  1. Rental Car

    When my dealership runs out of loaners, they send folks over using their shuttle to a nearby Enterprise Car Rental. I have to give Enterprise a CC and they put a $50 pre-auth but when I return it, they remove it and bill the dealership.
  2. 2016 Silverado Not Starting

    Have them check the grounds. When I had a body lift installed on my 2015, it ran fine from the shop where installed back to my work. Then when leaving for work, it started but after 1000ft or so, it started stuttering, then all the warning lights lit up and stalled. It let me start a few times but warning lights were flashing; then it died. Dealer found one of the ground straps came loose and needed lengthening. I had them call the shop that did the lift and they paid the dealer for the bill.
  3. Drawing time for some really cool stuff 2018

    WooHoo! Thank you Nick! PM sent.
  4. Rear sway Bar

    I have the Hellwig 7886 on my 2018 Sierra 1500. Hellwig recommended it for any lifts between 3" - 6". I had their 7735 on my 2015 but it had a 2" kit.
  5. They wrapped them with the bumpers in place. I may have got a great deal as I think I was their first customer with a late model GM to get the bumpers wrapped. It took them several hours to complete the job so they may have underestimated the work required when they gave me the quote over the phone.
  6. I had Performance Tint in Livonia do the wrap and front windows tint. If I recall, I think the wrap for both bumpers ran around $300. They did a great job of wrapping them. I was going to have Notorious Tintz in Livonia do the tint and wrap but they were nearly $200-300 more for the wrap. The wrap has held up better than expected. I've put over 15k on it since the wrap and there may only be a couple of slightly larger than pin head spots where rocks hit it and exposed the chrome underneath. I drive mostly highway and surprised how well it has held up. It goes through automated car washes nearly weekly and see no signs of peeling.
  7. I have a Superlift 3.5" kit on my 2018. It comes with new UCA with MOOG ball joints, strut spacers,spacers to drop the diff, 2" rear blocks, and new rear shocks.
  8. Sierra as a Daily Driver

    I drive 70-80 miles one-way for work; mostly highway. When I accepted the job, I was driving a 2015 Sierra on a lease. Fortunately, they let me do an early turn-in so I financed an 2018 Sierra so I could put on the mileage my job required. I did not even consider a smaller vehicle. If your financial situation allows you to spend extra on fuel and you love your truck, I would keep it. Just my opinion...

    Thank you for the chance!
  10. When I had my 2015 Sierra and a body lift installed, mine did the same thing. When the dealership diagnosed it, they discovered one of the ground straps not properly connected.
  11. Superlift 3.5 Pics and opinions

    There is a pic in one of the other threads. I believe you had commented on it a while back during your search for a lift or level. I can post a pic if you do not recall it. The Superlift rear shocks seem fine for on-road use. I do not go off-road so not sure how they will hold up. I can't really compare the factory rears to these as I had the kit installed after I put just a few hundred miles on the truck. I picked this kit as I did not see any negative issues from actual owners.
  12. Superlift 3.5 Pics and opinions

    Still love mine. I have a tad over 14k miles on it with no issues and hoping it stays that way.
  13. Prices of the vehicles keep going up and they keep taking features away or charge for them. I was surprised too when I bought my 2018 earlier this year and discovered they only give you 2 free oil changes/tire rotations vs the 4 and charging for the remote access. I don't understand why they charge for the Onstar emergency service. If a company has the technology to provide emergency services if an accident is detected or locating your vehicle if stolen/carjacked; one should not have to pay extra or it should just be wrapped into price of vehicle like seat belts. I have heard from friends where their elderly parents could not afford that service and when they call Onstar to complain, they offer them a discounted rate. There are some elderly folks out there that do not have cell phones and this service could be a lifesaver for them.
  14. Since you have the I3, reach out to Lew at diablewtune.com as mentioned above. You should be able to change tire size in the unit. I used to run the canned Diablo 91/93 tunes and finally decided to have him do a custom tune for my 2018. The difference is night and day between the canned tune and custom one.
  15. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    I had the 2" BDS leveling kit on my old 2015 lease with a Zone body lift. I never experienced any issues with the kit although I only put 30k miles on it. When I turned it in, there were no issues either with the dealer nor GM.
