  1. Thanks for the info. I've been looking around for quite awhile researching but seem to get nowhere. You guys have been a great asset in the past, figured I would try here.
  2. Hello Folks, Bought a 2011 Crew Cab about a year ago, and needing to replace the tires. I've had some Kelly Tires and Bridgestone Revo II's in the past with varying results. Wondering what you guys are running? I'd like something that's good in rain and snow, but that's also quiet and long lasting. I don't do any off roading. Hoping you guys can help me narrow down what to pick. Thanks in advance.
  3. What brand did you use? There seems to be so many knock off stuff, I don't want to end up buying some cheap POS. Thanks.
  4. All these views and no posts? I'm just looking for other options, mainly ones that will cover the existing holes that will remain once I pull off the 'whale tail'. Wondering if this is long enough to do the job? http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/results.cfm?singlepart=1&AddPartNumber=12495717&partnumber=12495717
  5. I bought a used Century Cap to put on the back of my 2004 Silverado 1500. The cap fits great, but due to the "Whale Tail" style tailgate "cap", the door does not close. Has anyone found anything that is similar to this whale tail that bolts in its place? I like the ruggedness of this and really don't want to lose it if I don't have to. I've been told the only real replacements are the ones with the 3M tape that 'stick on'. If that is my only option, then I guess I will have to go with it. But I will take any suggestions. Stealer wants $138 for the GM one.
  6. Another Wisconsin Guy....just west of Milwaukee. Guess I missed the road trip to Appleton in 2003?!? Lol.
  7. Im still confused about some stuff, but I will continue to re-read posts till I get it. I do have a question though. About this "Slave" thing. I assume it works something like IDE channels on PC's, only there is only 1 in our vehicles. If I wanted mp3 compatibility, and found a changer that handled mp3s, could I hook this up in place of the regular 6disc changer? Im sorry if this seems like a dumb question. I know I need to get rid of this "Dumb" Bose crap amp before I go nuts. I hauled an Escalade today, along with a Honda Odyssey. Man, GM really pisses me off after I saw the electronics in this Odyssey. It was touch screen navigation, and when you put the vehicle in reverse, the screen switches over to a live camera view of the rear. How cool is that? I mean yea, it may not be a big deal to most people. It just pisses me off how advanced these foreign cars are becoming, while we still end up paying all this money for the "LT" package, only to get a hunk of metal for an AMP. Hehe. I love your setup, I just want to be able to pop in cds full of MP3's. Thanks. -Brian
  8. Here is a REAL good source of all this info compressed down to just data: (Note: part numbers are listed here to) TNR INSTALL INFO Yes, the nav dvd needs to be in to be navigating. If you want to play cds at same time, you need add a cd changer. dave <{POST_SNAPBACK}> How do I know if mine is the lux on none lux model <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Look in the glove box, if you find a code that says Y91 or Y92, you have the LUX package. If you see U6C (I think) you have the non-LUX package. If I were to bet, you don't have the LUX package. It's only seen on the Escalades and Denalis. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Its UC6. Pisses me off. I have the LT package and they skimp out on the AMP.
  9. the one more modification that linda and i had to do was to cut/grind a little plastic piece behind the bezel (you'll see when you take the bezel off) area inorder to get the cd changer to slide in all the way. this is the only cutting you'll probably have to do. we talked about this on one of the earlier posts. with this little piece out of the way, the cd changer slides in perfectly and just use two tapping screw to hold it in place. for me grinding away the plastic piece provided me with an opening to run the cable through from the head unit to the cd changer. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I think this is the piece you are talking about cutting to allow more room for the changer. Hope this picture helps. Picture
  10. Anyone feel like doing a step-by-step, detailed with pictures install guide for those of us who are too dumb to know what half the stuff you are talking about is? Id really like to change my stock system as it really doesn't sound that great. I just don't know which way to go. This mod looks really cool. I just have to find me a Installing a NAV unit and nice sound system for Dummies book
  11. Thanks for all the info. I've had strobes for years. I know they are grounded through the powerpack and whatnot. Just seemed kind of weird. Guess I'll see if it happens again. I do appreciate all the insight though, as always
  12. Even if its not even tied into anything else? And also...why just now? The strobes have been in there for over 6 months?
  13. Ok, so first off...after dropping off my truck...the dealer calls and asks me if I had this problem while I had my "emergency lights" on? (Im on a fire department). I said no why. Their first instinct was to put blame on what they refer to as an "after market add-on". I said it was not the aftermarket addon. First off, they have been in for more than a year with no problems. Second, my whole light system is completely isolated from everything else. They then moved to my strobe cables saying it might be interfering with some computer box on the drivers side. I said, no try again. Strobe cables are shielded to prevent such a thing. Later on, they said it was 2 censors....if I can remember what they called them, I think a crank sensor, and a throttle position sensor? Make any sense? Something about they both monitor each other, and if they dont get the same reading, it pops that error message up and sets a code. Apparently they got a code but couldn't reproduce the problem. Looking at my receipt after I picked up my truck...it says: Systematic Testing Code P2135 Replace Failed TBI Unit & Reprogram PCM Again, I'm not a mechanic so I don't really have any idea what this is. Any help would be greatly appreciated Have a great weekend!
