  1. The only thing I had to take apart was the air box. Granted my truck came with projectors so no need to tear much apart at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’d ditch those ASAP if it were me. I had a set of similar LEDS in my 15 Sierra SLT before I bit the bullet and went with HIDs from TRS. BEST MONEY IVE EVER SPENT! The LEDs scattered the light so bad it was worse than OEMs when driving in snow at night. The HID kit I’ve got is the Morimoto 5500K 35W and they light the road up like it’s daytime.

  3. Cold Air Intake 5.3 question

    I have an airaid jr kit on my 15 Sierra which I installed last summer. I have also noticed over this last winter that the truck drinks the fuel more than I ever recall it doing in the past. Is it a fluke or does the install have something to do with it, I don’t know. But you’re not alone in noticing a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Simple Secondary Cargo Light Switch

    Awesome mod!! I’m gonna be doing this for hunting season when my gear is under by tonneau cover and getting ready in the dark is hard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Strobe light set ups

    Does it maintain factory warranty on the vehicle or will it void it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Strobe light set ups

    How long have you had it installed? Have you seen any issues with it at all? Error codes or bulbs burnt out? The reviews are just okay from what I’ve read at least. I’m just trying to avoid drilling holes for switches in the cab. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I really like mine. My brother mentioned how much more get up it’s got than before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Rear wiper blade replacement

    It’s what my dealer and several GM techs I know told me. If the Acadia isn’t that way, then that’s good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Rear wiper blade replacement

    Dealer only replacement. They have a special tool to get it off and OE is the only one who makes a blade for it. I found this out on our 2011 Terrain we had and from what I’ve been told it’s the same on our 17 Acadia. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The mount was bent and when I pointed it out to them and explained this is why it keeps breaking they agreed. They fixed the mount because it’s not sold separately. Once it was fixed and a new bushing installed, there have been no more issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Bilstein shocks thread

    I’m guessing the bump stop you all are taking about are on the front suspension? If this is the case, my truck doesn’t have any. Don’t think it even came with any. Assuming these are the rubber stoppers on the frame to prevent the upper control arm hitting it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just straightened the piece on the tailgate. They told me if it broke again they’d try to get GM to replace the whole tailgate. So far, not another problem with it. I also added the DeeZee tailgate assist spring though. I’m sure this has helped with it not breaking anymore too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What tires to buy?

    I’m running 295/55-20 Toyo Open Country AT 2’s. I love the look and the tread wear is amazing! I’ve got just under 46,000 on them and it appears i have about 50-60% left on the tread life. I will say my mileage dropped a TON when i put these on from the OE tires but these have outlasted those by almost 10K already with LOTS to go. I drive mostly highway and some country chip sealed roads. I did have an issue with getting them to balance when I first put the tires and wheels on but since having them road forced, the balance issue is gone. Here’s a few pics.

  14. Strobe light set ups

    That’s a real nice set up. My truck is an SLT with the full center console so that switch set up is out for me. I also have a LED tailgate light strip so it would be nice to integrate that as well if it’s possible. Has anyone used the speed turtle thing? I’m afraid it would mess with my HIDs.

  15. Hey All, I’m looking for ideas on switch mounts and light mounts for strobe lights on our trucks. I am on a volunteer fire Dept and we are blue and white light authorized and am looking for ideas about where to mount the strobe lights on the front and rear. I really don’t want to drill and mount in the taillights, so that’s out. I am currently running 4 little bullet style lights in the grill and two in the rear steps, all white with a blue dash light facing forward. I’m looking to achieve more visibility and earning for driver I am approaching at night and during the day. Some people just don’t pay attention or look in their mirrors to see upcoming or approaching emergency vehicles. Post up some pics and switch set ups if you have any. Thanks!
