What have you done to your Silverado ZR2 this week? 🛠️

Let's see what you have done with your Silverado ZR2!
This came in today! When I removed the front valance I discovered that GM employee left one of their tools in my truck. Happy with the ease of install. Took it out for spin today and there’s a nice growl when get on it!

Just installed the J&L oil seperator I got from American Trucks. I'll check it within a month to see if it collected anything.

I really like the J&L oil separator. I’ve been running one for quite some time now. I do recommend putting clamps on the hoses at all the connection points. As the temps under the hood rise, the hoses can become a little loose. Probably not enough to come off, but maybe enough to cause a leak. I bought a box of black worm clamps from Amazon. I installed them with the drive part on the bottom of the hose so they are hardly noticeable.

Not a fan of the open box filters. Draw in hot air. Best to go with a closed box system if you're hell bent on installing a CAI. Much better options out there.

Love my J&L and 100% agree on putting hose clamps on the lines. I get an ounce every 1500-2000 miles.
 
Installed the Cognito Ball Joint Upper Control Arms and Peak leveling kit. As @Stevebag383 had started about a similar setup, it’s dead level now.

I chose this Cognito UCA kit because I plan on running the stock wheels and tires for a bit; and Cognito does not recommend their other UCA kits with stock wheels and tires.

Very happy with the results.

Have you noticed any hissing with the hoses? That seems to be a common complaint.
Yes, you do have a hissing sound under the hood if you listen closely. It's really not that bad and once you close the hood you don't hear it. I spoke to J&L and they said that's the vacuum rushing through the longer hoses and not a leak. I've seen folks run some HVAC armaflex pipe insulation and that does quiet it down. I'm not picky so it doesn't bother me.
 
nice rig!
Thanks. (y)

You carrying your sidearm today?

Fortunately, I don't live in Albuquerque or Bernallilo county, so it's still legal for me to be armed. I don't want to derail this thread too much, but I've made my feelings known to my local State Representative and Senator. I would be surprised if that EO lasts 30 days. I've already seen calls to impeach her, the next few weeks are going to be interesting.
