So far, so good. I've only had it on for a couple of weeks so it really hasn't got dirty yet. It just sat outside during 2 days straight of constant rain with only minimal leaking as expected. I sprayed it with 303 fabric guard after I installed it to help it stay cleaner and repel water better, but I don't think the 303 was a match for the constant downpour we experienced this weekend as the fabric was pretty soaked through. But in no way did it leak at all in the center of the cover, just up by the cab as I expected it would between the cover and supplied weather stripping. It was really the only cover on the market that met my needs. I did't want to block rear visibility, so a trifold was out (Ultra Flex was at the top of my list). I also didn't want to take up bed space, so a retractable was out. My commercial mower would also probably damage a retractable as well without putting some sort of barricade in front of the canister which would take up even more room and add cost. The Sentry CT and the Bak Revolver X4 were the only two that met my needs and I preferred the black slats on the Sentry vs the raw aluminum on the Revolver to better match the blacked out theme of my truck when rolled up. The price of the Sentry CT was slightly better, $735 shipped vs $775 shipped. The Sentry also had a $75 mail in rebate as well to bring it down to $660 net. In fairness, I think Bak was offering a $100 rebate on the X4 which would have netted to $675. I am very happy with it so far, especially at the price that I paid. I came from a soft roll up that I had on my F150 before I got the Chevy, so I already preferred the roll up style covers. I had the Tyger soft roll up from Amazon which is/was an incredible value at $189. That cover is amazing for the price and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone on a limited budget. I ended up selling it to my neighbor for $100 before I traded the F150 in on the Chevy. I just wanted to get a higher quality hard cover on the Silverado since it is a much nicer truck than the particular F150 I had.
BbyDgital replied to fotomatt1's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI would definitely walk away from that deal ESPECIALLY if the $47k isn't OTD price. As others have stated, there are much better deals to be had on 2018s. Definitely shop around as you should at least be getting $12-13k off of MSRP before TTL.
Has anybody seen any updates in regards to the release of the 6112's? Last e-mail I have from Chas at MRT Motorsports on 11/8/2018 stated that he met with Bilstein at SEMA but they could not give them an ETA and that their production line has been severely backed up for the last 4 months. I'd really like to get the 6112/5160 combo for my truck once I am ready to buy new wheels. Has there been any talk of Bilstein releasing the 8112's for our trucks?
Unfortunately, I have had no luck getting a hold of them. Didn't feel comfortable placing an order with a company that was this hard to get a return message from. I was also curious about the color scheme of their coilovers. The pics that you posted of your set look like they are more of a gray color, but the pics on CST's site look like they they are black with silver coils. I actually prefer the gray, so that was another question that I wanted to clarify with them.
I’m trying to take advantage of this, but can’t get ahold of CST via email, phone, or facebook messenger. I’d like to get their front leveling coilovers and upper control arms, but don’t see any matching rear shocks on their site. Does anyone know if they offer a basic Dirt Series 2.0 shock non-resi to replace my stock Ranchos? Something exactly like the FOX 2.0 and Icon 2.0 non-resi shocks. The closest part number I could find on their site is the CSR-5530 but that is listed for the new 2019s only. On a side note, MRT and SDHQ have been very responsive to questions about other setups that I am pricing out. Right now I am leaning towards the Icon stage 1 and will add their delta joint UCAs.
