  2. Factory leds put out more light than the factory hids Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Conventional rainx is not recommended. Use the rainx specially formulated for plastic lenses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The truck will sense the E85 and adjust timing accordingly from the factory. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. One of those things that happens unfortunately. Along with 22” wheels packing with snow and throwing balance off temporarily. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Glad to hear. I’ll be changing the brakes myself soon for the first time on the truck and on any vehicle for that matter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I didn’t buy canbus bulbs and I didn’t have that problem. Could be some other interference. Maybe they were cheapo bulbs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Salesman handle sales. They don’t want to deal with you after the fact. Speak to a service manager about it. Better yet make a video of that happening and bring it in to the service department. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Guess it must depend on where we’re located. GM uses at&t, and that service gets really spotty in northern New England. I suppose if I lived in a metro area it could be better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. So my setup is a cerwin Vega flat 12 powered enclosure from amazon and a cheap 8 gauge wiring kit. The built in amp has both high and low level inputs. I utilized the factory bose amp on the back wall of the truck and spliced into the factory subwoofer signal using simple wire taps from radio shack. Blue wire with grey stripe is positive and gray with black stripe is negative. I combined left and right + and - together since it’s a single lead and not individual left and right door speakers. Ran my power wire around the drivers side and thru the top nipple on that big rubber cap on the firewall. Use a metal clothes hanger and tape a guide line to it to pull the power cord through. It will be frustrating and take a while to fish it through. Attached the power lead to the empty stud in the little box next to the battery. Had to buy a nut for it at Home Depot. Don’t remember the size. I also cut my underwear storage bin slightly to fit the sub and banished my jack and lug wrench kit to my toolbox. Install doesn’t require removal of carpet or rear seats if your somewhat flexible. Tuning is straight forward, turn the crossover all the way up, as the the bose amp only sends low signals to the factory sub so you don't have to worry about the mids interfering with base. Turn your bass down to what you want coming out of the front door speakers at the radio, turn the volume up to 3/4, subwoofer remote control (if you use it) to 100%, then slowly turn the gain on the sub until you start hearing distortion. Back off a little bit until it sounds good again and your good. I didn't use the Vega (bass) boost function at all. And I have my remote set at 2/3 most of the time. I laid out dynamat on my back wall and floor. It helped a little bit with sound deadening, but truthfully I expected more results. Got too lazy to do the front floor, doors, or ceiling. It mostly helps with my exhaust and tire drone at highway speeds. Our trucks have good factory insulation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Agreed. But those AWD systems just aren’t designed for what our system is. Theoretically, once there is slip in our trucks in 4auto, the system will fully engage and remain engaged until slip isn’t detected for a period of time (approx 5-10 seconds I believe). So if your just holding WOT you won’t have any increased wear other than the Initial engagement. But yeah I agree if I’m stuck badly im using 4hi or lo to get unstuck.

  14. Unless your really beating on it you won’t have overheating problems. The clutch is either 5% or 100% to the front. It doesn’t vary the torque level like some AWD systems do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. No difference unless your also adding a preload spacer that gets inserted into the coil over assembly itself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
