  1. SDHQ in Gilbert is an authorized Icon shock service center
  2. TO REGEAR or NOT TO REGEAR

    With 4:56 gears and 295/70/17 tires I average 17.5MPG city and hwy combined, I could definitely get better but that seems to be my happy medium of still enjoying the truck and maintaining decent fuel millage. That being said, around town the added power back I can easily get 10-13 MPG if I don't stay out of it.

    Thank you really appreciate it ! Currently these are 295/70R17 (34x11.9)
  5. If you're looking to accomplish all of those points I would really recommend going to a larger diameter shock in the correct length rather than shock extenders to get you back in the "ride zone" of how the shocks were designed

    Brand new DECKED Storage system in the box. Purchased and never used, and now the new truck has a different bed length.... I've personally used these in friends trucks and they work awesome.

This is the info straight from their website: https://decked.com/ This DECKED system fits a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck manufactured from 2007 to 2018 with a 6'6" bed length. It also fits the 2019 Classic (older body style) Silverado 1500 with a 6'6" bed OR This DECKED system fits a GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck manufactured from 2007 to 2018 with a 6'6" bed length.

    The lower frame brackets don't actually serve any functional purpose, from my understanding they were put in place to meet federal safety guidelines to meet frame rail height requirements, but their honestly just a chunk of metal welded under the frame rails. That would look really clean on your truck to be honest. If there's room for adjustment this would let you go even lower also

    Lower brackets hanging off the bottom of the frame rails, these serve no purpose and end up just being in the way. See step 4- https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2493/2184/files/73-1501-G3_Install_Instructions.pdf?10403031697905600624

    Appreciate it ! The SDHQ Skid Plate is aluminum, no drilling required however you do have to remove the lower frame brackets so the skid can fit properly on the truck. These can be cut off using a cut off wheel, which ended up being fairly easy. In their tech notes they note purchasing a new bolt, very much recommend doing this as this tip allows you to install the skid plate without removing the bumper at all ! The bolt can be sourced at any local hardware store. The SDHQ brackets mount off the cowl/fender bracket found underneath the cowl cover. The cowl pieces are just clipped in using standard GM body clips and pop right in/out. The brackets are really high quality and the 3/16" material and mounting points they use makes sure the light does not vibrate or move at all even with running these heavier lights.
  11. Man if only GM paid engineers billions of dollars to develop working products prior to releasing to the public....
