  1. I need new tires for my truck and was wondering what is the largest tire size I could fit on the basic 17" steel rims without having rubbing issues. the stock size is 255/70r17 and was looking at getting either 255/75r17's or 285/70r17's but I am concerned the 285's will rub The tires I am planning on getting are Continental Terrain Contact A/T's. Have you guys had good luck with them? They seem to be highly rated several places and look like they are a good balance between a highway and a true off road tire.
  2. Light bars

    I have a auxbeam lightbar behind my grill it has been great and cost about $200, here is a link to a post with pictures
  3. Mechanical or electric fan

    As far as I know all 2014+ Sierras and Silverados 1500s have electric fans, I believe the 2500s and 3500s with gas engines also have electric fans. I think the only trucks with mechanical fans still are 2500s and 3500s with Duramax diesels. As far as telling by looking a mechanical fan will have a pulley and run off the engine accessory belt electric fans will be mounted to the radiator and have no direct connection with the engine.
  4. My truck has the i03 4in screen and I am looking to add a backup camera. I have found conflicting awnsers on several sites as to what must be done. Some places say you have to upgrade to an io4. Has anyone here added a backup camera to their io3 system without upgrading to a io4 system? Sent from my LG-G710 using Tapatalk
  5. $15 oil chg REBATE

    They have a rebate for $10 off engine air filters and cabin air filters as well that also doubles to $20 if you use a GM credit card. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah my guess is that it is just a bad crimp, there is no residue further up the rubber line and no residue on the hard line where it enters the block so the crimp is the only place I can figure it is leaking. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

  8. Yesterday I noticed a leak in what I believe is the engine oil cooler line on my truck, It looks like the crimp is failing where the hard line is crimped to the rubber hose. Has anyone else had issues with this? currently it just looks like a very slow leak so I am not very worried but I will address it when I get a chance. The truck was purchased in Nov 14 and currently has 28000mi My initial 3 year warranty has expired but I have an extended warranty to 5 years 50000mi
  9. I'm single and all my family members are afraid of driving a truck so no one else drives mine. With my luck though, I tend to be on the opposite end and get hit by others. Thankfully the last 2 incidents have done no real damage. The most recent was last weekend I had someone hit my truck while backing out of a parking spot. Thankfully for me it did nothing more than scuff the plastic on my bumper step. The other persons car did not fair so well... Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  10. 2018 remote start

    If your dealer will install for $150 I would have them do it. I bought the kit and installed it myself and no dealer in my area would program it for less than $100. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  11. Kansans Sound Off!

    Another Kansan here, I'm from the KC area.
  12. It sounds like the ground wire connection in the cab is still not completely connected or the ground for the hood latch is not connected to the frame well enough I would check both of those along with the hood latch connector and then try to clear the codes.
  13. remote start add on

    I installed remote start on my truck, I believe that as long a you have remote locks already the remote start kit will work. Be aware though you will have to have the bcm and fobs programmed by the dealership. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  14. Here is my low profile Camlocker, its a excellent box especially since I paid $150 for it. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
