No Shipping and willing to meet within reasonable distance in Northeast Florida. $350 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Could be the brake booster... had mine replaced at 20,000 miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My best guess is the height. The amount off road has been limited and I really didn’t push the truck to hard anytime( I’m sure the full cycling of the suspension though did play a part). With the 2” in front you can look at your suspension and see the ball joint angle and it’s not going where it was stock. Will it always cause premature wear, maybe but it’s really how you drive and what your using your truck for. If it’s going to be a pavement queen then I’m sure they could last a lot longer than mine did. After getting the cognito’s though I could immediately see the angles improve along with the functionality with more allowable suspension movement especially off-road. The seat of your pants feel is that the tires really want to stay on the road over bumps so more of a lack of rebound. For me on and off road it rides better, softer and much more compliant than stock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have Fox 2.0 all around my Sierra and have had them for approx 20k. I had the Ranchos and the rebound of those shocks convinced me to change. I wanted to level and felt the safest way on the truck is with an adjustable suspension. For me it was a night and day difference. The rebound is much better and the wheels stay planted over bumps. I also noticed better response at highway speeds and a lot less nose dive in turns and braking. For me it was worth the price of admission. I considered the bilsteins but I would have had them maxed out in height which I have heard provides a rougher ride. My truck does go off road but is also my daily driver so the upgrade to a suspension that could take more abuse made sense for me. If I had to do it over again I would have gone straight to the 2.5, King, etc route only because I smoked my stock UCA ball joints after 20k and just replaced to Cognito which I was ultimately was trying to avoid with just the Fox 2.0.

  6. I went the other way and got rid of a black 15 SS 6 speed for my GMC 6.2. The SS is a cool ride and a lot of fun but does have its quirks. The 6 speed are unicorns at this point and the auto still solid. I would consider the charger SRT if I was in your shoes only because of the parts availability. Back in 2016 my SS needed a new dash due to a defect. The dealership torn it apart assuming that the part quick to source. Took them over 30 days to get car back to me. In that time they fortunately had a loaner (Silverado) for me to drive and the rest is history. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. They are actually Method NV 17 x 8.5 (0 offset) with Toyo 285/70/17 I really like them and different than most trucks I see here in Florida. Everyone seems to want 20’s but if you take it off road the lower profile tire and more exposed rims get beat up. I didn’t want to lift the truck but wanted it leveled so I did it the proper way with suspension. I have the Fox 2.0 and just added cognito UCA’s because my stock ball joints were trashed.

  8. Correct, I thought you had it upside down as mine had alittle big of a taper to it in the center. Right at the seam is where I cut so just above your tape line in your pic and kept it the same depth all the way around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I cut it right at the seam so alittle below your tap line. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Removed it from the truck then taped it off and cut it with a dremel. It’s pretty soft plastic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The asymmetrical wheel openings look horrible to me... I’m sure it will a challenge to figure out that geometry with aftermarket wheels and tires as well. I chose the GMC over the bow tie because of appearance for my 16 but have to say the Chevy looks better in the new body style. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I didn’t like the look with it completely off so I cut it in half. Best of both worlds. Still has the finished look but isn’t dragging on the ground like the stock one looks. I just took it off and cut it along the seam and reinstalled. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have the 2.0 all around and haven’t had any issues with the rears. I keep the leafs coated with Fluid Film and that keeps them quite. I must have the older version with the aluminum top hats instead of nylon. Per Fox the coil will rub against the inner part of the top hat which is causing the creak. (Front coilovers). The fix is to replace to nylon which they just sent me for free but the kicker is that the coilover needs to be removed, taken apart then reinstalled. I don’t have or want to mess with a spring compressor so I’ll just take it back to Sun Tire to change them out. When it’s time to replace the UCA”s I will be upgrading to Cognito and having Extreme Truck do the work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Glad you got it figured out and have heard nothing but great things about Extreme Trucks in Jax. I just got my top hats from Fox so hopefully they resolve my creak issues... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m in Jax too and had mine installed at Sun Tire on Racetrack Rd. Definitely recommend them and was only 200 with the alignment. Going back there when I have to replace the top hats (nylon vs the aluminum ones I have) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
