  1. The RST Street doesn't have the 6.2L?
  2. I cannot say this enough, I HATE the new mirror location...
  3. 2019 GMC Sierra - Spotted On the Road - Images

    Not a fan at all...
  4. The hypocrisy is exorbitant in these individuals... The morons that drive hybrids go around screaming about how they are saving the environment by reducing their fuel consumption and lowering emissions. Well folks, in Indiana the number one producer of energy is still coal fired power plants, so that electric your charging your car with is one of the most prevalent polluters in the energy industry. Oh, and those batteries that store that energy, if not disposed of properly, are a major issue as well. I'm tired of the "ban it if I don't like it" mentality. If I don't like it, I don't buy it. I don't go make a big sign and stand on a street corner in protest of you owning it.
  5. So, I bought a ford...

    Very cool! Man those Thornbirds have seen better days though.
  6. Did you cut off the drop stoops when you installed the UCA's? I noticed in the installation notes Cognito mentions this. Upon researching I have seen some do, some don't.
  7. I appreciate the response. Moog is what I was planning on using, I'll check out MRT's site as well. Did any of you replace the bolts and nuts where the LCA mounts to the frame? I read these were a one time torque thread or nut, is this true?
  8. I searched and didn't really come up with anything other than EBAY dealers or straight from Cognito. Where have you all been purchasing them from, and have any of you found a decent deal? Getting my parts list put together to do these when I change the front struts over to Bilsteins. Have a 2.5" level with stock struts now, will be running the 5100's at max with possibly a 1/4" top spacer. Also, those of you with aluminum upper and lowers, any issues switching over to the Cognito uppers, and did any of you press in new lower ball joints to the aluminum arms with success? Thanks
  9. Seriously, am I the only one that thinks the new location of the mirrors on the doors is absolutely terrible? I like the wheels though.
  10. I'm sorry, I can't stand the way the mirrors attach to the door... It just looks so awkward to me.
  11. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    The gutless off the line you speak of is most definitely the torque management. Get a tune, totally different. There is a reason SO many choose the LS series motors for swaps and It for sure isn’t because they are gutless off the line.
  12. truxedo lo pro qt off 2014 short bed 1500

    6’6” or 5’8” bed?
  13. GMT 400 crew cab short bed k2500, 4" BDS lift, 20x9's, slightly built LQ9 swap, completely restored, drive as a DD.
  14. clean the engine and bay

    Make sure the engine is cool. I spray down the whole engine bay with simple green, let it soak in for 5 minutes or so. I then take the hose and put it on the shower setting and spray off everything, staying away from the alternator. I then take my air compressor and blow out/off all standing water, blow out all electronics, make sure to get any water out of the intake valley area, etc. Then I start the truck and let it run for a couple minutes to clean the belts off and burn off any residual moisture. My go to engine bay detailer is Stoner's Trim Shine.
  15. Do the full containment seats come standard or as an add on?
