  1. Long story short. UCA ball joints were shot on Christmas Eve. Close to 11k mark of having lift on. I should not replacing my UCA already; even if I was raptor jumping sand dunes. Knuckles are crap; every time I made left hand granny turn the stabilitrac went off. I have friend in town with exact same lift and he had exact same issues. If you turn wheels hard either way you roll over the tire edge (turn out toe or whatever is shit.) Rattled and looseness all over place. My buddies 16 BDS rode way better than mine. 3 different alignments and companies and still couldn’t get front to track right. She would sway even after the ball joint repair. I had fox 2.0 coilovers and rear fox 2.0’s so I know roughness wasn’t the shocks and coils. I’m sure others have fine experiences. I know I’ve seen them. But I for one will never give them my money. It was my one regret considering I spent $47k for my truck in 2015. Each their own. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 11k miles on my 6” Rough Country....until yesterday when I dropped the truck off to have that crap thrown in a dumpster. I will never own an RC kit again. I have a 6” BDS being install right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    $2000 is good -- I paid $900 for my Yukon gears and $800 installed. I had 3.42 gears like you.

    6” with 35’s I got 12mpg period. I changed the gears to 4.10 and now I get 15mpg period. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am excited! Truck was dropped off today to replace the RC 6” with a BDS 6”, full coilovers with reservoirs, and BDS rear leaf springs. I pick it back up next Monday because I have to go out of town. SO EXCITED!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have a 6” lift with 35” tires and I park in my garage which has a 7’ opening. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Is anyone having issue with the feed no longer showing on main section of app? All I get now is the GM trucks logo and bunch of buttons to forum categories. It used to show the unread feed from GM trucks. Now I have to go into forum and then to discussions to see what is happening. iPhone XS Max with latest version of Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah 22mpg—jeez. I do 16mpg period with 6”, 35’s, 4.10 gears, and 93 octane tuned on 5.3L. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I didn’t have a lot of choice or time—it was day before Christmas. I needed to take my truck on a long distance trip. If I recall the UCA were made by Precision (OEM). I will consider aftermarket next time I need them. I was just surprised that they were already toast. Truck hit 50k miles; lift has only about 8k miles on it. Before that it was level kit and E-rated 275’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. OK GUYS. I take back most of what I said. It’s still cheap lift imo by sheer cost. HOWEVER! It turns out both my ball joints were shot and that was contributing to all the crap up front I was not liking. I finally had it and took truck back to shop to either figure it out or rip the crap out. They called me and said they did a shake down and found lots of play in joints. I had them replaced and now she drives great and feels stable. I had 50,200 miles on clock and replaced both UCA’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    50k miles and I just installed new UCA's -- my ball joints were shot. I'm pretty certain it was the long miles with level kit and E-Rated tires that chewed them up.
  12. I traded the piece of shit for a Hummer. I get better gas mileage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Tailgate LED light bars

    Bingo. I was trying to think if that would be large enough. LOL. You the man! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Tailgate LED light bars

    Oh snap; I was thinking of that crappy $10 one by CURT that is just a long freaking cable. My bad. I'm thinking -- I don't know if parts store would have any type of malen crimp on that would be large enough to lock into the female side. If it was me I would probably get a 5 pin plug replacement and cut the wires on LED light bar; re-solder it myself into a 5 pin with reverse tied in. Maybe someone else has trick for you.

    You got the triple line from Opt7 I assume? Snooping your build thread. Is it lagged? I heard that the triple line will lag due to controller that activates LED's, sequentials, etc.
