  1. So at 7K you are well within the limits of this trucks capacity. With the 6.2 and the max tow package you can load up 9200lbs with a crew cab and standard box. It's going to suck on gas but if your not doing it all the time no worries there. If you are then the the new 1500 diesel might be up your alley. 460 lb-ft of torque there with that setup. It's going to pull like a freight train. All of the trailering details are available using the link below. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/chevrolet/na/us/english/index/shopping-tools/download-catalog/02-pdf/2019-chevrolet-trailering-guide.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjVpJKGwebkAhVKhOAKHeq9CTQQFjAaegQIBRAC&usg=AOvVaw3teP9Ar9D6wENuLM4CrbmR Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. I like the antenna for this very reason. If it touches the height pole going into the deck, then I know I know I'm not going to fit in the deck. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  4. Cool video. Thought I would share it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Ok, In order to get the OPT-7 Lights to work properly the system has to be powered on when the door tigger switch is activated. I think this is a poor design, and I hope they fix that in future versions. That aside, this is a 10 dollar fix for this situation, and allows you to run the courtesy lights, as well as get the lights turned off automaticaly when you leave the vehicle using a couple of relays. I finally got everything bench tested and really for final installation in the truck. Heres the explanation on it Legend Pin 1 - Constant Power Pin 2 - Switched Power Pin 3 - Door Trigger Pin 4 - Relay Power Bridge Pin 5 - Opt 7 Power Output Pin 6- Ground Door- Door Switch Power Relay Running - Accessory Power Relay So at a high level when the door relay is idle it passes current to the accessory relay thru the normally closed pin to the accessory relay which closes that switch. If there is no accessory power on the lights don't come on. Once the door opens it closes the door relay and opens the running relay and the lights turn white. Door closes and I turn on the truck, the running relay is now powered passing power direct to the lights and they turn back to the preselected color that you set. Bench tested this setup and it works great. Going to install on the truck this week.
  6. Anyone got a part number on the factory bed plug??
  7. Oh yeah. My baby has new feet and shoes. Nitto Terra Grappler G2; 285/55R22 34" rolling size. Perfect fit on this lifted truck. Slight rub on full lock. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. If you haven't looked hard at this yet, I'm thinking it's going to be a simple job. For my LT TB there is only one harness that is going to the seat thru the center console. There are only 4 wires in that harness. A constant power and ground, and I'm guessing the switch for the heated seats.
  9. This looks great. Show it to us on the truck.
  10. Yeah. It's getting ridiculous really. Innovation is upon us.
  11. It's accessory power. When the ignition is in Accessory mode or running that pin is powered.
  12. Yes There is only one slot that is switched. It's the spade to the left of the 50 amp circuit breaker. Top right of this picture. You have to use a spade connection to grab it and split it off from there. Add an inline fuse and your good to go. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Ok, I know folks are going to ask how I did this so here are the details. So I thought I was going to be able to tap into the lighting circuit for the LED lights but our trucks are so smart now that when I did that I was pulling too much current and I got an error message in the system. It subsequently shut off bed the lights to protect the system. So if you want to put this type of lighting kit on your truck you will need to have a few wiring skills to get started with this. As for materials you will need a few things. Grab any 20 dollar set off Amazon. I went with the: AUTUNEER 60Inch LED Truck Bed... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073ZGNDTC?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Then you are going to need a 12V 4 pole relay. I grabbed a whole box of these on Amazon, as I have a few more projects to complete that I will need these for. MICTUNING 12V Fuse Relay Switch... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H5NMFGR?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Get some good quality 16 or 14 gauge wire. I used silicone but if your on a budget get the cheap PVC stuff. 16 Gauge Silicone Wire Spool 50... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CMYVF3J?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Finally, you are going to need some splicing clips in different sizes. Between 16 gauge and 10 gauge. Procedure: I used the trailer connection wires to splice into for constant power and ground to feed this setup. It's your call on where you pull power from, but this was the most convenient for me. Pins 1 and 4 are your ground and power respectively. Tap into those power connections as well as the wires for the existing LED bed lights in the corner of your bed. The Bed lights are going to be the trigger signal for your relay. Wire up pins 85 and 86 to the ground wire and positive wires of your existing LED lights respectively. Wire up the power wire from your trailer hitch +12V to pin 30 of the relay Wire up the new LED light positive input to pin 87 on the relay. Connect the ground wire from the trailer hitch to the ground of the LED lights. Now when you hit that switch in the cab the relay will trigger and power will flow to the lights. After it's tested that it works fine zip tie everything up to the existing wiring harnesses underneath the tail of the truck. To protect the relay, since it's outside in the weather, I bagged it to make it more water resistant. Works great!! It's a simple job really. Just wish the trucks were not so smart that I had to do this. Pretty soon we won't be able to make any mods the way things are going. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
