Been looking through this thread and if anyone would like a cheaper alternative to matching OEM while still making it look nice and clean here is an option. This is my plan. Mount this in engine bay: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075M4PRG2/?coliid=I3U7V0T7XBPNUH&colid=1J222WOD3I32L&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it Run new wires from X1 plug for AUX 1-4 (X1 pins 10-13) -Terminals for X1 harness: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/TE-Connectivity/5-962885-1-Loose-Piece?qs=sGAEpiMZZMve4%2fbfQkoj%2bG6zpObDOwGRn7gVy0C5fa0%3d Wire from X1 to relay in engine bay (relay pin 86) Wire from battery to buss bar (distribute power) then to a fuse and then to each relay (relay pin 30 & 85) Wire from relay to powered accessory (relay pin 87) This should keep everything still clean and you could run the wires through the 'Upfitter' hole in the steering column gasket as mentioned earlier and then wrap wires all in split loom and attach to firewall to keep wires out of the way and clean. Haven't gone through and done this yet but in theory reading through this should be the same thing just a little cheaper alternative. I also attached a quick wiring diagram to help. I am open to ideas too if someone does not think it would work. Final Schematic.pdf
cfields replied to pgamboa's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsPgamboa was a HUGE help for me in the process! i got rid of my tiny DL8 mirrors and slapped on some aftermarket tow mirrors. I used his DIY harness and it was a breeze to install! Instructions were very clear and pictures helped a TON! He is a great resource for the project! I also had to install the RZY harness as I have a 2014. my truck was wired for turn signals already but not the running/clearance lights or cargo lights. If anyone is going to attempt the RZY harness install i recommend watching pgamboa's video and having the written instructions handy, it is a massive PITA to put in. Took me about 6 hours to install that alone! Start on the drivers side first as all the BCM connections are there, when that entire side is done you can put the BCM back before wiring the passenger side.
I have these headlights and would love to know what all was involved with opening them up. Could you provide the steps you took to accomplish it? I am wondering if I open these up or retro fit my old halogen ones. Thanks!
earlier in the thread someone was asking about LED piping? I think i found some!! Looks like there are a few colors out there also. I think I may have to order some! https://www.ebay.com/i/351614121048?chn=ps&dispItem=1
I have Borla S-Type on my '14 Silverado 5.3l, and it is perfect! It has just the right amount of growl when you step on it but quiets down when cruising down the road at highway speeds. I disabled the AFM in my truck so i can't say how bad the V4 drone is but i like it. Cold starts are awesome! I had a custom install and ran a y pipe after the muffler and went straight back with a slight turn down at the end.
