  1. I doubt there’s really a difference between the two tires other than how much weight the tire can handle and the ride quality. The 80 psi tire I’m betting will handle more weight than the 60 psi tire. If your looking for mileage, run more psi since it will be easier rolling resistance. If you want better ride, lower the psi. If you want a happy medium, split the difference. As I mentioned, I have E rated tires on my truck and i run them at 38 psi. The ride is okay and mileage is okay. I have no need not desire to put more than 40 psi in my tires since I never haul anything of that weight in my half ton truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The 80 psi rating is if you want the max weight rating of the tire. I’ve got E rated Toyos and I run 38 PSI in them. I’ve got right at 70K on them and still have roughly 1/2-5/8” of tread left. I’ve never ran them more than 40 psi either. Even wear all across tread too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Probably because this topic has been beat to death with more than several threads. Unless you want to change housings and do some in depth retrofitting, I’d suggest the plug and play hylux ballasts and morimoto or another high quality hid bulb. Again, give the guys at fast headlights a call or look. www.fastheadlights.com Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That looks pretty cool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I suggest getting a hold of fast headlights. They have an HID kid that is literally plug and play. Light output is tons better. I have these on my truck and recently put them in my wife’s 2017 Acadia. They are the Hylux 2A88 35W ballasts with Morimoto 5500K bulbs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Then you will change nothing over what you have now. If you want to run a larger tire, put the 5100’s on at max height and leave the blocks in. That will give you a pretty close to level set up. If you want to avoid the 5100’s, get the lowering shackles for the rear or remove the blocks but don’t touch the front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. By adding 5100’s set at max setting then removing the rear blocks, you will have the Cali lean. The front will be around 2” higher by doing wha you are saying you want to do. If you want it leveled, as the 5100’s at max height and that’s it. Fitting 34’s may be tough though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I would think they will work either way. I just didn’t have the time when i switched my ballasts our to remove the relay harness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Get them from these guys. They are super nice and customer service is top notch! http://www.fastheadlights.com/product-p/buy_hid_kit.htm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. No. The hylux 2A88’s Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’ve got hylux ballasts with morimoto bulbs. I switched to the hylux when my last morimoto ballasts went out. I bought my original kit from TRS and they told me I still needed the relay harness kit. I haven’t tried it without the relays but all that BS is installed already and figured I’d just leave it for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Have you tried replacing the bulbs? I’ve got spare bulbs for this issue. I also switched y morimoto ballasts out for the hylux. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I like the added assurance for b-b coverage when I buy a vehicle. I bought the extended warranty for my 15 Sierra when I bought the truck and it has paid for itself so far. I’m covered out to 175K and I have 101 on it now. For the price it cost me, the miles I put on my truck, all the electronic BS on these things and the cost of labor, I feel they are worth it. But as the post above says, it’s all personal preference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I had the SAME thing happen to me. Turned out it was a faulty brake wire running through the axle tube. It had rubbed through and was shorting out. Replaced it with a wire outside the tube and no issues since. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
