Josh_perry24 replied to willyr1er's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingI know this is an old post, but I was wondering if you (or any of the other guys) had an update as to the status of your leaf spring noise. Still no clunking or creaking with the new springs?
Josh_perry24 replied to BlkSS's topic in For Sale/WantedI wish it was just the front row for a standard cab. Haha.
Josh_perry24 replied to jogutier's topic in For Sale/WantedWhat would be the selling price of just the trim?
I am fairly certain that the hoods are completely different. You'd probably be better off grabbing another stock Yukon hood and do custom work on that to add the vent (whether the OE HD truck vent or an aftermarket).
To summarize, I ran the harness through the rubber grommet under the driver's side floorboard. I ended up not using any T-taps (for some reason MVI did not include them even though I was under the impression they would. That's okay though as I am not a huge fan of the scotch lock-type connectors). I hard-wired the power connections to both pin 5 on the BCM green plug and pin 26 on the BCM brown plug. For the ground connection, I left the terminal connector installed but did not drill a new hole (I'm anti hole drilling as much as possible with my vehicles). There was a large 13 mm bolt with a washer attaching a major piece of the dashboard's underlying metal frame. This bolt was located up and to the left of the parking brake pedal on the driver's side lower pillar. I basically stuck the ground terminal under that large bolt/washer combo and re-tightened the bolt. Worked like a charm, was near the BCM so that I didn't have to modify the MVI harness, and didn't require any drilling! From there, I used a piece of stout copper wire to route the RCA video cable through the bottom front of the dashboard and keep it out of sight. The HMI connection was pretty simple since that piece was a truly plug-n-play T harness that provided an RCA connector for the video feed. I then ran the harness all the way back, following the large OEM wire loom and keeping the harness fairly out of sight. I went up and over the frame at the back. At this point, I had around 4 feet of extra harness I didn't need. MVI makes the harnesses long enough to work with any truck configuration, so it is theoretically long enough for a crew cab long wheelbase (I think). I had to wrap a decent amount of the cable up with a zip tie and I place it inside the frame rail out of sight and secured it with zip ties as I did with the harness the entire way back. The harness was run above the rear secondary BCM and I routed the plug to be very near the junction block where the camera would typically plug in. Boom. It works like a charm. My only "complaint" is that I feel as though the video quality is slightly degraded. My father's 2015 crew cab came with a back-up camera and I06 stereo from the factory. His back up camera image appears to be a little more clear. We have identical cameras, as I used the part number from his camera to order mine originally. I think any degradation in video signal is from unshielded cables being run alongside various other electrical cables. In my case, I'm afraid that being near my amplifier power line (See above pic of harness near pedals. That's where my 4 ga. amplifier power is run through the firewall) may be the cause of the problem. However, the difference is relatively minimal and it is still very usable. I am quite happy overall! Side note, the picture showing the camera's image has vertical lines appearing on it. The screen does not actually look that way. The vertical lines appear when I took photos of it because of the LED backlighting of the truck's display. Successful upgrade. I now have a 100% functioning 2017 HMI with Android Auto, Apple Carplay, and OEM back-up camera. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask! I am sure Jorge (Nitro) is willing to assist as well.
Just opened the box for mine and planning to install it today! Basically, it is a long harness that is able to run the length of the truck. It contains the two wires necessary for a video feed that terminates in an RCA plug. The other three lines connect to and near the BCM under the dash. They are all related to power. Two wires run power to the camera (I think one is an ignition constant hot, the other is switched on when the truck goes into reverse). The next is an isolated ground. Since we have factory cameras, the harness has an OE-style camera plug similar to that of the rear junction block that the camera would normally connect to. Edit: There is also a mini "T" harness that is placed in-line for the gray plug that goes into the HMI.
