  1. Which Corsa system did you go with? How do you like the sound and is there any drone or any weird tone when in V4 mode?
  2. Do you have that gap or opening when the cover is open? I know my truck does have a bit of a gap at upper corners of the tailgate. However, they were there before I installed my Bakflip. I don't get any water in my tailgate though.
  3. Is accessorizing your truck something that you are currently interested and/or investing in? IF YES: What is your to top priority when choosing accessories for your truck? (Quality/Price/Look/Reviews) YES - My "TOP" priority would be quality when accessorizing my truck. Prices, looks and reviews help make decisions, but quality is #1. Would you purchase something because it's priced cheaper, regardless of negative reviews, or options of higher-end, better quality products? (YES or NO) No - been there done that. Buying cheaper priced items often ends to early replacement of those parts. Negative reviews provide a bit of warning at times, but have have to be taken in context. Quality items may cost a bit more at times but usually perform better and last longer. Would you purchase an accessory purely based on how it looks? Even if that means the product does not work well or may not work at all? No - I'm typically buying accessories to use those accessories. Looks plays a factor when choosing between different brands/models but they have to perform.
  4. don't know about the +/- button being back-lit would be something that'd make a difference for me. The rain sensing wipers however would be nice. My wife's car has that & its very convenient. Better than intermittent wipers as the only wipe when needed instead of at preset intervals. We can adjust sensitivity as well so it doesn't go on for nearly no reason.
  5. +1000 on this one! There are lots of products out there that are really only there to provide piece of mind for those that don't know how something was actually designed. The capless fuel filler is one of them. Its really a pretty simple design that doesn't need any additional add ons to allow it to work properly.
  6. there are lots of vehicles that you cannot run traditional chains or cables on. My wife's VW Passat is one of them. After a lot research we purchased AutoSocks for her car. Now that we've had them & used them several times, we'll never buy regular chains again. http://autosock.us/ They fit great, super easy to install and remove, roll super smooth and work as well if not better than normal chains. The only problem with them is that they roll so smooth we have to really pay attention to speed. Still don't want to drive more the 35-40 mph with them on but its real easy to do because they're so smooth.
  7. Maybe very slightly, and may not be that noticeable. 22" wheels leave you with shorter stiffer sidewalls to work with. If you're looking to stay with 22's, and looking to improve the ride, you'll most likely need to go up in overall size of tires. However as you go up in sizes you may find most choices are LT tires and not P rated tires. LT tires typically are made for heavier loading and therefore run stiffer than P-rated tires. Another option is to run at a little lower air pressure. You'll soften the tire some by doing that. HOWEVER!!! With 22's you then run the risk of damaging your rims more easily. 22's already have more risk of rim damage due to the shorter sidewalls, lowering your air pressure increases that risk. 22's can look nice, but that look often comes at the expense of ride quality. If overall diameter of tires are the same 20's ride better than 22's. 18" wheels ride smoother than 20's.
  8. finally have her fixed and back in my possession. New mounting bracket, control module and bolt now replaced. Under warranty. Woo Hoo!
  9. It does look a bit exposed and possibly easy to damage. In my case I'm not so sure it was installed correctly. The hook/tab at the top of the bracket should be at the bottom of the slot in the frame. If you zoom in on my pic you can see the impression from the bracket on the frame & the top of the bracket appears to have installed too high up and not fully set in the slots. Just my guess as to what was the main cause of my issue.
  10. Nope, no truck yet. Replacement bracket has arrived, but the control module is coming from the manufacturer & won't arrive until tomorrow. Then they need to find a new bolt to mount the new bracket to the frame. The bracket is coming from GM but requires a special tapered bolt that is on back order. They found a dealership that has one in stock & ordered it. They just don't know if it'll get shipped out overnight today or not.
  11. I'll have to check the build date when I get the truck back. If I'm lucky that might be today. However, parts had to be ordered as they are replacing the bracket and control module which may or may not arrive today.
  12. yes, the truck is less than 6 months old & this is a warranty issue.
  13. I believe they changed the design and location of the flapper valves in 2017. It's in front of my stock muffler on my 5.3L GMC Sierrra Denali.
  14. Truck is at the dealership & they've now said they'll need to order a new mounting bracket and control module. Truck will be in the shop for a couple days waiting on parts.
  15. Yup, almost 1 1/2" exactly. It's 1 3/8" on the drivers side and 1 1/2" on the passenger.
