    Thank you On a 1/2 ton?

    sorry, I cant find which lift you are running. I see the pic of your red truck (nice) but couldnt find the lift brand and specs.

    Yeah, removing the lower valance (air dam) is a no brainer. I heard that guys lost some MPG. While that seemed possible in theory (aerodynamics), it did not turn out to be the case. The simplest way to improve aesthetics of these trucks and gives you better approach angle ground clearance.

    I’ve heard mostly good things about fabtech and a lot of bad things about RC. If I were going to modify suspension dramatically, especially geometry, I would not get the cheapest kit out there. No offense to you Folks running RC. If it works for you, shake and bake!
  5. Nice. I have Michelin LTX AT2 on my wife's sequoia and those do quite well in any road conditions and not too bad on light off road as well.

    I love the 17”. I think my 18” are even too big.
  7. I think 35x12.5 is pretty common with a level but those look good. Mine is not leveled. I like the rake. What tires are you running?
  8. I’m with you. I chose to stay under 295 because any wider and you drop load range E2 (essentially load D). All 305’s/12.5 and wider are E2. The MTZ P3 are 129 index and 4080 lbs at 80 PSI. Just where I want for towing.
  9. I see a lot of guys spending good money on lifts/levels to run 33x12.5 on their 1500. I think the extra money was well spent on a 3500 vs saving money on a half ton and modding suspension later. No offense to my 1/2 ton brethren. I was very surprised that a 34.5x12 would fit on a bone stock 3500.
  10. 295/70/18 fit on my ‘17 3500 SRW BONE STOCK. No trim. No rub. I did already remove the lower valance but I don’t think that would’ve touched anyways. You’ll have to disregard a lot of the posts on this site, because they are talking about 1500s. Our 3500s sit higher. My Mickey T MTZ P3 Measure at 34.5 x 12. It looked great, fit on the stock rims, and retain OEM geometry.
  11. Ride Height -- Stock

    Sure man. Here's my VIN: 1GC4KZCG8HF164985. Let me know what turns up. I dont mean to sound like a broken record, but I just truly dont understand the choice to lift 4.5" to fit 305/55/20. Those tire would fit on my truck with plenty of clearance. That is, unless my stock springs are the reason I clear 34.5x 12. Maybe my 295/70/18 wouldnt fit most stock rigs. I'm not meaning this to be at all insulting. I truly dont understand. Even the jump to 35x12.5 only gives an extra 1/2" of width and 1/2" of height. As for ride quality, I have no complaints so far. When hard cornering, you can feel the lugs biting in. That probably explains why these MTZ P3 handle thick snow and even some ice like I was on dry pavement. But going straight or light turns is like stock. A bit more road noise from the tread. But no unpleasant mannerisms yet
  12. Ride Height -- Stock

    My springs lift it higher than other '17 Silverados. I was surprised my tires fit stock
  13. Ride Height -- Stock

    Ive been wondering this too. My '17 3500 sits high enough to fit 295/70/18 (34.5x12) with no lift or level on stock wheels.. That surprised me. I see guys running lifts in order to fit 33x12.5. There's got to be an explanation. Either mine sits taller than other (1500?) or people are spending money unnecessarily.

    My stock tires were 265/70/18. I went to a 295/70/18 without a lift or level. I suspected that stock setups varied from year to year and model to model. Nice truck man!
  15. 2014+ Suspension Lifts

    Not tryng to be a jerk but arent those almost the exact same height and width of the stock tires?
