    2014 Chevy Crew Cab LTZ 6.2 Max trailering
  1. 6.2L power!

    Managed to burn some rubber off with my ~7000 lb camper attached in a walmart parking lot in front of about 30 friends of mine. Needless to say they were impressed.
  2. The cig lighter in the covered console is only on with the Truck and RAP (Retained Accessory Power). Regards, David
  3. Stars_Fan I got it from Donald Hardy, Product Specialist 1-888-855-4621 Ext. 415 autocustoms.com Keep an eye on their site usually they run a 10% discount on Sundays. I was able to get mine for $380.00. But that was after purchasing a Pop N Lock, Tonneau Cover and the AMP Power running boards. BEDRUG Full Bedliner Part Number: BRC07CCK Sale Price: $413.25 http://autocustoms.com/p-511-bedrug-full-bedliner.aspx?submodel=&submodel2=5.8%20ft%20Bed&submodel3= Regards, David
  4. Finished the BedRug install last night. Now it is time to clean the truck again. Regards, David
  5. Mike 1220 see this post. It is much easier than the old way. http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/156839-assist-steps-running-boards-nerf-bars/?p=1454393
  6. Install was not too bad. Things to watch out for. When you attach the motors to the arms make sure they are not fully extended or it is a pain to tighten bolt 10. I found that you could easily attach the motor to the arm once the arm is attached to the truck. But you must attach it before you attach the running boards. I would also complete all steps including the LED lighting attachments then do the running boards. This is so that you do not have to be a contortionist to wire tie them up after the running boards are on. I would put the running boards on LAST once everything else is in place. It took me about 4 hours but I was also installing the POP N LOCK at the same time since the wiring was going into the same area. Not having to crack open the doors and hack that wiring I am sure saves a ton of time and future failure points. As my truck is on 20" tires I did not have to use any jacks, just my crawler and me on my back.

  7. OK OK here is the proof. The POP N LOCK, well you will just have to take my word on it. It was smart on my part to wait to install that when I did the boards since I had to route the wiring and essentially remove the same interior pieces. I have the truck BedRug coming later today and I will install that soon with the weather sealing kit for the tailgate and the foam blocks under the side rails. It is a little dirty since we had a ton of rain here last night and into this morning. Extended Retracted LED lighting PNP connector. Wow did not see the smudges before this picture was taken.
  8. Installed my Plug and Play Amp power boards, the Pop and Lock and the GM under seat box. Just waiting for my bed rug to get here and I will be all set with this truck for now. Regards, David
  9. So I installed my AMP Plug and Play boards today. I think I almost ran the battery down playing with them and watching them work. Awesome product. Regards, David
  10. SHHHH don't tell anyone. I can see well enough to know where the back end of the setup is. Total camper size hitch to rear bumper is 30' 7". I am waiting on the CIPA 2014 slip on mirrors. They stated that they are tooling up for a run of them now and expect them to be out in 60-90 days. Until then I will most likely get a cheap pair of those suction cup extension mirrors. I just did not like the look of the "trailer mirrors". I do not plan on driving around much of a long distance for now anyways. Regards, David
  11. Towing with the 6.2 V8

    Just picked up my 2014 Grey Wolf 26DBH. Got the truck so I could get a bigger trailer. I am not disappointed at all with how my truck is towing this. Had the setup weighed. My 383 miles down to get the trailer I got 22.5 MPG running around 75 MPH. On the way back running around 60-70 MPH I got 10.5 MPG. Can not complain at all. Love this setup. For those that are interested here is my scale sheet with a full tank of gas and the camper stock from dealer. Steer Axle 3100 lb Drive Axel 3780 ib Trailer axel 4980 ib Gross weight 11860 ib Regards, David

  13. I was told that I should have a shipping tracking number later today. Here is to hoping. Regards, David
  14. Open tailgate height?

    I just picked up my LTZ CC 6.2. max tow 4x4 Monday. I just went and measured and it is from the ground to the top of the open tail gate 35 1/4 inches on a flat surface.
  15. Funny you mention this. Was told it was in stock on Monday and then today I was informed it is back ordered for 2 weeks. You know I am willing to pay that even though it is pretty steep if all it requires is to run 2 wires from the running boards into the cabin to attach to their harness. Better than ripping apart all 4 doors on a new truck. Besides think of the time savings and the cleaner install with less wires taped into. Regards, David
