So I've been looking around and really think that I need to get one of these to keep in my truck. I'm just a bit fuzzy on the various amperage ratings. How many is enough to jump one of our trucks off or another vehicle if needed. Amazon has marked down several but I'd like to hear from your opinions on the matter before springing for something that is more than I really need. I've been looking at the NOCO Genius Boost HD or the Anker PowerCore Jump Starter mini which they've really marked down. Anyways what do ya'll think?
I installed mine several weeks ago and haven't had a tune. I've thought about getting one but wanted to wait until I got a few more things done. One tidbit of information is I disconnected my battery just as the instructions recommended and left it disconnected for approximately 45 minutes. A mechanic friend of mine also recommended this as it would do a hard reset to the ecm and force it to relearn the fuel curves and such. I've not seen a tremendous increase in horsepower but then again I'm not trying to race it, I have noticed an awesome difference in the sound of my engine especially when accelerating. You should be okay without a tune unless you want one. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
I love my Weathertech floor mats, they are supposedly the laser measured variety and the fit is exact and they look good as well as protect my carpet. Also they stay in place, the drivers side uses the nubs that the factory mats use and the passenger side uses little plastic spiky things to hold it in place. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
Installed a K&N 71-3082 Cold Air Intake yesterday. Couldn't have been any easier to install. I'd read that this mod slightly changes the sound of your engine but wasn't expecting that. It's not a bad thing and for the most part it's still quiet just has a growl when you hard accelerate. So now that she's breathing better I've got to get her exhausting better. On to the next mod...

I hope this takes care of your issues. I recently got a 3.5" Rough County lift installed on my truck and so far no issues at all. Also running 33" BFG AT's with some pretty aggressive tread for all terrain, I only get a bit of road noise. Keep us posted on your progress. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
So I have a bit of a rhetorical question. Those of you who've modified your trucks, (installing lift kits, CAI's, tuning, etc...) have you ever had any issues when taking it to the dealership in regards to warranty work? Of course they wouldn't and can't warranty any aftermarket parts but have any of you ran into a situation where the service department or dealership tried to give you flack for modifying or installing aftermarket parts? This has not happened to me I've just been reading up on our rights as consumers, Auto Warranties (FTC). I know it's a bit late to be worrying about this now after I've had my truck lifted but I've had this thought in the back of my mind wondering what the dealership might have to say if/ when I ever have to bring my Silverado in for any warranty work or even for the oil changes/ tire rotations, etc... What do you guys have to say on this topic?
Well I did a little more tweaking on the ride today. Replaced the front and rear bow-ties with black-out ones. (Had a body shop do the rear, i arrived too late in the day to do both) so I did the front myself. I think it turned out nice and on the Silver Ice Metallic finish it sort of pops.
I've got them in my workshop at the moment. The shop that installed all of that actually asked me if I wanted my wheels and tires, uh yes... Unless they were going to knock off $600 - $700 off the price. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
One of the specifications in picking out the lift kit was that it came with a diff drop so as to keep the angles as close to stock as possible. It also came with new control arms, ball joints, etc... I believe it is the same kit that the dealerships use to lift their trucks. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
The tires on my 2016 Silverado were pretty worn, I had maybe 5 months left on them. So after a bit of hemming and hawing I decided to go ahead and have a Rough Country 3.5" lift installed along with new 33's and some matte black wheels. Also got a running rail/. side step installed also. I'm pretty stoked with it. Now on to the next mod... Before After
A week or so after buying my 16 Silverado I took it back to the dealership to get Android Auto, radio/ convenience center had to be flashed. They asked me to come by around 2:00 PM and would have it done quickly. Fast forward to 5:30 PM and they still claimed they couldn't get the file necessary to update downloaded. The service tech told me it was a "very large file, like a billion bytes", to which I replied, so it's a gigabyte... He sheepishly nodded his head and walked away. After I told the service manager what I did for a living, field service engineer/ product support engineer for a very large cnc OEM he to kind of acted sheepish. So they've never dazzled me with brilliance, but since that time they haven't tried to baffle me with BS either. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
