I installed a $20 kit from eBay. Even with the backup camera, I found the bumper corners were closer than I liked to nearby objects, and my wife is notorious for bumping into things. I like the results because it looks very stock other than not showing up on the DIC. I drilled 4 holes in the bumper (kit came with a hole saw), mounted the controller behind the tail light assembly where I could access the reverse +12v wire, and ran the speaker output along the frame and into the cabin. I mounted the little speaker behind the rear seat. I added the toggle switch for towing and a relay for ignition signal. I found I had to add that relay because the sensors were active when the vehicle exit lights were on at night, which include the reverse light. Every time I would walk behind the truck with those on it would beep at me. Fixed now.
I replaced the dash plate that had a cubbie pocket with one without it ( GMPartsDirect Part# 22830877). I cut out where the factory trailer brake controller goes (not installed on my truck) to accept the switches and trim piece from The Switch Guys at www.Otrattw.net. They have a gazillion options.
I have no tint and have the same problem. Been dealing with it for 3 years. I have Morimoto HID headlights from TRS, but that doesn't help much. The fogs help some. But I, too, would like more light; particularly right turns. The entrance to my neighborhood is slightly higher than 90deg and I'm just hoping for the best when I turn in at night. Just poking around the Internet it seems several other folks of different makes/models have gone the route of the Ford relay. Chevy supposedly has a relay used in older model Tahoes, too, but I haven't found that p/n.
I just heard this same noise on my '14 this week when it finally got below freezing going over large, sweeping bumps. I'm still within my warranty (bought the truck new in '15 and it only now has 32k miles) and am about due for an oil change. I'll do this this week while it's still cold in SC.
I have a 3-way switch on mine. In all cases, the accessory power must be on. When the rocker is in the up position, the light bar is on. When it's in the middle position, off. The bottom position is tied to the high beams. I tapped the high beam wire by the radiator to trigger 1 relay. The top position of the switch triggers a second relay.
TRS already replaced the passenger side. This is the driver's side now. I don't expect them to keep replacing relays every 2 years, but maybe the first pair was just a bad batch. They seem great about standing behind their product, though. I'm fairly certain it's not a moisture issue. My relays are mounted at the spare battery tray location. I'm thinking it may be more heat-related. I have noticed the entire engine bay gets warmer than most vehicles I've owned.
I have a '14 Sierra with the TRS Morimoto HID kit. I'm starting to have relay failures. Any ideas how to prevent these failures or a better relay than the TRS supplied units? Thanks in advance.
