  1. I have 295 70 18 Trail Grapplers on my 2008 5.3 RCSB Z71 and I want to regear. 4.10s get me very close to factory radios. Will going up to 4.56 help with regaining some bottom end power? I don't care about gas mileage, the truck is driven like 5000 miles a year with no long trips. Secondly I am correct that I just need to buy ring and pinion setup for a GM 8.6 in the rear and GM 8.25 in the front? I should say I have 3.73 right now
  2. I don't like being told something can't be done. So I took a 1400 dollar gamble and it paid off. I have a 2008 Silverado with a 2.5" Top Gun Customs level and now rocking 295 70s on my stock 18s and I don't have to trim. I think they barely catch the rivet thing holding the inner fender, but I can't hear any ribbing and i drove up and down curbs and backed out of my buddies steep driveway and I couldn't hear any rubbing so I'm not going to worry about for now. The truck spends most of its time sitting, today was the first time in 3 weeks I got home from work early enough to go get the tire
  3. I want to add air bags to my rear suspension as I do carry some heavy stuff and I don't like looking at the sag. I plan on getting the manual fill ones and here is my question. Obviously they come with line to run the fitting wherever I want but what kind of fitting is on them? Can I just use a high pressure tire guage to see how much air is in them?

  4. you can get a pretty penny for those wheels. I say go for the 0 offset wheels. As for tires what do you do with your truck? A lot of miles? Want to keep the plush Denali ride? I'd go with the p rated 275 55 20 duratracsif snow is a concern. I know 5 or 6 guys that plow and run them (e rated obviously) on winter wheels and they are awesome in the snow.

  5. I have 275 65 18 Cooper AT3s that have plenty of room with my level, backing up Big Whiskey they would fit fine w/o a level. The only other suggestion I could make is maybe a 285/60/18? I know General AT2 and a couple others make it but I won't guarantee it won't rub. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  6. I agree with BMF being a higher quality wheel. But I also agree with chrome on a white truck being super classy. Have you considered the death metal? It kind of gives you the best of both worlds. worlds I would choose the SOTAs either way but just an opinion Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  7. I have been himming and hawing over new tires for months now, basically because I installed some Pro Comp Pro Runner SS shocks and it made the ride very stiff and I was hesitant to go from my P rated Coopers to a load range E mud tires, since I really want to go aggressive with this time. I was messing around on Nittos website last night looking at the Trail Grapplers for the 1000th time and was excited to see they are coming out with 285/70/17 in load range C on July 1st. So I will be first in line to wrap those around some 17x9 Fuel Hostage and finally have some new shoes. Figured I'd post t
  8. Thats an amazing looking truck man, I wish i could afford to go that route
  9. I have amsoil in my diffs, all I did was change the fluid and I have no problems
  10. I couldn't have spent the first day of no rain this week, and the first nice day of the spring in Massachusetts for that matter, in a better way. By the way, the truck was washed last weekend. It is still just that gross up here still.
  11. I finaly decided to take the plunge and buy some quality cleaning products. I ordered the exterior 6 pack, clay bar and paint sealant from Adams. This morning I decided is wash the wifes 4Runner, not expecting my stuff from Adams to be here until next week. Low and behold here comes the Fed Ex man, so I cleared the rest of my day and got to work Before... gross Wash, clay, wash again, polish, sealant, glaze, RVT, and 6 hours later I had this. Truck looks amazing. Everything went on and came off so easily. I am thoroughly impressed. My vehicles won't be getting anything else from no
  12. I have absolutely noticed this. What ever the dealer put in it when i bought it (GM Certified, with only 43,000 miles) the low oil light came on after like 3500 miles. Needless to say I FREAKED out my new truck was using so much oil, especially after some of the horror stories I had read with these trucks using oil. Rather than fly off the handle at the dealer, I took it straight to my mechanic and had him change the oil with 5w30 AMSOIL. It has gotten that every 5000 miles, and in 60,000 since it has not burned a drop
  13. I had the same problem on my 99. White lithium grease every couple of months keeps it at bay.
  14. I also just placed my first order last night. The exterior six pack, clay bar and paint sealer. Cant wait for this weekend.
