I ripped off the 275x55x20 OEM chromes and exchanged for a set of Z71 OEM 265x65x18." Nice quiet ride on the interstates, doesn't feel or ride like an Abrams tank, good gas mileage. Keeps up with a 6.2 running 35's big knobbys with wide offsets. My 'off-road,' like most here, is riding on the shoulder from time to time.
Rolling Thunder replied to Boondock Patrol's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500Another trip to Marathon, FL down Interstate 95 and Florida Turnpike. Showing the last leg over the Bay Bridge Tunnel and up through Delaware at reduced legal highway speeds and the overall mileage.
Rolling Thunder replied to Boondock Patrol's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500Recent Alabama trips down Interstate 81 with the overall mileage. Tank topped off each time by hand but I've found out the fuel economy gauge is 'right on.'
If your lift isn't dealer certified, whether they do it or send it out, GM may not warranty any suspension and related issues just like their Service Bulletin states. It doesn't matter if an after market shop plates their lift parts in gold. How much clearer can it be?
Do a search here for the Bak covers fitting flush to the top rail. There has been quite a few leaking issues with them. Look above at bkesting's red truck with the Access Lorado cover, it's a classy one.
I would look for a 2018 if you want a higher trim model . The 2019 is the next generation and you see all the issues they had on the 2014 'next 'generation' models. There is no way I would buy a makeover, first year 'next generation' vehicle (IMO). Lease: Yes, buy: No.

My good friend had a 2014 Z71 Black Edition for 59,000 miles and traded on a 2016 Z71 Black Edition (both are leases). No issues with the 2014 and none with his 2016 @ 30,000 miles. All visits to the dealer involved oil changes and a one recall repair (2014). I based buying my 2016 (no issues) on his experiences.
This works just fine ^^^^ With a sealant coat first if you feel energetic then Meguiar's Gold Class on top twice a year. Many other good waxes are available, it doesn't have to be Meguiar's . Mother's is fine, Zaino is good, Liquid Glass is good. Adams is good but overpriced and over rated.
Now that looks nice with the OEM wheels. Some of the 'problems' seen here result from installing 'macho' big wheels and tires that change the geometry of the front suspension and ruin ball joints. Hope you keep your OEM wheels!
