  1. cant speak to spacers but i run 33x12.5 on my TB with an offset. my wheels stivck out about an inch and i have no rubbing issues
  2. i have the same issue with my bakflip cover. honestly it hasn't bothered me enough to try to "fix" it
  3. i had the swing cases on my 2015...biggest issue i remember is that they block the bed lights...also if u had a cover on the bed the cases didnt swing out enough to clear the cover. they are great and the ease of removing them was nice but it also meant if for some reason my cover was rolled out and secured they were open to theft unless they were locked. the cases were a nice option for things like rope and straps but they they did have their hinderances at times as i mentioned. i did not get them for my 2019 as i find the truck hs plenty of other areas to store the same items like under the rear set and inside the rear seat storages areas.
  4. any qualified tinter will color match the back to the front. im pretty sure tinting the front windshield is illegal in most if not all states. personally i dont find it necessary given that your riding higher than most other vehicles. headlights dont shine in my eyes and looking in my vehicle isnt really common from the front anyway. tinting the other windows will aid in the overall heat aspect. not sure what you mean by matching the paint or having issues with electronics.
  5. i believe he said hes gone thru 20%....which seems reasonable for 13000 miles. im in the same ballpark with 10000 miles. without factoring in driving habits and paths traveled it seems normal. I have larger wheels, heavier tires, i tow occasionally. I look at the information as a helpful guideline rather than something i worry about. brake pads like tires are going to need to be changed eventually. beats the old days with my nissan armada when i was having pads and rotors changed every 15,000 miles cause nissan didnt put adequate size brakes for the size of the truck.
  6. i get it from time to time...seems to happen when i do like others stated above...funny thing is i kinda like it and wish it was . a view option...i feel like it gives a greater field of view.
  7. next time you bring it in...drive it thru the show room floor....tell them you dont know what the problem was and it appears to be intermitten....I HATE when the demeanor of the dealership changes after you take delivery. I havent been back to the dealer i bought my truck from for that very reason. as i said previously these are issues to the over all perfomance and function of the vehicle, not small glitches.
  8. wow i didnt realize the front grill and headlights were so different on a custom vs. the LT
  9. when i had mine match tinted the installer threw a meter on it to confirm the level to match.
  10. i have 20s with 33 inch tires on my LT TB...no issues, trimming or rubbing
  11. aside from my boat i also tow a 6x12 v nose enclosed trailer, with the extra head room as well. my truck is 5.3. Felt fine and one trip i went on a winding steep hill with no issue at all. back when i has my 2015 i towed a tracked skid steer and trailer just fine. in some conversations i had with some dealers over the years they told me they have seen a lot of notorious 2500 customers stepping down to a 1500 cause the increase towing abilities and the better day to day driving.
  12. here in CT a front plate is required so the dealers install them to comply with law...with that being said...i removed the plate and the bracket as soon as i got home from picking up the truck. I would ABSOLUTELY have the dealer do it its required. its no different then any other legally required item. if u screw the bumper on the 50k truck thats on you., if they screw it up its on them....BIG difference.
  13. anyone else feel the 19s tow better ?...im coming from a 15 and i towed my boat the other night and had to remind myself it was there a few times.
