  1. Pretty color and looks great! [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. LMAO! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Looked at mine, didn’t find anything like that, found rubber seals on both sides apparently assisting in the flow like air dam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ve owned a lot of trucks and SUV’s, Michelin Defenders and AT2’s are literally identical when it comes to traction in any off-road condition, not at all good for lose soil and especially not good at all in wet grass. You can get much better traction with half-way worn AT tires in those conditions. My experience while driving in snow with both we not at all good, lots of slipping and sliding but the one thing I did appreciate about the Michelin tires was their comfort, smooth on the road and slightly better mpg’s but there are far better tires with better traction with about the same ride comfort. Defenders were great on towing, much better on wear and mpg’s. I’m currently running Nitto Ridge Grapplers, which have completely out performed Michelin’s in everything except mpg’s which I’m perfectly fine with especially because I was getting nails and screws in my LT Michelin’s ever few months and nothing in a year with my Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I probably jinxed myself now lol. Today’s tire technology, you’ll get much more then what was offered 5-10 years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Looks great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You’re most likely riding smoother because of the 17 inch wheels, more rubber makes for a smoother ride. I should’ve done 18’s versus 20’s I’m running now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’d keep an eye on your front end geometry with that kit, it’s a stretched level. I’ve heard far to many horror stories on RC kits and the serious and expensive repairs that came with RC just for a look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Good looking truck, What’s your setup? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Take some profile, front and rear pics of your truck so OP can see [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. You’ll get some insecure individuals from time to time that’ll have something negative to say cause it makes them feel better, the world is full of them but depending on the site your on most are helpful, some are full of trash more so than others that will contradict literally anything out of the norm for them, they lack communication skills and most of the time only have what they consider as their only friends, on forums. 1slow1500 most likely had the best answer to your question, Tire size make a big difference especially certain brands run larger than others. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. BDS is owned by Fox and a reputable company, I wouldn’t worry about the quality. As long as your CVBall joints are in good position you should be fine. Again, don’t worry about it, any issues there’s a lot of us on this site that can give helpful advice Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Wait till after the lift and wheel and tires are on then you can take some measures, you’ll want it to match front and rear, would look off following you on the road. What shocks you going with? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Not sure if the 4” lift gives you new spindles like the 6” but You may get the widened track width poking out your front wheels so you’ll need to add rear spacers in order to balance out the look. If you have to get them look at Bora spacers, apparently they’re the best/safest. Just make sure to re-torque on every tire rotation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If you just ordered, cancel it or reject it unless it’s to late. But, you’ll be fine, you’ll definitely need rear spacers probably 1.75”, hope it all goes well for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m running a tune with mine turned off but the Strangest thing, I’ve met so many folks with K2’s and not one has ever mentioned issues with their AFM, you’ll only hear about it here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. They’re supposed to be really great steps for no snow conditions, heard they get stuck when snow packed. A buddy of my had them on his 16 model Gmc 1500 and raves about them and one day while we were out Hog hunting, by the end of the day and no fault of the AMP steps he somehow crushed his passenger side and heavily impacted mud into his drivers side and the next time out he had heavy duty black steel steps on it. If you stick to city driving and light off-roading you’ll be fine. Still laugh about it though [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Sorry. Procomp makes one, I’d hold off another year, avoid Fabtech. CST should have more coming out very soon, I wouldn’t rush into it. Call around tomorrow morning, 4wheelparts is who did mine and may recommend some but I’d even contact CST and just ask them what’s available or coming soon. Good luck!

  18. Oh, forgot to mention that with the CST lift they don’t have to cut your front differential at all unlike the others. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Had a shop do it, took a couple days. It’s much more versatile than the 6” and the Kit itself is superior quality, hand crafted in the (California) USA. The stage one kit doesn’t come with front shocks or rears, I wanted something specific to the height and went with the same manufacturer. Heard great reviews on the kit from a few others in the forum and I’m so glad I did. Here’s the cheapest I could find the kit for ($1600) https://performancelifts.com/cst-2014-2018-gm-1500-4-5-stage-1-lift-csk-c3-19-1.html Cst Coil Overs are approximately $1500 CST you’ll definitely want adjustable for the front, that’s my only gripe, wish I could adjust them. On the rear shocks, starting around $130, you can go with anyone, CST, King or Fox. Fox shocks are more readily on the shelf versus custom built CST or King which could take a while for replacements. Fox are usually in stock or a day away. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Coil Overs give the best ride quality overall. I’m using my truck as a daily driver much more now, perfect height for everything especially being able to get into and out of garage parking lots and much easier to get into and out with the 4.5”. I’m running 295/60/20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers on a 20x9 +1 offset Fuel wheel. CST Kit came with 3” rear blocks and I added an “add a leaf” so it won’t squat when hauling a few hundred pounds.

  21. CST 4.5” Lift, it’s the perfect height, absolutely love mine! Doesn’t widen the track width or turning radius and allow you to keep your stock wheels if you like them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Doesn’t matter what vehicle it is, it depends on the air induction system, look to see where your air suction is and it is identical to my Z71 which I’d never go through that high water unless it was an emergency and had a backup plan. If your air suction is higher than the highest point of the water you’re in then you’ll be fine but keep the transmission in 1st gear allowing the exhaust to exit without clogging up causing a stall.
