Gave the truck a bath today and finished the trans fluid drain and fill. Stopped by the new housing development they were building near me. Of course it's at a dead stop now due to our fuhrer telling everyone to stay home. ImageImageImage

19trax95's 2015 High Country Duramax

That thing looks so perfect. I’m glad you left the chrome accents.

Smoked signals for the front would be great though!

Yeah I'm doing the smoked mirror lights when I do the mirrors, and then probably will slightly tint the amber corners on the headlights.

Steering stabilizer showed up today. Got that thrown on real quick.

Also really thinking about getting some traction bars for the truck. Not sure which brand I want to go with yet. Could also make my own but I'd prefer just some nice brackets ready to install and powder coated the same color as my intake stuff.

Currently eyeballing the WCFab bars. I think I prefer the weld on brackets opposed to bolt on. I'd rather not drill 8 holes in the frame if I can avoid it lol. Image

Probably use some window tint. Not ideal, but eventually I'm going to build a set of lights and ditch the amber all together. So it's only a temporary thing.

Would be interested to know if that stabilizer bar "pulls" to one side or the other? The reviews on the Bilstein are all over the place, some saying it caused steering to pull, others say it doesn't and is awesome.

Yeah I doubt that there is enough force for it to make the truck pull. I saw those reviews but people say a lot of things lol. But who knows. I'll find out tomorrow I guess Haha.

im not sure why someone would think that. steering stabilizers should work the same in both directions. maybe some idiots put a shock on their truck...

Well the stabilizer for these trucks are just like a shock. They will extend when you take the pressure off them. The dual stabilizers would in theory equal each other out. But these only have a spot for one of them.

But on the way to work this morning I didn't notice any pull or anything. Steering is definitely nicer now. No more bump steer.
