Hey ya'll, I'd like to have some opinions on my prospective engine build I'd like to start some time this year.
My truck as it sits is just a stock L33 5.3 minus CAI and Tuner.
So here we go....
I have decided, now that I only drive my big truck once a week or so, that it's time to finally make it my dream truck :happy:
My truck is an 05 sierra Z71. It came factory with 4.10 gears and...
Swat 13, I really really like all of them lol, which is why I wanted help deciding.
I'm going with a body lift because I can put it on myself and have less than 300 in it. A suspension lift.........
I got an 05 z71 4x4
stock 4.10 gears :gasp:
And I got 18 driving home from Clemson on the interstate. And I get around 14 city. But then again I dont do 80 because thats like 2500 rpms lol
The easiest way to decide. Get on level ground and measure to the center of the fender, through the center of the tire on both the front and back.
Thats how you can accurately measure how much...
Im just wanting black because chrome is just too much for me. My old truck had a lot of chrome and looked good, but then again a charcoal truck looks horrible with black rims, to me anyways. And all...
I'd like to hear your thoughts and suggestions about my plans!
05 1500 Z71 109k
2" Body lift
22x9.5 Ultra Mavericks or 22x10 Black Rockstars or 22x10 XD thumps
Or all the same...
Well I learned a lot about what to and what not to do to these vortec engines with my old 03 silverado on 36's to my new 05 sierra z71 on 34s.
Don't - Buy a CAI or throttle body spacer; why?
If I go 14 bolt im goin 10.5
But i like the idea of changing the front to 8 lug, would it just be a direct bolt up and would it take a lift kit out of the equation for me?
Well I'll probably get a 14 bolt then!
But could I put 30 spline 6 lugs out of the 10 in the 14 bolt or would i have to get adapters??
I'm not much of an axle person so I still wanna tinker on...
Haven't been on in a while and I've gotten a new truck, I went from a 03 1500hd 2" body and 36s to an 05 z71 sierra with the 5.3 and 4.10 gears!!! (I personally will never, never, never, ever buy...
just bought myself an 05 Sierra 1500 z71 :) 95k. Still smells new btw.
I hooked up my programmer out of my old 2500 and went to set the tire size/ gear ratoio and it started my gear ratio out at...
I can fit 37's on a 2" body lift on my 1500 HD
A Z71 with for keys can fit 35-12.50's with rubbing.
But if you ain't rubbin you aint riddin!!!!
But yes 305's will fit o stock rims. but when you...
I got a much welcomed 2 mpg improvement after I hooked up my new bully dog programmer with the driving coach. I thought I was an efficient driver but that really helps.
So i went from a whopping 10...
So my buddy has a 2004 GMC 2500HD, 6" fabtech lift and 3" body lift on 42 iRoks. He's going to straight axle it and said that he would sell me the entire 6" lift and entire fron suspension assembly,...
this one appeals to me. is it the ones yall are talking...
well see thunderracing.com has the cam packages with the old man cam that I was thinkin of getting. but i hardly ever pull anything besides a 1964 massey ferguson 65 once in a blue moon
I have 35's...
I'm going to put a cam in my 6.0 since the top end needs to be rebuilt anyways, I want one that starts at idle and on up. Whats a good cam to get and will i need new lifters and springs etc.
you can run 35-12.50 with stock rims and a levelin kit. You'll rub but hey if you aint rubbin you aint ridin!!!
i know people with 35-1250 and 20s
I got a 1500hd with a 2" body lift and I can run...
Yea the coopers look good. I like the KM2's but i wish they still made the original BFG mud terrain
I really want something thats got sidewall.
Thornbirds look NASSSSHHHHHHTYYYYYY comin down the...
Well I've been looking for some good mud tires.
I want boggers but i cant pay $1400 and only get 12000 out of them
So what are some other tires that look good pull decent and come in 35-1250-1450...
So i got a 03 1500HD with the 4L80e and it's startin to go.
I absolutely hate hate hate the way it shifts. They never really want to gear up until it's in the final overdrive. I really like the way...
So 4.88s would be good. One thing I really won't do is play in my truck other than the typical south carolina tradition of donuts in random yards.
All if this is just a little pre-planning. This...
Hey I'm new to the forum so if this is the wrong place sorry. In the spring I plan to put a 6 in lift on my 03 1500HD, 16" rims and 37-38.5's I already have a 2" body lift and keys with 35's.
