  1. Thanks for the heads up. I will keep an eye on them. Did you by chance try replacing them with the zinc plated bolts?
  2. 8 speed transmission ?

    I know this is not a very useful datapoint, but my '18 now has 12K miles on it and I have had no issues from my 8 speed. No shutter, vibration, clunks or hard downshifts. In winter here in Ohio, or when it is about 40° or lower, if I get in the truck start it and take off right away the shift from 1st to 2nd is a bit firmer than normal for the first couple times. Once it is warm it is not an issue. If I use the remote start for a couple minutes it shifts great right off the bat. I think a fluid change may help, but its really not a big deal.
  3. Has anyone ordered the new Method 315 style for their trucks? This style is new for 2019 and Im thinking the gold 315 would look awesome on my black '18 Silverado. If anyone has any color 315s on their '14-18 post them up. Not much on google to look at.
  4. If you draw a line from the bottom of the front bumper across the side of the truck, you will see the bottom of my bumper is just above the hub centerline of the wheel. The blue truck is a few inches above the hub center.
  5. That looks much taller than a 1" leveling kit.... I have Bilstein 5100 on mine set at the highest setting and I am no where near that high. IMG_20180626_182652411_HDR by Mike Kubiak, on Flickr
  6. Sorry I did not see this until now. I think the RHS is a decent tire, but the REVO 3 will be better in wet, off road, and wear. The RHS may be slightly quieter, but the Revo 3 is still not loud. Both seem to do well in snow.
  7. I would love to replace my open car hauler with an enclosed gooseneck. I figure if I stay in the 24-26' range, everything I haul plus the race car will be under the limit of my '18 Max tow. I think having the weight on the axle instead of out back will help with stability towing something that heavy. I too have Firestone Ride Rite air bags. Did you install the factory wiring for the gooseneck or install your own? Any pictures of it?
  8. The Revo 3 is an excellent all around tire. Much improved in wet, snow, off road and wear over the previous Revo 2. I think they look good, but that is highly subjective. In my line of work I have driven on many many A/T tires in different categories and the Revo 3 is near the top of the list. I would put them ahead of the Falkens, Toyos, Contis, etc and a lot of others that get recommended on here. They would be on par with the KO2 in a lot of areas, but like mentioned the Revo 3 comes in P metric sizes which are lighter and more appropriate for a 1/2 ton truck. Side note, they do not actually meet the test requirements for the 3 peak mountain snowflake symbol, but are pretty close. The reason to keep that off because of Blizzak is not true.
  9. Off road carbon trim?

    I wrapped mine in CF vinyl as well. A little time consuming to make sure no wrinkles show up, but I was able to cover all the wood in my crew cab with 1 $12 roll.

  10. Thanks all for the input. It seems the price people actually pay varies greatly, but around $600 seems to be a reasonable amount to expect.
  11. I did just a level on my '18 and used my brother's '16 to compare and re-level. A 2" level put my cutoff about 3-4" above my brother's truck.
  12. I had those steps installed on my '18 when I picked it up from the dealer. I do not know what part number they used though.
  13. I was planning to buy new sensors so I don't have to break these down. Thank you guys for the input. It's going to be another month or so before I buy new but I'll keep this info in mind. I want them to go relatively quick so I might start around $1000.
  14. I am looking to get another set of wheels for my 2018. What would the stock 18" with OE Michelin Energy Saver tires be worth? I know, they are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them. Think I could get $6-800 for them to help offset the cost of the new wheels? Tires have about 12k miles on them.
