  1. I have one of those with the 2.5 inch shank. It works really well for me because I have a couple trailers with different heights and it’s quick and easy to adjust. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Post #5 is before and after pics of mine Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I really like the system. I did a write-up on the Silverado-Sierra forum about doing the install myself. Short version; it wasn’t that hard following the directions combined with the YouTube video. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. The antenna mount looks really nice. I forgot to mention that the radio faceplates look crooked in the pictures but are “square” to the drivers viewpoint if I need to glance at them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I would tie into the trailer plug circuit and use the reverse power from there. Center pin on your 7 pin connector. Oops! Sorry, just reread your post. I don’t know how much current they supply but a small relay would be easy and cheap to implement. Use the cargo circuit to trigger the relay. Get the power from the 7 pin circuit. There will be plenty of amps for lights. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I have the Rostra version with the two mirror cameras, front grill camera and wireless trailer camera (you choose which rear view camera in a menu). Sine the Rostra and the Intellihaul systems are integrated with the in dash Nav radio they utilize the factory plugs with a new male and female connection. They don’t read a voltage on the turn signal circuit, they monitor the vehicle computer communication and switch the cameras based on that. I know there are different software versions needed for Chevy Vs GMC as I was sent a Chevy version by mistake which didn’t work correctly until the GMC version was installed.

  7. I mounted the control head of my Icom 5100 where the sunglass holder is. I can remove it and close the sunglass door as the Ram mount is quick to remove. The Kenwood TS 480 control head is mounted with another Ram mount in the large cavity in front of the cup holder. I originally had mounted my CTS Edge there but didn’t like it that low so I moved it near the drivers A pillar handle and mounted the radio head here. The auto-tune panel for the screwdriver antenna is tucked away in the console map pocket unless I’m using the Kenwood ( I stick a piece of Velcro on the dash and stick it on there). I ran the control cable above the headliner from the radio in the back seat. The power in the overhead console has a very small wire so I ran a larger one to power my dash cam. The power for the radios came from the upfitter plug by the driver side kick panel. I ran the coax in the cab through a hole I drilled near the rear seat cabin vent. If you run the coax through the vent the rubber flap will never close. I hope I was able to give you a few ideas. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I think it's Performance Diesel that's working on it. Can't remember which forum I read thread on but the OP was looking for AMP steps as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Looks Great. I'm sure it's even better when you have a topper instead of a tonneau cover. There are times I'm tempted to get one instead since you can fit so much more. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I have a Peragon tonneau cover. It folds like an accordion. See their website. Some people don't like the Peragon cover as it won't retract if there is something blocking it near the front of the bed. With the Slide Master it isn't an issue as I can slide the (toolbox in my case) out and the cover opens. I had a fabricator make the rack out of 1 X 2 aluminum. There are slots for a stud to mount it and I have two 6 foot L tracks from US Cargo on the bed rails. I can space the rack bars anywhere on the track. I chose the Peragon as I didn't want any plastic to deteriorate in the AZ sun. The paint will fade but I can touch it up. I have 1Up bike racks mounted as I do a lot of mountain biking with my buddies and my daughter. One of my buddies gives me grief that I will buy anything made in Wisconsin as I lived there most of my life (the tonneau cover, slide and rack are all made there). I did have a Bedslide on my 2013 Cadillac Escalade EXT. It was nice but it was made of steel and had a plywood deck. Good luck with your choices. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Here are some pics. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. I have a slide master on my truck. www.slide-master.com I chose one of the all aluminum models. I'll take a few pictures tomorrow. It really makes getting things out of the bed easy. I was able to do the install solo in a couple of hours. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. The install was fairly easy providing you have a good floor jack and jack stands. The hardest part is getting the pinch weld knocked or cut flat enough to get the top bolt in. I bought the wedges from McGaughy's in case I had noise or vibration from the changed pinion angle but haven't needed to install them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
