    RCSB 4x4 ride quality - Belltech Shock Review

    This is more of a general statement, and honestly could also fit into Lifting Tech, but I'm lowered. One thing that I have always complained about was the shitty ride quality of my RCSB on the Rancho shocks that the Z71 package is "graced" with. I find my father's '15 ECSB All Terrain Z71 rides...

    Aftermarket and OEM headunit both installed and working?

    I'm working on a hypothetical situation in my head here. I have a 2016 F250 for work, and obviously not having an AUX, or bluetooth in the truck while I"m driving sucks. I have an FM transmitter but the quality sucks. My question is, how would I go about installing an aftermarket headunit in...

    K2XX Bed Side Stone Chip Protection

    If you're like me and you drive your truck during winter months, and they sand/salt the roads where you are, or you drive down dirt roads, you've probably noticed stone chips on the lower front corners of the bed side. I noticed a few weeks back that GM has started putting guards on those...

    No F*CKS Given Tahoe

    So... my buddies and I were thinking it'd be fun to do a Haggard Garage style YouTube series with my friend's Tahoe that he bought for cheap and uses as a beater. It's beat to fuck, has a bunch of bumper stickers on the back glass, and dents from drunk people trying to Dukes of Hazzard slide...

    Minor changes to the forum

    Some of you may have noticed some shuffling of child forums in the ROTM and ROTM Hall of fame area, it's just me changing things around to keep track of winners every year when it comes calendar time. I ran into an issue where I accidentally messaged a few winners from past years looking for...

    Flip kit vs. shackle and block delete

    So here's my issue. I've decided on a 2/4", and I'm going to use DJM LCA's to get the 2" drop up front, however, since I don't have the proper tools to safely pull the rear of my truck apart to do a flip kit, and labor rates are RIDICULOUS, I'm looking at a cost effective solution to drop the...

    How To: Console wireless phone charger | 2015 Sierra SLE

    So last week I had the bright idea of installing a QI wireless smartphone charger in the center console lid of my truck. I have the 40/20/40 split seats with the jump seat. This install is slightly different for trucks with a full console. I'll make note of that in my write up, as the how-to I...

    Drop shackles clunking?

    So as many of you know, I have 2" belltech drop shackles (should have gone 3") Anyway, this morning I noticed a new clunk coming from the rear of the truck. I don't know whether to attribute it to the cold, since the temperature dipped from 5*C (41*C) to -6*C (21.2*F) overnight, or if...

    Discussion: Catch Cans and Direct Injection

    As many of you know I'm now the proud owner of a 2015 GMC Sierra with the Direct Injection LT based 5.3L "Ecotec" V8. I've been doing some rummaging around the Interwebs about Direct Injection engines and carbon build up in the intake track and valves. Basically my readings only confirmed...

    Wanted: Trade my Chrome for your All Terrain parts

    So basically I'm just putting it out there that, if someone's crazy enough to NOT like their Stone Blue Metallic GMC All Terrain painted front end, I'll even trade that person my chrome front end parts. I am located in Sudbury, ON. The closer to Canada the better. This is me now: I...

    14+ Kill Switch

    Hey guys, Been thinking of doing this one for a while, but I can't dig anything up on running a kill switch for my fuel pump on the 14+ trucks. Does anyone have access to wiring diagrams on these new trucks that'd help me out any? Even a kill switch on the ignition system. I'd like a...

    Question: BUG REMOVAL

    Bugs Need I say more? I hate bug & tar remover. I think I've used it twice. What's the best method for removing them, without harming the finish? Honestly if there's a way to do it without stripping the wax off of the hood that'd be awesome too. I have to be selective of weather/time of...
