  1. You'll need harnesses more than likely, including the RZY harness. The mirrors will physically fit but depending on your Silverado, you may need more parts to get full functionality. Go to Phil's website: https://harnessdr.com @pgamboa
  2. Power folding without question. Tow mirrors stick out further by at least 2-3" on both sides if not extended. Even if it's on a rare occurrence, hitting a button to fold them in for clearance for any reason is worth it instead of having to stop and either reach all the way over or get out to fold in the passenger mirror if you don't have a passenger or rolling down the driver's window to fold in the driver's mirror. Me personally, I'd also stick with OEM as some have complained of looseness with some aftermarket mirrors and the slight movement annoys them greatly.
  3. The 2015-18 mirrors should work for your 2014 HC. For everything to work properly, you will more than likely need GM's RYZ in order to land all the lighting circuits to get all the lighting to work to spec for the tow mirrors along with new harnesses from GM or Phil since it is a 2014. Keep in mind Phil has his DYI harness as well. You will lose the auto-dimming feature as the tow mirrors don't incorporate that. @pgamboa, add/correct me if I'm wrong or missing anything.
  4. Yes, they are the same between '17 & '18. DL3 mirrors are power fold, power adjust, auto-dimming, turn signal in glass with puddle lamp. DL8 are the manual, power adjust less the other features.
  5. As Phil mentioned above, you'll have a hole in the carpet for the sub which you probably have since you have an LTZ. You could look for a floor mat to cover the hole or you can replace the front portion of the carpet with one that doesn't have the hole which is the route I'd personally take. The carpet is 2 pieces and overlaps under the front seats. It is very simple to remove/replace once the front seats and console/jump seat is out and you remove the seal plate kick panels. You may possibly have to pop loose the b-pillar trim near the floor as well but that isn't hard either.
  6. When you have intermittent issues, always take video of the issue to show the dealership and note conditions when things occur. It will help the technician out in trying to duplicate the issue(s) and a good dealership will strive for customer satisfaction and try to solve the problem instead you getting a "Could Not Duplicate/No Issue Found" response and they boot it out the door because they've seen the issue occur from your video knowing your not just blowing smoke. Doing so will also help in case the dealer still boots it and you have to get GM involved. More videos of the same issue occuring, the better. I've always done this due to working in the automotive industry. Doing so helped me get both of my DQS mirrors replaced on my 2016 right before my warranty ran out. This has also helped with goodwill scenarios as well when I or customers I've worked with had issues, the date stamp on the videos show exactly when the issue occurred and can help cover part or all of the repair even though the vehicle is out of warranty. Goodwill will depend solely on the dealership and their desire to maintain high customer satisfaction.
  7. That background pic looks badass bro

  8. https://harnessdr.com/product-category/jump-seat-to-center-console-conversion/ You may contact @pgamboa through his website (which is above) as he may have some validating to due and he's a very busy guy and get's a lot of PMs. He also may be able to get you a brand new console set up too if you haven't already bought one.
  9. I put DL3 mirrors on my 2010 LT back in the day. GM did some major changes electronically between 2009 and 2010. It required a complete rewire of my truck, with new latches (due to installing Denali door panels), door switches and custom BCM programming. I don't know exactly what it'd take but since you have an LTZ, it won't be as in-depth as I assume the body harness should be good having the needed circuits but may need new door harnesses. You'll need to land the circuits for the running lights and cargo spotlight still like the non-powerfold aftermarket mirrors require that are available. You may need to switch connector ends so the newer style mirrors match up. Possible flashing of your BCM to enable the DL3 (powerfold) option. You'll need new door switches for sure, at least the driver's. Have you searched if any one removed the DPN mirrors to install DL3 mirrors on the 900 series trucks? That'd be your best bet I assume and then look into the needed changes in order to get the DQS mirrors fully operational. I apologize I'm not much help but maybe gives you some ideas that you hadn't already thought about above.
  10. You can buy various Echomaster/Intellihaul packages. Also, vendors like MVI and possibly WAMS can help you out with adding cameras and what it would take. Custom HMI programming may be needed at times depending on the route you want to go. I personally went through MVI to add the CHMSL (3rd brake lamp) camera to my 2016 2500 that is activated by a switch. I installed the complete Intellihaul system (front, both sides and CHMSL) on my brothers 2018 3500 that he purchased through MVI at a competitive price about a year ago now. My brother loves the Intellihaul system for what it's worth. I've thought about buying Echomaster's front camera system as it would be very nice for when pulling into my garage as my sensors don't accurately pick up my mower that sits in front of my pickup but I just haven't wanted to spend the $450 for the system as that's usually the price I find for just the front. If you purchased just the front system and added the CHMSL camera, you'll probably be around $600 for it if you install it yourself.
  11. It doesn't take much to prep the OEM caps for paint as that is what I did. And for a little extra protection, I then had Xpel put on them.
  12. I highly recommend the Xpel especially if you have any color besides white or silver. Yes it is pricey but as soft as the paint is on these newer vehicles, it doesn't stand up to much as I've seen too many front ends on the K2s that the paint has "blistered" off from small rock chips so I assume the T1 would be the same. I had a black color-matched 900 series truck and it got sand blasted at a mere 4,000 miles due to a semi drifting off into the shoulder on a 2-lane road I was traveling on. My paint never "blistered" but all the white specks made me invest in the Xpel for my black K2. I've been caught behind a few semis which have pitted my windshield but all my paint still looks great. The self-healing property of the Xpel does work as I had spots visible in the film immediately after getting caught in those situations but after a couple days, they disappeared. The warranty that comes with the Xpel will replace the film if it becomes majorly damaged. I live in a rural area so the roads I regularly travel on are 2-lane and have more fine to medium gravel on them so I had Xpel installed on the full front end including the grille, lights, full front fenders, larger hood protection along with the a-pillars, roof, mirrors, and rocker panels on my 2016 Silverado at 7,800 miles. It helps hide the few blemishes that I had already obtained and my pickup looks better than my brothers white 2018 Sierra which has substantial chips. Again, it is pricey but the protection is amazing and I will do it again for my next vehicle if it has a painted bumper/front end. Also, with how much these cost nowadays, I wanted to keep mine looking as good as possible for as long as possible as I will have my K2 for the long haul which is why I also invested in paint correction and ceramic coating. Regarding the brush guard, I'm a no-go as I personally don't like them but it's your pickup.
