  1. Tailgate LED light bars

    If you were curious here is the Opt7 triple line. I unfortunately don’t like delay so I’m sending it back to Amazon. My factory signals will flash one cycle before bar picks up and starts flashing. https://imgur.com/a/G8gtjl7 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks again. What did the gears run? I got the gears from East Coast Gear Supply; cost me $900 and then the labor was $800 from guy who did my BDS lift install.

    It's more of leaf squeak; I hear them flex. I absolutely LOVE the 4.10 gears and yes I have the 5.3L with 6 speed -- before I put the gears in (had the lift done with 35's) she was getting 12mpg everywhere, even on highway and was just a plain dog when trying to get out of the way. When I installed the 4.10's it was like I was back in my stock height truck. She gets 15mpg all the time and can get up to 18mpg if I'm on highway for long distance. She has plenty of power when I need to get out of the way. All in all, I enjoy it. I did it because I plan to keep truck long term and I wanted the transmission to be as efficient as possible. if I had the 8 speed and the money I would probably do it anyways. I know there's 2 more gears in there but I would be worried about hit on transmission. It's why I ripped out the RC lift and got something better -- everything I do is for long term. Wife said I can't get another truck for 10 years LOL.

    I absolutely love it! She's about to go in the shop to get retorqued after the first 1500 miles. On and off road is great; though I haven't done any serious off road because it needs initial re-torque (no baja jumping.) However I love it compared to the crap Rough Country 6" lift I had on previously.
 The rear leafs are completely replacement to your factory leaf -- they are NICE however noisy. At 1500 miles they haven't broken in yet so on big hits like speed bumps you will hear the rear end. I'm told they take hot minute to break in and then they'll stop making noise--but I'll take it over the massive 5" block you usually have back there. They do feel much better.
 Here is photo yesterday of me hauling a bunch of furniture to a vacation rental house my wife and I acquired. She handled the load like a champ! It's 6x12' Utility trailer loaded up with a ton of furniture (don't have exact weight.) Pulled it with 8" drop receiver. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Tailgate LED light bars

    I decided to bite bullet and get the triple line from Opt7 -- I like the look of that solid line of red versus my dotted red I have now. I wonder how much of a pain it'll be removing the old one with the 3M double sided tape.

    Lift has been going well for me since I swapped from RC to BDS. The only issue I have right now is my rear end is noisy with the BDS leaf springs. You can jump up and down on bumper and it’ll squeak. I’m going by shop Monday to get it looked at. It’s time for 1500 mile torque post installation. Overall I’m still happy!

  10. 4.11 gears

    Here is my drive to Orlando today. When I got there my actual mileage was about 17.1 for 2-1/2 hours on highway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This was my run to Orlando. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I love my Yukon’s. Got them from East Coast Gear. Fixing to take girl on run to Orlando shortly. I love lift with 4.10–she just rides amazing. Eager to hear how your 4.56 come out bud! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m guessing you went Yukon based on break in? I love my Yukon gears. They stank for a bit tho when you heat me up good but once broken in-OMG. I didn’t go as big tho; 4.10 for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It stayed. The 2.0 coils I used on 6” RC and we tweaked them back down to 1” or whatever it is from factory. It was from factory that I learned they had to be raised so truck would level. When I moved to BDS I ended up with all new gear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Better than Rancho for sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
