  1. Neither, get your bed sprayed if it's not already and get a nice glossy finish. Tool box you lose a foot minimum of your bed (if you have a crew cab you now have a 4 Foot bed) and a cover you lose the functionality of having a bed in the first place. Not to mention they just look better without either... buy some coilovers with the money if you want something to improve your truck...
  2. What about wheel spacers? And how is that alignment with the stock UCA's. Thanks again for answering all these questions and the pictures. Makes the decision that much easier.
  3. Sick truck truck man. That looks great. You have any shots from straight on or from behind? Why did you go with 35's instead of 37's? Any idea if 37's would fit? Thanks again, exactly what I was looking for and it looks badass! Any regrets or things you'd do differently size wise? Lift height/tire size?
  4. Its a good question because that plastic is so soft and scratches real easily. I'm guessing the answer is to detail that area as often as possible and wet sand the scratches if they are that deep and use some sort of restoration spray/cream. I try to keep my vehicles as immaculate as possible but certain things are a lost cause IMO. I'll never understand why they used such soft plastic on the doors and door sills other than it being really nice material. Just scratches too easy.
  5. Anyone have pictures of a 6" lift with stock 20's or even 22's. You have to run wheel spacers? Aftermarket UCA's? What tires are you running? How bad do you rub? Able to fit 37's? Re-gear? What lift? Really want to keep the stock wheels as I like them better than any aftermarket wheels, but I literally haven't seen one person running this setup. Why not? Again, I don't know a ton about lifts on these half tons so TIA.
  6. Oh no question. You mine as well have flashing poser sign stamped on your forehead. People pay a lot of money to have their trucks look like roller skates. But I've always thought that these trucks needed at least a 6" lift. Just would want big tires and small 20 or less rims to fill out the wheel wells. 10" lift with some nice coilovers, 10-12.5" wide beadlocks and 37" or 40" tires and a re-gear and to me that is the best one of these half tons can look, just haven't seen it done. Would love to see some pics of that setup and McGaughy's and Cognito are the only two companies I'm aware of that manufacture a lift "kit" that size for these trucks...

  8. It would look good with different wheels/tires. I like less rim and more tire. Put on some 37's on 20's 10-12 wide and it'd look badass. Agreed though, that looks dumb with the squat and non-functional wheel-tire setup.
  9. anybody have this kit installed yet? What do you have it set at and what wheel/tire combination are you running and what kind of rubbing? Why does everyone on here run BDS over McGaughy's? And what shocks/struts are you running? That thing with a set of coilovers looks like the ticket to me, but I'm not super familiar with half ton lifts but don't want to be bolting some garbage on my 50 thousand dollar truck. Thoughts? McGaughy's McGaughy's 9" on a 2018
  10. Anyone ever figure out the part numbers? Want to color match my door handles on my SLT but the only set I can find is $500+. That can't be right... hopefully. Need White Frost ones.
  11. Easy there killer. Not that absurd of a question at all since they both essentially do relatively the same thing. Leaf springs are much stiffer since truck beds are made to be loaded and carry more weight but it creates a much harsher ride than a coil spring. Was just wondering if there was some kind of adaptive aftermarket kit, but now I know. LMAO, have a nice day. That's kind of what I figured. Thanks man...
  12. First of all I am extremely grateful for this forum and have already have acquired a wealth of information and have learned so much about how I want to build out my ''19 1500 SLT. I love the truck and I came from a built out Toyota 4Runner that I totaled off-roading and really got a lot out of the offload capabilities of that vehicle. Blessed to be alive but that's a different story for a different day. I laughed when I saw that they put Rough country Struts and Shocks and am looking to upgrade the whole suspension ASAP. The BDS lifts look nice with the fox Coilovers (wish there was a was to get ICONS and open to other suggestions) and plan on going with a 6" but I am not a fan of leaf springs whatsoever. Is there any way without major fabrication to change those to rear coils without performing major surgery? Or would it wander too much with coil springs anyway?
  13. The truth is that the chrome is a pain in the a$$ to sand down to the point where a primer will adhere. It will take 4 hours or so just to sand down the front bumper and it is a really messy job. That is why most body shops don't want anything to do with it. However, those that say it can't be done are clueless. If you sand it down well enough it's no different than painting a black bumper as far as longevity of the paint is concerned. I plan to paint my front and rear here in due time but make no mistake it is a hell of a lot of prep work and I can't imagine most body shops would be willing to do all of the prep work themselves. Here is the best video I have ever seen of anyone doing it... Color Matching Chrome
  14. I fully agree on the black plastic fender flares. I have an SLT and have color matched flares and I forget that even the Denali's come with black flares stock. That is kind of a joke. But the shape of the flares looks fine IMO. You like the front end on the Silverado. You say the GMC looks like its frowning but you like the feminine looking Silverado front end? I always thought Denali's were the best looking trucks but that every other trim of the Silverado's were better looking trucks until this gen. I mean to me it's not even close, but hey beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Chevy's are notoriously the more "affordable" truck even though they are virtually identical in price these days, and have much more of a brand following than GMC and as a wise man once told me, "everyone loves their own brand." To each his own.
