  2. I did most everything on my '04.5...................almost all of it's documented here in posts.
  3. I really want to believe this............................
  4. I think there was/is supposed to be a 3rd video for this; but it's held up due to him mentioning NAMES in the 1st two videos. I read that there's some litigation going on.
  5. Not a big fan of this guy..................but he talks a lot of sense here in these.................. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4DQ-jzKQRw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09JsDorR6tw
  6. They claim that the Range AFM delete module is undetectable. I would think that if they want to dig deep they could find out how many times that AFM is active per key start ups or something like that.
  7. 54,5xx miles on my '16 Silverado bought new. AFM has been deleted on my truck via running in M5 or by using the Range AFM delete module. In all the miles on my truck.............I'll bet less than 10 miles have been in V4 mode. Still pull 20+mpg on the highway running 70mph+.
  8. The only problem I've had with that switch is if I try to "ease" it on and off. Just press it, and let it click solidly/hard vs. trying to baby it.
  9. Sorry for not replying sooner guys; I've been out of town for almost 3 weeks. Illinois to Louisiana to Florida to central Illinois back to northern Illinois. 3500 miles in less than 3 weeks. Did a work trip to Nashville, TN 4 weeks prior to that towing my work trailer............that was another 1200 miles. I have just 15% left on the OLM and I just changed the oil about a week before my Nashville trip. My range AFM delete module has been working flawlessly. All the above mile were with it. Averaged about 15mpg running 65mph on the Nashville trip towing. And 20-22mpg running 70-75mph on the other trip......non-towing. I use this handy little switch to keep from having to plug in and then unplug the Range device all the time. https://www.amazon.com/Tonsiki-Female-Diagnostic-Extension-battery/dp/B00UR5XBMW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1540069486&sr=8-3&keywords=tonsiki+obd+cable It keeps the Range from draining my battery if I don't use my truck for a few days................very, very rare for me though. I have read that the newer Range devices don't drain the battery like the older versions as they have a "shut off" in them now. Anyhow; the little switch works great................click it on prior to starting the truck, and click it off after shutting the truck down. Also have 51,0xx miles on this 2016 Silverado in just over 27 months of ownership.
  10. UPDATE: I got the Bilstein 5100's installed on the front end of my truck on April 27; so I've had time to evaluated them, long term. There is a local shop about 1.5 miles away that said they'd swap the shocks out in the coil-overs/struts no problem. So on April 27, I pulled out the struts on the '16 Silverado, dropped them into a large backpack, slung it on my back, and rode my bicycle to the shop. Took about 25 minutes to complete both. Charged my $55.00 and I rode my bicycle home. 2 hours laters I had the 5100's installed. I have them set at 1.25" of lift in the front. Well 3 months later the verdict is that these shocks are the "REAL DEAL"!!! Even set with the slight 1.25" lift; these shock, at that setting ride better than the stock ones did at OEM height. IMHO; the stock ones had no dampening on "extension". Very pleased with the decision to do this mod.
