Inspired by the others that have recently done the tranmission thermostat delete, I finally got off butt and did it to my truck. I used the Superior Solutions kit and the install went pretty straightforward. I had to improvise since I didn't have snap ring pliers but that was about the only issue. I purchased the kit at https://globaltransmissionparts.com/6l80-6l90-sure-cool-cooler-flow-system-stl010/

Great video. I have that same kit and have been planning to do this for some time. This is the best video I have seen on the install. Good work.
I haven't had a rubbing issue on the top of the rear wheels. On rare bumps it does have rubbing on the top of the front wheel wells. Part of that is my front suspension on my 2" front drop. I would have thought the same as you that with my 4" rear drop it would rub the wheel well but even with 285/45/22 wheels (stock size for my model) I don't have rubbing.
I have 1.5" spacers on my truck whihc is lowered 2"/4". I put the 1.5" on because I didn't want to trim the wheel bolts. My wheels do stick out a bit more than I would like. I have purchased 1" spacers but haven't been able to get the wheel bolts trimmed and the spacers installed. I am ruuning the stock rims in the picture. I don't have any pictures showing how much they stick out otherwise I would include them.
I while back I found the thread that showed how to upgrade puddle lights on the DL3 mirrors to the Chevy Bowtie. I always thought something like that was a cool idea. Sold on getting this done I got on Facebook Market and found a pair of the DL3 mirrors for $150. The seller ended up dropping the price to $100 since I had to drive 2 hours to meet him. The mirrors were in great shape. I used the conversion harness from Dr. Harness. The directions were great and swap went very well. I was able to get the mirror caps swapped out from the typical chrome to the glossy black that coems on the
Picked up a black LTZ grille today and plan to install tomorrow. Been looking for one of these at a reasonable price and finally found this never used one for under $200. I already had black but the honeycomb is such a pain in the a-s to clean/dry and the LTZ grilles look cooler imo.
Just checking on this mod. I have an LT and just recently upgraded my DL8 mirrors to the DL3 with the DIY kit. I have heated seats but not the adjustable pedal. I want the heated/cooled seats and have found some for sale. While I would make the time to do the conversion, I don't have the time or the wherewithal to figure it out myself. In looking at your Dr. Harness website I don't see any mention of this project other than the seat memory bypass harness. Do you have the directions and a DIY wiring kit for for this project?
Did the DL8 to DL3 swap. Got the passenger side done yesterday and the driver side tonight. Used pgamboa's DIY kit and everything worked great. Not to bad for $100 used mirrors, $65 for the DIY kit, $70 for the mirror control switch and about 5 hours of my time. All because I wanted to get the puddle light with the Chevy logo, which I have yet to buy for about another $100. Oh well, its only money.
Well I was wrong. I got the second RAS installed last night and tightened them both down. I had a vibration in the lower speeds that either got a little worse as the day went on or my patience for it got worse. When I got home from dinner tonight I took them off. I have thought about it and the top plate which was mounted on the bottom was pushed forward it because that plate only has one hole in the middle of the plate. The plate on the bottom though is supposed to be offset from the leaf spring bolt and not centered. If I can get a hole drilled in the plate in the right location I shou
