  1. Very refreshing to hear someone have a sensible and positive outlook on a bad situation. I too just came down with the P25A2 code as well as U0146, U0100, U0101, P252A2 (pd), U0146 (pd) in my 19 Silvy with 22Kmi. I have had the transmission slip in and out of 1st and 2nd gear a few times (they re-flashed the module once already) with the last one (post re-flash) making a horrible gear grinding sound. Something I've NEVER heard from an auto transmission. Is it bad that in the event of the Zombie Apocalypse I'd still choose my 2005 Duramax with almost 400,000 mi. thats NEVER given me a problem or let me down (besides one dead battery...ever!) ??
  2. The whoops look a lot bigger from the drivers seat I live about 3 miles from the Pismo Dunes onramp. I hate taking my truck out there but it's the only good local testing spot for me.
  3. Not as it sits now. I didn't feel the need for them after my 65mph run down the whoops with some pretty good G-outs and thats about as far as I'd ever wanna take my Daily Driver truck anyways. Bump stops require cutting and/or welding on the frame and that's not something on my DD (also brand new truck) list.
  4. I would imagine soon as my truck confirmed the kits were good to go to production over a month ago. They currently have the upper control arms in stock & ready to go that you could pair with whatever shock setup you'd like and add the lower control arm later.
  5. Soon! Definitely needs 35's and I'll be going back to an All Terrain type tread. I like the looks of these mud'ish terrains but that's about it. They fling rocks that chip paint and don't like the wet as much.
  6. They didn't really add any noticeable adverse effects to performance (get-up & go). These tires are less than an inch larger than what came stock so just a little heavier and wider.
  7. Wow!! Looks like I'm SOL... They really tied that thing into some really important other stuff. Dangit, I was hoping for something like my DFM "kill switch" module that was a plug in and play type thing. I'm definitely not going to mess with airbags, speed sensors or steering assist. Thanks for the complete info! Cheers!
  8. You are correct on the U182's but I've seen and talked to some guys running that pack on their 19's. I have tried to reach out to Deaver for verification but, no dice. I guess if the eye-to-eye and spring rate matches the weight there's not much more to worry about.
  9. Yes, welding in a shock hoop does seem like too much work for a lift kit. I wanted a prerunner kit but also wanted a nice daily driver. This Baja Kits stock width kit checked all the boxes for me. No use in going with King 3.0's for a DD build. The BDS kit is just a basic "lift kit" with Fox shocks bolted on. The Baja kits is an actual performance kit that gives you more wheel travel, better articulation and stiffer components. A lift kit doesn't give any more performance other than ground clearance and actually makes your suspension more prone to deflection and bending. At the price of the BDS kit you might as well get a prerunner kit that improves the performance of your truck. Just my two cents though. I'm sure your truck will be badass either way.
  10. While out on a dirt road enjoying my newly installed prerunner suspension I successfully turned off the Traction Control and ESC (electronic stability control). Went for a run down the woops and ESC turned itself back on and applied the brakes during one of my drifts. COMPLETELY unexpected and caused the truck to handle undesirably (to say the least). In talking to another Chevy guy he said the ESC turns itself back on at 35mph and above!... Is there anyway to 'tune' this out and make it stay off when desired? This is exactly why I held onto my 05 Duramax for so long. It had ZERO 'nanny hardware' that would f*#k with me while offroading.

  12. Weld in shock hoops are for long travel (non OEM bolt up) coilovers. To supply the amount of wheel travel the suspension components offer, you need a longer stroke shock than can fit in the OEM mounting locations. That is why they re position the upper shock mount with a hoop. Theoretically both type of shocks should have the same valving technology so they should work the same, just one offers less travel. So for me, a longer stroke shock (using a shock hoop) would allow my suspension to droop too far and damage the suspension components. This OEM bolt up King has a droop limiting feature built in already so I don't need to use limit straps. Hope this makes sense for you.
  13. A local truck accessory shop. They are a super common part you can find on Amazon, Ebay or your local wheel & tire shop should carry some.
  14. Yes there are with your typical long travel kit. I purposefully didn't want to extend anything and keep the stock geometry, steering, driveshafts, etc.
  15. I haven't cycled it and neither did Baja Kits get back to me about that question. I figure it'll be posted on their website whenever they release the kit.
