Will this problem happen again? Who knows. Could the oil pump have cause the issue with the lifters? Quite possibly. Could the lifters have failed due to the AFM? Perhaps. In the end you have a brand new engine so anything on the previous engine will not cause any issues with the new engine. It's up to you whether to keep it or not.

The brand they use is Toff and it has a lifetime warranty. They were going to charge $575 to do it but the sales people had told me it was $495 and so the body shop matched that price. $495 is the price that the GMC Accessories page says the spray on liner costs so you may be able to have your dealership do the same.

I had a 2009 Malibu and GM had redesigned their halogen headlights/housings and it produced an amazing result (Compared to my '99 Grand Am and '01 Corvette). I'm not 100% on the specs but I believe HIDs produce 3000 lumens whereas typically halogens produce around 1400. Lumens is the brightness of the light so HID's are over 2x as bright as a typical halogen. I believe the halogens GM used in my Malibu were actually rated at 3000 lumens... but they did not have a projector. A projector makes a world of difference for the headlights. It offers an even light pattern with little to no hot spots (darker area's on the ground where the light doesn't illuminate the ground). Another thing you have to get used to is the color temperature of the headlights. HID's from the factory are around 4300-5000k. This produces a white light (think sunlight). Halogens on the other hand are typically around 2700-3200k which produces more of a yellow light. Most people are used to halogens and therefore like the yellow light better; however, OEM HIDs offer true daylight color which for some is far superior. Halogens have definitely come a long way in the past 10 years but I feel HIDs are superior.
Macleod52 replied to frenchsquared's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Why not drive with the HID's and see how you like them instead of what people on the internet say? HIDs produce better light output than halogens. I imagine most of the people complaining are people who aren't used to HIDs or know very little about them.

Turn off the truck and then start it back up. See if that fixes your symptoms. I'm thinking it's related to the memory feature as it saves your radio stations and such. It could be turning the radio on as that's how it's programmed in the memory.
