Why do GM aluminum alloy rims all eventually go to s***? 2015 Sierra, rims saw two winters before I bought snows on steel wheels... I mean, I'm guessing it's from salt getting under the clear coat, but why? Been an issue forever, Dad's 04 Silvy did the same and now the whole rim looks like hell.
I bought snow tires for my 2015 last year, what a difference. But my options were do it right and suck it up and buy snows and rims, or take off the crappy Bridgestone Duellers that came on the truck, that still have half their life left, and put on Defenders instead. I still want the Defenders once the Duellers are shot, especially since the Duellers will break lose pulling away on from a red light on wet pavement.... But after a winter on snow tires, I get it, there really is a difference. I always had weight in the 2wd '98 I drove before, but never have in my 4wd.

No I don't, I have BPS G7 LEDs in the headlights, have had them for a couple years and they aren't bad, but the fogs will help them out a lot. The lights match well, thought I had a picture with the headlights on but I'll have to grab one.
Took the snows off and installed my XB LEDs while I had the fronts off to give me some more room to get under the bumper. Can't believe the difference. Had a license plate bulb out too so I put a pair of Zevos in there.
FarmKid92 replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomSaw one of these driving around Kapuskasing, Ontario today while snowmobiling through... Or at least I think it was one of these. Had to have been a 2500 at most, single rear wheel, but had the towing mirrors all covered in camo too. Didn't get a good look at it though.
No problems with oncoming traffic with projectors, the shutter keeps the light cutoff point down below the oncoming drivers line of vision. But a higher color rating will make the light output more blue/purple and make it not seem as bright, especially on a dark rainy night. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
I've had the BPS LEDs for a year now, everything tucked inside the dust cap as advertised and no issues. Noticeable difference over stock halogens, found they lit the ditches better. Forward throw is better but not great - though signs do illuminate quite a ways off in the distance. Overall I'm happy with them and they are plug and play. Haven't bit the bullet on a pair of Morimoto LED fogs to go with but I think that pair would be the ticket... Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk
It's driven by exchange rate here. I looked at a 2013 CC Kodiak Edition with 50000km on it in Dec 2015 and bought a new one for $9k more, same options. They are making a killing selling these into the US with the exchange right now. But like I said, I'll find out how good of a deal it really is on Thursday.
Just to give you guys an idea what its like north of the border... My dealer called me today out of the blue wanting to know if I'd be interested in a new truck, and to set up an appointment to price one. I'm going Thursday. Got home tonight and there was a letter in the mail from GM on behalf of my dealer as well, basically saying trade values have never been higher because of the dollar, demand is strong south of the border, and dealers here can't get their hands on used trucks at auction. The letter says I should be able to get into a new truck for equal or slightly higher payments. We will see Thursday, but apparently they had a list of owners they are calling. I have a 2015 CC Sierra Kodiak with 24000km.
Type G Morimoto XB LED Fogs are $166 CDN on Amazon.ca with free shipping. I'll be surprised of this group buy beats that by the time we factor the exchange rate. Type G are the ones for GMC. https://www.amazon.ca/Morimoto-Type-LED-Projector-Light/dp/B00XA3CE58/ref=sr_1_4?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1489715601&sr=1-4 *edited to change URL to desktop site and not mobile
The place I bought my MX4 from had an undercover model (think it was a flex) there as well, wasn't this one because the MX4 was the only one with the universal tailgate seal. Couple things the sales rep mentioned were the undercover's rails don't sit on the truck bed rails at all, so in theory the cover could be pushed down into the bed with enough force - probably unlikely though. The bigger problem to me was that when folded all the way open, the prop rods hold it straight up and down, rather than leaning it against the cab - so it becomes a sail. Dealer said the owner manual for the undercover states speed limits for driving with the cover vertical as well - might have been in the 50-60mph range but I don't remember for sure. At the end of the day they are almost identical and made by Truck Hero (parent company) anyway... And the Flex and MX4 were the same price.
