  1. Definitely mention your wear to dealer if you are within 3yr 36k. You can get font and back katzskin “leather” for $550 eBay if you install yourself. Supposedly katzskin is a little better than oem “leather”.
  2. Here’s my driver seat 2018 11k miles. Installing the driver side grab handle (and using it to lift your azz off seat) helps prevent side bolster seat wear.
  3. I prefer stockish look and no “bro” wheels that stick way out of the fenders which then throw rocks and down side of truck and onto others behind. Don’t care for black wheels as they pretty much just blend into tire and wheel well. I don’t mind chrome. It doesn’t rock chip like painted bumpers. All that said it looks pretty good.
  4. I have a Samsclub energizer (Walmart everstart maxx?) from 2014 in wife’s car. Only a 4 cylinder car but it gets driven almost every day, short trips and still going strong in 2020. I have a yellow top optima that’s 15 years old in my 79 k10. That one was made in USA. Supposedly their quality went down hill when they moved production to Mexico. Hopefully optima has improved since then. Still running my stock battery in my 2018. I occasionally throw my noco charger on it when truck sits for more than a week. When it dies, I’ll take a hard look at optima, odyssey, Sams / Walmart. Is AGM worth the extra cost vs standard lead acid?
  5. I think the 18” AT4 wheel looks great on K2xx generation. I promptly got rid of the stock 20” chrome clad (chromed plastic wheel cover) wheels that came on the premium plus package. More info on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRxevu2UVj-pRTpqY334XxA
  6. The AT4 wheels were also sold with Goodyear fortitude HT 265/65/18. I picked up a set for $700. No TPMS sensors but found some oem GM 315 MHz sensors on ebay for $30 for all 4. Acdelco # 13516164 worked for my truck. Watch out for Chinese lookalike sensors on eBay and Amazon. The ones I purchased were removed from new takeoffs.
  7. Google result: UQA Bose Sound System premium 7-speaker system with amplifier in center console 1 - Included and only available with (Y3I) Infotainment Package II.
  8. I've towed 4k lbs across desert with 110 outside temps and my 8l90 trans temp was 190 - 215. My truck is stock 6.2L max tow. Can I mod the trans thermostat like the 6l80 or just leave it be?
  9. Your upper control arm is pretty much on the rubber stop so you have almost no down travel for wheel / suspension to move downward. The new UCA’s should help with that. Your spacer is to blame. Here is my upper control arm cant rotate image for some reason...
  10. I’ve seen some pics of the stock Bose door speakers and they look very cheap. Like the bottom of the barrel autozone offering is better. Has anyone faded to the rear? I did this (testing for any blown speakers) and the rear speakers have much lower volume and nonexistent bass compared to the front. I understand oem stereo ain’t going to blow you away but it seems like all we get with the $500 Bose system is 2 emblems on the front doors and under sized / powered speakers [emoji344] sub and amp. Adding an aftermarket sub helped a lot but it seems like all Bose does is limit and cut frequencies so you don’t distort or blow the cheap stock speakers. Rant over (for now)
  11. Sounds sweet! Hope negotiations go well at the stealership ;-)
  12. Truck looks sweet! Your ball joint angles look a little stressed. You may have premature ballpoint failure with those angles. I’m sure others will chime in with their thoughts. CVs are “ok” but a diff drop would help make the angles better. Here’s mine with bilstein on 3rd notch from bottom or 1 notch below top. I got 1.85” lift with just the 5100s. Maybe max tow package has stiffer front springs?
  13. Pics of truck and current CV angle? Did you get truck aligned after 5100 and spacer install? If yes and you are within alignment specs, no need for upper control arms. If you are out of alignment specs or tire rubbing on upper control arm at full lock then you could get aftermarket aarm. Diff drop won’t do anything for ride quality but will help with CV angles. Bilstein rides stiff. Whats your tire pressure? What load range are tires?
