  1. Center Console Rattle

    I have the same rattle on my (new to me) 2015, just hadn't annoyed me enough until this last weekend to try and find the culprit! Thanks for the video, I'm going to tear into mine tonight and see what's fallen into the console to cause the rattle. I've taken everything out of the console (including the plastic divider) and the rattle is still there so there's got to be something inside causing it. I'll post if it's anything interesting lol...
  2. For what it's worth when I installed the electric pop & lock on my 2015 tailgate I had to loosen the screw that the lock mechanism pivoted on to get it to work properly. The screw was too tight to let the lock mechanism pivot freely. If you remove the long plate on the inside of the tailgate you can access the mechanism. If I remember correctly it's a black screw going through a white plastic bushing. Might just need to lube the screw if it was working fine before...
  3. Added LED light strips to the inside of the topper so that I can see in the bed when it's dark. I already had the factory under the bed rail cargo lights, so I just tapped into those. Wired in disconnects so that I can disconnect them if I ever need to remove the topper. They are LED rope lights from Cabelas. Had adhesive backing on them which worked ok to get them attached to the carpeted headliner, but once the sun hit the topper and heated it up the tape started letting go so I used hot glue every foot or so to keep them up. It's brighter than daylight in there now! Next step is tap into the dash cargo light switch circuit and add a switch for the lights inside the topper.
  4. Just a shadow. The cap fits really well all around. The installers did a great job of getting it centered on the bed. I'd say there's less than 1/4 inch overhang all around - just enough for a drip edge.
  5. Camper shell...??

    Thanks for the tip! I'll take a look at it.
  6. Camper shell...??

    I haven't noticed it rattling or sliding on it's own at all. It seems like a sung enough fit in the track to keep it in place.
  7. Just got my Leer 100XL topper installed last weekend. Went with the removable sliding front window, electronic lock, and tracks for a future roof rack. So glad I read up on here about toppers before I bought, otherwise I probably wouldn't have went with the removable window. Was on some dusty roads this weekend and I was surprised how much dirt collected between the cab and topper windows. So nice and easy to just remove the window to clean. I'm loving it so far! LED strips going in this weekend for interior light.

  9. Just did this mod last weekend, the light they throw off are amazing! The pallets in the first picture are roughly 50 yards away and lit up like daylight! One thing I didn't find in reading through the thread was what wires to tap into for the tail light/reverse lights (but easily could have missed it in 9 pages). I pulled the tail lights and used T taps into the wires going to the reverse bulbs. Black wire from the light going to the black wire on the reverse light, and red wire from the light going to the green wire on the reverse light. I know some don't like T taps, but I've never had an issue with them, just crimped the metal connector down over the wires with pliers before closing the plastic cap on the connector. I also wrapped everything up with electrical tape before closing it all back up. After fighting with the included bolts/washers for a few minutes and realizing what a frustration it would be, I followed what others had done and used #10 3/4" stainless steel screws from home depot to attach the lights to the bumper. Much easier than fighting it, and since there won't be any stress on the lights themselves I'm sure they'll hold just fine. If not, I can always go back and fight with the other hardware later. Great thread to find, and hopefully my 2 cents helps someone!
  10. Installed the Rigid flush mount ignite lights in the bumper steps last weekend, it's amazing how much light they throw off! The pallets you can see in the second picture are probably 40 yards away and were lit up like daylight! Glad I found that thread on the forum
  11. Hi all, Just brought home my new (to me) 2015 Silverado a little over a week ago and found this forum. This was the first mod I wanted to make, and just wanted to say the instruction on this thread were great! Took about an hour for me from start to finish. Biggest help to me were the pictures of the actual wires and knowing that they were bigger wires than most in the bundle. Hope that helps someone else! Oh, and howdy! Matt
