  1. New to the forum, just brought home my 2018 Silverado LTZ Redline Edition. No stranger to modifying my vehicles and just ordered in a set of Morimoto XB Headlights as well as a Range AFM disabler. Trading in my 2018 Civic, big step up!

  2. Had a few days off this week before I start my new job on Monday, so decided to tear back into the headlights. I can’t ever leave anything alone!!! Removing the old permaseal was a complete b!tch. When I opened them up the first time to install the Klearz, I went the easy way out and just mashed the perma down in the channel and put butyl over top of it. About 4-5 hours to remove everything and multiple times in and out of the oven. On top of that, I put a bead of clear silicone around the edge after the new butyl dried so had to get that off too. Live and learn... Took the chrome bezel out, used Easy Off heavy duty oven cleaner to strip the chrome. About 10 minutes in on the picture below. 30 min process and it results in gloss black. Installation of Diode Dynamics switchback DRL boards was next. Pretty straight forward process. 5 min epoxy to secure the boards. Reassembly of the lenses and bezels. PG9 cable gland on the back of the housing so I could mount the LED switchback drivers on the outside of the headlight. Wired it all up and test ran before sealing everything back up. Everything is good to go so back in the oven and sealed up! 250F for 10 min to soften the Diode butyl. And the final results. Super happy with how everything turned out!

  3. Finally pulled the trigger and gave my 2017 Silverado 1500 Rally 1 another upgrade. Thanks to @pgamboa and White Automotive and Media I was able to retrofit the Denali cluster and new leather steering wheel into my truck.? I was able to achieve controls from the steering wheel to my aftermarket radio as well! Huge plus. ? I'm very happy with how this turned out. ?

  5. Got a few projects done this past weekend! Noticed a loud pop after turning all the way right, upon further investigation torn pass side CV boot which obviously flung grease all over the suspension components. Got it swapped out for an OEM axle from GMpartsgiant, only casualty was a sway bar end link that was extremely rusted and even my 1/2" Milwaukee fuel impact wouldnt make it budge. Breaker bar finally snapped the bolt which was expected at this point. Funny story while at the local parts store.. I go in and tell the lady I need a sway bar end link, AC Delco. 2014 GMC Sierra half ton. She asks "what model?" uhhh.. I already told you. "Yes I understand it's an SUV but is it a 1500, 2500, 3500?" Excuse me, what?! SUV???? Then she brings me a tie rod end.. OK not to judge but I think you need to find a new profession! Next up, a project I've had on the backburner for months. Upgrading the terrible OEM Projectors! Went with The Retrofit Source Retroquik system. NHK G5-X projectors, Morimoto D2H 35w 6k bulbs, and Hylux A0050 45w ballasts. With the higher powered ballasts, brings the temp color rating down to 5k - 5500k which is what I was looking for. Headlights out, time to start cutting. Didn't want to mess with butyl and separating the lens from the housing again so cut the back piece of the housing off. Made sure to have at least two notches so for assembly it fit together like a puzzle. Propane torch and a utility knife was my cheap way of having a hot knife. Went this route instead of using a dremel to avoid having plastic shavings inside. OEM projector on the left, G5-X on the right. Check out those amazing fresnels that GM decided was such a great idea! New bracket wasn't a perfect fit, had to get the dremel out again. Then while mounting the bracket, I noticed my kit had four bolts and only two nuts. Luckily I had some small M4 lock nuts laying around or else I was SOL for the night. Installed and time for a test fit before sealing the headlight back up. First test fire, system is flickering. Relays are buzzing so I know it's a power/ground issue. Rechecked all my connections, got the multimeter out, hour and a half later I'm at a loss what's wrong. Last thing to check was the fuse for the relay harness which I figured couldn't be the issue because it's either blown or not blown, right? Not always the case as I figured out.. one of the pins on the 20a fuse was cracked causing arcing through the 12v power. Replaced fuse, voila, we have light! Now I realize why they always say to check your grounds and fuses first. Sealed the headlights back up with black RTV silicone, let it sit for 24 hours and reassembly started. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk. Output shots below! Wish I had a better "before" picture to compare. Pictures don't really do it justice how much the lighting has improved overall. Nice cut off line, brighter and larger hotspot, and the best part I won't be blinding on coming traffic anymore.

  10. I don't think I have heard of this one before. While I understand the truck should behave as expected (and this might be WAD still) the auto-stop isn't saving you much at all. That said, I know it's not an actual resolution to the issue but have you considered moving out of Cali? If you're worried about gas prices and owning a truck in the same sentence, you're in the wrong state and perhaps voting for the wrong party. While the issues in TX drove up costs, the regulations being introduced will only keep them driving upward.

  13. I just bought a new 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Duramax with the Premium Plus package. When test driving it, the 3.0L diesel engine really impressed me, especially compared to a Ram EcoDiesel (GDE tuned) I had a few years ago. Now I just have to get a few things to add like all weather floor liners, a bed cover, vent visors and get the windows tinted.

  15. Just can't figure it out! My new 2021 Sierra SLT has 1500 miles on it now, and despite everything I read around here, I can't find a thing wrong with it! Every function and feature works as it should. Must be some sort of strange anomaly!

  16. Not really K2 related, but finally have my own garage to start working on some more mods in the future! Soon to be wife and I closed on our first house this past Friday. While most of my time will be getting some inside updates done, looking forward to an epoxy floor, mud/tape/paint walls, and setting up my "dream garage" build. I'd say my family and extended family have good taste in trucks!

  17. After years of detailing everyone else’s vehicles, I was able to share some love with mine. Finally was able to do a single step correction and ceramic coating I used the cquartz UK and topped it with Reload.

  20. What did I do to my truck today? I bought it. I was a member here about 4 years ago but I sold my 2015 and somehow ended up getting a Tacoma. Well, today I traded that in today because I've really missed my Silverado since I got rid of it. Anyway, here is my new (to me) 2017 LT Z71 in Pepperdust metallic. Already pulled off the dealer stickers and plate frames. Also I still had my Weathertech mats and under seat storage from my 2015 in the garage and put those in. My mind is racing with all the things I want to do. Haha

  21. Had a nice 60 degree day this weekend to detail inside and out. Not often we get above 30 in March! Bucket wash, clayed, Turtle Wax jet black spray wax and CG VRP on all plastic trim & tires. Wanted to see how the spray wax works compared to my normal sealant routine (chemical guys black light followed by butter wax). Just in time before we get snow and rain tonight..

  26. They want all these EV's but guess where all the stuff to get the batteries are, underground........ Bunch of stupid paper pushers that only do things because of their agenda. The US will never be carbon free by 2040 or 2050, it's impossible.

  29. It's been a long time since I posted here but thought it was time to check in. I remember when I first got my truck and reading all the issues I said oh boy what did I get myself into, you know the Chevy shake thing and catch cans etc. Well my truck has gone over 100,000 miles and honestly it's hands down the BEST vehicle I've ever owned period! It gets great mileage, has plenty of power and still drives like a new truck. I am more than happy with it !

  32. Got three wheels done today, last one tomorrow morning. The caliper bracket bolts on these things are crazy torqued! 170lbs-ft in the front and 148lbs-ft in the back. Not alotta room in there for leverage. Anyways, went with some dimpled and slotted black zinc coated rotors (lifetime guarantee against warping and cracking) and ceramic pads from brakeperformance.com

  38. Started to clean her up in anticipation of doing a total paint correction, ( waiting on a new polisher and lake country pads) and a coat of CG Hydro Slick Ceramic Coating hyperwax, and full detail underneath. I'm going to pull the Borla exhaust off and clean it up so it looks new.... Not that tough a job . Clean all the rusty spots up and shoot it with satin black rust-oleum. While it looks good as it sits , I can make it way better. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

  39. And his name is dieselfan1. Not reggie hammond.[emoji24] Rolling on 38x13.50x20 Trail Grapplers now instead of 37" Ridge Grapplers. Clearance provided by a Zone 1.5" body lift. 2" total gain. 10.5" total lift. Feels way taller. Drives awesome. Little more noise but not bad at all. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

  44. I've seen a few T1 around the Forum with quad tips and it's been tempting me. I love the look on my Vette and figured I would try it on my truck. Big thanks to @lapoolboy for providing the tips! Getting the factory tips off was a pain but putting the new ones on wasn't bad at all. I've got a friend who's a great welder and he made short work of the project. I really love the way they turned out and they made the exterior sound of my Corsa system just a hair deeper.
