  1. What did you use for lubricant? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did 2” bora spacer on my 6” BDS lift and you really can’t tell. I would spend money and get a quality spacer. Last thing you want is wheels falling off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Details are in signature. Best decision I ever made was ripping that ... Rough Country lift off my truck. If you’re going to lift make sure you do it right first time. Don’t be like me and spend over $8000 fixing your mistake. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Did you have to change screen? Or was it just HMI update? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. He’s full of crap. I’m running 18x9 with 35x12.50 and I had issues. I hope you find solution. I ate the price. It was about $3500 to put RC on with my tires etc. I paid another $4k at another shop to toss it in trash and go BDS. My wife still reminds me of my stupidity. She likes to remind me I put a $999 lift on a $50k truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Good luck. I went through same crap with RC 6” lift that everyone claimed “oh no never had that issue. Blah blah.” I ate up 2 control arms and my traction control would never shut up making a granny turn from light. I have LTZ Z71 with aluminum arms. I got same response from RC. I ripped that crap out and put BDS lift in. Best damn decision of my life. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I checked cables and everything was solid. It’s strange as heck. Everything stayed powered; it was like I turned key down 1. I drove this morning for about 30 mins and nothing happened. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Had the weirdest thing happen. Wife and I were pulling into garage my truck just shut off. Everything was still powered but engine just cut as if turned key. I pulled back out and drove around, nothing happened again. Has anyone ever experienced something like that? Literally asking myself if Casper turned my key to mess with me LOL.

  9. Can’t really compare as I had 2.0 with level then my RC 6”. That lift was straight junk. I replaced it with this and it’s like riding a cloud. Love it. It’s 6” coilover package from BDS. http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma=5&mo=1&ty=98&yr=2014-2018 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hm, maybe I suppose. Eh it’s the past. I’m in better spot now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
