    If you haven’t been following the WWDC from Apple, you might have missed some pretty great news today. All of us with CarPlay are getting a pretty big upgrade this fall. They’re letting third party maps programs onto CarPlay! Google maps, waze, etc. sounds like cool stuff is incoming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If this impresses you, you should read your manual. There are all sorts of neat features on these trucks that aren't obvious. There are also a couple of threads on this forum dedicated to tips and tricks with these trucks.

    While your at it what I do once a year is drop the spare, wash/clean everything up (including the undercarriage spot) lube the lock, cable, and assembly. Because nothing pisses off the on call in the middle of the night tow truck driver more than a seized up spare that won’t come down or when they get it down it’s flat anyway... I say tow truck driver because that’s who you’ll end up calling after f’n around for an hour on the side of the interstate in the dark without a light in the rain trying to figure out how to do it yourself...

    I can't remember the brand but I bought them at AutoZone for like $25. They're meant for the truck bed but I already had some in there and figured these would work great, and they did. I wired them in with the courtesy lights so they come on with unlock or opening a door.

    Dang.. all that dirt can't be good for that mechanical linkage. Last thing you need when you need that spare is a gunked up lock. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Auto-Stop or whatever has no business being on a truck. Let the do-gooders have it on their Smart Cars and Festivas and Yugos, leave the rest of us alone.

    I am kicking my self for not starting a build thread sooner on my truck so let me summarize the last couple of years... Sold my 2010 F150 FX4 and bought my 2014 Sierra SLE in Feb of 2016. We had our second son on the way and my super cab F150 wasn't going to cut it with two car seats. With a pending basement project and hunting I needed a truck so naturally, crew cab was the way to go. Here's my F150 before I sold it and my Sierra on day 1. I had no complaints about my F150 other than the backseat being a smidge too small for rear facing Recaro car seats. It stayed stock for a few days then the modification bug bit right away, started with an TRS HID kit and shortly after a Stainless works catback exhaust system followed up by a TruXp air intake. A year later I started to jump into the stereo and added a 5 channel Alpine amp fed by an Audio control processor. Installed Infinity Kappa components up front and Infinity references int he rear of the truck. The 5th channel of the amp fed a low profile 10" pioneer sub-woofer I had from my F150 in a custom sealed box I built and rhinolined. After the stereo project I finally caved and started my YouTube channel. I did this for a few reasons; first, I rely on youtube reviews when I buy parts so figured I can give back to the truck enthusiast community and secondly, installing the parts on my truck is part of the fun, filming videos while installing the parts prolongs the FUN! My first videos were with a couple of Deezee products I picked up; the bumper guard and the rack. After I dipped my toes into making videos, I couldn't keep my credit card at bay. I love upgrading my truck and filming the installs. The reviews, the comments from viewers, its so much fun! Nothing is more exciting than watching your subscriber number slowly climb up. Anyways, in this thread Ill be posting my videos. Lately, just running the YouTube channel was not enough and I wanted to try my hand at setting up group buys. The first was for Ecoological on this forum and the second kicks off in June for ZROADZ. The Ecoological buy was awesome and I hope the ZROADZ GB does well too! Anyways links to my videos below and here is a current photo as the truck sits today. Lots of plans for the GMC this summer! Be sure to subscribe to my channel, it helps me keep the videos coming!

    I experience the same issue with the driver side mirror creeping out. Every few days, I push it back in place. Just a minor annoyance because I like the mirrors a lot, but if you come up with a solution please share! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    https://my.gmc.com/.../gmownercenter/.../manuals/2016/GMC/Sierra/2k16sierra2ndPri.. You can download the manual here and read it on your computer or phone at your leisure. PDF file. Beats rummaging through the glove compartment if you store a lot of crap in there.

    A lot depends on whether you have a functioning key. Otherwise you'll probably have to get towed to a dealer. A second key can be learned from a working key. Fob has to be programmed via SPS at a dealer.

    Kids still like cars the media really up plays this Scored one of these. Guy at work went to the 500 and picked one up for me (passing out if you bought a program) Goes nicely with the one Chris got me at SEMA Ryan B.

    I have the manual A1 tow mirrors on my 01 2500HD they’ve been on the truck for 8 years I don’t drive it much but the drivers side does work it’s way out slowly and has for years. I’ve tried to think of a solution but everything I’ve thought of minus modding the mirror so it can be wedged when in the in position seams to be a temporary solution? I’ll take it your out of your warranty period on them already?

    This one is a gem!. I was thinking I was going to have to do an HMI upgrade to a 2016+ to get this feature but tried it in my 15 2500 and it worked! You just saved me a lot of money. Also works with Android by the way.

    You're in for a harsh ride if you inflate them to 60 PSI. I generally run mine between 40-45 depending on the load. They seem to ride the best with no load between 40-42 PSI. I'm running LT285/60R20 Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires. My next set of tires won't be LT tires. The extra weight of the tires does affect gas mileage. When these wear out I plan to go with Nitto Grappler 305/55R20 Extra Load that is lighter than a LT tire by a few pounds.

    You're right. Clean it out and spray it with a little WD-40 or something similar. Seen them rust up solid and have to be punched out.

    I’m thinking of pulling the trigger in these ones they are back in stock. I’ve used Opt7 stuff before and I am a huge fan http://www.opt-7.com/sidekick-sequential-running-board-switchback-led-strip-kit/

    I’ve done this already, there’s a rubber grommet right under the driver side door, so put the led strips under your doors then run the wires though there inside of your cab, then just splice into your dome light circuit; beyond easy mod that looks amazing. I also did the footwell lighting when I did this one.

    Unless there’s been a change. The only difference between a flex-non flex fuel truck is the sensor, a hundred dollar option. Also unless there’s been a change, with the sensor you truck would tune up the truck by 25 HP. I think I would have went with the sensor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If your vehicle currently supports CarPlay then you can run the new apps when ios 12 is released.

    Ya you can still use this spade terminal. Fuse ratings are a capacity and the actual current going through the circuit is based on the loads that are connected to it. So in theory since this device charges at 9A you could safely run 5 of these at once off that single point(which you wouldn't) Yes, you absolutely should should go from that spade terminal to a Inline fuse. I would also recommend trying to stick with the same kind of fuses the truck already uses(micro 2) so you can use the spares chevy conveniently provides in the case you end up blowing one. Ideally fuses are chosen to protect a given wire size and the wire size is chosen based on the current the load is going to pull. Usually for 20A you would want 12G or 14G wire.

    You're going to have problems I think. I think the only reason your truck is running is because you're running some gas. You need the sensor

    Hello all, I just got an ‘18 2500 Duramax for a work truck. It has the small power and heated mirrors. I would like to upgrade to some towing mirrors. Since work provides it, and I’ll probably get a new one is less than a year, what options do I have for tow mirrors that don’t require a ton of modification or money? Thanks

    Hmm...I'm already pretty limited being 6" lower than normal. Maybe I'll think on that a bit. Thanks Phil.

    Coming up quickly on one year since i purchased my 2017 Silverado. Quick update. No issues so far at all. Just turned over 15,000 miles in a little over 11 months of ownership. Two oil changes in that time. Did a hand wash and wax over the weekend. Still love the red and black.

    Fuelly isn't very smart in its calculations. First, it does not give the option of calculating for actual fuel used, it assumes what you pumped is what you used. Second, it calculates the stats based on the last tank with the prices just paid for the new tank. In the grand scheme of things it's only a few cents a mile off but such adds up over time. I like it, just needs improvement.

    I'm going to bet the gas motor will be plenty durable. This isn't a motor that was converted from a lower service but a clean sheet design with this kind of cylinder pressure in mind from the get go. Anyone remember the Olds diesel? Dedicated blocks made killer gas blower motors. Just saying, it has all the right bits and pieces to succeed.

    I would completely advise against running e85 in your truck until you get the ECU tuned.
