  1. Look into Power Stop brakes. I can't speak for them but a lot of people are using the them. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  2. Wilwood front break kit 140-9789-R (slotted rotors with red calipers) Wilwood rear brake kit 140-9407-R (slotted rotors with red calipers) $2250 per axle and $250 for stainless brake lines so $4750 plus fluid, labor, and sales tax.

    My flares are bushwacker. To get the smooth finish they only come in raw plastic. I had to get them painted and I let the shop that did my lift install them. If you get the ones that have the bolt on look you can get them pre-painted in certain colors. As for the lift I've always understood any leveling kit above 2.25 will stress the suspension too much. To go higher than that you'll need a true lift. Mine is a 4 inch BDS but there are plenty of cheaper options. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

    The suspension rides great and handles well. There is some squeak in the rear leaf springs when going over speed bumps but not under normal driving. They tried to unpack and grease them twice with no luck. It's not a big deal as it's only over larger bumps like speed bumps. Obviously the brakes aren't part of the suspension but my truck weighs 6580lbs (3600) on the so the stopping power is nice to have and the nose of the truck doesn't drop no matter how hard of a stop I make. There are much cheaper brake upgrades out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  5. Check out MVI. He offers the OE intelihaul system as well as another system as well. He has tons of options for HMI unlocks and entertainment systems. Anthony is the name. Great to work with.

  6. Which brakes to buy...

    I've got Wilwood slotted (not drilled) on all 4 corners. Very pricey but extremely effective. I also used stainless brake lines and performance fluid. We're talking $5k instead of $500 though.

  7. Running boards finish

    Mine chipped horribly due to someone not adjusting the arms of the lifts for regular maintenance. I eventually had them sprayed in bed liner and I think they look great. Cost me about $200 plus tax. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  8. I'm running the BDS 4.5 lift with Fox shocks and BDS rear springs. I'm also running. 34 inch high ridge grapplers (295/60/20). It rides great. Also upgraded to Wilwood brakes all the way around so she stops on a dime. See my build thread for more info. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

    I like the tires. They are the most aggressive I've ever had and fuel mileage took a hit with the tires and lift but they ride well. They are a lot more square than any other tire I've had which I notice with low speed steering but at higher speeds I don't notice it. I think it's because the wheels lean when you turn so you're riding on the corner of the tire a little more. I've always heard 22's ride stiffer because there is less sidewall but mine are 20's so I'm not speaking from experience. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  11. Adding a Dual Battery

    I have an ACR. Batteries are isolated when voltage is out of range. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  12. If you have the Bose system there is definitely no room under the console. If you don't have the Bose sub then it will very likely fit and it's pretty easy to get to. The other option is to put it in the storage area of the console. If you pull the rubber mat out there is a panel that can be unscrewed. I pulled that panel and drilled a hole to run some wiring to connect to some additional electronics I got from MVI. I also mounted an HMI/USB connector in that panel. Running the wires through that panel and through the console to the dash can be done without too much trouble particularly if you feed them out the lower side towards your foot well then tuck them back under the console once everything is connected. I've done this multiple times. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  13. Adding a Dual Battery

    If you just want the higher amp alternator for the dual setup I can attest you don't need it. The stock will maintain them both no problem. If you need it for another purpose please report your findings. I've had a dealer tell me changing the alternator required programming. I don't know that I believe them but with these trucks it wouldn't surprise me. On a side note I can also attest that when you accidentally run your primary battery too low to crank your truck the secondary will definitely do the job. Linked mine via the push button on my ACR and she cranked right up! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.
