    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'm bias to only a few lift brands but I also hate lifted so maybe that has to do with a lot of it

    Don't let the size of your spare limit your choice of new rubber. The point of the spare is to let you limp home or to a shop in an emergency. If you have larger tires on your truck and you blow one, just put the spare on front so you aren't burning up the differential. FWD cars can run on a donut on the front for miles and I haven't seen one blow up on the highway yet. Even though they say somehting like 50 mph max, how many times you see people cruising at 65 with a tiny spare on? Anyway, the difference with a full size truck spare is it lets you operate the vehicle normally. I doubt anything you put on your truck would be as out of proportion as a donut on a car. So choose whatever tires you want and don't worry too much about matching the exact size of your spare.

    Had the same thing on mine they work there way out. Annoying also the glass shakes more then stock does but other then that I liked them I miss the big mirrors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No seat memory. Nothing electrical here, it is just the mirror 'rattles' out over time. This is the push-pull tow extension part of the mirror. Sounds like I am not the only one. If no one ends up posting a proven fix I will probably try an idea or two of my own. Don't think it would take much.

    Thanks again to Phil! I traded off my 1500 with tow mirrors Phil helped me with in on a 2500 and the new 2500 came with non-power folding mirrors. Phil worked with me to verify what was needed to upgrade to power-fold, with the 2500 with DPN mirrors it is a simple swap to DQS and a new power-fold switch, no harnesses needed. Phil is a great resource! Thanks again!

    Yeah if you are going down a road with bumps and holes and so on you are going to need a 6" lift for 35's or a 4" lift and trim a bunch of pieces. Anything less than 4" and you are going to have major rubbing issues on any slight incline. For a Denali I would highly recommend the BDS kits w/ fox coilers, if you can spring the additional cost. You are going to get a stiffer ride with a leveling kit and 2.5" is pushing the cv angles, 3" is too much and 2.5" is getting there. I don't recommend doing more than a 2" level.

    yes, well it's not quite as simple as just "unlocking the tire". This lock covers the hole in the bumper where you insert the crank to lower the spare tire.

    Yes, I would like to get a 4 - 4.5" lift. Nothing crazy just a bit taller stance. Thanks for your suggestions. I've just looked at all three brands and based on their company websites pricing Zone seems to be the best price at around $1200.

    Yes and no. Non-Flex Fuel truck, and all I've done is have a tune made for me by BBP to run a 50/50 mixture. I'm thinking of getting larger injectors, but not sure if I'll see an improvement that will justify the $$$ for larger injectors.

    Would be a good opportunity for new car replacement in your insurance policy if you had it! That really sucks, man! I'm not sure what might cause that, maybe the steering shaft got mangled or dislodged under there. I did have a co-worker get his car banged up pretty bad and it was just below the totaling cost, then after the repairs, he found a hole in his trunk which would have put it over the edge for a new car... so it is worth walking around underneath all around with the shop, even where you might not think, and make sure nothing else is damaged from the impact that isn't in the front portion. Also, check the electronics and make sure all the speakers and radio/CD player stuff works! One thing you should do is look up fair market for what you would get for an equivalent truck with the same features (including your brush guard and light bar). Having an idea (and a defense for a higher price because of mods, condition, etc.) would not be a bad idea to have locked and loaded if they come back with a low value price. I've never had it happen to me before, but I'm just thinking about what I would do.

    Thanks, Phil, once again for your help. The reality is that there's not much you can do to a white truck to make it more than it is - a truck - but the mirrors make it a bit safer for me and the fam while I'm towing. Appreciate what you do for the community.

    Just as an FYI, Apple announced today that third party navigation apps like Waze will be available on Apple CarPlay when iOS 12 is released.

    The V8 engines also suffer from horrible mpg when towing the max, so no difference. The difference is the GTDI 2.7 will get superior empty mpg. Thats what most light duty trucks do - drive around empty. 66% of all F150 sales are Ecoboosts - says a lot for their engine program. The GTDI engines are here to stsy. I wish GM all the best, hopefully they have an I-6 GTDI to go along side with the I-4 in the 1500.

    I do not understand the interest in this tiny motor. Wish they’d bring the good ole 350 back, make the 327 the base motor and ditch all these tiny motors. Full-size trucks just don’t make sense with out a V8. Strange times we live in these days. There ain’t no replacement for displacement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here’s the ZRoad bracket with their 6” Here’s the dual cube on their bracket Zero wind noise from either. Here’s there 50” curved with their bracket.. lots of noise but their diffusers will fix this - installing that soon and will report the difference. Here’s just a few of the leds I got from Zroads.. I also have two sets of their rock lights now as well. They produce amazingg products for decent price. Remember if you want instant 10% off your order with them, just use “oilfieldnow” as coupon code.

    Calm down, they didn't lie. First off both the GCWR and GVWR are easy to find, both are listed on the GMC site under capabilities. Second max towing for any of the manufacturers isn't listed with a fully loaded truck and trailer, it is a single person, no other payload or gear (150lb person is assumed from what I read). You start adding people, supplies, payload and trailer you take away from the max trailering capacity. So it can tow as they advertise 11,100 lbs, but that is just you in it depending on how much you weigh. Don't forget the trailer tongue weight is considered part of the GVWR/payload. You put the family and gear in and the towing capacity gets diminished. Might want to do some homework next time, they all advertise the same and that is the standard for calculation across the board. Tyler

    Swapped stock muffler with Magnaflow 12909 (Dan Fast Muffler is a great shop in Seattle area), deleted the flapper valve, added black tip; installed a Black Bear Performance ECM only tune. Sound is good. Could be a little louder at idle, but plenty sweet at WOT. Louder in cab for sure, but no longer notice the loud part, just the better sound part. Kept the AFM enabled for now, and don't notice it. Love the tune! Makes the truck respond so much cleaner and faster.

    The harness plug cover has a little plastic stud that holds to the frame (when it's not used) it just below where the sensor plugs into the frame. After you do the install plug the harness connector into the sensor which will tell the computer what the octane number is and make the adjustments.
