  1. I’ve had mine on since the group buy with zero problems. Just can’t get my paint and clear to stay on my parking sensors so they match the covers! Tape still is holding fine on them. I’ll say the small piece that goes above the hitch does have a little wiggle to it every now and then. I think it’s from people stepping on the bumper right above it instead of using the steps in the corners. I’ll give it a little push every now and then, but it doesn’t seem it’s going anywhere. They hold up fine to high pressure washes as well. This is the only pic I have on this new phone currently of any part of the covers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I forgot about this thread. I’m still not back in business fully lol. It seems like it tends to work if tethered and the screen is not locked. If untethered and screen is unlocked, I have had some success, but I have to just say my command like a tongue twister and repeat as many times as fast as I can before it quits waiting for response. I thought I saw a setting at some point about Siri and something regarding the lock screen or working with the phone screen locked, but have not been able to find that. I actually have just started saying hey Siri to my phone or watch, and it seems to be more effective than using the wheel button.
  3. So I did a full factory reset and restore on my iPhone X, re-paired the truck to Bluetooth, and enabled all of the access features in Bluetooth for the truck. Now when I do my long press to make a call, it kicks on like it normally would to wait for me to say a command, then immediately cuts back off like it didn’t hear me say anything. I’m talking like maybe a second or so. I tried to blurt out a command as fast as I could haha couldn’t even finish talking before it cuts back off. My wife has both a work and a personal phone, I’m going to try and pair both of those this weekend to narrow down if it’s the truck or my phone. Siri works flawless on the phone whether locked or unlocked, anywhere but when connected in the truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone had this issue? I'm in a 2015.5 Sierra. I always long hold the steering wheel button, then say "call" and the contact name on iphone. This is the way I've used the hands free with an iphone since 2014. The last 2-3 weeks when I try to place a call it goes through a sequence along these lines: Initial command to place the call, wait a few seconds and siri will first say to hang on; wait a few more seconds then I get siri saying "just another moment"; I continue to wait, then I get "this is taking longer than expected"; wait a little while longer, then something like "I'm having problems placing the call" and it fails. It's acting like it would if I'm trying to make a call out in the middle of the woods with little to no service, yet I'm trying to place these calls in the middle of town or at my house with full service. Had the issue prior to checking for and installing the latest iOS update, problem still exists after updating iphone to latest iOS. I've not had any changes to the truck or the phone I use beyond updating the software as mentioned. I've tried changing the language settings mentioned in another thread with no luck. I've tried while driving and while parked and at several locations. I've removed phone and re-synced it to the truck. I've tried while plugged in to usb and wireless. Phone works fine making calls with siri when not connected to the truck. Any other suggestions?
  5. Just another thought on an old thread. My basic plan finally expires this December, I've been enrolled with State Farm for the drive safe discount for a year or so. State Farm uses onstar for the driving habits etc.. After looking online, the smart driver feature of onstar I believe is what links with my insurance. At the current rates for the plans, I think I will save money in the long run just deactivating the discount and leaving onstar off! I am going to contact the local SF office to see if I can get the free dongle/tracker deal to put in the glovebox. That is what I was told I would receive originally, but it never came in the mail. I finally called and asked about not receiving one, and was informed I didn't need one that they used onstar from the truck.
  6. If you’re familiar with the condenser thread, then surely you’ve read of plenty of people replacing the condenser multiple times by now in the 2014+. Some installed themselves others had the dealer do it. Have you called the dealer that installed to see if there’s a warranty? That would be my first course of action. If I didn’t have an extended warranty, I would go an aftermarket part route as the gm parts seem to just have a big shiny silver band aid on the problem area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Bringing this back from the dead. I'm in a 2015 SLT, I've recently noticed the bottom of the seat has a hump in it as best I can describe the feeling, no not lumbar support, the seat itself where you place your buns has a hump. It's toward the rear bottom, feels like there's a peak dead center just before the bottom meets the seat back. They are heated/cooled seats, I get in them a lot pretty damp from the river. Not sure if water/moisture would cause something under there to warp or dis-form, but it's pretty damn uncomfortable. Never had this issue until maybe a month ago, I'm the only owner of the vehicle. Thought about adding a gel pad, would this mute the heated/vented option? Would heat melt the gel? Is there a fix I've overlooked somewhere? Edit, I'm 5'8 165lb for reference.
  8. What’s the turnaround time on getting the xpel applied? Does it have a lifespan? I’m going to be doing paint correction on the whole truck soon, and I’m looking for some better protection out in the woods so I don’t have to go through this dance again anytime soon. It’s a new realm for me, I’ve seen ceramic coating thrown around a lot too. Seems both have advantages and disadvantages. Any insights are welcomed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Paracord, fishing line and random lures bc you just never know when they’re biting, pocket knife(s), goretex jacket, first aid/safety bag, flashlight, jumper cables, phone charger, wool socks, khukuri, backup battery for charging, collapsible dog bowl, tow strap, lotion/hair bands/hand sanitizer/stray hair/whatever else my wife “forgets”, lighter and matches, water bottle, gorilla tape, bug dope, and a couple ratchet straps. Those are stowed in the center console area, behind the front seats and center console, or tucked under the back seat on the floor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Glad you got straightened out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So a Sierra Denali doesn’t come with a Denali cluster? I promise you I’m not trying to be a prick here, just confused lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Best budget move would be add new tires to your current wheels. Once those tires need replaced, you’ll have had plenty of time to decide if you want/need to keep 20s or go down. If you don’t go with an LT tire, you’ll be under 1k with 275/60. I went with non LT duratracs in 275-60 this go around, they’ve been fine for my needs the last year or so I’ve ran them. I’ve had no problems anyplace I had been with LT k02 in the same size, and I feel the Goodyear’s do better in the snow too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So you got a cluster pulled from a Yukon Denali, and this one is from a Sierra Denali, seems simple enough to draw a conclusion on? Am I missing something? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My best friend installed some made by clazzio in his Tacoma. I’d never be able to tell they are covers without someone telling me, look great. I think he said he went with them instead of katzkin as he could install them in his own fairly easy, and the katzkin he would have had to hire someone. Worth a look to me!

  15. I don’t know if you got fixed up OP, but my bet would be the posts are off as well. I did the add 1.5 hp mod to my tailgate in my 15 when I backed into a tree in the woods with the tailgate down. Dealer fixed it, but the posts, well neither one of us has got them right to this day. I just got used to trying to break the handle off to open the tailgate, it’s like an extra layer of security lol.
