MVI does the front screen conversion. They take all the guess work out of it, not that Phil doesn't know what he's doing because I used plenty of his mods for my truck, I went through MVI just because of the programming and they build a harness to swap the CD player out for the BluRay player also they swap the screens and supply the BluRay player. It literally takes about a half hour to swap everything if you have any type of mechanical skills.
Like other members said we upgraded to what you have in your truck. What you could do is take the top of your center console off and flip the rubber tray were the phone rests while charging. What that will do is put the phone all the way back over the actual charger. That's what I did with mine and my S8 stays charging anywhere it sits even with a case on it.
Ok I'll see if I have some time this weekend to pull the seat and get some pictures for you. I'll also see if my buddy can get some schematics from the dealership he works at to try and help you out also. Anything I can do to help you help more people get the mods they want the happier everyone will be, plus this should be a dumbed down version of what you did in your truck for the seat memory setup, not that any of this is easy. Lol
Phil if you want I'll PM you my vin if you have the ability to get vehicle specific schematics
A95 is my seat code yes mine are the black cloth
A95 is my seat code
I figured that was at least I could do since you've helped me in upgrading my mirrors, adding the autodim wiring, doing the wireless charging upgrade and telling me where I had to land the wire for my heated steering wheel to work. Phil you are truly a mad scientist in the best meaning possible and if I ever find a good set of heated/cooled seats then I will need assistance in that venture as well. Thanks for all the research you do for us to upgrade our trucks as well.
My 2017 has the power passenger seat and it is only a LT model. It is cloth with heated option as well so it shouldn't be that bad to add it on with Phil's help. The easiest way I would think to look for one is Car-part.com it is a site that ties into alot of junk yards across the USA and some Canadian ones that you should specifically look for a passenger seat with power.
Very nice work. Thank God I have a 2017 that all I had to do is swap mine out. But that is definitely an impressive upgrade and once again the members on this forum are just amazing at what they want to with their trucks.
Hey Phil I purchased the DVD upgrade from MVI and had to send my hmi to White automotive and the screen to MVI for them to do something with the screen as well as the programming to the hmi. Not sure exactly what they did but just thought you should know.
No it doesn't and the nice thing about using the harness is the light bar has a 4 flat on it so it makes it really easy to connect it without losing the factory one if you need to tow a small trailer. Picture is the part number and brand I used. As long as you have the factory 7 pin setup,you simply unplug the factory harness from the bumper and it's goes right in between.
I used a jumper that goes in between the factory 7 pin plug and wiring behind the bumper that gives you a 4 flat behind the bumper and just t-tapped the reverse wire in that harness so none of the factory wiring was compromised. It's not the fact that I can't get it replaced it's the fact that I'm tired of having to replace it plus my bedrug velcro strip doesn't stick to the tailgate anymore because if having to replace it.
Not acting up right now but the 5th from the right is tempurmental and the 1 led on the right lower step pad is out. But as you can see I like the anzo taillights as well and haven't had issues with them.
