  1. Wow that looks higher than 4”.
  2. Shudder/Vibration Issue

    Dang it, my new 2018 GMC Denali with about 3,000 just started shuddering tonight on the highway at about 62mph. Dang. I love this truck but now I feel it has a disease. I guess I will call the dealer tomorrow.

    First snow in a couple of years here in suburban Seattle - got 10 inches last night! Got up early to get some pictures in the dark. (BTW, let me know if I am posting too much here...) Out on Novelty Hill Road at 7am - it should be a mile long bumper to bumper traffic, I stopped the truck got out and took a picture. Surprised that King County actually plowed this road. I think they have about 3 plows in the whole county. Snow in my 22s.

    Sorry, I think it only works for the bridges. You can’t use the luxury toll lanes. I think the discount is time dependent. It’s on the Good to Go site.

    Yes I will certainly be voting for the $30 tabs. Thankfully, I live 1 mile outside the RTA boundary so still only pay about $90 per car. If I lived in the RTA I would not have a 2018 Sierra but would still drive my 02 Suburban. I use Good to Go for the 520 bridge, I registered my plates on Good to Go - gives me a discount and automatic billing. I am not putting a tracking box on my vehicle - so I stay out of out the millionarie tool lanes. Love this state - hate the government - and it is getting worse and worse.

    It looks good. When I “level” my truck I want a little rake to remain. I have a 4 inch difference front to rear - that’s really bumming me out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We should get Tim Eyman to run a “no front license plate” initative. That would mess up all the tolling they have set up in the state. Fun times. When I got my new truck I ran it without plates till the very last day the temps expired. Loved running 520 and 405 “toll” lanes for free. I hate that they track us everywhere.

    Marymoor Park Number 2: 2018 GMC Denali with birch trees. Not as white or vibrant as Ansel Adams Aspen's. I need to come back here in the summer when the sun bleaches these out more white. Maybe a good subject for night light painting.

    Out at Marymoor Park in Redmond WA this foggy overcast morning. Wishing for the summer to come, which in the PNW is still a ways off.

    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.
  12. How did you do it - plastidip, vinyl?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
