  1. Tempted to try 20° on the side. But not sure if the truck will stay up haha. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Tapatalk
  2. From the steering wheel. Left arrow, down to settings, enter, scroll and find information pages, (one of three options) right arrow. Scroll down to find "off road" mine is right near the bottom on my '15 with the max tow package. No Z71 or off-road package of ant sort on this truck. Check the box and back out of the setting and go back to the main info page and scroll down u til you find it. Have fun. !! Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  3. I really like the black Mirrors, on that truck, I find the color matched caps can look out of place on the bright colored trucks at times. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  4. I jumped in in the 3rd group buy, received my lights 3pm today, likely would have been Friday but its was long weekend. Anyways, they are in and thanks to a few helpful pointers from this thread it took me about an hour 15 minutes to get them in. Still the middle of the day but they definitely light up the shop better than any of the other lights I've had in there. Worst being the Diode Dynamics, then stock, then Putco's blue Halogen bulb. These give me hope LED lighting may be able to tangle with HID's at some point. Headlights are 4500k DS2 and the fogs I believe are 5500k. I'm still not sure why LED's only come 5-6000k for automotive. Anyways this is the best "color" difference I could capture with the phone camera. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for posting this. I stuck my head under the bumper this morning to plan my attack on the fog lights housings as I wasn't the least bit interested in taking off the bumper. That's the plan I came up with and I was glad to read someone else had succeeded with this route. The T15 Torx screws in the fender liner make everything easy peasy, just really pay attention to the way the whole assembly comes/falls out from that spot. I fought with the passenger side for 15 minutes getting it in there. Gave up and took out the drivers side paying more attention this time. Once I had the drivers side out I was able to wiggle the passenger side in within a matter of 30 seconds. That fog light housing though.... jeesh someone spent way to much time on making that thing so damn complicated. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  6. It definitely should work, it did in my truck very well when it was active. Most of the time in low reception areas where my phone was having trouble I could connect to the Wi-Fi and all data related functions worked perfectly. This is in Saskatchewan and Alberta. What I don't know is if there is any roaming nonsense on GM's side. Ohhh and just because there is a small town there doesn't mean there is cell service to begin with. Haha.

  7. Yeah it was a fun climb, had to do it twice...Cut off 5 miles worth of driving around that valley to get back to the road as well. That shot there is from the West Side of Redburry Lake in Saskatchewan after climbing out of said coulee/valley. I believe we filled two doe tags that morning in our group. Didn't get our bucks for a week later in Rifle season. Not anything spectacular but he sure filled up the deep freeze Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  8. Hahaha. I'll play, put mine to use during hunting season last fall. That put the Duratracs to the test. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  9. I've noticed this as well with my truck both before the Blackbear tune and after. However, when I switch the units over to "US" the indicated speed on the needle and the digital read out are bang on in MPH. Switch back to metric and the needle will read a touch higher. Going back a few years to my VW, I recall reading that there was some legislation that stated a speedometer had to read/indicate that the vehicle was travelling just slightly faster than it was to avoid speeding ticket issues. In Canada on single lane highways a lot of people set their cruise at 110 when the speed limit is 100. When traffic cops are running radar that keeps most people under the 10 km/h grace window with most vehicles travelling around 108/109. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk

  11. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    If you want your steering wheel to be straight and not wear out your tires in a couple hundred miles, yes you need an alignment, with any leveling kit. I can't believe this question still gets asked. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  12. They've been like that since the 1996 Silverado I had. I think my 05 was the most square shaped out of the bunch Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk

    Found a summit white crew cab standard LT today. Was looking for this exact truck in a 15 a month ago and they couldn't find one. I don't think the prices have jumped all that much. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk

    Yeah, the GM tailights are a little to busy for my liking, I was half tempted to try and take a tailight out to see what was in there for hookups.....After seeing both the Sierra and Silverado in person, I'm willing to bet the Sierra will have the better headlights now, that lense in the LTZ is quite small.
