  1. Yes I have noticed this before. Mine looks exactly the same as the previous picture.
  2. I removed the plastic fender pieces and pulled the wheel well insert. Gave everything a good cleaning, then re-installed. Super easy to do, don't need to remove the wheel. Just a T15 bit and a phillips screwdriver.
  3. I have ReadyLift UCA on my 2018. 20k driving so far, i'm happy with them.
  4. I was reading their list of vehicles.....I have an '18 Sierra 1500 5.3 with the 6L80e. Is my truck magically exempt from the problem vehicles, or is their list a typo? Make/Model: 2006 - 2015 CADILLAC ESCALADE 6.0L, 6.2L 2006 - 2007 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 6.0L 2009 - 2018 CHEVROLET EXPRESS 2500 4.8LL 2009 - 2018 CHEVROLET EXPRESS 3500 4.8L, 6.0LL 2006 - 2016 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 6.0L 2013 - 2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 5.3L 2008 - 2017 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 5.3L 2007 - 2013 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 2500-3500 HD 6.0L 2008 - 2011 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN 1500 / 2500 6.0L 2008 - 2015 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN 1500 HD 6.0L 2008 - 2013 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN 5.3L 2008 - 2018 CHEVROLET TAHOE 5.3L, 6.2L 2007 - 2013 GMC 2500-3500 HD 6.0L 2008 - 2011 GMC DENALI 6.2L 2008 - 2011 GMC SAVANA 3500 6.0L 2006 - 2015 GMC SIERRA DENALI 6.2L 2007 - 2013 GMC SIERRA 2500 6.0L 2007 - 2013 GMC SIERRA 3500 6.0L 2008 - 2018 GMC YUKON 5.3L, 6.2L 2012 - 2015 ISUZU NPR BOX TRUCK 6.0L 2008 - 2010 PONTIAC G8 6.0L
  5. How recently did you change the oil filter? There were isolated reports of the rubber gasket on the oil filters leaking due to incorrect torque when installing. GM put out some new guidance for the oil filter, I can't find the PDF but it was something like, only 3/4 to 1 full turn once the rubber gasket makes contact with the mounting surface.
  6. Another point.......you always hear about the few who've had lifter failures. You never hear about the tens of thousands who've had no issues at all. Statistically, you're highly unlikely to have a lifter failure. Just my 3 cents (inflation)
  7. We're currently in El Salvador. The $USD is the official currency here. Diesel is around $3.99 and regular is $4.25 a gallon. Guatemala and Mexico had similar prices when we drove through earlier. Sure beats $6.20 US / gallon currently in Vancouver Canada.
  8. Hopefully some others can confirm if their wireless charging works well or not. I wouldn't take just my word for it, but it'll be interesting to see more comments. I have an older android phone too, S7 or something like that.
  9. Just curious about the comment on remote start? RE: lifter failure
  10. I find the wireless pad in my 2018 annoying. Depending on the phone, it sometimes charges erratically, on...off...on...off. Worse if you have a plastic case on your phone. And unless your phone is on silent, you get the "beep" sound when your phone commences a charge. Sometimes it would beep every 20-30 seconds as it cycled the power charge on and off. I think the phone has to be positioned perfectly in the center for it to work great. Super annoying. So I quit using it and just charge via the regular USB cable. Maybe this is just my experience.
  11. Rockauto is $2.50 each https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=1378695&cc=3439927&pt=7676&jsn=1799
  12. I had a good look in between the pleats, i could see some very small particles. Made me confident in the decision to install the filter. Next time I'll try and unravel the entire length.
  13. When you mount a large aux cooler directly in front of your factory radiator, are there any issues with reduced cooling to the factory rad?
