  1. well not exactly what you're asking for but pretty similar! I have a 2020 Silverado 3500 Duramax SRW Standard Bed and I'm hauling a 42' 5th Wheel, when all loaded up the trailer is about 19-20k lbs. It's a toy hauler so that keeps my pin weight down to safe levels for the SRW. When loaded with toys in the garage which is almost always, a SXS, my pin weight is about 2600-2700 lbs. I just finished a long trip, left Oregon in December and went to Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California. It handled everything like a champ! The Duramax definitely had no power issues. Oh, I'm also not using the standard 5th wheel kingpin and hitch in the bed. I installed a Gen-Y Gooseneck conversion hitch and I absolutely love it. also frees up the bed of the truck and I never have to worry about removing the hitch to get my bed back.
  2. $1750 / OBO Like new set of 4 Chevy Silverado High Country 20" wheels with like new 275/65R20 tires. About 500 miles on tires Tires are Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT Wheels came off a brand new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Bolt pattern on wheels is 8x180 No TPMS Sensors This wheel size should fit most Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500/3500, they haven't changed the bolt pattern in many years. Local Pickup available in Portland, OR
  3. Front Coilovers and rear shocks still available. you help me I'll help you these are taking up space on my floor
  4. Do it! Haha, that’s my words of encouragement. I think the height and look is absolutely perfect. Yes it will fit, I’ve been running it just fine. I also just got done hauling the 5th wheel across 4 states over the last 3 1/2 months just fine. Not sure if you saw but all I had to trim was very minor and you can’t even tell. Happy to help answer anything else but I can assure you it will fit. Well, I’ll say 99% sure based on the fact that your Denali has a slightly different wheel well profile than the Chevy. But that wouldn’t make it not work, just different trimming at worst.
  5. Thanks for posting this up, expensive but definitely the cleanest option! I’m thinking about it
  6. Heck yeah man nice work! Yeah the noise isn’t bad at all. I take my dog everywhere with me and she doesn’t even mind it when she’s sitting on the back seat and the compressor kicks on.
  7. Hey thanks man, I appreciate it. It’s honestly been perfect, not a single issue and I’m happy with the locations of everything as well. I was kinda thinking the same as you at first with the heat build up but I’m not concerned at all now. First co soldering it’s only running when air is needing to be supplied which probably isn’t for hours on end. The longest use of constant supply I use it for is filling up an inflatable paddleboard which is just over 5 min straight and it doesn’t get anywhere near too warm where I’d be concerned. Other than that, filling up tires or adjusting the air bags is barely long enough to build up any heat. I also really like having the quick disconnect in that footwell near the bed, if I were to do it all over again I’d put it in the exact same spot. It’s so convenient. There was no grommet where I drilled to exit the cab, I drilled a new hole large enough for the air line and put one of those cable glands there to keep water out. Let me know if you have any other questions!
  8. I did half of that, I dropped the front an inch but instead of my original plan to swap the 2” block with a 1” block I simply removed the block entirely, so right now the rear is factory height. I do however plan to still install the 1” block but since I have air bags I believe I’ll need to add some type of limit strap so I Don’t over extend them. (I had a 2” air bag spacer with the 2” block). Btw, I didn’t necessarily have any clearance issues with the 2” block, it just caused the 5th wheel a little nose high and I was experiencing some bucking issues so wanted to level it out more to see if it helped (which it didn’t haha). I was comfortable with the bed clearance with the 2” block though.
  9. This is great info, it’s been driving me nuts not being able to view my trailer tires. I already have my TPMS installed, did it a different way, had to strap them to a band around the wheel inside. I will first simply try without the license plate to see if that gives me any better results but I imagine I may need to extend the antenna as you did.
  10. has anyone installed these on longer trailers? I have a 42' 5th wheel, triple axle, I can read the front left tire fine, the left middle takes a little longer but reads, the left rear I can't get to read and it times out.
  11. Thanks for all the comments so far everyone! I had to head out of turn for work and was crazy busy but back to normal life again. I’ll check out these options to see if I can make something work. I know 24v alternators exist, and dual alternators on these trucks exist, so just need to find the right application for my project
  12. Congrats!! I would recommend you tow something and enjoy that power [emoji23] Looks good, picked up my first diesel less than 6 months ago and have absolutely loved it
  13. Basically bronze-ish, they call it DDT (Double Dark Tint) http://www.fueloffroad.com/wheel/12402/fuel-1-piece-wheels-blitz-d674/
  14. Yeah I think you have a small chance of it clearing but it will be VERY close. For reference back to my setup, my tires are an inch wider and my offset pushes the tire out an inch further, so that means I'm about 1.5" pushed to the outside than your setup would be. This would make clearance more in your favor. However, with that being said, I know a lot of people don't like or want to trim, but the trimming I had to do looks pretty darn good. for the front of the wheel well, you'd never know it was trimmed, and the only way you'd notice the mud flap is if you were looking directly at the inside of it from 2' away. And worst case scenario, if you wanted to revert it back, buying a new mud lap would be an easy and inexpensive item. I also didn't trim any part of the mud flap that would be visible from the exterior so that it still looked factory.
