    Been a while since posting here since I barely get any time to myself these days - Picked up an embossed grille and stole the upper trim off of it. Retrofitted it into my grille. - Got my headlights back on. Got the corners cleared with Klearz (courtesy of Crisp GM Customs). - Testing out these aftermarket DL3 Mirrors. They support power fold and memory (just like the factory DL3s) - Handles are now switchbacks (courtesy of Crisp GM Customs) - Truck got a bath (LOL) - so neglected. UPR Catch Can, Borla Catback Exhaust, and new NavTV - GM650, and Redline Emblems are next on the list to be installed - IF I can get a free day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Having just passed 10k miles this week, I thought I would offer my opinion on how I feel about the truck so far. Background: I special ordered my LT Trail Boss back in May 2018 and picked it up in September 2018. I have almost every option that you can order on it except the sunroof (would have delayed my production at the time). My truck was built the very first week of production (7/09/2018) and is one of only a small handful of Red Silverados, if not the only one, to receive the Gideon/Dark Atmosphere leather interior as that color was changed to not an option for Red Silverados on the second week of production. Within the first week or two of receiving it, I installed a custom Electronic Cutout System for my exhaust, Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33.5x12.5R20 mud tires, an Undercover Ultra Flex tonneau cover, and vinyl wrapped the scoop portion of my hood. Review: Honestly, I can't believe its been 10k miles already and those miles have flown by without any major issues. I will start with the few issues I have experienced. For the first two months, I had Bluetooth connectivity issues where my phone would randomly disconnect and reconnect multiple times a day. This was fixed in November by software update V507 and has not reoccurred, knock on wood. I also have had Service ESC and Service Parking Brake lights (not at the same time) come up randomly a couple of times but they went away on their own the next time I started the car. Other than these two issues, the truck has been great. It has 110% met and exceeded my expectations. It drives great, its quiet (when the exhaust cutout is closed), its smoother than my K2 was, and it turns a lot of heads. The interior is beautiful and well laid-out, with tons of room in the back seat (Crew Cab) and very comfortable seats for long trips. The Bose surround sound with subwoofer kicks butt and delivers crystal clear, crisp sound. The Blind Spot monitors and Rear Traffic Alert (Safety Package I) work great and have saved my butt many times already. The 5.3 is much quicker and more agile than my K2 was and the 8 speed is a definite improvement. The new Dynamic Fuel Management is seamless and unnoticeable. I am averaging 14-16 mpg city and 16-18 mpg highway, with an all-time high of 21 mpg on a specific highway trip I took and that's pretty good in my book for a lifted brick with mud tires. This past weekend I went on a ski trip in Up North Michigan (Harbor Spring, MI) and we received 10-12 inches of snow in the 3 days I was there on top of the 2 ft that was already there. The Trail Boss handled it with no issue and made it up the steep, winding, snow-covered road to our hill-side cabin like it was driving on straight, dry pavement. I have yet to do any major offroading but during the light offroading that I have done here and there, it performed excellently. I did punch the gas on one little hill and got some air (about 1-2 ft off the ground) and the suspension absorbed the landing nicely. I look forward to testing its capabilities more this summer. The short bed is much bigger in this generation and I honestly haven't noticed any reduced space issues when loading my truck (my K2 had the standard 6.4 ft bed). Also, the oil is much easier to change since they freed up the space around the filter and plug, making oil changes a breeze. Overall, I am very blessed to have this great truck and couldn't be happier. No one pressured me to write this review, nor did GM have any contact with me about it. This is my honest opinion on how I feel about the truck and I hope this review helps anyone thinking about buying one to make the right decision for them. If anyone has any specific questions at all, please feel free to ask.

    so i had an idea a while ago... i have been using a 2x8 in the back of my truck as a 'divider' (just sliding it into the little groves on each side of the box). it worked great but i wanted to do something a little 'more'. i came up with 2 layouts that i liked - i ended up going with the bottom one: one of the pieces of equipment i have with my business is a laser cutter, so using taped together file folders i created the template.... put the template on the 2x8.... and transferred all the 'cut outs' i wanted to use a router, but to make life a little easier, i drilled out as much as i could first.... once the drilling was done i screwed plastic jigs to the 2x8 (i made the jigs with the laser cutter, just 1/8" plastic. my thinking was that the little wheel on the top of the router bit would just follow the cut out in the plastic.) it worked great! then use wood filler on all the screw holes... then sand it and get ready to paint.... and here it is... overall i'm really happy with it. the only thing i need to do is go get another can of flat black. i grabbed a can of what i thought was flat but ended up being semi gloss! ha! oh well, will add the final flat coat in the next couple days after i can get to a hardware store if anyone else wants to try the same thing i'll see if i can attach the file i used with my laser cutter... silverado box divider.ai ^^maybe it worked?? it's just an ai file - nothing special. if the above file didn't upload properly and you'd like to try this just fire me a private message with your email address and i'll send the file. the one thing i'd still like to add is a piece of stainless steel to the back side, but just behind the chevy logo - i think that would look sweet. i just need to get to a local metal shop

    Me personally, I would scratch buying a house for a few years while you rebuild your credit. I would pay your truck payments on time, plus a few extra dollars every month. A high interest rate on a auto loan, might raise your payments about $100/ month. A high interest rate on your mortgage can raise your payment $700/ month. That's an extra $8400/ year for nothing, that you throw away. Do that for 3 or 4 years, you would be throwing away $25-30k. If you buy a house at a high interest rate, and can't afford the payments anymore, then you foreclose on your house and your credit takes a hit again. Then you are in the same position again. If money isn't important to you, sell your truck and buy a house. But the smarter move would be keep your truck, rebuild your credit, then buy a house at a better rate. This is just my suggestion.

    Seat Memory Retrofit (RPO - A45) by pgamboa So I gave everyone a sneak peak of my radio that showed the “Comfort and Convenience” options. This option is an option when you have the A45 - Seat Memory Package, typically found on LTZ, High County, SLT, and Denali Trims. Since owning my truck (2016 Silverado LT, 1500 CCSB), I started down the path of adding Seat Memory because I thought this was upgrade path in order to add DL3 Mirrors (power fold, turn signal, puddle light, etc.) I originally only wanted DL3 Mirrors but it seemed (at the time) that I could or would need to add Seat Memory since all the circuits for DL3 Mirrors and their harnesses were built for Seat Memory. When I realized that adding Seat Memory was never going to happen and couldn’t be done, I always wanted to know why. The MAIN reason why it has been said it couldn’t be done, wasn’t because that it couldn’t, but because of all the hardware, wiring, and programming requirements needed in order to achieve it. There is a HUGE parts list, a TON of wiring, then the programming. I’m here to share my retrofit details with all of you! Let’s start with my truck first. 2016 Silverado 1500 LT, CCSB, Gas, 5.3L, 2WD. Came with Factory Heated Leather Seats, Power Adjust Driver Seat, Power Adjust Pedals, Rear Park Assist Sensors, Rear Sliding Window, DL8 Mirrors. I came across an opportunity to buy a complete interior that came from a higher trim truck (mainly for the heated/cooled seats is what I wanted) and took this opportunity to give this another shot, considering that I would have a majority of the hardware. Retrofit Requirements: First and foremost - Programming. There is a K40 - Seat Memory Module that lives under the Driver’s Seat. This needs to be programmed to your truck. Programming done by WAMS - www.whiteautoandmedia.com. @GTPprix Thanks for this! The K40 Seat Memory Module was sent off to get programmed to work with my truck/my VIN. Hardware - DL3 Mirrors, DL3 Door Harnesses, DL3 Door Panel Harnesses, DL3 Power Fold Switch (different than the non-Seat Memory Power Fold Switch), DL3 Passenger Window Switch (DL3 Passenger Window Switch has two inputs as opposed to one), Heated/Cooled Seats, K40 Seat Memory Module, Pedal Adjust Memory Motor (still need to source one). Wiring - There is a TON of wiring needed. There are about 10-12 circuits that need to be added to the driver side seat connector X310 (cabin side). These circuits go forward and land in various places (X51L Fuse Panel, X61A Junction Box, Pedal Adjust Motor, Passenger Seat, both Door Jambs (cabin side), Passenger Side Kick Panel). You will also need to access both door jamb (cabin side connectors) to remove circuits that will no longer be used in favor of new seat memory circuits. So, as you can see, you will have to have the ability to overcome this as it can be a bit overwhelming. You will also need to ability to comprehend the schematics differences between Seat Memory versus non Seat Memory. There are several circuit redirects and circuits that get abandoned in favor of new circuits to live in those slots, etc. So…as you can see, this is why it always been understood as “it can’t be done”. I have everything working EXCEPT for the pedal adjust - memory recall. I can manually adjust the pedals using the adjust button on the I/P. The pedal motor is different in Seat Memory versus Non Seat Memory, so I will be exploring that soon. It seems that I am missing a pedal position sensor. This is fully functional now Here is a list of what I gained and what is working: Key Fob Mirror Fold In/Out Reverse Mirror Tilt Mirror Memory Pedal Memory Seat Memory Set Switch 1 & 2, Easy Exit Heated/Cooled Seats on both seats Power Adjust Passenger Seat Power Adjust Driver Seat Driver Seat - Haptic Feedback (when in Reverse) What doesn’t work Pedal Adjust Memory Recall - This is the last piece of this upgrade and is a work in progress. I am exploring the requirements for this. Pedal Adjust Memory Recall works now after installing the Pedal Adjust Position Sensor. $15 on eBay for that. I couldn’t drive my truck for 3 days since the driver seat was moved ALL the way forward when it was removed from the donor truck. This was done to gain access to the rear bolts needed to remove the seat. I was NOT able to get the power adjust on the driver seat to work until day 3 of this project, therefore, making the truck not driveable. I inadvertently had to make a “Seat Memory Bypass, Power Adjust Harness” to be able to move my seats in the meantime. This custom harness bypasses the Seat Memory Module and provides power to the adjust controls. Depending on the need for this, I may make/sell this harness for those without seat memory that want to install these heated/cooled seats, and be able to adjust the driver side. The Driver Seat adjust controls go THROUGH the Seat Memory Module. So until you can get entire system to work, you won’t be able to adjust the driver seat. If you currently have Factory Heated Seats, adding cooled seats is rather simple and is plug and play (no programming required). If you DO NOT have Factory Heat, I don’t know how much more work is needed to gain that. Most likely, you’ll need programming for the K29 Seat Heating Control Module and/or BCM. Since I have Factory Heat, the K29 Seat Heater Module was already present under my factory seat, so to gain cooling for the Driver Side, I only had to land one wire for the Vent Motor from the passenger side over to the driver side. For the most part, the passenger seat was Plug and Play. I was able to quickly gain power adjust on that side since its controls do not interface with the MSM Memory Seat Module). However, you WILL get an airbag warning error because the seat position sensors are all handled by the MSM. Without a fully functional MSM, you’ll have to add the physical Seat Position Sensor to get this error to go away. There is really NO easy way to integrate this. No Plug and Play harnesses that will make this all work. So please don’t ask me about one - LOL. You really need to have an understanding of how to add missing circuits and circuit redirects. I had to redirect circuits in 4 places. I did make 2-3 mistakes in this project. I forgot to land missing circuits (totally missing them) and I landed circuits incorrectly - blowing the pedal adjust fuse. So…you have to be fully prepared if you decide to tackle this project. Here are some photos to share. I also took some video clips of the entire process and will try to put a video together. Enjoy! Dash Swap was done only because I had the seats already out, so might as well swap out my vinyl dash for the leather that came with the interior I bought. Since I had to remove seats and carpet to gain access to the cab side seat connectors, might as well Sound Deaden. Lol. New Comfort and Convenience options! Cab Side - Passenger Seat Connector (X320) Cab Side - Driver Seat Connector (X310) - With my harness loom of new circuits added. The dreaded X61A- Junction Box An impromptu harness I had to make to adjust my driver seat without the MSM working. The impromptu bypass harness. Can’t drive like this. Seat now adjusted to optimal driving position! LOl

    Decided to give my exhaust tip a makeover. I bought an MBRP Installer series exhaust for my 17 Silverado about a month ago. After a month of use and a weekend driving on the beach in salty water, the tip started rusting and looking like crap. I know its a cheap exhaust but I expected a little more life out of the components. Anyways powder coating is one of my many hobbies so I figured why not. Turned out pretty good and should continue to look good for the life of the exhaust. Prior to prep Sandblasted down to bare metal Sprayed and into the oven Final product

    After a month of modifications it's finally here: 2019 Chevy Silverado RST, 5.3L 4x4 in Summit White (angry storm trooper edition) List of Mods: - 6 inch BDS Suspension Lift with Fox Racing Shocks - 35 inch Nitto Tires - 20 inch Fuel Wheels - Custom black paint on the center cap of the Fuel wheels to completely black them out and cover the badging - Amp Research retractable running boards - Under Cover Lux color matched bed cover - Debadged handle of the Under Cover Lux bed cover - Painted the handle of the Under Cover Lux bed cover (black to summit white) - Painted the black portion of the tailgate with the back up camera (black to summit white) - Painted the shark fin antenna (black to summit white) - Painted the chrome around the boarder of the front Bow Tie (chrome to summit white) - Replaced the horrible looking and giant radio antenna with a short stubby one - 3m tint on all windows to include the front wind shield - Removed the RST lower bumper and replaced it with the lower bumper off a High Country. We then took the chrome portion and painted it summit white and wrapped it in paint protection film. - Fully debadged the entire truck to give it that nice clean look - GM Branded Borla Exhaust. OF NOTE: The exhaust note on the GM Branded Borla is CONSERVATIVE to say the least! A little too conservative for my liking. After having an Eisenmann Race Exhaust on our BMW X5M, my wife won't let me have anything loud....) - We cut the pipe on the GM Branded Borla Exhaust so it would remain under the truck and not be visible. - Replaced license plate lights with LEDs - Replaced back up lights with LEDs - Custom made clear corner lenses in the front headlights - Disabled the orange running lights behind the clear corners - Replaced the orange turn signal bulbs with a chrome plated ones. This eliminates the orange reflection that standard bulb gives off - Spray on bed liner - Spray on bed liner in the rear wheel wells. This added protection and blacked out the area. - Removed the "chin guard" under the lower front bumper - Removed the cheap looking mud flaps. I have color matched plugs on order to fill in the holes on the side of the truck. - Installed the "Auto Start/Stop Eliminator" - Installed the Escort 360C using a blend mount under the rear view mirror. The radar detector is hard wired into the power supply behind the rear view mirror. - Installed the Escort M1 Dashcam. This is a direct add on to the Escort 360C. - Relocated the "Apple Carplay USB" from the dash into the center console. This was challenging due to the fact that my Silverado has the bench seating up front. - Removed the ugly warning stickers from the sun visors. Minor mod, but it bugs the crap out of me... List of up and coming mods: - GM Branded Cold Air Intake - 4 Layer Ceramic Pro Coating - USB Plug to replace the one that was relocated to the center console. - 2 Sets of Escort ZR5 Laser Shifters that will connect with the Escort 360C - Gap Guards to cover the small gap in the rear wheel well - Color matched plugs to fill in the holes left behind by the plastic mud flaps Special thanks to: Mike Wilson @ Blackjack Speed Shop Rich Ordaz @ Blackjack Speed Shop Phil Sheridan @ Fastheadlights.com

    Well, relatively simple at least. I was tired of having to go into the truck to turn the cargo lights on and off, so I wanted to add a secondary switch in the bed. I searched and found multiple results about adding a secondary set of lights, which was not what I was looking for, so here's my solution. I wanted to add a secondary switch to turn on/off the factory cargo lights, and retain the 10 minute auto-shut off. Through some searching I found that the switch in the truck works by pulsing a momentary ground to a pin on the BCM, which is pretty easy to replicate/extend. Materials: Wire. I used some red/black 2-wire, I'll explain why later. A small scrap of solid core wire. 2 waterproof push button momentary switches. Here's what I did: Soldered a small scrap of solid core wire to both leads to the red/black 2-wire. This made it easier to tap into the BCM. Tapped into pin 18 of the blue plug on the BCM. There's a solid gray wire on that pin. Ran the wire out of the cabin (using this method:) and then down the underside, following a large bundle of wires and using some wire clips that GM/Chevy was nice enough to leave available for use. Popped out one of the cargo tie down plugs, and ran the wires through. Here's why I used the red/black 2-wire - measure enough wire out to go back through the hole and then under the bed to the other side, then cut. Now we have enough wire to install a switch on both sides of the bed. Drilled the plug to fit the push button momentary switch, and installed the switch in the plug. Cut ONLY ONE of the wires at the drivers side hole, and wire it to one lead of the switch. Connect the scrap of wire you just cut off (red in this case) to the other lead of the switch. Run both the red scrap and the black wire back through the hole, and reinstall the plug. I didn't take any pictures of this part unfortunately, but run the red scrap of wire to any grounding point and secure. Then run the black wire to a cargo tie down plug on the other side and repeat the steps to wire and ground it. Then enjoy your 2 new readily accessible cargo light switches! This activates the same as the cargo light switch in the truck, so any modifications you've made like the reverse lights on with the cargo lights will work just the same as if you pressed the switch in the truck, and retain the 10 minute auto shut off. Any comments/questions/clarifications please let me know and I'll do my best to get back to you!

    I posted this in another thread, but they were looking to only have the fogs on with high beams. My solution has the fog lights automatically turn on, and stay on, anytime the parking lights or headlights come on (hi and lo beam). You never have to hit the button. Figured I'd label this as a "How To" in case those are housed somewhere. I'm new to this forum, so let me know if I should be doing this differently. Cheers! Hey guys - recently bought a 2016 Sierra Denali and joined the forum. Stumbled upon this thread while clicking around. I always gain so much from these forums, so I thought I'd give back in my first post. Here is a simple solution I made to have the fog lights automatically turn on with the day time running lights - did this with my previous truck as well (2008 Cadillac Escalade). I bought a diode and used some 14 gauge wire I had laying around. I wrapped 14 gauge wire to each end of the diode and sealed it with marine grade shrink wrap (waterproof). I then got into the engine bay fuse box and pulled the fuses for the fog lights (#49) and day time running lights (#28 or #29 - can be either, only need one). When I put the fuses back in I wedged the wire in one of the slots for the fuse connector, one end of the diode/wire goes in the fog light fuse and the other goes in the DRL fuse. Keep in mind the diode is directional (only allows current one way), so if it doesn't work at first just flip the wire around. Now anytime your DRL's are on, the fog lights will automatically come on. No need to push the fog light button. The fog lights also stay on when you turn on your brights. I attached a photo of my set up, it was taken standing over the driver side fender looking at the fuse box. Ask any questions if you got em!

    Yes lots of people have... You take your 2 wheel drive truck to the chevy dealer and pick out the 4x4 truck that you like best, negotiate a price and whatever you lose out on trading in your 2 wheel drive will be much less than the nightmare of trying to upgrade your 2 wheel drive to 4x4 by buying parts....

    We have three trucks lined up. All 2015 Sierras, 1 SLT and 2 Denalis. Stock Headlights Morimoto Sierra-Spec HID kit in factory housing FX-R Retrofit with XB35 bulbs courtesy or a popular retrofitter FX-R Truck Morimoto Kit FX-R vs Morimoto FX-R vs Stock Results: The Retrofit is obviously the brightest. The FX-R is a very bright and has a good beam. Issues were the build quality. Broken tabs, stripped adjusters and missing parts meant that we were unable to align them to the factory truck we had on site. Awesome upgrade and WELL worth the work, but either do it yourself and make sure it's done right or pay for a skilled retrofitter. The work to open these lights is painful and getting it right is important. Not being able to adjust these ones that he purchased means we will be removing them tomorrow and installing the factory housings back in with a Morimoto kit instead. My Morimoto kit was still quite bright despite being a much higher kelvin. Having this kit in own vehicle, I'm quite happy. I will be doing a retrofit at some point but for the time being I am happy. I have had no issues with the install and have had no issues with reliability since. For the cost and effort, I definitely recommend the TRS kit for these trucks. Great improvement from stock with little work. Stock is obviously rubbish compared to either setup and should be changed out ASAP. Retrofit: 10/10 Function 2/10 Ease of install Morimoto 8/10 Function 6/10 Ease of Install Stock Shitty.

    Went in to get a tire patched. The dealership noticed my chrome rim starting get discolored. They said they would talk to factory rep and call me back so I could bring it to them. Instead they called to say it will be taken care off. This was all them being an advocate for the customer. Only reason I posted my little story is there are so many threads talking about bad dealerships. Just nice to have something positive to share.

    And all is good in the world. I took the advice many of you offered and brought in donuts and explained I might have gone a little overboard. The manager thanked me and in return gave me Gas cards for my inconvenience. I told him I appreciate the gesture and would highly recommend his service bay for friends and family. In fact , last night I received 2 separate calls from 2 separate advisors, on the issue. I mentioned how happy I was with how it all worked out.

    Added some LED engine bay lights. Went with a sealed push button vs pressure switch (since I don't need a light every time I open the hood)

    These are my before and after photos ...... I do not believe the upgrade is as bright as my 2005 GMC, BUT it is much, much better. I can now see the shoulders of the highway and I can see much farther down the highway. I do believe the lighting is AT LEAST 30% better, but probably much more. I think I am willing to drive my new truck in the dark now. I can even see the dark ranch road to turn into the ranch now, whereas before I could not. The first two photos are the before photos. The next two are the after TSB photos. And the last one photo is the OEM headlights with Sylvannia Silverstar Ultra bulbs on my 2005 GMC 2500 HD.
