  1. Cracked windshield on a 35 mph road from the car passing me on the other side of the road. It hit by the edge of the A pillar and was across my windshield by the time I left work 4 hours later. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I came from Flowmaster on my 2015 5.3, went to the Borla S Type on my 2020 AT4 5.3 with the 10 speed. By comparison, barely any drone whatsoever with Borla relative to Flowmaster. Running a Corsa Sport on my 2007 H2 6.0. It has zero drone relative to the Borla S Type. Drone really is relative and will be much more apparent if you are accustomed to running stock.

  3. First time trying Elmer T Lee this weekend. Hard on the budget, but it was cool to give it a try. Very smooth. Almost too smooth. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Yeah, you’ll love it. And thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I agree. Just recently opened a bottle of this myself. I also had the pleasure of having Knob Creek’s single barrel reserve, aged 9 years. 120 proof, but it still tastes smooth and delicious. Expensive, so this one is only for special occasions, but it was a pleasure to try out. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Oil filter internals - comparison Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I do my own, both oil and filter every 5k. Mobil 1 full syn and the recommended AC Delco filter. I also use an app to track all maintenance, with receipts, in case it is ever called into question. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. 2020 AT4 5.3 / 10 speed with 15.7k miles. Purchased in December 2019. Love this truck and will keep it. But it’s hard to say whether I would buy it again because it depends on what else is in the market. For example, I just put a reservation on a 2021 Ferd Br0nc0, so technically I did not buy it again. But that is not because I have any issues with it at all - just the opposite. Blows my 2015 All Terrain out of the water. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I do a before lift light height check against my garage door, use painters tape to mark the height of the beam, then I do an after and dial my light level down to the original beam height. It’s not a perfect method, but I do not get lights flashed at me for being too bright after that adjustment. Since you already have the level on and no reference for the “before” height, if you are not getting flashed by people and you have good visibility at night with your current adjustment, you might be okay. But honestly, since I did not really take any measurements and just worked visually with a reference line, I am not sure how much adjustment your setup might create. The other factor is how level your driveway is and how close you are to the garage door. Closer you are, the less the adjustment appears just because of proximity to the light. Same premise as sighting something in - a quarter inch off at the sight might be 6” off at 25 feet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Lifted trucks can be a problem when installers do not adjust the headlights or inform the owners that they need to be adjusted. I’ve now lifted 4 of my last 4 vehicles between 2.5”-4.0” and had to lower headlight trajectory every time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Also consider resale. Many people spending high dollars for style over function will not keep it that long, because they want the next best thing when it comes out. The used market is great for high end packages as many people that can’t afford them first time around then overpay on the used market. So when folks are swapping out a Denali for something new, trade in/resale helps a little. Of course, it’ll never completely justify the jump in price... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. That’s exactly what I was hoping to learn. Thanks LA, the really helps. Appreciate it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. 2020 AT4, 5.3L/10 spd, ReadyLift SST +2” with UCAs. I am thinking of upgrading my Ranchos to Bilsteins. While I’m at it, can I go another inch higher with my kit, getting to a total of 5” (2” AT4 package factory lift, 2” ReadyLift, 1” adjustment on the Bilsteins)? I sit exactly level now with the stock blocks in the rear, so if I add 1” upfront and put the ReadyLift blocks in the rear, I will still sit level. I have no reason to do this other than I love working on my truck and making it personalized. So this is just for a fun and aesthetics factor. I am running 33x12.5x20 wheels currently, and if I added the inch, I would likely go 35x11.5 or 35x12.5 depending on clearance. I don’t want to sacrifice ride quality, but I’m thinking it would improve with the Bilsteins. https://www.bilsteinlifts.com/shop/chevy-gmc/silverado-1500/2019/bilstein-b8-5100-rha-0-1-1-front-lift-shocks-for-2019-2020-gmc-sierra-1500-2wd-4wd/ Any advice or thoughts?
