  1. I can tell you what happens to them if you hit a muddy washout and there's a stump in the middle of it...hint...they break
  2. Anyone know of a legit way to find the current owner of a vehicle based on the VIN? All the ones I see online seem pretty sketch.
  3. 275/60/20 is a factory size and ends up being about the same size as the 270/70/18 depending on the tire. Shouldn't have any issue
  4. With that being the case, other than BDS and Zone which both get praise for the warranties..how much difference is there amongst the others, CST, Procomp, Superlift, Rough Country..etc..
  5. I've been reading and searching for 3 weeks and I believe I have the the answer...but I want to confirm or at least get differing opinions. A 3-3.5" leveling kit like the Zone, Cognito, or Superlift, that comes with new UCA are much less prone to breaking stuff and are a pretty good option if you just want to add slightly bigger tires like say a 295/60/20 or 35x11.50 but all require a different offset than the factory wheels...OR the best option would be to go with a full kit like the BDS, Zone, Procomp, etc some of which you can reuse the factory wheels which helps to offset the higher cost of the full lift, but require you to cut up your truck. I miss the days of swapping out torsion bar keys and doing a little cranking, swapping out the factory block for a 4" and calling it a day. Drove my 2001 Sierra like that for nearly 300K HARD miles with no issue.
  6. Did you have to use spacers to retain your factory wheels? Their website mentions 5.75 backspacing
  7. Did you ever get any info on this? Trying to find info on this one or the Zone 3.5 Adventure and coming up pretty thin.
  8. spent the long weekend up in Boone NC to play in the snow, got a little more than we bargained for lol
  9. “Petunia” as my daughter calls her, got some new wheels and tires. Next up to do something with the grayed out grill piece, thinking of taking it off and painting it instead of replacing the whole thing.
  10. I didnt even think of the lug nut covers...thats a great idea
  11. So I've tried searching but maybe I'm not using the right terms...I found some factory take off wheels and tires from a 2009 Tahoe that I am putting on my daughters 2002 Silverado, he wheels have the open end lug nuts that wont look right on the new wheels. I need the "acorn" style lug nuts but arent exactly sure what size.
  12. Someone the other day asked about the new Silverado's and how they compare to a different make of truck the OP currently owned, well that got me thinking...can you guys smell the smoke from there? If you could combine certain characteristics of any vehicle that you previously owned and combine them into a current and modern vehicle...what would they be and how would that look? Obviously everyone's idea of perfect is different, so I thought it might be fun to discuss, I'll go first. I'd take the off-road ability and solid axle front end from my old 79 Bronco, the 6.2 and 10spd transmission from my current Silverado, pair those up in a Stepside reg cab like my 2001 Sierra and have one heck up a play truck
