  1. The harness that came with the lights is just a red and black on the relay, and an on/off button. I was wiring 12v at the lights to + on harness, and ground to - on harness. I know nothing about relays/triggers.
  2. sorry for the dumb question. Are you saying to run all the way to the button in the cab? Or connect the 4pin relay to the cargo light + wire, then pull hot and ground from the trailer light cluster?
  3. Just installed an aftermarket rear bumper, came with some LED cubes. I figured I would run the wiring up to the lights in the bed. It’s a short run, and would be able to turn on with the factory cargo light button (I did the same thing for my led fog lights on the front bumper, just use factory fog light button). For some reason this will not work now. Push the button, and the lights flash 3 times and won’t come back on until I reset the button. Tried with a relay (came with lights), tried without, tried a different ground…nothing will work. Any ideas out there? Other than “run it to battery”. thanks in advance
  4. I’ve had mine installed for 7 months today, and about 12,000 miles. Nothing crazy wrong. Ride is definitely stiffer, but that’s to be expected. I’m also running the RC 2” spacers, so I know I’m putting stress on stuff all over the front end. It hasn’t given me any issues yet. I’ll be interested what happens in another 10-15k miles when it’s time for tires.
  5. 2021 5.3 RST - 15,300 miles, Just had the dreaded lifter issue. Happened on saturday, was able to limp the truck home because no service departments were open. Chugged it to the dealer this morning blowing smoke everywhere. Dropped it off at 7:50am, and picked it up same day at 5:30pm. Can't say enough good stuff about Supreme Chevy in Gonzales. Now i'm concerned about the driver side going out. Looking at the Range Technology module that will disable the DFM, don't really care about the mileage, just don't want to get stranded.
  6. no, not mud flaps on the back, the little things on the front of the wheel well. "air diverter"
  7. sorry to resurrect a dead thread. just got a 21 silverado. how did these plugs hold up long term? i see the sharp truck ones say they don't work on the back, and another thread said they were too short for the back. Wondering if they fell out over time or anything wonky. thanks!
  8. Got the second one in. Definitely adds to the system. Still not the 12 I was used to in my last truck, but I just need to realize with where I want these speakers placed, this is what I have! Thanks again for all the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the response. I thought with this screen we could BT somehow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks for the response! I've done some more research on my equipment. The speaker is DVC wired in the box to 4ohm. I also dig deeper into reviews of my amp where people with more equipment and knowledge than me tested the amp and got about 120 watts out of it. So with all that. I should be able to lower the output on my amp (tune well) and "daisy chain" 2 Identical speakers. This would keep the amp 4 ohm to match the speakers and not over power them. The second sub will be in tomorrow, so we'll see!!! Amp: BOSS Audio AR1500M Armor 1500 Watt, 2/4 Ohm Stable Class A/B, Monoblock, Mosfet Car Amplifier Speakers: Pioneer TS-SWX2002 8" Shallow-Mount Pre-Loaded Enclosure I know it's not a killer system. But it's affordable and with one speaker it is about the bass of the bose system. 2 should be all I can handle. I have one in the center console now, and will put the second under the back seat. Thanks again to everyone that helped! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks. I think that's where I screwed up with this. RMS of the amp is 563w at 4ohm. 1125w @ 2ohm. Speaker is only listed as 4ohm, now rms listed, but nominal is only 150w. Guess I'm grossly over powered. I just read 600w speaker and amp had 563w rms. Keep in mind these pioneers come in a sealed box, and they are very tight. So I don't want to risk losing the seal by popping the speaker out to check the coils. Especially if I am about to return it because it's just too weak to handle the amp. My whole goal of the thread was to see if even hooking a second identical speaker to the amp was possible without damage. Thanks for all the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have the 2.5 RC lift/level. I figured it was my trail grapplers and 20's that gave the rough ride. Makes me want to get a legit 4" lift more now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Before I got my set I used some plastic spackle/drywall tools. They would break a lot, but never scratched anything. Just a thought if you are having trouble finding them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. They are the cheap pioneer down fires. I would assume they are SVC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So the speaker I have and the one I want to add are both 4 ohm, 600w max. I'm just trying to not blow them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
