  1. I’m not a dealer expert (a few folks around here are pretty knowledgeable on the inner workings of dealerships) but I would expect that a wheel speed sensor is covered under your powertrain warranty. I also expect the dealer will try to weasel out of that coverage by telling you your wheel/tire setup voids that portion of the warranty even though I have a hard time believing big tired would cause that failure. I’m not sure how you’d fight that one. I would definitely ask the dealer to do a warranty swap of the wheel speed sensor and go from there.
  2. I am running the same setup on my 2017 Silverado LT 4x4. I have a Fabtech 6 inch lift with 35s. I have been on that setup for almost two years and have not had a single issue with cruise control. I do intend to re-gear/tune soon (I am going to 4.10 gears) primarily to restore the feel of the stock setup, towing capacity and relieve some stress on the transmission. All that is to say I doubt your lift/wheel/tire setup is causing cruise control problems. I think the issue likely lies elsewhere. As was mentioned earlier, the cruise control and wheel speed sensor have no way of knowing how big your tires are. Perhaps you have a bad wheel speed sensor? Not that it helps to hear “I don’t have a problem even though you do” but I have had my share of answers from dealer technicians that I knew immediately to be incorrect. I am always frustrated when the supposed experts on a vehicle were either too lazy or too uninformed to do some research to get you a correct answer. I’m not sure which is worse.
  3. If you’re talking about the 4” round tubular steps (I’m not familiar with what’s standard on the Midnight Edition), then no. They are open on the ends. I just bought a set for my truck, too.
  4. I did the same thing. It looked pretty clean but scraping it can’t hurt.
  5. I’m talking about the threaded post that holds the handle for the factory jack. It’s roughly in the center of the cab under the rear seat. The factory “nut” that is there is basically a plastic piece with a threaded metal insert. I basically cleaned the post, bought a normal bolt to attach the ground and then replaced the jack handle and factory nut on top of it. I haven’t had any issues since.
  6. When I did mine, I used the threaded bolt that secures the jack handle under the rear seat. That might be a decent option depending on your setup.
