  1. My truck is a 2014 but I retrofitted to 2016 LED GMC housings about 4 years ago. Today the passenger low beam didn’t come on. I tried high beams which both came on but when switching back to low it still didn’t come on. I then turned lights off and waited a minute and back on and then both low beams came on. is my housing about to crap out of is it just the module mounted on the back of housing?
  2. I was really set on Nitto Ridge Grapplers 35x12.5r20 but after all the research I have found a lot of reviews saying they are terrible in rain and snow. Some reviews say they are great is rain/snow but it’s 50/50 it seems. I currently have Toyo RT and they are also terrible in snow and ride much harder in winter. I have read 3 peak snowflake rated tires are softer compound for winter and snow driving which narrows it down to the Falken At3W or the Mickey Thompson which both are 3peak rated. I am leaning to the Mickey Thompson based on the looks but they are so new I have only found 1 review on you tube stating they ride great and have a nice soft ride and quiet. I had Mickey Thompson atzp3 7 years ago and the were the worst tire in cold weather and snow which makes me Leary on going with the Baja boss. Any other suggestions on aggressive looking but must be good in rain and snow?
  3. I currently have 35x12.5r20 toyo rt E load 10 ply tires and need new tires. I really like the ridge grappler look but they and most tires my size are now F load. Anyone go from 10 to 12 ply notice a big difference in ride quality?
  4. So my truck has always had a harsh shift 1-2 and 2-3 in the morning until trans temp is around 120-150 then shift smooth. I was alway told it’s the programming holding shifts longer to warm it up but I was in a friends 2014 Silverado and his is smooth shifting all the time even on cold starts and his doesn’t hunt Around for gears. If I manually shift mine it is seamless and smooth. I was also told try changing fluid which I did a week ago which did make it smoother but now is back to harsh shifting. I know it has to be a programming issue and not mechanical since it is seamless when manually shifting. Anyone had luck with any TSB to reprogram the computer? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I have this same issue and took mine to the dealer today. They diagnosed it as my negative battery cable harness being bad and needs to be replaced. It is drawing too many mili amps but they said they don’t see any corrosion visible. Also Battery cable harness isn’t covered under the extended platinum GM warranty. They want to charge 3 hrs labor plus the cable total of about $800! Does this sound like an accurate diagnosis and I am pretty sure I could change the cable myself. Has anyone else replaced their battery cables?
  6. So I have a Diablo Intune with custom tune from Diablew. The engine tune is great but I’m on my 5 th trans tune and just cannot get rid of the hard 1-2 shift. Currently only changes made to the tranny tune now are WOT shift point rpm, and shift quickness.. everything else is stock settings. I like the shift feel of the stock trans tune but hate how it hunts around when I go to accelerate while moving and there is a delay until power kicks in. Ha Sanyo next used the stock trans tune and modified a setting to get rid of the delay Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I know this is an old thread but do you know what size type of capacitor I should tap into my drl wire? The drl cutoff circuit is intermittently not working and I’m going to remove it and just go back to straight harness. The drl doesn’t come back on after using the turn signal and I tried replacing the resistor and relay. Just going to remove it I prefer the drl staying on with the turn signal just world like to try fixed the flickering strobing drl on the cold start. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. The ride is much better now mostly because I got rid of the Mickey Thompson ATZ tires and switched to Toyo RT. Also I unbolted the shocks just to see how stiff the springs were and they were actual very soft. I could bounce the rear easily so it’s the fox shocks that were extremely stiff. They have softened up to where the ride is pretty good. If I had a 17 or 18in rim and more sidewall the ride would be even better. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. Are you making an selling these? I will take a set if so Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I am going with a hard folding next time around avoiding the vinyl cover. Who has had a hard folding cover that has lasted them more the 3-5 years without replacing various parts. I like the Bak folding covers like Mx4 but hesitant after poor quality of my current cover. Any other brands that people have first hand experience and it holding up? I have had a few different tonneau cover brands over the last 20 years and non of them last longer than 4-5 years. My current one is a Bak roll x now called Revolver. The Bak was around $800 and I figured it would be a high quality cover and last longer than my past covers. Unfortunately the Bak is pretty much slowly started falling apart after 2 years old. The seals started separating from the cover right after the warranty was up then the felt liner underside fell off the first hot day in its 2nd year. Today I noticed the vinyl top that covers the aluminum hard roll up part is splitting at the folds. My truck is always garaged and I always use 303 protectant in it. The cover I would say will be junk by next year. So 4-5 years is the life span on the Bak rolling hard cover. I figured after nearly spending $1000 it should last awhile.

  12. No I had the katzkin dealer install. I think it was only 3 or 400 for the labor Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Wow looks great! So you are basically at trail boss height with the 2” level kit and can fit 35s on aftermarket offset wheels Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I have 35x12.5 r20 Toyo RT and I called Toyo and they said 35psi for my truck. Call them they will ask make model of truck and tell you the correct psi for the larger size tire. there is a conversion chart they also have on the website to convert from stock tire rating and psi to e load psi for 1/2 ton truck.

  15. Absolutely I love mine I upgraded to full leather and no vinyl. The eBay kits for around 500 are only leather surfaces on front seats and the rear is just the insert. There is an upgrade for the back seats to have leather on all seat surfaces and side edges are vinyl. The full upgrade that I got is all leather everywhere. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
