    Your truck looks great with the new wheels. It really makes a big difference. :driver: If you have access to a tech2 or other programmer you can correct the speedo if the tire size is different than the originals. I put 2015 Silverado take offs on mine a few years ago along with some factory lug nuts that I found on eBay.

    Appreciate all the comments :) Nice to see others with these wheels too, they really do seem to 'fit' with this body style, not flashy but give it a fresh look.

    100% great idea. As I've been upgrading all the little things that are off pop more I've noticed. This is an easy one I need to take take care of. I figure sand and find spray can for auto but any input welcome (I usually take paint projects/body work to a buddy).

    I hear you. I think if I do a lift it should be when I get new tires for these rims, probably more aggressive and a bit bigger but no guarantee - I do like how it looks at the moment.

    Prob do the cleanup and paint of the hitch area and headlights for now. I like having my projects for the Yukon, since no payments I figure I can drop some cash to keep her fresh ;)

    Clean it up real good and shoot it with some Krylon Satin Black paint. No need to sand just shoot it Satin Black.

    Unless it's very rusty, the hitch comes off pretty easy, 2 or 3 bolts on either side (hitch ends) on the frame, and two on either side of the receiver. Lots easier to paint that way, or to give it to your buddy to paint. Sandblasting would be a plus, but when I did mine it was sandpaper and wire brush. And RustOleum gloss black enamel. I may have shot some clear over that, but I don't recall.

    Ok so I did a brake flush at work on my Yukon the other day. I put new rotors and pads on maybe 3-400 miles ago. The brake pedal is still mushy. Been like that for years. I figured the flush would fix it for sure. The flush basically sucks all the old fluid out of the reservoir. Pressurizes it with new. And you go to each caliper and sucks the remaking old out till you see new fluid. It helped some but not enough. My avy is night and day difference and both have hydroboost. Any ideas? Recent pic of the avy when I met up with a few buddies from another forum for lunch[​IMG]
