  1. As mentioned above I no longer have a resonator and don't plan to add one back on. I had the exhaust shop dump the exhaust after the axle and there's no drone, even at 1700rpm cruising which was the worst before. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Dropped the tank and replaced the sending unit in my 2016. Two tanks later still working like it should. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I'm not sure how you got a Z71 with that much payload. I searched for a max tow package when I got my truck because every Z71 I looked at didn't have more than 1500-something lbs of payload. I do agree on the stopping power with that particular trailer, a trailer that size also has trailer brakes. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I have a Flagstaff 27bhws that is 6700lbs dry and about 7800lbs fully loaded. So I I'd definitely add 1000lbs to the dry weight. You would be fine with the tow weight but your payload will be the issue. Your truck probably has a payload around 1500 and the hitch weight will be 1000lbs loaded. This only leaves 500lbs for people and gear in the truck. You will more than likely be over or very close to the maximum as you mentioned. I've seen plenty of Z71 trucks hauling similar so it can be done but it doesn't make it right or safe. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks. It's 32' overall, I had it weighed at the scales, came in around 7000lbs. It's a 5.3l with the nht package. I get 12s on the highway, 9s on the hilly back roads and town. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  6. I run a 2.5" level. If you plan to use stock wheels it will rub pretty good on the control arms. I upgraded my control arms to address the rub and ball joint angle and it still rubbed but not as much. Eventually upgraded the wheels to clear. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I have the same issue. I called the dealer to see if it was a warranty item (I'm at 48k miles so wasn't expecting it to be) and confirmed it is not. The service employee said that it may need to be flashed. I had told him that I was going to do it myself so I'm not sure if that was a way to get me in or if it was a legit thing. Anyone else heard of flashing something to fix it? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah it's an LTZ. I guess the LTs come with 6 speed and 3.73. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I don't have the combo you are looking at, I have the nht package (5.3, 8 speed, 3.42). I tow a 32', 8000lb loaded trailer with no issues. The "mountains" in PA are not the rockies however I haven't had any issues. I wasn't doing 65 but 50-55 and I don't think the transmission temp went over 200. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks, unfortunately I'm in Pennsylvania Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  11. I have the tow mirrors from factory. Their usefulness towing and non-towing outweighs any cosmetic concerns. They greatly reduce blind spots. Most of the HD trucks have them as well. I had chrome but dipped them black since they were too much for the black.
  12. Where are you located? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Updated pic after new wheels and dipped mirrors Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah I thought that at first. Hard to tell from the pictures but there is stainless just outside of the weld. It's not the type of metal but the gauge if the resonator. I don't think the Vibrant can support itself and that's why it failed. Had it been supported after the resonator I would have been fine. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
