Took my '15 (2WD) up there, no problems, but then there wasn't any snow/ice. The last time that I went up to Big Bear, with snow, they wouldn't even let 4x4s up there without chains/cables. Still have my cables from that trip, was for my '10 Ridgeline, which was before my '15 Silverado LTZ Z71, now I have a '18 Silverado LTZ Z71. Haven't been up there since about a year before my wreck ('15). Maybe one of these weekends, I'll take the wife and kids up for Alpine Slides.
I used Amazon, to save me a 80 mile round trip. Most definitely make sure that it’s 23285090. Worth the $52 I spent, far less than the cost of the item, and two round trips to the dealership (one to order and the other to pick it up). https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-GM-Molding-Pkg-Part/dp/B00TA7UUM2?keywords=23285090&qid=1547714442&sr=8-1&ref=sr_1_1
Swapped out the drivers A-frame cover for a Driver's Assist Handle, last Sunday. $52 for the part thru Amazon Prime, and about 30 minutes total to remove the original cover and install the handle. The close up of the upper end, was cause some of the guys were complaining that it didn't lineup. Once I got the leash from the original cover tucked away, it mated up flush.
Sunday Night in the sprinkles...... Caught myself a couple times still using the steering wheel to pull myself up into the truck. Only took me about 10 minutes to complete this mod, I had started it the week before, and realized that I had the wrong color, when I pulled it out of the box. (was ordered thru Amazon)

Monday, I replaced the standard bulbs in my reverse, cargo, and high mount brake lights. I installed RED LED bulb in the high mount, and white LED bulbs in the cargo/reverse spots. I then went to install the Driver’s Assist Handle, but they had shipped me the wrong color (tan). So, I returned the wrong one, and ordered the correct one (grey). I threw it all back together, without reconnecting the lanyard to the cover, made it quick/easier to swap them out tonight. The correct one came in Friday, as I was heading off to work. This evening, I swapped out the original part for the handle. D1174A23-1AEA-4945-9BFE-F67D6DABA101.MOV
Where do you usually go "sailing" at? I've gone with a few groups from Edwards AFB out to El Mirage Dry Lake. They've recently (last few years) started using Roger's Dry Lake (on Edwards AFB) to do their land-sailing, I haven't been out there since they switched, especially since my accident, back in July.
UPDATE: IDIOT had his arraignment on 12/11/18, and pleaded "NOT GUILTY." REALLY?!!!! On 12/21/18, my wife got a copy of the accident report. It stated that CHP was actively looking for IDIOT's car, and wondered if he frequented TWS, where the crash happened, so a patrol officer sat in the dirt patch that I thought about ducking into, and sure enough, he rolled through there. CHP lite him up, pulled him over, and cited him for not having a front tag on the vehicle, "fix-it-ticket." While the officer was writing him up, he noticed that IDIOT still had the dealership streamer hanging on the keys. They still did NOT have enough to go on, so they let him continue on his way. From there, they pursued him as the Hit/Run suspect. On 1/8/19, we went to IDIOT's Pre-Preliminary Hearing. DA asked to postpone, "a continuance," it because CHP didn't deliver their photos until the day before, and the judge and DA are good friends. Wife and I sat in the back corner of the courtroom, when the DA walked in, she advised the court that 12 (TWELVE) of the deceased driver's family were there. When IDIOT was dismissed and left the courtroom, ALL 14 of us stood up. Out in the hallway, my wife and I introduced ourselves to the DA, and I made sure that IDIOT could hear me, as I introduced myself. "Joey's" family was glad that we were there, and we talked with them for a good 30 minutes, 20 of that was my wife and Joey's mom talking/crying. Hoping that Joey's mom got some closure from talking with my wife.
Ravenkeeper replied to Ravenkeeper's topic in For Sale/WantedThanks, but I'm looking for something a little closer to home.
Dude, this borderlines on not funny, since I was in a head-on collision, back in July, and the guy, that hit me, died on impact. It's also bad enough that my wife and kids swear that our NEW house (moved in the week prior to the collision) is haunted.
With the headlights in AUTO (when it's dark out), push your turn signal forward (to lock on the HIGHs), and then instantly pull it back to its neutral state. This will turn them ON/OFF. OH, and they do NOT work if the fogs are on, with LOWs.
