  1. Haha, very true. I usually dont just take off immediately but there are occasions when I do.
  2. Transmission is fine and shifts smoothly. Everyone once in a while if I start up and try to leave too fast, it kicks only once. I didnt get the fluid changed though yet. Seats wise they are excellent. I have driven many trips with this truck some more than 3-4 hours and never felt the seats bothering me. Very comfortable and the leather is really easy to clean.
  3. I did this on my Trail Boss and did use the spring spacer. Looking back I would just skip it. It's only .25 inches and it did help the ride slightly but not worth the time it took to do it.
  4. Its more than that. The 2 inch lift is achieved through a whole different strut assembly along with different CVs, longer shocks that are Rancho, etc. More information can be found on the Chevrolet website.
  5. Thanks!! I think it's closer to a 35 hp increase
  6. Thank you! I did not get the performance package because I installed an electric cutout instead since I wanted a very loud truck with the option to push a button and make it stock quiet for trips. As for the quality, mine was built in Indiana but I believe the first few thousand trucks were subject to extra attention and inspections since they wanted a perfect launch. Thanks for the kind words and I wish you the best with your truck as well!
  7. Thanks!! With the lift, my speedo is currently off but between 11.5 and 14 city. Highway is around 16-18. Once corrected, I assume that the city will be around 13-15. I'm not noticing the need to fill up more frequently and my drive has remained the same so I think it's just the incorrect odometer showing a decline in city mpg when the average is calculated.
  8. Well guys, I finally broke 30,000 miles yesterday. It has been an amazing experience so far and I am very blessed to own this truck. Background: I special ordered my LT Trail Boss back in May 2018 and picked it up in September 2018. I have almost every option that you can order on it except the sunroof (would have delayed my production at the time). My truck was built the very first week of production (7/09/2018) and is one of only a small handful of Red Silverados, if not the only one, to receive the Gideon/Dark Atmosphere leather interior as that color was changed to not an option for Red Silverados on the second week of production. Within the first week or two of receiving it, I installed a custom Electronic Cutout System for my exhaust, Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33.5x12.5R20 mud tires, an Undercover Ultra Flex tonneau cover, and vinyl wrapped the scoop portion of my hood. Later on, I installed some cosmetic hood vents. Then, about two weeks ago, I installed the Trail Boss / AT4 specific ReadyLift +2” lift kit, giving me a total of 4” inches of lift. This allowed me to run 35x12.5s and I am loving the new taller stance of my truck more and more every day. Review: I have driven my Trail Boss all over the place, in a wide variety of conditions and never had any major issues. From -15 degree weather to over 100 degrees, this truck has performed excellent. The only two problems I have ever had (which are resolved) was a Bluetooth sync issue very early on for a few months and a random, once-in-a-blue-moon appearance of the ESC light only to have it go away at next start up. Both of these issues have been long gone now and I couldn’t be happier with the truck. If I had to make a list of my favorite options, it would be the Trail Boss trim level, Safety Package I, and Convenience Package II. In my opinion, the Trail Boss trim gives this Silverado a unique look and a tough image. The blacked-out appearance along with the “Trail Boss” name just emphasizes that this is one bad truck (in a good way). The Safety Package I has saved my skin so many times and in my opinion it is a must have. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert gives you advanced warning of vehicles/pedestrians that may cross your path as you reverse, and the Side Blind Spot detectors are a huge plus in giving you peace of mind when making a lane change. Furthermore, the Convenience Package II adds some nice creature comforts that I can’t really live without. The Bose stereo w/ subwoofer hits loud and crystal clear. The rear sliding window provides nice airflow in the summer months and the garage door HomeLink buttons are a nice touch. The one thing that I do not have because it was not available in 2019 on the Trail Boss is the 6.2 L. This is now an option for 2020 Trail Boss trims, and I am kind of upset that it wasn’t offered in 2019. I would not trade in my truck over this, but I really wanted the bigger motor. That being said, the 5.3 L in this new gen T1 truck is much quicker and more responsive than the 2018 and prior trucks. It may have to do with the weigh savings this new gen truck has, in addition to the new Dynamic Fuel Management system, which is seamless and unnoticeable. Whatever the reason, this truck has a lot of pep, even in 5.3 L form. Overall, I am very happy with this truck and the way it has performed, and I look forward to another 30,000 miles. Any questions just ask. Disclaimer: No one pressured me to write this review, nor did GM have any contact with me about it. This is my honest opinion on how I feel about the truck and I hope this review helps anyone thinking about buying one to make the right decision for them.
  9. No problem and thank you! If you have any other questions just ask.
  10. Spacers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XF3J1QZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share You dont have to use the block but your measurements dont sound right to me. The stock truck only has about 1.5 inches of rake not 3. After installing the full kit I only have 3/4 inch of rake left. It's not that noticable and I personally like that small rake to be able to use the back of my truck without it going nose high everytime. I would suggest double checking your measurements by measuring from the floor to the center of the fender.
  11. It would be exactly the same since the only difference between the non Trailboss and the Trailboss is a preexisting 2 inch lift. My kit lifted it another 2 inches for a total of 4 while the kit you want lifts a truck with 0 lift to 4". They should therefore be identical afterwards with 4 inches of lift each and the same wheel well openings, fenders, etc.
  12. Yes you can...I just did it on my Trailboss (4" total lift not 6). With no spacers, it fit great. I added spacers and had to trim the mudflap but I wanted that. Check out the post below and any questions, just ask.
  13. I added the spacers to make the tires stick out more to balance the look of the truck. In my opinion, if they remained under the truck how I had it previously and I lifted it to where it is now, it would look a little like it was on stilts. The spacers created a better looking stance for that height. I did have to cut a section of the front of the mudflaps out to clear the tires because of the spacers pushing them out farther. Without the spacers, the mudflap trimming isnt necessary, but I did remove the bracket behind the mudflap a while back already.
