I finally got around to adding a 10k ohm resistor to the positive feed for the new LED. Here was the issue. When the dusk sensor kicks in it sends 5 volts to the positive lead (the white lead) in the transfer case shift knob harness. Even if the knob is in 2HI, the ground circuit for the 4HI indicator closes and allows current to flow. I suppose this is to provide some backlighting in the factory knob. Anyway, this was dimly lighting up my new LED even if in 2HI at night. The 10k ohm resistor reduces the current, significantly dimming the LED at night in 2HI. When in 4HI, all is good as the system sends 14 volts which allows the new LED to light brightly.
Thanks! Bought thru an online GM parts store - can't remember which one. It's the Intellihaul system. I tried the front camera on the grill at first but it wasn't giving good visibility right in front of the truck, that's why I lowered it. I'm in PA and we don't have front plates, so I was able to modify the front bumper plate filler and install the camera there. Kinda of a PITA to install, but I learned a lot of tricks that will help the next guy. I'll write them up when i have time.
Haven't driven it yet since i did the floors and rear wall. Still need to get the front seats in it. I really could notice it after i did the doors though. The B & C pillers are echo chambers. I should have snapped a before pic, but lots of cut outs in them that let noise resonate. I think the B pillars will be a huge improvement b/c they're right at our ears. Raining today - will try to get seats in if the rain stops and will let you know.
Had some spare time and decided to Dynamat the entire interior of my truck. I removed the seats, center console, B & C pillar covers and rear cab factory liner. I had done the doors a few weeks ago when I upgraded the speakers. Dynamated all exposed sheet metal then put Dynaliner down. While apart, I pulled the Bose sub out and replaced it with a Pioneer powered sub. Still need to get the front seats and console back in and then try it out. Was thinking about dropping the headliner and doing the roof, but need to get the truck back on the road. Here's a pic of the back of the cab. More pics at paauto.weebly.com - here you can see the pneumatic foot switch i installed on the dead pedal to control my light bar. Also a pic of my dog helping me.
I completely de-badged mine. Use a heat gun to warm them up then fishing line. Will need to re-heat during the process. Some advice - don't pull on the badges / letters with your fingers b/c there's a risk the opposite end will scratch the paint as you leverage it off - it happened to me in a spot. Then use the 3M wheel and finish up with adhesive remover. Pics of my truck at paauto.weebly.com
