I know a lot of people are running black rims on white trucks and blacked out black trucks and color matching etc. I decided to go old school chrome (lux) look. I made this happen on the front end by swapping out my black front bumper skid shield with the denali chrome one. I also as some of you may know, whited out my badges with reflective vinyle (see profile pic) and decided on chrome rims, exception, these rims are powder coated and flashed for the exact same look as chrome except they clean up just like paint. soap and water and wax. So this may not be for all but it takes me back a bit while still be modern. By the way, to remove this and replace. off comes the under grill molding, the radiator shroud, the front grill, the front bumper, remove both bumper backing plates remove and replace skid plate. i followed these instructions... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-do4lHsbydM
As the title states, I'm starting to research some lift kit options for an old 2003 Bow-Tie. It's an extended cab stock z71 off road package with brand new BFG 265/75r16 tires. What I'm attempting to get out of this forum is discussion from owners of similar models that have gone this route and can give me some personal experiences. There are many options for lifts, but my preference is to lift no more than 4" and most ideally, just a 2" or 3" lift. I don't really want a leveling kit, but am open to suggestions from all areas. If I were to rank my vehicle knowledge, I would place myself as a 4/10. Possible lift options Zone 2" lift Rough Country Leveling Kit I'd also like an explanation on torsion keys vs suspension lifts (I don't plan on doing a suspension lift) so that I have a better understanding of what to expect to be careful with. I know torsion keys are going to extend the depth of the suspension and cause the shocks to not be able to travel as far, but I'd accept a rougher ride as a sacrifice for running bigger tires and having higher clearance. Here are some pictures of the truck I've bought (no I didn't pay the sticker price). Thanks guys
Do I need a tune?
Texas Silver posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI've done the following switches on the truck and I'm thinking about getting a tune/program: My Truck: 2016 Crew Cab 4x4, 5.3L w/8 speed tranny Swapped the factory Goodyear all-terrains for BFG AT-K02. Great ride improvement, very smooth very quite. New tires are 265/70/R18, little bigger than stock. I also put on Gibson catback 315628 side swept exhaust and K&N series 63 CAI. Exhaust sounds great and CAI gave a little better jump off the line. My goal was to try and squeeze any more MPG I could while making it more responsive as I'm on the highway a lot. I've seen 2-3 increased MPG according to the MPG calculator in the instrument cluster. So, do I need a tune? If so which one? Looking at the Diablo's as they seem to have tunes for 2016's but not sure if I'll need a custom. Anyone have any tips or advice?
