    20" Rims on 1998 K1500

    you cant really fit larger than 33" tires without cutting or lifting from what ive read. 285/75r16 is the largest you can fit from what ive seen which is 32.8" tall. i just put on 295/35r24s which is 32.1" and those don't rub full lock but its close.

    Thoughts on wheel choice? GMC 20s vs Cadillac 22s. Torn on options

    This is my existing wheel setup. 2017 GMC 20s Debating swapping to 2022 Cadillac 22s (crappy photoshop) I have an immediate buyer lined up if I were to swap, so the sale will be easy. While I do like the OEM snowflakes and get tons of compliments, I'd like to have a slightly bigger OEM...

    Alternators

    all 3 brands listed are fantastic. i'd add in singer (not stinger) alternators as well. i know multiple people with dc power alts with 100k+ miles on them. i myself have 2 singer 370a large case alts (and 1 CES 370a), which are rated for about 220a at idle. if you want better idle output (and...

    Replacing oil pressure gauge motor

    those amazon motors will NOT work for our vehicles. you need the specific air core motor for the oil gauge. each of them are different. one for coolant temp will not work for oil pressure. fuel wont work for voltage, etc. they are between $20 and $40 on ebay.

    hairpin stators are a newer technology. no gmt400 or even gmt800/900 came with a hairpin alt from factory. my 2014 ford had a 160a hairpin alt from factory

    Overdrive alternator pulley

    large case hairpin stator alts put out great power at idle and are direct drop in replacement. 270a units put out 200a at idle all day. even the 370a alts on my truck are rated for about 220 at idle. they also offer better cooling than small case alts. even small case hairpin stator alts put...

    Alternator help…

    this is correct. same reason why the blower motor plug and wiring melts and can catch fire when the blower motor starts to go out. factory wiring is built to an absolute minimum spec. similar goes for the headlight switch. you get much brighter lights running your own headlight relay harness...

    Are there any pre-bent front brake line (and hose) kits for a 99 Tahoe 4WD w/ ABS?
