So I have a 2014 Silverado LT1, without the Bose system. It has the 4" non touch screen radio, and 6 non Bose speakers. I want to upgrade to the loudest, clearest sounding speakers possible. My local sound store told me Arc Audio was the way to go, and I was hoping some others may have installed some before I do. Looking for feedback and opinions, don't worry about price, I'm just looking for the loudest clearest sound I can get.
Hey guys. I have been driving a used 2007 Silverado Classic for about a year now. The truck has a regular cab, regular bed, 4.3L V6, and did not come with a tow package from the factory. After I started to realize I would need it for towing some smaller to medium trailers, I got the basic 4 way package and hitch installed at U Haul this past December, and also installed a Hopkins 7-blade/4-pin piece to the wiring cable just above the spare tire. However, I also would prefer to hook in a trailer brake system to save on wear and tear on my brake pads when moving larger trailers that I might occasionally haul. While the standard 2007 Silverado Classic (it's really just a 2006 Silverado) that comes with a tow package comes with the wiring, the wiring to the STUD #1 fuse in my engine bay fuse box, which normally has the power to a trailer brake controller, is absent from anywhere I can see around the box on mine. I also notice that the wiring to the trailer brake output in my truck is not connected to anything, and is just an empty wire running back to the end of the truck. STUD #2 is already connected under the box, which does not show the usual "install all the wires yourself" advice on most trailer brake controller videos from etrailer.com
I am wondering if the red/power and blue/trailer brake wiring is hiding anywhere within any bundles and just needs to be connected together into the fuse box and to a trailer controller, or if I have to tap into my firewall and wire up everything myself.
Here is a representation of the truck I have below:
Here is the fuse box. Stud #1 seems to be used by the trailer brake controller's power wire, as most etrailer.com videos show these are already wired on towing equipped vehicles.
I just bought my first newish truck, being the 2014 Silverado 2wd z71 lt. It’s got the crew cab with 5.3l under the hood. I’m currently stationed at ft Stewart ga.
Im just looking for some help or some advice on some upgrades I’d like to do to this truck and which products might be the best.
- I’d like to change the headlights and fog lights from stock.
- Put a leveling kit and some new (bigger) a/t tires on it and not sure what size being
- Change to an aftermarket air intake.
- Do something about the shitty stock speakers (without Bose). Wether it be new door speakers and sub(s). Or be just subs and have a separate amp just for door speakers. Do I need a processor to hook up to stock 8” head unit.
- How do I add any app or navigation to this stock 8” head unit
- How to get more performance from the truck.
Anything would help,

I have come across a 1993 chevy silverado 3500 with a swapped engine (502) I have little to no experience with cars. I've been looking at it with a mechanic who is considerably more experienced having worked on Cummins Diesels for a transport company. He's working on a truck of his own. I was trying to help him out by figuring out the firing order we've tried various ones, It doesn't appear to be misfiring but I have little experience with v8's so i'm not sure what a 502 or a 454 should sound like firing order-wise. I'd happily post a recording. Truck also has injection issues which means it needs a bit of help every time to start. It's also currently stuck in limp-mode as it will not exceed 1800rpm's. The computer has been 'tampered' with, presumably when the block was changed. It's currently with another mechanic who has a diagnostic system.
Basically, I was hoping someone could post the firing order of a 502 and I could check when I get her back from the mechanic.
Thank you all in advance
