  1. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra. 60,000 KM. It's never been in an accident. I've noticed that the rear tires on the passenger side stick-out further than on the driver's side - substantially ~0.75". Measurements off the frame confirm this. I've noticed this before, but I just put-on some BFG KO2s and it's definitely more pronounced. This can't be normal is it? So many idiosyncrasies with these trucks ... like the cock-eyed steering wheel. Thoughts? Thank you!
  2. Hint: Only the United States, Myanmar, and Liberia use the Imperial System. I'm in Canada 24 deg C or 75 F.
  3. Haha - yes super strange. Why would the software even let you do this ... it looks like $hit.
  4. Thanks Thereed! That worked. So strange that GM would even allow you to do that as it looks like $hit and serves no purpose. Regardless, I appreciate your help all fixed.
  5. Issue Solved. Hi Everyone, Has anyone ever seen this happen on their truck? I'm not a huge fan of the Intellilink system. It reminds me of using computers in 1989: it's frustratingly slow (5-7 secs to change songs when connected to an iPhone), inconsistent performance, the user interface is ugly/dated, and the huge screen really tells me nothing. My 2015 has 43,000 km on it and tonight the radio screen decided to do this. Seems to be the only screen (i.e. other screens/menus not affected). I started the vehicle 3 separate times and it did the same thing each time however on one occasion it went black on start-up, but eventually (after 3-4 minutes) decided to boot-up. I will disconnect the negative terminal and see if it resets. As my first domestic vehicle/GM product I have to say I love the truck, but as a company they cut corners and struggle with the details (the devil is in the details). The intellilink system in the 2014/2015s sucks - they must have known this in the lab - there's no need for this in today's world.
  6. Just thought I'd revive an old thread here. Is there anyway of knowing what software/firmware version your truck's infotainment system (i.e. Intellilink) has? Additionally, is there anyway of knowing what the current software/firmware version is? The intellilink on my 2015 is so SLOW. This is unacceptable in this day and age. With an iPhone 6S attached via BT or cable the delay between song changes is about 7 seconds - it's like using a cassette player in 1987. It's not like the iPhone is a rare phone, it's the most popular phone on earth. If I try to skip through a few songs (i.e. hit the FF button a few times), the whole system just shuts down and it could be 10 minutes before the music starts playing again ... if it does. Ridiculous. I'm sure others have experienced this - did you find a solution? The head unit/intellilink is really my only complaint about the truck, besides the two candles I have for headlights. Given the distinct advantages of computers and software (i.e. ease of updating), it's *extremely* frustrating that GM doesn't regularly update the vehicle software. Imagine if our cell phones and computers were never updated. Allowing customers to put the latest and greatest software/firmware on their existing vehicle (within a reasonable lifespan) would be a huge advantage of buying a GM product. I'm certainly not going to drop another $60K just to get Apple CarPlay or a more responsive head unit - so that's failed marketing logic. Honestly, at this point, I'd prefer a basic head unit as I see no advantage to having this large screen which really doesn't do anything useful (I do not have navigation) and is frustratingly SLOW.
  7. Just remember this little diagram, which I found later.
  8. I had installed them quickly, then went back and did just that - hilarious. What an amateur! Thanks for your reply. Big difference in light output. Now I want to swap-out taillights/brake lights.
  9. Just installed these Philips 921 LED reverse lamps and neither one works!? I pushed them all the way until they seated properly. Anyone have any ideas? Solved. Works just fine. Just the installer (me) doesn't work properly.
  10. Just to update everyone on this. I live in a rural area and just got into a dealer yesterday to have a couple of recalls addressed. They replaced the seat cover without incident. So, worth a try if you have a tear forming in your seat.
  11. I had Rancho's up front and just replaced them with Bilstein 5100's on the max setting. I found the Rancho's fine, but off road they took a long time to settle (i.e. bouncy). The Bilsteins are definitely stiffer, but in a good way b/c they settle quickly. I'm quite happy with them, I just need to swap-out the back.
  12. Hey guys, Like many of you, I'm moving to larger tires. I'm getting some winter tires installed next week (275/70/R18 - 33.2"- studded, Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 ). Based on everything I've read on this forum, I was going to go with the Bilstein 5100s to level my 2015 GMC 1500 (crew cab V8). 4Wheel Parts has the 5100 on backorder so they're pushing me towards the Pro Comp Pro Runner shock. Anyone have experience with these? There's not a whole lot of info on here about them. Thank you!
  13. Same thing happened to me last year. I stopped at a traffic light and the crack formed before my eyes (from left edge to right edge). I just paid the $200 deductible and got another OEM windshield. At the time, my truck at about 5000 km on it.
  14. Just washed my truck today and noticed there's a lot of chipping behind the rear wheel. What mud flaps or rock guards to people recommend for those of us that need a bit more protection from rock chips. I was looking at the WeatherTech mud flaps - no drill ... seems like easy assembly.
  15. Didn't know that Fluid Film will soften the wax. That said, it's not petroleum based and therefore is safe to use around rubber and plastics. It's great for places you can't reach like inside the frame, inside doors, etc. I find the wax chips easily ... probably even more so in winter.
