What was the SINGLE most favorite mod you did to your truck? MENTION ONLY ONE!

What was the singular most favorite thing you did to your truck? I only want to know your top favorite mod, not a list of what you have.

For me it was the Ultimate9 EVCX throttle controller.

Mine is the BantamX switch controller by SPod. I can add all the lights I want, control a train horn, etc. Makes a very quick and easy install with no need for relays, fuses or other switches. Don’t put a cheaper Amazon light controller in your $100k rig!

This is the touchpad. They also have conventional rocker switches if you want them. I had it installed on the center console, only one hole to mount. An ethernet cable plus into the back of it. You can also access anything connected to the Spod on their phone app.

jealous of the HD trucks with the shifter in the column. All that space. I hate the shifter in the center consoles of the 1500s.
 
R.A.S Road active suspension. These really work like described. A must have for me. I pull a trailer every day View attachment 10509View attachment 10508
Sorry for the reply to an old thread, did you order a special version of this for the ZR2? I just got the Chevrolet 1500 Silverado 1990 - 2024 | HD Kit and its too short to fit on my 2023 ZR2. I asked them in a chat and they said it would fit, did you have any issues?

I did have a problem with mine , but it wasnt to short. The actual coil spring on the R.A.S was hitting on the keeper of the leaf springs. I called them and they sent me a different version. On the new one the adjusting bolt was shorter so it made the spring not hit keeper. If your truck is the same as mine you will need front adjustable bar in the second hole back. Then just barley start all thread. Maybe just a couple of threads. I hope this all makes sense.20240128_161634.jpg
 
My steps. Had not use these before. Usually had tubes. Super happy with higher profile but functional for my worn out body. Lol

I appreciate your reply. I actually just watched another video from etrailer and they showed how to increase the length, I guess they come short to fit in the box. I am gonna try again tomorrow if weather permits. Not having a garage sucks lol

How do you like it by the way now that its on and running? do you pull anything?

They work great. Not as much squat. And make pulling my trailer a much better ride. I pull a 6000 to 8000lb trailer. Plus I have about 500lbs of tools in the bed. When you install these try to move the front adjustable pin to the 4th hole back from the end. Even if there are just a couple threads to start the all thread. When you start to tighten you will gain alot more threads on all thread. If I had done this I might have been able to make my first set work. You just don't want that coil spring to hit leaf spring keeper. When you start putting together this will make more sense. There instructions leave out some of this
info.

One more thing. I tightened mine to the max. Both white and black disc together was my gap. They said this was max I could go.
 
I got it on in the third hole, the bracket itself was too small to fit the fourth hole. I took it for a test drive and didn’t hear it hitting anything going down bumpy dirt roads. Looking forward to testing out the camper later this summer. Appreciate your feedback!

I just installed the RAS so I can’t pick that until I try towing with it so I will say the Bulletpoint Mounting Solution https://www.bulletpointmountingsolutions.com/

It’s kind of expensive but it looks like it’s factory and works really well. Very high quality. I have mag safe magnet mount for my iPhone and an arm for my RV backup camera screen.

The Bulletproof is great if you want to mount multiple items. If you just have a cell phone, the Offroam product I bought is a better choice IMPO.
