  1. Used Retrax cost:fitment

    That’s incorrect, the electric powered one is approx 1800-2000, not the standard ones. I bought a new powder coated one on my last truck for about $1600 installed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. We have trigger locking here in Texas too. I guess that would be one of the reasons people are upset about not having gas caps anymore, nothing to wedge in the gas pump when there’s no locking trigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You could always buy an outside locking door matching your paint color, line it with a gasket and be done with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Amen and if someone looks to get more from their trucks than what’s offered well that’s why there are thousands of aftermarket off-road parts places. I know that if I were into serious racing, towing or off-roading I sure as heck wouldn’t care what GM offered, I’d be having true and proven parts installed with warranty and a big ol smile driving away from 4wheelparts.

  5. Used Retrax cost:fitment

    Retrax sells rails for it, I’d contact them and go from there. Just make sure to figure in additional parts cost to the $850 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Bilstein shocks thread

    What ever you do, DO NOT BUY FROM SUMMIT RACING! My customer experience was horrendous! My first order was great, second order was delayed even when told should be there in a couple days especially when coming from same state, 3 hour drive from where I live and processed 11 hours after transaction making it a 4 day delivery! Customer service was extremely rude, BUY LOCAL! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. And, so what’s your point? No manufacturer offers rear ends for over sized tires. You’ll be voiding warranty only on parts associated with lift or rear end. What’s ridiculous, I don’t know anyone that cares about warranty once they’re spending multiple thousands to get what they want. I’m completely aware of losing warranty on parts associated with my personal desire to personalize my vehicle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I think you’re absolutely correct, these trucks are designed for us to get the maximum out of what trucks are designed and built for in the first place, towing and hauling and highway cruising. But, if I were to do a lift with much bigger tires I’d definitely use only a proven off-road rear end but then even though I’m sure it can be done, I’d be screwed on towing and hauling. Just go down to your local 4wheelparts store and get it done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I replaced all of mine on my 18 with Bilstein front and rear at 7K miles. The factory shocks (Rancho) are horrible! Bilstein 4600 if you have stock height, 5100’s for leveled truck suspension, huge difference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Bilstein 4600/5100’s all the way! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. IMHO, I don’t think it has anything to do with cost-savings, it’s about quality. You can not compare the other manufacturers low quality vehicles to GM, my GMC completely outperforms all in its class out of the box, if I want to upgrade it then it’ll be up to me, wouldn’t want to pay for an upgrade that would need replacing down the road due to even more upgrades. My truck only has a level on it, not a lift but if was to go do a lift I’d then and only then run with it and do the whole package. Com’on now, it’s not that expensive to switch out gears especially in a package deal, besides, I’m sure there are other things in the world to be upset about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The epa does have strict requirements which I’m sure you’d be able to google and find it requiring “ALL” auto manufacturers to comply with an mpg by certain date so I’d make a wise guess and say that GM is definitely leading the pack with their mpg’s on their full size trucks, my 18 6.2 with a level front and rear and heavier wheels and tires gets 22-23 highway Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Absolutely correct, auto makers have strict guidelines to follow based on what stringent regulations they’re having to follow. Personally, IMHO, who cares! You’ve got excellent mpg’s and performance right out of the box! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My 18 6.2, 323, 8 speed works flawlessly (knock on wood) and with new heavier aftermarket Fuel 20X9’s wrapped with 33’s KO2’s, 2.25 front level, 1” added rear and I get 22-23 mpgs on road trips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’d wait a few years, guaranteed the one you want will be out in a few. Keeping my bad boy but I’m waiting for 2022 diesels [emoji6][emoji631] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
