This is interesting. I am not towing a lot of weight. I would estimate about 3500 pounds or so. Of course it was enough weight to make the back drop less than a inch or so. I never thought about the inch from the weight plus the 1.5" the shackle dropped it. I have towed with several trucks before that were loaded down way more than this truck but the 19s might be more sensitive to angle changes.
Has anyone done any towing that has a 2" shackle installed? I towed for the first time and the back squated between a half inch to a inch and I have a slight vibration at 70 mph. It goes away if you go faster. I am assuming I might need to mess with the pinion angle. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
I installed those on my truck they worked fine. If you can take out the lifting block I would do that first though. My truck did not have a spacer. I'm assuming just the trail boss models do because the front is lifted.
I have had Gibson exhaust on previous trucks and they did not drone. I cant say for sure they were 100% drone free but they are not known for drone. They are a pretty tame exhaust. They did make a super truck exhaust that exited before the rear wheels that was louder and had some drone but their full length exhaust is much quieter. I have not heard a system on a T1 truck yet but I would assume they are similar to the previous yrs.
Summit has a little better price. They have $50 off when you purchase $500 or more. The bad news is they charge tax. It came out to be $725ish total after discount for the kit that does not include tips
I just ordered the Afe exhaust for the 6.2. It is a 4" inlet and dual 3" outlet. I figured you cant get much more flow than that. The price is decent at $725 attaching to the factory tips. They have other tip options available also.
I seriously considered this cover. My concerns were I feel like it could dent easily. It also sits a little higher on the bed rails than many of the other covers. Lastly is the way it folds down toward the front of the bed. It could make it hard to open with items in the bed. I do think it is a cool concept though.
