jcav8r's 2016 Sierra Denali 6.2L

Recommended Posts

I just took delivery of my 2016 Denali this week. I had to search for the spec sheet I wanted; this one is Onyx Black with black interior, short box and a 6.2L V8. What a truck! Not much to say about it right now since she's brand new but I have plenty of modifications I'll be making over time, and happy to answer any questions about it in the meantime.

 

 

Some build items on my shorter term to-do list:

  • Window Tint
  • De-chrome (mirrors, door handles, trim)
  • Remove running boards
  • Leveling Kit
  • Wheels/tires

 

Eventually I'll be either blacking out the OEM grill or looking for an aftermarket one that I like. Will be sure to post updates as I have them, for now here's some shots of the truck after I took delivery. I also promise to use my actual camera vs. a potato for future photo shoots :)

First mod is in. Bed extender!

 

Pretty straight forward...took me about an hour, and now my race bike can fit up-right and I won't lose the rest of my gear out the back!

 

Next items on the list: De-chrome and front window tint to match the factory tint on rear windows. Next slate of photos will be better :)

Bed extender is a great purchase....I got mine through the dealership as a factory accessory. Would recommend to anyone...

 

Previous track bike was an 848 Evo Corse, but I've now got a 1299 Panigale. And, to clarify I should call it a track bike since I don't actually race in WMRRA. I don't have time to commit to a full race season unfortunately.

 

My old 848 in cheap track skins:

Very nice, great bike...I could never bring my self to ride one on the track though. To expensive for me to throw it down the track into a fireball at any point.

 

This is one of mine:

Nice bike...R6 correct? That's one of the best track bikes you could put yourself on....

 

...and yeah, the Duc's are a little more pricey but I've always been a Ducati lover and can't seem to break away. I love a big twin....I think this is my fifth or sixth Ducati?? I almost got the new R1 until I rode the 1299...just couldn't say no!

 

Also, another benefit to track days vs. race league is that my insurance will cover accidents at "instructional events". That said, I've never crashed a street bike so it's not a problem I've had to deal with yet, but I do have friends who have been covered after going down at track days since the organizers generally classify themselves as an instructional event. Checkered flag racing is another story....

Yes they will potentially cover it, however it is an absolute bitch to go through that process. I went through that when I totaled out my original track bike and too forever battling with them over it. Just best to have something you are not afraid to toss away in case that situation does occur.

 

Yes it is a 2006 R6, fully built except motor

      Hey everyone, couldn't find a thread for WTB/WTS but I am looking to replace my center console tray out of my 2011 Sierra All Terrain. It came with the brushed aluminum one that have the cover flaps thats open/close. Part #23164630. If anyone has one in good condition for sale let me know. Im based in Ontario but can send a shipping label and use paypal for payment. Attached a picture so theres no confusion! Thanks so much.

      So up until yesterday the truck was driving relatively smoothly, there was the occasional hard shift from 1st to 2nd (which I believe these trucks are known for). I stopped at a stop light yesterday and started going and then at about 20 MPH the truck decided it didnt want to shift. This happened a few times throughout the day and seemed to get worse as the day went on and at this point it now does it every time it gets down into the lower gears. I switched to manual to see what gear it was stuck in and it showed 2nd and then 3rd after it shifted and didnt want to shift up. 
       
      EDIT: Transmission temps when I was looking did not appear to get above 205 F, Fluid is red like it should be, level seems fine. 

      Is there a known issue with these transmissions or an easy fix I can attempt? Transmissions are voodoo to me

      2 inch spacers front.
      ordered -38 mm offset wheels 
      pre runner front bumper trimmed inner fender to metal line
      just ordered a 3 inch rear block lift with new shocks.
      should be able to pull it off. May throw on a 1.5 inch body lift.

      Hopefully they fit. 2 inch leveling kit up front. Pre runner bumper. Rears stock. Got -38 mm wheels coming in. 17x9. Shipped today.
      should look good. 🤞 
      much debated topic I didn’t see anything on the size either.
      I’ll be that guy. It should fit nicely I’m thinking. 
      It’s a 33.8x12.2r17 ordered today. 11/2
