  1. Worst day ever

    I'd probably cry. Dang man, if having kids and getting married is your worst day I feel for ya. I've been married for 8 years and have two kids. Best three days of my life. That's fantastic news, glad to hear it!

    Holy moly look at the angle of that CV joint.
  3. Worst day ever

    It does have full coverage insurance... I did try to talk the wife into buying a newer truck yesterday but I don't think she's having it. Then again she did let me test drive a 2018 so maybe we're on the right path. I've seen videos on the YouTube using sand paper to remove the scratches and it looks like a possibility. My concern is not knowing if these wheels have clear coat on them. I'm assuming they do and if so then while sanding will remove the scratch, it will also remove the clear coat making the wheels much worse than it is now. That's a good idea and will have to call around on Monday. I did text the guy who I bought the wheels from early last year, he gets them from new truck pull off when the dealers replace the stock wheels with aftermarket wheels. He doesn't have the 2018 styles like I have anymore but does have the 2019 styles... ;) What can I say life is good. ;)
  4. Parked next to a curb in a parking lot and when I was backing out, I managed to grab a hold of the curb with my GM snowflake wheel. From top to bottom on the picture it's only about the width of my thumb, but damn it it bugs the heck out of me. Any chance this can be fixed without replacing the wheel? It's a factory GM 20" snowflake wheel. I'm not sure if they have a clear coat on them or not. Any suggestions?
  5. In my old work truck I re-wired the radio so that I could power it on without the key having to be in the on or alt position, which was nice when I was in the shop. I now have a 2010 Sierra for a shop truck and would like to do the same but not sure if that's even possible with the new anti-theft built into these radios. Has anyone here re-wired their radio to be able to turn on without having the key in the on position?

    Sorry, I wasn't referring to the bigger 6" lifts when I said adding stress but more of the leveling kits. In nearly every case I've read leveling kits just push things causing sharper angles, stress and so on - or at the very least makes the truck drive a bit stiffer.

    I won't speak for @jimmyboy8301, but for me I just want something with a little higher stance than my stock truck has now. I'd probably be happy with a leveling kit, but would much rather got a tab bit higher with a 4" and get a nice suspension lift knowing that the drivetrain and suspension is as it should be without causing a lot of stress.

    Yes, I would like to get a 4 - 4.5" lift. Nothing crazy just a bit taller stance. Thanks for your suggestions. I've just looked at all three brands and based on their company websites pricing Zone seems to be the best price at around $1200.

    Understood. So if I'm reading this post correctly, the knuckle will be better at keeping angles stock?
  10. 2014+ Suspension Lifts

    I'm also looking at lift kits and am considering Zone and CST brands. If I'm understanding this correctly, the Zone kit is a better kit?
  11. It didn't work. I could connect to the wifi, but not matter what software I tried to use on my android phone it wouldn't find the scanner. Going back and looking at more reviews on amazon it seems this hardware has issues with the latest versions of android. So I'm going to return the scanner and looking for something else. Probably a handheld unit like I was looking at before. That way it won't matter what phone I use or what version of android it's running.
  12. I guess a better question I should have asked, is what is it about the Zone, BDS, CST lifts that make them better in terms of not causing issues with drivetrain/suspension? What do those kits include (or not include) compared to others that relieve the issues that mechanics have warned me about with other kits?
  13. So any Zone, BDS, or CST (I've not heard of that brand) would automatically be a good kit to lift the truck without causing more issues than needed?
  14. I have a 2016 Silverado LT Z71 that I would like lift to give it a little taller stance. What I'd like to do is lift it 3-4" (probably no more than 4.5") but have been told by a few mechanics that lift kits can add more stress on the CV joints, suspension, etc. Is there such a lift kit available that will give me a 3-4" lift, but would also remedy any drivetrain/suspension/steering stress as to not cause un-needed wear and tear? Or am I better off just sticking with stock? I'm not looking to add huge wheels and tires, in fact I very much like my 20" snowflake wheels and would plan on keeping those... maybe changing the tires later down the road.
  15. Thanks for all the help guys. I just placed an order for the kungfuren OBD2 scanner today and purchased the Torque Pro app as well.
