    Thanks. Outside Duvall on a short dirt road. Still looking at a level - probably Suspension Max. I think I will black it out first and then think about new wheels and tires. My current favorites are the GMC OEM 20x9 - 5 spoke black wheels you see on the Elevation Edition (just like Crazyjoker77's truck above). I really like how they look - simple, clean. Got any suggestions for a local shop in the Puget Sound to do the level - that they would know what they are doing with the Magnetic Ride?

    Out and about this morning.
  3. How did you do it - plastidip, vinyl?
  4. Yes, as the saying goes “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. I liked what you did with your truck, I wondered if just painting the chrome surround on the grill would look good - yours does. BTW do you have any better pictures of the front of your truck? Still trying to decide if I need to go with black wheels, I like your with the std 22” chrome wheels.
  5. Those are really nice. They are also very spendy $$$ at almost $600/wheel from GMC. Wow! I like my wheels but was trying to get away from 22" rims - I really want to get some 18" in an effort to get more rubber, but I really like the Method 605's and they only come in 20". They have a good size lip. Maybe 20" would be a good compromise.
  6. I have been playing in Photoshop with GMC's marketing image. To my taste, I really think the current truck has too much chrome. Trying to dial it back. I wanted to create more of a "midnight" version of my Denali without going full-black out (Murdered). Midnight Denali - Black Skid Plate, Blacken the chrome surround on the grill, black mirror caps, black door handles, back out the chrome step and black 20" wheels but may go with 18". I want to leave a little chrome - the center of the grill, the trim on the windows and maybe the door strip. Also, I want to pick up the red in the GMC logo with red tow hooks. This is what I am thinking, will probably put it together over the next couple of months. Here is the standard stock image, for comparison.
  7. Thanks. To be honest my truck was pretty dirty when I took these shots, I think it was a least 2 weeks since I last washed it. I really don't think you need to ensure it's perfect unless it is a bright sunny day and you are close to the truck with the camera. I am going to see how far I can push the truck being dirty and still having an acceptable picture.
  8. Is CST really relevant to this thread? I don’t think you can run this with the magnetic ride control. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I believe I took tire size into account. Remember, my truck is a Denali with the magnetic ride control suspension. That could be a difference - maybe it rides an inch lower? If so then you would have a level.

    Thanks for the advice, I will have to try that. I have to get my front raised up - my front air damn practically scraps the ground it is so dang low. Level or 4" lift is the question right now and removal of said front air damn.

    OK this is what I got compared to my stock 2018 Denali - you have a 3.5" lift on the front and 1.25" on the rear. Calculations: You have 33/12.5r20 tires, that puts your hub at 16.5". Front= hub to fender is 40-16.5 = 23.5" Rear = hub to fender is 41.5-16.5 = 25" My Stock Denali measures Front = 36 and Rear = 39 13/16 on 285/45 r22 - hub is at 16.05" Front = hub to fender is 36-16.05 = 19.95" - let's call it 20" Rear = hub to fender is 39 13/16 - 16.05 = 23.75" So you can see that your front is about 3.5" higher than my stock Denali and your rear is about 1.25" higher. So is that a Level or a 4" lift? What does everyone think? Comments?

    Happy New Year! This is about as close as I can get to mud around my area. Every road is gated off. Anyone in the Redmond Washington area know of some good back roads to take?

    You may be right. I guess we could ask @sean006 to measure the distance from ground to top of the wheel wells front and back? That should settle it.

    Love the stance of your truck. Looks like a level, it would be great to know. What tires are those -they look good/aggressive.
