I don't have my build sheet, so I dug out my window sticker and it indeed has the snow plow prep/camper package listed. So you are right, I'm just an idiot and overlooked/forgot it was on there. I lookup and keep a spreadsheet of all the RPO codes of my vehicles I own and that's what I was referencing to see if I had the snow plow package. My truck does not have the "VYU - PROVISIONS-SNOW PLOW PREP" or the "WMI - SHUTTERS-FRONT GRILLE, ACTIVE, UPR AND LWR" RPO codes which is why I was mistaken.
Now I'm a little curious myself. I have a '21 2500hd LT without snowplow prep package and I do not have active aero shutters. Curious what's change for 2021 or if they decided they weren't worth the trouble after only having them on the HD trucks for 1 year.
For the OEM the convex mirrors are manual adjustment. There might be a 3rd party mirror option that includes electronic adjustment of the convex mirrors, but it's not something I've looked into. I'd honestly love to have a fully electronic mirror with electronic controlled top mirror, convex, and extend, but I make do with what I have.
Pictures are showing up correctly now. Seems like a good use of space, since the scoop is just for show on the gas trucks. Not usually a big fan of cutting into a vehicle like that, but your install is clean which makes it look good.
There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for how they add LED lights to these trucks. Custom gets LED tail lights and LT can get LED headlights if you get the right package. If you want front and rear you have to go up to at least the LTZ trim. Maybe that's the point, it gets people to consider spending more for the higher trims/packages.
I got the Chevy all weather mats with my truck and so far they've done really well. I liked them for the same reason, they cover the middle hump, which is nice when it's muddy out and I have one of my kids sitting in the middle. We tend to do a lot of outdoor activities that can get messy and it's nice being able to just pull out the mats, hose them off, and put them back in. They don't necessarily come out super easy due to the odd shape, I move the seats back to make it easier. The fitment of the mats is surprisingly well, they don't slide around, and have done well containing all the dirt and sand. Not sure about longevity on these mats, since I haven't had them even a year yet, but only time will tell. Not sure what other options are out there, since I liked the Chevy mats.
Same warning doesn't show up in the 2020 user manual, so I'm guessing it's a problem discovered before releasing the 2021's.
I must have skipped over that part when I was looking through my manual, but it's really in there. If I were to hazard a guess, it's probably related to the variable steering on the higher level trims. Pressing the brake and throttle at the same time probably is a confusing thing for a system that trying to adjust based upon how you're driving.
I've not found a use for it except maybe using it to update the radio firmware. Honestly not sure why it's even an option since updates are extremely rare and you can normally do them utilizing a USB flash drive.
Do exactly what bird_dog0347 suggested. It definitely makes for a big improvement on brake feel and I've pretty much forgotten that it was an issue since I performed those steps myself a few weeks ago. Not sure why it works, but it does.
Oh I agree, I miss having that basic feature. I was like you and had assumed it would be there since I had the 8" radio with the DIC, but the more I looked into it I learned it isn't available on my truck with the radio I have.
I don't have the option either in my '21 2500 LT. If I'm not mistaken, I believe you have to have the upgraded radio in order to have that option. The standard 8" LT radio (IOR) isn't really much more than the radio that comes in the WT models, just with a larger screen. I believe you need to have their HD radio (IOS) at a minimum to get it and I'm certain their premium radio (IOT) has it.
There's a 13" difference between the two. Your current bed should be 5'8" and the 2500 is 6'9".
