  1. "Whale Tail" Replacement options?

    Thanks for the responses, much appreciated.
  2. "Whale Tail" Replacement options?

    All these views and no posts? I'm just looking for other options, mainly ones that will cover the existing holes that will remain once I pull off the 'whale tail'. Wondering if this is long enough to do the job? http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/results.cfm?singlepart=1&AddPartNumber=12495717&partnumber=12495717
  3. I bought a used Century Cap to put on the back of my 2004 Silverado 1500. The cap fits great, but due to the "Whale Tail" style tailgate "cap", the door does not close. Has anyone found anything that is similar to this whale tail that bolts in its place? I like the ruggedness of this and really don't want to lose it if I don't have to. I've been told the only real replacements are the ones with the 3M tape that 'stick on'. If that is my only option, then I guess I will have to go with it. But I will take any suggestions. Stealer wants $138 for the GM one.
  4. Tailgate Handle Trim Broke

    I've had mine break twice now. Very frustrating. I know when I checked on the price last time, the dealer wanted like 40 bucks. Which I find ridiculous. So, I went the cheap route and bought one online. Well that one didn't last either. Anyone come up with something else to keep this trim in place? (I also had the little lever tabs break, so I replaced them both. I think those were like 7 or 8 bucks a piece too. Damn plastic crap.
  5. seatbelt problem

    I have a 2004 and I have the opposite problem more so with the front passenger seat. It looks while just sitting there, if you go to learn forward...it's kind of 'stuck'. Not trying to hijack your thread.....I've heard a few people complain about the seat belt mechanisms. Maybe check for a recall? Though I'd assume the dealer already looked it up when you took it in.
  6. I've heard stories from people in California about the cops. But as others have stated...you should check into the laws when you move to another state. Front plates are required in most states now I believe. Sure it sucks for sports cars and if you want a 'clean look'. But laws are laws. As for the tinted tail light covers....it should be common sense here. That is one of the stupidest things ever invented. A stop light is there to be seen. Covering it with cheap black plastic serves no purpose and makes it harder to see. I would consider the ticket/warning a favor to yourself before you got in an accident because the person behind you 'didnt see your lights due to the black covers'. Not sure what to tell ya on the speeding. I'd request info on the last time their radar equipment was calibrated. Like anything else that measures something, occasionally it needs to be calibrated. I've heard of people having their cases dropped when they request that info.
  7. So when your broke down on the side of the road with her, or you've got a spare tire and she isnt cooperating, do you sing "Help Me Rhonda"? My dads old 86 Chevy 1 ton 454 dually wrecker we called Red Death..and then when it got a new paint job...Orange Death. Haven't really named my truck. Black Thunder maybe. Guess I should go come up with something cool. Thought my to-do list was long enough this weekend thanks a lot
  8. Dare I ask, but Wisconsin members?

    Another Wisconsin Guy....just west of Milwaukee. Guess I missed the road trip to Appleton in 2003?!? Lol.
  9. Im still confused about some stuff, but I will continue to re-read posts till I get it. I do have a question though. About this "Slave" thing. I assume it works something like IDE channels on PC's, only there is only 1 in our vehicles. If I wanted mp3 compatibility, and found a changer that handled mp3s, could I hook this up in place of the regular 6disc changer? Im sorry if this seems like a dumb question. I know I need to get rid of this "Dumb" Bose crap amp before I go nuts. I hauled an Escalade today, along with a Honda Odyssey. Man, GM really pisses me off after I saw the electronics in this Odyssey. It was touch screen navigation, and when you put the vehicle in reverse, the screen switches over to a live camera view of the rear. How cool is that? I mean yea, it may not be a big deal to most people. It just pisses me off how advanced these foreign cars are becoming, while we still end up paying all this money for the "LT" package, only to get a hunk of metal for an AMP. Hehe. I love your setup, I just want to be able to pop in cds full of MP3's. Thanks. -Brian
  10. Here is a REAL good source of all this info compressed down to just data: (Note: part numbers are listed here to) TNR INSTALL INFO Yes, the nav dvd needs to be in to be navigating. If you want to play cds at same time, you need add a cd changer. dave <{POST_SNAPBACK}> How do I know if mine is the lux on none lux model <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Look in the glove box, if you find a code that says Y91 or Y92, you have the LUX package. If you see U6C (I think) you have the non-LUX package. If I were to bet, you don't have the LUX package. It's only seen on the Escalades and Denalis. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Its UC6. Pisses me off. I have the LT package and they skimp out on the AMP.
  11. the one more modification that linda and i had to do was to cut/grind a little plastic piece behind the bezel (you'll see when you take the bezel off) area inorder to get the cd changer to slide in all the way. this is the only cutting you'll probably have to do. we talked about this on one of the earlier posts. with this little piece out of the way, the cd changer slides in perfectly and just use two tapping screw to hold it in place. for me grinding away the plastic piece provided me with an opening to run the cable through from the head unit to the cd changer. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I think this is the piece you are talking about cutting to allow more room for the changer. Hope this picture helps. Picture
  12. Anyone feel like doing a step-by-step, detailed with pictures install guide for those of us who are too dumb to know what half the stuff you are talking about is? Id really like to change my stock system as it really doesn't sound that great. I just don't know which way to go. This mod looks really cool. I just have to find me a Installing a NAV unit and nice sound system for Dummies book
  13. Reduced Engine Power Message

    Thanks for all the info. I've had strobes for years. I know they are grounded through the powerpack and whatnot. Just seemed kind of weird. Guess I'll see if it happens again. I do appreciate all the insight though, as always
  14. Reduced Engine Power Message

    Even if its not even tied into anything else? And also...why just now? The strobes have been in there for over 6 months?
  15. Reduced Engine Power Message

    Any ideas what would cause this?
