  1. I just removed a set of hakkapeliitta 7suv studded off my rims in 275/60R20.
  2. I swapped to my winter wheels/tires between the 1st and 2nd attempt and it made no difference.
  3. Got it sorted out. Took the dealership 3 tries to get the alignment right. Last one they just adjusted the toe
  4. So i booked my 19 AT4 in for an alignment since i removed the lift kit and went with bilstein 5100’s for a regular sierra (multiple reasons why i dont want the lift kit and why i went with a at4). So brought it in and first thing that pissed me off was they didnt give me a spec sheet. After asking for it i got it but they didnt record the before spec. So i leave, noticed the steering wheel is slightly turned to the left when going straight and if i straighten it, it pulls right. I called the dealership to rebook to get it fixed. Dropped it off and picked it up today. Got a call its fixed and the tech took it for a test drive. I pick it up and its still not fixed. I am taking the roads crown into effect but its still messed up and wasnt before i brought it in for the first alignment. So here I am, waiting for them to get the foremen to go for a test drive with me and see where we go from here. I was gonna do it myself but quickly realized there is no drag link on these electronic steering systems. what is the issue here? Is adjusting the toe the only way to align the steering wheel with the wheel now?
  5. The thing is you see posts about all the failures but you dont see all the posts with no failures. I am at 52,200kms and haven't had any issues
  6. Funny, i have a AT4 and just installed bilstein shocks front and rear and removed the life kit. I installed base sierra cv axles in the front. The length is the same but the housing part that goes into the diff is slightly smaller.
  7. Did anyone say they cant afford the fuel? Does worrying or curious about the fuel economy mean you cant afford the truck? I guess my bank account didnt realize that. Dumbest thing i have ever read. Would you rather a truck that gets decent fuel economy or a truck that you have to fill up every 100miles on a long trip?
  8. Look in your fender area, there is no air flow in there and its not sealed off from the engine bay, so its sucking in cold air from the factory snorkel and hot air from the fender. If there was cold air coming in through the fender and it was blocked off from the engine bay, it would be great.
  9. As i mentioned above, s&b isnt a true enclosed as its sucking hot air from the fender.
  10. my 2019 ram with a afe intake had a outline on the padding under the hood from the intake box. So you can defiantly tell it was sealed.
  11. yea i live in alberta so temps are on the cooler side. If anything, sucking in abit of hot air from the engine bay will help when its -40*c. The afe intake i have sure does let the engine growl.
  12. I’m no expert but the s&b intake design is less efficient at being a “cai” then stock. The extra intake ports on the side to grab air from the fender, but there is no air flow there, nor is the engine bay sealed off from that section. Looks like it draws in more hot air from the engine bay then a open box housing.
  13. Yes, i rarely go off road so no need for AT tires. That being said, i picked these continental tires up for cheap and they suck. 10 ply, LT tires, heavy, solid and loud as hell. Will be replacing them after the winter.
  14. 8000+Km trip from Edmonton, Alberta to St Thomas, Ontario with some day trips in between. Truck did pretty good overall. Except for the cel that popped up just over 1000kms from home. Stopped at a dealership to get the code read and it was camshaft position sensor. I am hoping it has nothing to do with a lifter failure. I was stretching my oil change, normally do them every 10,000km and just did it this morning which was 12,495kms since the last one, oil life meter was at 0% for like 500km. I have the 6.2L but ran 87 octane and more then a few times did wot pulls to pass traffic, that was 1000km + before the code popped up so not sure if that has anything to do with it. Fuel economy overall was 11.2L/100kms with avg speed around 115kmh Emptied my JLT catch can when i got to my buddies place in St Thomas and it was completely filled when i emptied it this morning. Maybe the cause of the code? What happens when a catch can is full?
  15. Its mainly semi trucks that are flashing me. Had a bunch last night, even though they clearly seen me turn my high beams off when they came within range/sight of my lights.
  16. Get my headlights adjusted…gee, why didnt i think of that.
  17. Not the dot, didnt notice there was one honestly. But from the middle of the housing, which was 44”. Placed a line of painters tape on the wall, 44”” from the ground, backed up 25ft, put the middle of the hot spot for each light on the tape. I didnt aim left to right though. as for ripping the lift out. Only 2 trims had the options i wanted, the denali or at4. The denali was 24k more and had a ****** load of chrome that i hate. I dont care for lifted trucks, prefer lowered honestly. I have a back injury from the military and my sciatic nerve hates me most days. So getting in and out of the truck with the 2” is more of a challange. With my winter wheels and tires, the shark fin antenna doesnt clear my garage, it will once i remove the front lift. My bike also bottoms out when loading it in the bed. So dropping it will make it easier getting it in and out.
  18. The truck doesnt have a caroline squat. Rear still has just over 1 inch gap more then the front. I know how to align headlights, its not my first time doing headlights. And yes, ill be a douche if you blind me for no ****ing reason, ill blind you back.
  19. Anyone else keep getting flashed at night? Currently on a long trip, going through Ontario and we (wife is driving at the moment) keep getting flashed by on coming traffic. Low beams on only, dont even have fog lights on. I’m in the process of removing the factory lift kit out of my AT4 for various reasons. The rear is lowered on bilstein shocks, fronts are back ordered. I did aim my headlights before we left eince the ass end is sitting lower. Center of the low beams is 44” from the ground and backed 25’ from the wall and got them aimed perfectly. The on coming traffic quickly release they ****ed up when we give a quick flash back with the 6 light mod and mirror lights to high beam (so low, high, fogs and mirror lights).
  20. Open box =loud as **** close box intake =loud drop in filter = quiet since a drop in filter will still have the big chamber in front of the throttle body, it will kill all the noise. I just installed a afe magnum stage 2 intake and the engine is loud as ****.
  21. im assuming the trail boss uses the same as the AT4? I ordered base/elevation 5100’s for my AT4 since im removing the lift kit and lowering my truck. Took over a month to the the rear shocks. Been waiting 2 months for the front and was originally told end of July, beginning of August. Now eta is end of August. Placed it through Essex Bilstein Canada. They get them from Bilstein USA.
  22. I too traded my 19 Ram 1500 sport in for my AT4 and dont regret my decision one bit. What i do regret is wastinf money on thst Ram. I had a 2016 Ram with air ride suspension that kept shitting the bed every winter. So i traded it in for the 2019,ram which does look amazing but was the biggest piece of ****** ever. Spent more time at the dealership then on the road. Finally said **** it and made the jump. Love my AT4, doesnt look as nice imo but performs better and has better features. You will love the Denali.
  23. I didnt know what problems, if any, I would run into if i didnt change out the axles. It's in the part list for the factory lift kit, so thats why I changed it. And eventually i might go lower, doubt it, but at least the option is there. At least now its easier to get into the truck with my sciatic nerve going crazy and my motorbike doesnt bottom out on the ramps when i load it into the bed. i usually keep oem parts so whenever i decided to get rid of it, i can put it back to stock and sell whatever aftermarket parts I have. Dealerships wont give you a penny when you trade in for the aftermarket parts but they will up charge when they sell it. Learned that when i was trading my 370z in for a SRT-10 Ram. Wouldnt give me anything for my intake and exhaust but tried to up charge the SRT-10 because it had a intake and exhaust on it.
