  1. Just ordered the wife an Acadia Denali AWD in Black Cherry with MagneRide. Have already test driven the AWD Denali at a dealership, albeit without MagneRide. Absolutely loved pretty much every single thing about it. I have a 2015 Sierra Denali, and the new Acadia is basically a smaller version of my truck as an SUV.
  2. I have the ATAK with my 6.2, and I don't notice anything in V4 mode anymore. When I first got the truck I looked for it and didn't really notice, then after a while I did notice a bit of helicopter noise, and now I don't notice at all. I don't know if it makes a big difference that I have the active noise cancellation with my 6.2, but I can tell you that any drone or helicopter noise is very minimal and 100% a non-factor whatsoever for me. If you are looking for it and want it to bother you, it will be there. If you want to just enjoy the truck then your ears/brain will happily gloss over the minimal annoyance.
  3. Yeah you can't get them built with the truck, but it's a very simple swap to buy two OEM power folding mirrors and two door harnesses and do it yourself. Just expensive. Even if you find used mirrors you are probably looking at probably $700. The GM accessory non-powerfolding chrome tow mirrors are still gonna run you $500-$600 even if you do the labor yourself. Easy and fun project to remove the door panel, drill a hole, and replace the door wiring harness, but will take you 3-4 hours of the afternoon.
  4. I did not install them. I decided not to keep the truck, so I basically stopped modding. They are sitting in the garage now. I want a 2016 Duramax Denali, so I would like to be out of this truck by the end of the year or so. Sent from my LG-H810 using Tapatalk
  5. Many of us have done reverse lights and cargo lights with Philips 921 bulbs and they are absolutely amazing. http://smile.amazon.com/Philips-White-Vision-Back-up-light/dp/B00P2D41OQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1457887495&sr=8-1&keywords=philips+921 I was going to switch out my taillights with LEDs but after reading several threads and websites and user reviews, I decided it's not worth it. You don't gain any real additional brightness, just the instant on feature. The way the taillights are designed I guess, there isn't much difference with LEDs regarding light output and also you have to do resistors to avoid dash warning and hyperflash. License plate bulbs: http://smile.amazon.com/Philips-Bright-White-Interior-Vision/dp/B017VORB7M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1457887634&sr=8-1&keywords=philips+194 The puddle lamps in the bottom of the mirror are already LED and as white as they are going to get. I trust Philips much more than Putco. Putco is just an accessory company who makes a lot of chrome stuff and also some light bulbs. Philips is an old company and built an entire business on light bulbs of all kinds so they get my vote. I am also considering this LED tailgate light bar. It's a popular one and seems to have good reviews and works well and it's not too expensive and easy to install. http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Z8TGR4G/ref=s9_wsim_gw_g263_i1_r?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-5&pf_rd_r=0XMY45N3RDJ619K2DY7X&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2090149782&pf_rd_i=desktop
  6. New ones can be installed fairly easy if you buy the harness from what I have found. The kicker is that they are square holes, so you have to drill a small pilot hole and square it out with a file or something. Then if you use the correct harness they just come on with the foglight button. They have a foam gasket on the bottom of the housings and are not meant to use silicon, but I definitely would. This is some info someone else sent me on the 2500 forum when I asked.
  7. I meant MSRP of my truck in July 2015 was $58,040. I paid just under $47,000 for it. In showroom new condition they offered $38,000 on a trade in towards a 2016 Denali HD Duramax. We never discussed a price on the HD Denali.
  8. Must be nice. The dealer I went to in the desert in Southern California offered me $38k for my 2015 Denali that I bought in July 2015. Showroom new with low miles and I wanted to trade it in on a 2016 2500HD Duramax Denali. MSRP was $58,040.
  9. Replacing the door harness is incredibly easy. A little more expensive yes, but only about 15 minutes of work per side to actually do it once you have the door panel off. If you want a cool custom project or to save money then go ahead, but definitely don't be scared off by the door harness. It's literally just unplugging a few clips and popping retainer clips out of the hole.
  10. It looked fast, but cameras mounted to vehicles are so deceiving that it's impossible to tell real speed. It always seems like the scenery is flying by.
  11. Maybe you shouldn't be on internet forums if you are so easily upset and have such thin skin? I would say my comment, based purely on the video you posted, comparing my cover to yours was 100% relevant. Sorry if you expected every reply to be "sweet cover dude" but we occasionally have adult conversations here, meaning we discuss generally the topic at hand and add our own thoughts and experiences. And I've been a member of CF since about 2007 so I know how it is over there.
  12. Looks like you lose a lot of bed width with those giant rails on each side. I don't know if I could deal with that. I have a Fold-a-Cover G4 Elite and I like it because the rails don't take up much space.
  13. The headlamps in my 2015 Denali are just fine. I wouldn't get a 14, they only came with the 6-speed. The 15s and 16s come with 8-speeds. Also due to crappy hardware, the Intellilink is barely usable on a 2015 and even worse on a 2014. A 2016 is night and day better, I test drove one. Also you get Apple Carplay and Android Auto and nice LED headlights but a hideously stupid looking front end with an ugly new grille and foglights. The 2015 has some minor updates over the 14 and can still be had for a good price. I've only ever had trucks so I don't know if you will miss the SUV. I have a 7-year-old in a booster seat and a 3-year-old in a front facing regular carseat and there is more then enough room back there. With a carpet-like bedrug and hard tonneau (I have both) you have a really nice enclosed soft cargo area which is practically just like the Tahoe just not as tall obviously.
  14. No, the tow mirrors don't function as puddle lights. We just get the cargo lights. My guess is because when you are walking up to the truck and unlock it, those rear facing cargo lights serve virtually the same function as your reverse lights, so there was no need to activate them as puddle lights. The would only illuminate directly behind you, and then off to the side as you swing your door open. Really wouldn't be useful. Plus the first time you are getting in your truck and glance directly at the cargo LEDs... as soon as your eyes recover you will realize using them as puddle lights would be a terrible idea lol.
