  1. Disclosure: I didn't like the factory ride on my 2018 LTZ Z71. I also wanted leveled or slightly lifted look. I went with coilovers to get the level because they seemed to provide the ride improvment I wanted, with the 2" leveling built in. I got Fox PS 2.0 for less than $900 all four corners. I added 18x9" +1 offset wheels and 275/70 (33.2 x 10.8) tires. No rub at all. Also tried 295/70 (34.3 x 11.6) but too much rub at full lock. Could have lived with the rub, and might next time, but not now. I like the much more controled ride/cornering and rebound quickness of the coilovers. Whole different feel in my opinion than stock. Might be "stiffer", but in my opinion this is better called "control" vs "bouncing/floating". Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. My Valentine just saved me 3-4 times driving from Seattle to Spokane. Traps were everywhere. Laser is tougher, but still gave me warnings that I was being targeted so I didnt pass or speed up. Lucky that traffic was limiting us to 10mph over in that case. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. 6.2L 1500 on a round trip from Seattle to Los Angeles. Trip down without trailer, trip home towing 3200lbs Subaru on a 2500lbs car hauler. About 4mpg diff. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  6. I had a 2012 Suburban do this. Would also fail to start back up after I shut it off right after this would happen. I had to short out battery to get it going again, or wait hours. Turned out to be corrosion at the negative battery cable connections to engine and body (not at battery). New cable and cleaned up connections fixed it for over 30k and 2 years until I sold it. Dealer paid under warranty. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. My dealer wouldn't. 2018 LTZ. Pointed me to another TSB that said hard shift from 1-2 in cold state is normal operation. I can find the TSB number if you'd like. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. The mounting eye on the performance series seems to be much beefy-er. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. From LA to Seattle...so far the 6.2 is making easy work of it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. Price range will determine a lot. I went NavTv M650-GM. It does what you ask and provides ability to Amp all 5 channels with out worrying about chime and phone leveling. There are cheaper ways too. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. On my 2018, the dash speakers are a separate channel and play the door chimes and environment sounds. So replacing those can be important to matching the others. I also changed the door speakers from coaxle to separates and moved the tweeter to the sail panel. Huge improvment, but even more after adding aftermarket Amp. But that's were cost starts to balloon.

  12. 19k plus miles of short commutes, long trips and towing. No leaks. I am not sure how quickly gear oil could leak through threads on two bolts, but I imagine it is quite a while. Besides the oil level sits below the bolts. Mine is most definitely not flat backed. Just as rounded as the factory. But everyone has to rights to their own concerns.
  13. So try an experiment: leave a quart or jar of each weight oil out by your truck on the colder nights. When you go to start your truck, see if you can tell the difference between the heavier stuff and the light stuff. For me 0 weight is just too much like water when "cold". At operating temps it more like a 30w, so I just don't think it makes a difference where I am and the narrower the range, the less modifiers to go bad, wear out.
