On another note, shop just called and said the shackles are installed, problem- free! He said they didn't even cut the pinch weld, just bent it over enough for clearance. Pics to follow!

Drove it to work today, and on my way home finally hit 100k on the odometer. Got the truck with 65,841 miles back on June 23rd of 12'. Now on Dec 14, 2018 I hit 100k.

So ended up returning the Exo Grappler's. Great tires, performed absolutely amazing, felt like a mud tire in the mud instead of an AT, and rocked it in the snow and rain. Downfall was that they hold rocks, I live in the country, and have a long rocked driveway, and the rocks get between the lugs, well they dont come out on the country roads, they wait till you are on the highway doing 65+ mph, then they decide to clean out, my poor truck was taking a beating daily.

Luckily @Discount Tire has killer customer service, took the tire back without any hassle. Ended up getting a set of Goodyear Ultra Terrain's mounted up (35x12.50r17). Very quiet tire, seem to do good in the mud (not as good as the Exo, but way better than a TKO2). Supposed to have a nice little storm come in this weekend so will see how they do in the rain and snow...




Oh ya, and this happened... It was on sale, and I was sick of the stock antenna, dont judge me.


As a side note, anyone thinking about gearing, or running bigger tires and haven't thought about gearing, don't hesitate, just DO IT! Aside from EFI Live this is single handedly the most noticeable performance improvement I have done to my truck.

Normal driving, before I did gears I reset my EGT records and drove around for 3 days, hot was 1200 (climbing the hill up to my house). After gears, reset EGT records again, same style driving for 3 days, checked the EGT's, highest they got was 950! Insane how much cooler the truck is running, way more power off the line, and the tranny feels like it is way happier when shifting. As an added bonus, I picked up 1.5-2 mpg. With 35's and 4.56's I am not getting better MPG then I was when I was running just the 33.7" tire with stock 3.73's.

Reset the DEF heater code. Again. Just gonna keep doing that until I have to money for the exhaust and I can yank all that shit out. Very happy with the truck now that its tuned, just need to hurry and delete/lift pump it. If only they weren't so proud of the damn pumps

Replaced lights and rewired the whole trailer for my dads Christmas present. I'm sure he will enjoy not fighting with grounds and busted housings.

Also finally threw the LEDs under the bumper so I can see alittle better backing down the drive.

2012 Silverado Duramax:
-Installed a new 9005 high beam bulb on the DS (fixed a hyper blink issue)(seemed like parking lights would strain when unlocking doors during a remote start)(all bulbs minus tail light bulbs are new)

-Installed new Bosch wipers

-Washed it


Plan is to take it for an inspection tomorrow and hoping it passes even though I could see the rock chip tore the passenger wiper a little.

I'm planning on dropping mine but I wonder what simple drop shackles do to the pinion angle. It seems to me that the pinion would point too low after lifting only the rear of the spring. How does yours look?

I'm thinking more of doing both ends of the spring with replacement front mounts and rear drop shackles.
