  1. Did you have to do the North Cal mod where you cut and trim to get them to fit? What size lift or level? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Good looking truck, I have a 19 LD z71 in cancun red. Did you replace your upper control arms when you installed the 2” level? I assume you have stamped steel UCAs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks, yeah I’ve spent many many hours of searching over the last few weeks but mainly was hoping people would post pictures like my original post that started this topic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Lol I was thinking the same thing, I appreciate the other posts but they don’t seem to be applicable to my question. I may end up doing the same.. I know Nitto has their ridge grapplers in a 275/65/18 which would only be 1/2” bigger than stock and would be XL rated so they shouldn’t hurt MPG much but should give me much better off road traction and puncture resistance vs the stock tires Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you for the post, but I was hoping to hear from people without a level kit (no spacers, no Bilstein, no aftermarket coil overs etc) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. After crunching the numbers of a level with Bilstein 5100s and readylift UCA plus install, I’m looking north of $1k. So I’m considering running a 32” AT or MT on my stock wheels, ordering the GM aluminum skid plate and calling it a day. My main purpose is just functionality when doing mild off-road, not necessarily looks. If you have larger than stock AT/MT tires on your 14+ can you post a picture and detail if/how much it rubs while off-roading? Please include the tire and wheel size Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. When I spoke with a tech at Bilstein earlier this week, he said they tested their 5100s with stock components including UCAs and there were no issues. He mentioned that they probably stuck with 1.8” as the highest because much higher could create problems with stock components (some of their 5100s for certain trucks go up to 2.5-2.75”) Trying to think through it logically, as long as the 5100 shock stops the downward travel I don’t think a ball joint could pop out of the stock UCA... but if the UCA contacting the bump stop is what’s stops the downward travel and the shock and weight of the tires/wheel is trying to push the wheel down further, I could see how the ball joint would be popped out (more like pulled out). Does that sound like sound reasoning? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Same here, but wondering if flares would look funny on a Silverado without a large lift Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Interested in this too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Anyone install 5100s on the 1.8” setting and have any regrets? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So a 1.8 bilstein lift will net me an additional 1.8” of ground cleaner in the front correct? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thank you for the info. Why do you think there are people saying how the UCA can fail with a level? Readylift evens says GM says to not level because of the stamped steel arms Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. May also take a look at readylifts UCAs. Seem a bit cheaper but we’ll made Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Bump, in the same boat. Looking to install a 1.5” motofab spacer and curious if I should put new UCA so I don’t have the UCA ball joint fail on me
