In 2012 I bought a brand new Denali with the 6.2. A buddy of mine had a 2010 Sierra with about 30k miles on it when I got it. He had a tune and a cat back exhaust on it. With about 500 miles on the 6.2 we decided to race the trucks. We ran about 10 times, went from a roll and dig multiple times. He was right next to me every race with me barely beating him by a half a truck or less. I was very surprised. Fast forward to about 6 months later I had around 8000 miles on my truck still completely stock, his truck was unchanged too, and we ran them again and I would beat him badly, the 6.2 would walk away from his truck until it would hit the speed limiter. I definitely think the truck “woke” up after a few thousand miles, only way I can explain it. I would not have believed that would happen if I didn’t experience it.
Just got finished installing the painted flares on my truck. For anyone looking to install these, the fronts were a little easier to pull off than the rears. Once you start pulling them the clips pull out of the slots on the flares. Most of them stayed in the fender on the truck so I had to pry those out with a fastener removal tool. Some of the clips did break. When I got all of the clips removed I had to straighten out the holes they go in because if they are not flat the flares will not sit close to the body like the ones you pull off. Figured that out the hard way and actually had to pull the driver rear one back off and flatten the holes because it looked like crap. The metal is soft and is fairly easy to flatten back out. I used a dead blow hammer to tap the metal around the holes back flat. The ones I had more trouble getting flat with just the hammer I used the back of a screw driver and tapped the point with the hammer until the metal was flat.
I bought this JL amplified single sub for mine. It’s not down firing but it sounds awesome and hits pretty hard if I want it to. Fits under the driver side rear seat perfectly. https://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/p_45911_JL_Audio_ACP110LG-TW1.aspx?utm_source=google_shopping&utm_medium=Product_Feed&utm_campaign=google_shopping_Price_Comparison&gclid=Cj0KCQjwkK_qBRD8ARIsAOteukBByar_aJh5xOSC8TBkEOGCsdq2UOvUGvauJLE3BzzXwFtvxovjXosaAurQEALw_wcB
I was trying to find the bumper with the exhaust cutouts in chrome on the gm websites and can’t find it. Seems like they haven’t updated the parts catalogs online the new body style. I have looked on eBay but they are all damaged.
I have the same antenna on my 2019 Sierra and I listen a radio station about 50 miles away, I haven’t noticed any loss of reception with it. It’s far enough away that in my old truck when the aftermarket HIDs would come on I would lose some reception and sometimes not pick up the station clearly at all. Haven’t noticed that in this truck. I almost want to say it’s picking up the station better than it did with the stock antenna but that just doesn’t seem like it’s possible to me.
I have about 3000 miles on mine so far. After the first 1000 miles or so I had some hard down shifts into first. It seems to have cleared up now though (fingers crossed). Haven’t had it happen in a while. It’s really smooth now, probably one of the smoothest gm transmissions I’ve had. Always seems to be in the right gear, and I can barely tell it’s shifting up or down unless I’m hard on the throttle. I haven’t had anything done to mine but I bought it at the beginning of July.
Thanks guys. I have the Bose system so sounds like it goes behind the rear seat. Does the rear seat need to be removed to install the plug? I like the idea of the plug better for a “cleaner” install but if it’s easier to just splice into the wires in the kick panel I’ll just do that.
Where exactly does the harness plug in? Is it plugged in behind the rear seat? I’m about to put a sub in my truck and trying to figure out if I want to just splice into the wires or get the harness.
I got the ones on a gm website and the first time I put the driver side window up it went back down on its own. I put it back up slowly and then let the truck sit in the sun for a few hours and haven’t had any trouble since. Here’s a link to the ones I got. https://www.shopchevyparts.com/exterior/2019-sierra-1500-window-vent-visors-crew-cab-channel-dark-smoke/19417480-p-92301893.html
I would like the ability to turn the chimes off completely. I have the Centerpoint system and the chimes are in the amp (or so I've been told) so the chimes play at the same time. Also, the reverse sensors make 2 different sounds on top of each other and not at the same time so it sounds really screwed up. I actually like the fact that the steering wheel controls switch through the XM stations instead of presets.
