  1. I've read a bunch of different posts on transmission issues and the like, but I'm simply looking to do a fluid and filter change. My truck is a 2015, 5.3, 6 speed - I'm assuming it's the 6L80, is that right? I know it takes Dex VI, just not sure how much. 75k, and it's not been changed yet. Plan on doing both diffs, transfer case, and transmission. I've got Mobil 1 75/90 for both diffs. I know I need 2 qts of Dex VI for the transfer case, just not sure how much for a fluid/filter change for the transmission. I'm assuming synthetic is preferred for the transmission and transfer case?
  2. 265/70r18 pics

    I'm running the same size, but I did a 1.5" level shortly after getting the truck, with no difference in ride quality over non-leveled. After the stock Goodyears wore out, I replaced them w/ Cooper Discoverers in 276/65R18. Only a couple of pounds heavier than stock, so very little hit to gas mileage, and still rides good. WORLD of difference in traction on wet roads and light mud over the stock tires.
  3. No offense taken. I appreciate other's peoples input, even when it's because of my ignorance. I WILL say that I could have SWORN that I read that they were a standard replacement for regular halogen headlights. That's the only reason I bought them. Now I feel like a complete idiot. I admit it - I f'ed up. I like to think I'm pretty good about this kind of thing, but not this time. Allow me to bow my head in shame for a minute... You guys are right, they are whiter than the SilverStars, but not the same distance. Well, not to figure out what to do. Maybe I can find a set of projectors somewhere that won't break the bank...
  4. Nope, stock halogen housings. These particular bulbs are made for the non-projector headlights.
  5. Tire recommendation

    Cooper Discoverers have been fantastic for me (and others here, that's how I found out!). Slightly different size than what you're looking for though. I'm running 275/65R18.
  6. One thing I did notice - you could actually rotate the LED within the mounting flange (the part with the 3 tabs that lines up to the headlight housing) after the flange was attached to the headlight housing. I rotated mine so that the LEDs are at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. Seemed the give the best light pattern. Do that before you put the caps back on. Ask me how I know...
  7. Yep, surprisingly. They came with the input adapters (the large gold boxes in the 2nd picture of post #4) which fit inside the stock housing. Not sure that I needed them, but I also ordered the OPTIONAL DRL ANTI-FLICKER LINKS, the 2 extra harnesses in the same post. Hooked them all up, and they all fit inside with room to put the cover back on. Nothing sticking outside.
  8. Yeah, driving into work this morning, you could really notice the difference, even over the SilverStars. Glad I put them in.
  9. One LED in and one halogen. Quite the color and brightness difference. Another pic w/ the Morimoto LED fog lights on as well. All of the pieces fit inside the stock headlight with room to spare, and the stock cover fits over the bulb as well. Funny hearing the fan running on the bulbs. You only hear it when the headlights are on and the truck's not running. Color of both the LED headlight and fog are almost exactly the same. Now to go aim them...
  10. 14's and 15's, with the halogen headlights, are a royal pain in the keister to change the bulbs on the passenger side. Not so bad on the drivers side though. I choose to remove the air box so I could get my big mitts in there easier to change out the passenger side bulb.
  11. Well, my LEDs arrived yesterday. Now to go and install them...
  12. Pulled mine off. MAYBE a .5mpg loss. Maybe. I like the look of it much better w/o the spoiler.
  13. Anybody use these or have any tips for these? I've got them being delivered this week. Supposed to work well in the regular (non-projector) style headlights that my Silverado has. Getting tired of changing the Silverstar bulbs every year, and a little extra light never hurt. LINK
  14. You and me both. If I still have a need need a truck when my '15 dies, then it's on to a used one for me. Not even a matter of whether I can afford it or not, but a matter if I WANT to, and nope. Not happening. Don't want to spend that much on any new vehicle.
