  1. Check your payload rating sticker on the driver side door jamb, that's the number you're looking for. That's the total weight the truck is legally rated to carry including yourself and any passengers. For my 2018 crew cab short box its 1641 lbs., yours might be slightly higher due to being a double cab. Definitely would not recommend putting 4k lbs. in your bed.
  2. Anyone tried the Hankook Dynapro AT2's yet? Thinking about picking them up, they seem budget friendly, have the three peak symbol for snow, and seem like a fairly mild AT tire which is what I'm looking for. Hoping people who have tried them can give their experiences and reviews with them so far.
  3. Did you end up getting these? I am also curious about these tires. Leaning towards getting the Michelin Defender LTX but these are very similar, have the 3 peak winter rating, and are much cheaper.
  4. Hello, My 2018 Silverado is at 30k miles and almost out of the factory 36k/3yr warranty. I plan on getting an extended warranty through GM and I was hoping fellow truck owners who have purchased GM's extended warranties could share what sort of price range they bought theirs for. I went to my local dealership and all of the warranties were between $1,900 for a 3yr/36k with a $250 deductible and $2,300 for a 4yr/60k one with a $100 deductible. Do these prices seem reasonable? I plan on shopping around at other dealerships and I have heard I can just call or email out of state dealerships and purchase from them if they have better offers. This is my first time purchasing a warranty so I want to be sure I get a reasonable price on it. Thank you all in advance for the help!
  5. Well this is disappointing to hear, I was thinking of going up a size to 275/65r18 when my stock tires wear out...
  6. 20 inch wheels should be fine as long as you stick with the OEM size 275/55r20 but seeing as you have a 2" lift you could probably even go up to a 275/60r20 which would be roughly 33" tall.
  7. I know some people on here have put 275/60r20's on stock trucks and say it doesn't rub but I have 18's so I can't confirm that.
  8. Should work just fine! My roommate just put a set of '17 Silverado Z71 wheels on his 95 and they look great.
  9. Hey everyone, My friend just bought a 2019 Canyon Denali a few months ago and on a recent road trip we both noticed a squeak coming from the rear of the cab when going over bumps. He couldn't figure out where it was so I figured I'd try this forum to see if anyone knows where it might be coming from if anyone has dealt with this before. It sounds to me like it's coming from the rear seat behind the driver.
  10. I'm getting about the same with my 5.3. Honestly impressed by the fuel mileage on these trucks considering it's a v8. My 04 Dodge 1500 5.7 got about 10-12 city and maybe 14-15 highway so switching over to this truck and seeing these numbers impressed me. Also makes me want to keep my truck mostly stock because I'm sure MPG's will plummet if I start adding a level, heavier tires, etc.
  11. which struts do you guys recommend? 5100's or 6112's? I drive 85% highway/10% city and 5% off-road if that. I commute 80 miles a day and I'm looking for something that'll be comfortable on the freeway, hold up better than the ranchos, and be decent on washboard roads. Don't know if the 6112's are worth it for me with such little off-road?
  12. Anyone have any pictures of their truck with these tires? They look pretty good on tire rack, just wondering what they look like on our trucks.
  13. 1. Paint chips way too easily. After 1 year I have chips all over the bumper and hood. Love the Z71 look with the color matched front but think I'd go with chrome next time just because of the paint chipping so easy. 2. Shocks. Had one Rancho replaced at 6k because it was leaking pretty bad. I don't completely hate them but they seem too stiff sometimes and too bouncy at other times. 3. Z71 Skid plates. The front skid plates are cheap plastic and I already put a hole in one while driving down a rough dirt road. Will probably replace with the metal ones Chevy sells but they should come standard on the Z71 package. Overall though I love my truck and it is hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned. I'm genuinely happy to drive it every day and it never fails to put a smile on my face. Even catch myself looking back at it when I park a lot of the times. Definitely a proud Chevy owner.
  14. I own a 2018 Z71 and while bored I found myself looking through the specs for the new 2019 trucks and noticed that the ground clearance on these new models is almost an inch less than on the 2014-18's at about 8 inches unless you get the trail boss. Does this sound right? Just struck me as odd that Chevy would lower the ground clearance on these new models instead of raising it. My 18 sits pretty low as is at 8.9 inches of clearance and I want to level it and upsize tires eventually just to get the front off the ground a bit more. My only thought is that they're trying to upsell the 2 inch factory lift? Or is it for better mpg's? Any thoughts?
