  1. Thanks, unfortunately I'm in Pennsylvania Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. 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.
  3. Where are you located? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Updated pic after new wheels and dipped mirrors Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  5. 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
  6. On a side note, the exhaust being cut off there has no drone and sounds better than before. Apparently the last 90 with the exhaust tip created the drone. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Just an update on the Vibrant resonator. While the sound was great the quality is not. About a month after having it installed I noticed the metal ring around the edge was cracked in 2 places. It was disappointing but didn't affect it so I left it go. Jump to last week and the whole resonator and tip fell off. This is mostly the exhaust shops fault. The resonator inlet pipe tore off right after the weld. Vibrant did respond to my email and pointed out several issues with the shop so I'll give them credit for this. Had the shop added another bracket it would probably be fine. Unfortunately it fell off on the highway and a tractor trailer flattened it. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. I only had it on a few weeks before I got different wheels. I plasti dipped the hub caps of my one car and it lasted over a year including going through car washes and PA winter. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I don't have any pictures but I used plasti dip. It's removable later if needed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  10. It looks like several things have contributed to my issue. The new wheels are about 6 lbs lighter than the factory ones although the same size. I don't recall the bouncing/shaking until they were installed. The tires were taken off the stock wheels so that didn't change. I had the wheels balance checked again and everything was fine. I replaced the bilsteins with factory shocks and it made a huge difference. I also dialed back my roadmaster active suspension and it helped a little more. The road I travel to work is now 95% bounce/shake free now. I Only feel it in 2 sections where the road is really wavy. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Fishing line and 3m eraser wheel. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  12. I have no experience with them and haven't researched lately but last I read they were unable to tune the 8 speeds,I'm not sure if this is still the case. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. I replaced the oem 20s at 27k. They passed inspection but barely. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Same tires as before. Shocks have less than 10k on them. The wheels were balanced but not road force balanced. It's varies by the road. I've read comments about less wheel mass causing less damping but nothing concrete. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
