My new '16 All Terrain

Recommended Posts

Hey all, been lurking here for a few weeks since I was planning a purchase. Last night I bought a '16 All Terrain SLT Premium package double cab 5.3 / 8spd 4wd. Love the truck so far. My plan was to just level it and be done since I'm sick of blowing all my extra money on car parts. I ordered a rough country 1305 leveling kit this week so I had it before I bought the truck. Drove it home from the dealership and got busy with the leveling kit. Installed that, removed the side steps, door moldings and all the dealership decals. Eventually I'll probably get color matched mirror caps and door handles then add the base black window trim. I might also do the e85 flex fuel conversion and tune that I read about on here previously. Anyways, here's a couple pics.

Sorry for another quick reply but I'm using tapatalk and it's telling me my pic uploads are too big.

 

And here's what I just sold to put me in the market for a new truck. 2014 Super Duty 6.7 4wd. I had my fun with it but I wanted something that actually fits in my garage and I can park around town easily. I pretty much just got bored with it.

Sweet! Looks like you installed rear blocks as well?

Yep, went ahead and did the full rough country kit. I like a little rake. Front measurements before level were roughly 36.5", ended up at 39.5" afterwards. Rear I don't remember the numbers offhand but i do remember it was damn near perfectly level with just the front kit installed. I like a little rake so I went ahead and did the rear blocks too. Only drove to the gas station and back so far, seems like it drove the same. Getting alignment tomorrow. That leveling kit was a pretty funny install for me because I typically breeze through crap like that but I tried to take shortcuts and install it like lots of people do which is to not remove all the stuff Rough Country tells you to in the instructions. It just wasn't happening, I fought with the drivers side for a couple hours. I ended up just disconnecting the upper ball joint and steering linkage as rough country recommends and I had tons of room. Passenger side took literally maybe 30 mins since I just disconnected everything from the start. Also, I assumed a double cab would be steel control arms so I ordered the leveling kit for steel. I ended up having aluminum so I had to make a trip to Home Depot to buy the correct sized bolts for aluminum control arms (M10 1.5 90mm). Luckily they had exactly four of them in stock.

comparison between the Ford and GMC ?

Just a completely different truck so it's hard to compare ya know? A huge lifted diesel on 37's is a different animal lol. This Sierra is definitely nicer because of all the options. The F250 was an XLT with just basic power options. I'm enjoying the nice quiet ride, 8" touchscreen and bose audio. The 5.3 8 speed combo seems perfectly sufficient for what I do which is basically just drive it around town.

Nice truck, I just picked up my '16 a couple weeks ago and also looking at this leveling kit. I came from a tuned LMM Duramax and forgot how lacking the 5.3 is compared to that. Still love my 1/2 ton though. Are you thinking of doing any tuning on the new ride?
