid size, albeit they may need a trailer occasionally.
  13. I used an entune to turn afm off about 4.5 years ago, no catch can installed. Im just under 72k miles, I’ve seen no change in oil use. As a precaution I do return to stock before dealer visits, if the visit involves popping the hood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    You may have the dealer check the vacuum pump. I’m in a 2015 and brakes are still good, just about to hit 72k mikes. I just received a letter within the last couple weeks from GM stating they are extending coverage for 6 years or 72xxx miles in regards to longer than normal stopping distance at slow speeds caused by vacuum pump issues. Free fix if you’re still in that 6/72, or they’ll reimburse if you’ve paid to have that fixed already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Tire size again

    https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/192873-biggest-tires-to-fit-on-stock-2014-sierra-sle-double-cab-with-25570r1/ https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/179256-biggest-17-rimtire-combo/ I run a different size wheel or I would provide more info for you. The first link seems to have what you need. You could always go measure too.
