  1. Save yourself lots of headaches, go to the dealer and order one like newdude. If they have to program it, then the dealer will charge at their hourly rate. I would never trust anyone to cut one for me. But normally dealers don't like to program a third or fourth key. Now if your truck has a questionable VIN, the you have no choice eBay or Amazon. Make sure you don't blow any of the body controllers, because they have to be programmed to your VIN. I can go on and on with different scenarios, but you get the idea.
  2. Say goodbye to scratches and chips. I powdercoated mine, i bought them used, they were chromed, i had them coated semi dull black. I've never liked them shiny. It was about $30 dollars. the rubber/plastic i took off by pushing the clips from the bottom. your should have access holes, look at them fro the bottom. I've powdercoated my wheels for SEMA feature vehicles. Only problem was putting your car/truck on jack stands, and have the tires dismounted. Then have my painter draw a color line at the flat part next to the tires. Mine has a hub welded to jackstands, mount the tire and spin It as he paintstripped it, while turning. Any of you go to Sema.org and search under SEMA featured vehicles and search for lovecars.com. That website I used for sales. Now I use lovecars.co only for my email address. Maybe one day when I get off my a** and put up a real website. Stay safe you guys.
  3. The autodimming mirror is available on ebay, you can buy any mirror that looks like it, as far as the buttons on it. I bought mine that looks exactly like the one I took off. It was a take off form some kind of buick. There is no wiring on the truck for it. On the ones before I think 2014 and older they have all the wiring needed. I went to upfitters website for GMupfitter.com to get the schematics, the connector part numbers are listed Everything you will need, the connector pins and wiring, etc are available from WaytekWire.com‎ No programming needed.
  4. No performance mods. This is Kalifornia. They just approved the GM cold air kit but not their competition. I did install a K&N filter and i ordered with performance rear end gears. It burns rubber off the line, till the Nanny stops the fun. But there's no way I can put a programmer or anything like that.. Don't get me going.
  5. Sorry guys, long post. Haven't been around much lately, with engineering new equipment for mostly garment manufacturers, travelling all over, working 18 hour days. Now I'm retired. Thank God For those that don't know me, you are lucky? I've always modified my cars and trucks. My son and I built many cars and trucks that have been featured vehicles at SEMA. Some sponsored by GM an Avalanche. Some from Ford, An F250 Lifted. Both of those ended up in front pages of magazines. My son decided to get a real job, and I didn't want to continue by myself, the reason I was doing it so my son could learn mechanical electrical stuff. Since he always also modified cars, vans, mini trucks, etc. And wanted to learn from the biggest hacker in the world. This is my current truck and more likely my last, so I'm enjoying to the fullest. Her it goes.. It' a 2017 LT Graphite. Mesh grille black powder coating by Grillcraft 2" front lift to level it. (for those complaining about the pogo stick rear end when going through bumps or whoops, this will fix it.) Homelink from Mito (programable garage door opener) always on.. I hope no one breaks into my truck and gets in the garage and tries to rob old rusted bicyles, dog food, cat food, I forgot my 2002 Corvette Z06 with 30,000 miles. And my Carbonfiber Trek. ls forgot my pitbull that lives in the garage when we are not home. Auto dimming rearview mirror from eBay Auto dimming left side mirror glass with signals, right side mirror glass with signals out of an LTZ from Craigslist and a shifty individual. Left A pillar assist handle from GM 5 2018 Nissan Titan SD Diesel 18" wheels and off road tires from Bulletproof Suspensions in Mentone, CA. 1-1/2" hub centric and wheel centric spacers from Four Wheel Parts in Riverside, CA. Cargo Bed with LED lights GM from eBay Added 6 round eye load tie downs GM from eBay Wired a second 5 lead trailer plug hidden behind rear bumper to install 60" brake, turn signal and reverse lights from eBay. (dont buy them from an auto parts store, I bought mine for $21 on eBay) Black grille bowtie from GM - all other emblems shaved. 2 extra horns same as what the truck came with from eBay. Chevy center caps shaved off in the back and glued them to the old Nissan ones. People ask me if they are from the 2020 HD trucks. LOL I had them before GM I did all the installs, including wiring like GM would put. - All emblem removal by yours truly. 1. In the works... Katskin leather seating. 2. Replace all the POS speakers, one blown already. 3. Wire my Radar Detector Questions? PM Ernie previously lovecars.com now lovecars.co
  6. What do you think the shipping would be to Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91701 The photos don't show, save them as JPG. right now they are trying to point to a directory in my computer. thanks Ernie
  7. Use the trailer wiring, if you don't have a trailer plug, then look around the main harness under the hood, normally driver side of the truck. and that is better because trailer wiring doesn't get electrical from the computer,if you can find the bundle of wires the look under dash driver side, i the harness is not there either look under the bed at the back of the truck. I reminder.. the harness is a bundle folded together about 9" long. Now the final place... the wiring will come in a bag when the first owner bought it. Desperate measures buy a trailer brake module, even if it doesn't work, all you need i the harness and the plug, make sure you test the wiring because one of them is connected to the battery feed. Then you will have turn signal wires, brake lights and running lights. Sorry for the lengthy reply, I tend to do that...
  8. How about powder coating, not expensive and very durable.
  9. My 2018 Silverado 2WD had terrible bump handling, when I put in my 2.5" lift to level it, that problem went away. now you can go over bumps with out slowing, as a matter of fact you can actually go faster. off road the bucking action stopped.
  10. Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) *** I choose accessories in this order 1.look 2.quality 3.price 4.reviews. Reason is, when I buy truck I first figure out the use, is this one going to be my hauler, or my executive show truck, lifted crazy or moderate, do the accessories fit well on the truck, does it take away from the truck look, does it overpower the overall look I'm trying to achieve. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) .... Hell No. Unless you're selling the truck soon, then try to sell it away from where you live. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all?.... same answer as 2. Truck people can see a poser a mile away, and you will get no respect. Now... If you don't care people talking about you the moment you walk away... The go ahead and put shit on your truck so it looks like a.movie truck. Nothing works out looks good
  11. What does it mean when the sun goes down? ON WHAT?
