  1. No, I didn't take any pictures while I was installing. If thought about it but once I got into working everything I forgot. I might one day get around to taking some pictures and doing a write-up on what I did.
  2. If you have the 7 plug trailer lights, you can use a pigtail to split out a 5 wire plug (the fifth wire is reverse). I used Curt 56584 to wire some lights on my truck that use parking, turn, and reverse. It makes for a pretty clean install.
  3. Fair enough. I hadn't thought about trying to rinse out the last bit of particulate.
  4. That's a lot of work compared to getting essentially the same effect out of a pump like this: https://www.amazon.com/YaeTek-Excellent-Extractor-Scavenge-Transfer/dp/B01MZAE56R/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=12v+oil+pump&qid=1560177274&s=gateway&sr=8-3 Is there a reason you went with adding a drain plug versus just pumping the fluid out?
  5. You probably need to replace the driver's side window switch. It communicates with the BCM to control both the windows and the door open switch; I don't know if it does the locks.
  6. Mine does it, especially going up hill at low RPM. I've had no success getting it fixed. Luckily it doesn't happen much, so I just love with it.
  7. Were the overflow incidences at the same pump? If you're putting the nozzle in all the way, it's going to be the nozzle's fault if it overflows on/prior to the first click. I have a 17 with 35k and don't think I've ever had an overfill.
  8. OPT7 Sidekick Sequential Running Board Lights
  9. I have one of these: https://m.samsclub.com/ip/trunk-organizer-purp-in-club-515833/prod20650138?xid=plp_product_1_28 It works well, but also collapses.
  10. Pretty much spot on. One thing I'll add because it worried me for a little bit. I put mine at 35 psi cold (it was close to freezing), but driving down the road on a trip my tires would all easily reach 41+ psi. Well I got concerned about overinflation until I looked at the tire rating. My stock tires are rated for 44 psi cold. So overinflation of the tire isn't going to be an issue if you only air up to 35 psi.
  11. I thought they calculated fuel mileage based off the mass air flow sensor, hence why it's always so unreliable. It would make sense if they measured fuel, but I didn't think there was a fuel flow sensor.
  12. I wouldn't think gearing would matter. I thought speed and mileage were calculated by wheel speed sensors. For the gearing to matter, they'd have to calculate mileage based on engine RPM, transmission gear, rear gearing, and tire size. Wheel speed sensor just needs tire size.
  13. Window Auto Up Feature

    It's an all around mess. It would require switches, programming, and I believe motors (the motors have to support feedback for auto up). GM Upfitters has wiring diagrams you can look through. It's a digital signal from the driver's side switches, to the BCM, to the other switch, then to the motor (if I'm remembering correctly). I was looking because I'd like a single switch to control all the windows, but didn't figure out a good way other than running wires to all four motors.
  14. I'm looking for something for the rear window for the same reason but can't find anything. A tip though, I have these for my side windows: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Safe-Fit-Safe-Temp-Cling-Shades-Extra-Large-2-PK-2-0-PACK/44965620. They just cling to the windows and I cut the little temperature thing out allowing full use of the windows. I just have no desire to stick a bunch of them across the rear window.
  15. I've had good experience with 1/2 ton trucks and weight distributing hitches. I'm not sure how you're attaching your chains, but an easy way is to hook up the trailer and then jack the trailer and truck up, hook up the chains, then lower everything. You can measure the rear wheel wells with no load and then adjust the chains to where you're at the same height with the trailer attached.
