    Build Thread from CARiD - 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500

    Whether you’re after horsepower and torque, fuel economy, ride comfort or reliability, the Duramax-equipped rigs coming from Chevy are tough to beat – they hold their value much better than their competitors. New Chevrolet Silverado 2500 6.6L Midnight Edition in classic Black color proves it the best. That's why we've chosen it for our new project and this post is going to be the first one in our build thread.

    We've teamed with our friends at Afe and our first video review is dedicated to their Power Package, designed for our project truck. This package includes 2 most successful and dyno-proven Afe products - Momentum Air Intake System and Scorcher Tune Module. Both of them result in additional 70 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, that wasn't possible with the factory setup.

    Links to these products:

    aFe® - Momentum™ HD Aluminum Black Cold Air Intake System

    aFe® - Scorcher HD Module

    Our tech expert Greg prepared a detailed video review, where he describes all the features of this Power Package, shows how it should be installed and tests it on the road.



    We are yet to find out how great this truck can be, once it's loaded with the best aftermarket accessories available. Stay with us – subscribe to this thread and our Youtube channel to follow on the news!

    What upgrade would you like to see next on our Project Chevy Silverado?

    Hello everyone! We are back with next addition to our Chevy Silverado project. It took awhile for us to decide, which way to go, but the decision was pretty obvious – a tonneau cover. Its one of the first add-ons most truck owners get for their rigs and one of the most popular questions on the truck forums – what tonneau cover to choose. Hopefully, video review from our tech expert Greg will be helpful for those, who are searching for the perfect tonneau cover on today's market with tons of options available.

    Guys from BAK knows better than anyone else, that you might use your truck's bed in different ways, whether it's carrying your expensive tools, kid's bikes, outdoor equipment or anything else. Their BakFlip MX4 Premium Folding Tonneau Cover safeguard your truck bed against dirt, grime, rain and snow thanks to its heavy-duty matte aluminum construction.



    BAK® - BakFlip MX4 Premium Folding Tonneau Cover

    The interior of the BakFlip MX4 is outfitted with a high-density foam core specially formulated to provide superior strength with moisture and decay resistance. Thanks to its flush-mount design, the installation of the BakFlip is a piece of cake without any drilling required - Greg tried it himself and shares his experience with the audience.

    If you are looking for a hard folding tonneau cover that literally does it all, BakFlip MX4 from BAK is the right way to go! See you guys later with our next Chevy Silverado addition!

    Re: Build Thread from CARiD - 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500

    New upgrade to our Chevy Silverado project truck is already on and today we are here with the next review. We thought what can help our truck to take on any trail with confidence prior to going with a lift kit and our friends from Fox came up with a solution. Our review is dedicated to their 2.0 Performance Series Shocks and their installation on our Chevy Silverado.

    Fox offers some impressive benefits with this product over typical shocks, like excellent levels of travel with improved rebound and compression while the remote reservoirs increase the oil capacity and move hot oil out of the shot for a massive reduction in fade even on the roughest terrain. Their shocks are designed as a direct replacement for stock suspension or aftermarket lifts kits and feature hassle-free bolt-on installation. When it comes to a comfortable on-road ride and predictable off-road handling in even the toughest conditions or variable temperatures, Fox shocks are the ones you can count on.

    Watch Greg's new video review below. Experience yourself the incredible performance and precise control that Fox shocks deliver!

    After adding Fox Performance Shocks to our Chevy Silverado we decided that we want something even more radical, and contacted our friends from ReadyLift. We've chosen their 8'' Lift Kit, available for 2011-2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD/3500HD 2WD/4WD trucks.

    ReadyLift is #1 preferred manufacturer of truck Suspensions Leveling and Lift Kits that are guaranteed to retain your factory ride while providing the looks and lift every truck owner wants. Their lift kit allows you to use a larger wheel and tire combinations (Max Tire Size: 37"x12.50"), while keeping that smooth OEM ride and drivability. ReadyLift Kit includes heavy-duty welded steel crossmembers, iron knuckles, cast iron rear lift blocks with integrated bump stop landing pads, tubular upper control arms with a corrected ball joint angle and heavy-duty ball joints, assorted hardware and accessories and SST3000 shocks. Combined together, all these components offer balanced lifting force and really help to achieve that height that you need for maximum performance.
