    Picked up a new daily driver and tow rig 3 weeks ago. I absolutely love the truck. Installed a McGaughys 2" drop shackle on it today to take out the extreme rake from the factory. While most trucks today are leveled in the front with 33"+ all terrains, I decided to help lowered truck side of the fence by leveling down, and maintaining a great riding truck. I will look at an oversize street tire when our Tahoe needs new tires, and swap these current ones to the Tahoe, and upgrade the trucks stance. I know its not for everybody, but works great for me! Now to decide on removing the running boards as they work out great for the kids and wife 20180414_125858.jpg

    No you did good. I love the reverse level. It looks great. How does it ride? Does it get more bed bounce as a result?

    Thanks! I drove it more today, and don't notice any more bed bounce than before. I do notice the bump stops though especially over speed bumps and deep dips on the road. I am going to look into shorter bump stops today.

    5.3 with eAssist. Getting 3mpg better overall compared to our 2016 Tahoe with the 5.3.

    Does it have a gas cap or the rubber flap? Friend has had issues with the flap on his 2017 as he drives on dirt roads daily.
