  1. Past hour
  2. Where did you run the wires to? The interior and then to your parking lights? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That's what I would do because you are going to have the DRLs on anyways so it's going to look very good being on all the time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That's insane! I just ordered marker lights today actually to do this Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. PJ Dump Trailer

    Looks great, i'd love to get a hydraulic dump trailer in the future. Lets see a pic of it once you pick er up!
  6. Been a member here for a long time, but not active for quite a while. Just got a new-to-me '99 Z71 2dr Tahoe in indigo blue. Have a few quick issues that I want to discuss before I tear into it. It is a LS trim, Z71, 3.73s, non-G80 (what...?), cloth, power driver's seat, top-level sound system (cassette and CD), barn doors. 1. The driver's door lock actuator is weak. When I look at replacements I get two different styles. I am guessing this is because it's a '99 and still part of the GMT 400 family (born in Dec 98). I'd rather not take the door panel off to find out what it looks like. Anyone have a part number or photo of exactly what is needed...? 2. It's push-button-4wd (not what I preferred, but...). The buttons work but the indicator lights do not stay on. My first thought is it could be the sensors on the front axle and/or transfer case. I'd like to know what others have experienced with this. I haven't observed anything blatantly wrong with the wiring, connections, etc. 3. She goes down the road like a dream, but seems a little gutless when you get down on the throttle hard. My first inclination is to put a fuel filter on it. It has had a recent tune-up and runs smooth (new air filter, wires, etc). This is the first 88-99 I have owned personally, but I used to maintain my father-in-law's '91 SCSB 4x4. Lots of bolt on mods I did to it and it was not gutless when I started with it. Not horrible, but not what I expected. Truck has sat so the gas might be a bit weak. 4. Rear diff. Looks like a 12-bolt. Books say 12-bolt. I want to put a lunch-box locker in it now (to get me through winter) and later I'll put something better in. Is it a standard 8.75 or an 8.5...? Please don't make me crawl on the cold ground to get the codes off it. Bummer....county clerk's office wasn't open today so I can't drive it until Monday. Been cleaning it, lubing hinges, replacing bulbs, and making a list of stuff I want and need. Needs a belt and tensioner. Ordering a weather-tech cargo liner. Looking at outside mirrors. Mine are unheated (pretty sure the wiring is there) and small. Looking at other factory offerings that will fit, are power adj, and have a bigger field of view. Tiny things they put on there (SMH). Driver's side door entry switch is a little broke so getting a pair of those. The spare appears to have never been moved since new. I plan to put a hitch on it. It came with the towing package - minus a hitch. I've checked all the RPO codes and it indeed has the tow pkg. It's like ALMOST the exact truck I would have ordered except just a few things. I might post pictures tomorrow. She isn't ugly.
  7. It would be nice if it worked properly but I’m using Apple carplay now.. which makes wireless charging kinda pointless I guess Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I drilled out a little hole to allow wires to go through on each mirror. The LED pods have the wires coming out in the center, ion the back and have all weather 3M double sided tape which holds very strong. The LEDs are meant for semi trucks.

  10. Also goes without saying... when we get an answer... pics would be very helpful. My need is to use my portable Onyx radio in my truck. Right now, I have it installed but with the magnetic antenna. Would really like to clean it up by using the shark fin.
  11. Literally had this happen to me once like a week ago. Remote wouldn't open the doors, so I got the spare fob, still no luck. At that point, guessed it was a discharged battery. Jumpstarted it in like five seconds with a battery I happened to have handy, and it started right up. I checked battery side cables, and all seemed tight. It hasn't happened again, but all clocks and such kept their time, so I dunno. 2015 Silverado, with the 4.3. Let me know if you find a solution.
  12. My 2015 Sierra has had transmission for shifting issues since i bought it from Bob Fish spring of 2016. It has not left me on the side of the road so I've just made a call to see if there was a recall, they said they had not seen this as a problem at their dealership. I just received a letter from a law firm asking about my Transmission, so I guess I'm not the only one. I made a appointment to get it in, I have put a little over 40,000 miles and I don't want this to become an issue when the warranty if gone. Any advise would be great.
  13. I’d appreciate any guidance. My truck has less than 3k miles and I really don’t want to pull too much apart. I am hoping for “easy” access, but I guess we’ll see!
  14. Maybe they moved it to behind the screen? I will try and see if I can dig something up for you.
  15. That looks sick!! How did you add the mirror clearance lights and do you have any close up pictures of them too? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Alright new battery is in and I'll test it when I have a chance to Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. First time here :) 2017 Silverado Z71 with Volkracing TE37 Wheels

    Looks awesome! Really like how well integrated those AMP powersteps are, is there much retrofitting required to make them operate properly? I like the design of those better then the factory power board that only slide in/out and dont really tuck out of the way at all.
  18. Here's mine, had installed mine about 2.5 years ago. Also added side mirror clearance/running leds.
  19. Looks like another gm "block" to owners, dealer can only read or we are not privileged to see the rpo codes anymore. Sucks there moving that way each year more and more, if not all manufactures going that route.
  20. Top Truck Colors - What's Your Guess?

    My Graphite metallic Silverado is sort of an off green/grey color so if you count that I'm in the 1% lol
  21. I appreciate your response. Yes, the "shark fin" is the XM antenna, but the end I am looking for is under the dash. In "older" Silverados, they have you pop out the glove box and there is the receiver... maybe 4"x6"x1" where the other end of the antenna wire plugs in. However, in my 2017 Silverado, behind the glovebox looks different and since I don't see anything familiar to the 4"x6"x1" box described above back there... that is my question. Did they move the XM receiver somewhere else under the dash?
  22. True, I'll get some battery's and test it out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. You're also assuming that both batteries are good. Try putting a new battery in a remote and see if the problem is gone.
  24. Lmao haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Havent personally ever had this issue with my 17' but perhaps you could try the old top gear method: 1) Stand just beyond whatever point the remote entry stops working 2) Hold the end of the remote tight against the temple of your head and press the lock or unlock button This will allow your body to become essentially a large radio antenna booster so If the remote entry then works its an easy way to know its a weak signal issue either from a low battery in the remote or an issue with the receiver within the truck.
