Folks, I've owned GM trucks for 25 years: a '93 GMC stepside regular cab, a '97 Chevy stepside regular cab Z-71, an '07 Silverado extended cab Z-71, and a '10 Silverado extended cab Z-71. These new trucks are, quite frankly, the butt-ugliest thing that I've ever seen on the road. I've loved all the GM trucks I've owned, but I recently pulled the trigger on an '18 F-150 SCREW XLT with the ecoboost 3.5 and FX-4 package. I'm not in love with the new Ford yet (and honestly wish I'd never traded my '10 Silverado), but I'm REALLY glad that I didn't buy a new Silverado or Sierra. What the hell were they thinking - or smoking - when they designed these things?
Like the title says, is there any way to add Bluetooth audio streaming capability to an OEM (non-Bose) head unit in a 2010 Silverado? As much as I'd love to swap out the stereo, I just can't justify spending the money on a 6-year old truck. Thanks in advance! Scott
manley posted a topic in Off-TopicThanks for clicking, now I need you to please take my dissertation survey for a chance to win an Apple iPad mini. Some of you know that I am a professor of business and entrepreneurship at Valdosta State University. I am (finally) in the latter stages of my doctoral program, and for my dissertation I am examining the relationships between entrepreneurs’ gender, their attitudes toward seeking assistance from entrepreneurship centers, their utilization of entrepreneurship centers, and subsequent changes in their firms’ financial performance. As a token of my appreciation for your participation in this study, I will select one respondent at random to receive an Apple iPad mini. On average, respondents take about 15 minutes to complete the survey. To be eligible to win the iPad mini, you must also provide your name and contact information. However, my study is being supervised by the Institutional Review Board and as such your identity and individual responses will be kept confidential. Thank you in advance for participating in this important study. Here is the link to the survey: http://coles.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_4T5qjP6kXcUWAw5
manley replied to JLeosnow's topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500What he said. You can buy the vinyl on eBay if nothing else... I'd try a local sign shop first, though.
I have the Du-Ha brand in my 2010. It's great, and one advantage of the Du-Ha over some of the others is that it has a built-in gun rack. That works awesome for keeping the deer rifle stowed away in the truck during the season... out of sight, and legal for transport too!
I tow a pretty heavy travel trailer (about 7,500 pounds, about 1,000 pound tongue weight) with my Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Z-71 (6.2L, 3.42). In pursuit of a better towing experience, I installed the Addco swaybar recently. I had previously done some 1,500 pound overleaf helper springs to keep the truck level (I also have the 2" Rough Country leveling kit in the front). I haven't towed yet because life keeps getting in the way... All I can say at this point is "dang!" I really didn't expect my ride to be significantly compromised when empty, but you can definitely tell that it is much rougher. In fact, I'm even considering removing the sway bar! I actually don't tow that much, and I could put it back on when I'd be talking a longer trip. Anyone else have experience with this? Thanks, scott
manley replied to zibzer's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMI don't have any experience with it, but I did download and install OS 7 yesterday. So far, no observable change in the operation of Bluetooth or Siri. However, tell me more about how you get navigation over your truck speakers via Bluetooth. I'm intrigued.
