  1. 285 or 275??

    Not much difference. I'd go with the (ever so slightly) taller tire. Using this Link, you can see that there isn't much difference.

    Right on. Thanks guys as I was wondering how much of a rub I'd get.
  3. Site Search Tool

    Ok, that search idea worked awesome. Thanks gain James. Seems that I'll be ordering some 275/65/20 BFG at the end of the month and have the possibility of a slight rub. I also came across this tire size comparison site: https://tiresize.com/comparison/

    Thanks James. I'll give it a try.
  5. Hey everyone. I'm looking for tips on how to get the search function to work. I've tried searching for "maximum tire size with 2"rough country leveling kit" and changing some of the search parameters. Either I get no results or everything under the sun. No, I don't feel like reading through the 439 pages for the cumbersome 2014+ leveling kit post (which is so long it's ridiculous). I actually read through a bunch of it and never found what I was looking for. Lord knows I don't want to start a new thread on the topic as I'll get run out of town. I couldn't find a sticky regarding the search function, though I could have missed it. Thanks.

    Thanks guys. I figured that it was normal. Way too fun to stomp on it every now and again.
  7. Black Soot

    I have other gas powered vehicles; this one seems to leave a lot more black crap, that's all. If this thing had a carburetor, I'd just assume it's running rich.
  8. Hey guys, for those of you with the 6.2l, how dirty is your exhaust? I have harsh black soot at the tailpipe and out the condensation hole on the muffler. I always run top tier premium (92-94 octane) gas. So, is this pretty typical?
  9. Hey guys, I need to get a larger vehicle as I gained 2 kids recently. I am looking for something cheap and easy to work on and I found a '90 suburban on CL. Only problem is that it doesn't have the 3rd row seating. Does anyone have an idea of what years the 3rd row seat will interchange after 1990? I see a few '94 and up seats for sale, but have no idea if they would work. Thanks.
  10. From Stock to Lifted

    Looks great. What lift and size tires did you use?
  11. I have the same issue with the dash (but only in one spot), but I figured that leaving it alone would be better than have someone try to fix it. Don't know how they would as there are no clips in this immediate area. My truck doesn't have any creaks or rattles and I want to keep it that way. Now I just laugh that something can be so poorly designed and make it into production.
  12. On my '09 I only changed the oil based fluids once (other than oil) and that sucker was still running like a champ at 240,000 km. My truck makes a little bit of a weird noise when in 4x4, so I thought I better do the service.
  13. Really? That's good to know. I expected some shavings, just not that much.
  14. I just had the transfer case serviced (a little overdue as I'm at 66,000 km) and was surprised at how much metal filings were on the drain plug. Thank god the plug is magnetic. Anyways, I thought some may enjoy the picture.
