ChristopherDB replied to geswek's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsIs there any possible way to have the mirror auto fold every time the truck is locked? I can seem to get into the habit of holding down the lock button.
ChristopherDB replied to THEREED's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsOld thread but I wanted to bring this up. I purchased that box new on eBay and it doesn't really fit well. Holes don't lign up so you have to drill new holes in the box. There is also a mounting tab on the back I had to cut off to get it to fit and unfortunately there is not a 2x2 inch hole in the bottom corner where that portion was cut off. If I didn't cut off that tab then the box would be too far to the passenger side because the tab would be hitting the driver side fender and the washer fluid reservoir would be blocking it. There is also a gap between the battery tray and the box which I did not fill with washers so when I torqed down the screws, it cracked the box. Thankfully I paid with AMEX so I'll file a purchase protection claim for accidental damage.
ChristopherDB replied to duquephart's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsJust an update after returning the Huskey storage. I purchased the OEM one from GM and couldn't be happier. Definitely worth the extra $. Much more sturdy, fits perfectly with the OEM floor liners, and bolts very secure to the rear seat post. Only downside is that is is not simple to remove if you have a spill that needs to be cleaned up.

I ripped apart my door panel today to install the side mirror cameras and those Bose speakers looked pretty cheap.
Added the side mirror cameras today. GM part #19355213. Took me 3.5 hours. Didn't do the wireless trailer camera because I'll be adding the cargo camera and front camera. Dont like seeing my baby ripped apart but I didn't want to leave it in the dealer's hands. The cameras are excessively big. Not what I expected.

Can't believe they supply them with such ugle lights. Bought these on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B073ZGNDTC?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_yo_pop_mb_pd_t2 They were the only LED strips I could find with the 3M VHB adhesive tape. I like how they were enclosed inside a black rubber strip, so you can't see the LEDs unless you bend down and look under. They are extremely bright; brighter than what I wanted. Before: After:
Added Weather Tech mud flaps and a bump step.
ChristopherDB replied to tobinstetson's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Is this the same tick that everybody else is experiencing? I have a 6.2L Dealer said is it fuel injectors but the tick gets faster at higher RPMs and when I let off the gas at a high RPM the tick remains fast and doesn't slow down so I don't think it is noisy injectors because the tick would have slowed when I let off the throttle.
Here's what I did today... Scratched the crap out of my driver side window as I was cleaning up bird crap with a terry towel. Bird must have shit out a diamond.
ChristopherDB replied to ChristopherDB's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsEnded up getting the Intellihaul side mirror cameras with the gift card and then bought the weather tech mud flaps on Amazon. I like the idea of the bed carpet. Does it fit well with a spray in liner?
I purchased those same lights at the recommendation of a few other posters because they were cheap and I thought why not. I received and installed them today and will be ripping them off tomorrow. Unfortunately they were just way too cheap. The adhesive wasn't the black 3m automation tape, it was just the basic white tape which won't last long. One of the lights was 5000k and the other was over 6000k so they didn't match, and the black aluminum frame was separating from the LED strip. The wires were also thinner than my thinning hair. In the picture you can see the left is more yellow than the right. Still looking at other options if anyone had recommendations. Oh by the way, thank you for letting me know about the adjustment. I checked and the boards were hitting on the LED that came with the boards so once I removed those LEDs it was fine.
ChristopherDB replied to ChristopherDB's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsThank you. I emailed echomaster and they promptly replied back with answers. I'd prefer MVI but I have a credit good for only GM accessories.
ChristopherDB replied to ChristopherDB's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsI don't like the look of mudflaps but I already have two chips in the paint from rocks flying up so I pulled the trigger on the weathertech ones. I didn't want to drill any holes. Now I just need to find something else that GM sells so I can burn this gift certificate which is only valid for 90 days and in a single transaction.
ChristopherDB posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI have a certificate that I need to spend at the dealer for any GM accessories and I want to get a front camera that goes in the front grill. I also want to make sure I have the capability of upgrading the system to add more cameras in the future, such as the side mirror cameras without having to start over. If I purchase the single front camera system for $399, Part #19366657 https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2018-silverado-1500-single-front-camera-system/19366657-p-92297317.html can I add the rear cargo camera later? If so, do I need to purchase the center brake light camera that is $399, Part # 19355216 https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2018-silverado-1500-center-brake-light-camera/19355216-p-92296686.html Or can I purchase the cheaper one for $159, Part #19355304 https://www.shopchevyparts.com/electronics/2018-silverado-1500-optional-3rd-brake-lightchmsl-camera-system/19355304-p-92296689.html Later on can I add the mirror cameras or does that require a completely different setup? Thanks, Christopher
