  1. Waiting for the right deal to come along to do this. After ripping into my dash here and there it seems very easy. As you take off plastics, you see lots of bolts holding it down to the dash frame support frame. Give yourself a day and explore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. The studs highlighted in red in your photo, are they the ones required for the overlay? Or are they the ones that were on your truck prior? I currently have these studs already on my engine. Just looking to figure out if I’ll need to order the studs are or not. Thanks buddy. Cleans the engine bay up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. That makes sense, I kinda thought that could be the problem. Cluster is my next mod now. Thanks for the heads up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  5. So I’m just about at the 120,000km mark on my 2014 Silverado 2WT. I’ve been running premium oil and 91 fuel since I got it, was tuned to run 8 cylinder since about 15,000km. I chanced out all fluids on the truck at 65,000km and now as I approach the 120,000km mark here’s what I have planned for what’s next. I have never done any kind of valve cleaning before but I’m sure I can handle this. I would like your guys feed back of my plans and anything else I should add in while I’m at it. I do regret never adding a catch can but I figured since I’m doing this list I mise well add one in as I plan to keep this truck for well over 200,000.. any advice will be appreciated. ——————— 1.

  6. Just passenger side glove box. Yellow plug was taped right behind p/fuse block. The white plug was taped up behind the dash bar support(metal tube in dash) in same place, d/s glove box area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. How long did it take to swap it out? Heard it’s a nightmare to get these battery’s out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. They are interchangeable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Someone with a higher model wanna open up the dash?! Lolll Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Not heated switch. I was praying it was when I found it as I have the buttons and want to do that mod lolll Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. That’s what I thought, but why would it be taped to the harness? I thought all these trucks have same airbag set ups. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Ok so I found these inside my dash while adding in nav/ car play.. Can someone explain what there for? They were taped away up in dash. Yellow connector was inside dash next to passenger side fuse panel. White plug was behind glove box, behind dash tubular bar support. This is a 2014 Silverado 1500 2WT - I love modding the hell out of it so I’d love to know what these are for lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I was going to do this two times in the past but failed upon going this route. I’m in the process of changing the cloth on my seats from factory grey to factory black. Not a cheap mod to say the least lol I have back done and all head rests, just trying to figure out if I’m going to do heated in the front before swapping the fabric. Congrats on getting the swap to function properly thus far, hoping the heat will function correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Ahhhh this is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time.. still awaiting to see if I can be done factory. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I’m at 109,000 on my 14 and I’ve left light bars on enough where I drained the batter roughly 10-15 times over they life time and still haven’t killed my battery. I’m in Alberta, Canada. This truck spent a lot of time in Fort McMurray in extreme cold(even killed the battery there a lot). In my opinion, fantastic battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
