And if there is an update, what brand of tire?  I'd like a 275/70/17 but most brands skip from 265 to 285 widths for their 17" tires.

Well the only update I have so far sadly, is that my wheels are back ordered. It has been nothing but a PITA. My local discount tire told me that they would be there a few days after Christmas, I called on the 31st they told me that they did not receive them I waited till Friday the 4th and called for an update. They informed me that the manufacturer will have them back ordered to the end of February at the latest, but potentially by then end of January. Still have not received any up data from them in a couple weeks. 

 

I went with BFG K02 in 275/70 17 on a walker Evan's 17x8.5 wheel.

It would also depend on the backspace of the wheels if they will rub... But a 275 /70/17 shouldn't have any issues as its only 1/2" not much larger in diameter than stock

The back space I believe is 4.79" and the off set is I think 1mm if I remember. I don't remember what come stock on these trucks.

Finally some good news! I got a call this morning on my way to work from my local discount tire. My wheels are now in! I stopped by to check out the wheels and they look awesome to say the least. I'm taking it over tomorrow morning to have them mount the new tires and tpms and I'll get the truck back on Wednesday morning as I work weird hours and I have to commute to work about 65 miles away. Expect some pictures of it either Wednesday or thursday!

Here's a sneak peak of the left front mounted. Only thing missing is the center cap.

Here is the finished product I love them. I dont really feel that the truck rides any different with the load range E tires. Also it irks rubbing the fender liner just a hair so I'll zip tie it back.

Walker Evans makes wheels? Interesting. My last 3 snowmobiles have used their suspension. I have mixed reviews on that end of their business, especially their early shocks...

 

Looks great, with W.Evans being an off-road company, are those functional bead locks? How is the rub if any? The 0 offset should put you about right to not have any. Too much positive offset, you rub the sway bar and UCA, too much negative offset and you rub the bumper, air dam, fender liner. You can always add some 2" lift shocks at a later date, rather than a level kit. Not a fan of them either anymore after installing a RC Level in my brothers F150. Sketchy angles and clearances.

      Took my 2017 Chevy Silverado z71 to the dealer today . Engine was ticking on top end sounded like a lifter tick and slight deeper knock in bottom end . oil presure was all over the place would go from 65 psi to 25 psi at same rpm. I have 44,000 miles. Has anyone else had this issue?  With the strike in play who know how long I will be without my truck.

      Hello Everyone,
       
      I have been looking at adding a couple of cameras to my 2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD Denali.  These trucks can be difficult to pull into parking spaces and lots, especially if they are smaller.  I just recently raised the front end about 2-3 inches, this has made parking a even bigger challenge.    Yes, when parking I try to back into most of the parking spaces, but sometimes that option isn't available.
       
      The system I have been looking at is from Echomaster, this system is listed under GM accessories and is labeled Intellihaul.  The multi-camera system comes complete with a interface module, wiring, two (2) cameras that are mounted within a black mirror trim piece that attaches to the bottom of the mirror.  The trim level on my Denali comes with trailer towing mirrors that are all chrome, and I really didn't want to substitute the lower black trim pieces in place of the chrome.   I have seen one and it didn't look that good, on the all black mirrors they look OK (Just my preference). 
       
      Echomaster has just recently released a new 3rd brake lamp camera that has three (3) different viewing angles within a single camera,  a right 95 degree,  a left 95 degree and a rear 90 degree.  Then all I would have to do is add the front facing camera.  In this arrangment, I would have to utilize a multi-camera module, this module is complete with wiring harness, bracket and OEM interface jumper cable.  However, the new released 3rd brake lamp camera only has one (1) video output.  I would have to hard wire 3 more input triggers to make this function correctly, the left and right turn signals and reverse triggers.  To operate on the OEM radio screen, I would have to depress the "back" button for three (3) seconds until the camera icons appeared on the screen. This would give me the rear cargo area.   To view both the blind spot camera views, I would have to cycle the left or right turn signal depending on which camera I want to view.  I would also have a front facing camera installed in the grill area, which would assist in parking manuevers.  In this setup, I still would have full operation of the OEM backup camera when in reverse.  I think this would be a good option and give me what I was looking for. 
       
      When I talked to the tech assistance at GM this afternoon, he said that the system would be awkward to operate. I would like something that is plug-n-play, a system that I didn't have to rely on to take to dealer to program the radio, BCM or any other related modules. 
       
      What is everyone doing about adding cameras to your truck, what sytem and options have you looked at and/or are utilizing?
       
      Do you like your truck with the camera addition? 
       
      What are your thoughts?      
       
      Thanks,

      I was hoping y’all could help me on my decision. I have a 2019 custom trail boss 5.3 with AFM 6 speed. I called the local dealership here and asked how my warranty would be effected if I disable the AFM. They told me “as long as that tune didn’t cause the damage of whatever i bring the truck in for all is well.” So they recommended me to a local tuner here in town which was surprising. I called him and he said to disable my AFM it would cost around 500. I do know about the range device but I don’t want to to deal with the battery issues it can cause if you mistakenly leave it plugged in. My other option is the hand held tuners such as a diablo. I have zero experience  with them but I am going to put in a cold air intake and flow master 44 exhaust in the future. Would my best bet be the Diablo tuner to disable the AFM and use it to adjust my truck to my other mods or go with the professional tuner?
