    What did you do with your H3 recently? NEW

    Well might as well start this thread again, so post up! If you have old info you want to save in here, throw it in here! If the old thread is resurrected then please delete this one!

    Ill start:

    This past March, i traded in my daily for a new daily. My old daily was an 01 suburban with 110XXX miles, which isn't bad however everything underneath was rusted to hell. The rear pinion bearing gave out completely and almost grenaded the rear diff. The tech at the dealer said he pulled out a handful of metal from the diff. Needless to say they were willing to give me on trade in what i was expecting to get, even with the pending repair. So I snagged a nice 2015 silverado extended cab, matching color too!


    I had the BA bumper and rock rails blasted and coated in line-x platinum/premium, whichever one is their highest quality spray, to ensure it won't fade from UV rays.





    I also threw on the engo 10k-s winch that has been sitting in my closet for 3 years. Installing this bumper by yourself is not the easiest thing to do, but doable.



    I also took off my old offroad lights that weren't working and the old wiring atrocity that they were hooked up to.
    Old wires


    New lights are KC pro sport gravity leds (spot beam), led wiring harnesses are so simple its stupid. I used only 1 harness even though its 2 set of lights. I bought some splitters from here http://www.speeddemonlights.com/harn...rness-end.html They work great and let me run all 4 lights off of one switch.



    I also picked up a gauge pod from a guy on facebook who was taking the time to custom build and paint them. I plan on installing an oil pressure gauge and transmission temp gauge. I want this done right and the wiring and install to look as close to OEM so im waiting on doing anything until i have everything all planned out. However i do have the pod installed, gives me a nice view of the airbag behind it!



    I also did do an muffler delete, i'm getting the pipe extended this week so that the plastic on the bumper doesn't melt.
    Here's a clip, i think it sounds decent, not ricy at all.

    I need to powder coat my Gobi rack and BA winch bumper again. Just had a crate 5.3 installed.

    Should've paid attention to the name. Alpha
    Nice! I was thinking about doing this myself. How loud is it mashed in the throttle? Are you planning on running it out the rest of the way under the bumper?

    Haha. and yes i did have a shop extend the pipe. its really not that loud, especially with it pumping out behind the bumper like it should. It has the loudest drone at 3500-4k rpms. At full throttle, the engine wine is louder than the exhaust lol.

    Yep. Lost a rod and was burning oil. Cheaper to replace than rebuild. $3200 for a new crate with my take out as a core.

    Finally got around to putting my OutfitterDesign HD Tie-Rods on. Didn't notice that one of my stock rods had a slight bend until I looked carefully at the pic

    Thanks CG for starting this up again. All I did was get it washed yesterday and drive it about 60 miles around town. And pulled out some of the tools that had been sitting in there since the last run.

    Used her today today to pickup supplies for our bathroom renovation. Roof rack is great for sheets of plywood and drywall.
