  1. Yep; I couldn’t hear it with the windows up. I didn’t tie the loose feeling to it either. Thought it was just the truck being a brick in wind. Could have been worse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. HAHAHHAHAHHA! I called the shop today and they were like “what?” Even they don’t believe that it has to be re-torqued every 3000 miles AFTER the initial re-torque. They had no answer as to why the 4 U-bolts on each side came loose. I’m be glad when new year comes and I rip this crap out. I should have spent the money and went with BDS.

  3. I’m serious. Am I smoking? I have never had to torque a lift every 3k miles. Even jumping the damn thing. This is new to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I rather drive down road and have my wheels fall off. RC must be the that new kind of shit. I’ve never seen owned a lift kit that requires me to torque it every 3000 miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I also just looked in the install guide and noticed that RC is wanting you to re-torque every 3000 miles. That's a first for me.
  6. I learned a good lesson. If your truck feels odd, check it out! Couple weeks ago I went on a 300mi trip. I noticed the truck felt odd; rear was loose, vibrating, jarring, etc. This week I took a 60 mile trip to GA and noticed the same thing. In town she felt ok at 40-45 which is most of my driving—I work from home most of the time so I rarely leave beach. I figured it was the fact I have 6 inch lift with 35’s and frankly the truck is a brick. Last night it’s nice out and we have windows down driving home. I keep hearing this damn rattle every time I hit a bump. When we got home I had the wife drive up our driveway. It was enough of hit to make the rattle so I could pinpoint location. I crawl under the truck and to my surprise. The U-bolts to my leafs and blocks are loose and rattling by hand. I torqued them back down but it has me concerned now. I did take the truck to the sho after 2500 miles for them to re-torque everything as required. I have had lifts on previous trucks and I never found myself having to torque anything after the initial install and the 2500mi checkin/re-torque. I’ll be monitoring it but just another check mark on my list of personal reasons why I don’t like this RC lift. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You buy a extended jack and carry it with you. You could use blocks of wood if needed but I wouldn’t trust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. BlueTopaz14’s truck build!

    Looks good. I thought about that instead of bolt on looking flares. I like how it flows and looks factory. How’s the quality of fiber? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Tapatalk images?

    Yep. I have no insert image or video where it used to be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I can’t seem to add images to posts anymore. Is this a Tapatalk issue or GM forum issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’ve been looking at Ram Rebel but can’t pull trigger for 2 reasons. 1. Wife said no and would murder me. 2. It’s a Ram. I agree the sound is different. Mine occurs only at load on an incline—bizarre as hell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. You should have 3.42 with that. If you do gears hit up East Coast Gear Supply. I got my Yukon kit for $900 shipped. Guys were awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Looks great! I have same truck except 2015 and Fox coil overs. If you can I would re-gear it to 4.10s. It made a huge difference in driving. I was getting about 10-11 with the lift and 35’s. Truck took hot minute to get moving well—have LTZ so I had the 3.42 rear gears. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m sad to report it’s still there and a tune doesn’t matter. I thought it was resolved with 93 octane but apparently it just moved to different RPM range. I took a 300 miles trip today and I discovered with my gearing to 4.10s and a 93 octane from Diablew the noise now occurs on load at around 2100rpms which is my OD at 80mph. It used to be around 1600 rpms before I lifted the truck and changed gears to 4.10. Not sure what it is at this point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Is your truck tuned? By who? I got mine to stop with 93. I could never hear or produce it when I was stock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
