  1. I'd try rough countrys vertex coilovers. I'm pretty sure they'll fit your lift and they're only $1000. It's gotta be cheaper than labor and trying to source parts to unlift your truck. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. Double check your wiring. Same thing happened to me. I emailed rigid and they sent me an rma # to send them back in. When I went to take them out I double checked my wiring. I must have forgotten how lazy I was when I installed them because I used butt connectors and was going to soder later. Turns out that one of my grounds was bad. Rewired everything with soder and heat shrink. They work great again. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. I the wiring is easy, just time consuming. If you're going to use the oem offroad light switch then you'll need this harness from pgamboa https://harnessdr.com/product/off-road-light-headlight-switch-bcm-harness/ and the switch itself. Follow this YouTube video and it will explain the entire process. I used this harness off Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076C5HV59/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_FQQuEb0DCKXNY It comes with a pigtail that you can soder onto the lightbar wires so you'll have a watertight connection. You will notice that in the video above his trigger wire for the relay is blue. On this harness it's not blue. I'll double check mine later to confirm what color the trigger wire is. That's pretty much it. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! It was your idea lol Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. I have mine wired up to the oem switch for aux lights. The light doesn't come with a wiring harness so you need to get one so its properly wired to a relay. I copied how TXGREEK mounted the same light except his is on a gmc. There is a plastic shroud that comes off when you remove the grill. Its mounted directly to the shroud. Just getting it lined up was the easy part. Finding the correct height took a little time. I'd say it took about 2 hrs but I already had my switch installed. Here's TXGREEKs pic of mounting it to the shroud. I didn't take any pics of it, but it's the same for the Silverado. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. I got tired of waiting on Rough Country. I don't even think they're going to come out with a kit for trucks with active shutters. I ended up installing the same lightbar that another member put on his gmc. It fits with the active shutters, puts out a lot of light, and isn't even noticable behind the grill. I did have to drill a couple of holes in the mounting bracket that came with the bar to lower it some, but that was it. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. I thought about putting mine there, but if I remember correctly it wouldn't sit flat with enough room for the door to shut. I'd try a different dealer. 3 hrs is BS. Mine didn't even charge me. I talked to the service manager and he said they would do it since I bought the truck from them. It literally took them 10 mins. They had to make 1 phone call to get it the serial # on the keypad authorized. Then they plugged into the obd2 port and programmed it in. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Is it one of these? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. A little over a month ago [email protected] posted a thread about sending out some of his Throttle Controllers for a few members to review. I received one of them and have been using it daily for a month now. I’m extremely impressed. Not only is there a night and day difference in the throttle response, but the quality of the device/packaging as well. The install was a breeze. I know there’s a lot of people that think something like this is a waste of money. I was one of those people too until I tried one. I didn’t think there would be a noticeable change in my throttle response because my truck is already tuned. It honestly feels like I’m driving a totally different truck. The truck just moves now as soon as you press the pedal. The throttle controller DOESN’T add any horsepower. All it does is take the spongy/lag out of your pedal. There is a total of 37 different settings. After trying all the settings I’ve settled on Comfort Level 5. You can go higher depending on your personal preference. If you go too high it makes the throttle feel jumpy. The only negative thing I can say about it is the 3M tape on the back that you use to mount it. I cleaned the area I wanted to mount it to with rubbing alcohol and let it dry. The tape would not stick. It wasn’t a big deal though because I had some extra 3M tape in the garage. I’ve attached a pic of where I mounted it. You don’t even notice it while driving. The LED light is dull so it’s not distracting at all. A little history on my truck. It’s a 17 6.2. Even bone stock the throttle response was horrible. I did the paint sick mod, that helped. Then I had the ecm and tcm tuned. That also helped, but it still had the lag. About a year ago I installed a 7-inch lift and 35s, that definitely made the truck feel sluggish. I know I should probably re-gear, but spending $2k-$3k on my truck with a new baby at home would be financially irresponsible. This should have been one of my 1st mods and for only $75 it’s worth it. Thanks again to [email protected]
  10. They say they have a lifetime warranty. I ordered directly from Kryptonite so they shouldn't question it. It's been a year so far and no slop in the ball joints. The cognito ones failed within 6 months. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Readylift 7 inch. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. I have Cognito UCAs and the ball joints wore out. I ended up replacing them with a set of Kryptonite ball joints. I haven't had any issues with them and they have a lifetime warranty. Kryptonite didn't have UCAs for 1500s when I got my Cognitos. If they did I would have gone with them. Its nice to see them offer more for the 1500s. I'll probably end up getting a set of their tie rod ends. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. I took the grill off. The grill has a plastic shroud that goes around it. It comes out with the grill when you take the grill off. I mounted it directly to the bottom of that shroud. I didn't take any pics but TXGREEK has pics of it in his original post. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Got it off Amazon. It doesn't come with a wiring harness, but I got one off Amazon also. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks man. I got the bar on Amazon. I forgot to add that the lightbar doesn't come with a wiring harness or switch. I just ordered a harness off Amazon also. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
