Topics I've Started

iBoard running board woes

14 March 2017 - 06:42 AM

They seem to be sturdy, I did paint the brackets before install.
Poor design on the hangers, the front right is a two piece because of the def tank, but my box clearly states 1500.
There is one bolt that holds the two pieces together, the bolt will act as a hinge, I complained and they sent an entire bag of 5 hangers and the hinge.
You could weld the two pieces together, but it's the principal. I'll post pics later.

Apple car play problems

08 March 2017 - 07:41 PM

I figured it wouldn't last long, the Apple car play worked great for about a month, still using the same cable. Radio doesn't recognize the phone, it does display the Bluetooth symbol, and calls work, but I really enjoyed the full projection options.
The other problem is the volume is always too low to hear, so I'm bumping the volume up at the first call each time I plug it in.
I'm sure GM blames Apple and Apple blames GM.

Tailgate lift assist

03 March 2017 - 05:34 AM

Does the factory offer a spring loaded tailgate?
I see people raving about the DeeZee lowering gas shock, but the torsion bar I saw installed on utube looked like some guaranteed rust holes in the near future.
What other options are there?

Does tow/haul button = max towing cap.

My truck has the tow haul button on the shifter, haven't checked the sticker on the door frame yet, and randomly wondered if that was a accurate giveaway.

2017 hood indents

12 February 2017 - 08:58 PM

It's a "custom" I assume the hood is the same on all 1500's. Two large indents, I'm wondering why the factory doesn't have black vinyl in there.
Thinking bout plastidip, but wanting more permanent solution.
