Installed a 3" body lift over the weekend.  Now got to figure out why I've got a Stabilitrak and Traction Control error.  Thinking maybe a bad ground - had to remove a few and maybe I didn't get one put back good.

So, what did you run?

With the stock 5.3L, no performance mods, and after 3 attempts...

My best was 82 MPH / 16 Seconds for the 1/4 mile.

 :B:Spent the last 3 days (spare time) sanding and painting my mud guards with fusion. That rough finish is not easy to sand. I could rob a bank and no finger prints. :wave:

Finally finished up a big job for a "blue hair" she was a sweetie and gave me a nice tip "to get some pancakes and beers with your Avalanche friends" at Vermontville Syrup Festival.
Now I just have to get Ava prepped for her first parade!!! (our little girl is growing up so fast!)

MMMMM Pancakes and Beer!! lol!!!

I can tell you what I didn't do - Install one of these: N-Fab Pre-Runner Bar.  Been on order for 6 weeks and still waiting!  

3 weeks ago I called and asked if they could expedite - I was going to need it this weekend.  "No Problem" dey sez.  Should ship on the 20th.  "Great" I sez.  Called last week.  "Ya, No Probla Mon!".  Call today "Um, it's going to be at least another week to finish + shipping time."   :E:  :E:  :beating:

(So should I sue them if my front bumper get's fubar'd?)

It's a little late, but this weekend I had the stock muffler/resonator cut out.  I installed a Flowmaster 40 series with a 4" tip.  It sounds AH-MAZE-ING!!!!!
