  1. When I wash my truck, I take a regular garden hose with a piston style gun on it and use my fingers to wash away the dirt and grime on the lip inside the wheel well. It’s hard to get fingers in there with the liners but I figured simply spraying that area to wash away the heavy stuff is better than nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. My best in 25 miles was 27.1, in 50 miles it was 26.5 and in 400 mikes it was 25.3. This was all with the factory tires and wheels along with 2” block in rear and 2.5” lift up front. Since installing the new tires and wheels, I’m not even close to these numbers. The best in 25 mikes now is 23.5. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have a slight rake which is perfect when hauling a load or pulling a trailer. It sits almost level with a little rear end high. I’m removing the 2” spacer up front when I add the 5100’s. There is no clearance issues what so ever and angles are ok but not real great. I’m hoping the ride is much better too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I have a 2” block in the rear of my truck with 5100’s. I have 5100’s for the front but not installed yet. Planning to set them at the highest setting and use the 1/2” lower spacer to get the height I want. I’m currently running a procomp 2.5” level lift with 295-55/20 Toyos.

  5. Those lights will not perform well in your projectors. I had similar ones on my Sierra and I HATED them. The focus was terrible and extremely hard to see st night. I HIGHLY recommend the Morimoto HID kit. I got mine from www.theretrofitsource.com and LOVE them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My guess is you had faulty components or something. My 15 Sierra has 64000 and brakes still check out excellent. I don’t think I’d be worried about it with the mileage you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I got my wheels and tires from www.rimzoneonline.com. I called and talked to them before placing the order and they were super helpful. They answered every question i had about offset and tire size that would work on my truck with the lift I had. I suggest calling them and talking to them about yours.

  10. I’ve got 295/75-20 Toyo Open Country A/T 2’s. The look is killer for me and road noise is minimal imo. The wear seems to be great too. I have approx 23,000 on them now and have well over half the tread left. I drive 97% road with probably 25% of that on side roads with oil and slag chip base. If you know about this type of road, they eat tires. Traction on wet, dry and snowy roads is great too. MY MPGs dropped about 2-3 MPG with the tire and wheel combo i have now over stock. When needed, I’m going to go back to a smaller tire for less rolling resistance. Plus these sling all kinds of stuff on the side of the truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So I bought a new bushing and went to install it. Turn out I figured out why it keeps breaking and had to tell the dealer. The part the bushing goes onto is bent. When I installed the new bushing it immediately popped and broke once I tried to install it in the hinge. The one side of the bushing mount is bent for some unknown reason. I’m thinking the dealership did this one of the four times they replaced this piece under warranty. They are checking into whether that mount is sold separately and are supposed to call me back. It better be covered by the bumper to bumper (factory style) extended warranty I purchased from them or there is going to be fire works. I’ll keep everyone posted on the outcome.

  12. If it’s like my 15, hit the center button on the mirror selector for adjustment. I can fold mine in while driving down the highway if I wanted too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. To prevent dust and dirt from getting in, is what i use it for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
