  1. I believe they are referring to the off road screen you can select with the right steering wheel pad. The same way you would get to the mpg, trans temp etc. You will have to check the box in settings. It’s not standard on all trucks until 2017 I think. But should be available with any truck that has z71. As far as the orange light mine isn’t really bright. The only way I can see it in the day light is by covering the knob with both hands and looking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The red light is only for neutral or a fault in the system. Should be orange when in 2 or 4wd. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Charging system

    It’s normal. I think it helps save the battery by not constantly “over” charging the battery. I had a 2011 2500 Sierra with a plow and it had the original battery when I traded it in 6mths ago. Never had a plow truck battery last 7+ yrs. My 2017 Silverado 2500 the gauge was about 14v all winter and stays about 12.5 unless the lights are on. If you want it to be 14v turn your lights on.

  4. Noise After Cabin Filter Replacement

    Thanks I checked the arrows in the right direction. Have to wait and see if it goes away I guess Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Changed the cabin filter on my 17' silverado. Had the humming or prop plane sound afterwards. Wish I had read more into it before changing it. But the video I watched didn't for warn me lol. I know debris fell down in. I tried vacuuming it out but no luck. Has anyone waited it out and had the noise go away?
  6. Which shackle did you use? Never mind I see you used McGaughys. Also is that @2" hole or the 1"?
  7. Any one have pics of their drop shackles installed? Thinking of going this route with mine.
  8. Tire and Rim upgrade

    Yeah I decided on the 275/70's I'm going to buy lowering shackles for the rear. I loaded my wheeler in the back for the first time since buying this truck. And the ramps are pretty steep with the truck stock. I think after adding taller tires it will be to steep.
  9. If rotating your tires made it better then it's either a bent rim or the tires. I had a bent rim on my 11 Sierra HD. I knew the rim was bent because it an 2 big weights on it. Argued with the dealer the rim was bent and I ended up buying tires. It was better but not perfect. Replaced 1 rim and it was perfect after that. Give the rotation some time to scuff off and see if it gets better. I would be it's the tires if the dealer rotated them. FWIW I've heard mixed reviews on the KO2's.
  10. Tire and Rim upgrade

    I was looking at aftermarket wheels an +18 offset.
  11. Tire and Rim upgrade

    I’m not surprised. The way these trucks are built.
  12. Anyone got pics of the 275/70R18s? Is it a general consensus that a 34X11.5 is the largest you can fit without touching the suspension?
  13. Tire and Rim upgrade

    Oh gotcha. I just worry about it riding “rougher” with timbrens. Not that it has a bad ride now I just wouldn’t want it any firmer.
  14. Tire and Rim upgrade

    I’ve ran timbrens in my previous GM plow trucks. But the 2011+ don’t need them IMO. Both trucks I’ve had the truck only squats an inch when my v plow is raised. These trucks are much heavier duty than previous models. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
