  1. I got new wheels and tires installed today. 20x9 Level 8 Trackers with 275/60R20 Pathfinder AT tires.
  2. I second that question. Also, did you happen to snap a picture with the chrome skid plate removed? I’m interested to see what it would look like if I just took it off.
  3. Yeah...after seeing how Platsti Dip held up in the interior of my Jeep I’m in no hurry to put on the outside of anything.
  4. That’s what I’d like, but I don’t like that price. I need to see if somebody locally would want to trade for my chrome one. I also like your bowtie on the grille. Did you buy that? Plasti Dip?
  5. You happen to have a photo of what it looks like with just the chrome piece removed? I’ve considered trying that, but worry I wouldn’t be able to get it back on if it looked like garbage. It’s the only thing I don’t like about the front of my truck.
  6. I honestly can’t fathom ever actually buying a set of factory wheels, but I prefer the all black look.
  7. This gets my vote. I prefer darker colors (even though my truck is white...never thought I’d like a white truck). I’d love to see some flat colors offered like Toyota and Ford have done.
  8. In general I think any chrome is too much. The only chrome on my truck is the bumper filler and the outline of the bow tie on the grille, and I’m looking for ways to get rid of those. With that said, I think the Denali is well done. It’s a lot of chrome, but the design of it still looks tasteful. Usually chrome looks cheap to me, but the Denali manages to make it look upscale. I likely wouldn’t buy a Denali because that entails paying for a bunch of stuff I don’t care about, but I do think they’re good looking trucks.
  9. I’ve had that happen as well. I was able to reuse the plastic retaining thingamajigger, but I imagine it’ll require a bolt at some point.
  10. I got my Predator 2 in today and hooked it up to my 2016 5.3L Z71. I used the 87 octane tune and increased the throttle boost by 10%...man, what a difference. I don’t know that there is a noticeable increase in power, but the throttle response is worlds better. Before I’m harangued for going with the non-customizable option...that was a conscious choice. The barrier to entry in that world (both in cost and hassle) is high enough that I know my cheap/lazy self would never follow through with it. Might as well save the $50 over the I3. I’ll probably play with it a little more as time goes on, but for now I am quite happy with the purchase.
  11. That’s a good point. I suppose I was making a similar unfair argument to the one I was trying to avoid. Since you point it out, it brought up a question for me, though. Why is the smaller 5.3 the prevalent motor in the GM trucks? The 5.7 was the larger motor offered in the Dodge/Ram trucks, and was chosen so much more than the smaller V8 that they stopped making the other one. Why do more people choose the smaller motor in the GM trucks? Less emphasis on performance from the manufacturer? Do they have a bigger charge for upgrading to the 6.2?
  12. To each their own, but there’s no way I’d buy the last year of an outgoing model. I wouldn’t really want the first year of a new model either, but I’d be more likely to do that than get the older one.
  13. Comparing cars to trucks is kind of ridiculous to me, so I’ll keep stick to evaluating things with beds for now. There’s no doubt that my 5.3 offers all the performance I need, but it’s not as much fun to drive as my 2010 Ram (5.7) or even 2005 Nissan (5.6) were. The Chevrolet doesn’t feel like it has all the ponies it claims to. Hopefully the tuner I should have soon will remedy some of that.
  14. My 2016 had this intake and Flowmasters installed when I bought it. It’s a great sounding combo, and that plexiglass lid is really cool looking.
  15. I use the “not an ashtray” to store loose change. I hate having change in my pocket so I throw it in there.
