Thank you everyone for your thoughts. I get it today or tomorrow. I went with the Denali because the Raptor was a SEMA truck in 2013 and the upgrades would be hard to leave behind with a basic model. Not a damn thing wrong with base model trucks, especially if it's a work truck. But, I have kids, 3 different kinds of trailers and I haul crap all the time. I am splurging to try and resist the urge to modify it. My 4 Runner is for offroad and modifying now!

 

Again, thanks and I WILL post pics for sure!

Congrats yes this should be quite an upgrade from a Ford. I might get myself a 2018 Denali in blue if they make some upgrades and make a darker blue color for me......The stock exh is probably going to be too quiet, you might want to get your dealer to install a GM Borla catback exh just to let the 6.2 breath and growl a bit

Originally i had a 2015 Ram 1500 Big Horn, and prior to that everything else i drove was also Mopar. The Ram is a great truck, don't get me wrong. But my Silverado and Sierra was a lot better for the price paid.

OK, here she is!

 

Yes, this has 22's and I'd like less wheel and more tire to fill the gap.

 

I'll get a Magnaflow exhaust soon.

 

So far, loving' it! Motor is awesome!!!

Hello all!

First post!

 

I just put a deposit down on a 2017 1500 6.2 Denali Ultimate in Blue, Crew Cab / Short bed. Fell in love with this particular blue metallic. I am giving up my 2013 Ford Raptor for this puppy! Soooo, I pulled out all the stops and went for it!!!

I'll have it Monday or Tuesday. Very excited. This SOB is loaded and I need that giving up the Raptor.

 

Tell me I'm gonna love this?

 

 

R.

Did you get your Sierra? If so, how do you like it? Thanks.

      BLUF: Ticking noise under truck, not heard from top of engine compartment.
       
      I noticed a ticking/clicking/pinging noise under my truck today, took a video, hopefully you can hear it.  Anyone else?
       
      Truck was in Park and Neutral (Parking brake engaged) and still heard the sounds.

      Hey everyone. I have a 2016 Sierra Denali. A while back I opted to do away with the magnaride struts and installed BIlstein 6112s in the front with Cognito UCAs and BIlstein 5100s in the rear, also added Xineering bypass kit to clear the Magnaride errors. I had an issue recently with the stop mount on the drivers side strut blowing out. I contacted BIlstein about it and the rep told me he thought he had been told that the distance between the LCA and where the strut mounts into the truck frame at the top on a magnaride equipped Denali is shorter than a normal Sierra and that it was possible that the strut was too compressed, causing it to push through the top mount. Has anyone ever heard this or experienced this issue? I can’t find anything mentioned about it anywhere. I’m taking the truck in next week to get it fixed but if it’s going to just happen again I am wondering if I need to get different struts all together.

      Like new, Pulsar LT for sale, bought direct from manufacturer. Box is included as well, just can't upload a pic of it for some reason.
       
      Had this installed on my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, took this off when I traded it in. Works great, ~10 months of ownership.
       
      Looking for $400, shipping included, within USA. Venmo/Paypal/Zelle preferred.

      Long story short, I think I need to buy springs but don't know which ones to select. RockAuto has 27 different "GM Genuine" coil springs for a 2017 GMC Sierra with 6.2L engine.
       
      I am wanting to match the spring rate of a 2017 GMC Sierra SLT CrewCab 4x4 6.2L.  If someone has this exact truck, maybe they could post their RPO codes please? Or maybe, hopefully, someone has a better idea to get this info?
       
      The long story (if you care to read on) is I have the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali CrewCab 4x4 6.2L with MagneRide shocks & struts.  The truck has just under 60K miles and the ride quality has degraded over time. I know at least 1 shock is bad due to it leaking, no codes have been thrown on the dash.  Due to the mileage and the expense of the MagneRide shocks, I am pursuing replacing them all with conventional shocks and at the same time, getting my truck level.
       
      Several options on the market claiming great ride quality but I'm leaning towards the Bilstein 5100's that I've had on past trucks or the Eibach ProTruck kit E80-23-006-02-22 for $704 that sound great too but I'll need to buy strut mounts and deal with compressing those beasts (others have had issues). Or possibly the RoughCountry E2 loaded struts #501029 - inexpensive but not sure on ride quality + reliability or maybe even Fox 2.0's if I can find them for a good price.  I would even consider the Belltech coilovers #15102 for $650 /pair if I could find someone running them with a positive review.
       
      If/since my MagneRide coil springs aren't the same/compatible, with some kits including the Bilsteins, I'll need to buy new springs, which isn't a huge deal since they aren't too expensive - some as low as $34.  I know Eibach's kit comes with springs included but it appears they have a higher spring rate for trucks with extra weight on the front of their trucks.
       
      Of course, I'll need to deal with the MRC electronics, cheapest I've found is https://www.magdelete.com/collections/sierra-1500 and I may end up just getting the entire kit from him but don't know which springs are used with his either...
       
      It does make some sense that there are so many different GM Genuine coil springs due to there being 3 different engines available, 3 different cab sizes and 4 different trims...
       
      I do zero off-roading or towing and am just looking for a nice street ride with a leveled look.
       
      I welcome input on anything I've said but I'm mainly looking for the proper conventional OEM spring that will match best with my truck.
