  1. Welcome to the forum! I installed the Blackvue 2 channel. I ran the cable along the drivers side pillar area back, removing the trim along the way. Here are a couple of videos. Didn't watch them so not sure of quality/method they used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8haA6oYWqHg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENXYDin1170 On the below video, he pulls the window trim to reveal the headliner. That is how I did it. Not too bad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_06xa7D1YXA Hope that helps, -S
  2. For sale kicker Vss full setup

    How much for the kicker stuff? Interested. Pics? Thanks, -S
  3. Front/Rear Dash Cam

    I am running the BlackVue 2 channel camera. Mine is the 650, which is now the 750. I purchased it form the Dash Cam store local to me. The BlackVue has its pros and cons but I am happy with it. Here is a link: http://www.thedashcamstore.com/blackvue-dr750s-2ch-1080p-dual-lens-dashcam-install-bundle/ Let me know if you need any help with the install. Took me about a day taking my time to make it look good. HTH, -S
  4. My camera comes on with my cargo light now that I bridged the power between the cargo and reverse lights. Probably won't help because the cargo turns off when in gear, but thought it was interesting. -S
  5. FS: 2017 Silverado 1500 HID OEM Headlights

    LTZ also has the LED turn signal.
  6. Denali cluster in SLT

    The cluster that was compatible with my 2017 Sierra SLT 6.2 Z71 was 84166517. It was out of a Yukon Denali XL. The part numbers are crazy on these things... Here is a pic of the back of the cluster: Chris was awesome and I am so glad he provides this service! -S
  7. Denali cluster in SLT

    Saw this Denali cluster on Ebay. GM Part #84201626 Best I can tell it is for a 2017, but you will need to research the part number and determine if it is for your year truck. The auction title IS INCORRECT when it lists it as 2014, 2015, 2016. They are year specific. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-2015-2016-GMC-Denali-HUD-Speedometer-Instrument-Gauge-Cluster-84201626/173006369610?hash=item2847fbb34a:g:fDEAAOSwySVaHxsp&vxp=mtr Hope it helps someone, -S
  8. Surprised they are not totaling it. I think they probably would in TX. I had a 2014 Silverado LTZ Z71 2WD 5.3 that was totaled after it rolled. I now drive a 2017 Sierra SLT Z71 4WD 6.2 witht the Denali cluster installed. Only thing I am missing from the Denali now is the badges, LED lights and Magnetic shocks. (wish I had the lights as I like the full LED turn signals) For me it was the 6.2 engine and 4WD. The 6.2 was my must have option. I lost the lane departure/vibrating seats option from my 2017 (it was a 2LZ?) I give enormous credit to the 2014 for protecting my life and my sons. We both walked away from a substantial accident. (photo attached) It was a great truck. HTH, -S
  9. Wireless charging

    Just sharing what I found looking around. Working in IT, I am use to standards and rely on them regularly. It's odd the GM vehicles (2016-2017) state they are Qi compatible, and the iPhone 8/X states it is Qi compatible, yet they do not work together. Which one is not adhering to the standard, assuming they were both under the Qi specification 1.X.X I know they phone is newer vs. the truck, but standards are designed to clear this stuff up. Reading the article below from the Wireless Power Consortium (the folks who created the Qi standard), it sounds like newer Qi versions should be backwards compatible, implying newer devices should work on older chargers. (if I am reading and understanding it correctly) Pulled the text below about the Qi specifications from the following page: https://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.com/developers/specification.html Couldn't find a older listing for GM but this may be the Qi charging unit in the 2018's? https://www.wirelesspowerconsortium.com/products/details/1801/wireless-charging-transmitter A brief history of the Qi specification Qi specifications are numbered with three digits: X.Y.Z. For example 1.0.3 X is called the major revision number. Specifications with the same major revision number are backward and forward compatible. Y is called the minor revision number. A change in minor revision number implies that new requirements are introduced while maintaining backward compatibility previously certified products Z is called the editorial revision number. Editorial revisions include clarifications, integrate new transmitter designs into one document, and may add new test to the test specifications. CURRENT VERSION OF THE QI SPECIFICATION The current version of the Qi specification has version number 1.2.3. The Qi specification that is available for public download has version 1.2.2. Version 1.2.3 is available only to members of the Wireless Power Consortium. It will be made available for public download later in 2017. HISTORY OF THE QI SPECIFICATION Version 1.0 Qi transmitter delivers 5 Watt power into a Qi phone. Choice of transmitter designs include single coil transmitter, coil array transmitter, and moving coil transmitter. High flexibility in design of Qi receivers Limited flexibility in the design of Qi transmitters Version 1.1 Increased design freedom for transmitters. You can now choose between 12 different transmitter specifications. Increased sensitivity of "Foreign Object Detection". This prevents heating of metal objects in the neighborhood of an active transmitter. The possibility to power a Qi transmitter with a USB charger. Version 1.2 Fast charging. The possibility for transmitters to deliver up to 15 Watt power and the option for receivers to obtain up to 15 Watt. An improved thermal test for transmitters Improved timing requirements Changed limits for Foreign Object Detection improve the sensitivity. Optional unique identifier for power receivers (WP-ID)
  10. Wireless charging

    Would you not take the 2018 connector off the module you purchase and put the connector from your original module on it? Another solution was mentioned in a thread where folks were replacing the mat with a 3 coil pad but can't find the thread anymore. Maybe it got deleted for some reason... -S
  11. I do not know about the company you mentioned, so I can't help there. Sorry. But you revived 2 old threads for the same question. One was probably enough... Thanks and good luck, -S
  12. Gauge Pod?

    I thought there was one listed in the for sale section a little while back as well. -S
  13. You can also convert your discs to digital with VUDU. You have to pay a small fee, but then you could use tablets. The discs are a dying technology anyway. Soon they will seem like CD's, VHS, cassette taps or 8 track. https://www.vudu.com/in_mobile_disc_to_digital.html I have not used this service, but noticed they now have an app to convert, so I may try it. Before you had to go to Walmart I think to convert discs. Hope that helps, -S
  14. I've read a few threads on here. I would look them over. Here's a quick search that should get you going: http:// http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/156795-gun-holster-mount/?tab=comments#comment-1395036 http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/199188-where-do-you-keep-you-gun-while-driving/?tab=comments#comment-1958449 http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/201798-what-holster-are-you-using/?tab=comments#comment-1992006 http:// http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/195179-gun-mount-in-truck/?tab=comments#comment-1909258 http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/196539-handgun-holder/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-1925010 HTH, -S
