  1. Glad to see this is still working for people. GM should really put this out to their techs so they know how to fix it.
  2. Lets See Some Towing Pics!

    For those of you with a 5.3L 2014+ truck. I added a super spring, super chips tuner, and 4.10 gears. Tows much better! I also did a 6” lift on 35s so the gears were really needed. Those of you in a 3.42 or 3.73 are probably towing just fine. I had 3.42 before lift. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Added a SuperSpring as well to improve sag and sway on truck while towing. Ended up with the DQS tow mirrors and using Phil’s RZY harness and door harnesses plus diode mode. Mirrors and lighting are awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 2014+ Suspension Lifts

    Hey fellow lifted truck friends. Slightly off topic; looking for a solid snow or cable suggestion for a 35x12.5x20 setup I have on my 6” lifted truck. Have never needed chains and only carry a set that doesn’t even fit as its required to carry in some winter conditions in CA. Just bought a 34’ trailer that’s 8k lbs and want to have a good set of chains on the rear tires of the truck if I get into icy road conditions as I’m taking it winter camping often up in the Sierra Mountains. Any recommendations welcomed. I totally get safe driving and common sense go a lot further than a set of chains. Won’t be putting 14k lbs on ice if avoidable. Want an option to help get me out of bad weather and road conditions if I absolutely must drive. I’m an experienced tower of a 5k lbs boat, just not in winter conditions. Thanks!

  6. This thread seems to be the closest I could find on here to address my research. I drive up into the Sierra Mountains quite a bit in winter (Mammoth Mountain). Been doing this drive nearly 20 years now and have never needed chains. I have a 2014 GMC SLT 5.3L 4x4 with 6” lift, 35” TOYO RTs, 4.10 Yukon gears (3.42 stock), trailer break, SuperSpring, tuner and all sorts of other fun stuff. I’ve towed my boat a lot in summer but have never towed in winter (obviously). I just bought a 34’ trailer that weighs about 8k lbs loaded and is designed for 4 season camping. Here’s my question: what can I do besides driving slow, allowing a lot of time to stop and avoiding ice, to successfully pull the trailer in winter conditions? Mammoth does a great job keep the roads clear and throws plenty of gravel. Would anyone recommend chains on the trailer in icy conditions as well as the truck? How about the truck itself: chains or cables and any recommendations for 35” tires? I’ve driven in some crazy conditions up there without chains but never with 8k lbs behind me. Will be keeping a close eye on weather and not traveling unless safe as there’s a 3k ft climb in the last 45 mins of the drive and I don’t intend on going up or down that hill with 14k lbs when there’s ice. There’s a nice back RV park at the bottom of that grade! Thanks, Nate Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Did the DL3 to DQS upgrade last night on my 2014 SLT. The DQS (GM OEM tow mirrors for SLT/Denali trim) worked with my factory setup to do the power fold, turn signals, heated mirror, memory retention, power adjust, etc.. What didn’t work are the cargo lights or running lamps (running lamps act as puddle light). So, I used Phil’s RZY harness since I have a 2014 plus the new door harnesses from him. The mirror and harness install in the door is fairly simple. Just takes some time to get everything off and back on if you’re being careful not to break anything. The RZY harness was quite a bit of work given the tight space you have to pull the BCM apart and land the pins plus put it all back together and land another wire in the fuse box under the hood. Took me 8 hours from start to finish. Everything works great though!! Thanks Phil! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. WTB/ Trade 2014-2018 DQS Tow Mirrors

    Purchased a pair slightly used. Thanks.
  10. Will trade my chrome DL3 (fully functional power folding mirrors off my SLT) for your DQS fully functional power folding tow mirrors. Thanks, Nate Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Truck is back in the shop. I bought a 34’ travel trailer so it’s time for a few upgrades: 1. Trailer break 2. 4.10 gears 3. Superchips Tuner (recalibrate for tires and gears) 4. Add a leaf (level truck since I didn’t add the leaf at time of BDS 6” lift and the nose is sticking up a bit. Want the truck level before putting that trailer on it. 4. Tow mirrors Was hesitant to throw another $3k or so into the truck since I want a Duramax but the 2020 is a year away and I’m not digging the 2019 1500 body styles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Price reduced to $450. Will likely pull them off the truck this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. These are a take off from my 2014 GMC Sierra SLT. They are the premium, fully functional mirrors: power fold, puddle light, turn signal, heated, memory, etc.. I have 50k miles on the truck. The mirrors are in excellent shape. I will add several photos close up photos when the sun is out tomorrow. I am only taking them off as I bought a travel trailer and I am swapping them for tow mirrors. Will trade for fully functional tow mirrors, e.g. A1 or OEM GM. These are ~$500 each to buy from the dealer new. Price is $450 for both. Buyer pays shipping. Thanks, Nate
  14. Interesting that the gear ratio is 3.23. Current 5.3L come with 3.08, 3.42 or 3.73 with the max tow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wheels for sale too? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
