Penance's 2016 GMC Denali 1500 Build

Recommended Posts

New to the forums but thought I would start a build log. I recently purchased a 2016 GMC Denali 1500 with the 6.2L motor. I just dropped it off today for the lift kit, wheels, and tires.

 

Current Mods:

20% Tinted front window to match

White front and rear GMC emblems

 

In Progress:

6" Fabtech Lift

20x10 -24 offset Moto Metal MO970 wheels

35x12.50R20 Nitto Trail Grapples

 

Future Mods:

Bushwacker Fender Flares painted to match (waiting on them to release White Frost Tricoat)

Either Diablosport Intune or BB tune

Bak Revolver X2 cover

 

Dropping it off for the lift:

I went with the Gen 2 kit. I liked that the Gen 2 stated it did not widen factory track width, also I didn't really wanna go the slight rake route of the add a leaf.

Small update. I got a call from the guys putting the lift on and he wanted to trade the wheels off my truck for a Bak Revolver X2. Seemed like a fair enough deal to me so looks like that gets moved up on the time line.

Ok guys so here she is. I was also able to get a Bak Revolver X2 installed and get a Diablo Sport I2030 tuner. I will be waiting to tune until I get the magnetic ride censors re-calibrated next Friday.

Bushwacker is saying they will have rivet style pocket fender flares available next week. Now the questions becomes do I go black flares or have them color matched white frost. This truck is becoming my new addiction, lol.

Had the dealer re-calibrate the magnetic ride sensors today and it seems to made a good bit of difference. I can actually tell now when the suspension adjust. It's still not factory ride but much better. I also dropped in the i2030 tuner today with the 93 octane tune. The power seems to be improved and not switching back and forth to v4/v8 is nice. Loving the speedometer being correct as well. Now just can't wait for diablo to update the tunes so that it can tune the transmission.

      We are upgrading to a 2020 GMC AT4 HD 3500 and should be delivered soon.

      So...Look no further for your next tow vehicle! Tow in style, tow with confidence!! This 2015 GMC Denali HD 2500 in Black Onyx has all the bells and whistles and more! She has only 52500 miles on her!
       
      This truck has been upgraded with BlueOx Gooseneck Hitch, a Second 7 Way connector in bed to secure your Gooseneck or Fifth-Wheel camper trailer wiring harness to help you tow in comfort and with confidence. It has also been upgraded with a Pop-A-Lock remote lock actuator for tailgate (unlocks tailgate when you unlock your truck). To help with those horrible GM headlights, this Denali has been upgraded with GTR Lighting Gen 5 HID 5000K headlights and Morimoto XB LED foglights...I cannot begin to tell you how much of a difference this has made! For just that little bit of oomph or MPG, this GMC has also been upgraded with the Banks Ram Air intake and Banks exhaust with chrome tip. Upgraded Shocks to BILSTEIN 5100 series shocks at 43500 miles.
       
      A Banks AutoMind programmer, is available and negotiable with purchase of this 2015 GMC Denali HD.

      Hello everyone,
      On my 2020 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali I did a hood air induction vent swap for a chrome vent cover and while I was at it I added Led RGB lights inside the vent taking care not to restrict the air flow. Has anyone else done any chrome or Led RGB mods? If so lets see them please.

      *New to Forum *First Post I was involved in a rear end collision this morning that damaged mainly my rear bumper. This afternoon I was driving down the highway , and alert popped up saying “Side Detection temporarily unavailable”. I’m trying to figure out if the sensors were possibly damaged in the collision. Taking my yukon in for an inspection of damage tomorrow and want to make sure I include anything that could relate to the accident . Anyone know where the side detection sensors are located?

      Hello brothers and sisters. This is my first forum post. Just wanted to make this so you can show off ur 2019 5.3 Denali and give me some ideas what to do to mine? 

      This is my truck as of right now. Only thing I’ve added was a magnaflow muffler but it’s a bit too stock sounding thinking about going for the muffler delete entirely.  Anyways please share what you’ve done to ur 5.3 Sierra
