Does anyone have any experience installing one of the AMI swing step's? https://www.amazon.com/All-Sales-19285GK-Gloss-Powder/dp/B00W5SIH7S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1545010536&sr=8-1&keywords=ami+swing+step+grille+guard#customerReviews They're relatively cheap, have a little more function then most bull bars, and look a little better then the standard bull bar imo. Just wondering if anyone has actually seen and better yet installed one. Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know of any safety features built into the awd that would keep it in awd? I got in my truck last night and while the dial was clearly turned to 2wd the light was still on awd. Im wondering if it the dial wasn't lined up, its a faulty dial, or gm programmed something to know the road conditions were less than ideal.
Any idea what the power split ratio is on our trucks in auto? A few years ago I sat through a BMW presentation on x drive and how they were the only suv awd system that could independently send 100% of the power to a single tire. Pretty cool demonstration on how none of the other awd systems could figure out how to power out of a traction loss with 3 of the 4 wheels out. I wonder how our trucks awd stacks up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-FoUTPja4Y
Two questions in regard to the auto 4wd 1. Is there any way to tell when the truck switches to 4wd while in auto? 2. Do you need to come to a complete stop to switch from 2 to 4? For the record I always assumed you do but if Auto works how I think most of us think it does it switches from 2 to 4 while driving and vis versa so part of me thinks that you should be able to engage 4wd at any speed.
Can anyone help me find the thread/tutorial where all the interior gray plastic of the dash is removed and plasti dip'd? I am 99% sure I saw it on this forum but the search function of this site sucks and I can not find it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I got mine for about $50 from gmpartsdirect's amazon store this week. I think I found it a couple bucks cheaper on ebay like ten minutes after ordering but oh well. Install was fairly simple except the clip that holds the stock pillar on barely had the clearance to come off and so I marred it up a little but not a big deal. Install was very simple otherwise. I did run my dash cam wire up through the pillar so it may be the cause of my problem but I have about an eighth of an inch gap between the new pillar cover and my headliner on the windshield side. Hoping I just get used to it because I don't see any good solutions and its not a real problem. Only thing of real concern when installing is make sure you tuck the new handle in behind the weather stripping. Even with the stubborn clip the whole job took me five minutes. I'll try to remember to take a picture of the gap later.
I'd put them on blast and start calling on my network to see what ability I have to reach the owner of the dealership. Social media is a very powerful tool and a business's reputation is everything. Whether its the owner or the gm I would state my case one last time and give them one last opportunity to find a solution. If they aren't cooperative I would remind them that they have profiles on yelp, google, facebook, BBB and the list goes on. As well as having a network of friends family and colleagues that I would personally refer away from them. Be firm and give the appearance of enough confidence to be willing to go to war with them. As a final touch once they fix your seats tell them "Thanks scum" really fast! Final note, record as much as you can whether it be phone calls, videos of in person discussions, or written communications.
