  1. I used to spin out a lot with the sra’s on my 16. Junk. Absolutely junk. Put on cooper at3 LT’s. ****ing awesome. Bites good wears good and not bad off road either
  2. If you have to motor tore down, why on earth would you put a stock cam back in? atleast go with a stage 1 or stage 2 cam. Seems asinine.
  3. Manual 5th for around town. Use the money saved toward a tune
  4. Replacing stock tires

    I’m an at3 guy through and through. My old duramax had the at3 My new 1500 has the new LT model in 275/65/18, got them Saturday wife’s Jeep has the regular at3, got them Saturday, previously had them too. Great wear, traction, all around great tire. I get them every time I need tires.
  5. Mylink Software Update

    Yea. You bring it to the dealer.
  6. Tonneau Covers

    I feel those roll ups will leak and bind up. Too much BS for what it is. I’ve seen people kick the shit out of them at stores when they need to use their bed. Idk what brand it was but I laugh my balls off. I’ve seen it a few times actually. I’m using my extang trifecta from my 2005 duramax on my 2016 1500, and it’s just as water tight as it was new, fits close enough, could be 1” longer and 1” wider, but my bed stays dry from the car wash and even when I blast it with the hose up and down the sides. I use the vinyl conditioner they sell once every few months to 2 times a year minimum, and it sits outside 24/7 365. It’s 6-7 years old and still perfect. The more moving parts, the more bends, the more seams, the worse you are for water tightness. Rubber seals dry rot quick in hot climates with a lot of sun.
  7. I have the same year and same truck. I have the motofab 1.5 up front as well, and have been researching coopers new line of at3’s for new rubber. You have the setup I’m going for. Any way you can grab pictures straight on of the truck to show the width of your tires? Maybe turn your wheel as if your turning left? im going back and forth with 275/65/18 and 285/65/18, but now you got me going on 275/70/18 due to no rubbing and I can actually see someone with the same exact everything as I have. I like the sidewall of the xlt’s better than the lt’s But it’s not a deal breaker, the tire size is going to dictate it. thanks!
  8. That’s correct! but if you actually press a button, you’ll see that the other settings are still in auto. Example press auto. Ac will be on auto, blower direction will be auto, fan auto, fresh air intake or recirc auto. Everything will be in auto. Press the recirculate button or any button. You will see that the fan will still be in “auto” and now it will bring in fresh air due to you changing the setting. The display for the hvac will pop up and tell you the status of each control. Hard to explain. Jump in your truck, and turn auto off (if it’s already on) and back on, then change the blower direction or something. You’ll see it. Until you change the fan speed, the fan will stay “auto”, or any other feature from being auto controlled, even though the light is “off”, the settings you did not touch will be in auto still. 2016 lt silverado
  9. I’ve noticed while in “auto” mode, I can change the vent locations, recirc, ac, and fan speeds, while still staying in “auto”. Maybe you have the fan speed “manually” set while in “auto” mode? Take it out of auto and put it back in i leave mine set at 70, auto mode, AC manually on, vents to feet and windshield, recirc set to outside air, and don’t touch the fan speed knob. The fan will ramp up and down automatically, while keeping the AC on for dehumidification, air won’t be blown at my face or hands, while having fresh air intake. Best setup I found. remote start will be full speed, until key goes in and turned. Phone calls will have the fan slow down. The auto fan setting in the menu is for the fan speed once the temp is “satisfied” in the truck. I have mine on low. If it’s satisfied, why run high, or medium? The temp has already been achieved...
  10. Buy a ford the seats are what they are. You can’t make them go back further than they do and are. Stop hiring tall people. And cut 6” off your shins. Maybe you’ll fit better.
  11. Towing camping trailer

    absolutely agree. i grew up towing trailers, 28'-30' deckovers on my duramax, loaded with farm tractors, towing campers etc. learning when to use trailer brakes separately from truck brakes, backing up, parking, driving in parking lots, when to accelerate harder to keep bad things from happening in hairy situations, etc. i dont have a CDL, but ill agree with your statement 100%. people buy a nice rig, and camper, go camping, and cant keep it within the lines or know how to maneuver the trailer. look at the new ford trucks, they have a yuppie knob that you twist in the direction you want to trailer to go while backing up, with remote backup cameras! what a joke. same will go with lane assist features, and backup cameras, teaching people they dont have to use their mirrors. technology is ruining peoples driving skills daily. but for the OP, tow haul, and drive. if your asking what to do, you have no clue pal. sorry to be a dick. set your brakes correctly, and drive it, leave enough space to stop etc.
  12. Exhaust Adaptive Valve

    When the truck is running, turn the valve. You’ll hear restriction then turn the opposite way, no restriction. It’s not difficult. You can hear when it’s open or closed...
  13. 2015 Silverado dash rattle??

    Take the knee bolster under the steering wheel off. 2 screws underneath and then firm pulling pressure. Under that is a metal frame with metal screws with washers. They are loose. Tighten them properly. Put back together. Done
  14. Leveling 2018 Silverado 1500 4x4

    1.5 up front gives it the look where it should have left the factory, while still having 3/4"-1" rake. i have a '16 double cab 4x4, and it looks clean. not to mention, my CV angles look great compared to trucks with 2.5-3".
  15. an accessory that we need

    I got some grip tape from eBay that sticks down nicely for my sils on front and rear doors that is pre-cut to fit my ‘16. Works good, cheap, and looks like it belongs there. Really helps with the dog jumping in and out. Especially after hunting, his dirty nails doesn’t scratch the paint
