  1. 2014+ Suspension Lifts

    I’m looking to put an add-a-leaf on my 2017 LT Z71 but I’m concerned it will make the rear too stiff. Are you happy with the rear suspension with the extra leaf?
  2. Thanks! The carpet on the box didn't turn out great and is something to work on for the next one. I am still happy with the result and I love the sound. As was mentioned earlier in the thread, I ran the power down one side of the truck (the driver's side in my case) and the signal cables went to the passenger side. I went with a Kicker 12CX300.1 600 Watt Mono Class D Amplifier. The sub is a Rockford-Fosgate P3SD4-10 10 inch. I have done audio work in every vehicle I have ever owned and I have always had good experience with RF subwoofers. Good luck with your project and let me know if you need more info.
  3. I built my own. It was the first time I ever built a box but I wanted a sub enclosure and storage on the other side. There exists under seat storage and boxes for one or two subs but nothing that combines the two. Choices for the double cab are particularly limited.
  4. I did almost exactly as you described on my 2017 LT double cab. I added a sub that is powered by an added amp but gets its signal from a line out converter tapped in to the rear speaker signal. I also replaced the front door and dash speakers. I plan to do the back doors but it’s low on my list. My thoughts: 1. The sub is absolutely worth it and really adds to the sound in the cab. 2. The new door speakers, even powered from the factory system, sound much better than the OEM speakers. 3. The aftermarket dash speakers sound exactly the same as the OEM speakers. I’d skip those if I were you.
  5. LTZ Headlights

    I added a slightly longer video of the LTZ lights in my LT. If you're familiar with the LTZ lights and how they work, the video won't be anything new. The lights function exactly as they do from the factory in a LTZ truck. All that was needed was a resistor on each side to make the turn signals work correctly. I forgot to put the truck in gear to show the day mode but that works, too, I promise.
  6. I finally got a chance to wash the truck. I took some photos & video while I was at it. Happy New Year, everyone!
  7. LTZ Headlights

    I did Klearz before I upgraded to the LTZ lights. The Klearz look awesome. The only drawback is that it was VERY difficult (for me, at least) to take the headlamp assemblies apart and get them back together. I didn’t have more lights to practice on so I only got one shot at it. I’m sure I could have improved it with more practice but the permaseal is hard to get through. This was my finished product with the Klearz lenses:
  8. Front Valence Removal

    There is definitely a thread on here with at least one forum member that opted to cover the “mustache” with color matched vinyl. I will try to find it.
  9. Welcome. I love the truck. Nice choice.
  10. Remote start...heated seats

    I don’t know how fast they heat so they might not be warm yet if you get in the truck soon after starting it. My experience with this (I haven’t read anything in the manual that confirms it) is that the seats ARE heating but you won’t have any lights. Once you insert the key and turn it on, the seat heat shuts off and you have to turn them back on with the button if you want the seats to continue heating. As long as I remote start and wait several minutes, the seats are definitely warm when I get in the truck.
  11. Marv88 2016 Silverado LS Regular Cab 5.3L

    Looks great! I did something similar in my double cab to retain the factory storage for the jack handle. Nicely done.
  12. It's been a little while but I have made a few minor updates to the truck since my last post. Here's the new list: Mods so far: Fabtech 6" Gen II suspension lift Fuel Krank 20x10 (-24mm offset) wheels Maxxis Bighorn 325/60/R20 tires McNally 16oz. dual-valve catch can K&N Blackhawk intake New cat-back exhaust with Flowmaster Super 44 muffler Retrofitted GM camper mirrors (swapped door harnesses for light functionality) Replaced mirror lights with smoked lens marker lights and Boost Auto parts relay for turn signals Rockford-Fosgate P3SD4-10 subwoofer in custom enclosure Replaced tail lights with LED bulbs and resisters Replaced headlamp assemblies with LTZ OEM assemblies Replaced door speakers and dash tweeters Painted calipers Frame tube plugs As much as I liked the black truck with black everything, I decided to add a touch of color and painted the OEM calipers blue. I expect I will eventually replace them with upgraded brakes but I like the subtle touch for now. I was also very unhappy with the quality of the Westin ProTraxx 4 step bars and preferred the OEM style so I replaced the Westin bars with the GM 4-inch round steps. Finally, I "borrowed" an idea from the "$50 mods" thread and added some plugs to the ends of the cross members in the frame. Those holes aren't easy to see unless the truck is lifted (mine is) and I didn’t care for the look with the open ends. It was a cheap mod and, in my opinion, really cleaned up the look in the rear wheel wells. I'm still trying to save some cash to re-gear to 4.10 but that might be a little while so I expect the truck won't change too much in the near future. I hope everyone has a great holiday season.
  13. Forum user pgamboa is pretty much the authority here on electrical stuff and tow mirrors. He can likely get you what you need. That said, I ordered what I needed from Boost Auto parts and I’m happy with it. They should be easy to find with a quick Google search.
  14. To add to this (I accidentally used an old account here - sorry, mods), this all assumes the wheel speed sensor is, in fact, the problem. geswek makes a great point that the problem could be caused by the lift install and an issue with wiring. I agree that you should take a good look at everything before going to ask for parts from the dealer. One of the things I noticed on my lift is the guys that installed it did NOT replace some of the plastic wire restraints on the rear axle after the lift. At first I thought it was an oversight but I realized later it was probably intentional to leave more slack in the wiring to account for the lift. You may want to verify none of your wires have pulled loose from the additional distance between your frame and the wiring going to the rear diff.
  15. Of the two you posted, I also like the Vapor wheels. Not to complicate matters but I'm running Fuel Krank wheels on my black 2017 and I'm very happy with the look. They're similar to the Hostage wheels but with a few brushed aluminum accents. I like the deep lip, too, as you mentioned. If you haven't looked already, go check out http://customwheeloffset.com/. They have a huge searchable database of trucks and wheels to give you some great ideas on how things will look.
