  1. Weird MPG

    I usually leave it on the 25 to see what the most recent is. I have trip A set for life time and then trip B I use for my oil change intervals.
  2. Wow that looks good. What tires you running? Is that the RC 5"? IM getting that installed on the 20th. What's your roof height/ clearance?
  3. Nah you just lucky Haha. Pretty sure I found mine the first day I had it cause I have a tendency to break shit and accidentally pulled up on those when i was trying to remove the little rubber part ccause it had crumbs in it. Little did I know I didnt break and and actually found a hidden compartment
  4. Yea my old 2016 Ram had nothing. I had to keep it in the flip up center console and hope for the best. Access wise it was faster to get to but would be easily stolen. My 15 silverado perfectly homes my Glock 19 in its IWB holster. I love it.
  5. Weird MPG

    Yeah whenever I switch over to the mpg (which btw I hate that it doesnt stay up or read out with the speedometer) it's usually in v4 mode. Some of it probably is the winter fuel blend and cause I use my remote starter all the time
  6. This is my first silverado but not my first truck or vehicle. 2015 LT double cab 4.3l with the active engine cylinder shutdown. I notice that my MPG fluctuated and changes a ton. For example on long trips when on highway I usually lock in cruise around 70 mph and I can get anywhere from 25-28 mpg depending on traffic and weather. In the city I get anywhere from 12 to 18 mpg. I am not a speeder and not someone who launches off the line. I've only owned it for a month now but I feel like I really bounced all over. Am i the only one?
  7. Not sure if your truck has it... but in my 2015 LT I discovered by mistake that if you pull up on the cup holders they remove and have a huge open compartment. I use it to "hide" my handgun. I generally just leave it in there cause from looking at it youd never suspect they pull out. If a thief is looking they will be going quick and hit Glove box and center console. Is it secure? Sort of. But I find it to be super convenient and useful. Plus it's not obvious that you have it so walking by no one going to want to break in.
  8. Yup exactly why they are going to add the rear spacers to keep the tires the same.
  9. Yeah I was considering the 3.5 but saw the angles and said no. If this wasnt my DD I would have done it. But this is my long term DD I wanted to do it right once. Yup going to do the rear spacers (see above post). From what I've seen and a lot of the shops I've seen RC is putting out good lifts now. Plus have a great warranty also. Saw a truck online that they did a video on after the 5" kit and the angles were super flat and it looked really good.
  10. I am going with the knuckle kit. Shouldnt have to trim any metal. But good advice
  11. Alright guys this is what I landed on. Ended up deciding in the rough county 5" knuckle lift. It's going to be the perfect middle group between 4" and 5". Still allows me to be under 7 foot. Going to throw in the 2" rear wheel spacers to match the stance. Decided to change to falken at3w tires also. 305/65/18. Trucks going to be going under the knife on the 20th. Price is pretty good in my opinion. $4500ish out the door. I also talked to them about trimming and stuff and they are very knowledgable about avoiding trimming and just pushing the liner back if needed if it even rubs. I feel comfortable with this shop theyve been in business 35 years and all their reviews seem very positive unlike the other shop. Was very knowledgable on the phone and wasn't trying to sell me another kit or sell me expensive stuff. He wanted me to have what I want and provided unbiased info. Plus they are throwing a loaner truck in for free for the 2 days they'll have my truck which saves me some money. Quotlll Bradenf18.pdf

  13. Got this cost breakdown. What you guys think? Kit price is good, tire and wheels are actually pretty good too. Thoughts? I have another shop in mind but they keep jacking me around trying to find tires and rims they'd be maybe a little cheaper but they arent a "4x4" shop. They are just a performance shop. brandon.pdf

  15. I totally get it. I considered asking my work if there is a lot I can park in instead but I already walk like a mile to the hospital so ain't trying to walk any furtherHaha. I do think 4.5" and 33s will get me the right lift and look and height. I going with 20x10 and -24 I decided.
