I am another user of DR Color Chip. My truck is onyx black and is 90% highway driven. Color match is perfect. Their kits seem to do a decent job of filling in chips. I purchased the basic kit; paint, solution, 2 or 3 brushes, glove, microfiber towel.
Here's a recent thread of an install of sun roof and rear sliding window. https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/228915-upgraded-my-2017-gmc-sierra-slt-with-a-denali-grill-sunroof-and-a-rear-sliding-window/?tab=comments#comment-2310354
That is probably decent payments. You will see flyers advertising low lease payments for promos and are usually short term and low mileage. If you were to finance for 60 months at 0%, payments would be $700ish for $42.5k.
In my experience, they are not the same. In my 2018 GMC, it prefers Sunoco 93. I do have a Diablew 93 tune but even before it, my engine preferred Sunoco gas. If I run on Mobil/Exxon 93, I notice black carbon deposits on my tailpipe but with Sunoco, it does not do it. I had an old '06 Ridgeline. It preferred Shell gas. If I ran Speedway(probably not top tier), my engine light would always come on.
My 2018 CC w/ 5.3 w/ 6sp trans does the same at various intervals. Does not seem to matter if at idle or on highway. Voltmeter also will dip low too but never had any warning lights/messages. I have nearly 30k miles on mine now.
I will try to get some pics later. Not saying this is the 'best' 3.5" leveling kit but it seemed reasonably priced, didn't have as many negative reviews as the Rough Country, allows use of factory wheels without needing spacers, comes with skid plate and rear shocks, and has lifetime warranty. Time will tell how well the kit will hold up. Not too worried about billet aluminum diff spacers vs steel.
My parts were also coated/painted. The only parts raw were the rear blocks and the diff drop spacers which were aluminum I believe. UCA's, u-bolts, strut spacers and whatever else were all black.
I've had the Rough Country hard tri-fold on for about a year with no issues but I would most likely not purchase another one due to the previous comments and it only has 4 clamping points at each corner. I was worried as I drive nearly 150 miles a day on highway for work and thought it would fly off. Fortunately it has held tight.
I've used: Harold's Frame Shop in Novi, Not sure if they will do the Bilsteins but they do quite a few leveling kit installs or used to as it been a couple years since I used them. Vehicle Accessories in Clarkston. Total Car Care in Livonia.
I also have the Superlift 3.5" kit on my 2018 CCSB. I cannot tell too much of a difference in ride stiffness as mine has the factory 20" wheels/tires which seem to ride rougher than the 18". I have over 20k miles with the kit installed. Mine came with Superlift rear shocks. Their tech support said this lift with their UCA's is at it's max and if you went with the Billsteins up front; to leave them a the 0" setting.
It was my understanding too that the Predator could not load custom tunes but it looks like their newer model may. When I was in the market, Diablo recommended the InTune for what I wanted and I thought at that time, it could not handle custom tunes. When I posted earlier, someone said it could, so I revised my post. This link from Diablo shows a comparison chart. The Predator P2 shows it can handle CMR custom tunes but lacks many other features such as "spark/fuel/tuning". Diablo matrix comparing Predator P2, InTune, Trinity
