Hello all! Glad I found a place with some knowledgeable folks so I can ask my modification questions. As of a few days ago I am a proud owner of a 2018 Z71 All Star Edition Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. I absolutely love this truck but what truck would be complete without a couple of modifications!? I'm running into a situation that hopefully someone else has run into and solved. I want to add a storage unit under the rear seats; however, I also want to add the 10 inch kicker sub woofer that comes from Chevy to give my stereo a little fuller sound. The only place that 10 inch speaker seems to be able to go is under the passenger side rear seat. I have yet to see an under seat storage unit that is basically only half the size so the speaker can fit too, Has anyone done this and if so what storage unit did you get that allowed for both the speaker being mounted and storage bin placement? I do the apartment thing so I don't have the resources or space to fabricate my own as I have seen some on youtube do. Any guidance would be great! Thanks,

My Yukon has developed a temperature control problem with the heating and cooling settings. First issue is when A/C is not needed. Since it's winter, I can start my drive, typically it's 30 or 40 degrees outside, wait for the engine temp to start to rise and ask for 74 or 72 degrees from the previous days drive. As soon as you hit or turn on the FAN control knob, A/C selection comes on.....but I don't need it. It's 30 degrees outside! Took it to my GMC dealer, and he can't find any "error codes", nor can he duplicate. So I provide him with 3 or 4 videos from my iPhone. It clearly shows the engine temp starting to rise and able to give "warmer" air than the outside air, and outside temp on the touchscreen at say 34 degrees. A/C selector clearly comes on when pushing the fan ON and either vents or floor selected for my air. Been to him twice. Then, it has progressed to really HOT air coming from the vents or floor, when set to 72 degrees. I set a little temp gauge in the vent and when asking for 72, its pumping out over 100 degrees. Sent him a video of that. Drove down to the dealer on a half hour drive with it set this way, and showed him...."yah, that's sure hot" is his reply. Now, on longer trips of 3 hours last weekend, we are either too hot or too cold. One point we had 69 dialed in on both passengers, feet were cold at 69 but dash vents with my thermometer was near 120. Settings never seem to track. You can set it for any temp and it starts out comfortable, but slowly starts to get hot, then you crank it back lower and then we are cold. He has had it again for two days and can't duplicate on their test drives. Says he can't do any "warranty work" without error codes being generated. Oh, and the other really strange thing.....three months ago, my rear window completely blew out. Exploded like it had been shot out! And we were driving down a road at 15 mph. Course, it has a REAR DEFROST button on my dash, where all this problem is occurring NOW. Wonder how I can help my dealer find a solution? Yukon has only 18k miles and purchased new from this dealer.

FCA was ready to use multiple commercial spots during this year's Super Bowl to promote the heck out of the all new 2019 RAM. Instead, it has ignited a firestorm over the use of a speech by Martin Luther King, Jr as the background track in a commercial to sell trucks.
The NY Daily News says "Dodge’s Super Bowl ad distorts MLK’s message of service to sell trucks"
Business Insider's headline reads: People hate Dodge Ram's Super Bowl ad, which uses a Martin Luther King speech to sell trucks
The New York Times: Martin Luther King Jr. Commercial for Ram Trucks Is Swiftly Criticized
ABC News Just Put Up An Article From The Associated Press: Ram truck ad using MLK speech draws backlash
A topic discussing this ad on r/Politics on Reddit shows that some people are very outraged.
- I got excited to hear mlk. I was not thrilled it about the selling trucks thing. Terrible idea. - /u/Pm_me_hot_sauce_pics
- Tried sending Dodge an e-mail of my disgust but their server must have crashed. I sure hope thousands of others had the same intent. - /u/seness
- I wanted to ****ing spit at my TV over this shit. There is no American for whom it would be more offensive to use to sell a product with than Dr. King. - /u/RussianTrollHunter
- This just in: corporate America doesn't and never will give a shit about civil rights, truth, or justice. Unless of course that somehow involves you paying them on a generous bi-weekly basis 3/4 of your paycheck, then they'll totally pretend to give a shit about civil society. - /u/Adwokat_Diabla
Watch the ad and see the controversy for yourself. Than let us know what you think below.
Although this ad is getting all of the attention, it wasn't the only ad RAM showed during the Super Bowl. Here's two more that are not getting any flack.....yet.
And the most popular...
General Motors on the other hand, didn't run a Super Bowl ad this year for the 2019 Silverado.
So, what do you think? Did RAM step in it? Or is this all overblown?
I've seen several conflicting reports regarding the fluid capacities on both the front and rear differentials on my 07 Avalanche. The manual does a great job specifying the gear oil types but seems to be lacking the capacities part in the "fluids and capacities" section. Anyone have a good answer for me? I sure would appreciate it!
Ok I just bought an 02 Yukon 4x4. It has push button 4x4, 4 low, 4 high, 2 high and auto 4x4. I pressed the 4 hi to try the 4x4 and the light just flashed then went back to 2 hi. I hit 4 lo and heard it engage then the lights went out on the switch. Now the switch does nothing and the front diff is engaged. The transfercase is in high but I think 2 hi not 4 hi. I took out the 4wd fuse in the cab and also the atc fuse under the hood. Disconnected the battery for almost an hour today. Hooked it back up and the front is still engaged. My switches still do nothing.
