  1. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    Alright fellas, I have read every post on this board regarding the Bilsteins and I believe I have the right set up in mind but would like some feedback. My goal maybe counter-intuitive, but I would like to keep the rake and and would like to achieve a smoother more controlled ride with minimal impact to MPG. The only thing keeping me from the Bilsteins Leveling shocks is that they only provide 1.8" of lift, and I do not find that Bilstein makes a 5100 in a non ride height adjustable shock and have been advised not to use them on the lowest setting in conjunction with a spacer. My Current Truck is the crew max tow without the Rancho Shocks If I have done my research appropriately (reading other Members Posts) the below set up should give me exactly what I want with little to no MPG impact Any feedback would be greatly appreciated Bilstein 4600 front Pro Comp (63235) 2.25" Level Lift (2.25 appeals greatly to me and I am not a fan of Rancho products) 2" Rear Block Bilstein 5100 rear Later add 275/60/20 Ms2's Larger diameter than my Eagle's but the same weight and I love this tire, many members say this size and tire does not impact their MPG.

  3. Looks awesome! Did you notice any difference in the ride quality? Have you noticed much loss in MPG?
  4. 2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

    I was thinking the same thing, but would winterblend really drop my mileage by 5 mpg?
  5. 2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

    Hey fellas, I have noticed a pretty significant mileage drop on my 2014 Crew 5.3 3.42 pick up. I drive about 30 miles/day 99% freeway. When I first got the truck I was averaging anywhere between 20-21 daily, however just in the past couple of weeks my mileage has significantly decreased and am now averaging anwhere from 15-16.5. My driving habits have not changed and I am not using the remote start or idling for any length of time. Any idea what could be causing the change? Should I just take it to the dealer?
  6. Nope, tried to do a deal with Mckinney but they just seemed to be jerking me around. Went with James Wood in Denton. Did they not give you a warranty on the bed liner?
  7. Hey Everyone! Just got my 2014 Sierra SLT and loving it. I thought that the Bose system would be enough for me, but the bass is lacking in my opinion. Has anyone had any luck in adding a powered sub like the ones below to the existing Bose system? http://www.crutchfield.com/p_20611HS8/Kicker-11HS8.html http://www.crutchfield.com/p_108BASSLIN/Infinity-BassLink.html?i=108BASSLIN#customer-reviews-tab
  8. Honestly, I never used the 4x4 and with the G80 the new one should do everything I need the truck to do. You were dead on in regards to the MSRP, $47,245
  9. Well fellas I finally made the deal and with wife approval here are the numbers. 2014 2wd Sierra SLT Max Tow White MSRP $47,245 Loaded with Bose, Nav, Heated and cooled seats, Heated Steering wheel and back slider Texas Package with Steps, chrome mirrors and chrome 20's Driver Alert Package Tint Front Windows Spray in Rhino Linner $40,750 out the door with TT&L Trade 2010 Platinum F150 4x4 with Nav Sunroof and Slider with 65k Dealer offer 27k Owe $14,464.16 Total Net on Trade $12,536 Thoughts?
  10. Well still trying to make a deal, between Chad in Decatur and McKinney GMC. Trying real hard to get 40k out the door and 28k for my 2010 Platinum 4x4 crew cab with 65k. Dealing on a White 2014 SLT 2wd Crew Loaded to the gills except sun roof and rear slider books at $46,570. Really hoping I can get there! Thanks WIllc11!
  11. Thanks Brother! Just called him and he is working a deal now.
  12. Forgive me but I'm not catching your drift. You said it sounds low but you got a bigger discount. Was my offer to low or to high?
  13. Alright fellas, just tried to make my first deal and no go Loaded 2014 GMC SLT 2wd Short Bed Bucket Seats Nav Lane dept etc Chrome 20 inch wheels Bose Steps Sticker 46k Dealer offer (James Woods Denton) $41,250 + TT&L 6.25% in Texas My Counter was 40k out the door plus an additional 1500 for my trade Dealer countered with same offer on the new truck but came up $500 on my trade Negotiation Staled and I walked. Is 40k out the door for a loaded SLT on the last day of the month and quarter reasonable?
  14. No 5.75 bed then? Dang my crew cab short bed is just too long these days (barely fits in the garage). Hopefully the new Canyon will come in a Denali version and be as large as a Nissan Titan.
