thearizonacowboy's 2018 2WD Offroad Build
thearizonacowboy posted a topic in Vehicle BuildsHey all, I'm back in a Chevy finally! I come from the prerunner/ high speed offroad side of things and have been building, buying, and selling a few dedicated offroad toys recently. Decided to take a break and finally got back into a Silverado and I love it so far. Thought I'd take the time to share with you my experience during these past 3 weeks of owning a 2018 Silverado. I picked up a 2wd LT 5.3L crew cab in white and the parts ordering began immediately! Of course, I had to have the aggressive offroad look so I went with the following parts: 35" BF Goodrich KM3 M/T Tires 17" Method NV Wheels King 3.0 Coilovers w/ Adjusters King 2.5 Rear Shocks w/ Adjusters Icon Uni-ball Upper Control Arms Cutting for the 35" tires proved to be quite a task since I wanted to make sure there was no contact at full bump and full lock. Although the suspension hadn't shown up, I still had to throw the new wheels and tires on! 35s on a stock Silverado just looks hilarious! TO BE CONTINUED BELOW:

Bvonscott posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsOk guys this is what I am having a dilemma with. My upgrade list so far: 1. NFAB Bumper - On Order 2. DMH Electric cutouts - Need to order next - $200 3. Diable in tune - Buying from ebay end of month hopefully - $275 4. Mazzulla Upper control Arm - August - $999 5. Mid travel coilover. WHICH ONE? - ? I have discovered in my relentless online research that you really only need the upper control arm and replacement coilovers and rear shocks to get more travel for improved off road use. Mazzulla even has a truck they promote that only has the UCA and Coilover from their mid-travel kit. But I cannot seem to figure out which coilover to get. I want about 10-12" of total wheel travel. One of the kits I read about online has a king coilover that is 16" compressed and 22.8' extended so 6.8" of shock travel but they list the wheel travel as 11" so I am confused on the difference. Also the price needs to be affordable. I can't afford a KING setup that is $3,000. I am shooting for under a $1,000. So the Dilemma, Bilstein is the cheapest, and they make really good coilovers but I have no idea which series to get 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000 thta works for my needs and is still affordable. FOX has what I need for a little more than $1,000 from what I can tell, but I dont know how much shock travel I need. KING is the best but most expensive so I have ruled them out. Anyone else have this dilemma?
