Thanks again BigWhiskey! i have a two-post lift at home so maybe I could level the truck at home if it needs it. If I had tires mounted at shop but did leveling at home, would you align the truck after getting tires or after leveling? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Thanks BW! I asked my friend who owns the shop I would get the tires mounted at about cranking on the bars but he made it sound like it was a lot of work. Maybe he just didn’t want to do it. LOL. If I go with the 295 you mentioned, I have to level the front but do I have to lift the rear as well? Is there a specific brand of shock extenders that you would run? Thx!

I have a 2018 2500HD CC Midnight Edition and it's time for new tires. The original (Duratracs) 'only' lasted about 35000 miles. Not sure if this is typical, but a tread block tore away and am now seeing threads. Anyway, the truck is all stock and the tires on it are 275/65/18. Can i fit a bit bigger tire under it without making any other changes? I've read a lot about 'leveling' the front end by cranking up the torsion bars. Is this relatively easy to do and do i need any special tools? As far as tire brands, the wife really likes the aggressive look of the Duratrac (she drives truck 90% of the time) so I figured id just order another set unless there is something with similar tread but maybe last a bit longer? Thanks!
I don’t mean to hijack this thread but I had the exact same question as the OP. I like the muscle car rake on my 2018 2500HD ME but was curious about putting a bigger tire on the 18” wheel. Maybe the next size up? 275/65/18 is what’s on there now. My truck has about 34,000 miles in it and I am seeing threads in one of my tires (maybe tread block got torn). These are the stock Duratracs.

These look great. I was looking for a rear seat cover mainly because we have three dogs. Do they sell just the rear and do you think it would withstand a lot of paw prints? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Wow. I had no idea they were so obscure. I guess I’m used to the old plows that had the hydraulics hanging off the grill in the off season. That looks very doable. This is is probably a very open-ended question, but are some plows better than others, especially for a newbie?
Apologies for what is a very novice question, and perhaps in the wrong forum, but I was thinking of looking for bigger tires or even a bigger wheel/tire combo to help fill the wheel wells on my 2018 2500HD. Over in the tire board, I saw a lot of discussion about this topic and people always seem to ask what ‘leveling kit’ do they have. I’m assuming that this lifts the front of the truck to ‘level’ it with the rear, eliminating the muscle car rake of the truck. Am I correct about this, and do I need this kit if I want bigger tires (or should I do this anyway regardless of the tires) Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Hi. I was contemplating finding an old beater to do some plowing (not commercial, just 2-3 driveways). I already own a 2003 Tacoma and the 2018 Silverado 2500 HD. I have heard that plowing with the smaller truck might not be the best idea since it could do a number on the front end and the frame. I thought about maybe getting a plow for the Silverado but would hate to clutter up the front end with an ugly mount. I guess I’m curious if the mounts themselves are easy to remove once winter is over. I don’t want any tabs or anything sticking out. For full transparency, I’ve never plowed before, so another part of me does think that if i had an old truck and did something stupid during my learning curve, I wouldn’t feel as bad as opposed to damaging a $60,000 truck. I’d also be curious if any other members had a picture of a Midnight Edition with a plow in it. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Great post! My 2018 Midnight Duramax is my first diesel and I agree completing on the whole ‘want vs. need’. We mostly tow a horse trailer and hay. I’m certain that a gas 6.0 would’ve been fine for the jobs. But I like having that huge torque available if needed. Just yesterday we picked up a 100 bales of hay and had to drive through the back paddock to turn around, which still had a foot of snow. The truck did it like it wasn’t even working. I wasn’t ever actually worried that the truck would get stock, more the trailer, but it was like it wasn’t even pulling anything. I’m not suggesting a gas motor would’ve been able to do it. I’m sure it would have. I just like how effortless it is with the Duramax. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Thanks for the info. I just found the same info in the 2500 brochure that the dealer gave me. Apparently the Snow Prep package cant be combined with the sunroof. Is that package a requirement should I ever want to put a plow on this truck to plow my driveway (assuming I get this truck) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Hello everyone This is my first post to his forum and I had a handful of questions. I test-drove a Silverado 2500HD Midnight Edition LTZ (Duramax) yesterday and really loved it and would like to get one, but here are my questions: 1. Sunroof: The truck I test drove had every option that I wanted, except for a sunroof. Dealer told me that because it had the Snow Prep package, a sunroof wasn't available. Is that true? 2. Plowing: I would never use this truck for commercial plowing, but could a plow be added to it even if you didn't' have the Snow Prep package? 3. Power-folding mirrors: I definitely liked the larger, power-folding mirrors. I started looking at other Midnight Editions on other dealer sites. Are these larger mirrors ALWAYS power-folding, or are some manual, and if so, is there a way to tell just by looking at the pictures that dealers post on their websites? 4. Heated steering wheel: Do all of the LTZ trucks have this? 5. Buy or Build: Do most folks just do a search to find the right truck? How many order one, and what is the build time? 6. MPG: What kind of mileage do these trucks typically get (with diesel)? Thanks. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I do more research on the truck.
