  1. Cab marker lights install, part 1

    What brand lights did you buy? They shouldn’t have any condensation if they’re sealed. You should put a bead of silicon like I did.
  2. Cab marker lights install, part 1

    I bought OEM lights from one of the discount GM parts stores online. I paid more than what aftermarket lights cost but I figure that’s what came from the factory so they should be good. I put a bead of clear silicom between the lights and roof when I installed them. Never had any issues with water leaks or burnt out LEDs.
  3. Cab marker lights install, part 1

    The connector is supposed to plug into a spot on the passenger side fuse panel. Some trucks have pin 3 powered (with headlights on) and some don’t. Mine didn’t so I had to find another source of power to turn on the marker lights. This is is what I did. btw I’m the OP who did this install....
  4. I have a 2018 Silverado 2500 HD LTZ Duramax. The truck is pretty much fully loaded and I don’t like the center console. The 1500 truck I used to own had the front bench seat; actually two buckets with a center seat that the back can fold down to be a arm rest/console. Has anyone converted the center console to the front “bench” seat? I would like to make the conversion but am wondering what’s involved and are the parts just a bolt on? Any link to anyone that has done it too would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. Winter Tire Setups

    I’m in Ontario and I just bought a set of BF Goodrich KO2’s. Never drove them in the snow with my 2500 Duramax but I had them in a Jeep Cherokee and they worked as good as any “winter” tire I’ve tried in the past; Michelin X-Ice and Hankook I-Pike
  6. Parking light problem

    Turned out to be a loose wire in a connector at the parking lamp. Repair was covered under warranty.
  7. Tire load range rating

    The only thing I haul now is a 3000 lb fishing boat and ocassionally I may have the back loaded up with firewood. I drive conservatively and don’t corner hard. So from what you’re saying I should be ok.
  8. I have a brand new 2018 Silverado 2500 HD that has the factory Goodyear SR-A all season tires (load range E). I have the opportunity to buy a set of brand new BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2’s at a real good price. However they are a load range C tire. I don’t tow or carry any heavy loads often so would these load range C tires be OK to use on my truck ? Load range C tires (KO2’s) are rated for 2755lbs. Load tange E tires (KO2’s) are rated for 3195 lbs.

  10. How's My Deal?

    Good luck in keeping it clean !!
  11. New shoes

    Are you putting those tires on the stock wheels, or on a set of aftermarket wheels?
  12. I just bought a set of “PYQ” 17x7.5 wheels, including wheel covers and tire pressure sensors, for $300. My intentions are to use these wheels with a set of tires, yet to be determined, as a dedicated winter wheel/tire combo. My problem is I notice the wheel covers have plastic wheel but covers that look like they’re supposed to be threaded on to the actual wheel nuts. I didn’t get any wheel nuts with the wheels when I bought them so I need to buy 32 wheel nuts that will allow the plastic caps to thread on to them. Does anyone know a GM part number, have a picture of what the nuts I’m looking for actually look like, or possible have a e-Bay link.
  13. True Cost of Ownership

    I bought my 2018 Silverado 2500 LTZ diesel in August and I got $12,500 off as well as 0% financing over 72 months.
  14. Parking light problem

    I was thinking it may be a BCM glitch. I’m taking it back to the dealer since it’s under warranty.

    What is TCO KBB ??
