i don't know - i think a lot has to do with what you are using your truck for. i had a 7.5" rough country lift put in over 3 years ago and have had no issues at all. now, with that being said, my truck is pretty much a street queen (ha!). if my plan was to go crazy off roading then i'd likely gone a different route. also - to the question in the original post.... my lift/tire guys said that 37s would not fit with my lift, so i have 35s
i got my first roll up cover in 1997 for my '89 chevy truck. i still own that truck and i have never lost anything out of the box (and the tailgate doesn't even lock). i got my '14 silverado in 2016 and immediately put a roll up cover on it (truxedo) and have had no problems at all
i bought my first truck (an 89 chev) in 1997 and immediately put a soft cover on it. it was the only vehicle i drove for 19 years. not once was the cover ever damaged or anything ever taken from the back of my truck. in 2016 i bought my second truck (a 14 silverado) and like my '89 i immediately put a soft cover on it too (truxedo truxport toneau cover). like my other truck - so far absolutely no issues with damage to the cover or stuff getting stolen out of the box.
had to buy a new battery today for my '14. not exactly what i was planning my next post in the thread to be - ha! **oh... and what a pain to get the battery out - man oh man. i guess i'm just used to my old '89... disconnect the positive and negative wires from the battery, lots of room to get a good grip on the battery and out it comes. not so with the 14!
cool topic!! lots of changes for my truck.... and not just on the outside... the day i brought it home: and now: the interior has also changed a bunch. from a totally stock LTZ interior to this... change LEDs in dash and added inlays added lots of blue interior lights: added blue tube lighting inside the cup holder: changed all illuminated buttons inside the truck from stock white to blue: and still one of my favourite things i did was make my bed divider (i just love this thing!): the list of mods is long - lots of details and a bunch of 'how to' posts in my build thread (link below in my sig)
Hey, man! Where did you get that bed divider? I can't tell if it's handmade or if you bought it but I can't find it anywhere! It's awesome!
thanks!! it's hand made
this will take you to what i did.... bed divider
i have a bunch of oznium bolts. i don't think there is enough room (depth) for the back of the bolt on the back side of the grommet. that cavity is not very deep. i was going to use bolts on my truck but after putting one in the cavity behind the grommet it sure looked like the bolt was too long.
