  1. It'd be nice to fit a 35 under there even if it's completely worn out.
  2. The past 4 vehicles I've owned I purthased the warranty. 2 of them I did not use any part of it and was refunded the unused portion when they were traded. The other 2 have more than paid for themselves. 1 was on a Wrangler and the other is on my current '16 Sierra Denali. On the Denali is has paid for the lifter/fuel injector/VLOM/pushrod repair but would not cover the wonderful Magneride shocks. I'm mostly just concerned about the powertrain on these things that I know is over my head to repair. I need to find me a '78 Blazer that I can work on myself.
  3. OMG!!! I just went through the exact same thing starting 3 weeks ago. Dealership eventually replaced all right side lifters and injectors, VLOM, 1 pushrod (not all 8), various gaskets, oil, etc. Dealership had it 2 weeks. During the first test drive after initially replacing 2 injectors and a lifter the pushrod broke. My symptoms were exactly the same except that I hadn't heard the ticking noise for very long at all. 2016, Denali, 6.2 with 56,1xx miles... and thank goodness for the extended warranty.
  4. My son has beat the daylights out of his and they have performed excellent everywhere, however we're in Texas and we haven't had snow in a long time so we can't provide feedback on that.
  5. I have them on my son's Jeep also. For 1/2 the price of all the other 35's if they last 1/2 as long I'm not out any more money. They are definitely quieter than any other M/T tire that I have been around. If I had to guess put the life on his at about 22-24K mi. and granted, he's certainly not easy on tires.
  6. How well are your devices charging? I installed the charging pad into my '16 Denali and it seems to trickle at best. If not using the phone (iphone 8 plus) it will very slowly add charge to the battery but if its being used for maps the charge drops but not as quickly as if not connected. If I run Waze, that's a joke; the charge doesn't even begin to keep up. Am I just expecting too much?
  7. The seat coolers in my '12 Avalanche were amazing especially in Texas, the '16... not so much. I can feel it if I sit in a certain position but that doesn't last long.
  8. When I purchased my '16 in February I had the same issue at 46k miles. The dealership replaced the battery cables and no light since. I thought it was BS at the time but hard to argue with now.
  9. I really like their bars. I have had them on an '01 Exped... and a '11 Wrangler. In both cases that alone made the vehicle MUCH more fun to drive and amazingly more stable (esp in the Wrangler w/ very little loss of articulation).
  10. I didn't realize this is the only pic I have of it that's not covered in mud.
  11. If an Off Road Park is what you are looking for Bridgeport will be the closest. It is a lot of fun in our Jeep. You might have to be somewhat selective of what trail you use out there. There are others in Gilmer, Tx and Davis, Ok. What exactly are you looking for?
  12. My '16 w/ 6/2 and 3.43's will spin my 35" Ridge Grapplers w/o thinking twice. My simple opinion based solely on my own experience with my own truck; unless your pulling a huge amount of weight or chasing Jeeps crawling up rock faces the gearing in these is just fine. Just my thought, worth what was paid....
  13. One of the TV stations did a story on this exact topic a couple of weeks ago. I think the total time was under 20 seconds for our trucks. Felt great about seeing that a week after buying mine...
  14. Mine's at the dealership now for a condenser. Purchased the truck 30 days ago when the temp was 40. Better to find it now at 85 degrees than 105. 2016 w/ 47K on it.
