POST PICTURES OF YOUR BODY LIFTS (2014+)

I've watched the youtube video on how to install a BL on these trucks and they show an extension for a ground strap being installed. Did your kit not come with a ground strap extension?

It came with one for underneath by the pass front tire but I looked at instructions and didn't see anything about the engine compartment ground strap. If anyone gets a chance to look at theirs let me know if it's been relocated or mine might not have as much slack as others thanks!

I'm thinking about adding a Zone BL, just curious why the majority go with the 1.5 over the 3". I understand the bigger gap between frame/bed & the bigger gap at the hitch. Is that it or am I missing something? Thanks

Hello, is anyone running a 1.5" zone body lift, and also have the amp power steps? If so could you please post a couple pictures? I want to know if the steps provide enough coverage so you will not see much of the frame below the truck. Very much appreciated!!

Mine was tight but not to the point of tearing out of the firewall, at least not yet. I took some extra precaution and made an extension just in case. Thanks for the heads up.

No problem I made an extension pretty much the same just need to fix the bolt on mine and install!

I don't think you will see the frame enough to matter but I believe someone posted they had to trim the lower body mount washers about in half so the steps could close and not hit. if I can find the post I will get you a link maybe someone else will chime in

The Amp steps hit the center body mount on my crew cab too. I trimmed about a third of the washer and it isn't metal on metal contact anymore but the step still hits the rubber body mount but hasn't caused me any problems or noise,only way I know it still hits is I can see the shape of the contact in the dust on the step when's it's deployed.

My truck has the zone 1.5 and amp power steps. Covers what little bit of the frame you would see without some form of step. you have to modify the washer on the middle body mount and the steps still come to rest against the bottom of the body mount and don't fold up quite as far as they do normally, but its not bad at all. The rear arm on the drivers side also hits the equalizer bracket for the e brake and that has to be modified as well. You have to shorten the single cable and lengthen the two cables that attach to the bracket to move the bracket forward to clear the link arm for the steps.

Looks good, I got plans to run the KO2's in a 305 65 18 in the next month or so.

Those tires will look awesome I bet and the wider tires do look better. Can't go wrong with the bfg ko2's. I know alot of people who had the original ko's and they lasted a long time and the ko2's are supposed to be even better so we will hope and see.

Thank you for the detailed response! Could you please upload a direct side view if it is not too much trouble? Cheers.

      I’m looking for the best 6 inch lift for this truck. I talked to a local suspension shop for an install and they spooked me on Rough Country - they stopped installing them due to poor quality and many after install problems.
      would very much appreciate any and all input - truck is a brand new build and I want to do it right.

      Hello everyone. I've recently purchased a 2020 Silverado 1500 from a dealership. I found out late in the sale that the truck was used as the dealerships "loaner" which didn't really bother me even though I know people beat up those vehicles. Anyway, I'm pretty in-tune to vehicle sounds and I had a couple of questions regarding noises I'm hearing from my vehicle. 
       
      The first is a clunking noise and a physical jolt when I shift from Drive to Reverse. I have my foot on the brake and am on a flat surface. I notice it a lot after I've been driving for a while and go to back into my garage. I took the truck back to the dealership and they chalked it up to bad U-joints. They slapped 2 fresh sets on, but I've still go the issue. Any ideas what it may be? I don't feel like anything is going to fail, but I also don't like the sound and don't think it should be that way. I have another service appointment next week and I'd like to help them out with ideas considering they don't really seem to care.
       
      The second is a ticking noise coming from the undercarriage. I' got under the truck today and believe it's coming from the rear portion of the engine, but I'm not for certain as I've never been beneath the truck while it's been on a rack. The noise cannot be heard when standing at the front with the hood up, but I can hear it very noticeably when standing at the driver's door. I do not hear it as the engine is heating up, but that could be because every other component under the hood is loud as h*ll while the truck is heating up. Once the engine is approaching operating temp, it's very noticeable. As you can hear from the short video, it's every .5 to 1 second or so and is always present during idling. Again, may not be a big issue, but I hate hearing things on my vehicles that I can't attribute to something else.
       
      Thanks for reading my ramblings. I can try to post longer videos if anyone needs. Thanks in advance!

      Hey Everybody. I’m about to have my 2014 Silverado AFM deleted with stage 3 cam upgrade, longtube headers, l86 intake, l86 TB, 3200 stall, custom tune. My question- is their other things I must do to go with these upgrades? Truck is 4x4 but will soon be lowered. Driveshaft? New Trans cooler? Bigger oil pump? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

      Ok, I've got the tow mirrors, I have the recommends pins, and I know the pin locations in my case 9, 11, 41. What I cannot find ANY WHERE is how to correctly install the pins into the door connector the plugs in the X600. My understanding its important because if you screw up, well, your in big trouble. I've watch various YouTube videos but because of poor lighting, big hands, cramped space, small pins it's hard to see. So does anyone have anything that DETAILS the correct orientation when inserting pin in connector slot? Appreciated, thanks.

      I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado and I have been having trouble with the entire radio and screen .. I recently replace a bad HMI module that I got from infotainment.com and it solved the issue. Now the screen is back to black and the display where the gauges are says “audio off” any idea why ?? Anyone have this issue I tried everything. Maybe I need a new ACM module now? HELP !
