TRG replied to EDL's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI've got a 2018 5.3 with about the same amount of time/miles. It's an LT Double Cab. Those fabric lined wheel wells are ridiculous...not sure why they ever would've chosen that over the plastic. I had the 22"s on mine when I bought the truck, but got rid of them for 18"s. After swapping the tire set-up the only negative I have with the truck is the damn fishbite chuggle transmission. It has gotten a bit better over time (maybe because I'm used to it or the truck is "learning" how I drive), but it's still there and I also get the slamming into gear when coasting quickly to a stop once in a while. I've tuned out the V4 mode, shimmed the gas pedal and disabled Active Grade Braking and those small things have seemed to help incrementally but it's still an issue. Oh - and the Direct Inject noise that bleeds through the steering column area into the cab is annoying, but it seems folks are getting close to a fix for that...which is on my list to try.

TRG replied to dab86's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI've got 275/70/18 Ridge Grapplers on 18x9 Fuel Mavericks. I'm currently running them at 35 PSI. I called Nitto and gave them all of my setup info and they had told me that the recommended PSI for my setup was 42PSI. However, before inflating to 42 I did a chaulk test...and it seemed good (uniform) with them at 35PSI, so I've left them there.
Just got Wheels/Tires from Custom Offsets. Easy ordering experience, they kept me apprised of the processing/ship status all along the way and they came well packaged with no damage at all. I would buy from them again.
TRG posted a topic in For Sale/WantedBought this 6 months ago for a 2018 Silverado 5.3L. Works great and is the most up to date version. Had no issues what so ever with the device, but ended up buying a tuner and am able to tune the AFM out of my truck, so this device is no longer needed. Blue Lights Version = V8.6R1 $100.00 shipped
TRG replied to lapoolboy's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingThanks for sharing this! Has anyone tried messing with this themselves and resolved the issue?
I've never had an alignment done where they got the wheel straight. I've taken my current truck to two different places with no luck. If this was an older truck it wouldn't bug me so bad, but it's a 2018 and it's annoying as hell. I don't understand why this is so difficult to get right. Anyway, do you (or anyone) have any tips or tutorials that you could share that explain how to do this on a newer truck? I'm going to just take care of this myself, but have never tried it before, so don't want to mess up the alignment in the process. Thanks in advance! Edit: So I went ahead and just did it based on what I've viewed for vids on youtube, etc... The most difficult part was getting the the lock bolts loose on each tie rod in order to make the adjustments. I made marks on the inner and outer tie rods so that I could get each side as close to the same amount of turn as possible, but I'm sure it's not 100% exact, but it's real close. I guess I'll just monitor my tire wear and determine if being off a small amount causes any adverse affect.
I really liked the look of the Grapplers and didn't really care if they were going to be louder, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are quiet! They don't sound much louder than the Bridgestone Duelers I pulled off.

Just picked up some 275/70/18 Ridge Grapplers. They are much quieter than I thought they would be and look great on the truck! I called Nitto to check in on recommended tire pressure and they told me 42psi all around for best wear...for anyone wondering about psi for that size.
