  1. HID question

    I use the D2S 4.0 kit with Hyluxtek ballasts. No need to connect to battery. Runs off factory headlamp plugs. Also daytime running lights are just normal full headlight.
  2. Did you disconnect the battery before working on your truck? I'd triple check to make sure the terminals have a tight, solid connection.
  3. Personally, I don't think a muffler delete sounds good at all. Replace your muffler with a performance muffler of your choice and delete the resonator. Generally speaking, the larger muffler you install, the quieter it will be.
  4. Without winter, there would be much less appreciation for summer. Watching other people suffer from the cold brings me joy hehe. Bundle up and be prepared! I could do without the salt on the roads, but there's something about driving a 4x4 truck through the snow. Great acoustic dampening as well after a couple inches has fallen.
  5. From GMPartsDirect.com: $35.32, $37.85, $81.93 and $92.21 but I think shipping is extra. Unless you can find some pulled from a Silverado, those are around the prices you'll be paying.
  6. I upgraded my 14 Sierra with Morimoto D2S 4.0 projectors with 5500K bulbs and they are AWESOME. The retrofit wasn't hard, did both headlights on a Saturday. Also got the Morimoto LED fog lights and it matches perfectly. Cost me around $500 for full HID retrofit AND LED fogs, which is fair considering what an upgrade it is.
  7. winter driving

    I have 4x4 here in Michigan but I find I rarely need to use it even in the winter. I've never used extra weight in my bed even on the stock SR-A's and I've been fine the past 4 winters in 2wd 95% of the time.
  8. With your truck turned off, pump your brake pedal until it's firm and hold it there. Start your truck while still holding the pedal down and if the pedal doesn't move forward or get softer once the truck is started, then you have bad brake booster. It could also be your ABS kicking in at lower speeds. This is usually caused by rust buildup around the wheel speed sensor causing it to move, giving a false signal to engage ABS.
  9. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    Thanks! Bilstein 5100's(front on 3rd setting, rear is stock height). Stock UCA's. Bilstein claims this is a 1.25" lift in the front, but I have a feeling it was just a bit more. I did get some rubbing on the factory mudflaps so I took a dremel and trimmed the insides just a bit. No rubbing now.

    275/60/r20 Duratracs
  11. Bilstein shocks thread

    3rd height setting and stock rear with 275/60/r20 Duratracs. I had to trim my factory mudflaps on the insides just a bit.
  12. It's been raining here in Michigan alot lately so please excuse the dirty truck! Upgraded from 18's to 20" honeycomb brushed aluminum replicas. 5100's all around(front on 3rd setting) The GMC centercaps fit a bit loose on the replicas so I'm going to use some clear RTV silicone to seal them in place once the weather clears. Finally got rid of my factory SR-A's and replaced them with fresh 275/60/r20 Duratracs..winter is coming Edit: The tires rubbed on the way home from the shop. I had to take my Dremel to the factory mudflaps to do some trimming on the insides.
  13. I agree servicing trans early is not a waste of money. These trucks have their weak links and the trans seems to be one of them.
  14. Tire rotation

    You are correct.
  15. My 5100's came in the other day and no rain today so I went to install, but then I noticed the rust(after 4 years and 33k miles)... This is gonna take awhile and yes, it's as fun as it looks! I'll spray everything down with Krown rust protection when I'm done.
